he first thought that came into my mind when the Chendol was served was 'so big serving, am I able to finish it?' I actually had Chendol less than 5 times in my life as I would normally order an ice kachang or other desserts in food centres. I don't remember seeing such large serving size of Chendol in food centres though. The first thing that caught my attention was the gula melaka. I stared at it in horror at the gooey pile resting comfortably, taking its desired shape across the ice. No way I wanted so much sugar intake that day! Besides that, the sight of those beans disgusted me as I am not really a fan of them. Worse still, now that they had got bigger. After mixing all up, as expected it was too sweet. I could not stand the sweetness and requested for more ice. With the extra shaved ice, the taste was just awesome. Fragrant from the gula melaka and coconut milk, chunky from the grass jelly and the green worm-like jelly made from rice flour. Not that I am fussy, but having too much jelly really irritated me as the drink should be the priority.

Coca Steamboat Buffet Smile Aug 12, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Chinese Steamboat/Hot Pot | Buffet | Kids-Friendly

Of course the first thing I took picture of was the sauce! It was set nicely on the table for each of us in the private room.
Lucky we had the private room as it was more comfortable and we had more privacy. If your common sense seems to lag,
you will know that we can be very noisy and vulgar (army style). Anyway, back to the sauce, typical Thai style, mild
spiciness with plenty of chopped parsley. I dipped everything into it before eating as it just tasted so good! Worked
especially well as gravy over the noodles too.
Our steamboat pots were arranged in the form of a Bermuda Triangle. (2 chicken stock and 1 Tom Yam) Like the actual
Bermuda Triangle, almost everything that went into those pots to cook, would disappear into our stomach. Sadly except
for those meatballs (shrimp, beef or chicken), they had magnetic field problems which our stomachs repelled. (Explanation later!) We ordered a few rounds of ingredient to add into our 'Bermuda Triangle'. Although the variety was not a lot, it was counter-balanced by the freshness of the ingredients. Time for the meatballs part. Seeing this picture was enough to make me wanting to puke. Not sure why but these meatballs left the most memorable impression for us. We ordered too many of them and ended up for the last half an hour, we had plenty of meatballs in the pots. I myself ate more than 10 of them and totally did not want any more to appear in front of my eyes.

Ice Cream Art Buffet OK Aug 12, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Ice Cream and Gelato

Having bought 2 groupon vouchers for $9 each, which entitled Nyx and I to have an ice cream buffet for an hour at Ice Cream Art. The location was bad as it required me to travel all the way from my home (Ang Mo Kio) to Tiong Bahru MRT station, and then a bus to Sports Lifestyle Centre. When we entered, we were stunned as we did not expect such a small outlet. We started our 1h buffet spree and the lady boss (I supposed) was really friendly. I also requested the scopes of ice cream given to be slightly smaller than normal as we both wanted to try all the flavours. The flavours available that day were green tea, oreo cheese cake, horlick malt, dark chocolate, raspberry swirl, cookies and cream, raspberry cheese cake, mango, lychee, soursoap, green apple yogurt, strawberry yogurt, kiwi and durian! (Only last part than noticed the existence of durian ice cream.)

Antoinette Smile Aug 12, 2012

Finally I had the chance to try out Antoinette's Antoinette (the cake which I ordered). Luckily for me, that day was not crowded as compared to weekends. I got a cosy seat by the corner, right under the light so that my pictures were
clear (so fortunate as the whole place was a little dim for clear shots). Right after being seated comfortably, I ordered straight away and waited super impatiently for my cake to arrive.
The cosy interior of Antoinette really suited me! Classy, cosy, sensual. A perfect place for small group gathering (provided the group do not make too much noise to spoil the ambiance). More perfect for a date with your lover as well as with family members. My cake finally arrived in front of me! I suspected that I may have a strange fetish for smooth and glossy looking cakes as I could not help admiring its surface. The booklet behind was actually the menu which I did not even flipped once as I was aiming the cake from the display counter the moment I stepped in. Instead of digging into Antoinette, my first reaction was to poke the red bubble resting on top of it. It was firm but clearly contained something within. I made a cut across the bubble, causing a small flow of jam t

 
o leak down slowly. I have no intention to spoil your appetite but it really reminded me of a female having her period! (No offence) Alright, enough of playing around and let my mouth do the job. I actually spread the sourish raspberry jam over the cake, hoping that it was the right way. The bubble was like jelly and I ate it appreciatively. Before I knew it, I have already eaten half the cake! (You must be dying to know how was it?) One word, heavenly! The first wave of taste that hit me unaware and flooded my mouth was the earl gray. After a few mouths, the taste of earl grey no longer lingered, but was overtaken by the more intense second wave of the chocolate (mousse/chocolate/crunch/sponge)! It was really an exclusive treat that inspired me with awe.

Fancy Delight ($1) Smile Aug 12, 2012   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Desserts and Cakes

Not quite sure what time the discount actually starts but the egg tarts were going off for $1 each. They were going off fast!
I managed to buy the last piece of kaya and the apple cinnamon egg tarts. The other 2 were original and which people
were less interested in. (The flavours really enhanced the taste!) The kaya was rather strong and fragrant that it
overwhelmed the taste of the egg. As for the apple cinnamon, it was rather subtle, more soothing to my taste buds,
especially when it was consumed right after it was taken out of the refrigerator. Mentioning about being chilled, these
egg tarts had a cheesy texture and mouth-feel that in confusion, for a moment, I thought that I was eating cheese!
