You know most of the time we run out of choices for supper in Singapore and this is prolly a good place for such indulgence for your next supper outing. Was introduced to this little place by a friend and immediately it rekindled my years in China where you can find BBQs at every nooks and crannies in the neighbourhood.
Although they just started only like two months ago, I have since revisited them after they have renovated (expanded) but still most customers prefer to sit outside when they have a nice airconditioned room inside. On top of that, they even have crafted and draft beers now which of course is not offered by the coffee shop they are residing in.
Taste: Love it! Especially the pork skewers and special pork & chicken balls! Not forgetting the bacon skewers!
Portion: Skewers lor.
Service: Very good especially when 4 partners are there to help out.
Ambience: The new aircon area is damn comfy lah in this blardy hot weather!
Price: Skewers starts from $1.20 to $18 (sea bass) Sea bass is really worth a try!
Location: 489 Geylang Road. Opens daily. See FB page for hours.
Recently I was invited by my long time lovely friend Cathryn to another media tasting hosted by REINS International (S) Pte Ltd at their Prime Gyu-Kaku outlet at CHIJMES and was organised by TheAsiaMedia folks. To be honest, I have not been to CHIJMES ever since my media tasting at Lei Gardens, and it was great to be able to visit the place again after 6 years.
Gyu-Kaku, meaning “Horn of the Bull” in Japanese provides the authentic Japanese Yakiniku (barbeque) dining experience where customers share premium cooked meats over a flaming charcoal grill while sipping on Japanese Sake, Shochu and frosty cold beers. Founded in 1996, this chain of restaurants is committed to provide fresh foodstuffs and to offer good food at reasonable prices with excellent ambience and services. In addition, the group looks into developing the best equipment for their restaurants especially the on-the-table smokeless roasters, which makes everyone a chef as soon as they sit down. Using the Down Draft System, customers will not leave the restaurant smelling like the restaurant!
Anyway, this media tasting is for us to try their new menu offering Kuroge Wagyu beef directly imported from Kagoshima, Japan. We were told the difference between these Japanese beef is that they are all farm based and do not run about like those in Australia, which they have been serving. Hence the marbling and meat is a lot more tender. And as usual, I’ll let the pictures do the talking:
Rating: 5/5. I kid you not.
Taste: I can only say, “WOW!” I think I can say this for the rest of the media invitees that we enjoyed every bit of it! Aesthetically and gastronomically satisfying!
Portion: Good Size
Service: Blardy good! Thank you front house and kitchen team for putting up such a goodnahgood performance!
Ambience: Comfy, great for groups or romantic dates. Guys can show off you can cook! 😉
Pricing: As you can see the prices here and on their website, very surprisingly affordable!
I just realised that I have not written anything on this stall in Eunos after patronizing for more than a decade. Maybe because when of the long period I was in China. It’s just so good to rekindle with the awesome food here. One thing that I didn’t notice from the last time is that this stall is actually halal certified. So Muslim friends can also eat from the stall.
Rating : 4.5/5.
Taste: I love the BBQ half chicken with fragrant rice. Really value for money on top of the juicy and tender chicken! The rice is similar to chicken rice type hence taste more awesome with the chicken rice chilli sauce they provide. Their fried wings are also very good at $1.30 each, although less healthier.
Another attempt to write using my iPhone. I’m KIM is a Korean BBQ restaurant opened not too long ago at School Of The Arts (SOTA) just beside Cathay cinema. Conveniently located right in front of the bus stop, this restaurant occupies a couple of units at the ground floor of SOTA. I met an old friend there for dinner one day and was early so I decided to go around taking pics! 😉 The Manageress of the place was very hospitable and she made me feel comfy as soon as I entered.
FACADE & INTERIOR
Taste: Food wise, both raw and cooked, are very nice. In fact, just the cooked buffet spread alone was enough to fill me up! I heard there are even more selection now since I last visited! Time to revisit! 😉
Ambience: Big and spacious. As per all BBQ restaurants, you leave the place smelling like the place. But most importantly, seating is spacious and comfy. Even for Big Roy!
Service: Very good. Service staff are very responsive.
Price: $19.90 promotion for dinner. Check out their FB page for promotions! (Link below)
