Looking for something to snack on? Feeling hot and sweaty but you don't want to add calories to your current diet?

Brownice is the place to go for your cravings. Low in fat, low in sugar, very little calories, no milk, no eggs and more importantly vegetarian friendly.

There are a wide variety of flavours from your normal vanilla to interesting flavours such as banana oats and hazelnut coffee. A single scoop costs $3.80 which is something that i would normally purchase.

As you enter the store, the friendly staff are there to serve you with their great sense of customer satisfaction. THe interior decoration is as if you have entered heaven. White tables and chairs, nice level of music playing int he background to make the customers feel happy and whats best is that it is near my place!

I was recommended banana oat ice cream by my friend since i love the combination of both ingredients complimenting each other. It was slightly sweet but it had a strong essence of banana flavoured goodness in it. Truly amazing and absolutely delightful. The taste of the oats are very mild but it surely is an amazing complimentary ingredient.

Brownice also has other items to go with your ice cream such as waffles, brownies and a waffle flavoured cone to go along with your ice cream.

With every ice-cream store comes a water dispensing machine for consumers. Another selling point in this store is the refreshing goodness of "Kangen" water. This water is a type of mineral flavoured water and if i am not wrong, you can actually place an order for the machines. The taste of this water is truly distinct in such a way that you can actually taste the difference between the normal water this flavoured water.

Zhongshan Park Mall is located at Balestier Road and here are some instructions as to how to get there.

If you are coming by car, you can take
i) PIE and exit by Thomson Road and enter into Balestier Road.
ii) CTE and exit Moulmein Road and turn into Balestier Road.
Car parking is available at the Hotel or at the shopping centre itself

If you are taking the MRT, you can alight at Toa Payoh MRT and take Service Number SBS 139 or SBS 145

If you are taking the bus, you can take 21,130, 131, 139, 145 or 186

Fish and Chips at Nasrin Smile Jun 07, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Middle Eastern/Mediterranean

When you have nothing to do and when you want to head on down to have a good chill with your good friends, this is exactly what you can do or rather choose to do for a good week night chill or a a good week end chill...

One of my childhood friends came down from the US and so we decided to go to have some food and smoke some Turkish pipe... We headed over to Nasrin to do both at the same time. This place is so big such that it has 2 separate locations within the vicinity. I could not help it but all i can say is that this place has a lot of pretty girls as well on a Saturday night of different races.

The staff at this place was allocated a section to take care of all the customers and see to their needs. However at times it can be annoying because they tend to forget your orders but so far i have no complains because i do understand how it works in a F&B establishment.

So having a night of fun, my friends and i settled down for an alfresco area at Nasrin with good sights and sounds of the Arab Street. A night of good laughs will not come without good food..

What we proceeded to do next was to actually order some food. This place for starters, do not serve alcohol so for those who want alcohol, another place will do good for your alcoholic fix. I ordered the fish and chips priced at 14.90, it is served with a mixed side salad, 3 pieces of juicy thin breadcrumb coated fish and a serving of french fries. Without a shadow of a doubt, this is one of the better fish and chips i have tasted. Its either a hit or miss for some fish and chips as some of them serve it frozen but without a doubt this is served fresh, the salad was a bit disappointing because it did not have enough of variety. I am not so particular about the sauce because i chose a vinaigrette to accompany my salad. The fries were simple non salted and non crinkle cut. A simple dish for about $14.90.

They also have other items on the menu that provide a more middle eastern to a Turkish feel. Truly a palate that has to be tested with because of all their spices that are present in the dishes particularly in the Persian dishes...

Come here to try the dishes if you want an out of ordinary cuisine and dare to be different.

Dining at Carls Junior Smile Jun 07, 2013

Categories : American | Fast Food | Burgers and Sandwiches

VivoCity is one of the larger shopping malls in Singapore comprising of a vast array of food and beverage dining options to a selection of small stop F&B bites such as the Don Bakery and many small stop kiosks for patrons to "eat as they go".

The second level of VivoCity is wonderfully designed with a Kids play area followed by a alfresco dining area for patrons to watch over their kids while eating. A very ideal place for families to bring their children on a weekend or the school holidays. The play area being free of charge will cater to all families who are on a budget but still want to have a good time.

There was one night that i was tempted by Carl's Junior as we were about to have a long night ahead of us. Upon arrival, we knew that being a Saturday night it would be very busy so we decided to sit at the alfresco area for dinner. We ordered our meals and had it delivered to us because of the concept of ordering in Carl's Junior.

Being totally famished, i ordered the Turkey Bacon Angus Thick Burger. Well what can i say about this burger? This burger is absolutely sinful and one of the most unhealthiest burgers available on the menu. It is truly a big burger because the size of the burger is really huge and as i mentioned before that if a burger is bigger than my hand, i will be solely impressed and true enough i truly was. The burger had the following items a thick Angus beef patty, 2 slices of cheddar cheese, 2 pieces of streaky bacon 2 crispy onion rings, tomato ketchup sandwiched into 2 perfect buns... The combination of all the patties being put together makes it ultimately amazing. The different flavors in your mouth makes the tastes of the burger absolutely fantastic. However, it must be noted that it is a great way to blow your diet. The calories in this range from 780 calories to 1045 calories.

The complementary order to fries would be the chili cheese fries apart from the other types of fries being served. The chili cheese fries is served with melted cheese and a layer of chili con carne. The taste just explodes in your mouth with a decent amount of complex carbohydrates, this dish also puts you in for the kill with the great taste in your mouth. All this is served with a large beverage in which you will be able to choose from Soft drinks or Home-made iced lemon tea.

Just a small insight on the Carl's Junior, it is actually an American cuisine where the main headquarters is in Anaheim, California USA. A small hot dog push cart business to a Multi-million dollar organization. If you ever do travel up to USA, do not forget to try out their $6 Burger.

It is good to indulge yourself sometimes but not all the time. The tastes of Carl's Junior is fantastic and what to accompany a good meal with great service. The staff were extremely jovial adding to the Saturday mood and provided insights of different burgers. Their product knowledge was extremely good for a customer who did not know what to order.

Childhood revisited Smile Jun 06, 2013

Categories : American

Hershey's Store is a retail store at Resort World Sentosa (RWS). It is located at the Forum section at RWS. It is quite easy to spot once you are in that area. There are 2 ways of getting without the usage of the car, bus or taxi... You can take the Sentosa express from level 3 at Vivocity and you would have to exit at the first stop waterfront station headed towards the universal studios and you will be able to see the store. a fee of $3 will be deducted from your EZ link card but you will take roughly around 5 minutes to get to your location. A second way will be to get there by foot on the Sentosa Boardwalk. It will take around 10 to 15 minutes to get there but you would only have to pay $1 for entering the Island.

Inside this store, there is a large variety of goods including chocolates, sweets and other sweet treats. Furthermore, there is also a section of stuffed toys in the store. This includes the Hershey's pillow and the Reese pillow as well. In the store i was fascinated by a lot of things and in particular the Nutella which originated from Piedo Italy. I saw a large bottle of Nutella costing around $72. It is way bigger than the mega sized Nutella and no surprise, you can dip your white bread and put in the bottle of Nutella.

The store reminded me of the Charlie Chocolates Factory as I watched the movie last time... Lots of chocolate and a lot of great treats for me to see... Upon seeing all the candy, i decided to settle for M&Ms which was the peanut butter M&Ms. I could not find it for quite awhile as how they used to see it at my convenience store. The taste and the chocolate melted in my mouth. Mmm mmm.. it tasted really good and the taste of nostalgia brings on the taste in my mouth!

I will definitely be back to buy more of their items when i am around this area again.

Another outlet at Golden Mile! Smile Jun 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hawker Centre | Desserts and Cakes

The first time that i have tried Lao Ban Beancurd was the time i tried it at the Old Airport Road hawker centre. Ever since then, i have been craving for this bean curd but of course at a more convenient location.

On a Saturday afternoon after shopping at the Army Market at Golden Mile Food Centre 2nd level, i decided to have lunch at that same location. Level 1 and B1 serves different kinds of food. For example, the basement level serve more Muslim cuisine. On the 1st level serves a more Chinese cuisine.

After a hearty meal at the 1st level of the food centre, i decided to have some have a quality check on the stall just to see the consistency of the bean curd. The location of this stall is situated very distinctly at the corner with a very big and yellow sign board. You would not be able to miss the stall.

Ok firstly for the bean curd, since i decided to take away the bean curd it would let me experiment on how the bean curd will taste like since i usually devour the dessert. I decided to savor it tasting it bit by bit and a little by little. Tasting the bean curd, i saw the skin on the top and the way it jiggles. Unlike other Bean curd stalls that i tried, there is no layer of sugar syrup present. I took the opportunity to cut the bean curd into a few pieces to see about the residue of the bean curd and found something white and it looked to me as if it is had a little Soy Milk.

The taste did not disappoint me as well because it maintained its smoothness and the freshness. I just had a little chat with the lady at the stall and asked her if it is all under 1 boss who delivers and distributes the bean curd and she said that it is being distributed in the morning and all the outlets are the same. I did this because personally i just wanted to find out the credibility of the stall because i did not know much about this stall except that it tasted very good. I got to know a little bit about this stall because of my curiosity.

Here is how you get to the army market for some who are not sure of how to get there. I usually head over to Lavender MRT on the East West Line. Once you reach the MRT, you have to take the exit that leads towards the ICA. Turn left before the ICA and head towards the connector, walk towards the blocks and keep walking straight through the blocks. You should walk straight all the way and you should spot a small police post. Once you see that, you should walk slightly left and keep on walking straight. You should aim for the concourse because Golden Mile Food Centre is around there.
