Izakaya Nijumaru – A Hidden Japanese Restuarant

Cuppage Plaza was much seen as a dodgy on the physical appearance while the building itself is lined with Japanese restaurants and one that attracted my attention was Izakaya Nijumaru. Not because it has almost filled out the entire stretch of shops along the Japanese restaurant, but the crowd that was waiting for their turns. Though I am a person that does not really like queuing for food, I took a chance an waited for a seat. After staying in Osaka Japan for two years, I have been a great fan of Japanese food that often I will ordered some much food that it takes two to finish ! Below are the some of the dishes I have ordered and finished. (My girl friend did helped …

Enjoy a Cup of Aromatic Coffee with Your Pet Dog at Sun Ray Cafe

Feeling bored at home with your dog in the lazy Sunday afternoon ? You can try going to Sun Ray Cafe. It is actually along the same street as The Coffee Daily which actually serves coffee as well. The difference is that at Sun Ray Cafe, they have a designated indoor air-conditioned area where you can dine together with your dog ! No worries, they are not serving dog food on the dining table to their masters. I had just finished a late lunch at Serangoon Gardens’ Sushi Tei and decided to go for a short coffee break to digest my heavy lunch. I was always the lover for Long Black, while my girlfriend and sister ordered for hot Latte and Cappuccino respectively. Though being a …

Hidden Treasure In Taiwan’s Yam Ball & Fabulous Pineapple Tart

Yam Ball My girlfriend’s sister was in Taiwan for a business trip and she came back with many of Taiwanese local snacks. One of the snacks which I tried was the Yam Ball. Each individual yam ball is nicely packed with a beautiful packing. Understand from my girlfriend’s sister that because it is freshly made, it does not last long in the packing before it turns bad. The entire Yam Ball was coated with a layer of golden brown roasted sesame seeds. The Yam ball was created with layer of thin crust and the ingredients was an outer layer of yam, followed by another thin layer of salted egg yolk and right in the centre is a marshmallow. (Oops, I ate the marshmallow). Pineapple Tart Pineapple …

Finally, I Have Reach Las Vegas, The Casino Resort City

The plane has touched down safely at the Las Vegas airport and it is also the end of the tormenting hours of transit and flight from Singapore to Las Vegas. Upon exiting the arrival halls, you will feel alive in the Casino City, with Jackpots machines litters across the luggage collection point. Something new which you will never see in Singapore, a 24-hour fresh flower vending machine! However, I could not really figure out why would a vendor place this machine at the airport while everyone is rushing to the casino city. The price is stated from USD 10 to USD 20 per bouquet and I would think it is overpriced compared to Singapore (except during Valentine’s Day). Without any further delay, we quickly exit the …

The Brat Sausages at Plaza Singapura

Fancy a German sausage on the go ? Try The Brat Sausages at Plaza Singapura. I was trying to get some small bites before I go for my movie at The Cathay while The Brat Sausages caught my attention. Though there was already many restuarants like Brozeit selling German sausages, I thought it is quite a good idea for this particular to sell a meal to consume at their little dining area or takeaway. I choose the Spicy Italian Pork Set Meal which comes with a drink and fries at a price of $13.40 (I paid additional $1.50 to change my drink to Snapple.) I ordered for a takeaway and ate at the open area outside of The Cathay so that I can smoke after my …

“Thick Skin” Popiah at The Old Malaya Cafe Tampines Mall

It has been ages since I last visit Tampines Mall, but as usual, traffic is really that heavy and parking lots are still very difficult to find. It was 3 pm in the lazy afternoon and I was strolling aimlessly with my girl friend after our movie at the cinema. I felt a bit hungry and decide to go for a small bite to fulfil my temporary hunger. I was walking pass stalls and it caught my attention of the popiah stall right outside of The Old Malaya Cafe. It looks delicious as I saw few people sitting around the tables are eating it as well so I set foot into the cafe. Related Post: MasterChef Asia has arrived Singapore ! The cafe was decorated in …
