Fu Jian Mian Smile Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean | Chinese | Food Court | Seafood | Zi Char

 
This plate of Fu Jian Mian is not your typical white fried hokkien mee. This Fu Jian Mian at $4, is stirred fried yellow noodles (flat kind) with dark sauce, pork slices, vegetable, fish cake and prawns. Since I was craving for prawns, I specially ordered one with only vegetables and prawns. The dark sauce was slightly salty, but that’s usually the case when it comes to the gravy for noodles. Prawns were not overcooked and it has already been peeled for you.

Nice and bitter chocolate tart Smile Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : French | Bakery | Café | Desserts and Cakes

I had wanted to visit Paul during one of the lunch hours but after looking at the menu, my friends decided that it was too expensive to dine there during meal times so we said to head back for desserts instead! We went after our movie and it was quite late already, around 9plus. However there were still some people queuing, but I saw that there were quite a lot of empty seats outside. So we took the seats outside. Because we came rather late, most of the signature cakes and pastries were sold out. We asked for some recommendations and we got Pomme-Cassis ($8.50) and a chocolate tart (Tartelette chocolat, $6.50). GST and service charge prevails but plain water is complimentary.

The first bite down on Pomme-Cassis was just sour. It has caramelised apple slices in between the two layer of sponge cakes. I wasn't very impressed by it due to the first bite. Cakes are supposed to be sweet! Maybe this dessert requires more than just one bite to fully appreciate the taste. I wonder why it was recommended though.

 
The chocolate tart was great! I enjoy my chocolate to be slightly more bitter and thus this suits my taste. Not recommended for people who dislike bitter chocolate though. The crust of this tart was awesome! I don't think it was baked hours prior to us eating it but the crustiness of the crust was maintained quite well.

Smoked duck pasta Smile Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fusion | Pasta

I walked past there at around 6pm and surprisingly there was no one at all. So my friend and I were the first customers. I didn't like it that the lights were so dimly lit (around that time) and it sort of affected my mood for dinner already.

I shared the mushroom soup with my friend and it tasted not too bad! I love the garlic bread though, it's nicely toasted smile I ordered the creamy smoked duck spaghetti ($10.50) and as a person who does not like/eat creamy based pasta frequently, I must say this one at 49 seats is really not bad. I didn't feel sick of it after a few mouthfuls, which is a good sign that this is a good cream-based pasta. The only grip I had about this dish was that the amount of duck meat was too little and my pasta was too much.

 

 
The interior of the café wasn't too bad, but as I mentioned earlier, there wasn't much lighting when I was there and I didn't like the metal chairs also. But we had friendly service from the staff!

Grilled dory OK Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Singaporean Chinese | Singaporean Western | Kids-Friendly

I ordered the Grilled Fish Dory set at S$9.80 it comes along with 1 soup of the day and 1 drink and also Aglio Olio with Bacon at S$11.80.

For the grilled fish, the fries was crispy and nice, but the coleslaw was pretty average. The dory fish wasn't too bad but a little too dry, probably grilled for too long. If you're cream-based soup lover, you will love this mushroom soup! It also comes with garlic bread. The ice lemon tea was refreshing and nice.

The Aglio Olio was too oily, the olive oil taste was overwhelming and was a little too spicy. Definitely not worth the second try. However bacon was not too bad as it’s slightly crispy.

Waiting time and seats: I went at about 12.30pm on a weekday, the working crowd that filled up the restaurant, finding tables for small groups(2-3people) isn’t an issue, but for larger group (4 and above) you might want to consider arriving earlier. Waiting time for order to be taken was quite fast (about 5mins) despite having queue with estimated 10 people in front. Waiting time for main course to be ready takes about 10mins.

Nice biscuit OK Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Fast Food | Halal

 
I ordered a Sunday’s deal, 3 piece tender chickens and biscuit with additional add-on of coke and Cajun Fries. Personally I didn’t like the chicken as it was rather bland, the crust wasn’t crunchy enough and was rather dry. The Cajun fries was normal but not comparable to McDonalds/A&W curly fries or long john silver fries. I think the only thing that was special and nicer was the biscuit, however I feel that the biscuit could have been better with fillings (e.g. strawberry, chocolate) in it as it was rather hard to eat the biscuit with the jam given. There's also daily deals at $3.90 with add-ons at $1.50, up to a maximum of 3.
