Soy Sauce Chicken at Lee Fun Nam Kee Chicken Rice And Restaurant

Lee Fun Nam Kee Chicken Rice And Restaurant. This is probably the most famous chicken rice store in Toa Payoh. Like who else has their own restaurant selling only chicken rice in Toa Payoh? Their signature dish is their soy sauce chicken.
The sauce for their signature soy sauce chicken was thick, good and flavorful, however the meat needs to be more tender. The char siew and roast pork was crunchy and good! The rice was okay and fragrant. The restaurant was spacious and airy with fans keeping the place cooling, instead of air conditioning.

Salmon Samurai (100AM) and YuBa Hut (Hillion Mall)

Salmon Samurai (100AM). I  love all things mentaiko! Here's 5 slices of aburi salmon coated generously with slightly charred mentaiko sauce and an onsen egg on a bed of udon noodles. The shop seemed a bit small with a lot of OL and OM flocking in for lunch.

YuBa Hut (Hillion Mall). Aburi Salmon Don. Perfectly flamed seared, topped with copious amount of tobiko and ikura and Japanese rice! Champion Floss Maki. Ummm.. think thick sushi with salmon and cucumber in between and drizzled generously with homemade mayo sauce and topped with chicken floss and ebiko! A bit expensive but so so so yummy! Must order if you’re at Yuba hut! The restaurant is quite big in size and wasn't crowded during lunch hour.

Unicorn Whoaffle at Hatter Street!

Crispy but fluffy #waffle with that extra unicorn magic~ featuring toasted marshmallow and lavender white chocolate ice cream. This is seriously so cute!! I went to the new branch at Crawford.

Not sure if i will be back to try other things coz it seems like this is the only instagram worthy food there. HAHA.

Hearty Chicken Stew at Thus Coffee

Thus Coffee. Hearty Chicken Stew. The melt-in-your-mouth chicken drumstick is really good!! There's also herbed potatoes and carrots. So so soft and tender! They also provide multi-grain bread for you to dip in the stew. Would have been better if they had more soup? I also had the Green Happiness - Apple, Bak Choy, Green Pepper, Celery, Lemon Grass and Spirulina. Its C6 by Gorilla Press. I don't have much to comment about the cafe as i only tried this, but the cafe is super spacious. The shop is also located near sembawang hill food centre.

Ivan's Carbina - Western food store that sells Rosti!

Thought i would write about this since i'm gonna be leaving my workplace at Woodlands soon and chances are low of me returning to eat this. I discovered this store through the burpple app and saw that they sell Rosti. TBH, i have never saw other western food store at coffee shop or hawker center selling this other than Marche. You have a choice to pair it with a main dish like chicken chop or sausages. They also sell a variety of other food items like the usual pastas, chicken cutlets, fries, etc. 

The sauces provided isn't a lot though but the rosti is really good. As you can see from the pictures, the exterior is crispy but not overly charred and the potatoes are quite soft inside. Very yummy! Do check it out if you're in woodlands or looking to try something new for lunch if you work in woodlands.

Recipe adapted from https://www.thespruce.com/






print recipe

Pad Thai Noodles
Ingredients
  • 8 oz./250 g. pad Thai rice noodles
  • 6 medium raw shrimp (shells removed)
  • 1 boneless chicken breast (or 1-2 thighs, chopped up into small pieces)
  • 1.5 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3-4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 green onions (sliced)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. dry roasted unsalted peanuts (chopped)
  • 2-3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 lime (cut into wedges, for serving)

  • 3 tbsp. rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 3-4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. fish sauce

Instructions
Toss and mix the chopped chicken with soy sauce in a bowl. Combine 'Pad Thai Sauce' ingredients together in a cup, stirring to dissolve sugar.Cook rice noodles in boiling water for about 6 minutes or according to the instructions on the packaging. Drain and rinse noodles briefly with cold water to keep from sticking. Heat a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Drizzle in oil and swirl around, then add the garlic. Stir-fry 1 minute.Add chicken and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add the shrimp, continuing to stir-fry until they turn pink and chicken is opaque (2-3 minutes). When pan becomes dry, add 1-2 Tbsp. of the pad Thai sauce - just enough to keep ingredients frying nicely.Push ingredients to the side of the pan (if ​the pan is dry, drizzle in a little oil). Crack egg into center and stir-fry quickly to scramble.Add noodles plus 3-4 Tbsp. of the pad Thai sauce. Using two utensils, lift and turn noodles with other ingredients. Continue in this way, adding more sauce every minute or two, until all has been added and noodles are chewy-delicious and a little bit sticky (8-10 minutes).Fold in green onion. Remove from heat and taste-test, adding more fish sauce until desired taste is achieved. Garnish with chives and coriander.

Homemade Heinz Beanz BBQ Burgers Recipe

Back with another #myeverydaymeal post. Hmm.. i posted this on my instagram sometime back, but i was too busy to update the blog due to exams. I am finally done with exams for this year! Also am really excited for my year end trip to japan and also new job next year! I was approached by the very kind people from wunderfauks who sent me so many Heinz products to try out and also to introduce the Kraft Heinz Rewards Programme. Made some homemade burger with Heinz Beanz BBQ sauce. This is actually quite easy to make. 

You only need to mix:
  • 1 diced small onion
  • 3 cups of breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup parsley 
  • Beanz BBQ sauce. 

You can make 4 patties with this. You only need to fry for 4 minutes on each sides. For me, I added all my favs which is cheese, ham, tomatoes, Heinz Hamburger Dill Chips and Portobello mushrooms. Also added Heinz yellow mustard and ketchup for that extra flavor. 

You can head to Mustafa, Cold Storage, FairPrice, Giant or Sheng Shiong. These are just some of the major retailers that you can buy from. 

Take a photo of the receipt and upload on the website to earn points. 

Every $1 spent is 10 points!! You can use that to redeem more NTUC vouchers so you can shop more Heinz products! 

Hopefully they can expand this out of just Singapore and Malaysia.

Making Egg Benedicts at Home

Hihi, i am back with another #myeverydaybreakfast post~ Here i am making poached eggs according to Jamie Oliver's video. I bought the hollandaise sauce from fairprice finest at the outlet at Katong. I used white bread instead of burgers. I also put ham and portobello mushrooms on top. According the video, you're supposed to cling wrap the eggs and cooked in boiling water for 8.5 minutes. The thing is it is difficult to tie the cling wrap together. I managed to get some nice eggs after trying 2 times. XD I sprinkled some red pepper powder on top coz it looks too plain.

Tai Cheong Bakery - Egg Tarts from Hong Kong

These egg tarts has been on my wish list for quite sometime now. So i have already tried the BAKE cheese tarts at Ion, it's time to try out the famous egg tarts from Tai Cheong Bakery. I have not personally tried the ones in Hong Kong so its not fair to do a comparison. There was also no queue when i was there in the morning. The custard center leans to the sweet side, while the crust is full of buttery goodness. $7.60 for 4 pieces. It comes with a gorgeous emerald box.

Bake Cheese Tart at ION Orchard

Hmmm.. i wonder why i did not try this in japan? dk the difference between the jap ones and sg ones so my review is solely based on this local version. I only ate 2 tarts without refrigerating, the rest are shared or eaten the next day. It has a soft cottony cheese center with a crispy outer pastry. Best to eat it when it's hot!

Dinner at Foxhole Cafe at Hougang

I went to foxhole cafe at Hougang for awhile before meeting up with a friend to attend some Buddha teachings class. It was enriching. haha. I didn't i will like it but it is not so bad as compared to the scripture reading where they made us stand up and bow many times. Anyways this cafe has a very beautiful unicorn mural on the second floor. You make your order on the first floor and make your way up to the second floor for your meal . I wonder why its unicorn instead of a fox? 

I ordered the Carbonara. My first reaction to that was how come portion so small? :( The presentation looks good with the poached egg in the middle. The sauce could have been more creamy and be more generous in their portion size. You can sit by the window and admire the view outside. It overlooks a huge field.

Waffles at Baby Moo Creamery

412y Moo Creamery is a relatively new gelato cafe at Toa Payoh. They took over from The little prince creamery. I don't remember which flavour of gelato i ordered but the waffle was surprisingly okay. The exterior maybe crispy and seemed hard but the interior is quite soft but needs a stronger buttermilk flavor. Overall i think it is not bad but it is quite hard to stand out these days with so many well established cafes around like creamier in Toa payoh which draws a lot of crowd daily.

Pancetta Fungi Pasta at EagleWings Loft

As you all know, i am a huge fan of pasta and i saw this review on this Pancetta Fungi Pasta at EagleWings Loft. I knew i had to try this! I went to school one day to work on assignments and this cafe was along the way wor, why not right? The cafe layout was rather narrow. haha. The al dente pasta was arrived in a waft of hot tantalizing smoke. The food may look very good but the taste isn't. It is salty AF.

Lunch at the Masses~

I came for the C&C pasta~ I ordered the FANCY 忧 lunch set and it allows me to choose between 3 starters, choice of egg, C&C pasta and Chargrilled Pumpkin. The C&C pasta is served cold and it features al dente angel hair pasta noodles drizzled in luscious lobster bisque with crab meat and topped with caviar. 
I also have a choice of 3 main dishes. Duroc Pork Belly or Pan-Seared Barramundi or Angus 200-Days Grain Fed Striploin (180g), I chose the Barramundi but it seems like i made the wrong choice. haha. It comes with Vegetable Bohémienne, Clams, Fig-Infused Clams Jus. The fish was oddly chewy and difficult to break apart. Not nice!

Breakfast at Botanist Singapore!

I think i actually had this before Antoinette. haha. I ordered the highly recommended Breakfast Platter and got them to change the corn to salad coz hard to eat corn with braces. I have nothing to complain about this well executed platter. The platter consists of bratwurst sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, hashbrown, salad, avocado, bread and framboise macker raspberry jam. Everything on it was good but i didn't eat the avocado. lol :x This cost $23 which i find slightly on the pricier side? But maybe it will make you feel better if you share it?

A good breakfast sets the mood for the day and here i am at Antoinette for breakfast~ I ordered the Antoinette's Breakfast. Choice of egg is sunny side up, any other option need to top up $. There's bacon and sausage, salad, toast, viennoiseries and coffee. Viennoiseries means baked goods fyi. No complains about this one. everything is good. :)

I also ordered the La Rose~ The desert is presented as a rose. It literally looks like the real thing. Ok, let me break it down for you.  La Rose - grand cru chocolate mousse, exotic caramel, almond nougatine, cocoa sponge, grand marnier, dark chocolate Chantilly. It basically taste like milo coz of the cocoa sponge. Looks beautiful but i wouldn't order this again. lol
