Food snaps

A photolog of the recent food that went into my little tummy.

Chicken porridge for the sick tummy.

The chicken is really tasty there, I must say, one of the better chicken rice stalls out there considering I am a chicken rice fan and pretty much critical about the chicken and the rice.

This meets my expectation.totally.

The chicken porridge ($4.00, i think) was amazingly tasty as I was expecting it to be quite bland. And oh boy, how glad was I when I realised it wasn't, considering I had a bad tummy and was even contemplating skipping dinner that night.

And their soup ($4.50) is packed with loads of ingredients. This was lotus, spare ribs and peanuts and there were generous servings of those ingredients, making the soup real tasty.

Their chicken rice ($4.00) is a tad more expensive than the usual chicken rice ($3.00-$3.50) from coffee shops. But I suppose you pay for what you get (:

I would definitely go back to patronise them more often if it is not that inacessible for me. Although it is situated near to Novena, I seldom pop to Novena as it isn't much a shopping haven for me :p

I think that there is a branch at thomson? But I have yet to try it there.

There's the oh so popular, Boon Tong Kee ( I can't remember if I have tried it ), Mandarin Hotel's Chatterbox ( My brother recently went and said it wasn't that very fantastic, but I've yet to try it as well). Okay that's the end of the list. I should really look at ieatishootipost wonderful list of chicken rice stalls. He actually blogged about 40 different ones. wow.

But they are so packed with calories, like an average of 600calories for a serving? OH GOSH, but what to do. I am still a fan of chicken rice

Verdict: Ditch the guilty calories and eat this!

Baby Crayfish Spagetti

With much thankfulness of GSS and TCC's one for one deal, I decided that we should not let down their marketing department and make full use of this treat. This time, I decided to try their new dish, Baby Crayfish Spagetti, instead of my first love, seafood aglio olio.

But it was quite a disappointment,as personally, i'm not a fan of tasting sweet flavours in my main dish and this dish kinda had a sweet tinge. And those tiny crayfish aren't exactly very special either, and I find the dish kinda creamy.

Verdict: I'm so going back to my first love.

Crumbed Mushroom Patty with Wild Mushroom

The boy ordered this. It looked kinda tiny in the menu, but the portion was pretty large when it arrived. And seriously, it tasted really special and good. I must say I was pretty impressed cos initially I was thinking, why did he choose this dish? I mean, how amazing can mushroom patty taste? But trust me, this tasted awesome.
At least at the outlet(Novena Square) that we patronised.

Psst: portion was generous here despite it been packed

Verdict: This baby is amazing. but I don't really like that piece of cheese there. It's kinda.. weird

Sanpou Ramen (Tonkonsu)

Situated at an area in the basement, it was one of the stalls that were still accepting customers even at about 9.30pm, which was why we decided to go there for dinner. Because I couldn't resist from window shopping amidst this GSS and thus, the stomach shall wait.

Honestly speaking, I didn't have very high expectations of this dish, somehow, but, this is really quite awesome. Although the ramen itself wasn't quite worth praising about, I really adore the soup, and the meat. Apart from the ramen that I savoured from Ippudo, I practically never finished the soup from anywhere else as I find that the starchiness factor increases with every mouthful. But I almost finished this, and this ($14.80++) was a tad cheaper than Ippudo's ($17++ for the dish I adored)

Surprisingly, not this. Apparently, the soup has been boiled for a good many hours to get that perfect taste and finished with black onion sauce. I was also half expecting the meat to be tough and chewy. On the contrary, it is soft and tender and I couldn't get enough of it.

Verdict: Try it and love it
