My Recent Eats

I haven't been blogging about personal life for a long time. This would be just a post to share which are the new restaurants I have been to lately.

Greendot # #01-08 Westgate

I was recommended by a friend to try this vegetarian restaurant and indeed it was not bad. The portions were big and ingredients were generously given. My mum tried the laksa which I felt it was a little too spicy for me. I had the herbal soup with brown rice and I had difficulty finishing by myself.

The Laneway Market @ 266 Tanjong Katong Road

HM and I headed to the WeFlea on 12th Sep and this is how we know about this beautifully decorated cafe. For main course, I had the Sous Vide Egss ($16.00) which consists mainly of hasbrown and poached eggs, I tried their signature Iced Earl Grey Latte which is not too thick to cause me palpitations. We shared the truffle fries with grated parmesan cheese which cost $12.00. There was no GST and service charge, the prices were affordable.

Hai Nan Hometown Curry Rice @ 505 Jurong West Jurong West Food Centre, #01-41

I have previously talked about this curry stall and I headed back with colleagues. Sadly the curry chicken was sold out. We had curry vegetable, curry fish and curry pork ribs. Yes they are all curry but the tastes are different. The curry fish is slightly sour probably due to tomato. The curry vegetables wasn't as thick as curry pork ribs. Overall, we still had our cravings satisfied.

The ladies and I had our dinner on 21st Sep at a ex-schoolmate's brother's restaurant. Some of their signature dishes were Manster Beef Burger, Roast Pork Aglio Olio, Spam Chips, OBG Wings and OBG Crabcake. Don't the names already made your stomach growl? I had the Roast Pork Carbonara as seen above. The carbonara was just right, not too thick tor a non-carbonara fan. The Spam Chips are a must try, super crispy and addictive. The restaurant only serves craft beers so you know where to head to for a night of chill?

Do You Prefer J or K?

If you follow me on instagram, you will know how much I love Japanese cuisine compared to Korean cuisine. At least every fortnightly, I would be posting pictures of either ramen, sushi or sashimi. In fact, I just had ramen and gyozya yesterday.

Notice how thick the Tonkotsu soup is?

And talking about their culture, I am pretty sure most girls would want to try on the traditional Japanese garment named kimono at least once in a lifetime. I have yet to get the chance to wear it but I definitely will if I go to Japan.

One thing that I noticed about Japanese make up, they emphasize more on their eye make up. Falsies and glittery eyeshadows to make their eyes look bigger and brighter.


Freshly breaded in-store with a special batter, these juicy wings are cooked to crispy perfection and coated in your choice of two bold flavours – choose between the Japanese-inspired tangy yet savoury Umadare and the Korean-inspired sweet and spicy Yang Yeum. Who will be crowned king of the wings? You decide.

Pick a side and be part of KFC’s greatest wing-off. Hashtag #kfcoishii to support Umadare or #kfcmashisoyo to support Yang Yeum on Instagram!

I vote for #kfcoishii. What about you?
