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?

McDonald’s breakfast, bliss.

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?

Home-Cooked Saturday Dinners.

October 22, 2009

Every Saturday’s spent with great food, great company with my family and well, the usual Taiwanese drama on TV. It’s what we call our Saturday culture.

Family time together should never be neglected. We come together coz of food? Or is food the reason we come together? I’d choose the latter.

I love close up shots of my food. Makes me feel close enough to smell it. *sniffs*

Sometimes The Simplest Hawker Food Works.

June 26, 2009

When you’ve got family with you, all you need is a good program playing on the tele, a merry heart and a series of random hawker fare. 

Such is bliss.

Wasabi Tei – A Hidden Treasure In Singapore.

December 16, 2008

Yes…this place has a grumpy chef, a 20% additional charge if you order more than once and a counter seating enough to fit a mere 16 persons at one go-but in my opinion, it has the best Japanese food in Singapore. 

Food rating: 5 over 5 stars.
Service: 1.5 over 5 stars. 

Moses educated me on how the place works and did everything right by ordering all our food the first time and I made sure I did nothing to aggravate the chef (I took photos discreetly haha). We watched in wonder as the chef’s wife explained to unsuspecting customers that second orders will cost them 20% more and the chef telling a customer that no waiting is allowed in the vicinity. 

Wasabi Tei is a nice quaint place hidden on the fifth level at Far East Plaza. Take the lift nearest at Subway (ground floor) and turn left upon exiting the lift. Here’s the chef’s wife washing up while her husband busied himself in the kitchen.

The starters-free of charge. I can only make out that it has delicious pork bits and dried shrimp with some tea-leaf like vegetable. This made us so hungry for our main course.
 

The absolute best and thickest salmon sashimi-S$9. This was sliced on the spot and served to us, honestly it was the best I’ve ever tasted in the 25 years I’ve lived on planet earth.

My other favourite, swordfish sashimi-S$12. Just the right amount of juice and fleshy-taste to it, simply perfect. How do you beat that thickness?
 

Moses’ main course, a large pot of soup with cabbage and swordfish-S$18. The codfish was so tender, the soup was so sweet, the vegetables added an amazing texture and flavour to the entire dish. I was blown away. A large portion that is definitely worth its price tag. 
 

My garlic beef rice-S$13. Delicious and fragrant.
 

Watermelon-free of charge, very sweet and juicy but I could not stomach it all after the main course.

Moses and I are already planning to go again soon. This was such an experience for me!

Chicken Rice Opposite St. Andrew’s Cathedral.

December 8, 2008

Some pretty decent chicken rice that is priced at only S$3.50 opposite City Hall MRT Station. (Near Breadtalk

I chose to eat chicken chop rice instead of the usual chicken rice, with loads of sweet black sauce added on the rice. What you see here is just the first drizzle. 😛
 

My friends and I shared some fried tofu on the side as well, not too bad I must say.

A great place for a no-fuss and cheap Chinese meal in Singapore.

Yong He Eating House At Geylang, Singapore.

November 24, 2008

After an album showcase by pop singer JJ Lin last night, my parents and I headed down to Geylang’s Yong He Eating House for some Taiwanese supper, which is open 24 hours a day. It is located at the corner of Geylang Lor 27A. The food there was seriously awesome, I went to bed a happy girl.

The shop at 10pm.
 

Sweet beancurd with peanuts.
 

My sister and her plain beancurd.
 

Delicious and freshly made fried youtiao.

Savory glutinous rice cake, with pork floss and preserved radish on the inside.

I think this marks the beginning of my Geyland food adventure. Also, I am now all the more excited for the true and authentic Taiwanese food when I visit Taipei in December. 🙂 
 

Yummy thoughts running wild in my head.

A Lovely Japanese Treat From Bruce.

November 20, 2008

A while back, my dear friend Bruce and I caught up over a Japanese dinner at Shokudo Japanese Food Bazaar, Raffles City. I had my favourite Sashimi and Cold-Soba. I’ll rate it an overall 4 over 5 stars

Cold-Soba, great for a meal on a hot day.

Fish at its best state, raw.

Thanks for the treat Bruce! 🙂
