Moi only knew about this place when I chanced upon a newspaper article of it even though Toa payoh town center is so small and since it’s small, virtually every new shop will be noticed. But after knowing where this shop is located, it’s no wonder it went unnoticed to moi as it’s tucked behind in a back alley, behind the bustling row of shops that houses Watsons, Bossini, Bee cheng hiang etc.
There was a little bit of queue when moi was there had to wait for about 5-10 mins for my turn.
Decided to get one flavor each to try :) greedy
Chocolate flavor – quite alright
Green tea – the best!! everyone in the family lurves this.
Valrhona chocolate – yum
Classic Original – moi liked this too.
Classic with nutella – ok la nutty nutty bite to it
Will stick to green tea in future :)
This is located at the new office building next to the Eng Wah cineplex at Toa Payoh Central.
Brought maman and mimi there to have dinner before mimi’s ballet class.
We ordered only 2 sets to share amongst 3 of us as we don’t eat that much for dinner nowadays haha.
And the staff here were so sweet, they added more rice for us (although we didn’t request for it) as they know we are sharing :)
Vegetarian curry – with eggplants, lady’s finger, carrots, potatoes, good!
Fried dory fish curry – yum yum
Comes with a free drink and free dessert as well!
Green tea jelly – we all loved this! wanna try to make this at home too :)
Princess Mama informed us about this promotion at Sun with Moon Central outlet so we went there for dinner to catch up and also to receive the boxes of face masks carnivore ling and her xiao lan had dutifully lugged back for us :)
While waiting for princess mama and carnivore ling to arrive, moi bought a soya milk drink from mr. bean to sip sip while shopping and also brought the half finished drink into the restaurant, the staff there were very sweet, although there’s a no outside food and drinks policy, they emptied the remaining drink into a cup so that it wouldn’t look like an “outside” drink!
Moi’s spicy ramen – just a teeny hint of spicyness and it adds to the flavor of the soup yum yum
Princess mama’s chirashi don set
Pirikara chicken wings to share – our favourite!
Of cos, this has to be carnivore ling’s hamburger steak set haha!
Princess mama highly recommended this tofu cheesecake to us – really delicious, maybe can try to make this at home…
Forgot the name of this cake, think is something chocolate
Moi went to Botan with another colleague during lunch for their Champon and Sara udon.
Champon is a bowl of udon in vegetables, very big serving, cannot finish it heehee
Sara udon is deep fried crispy noodle with sauce, something like our 生面 in tze char
Moi and colleagues rarely comes here for lunch, in moi’s working life here in Raffles Place (10 years in total), only came to have lunch here less than 10 times partly cos the food in O-An is considered expensive to us and it’s not really that yummy to justify us spending so much on for lunch.
On this particular day, moi ordered their daily special, which was salmon head with stir fry spinach with eggs
Moi’s colleague had their teriyaki salmon set
Ste and moi happened to walk by this place the last time we went shopping at Takashimaya and promised to try their famous tonkatsu ramen the next time.
“Next time” came fast, just one week later (maybe we cannot wait anymore haha)
Tonkatsu ramen – soup was a bit spicy but it was just perfect with the tonkatsu :) so delicious!
Ste added an egg to her ramen – she say was very nice too ；）
Went with Ste and Misty to celebrate Misty’s birthday. We ordered one seafood teppanyaki set to share plus some sushi and handroll and misty’s osusume, garlic fried rice.
Salads to start
Sushi and hand roll (Ste loves their hand roll very much!)
Teppanyaki cuttle fish
Cod fish – delicious
Garlic fried rice – it was very fragrant and garlic taste wasn’t overpowering
Teppanyaki lobster with special sauce – they added some wasabi in the sauce very nice, the fried sliced garlics on the side were very crispy and tasty too
Beef – yum
Grilled corn – very sweet we all lurved it
Toi and moi went over there for dinner one evening, we were attracted by the wide varieties of don that this stall offered so decided to give it a try.
Rice with mushrooms and egg – it was good!
Rice with mushrooms and egg plus mini udon – udon was not too bad as well, very simple fare
We packed some onigiris, this yummy saba bento and some pan fried dumplings for dinner to enjoy in the comfort of our hotel room :D
For dinner, mimi and moi felt like having burger so we had Burger King *yawnz* haha but maman was more adventurous, she walked around the food court and finally settled on this stall “Kokoro bento”.
Teriyaki chicken – serving was so big and with so many side dishes all packed into this cute wooden server. At only KRW9500
