McDonald’s new soft serve Bandung Cone is a twist of the popular drink served across Southeast Asia. The drink is made of evaporated milk or condensed milk flavoured with rose cordial syrup, giving it a pink hue.

It’s been awhile since I last visited Han’s Cafe & Cake House. Their Pandan Kaya Cake with layers of pandan flavored sponges and silky pandan egg custard bring back memories of the good olden days when we don’t have that many distractions to indulge in. If you enjoy chocolate, you will love this Chocolate Mint Square with its moist sponge layers and minty fresh cream in-between.

Having seen the beautiful cake pictures of Baker’s Brew, I went ahead to purchase three pieces to try. My first impression for a S$7.50 a slice cake; they are so thinly portioned as if they are afraid you might put on too much weight after consuming it. Ondeh Ondeh had a nice blend of gula melaka and coconut taste. The finely grated palm sugar and desiccated coconut giving it a slight crunch and texture. Not too bad.

However, I can’t really recommend the Lychee Mango and the Strawberry Speculoos as it doesn’t stand out in any way. Although the Ondeh Ondeh cake was nice, the small slice coupled with reasonably high price just killed my appetite for more of it.

Boarded the free shuttle bus to Sembawang Shopping Centre for some grocery shopping and dinner. We usually go to Astons Specialities for an early dinner before proceeding to Giant Hypermarket. Mum stuck to her Crispy Fried Fish with the Potato Wedges and Tasty Rice.

I went for Double Up Chicken, choosing Crispy Fried Chicken and Fiery Chicken along with Garden Veggie and Potato Wedges for the sides.

I love my cereal prawns so when KFC Cereal Chicken was launched, I just got to go and try it. Basically, it is Hot & Crispy chicken coated with seasoning and topped with savoury sweet Nestlé Nestum cereal, fried crispy with butter, curry leaves and chilli. Must be finger lickin’ good enough because I read that it even got reviewer in the USA writing about it.

Dropped by this popular dessert stall in Yishun Central on our way to dinner. Mum had her bowl of hot Red Bean Soup while I opted for something cold. My Red Bean Nata de Coco comes drizzled with evaporated milk and gula melaka (palm sugar syrup) on a bed of shaved ice.

Gyoza-Ya (餃子屋) is a casual Japanese dining restaurant that specialized in Japanese dumplings. My colleague recommended this place to me for their super tender pork. So I brought along mum to get her to try out new dishes beside her favourite beef noodle. Flipping through the menu on the tablet, she chose the Kakuni Tonkatsu Donburi (S$18.80) which comes with a large piece of crispy pork cutlet, two pieces of pork belly and stewed carrot on a bowl of rice. It is accompanied with three gyoza, free flow Japanese salad and a soup.

As for me, I picked the Gyu Kakuni Donburi (S$20.80) which has thin stir-fried slices of beef, two pieces of pork belly and stewed carrot on a bed of rice. The beef was seasoned well without being overcooked. The highlight was the tender pork belly which disintegrated in your mouth with barely any chewing at all. The gyoza was a moist and flavourful addition to the already great meal.

Going to Chinatown, one got to visit Tian Jin Fong Kee (天津冯记) at People’s Park Complex Food Centre to try their Pan Fried Dumplings (锅贴) or Potstickers. Equally delicious is their juicy Steamed Pork and Chive Dumplings (蒸饺子).

These tau sar piahs or the English way of calling them - puffs, are from Hanis Café & Bakery, the halal sister company of Han’s Café & Cake House. Both the Sweet Green Bean Puffs (S$1.20 each) and the Yam Puffs (S$1.40 each) tasted just as good as the Chinese counterpart though these doesn’t incorporated pork lard in their recipes. They are also not sickening sweet as some Malays desserts tended to be.

Sis and her friend bought these Durians from Balestier/Whampoa. The first batch cost S$10 per durian and you get one free for every 5 durians bought. Comes in five boxes but sister’s friend took two boxes away.

Next day, sis bought another two boxes of Durians at S$20 because the S$10 one was sold out. Not as good as the first batch but still decent enough for us, especially mum.

It’s weekend again so we are off hunting for some new place to try the food. Came to this Sembawang Traditional Claypot Rice (三巴旺原味沙煲饭) which is located just a stone’s throw away from the famous Sembawang White Bee Hoon on opposite end of the block. The shop offers local zi char dishes and claypot rice in a non-air conditioned coffeeshop which can be quite a warm environment to dine in so we started off with two cold Barley Drinks.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/460af99826eaf04cda9683e467699437/eb8b68fa56670ab0-7a/s1280x1920/be1494bd27b4b0f62c16a27ec63649106bbcff22.jpg

https://66.media.tumblr.com/3a8ad7cbd0e9cb4d99e904449fa188bf/eb8b68fa56670ab0-17/s640x960/2a80fe1eb6fed05cdc9a9f5d38fbd080149a0a77.jpg

Ordered the medium portion of their signature Traditional Claypot Rice (S$13.80), good enough for two persons. Was told the cooking time would be around 25 minutes since it only cook on order. The rice came sizzling hot from the stove with chunks of chicken, slices of lap cheong (Chinese sausage) and vegetables. Drizzled the thick black sauce then gave the rice a thorough mix. The rice was smoky and fragrant but a little light on the seasonings. The burst of saltiness from the bits of salted fish in every mouthful and the tender chicken pieces made up for the blandness.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/285c911731bd36ecbf8db1f221f1c024/eb8b68fa56670ab0-5e/s1280x1920/fb84882b06ea7a5d8ecfce1e6688d23e77d475dc.jpg

It could have been a wonderful dish but the Crispy Salted Egg Squid (S$12.80) spent a little too long in the wok so the texture was rubbery at best. The saving grace was that the chef is not stingy with the salted egg yolk and the sauce had the right balance of the characteristic saltiness with a hint of sweetness to it.

Molten Chocolate Bun from the local bakery. Maybe because I ate this bun at room temperature, the molten chocolate sauce is not as oozing as I thought it would be. Nonetheless, it was still a pretty decent snack.

McDonald’s just launched the green tea line of soft serve ice creams. Got myself a Matcha Cone which had gone up by S$0.10 to S$1.10. Not sure if it’s just for this flavour or the price increase is permanent. The green tea taste is there but it’s not as strong I want it to be. Next flavour, please.

Since we only had 45 minutes for lunch, I typically had it in the office’s canteen. This Nasi Lemak came with fried chicken thigh, egg, anchovies (ikan bilis) and roasted peanuts. Of course the spicy sweet sambal sauce is a must to go along.

Laksa is a spicy noodle soup popular in Peranakan cuisine of Southeast Asia. Laksa consists of thick wheat noodles or rice vermicelli with chicken, prawn or fish, served in spicy soup based on either rich and spicy curry coconut milk or on sour asam (tamarind or gelugur). The typical Singapore Laksa comes with tau pok (dried beancurd puff), fishcake and blood cockles topped with finely chopped laksa leaves (Persicaria odorata).

When I don’t know what to eat for dinner, sushi is the way to go. Picked up this Classic Salmon Set (S$5.50) with salmon & onion mayo, salmon roe, salmon belly and the classic salmon sushi.
