Chope had a 1-for-1 deal, and so we ended up here for dinner 🙂
Seated at the counter, we had a great view of the chefs in action. We wanted to try so many things, but our waistlines had been expanding… *ouch*
Anyway, we still ate a lot, haha 😛
- Tuna Tartare ($20++): This was rather addictive, with well balanced flavours and very fresh tuna. The papadum was very crispy and went well with the tuna.
- Soft Shell Crab ($20++): We liked the crunchy batter, but the saltiness overpowered the Thai green curry flavour.
- Assam pork ribs ($22++): The pork ribs were very tender and delicious!
- Tom yum cereal salmon ($22++): Our favourite item, the salmon was oven-baked to perfection, almost melting in our mouths. Gosh.. salivating just thinking about it 😀
- 10° vermicelli ($2++): This was quite refreshing, not bad at all.

After a long day trip of feeding pelicans and watching penguins come home at Phillip Island, we were hunting for a late dinner on our way back to Melbourne CBD, and XY brought us to his favourite Korean restaurant, which he said was cheap and good!
This is a simple restaurant in the neighbourhood of Carnegie 16km south-east of Melbourne CBD, with simple decor but serves up authentic delicious Korean dishes with warm hospitality.
As in the case of traditional Korean restaurants, the appetizers came in generous portions and were yummy too, and refillable! It was also fortunate that we came as a group of 5, for the portions of the main dishes were huge!
The previous fishhead steamboat place had closed down, and a new air-conditioned eatery has spring up last week. This was just next to the famous zhi char, and we were glad that there was a new option! Service was quite good, as all the staff were very friendly, and the food was served very quickly… But we were the only ones eating 😛

We have been wanting to check out Punggol Settlement, but unfortunately, it was really out of the way for someone without a car, and our friends did not really express interest in going 😦 So when Mr L suggested a double date, we readily agreed!
It was… REALLY Far!
The views were also sadly disappointing, partly due to the haze, and partly because the sea view was really, erm, just looking at the construction. Aiyah, I had thought that the views were lovely! Luckily the couple didn’t take my suggestion to have some pre-wedding photo shoot earlier this year.. Haha…
Following our rather successful visits to Canto Paradise, we thought that Paradise Inn deserves a second chance 😛
We ordered a Coffee Pork Ribs 咖啡排骨肉 (OCBC offer 50% off $6.45++), Pork Belly with Tofu in Claypot 回锅肉豆腐 ($12.90++), Water Goby with Fresh Apple Soup 苹果炖生鱼汤 ($19.90++), Australian Lettuce with Fermented Beancurd 腐乳炒油麦菜 ($9.90++), white rice ($1.20++ per bowl), and warm water ($0.30++).
We had wanted to use our voucher for Eat At Taipei and so we met at Raffles City after work today. To our surprise, Eat At Taipei had been replaced by Bangkok Jam! Faintz! The voucher had indicated an outlet here… But I guessed it’s our own fault for not checking out prior to coming down 😦 Oh well, this gave us a chance to check out other places that we have yet to try though 😛
Busy from open to close
It’s an early Sunday and we were due for an Escape Game at Prinsep Street so we came earlier for a dim sum brunch!
Victor’s Kitchen has been in business for a long while and has been on many Must-Eat list also for a long while. It’s tugged in a little corner of Sunshine Plaza, and the stall floor space is not too large either. We counted close to 8 tables arranged in a school tuck shop style and diners are expected to share table (搭檯) like in Hong Kong.
There was already a queue formed when we reached around 10:15am (they open at 10:30am). The auntie let us in 5mins earlier but did not switch on the lights. She also cautioned some diners to lower their volume. Not sure if she broke any ‘rules’ by letting the diners into the stall early.

It’s Christmas Eve and we had lunch with my parents 🙂
Gotta say the ribs were still as good as ever, especially the Dragon Bone or 龙骨! It was not the soft soft nua nua type; rather, it was slightly firm to bite, we loved the texture! The free top-up of soup was also a great plus point! We love the soup here as it was not so overpowering with pepper.
The pig’s trotter was very soft today and the meat was literally falling off the bone, and this was quite different from our previous experience, where the meat was so tough! Dad said that we should request for the fatty type, otherwise, we would be given the lean type and the meat would be very tough. Now we know how to order the next time 🙂
