Shin-Sapporo Ramen #1

The True Fitness outlet at Suntec has been closed for renovation, so I decided to go to the outlet at Tampines.

After a good workout at the gym, I was hungry, so I went looking for food at the nearest shopping center, Century Square. There are not many good restaurants in Century Square, but I did find a restaurant that I have wanted to try: Shin-Sapporo Ramen. There used to be one outlet at Suntec, but by the time I have the money to eat there, the outlet has closed down. I have not been able to locate any of its outlets until now.

I decided to treat myself to a good meal. I ordered Potato Salad and their signature dish, Shin-Sapporo Miso Ramen.

Miso Ramen was developed in Sapporo, capital of Hokkaido. The broth is made of miso and chicken or fish broth to create a thick, nutty, slightly sweet and very hearty soup. The noodles are typically thick, curly, and slightly chewy. The broth is slightly saltier than tonkutsu, but is nevertheless very tasty.

The Potato Salad tastes very normal, except for the crunchy bits.

I am so happy to have found a restaurant where I can sample the different kinds of ramen all under one roof. I will definitely be back to try the rest, namely Shoyu Ramen, Shio Ramen, Cha-shu Ramen, Menchi Ramen, Hiyashi-Chuka Soba and Tonkutsu Shoyu. That’s another 6 more visits to the restaurant. I can’t wait!

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.
For drinks,…

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.
