Where to Bring Mum: Nun Song Yee

This weekend, I really wanted to bring mum out somewhere that’s family-friendly and comfortable. I decided to take my family out for Bingsu. My mother probably doesn’t know what’s a Bingsu, and I was right!

The Nunsongyee outlet that we went to is the one at Chun Tin Road, Bukit Timah. The outlet is at the corner of a block, facing the street.

We ordered a Mango Bingsu and a Chocolate Banana Bingsu. Honestly, a lot of people ordered the Oreo Bingsu and I kind of regretted ordering the Chocolate Banana Bingsu, which was just Milo powder!

Nonetheless, my mother was pretty impressed with the Bingsu. Our family, being a very typical thrifty Singaporean family, was shocked by the prices though – it was $18 for that one bowl.

The Mango Bingsu was lovely. I would also recommend the Oreo one, which seem to be a favourite!

The two Bingsus we ordered were just right for the four of us. I love the ice cream as well – it was quality ice cream that doesn’t melt fast. (A myth: My brother realized that it was the bowl that was cold!)

Bingsu at Nunsongyee – highly recommended for you and your family. 🙂

Where to Bring Mum: Ga Ya Geum Family Restaurant

Where should I bring my mother out this weekend? Having watched Running Man recently, I decided it was high time I brought my family out for a Korean meal. I remembered years back that my friends brought me to a Korean family restaurant at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre. My family of 4 got into a cab, and off we scooted off to Bukit Timah.

Located at B2 of the shopping centre (which was pretty empty), Gayageum restaurant was a very cosy outfit. We took our seats and were handed menus.

We decided to go for A5, Pork Belly and Marinated Chicken. It looked great on the menu, but unfortunately, as you’ll later see, the pork belly is really thinly sliced and not squarish. 😦

We ordered Bulgogi noodles! The soup tasted strong, so I didn’t drink much of the soup. But the beef was delicious.

My brother, who didn’t know that Korean restaurants served side dishes, was really impressed with these colourful side dishes.

Of course I have to order my kimchi seafood pancake – which I have been craving for, for so long! $16.

This was the Set A5. Pretty disappointed with the thin pork slices. 😦

My first visit here was great but the next time I’m here, I’ll probably take beef bulgogi and pancake, and not the A5 set.
