Awful seafood risotto Cry Jul 27, 2012

Cedele is nice and quiet, because it's situated at the convention centre, away from the hustle of the main shopping area of Raffles City.

I had the Red Seafood Risotto ($16.90) with seared white fish, prawns and mussels in tomato basil arborio rice. This was terrible, which was surprising, because it was the first time I've ever had a bad meal in Cedele. The seafood was stale, rubbery and/or fishy, very off-putting both in smell and taste. The fish fillet was choc-full of bones, I was spitting out bones with whatever little bite I bit off the fillet. The only edible thing on the dish was probably the rice. Should have stuck to their signature sandwiches instead.

Way overrated Cry Jul 11, 2012

Categories : Japanese | Bars/Lounges

We had high expectations for dinner, having had a very good meal at Z'en, their sister restaurant. We should have tampered our expectations way low, as there were more misses than hits.

We had:

1) Tsukune ($9) - skewers of grilled chicken meatball with egg yolk. Some kind of herb or raw celery was added, which threw the taste of the meatball off

2) Enoki Bacon ($7) skewers of grilled enoki mushrooms wrapped with bacon - nice but really quite idiot-proof. A very simple dish of the winning combination of delicate golden mushrooms and fatty salty decadent bacon.

3) Shitake Nikuzume ($7.50) one of the few nice dishes, skewers of grilled shitake mushroom with minced chicken, fat juicy mushrooms stuffed with freshly ground chicken, seasoned with a quick brush of teriyaki sauce

4) Yose Tofu ($9.80) handmade silky sweet tofu served with soy sauce - I thought the tofu could have been softer and silker, this had a very thick semi-hard texture that I didn't like

5) Soft Shell Crab Temaki ($6) - fairly alright but ordinary. We didn't take to the mayonnaise in the handroll. Even with the 50% discount on the handroll, this was still really pricey and not worth the discounted $3 pricetag

6) Yaki Udon ($11) stir fried noodles with pork and vegetable was waaaay too sweet. I expected a savoury dish, but this turned out ridiculously sweet

Gawdawful mushroom soup Cry Jul 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Middle Eastern/Mediterranean | Restaurant

See the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com/2011/01/gulf-beach-lebanese-restaurant-cafe.html

The air-conditioning was obviously wonky that night, and even though the staff put out a couple of fans in the indoors dining area, it was barely cooler than sitting outdoors in the very humid and warm night.

We had:

1) Farrouj Mechwi ($15) is a boneless chicken thigh patty marinated with a medley Lebanese spices, garlic and lemon juice, char-grilled. This wasn't half bad, it was aromatic and exotic,while tender and juicy, even if a frozen piece of meat was used and it wasn't very impressive at all

2) Mushroom soup - free but it was a monstrosity of a soup, terribly watery and weak, starched up by plain cornflour.This is one instance I thought it was better for a restaurant not to have served a free dish

Not good or authentic Cry Jul 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | BBQ

See the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com/2011/01/crystal-jade-ginseng-chicken-and-bbq.html

The overall verdict is that the Korean cuisine here is not great, and too pricey for the lack in quality and authenticity. Also, I found the floor a little slippery, probably due to the poor ventilation and misty droplets of oil from the Korean bbq. They really need to wipe the grease off the floor. We walked out of the small restaurant smelling of bulgogi and oil.

We had:

1) Assorted Rice in Stone Cattle with Beef ($18), or Bibimbap, a classic Korean staple, not great. It was lacking in the clean fresh crunch usually found in the dish

2) Spicy Crab Soup ($20) - too saturated and overpoweringly sweet. The scent and flavour of the flower crab was overwhelmingly pungent

For the full review with photos, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com/2010/12/crossroads-cafe-marriot-hotel.html

Crossroads Cafe is really a run-of-the-mill buffet restaurant, with little hits and many misses. The desserts generally fared better than the mains and starters. Of the mains, I only liked the baked potatoes and Western roasts at the carving station. The only starter I liked was the parma ham. Stay away from the seafood on ice and Cantonese roasts.
