At 88 years old and going even stronger!

 
Egg tarts going at $1.40 a piece. This was really not what I had remembered from my childhood days.

I ate this when it was still 90 cents a pop and what I remembered was that this was the shortcrust buttery tart pastry I didn't exactly fancy on the egg tart. But today, it tasted different. It was a cross between a shortcrust and a puff pastry.

im not sure what made the difference but it might have been the moulding into the diamond shaped tart base.

we were there long enough to take the rest of the tray and wait for the next fresh batch.

The ones on the tray were not very palatable. and to be honest, i was a little uninspired.

But come this one. the one pictured, piping hot and causing quite the heat on my hands, but it was delectable this time.

A bite on the side for some crust and filling then slowly sipping on the sweetened egg fillings before devouring the crusts.

this was really a nightmare since i felt like i could possible down another and another.

Teatime treats Smile Oct 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

Coming at an offpeak timing was very good news because of their special menu. And this time round, it was mini ishiyaki dons. I chose the mini ishiyaki kurobuta don. which has tofu, sliced black pork, mushrooms and sukiyaki sauce in a hotpot. smile

 
You might want to put in their red pepper powder for an additional spice kick. smile

This comes with a starter chawanmushi and a green tea. all for just $5.

 
And of course i love my pumpkin croquette too much to skip it.

first time at coffee beanstro OK Oct 28, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Café

this was my first foray into beanstro. the tealight cups on all the tables were a pretty sight. and although cosy, it got a lil chilly.

the service was alright. the people at the counter were more fun than the waitstaff walking around.

 
a chicago cheesecake with the addtional chocolate drizzles and a quarter of a sour strawberry saw a sizeable price increase to $8 from the usual $6.50 that I was used to paying at the regular coffee bean cafes.

the ultimate ice blended with java chip was a lot more diluted here today, even with the addition of whipped cream.

unless it's another attempt to try the food, i don't think i'll be back here soon.

truffled. Smile Oct 28, 2013

i randomly walked into palio because I had a while to spare before picking up some people from Hotel Michael.

after i was given the menu,

this arrived.

 
and boy was it bad news.

because this lightly toasted bread was so good!

crisp on the outside and soft on the insides.

with the olive oil tomato dip. it was finger licking good!

and what's better for bread than a soup dip?

 
i made an order for a mushroom soup. earthy and topped with all that generous truffle shavings.

i was delightfully drinking it till the last drop!

so much for a light bite.

alaskan king crab :) Smile Oct 28, 2013   (Related Review)

Their premium sets here are all so mouthwateringly delicious.

it didn't take me long to decide on this set though.

 
look at the colors!

the marinated seaweed and radish were a good start to the meal.

then those thick cuts of sashimi. the salmon was thick and succulent.

and of course, I left the rest to the last.

moving on to the baked cheese scallops, the cheese sauce was so good that I used the last of it to put onto my alaskan crab. smile

but then i decided that it tasted even better with the tempura sauce. YUM!

the meat although fried, was crispy on the outside and still tender and juicy within. of course, i loved that i didn't have to fight with tooth and nail to get to the meat. it was already thoughtfully peeled halfway. and the remaining part had a soft shell exterior that was easily cracked to reveal the meat within.

a very good dinner indeed. smile
