The Handburger, 313 @ Summerset

The Handburger, it is located at 313 summerset. Actually I don't really like to eat burger, but this restaurant has its burger impressed me.

It is always crowded in the restaurant after office hour, so better reach there early...

There is a tray on seats, but the seats kinda close to each other. :(

The menu...

The set meal oways includes a main course (burger), a side dish, and a glass of drink.

Onion Ring. I love to have it dipped with the special sauce. It is different from what we have at other restaurant. Damn crispy!

Another side dish, mixed green salad.

When it was served, I didn't put too much attention on it. But the special mayonnaise (maybe) makes the salad different, there is sesame in the mayonnaise so that it has got nice smell. I like its salad more than the 1 I had at Trattoria(at Summerset too).

Now, the main course.

Tandoon Chicken Burger. This burger is Asian style. I like its bun, it is very soft and fluffy, different from the other bun.

I don't like the chicken (chest). It is tasteless at the inner part.

Now is another burger ordered by my friend.

Chicken Caesar burger. This one better than the previous. There is bacon wrapping the chicken, nice to be eaten with the mushroom paste n caesar sauce.

Actually the restaurant's attraction is their special made sauce applied on the food, so that an ordinary food can become very nice after topping with the sauce. The only thing is the restaurant is a little too packed, not suitable for a casual dining. And because there was too many customer in the restaurant, it took quite a long time for our food to be served. And the last thing is the price, hmm... seems expensive, the food shown just now, together with 2 glasses of drink already costed over S$30.
I would like to put 3 stars for the restaurant.

Ji De Chi Dessert Shop @ Liang Seah Street

There are quite many Chinese style dessert shops along Liang Seah Street, which is just behind Bugis Junction. And this is one of those on the street -- Ji De Chi. This dessert shop provides more choices of cold desserts while the others more on hot and traditional desserts.

The shop is very small and there are always crowded at night. So everytime when I visit the cafe I have to wait till the previous diners leave the table.
Shooting on the interior of the small dessert shop...

The cafe was awarded by The Green Book, seems like it is worth to have a try on it.

Start ordering...

Yin Yang Mango Black Glutinous Rice
This is quite special since there are red beans in the mango ice. Anyway, this is not my favourite.

Durian Snowy Ice
That's it! My favourite! I like the durian smell especially the cream on the ice. This kind of dessert can be found at anywhere else but the topping of the ice make it special. Besides the durian cream, there are also pomelo and yogurt balls as the toppings too.

Strawberry and Passionfruit Snowy Ice
I wanna say that actually the ice is not very sweet as you think, even my friend claim it not sweet enough. I like this, having with sweetness of strawberry and fragrance of passionfruit. Sometimes having with mango and other toppings, really enjoy it!

The dessert shop serves snacks too.
Mango in Glutinous Rice
The green tea flavour glutinous rice is wrapping the mango and red bean. Kinda Japanese style but not really because there is shredded coconut on the outer layer of the roll. The most important is the every part of the roll doesn't overcome each other's role. What a impressive match!

Honestly, the environment of the dessert shop is not that pleasant. I had my desserts with sweat terribly. Anyway, if considering the desserts and snacks, I still think that it is worth to go for. I want to rank the food here as 3.5 per 5 stars.
