9Goubuli @Marina Bay Sands

2017-02-21 19.47.14

We had made reservations via Chope after seeing the menu on the Chope website, but it turned out that the restaurant had already updated their menu quite a while ago 😦

Nonetheless, we decided try out some of the food, since we were here already (plus we were hungryyyyyyyy):

  • 极品和牛包 Goubuli Buns with Wagyu Filling ($3.90++ per piece): This was served cold. What a waste of the beef!! 😦 Utter disappointment for what was meant to be the highlight of the restaurant.
  • 三鲜猪肉包 Goubuli Buns with Pork and Seafood Filling ($3++ per piece): Served lukewarm, this was definitely better than the Wagyu version. Still, we have had better buns before.
  • 口水鸡 Steamed Chicken with Szechuan Chilli Oil ($14.80++): Only 1-chilli rating, but it was definitely too spicy for us, haha!
  • 脆皮烧肉拼叉烧 Crackling Pork Belly & Honey Glazed Barbecued Pork ($32++ for small): The pork belly skin was really crispy, and indeed crackling when we bit into it, and the meat was quite tender. The barbecued pork paled in comparison, but was still not bad.
  • 咸鱼茄子豆腐煲 Eggplants and Tofu in Salted Fish Sauce ($22++ for small):  The pot of aromatic goodness was pretty addictive, without being overly salty.
  • 天津栗子鸡煲 Tianjin Style Claypot Stewed Chicken with Chestnuts ($22++ for small): This was pretty average.

Overall, we thought it was rather pricey, and very disappointing that the buns were so below standard.

Kam’s Roast @Pacific Plaza

2017-01-30 17.40.39Since Kam’s Roast was also located in Pacific Plaza, we figured that we should end our foodie day with yet another Michelin-starred eatery, this time from Hong Kong. Being early evening, there was absolutely no queue!

Unfortunately, unlike its Hong Kong outlet which we had tried previously, goose was not available in Singapore, so we opted for Roast Duck 甘牌烧鸭 ($19.80++ for lower quarter), ‘Toro’ Char Siu 肥浓叉烧  (22.80++), and Marinated Black Fungus with Vinegar 香醋黑木耳 ($6.80++).

Gotta say that we were still as pleased as ever with the fatty char siew, with its lovely meat to fat ratio and nicely charred bits. The roast duck was drenched in sauce already, so the skin was not as crispy as we would have preferred. As for the duck meat, well, it a little below our expectations. The black fungus was chewy with a good bite, and provided a refreshing lift to the meal.

I Want My Noodle 见面就笑 @Shaw Centre

There are so many food options at Shaw Centre new wing!

Decisions, decisions, and finally we decided that I Want My Noodle sounded 霸气 enough to get our first vote. We decided to share My Noodle with Double Roast ($12.50 nett), add Pebbles Dessert for $2.50 (usual price $3.90), and Fried Wings ($7.90).

The noodles was quite delicious! Reminded us of the curly type of instant noodles, but a thicker version. Both the char siew and sio bah were very flavourful, and we loved the well proportioned meat and fats; not too much fats, but enough for flavours. It would be perfect if the meats could be just a little bit more tender.

The flourless fried wings were already well-marinated, without needing the additional sambal chilli. The meat was tender and juicy!

I was a bit apprehensive to try the dessert, as it looked like it was made from mochi. Well, there was a little bit of the mochi element in it, but the flavours were oh-so-good and fragrant! We had to dust off the icing from the pebbles though, as the artificial sweetness was overpowering the natural sweetness of the sweet potato and purple potato balls.

Note: only cash or NETS payment is accepted here.

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.
