REVIEW: Guide to Cafes in Everton Park

1) The Provision Shop

Address: Block 3 Everton Park #01-79
Opening hours: Mon to Sat: 11.30am – 9pm
Sun: 9am – 6pm



Our first stop is at The provision shop! Provision shop means 杂货店 in Chinese.
I order a cup of latte and i like it. It is not bitter and overly strong in taste.
I wanted to have a main dish first before i explore the coffee shops around the area so I ordered Their traditional carbonara pasta. It is written on their menu that their pasta is in-house made.
I feel that the overall dish is too dry and they should be more generous with their sauce.
The additional of raw egg into the dish made the pasta taste weird.
I should try their egg benedict next time!
It gets fairly crowded during noon time.










2) Nylon coffee Roasters

Address: 4 Everton Park #01-40
Opening hours: Mon to Fri: 8.30am – 5.30pm
Sat & Sun: 9am – 6pm

I read somewhere that they have only 3 seats in the whole shop. True enough.. there is a long table with NO SEATS and at the side there are 3 chairs with 1 small table in between. I think the place is meant for people to grab a quick coffee and rush off somewhere. As you can see, the cup is quite small. There are also different sizes of cup you can choose from.

Coffee is no doubt one of the best i had that day.



3) Cozy Corner Coffee

Address: Block 4 Everton Park #01-50
Opening hours: 8.30am – 7.30pm


This place is surprisingly empty!! They have power sockets and free wifi which makes it good for students/adults to work or chill with their friends. I feel like the whole place had minimum lighting. Will be better if it is brighter. It makes the whole place much more livelier.






4) Just Want Coffee

Address: #01-27 1 Everton Park
Opening Hours:Mon to Thu: 8.30am – 6.30pm
Fri & Sat: 9am – 8.30pm



Last stop is Just want Coffee! I read that this shop originated from Malaysia and this shop is their first shop in Singapore. How cool is that?!

I ate their carrot cake. It is moist and yummy! The cake is kind of big in size too so its worth the money. I did not like the ice brew coffee though. Too bitter for my liking.

There is something unique about that coffee though. The glass that you drink from is designed in such a way that the bottom is pointy so you can spin the glass. Not sure if it is to allow you to spin when you are mixing the coffee? You can add whichever amount of coffee, ice, milk and sugar you want to suit your own taste.

REVIEW: Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen

Was researching on ramen near my area which is central area. Randomly saw this ramen place in novena which is .. um near my place and there is something unique about their ramen too! Not only do they serve normal ramens in bowls, they have special ones in CLAYPOT. Yes, CLAYPOT. 

Address: #02-68/69, Square 2, 10 Sinaran Drive
Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm Daily
It is easy to locate the place. It is just by the escalator at the second floor.



Menu! 


The soup! 


They serve you the claypot with the noodles and ingredients. The claypot is hot! The waitress will then bring you this cone shape thingy, then pour the soup inside and cover it! You can see the smoke rising and exiting from the cone! I have never seen anything like this before! LOL 



After awhile she comes and take the cone away and asks me to stir whats in the claypot. I just stare at the hot claypot, dumbfounded. As you can see there are hot bubbles everywhere and it is boiling! Does it look like a volcano to you? 

Their noodles are slightly thicker than the normal thin ones. Think hokkien mee? 

The shoyu one really kind of resembles a piping hot claypot of hokkien mee, right? Noodles are good and chewy. The charsiew is kind of average and needs improvement. There are alot of cabbage and bean sprouts in it. I especially love the thick shoyu soup broth! It is not too salty and is so yummy! 

The waitress will walk around and when she sees you have finish the ramen she will offer you steamed rice so as not to waste the soup. Awesome, right!! This is my first time so full from eating ramen.

REVIEW: Tian kee and co

I feel obligated to write this for the longest time ever since i visited this cafe. It is so overrated.

Address: #01-48, 48 Dakota Crescent
OPENING HOURS: 8am - 9pm


You can either walk from Mountbatten or Dakota Mrt depending on your preference. 

1) No air-conditioning. Anything that you order that requires refrigerating melts so fast! Better to order main dish and ask them to serve desert after. Also suggestion to have a few people share their specialty rainbow cheese cake. :P

It may looks awesome on camera but it is just a normal above average cake.



2) This is their special tian kee egg royale. Their egg ben is overrated too!! As you can see, they are pretty generous with the sauce. Salmon hides underneath the egg. Best to stay there because they are salty. 


3) Mocha. It seems like they may have been generous in the amount of chocolate they put in this drink. Just look at that color!

REVIEW: Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh (宏记砂锅肉骨茶)

As I work nearby Woodlands, whenever there's a school holiday my colleagues will drive us out for a scrumptious lunch! They brought me to this famous bak kut teh store and they claimed that this is good! I had to try it out for myself. It was very crowded when we arrived as it is lunch hour! Lots of OM and OL from nearby flocked to try this.

I love noodles so i ordered the bak kut teh with noodles! As you can see, its filled to the brim! The soup is of a rich herbal taste and is so flavorful! There's alot of meat too! Usually i will finish up the noodles, and there's still meat left. And best of all the auntie at the store will refill the soup for you if you request for it. How generous. :)

This is a must try if you're at woodlands!

Address: #01-329, 19 Marsiling Lane
Opening hours: 8am - 9.45pm

REVIEW: Pecori Japanese Egg Restaurant

Address: Liang Court Shopping Centre, 177 River Valley Road
Opening hours: 11am - 10pm

This restaurant always have awesome deals online. What i am having here is the bacon and egg in tomato sauce omu rice with breaded fish! The egg is soft and moist coupled with delicious tomato sauce. Breaded fish is fried to crispy goodness and they have 2 huge ones here. This deal comes with free flow salad and soup as well. Haven't had a chance to go back to try out other dishes. 

Update:
So I went back again to try the Mentaiko Cream Omu Rice!! The mentaiko cream is so yummy! The texture is so creamy! It is simply ogasmic when you mix it with the rice and egg.

REVIEW: Sanpoutei Ramen at Holland Village

My friend went to sanpoutei ramen and had raving reviews about this place! So i went with my friend again to try this! They have 2 outlets in Singapore.

Address: Holland Village

253 Holland Ave #01-01 Singapore 278982


Opening hours: 11.30am – 11pm

I tried their dipping noodles and it was awesome! It is one of the best dipping noodles i have tried in Singapore. I think i ever tried dipping noodles at Ramen Champion but that was only average. Japanese calls this Tsukemen.

You can also check out my reviews for the ramens i have tried in Tokyo here:

http://nickeatfood.blogspot.sg/2015/01/review-ramen-in-tokyo-japan.html

I went on a Saturday afternoon. Shop was relatively quiet and there was no queue when i reached. Okay i read that Sanpoutei Ramen serves ramen with broth that is boiled for six hours using vegetables, chicken, pork bone and dried sardine all imported from Japan. Their ramen noodles are also hand made! 

So  as i said, i ate the dipping noodles. Dipping noodles comes like this. The noodles and soup broth are separated. You're suppose to dip the noodles in the soup. 

The noodles here and just right. Not hard and soft. Definitely on par with Japanese standards and quality is awesome! Soup was rich and flavorful! I will definitely go back again.

REVIEW: Dolce Tokyo

I have been to DOLCE TOKYO a couple times. Their all-day breakfast do not disappoint even though their service are not high standard. Their egg Benedict recipe is quite standard. They serve their egg bens on a wooden pan and their cakes in a cage. So unique yah? 

Address: #03-41, 313@Somerset, 313 Orchard Road

Here's their Smoked Salmon Ben. Generous portion of smoked salmon on top of nicely shaped eggs with cheese and bread underneath. Their side dishes consist of  grilled tomatoes, salad and a small bowl of baked beans. 


Benny Pancake.
The pancakes are overshined by the eggs. I feel like i am eating the eggs, ham, cheese and pancakes separately. Just like clothes, the whole dish must be able to blend together to create something special. This is not it. 



Classic Egg ben! 

Now this is slightly better than the Benny pancake. 

Mushroom Indulgence. 

Perfectly sauteed mushrooms with perfect eggs with cheese and bread. This is a must try. 



Green Tea with Goma Sesame Cake

Those green stuffs on top feels artificial. Didn't like the sesame fillings in between as well.


Red velvet cake. 

Didnt taste as good as it looks. 

Dolce tokyo may provide some of the best egg bens around but their dishes are superbly over priced especially their cakes.

REVIEW: Chye Seng Huat Hardware

So awhile ago me and my friend went to Chye Seng Huat Hardware. It is an old hard ware store converted into a cafe. They also have a workshop/shop at the second floor that sells handmade stuffs. They are super famous so be sure to come early or avoid lunch hours as it is crowded. We sat at the counter seats.

Address: 150 Tyrwhitt Road
Opening hours: Tue to Thu: 9am – 7pm 
                            Fri to Sun: 9am – 10pm

A picture of the barista making the coffee. 


I ordered one of this special cold brew! The barista says we can't take the bottle home. LOL. It is so unique. Never seen any cafes serve coffee like this before. Taste wise.. it is very subjective. I find it.. COLD and bitter. Definitely won't order this again!


This is quite unique too! Their egg benedict recipe is different from other shops. Cafes usually serve their eggs with hollandaise sauce but their Poached eggs comes with pork bolognese sauce on top! The sauce gave the dish an unique edge. It is new, refreshing and yummy!

I only write about things I think is nice or sometimes maybe not so nice but can give it a try. lol

REVIEW: RAMEN SANTOUKA AT CENTRAL

I am ONLY here for the pork cheeks! 

Okay I have been to ramen santouka a couple of times and they do NOT disappoint! They are definitely one of the best ramen stores in Singapore but Okay just one time during my last visit, i find their pork cheek a tad salty. They are still the yummy pork cheek that melts in the mouth! super yummy! Here's how you eat this, you just dump whatever that is in the plate into the soup with noodles. Noodles and soup was yummy too. I am not sure about other outlets though.. only been to the one at the central. Not sure if they're consistent compared to other store. :)

Address: #02-76, Central, 6 Eu Tong Sen Street

REVIEW: Lai Heng Mushroom Minced Meat Mee

As I live nearby, I often go to my favorite store for some local delicious bak chor mee! They used to jot down their orders but now they give out numbers! haha talk about being high tech!

Address: #01-62, Nghee Huat Eating House, 51 Toa Payoh Lorong 6

The noodles are springy! The toppings are pork liver, mushrooms, minced meat, bean sprouts and pork lard! The soup is tasty and flavorful too! I am having kway teow and yellow noodles in the below picture. This is probably one of the most tasty bak chor mee i have ever tasted. 

Average waiting time for this shop is around 20mins to 40 mins! I always go after 2 to avoid the insane crowd! They have since implemented a queue system where everyone is assigned a number!
