Great Bento Lunch with Godsis @ Anzu Japan Food Town on 9Feb2018

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

had a wonderful 2pax bento lunch with godsis at anze, japan food town level 4 wisma atria on 9.2.2018. ^^

meimei doesn’t take sashimi much. last time we had yakiniku at heijoen so we thought we have something different this time.

the dainty bentos are not really my preferred dishes, but this one only S$15 & i don’t really mind tonkatsu (breaded pork) as a main..

the set turned out to be quite delicious & good combo of dishes…meimei was very happy with the meal..

nice salad 

the salad was actually quite nice with the dressing. it was just shredded cabbage & some pickled radish..

nice salad 

the pickled radish was very good, and went perfectly with the salad. i tried the yuzu dressing (good), the pepper cream dressing (even better) and also the sweet tonkatsu sauce (quite ok)..

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

there was chawamushi, miso soup, seaweed, cold soba, pumpkin, tamago (very good, better than my own for sure), and a very good fish kakiage…

S$15 lunch bento at anzu 

my preference still sashimi don & beef but this bento was very ok for me, and for just S$15 + 10% no GST.

after lunch meimei bought kopi at toast masters…nice lunch & chat with godsis.

Lovey Fish Belly Noodles & Fatty Thai Wanton Mee on 7Feb2018

WM & me

my OPS bro WM has been waxing lyrical about this fried fish head noodles & thai wanton mee at beach road. so this morning we decided to meet for makan there at 10.30am on 4.2.2018.

S$5 fish belly noodles soup

like early time for me & no customers but they said they sold out the fish head.

deep-fried fish head can be very nice but often they are boney & no much meat, so i don’t miss it much unless i know it is good…

S$5 fish belly noodles soup

this fish belly soup as it turned out was very good! nice batter, fresh fish & thick cut about 6+1smaller pieces.

the broth was so very tasty, lots of ooomph! & the noodles were really interesting, lite a very tasty yeemeen perhaps al dente??? anyway very nice la & not common like the thick bee hoon (which also nice, i like).

fish head & fish belly noodles stall

not sure the name of this fish noodles stall…they also served tomyam fish noodles so maybe it’s the same owner as fatty thai…

fish noodles soup stall

 like this fish noodles best this morning…

S$4 thai wanton noodles

the thai wanton noodles was also good…

S$4 thai wanton noodles

it looked no different from our wanton noodles…there were 2 crispy & 2soup wanton…the char siew was better, more flavourful than most wanton mee..& they gave lots of vegetables & lar pok (crispy lard)..

& the special was some spicy thai chilli looked a small teaspoonful, but it did add a subtle quite wonderful flavour to the noodles..maybe can get this powder & do at home..

thai wanton noodles

very enjoyable bowl of goodness..

fetty thai wanton noodles

i would take this again.

S$3 char kuay teow

since we were there, decided to share a S$3 char kuay teow..

it was good too, not exceptional, completely competent..

S$3 char kuay teow

enjoyed it too..

he ji 和记

a great outing this morning, like brunch just enjoying a few noodle dishes together & chatting & sharing.

weiyi laksa 唯一辣沙

my usual order = S$5 No 6 (shredded chicken, cockles, taupok) & thick beehoon mee.

i bought D24 & MSW from ah seng the evening before, so we had our own durian feast, 2 of us….


D24 was very good slight bitter..MSW initially i thought not as good as last evening but i had it again later it was very good la!

S$7 sin min road (rong cheng) bakuteh

we ordered one sin ming road bakuteh, $7 for 2 prime ribs, to share.

pretty good, though one rib was like 1/2 the size of the other…WM gave me the bigger rib…

S$7 sin min road (rong cheng) bakuteh

still nice but not so great as before..really the ones i made were better, both the ribs & the soup.

S$6 roast duck drumstick

saw the roast duck rice stall, decided to buy a roast duck drumstick to try.. S$6! i guess that’s the going price nowsadays.

choco banana bingsu

choco banana bingsu

choc banana also nice.

HC bought 2 bingsu share by 4pax for S$32..

soon lee

i decided to buy char kuay teow, fried carrot cake & orh luak at soon lee. no queue at lunch time.

S$3 char kuay teow

S$3 char kuay teow  was good standard, tasty, good wok hae, and lots of hum (cockles) & ingredients, i think very good for the price la…

S$3 fried carrot cake

S$3 fried carrot cake also good, tasty, not too sweet, good ttexture of carrot cake, most important flavourful..

S$5 orh luak

S$5 orh luak good too…

so though i did not expect much to begin with, i think this soon lee standard is very good for the price, assuming the serving size & taste is consistent. first time i ate here.

indian rojak

LKY ordered the indian rojak next stall. can’t remember the price but it was not expensive & it was good too…


stall name is munazzah. this indian rojak also what i like, something i would take again next time i am here…

S$5 nasi ayam penyet

LKH favourite here is the S$5 nasi ayam penyet .

and it was good, chicken crispy, good taste, chilli & other condiments also good.

S$5 nasi ayam penyet

5 of us shared the food so got to try different dishes, but i would be happy to just have this S$5 nasi ayam penyet too.

nur indah kitchen

LCM went to queue for the nasi ayam penyet.

pig innard soup???

we were seated next to the pig innard soup stall, so NCL went to get a bowl. ingredients were normal i guess, the soup base never seen before, and don’t intend to see again la!

So-so Mediocre Laksa @ Ang Mo Kio Lor Mee Laksa on 30Jan2018

S$4 laksa

send my car to sin min workshop to do the brakes on 30.1.2018.

had good coffee & waited at sin min bkt & hup seng braised duck for my RI to pick me up.

amk lor mee laksa

he wanted to go to ang mo kio ave 10, and decided to queue for laksa at ang mo kio lor mee & laksa.

i asked for S$3 laksa add cockles but they don’t do that so it was just S$4 laksa instead.

i also asked for thick bee hoon mee & i heard the lady repeated that, yet when my friend brought the laksa to the table it was jsut thick beehoon.

S$4 laksa

laksa looked ok, but taste quite poor in my view…wonder why the queue, not really cheap & not really good. must be my liking different la…no oomph, lemak w/o savoury flavours..this laksa just not for me…didn’t finish it, about zero attraction for me.

for me, weiyi laksa @ tanglin halt is a lot better than this…

S$5 No Good Fish Belly Soup @ Hong Kong Street Chun Kee Commonwealth Crescent Food Centre on 28Jan2018

S$5 no good fish belly soup

having dinner alone this evening. decided to drop by hk street chun kee at commonwealth crescent food centre level 2 for simple fish belly thick beehoon soup on 28.1.2018.

hk street old chun kee

i ordered the S$5 fish belly thick beehoon soup.

spicy black bean sauce song fish head 松鱼头here very good. 

so quite surprising for me that the fish belly soup quite bad!

S$5 no good fish belly soup

the fried fish was good serving with 5+ thick cut arge fried fish slices. that was good!

but the soup – it was totally tasteless? how could  that be leh? there was no evaporated milk in it..they did not ask me..i thought they should ask or default have evaporated milk as that is the usual preparation..

anyway it was the soup base that was tasteless, like drinking water…

S$9.80 Kaisen Mountain Mori @ Sabar Japan Food Town on 29Jan2018

S$9.80 kaisen mountain mori 

went with my OPS bros WM & WT to japan food town level 4 wisma for the S$9.80 kaisen mountain mori at sabar on 29.1.2018. ^^

i tried it recently with my sis & bil. this the first time WM & WT tried.

it was a small bowl & actually quite a huge serving of sashimi, basically the bara chirashi don sashimi cuts.

S$9.80 kaisen mountain mori 

bowl was overflowing, so they provided a larger bowl if you want to eat from the larger bowl.

came with soup & you can also get a free saba sushi from the jpassport app & facebook.

S$9.80 kaisen mountain mori

sashimi – salmon, maguro fresh & sweet & vinegared cured saba very nice too…certainly a very good donburi for S$9.80, of course not expect premium cut sashimi, but it was good & we all enjoyed it. ^^

good S$6 kim keat hokkien mee

LKH visiting sis staying in the area, so 4 of us RI bros arranged to meet at toa payoh lor 4 food centre for makan on 27.1.2018. ^^

kim keat hokkien mee 

last time i came with my OPS bro WM, kim keat hokkien noodles was not opened yet (only open at 11am).

good S$6 kim keat hokkien mee

LKY went to queue up for hokkien noodles. 3 of us went to the food centre & ordered laksa & lor mee.

LKH went to the coffeeshop to buy kopi.

the S$6 hokkien noodles were good standard. very tasty, moist, noodles not overdone, chilli nice & spicy. very good hokkien mee.

Lik Ming S$4 laksa

we ordered S$3 laksa add S$1 cockles.

it was good laksa, nothing special..not the very lemak katong laksa type, but more traditional savoury type…

actually it was not savoury enough for me..i like the weiyi laksa type, maybe more haebee meat flavoured not just coconut flavour..

S$4 zhi xiang lor mee

also ordered the zhi xiang lor mee which i had with WM last time. 

we had $3 & 加料 S$1. it was pretty good…just that lor mee not really my favourite.

for me, kim keat hokkien noodles was the best today…

lor mee was good, competent lor mee; but i think soon heng at beo crescent & hai tang at mei ling food centre were better.

laksa good too but i am partial to weiyi laksa, and laksa is lower on my radar c/w ah heng curry chicken noodles at hong lim.

CL talked about toptable during the birthday dinner at heavenly divine on 5.1.2018, and the guys decided to have this lunch.

toptable S$13.80 3-course lunch menu

the menu for this week. 🙂

i not fond of chowder & don’t particularly like corn soup, so i went for the chicken salad.

it was quite well done. like i said previously, it is better than cafeteria standard here, almost good restaurant standard.

corn chowder

corn chowder

corn chowder looked great too & the friends who ordered liked it.

chicken & mushroom fricassee

i asked the student server if the chicken or fish main course was more popular. i preferred chicken but i was having chicken salad starter so i was considering if i should have fish instead.

he said salmon is salmon. the chicken fricassee is a bit different. actually it’s just white wine sauce reduced. i decided to give it a try anyway…

chicken & mushroom fricassee

& it was tasty and done well.

chicken was tender, not too large a helping, good enough.

chicken & mushroom fricassee

altogether an enjoyable dish, nicely presented & good taste.

all my friends decided to have the chicken fricassee.

white choc mousse, sour cherries & raspberry sorbet

the trio of dessert nothing special, but well done. a great dessert, that alone would cost >S$12 in a good restaurant.

coffee was included & 3 of us added $0.50 each for cappuccino & latte.

lunch was just S$70 for 5pax, best value for money 3-course lunch in singapore! ^^

S$16 spicy black bean sauce song fish head

daughter liked the spicy black bean sauce song fish head 松鱼头we had here recently, so we decided to have 4pax family dinner at hong kong street old chun kee at commonwealth crescent on 21Jan2018. ^^

son, daughter, me all loved the fish head. wife could take some also…not her favourite…

S$12 salted egg pork ribs

children were hungry (or greedy), so we ordered more dishes… 🙂

S$12 salted egg pork ribs

the salted egg pork ribs was good, nice salted egg flavour, and the deepfried pork rib nicely done, tender & tasty…

butter squid

the butter squid less good.

basically squid was overcooked & a bit rubbery. i can do better than this. i hate doing deepfry stuff though…use lots of oil, need to think what to do with the oil etc..better to eat out for such dishes…

S$5 sliced fish thick beehoon

they did not have fish belly, so we made do with sliced fish…for me quite different la..

the soup & noodles still nice so daughter still liked it…S$5 a good price, can be an individual meal just S$5 no service no GST..

S$10 medium (2pax) sanlo horfun

the S$10 sanlo horfun felt a bit expensive..

still good wokhae…but somehow the smaller one we had just 2 weeks ago was much more flavourful…

S$10 medium (2pax) sanlo horfun

Bring Back Roast Goose from 鹅皇馆 Hong Kong & 5pax Home Dinner on 19Jan2018

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

we had roast goose twice, at yat lok stanley street & also  鹅皇馆 opposite metropark mongkok hotel, during the recent hong kong/shenzhen trip 14-18.1.2018.

on the last day 18.1.2018, our flight was 7.55pm.

i decided to buy 2 roast goose back, HK$380 each, about S$65 each, quite ok….sis bought a whole wax goose HK$188.

i gave 1/2 to my brother YS, and 1/2 to my OPS bro WM, and kept 1 roast goose for my family.

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

transportation was a problem. i decided to handcarry up the plane like i did last time.

this time the shop tried to charge me HK$30 for each box to keep the roast goose – not very smart these people…i was not going to pay HK$60 for 2 boxes…

maybe as a result, my wrapping were not good like last time. another problem i now recall was that last time, i left the duck open to air in the plastic bag. this time they were wrapped up, so there was condensation & the skin was moist when i finally reached home & unpacked.

another problem was last time WM & I bought 1/2 roast goose each. this time they were whole goose & the shop forgot to remove the metal pin. this caused problem at the security, and was quite messy as i had to unwrap & remove the pin & it was all oily & messy.

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

last time i arrived home early & we ate the roast goose as late supper on the same day.

this time i reached home like 1.30am, so goose had to be eaten following day, and i arranged for them to be air-cooled overnight with a fan blowing to dry the skin…

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

goose was still very tasty & flavourful (WM actually ate it a few days later & heat it up) …but really not the same without the very crispy when served in hong kong.

claypot chicken rice

for the evening, family gathered for 5pax dinner.

so i made claypot chicken rice to serve with the roast goose.

claypot chicken rice

claypot chicken rice

my usual very good standard claypot rice.

very flavourful, and tender, moist & tasty chicken, daughter love the chicken.

prawn egg omelette

wife made her prawn egg omelette, which everyone likex.

lady fingers

& aunty Bes, our helper, did a sambal lady fingers. very good! 🙂

great dinner! 🙂

roast goose from 鹅皇馆 hong kong

i think it is worthwhile to bring back the roast goose. it was only S$65 & some coffeeshop or stalls roast duck here already going for like S$42..

but best if hand carry with double layer heavy duty plastic bag (oily), and kept it open to air…a broad tote bag would be convenient.

Very Good 7pax Family Dinner @ Patara Tanglin Mall on 12Jan2018

tomyam talay S$12

had 7pax family dinner at patara tanglin mall this evening on 12.1.2018. ^^

my impression was long time not come here…but actually when i looked up, in fact we had a poor 2pax dinner here on 17.2.2017.

this time in fact it was very good food…love it!

they no longer served the pot of tomyam soup, so we ordered just 2 tomyam talay S$12, a clear & a original…for this place, the original always better, much more flavourful..

pomelo salad

pomelo salad

pomelo salad was good & refreshing, maybe 4 pieces of medium prawns..

prawn curry

everyone loved the prawn curry, really fragrant & flavourful…

prawn curry

we ended up ordering like 5 white rice at S$3 each. curry was just so good!

sotong in salted egg sauce

the squid in salted egg sauce didn’t sound very thai..not the usual xi char preparation..and this pretty good on its own!

duck curry

red duck curry always our favourite..

nearly as good as the prawn curry..

green curry beef

usual we take green curry chicken. this evening we took beef.

we didn’t think the flavours went/combined very well. beef was tenderised but a bit too beefy/strong..didn’t go with the curry..

australia steak

the australian sirloin was very good…

australia steak

tender, chargrilled very well & medium rare, and nice beef sauce.

lamb rack

the lamb rack was excellent too…

lamb rack

most like the lamb even more than the beef..i do too!

olive rice

the olive rice was still good.

everyone thought the serving ahd shrunk a lot.

bill S$217

daughter had this entertainer app thing. we could get 3 main courses free.

so dinner was $217nett after three 1 for 1 main courses from entertainment app. pretty good!

Good S$3 Bakchormee at Blk 352 Clementi Ave 2 on 11Jan2017

S$3 bakchormee

went to my jogging buddy’s place for coffee this morning on 11.1.2018..

i have been ill-disposed the last few weeks so did not do my regular runs, just dropped by his place for morning coffee & chat.

on the way back, i dropped by sheng shiong @ blk 352 clementi ave 2 to get some sundries.

it was almost 12pm. i decided to try out the bakchormee stall at the coffeeshop.

S$3 bakchormee

turned out that the S$3 bakchormee was pretty good!

qq meepok, good amount ingredients, chilli ok, can do with a bit more vinegar…

S$3 bakchormee

not near the tai hwa bakchormee at crawford of course!

nor the lai heng bakchormee.. at toa payoh lor 6 or at airport T3…

but still pretty good at S$3 in a neighbourhood non-descript coffeeshop.

Great Lobsters @ Ah Yat Abalone Frum Restaurant on 10Jan2018

lobster in buttee lime sauce S$35 

went with wife to mosque street for some meeting at 5.30pm on 10jan2018.

after meeting, we decided to go to ah yat abalone forum at victoria street at hotel grand pacific for 2pax dinner.

prices had go up quite a bit since last time.

lobster is now S$35, instead of S$29.80 in dec2017, just couple weeks back! likewise tiger garoupa is now S$48/kg instead of S$38/kg previously.

razor clams S$5.50 

we ordered the garlic steamed razor clams, one each…no change in prices still S$5.50 a piece. 🙂

razor clams S$5.50 

it is consistently good in ah yat…

razor clams done just right, succulent, tasty, wonderful garlic oil sauce…

lobster in butter lime sauce S$35 

we ordered the lobster in butter lime sauce S$35.

this a new flavour we like..they don’t do pumpkin flavour here like ah yat grandstand, but this butter lime sauce very good la…

lobster baked in superior stock 上汤焗 S$35 

we looked at the order a crab tanhoon dish was like S$70, and a prawn tanhoon dish like S$50+…
