I am so glad that there’s a Korean food place in the new NUH medical centre basement 1 (beside Kent Ridge MRT station). It’s those kind of express Korean food which we normally see in the food court. My colleague and I have been eating the hotplate spicy chicken with rice whenever we go there. This time round, I decided to try the Salmon curry rice. The salmon is not bad but the curry is a bit blend. For the price I pay, I am not going to complain too much. =)
Still prefer the spicy chicken and rice.
Had another outing end of last month with the CCC ladies. Only 4 of us could make it to the gathering. =(
Anyway, we chose New Harbour Cafe and Bar at Tanjong Pagar road because we missed the sio bak (roasted pork belly) and hokkien mee!
No gathering is legit without alcohol~
This is one of our favourites: White clams in beer stock.
Each clam is so fat and juicy. The stock is very flavorful and good for slurping~
Next favourite is the Mah Mee. It’s actually fried hokkien prawn noodles with the addition of clams and Chinese sausage. Each strand of noodles is nicely coated with the thick gravy. Together with the egg and garlic, the flavor is so rich and you will definitely be craving for more. Although this is not the al dente kind of noodles, it’s also not too soggy. It’s best eaten with the blended red chilli which will numb your tongue for a while. Do try it even if you can’t take spicy food because there’s always beer to cool you down~
This is another favourite item there: Roast Pork Belly (Sio Bak in dialect)! Because of its popularity and quality, the waiting time is longer than the other food item. So make sure you order this first before you decide on what else to eat.
Not sure if you can see from the picture, there’s minimal fat in the roasted pork belly, almost no fat layer! Despite the minimal fat layer, the meat is really tender and the skin is super crispy. I couldn’t hear what the ladies were talking about when I was chewing on the skin.
The meat is served with a black sweet chilli sauce and the blended red chili. Eat them together for even better flavor~
LOL~ I sound like the Sio Bak’s spokesperson.
Something that is not commonly found in a bar: Salmon Sashimi~
Still feeling hungry, we ordered another round of Mah Mee and some fries~
The total bill of 4 pints of beer plus the food above only cost us $130.80. There’s no GST and service charge~!
Post dinner drinks was at one of the bars along Tanjong Pagar road~
We continued on our cafe hunt and landed in Flock Cafe.
It’s pretty crowded on weekends and it took us a while to get a table.
Initially I wanted to try the pasta, but Pakcik “forbids” me to. He said that since it’s brunch, I should order something from the All-Day Breakfast menu.
And that’s how I ended up with the Scrambled Eggs & Croissant with Smoked Salmon ($14.90).
I think I made the right choice because the croissant was really good! It’s buttery, crispy, and tastes great on its own~ Scrambled eggs were done perfectly as well. Thumbs up!
Pakcik’s Cheeky Eggs ($16.90) was pretty good. The 2 poached eggs sat on braised pork cheek and English muffin, and topped with Hollandaise sauce and rocket lettuce. Since I like rocket lettuce, this breakfast dish definitely wins my heart.
I did the “opening ceremony” for Pakcik~
Love how the yolk oozes out from the firm whites.
I took a video of the egg cutting ceremony. The yolk did a little peekaboo with me…
We had a cup of Long Black ($4.80) to end the meal~
