Had lunch at Paradise Inn because my colleague had a voucher for it. Min $60 spending with $20 off :)

These were what we'd ordered.
Seafood fried rice
Coffee pork ribs
Fried kailan
Beef fried hor fun
Fried prawn rolls with salted egg! YUMMY! :D
Rosemary, Chrysanthemum and Lavender flavoured tea, but not my cup of tea LOL 
Since I'm not a foodie, I do not source for high-end expensive food. I just included this food category under my blog to share reviews with you guys. I do not especially hunt for good food. :)

But in any case, Paradise Inn's too expensive for me. I would settle down for a simple meal that keeps me full anytime. A simple plate of chicken rice would win me over. I'd like to have a 1-meal-settle-it-all kind of food, unless I'm sharing with others, ala carte is not my preference. 

Of all the food above, I really like the fried prawn rolls with salted egg! Well, that's because I love salted eggs, though I won't like selling them, LOL?

Another highlight is the fish roe that's mixed in the fried rice. See those little orange dots? Yes, that's the one. Not sure about you, but this is my first encounter :)

Oh yes, the coffee pork ribs were quite good too! It has a mixture of sweet coffee taste. :)

Overall rating : 4/5 but value for money : 2/5 =/
Had dinner at Madam Saigon Millenia Walk yesterday. 

Bf and I were disappointed, really. 

We didn't order much because we were still feeling full from our late lunch (Toastbox @ MBS). Plus, the small bites were about the same or more expensive than the main course which we thought, wasn't really value for money. 
This order was a HUGE MISTAKE! We'd though the spring rolls would be fried but goodness...! We loathed this spring roll because it's filled with loads of bean sprouts, disgusting peppermint leaves (I think?) and the skin somewhat similar to soon kueh, is quite hard, dry, stiff and difficult to chew.
Sauce for the spring rolls. Tasted like the sweet sauce for chee chong fun. 
Bf's sliced beef and meat ball noodles :)
I'm not a really a fan of beef  and definitely not for meat balls.
My chicken noodles. Wanted something light on the stomach :)
Interesting cover caps for the condiments :)
Both noodles are not value for money. They tasted just like any other normal noodles which you can get it at a cheaper price at food courts/hawkers/coffeeshops. 

But I shall not complain about the price since the restaurant was located at Millenia Walk and well, it's a restaurant. 

Nevertheless, I won't recommend anyone to patronise Madam Saigon and I doubt I will eat there ever again :(
Are you a fan of Japanese food? Do you lookout for delicious Japanese delicacies? Can't get your tongue off that Sashimi?

Well, you're not alone!

In Singapore, from reviews and word of mouth, Japanese food can be said to top the charts of many when it comes to choice of cuisine :)

And yes, I am definitely a Japanese food fan too! I love their udon, cha soba, salmon sashimi, ebiko rolls... Well, you get the drift ;)

Had the opportunity to dine in this awesome Japanese restaurant known as Kinsa Sushi located at AMK through one of my colleagues' intro. 

It was empty when we reached and 2 other men dined in as well whilst we were savoring our food. I guess it's because it's rather new? You may read their blog here : http://kinsasushi.blogspot.sg/
Only a few months' old :)

We all agreed that they portray exquisiteness with their own little style of presentation of the food. 

Let the pictures do the talking, shall we? ;)
Prepare your tissues :P
Waitresses are dressed in kimono and the Japanese chefs uniform!
Pink cha soba OMG! No we didn't order this, HAHA!
Wanted to order salmon sashimi but it was too pricey. $4.80 for 3 pieces, although sliced thickly =/
IMO, cups are too small. Had to refill a million times.
Chawanmushi!!! <3
My tempura udon! Their udon is really special. It's not the usual thick and fat noddles but very thin noodles which my colleagues all said like meepok -.- But I personally prefer the thick udon, I feel cheated! :(
My pathetic tempura with capsicum and sweet potato, without any sauce provided! :(
This niniku (garlic) was the joke of the day. Colleagues ordered fried garlic rice/garlic fried rice(?!) and they were literally given 1 bulb of garlic and white rice... OMG. -.-
Different chawanmushi from mine, which came along with my colleagues' bento set!
Heh, all in all, I think it was an enjoyable meal :) and would definitely recommend you guys to try there sometime! :D
Only thing is that they have only 1 outlet (perhaps more in time to come?) located at AMK. 

Overall ratings : 4/5

It was my bestie's (whom I've known for the past 11 years) birthday and we had initially decided to dine at Marche Bistro and Bar at Raffles City but the birthday girl complained that it was too hot and stuffy. So we settled down at The Handburger (TH) instead at Raffles City basement level, where all the other delicious eateries are located at too! :)

This is prolly my 2nd time trying out TH. The 1st time happened at Somerset outlet. My memory has failed me and I cannot recall what I had that time but I vaguely remembered that the food weren't that great.

The recent experience at the Raffles City outlet was horrendous as well.

I had the Battered Dory (Fan of fish over other meat) which came with a side - either Mushroom soup, House salad or fries. All 4 of us (Bday girl + her bf + me + my bf) chose to have the mushroom soup over the rest. 
My battered dory as seen from the picture, comes with fried lotus beetroot (yes the one you use for soup). All in all, the fish had not much taste, although the crisps were acceptable. The soup we all had, were tasteless as well. I had to add salt into mine =/ I didn't finish the bread buns of the burger either. But the tomato was huge - as huge as the burger bread size.  
Bf had some spicy chicken burger with a huge mushroom on the top! Tried a small piece of chicken and it was quite spicy! :(
The bday girl had some ducky burger :)
Super sorry for the extremely blurred picture. Had some angle problems whilst snapping this. Boss Ang (bday girl's bf) had some, I believe them to be bacon and egg burger? 
They ordered this cheesy fries as well which looked really good but I didn't try it out myself =P
I would not recommend any of you to patronise this eatery because they have failed me twice on both visits. Their food ain't tasty, and some are tasteless. Prices for the burger sets are approx less than $20 each. Mine was $15.90. Totally NOT value for money. Could have gotten myself some other tastier treats around the vicinity. Thought I would want to give them a second chance but still, utter disappointment. :(

Overall rating : 1.5/5 stars
My colleagues and I had the 1-for-1 lunch promotion at Bobby's a few days ago. 

The ambience was acceptable and seems cozy for soccer watches. 

I'd went to the other outlet at Cuppage few months back to catch a soccer match with my bf. But that outlet seems kinda stuffy at the indoor dining area. It is usually filled during weekends and there would be massive crowds situated at the outdoor areas catching soccer matches. 

My colleagues and I went to the other outlet at CHIJMES and we ordered Carbonara, Aglio Olio, Cheeseburger with Fries as well as Sour drumlets. 
This is seriously ONE OF THE BEST CARBONARA I'VE TRIED THUS FAR! Extremely tasty and the noodles were well-cooked! Not too hard nor soft :)

Except for the fact that I had the runs 1 to 2 hours after my lunch, I am having mixed emotions. Not sure if it's caused by my lunch or just my usual stomach problems. But will definitely want to try again the next time I patronise Bobby's! :D
2 of my colleagues had Aglio Olio and 1 complained that it was too dry. I've tried the prawn and it was quite fresh but a tad too spicy or me! :(
Another colleague chose the cheeseburger with fries! I must comment that the beef patty isn't the usual frozen beef patties you get at the fastfood outlets. When eaten, you would know straight away that they are not those frozen stiff kind and the minced beef meat gets dispersed into your mouth when bitten. It has a more 'meaty and beefy' taste as well, and of course, much juicier! :)

Another commendable food would be the fries that come along with the burger. I'm not too sure if they are those frozen ones, but I guess not? They too have a different taste from the usual fries... 
Didn't eat the drumlets as I am not a fan and was already stuffed. Colleagues did mention that they were quite sour and a tad spicy. So if you ain't a fan of sourness, try avoiding this delicacy :)
