One of my fave bak kut teh places Smile Mar 15, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bak Kut Teh

Pictures are @ http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/06/ng-ah-sio-bak-kut-teh-chui-hui-lim-club.html

Unlike many other bak kut teh eateries, this Ng Ah Sio stands out in that it offers a bunch of local classics like mee siam, chicken rice, laksa, and breakfast staples of kaya toasts and soft-boiled eggs amongst their repertoire.
We love:
1) Signature Spare Ribs Soup ($9.80): Fantastic - the broth was as peppery as it was rich in depth of flavour. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and fresh - no "porky smell" here!
2) Braised Duck ($14 for 1/4): sparkling fresh, tender and swimming in the most heavenly braising sauce.
3) Blanched Lettuce ($5):simple but excellent, this was drenched in a sesame oil-soy emulsion, and brightened by copious lashings of fried garlic bits
4) Mee Rebus ($7.80): must-try...the gravy was thick and robust, and the frills were done well too; the hard boiled egg wasn't overcooked like many other mee rebus renditions, the prawns succulent, and fried baby shrimp delightfully crunchy

Absolutely sublime Smile Mar 15, 2016

Distinguished as the finest Japanese restaurant in all of Singapore (it is the highest ranked on just about every dining list there is), Shinji is one of those places that is reserved for special occasions, the food here being absolutely sublime, and the bill costing a pretty penny.
At $300 a pop for the cheapest omakase dinner option, Shinji is also renown to be the most expensive Japanese restaurant in Singapore. The multi-course meal is well worth it though, sparkling fresh, immaculately finessed and exquisitely plated.
The restaurant, a pinewood-ed space of tranquility, is split up into several dining rooms, each one kept small so a single chef can helm it, and each room it can be switched up into a private space.
Service was intuitive, attentive, and unobtrusive. The waitresses were stealthy like ninjas, I never really saw them around, but my teacup was always filled to the brim, and barely a second after we whipped out our credit card, they appeared with the bill! We actually looked up to see if there were cameras in the room watching our every move.
Best save this for a special occasion.

Worthwhile Msian Fare OK Mar 14, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian | Halal | Noodles

See pictures at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/06/papparich-plaza-singapura.html

Serving greasy Malaysian street food at hearty portions and reasonable prices, it's little wonder the chain restaurant is frequently packed.
Unsurprisingly, service was awful; we never got served any water, getting a server's attention was an impossible task, and just about every wait staff sported a glum grimace. I'd asked to hold off the parsley/spring onions/coriander, and they took off ALL of the vegetables...my noodles missed their beansprouts and kangkong.
Notwithstanding the woefully lackadaisical service, the Malaysian fare at PappaRich was pretty commendable. We'd been craving the Hokkien mee back in Penang, and PappaRich's rendition did well in scratching that itch.
We had:
1) Chicken Satay (8.90 for 6): so succulent and flavourful, it rendered the accompanying peanut sauce redundant.
2) Pappa Prawn Mee ($9.90): a lovely blend of rich shrimp stock and chilli spice, generously studded with fresh prawns and poached chicken slices. The robust broth was wonderfully comforting on a cool rainy night.
3) Pappa Fried Mee ($8.90): imbued with the smoky accent of the wok, was equal parts sweet and spicy and savoury. It wasn't the most outstanding, but it passed muster.
4) Pappa Chicken Chop with Curry Sauce ($12.90): beautifully crisp skin. I liked the creamy curry gravy, but thought the fried rice rather pedestrian and fried egg slightly overcooked

See pictures at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/07/outback-steakhouse-orchard-gateway.html

We'd initially thought of Outback as an Aussie barbie version of Pasta Mania, so it was quite a big surprise that the food here was decent, almost commendable. This isn't Wooloomooloo, but at these price points, it'sthe cheaper, better Morganfield's.
We had:
1) Baby Back Ribs & Alice Springs Chicken Combo ($34.90): half a rack of juicy, fork-tender ribs burnished with a tangy bbq sauce that was finger-licking good, and petite chicken breast layered with sauteed mushrooms, crisped bacon and smothered in melted monterey jack and cheddar was flame-grilled to a moist perfection. This was sided by hearty handmashed potatoes, skins and all.
2) Seafood Mix Grill ($29.90): a massive platter of smoky grilled mahi fillet (watch out for bones), seared shrimp and scallops, set atop a piquant mango salsa, and paired with buttered steamed vegetables, and a somewhat middling corn on the cob. Of note was the fat succulent scallops, which were done perfectly

See pictures at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/07/la-taperia.html

The atmosphere at La Taperia is lively and convivial; fantastic for winding down after a long week at work. The menu is conservatively traditional, but extensive in variety, and absolutely scrumptious. Be sure to make reservations though, the restaurant is always a buzzy full-house whenever I pop by for dinner.
We had:
1) Champinones con Jamon al Ajillo ($16): white button mushrooms sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with garlic slivers, speckled with jamon serrano, was topped off by an organic egg confit. Absolutely must-try.
2) Huevos Estrellados con Patatas Paja, Chorizo, Pimiento del Piquillo y Champinones ($18): a hodgepodge of eggs fried with iberico chorizo, piquillo red pepper, mushrooms, and straw potatoes - sublime.
3) Salteado di Champinones ($8): mushrooms sauteed with extra virgin olive oil - earthy wholesome goodness.
4) Gambas al Ajillo ($18): fat juicy prawns swimming in olive oil, crispy garlic and chilli flakes. Simplicity at its finest. Get bread to mop up the awesome olive oil.
5) Pulpo a la Gallega ($22): excellent Galician-style octopus, and cooked to perfection, soft with a hint of bite.
6) Croquetas de Jamon ($15): potato cutlets stuffed with suckling pig, bechamel and jamon iberico - creamy and balanced.
7) Presa Iberica a la Parrilla ($24): charcoal-grilled iberian pork marinated in paprika and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil - luscious and meltingly tender, a must-try as well
8) Chistorrado de Pollo Paella ($30): a sizzling griddle of rice dotted with sauteed chicken breast chunks, chistorra sausage, piquillo pepper and melty cheese - flavoursome and torched with just the perfect amount of smoky char
