Kungfu Paradise


I never know it can be an interesting affair to have baked rice. And, by naming it ‘babe’ rice then baked rice does added an mischief element to make it exciting. There are the usual Mushroom ‘babe’ rice, Sausage ‘babe’ rice to the Chickchop ‘babe’ rice and to those with hamburger patty, fried fish added. A selection of tomato sauce, cream sauce and curry sauce are available to further customise the taste to suit one’s taste bud perfectly.

I decided to go with the most basic tomato sauce Sausage ‘babe’ rice. The attentive waiter reminded me to be careful when it was served piping hot in 10 minutes. It was the personal touch that helped to perfect a dining experience.

The sausages served with a generous amount of cheese that melted perfectly to give it the oomph. I could taste the bits and pieces of tomato in the nicely balanced sweet and sour tomato sauce. When i dug into the baked rice, i stopped to watch the escapade of the hot steam.

It left a great smile on my face when done eating.

I decided to choose the Chicken Chop Chop amongst the other items and to pay an extra of $3.90 to Power Up. I was served rather quickly with my choice of drink - Bubblegum Soda. Bubblegum Soda tasted interestingly unusual with the right balance of sweetness.
My Chicken Chop Chop consists of a piece of well seasoned chicken nicely pan-fried to a perfect crispiness served along with BBQ tasting sauce to enhance its flavor further. It served with a handful of fresh tasting lettuce with shredded red cabbage. It came with a good portion of french fries. The fries still got a slight crispiness after left it for a bit. I would like to commend the amazing efforts in serving the chilli and ketchup in packets rather than in the usual bottles.

I was excited when i took notice of the recommendation by Makansutra as stated in their menu. I went ahead to order a basket of 3 buns. I put aside the half eaten main course and grab one of those buns quickly when it served.
All these buns were served piping hot. The size of these buns is of the bite sized. It makes perfect sense to throw it right into your mouth and experienced the outburst of the custard right there. If you prefer to enjoy it slowly then be careful to bite it gently then slowly suck out the custard a little before releasing it as this is to avoid wasting the delicious custard filling by allowing it overflow.
 The custard has got a rich and creamy salted egg taste enclosed in a soft and fluffy skin.

4Fingers Crispy Chicken

This was another first time experience. I proceed to order at the counter, paid up and collected my drink. The set consists of a piece of chicken drumstick, 3 pieces of chicken wings and a handful of nicely seasoned fries. 

The pre-fried chicken wings and drumstick were coated with the sauce of your choice at your preferred level of spiciness.

Relish Garden

The first visit to RELISH was a pleasant one.

I have heard so much of Willin Low, the celebrity chef that decided to quit been a lawyer and to become a Chef. Relish is the second outlet after the main one at Cluny Court. It serves mainly burgers from the traditional beef burger to Blue Cheese Burger, Japanese Curry Chicken Katsu Burger, Soft Bone Char Siew Burger and more. 

I have acquired the vouchers from Groupon to visit Relish for the first time. I called to make a reservation to use the vouchers as required. The cafe is tugged away in a corner of the second level of myVillage. I went for lunch and the place was rather quiet with only 3 tables occupied. The simply decorated cafe given a bright and cheery impression. It is a cosy place to have a quiet afternoon just hanging out with a couple of friends for a good lunch or just coffee with cakes.

The waiting staff collected the vouchers then ushered us to a table by the windows. They served the soft drinks and the utensils right after. 

The vouchers were for a set of Wild Rocket Beef Burger and a set of Japanese Curry Chicken Katsu Burger. Both sets served with chunky fries and canned soft drinks. The waiting time was about 15 minutes.

The Wild Rocket Beef Burger consists of a nicely grilled well-seasoned beef patty garnished with a handful of wild rocket leaves served with nicely toasted sesame buns. The patty was done to perfection to leave a sight pinkish underneath the charred surface. The texture was impressively succulent. It coupled with sun dried tomatoes to give it a refreshing twist. 

The Japanese Curry Chicken Katsu Burger comprises a nicely fried chicken patty seated on a pile of finely shredded cabbage served with the Japanese curry sauce on sesame buns. 

The only disappointment got to be those chunky fries. It was warm and not hot with a slightly soggy texture. Its taste would be enhanced if it is seasoned with a little more salt. 

The prices might be a bit on the steep side but the quality of the foods served made up for it.

Cosy ambiance coupled with attentive service, this is definitely a place to be re-visited again.
