Have you tried the new Gardenia Cheese Bread Stix? They comes in two irresistible flavours - Classic Cheese and Pizza. The Classic Cheese flavour is topped with shredded cheese and herbs, while the Pizza flavour is a combination of tomato paste and shredded cheese. Just S$1.30 for each of these savoury buns.

LeNu Chef Wai’s Noodle Bar (樂牛私房面家) at Northpoint City sells Taiwanese style beef noodles though they have recently also introduced chicken and seafood in addition to a variety of side dishes. I have walked by the unit many times but never seem to find time to eat there until now. Bought mum along for the tasting since she like beef noodles.

Flipped through the menu and decided on the Braised Beef Combination Noodle (红烧牛三宝面) that comes with Wagyu Beef, Tendon and Shank. You get to choose from one of the three choices of noodle – Thick Vermicelli, La Mian or Rice Noodle. I picked La Mian noodle for my carbohydrate. My bowl of beef noodles came with slices of fatty beef and tendon in a brown broth that takes more than 12 hours of simmering. The beef was oh so tender and the broth packed a depth of umami flavours if not a little on the salty side. And not forgetting the noodle, which was cooked al dente, had a nice firm chewy bite.

Mum went with her Braised Beef Tendon Dry Noodle (红烧牛筋干捞面), opting for the thick vermicelli. It came topped with an assortments of salted vegetable, beansprouts, crispy peanuts & anchovies, spring onion and garnished with bonito flakes.

Sis joined us much later and since she don’t take beef, she went ahead and ordered the Braised Pork Rib with Scallion Dry Noodle (葱烤猪软骨拌面). For S$3 extra, you get to choose a side dish and a drink. We picked the Chilled Silken Tofu with Century Egg (皮蛋豆腐) and I chose the Apple Black Tea drink.

These purple skin Japanese variety sweet potatoes are such a sweet nutritious snack whether you steam/bake the tuber whole or cubed in dessert like this Sweet Potato Soup. They are also a rich source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

When I am craving for something sweet and cold, I know I can turn to this Red Tea Longan dessert. Must be the subtle fragrant of tea jelly that lure me to it plus it is not cloyingly sweet like other Asian desserts.

For dinner, I had the Grilled Chicken with Brown Sauce and two sides of Garden Veggies and Mashed Potato. Love that the chicken had a nice smoky aroma and grilled flavours.

Tried the Salt Baked Chicken and Rice Set (S$6.90) at the recommendation of my colleague. The chicken is melt in your mouth tender and flavourful though I would suggest to dip it in the accompanying herb and chilli sauce for that little bit of fiery kick.

Need to cut down on the intake of animal proteins so here is my Vegetarian Bee Hoon. Some of the plant-based proteins you see here are imitation squid, curry mutton etc…

Told mum to buy me Roast Duck Drumstick Rice as I haven’t eaten it for a period of time and she packed a box back from her daily marketing trip. The glossy reddish-brown skin of the drumstick beckoned me to quickly take a bite. Roast pork still had that layer of crispy skin which is a sign of a good roast.

After tasting her first Taiwanese style braised beef noodle a fortnight ago, mum fell in love with it and wanted to go back for more. So here we are at LeNu Chef Wai’s Noodle Bar (樂牛私房面家) Northpoint City branch for lunch. And to sweeten the deal, they are having weekday promotion of 50% off second bowl of noodle or porridge. Mum went for her tried and tested Braised Beef Tendon Dry Noodle (红烧牛筋干捞面) with the S$3 top up of Taiwan Soya Bean Milk and Seasoned Bamboo Shoot (味付笋片).

Instead of beef, I selected the Braised Pork Rib with Scallion Noodle (葱烧猪软骨煨面) plus warm Braised Beancurd in Beef Broth (牛汁卤豆干) and Apple Black Tea drink. The pork-based soup was mellow from the long hours of simmering and the chilli gave it an added spiciness to boot. The pork rib was stewed to a melt in the mouth texture but the soft bones remained too hard to be eaten.

Well, they say chocolates make you happy but sugar-laden chocolates aren’t good for our bodies. Came across this no sugar added and low GI Sincero Premium Chocolate from the Hosen Group that also gave us those canned fruits in syrup. Each box consisted of 12 chocolate squares of which half are the dark (70%) variety and the other half milk (36%) squares. These guilt-free chocolates tasted exactly like the normal sugar added cousins because they are sweetened with stevia and maltitol but with much lower calories while keeping blood sugar level in control.

Doraemon loves Dorayaki, so do I. A Japanese confection consisting of two small pancake-like patties made from castella wrapped around a sweet filling of azuki bean paste.

Chwee Kueh (水粿) is a type of steamed rice cake, a Teochew cuisine of China that has become popular in Singapore and Malaysia. To make chwee kueh, rice flour and water are mixed together to form a slightly viscous mixture. They are then placed in small cup-shaped containers that look like saucers and steamed, forming a characteristic bowl-like shape when cooked. The rice cakes are topped with diced preserved radish and served with chilli sauce. Chwee kueh is a popular breakfast item in both Singapore and Johor.

My Japanese boss came back from Japan and gave us these Taiyaki (鯛焼き). The fish-shaped pancake imitates the shape of the Tai (Japanese red seabream), which it is named after. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans.

Mum had been asking for Durians but it’s only the start of the season and the price is frankly quite dear. Next month more stocks are coming in so the price will drop further but in the meantime, sis got her some to quell her craving. Those on the left are sweet and milky while the right ones had hint of bitterness in them which are appreciated by some.

Nasi Lemak is a Malay fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf. Traditionally, nasi lemak is served with a hot spicy sauce (sambal), and usually includes various garnishes, including fresh cucumber slices, small fried anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts, and hard-boiled or fried egg. For a more substantial meal, nasi lemak may also be served with an additional protein dish such as ayam goreng (fried chicken), sambal sotong (cuttlefish in chilli) or fried ikan kuning (fried yellow-banded scads) etc…
