So I thought I have a quick bite before having to go for a fair that goes on during dinner time..
I just went nearby to marina square and decided to eat something Japanese so I found this restaurant that is a seems to be a sub chain of waraku,
And ordered my self
Katsu Curry Rice
And you can customise your own kind of curry and add side dishes! So I ordered as a side dish
Verdict: I don’t think I will return here.. The curry was like fruity? I didn’t really like it.. And the mushrooms were a little over fried ..

Marina Square Shopping Mall
Another trip to gastronomia to buy some sweetness back to the family 🙂
So I bought this for my parents:
And this for myself
Verdict: 3/3 of us won’t buy this ever
Pound cakes : the cake was not very moist – it was in fact dry and too sweet for my parents. They prefer those from Fredo Galaxy instead.
Nutella cake : it was too sweet for me too and got very ‘sick’ after making my way 1/4 through it. The nutella was not as thick as I liked it, tasted more like a hazelnut cake slice I think I will just stick to the yoghurt crumble instead 🙂
1 Kim Seng Promenade
Troops and I decided to try a different place to satisfy troopie mother’s craving for local food and we all met at old kallang airport road 🙂
So we ordered quite a fair bit to share..
All of this ordered from this store
And of course from the famous lao fu zi
And to round off dessert, I let them try Lao ban, but I found another stall that I thought tasted better than Lao ban – thicker in their bean taste
Verdict: 3/5 of us will return. I will definitely return for the char kuey teow and the beancurd. The hokkien mee is the top dish liked by the troopies.. But the carrot cake and oyster omelette is a little disappointing..
Troopie mother and her friend wanted to go sing karaoke but we found out that the place had closed down hahaha so we decided to go have a snack and chillax instead 🙂
So we walked towards wheelock since troopie mother was craving for Japanese desserts.. So we ordered to share:
And for myself because I was hungry
Verdict: 3/3 of us will return. Apart from the layered cake that was not as yummy as we thought it looked.. Looked nicer in the picture than it tasted.. sesame beancurd was very wobbly and “QQ” 🙂 a favourite of troopie Melissa 🙂 the green tea parfait was delightful according to troopie mother 🙂
Was a nice catch up session 🙂

501 Orchard Road,
As a farewell to our dear troopie Shu aka magical panties, so we went to this restaurant as reccomended by troopie alicia and mermaid
And a peak inside this garlic themed restaurant:
So we ordered to share between us :
White Sauteed Fresh Mussel
Dracula Killer : Soft Bread Served in Olive Oil and Anchovies
and the mains, arranged in the order of likes:
Garlic Snowing Pizza
Dancing Salsa Rice with beef
Gorgonzola Cream Pasta : Creamy Gorgonzola Cheese with scallops and king oyster mushroom
Verdict: 6/6 of us will return here. The appetizers were very well liked by all of us. I thought the way that the garlic dip was presented was very playful. The names of the dishes as well are very creative with a playful touch. Taste wise, we were not disappointed. Rich in garlic flavours and well combined. I particularly liked the pizza and the rice – I thought the sauce for the pizza was very unique – it was like creamy but not too creamy ..a little to the sweet side, and the rice initially felt like a pepper lunch mix yourself kind of hot plate rice, but the lady that mixed it for us was very thorough in her job, and the sauces in the rice was very flavourful. The lobster pasta was also another well liked, not too heavy on the cream. The other pasta however, I think we were all not used to the type of cheese that was used to cook it .. it tasted to me alot like an overdosage of blue cheese .. hahaha .. but after a while, it was just abit too much.
Mad for garlic
Block 3B, River Valley Rd,
Troopie beaties and I decided to go check out this ramen place ..
Its been on our “we should try it” list, and after a long while, here we are!!!!
The place is really small and crammed! So be prepared to queue at peak hours 😉
We sat at the counter near the ‘open kitchen’ and the best part about this place, there is free flow of eggs! Yes!
And this is how you place your order:
So then I ordered,
And troopie Beaties ordered:
Verdict: 2/2 of us don’t think we will be returning… For me, I felt that the broth was just abit too thick for liking.. And the after taste of it was just hmms.. Abit on the oily side, but char siew was nice
So for a family of Sunday lunch, we headed down to old hong kong at novena square for a dim sum fix- I must add that nowadays in Singapore, for Chinese Sunday lunches, it’s like impossible to get places unless you have made a reservation!
Verdict: 3.5/6 of us will return. Somehow this place is very well liked by my parents and uncle P & auntie M . But my bro and I didn’t really like this place. We felt that the standard did drop a little .. so was a little disappointing for us .. no special favourite dish, but ok, guess we couldn’t really have much of a choice since we didn’t make reservations. Nonetheless, a friendly neighbourhoodish dim sum
