Visit to Hei Sushi – Singapore’s First Halal Sushi Belt Restaurant

It was in the late afternoon while my girlfriend and I needs to draw some cash and the only ATM machines near my house was at Sakae building at Tai Seng. While strolling along the building, we have saw this restaurant, a halal certified sushi belt restaurant and decided to give it a go. Perhaps it was Sunday and not dinner time, the crowd was not that much. Related: Special Sushi Birthday Cake at Link’s Hotel Teru Sushi. We are more curious rather then hungry, therefore only ordered a small portion of food. Conclusion I would not say that the food are of the best quality and freshness and the most disappointing was the fried sushi which was a total disaster. Instead of being piping hot …

Bijin Nabe Japanese Steamboat at Tsukada Nojo Chinatown

People queuing outside of the restaurant waiting for their turns. Before the end of year, I hope to fulfill one last resolution for the year of 2014 and that was to visit Tsukada Nojo again for their Bijin Nabe. I had a wonderful ramen lunch at Tsukada Nojo in Westgate previously and today I am here again for their Bijin Nabe, but at their Chinatown Point‘s outlet. Though plans have been laid days ago before the year end dinner, they does not accept reservation if the timing is before 6.30pm and the only way was to personally queue for seats. Traffic was bad that day and since we arrived, it was almost what we had predicted – people lining outside of the restaurant. Do not get it …

Chia Bee Lor Mee for Midnight Supper !

Chia Bee Lor Mee – Noodles and gravy are being packed separately. Before my sister landed in Singapore from her trip in Bali, her SMS had already came in the afternoon,  asking if I would be interested in having Lor Mee as supper. Knowing my sister for so long, I believed it was not her idea’s at all but it was her boyfriend’s idea ! For me, eating is just life and there is no way I would reject any offer like this, especially for supper. Our initial plan was to go down to North Bridge Road straight and dine at the coffeeshop, but after overwhelming response at home that everyone wants to have supper, we opted to takeaway and have it at home instead. While …

Jie Bakery and Confectionery – Three Decades of Traditional Bread

Living near the Tai Seng area, I have seen this bakery shop since I was young and after I returned from my Japanese language study in Osaka.  Even thought I was back in Singapore for more than five years, everytime when I drove through Upper Paya Lebar Road, I will take a short glance at the only shop that are still open along the line of shophouses where everyone else were closed. At times, you will see van (we called it bread van or 面包车) stopping along the road and picking up some of the prepared bread for delivery. Last week, my girl friend and I happened to finish work early and while we was traveling along the street, we decided to take a peek at …

Christmas Dinner at Orchid Live Seafood at Jalan Kelulut

Glass door of Orchid Live Seafood were pasted with photos of many celebrities that visited the restaurant. I am trying to catch up with my food blog while right now I am having my staycation with my girl friend at Ritz Carlton for our 2nd year anniversary. Anyway, we visited this restaurant on the Christmas day after a night of great BBQ and gathering with my friends (only few though) on the day before. We were trying to get a simple dinner at Serangoon Gardens but most of the restaurants were closed due to Christmas and Chomp Chomp Hawker just does not appeal to me. Instead we loitered around Serangoon area before reaching Jalan Kelulut for Orchid Live Seafood. I have visited this restaurant about two …

It was my girl friend’s sister whom has just graduated and we did not wait for the buffet at the institute as there was too many people so we decided to shift to Westgate for our lunch.

Special Sushi Birthday Cake at Teru Sushi (Former Akira Japanese Restaurant)

Entrance of Teru Sushi at Link Hotel. It was my best friend’s birthday and we thought of giving him a treat as his birthday present. (Correction: I was too lazy myself to shop for a gift hence giving him a treat is the only way to cover my laziness). We have made reservation for a private room with tatami seats. Of course, if you dislike folding your legs, you can choose for normal tables or sushi counter instead. While the male lead is late for dinner, we ordered some appetisers for our empty stomachs. The Appetisers Pitan Tofu (Homemade Tofu with Pitan Sauce). Sprinkled with chopped spring onions and topped with Ebikko. Price $ 6.00. I first encountered Pitan Tofu in a Japanese restaurant in Robertson …
