Food In China, Through The Eyes Of Jeremy Ang.

January 14, 2011

My friend Jeremy has so kindly agreed to do a little food-photo exhibition here on my blog. I hope you’d enjoy his photos; his take on China’s food – which could either intrigue you or leave a bad taste in your mouth. 😉 So be warned before you proceed to scroll down any further.

“Situated next to the Great Wall museum at Badaling, the la-mian shop offers a refreshing, warm broth to the chilly Great Wall weather.”

“Fried Starfish. One of the many quirky street food sold just ten minutes away from the Wangfujing subway station.”

“Sea-horse on a stick. You won’t find this anywhere else. Wangfujing station.”

“When I heard that the Chinese eats anything that crawls, they weren’t kidding. Insect feast galore! Wangfujing station.”

(The next photo is not related to food but I couldn’t resist putting this photo in :P)

“A native Yunnan boy. Cute; the day he first met his dog.”

“Ah.. Had this in Yunnan. The dish in the middle is beer-fish. A definite must try in Western China.”

Are you now inspired to go to China to try these out for yourself (not the boy please)? 😉

An Overdose Of Mushroom.

January 10, 2011

Had dinner at Swensen’s and I had an overdose of mushroom…I’m drugged with goodness (and lots of laughter).

Mushroom soup in a bread bowl.  Deep fried mushrooms with mayonnaise. Mushroom Aglio-Olio Pasta.

Random: Do horbits love mushrooms because it is the only food that’s conveniently in their reach?

Tea Party.

This was a girly party my friends and I had last year. I hope you enjoy the photos and that it inspires you to have your own girly get-together soon (if you’re a girl, that is). 😉

Very soon, my dear friend Esther (who was hosting this party at her beautiful home) is going to have her first baby. I’m so excited to see baby Tyler! ^^

This avid baker actually made her wedding cake herself, it was rich and oh so delish!

You’re so gorgeous my dear. 🙂

The pleasures of being on leave. Hot coffee. Cold outside. People watch. iPod.

Beppu Dining Restaurant’s Spicy Chicken Ramen.

January 5, 2011

Happy new year to my dear readers. 🙂 May 2011 bring to you loads of laughter, joy and good conversations over delicious food.

Here’s my first food review of the year – Beppu Dining Restaurant’s Spicy Chicken Ramen (aka Japanese noodles).

Food rating: 3.5 over 5 stars.
Service: 4 over 5 stars.

I usually order it this way:

  • 2 Chilies (You can choose up to 8 Chilies? Hello? That’s crazy; but you can choose to order just the 8 Chillies soup for S$2)
  • Fried chicken to be served at the side (So that it doesn’t turn soggy, otherwise they serve it on top of the ramen soup)

I wouldn’t consider this ‘authentic’ Japanese ramen (bouncy noodles in soup, served with chicken/pork soup that’s boiled for hours), but I would say it’s a pretty good lunch-fix for ~S$12-15 per person (drinks included).

Have a go if you’re around the area:

20 Cross Street #01-19 China Court, China Square Central Singapore
Tel: +65 6438 0328

Opening Hours:
Weekdays: 11.30am – 3.00pm; 6pm – 10pm
Weekends: 12noon – 10pm

P.S: I’ve not tried their Japanese Shabu Shabu, anyone has and is it yummy?
