Osaka Ohsho

Stella says that there is a promotion for Osaka Ohsho on Parti, a Japanese magazine, so we decided to have our dinner there. 

I ordered the Classic Tenshin Han Set. 

I really don't think it is even worth $10, much less the promotional price of $13.90. 

The omelette itself is not too bad but I think it would have been much better if fried rice had been used in place of white rice. However, the sauce that covers the omelette totally ruined the whole dish. It left a bad taste in my mouth. 

Osaka Ohsho is supposed to be the "King of Gyoza" but I am not impressed by what I had. The gyozas are all stuck together and the skin tears when I try to pull them apart. The filling is not flavorful enough, I can only taste cabbage and some pork. 

The soup is just some Chinese cabbage soup, I thought this is supposed to be a Japanese restaurant?!

I guess it is still acceptable for average folks who couldn't care if they are eating authentic Japanese food, but it's unacceptable to food lovers like me and Stella.

Stella and I have both come to the sad conclusion that any restaurant that is under the Ajisen group of restaurant is, as we Singaporeans say, "cannot make it". I would love to be proven wrong, but until then, I am going to blacklist this restaurant.

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.
