Centre Satay Bee Hoon (AMK Food Centre)

Centre Satay Bee Hoon
Blk 724 Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 Food Centre #01-12

This is one of my favourite satay bee hoon ($3), which I have been eating for the past 20+ years. The stall has been operating at this AMK Food Centre since the 1980s.
What I like about this satay bee hoon:
1) The fine and smooth bee hoon texture
2) The peanut gravy that isn't too dilute or too dry
3) Fresh ingredients esp the prawn and lean meat
Best of all, the quality has remained the same even after so many years.

Mad Jack (Paradiz Centre)

1 Selegie Road
Paradiz Centre #01 – 04
Tel: 6338 9771 / 6257 5951
11.30am – 12 midnight daily

A cafe offering rather affordable western food, attracting mostly teenagers and young adults. The menu has a wide range of selection from fish & chips, steak, burger, pasta, pizza, asian food, finger food, cakes, desserts etc.

Placing order is simple and hassle free, simply write down the item number on the order forms placed on each table, and make payment at the counter. However, the food did take quite a while to be served - at least 20 mins?

Here's what I had - Grilled Fish in Honey Lemon Sauce served with mashed potato and apple & peach salad. The fish was quite fresh and portion size is reasonable for the price of $8.90. My only complain is that the fish was a little too thinly slice that the texture became a little dry & tough. The apple & peach salad is a refreshing combination with the grilled fish.

My drink - Complexion Enhancer ($4)- from the range of Doctor Juices made from fresh fruits with no sugar added. The drink contains guava, orange and cucumber. Well, how did it taste? Hmm... what would you expect from such a combination?? It has a "freshy" taste in its natural sweetness, prob from the orange.

With such a great selection, I would be interested to be back to try different food from the menu.

Haato (Ridgewood Close)

Am once again back at Haato for lunch after a long while... ordered the Chicken Katsu Don and it was really really delicious. Love the round, fat Japanese rice cooked with soy sauce, topped with a thick piece of deep fried cutlet and covered with a layer of egg. It was just too good for a $7.50 meal. I had a very satisfying lunch.

Check out our earlier postings on Haato here, here and here.

TCC - Coffee Connoisseur

Enjoy a cuppa on a lazy afternoon at TCC....
Had the Matcha Kiss - a green tea drink with soy milk. Something unique but not quite to my liking though.

Add a slice of super rich chocolatey cake - Devil's choco cake.

Franky's Pocha [Closed]

Went back to Franky's Kaffe again...3rd time within a month. But this time round, it is for a proper Korean dinner.

Although only 3 side dishes were served, these side dishes were really yummy. We had a round of refill. Loved the kimchi, which has the right crunchiness and sourless which was just right for my liking.

The 3 of us shared the Kimchi Stew ($25). We had a choice of adding pork or tuna into the stew and we chose pork. The ingredients in the stew included kimchi (of course), pork (of course) enoki mushroom, tofu, chilli, chilli padi, onion etc.

The stew took a while to cook and for the kimchi soup to become flavourful.... It was a little bland and we almost wanted to add the kimchi side dish into the stew. We had a refill of the soup and the soup finally tasted good towards the end.

The seafood pancake ($18) was quite disappointing. Firstly, we waited too long for it and it was finally served when we already finished half of the stew. Disappointingly, the pancake dough was not completely dry and crispy and the pajeon taste was absent.

Do note that rice ($2) had to be ordered separately from the ala carte dishes. Do also note that they will also take a while to "cook" the rice! We waited for probably 10 to 15 mins....

Despite the long wait and disappointment, I think I will still be back to try other dishes =)
The "Coffee Prince atmosphere" does create some disillusion that you're in Korea... except for the warm weather.

Tampopo Restaurant

My second visit to Tampopo and still not impressed by the food. Tried the black pig cutlet the first time round and the black pig shabu raman this time.

Service was efficient, the ramen was served within 10mins after we had placed the order. However, it was disappointing as the soup was not piping hot as I had expected. Some say, blame it on the aircon which was going at full blast. I wonder if the aircon was also going at full-blast in the kitchen as well?!

The only saving grace was the thin kyushu ramen which was springy and plain delicious. The ramen was supposed to be spicy but I thought it was less "potent" than expected.

Tip : Making reservation is a MUST to avoid long wait.
