This morning me and my friend went to Holland Village to have breakfast at one of the cafe there. After we finished, when we walked to the bus stop my friend told me about this Japanese Restaurant on the way. The name is Sanpoutei Ramen and she said it usually very crowded so we have to queue early if possible. Their ramen is using fish broth and my friend recommended it. So we decided to eat there for lunch.
I stayed around the area until lunch time, while waiting for my friend. There is a small park where I can sit and enjoy the weather. Then I also remembered there is a good pet shop in the area, called “All breed pet shop”, so I visited them. Next, I waited in a coffee shop, Costa Coffee while updating my blog (but haven’t posted and now I’m writing this one instead… oops :D). I mistakenly order a heavy drink (which made me couldn’t finished the noodle at lunch!). I thought it was a hot green tea, but it was ice-blended (frostino) instead. Morning brain fart..

Around 11.55 am my friend came, and we entered the restaurant. I supposed to queue for us though but I saw no line in front of the restaurant so I didn’t queue but sitting on the bench near by while watching the restaurant in case they suddenly have people queuing. I think the staff there was suspicious at me since I watched the restaurant for quite some time while waiting for my friend lol.
We sat down at the table appointed to us, and the guy brought me a box to put my bag in it. It didn’t take long for us to order since we know what to order already. I wanted to try their rice dish but maybe next time.. was still full from the green tea drink.
Both of us ordered shoyu ramen with soft-boiled egg. It’s their specialty.
The noodle came so fast and we dig in immediately. First, I tried the soup. Fresh! If you like rich type of soup, maybe this is not your cup of tea. Bamboo shoot was yummy. Soft-boiled egg was delicious and cooked perfectly. Noodle is thin and chewy. Overall it is recommended to try.
Have you tried this before? What do you think of this ramen? Do let me know in the comment! Thank you for reading.
When I’m visiting Singapore, at 1 point I have no idea where to eat for dinner because too many options there and I somehow always ended up in Orchard Road (and get bored from eating at the same place for each visit). Luckily, I have a friend who lives and work in Singapore so she can tell me the place to eat with reasonable price.
She invited me to a Korean restaurant in 313 Shopping Mall. I was a bit hesitated. A Korean restaurant in Orchard Area? Sounds expensive. But knowing her, she wouldn’t invite me to an expensive place, so it would be okay. We met at 313 Shopping Mall and walked to basement floor where this Masizzim located. It doesn’t look like a Korean restaurant at all. I saw this place before and I thought it was some fancy place.
We sat down and started browsing at the menu right away. Since my friend has been there before, she already knew what to order. She said their rice ball is delicious, so we ordered that. There are different kinds of rice ball but we chose the one with anchovy. We also ordered Tuna Seaweed Eggroll as side dish.
It didn’t take long for the rice ball to come. It is basically just rice topped with seaweed, fish roe, anchovy, sesame seed. The unique thing is we have to mix it by our self. They gave us a pair plastic gloves. My friend offered me to make the rice ball since she likes doing it. Once she done, we began eating! We both were quite starving lol.
The rice ball is very delicious! I LOVE IT! The taste was perfect and it was not fishy. We finished it in no time! Yum! Their tuna seaweed eggroll also delicious. It was soft and tasty.
Another friend of mine came as well, so we took that chance to order another portion of rice ball! Plus deep fried spareribs. It looked interesting when it came. We, Indonesian, like fried food. So this spareribs was awesome looking. Unfortunately, it was just the appearance. We put this dish as least favorite among our other order.
So, I recommend this place if you want something unique and yummy. The price also reasonable. Not crazyly expensive for a restaurant in a mall at Orchard Road. I definitely will come back again! Thank you for showing me this place, Pris!
Filipino food is one kind of food that I’ve never tried before. On my last visit to Singapore, my friend invited me to this restaurant in Lucky Plaza Food Court. Since I didn’t know anything about it, I let her ordered for us while I and another friend were sitting on empty seats. It is hard to find a place to sit during peak hour and we were lucky enough to get it close to the food stall.
The stall called Lutong Pinoy. There were many Filipinos around enjoying the food from this stall. That is why I called it Authentic Filipino Food 😀 My friend also knew it from her Filipino friend. After waiting for a short time, she came back with a big bowl of bone soup! We have similar dish in Indonesia, called oxtail soup. This one called Bulalo. It was tasty, especially if you added lime before. But it was a bit beefy for my taste. The strong smell of beef was still there, so if you don’t like the smell better do not order this dish. Although I must say, you should try it at least. The portion was big! It was enough for the 3 of us.
Another dish she ordered was Sisig. It came with a raw egg on top and she had to mix it immediately while the plate still hot. This dish didn’t look interesting at all but the taste was to die for! It was very delicious. I asked my friend what’s in there, and when she mentioned it halfway I asked her to stop. I don’t care what’s in there anymore! It is good and that is the only one you need to know 😀 In case you’re wondering, it’s a part of pork, not beef or chicken.
The total cost for 2 dishes and 3 steamed rice were SGD 26. It was quite cheap for a full happy tummy.
