Korean Cuisine @ NTU Canteen 13

Advertisements

Heard about this place for the longest time and wanted to try ever since… finally one of my trips back to SG I drove about 20km there, met up with some friends working there, and checked out the place. Arrived the place during lunch so naturally a bit crowded. There was a queue for the Korean stall but didn’t have to wait very long so it was alright.

The stall
Very busy counter front...
Had the fish set for only $4... or was it $4.50? Comes with rice and kimchi... extra kimchi can be ordered for extra $0.50.
Fish is fresh but only half. For the price is ok lah. 🙂
While you're there, another must try is the ice coffee... thick and smooth! Really unexpected!

Rating: 4/5. Maybe the beef bologi or bibimbab would be nicer. Will try the next time there.

Taste: The fish set I had was light and not so heavily taste which I was looking for that day. So it was good.

Portion: Average

Price: $4.00 per set

RTE: Maybe… a bit far…

Location: Canteen 13 NTU

大塘烧鹅 @ 海珠广场,广州

If you are in Guangzhou and you would like to try something that locals have on daily basis, you might wanna check out this place. It’s famous among locals for its roast goose and it’s economical rice. Located just opposite Guangzhou Hotel, at Haizhu Square, the place is very easy to find as it’s along the main road.

Very friendly girl who takes orders and payments first before proceeding to collect your food.
They sell loads of these roast goose daily
So after taking your plate of rice, find a seat, they will serve you a cup of super diluted tea and people will just eat loudly around you. 🙂
My plate of roast goose with char siew and some side vegetables. RMB$20 only.

Rating: 4/5

Taste: Could be better but this is kind alike economical rice. So cannot compare with those retaurant type where you pay like RMB$88 for a small plate of meat. So to me, it’s good enough.

Portion: Above average.

Price: RMB$20

RTE: Yes if I’m around the place again.

Location: Opposite Guangzhou Hotel, Haizhu Square.

With a title like that, I reckon some of you must be wondering… WTH… IKEA? Like we don’t know! Yeah I believe most of you don’t know yet, but IKEA serves one of the best breakfasts around and it’s super duper affordable!

Met up with my business associates this morning for breakfast and I was amazed by my discovery!

Nice ambience & not too crowded like lunch time or weekends
Scrambled Eggs Set. Croissant is big! Only $3.00... yes $3.00...
Vegetarian Beehoon... Only $1.80... yes, $1.80 only... Very nice.

 

yum yum
The sauce looks bland but it's very tasty!
Free 2 cups of coffees if you're a member! Remember to remove the stick after stirring. Cos it'll change the taste of the coffee.

Rating: 4.5/5 (Would be perfect if the scrambled eggs set is a little warmer. But, it’s alright with me, I eat cold food!)

Taste: Scrambled eggs set is nice and value for money. Vegetarian Beehoon is really nice. But if you’re a strict Vegan, the beehoon is not good for you cos they use garlic to fry it. Something you may wanna take note. 🙂

Portion: Scrambled Eggs Set is good and the croissant is bigger than most places. Vegetarian Beehoon is portioned reasonably as well and has a lot of ingredients.

Price: Scrambled Eggs Set ($3.00), Vegetarian Beehoon ($1.80), Coffee (Free & Refillable if you’re an IKEA member), Water (Free)

RTE: Yes definitely whenever I’m around that area… now we’re considering holding our meetings there already… haha…
