Pepper Lunch

We used to be so obsessed with Pepper Lunch when it was first introduced here! But it's been eons since we'd last stepped in here so a visit was in order~

Hamburger steak with fried egg set ($10++ with coupon)

For some reason i only like to go to their ngee ann city outlet~ The hamburger steak was just as i remembered it; juicy and savoury~

In case u sua gu and dunno how to cook ur order, use ur common sense haha :p~~ Drizzle honey brown sauce and tuck in!

One thing though; skip their salmon! Too fishy, bland and tough on the palate!

The Asian Kitchen - La Mian Xiao Long Bao

We had kinda developed a liking for Asian Kitchen ever since our first visit for their decent fare at affordable prices~

Hence, we opted for our dinner at Asian Kitchen (Citylink's branch). What's more, my disappointment in not being able to get my xiao long bao(soup dumplings) the previous visit at its Marina Square's branch can finally be made up for!

La Mian(hand-pulled noodles) ($5.70) in clear broth~ A really simple and plain dish but the noodles was light and the soup delightfully flavourful~

The aroma of our Luncheon Meat Fried Rice ($6.70) wafted over before it was even set down on our table; the fragrance of fried egg was particularly prominent~

There was actually plenty of luncheon meat cubes buried under the rice. Hate the peas though. =p~~ A satisfactory dish that could have been better if it had more wok hei!

The Pork & Prawn Dumplings ($4.70 for 4) had generous fillings but would have been better if there was more of that tasty soup in them!

Both of us loved this! Their Guo Tie (pan-fried dumplings) ($5.70 for 6) had generous portions of fillings wrapped up in thin dumpling skin that was delightfully soft and crispy at the same time~

The condiments~

The chilli was kinda special; it had a crispy bite and was really fragrant! The ginger slices soaked in vinegar was quite the perfect complement to the Guo Tie!

Fishermen's Wharf

If ur looking for anything else other than fish and chips, u would be sorely disappointed at Fishermen's Wharf.

That's right, they only have fish and chips on their menu! However, as though to compensate, they do offer several different kinds of fish. One thing i love about this quaint eatery is that they differentiate between chips and fries. Definitely the chips for me!

We both ordered cream dory with chips ($6.50) which came in generous portions. Dimly lit and with a laid-back atmosphere, service is almost non-existent here as u have to make ur orders at the counter and have the expressionless faces of their staff staring back at u. Kinda irritating~

Fortunately the food made up for it. The batter was crispy and laced with a hint of pepper while its meat was moist and soft~ The chips easily won me over!

It's my first time eating my fish and chips the traditional way; with malt vinegar and salt. I thought it would have been awful, given my dislike for vinegar. However, it turned out well as the malt vinegar really brought out the taste of the fish! Sprinkle salt sparingly and tuck in!

I still like my tartar sauce though! Fishermen's Wharf's version was good!

Located jux opposite The Central along this row of shophouses (27 New Bridge Road)~

Been wanting to check out Waraku for quite some time now! Made a reservation at The Central's outlet for a window seat so that we can enjoy some kind of view during our lunch~ ^_^

The Central
6 Eu Tong Sen Street
Singapore 059817

Tel: 63278860

11:30am - 11pm Daily (Last order 10:30pm)

*Do visit their webbie for more information on their other outlets!*

Love the display!

This is what im gonna eat! Wahaha~

The menu and the condiments~

We ordered this carbonated soft drink from Japan called Ramune ($2.80) which tasted rather like Sprite, but sweeter. To open, push the marble down with a loud pop~ The marble gets trapped codd-neck marble lock in the neck of the bottle and swirls around noisily as u pour~

My Tonkatsu set ($15.50)! Was rather cheap considering the generous portions! The breaded deep fried pork was crispy, moist and served with shredded cabbage topped with thousand island dressing~ The sesame sauce dip was quite the perfect complement!

The udon was thick, springy and drowned in savoury miso soup. The udon was so thick that i had only 1 strand each mouthful! The soup was so flavourful and there was lots of these fried batter bits~ They turned soggy in no time but it was a pretty nice touch nevertheless!

The rice was soft, moist and chewy enough~ I love love love the potato salad coz there was so much onion inside! Wahaha~

Ended up giving half of my rice and udon to Baby coz i simply couldn't polish off the whole set by myself!

Baby's Katsu Curry Don (Regular - $12.80)~ Their menu indicated M and R for their bowl size and i thought M was Medium but it actually turned out to be Mini! -_-"

The curry wasn't spicy at all; instead it was mildly sweet with chunks of carrots in it~ Not a bad version!

This was the view we had! ^_^ Should look better at night!

In a nutshell, pretty value for money. Prices weren't that high, yet quality wasn't compromised~ The staff's constant loud shoutings of various Jap greetings can get a tad irritating though!

Han's Cafe

I used to frequent Han's for their fish and chips; for the simple fact that they're cheap, yet good. However, as their standards dipped over the years, i stopped patronising them~

However, as we walked past Han's at its Marina Square's outlet, we decided to have our dinner there jux to assess the current situation~

The pies on display~

I ordered their Fish and Chips set; for old time's sake. I realised that their prices are now much lower. For $7.80, i can get the whole set comprising of the fish and chips and all of the above (picture)~

The soup-of-the-day was cream of chicken. Tasted average; a tad diluted though. The lightly toasted bread was buttered with garlic spread which tasted bland. A single piece of honeydew served as dessert and it was rather tasteless. The only saving grace was the orange juice, which was probably straight out of a carton or something.

The fish and chips was still as bad. The fish was seasoned heavily with pepper; perhaps to mask the inferior quality of the fish they use. Gone were the days when their fish and chips was almost like their house specialty~

Baby got their Chicken Superburger (With Egg)~ Hardly deserving of its name. The supposedly Superburger comprised only of a single chicken patty and a fried egg. Did i mention that it's only $5?!

Baby complained that the chicken patty was heavily seasoned with pepper too~ When i tried it, i thought that it had this taste that strangely resembled shao xing wine~ O_o"

On our way out of the restuarant, we saw this table of 4 who were pushing the food around their plates before 1 of them blurted out, "Eh ur one nice onot? Mine not nice leh!"

There's no service charge and the bill summed up to only $12.80 but we probably wun return any time soon!

The Rajah Inn

Being the cheapos good thrifty ppl we are, the $5.90++ porridge buffet at The Rajah Inn's certainly welcoming!

Love how the lights illuminating the sign appeared like a heart!

Tiong Bahru Plaza
302 Tiong Bahru Road
Singapore 168732

11.30 to 10pm
(11.30 to 2.30 for lunch buffet)

Tel: 68350080

The usual suspects~

There were about 20 different dishes to choose from and besides porridge, they offer rice, fried bee hoon, fried tung hoon and fruits as dessert as well~

The fried bee hoon was pretty good and the dishes were typical and what u would expect to find in an economic rice stall. Quite forgettable, but the kung pao chicken and steamed egg weren't too bad~

Baby digging into his fried tung hoon~

The porridge was the semi-solid kind and tasted nice enough on its own~

There was plenty of watermelon and honeydew available as dessert~ Fresh, juicy and sweet! And u wun go wrong if u order their lime juice ($1.50)!

Rajah Inn does not offer buffet for dinner but steamboat instead~ Visit their webbie for more details!

Jia Xiang Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee

Baby and I absolutely do not mind paying good money for food, provided that they come with the expected quality. We get positively pissed at rip-offs!

We were in Marina Square, wondering what to have for dinner when we walked past Jia Xiang Sarawak Kuching Kolo Mee (Other branches in VivoCity and Chinatown)~ Decided to give it a try since kolo mee is almost like the national dish over in Kuching, Sarawak and we harboured high hopes. Considering that an overseas branch might not be that authentic, we had hoped for it to be at least above average~

But alas, we were very disappointed indeed!

$5.90 for a bowl of kolo mee which tastes like wanton mee is quite ridiculous. What's more, the portion was meagre and hardly filling. Baby then requested for extra noodles for both of us and get this: the extra noodles came at a cost of $2 each! That really took the cake. Might as well not request for the extra noodles coz it hardly made any difference to the paltry portions!

Summed up to about $8 for a bowl of kolo mee~ -_-" I say take away the unnecessary items like the boiled wantons and prawns in our soup and shed a few dollars off the price!

The noodles. Despite the appearance, it was not springy enough and kind of tasted like the noodles in average wanton mee~ And can u see how dry it was?

Bill came up to about $20 (drinks included)~ Rip-off with a capital R! Will not be going back again coz i would much rather go for Parklane or Pontian!

Makansutra Glutton's Bay

We felt like having something local for our dinner, hence we headed over to Makansutra Glutton's Bay since we were in the vicinity~

Although they boast of Makansutra rated food stalls, we had tried out the various stalls on previous occasions and decided that they were jux average~

However it's been really long since we last came here so we decided to give it a try again~

The fried hokkien mee (Medium - $6) was mediocre. Sufficiently moist, but i would have liked it more if there was more of the yellow noodles. Quite a lot of prawns though~

It's one of our favourite cze cha dishes but the sambal kangkong (Small - $5) from the cze cha stall here was disappointing. Not spicy enough and a tad bland~

Another mediocre dish. The chai tow kway (fried carrot cake) (Small - $4) was not black enough, and would have tasted better if there were more chai po (pickled lettuce bits)~

Standards of food deteriorate once they get commercialised. Haiz~

Arnold's Fried Chicken (Revisited)

We were craving for Arnold's Fried Chicken!

Both of us ordered the Half Spring Chicken Set ($4.90 each)~ Am glad to say that they're still as good! The chicken was well-seasoned and fragrant~ Love the cripsy skin and the tender, juicy meat!

Here's my previous visit to Arnold's which contains more details!

Suntec City, #B1-048/049
Plaza Singapura, #B2-25/26

I can never finish a Carl's Jr's burger all by myself so we ordered the Portobello Mushroom Burger (double patty) combo set to share~

Heaps of portobello mushrooms topped on juicy beef patties, completed with onion slices, cheese, fresh lettuce and tomatoes~ Most pleasurable! ^_^

Now u can see it all clearly! ^_^

The beef chilli cheese fries! I like this alot! In my opinion, the beef chilli tastes jux like curry haha~
