Writing keeps me going and away from insanity. More so in my current situation. However, lately I have a climbing readership on eatwithroy.com and more ‘Likes’ on Facebook. That keeps any writer/reviewer/critic going and wanna write more. (Thank you guys!) Better still, you get invitations for media sampling and sometimes your constructive reviews help these restaurants twitch their product and services to be more attractive.
However I got a new review request from a friend in the US working in this gaming app company Seriously. Yes, seriously Seriously. Check out the image of the game below:
The GUI is definitely appealing and as you can see there are many stages to the game. I was thinking, oh no, not another Candy Crush… Well, same concept of stages but the game itself is different.
You get to unlock friends to help you to clear stages, get new additions to the challenges as you move up the stages, generate power gems as you clear the items that will boost your monster friends. Seems easy from the start but I believe it’ll get tougher when I hit level 30 or something like that.
This game I believe is targeted more to kids, ladies or peeps that just wanna kill some time waiting for something… Or someone. I have not completed many levels to comment further so why don’t you guys try it yourself? It’s free to download for now, check out the link here: https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/best-fiends/id868013618?mt=8. You can play it in the bus or train, toilet, waiting for your partner, etc. ;P
Was in Genting recently and spotted this new flavour which for a durian fan is like a dream come true. So of course, I bought one cup to try. Not cheap, costed me RM$7.60 which equates to around S$3.00. Nevertheless, I still have to try it.
It is probably the worst McFlurry I’ve ever tasted. The durian sauce tasted so chemical, they should have used puree instead. At the same time, there was hardly any durian taste in it. The crunchy stuff is hard, totally don’t value add to the overall product. I’d rather they add cornflakes instead. Somehow I believe these decisions to launch such a product have not gone through any food consultancy, really bad call and a waste of my money. It was so bad, I took 2 scoops and left the cup there. Really Pui Chao Nua…
Came across OCK’s stall at NEX just now and saw this limited period promotion for this new flavour, Chilli Crab ‘O Puff. I was told that this new flavour is not bad so I gave it a go.
Rating: OCK is known for their pastry so that is definitely good. The chilli crab taste is really nice but if you’re looking for real crab meat inside to fill the whole puff, then you’ll be disappointed. They use crab stick as expected and the bits around it are egg bits. But for $1.60, it’ll be tough to put real crab meat in there but would be good if they can just use a little to give it a fuller taste. That should not affect the cost that much. Overall it tasted great on the palettes, however, I’ll go for the original curry ones anytime. ;P
This product is totally not new ‘cos I had it in while I was in Suzhou. I haven’t tasted the original ones from Korea but this taste pretty good itself. I was first attracted by the large portion but only to find out this 200g pack is actually 100g+100g. Tell you more below:
Love the noodle texture. Thick and full of bite. You may have to cook a little longer like 4 mins or so. Love the sauce too. Taste better with some fried onions and white pepper over it. I do not know where this is selling but they are usually selling at the food fairs in Singapore for $5 per pack of 5. Go try it and tell me if you like it too? 😉
Maybe because I just got back from overseas, but to me this is a new product. Spotted this at the supermarket just yesterday and they have 2 flavours; Kyushu Black and Tokyo Shoyu. Base on what I saw on the shelves, seems like Kyushu Black is the better tasting one ‘cos it was the last bundle of 5 packs. Kyushu Black also appeals more to me reason because of the broth. I love creamy broths in my ramen! Anyways, my reviews below:
Overall Rating: 5/5. Ramen texture is really springy and texture is pretty close to the real fresh ramen. Cook for about 4 and a half mins will be better so that it’ll be softer. Broth taste like those of Tonkotsu (Pork Bone), rich and creamy and together with the garlic and black sesame oil, you’ll have a wonderful bowl of aromatic home-cooked ramen! Selling for S$3.50 per bundle pack of 5 small packets of 126gsm, each packet has a pretty sufficient serving size for one pax. Best of all, it’s halal certified so that our Muslim friends can savour what they originally can’t taste (‘cos pork bone broth) and it is also a product of Singapore! So proud of it! Well done guys, awesome product!
Have you guys tried this yet? Maggi Curry Instant Noodles has always been close to my heart as we grew up with this brand apart from Myojo and Koka. For the usual curry instant noodles, well, it kept me and my camp mates company during our basic training in the Police Academy. I remember us smuggling in these instant noodles and snacking on them at night after lights out. So when I saw this at the supermarket, I told myself I gotta try this, although it’s filled with additives. 🙁
Retailing at $3.20 for a pack of 5 x 108g packets, this new flavour’s serving per pack is about 20g more than the normal size. So now one packet with loads of veg is sufficient for me. Check out my reviews below:
Review: 3/5. Flavor wise, very much like their normal version except it’s spicier. Other than that, texture of the noodles is still the same. Wished they would surprise me with something new but to my dismay, nothing special except it’s a bigger packet (I paid for it) and a little spicier that’s all.
