REVIEW: CHEF KANG'S NOODLE HOUSE

Chef Kang’s Noodle House
Really excited to try out Michelin starred ⭐️chef kang's noodle house at TPY!
The noodle house is located within Jackson Square. It maybe confusing to find but you can ask around for the coffee shop. There's only 1 inside i think.. The coffee shop is quite spacious so no problem finding seats. Be prepared to queue but ain't no queue gonna stop me from eating nice noodles! Go early to avoid queuing!
Thin springy eggy noodles with fatty char siew that has a good caramelized finish and plump and substantial wontons!! The only flaw is that the sauce is a bit on the salty side.

REVIEW: ENG'S WANTAN NOODLE (TANJONG KATONG)

Eggy springy noodles with lean charsiew and small wonton. The wonton may be small but the fillings quite substantial la. The noodles don't have the alkaline taste at all which is good too! However, add the chili at your own risk wor.. it's very spicy one! Not sure if i will come here again but if you like noodles, this shop is the place to go to.

REVIEW: TAJIMAYA YAKINIKU FREE FLOW WAGYU

I was at Tajimaya yakiniku for their EAT ALL YOU WANT wagyu beef buffet. Umm.. unlimited wagyu beef for $49.90++. Worth it? VERY. This buffet not include wagyu ok.. you can have Tiger Prawn, Kurobuta Pork, Seafood, Sashimi and more! Just look at the beautifully marbled wagyu slices grilling on the charcoal grill. Pick up the wagyu with your chopsticks while the meat is still tender! On top of all the meat, you can also have the usual vegetables too. Enjoy the free-flow soft drinks too! Grilling your food ontop of the charcoal fire gives the food a distinct smoky flavor and it is so tantalizing. Go here for the menu.

#myeverydaymeal 51

First #myeverydaymeal of 2019! I want to make the blog bigger in 2019 so.. stay tuned for more updates! 

1) Wagyu Hamburg with Japanese curry! I used gruyere cheese on top of the wagyu. The wagyu was purchased from don don donki and they're so tender and has a nice crunch to it. I also used the soy sauce rice seasoning for my rice. They're also available in don don donki. 

2) Made a hot comforting stew with rice and they're so delicious!

3) Made a cream stew with seaweed rice. Was trying to experiment more with different photography styles so heres a picture of a "pouring" shot. 







REVIEW: EAT 3 BOWLS 呷三碗 (TAIWANESE CAFE) AT CRAWFORD LANE

Eat 3 bowls is a classroom themed Taiwanese cafe selling your usual Taiwan delights such as Taiwan sausages, intestine mee sua, braised pork rice and beef noodle. There were really cute classroom themed items all over the cafe like school bag hanged on the chairs, and menus that looked like textbooks. Their table and chairs really looked like the classroom kind and there were blackboards too, emulating the classroom scene. 
We ordered the same 3 bowl set coz we wanted to try a little bit of each. That’s 9 bowls in total!
🍲 Braised Pork Rice 鲁肉饭
🐔 Chicken Rice 鸡肉饭
🍜 Oyster Intestine Mee Sua 蚵仔大腸麵線
We also ordered 1 braised egg (溏心蛋) each. 
Not sure how authentic these are but the braised pork rice is very flavorful and the chicken(most likely sous vide) is very tender too. They are also generous with the portion too!! However the mee Sua is too soft for my liking.

REVIEW: CHAO ZHOU FISHBALL NOODLE

Another stall that has been around for ages.... this stall started in 1968. I'm not sure if they have been around in TPY all this while but.. who cares hor. LOL  
This fish ball at Chao Zhou Fishball noodle is seriously so good!! Expect "boing boing" and soft texture de fish ball. 5 is not enough! hahaha 
Aside from the awesome fish ball, I also had dry mee pok tossed in chili sauce. This stall is probably the most famous fish ball noodle in Lorong 7. Ya'll  will know how famous this stall is from the snaking queue they have.

REVIEW: LAU PA SAT FISHBALL MINCED MEAT NOODLES

Lau Pa Sat Fishball Minced Meat Noodles is located at Kim Keat Palm Market & Food Centre. They may not be the most famous one in TPY but they do command some queues during the morning when people come out for breakfast. I usually order the soup ones but decided to try the dry one with chili. The chili does pack a punch here~ The pork liver, minced meat, cabbage, bean sprouts, pork lard, meatballs, braised mushroom, shrimp dumplings and He Kiao completes the bowl of noodles. So many ingredients hor!! You have the option to choose between fish ball or mushroom minced meat. Another hearty option for breakfast here at TPY.

REVIEW: MING FA FISHBALL

Ming Fa Fishball started as a push cart in Chinatown back in 1946 and now fast forward to their third generation taking over. They also have their own factory making their own fish balls to ensure quality for their customers. 
We had the Bak Chor Mee with extra fu zhou fish balls and fried fish cakes. The springy noodles were tossed in vinegar and chili sauce giving the bowl of noodles a vinegary and mild spice taste. The fu zhou fish balls were bouncy and soft with a savory pork center. Nothing beats having a hearty bowl of noodles for breakfast! Fans of them can also go there for supper as they close at 5am!

REVIEW: AFFORDABLE UNAGI SET AT KAZAN JAPANESE CUISINE

Kazan Japanese Cuisine is located at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre. They have the most affordable Unagi set at $8. WHAT? :O
It was difficult to locate this shop as The Chinatown complex market is like a freaking maze la.. wtf 
They serve me a huge slab of Unagi in a long bento box. I thought that this was kind of underutilized as there were a lot of spaces? The unagi is glazed with their sauce and kind of glisten under the light, giving the surface a good glow. The meat was sweet from the sauce and very tender but there's so many small bones.. so it was abit weird when i was eating. The bones are totally edible though.
