Best Grilled Oxtail (Buntut Bakar) in Singapore

Sometime, I don’t know what I want to eat, but I know what kind of cuisine I want. For example, I know I want to eat Indonesian food, but I don’t know which one yet.. until I see the menu. That afternoon, I stopped by at Warung Surabaya at Lucky Plaza because I haven’t been there for a while and I was craving for Indonesian food. The last time I ate there, their food was awesome so I thought I wanna try other dish too.

It took me a while before decided what I want. Luckily, there was no queue behind me so I could take my time choosing the one I want. I can be greedy in term of food. In a way that I want to try them all. But I don’t have the capacity lol. So, I had to choose one! The winner was Grilled Oxtail. It’s been years since I ate one, so I was hoping this one is good.

When it came, I didn’t expect much. As long as it doesn’t taste too bad, I can eat it. At least it’s oxtail, which I like. But apparently, the dish exceeded my expectation. It was soooo yummy! Oxtails were tender, spices were generous and the portion was just perfect for me. Ohhh, my happy tummy~~

Head down to Lucky Plaza if you wanna try them! And you should, btw 🙂

Bijinmen Miso Butter @ Tsukada Nojo

Bijinmen is ramen with collagen soup. Tsukada Nojo specialize in collagen soup and especially hotpot. But if you go there in the afternoon, they will have the ramen menu. It’s been a while since I ate their ramen so this time I tried Bijinmen Miso Butter. For the noodle, I picked the thick mochi-mochi noodle. Last time I tried the thin one (tsururu noodle). I gotta say I prefer the think one because of the chewy and springy texture.

The noodle came in a very hot stone bowl. On top of it is the meat and condiments. The waitress helped me open the lid and reminded me for not touching the bowl because it’s very hot. I tried the soup and I liked it! Then for photo purposes, I put almost all of them to the soup (except for the beansprout). When I started eating it, the soup was turned bland.. I’m guessing maybe because I put many things in (?)..

Overall it was a great lunch. I would probably come again when I want a healthy ramen 😆 Too bad they don’t have ramen with spinach collagen broth. I love their spinach soup. Very tasty!

Baked Salmon Mentaiko and Soba by Haakon

Baked salmon fillet with mentaiko mayo, soba noodles, broccoli, purple cabbage slaw, charred corn, ginger ponzu sauce

This could be a nice combination if only the soba noodle was not too soggy. I don’t know if it is the way they cooked it or just a one-time overcooked noodle. Other than that, everything else was tasty. A nice option of healthy food to be delivered to our home by @grabfoodsg.

Soi 19 Thai Wonton Noodle – my favorite noodle

I’ve seen this noodle place at Upper Thomson shophouses area and been wanting to try it out but was not sure if they’re good (I didn’t check any review as well lol). But looking at their pic, the noodle seems very appealing to me. After I heard it from my friends, I decided to try it.. And WOW! I Love it!

The texture is springy, the original sauce is great AND every single topping is yummy.The wontons, chasiu, fish sausages, even the fried lard are also yummy (too bad they are very little though..). 

This noodle has become my favorite noodle in Singapore now! If you haven’t tried it, you should!

Ultimate Egg rice @ Tamago-EN

Tamago Kake Gohan! Been wanting to try this out but need a really fresh egg. Thankfully we found this restaurant that is relatively new in Novena Square. This supposed to be a breakfast menu in Japan, but heck, I had it for dinner instead. It uses raw egg but it doesn’t taste like raw egg. So yummy! I added Negitoro as topping. The trendy way to eat this is to add all the condiments (furikake and soy sauce) and mix it together. The fluffy white egg gives a mushy texture to the rice. Maybe I would like it even more if the white egg was not whipped (the traditional one as seen on Japanese Drama lol).
