Hidden Gem in the West Smile Nov 11, 2013

Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen | Sushi/Sashimi

In Japanese, Fuku means Happiness while ya refers to House, and when directly translated Fukuya simply means Happiness House. This happiness house silently reside in Jurong Country Club. I would never had expected good food to be inside a Country Club since I stereotyped it as where the rich golfers will go until I personally tried the food there myself. It's like a hidden gems waiting to be discovered by food lovers.

Fukuya offers a wide variety of options for those craving authentic Japanese cuisine in utterly perfect presentation. The dishes served are photo-worthy as it's often decorated with flowers or edible garnishes on exquisite dining wares. Jap-food lover you just had to add this one in your 'to-eat-list'.

It's best to start off with Zensai, another term for Appetizer
Seafood Mayo on Fresh Salad - $10.80

 
Mixture of two types of seaweed, the green and brown one which I hardly see it in the market (probably just me), topped with my favourite seafood mayo~ The seaweed is really salty but crunchy if you tried eating it separately. However, once combined with the seafood mayo, you won't really feel that it's overpowering, instead it brings out an unique taste to the dish.

Dobin Mushi - $10.80

 
Teapot Soup
I had never tried something like this before, and it's quite a cool concept of having your soup served. It's sweet and refreshing. Ingredients looks simple, mainly consisted of mushrooms and oysters, but brought out the best of out it. Two ways to savour this, by adding the lime or skipping it. I tried both methods and preferred having my soup without lime.

Sashimi - $68.80

 
Fukuya Tokusen Platter (7 kinds)
Toro, Uni, Botan Ebi, Salmon Belly, Katsuo Tataki, Shima Aji and Tai
Not a fan of raw food, and my favourite food in a sushi bar is all the cooked food like crab-sticks, unagi and stuffs, but decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did. All their sashimi are super fresh as it's all imported from Japan. It brings out the true definition of 'fresh saltwater' because you literally can taste it. It's worth every cent in your pocket, and everyone is all like I am going to come back to get this after they get their bonus.

Yakimono - $20.80

 
Gintara Mentaiyaki (All time favourite)
It's the store's all time favourite, and no doubt mine as well. Grilled fish with mentaiyaki on banana leaf. Their mentaiyaki is thick and creamy and the banana leaf underneath gave it a little burnt feeling which enhance the taste and smell even better like how food being cooked under charcoal flames.
Absolutely a must-try vote from me.

Fukuya Aburi Sushi Mori (5 kinds) - $28.80

 
Salmon, Anugu, Akami, Buri Belly, Unkun Uni & Ikura Topping
Everyone there was trying to convince me it wasn't spicy and stuffs, and I did finish all the sushi that are sadly all coated with wasabi except the unkun uni(sea urchin) one, by gulping water. I have to say that they are using authentic wasabi as it's not spicy and does not sting the eyes, it's just that the smell of wasabi that I disliked about. Nevertheless, the dish is much raved about and each sushi has its individual sauce and there is no need for soy sauce. I guess it's bad luck I couldn't enjoy this pretty much.

Menrui - $26.80

 
Fukuya Seafood Ramen (Small)
This bowl of awesomeness is called small, and I think it takes two to finished it. Now I cannot imagine how many could their 'big' portion feeds. Do not be fooled by the colour of the ramen, it's not spicy at all, and surprisingly it's sweet. Vegetables, seafood are all tossed inside to create this sweet yet rich flavouring pumpkin-taste-alike soup. As you can see, the ingredients are super fresh and generously spread around the chewy noodles.

Kyoho Ice Cream with Kuri Kanronni - $8.80

 
Japanese Grape Flavour with Boiled Chestnuts
As usual, something I have been waiting for since the start because I am a sucker for desserts and I love KYOHO GRAPES. The sweetness is just right for me and it is as smooth as Gelato, while the chestnut adds texture to the smooth ice-cream. It's a unique combination as I have never expected chestnuts to go well with grapes but it did.

I had a great yet different kind of experience there, and I believe you guys should try it too. It's always more difficult to find places with good food and good services. If you happened to be hanging around Singapore Science Centre or Jurong Country Club drop by and enjoy a feast of authentic Jap food.

Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | BBQ

 
Dong Dae Mun is a famous store selling Korean finger food on the go. They have many varieties of finger food that I couldn't make up my mind. However I decided to choose sticks which they are famous for. 

1. Korean Meatball

 

I not really a fan of its meatball, and coated w chili and mayo as well.

2. Seoul Crispy Chicken

 

It's also pretty good, chicken nicely done however its coated with chili and mayo

3. Bulgaria Chicken

 

Chicken is tasty and heavily coated with teriyaki sauce. Fragrance added bonus point. 
4. Shiitake Mushroom

 

It's tasty with strong teriyaki taste, and I love the mushrooms.

Dolce Tokyo Cafe OK Oct 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Japanese | Fusion | Restaurant | Desserts and Cakes


 

Chosen the Essential British @ $18 as it's Dolce Tokyo signature breakfast dish. It's a combination of baked beans, Chorizo Sausages,    Scrambled eggs on mash potatoes drizzled with brown sauce and cheese on toast. Don't be deceived by its small portion, it's actually very filling. It's quite unique and different from the normal breakfast set. It's served on chopping board and it's good and worth the price. 

 
Situated silently at level 3 of 313, it's right beside lowrys farm. It's a nice place to chill around or discuss stuffs. Playing light music with elegant decorations, it's a cozy area to enjoy Japanese desserts along your meals. Unlike the traditional Jap dining place we are more custom to, Dolce Tokyo belongs to the modern type of restaurant.

Salmon Fillet OK Oct 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Restaurant | Pasta | Pizza


 
Started the lunch with Salmon, my favorite food. I order a medium done Grilled Fillet of Salmon with sun-dried tomato and pine nut sauce @ $21.80. It's actually fresh grilled salmon with salad and sauce. The fish is tender and one bite you know you are in for a treat. However the pine nut sauce is tard oily for my taste. I would prefer eating the fillet on its own. Its base is coated with  tomato sauce similar to spaghetti, absolutely tasty.

 

We chose the Profiteroles @ $8.20 - Choux pastry pastry puffs filled with Chantilly cream and topped with melted chocolate sauce

 

In short it tasted like gelato coated cream puff. My must order when I return. 

 
Located right upon the exit of Somerset, right away this restaurant in your view. It looked classy and a great place to hang out with your friends. Staffs are friendly ambience is good. I think it pretty much summarize what you will experience when you come here.

Charlie Browm Cafe OK Oct 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Burgers and Sandwiches | Kids-Friendly


 

Additionally to pair up with pancakes we chose their another signature drink of the house - Ice Charlie Mocha @ $5.70
It's good even without the sugar, great to perks up your day.

 

We ordered their signature pancakes - Lucy's Strawberry @ $9.80. 
It's a hot pancakes drizzled with strawberry purée served with whipped cream. 
It looks good however it's taste is average only. The strawberry purée is light, tasted more like jam instead. It's not enough to cover the pancakes.

 

Located along the path to H&M, it's very accessible and noticeable. However it may be hot during peak hours. Just look out for the little guy above, you just can't miss it.
