Not for lunch.....

There are meals that are much more suitable to be taken for breakfast as compared to lunch. And here's an example of one of them...

'Vegetarian Fried Been Hoon'(Rice Vermicelli)
This appears to be one of the few vegetarian stalls that are located inside
this market. How should I put it.... Though the plate of 'Fried Been Hoon'
comes with a big variety of ingredients('Mock Meats', 'French Beans', 'chillies')
but the portion isn't big enough to satisfy my appetite during lunch time. On
top of that, the 'Fried Bee Hoon' is a bit too dry for me, perhaps I'm a bit
too used to the 'wet' vegetarian 'Fried Bee Hoon'. My favorite ingredient over
here would be the 'Fried Spring Roll' that I have topped up. Not only it's
crunchy outside, the good mix of vegetables inside made it pretty tasty too.
Best of all, the Spring Roll ain't too oily, which makes it reasonably good. :)

So where can you give the 'Spring Roll' a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'Ji Xiang'(吉祥).
It's hidden inside 'Clementi Market and Food Centre'.

  • Opening Hours:

For the sake of Winning...

For the sake of winning, what are you willing to sacrifice? Is it time? Health? How about Money? As for myself, for the sake of delicious delicacies, I don't mind 'sacrificing' money...

Over here they are providing 2 different types of 'Japanese
Tonkatsu(breaded pork cutlet)' sauce over here. The first would
be the sweet version and the second would be the spicy version.
And frankly speaking, I can't really tell the difference between
the 2 different types of sauce. Besides for that, they also have
several other types of seasoning to go with your meal.

'Premium Black Pork Tonkatsu'
I can easily point out several good points about the set meals
that they are serving over here. For a start, the rice, cabbages
and the 'Tonjiru'(Japanese soup which has a good load of meat
and vegetables) that comes with the set meal are refillable. Even
though it's slightly a bit salty but the tasty bowl of soup is
a big (+).

You can choose to enjoy the set meal with a bowl of 'White' rice
or a bowl of 'multigrain' rice. Though it's probably my first
attempt to it but it isn't that bad too. It can really blend in
pretty amazingly.

This beautiful, thick and sweet lump of meat is satisfying.
Besides for the crispy outer layer, the chewy meat simply makes
things better and better. WoooHooooo.....

'Oyster Katsu'
The 'Tartar' sauce that comes with this is pretty thick and
sweet. And I would strongly suggest that one shouldn't dip
and scoop out too much sauce in one go. However, besides for
the fact that it blends in with the 'Katsu' nicely, it blends
in with a bowl of rice nicely too. :)

'Almond Pudding'
This comes with a nice 'Red Bean' fragrance, but the fragrance
of 'Almond' is even stronger.

The name of this restaurant would be 'Tonkatsu & Sake Bar TONZAEMON'.
It's located on level 1 of 'CHIJMES'.

Opening Hours:
  • Lunch: 11:30 - 14:30
    Dinner: 17:30 - 22:00

Not quite the diy pizza that I'm looking for...

Ever since I have tried the wonderful restaurant that prepares and serve 'D.I.Y' pizza overseas, I was trying very hard looking for similar alternatives in Singapore...

'Alt. Wings'
This do create small sparks in my mouth. However, it still has a long way to go if they
are thinking of outdoing the 'Buffalo Wing' that gives one a spicy sensation.

'Dangerous Diego'
I wanted to give the 'D.I.Y' pizza over here a try, but seriously the price that one
would be paying for a customized pizza over here is simply far too ridiculous. I was
calculating it myself. If I choose the ingredients I want, I could easily break the
S$30 mark.

But in the end, after giving it some thought, I decided to give one of the creations
over here a try. Covered with lots of reds, this pizza isn't that bad after all. For
a start, the pizza over here doesn't comes with the super thick crust, which is a
big (+). And depending on the nature of the ingredients, they might be throwing in a
generous or a moderate portion of it into the pizza. Last but not least, though the
size of the pizza ain't that big in size, but the nice sweet taste of the cheese is
pretty good. Even though the pizza isn't as spicy as the 'Wings' but the chewy touch
is definitely there. :P

So where can you give the pizza a good try?
The name of this restaurant would be 'alt. pizza'.
It's located at 'Suntec City Tower 4'.

Sitting next to a Tuk Tuk Cha...?

And nope, you don't need to go all the way to Thailand to have a meal next to a 'Tuk Tuk Cha'(Thailand's iconic transport vehicle). The same move is possible in Singapore too. :D

Left: Thai Milk Tea
Right: Homemade Lemongrass
Extreme opposites. For the Thai Milk Tea, the overpowering sweet taste simply makes it
irresistible. One could easily wipe out the whole cup in 1 sip. On the other end, the
Homemade is the kind of drink that could bring one out of a sleepy mode in 1 single sip.
The overpowering refreshing taste simply makes it a bit too crazy...

'Tom Yam Toast with Chicken Floss and Egg'
Hidden inside the toasted bread are a nice mixture of Tom Yam spread, topped with
'Chicken Floss' and 'Egg'. Though I'm not getting the fiery 'Tom Yum' sensation but
I'm getting a simplified 'Tom Yum' taste and a good mix of sweet ingredients. Not
too bad for a starter. :D

'Golden Toast'
The 'Golden Toast'. Though these are golden in color but they are not hard and
crunchy. In fact, they are crispy on the outer layer and fluffy inside. But that's
not the most indulging part. Once you dip the 'Golden Toast' into the different
types of dips, the real fun has just begin... Though they are offering different
types of dips over here but, I have ended up choosing the 'Homemade Pandan Kaya'
and 'Homemade Taro Kaya' a try. Both of them have this thick creamy texture and
I was scooping quite a big portion of it into my mouth. I personally find the
taste of the dips to be pretty thick and strong. Through these dips, I'm actually
getting the nice taste of 'Pandan' and 'Taro'. Not too bad for a snack.

So where can you give the snacks and drinks a good try?
The name of this place would be 'Tuk Tuk Cha'.
It's located inside 'Suntec City Tower 3'.
(See, there's a 'Tuk Tuk Cha' over here, though it's pretty much stagnant, but it
still have the looks of the 'Tuk Tuk Cha'. :P)

Another crazy Ice Kacang stall...

When one has no luck with a rainy day, one tend to turn to a good bowl of dessert for a chilling sensation. But this is a bit too....

'Coconut Ice Kacang'(椰糖红豆冰)
One might ask, what makes this different from ordinary 'Ice Kacang'? Let me get this
straight. They are covering the layer of ice with 'Gula Melaka'(Palm Sugar). And I
have listed this dessert as one of those that I would only be having once a month.
The extremely POWERFUL sweet taste is a bit too much for me.... TT.TT Besides of
overloading the consumer with a complete sweetness, the ingredients that are hidden
beneath the Ice Mountain isn't that bad too. Not too bad for a dessert stall.

So where can you give the desserts a good try?
They isn't really a name for this stall.
It's located inside 'Berseh Food Centre'.
