Xing Ji Ruo Cuo Mian

I love my bak chor mee (minced meat noodles) and when the topic of good bak chor mee comes up, this place is nearly always mentioned. But this stall is unique in that they only serve the soup version -

This cost $2.50 (I think it used to be $2). A pretty small portion but there's a $3 portion too. Very simple compared to your usual bak chor mee - mee kia (thin noodles) with a few meatballs and minced meat. But the soup is really flavoursome and the noodles is cooked to the right consistency.

Not bad, worth a try! But be prepared to wait, there's always a queue at this stall.

Century Village Seafood Fish Head Steamboat

YAY! Blogger is up and running so I'm back in business :D

Realised I haven't had fish steamboat since one of my first few posts on this blog so we went to try out this one.

They ran out of the fish we wanted so we ended up with garoupa (i think) with the steamboat for $38 -

Wasn't as great as the one I blogged about the last time but it's such comfort food that I couldn't help tucking into more than a few bowls of soup... soup was pretty flavourful and the fish was fresh.

Other dishes we tried here were pretty good too. The Home-style Tofu $12 was really soft and tasty -

The Prawn Rolls $8 were just ok -

A last minute addition was Cereal Sotong $10 which we just had to try coz it's the first time I've seen such a dish -

And it was pretty yummy! Didn't think cereal sotong would be a good idea but it surprisingly works... and of course I picked endlessly at the cereal bits.

An industrial park is a bit of an odd location for a restaurant, but that means parking is plentiful especially on weekend :)

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties...

I've been trying the last three days to upload pictures for my next post but haven't been able to - not too sure if it's a problem with the internet connection or the blogger website.

In any case, a food blog without photos seems kinda pointless, so bear with me while I try to fix this :S

Hope to be up and running again soon!

The Sweet Stone Parad'Ice

We were having dinner at Modestos and wondering what to have for dessert when Victor suggested this place, which happens to be opened by a friend of his. I heard about this place a long time ago but figured with all that hype there would be long queues so wanted to wait for a bit... then kinda forgot about it :P

We ordered the Royal Claypot Fondue Set $14.50 which comes with the chocolate fondue, an assortment of fruits (strawberries, grapes, honeydew, bananas), masrhmellow, waffles and two scoops of home-made ice-cream -

Quite an impressive spread right? There were five of us there and this was just nice... if you've had a full dinner before this. On an empty stomach, I think I could eat this on my own... Ok, maybe not :D

The chocolate was sweet without being excessively so... and being thick, it was very obviously good quality chocolate. The waffles (which was apparently authentic Belgian waffles) has more of a thicker, bready texture than we're used to but still quite yums.

What we could not stop raving about was the gelato... nothing I hate more than strawberry ice cream because of the artificial strawberry flavour, but this strawberry gelato was home-made and had plenty of actual strawberry bits in it so I really liked it. We tried a few more flavours and it was all good...

Good value for a good quality dessert! A new branch recently opened up at the Old Airport Road Hawker Centre so try that one if this location is not so convenient for you.

Fin Seafood Café

And so my journey of rediscovering fish and chips continues... we were looking for a place to have a quick lunch before watching a movie and settled on this place (coz we knew for sure there would something for Gerry the Pescatarian to eat here :).

We ordered the Calamari to share -

and I had the Fish and Chips Set Lunch which consisted of a soup...

Fish & Chips...

and dessert, which was tiramisu...

The fish and chips here was quite good! Again it makes me wonder why I stopped eating fish and chips. If I remember correctly, the set lunch was pretty cheap too. Service staff is a bit laid back but was prompt so no complaints... Good option for food in a mall where every other food place is pretty non-descript.
