So we headed off to akashi before preparing to go to Bangkok:)

So we ordered our usual:

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return! Mainly for the crab crouquette, the sushi, and the gyudon( beef slice rice)… The gyoza was a craving order but we were disappointed.. Taste wise was just .. Felt like frozen ones :/ .. But nonetheless, this is one of my favourite jap restaurants in Singapore 🙂

Dome

Went to the nearby dome and felt like having something sweet:)

I remember a friend telling me how awesome the apple crumble was, so decided to give it a try 🙂

Verdict: I would come back for this!! It’s different in that it’s crumble are quite soft? Not as ‘crunchy’ as the usual.. And maybe I say this more in a biased point of view but I like this hot and cold dessert combination 🙂 so thumbs up and no complaints my side 🙂

Kazoukutei

We decided to head down and have a late lunch while studying.. So troopie plonks and I decided to try this out:

From the menu, it seems like udon seems to be the specialty! And the prices are .. Let’s just say super student friendly? Hahah

So I ordered:

And to share between us:

Verdict: 0.5/2 of us will return. Ok to be fair, it’s really affordable and very student priced.. The curry udon was just sad though.. I had like beef bits? Literally… And the ‘kani’ sushi was like those mock crabmeat… :/ I guess maybe if we ordered the other things on the menu would have been better?

Pu Tien

We headed down to this place- a favourite dinning place my parents frequent and enjoy! I have blogged about visiting this place since my parents bought home for us to try their favourite dish! So they finally brought us along! Well me only 🙂

Pu Tien Lor Mee

20120807-215645.jpg

Stir Fried Yam

20120807-215657.jpg

Pu Tien Style “Qiang Rou” Soup

Verdict: 6/6 of us will return! But do remember there are 2 branches! so go to the main branch!

My favourite dish was the Yam dish, as well as the stuffed mantous! The squid was a new dish and it was quite well done – not too overcooked and rubbery! Didn’t really like the lor mee much .. and the soup .. but also appetizers wise, I think the pork slices and the century eggs were nice .. the bitter gourd was also something different and refreshing .. 🙂

Pies and Coffee

So then thought I have a quick snack before I commence my study session:
Headed down to this place to check out :

and a peek inside:

20120807-214331.jpg

So I decided to try something different:

20120807-214445.jpg

20120807-214503.jpg

Verdict: 0.5/1
I won’t order this again. Potato and laksa gravy somehow just doesn’t go together.. By the time I scooped to the bottom, the gravy has thickened? And the seafood taste is a little too strong and puts me off for my liking… The ambience here however is very nice for a chillax and relaxing hangout. Maybe I should have just stuck to their chicken pies instead

Close up

 

Verdict:2/2 of us will return! Well the mushroom risotto was a disappointment for me… I wished they had more mushroom stock inside it! It was too buttery for my liking… The crabmeat linguine was nicer though:) nicely balanced between tomato and cream sauce 🙂 the sauce for the calamari was also nice 🙂

 

Plain vanilla – revisited

I returned to plain vanilla bakery and fulfil my hazelnut cupcake craving.. Decided to buy back home some for he mentai monster since he mentioned he wanted a red velvet cupcake 🙂

20120807-212832.jpg

20120807-212845.jpg

20120807-212857.jpg

Verdict: 1.5/2 of us will return. Mentai monster commented on the cream cheese on the cupcake – he liked it but thought the rest of the flavours were ok. He hated the cinnamon. I also didn’t really like it. I liked my hazelnut. Chocolate chip was too sweet for my liking. Salted caramel was awesome 🙂 but chocolate banana was disappointing.
