The Only Reason I Enter Marks & Spencer Stores ;)

marks n spencer singapore

Some people visit Marks & Spencer to shop for new clothes. But I have only one agenda in mind: M&S chocolate! πŸ˜€ The person who introduced me to M&S is a certain GP tutor who used to come to class with a box full of sweets. You wouldn’t think that you’d need to reward (read: bribe) junior college students for good behavior, but food always works. And that much-needed dose of sugar on lazy afternoons is a real perk-me-up! And come to think of it, it was a classmate who gave me my first Twix bar and got me hooked on Twix! If anyone’s to be blamed if I suffer from obesity or diabetes, it’s these two! πŸ˜› Jokes aside, when I popped by Marks & Spencer at Plaza Singapura yesterday, I decided to check out the other F&B items on sale, besides the chocolate that I had gone in for.

And there were items such as this gluten free spaghetti! Yum! I bought 2 different jars of pasta sauce as well and surprisingly, the bigger jar is the cheaper one.

In the fridges, I also saw all sorts of items which looked like TV dinners – the kind you simply stuff into the microwave oven and you have a meal ready in a matter of minutes.

Also, I bought a “Tom Yum Soup Kit” at $9.90 – if the broth is yummy, it’ll be well worth the price. And a couple of other items I’ve never tried before too. Will update this post once I’ve cooked and eaten them all. πŸ˜€

But here are my favorite Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds from Marks & Spencer. They’re on offer right now. Each box costs $6.30 and it’s Buy-1-Get-1-Free! There’s also Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, Orange Chocolate, but Milk Choc is my absolute favorite. And I love not keeping them in the fridge.

I love it when the chocolate’s all melted and gooey on a hot day. Some people love to keep chocolates in the fridge and they get all solid and are terribly difficult to bite through. I think they’re nuts. And I guess the feeling’s mutual. Just for the record, I like soggy fries too. So there. πŸ˜›

Streats Hong Kong Cafe @ Nex: Delicious Curry Chicken & Beef Baked Rice!

streats hong kong cafe nex

Randomly picked this cafe for our dinner and it turned out to be a great choice! As we don’t usually head to Serangoon Nex for food (though you have to try that Spiderman-themed pizza, which is truly delicious), I picked this cafe as it didn’t look too crowded. Also, do you remember when we had the Streats newspaper a long, long time ago? I wonder if that’s where this cafe got its name from. πŸ˜€ In any case, I now consider Streats a hidden gem at Nex. It’s located on level 3, the same level as the FairPrice supermarket.

I ordered the Chicken Curry with rice (you can choose to have bread with your curry instead of rice) and though it may not look like much, it’s one of the better versions of this dish you can find in malls! And it came with a huge serving of rice which was almost enough for two people to share! But what I love most is that they light a flame under the claypot so your curry never gets cold! Hot curry and white rice… absolutely lovely on a rainy day!

(Price: $10.80)

He ordered the Black Pepper Beef Cheese Baked Rice ($11.80) which also tasted way better than it looks. There’s not too much rice, but lots of black pepper beef (which is oh so tender) and lots of cheese and I do love the onion strips just below the cheese. The whole combination makes for a very yummy dish.

We shared this beverage they call “Fruity Snow” which features soursop juice (or ice blend, if you will) and 3 longans.

Both of us were really impressed – we didn’t expect the food here to be so good. Streats is definitely worth a second visit! πŸ™‚

Joan Bowen Cafe: The Cafe That Feels Like Home

joan bowen cafe pork belly

Since reading about Joan Bowen Cafe sometime back, I’ve been wanting to visit. As it’s not located near one of my frequent haunts, I postponed the visit indefinitely. As luck would have it, a new friend was willing to visit the cafe with me so yay! Joan Bowen Cafe is ‘known’ as the cafe which employs youths with special needs, but I won’t want to introduce the cafe as such. This is because I watched a video on Facebook recently, in which a lady with Down Syndrome was explaining that people who are labelled as having “special needs” don’t actually have needs that are “special” – their needs are the same as everyone else’s. Things they need are those such as love, opportunities, employment, etc. It’s exactly what everyone needs. So what’s so “special” about their needs? I agree with her.

Still, I think cafes like this one deserve to have more people come by and try the food, and know that people whom society thinks have “special needs” can actually be trained in industries like F&B, and they can excel in their jobs too!

The cafe is a little out of the way if you don’t drive, or aren’t familiar with the Sennett estate. But you can take the train to Potong Pasir MRT station, and head out of exit B. Then turn left (following the direction of traffic) till you see a tall, dark condominium block. Take another left and walk straight till you see the cafe. It’s located at 9 Jalan Wangi.

Joan Bowen Cafe location

Joan Bowen Cafe is very cosy, just as if you’ve walked into someone’s home. Near the glass window is also an armchair and a study table where you might find a middle-aged lady working on a computer. I didn’t ask for her name nor inquire if she’s one of the owners (but I’m guessing she is). And just like a mother, she told us to tuck into the food (instead of talking and taking pictures) before it gets cold. And she even offered to heat up the mushroom soup (that we had yet to touch) if needed, but that we should eat the mains first.

I love how the cafe works around the preferences of the staff. Many are used to their particular routines, so if you have guests ordering from an extensive a la carte menu, it might be a very stressful situation. Hence, it’s a simple set lunch menu with 5 options for mains. It’s great for the staff and great for guests who cannot make up their minds about what to eat either! πŸ™‚

joan bowen cafe menu

For just $20, you get mushroom soup, your choice of main dish, and dessert (oreo cheesecake). The motherly lady recommends the Pork Belly Confit and the Chili Crab Pasta – they’ve been serving them for 8 years apparently. My pick was definitely the pork belly, no doubt about it. If I see beef cheek or pork belly, I’d always go for them. Interestingly, to help my new friend in selecting a main, she said that salmon is salmon (however it’s cooked) so why not try the pasta or pork belly? πŸ˜€ I found that remark pretty hilarious.

Anyway, my new friend ordered the pasta. I think the sauce looks legit. I’ll try it next time. I don’t usually ask to try food that people I’m not familiar with have ordered. If it’s my darling I’m dining with, I’d just go ahead and swop plates. Haha!

joan bowen cafe chili crab pasta

The pork belly I ordered was a little too salty, but I liked the crisp on one side – so sinful and so delightful. Some parts were a little dry and tough, but overall, pretty satisfying. The pineapple salsa was yummy, and I enjoyed the salad on the side too. A pity the mashed potato was a little dry and flaky.

joan bowen cafe pork belly

As for dessert, we had the tiniest oreo cheesecake I’ve ever seen. I took it out of the mini cupcake liner and balanced the tiny confection on my fork…

joan bowen cafe oreo cheese cake

While it may be small, I have to say the portion is just right. After a substantial lunch, the last thing you want is a huge portion of dessert to deliver you straight into a food coma. This one was perfect. It was the size of a mini icecream mooncake. And it tasted like vanilla ice cream between two oreo biscuits.

If you haven’t been to Joan Bowen Cafe before, why not schedule a visit soon? Visit their website, note the opening hours, and make an online reservation. πŸ™‚

Pizza Hut’s Epic Cheesy Lava Pizza And Meet & Greet With Spiderman at NEX

Spiderman Meet and Greet at Serangoon NEX

I invited my neighbors to lunch with me at Pizza Hut (level 3 of Serangoon NEX) and try the new Spiderman-themed ‘Epic Cheesy Lava Pizza’ and the accompanying Spiderman-themed dessert. MyΒ atasΒ neighbor took one look at the pizza and went “How is this a Spiderman design?” but she spoke too soon ‘cos that is one epic cheesy, tasty and thoroughly enjoyable pizza! As for the “Spiderman dessert”; let’s just say that ‘desserts’ spelled backwards is ‘stressed’. πŸ˜€ It was one of those rare times I took one bite of dessert and one bite was all I took. Haha! This kiddo got it right: the pizza is delicious!

Pizza Hut Epic Cheesy Lava Pizza

So what’s on the Epic Cheesy Lava Pizza? There’s fried chicken, turkey bacon, pineapple, capsicum, and some basil (?) leaves, I think. There’s also black pepper mayonnaise, cream cheese and a “web” of creamy cheese sauce surrounded by the cheesy lava crust.

It’s SO cheesy! πŸ˜€

Price: $25.90 regular, $30.50 large. Additional charges for delivery / takeaway)

Pizza Hut Divine Apple Tart

The Spiderman-themed dessert is their “Divine Apple Tart”, which features a Granny Smith apple tart on a chocolate sauce “web”, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some strawberries. Strangely enough, the ice cream looked like mango ice cream, but tasted somewhat like vanilla ice cream (but not quite). All in all, a very strange dessert I wouldn’t order again. But the kid absolutely LOVED it. I cannot fathom why.

*Note: Children under the age of 10 get to dine for FREE with any ala carte mains ordered. Their all-day kid’s menu features pasta, lasagne, pizza and spaghetti served with Milo. This offer is NOT valid on the eve of PH and PHs.

Kam Long Restaurant in JB (ι‡‘ιΎε’–ε–±ι­šι ­) – What’s All The Fuss About?

kam long curry fish head

He said it was near City Square, so we set off on foot to look for thisΒ Kam Long Restaurant which supposedly sells really good curry fish head. But we were walking in the wrong direction so it took a while (and help from some kind Johoreans) before we found the restaurant which is located across the road from a Hindu temple. Apparently, it’s really not too far from City Square but you have to get your directions right first – don’t just blindly follow the unit numbers along the same street. And because we got there just before noon, the queue wasn’t too long yet. Just a group of 4 ladies ahead of us in the queue. But it was’t the case after we were done with lunch.

Singaporeans and Malaysians alike seem to love to queue here. As per the instructions from the bosses of a motor vehicle repair shop, just “look for the Hindu temple, and the shop with the queue outside is the one selling curry fish head”.

There it is:

kam long curry fish head jb

There are two levels. I suppose those who look young or able-bodied are quickly dispatched to the upper floor.

Up the stairs you go… *you might want to hold your breath here as the smells are funky*

kamlong curry fish head

Then you’ll find yourself seated on plastic stools, and immediately asking for a cold drink (100plus and Coke are favorites here). And then you wait…

kamlong curry fish head jb

We waited for over 20 minutes for our food to be served while other folks who arrived later than us got to enjoy their curry fish head before we did. Why? Because we had ordered extra veggies and beancurd skin, and apparently these additions take extra time to prepare? That was the “explanation” given to us by a guy who looked like he could be the boss’ son. But I didn’t quite buy this explanation as the veggie and beancurd skin were already in the regular (claypot) dishes of curry fish head. We’d only asked for extras on top. How come that means we need to wait an extra 15 or 20 minutes as compared to the ladies who stepped into the shop ahead of us?

Ridiculous.

So, folks. DO NOT order anything besides your regular claypot dish of curry fish head, ‘cos you will be made to WAIT and WAIT and WAIT.

Taste-wise, I really don’t know what the fuss is about. The curry tastes slightly sweet. And yes, eaten piping hot with the white rice, it sure hits the spot. But it’s nothing to write home about because on its own, it lacks oomph. Some added spice would be good (though I wouldn’t dare to order an extra spicy version for fear of a longer wait). It’s like Katong Laksa without the fiery chili paste, know-what-I-mean? It’s just… somehow lacking.

Like I said to him… why read those food blogs then rush down to the place ah? The standard might have dropped after the influx of customers (aka blog readers). I don’t mind the queuing… but the food had better be good! But for the price, I guess we cannot complain. RM34 lunch. That’s like S$12?

Unforgettable Breakfast At S99 θ™Ύι’ηŽ‹ In Taman Pelangi, JB

Taman Pelangi θ™Ύι’ηŽ‹

If you ask me for recommendations of ‘cheap and good’ breakfast options in Singapore, I really don’t know what to tell you. Food here can be pricey, and may not even taste good enough to warrant their pricing. But just across the Causeway, there are so many options to make breakfast an indulgent affair. About a 5-minute walk away from our low-cost “Airbnb” are rows of coffeeshops with hawkers selling everything from ‘wanton mee’ to fried beehoon. I walked past a particular prawn noodle stall and that delicious aroma told me I HAD to dine there. We continued checking out all the other stalls along that stretch and also across the road, then made our way back to this stall: S99Β θ™Ύι’ηŽ‹.

Prawn Noodle in JB

He opted for the prawn noodles with pork ribs, while I was happy with just the prawn noodles only. πŸ˜€

My bowl of prawn noodles cost just over S$2, and it had fish cake, sliced pork, lots of fried shallots and also half a hard-boiled egg! Egg in prawn noodles? Yum! And that broth was a heady mixture of sweet and spicy – so delicious. And instead of chili padi, we were given chili paste. How fortunate we are to be able to sample different versions of the same humble dish of prawn noodles. The way hawkers in SG and JB cook the same dish can be remarkably different. It’s just like how our Hokkien mee here tastes so different from the Malaysian version.

S99 θ™Ύι’ηŽ‹

I ordered a soya bean beverage at the same coffeeshop, and together with the prawn noodles, it made for a really filling, very satisfying breakfast. If only everyday could be like that. πŸ˜€

The Hotdog Bar: Seriously SEDAP Beef Burger at KSL Mall in JB

the hotdog bar

We had lunch today at The Hotdog Bar in KSL mall. In the past, we’d always walk past this eatery after we had taken our meals because it’s not in a prominent location in the mall so it won’t be the first place you spot (after a visual scan upon entering) nor does it look so memorable that you won’t forget to come by first the next time you visit KSL. I say this only because I spotted a wine bar in JB that’s called “Fat Cork”! LOL. Now it’s in your brain, you won’t forget it either. Muahaha! Interestingly enough, I prefer the burger I ordered, as compared to the hotdog bun he wanted to try. Maybe they should name this place ‘The Burger Bar’ instead as they serve up some mean beef burgers!

This burger looks so harmless, right?

ksl the hotdog bar

It’s actually their Mozzarella Burger. It has a “homemade patty” (really? They make the patties themselves?) – choose from either chicken or beef – and lots of “premium mozzarella cheese”. Apparently, if you pull it apart correctly – down the middle – you’ll see the stretchy strands of cheese…

I wanted to be the one taking the photo, so this happened instead:

the hotdog bar burger

Just take my word for it that it is REALLY cheesy. OMG so sinful! And I almost wanted to order chicken instead of beef ‘cos it is more environmentally friendly (raising chickens produces less greenhouse gas) but I just really like beef so… GREAT CHOICE! πŸ˜€ *I don’t have air-conditioning at home so that’s my excuse. Also, I have to add that the beef was so tender. And it’s not in one big slab; it’s more like one of those meat patties my mom makes which are crispy at the edges but fall apart easily. Delicious! The burger was pretty big, but if I order it again, I am definitely going to eat it all myself… slowly.

Here’s their menu if you’d like to have a peek:

the hot dog bar ksl menu

I’d love to try the “Singapore Chili Hotdog” next time. A hotdog with Singapore Chili Crab sauce sounds sedap to me.

And upgrading our meal to a combo sure made a lot of sense. For just Rm 4.50, we get french fries and a cup of lemonade.

This is the Hawaiian Hotdog he ordered:

the hot dog bar ksl

Hotdogs and pineapples just don’t quite go together, if you ask me. But beef and cheese sure do! πŸ˜€ Order the burgers instead.

Psst: This meal cost us just Rm33.30 which is about S$11. *gasp* I know what you’re thinking too. Go try this soon! It’s worth the journey into JB. πŸ˜‰

The Hotdog Bar is located on the Ground Floor of KSL mall. You can find them on facebook as well at ‘thehotdogbarjb’.

Scoop Burger: Muslim-Owned Halal Eatery At Kallang MRT

kallang mrt scoop burger

As I was in the area yesterday, I used the Fave (a.k.a Groupon) app to find a deal for dinner. And Scoop Burger was it. I don’t usually have makan at or near Kallang MRT so I didn’t even know this eatery existed (thank you, Fave)! For $8.50, I received a beef burger, 2 sides and a drink. There was a Malay couple (I suppose) manning the shop and I was the only customer having an early dinner then. Seated on one of the bar stools facing the bus stop and the main road, with the duo bantering in Malay behind me, it felt like I had entered a Malay family’s home – very cosy, very homey.

scoop burger

I guess one word sums up the burger: hearty. After eating one, and possibly downing a glass of Coca-Cola *burp*, you’ll be feeling full for the next couple of hours. The burger buns are a little dry so I guess that’s why there’s so much sauce. I asked for mushroom sauce with my beef burger, but I think there was probably mayonnaise and some other sweet sauce too. Like one of those burgers you can get at pasar malams, or anywhere Ramly burgers are sold, be prepared for a dripping mess if you pick up the burger. I used the teeny weeny set of plastic cutlery provided to cut up the burger in a bid to reduce the possibility of said mess happening. The mashed potato was decent. I brought the nachos home for my nacho-loving partner to enjoy. (I don’t like nachos very much)

Somehow, I was drawn to the colorful display of beverage cans on the wall. And in case you were wondering, I did not order Coke. I had mineral water instead. Too much sugar and I’ll have a “food coma” after.

scoop burger kallang mrt

Here’s the Scoop Burger menu for your reference:

kallang mrt scoop burger menu

scoop burger menu

I didn’t see any other food stalls at Kallang MRT. I thought there was a Mr Bean outlet, if my memory serves me well. But it seems like everything else has shut down except for Scoop Burger which has been in operation (according to the Malay dude) for a year and a half. If you’re in the area, go in and support this small business! πŸ™‚

I like Groupon / Fave very much as it serves as encouragement to venture into new places. What I’ve also noticed, unfortunately, is that the merchants who choose to advertise via such websites are either (1) new entrants (they’ve just set up shop and need to tap into Groupon’s database of customers), and to get the word out, or (2) those struggling to keep the business afloat. Because of this latter group, many Groupon vouchers we’ve purchased had to be refunded because the businesses had already folded by the time we went by – such as the Milkissimo gelato shop at Nex.(They sell bubble tea now)

It’s a little upsetting that I have no Malay friends. Come to think of it, I’m not even sure why. I do have one pal who’s Indian and I make sure I pop by his place for Deepavali every year when he invites me.

And there are certain things we don’t realize immediately when it comes to race + food. Such as when a new coffeeshop opened near my place and we saw all the Malay families seated in front of the Western food stall run by a Muslim man. The majority of food stalls in the new coffeeshop are run by Chinese folks and are not Halal certified. What does this mean? While us Chinese folk can order from any stall we want… there’s only 1 stall which can serve the Malay community. I guess this is also why halal food blogs do well here in Singapore – that’s a niche which serves a real need. Many people like to eat out, but few notice that our Muslim friends may not enjoy the same convenience that we do.

IJOOZ: Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice at 2 Dollars A Cup!

ijooz fruits vending pte ltd

Yesterday, I enjoyed my third cup of IJOOZ orange juice. Strictly speaking, it was my second cup because there was a most unfortunate incident with the first one. I first spotted the IJOOZ vending machine at Fortune Centre when I was there for vegetarian food. And because my pals and I were heading to the Singapore Discovery Centre after our meal, I kept the juice in my backpack so I could drink it later in the day. Somehow the cup got crushed and my backpack smelled of orange juice for DAYS! The next two times, I made sure I drank the juice IMMEDIATELY. Haha! Got cup #2 and #3 at another vending machine located withinΒ SAFRA Punggol‘s gym. πŸ™‚

I think it’s a really good price. The juice from 4 oranges* goes into each cup, and yes, it may not fill the cup to the brim, but hey, it’s $2 only! And there’s no ice, water or sugar syrup added. But Singaporeans just love to complain. I visited IJOOZ’s facebook page, noted some complaints about the juice not filling up the entire cup and could only roll my eyes. I feel sorry for the boss. After investing in all this technology, and paying for the rental of the space and the electricity to run these machines, and the maintenance, and the sourcing of fresh oranges daily… and people want to complain that there’s not enough orange juice for $2. I suggest they head to the market, buy oranges, and go home and squeeze the oranges themselves. πŸ˜› Alternatively, consider making the ijooz cups smaller, so the juice from 4 oranges will always be sufficient to fill the cup to the brim!

*Update: I’ve heard from IJOOZ. Apparently it could be 3 or 4 or even 5 oranges depending on the oranges used that day. (I always counted 4, so I’ll certainly be looking out for #5 from now on). Also, I forgot to add that I’m impressed this company gives away oranges to charity – those oranges which they have deemed too small or too big or that have blemishes. I think it’s a great idea! Prevent food waste and also delight some folks! πŸ™‚

fruit juice vending machine

I think kids will certainly enjoy watching the process. The oranges roll down, get squashed, the peel gets disposed of, and the juice flows into the cup. And come to think of it, the seeds get removed too! πŸ™‚ How can anyone complain when it costs just $2 and saves you all the time and effort in buying oranges and squeezing out their juice?! Oh wait…

πŸ˜€

orange juice vending machine

ijooz orange juice

And I found this post on the company’s facebook page. Apparently, people want to know if the oranges are washed beforehand.

ijooz oranges

Picture from ijooz’s facebook page

“People always wonder if we wash our Oranges — Well, every orange that goes into our machines are firstly hand sorted, then put into our high pressure jet and brush roller machine, to get rid of the wax and other impurities on the skin. After the wash, they are dried and placed into our chiller room. They will stay there till our operation teams takes them out and topped up into our machines island wide daily.”

~

If you haven’t tried IJOOZ’s orange juice, go find a machine near your home or office! πŸ™‚ It’s refreshingly cool, might have a hint of sourness (just like when you eat an orange) but is largely sweet, and gives you more than your daily requirement of vitamin C. We need just one orange’s worth, and the rest gets passed out via urine. So, feel free to share the orange juice with a loved one! And please, for goodness’ sake, don’t complain about the amount of juice lah. Have you bought a pack of potato chips before? The chips constitute probably 20% of the bag – go complain about that instead! πŸ˜›

Kim’s Place: Forget The Hokkien Mee, Order The Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken Instead

Kim's Place Hokkien Mee

You’ll probably know Kim’s place because its owner is famous for frying hokkien mee while wearing a gold Rolex. I haven’t seen him in action yet though. But I’ve been to the outlet that’s not air-conditioned (like your regular kopitiams) and the atas one with air-conditioning and rather snotty staff. If you want to try good Kim’s Place Hokkien Mee, go to the outlet at Jalan Eunos (no air-con lah), but if you’d like to try the other dishes they offer, you can dine in air-conditioned comfort at their restaurant in Joo Chiat Place.

The Hokkien Mee you see in the picture above looks good… but tastes so-so. It’s coffeeshop standard. Absolutely nothing to shout about.

The drinks were more than decent. Go ahead and order their water chestnut and barley drinks. They’re really gao, unlike the watered down versions you get everywhere else.

Kim's Place review

Sambal Kang Kong – decent, but definitely eat this with rice πŸ˜€ (*Oh man, now I’m hungry)

Kim's Place Sambal Kang Kong

Skip the assam curry fish head. So watered down and mild. Rather disappointing. And there’s not enough meat to share among 4 people. 😦

Kim's Place Assam Curry Fish Head

The oyster omelette was good, especially ‘cos the oysters were huge. πŸ˜€ (*Aiyah I really can’t do this food blogging thing at night; so hungry…)

Kim's Place Oyster Omelette

And for the best dish we tried that day: the Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken! πŸ˜€ Spicy yet sweet, crispy yet tender. My goodness! Why didn’t I dabao some home?!

Kim's Place Crispy Thai Sauce Chicken

I think it’s a good thing to be known for just one particular dish that you cook really well. However, quality control is SO important when the business expands and there are multiple outlets.

Also, it’d be really nice to meet the Rolex Uncle at least once. πŸ˜€
