It’s the last day of 2013 and we were looking for a place for lunch. Ended up in Toa Payoh, and since we were looking for some light food, we strolled to Toa Payoh garden and visited Oasis Taiwan Porridge!
It has been quite a while since we visited and we have always been a fan of the Taiwan porridge here because it serves cockles! This bloody (literally) shell delicacy goes so well with the plain smooth porridge! And also because this place is never crowded, has a great view of Toa Payoh Lake, and most importantly, has air-con! You see, when you eat piping hot porridge, you don’t want to be in a air-con-less place because that makes you sweat profusely and its uncomfortable.
This place has a great ambiance and the tables are not cramped together, which gives patrons enough ‘breathing space’. There are not too much parking space though so for those who drives, you may have to park at the nearby Toa Payoh Stadium, and take a short walk.
Note: Shin Yeh Bistro has ceased operations at this location.
There was a Deal on sale where you pay S$30 for S$60 worth at Shin Yeh Bistro in Novena so we bought the Deal and here we are again!
Have been craving for Taiwan food ever since we came back so this “sort-of” satisfy our cravings before we go Taiwan again!
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. 🙂
We decided to go healthy today and came to Miao Yi Vegetarian Restaurant.. wow, haven’t been here since JC days and it’s still going on strong!
Claypot Tofu with Assortment
Claypot Tofu with Assortment ($10): The tofu was very smooth! But the fried skin tasted a tad sour-ish. The gravy had a hint of herbal taste, quite delicious! Assortment refers to the peas, mushrooms, yam bits, carrots and wong bok. Continue reading
Let’s Scoot out of here! Thanks to the $0.02 promotion 2 months ago, we are Scooting out on a nice Friday morning! Very early indeed, on flight TZ202 departing at 12:55am on 13 Sep 2013 at Changi Airport T1 Gate F50. Check-in was a breeze as there was no queue when we arrived 2.5 hours before flight time.
Flight time was 4.5 hours and we touched down ahead of schedule at Taoyuan Airport in Taipei around 5:25am and were greeted by the beautiful sunrise. It was a very smooth flight, and the plane was very clean with very decent leg space! Descent was very lovely with the countless lights from the grounds that shone through as we watched the skies slowly change from dark to light. Too bad there was a toddler crying for perhaps ⅓ of the time and was sometimes crying directly into hubby’s face so he didn’t get to rest much.
