#HAWKERFARE + The Daily Press

1) I ordered the Mentai maki($5.80) and Mentai salmon don($8.80). They are actually serving restaurant grade food here. I feel like paying such a price for japanese maki and don is completely worth it. First of all, the mentai  maki is served generously with mentaiko sauce then lightly torched before finishing off with fish roe. It is the same for the salmon don. I liked that there isn't much sauce underneath the salmon. I preferred my rice to have minimal sauce.

2) $6.50 army stew from Man's Kitchen & Waker Chicken!! There's instant noodles, sausages, luncheon meat, cabbages, onion, etc inside this small pot of army stew. This comes with 🍚 and kimchi~ omg I love it! The store feels quite authentic to me with real koreans cooking.

#MYEVERYDAYMEAL

1) I think i did not eat roti prata for quite some time. It was not a food item that i was always craving for, and that day i had cravings for roti prata, so i went out and got myself a plain and egg one. It was good and satisfied my tummy. Curry is for dipping~ 

2) It has also been awhile since i made myself some pasta. I remembered my Balsamic Chicken Bowl Recipe and added mushroom instead. I had white button and oyster mushrooms at home. Easy to make and yummy at the same time. 

3) There are a few western food stores that opened near my house these past few months. There's Char Grill Bar (Toa Payoh) that serves affordable and good western food. Their system is similar to Botak Jones or Big Bern's where they let you choose 2 side dishes that comes with the main dish. I ordered chicken chop and my sides were turmeric rice and french fries. The chicken chop was tender and well-seasoned. the sauce complimented the chicken.

The Malayan Council

The 2 storey cafe offers a variety of western malayan food such as pastas, brunch, cakes, drinks, and salads. The cafe is walking distance from rochor mrt and it is along dunlop street. 

King Prawns Aglio Olio. There are 2 king prawns and 3 mussels. The pasta is al dente and cooked with garlic, and argula, drizzled with olive Quite spicy and expensive at $25. Felt that the prices the Malayan council are too pricey. Despite that the pasta was not bad and the prawn were good. But if this is suppose to be like Japanese tendon, I feel that they should fry this longer as when I bite into it I feel like I'm eating shells. 😂 damn crazy. I had to pry open the batter and remove the shells myself.

Ondeh ondeh cake! Loved this! The sponge was so fluffy and the brown bits were so crunchy. Very strong Pandan flavour too. Yum. 👅 oh ya this was complimentary. 😂

KOKI Tamagoyaki Choux Cream Puffs

Made a trip down to Raffles City Shopping center to buy these puffs! The store is located at the basement. Just a small shop selling tamagoyaki and choux puffs. The tamagoyaki bentos are quite pricey, however the puffs are decently priced from $4.30. I ordered the Raspberry & Rose and Earl Grey flavor. Seems like earl grey is the new hipster flavor. Earl grey anything everywhere. The pastry to filling ratio is just awesome! So much cream filling~ Both flavors are subtle and not overly strong.

A Day In my Life~ Bread yard Cafe, Alakai Poke & Nylon Coffee Roasters

Breakfast at Bread yard, lunch at Alakai Poke and coffee at Nylon Coffee Roasters

Went for breakfast at the Bread Yard. I ordered the big boy's breakfast signature. It comes with a super long sausage, back bacon, grilled cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, scrambled eggs, toasts and greens. The scrambled eggs are so creamy and was topped with black pepper~ It is even better than the one i had at ronin. I had a matcha latte to go along with the scrumptious breakfast.

After this i had a nasty ulcer which did not go away even until now. >.< I fucking hate having pain inside my mouth. Aside from that, i went to alakai and tried their Moku Poke plate which comes with 2 scoops of rice topped with some furikake, mashed potato, carrots and salmon which is quite well marinated. You're also allowed to customise your own plate but the guy there recommend i try their poke plate as it was my first visit. :)

Cheat Pikachu Curry Turmeric Rice

So i recently ordered this pikachu 3-piece mould set from Amazon JP. It is so cute~ I made turmeric rice as usual. Turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties so it is perfect for me as people around me has been falling sick. I bought the curry from fairprice and put chicken, white button mushrooms, baby carrots, ham and potatoes. I pour the curry on the plate first then fill up the mould with the rice and place it over the curry. Didn't know how to make pikachu facial features thus i cheat a bit and use an iphone app. :X Good idea to spice up my everyday meal with one of my favorite cartoon character. :)

Making Simple meals at home

Simple meals can be made easily at home with very simple ingredients.

1) Made myself breakfast! Everything was cooked with butter. Baby corn, shiitake mushrooms, baby carrots, ham and cheese sausages. 

2) I bought the nabe soup stock from Daiso and decided to make hokkien noodle soup with it. I added oyster mushroom, shiitake mushroom, broccoli, scallops, chicken fillet, and baby carrots. 

3) Utilized last bits of lobster broth to make yet another udon soup. I loved it so much~ i bought another can of that. The chicken was cooked with balsamic vinegar. I loved that sour taste very much. You can get the lobster broth here link

Mcdonald Singapore Nasi Lemak Burger Taste Test

Alot of hype about this Nasi Lemak Burger. McDonald launched this on 13 July 2017 in conjunction with Singapore Food Festival. It is also very 'local' as Nasi Lemak is a local delicacy in Singapore. I ordered the Nasi Lemak Burger, Coconut pie, Bandung Mcfizz and Criss Cut Fries. 

The burger consists of caramelized onions, fried egg, crispy chicken thigh patty and cucumber. The sambal chili was more sweet than spicy. The patty was coated with cornflakes but it is the cucumber that provided that extra crunch. The whole packaging was nice. The burger was poorly wrapped though. Not surprising from McDonald. I really liked the coconut pie! The filling was creamy and full of coconut and nata de coco bits. The bandung mcfizz was also not bad. I think everyone should give this a try!

Thai Food at Braddell - Wang Thai Kitchen

I ordered tofu with assorted mushrooms, olive fried rice, green curry with chicken, pandan leaf chicken, pineapple fried rice, and plain rice. Can't get enough of thai food. lol 

The tofu is like those you can get at any Tze Cha store. nothing special. However, their olive fried rice was not too bad. It looks quite authentic, but i would prefer they not fry the chicken? Green curry was abit watery and underwhelming. It's spicy though. Pandan chicken had Very faint hint of Pandan smell and taste. Other than that the chicken was good. I don't think it is worth another visit as their food is quite average and not very authentic in serving thai food.

Thai Food at Toa Payoh - Thailily Restaurant

Idk about you but i always order green curry whenever i eat at a Thai restaurant or store. ThaiLily Restaurant is located just opposite Braddell Mrt station. The green curry as you can see is so thick and spicy. I love it~ I usually order mine with chicken. It also comes with other vegetables too. 

I also went on separate occasions to have dinner where i order the olive fried rice and green curry fried rice. It is convenient for me as i always take a bus near there to go home. If the green curry is good, what can you expect from the Green curry fried rice?! It is so spicy and tasty too. Authentic olive fried rice uses black olives as the main ingredient and thus you get the kind of blackish color to the rice? Not sure if its the olives or sauce? Anyways it was also good! The presentation kinds of reminds me of mickey mouse though. haha.

Simple Meals at Home

I wanted to up my protein intake so i bought 2 packets of chicken fillet from Fair price. 

1) Udon in lobster broth with 7-11 Onsen eggs, chicken fillet in teriyaki sauce, oyster mushroom. baby corn and broccoli. 

2) Turmeric Rice with tomatoes, chicken fillet in teriyaki sauce, baby carrots, enoki mushroom and broccoli. I added red pepper powder, tomatoes, cinnamon, and cumin to the rice, thus the rice was slightly flavorful now. Still dk how to make authentic briyani rice. lol
