we headed over to andersens for ice cream coz standard chartered sent me vouchers! i thought i could use both $10 vouchers. turned out to use both i had to spend $60 instead of $30. -.- so calculative. i feel so tio pianz! i hate fine prints!

our andersen's classic!

sharon and izzy's earl grey...

and the yummy banana bread with macademia ice cream...

Yomenya Goemon

today we check out yomenya goemon at citylink mall!

kaizhi recommended this but before we could try it together, she has flew over to usa!

the forgettable miso soup...

but the pastas are DAMN GOOD in my view!

first, i was totally spoilt for choice when i looked at the menu! i love their menu! its filled with pictures of all the items and even the price is damn appealing! each pasta is only about $12.90 to $14.90! so cheap!

i had so many items i wanted to try!

they also have 3 half and half sets although for each set, the choice for the half and half is fixed. i went for set C ($20) where it had a carbonara and a clam aglio... Saphy ordered the same set as me!

both were damn good in my view. both the pasta texture were good. its not overly soft and i like it this way.

the cream sauce was good! Izzy, Sharon and myself liked it. Saphy for some reasons didnt. haha

the aglio wise, i loved it too! Saphy and Izzy found it not spicy enough.

Izzy had a cold pasta which is with sesame sauce...

this is damn nice as well! its chilled and the sesame sauce was really good!

sharon's pasta with some mentaiko sauce (i think, im not sure)..

which is also pretty good! i sense i will be back here quite often!

and our set comes with choice of a drink or dessert which we chose dessert!/

saphy chose the cheesecake...

its pretty awesome!

i had the chocolate cake with ice cream...

which was just decent.

Ah Piaw Wanton Mee

and i got to have my ah biao wanton mee!!!

super miss!!

what i love most about ah biao wanton mee, is the noodles itself! very not me coz im the kind who would usually not touch much of the noodles/rice/bread. but in this case,t he noodles are just mighty tasty to me! i globbled it down!

and bernard who claims he was not hungry, couldnt resist the abalone noodles that he liked....

there has been some changes to this area. ah biao has opened up another shop replicating the abalone noodles shop beside. touting is very seriously done over here. quite scary!!

Wild Honey

arranged to meet the seafoodies to celebrate fishy's birthday at Wild Honey.

squiddy made reservations for the one at scotts square...

i was slightly late so they had already started eating.

i had a vegeapple juice...

and i shared a European with crabby. its eggs benedict with parma ham rolled around the poached egg and hollandise sauce...

the egg was pretty good. i didn't really eat the bread coz im not a bread person. overall its nice but not worth the $22.

but one thing is for sure, im not coming back here again if i can help it.

As you may already know, good food aside, im also all about service. I mean, we don't pay service charge for nothing. Also, i believe a big part of F&B is also about the service. People want to enjoy their meals. As Wild Honey would put it - No Place Like Home. You do want people to feel comfortable and enjoy their meal right? that's why you are charging a premium for your eggs and ham right? and thats why we suckers pay for it right? Den jolly well offer some good service.

fishy asked the person for a bowl to feed lil nano. The server told her they don't have bowls. fishy asked them " then how do you serve your soup? " when they finally relented and gave her a bowl. I mean SERIOUSLY, borrow a bowl is so hard on you??

you would make nano pissed off too!

and crabby actually bought cakes for me from a confectionary near her place....

its supposed to have pretty good cakes in baileys, martini flavours etc. So she said it taste better when its chilled so we requested for the server to help us fridge it. We did not even request to eat it here. We understand the no outside food allowed policy.

But, they told us no.

its just borrowing a little space of your big fridge for AWHILE while we complete our meal. i don't get it. which restaurant these days rejects such requests?

Got. Wild Honey lo.

I asked the person for the reason for such policy, he just said " our chef don't allow ". Fine. I'm sure Wild Honey will remain popular for quite awhile but i for one will not want to come back and pay for overpriced breakfast tagged with bad service. Taste is decent, decor is great but doesnt make up for the stuck up service in my view.

Pine Garden's Cake

crabby actually bought cakes for me from a confectionary near her place....

its supposed to have pretty good cakes in baileys, martini flavours etc.

the left one is called lychee martini and the right side one is called baileys. both are nice but the baileys one is nicer!

we had wanted to have Lei Gardens for lunch over at Elements Mall coz for the whole trip we didnt really have roast meats. We ended up having it at the airport...
