Went out with Mummy and bro the other day to catch a movie! But of coz, it's always important that we fill our tummies first! Mummy had wanted to have our lunch at Joaquim
(porridge buffet in suntec) but we ended up having another porridge buffet in marina square's hotpot culture~
This is coz fate works in curious ways! Haha~ We were in marina square purchasing movie tickets before heading to suntec when we were handed this pamphlet where we were enticed by this $6.90
Since it's still a porridge buffet and being the
good thrifty people we are, we headed straight for hotpot culture!Marina Square

I was actually thinking how similar the food was to Rajah Inn
while i was eating. My suspicion was confirmed when i was ready to take that picture coz right under their signboard were the words "Managed by Rajah Inn"!
There's quite a huge crowd during lunch hour; we almost couldn't get any seats! We shared all that we took; those were the usual suspects! The fried fish fillets were amazingly good though!
No i dun dare to eat fatty meats!
Their fried duck tasted strangely like sesame chicken!
Ooh u gotta try their lup cheong (chinese sausage)
which tasted amazingly like bak gwa! All of us loved it!
U cannot tell, but these are the amazing (yes i do realise i'm overusing the word "amazing" in this entry)
fried fish fillets! Crispy on the outside, tender and moist on the inside! Best consumed warm!
U can have their fried bee hoon...
Or sweet potato porridge (sweet potato nowhere to be found)
! There's rice too, but we didn't have any~
Green bean soup for dessert! The green beans were all snapped up so all we got was the soup haha!
Another dessert alternative would be the watermelon!
In a nutshell, hotpot culture was slightly better than Rajah Inn
, but the food's still rather average and the variety was what u would expect to find in a chup cai png
stall except for a few winners like the fried fish fillets and lup cheong
We didn't know what to watch so we just picked ah long pte ltd since neither of us watched it during the CNY period. We were so surprised it's still showing in theatres (only GV i think)
Well it wasn't as bad as we expected (from all the bad reviews)
~ Parts of the plot and some jokes were really lame, but it certainly didn't deserve the miserable 1/2 star rating it got in 8 Days!
