Kenny Rogers

I was on my way to Australian University Open House which was hosted by IDP, and I was hungry, so I stopped for lunch at Kenny Rogers as I was passing through Marina Square to get to Pan Pacific Hotel, where the Open House was held.

I vowed never to eat at Kenny Rogers again after the last time I ate there (I don’t remember but something really bad must have happened for me to dislike a restaurant so much).

I wanted to order Homestyle Baked Fish, but the friendly waitress who attended to me informed me that I have to wait for about 15 minutes because it is freshly prepare upon order. As I was too hungry, I ordered Quarter Chicken with side dishes of Macaroni and Cheese and Corn Nibblets. I also ordered Mushroom Soup.

The portions are much smaller as compared to before, when Mum used to bring me there to eat (I think that was one of my complaints the last time I had Kenny Rogers). The servings used to be huge and I always had difficulty finishing my plate of food.

I was served a piece of their famous corn muffin first. The corn muffin is still as delicious as ever. It is moist and you can taste the corn in every mouthful.

The Mushroom Soup exceeds my expectations and is comparable to the one at Food For Thought.

My main course arrived shortly. Although the portions are smaller, but I was surprised that the food was really good. The chicken meat is tender, even the breast meat is flavorful (I suspect I was really upset the last time I had Kenny Rogers because the chicken was too dry). The Macaroni and Cheese is still as good and cheesy as ever and the Corn Nibblets are sweet and crunchy.

Mikoto Singapore

Stella has been raving about Mikoto Singapore ever since she ate there. She brought her boyfriend and a few other friends there and they were all full of praises. Is it really that good? I started to wonder. I jumped at the chance when Stella invited me to have dinner with her boyfriend and her at Mikoto Singapore.

I started off with Red Plum Liquor. You can't really taste the alcohol probably because the alcohol content is lower, but the taste of red plum is refreshing.

This is Nitsuke. It looked so good on the menu, but it was a little disappointing. The only noteworthy thing is the sauce.

This is Chicken Nanban. The chicken pieces are perfectly deep-fried. Tartar sauce is made with Japanese pickled eggplants called shibazuke which gives it the pick colour. This is definitely the highlight of the meal!

This is Vegetable Stick with Anchovy Sauce. The raw vegetables are very fresh and they go very well with the slightly-salty anchovy sauce.

This is Ham Cheese Katsu and it is only …

I Am Cafe

Mariem wanted to meet for dinner and she suggested this I Am Cafe that I have not heard of before.

Located at Haji Lane, this cafe  swaps air-conditioning for casualness and down-to-earth prices. It is not certified halal, but it is owned by three Muslim brothers.

The waitress recommended Cheezy Bombs and it was really delicious. Deep-fried chicken meatball with melted cheese, they explode in your mouth and will burn your mouth if you are not careful. 

I ordered Charcoal-Grilled Juicy Beef Burger. The beef patty if very juicy but a little under-seasoned, the addition of the pineapple gives the burger a totally different experience. However, it would be great if the beef patty can be made into two thinner ones, so that the burger can be eaten in halves, most girls don't have such a big mouth.

Mariem had Fish 'N' Chips. I had a few bites and it was alright, but I can still taste the taste of the fish, which should not be the case in a good Fish 'N' Chips.

Awfully Chocolate

I have a sweet tooth, but I am not a big fan of chocolates because I find them too sweet.

However, if I ever have craving for chocolate cake, THE place I will go to is Awfully Chocolate.

I can't remember who introduced me to Awfully Chocolate, but I have been hooked ever since.

The Salted Butterscotch Brownie is really good. You can taste the butterscotch in every bite, but it is a little too sweet for me.
The Super Stacked Chocolate Cake is the one for me. It is super chocolatey, yet it is not overly sweet. It is the most popular item for a reason.
The White Choclate Creme Brulee Tart is too sweet, but otherwise delicious. 
Don't take my word for it - go and try them for yourself! I promise that you will not regret it.
