Ginseng for the soul Smile Sep 29, 2013   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese Soup | Steamboat/Hot Pot

This was ginseng chicken soup for the soul. I came here drenched on a rainy afternoon with my dad looking for some soup to warm ourselves...
and I guess it didn't take long for us to decide on this.

 
for $25 we got ourselves a bubbling pot of goodness.

there was a lot of chicken in this. But i guess that would be just about right for the price.

it came with wolfberries and red dates and it didn't have a strong taste of ginseng. just a hint of it.

we also grabbed a plate of mee sua and some mushrooms and beancurd sheets to boil in the soup.

feel free to ask for soup refills.

where is this place? Smile Sep 29, 2013

If you've found your way to jalan leban, then jalan kuras is just the road to the left along the stretch that houses awfully chocolate.

then look for the sign that says Ming Choon Pau Dian and that's basically where you'd find the bread table.

blink and you'll miss it.

 
i went at night and found myself being asked if i'd like to have some 'zhu chao' mandarin for stir fry. So by night, the shop converts to stir-fried dishes.

What a brilliant use of space.

 
So these sour dough breads were recommended. But I was here solely for the baguette.
Which we managed the nab the LAST one. smile

At $2.90, this was not cheap.

 
but let's see if this was any good?
Ripping it apart, it was all nice and meaty. Densely packed and what about the bite?
You've gotta gnash it apart. That took some jaw action.
Toasted? It was crisp and tasted much better that way, with butter and some homemade kaya.

Mmm heaven.

Worth the $2.90? Sure. But I won't be fighting for it.

I'll be back to try those tantalizing sticky buns or cinnamon walnut breads soon!

I needed some cheese. I'd think of nydc and their baked rice but it's been such a long time I've had any. What else could have some cheese?

And this was just the place to look for some.

This was their spicy meat lovers.

 
10-inch pizza for $20. And it was just OVERLOADED with cheese.

Seriously.

Spicy chorizo, salami, chilli, tomato paste and mozzarella cheese.

it was a blanket of cheese I kid you not.

And you'd literally be stuffed with cheese if you murdered the entire pizza on your own.

Which I almost did and hereby testifying the actuality of the statement.

I loved it though. the spiciness of the chorizo and chilli broke the monotony of salty mozza toppings. the crust was like biscuit on the ends and chewy in the middle.

yum. smile

Satisfying monstrous appetites  Smile Sep 29, 2013

Categories : Japanese

First time here since the change from Gorilla Go! Go! curry and i'm surprised to see that the menu has expanded to include so many new items.

 
I had the seafood monster curry ($24) with cheese and boy was it massive. a happy assortment of seafood items including prawns, scallops and a generous piece of dory. I had a level 5 spicy curry and to be honest, it wasn't all that spicy although it is said to be made from sambal.

The fruit curry was sourish sweet and coupled with some heat, this was some addictive gravy! I wish they had more of the pickles and salad though. it would really help to cleanse the oiliness away from all the fried items.

everyone talks about their cold poached chocolate.

sure i've poached eggs before and for chocolate?

call me swaku if you'd like but I didn't actually understood what it meant.

still, I was game to try. It comes with a dollop of liquer cream- Brandy, Baileys, Pear, Malt Whiskey and Butterscotch
what's your choice?

 
I settled with Baileys and I loved it!

actually more the cream than the chocolate. Well, they were both perfect together. Mmmm.

 
And a hot butterscotch caramel please.
This was... in a word... SWEET.
more than a sugar rush, this was a sugar concussion.

I kid you not.

This probably goes with their Hei chocolate.
And NO other sweet treat. You've been warned.
I had to down cups of water as I went through this addictively sweet drink.
