Went to newly launched Watami @ Woodlands Causeway Point for dinner with my familoves today.

For people who is not aware of Watami, do drop by them, it's an absolute tummy-and-money worthy restaurant!
Watami, is an Japanese Casual Restaurant ,which has quite a number of resturaunts scattered around Singapore. Watami currently has a few restaurants located in Ion Orchard, The Central, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Junction 8, J Cube, The Star Vista and the newly launched on 11th December 2011 at Causeway Point.

Okay, so straight to the point.
We actually ordered the Deluxe Set (For 2) to cater to Three of us. T
The portion is kinda more than what I expected and in fact ,too much for us to finish.

The Deluxe Set costs $69 nett.
Inclusive of
-Casear Salad (Usual Price $9.80)
-Tempura Moriawase (Usual Price $13.80)
-NEW Sashimi Mori 3 (Usual Price $17.80)
-Ishiyaki Sudamini Don (Usual Price $11.80)
-Konbu Dashi Sumo Nabe (Usual Price $16.80)
-Hire Katsu Tamago Toji (Usual Price $11.80)
-Yuzu Calpis Soda (Usual Price $3.80)

TOTAL VALUE = $89.40.
TOTAL SAVINGS= $20.40.

★-Inclusive of HALF PRICE deal of
-Hot Chocolate Brownie (Usual Price $6.80)
Now at only $3.40.
-Chocolate Parfait (Usual Price $6.80)
Now at only $3.40.

FOR REFERENCE, the set meals cater to 2 & 4 pax respectively.
Of course, if you would like to order Ala-carte, the main menu is another one which is not included in the pictures below.
-The Ishiyaki Sutamini Don. (★★★☆☆)

-5 pieces of delicate 5x5cm hot chocolate brownie.
-Served warmly with hot chocolate dipping and freezing cool chocolate ice cream. #sweettreats #delicious #fingerlickingood

(Top up $3.40 if you ordered the set meal to enjoy this offer!)

Overall, I might patronize this outlet again as I'm truly in love with the food.
The atmosphere is certainly not very relaxing as you would actually get smelly and oily after eating the hot pots.
Furthermore, the price is not really pocket friendly if you dine in for two at $69.
However, if you are ordering the set meal of two for three, it's kinda more worth the price as the food portion is actually quite a lot for three of us to finish.

Also, the service is not really satisfying as I had to repeatly request for my ice water being refilled and for my orders to be processed faster. The dishes are serving one by one in the wrong order such as the main course, side dish, drinks, side dish & lastly main dish again. Hence, I'm not really satisfied as you won't want to continue with the sashimi right after eating the pork rice in stone pork as the taste is truly affected.

So, try your luck there! Good food, poor service, average atmosphere.

Wooo, the photos of the food still makes me linger over the Gong pao chicken (宫保雞丁). tongue
Had my dinner at Serangoon Nex today, was searching up and down, looking for the right restaurant after my last day of Christmas shopping before Monday.

Was actually expecting to dine in another Japanese Resturant, but yeah after our shopping, the closing time were also near. So, we stroll around quickly, and got attracted by the smell when we walked pass.

For dinner, we actually ordered the Set meal for Four to cater to Three of us. But the portion is up to my expectation, and too much for us to finish actually.

The set meal costs $58.90++.
Inclusive of
-One Large Hot Pot Chicken. (Available in Spicy or non-spicy.)
-One Large Tom Yum Prawn. (Available in Spicy or less-spicy.)
-One handmade Fish or Prawn Paste.
- Jar of Soft Drink. (Pepsi.)
- Four White Rice.-The Tom Yum Prawns. (★★★★☆)
With prawns on the top layer, fries on the bottom layer and tom yum soup base.
-The Gong Bao Chicken. (★★★★★) MY PERSONAL FAVE!
With 4x4 cm size chicken breast cubes, capsicums and gong bao chicken soup base.(★★★★☆) CREATIVITY FULL MARKS.
-The Fish or Prawn paste, which I still don't know which it is.
Delicately packed in a small bag with a hole at the front.
To be squeeze into the Gong bao chicken soup and eat like maybe... fish paste noodles? Squeezing in process~The boiling fish paste noodles.As seen, the restaurant name is Chicken Hot Pot.
So all the food are served in mini hotpots! Super cute and convenient!
Also, the restaurant caters to those personal mini hot pot. (Portion quite big.) The drinks in jug.

Overall, I will certainly patronize this outlet again as I'm truly impressed with the service, food, atmosphere and price!
From topping up soups, refilling drinks for us automatically and most importantly, I don't get smelly and oily after eating the hotpots!
Hahahaha, I think best part is still the price. $69.80 (Round up $70) for the whole family to a restaurant is truly reasonably priced and pocket friendly for most families.

Bak Kut Teh for Supper! Smile Dec 23, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bak Kut Teh

Today I'm going to recommend to you this famous Bak Kut Teh at Balestier!
TADA! It's the Founder Bak Kut Teh aka 發起人肉骨茶!!

 
So, went for some last minute Christmas shopping, and late night shopping for daily necessities at Mustafa.
After a long day of weekend shopping, we just hope for a bowl of sizzling hot soup, so we were cracking our heads where to head for supper!

On the way, we passed by this Founder Bak Kut Teh shop, which really attracted me on the first sight. What's special is that, their whole shop wallpaper is full of photos! Photos with famous celebrities all over the world! (Yes, I mean the four walls. ) shocked

Okay, so here comes the food!
Bak Kut Teh Ribs.

Available in big and small.
Salted Vegetables

And the salted vegetables!
$3.

______________________________

The food is sincerely nice, not absolutely fabulous, but still worth 4/5 thumbs up!
The first two bowl of soups served were warm, not sizzling hot, which is not what I expected as Bak Kut Teh should be served hot instead of warm.
However, the third bowl of Bak Kut Teh which we ended up ordering again, is sizzling hot and was more up to what I expected at first.

But overall, the heat has not affected much of it's taste.
Furthermore, the you tiao is the best part!
Imagine that crispy you tiao, being throughly soaked inside the bak kut teh, and the soup just burst in your mouth. SHIOK!

The braised pork trotters were not really their signature dishes, so it's actually tasting quite normal.
It's like you can go outside and get similar tasting braised sauce.

For the salted vegetables, it's actually quite up to my liking. Not too sweet, not too salty. Just the right portion, the right taste, the right munchy-ness.

Overall, we got three bowls of bak kut teh, one bowl of mixed pork intestines, one bowl of braised pork trotters, one plate of salted vegetables & drinks at total $48 (inclusive of GST, no service charge).

Personally I find the price reasonably priced for the yummy food, so TRY IT! tongue
It's located at 347 Balestier Road, #01-347.
Confirm no regrets! lol

So, that's all for today! GOOD NIGHT Open ricers! KAN FAI LO! bowl
