Jai Thai Restaurant

Had a sudden craving for Thai food and found this "reserved" Thai restauarant amidst Purvis Street.

They have limited seatings both indoor and outdoor, but no doubt a place for authentic Thai food :)





Want to be rich? Jai Thai has a way :P Selling at SGD19.90, it seems to be written by Jai Thai's Boss, himself!



Here is their menu. You will also be given a piece of order paper to check your selections against. Desserts and drinks, and snacks are not listed in the order paper. If you looking to order those, you gotta speak up to them!

Malaysia, Genting Highlands (Part Three) - Marrybrown

continued from...

I believed most of you have heard of Marrybrown long before. Not an exception, Marrybrown comes to my mind for fast food.



Ordered family combo, which  consists of 8 pieces of chicken, 2 drinks, coleslaw and mashed potato each. Totaling to RM56 (rounded up). Cripsy skin, and not-so oily chicken meat. So much better than our KFC, which is too oily, and some times too much chicken fats underneath the skin.



Also had the Tower Burger, for just the burger itself at less than RM12 I think. It seems like the Macdonald's Double McSpicy burger, with the difference that this is not spicy. But this burger is equally yummy!



Ordered this for side order. Forgot what it was called, but it is like our Macdonald's hashbrown, in mini cubes.



Something different isn't it? :)

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant is situated in the lobby of Hotel Miramar. You may be expecting high-rated prices for restaurants in hotels, but this is rather worth it, if not for the long waiting time, items that never appear, or wrong item served after placing the orders.



Luckily, we made reservations, as walk-in seems almost impossible in the weekdays due to limited seats. I took a quick glance of their reservation list of this particular day I visited them, and the list is almost full...

We were brought to our seats soon enough. They have 3 areas for counter seats (one of which is actually a cashier counter), while the rest are normal tables.



This is the cashier counter.

Pasted on the walls of the entrance and the cashier wall, are photos of celebrities who have been here. Can you spot your favorite celebrity among these massive photos?

Malaysia, Genting Highlands (Part Two) - Happy Valley Seafood Restaurant

continued from...

After a disappointing lunch, did a walk around Genting and settled down at this restaurant for dinner. It was quite empty probably due to a Sunday. But food wise, it is much better than what I had for lunch.

Sambal Squid was not that spicy, and neither was it bouncy.

Ramen Keisuke Tori King

It was an impromptu decision to visit Ramen Keisuke Tori King. Initially I was hesitant between Keisuke Tori King and Keisuke Tonkotsu King. It was then decided since it is in a shopping mall, plus it was raining quite heavily that day and parking is a lot more easier.



Not a very big restaurant, but still can expect friendly and fast service. Two points awarded for this :)



I like how they pasted some comic strips on their walls. If you have taken Japanese language before, this could occupy you for a short while, while your food is being prepared.

Folks Collective

New restaurant in CBD!

Opened since last month, chef and the boss himself are authentic Thais, which you can expect some authentic Thai food to be served! Located in China Square Central, it should be one of the favorite spot among the white-collars during the weekdays.



Spacious and adequate gap between tables. Lots of effort put in to decor up this cosy restaurant!







Menu comes in sheets of paper, clipped on to a wood plate? This look interesting ya...



As they are on soft launch, menu is still not fixed at the moment. So exepct on your future visits to have more food added to their lists :)

Malaysia, Genting Highlands (Part One) - Ah Yat Abalone Forum Restaurant

It has been years since I last went to Genting.. Wait.. At least 6 years... I can't remember how it used to look like, but basically it still looks kinda boring, unless you are ready to immerse into "stomaching" yourself with food and snacks, theme attractions, and also numbers of casinos spread throughout.

I have never entered Casino before. Yes, including our very own Singapore ones as I have no interest in gambling. Nevertheless, I took a walk-in during this trip, and it looks roughly the same as I have thought, in terms of ambience. But not as grand as I had imagined :(

Enough of my crap, and off to some random food I had.

I reached there around late morning, and managed to check-in my hotel room, and had some rest before lunch. Went to "Restoran Ah Yat Abalone Forum", located in First World Plaza. Sad to say, this is my first time patronizing them, and it was quite disappointing. It was a late lunch, and a number of dim sums were already taken out of the list. Those I had, does not seem yummy at all, and taste so-so only...

I have forgotten the dishes ordered, but hope the pictures are still able to serve as a good reference :)



Deep-fried Yam dim sum. Still quite like this, but on an average rating.









Fishball not! I still prefer the usual fishballs, bouncy ones :)



Made an order for roasted duck, but all their "quacks" have gone down the throat of others :'( Hence, gotta make do with roasted chicken. This was equally disappointing as the dim sums...



Service is good, but dislike the fact that they kept re-filling our tea cups even if I had just a sip minutes ago since their last refill. Otherwise, their cold towels are kinda refreshing! Price is cheap, but due to the food, I don't think I will visit them again on my next Genting Trip.
