Ginza Tendon Itsuki

Another droolicious looking place that made us want to haul ourselves out of the house on a Sunday to queue up early for dinner. Ginza Tendon has certainly captured many hungry imaginations just from the glistening golden chunks stacked on a huge bowl of rice.

It was 5pm when we reached (officially opens at 5:30pm) and already there were 5 persons ahead of us. By the time the restaurant opened, there was about 30 people in the queue!

Baci Baci, a hidden gem in Serangoon

Away from the maddening traffic of Serangoon Gardnes is the homey and cosy Baci Baci tucked right in the corner of Lichfield Road (doesn’t that name conjure up images of grassy hills and blue skies?).

01 - Baci Baci

Unlike the typical over commercialized places in town, I like the quietness and warmth of the decor (which makes it great place for that romantic date and intimate gatherings) and their food is a real treat to the palate.

Maki So Shiok! Koh Grill & Sushi Bar

I have been seeing so many droolicious pics on the Shiok Maki, the signature dish from Koh Grill & Sushi Bar and was pleased to finally get to try it last week! Thankfully we escaped the long waiting line by arriving just at the start of a weekday lunchtime. Still it was already pretty full house when we got a table.

We started with the highly recommended Shiok Maki Generation 1 ($16.80) Now I understand what the craze is all about!

Penang Buffet at Princess Terrace, Copthorne King’s Hotel

Since York Hotel had just ended their recent Penang food fair, choices seemed limited for a Penang food buffet in an air-conditioned environment until we found this place.

As usual, excited by friends’ photos and delicious-looking online reviews, we were really looking forward to the lunch. Especially for the Assam Laksa.

WooBar, W Hotel (Sentosa, Singapore) – A Lost Reservation and Lost Appetites.

Woo Bar Hi Tea

The delightfully enticing pictures of caged goodies for WooBar’s hi tea certainly did their job in persuading us to go all the way down to Sentosa to check it out. Unfortunately our contacts had not been there before, or we certainly would not have.

Ramen Keisuke Kani King (Cineleisure

After reading seeing ravishing reviews online but getting less than glowing feedback from friends who went there, this place piqued my curiosity. For one, I have not tried crab stock based ramen soup before, and wondering how it would compare vs my favorite black pork ramen. Secondly, why the less than enthusiastic response?

We went down around 1pm at lunchtime. The place was mostly packed with younger customer types and the queue can take a while. You place your order by checking off your options on a food order form. I decided to go for the crab broth ramen (with strong flavor and normal texture noodles).
