The Eastern Restaurant – Looking for something good and reasonable?

16 Aug

Together with Flaunt PR & Communications http://yourpublicitymatters.com/ย  I recently attended a tasting at The Eastern Restaurant http://www.easternrestaurant.com/

The feast started with a few of dishes and of those I was really shocked by this!Looks like an average noodle dish doesn’t it? But this noodle’s true identity is something similar to bean curd! I was really impressed that they are always trying to cook something that tastes good and is interesting. (It’s still not on the menu, lets hope they will put in the menu sometime very soon :))

I got to try trillions of nice food that day but let me introduce Hanamitiii’s recommendable dishes in this restaurant.

Noodles, noodles and noodlesssss!!The secret of these noodles are that they are all HAND-MADE from scratch! You can see how they are making them at the restaurant which is another thing you can enjoy at this place ๐Ÿ™‚ It was just beautiful to see one big dough become thin layers of noodles!

And of course Tim Sum! If you are not sure what to eat, go with

Eastern Restaurant Xiao Long Bao

and Wanton with hot chili sauce! Those are definitely something that most everyone loves! Classic and has some kick flavors.ย 

For desert, you could try famous Flowing Custard Bun!!! Custard is made with salted egg yolks.Wondering about the inside? Well you better find it out by yourself!

Yummilicious Feast @ Icon Village

13 Jun

First thing is first! I would love to thank OMY http://www.omy.sg/ for giving me this opportunity and also for all the restaurant staff who welcomed me very warmly!ย 

On Saturday, June 11th 2011, I attended Yummilicious Feast @ Icon Village ๐Ÿ™‚ย  You might be wondering what it is….Well, I’ve got an opportunity to visit 8 different places to try their food!! SUPER NICE isn’t it??!!! AND I really do want to share the AMAZING information of those places with you guys ๐Ÿ˜‰ The followings are my comments and details of the restaurants! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

1. KUMO Japanese Kaiseki Restaurant (Tel: 6225 8433) www.kumokaiseki.com.sgTried Sushi (lightly torched sea bream, crystal bay prawn, pike eel,octopus, sea urchin). I must confess that I was little bit disappointed with the dryness of the rice and seafood however the texture and freshness of the sea urchin (Uni) was pretty good! When you eat bad sea urchin it gives you an unpleasant smell but this sea urchin was smooth and gave me no bad smell at all ๐Ÿ™‚

2. SALTA Argentine Parrilla + Grocer (Tel: 6225 8443)ย www.saltaparrilla.com.sgTried Parrillada: Mixed grill : Beef sirloin 200gm, Beef skirt 200gm, Chicken Thigh 250gm, Black Hog Pork Loin 200gm, Pork Sausage 140gm, Lamb Rack 180gm, Grilled Capsicum, Baby Corn, Carrot & Zucchini Baked Rosemary Garlic potatoes with 3 different kind of sauce. The chicken was slightly over cooked and dry however the others were cooked pretty well, all tender and juicy ๐Ÿ™‚ All sauces were AMAZING and well matched with the meats ๐Ÿ˜‰

3. Pizzeria L’Operetta Tried Bismark Pizza – wood oven pizza topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella & parmesan cheese, ham, mushrooms & egg. It tasted great! Very balanced taste, not too heavy nor oily. Fresh texture.

4. Ramen Culture (Tel: 6222 5110) www.fnbculture.sgTried Ox-Tail Ramen & Hot-Stone Tsuke Men. I wasn’t a huge fan of the noodles themselves, they weren’t very fresh I must say….Hot-Stone Tsuke men might be good for the person who like salty and spicy food, I’m pretty sure lots of people would like Ox-Tail Ramen! It’s like a light textured broth ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Muffets Room (Tel: 6410 9353)ย www.muffetsroom.comTried Fish & Chips & Pasta: A little bit too much sauce compare with the portion of the pasts and also the pasta wasn’t al dente. However, this place’s Fish & Chips were AMAZING! The fish was juicy and moist.ย 

6. Whips Cupcakes (Tel: 6222 5432) www.whipscupcakes.comTried Red Velvet Cupcakes: The person who loves thick cream would LOVE these reasonable 1 S$ mini cupcakes! They literally gave me a little day dream ๐Ÿ˜‰

7. Pรขtisserie Glacรฉ (Tel: 6400 0247) www.cakeglace.comTried 20 Rin Rin Ice Cheese Tarts, Cheese Tart (with strawberry), Strawberry cake and Chocolatier Taste Cake. I thought the Strawberry Cake and Chocolatier Cake were very light in texture and there was nothing very special about them though both Ice Cheese Tarts and the Cheese Tart (with strawberry) were gorgeously rich but not too sweet.

8. Frost Bites (Tel: 6225 0585) www.facebook.com/frostbitescafeTried Frozen yogurt with 2 toppings: How could this desert be bad?! Just simply yummy and refreshing ๐Ÿ™‚ Friendly for the people who are on a diet.

There are nice promotions are going on at Icon Village at moment http://www.iconvillage.com.sg/home/index.aspx?key=promotions, those promotions are until July 31st! Hurry up and enjoy fab foods ๐Ÿ™‚

Must drink saka

14 Dec

I had a chance to visit a sake brewery called Kamoizumisakekabushikigaisya (่ณ€่Œ‚ๆณ‰้…’้€ ๆ ชๅผไผš็คพ) at Hiroshima (Higashihiroshima, Saijyou). As everyone KNOWS you can’t get great drink without visiting THE place. Even within Hiroshima if you go to different cities you can’t buy those fresh nice Sake. So my mission was of course to get decent Sake for my dreamy days and nights.

I’ve tried almost all Sake at the site and I’ve found MANY great Sake over there. I would LOVE to introduce couples of those you MUST try before you die.

The left one’s is Jyunmai-Daiginjyou Kamoizumi (Fresh sake: not possible to keep long time, you have to put in the fridge and drink it as soon as possible!!!)

The right one is Kamozuru Kuradashi Genshu (Possible to keep longer than Fresh one but once you open better drink it sooner).

Both of them are not too sweet nor dry so very neutral and refreshing taste. Also they don’t have too strong smell like other Sake has. Very very soft on your tongue and throat. Surely Jyunmai-daiginjyou Kamoizumi (The green bottle) is fresher and give you great texture on your tongue since it’s fresh fresh fresh Sake. If you have chance, drink Jumnai-Daiginjyou Kamoizumi in Hiroshima and bring Kamozuru Kuradashi Genshu (The blue bottle) as a souvenir.

Do not make them hot sake, drink them as cold one. My knowledgeable brother told me great Sake should be always served as chilled one.

Have a great journy to Hiroshima (Higashihiroshima, Saijyou) and enjoy the great tastes!!!!

Great snacks pt.1

3 Nov

Graaaapes!!! They contain high sugar BUT they also contain great nutritions for your health such as Vitamin C, Iron, magnesium. etc. Hence grapes (especially dark color grapes’ skin; red and black grapes)ย  bring you strong antioxidant, they keep you young and prevent you from many physical symptoms such as fatigue, high blood pressure, heart diseases.

Since skin of grapes also include fantastic nutritions, it is essential to eat their skin to gain maximum benefits BUT you MUST remember random grapes are covered with heaps of pesticides. And they WON’T go away if you just wash them. Maybe it is difficult to see the danger BECAUSE you can’t see actual problem. Imagine if you are drinking mixture of shampoo, soap, make up remove etc. Isn’t it horrifying? (I believe pesticides are not as dangerous as this but they KILL all insects so could NOT be health at all). Also farmers’ investigations indicates that organic foods contain more nutrition than regular foods. (Less pesticides = Less damage on soil (actually soil is hugely related with making amazing veg, fruits) = great veg, fruits) ๐Ÿ™‚

Ditch all your candies, potato chips and go with organic grapes to enjoy full benefit of grapes!


Mr.Mrs.Miss Shrimp’s revenge

23 Jul

Well I wrote about I’m obsessed with shrimps, ate too much of them (refer shrimps-little obsession pt.2) and I suffer from lots of stuff afterward. BUT I didn’t quite mentioned about other horrifying thing about those Shrimps.

After I ate 50 Mr.Mrs.Miss Shrimps I felt kinda shrimpy. THEY WERE FORCING ME TO BE A SHRIMP!!! and look what happened. Bunch of my friends were laughing REAL hard whenever they see this picture. Some people even asked me if I was drunk.

BUT believe me I was dead serious this time and I think this is because of those Shrimps cursing thing.

I think they don’t quite understand if we don’t eat them they will be awful rotten Shrimps and smell awful. Please be careful not to eat so many Shrimps you might ended up being one of Shrimp victims.

Soft core’s eating style

18 Jul

I wrote about Hard-core’s eating style and chips couple of days ago. My friend Lesmin told me how bad those naughty food are. BUT let me explain about this naughty food thing. I have been cooking..what how long??? almost 3-4 year by myself and most of them are made from scratch and and and using those organic stuff if I can help. I’m using bunch of vege and other random stuff. So I am REAL close to those strict monks.

But I should admit…yes, Lesmin is right I shouldn’t eat naughty foods because they are way too naughty and my body just CAN’T take them at all!!! And here I am. I am struggling from tummy-aches and I can’t even eat normal stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I’m back to monk life again, rice porridge all day long again ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Oh god, when can I be REAL hard-core???
