Tomyum Mama @Upper Thomson

2017-02-03 16.03.30
Thai In Town re-opened as Tomyum Mama, and we decided to give it a go~

  • Deep Fried Sea Bass with Fish Sauce and Mango Salad ($24.90 nett): Our favourite dish, the fish was deep fried till really crispy, and the meat was tender. The mango salad by the side gave a refreshing lift to the dish.
  • Thai Wanton Mee ($5.90): This was not bad, with generous amount of ingredients, given the price.
  • Pandan Chicken ($4.90 for 2 pieces): Ah, the sad and dry tiny little chicken chucks. Enough said. =X
  • Homemade Meat Balls ($4.90 for 8 pieces): This was surprisingly addictive despite looking rather dry on the outside. The meat balls actually had some juice in them! Do note that there was prawn in the minced meat mixture.
  • Baby Kai Lan with Mushrooms ($7.90): This was a rather salty plate of vegetables.

Drinks-wise, we tried the Thai Iced Milk Tea ($2.90), and the Thai Iced Lemongrass ($2.90), which we thought were not bad, but a little on the sweet side.

Short trip to 愉景灣 Discovery Bay, Hong Kong

2016-12-11 17.57.16We had read about the Discovery Bay Christmas Market, and decided that it was worth our time to travel to Discovery Bay.

With the Discovery Bay Christmas Market on-going, plus the free ferry ride back to Central offer, we figured that we gotta make reservations for dining at D’Deck in Discovery Bay.

Among all the restaurants, Koh Tomyums appeared to be highly recommended. Our hotel helped us made the reservations 😀

Having being side-tracked with snacks and some Pokémon-catching, we ended up reaching Discovery Bay rather late, but managed to browse through most of the shops at the Christmas Market. There was not enough time before sunset to do any of the hiking trails, so we decided to go to the restaurant earlier.

BangPop @South Wharf, Melbourne

wp-image-780699807jpg.jpgThis was a rather atas-looking Thai restaurant, with ATMs located within the restaurant 😮 But we wanted to grab dinner fast, before walking over to Docklands for a good spot to watch fireworks display, so we decided to just head into it.

Teng Bespoke Japanese Vegetarian Dining @Sunshine Plaza

We were intending to go check out Clinton Street Bakery, but passed by Sunshine Plaza and decided to pop in to see if Victor’s Kitchen was available. Oh well, the queue was very long!

We then recalled seeing a Japanese vegetarian restaurant, that we also wanted to try out. The restaurant was split into 2 sides, and has apparently expanded beyond this, as one of staff guided the customers to somewhere out there to their tables 😮 So popular! We were lucky to secure a table as some customers were leaving. We decided to try some of the ala carte items:

Canto Paradise 樂天小香港 @AMKHub (again)

We were back again because of the Groupon offer, and so was the rest of the world 😛

Luckily we were there around 7pm, so it was a short 10 minutes wait. The queue just kept growing after that. This time, we tried the following:

Hiang Ji Roasted Meat & Noodle House 享記燒臘麵家 @Toa Payoh

Claypot Rice

Claypot Rice

We were roaming around trying to find dinner at Toa Payoh Central, when we peeped through a corridor and there appeared to be a stretch of stalls hidden inside, so we thought that we should check it out!

The Chinatown Claypot Rice next to Hiang Ji was the most crowded, and there were some super powerful fans blasting at the tables, and thus our dinner was decided!

We ordered a Claypot Rice ($6), a platter of Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork and Char Siew ($14), and a plate of Kailan ($4) for a balanced meal 😛

A balanced meal

A balanced meal

The platter was the first to arrive, and we were most impressed by the char siew! It had a good combination of slightly charred meat and fats, and each piece was melting in our mouths… It was divine! The roasted pork was full of crackling crispiness but a bit too fat for my liking, and the roasted duck was just average.

The Kailan was quite oily, and came with lots if deep fried lard 😮 Not very healthy I guess.

We were told that we would need to wait for about 20 minutes for the claypot rice, and it was indeed worth the wait! The salty smell from the salted fish and Chinese sausage made our mouths water; coupled with the crispy rice stuck to the claypot (锅巴), and the amount of oil and dark soy sauce at your own control, the claypot rice was really very delicious! The chicken pieces were quite tender as well, and there were salted egg pieces, which complemented the rice very well! This was such an unexpected find!

The only down side was that they had ran out of bottled water, so we were really quite thirsty after the meal… Which gave us an excuse to look for a cafe…

Note that wet tissue is $0.30 per piece.

Four Seasons Restaurant 文興酒家 @Chinatown London

Preparing for the rush of customers

Preparing for the rush of customers

We met up with Lao Ban Niang again and this time, she was granted permission to come out for lunch!

She wanted to try this new branch of Four Seasons Restaurant, so we met at Chinatown for an early lunch. However, we discovered that all the Chinese restaurants in this area only open after 12noon, so we ended up shopping at the nearby Chinese supermarket instead. We all paused in surprise in the supermarket when we heard traffic announcement over the radio station informing all shoppers of traffic jam at Upper Thomson… Singapore Y.E.S. 933 station, haha!

Hai Zhong Bao (海中寶) Live Seafood @AMK

Daddy read about this zichar stall in the newspapers and thought the food looked pretty good! Some of his friends also said that the food was not bad, so off we went to try!

Located just a few blocks opposite Ang Mo Kio MRT Station and the Town Garden, Hai Zhong Bao Live Seafood occupies the corner stall of this kopitiam at the void deck of Blk 422. Like many kopitiams in Singapore, the environment is homely, lively and a little noisy at times, especially when a soccer match is going on. 🙂
