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.

Not consistent OK Jun 05, 2013

Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes | Pasta | Salads | Pets Friendly

I have come to Serangoon Gardens many times to find out that this place has a very fluctuating standard of service.

I have been coming here for years and i have been hoping that its service will improved and sometimes i feel that it has been improving and it has been better and at times it has been declining in its standards of service.

For example during March this year, i was heading there since one of my friends is residing around that area. A simple meet up at a relaxing location was ideal for a Saturday night! The service was sub-standard and the food was below par.

A couple of weeks later i decided to head there again and their service was fantastic, very prompt and a lot of initiative was taken by the staff. Do take note, i will be very fair when it comes to service and comparison, with the crowd being about the same and the service staff being equal in strength. You can tell when a service staff is busy and when it isn't. Working in F&B, you might probably know..

To further prove my point, i went there a couple more times because the "chill" factor was there, an array of up and down service was being presented to us. Just booze and beers were consumed during the visits. We ordered a constant however, and that was the nachos chips with the cheese and salsa dip.. Cold cheese and nachos do not really go well together and furthermore, the dip was a measly squeeze and when we asked for a top up with payment, it was lesser and the reaction was priceless...

However, if you are looking for a chill here, just come order some booze and beer because the ambience is good, it is dark and there is English Premier League that plays on Saturday night.

Delivery from Spize Cafe Smile Jun 05, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Multi-Cuisine | Halal

Celebrating my friends 21st birthday, we decided to order 2 types of food. One was pizza from Canadian Pizza and the other was from Spize Cafe...

We ordered a few items to celebrate our friends birthday. One was the Nasi Goreng Pattaya (Fried Rice in omelet), another dish was the Mee Goreng Seafood, 2 egg prata, 1 Rose syrup with milk (Bandung) and 1 Ice Milo....

I tasted quite a bit of this food, the Mee Goreng was not that oily, quite tasty and well mixed filled with the egg and a very sweet tomato sauce to accompany the food. One of the key things that it included was the seafood of course! It had the squid rings, the squid rings were not as rubbery as i thought it would be. The prawns were also juicy and quite fresh. Seems the standards were quite good and it remains quite food...

The Nasi Goreng Pattaya was really good. This dish was very surprising and it was quite good because a lot of this dish disappoints me a lot. It was quite moist and the portions were quite big for the price we paid around $7 for it... The omelet was covered well and the rice was warm when it arrived.

The Egg Prata was good big as well. Quite funny see to 4 persons to eat 2 egg prata.. But in the name of friendship everything funny seems pretty good... it comes in a brown wrapper for the delivery..

Lastly, we ordered 1 Bandung and 1 Sprite... to fit the basic order of the delivery. Now you may ask what i am talking about.

Spize restaurant has a delivery service in which they have a criteria to fit. Under this criteria, there are 2 checklists. One is minimum order and one is delivery charge. We ordered to a total of $27 for the food and drinks and since i was in zone 3, i had to pay $8 for the delivery charge coming up to a total of $35... Such an eventful day with some good food..

Din Tai Fung! XIAO LONG BAO! Smile Jun 04, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Dim Sum

Just before my ORD, a couple of my friends and i were headed over to this outlet to try out their food. Located at the basement of Raffles City, this place is very busy! So i went earlier to queue up for my place. No reservations were allowed especially on the weekends. Unfortunately for us, we went on a Friday! I waited for about 30 minutes before seats were available. The one thing this place does is that for a table of 4, they fit in 6 people! Quite smart...

Anyways, this place was something i wanted to try for quite some time. I ordered Xiao Long Bao and Fried Rice with the deep fried pork chop. I spent around $25 including some drinks...

The Xiao Long Bao comes in 10 pcs... Juicy and tasty especially with the stew inside the dumpling. It has been said that it takes a special skill to make the XLB... Tasty but clearly not the best that i have tasted. Maybe it is due to overwhelming response so anyways, it is pretty goood for me.

The service is good and i actually put my chinese speaking knowledge to good use. They were pretty jovial about it but they were pretty Okay and served us quite well....

A slice of heaven in your mouth Smile May 30, 2013

Categories : Hawker Centre | Desserts and Cakes

There is always a place where you can't never forget.. Living near Toa Payoh, i felt so honored to have a small shop called Lao Ban Beancurd.. I have tried the one at Old Airport Road near Dakota crescent...

Wells, after church or evening mass on Sunday, i was greatly hungry and went to check out the Lao Ban beancurd at the Toa Payoh area.. There are no seats there but nevertheless we enjoyed the nice cool breeze by the veranda or isle along the corridor..

The taste is consistent... Like a slice of heaven in your mouth, no other feeling can roughly describe how i am feeling about the taste. Very smooth and the skin is obvious...

Spent around $1.50 per serving of the Lao Ban Beancurd, what a day to end your weekend...
