Greater the lot, bigger the stomach

Went for a great place for brunch over the weekend. Was a chance finding as I was not sure where to go. Was just taking a stroll around the cove and browsing through the line of restaurants to see which pique my interest. The name of the restaurant was quite unique and the place looks quite nice and refreshing. So decided to give it a try. The price was not the plus point but the quality of the food was. The big breakfast was really good and the salad was fresh as well. The uniqueness of the salad sounded a bit weird but tasted really good. Definitely worth a try.

Back again.

Getting used to coming back to this place for lunch. The lunch set is really value for money. Today’s menu consist of salmon chowder, hainanese pork chop rice and ending of with the usual coffee. The soup was really good with chunks of salmon that you bite into. The pork chop was a little disappointing cos it doesn’t taste like the traditional version that you get in Malaysia. But overall, still a good meal and great start to the work week.

Wonderful dinner by the sea, almost.

Had a wonderful dinner at the island resort of sentosa. Went on the Web to search their signature and it was really great. The pork jowl pizaa and beef cheek tortellini. Both dishes were wonderful and the quality of the eat was good. The pizza had a stronger pork smell whichay not suit the taste of some. The pasta was amazing with not a strong beefy smell.

The restaurant ambience was great as well. Was advised to sit indoors if you’re afraid of mosquitoes. But the alfresco dining area had a view of the south China area. So chose, dining with a great view but be food for the mosquitoes or fine in comfort with a slightly lesser view.

New place, novel lunch

Was exploring a new area in Singapore and ended up at an interesting place for lunch. Was near a very popular food court but it was closed during the day.

The lunch set served during the weekday was really affordable with quite decent coffee. The soup of the day (tomato soup) was really good and didn’t taste too sour as with most other soups. The main course of braised pork belly was served in a retro style bowl but not something I’ve seen before. The pork belly was braised really well though it was a bit too busy for me. The fat content was ok and the salad was quite nice. The ending with coffee was really great and looking forward to come here again.

Wrapping a wonderful trip.

Spent the last day of my Japan trip in Tokyo. Had a full day to roam around before making my way to the airport. Stopped by this amazing mall with amazing cafe. The coffee is really good. The ambience was nice as I sat down watched as the world go by in front of you. Makes me just want to sit there for as long as possible. Will try to compile the photos and put up a itinerary for a trip to Kyoto in time to come.

Ramen, ramen and more ramen!

Can’t say you’ve been to Japan without trying their ramen. In fact, I tired three different ramen over two days and suffering from ramen overload. Although all three were different, but they were so good. Not something you’ll be able to find in Singapore. And definitely the prices here are definitely cheaper. On contrary to my thoughts, ordering the food is easy and some staff are able to help you with some English. The vending machine also has upgraded to include English menu at some places. Definitely something not to be missed when you’re in Japan.

Takoyaki, almost authentic way

Had takoyaki from a Popular chain in Japan and it was really good. The skin was crispy and the inner is soft with a huge chunk of octopus inside. Haven’t tasted something like this before. Although I later found out that takoyaki originated from Osaka. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to taste the authentic one during this trip.
