Hip Diner USA @ Cineleisure

Hip Diner USA by Billy Bombers. Actually I didn't feel like dining here, but my brother insist to dine here because he still can't forget the food here.






American-style decoration in the restaurant.



I think the restaurant mainly promote burger besides grills. Like other people, we only ordered plain water. According to my brother, plain water is more suitable since the food served are in big portion and easily get fulled.

The starter:


I forget its name already, but I remember the smell of cheese, really nice.

Main course:


Mix Grill. S$18.90


Got egg, sausage, bacon, chicken, fish and mashed potato. The portion isn't too big but the mashed potato can make people getting fulled.


Hip Diner Burger, recommended by chef. S$23.90


Too big until most of the people unable finish it.

I am not regret to dine here, and the grills, I really like it because can taste different grills in one time. I still wonder how the chef cooked the broccoli and carrot which served with the grill, the vegetables was so soft and juicy, really nice! I also like other food like the fried onion ring and French fries, perfect match with the cheese.

The service here quite okay, the only thing is quite hard to call them, maybe they are too busy.. Anyway, I will rank this restaurant as , it is worth recommended.

三盅两件 (Soup Restaurant)



This time I had my lunch at "三盅两件" which is recommended by my relatives live in Singapore. 三盅两件 has got many branches in Singapore, and we go to the branch located at Century Square, Tampines. The restaurant is quite famous with its soup in Singapore.




The environment of the restaurant is nice but a bit small, most of the waitress here are from China.



Marinated peanut was served after seating.

We ordered a set meal that is suitable for six people, but it is a bit regret that I was unable to take a photo on some food, they were eaten away too fast!


Samsui Ginger Chicken, the recommendation of the restaurant. This one really nice, the chicken is soft and not too oily. Special to have it with lettuce.



Venison Fried with Ginger & Spring Onion


Tofu Prawn


Ah Kon Fan Shu Leaves


Yong Chow Fried Rice. But I think plain rice is more matching with other food.

The other dishes are Steamed (fish) Uncle Lapan, and Boiled Soup of the Day. Due to promotion, we ordered one more dish with only $1.


Claypot Sea Cucumber with Duck Wing.

The set menu for six people costs $128.80. All of the food were served in big portion until we couldn't finish them.


Dessert of White Fungus and Ginkgo nut. $6

The food of this restaurant is really nice, not too oily and salty. especially the Samsui Ginger Chicken, really impressive. The soup was served in clay pot and the soup is thick, seems like being boiled for quite long time. The china tea we ordered was not served in a teapot but in glasses, and everytime the waitress will refill the glasses.

But I want to mention again is their food served were too much. Food will become testeless when eat too much. It is also wasteful because unable to finish the food.

As a conclusion, the restaurant is worth recommended and 3.5 stars for the restaurant.

Kimchi & BBQ -- An Authentic Korean Restaurant

After reading the recommendation on the forum, I decided to have my lunch at Kimchi & BBQ. But the location of the restaurant cannot be recognized easily, it is located in uptown area behind Plaza Pelangi. I think only local people will notice its existence.
The reason attract I come to this restaurant because the restaurant is opened by a couple of Korean, which means that the food here should be "authentic" and more "original".






There are two different stoves on each table, different meat uses different stove.


The exhaust fan


The Korean-style spoon and chopsticks.

I ordered a set meal which is suitable for 3 persons. At here, we just concentrated on eating because the waiter there helped us to grill the meat. It is quite convenient, but one thing not convenient is that the waiter will still beside us while we were having our meal.


Pork Spare ribs with bone


Thick sliced pork belly special


Roasted saury


Ginseng chicken soup


Kimchi Pancake

The food mentioned are include in the set meal, but a set meal seems a bit expensive, which is RM100++. Beside set meal, we ordered other food too.


Fried Korean rice cake with Kimchi. Quite expensive, RM25

Beside the main dishes, the set meal also includes lots of side dishes. Like Korean-style too, the dishes were served in small plates.


Nine side dishes. The lettuce is for grill.


Nice arrangement!

Take a closer look!



















The waiters will teach every costumer the way to have grill in Korean-style when they help to grill.




Before and after the meat is being grilled.


This sour salad is served with grill and lettuce.

After have meal, customers will be served with a Muachi and unknown juice. According to the Korean (owner), the drink will help to improve our sight.



I really like the environment of the restaurant, like is tatami style seating. Especially the staffs of the restaurant, they are really hospitable. But, the grill seems a bit too less for me.
Even the price of the food here is quite expensive, but I still recommend this restaurant. I rank this restaurant as 4 stars and it is worth to give a try.
