Ordered the Braised Pig Trotters (S$4.50) from Hong Ji Claypot Bak Kut Teh for lunch. The coffee shop is always packed with diners eating from this stall especially during lunch time hours so be prepare to wait for your food. You can request for meatier or fattier cuts depending on your preference.

Had an early dinner of hot peppery Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶) at Chong Pang on a rainy afternoon. I took the pork rib while mum went with her favourite pig’s kidney. Ordered an additional dish of pig’s stomach to share.

Dinner settled as we walked around the hawker centre to see what else we could find. Many people were queuing up for Satay and mum wanted it too. Ordered 10 sticks each of pork and mutton satays with two Ketupat (steamed rice). Was told there will be a waiting time of at least 25 minutes. Between the two meats, the mutton had a heavier seasoning and a little sweeter while the pork make do with lighter spices and sugar. Both had nice charred moist morsels of meats and I actually think they were sedap on their own merits. The Peanut Sauce was nice and fragrant to dip the satays with the cubed rice, sliced cucumber and onion.

Was given a movie ticket by my brother and I used the opportunity to go watch Godzilla II: King of the Monsters but rather than getting the expensive popcorn and snacks from the cinema, I went for Arnold’s Fried Chicken. The 2 Piece Meal came with two pieces of specially marinated chicken deep fried till golden brown served with fries and coleslaw. I preferred this over KFC anytime.

After the movie, went next door to LeNu Chef Wai’s Noodle Bar (樂牛私房面家) to cure my hunger. This is the first time I am ordering the Braised Beef Tendon Dry Noodle (红烧牛筋干捞面) for myself. Those crispy ikan bilis (fried anchovies) and peanuts gave the dish a contrasting textures of crunchiness against the springiness of the vermicelli and tendon so that is a plus point.

Dinner yesterday was a simple meal, just Home-Cooked Porridge made from leftover soup stock with cordyceps flower, king oyster mushroom, scallops, minced pork and eggs.

At just S$3 for this Coffee Swiss Roll, this soft and fluffy snack was surprisingly delish. Lessen your sense of guilt when consuming it since it doesn’t overload you with excess whipped cream. Come to think of it, Christmas Log Cakes are just plain old Swiss roll covered in cream or icing with some decorations thrown on top of it but sold at cutthroat prices.

It’s weekend again and mum don’t feel like cooking for dinner so I was tasked to buy some dishes back while she cooked white rice. As usual, mum wanted her Mongolian Chicken but the staff taking the order made an error and gave us Prawn Paste Chicken (虾酱鸡) or Har Cheong Gai instead. This Singaporean fried chicken dish is made with chicken wings in a batter with fermented shrimp paste and is best eaten hot. Of course, the vegetable dish is another of her favourite - Sambal Kangkong (马来风光).

Have you tried BreadTalk’s Momoji (小松欢)? It is a disc-shaped vanilla chiffon sprinkled with the savory pork floss and it comes in three different flavours of pork floss – Original, Spicy and Cereal Chilli. A perfect sweet and savory mid-day treat!

Sis bought home two boxes of Glutinous Rice wrapped in Lotus Leaf (古法糯米鸡) from Tim Ho Wan (添好运). Each box cost S$6.80 which is about three times the selling price of those elsewhere. Digging in, the fragrant sticky rice is packed with pieces of mushroom, sausage and chunks of boneless chicken meat. The rice is a little less sticky than its cheaper cousins and a lot more wet due to the accumulation of sauce at the bottom of the bundle. Overall, the taste is comparable but I won’t want to spend triple the price for it.

Got these Dragon Egg Cakes from the local bakery at the shopping mall. The shop just labelled them as Cheese and Blueberry and they are going at 3 for S$2. I had thought the cake would be filled with blueberry jam but alas, the filling is still cheese with a thin spread of jam at the bottom. Now for the taste test. The sponge cake had a firm texture, presumably so that it can hold the filling inside. Fragrant with an eggy edge but isn’t too saccharine sweet for my palate. The cheese filling is savoury so this suit me to a T. Paired the dainty snacks with BOH Cameronian Gold Blend Tea which my brother got for us from JB since I can’t find it locally.

Famous Taiwanese bubble tea chain Tiger Sugar (老虎堂黑糖專売) opened its flagship outlet at Capitol Piazza late last year and the queue is just crazy. They are quick to strike while the iron is hot, opening a few more outlets including one at Northpoint City. I must admit that I am not a fan of bubble tea due to them loaded with sugars but my sis said the drink is nice except for the long queuing time.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/c995eb4c5314d4f4cc60fce101303370/tumblr_inline_ptnrsnSZAx1vny3ht_1280.jpg

Being a first timer buying from them, I asked the staff to recommend their most popular item and it was this Brown Sugar Boba + Pearls with Cream Mousse (虎虎生風厚鮮奶 | 含奶霜), which contains tapioca pearls (called boba) and small brown sugar pearls. The “tiger” stripes of caramelised syrup on the side of the cup is made with four types of Taiwanese brown sugar held in suspension by the creamy and high fat content Meiji milk. Receiving the beverage from the staff, I was told to shake the cup 15 times to mix the contents before consuming. The sweet caramelized aroma and extra creamy milk alternating with chewy boba and soft pearls dancing and bouncing in my mouth; this you have to experience yourself. A couple of thing I need to point out is you cannot customise the sugar level and the amount of ice cubes in the cup makes it hard to suck out the boba and pearls.

Did you enjoy the aromatic sweet dessert of McDonald’s Purple Sweet Potato Waffle Cone (S$2)? I know I did.

Was recommended One Sushi (一口寿司) by my sis so I thought I did give this place a try. It is located behind Northpoint City at Yishun Town Square. All the yellow plates on the belt cost S$1.00 each if you go at the below timings else it’s S$1.50 per plate.

- Monday to Thursday – 11.30am to 10pm
- Friday to Sunday – 2.30pm to 5.30pm

They were celebrating their one year anniversary and the Mentaiko Fries was just one dollar (Usual S$3.80). You order it via the iPad and the food is delivered via this “sushi car” which travel above the sushi conveyor belt. The car will ask you to press the button on it to return it to the kitchen after you have done collecting the food.

Shako Sushi (Mantis Shrimp) is a rare sight on a budget restaurant menu so I grabbed it. This delicacy appears in late spring or early summer and disappears off the menus after a few short weeks. The texture is meatier than shrimps and more closely resembled lobster.

Ikura Gunkan or battleship sushi with salmon roe is my favourite. The glistening salty roes are packed with omega-3 oils and exploded like fireworks in the cavity of the mouth. Of the 20 plates I eaten that day, about 4 plates are of this variety.

The famous Taiwanese bakery Wu Pao Chun Bakery (吳寶春麥方店) just open for business at Capitol Piazza in Singapore. As expected, foodies thronged the shop snapping up the award-winning handcrafted Lychee Rose Royale (荔枝玫瑰) and Red Wine Longan (酒酿桂圆) breads priced at S$20.80 each. Sis bought the former which was pretty decent in size. Since we don’t own a bread knife, it took me a little while to cut it down to size with a normal knife. The bread is firm and springy but not too tough, with pieces of dried lychee and walnut embedded within. As you chew on it, the smell and taste of lychee get released inside of your mouth. Comes with a Bread Care Guide to help you preserve the good taste for the best enjoyment after paying so much for it.

The mushroom shaped Tom Yummy! (冬炎菇菇) cost S$2.60 apiece. Mildly spicy, the rich, tangy taste of tom yum chicken is “shiok”. Minus point for the stingy use of chicken meat because this mushroom look so empty inside.

Was stuck in a meeting till almost after lunch so I walked out to the hawker centre to cure my hunger. For just S$3.50, this bowl of Pork Ribs Noodle was so good with numerous pieces of tender soft bone pork ribs in a herbal broth.

Received a S$5 discount voucher from my colleague for use at Hot Tomato Café & Grill so I made the trip there for dinner. Flipping through their revamped menu, I picked the Mixed Grill Platter (S$17.90) which comes with Lamb T-Bone, a thick cut of Pork Chop, crispy Chicken Fillet, Chipolata, grilled half tomato accompanied with Chimichurri, Barbecue Sauce and house made Black Pepper Sauce. The dish is still complemented with their signature sides of spaghetti aglio olio, crispy romance lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Together with the Mushroom Soup and Ice Lemon Tea (S$3.70 for both), all this made for a substantial meal.

Ever since I brought her to LeNu Chef Wai’s Noodle Bar (樂牛私房面家) a few months ago, mum had been asking me to bring her there. So I hope I hadn’t bored you with the same kind of food pictures though I do opted for different variations when there are choices like choosing Pickled Vegetable Braised Beef Broth (酸菜牛骨汤) over the Authentic Braised Beef Broth. First up, my Apple Black Tea drink and Chilled Black Fungus with Minced Garlic (清爽黑云耳) add-ons.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/6d1511a7f8a143fab469c4ffd7ecf80d/tumblr_inline_ptwfic9YgW1vny3ht_640.jpg

My bowl of Braised Beef Combination Noodle (红烧牛三宝面) which included Wagyu Beef, Tendon and Shank. The tartness of the pickled cabbage cut through the rich soup, balancing out the saltiness. The meat is melt in the mouth tender and the tendon offered little resistance to the bite.

Mum is a little less adventurous, sticking to her tried and tested Braised Beef Tendon Dry Noodle (红烧牛筋干捞面) with a change of noodle to ramen instead thick vermicelli.

Brother ordered five boxes of Durian from Johor Bahru for us since he knows mum like it. He told us he spent about S$8 per kilogram for the mid-range durian varieties. The durian look wet due to the condensation as they have been vacuum sealed and kept in the fridge for freshness. They were surprisingly very good with many small seeded ones. Taste wise, they ranged from milky sweet to bittersweet and thick creamy flesh.
