What better for supper than some smooth and silky beancurd?
Maybe a cup of cold soybean milk? Or perhaps some fried doughsticks?

Well, make that all of the above.
The soya beancurd we ordered was with soymilk.
Most days I'd rather have it just with sugar syrup but my girlfriend wanted soymilk.
It was a little of an overkill seeing as how we also had a cup of cold soybean milk.

The doughsticks weren't served hot. I was terribly disappointed. sad Just as well, it helped me skip the oily mess.

Otherwise though, loved my beancurd and soymilk.

Whatever raw. Smile Sep 23, 2013

The same guys behind Standing Sushi Bar. It was a mad rave about their dollar oyster promotions. The promotion is no longer on. But they are still on offer at $2 a pop.

 
A dozen? Of course and why not?
Served on a bed of ice in a pretty metal platter, the oysters vary in size and come with salted water in their shells. So please, pour away the extra water before you eat it or you'd be unpleasantly surprised like me. A generous squeeze of lemon topped with a dash or two of tabasco. Then slurp everything down. Mmm. Feels like a tiny part of the sea exploded in my belly.

 
And of course, how could i resist?
Sashimi slices going for a dollar a slice. Each portion goes for 5 dollars for 5 slices.
Make that a double. smile

Now that's what I call dinner.

Without a say Cry Sep 23, 2013

So here i find myself with a majority vote for a ramen dinner.

Makes it simple though: definitely no egg fried rice for me.

 
might as well try the recommended special. Arashi Genkotsu Ramen.

 
while waiting, i fiddled with the condiments.
and found myself impressed with fauchon black pepper powder.
maybe that's why the costs are slightly higher here.
honestly though, who puts pepper into anything here?
and what about the black pot?
pickled spring onions.
tasting like kimchi but with a pungent and slightly bitter aftertaste.
it definitely opened my appetite though. smile

 
so there! $12.90 for a bowl of ramen. The seaweed was placed right on top and was already a soggy mess by the time it arrived. The chashu was so thin it was completely submerged. I'd rather not have the half hardboiled egg and have a thicker piece of chashu like in other ramen restaurants. Be warned that the soup is very very salty. And as promised, high on fat and collagen for a very thick soup. And the noodles? Like overcooked korean noodles.

If it's any consolation, I still finished my bowl of ramen but... I really won't be giving this a third try.

The store display of shoyu butter rice was a generous display of rice covered in a luscious golden yellow egg mix. that's exactly what I wanted. smile

But I hesitated when I saw the menu. It was an already mixed hot plate of cha han. That's not what I wanted. Hmm. Still, making decisions was too much work. So I stuck with it. And this was what arrived.

 
$12.90 Itameshi shoyu

With a small ramekin of shoyu which the waiter happily dumped in the entire contents of. The sizzling sound was comforting but i'm not sure I wanted that much salt.

And a side of cold soup. It was horrible trying to stomach a cold bowl of soup. Not room temperature. It was air conditioned cold temperatures.

And no I did not bother getting my soup changed.

The rice was nicely burnt on some parts giving that charred taste i love. The butter fragrance was strong and inviting. But it was generally too salty. Perhaps that's why they leave a jug of water on every table for self service. I wished there was more meat though. I found myself with too many mouthfuls of salty egg rice.

It'll be awhile before I'm back.

Finally. :) OK Sep 22, 2013

Finally we made it here. After two attempts of getting sidetracked and going there on their off day, this is us. At Stranger's. smile

 
Now this I've heard about. Magic. A 2:1 ratio of ristretto to milk. I could probably get this done with my nespresso but there was just a je ne sais quoi about this cuppa. Perhaps the milk. What couldn't be recreated at home can be bought for $5.50 a cup here.

 
And a snack to go along of course.
Like perhaps... truffle fries? At $12.90 this wasn't cheap. And sadly? Not truffled enough. It wasn't a thorough toss in the oil or perhaps not enough was used. The sides of the bowl had evidence of truffle oil though. We picked it up for a photo and had to get our hands washed. The garlic aioli was good but too watery. too many drips on clothes and arms. Case in point. I eventually asked for mayo before I became a garlic mess.
