New Food Centre @ 101 Yung Sheng Road (Taman Jurong)

This place is amazing!

My grandma introduced us to this food centre because it’s really big, spacious, plenty of seats, airy, and comes with all sorts of cuisine! She loves the Korean stall in particular, and so that was what we ate.

We ordered beef. I think it was $6.90 or $7.90 something. Then we ordered the kimchi soup as well, which I think was $6.90 or $7.90.

My brother ate the roast meat rice, which was a very generous serving as well.

The two Korean dishes we ordered were perfect for me and my grandma. In fact, it was a little too much food for the both of us! Will be back next time. Really affordable hawker fare here.

Sukiya @ Plaza Singapura

It was an amazing day. I arranged to meet an old friend for dinner – one who I was so indebted to because he helped me with my studies back then. It’s also been a good five years since we’ve met!

Without further ado, we scheduled a dinner at Plaza Singapura – at Sukiya. I was hopping mad with excitement because it’s been a long time since I had this!

For the soup base we chose Miso, and Sukiyaki (a MUST). When my friend asked if I wanted to upgrade to premium beef for $10.90 per person, I yelled YES! It was my first time with this upgrade, and no regrets there.

As you can see in the photo above, along with the upgrade we had access to meat that has more fat and marbling. It’s so worth the upgrade, I tell you! We also had scallops were big and juicy.

Not to mention salmon fish that is SO thick and SO yummy. Slabs and slabs of salmon, free flow!

In this photo above you can see the non-premium beef, which is what you would get if you didn’t get the upgrade. You should always upgrade at Sukiya! It’s really worth it.

In the end we paid $45 per person, including GST. It was so worth it. By the way, you have to eat fast since it’s 180 minutes per table. Eat, drink, be merry!

Where to Bring Friends: Froth @ Ascott Raffles Place

We had yet another business meeting – ah hem – and yes, I am very important. We were looking for a lunch place that’s conducive yet reasonably priced, and discovered Froth. Located in the heart of the Central Business District, this boutique restaurant offers you modern Asian fusion fare with unique creations such as Duck Kut Teh, Seafood Tom Yum Risotto, Siobak Aglio and Taro Waffles.

Each of the four of us went with the lunch set promotion. The first dish was such a delight – and it’s called Pork Rillete. It’s compressed pork designed with pomegranate and comes with a side of homemade multi-grain bread. This is the first time anyone has gone to this extent in making my food look beautiful.

My partner decided to go with the Chilli Crab Pasta, which was linguine served in homemade chilli crab sauce, and topped with soft shell crab and fried mantou. It looks really amazing, and tasted great too.

This was my main course – Soya Kombu Beef Cheeks! The beef cheeks come served with truffle mashed potatoes, confit garlic, Chinese cabbage, mushroom and pine nuts. I was at first drawn to the promise of mashed potato – and was pleasantly surprised by the presentation of the dish. The beef cheeks were super soft, super tender, and very juicy, fresh and delicious. It was such a perfect meal for me.

For dessert, my set menu comes with Toasted Rice Parfait, which comes with furikake crumble, seaweed tuile, Mandarin Orange jelly, yuzu gel, and topped with Sakura green tea foam. Yums!

This is the menu showing my lunch set:

In addition to the set menu, we ordered a Pumpkin Salted Egg Tart to share. It’s beautifully presented and comes complete with caramelised pumpkin puree, pumpkin seeds, and comes topped with homemade coconut ice cream.

It was a perfect lunch for the four of us. Thank you Froth for this wonderful dining experience.
