Slurppp!!!

Posted in Food, Food and Food with tags on March 28, 2010 by MeMeL

This post was supposed to be done when I was still in Singapore actually.. but.. yeah at least now I post it.. like old wise man said.. better late than never..

so.. as you all know.. I guess.. there’s not much thing I could do when I was staying at Singapore.. I had it enough for 1 year.. trying to entertain myself with anything I could find there.. and culinary is my answer.. I guess that explain the chubby fat *sigh*

but still..

I prefer to spend my money on food rather on clothes or bag or shoes.. so.. I’m not regret it.. even though I became chubby hehehe

and here I want to show some of the food I had tried in Singapore and I really really recommended these foods for you to tried!

I tried my first middle east food in Singapore.. the restaurant was located in Arab Street behind Bugis Junction.. it’s very near.. you could just walk from Bugis MRT station to get there.. actually there were a lot of middle east restaurants and I just picked one that looked nice (and cheap!) but I forgot the name..

did I like the food? I was totally loved the food!!!! it was delicious and made me crave for more.. slurppp!!

it’s Morrocan food to be exact.. from the drink, appetizer to the main course only cost us SGD $15.. I think it’s a fair price for a good food.. the drink was made from goat milk turn into milkshake or something similar but the taste was like salty yoghurt.. quite unique though but I don’t think I want to try it again~~

for the appetizer.. this was the best part! I really love the pita bread and the hummus!! really really love it..

because of this, whenever I went to Morrocan or other middle east restaurant, I will order pita bread with the hummus.. besides in Arab Street.. in Clarke Quay, there’s also a Morrocan restaurant which provide good food too (but will cost you much higher)..

for the main course.. it’s Kebab.. they called it Schazlick Kebab or something similar.. I forgot how to write the name *ehehehehe forgive me* ~~ I had a mixed kebab.. chicken, lamb and beef.. and the taste was so good.. I really like the spices they used..

from middle east, I moved on to Belgium!

yup.. because after so many weeks eating at different places and tried food from different countries.. me and my friend were run out of food.. and when we heard there’s a Belgium restaurant in Singapore.. heck! let’s try it!!

actually.. I never know Belgian has its own traditional food.. I thought all European have the same traditional food like sausage and goulash.. but apparently I was wrong..  so when I got there I asked the waitress about the authentic Belgian food.. and they recommended a duck organ or something in soup >.< errr too authentic for me.. pass!!! I asked what else and they said beef stew.. now that seems more like a food to me so I ordered it.. and how is it? one word.. GREAT! pork sausage also one of the original food from Europe and when I can say no to delicious food?

for the dessert.. of course we should try the world famous Belgian chocolate and waffle!

the restaurant’s name is Ooster.. it’s located in Raffles Place.. I don’t think many people know about this place especially Indonesian who only go to Orchad whenever they spent their holiday in Singapore.. but I suggest you to go to this area coz there are a lot of good food range from low to high price.. you can find the most famous Teh Tarik also in here..

so my conclusion about Ooster? even though the food were delicious but I pity my wallet~~

next stop! Japan!! *I wish*

there was a new cafe in a new mall, Iluma, called Benten Cafe.. at first when I heard the name.. it reminds me of the Ben10 cartoon.. you know? but it has nothing in similar at all.. the cafe sell burger steak for their main dish.. it’s a fusion between japan and western food.. a meat burger on a steak plate poured with curry sauce.. I miss the curry~~

like I said.. the cafe was located in Iluma.. the new mall beside Bugis Village.. the opposite of Bugis Junction.. you should go there and try for yourself~~

and for the last..

this is my favourite restaurant there.. western food with good french fries.. who am I to deny that??

ehmm the pic doesn’t have french fries in it coz I switched it with mashed potato which also yummy too~~ it’s from Botak Jones and you can find these restaurants in many places.. like in Orchad behind Cathay Cineleisure or in Clementi or in Marine Parade.. it’s always packed especially with young ones.. good food nice price.. who can resist that~~

ahh~~ seeing all these pics makes me hungry~~ I miss all the food since I couldn’t find it here..

if any of you know where I could find a delicious pita bread and hummus.. please please pretty please tell me?? ^^

hmmm i think today is the most active me in term of uploading post ;p hahahahahahahahaha.. i don’t know how much already i uploaded the post.. but never mind about that.. coz i have been lacking lately so this way i could repay my debt to my blog hahahahahahahaha..

so~~ this time i want to give you some pics about singapore street food!! yeah!! even though in here the food is not as good as in indonesia or any other country *the flavor is really really plain* but still i’ve managed to discover some food that have strong flavor compare to others hahahahahahaha.. and i want to recommend these if you want to come to spore and enjoy meal in here ^o^

dsc01807

this called Carrot Cake!! and no.. it’s not made from carrot.. actually it’s made from radish or usually people called chinese carrot.. so that’s why they called it carrot cake ^~^ this one i can say as the original and authentic spore food.. must try this one.. taste really good but the one that i think is the best carrot cake was sold in China Town..

yup yup you can find plenty of nice food in China Town ^o^ so i recommend you to come here instead of Orchad if you go to singapore ;p hahahahahaha.. you can’t find nice food in Orchad.. expensive and nice of course but not the cheap one hahahahahahahaha..

and other food or side snack should i say that i liked in China Town is Ahbaling!! it’s actually a mochi filled with vary of paste.. there’s peanut paste, red bean paste, green tea paste, black sesame paste and yam paste.. my fav of course black sesame paste!! heheheheheehehehehe.. also the soup comes in 3 choices.. peanut soup, ginger soup, and almond milk.. hehehehehehe..

Posted in Food, Food and Food on January 2, 2009 by MeMeL

First stop.. tcc ~~ the coffee connoisseur!!!

sarika-connoisseur1

Last week *i think*.. me and my housemate.. the two of us.. after longing for a long time.. finally.. we managed to go to tcc to try the menu there hahahahahahahaha…

at first.. we wanted to taste the main course but.. after second thought.. coz we wanted to taste not only one but several dishes.. then we finally decided to try the snacks hahahahaha.. errr.. they said it was snack but.. the truth is.. you can get full just by eating the snack ;p hahahahahahaha..

so.. we decided to order 3 snacks.. we thought if we were not full yet than we can ordered again.. eventually~~~ we didn’t.. full already!!!!

the first was.. potato bites with cheese dipper.. or so it called.. forgot the name hahahahaha.. but this one is highly recommended.. i loveeeee this one hahahaha.. maybe coz i like potato n cheese hahahahaha..

dsc016752

next.. we ordered beef tofu!!!! it’s so yummy.. it’s like lasagna but used tofu as the layer.. i thought it would taste weird but infact.. yummy!!!! and becoz they used tofu so you wouldn’t felt sick after ate it.. eventhough the size is quite big *for snack size..*

dsc016762

the last part was.. shrimp bites.. yah don’t remember the name as well hahahahahaha.. this one i think ok but not too special.. still prefer the other two hehehehe..

dsc016792

and for the drinks.. i ordered Azuki Freeze ^o^ and my friend’s Peach Yogurt Milkshake.. sounds very creamy right.. yeah i thought i chose the wrong one too.. but when I tried both of them.. hmmmmmm it’s very refreshing!!! the creamy-feel wasn’t that strong.. moreover.. it’s very light hahahahahaha.. not regret to order them ;p hehehehe.. btw.. azuki means red bean so you can see the red bean above hahahaha ^o^

dsc016701

ehehehehe.. yup2 i think that’s all my review for tcc hahahahahaha.. the prices are quite expensive though T.T hiks hiks *about SGD$ 9-25* but it’s worth to try.. for once hahahahahahaha…
