Wan Chai Hong Kong Tea Room at IMM, Jurong East



This time I wanna try something from Wan Chai due to my friends recommendation, and I will mention it later. But we gotta queue before entering the restaurant since there were too many people in that restaurant.


Everytime when I pass by this restaurant there must be fully seated.

This restaurant has got kinda different system which all the customers need to pay the bill once order.

Before the main course, we had some side dish. The first one is "Crispy Silk Beancurd with Pork Floss". When the beancurd was served we had it immediately and... WAAAHH... It is too hot! The inner part of the beancurd was extremely hot! By I still love its nice smell.


Crispy Silk Beancurd with Pork Floss. $5.50

The second dish is "Prawn Paste Chicken". This is what my fren recommended. The chicken is crispy and it is little salty for me because of the prawn paste.

Prawn Paste Chicken. $5.50

Now is the main course, "Baked Seafood Rice with Wasabi Cheese". Maybe most of the wasabi lovers will like it. The rice is coved with cheese but it has thin wasabi smell, so the wasabi doesn't cover the taste of the seafood and cheese.


Baked Seafood Rice with Wasabi Cheese. $8.50

This is the one i had, which is "Baked Scallop, Salmon, and Asparagus Rice with Cheese". The only difference with others is the cheese used in this baked rice is original flavor.


Baked Scallop, Salmon, and Asparagus Rice with Cheese. $9

Then this is the most popular main course in the restaurant, "Baked Chicken Portugese Curry Rice". The rice is not only covered bt cheese but also curry, but the curry is not too thick, and it is acceptable by people. But one thing is I noticed there was excess water in the rice and thus affect the texture. And the portion seems too big for 1 person.


Baked Chicken Portugese Curry Rice. $8

Finally, we had some dessert. This is the "Silk Beancurd with Aloe Vera". I like it because there is no Aloe Vera smell and it match the silk beancurd.


Silk Beancurd with Aloe Vera. $2.80

Beside the food is served by the waitress, other things like taking spoons and sauces are all self-service. It can't be helped since the restaurant always full with people.

This restaurant also serves toast and other Hong Kong - Local fusion food which is popular. There is an ideal place to have simple and comfortable dinner. I would like to rank this restaurant as 3.5 stars.

Yakiyakibo @ Jurong Point



There is a Japanese Street in Jurong Point which consists of several Japanese restaurant, but most of these restaurant are crowded during dining period everyday. =_="'



The restaurant I dined with my friends was Yakiyakibo because this is the only restaurant not too crowded.






The restaurant is quite small.



After taking our seat, we started to ordered. But one thing quite funny is we entered a teppanyaki restaurant but we didn't ordered teppanyaki food, we ordered...


Spicy Ramen in soup... The soup is thick but I unable to describe its taste, it has kinda smell that I nerver met before.




Fried Ramen. My friend who ordered this dish still prefer to have it at Ajisen Ramen.


Okonomiyaki. Oni this one kinda related to teppanyaki...


Takoyaki

My friend ordered Okonomiyaki and the taste just like takoyaki we had usually, but the takoyaki we ordered is different from the one we had at other restaurants or stalls, it is quite special..

The restaurant is quite small and I feel like little packed. And there are only a few seats in the restaurant.

The dishes they serve are quite big portion and both of my female friends was getting full before finish the food. Anyway I like the takoyaki because its taste is different from other places.

I would like to rank this restaurant as 3 stars. Next time I wanna try on other restaurant on this Japanese Street.

A Buffet dinner at JOGOYA, Starhill Gallery


19th August was my convocation, so I celebrated my graduation with my family by having dinner at Jogoya. After a terrible traffic jam, my family and I able to reach there in time.





The restaurant has very comfortable and nice environment. And the restaurant is also huge until the stations are far from each other!




Steamed food station


Hot porcelain grill station, this station only provide raw material to grill yourself.

When you come here, you should try the coconut water, it has very nice smell.




Unlimited flow of white wine and red wine.

My first food to be taken was sashimi because it is my favorite!





There are also many appetizer too...


Smoked Salmon, Deep Fried Salmon Skin... others I not sure their name.


Marinated tomato, sharkfin, eggs...


Shark fin soup with crab meat.


Mushroom soup. I like the crispy crust.


Tempura, some of them I never tried before.


Not sure what is this, kinda like snail.


Fried oyster. I don't like it because the taste of oysters was covered by the fried oil.

The Chinese Cuisine...


Steamed dumpling with crab meat.


Black pepper crab.


Sweet sour chicken.


Steamed scallop.


Steamed fish. Every serving only has got small portion of fish, not enough for me.

The special one...


Paper steamboat on the porcelain stove, my own combination.

Finally, the desserts...

There are too many choice of desserts until I was unable to try all of them. Especially the Chocolate Fondue, I was so regret that I was unable to have it.


Cake and pudding station.



Puddings...


Cookies on the right while muachi on the left.


Cookies... and Dorayaki.


Muachi! I didn't try it because I will be getting fulled easily with it.


Ice cream Station, but we cannot take the ice cream by ourself...


Haagen-dazs ice cream. I only tried peach flavor because I had already fulled.

When I decided to have my dinner my family here, I was worried about my mum and aunt's comment. But after the dinner buffet, I was glad that they think the restaurant is worth to go again.

I also like the restaurant very much, the food of the restaurant are on par with its classy look. But one thing make me regret is that I was unable to try the VIP dishes there, especially the Cheese Baked Oyster, it is my most favorite one!

The service of the restaurant is also good. I still remember that I was once forgot to bring the clip to order Unagi, but the cook still gave me a plate of it and remind me to put clip into the ordering bowl next time.

As conclusion, although the price of the buffet is expensive, it is worth to have it. 4.5 stars for Jogoya.

Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City



Everytime when I pass by Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant, there always be a long queue during dining period. So this time I decided to dine at this restaurant. Although there wasn't any long queue outside the restaurant, the restaurant was still crowded and we still had to take the number before enter the restaurant.



Before we started our meal, we had a pot of tea, Taiwanese Rose Oolong Chinese Tea.



Fried rice, forget its name already, nice but a bit oily.

My friend ordered fresh tomato fried egg with fish fillet set. This one seems too much for 1 person, except he/she has a big appetite.





The fish fillet and fried egg are soft and the sause is nice too.

We also ordered glutinious rice sausage but I forgot to take the picture, it is a bit pity.

Maybe because the restaurant was too crowded, the serving of the restaurant wasn't satisfied. The seats of the restaurant was also too close to each other, this condition make me feel not easy to have my meal. Anyway, the food of the restaurant is still my favorite.

I would like to rank the restaurant as 3 stars. And it is better to dine at this restaurant during non-peak time.
