Wang Family Kitchen

How far would you go to try on new food? Luckily for me, it is easy to travel around Singapore due to their amazing public transport. So, this time I went to Hillview area, which is located in Bukit Batok. I was invited by my friend on her birthday to have dinner there. When she told me about this restaurant, I was excited and couldn’t wait to try it. They only make meal sets, which are different every day! Of course, there are some side dishes that are almost every day included in the set menu. The food they are served is Korean home-cooking style.

The restaurant is located in Hillview Community Club on the 1st floor. When we came, there was only 1 table left and the uncle let us sit there. After we sat, we saw a queue outside. How lucky! I only saw three people managing that restaurant. The couple, who are in charge of the dining hall, and 1 lady as a cook. That day they also have a special set with beef ribs soup, so the uncle asked us which set menu we wanted. We told him we wanted the normal set for 2 pax. The food took quite some time to prepare, but it was all worth it!

We can check the menu on their Instagram account @wangfamilykitchen. They posted every day what was on the set. We went there on June 16th, and their menu set consisted of Gimbap (Korean rolls), Yangnyeom-chicken (Seasoned Fried Chicken), Jjolmyeon (Spicy, chewy, sweet and sour cold noodles), Grilled Saba Fish (Grilled Mackerel), Miyeok Julgi Bokkeun (Stir-fried seaweed stem), Homemade Mashed Potato Korean Style, Gyeranmari (Rolled omelet), Kimchi, White Rice, plus Soup of the day which was Soybean Sprouts Soup. Don’t worry, they all came in a small portion. But yes, it IS still A LOT lol.

Of all these, I managed to finish Gimbap (Korean rolls), Yangnyeom-chicken (Seasoned Fried Chicken), Grilled Saba Fish (Grilled Mackerel), Miyeok Julgi Bokkeun (Stir-fried seaweed stem), Homemade Mashed Potato Korean Style, and White Rice. They were all delicious and I really enjoyed them. It can be considered as comfort food for me. Their Jjolmyeon (Spicy, chewy, sweet and sour cold noodles) actually was yummy as well but it was too spicy for me, unfortunately, so I couldn’t finish it. Well, the other reason was that I need to spare space for their dessert. Their kimchi

I am not a fan of omelets, and I also thought that their Gyeranmari (Rolled omelet) was too dry and not fluffy enough for my taste. Their Kimchi is also not that great in my opinion. It lacks spicy, sour, and salty taste, so it is rather bland. The Soybean Sprouts Soup was okay, actually, I almost finished it.

After we finished our meal, it was time to wait for the dessert. According to my friend, their desserts are always watermelon and a waffle. I wondered why no ice cream on the waffle, and I found out the answer when it came! I tried the waffle first and O.M.G.. it was sooo good! The outer was crispy, and when I bite it has a chewy texture. The sweetness was also on spot, just as I like it. The waffle was still warm as well! Meaning it was fresh from the kitchen. I was so happy after chomping it all. Happy tummy! And all that for only $17.90 nett. No service charge, No GST. Wow.

Watermelon and a waffle

I definitely will come back again next time! And maybe will also try the coffee shop next to it. I heard they sell good coffees.

Baileys Boboshake Heytea

When I first saw their ads for this drink, I was so excited to try it. It’s Baileys and Boba, and made by one of my favorites tea shops. I thought it was just a limited event so I didn’t expect to see it still on the menu when I was at Heytea. Without thinking, I ordered it. It’s quite expensive though. S$9.9 for this drink. Pricey indeed. But hey, it’s Baileys!

After waiting for about 10 minutes, I finally received my drink. It was when social distancing started to be implemented in stores so they didn’t have enough people to cater the orders that were coming. So, long queue for making the drinks was expected.

Unfortunately, the taste didn’t live up to the long wait and the price. I barely tasted the Baileys and the I didn’t like the boba (it was kind of hard, not chewy). It tasted like a slush ice with a little bit of Baileys in it. At least, that’s what it tasted like for me. But, I saw many reviews saying it was nice, so it all comes back to personal preferences.

Have you tried it yourself? Please share your experience in the comment šŸ™‚

Ice Lab – Korean Bingsoo In Singapore

After our lunch at Lutong Pinoy, my friend Pris recommended a Korean Ice Dessert. It is on Orchard Road as well and we took a round trip underground to avoid the bright noon sun. I had no idea where it is so I just followed her. We did stop at several places along the way for window shopping.

Apparently, the Ice Shop is located in the front area of 313 Shopping Mall. I saw this place before when I walked back to ourĀ hotel the other day, and they were closed already. At that time, I already thought that I should try this place. What a coincidence!

The three of us came in and discussed which bingsoo we want to try. They have many kindsĀ of Bingsoo and they all look yummy! We decided to try their special menu, Coffee Bingsoo! Yup only 1 for the three of us, should be more than enough.

The place was very busy when we came. Most visitors were teenagers or maybe some college students. We had to wait until they have space for us before we could order anything. Once the table was ready, she took our order and after payment, another staff took us to our table.

Not long after, our order is ready! Coffee Bingsoo, looks very delicious and sweet lol. All of us immediately got busy taking photos of this Korean Ice Slush. They also give free water to us, self-serviceĀ on a special corner for water. After all the “preparation” done, we dug in!

Coffee Bingsoo Ice Lab Singapore

This is like the best Korean Bingsoo I’ve ever tried. The ice slush was very smooth and overall taste was not too sweet. We couldn’t finish it in the end. Maybe if we had the 4th person in the group, we could finish that.

Very recommended for Korean Bingsoo lover!

Let me know how is your experience with this Ice Lab and which Bingsoo did you try in theĀ comment.

Dessert Pizza @ Pizza 4Ps

Been many times to Pizza 4Ps made us curious about their dessert pizza. We had a hard time choosing the one we want. It was between apple cinnamon and raspberry kiwi. Then the waitress told us that we could order half and half! Awesome! So every pizza in pizza 4Ps is possible to make half and half.

This is it our dessert pizza. Each one of us took 1 slice and I took a picture (the truth is I forgot to take it before! ><). I expected the apple cinnamon would taste better than raspberry one, but I was wrong. Yes it tasted good, nothing can go wrong with apple and cinnamon. But the raspberry one tasted even better! The sweet and sour were perfect. I like this one better because it tasted more refreshing as a dessert.

How about you? Have you tried their dessert pizza? Please let me know your favorite in comment below!
