My mum has been raving about this place,
she loves her waffles
so we ordered to share:
French Onion Soup
Butter and Jam
Verdict: 1/2 of us will return.
French Onion Soup: it was tasteless. I don’t think i really need to elaborate on it further.
waffles: considering this is the second time that my mum has returned, she mentioned how the first time around the waffles were much better -> in terms of the level of fluffiness and crisp. This time around both waffles were just too airy and not very crispy.
Damage: $15 per pax

My second visit here with the same trooper, following our so-so dinner. We visited this place before, and the waitress led us back to exactly the same place sitting at the same seats!!!!
So we decided to order something different from our past visit..
Trooper yuns was attracted by the appearance of this when she walked on and ordered
Ispahan: Macaroon with raspberry and lychee marshmallow
I ordered for myself just something simple
And a mocha
The ambience of this place is quite nice and chillax.. Especially on a rainy day! Just relax and chill – although I wished the tables were a little higher so its easier to eat.
Verdict: 2/2 of us will return.
It’s a very nice place for dessert and catchup.. And the mocha was pretty decent.
Troopie yun’s cake was exactly what she expected – but better 🙂 the raspberry balanced out the sweetness of the macaroon and the lychee flavoring very well, making it not too sweet overall in slicing through the sweetness.
My apple crumble was just simple – nice and more crumbly = yummy! Apples themselves were not drowning in thick syrup – so was pretty good I would say 🙂
And to end off
Happy birthday my dear trooper! Thank God we are still friends:) May we continue being friends for life 🙂

The common practice here it seems, is when a person leaves the company for good, they will treat everyone to an egg tarts or cakes. This gesture is just to show their appreciation towards their co-workers, as the term ‘shan shui bing’ is being used to express such a feeling.
That aside, I am an Egg Tart lover. I love the hong kong style of thick pastry egg tarts more than anything else, and i am glad to have found my love of my life at : Tai Cheong Bakery ( pleasantly surprised by my troopie)
Dont you think egg tarts look like sunflowers? So happy and welcoming? The best comfort food one could ever lay their hands on 🙂

So brother decided to give me a mine ‘farewell’ lunch before hopping on the next flight back to Singapore for good …
so we decided to indulge ourselves in …
a nice meal before take off ..
we ordered to share an executive lunch and some dim sum – ok while writing this post, it feels as if the 2 of us ordered everything off the menu .. almost everything
Sauces and tea settings
Xiao Long Bao
Crispy Toufu with Scallops
Special har gao
Baked Barbecued Pork Bums with Pine nuts
Steamed Squid and Zucchini Dumplings and Shrimps with lilybuds
Steamed Squid and Zucchini Dumplings
Baked whole abalone puff with diced chicken puff
Braised Star Farupa with Eggplant in Spicy Plum Sauce
Japanese Noodles with Minced Pork and Spring Onions in Soup
Overall, I only liked the soup, the abalone tart.. I didn’t think very well of the dim sum .. . I don’t think I will return back .. Only maybe for the abalone puff, soup the squid dumplings (something different from the usual).. the view was just fantastically amazing .. redeemed the dinning experience …
Man .. a sad meal before heading home for good .. nonetheless, it has been a good learning experience. 🙂

This is the king of all Hong Kong Ramen I have eaten.
My brother kept raving about this ramen place that he thinks is better than any other ones he has eaten so far in Hong Kong .. So I decided to go and give it a shot. He warned me that the queuing time is crazy, so I thought I go at an in-between timing, but I still ended up queuing for 1 hour before I could get a seat.

I think its pretty awesome!!! Will return to eat it again!!

Curry Beef Brisket Noodles!
I ordered the thicker noodles, the “e-min” (might have spelt it wrongly) .. But it resembled mee pok in Singapore.. well kinda one of the closest I could get and it went really really well 🙂
I will super miss this!!!! Super love it I will miss this super much! But I do hear that the queue get quite long .. I was quite lucky to be able to go at odd in between hours .. so .. and maybe because I was alone, so it was easier to get a place to sit 🙂
one of my favourite beef brisket noodles … 🙂 ahhaaha .. Why didn’t I go to this place earlier .. mannn -_-
