Xi Yan

Been awhile since I came back to Xi Yan. Did lunch here today and ordered the few dishes below:

Pregnant (dun remember what) fried rice


Not sure why it is named this way. Haha

Fried rice was decent, not wow-ing though

Jelly fish in sesame sauce


I really like this dish, I guess I really like jelly fish in general. Imperial treasure has a similar dish too. 


Truffle fried eggs with prawn 


I Thot this dish was pretty good. The truffle taste was mild but overall the egg texture was good. The prawn as well.

3 egg spinach


I really like the spinach. It's light and the eggs taste was not overpowering.

Chateraiser

FNot sure how many of you remember, when ion first started, there was a Japanese Swiss roll stall at the basement and they have a very awesome Swiss roll!  But business probably wasn't as good, it closed shop pretty soon. I was pretty disappointed coz it was quite good!

Today as I was at Isetan Shaw, I saw this cream Swiss roll that looks pretty good...


I bought a piece to try. It was indeed pretty good! 


It wasn't too sweet and I really liked the cream. The sponge cake was nice too.

The shop is by the isetan supermarket...

Taaizi Polo

I recently tried the 菠萝包 from this small and new bakery at Toa Payoh Central and it's so good! 

They serve a variety of polo bao and egg tart (both damn good)



Check out the butter polo bao... 


That slab of butter is just waving and smiling to me! Omg damn good!

And interestingly today, I saw a century egg puff 


Curious about how it taste like, I bought 3! Bunny liked it quite a bit! It has got ginger and lotus paste inside...

Rice and fries

If there's something I always order when I'm at rice and fries (aside from the Tom yam pasta), it's their escargots and risotto!

It's been awhile since I found a decent escargot and rice and fries one is great! Drizzled with olive oil ...


And I actually had dinner before heading down yet I couldn't resist ordering their squid ink risotto!


To me, squid ink isn't just serving a black coloured dish that doesn't have squid ink taste. A lot of places are doing it these days but not here at rice and fries. I love their squid ink! It's flavorful and just so tasty (if u like squid ink). I personally am a more 重口味 person and their risotto hits my spot!

And for Geor, their crab risotto is her favourite...


She is another one, also already had dinner but also couldn't resist. Their crab risotto is generous with crab meat and again flavorful with crab bisque like sauce. Love it!

De Burg

I have long heard about de burg (easily more than a year back) but they were previously located around bukit merah and now shifted to CT Hub.

I finally made the trip down today to check out their burgers. 

And being the usual greedy foodie as I am, we ordered 3 burgers! The warm chef gave us a free one and it was burgers glorious burgers!


The information that lead me to want to visit de burg in the first place was that they serve burgers with Nutella and peanut butter AND it's apparently yummy! So I zoomed it first to look out for such a burger. Apparently, my source was wrong or maybe it's just been too long ago, the burger was either with Nutella OR peanut butter. The Nutella one was with lamb patty and the beef one with peanut butter. Well, I don't take lamb so the beef one was an easy choice to make. Of course, it helped greatly that the burger is called Richmond, named after Don Richmond (I'm a big fan, he is so cute!).

And here's the Richmond 


The peanut butter was nicely spread over the bun and toasted. The patty was so good! It was juicy and beefy! They definitely nailed it! 

Geor had the Joe burg...


Comes with garlic mayo but aside from that we found it pretty similar to the Richmond.

And the chef strongly recommended his pork burger. He even took a side bet with us saying if we didn't like it, he won't charge us but if we did, we will have to buy him a drink. That's how confident he was - how could we not try it ya?


I actually can't rem the name of this burger but it came with cheese and chorizo. The pork patty was pretty good! Let's just say that I eventually did have to pay for my pork burger. Hahaha 

Overall a nice burger joint with a friendly chef. CT Hub is damn quiet thou, feels too quiet for businesses to sustain. Do head down to give ur support!

i really like geoduck for its crunchy texture.

as for why Jpot, love their laksa soup base. goes very well with the fried beancurd skin!

their variety of meat is also good. i also really like one of their pork balls with cheese!

Fart Tartz

Geor came with a special delivery!

Because i highlighted not to waste money on bouquets, she seeked alternatives and get me flower pots of desserts instead! and they look oh so lovely!






aren't they pretty??? She got them from Fart Tartz!

1 Expo Drive, #02-04

enquiry@farttartz.com



my little box here attracted lots of envy which i also shared the love...

















there are apparently different flavours. I think there's nutella oreo, matcha and a few other flavours. I didn't know until i gave out a few so i only got to try the nutella oreo.

They were so good. Smooth layers of cake, oreo bits, cream and nutella. Yummy! and pretty!
