Fish n chips small $36. Chips go into fryer, fish fillet gets battered and into the fish fryer. Whole process takes 10 minutes and chips and fish go into a paper boat. I smother the whole thin in a thick layer of salt and malt vinegar (or non-malt condiment), just like I would do in England. But hold on. This is 30 degrees 95% humidity in Saikung. Good job they sell cold ones. The fish. No choice, just generic fish. No flaky cod, no plaice, no haddock. The gener...

Sunday night. Empty restaurant bar one table. And he was finishing off. Ordered the butter ramen and the fried rce set. The ramen came with the usual char siu and corn and a large knob of Hokkaido butter. The onions and spring onions aplenty. The soup was a white bone stock with white miso and garlic oil. It was strong, full of flavour just like the ones I've had in Sapporo. Surprised at the quality of the stock. The ramen was the curly yellow type and with the soup and...

Popped in for lunch previously for a chicken tikka kebab. Through th lettuce you can spot some chicken in there, wasn't a lot. But OK for $48 with a drink. Saturday went for some lamb vindaloo and naan. The naan was done just right, a little crispy, not burnt. The lamb was tender and with the spicey curry it was a mouthful. Good taste. There was excess sauce, so I aked them to pack it for me to take home. Chicken tikka was also tender, sizzling on its hotplate as it a...

Arriving at 11:40, it was easy to get seated. Ordered the white 叉燒拉麵, pork bone soup. black 叉燒拉麵, roasted garlic soup. The ramen was actually the thick type that you'd find in many other places and need to bite harder. The charsiu was thick cut, tender, tasty. The spring onion atop of that was plentiful and really went well with the soup. The white soup was very tasty, quite salty too, in contrast to my black garlic soup, which had less in body. You can taste the garli...

Sunday lunch. Arrived to join the queue before they opened. Didin't get in first round to had to wait 35 mins for the next. Haing got in, we quickly ordered the Kyushu ramen 九州拉麵、and charsiu ramen 叉燒拉麵, spicey miso. Watching the ramen chefs mix the soup and cook the ramen, I was impressed with their speed and efficiency. The ramen came very quickly and the toppings were quite generous. Having gone through most of the bowl, I found that there was still quite a bit left. ...

Have you noticed? The menu, the decor, the layout is exactly the same as Jordan Curry House aka New Dehli for some reason. With this thought in mind, I meandered in for lunch. Lamb curry set at $60, <gulp> 60? OK lets have it, even though the place was empty, but hey! I'm game for adventure. As it turned out, it was the usual fare. Boiled meat retrieved from a pot and covered in generic brown curry sauce. Order your meat, the curry will cover the taste. ...

Bombay's old location suffered from being next to Ah Lung and really expensive rent. The place was full most evenings but still the rent killed it. To my delight, they have re-opened on Temple Street. I went for my usual bellwether dish, the Seekh kebab. As I remembered it, it was moist, steamy succulent served atop cabbage and raw onions cooking on the hotplate. It came exactly as I remembered, except it was a lesser meal that it had been. At $60, that can be forgiven. ...

Being a small place on the ground corner of the OC2 mall, this place has fewer seats than my car. And when I visited there were empty seats available too. But still, I opted for take out. The Food Spaghetti Carbonara. A standing item on my must try meals. The bacon bits were plentiful, so too the mushrooms and these were blended in a creamy sauce that mixed well with the spaghetti. It lacked the parmesan taste that spells quality ingredients, but what can you do? The p...

I've been eating here for many years. So why have I not written a comment until now? Dunno. Must be laziness or the calm after a satisfying meal that leaves one just content to be alive. Well, defenitely not the latter. My staple is the doner kebab with salad. This luncheon meal has gone from $28->$32 -> $38->$50 today. So desu ne. Inflation. It happens. The lamb was as it always was. Superb. Crusty and soft on the other side. The salad was manly. ...

I went for lunch wanting to try khoon chen na praa, 蝦刺身. But it was off the menu, so I had the 海南雞飯. The set came with soup and drink, I had lungan ice. The soup wak OK, nothing special, but the chicken rice that followed was. Large moist, tasty pieces of chicken leg off the bone atop oiled rice. I usually eat all the chicken first with the tamarind sauce. And I did. Then I add all the sauces into the rice and eat that. The lady, having seen me do this and seeing t...
