A happily exhausted weekend there is !! Heartfelt thanks to all who support Chunky Cooky’s cookies at the Public Garden flea @ the National Museum on 27-28 April. In fact, cookies were sold out way before the event ended on both days !! I was indeed very very pleased since it was my first time selling cookies at a flea, and especially it is something that is borne out of a passion for baking. ^-^
Hoping that Chunky Cooky can reach out to more people, so here we are, planning for our next event so that we can share our loved cookies with more !! We will keep everyone updated on our movements yeah… so stay anticipated….
And to give myself a little reward and replenish my energy for having worked so hard, dinner is at newly opened MOF@My Izakaya at Tiong Bahru Plaza. Haha.. so now you know where I stayed… TB plaza has had quite a number of revamps in the recent months with several food places changing hands. MOF@My Izakaya is a new reborn of the previous Beppu Ramen located at the 2nd floor of TB plaza, besides newly opened Gong Cha as well.
With much anticipation for this new outlet as there was a queue forming even in the early hours of dinner time ~~
A decent root beer float to start the meal ! I must have been missing much on our preloved A&W…seriously speaking, will it ever come back again ??!! I really loved the waffles and curly fries to bits and so far, found no close competition to it. Please don’t make me travel all the way to another country just to have you…. plssss…….
With a top up of $3.50 to most main courses, you get to enjoy this as an appetiser… Chawanmushi was indeed delicate and smooth custardly texture wins a both thumbs up.
The scallops and white clams on teriyaki based pasta was a huge disappointment. Pasta was tough and teriyaki paste was not distinct. Though the presentation did help to score a few extra points to the dish, the portion was abit small for one helping and wasn’t quite filling at all.
The seafood ramen on miso soup was another disappointment too. Ramen wasn’t cooked to the right q-ness and the miso soup which was rather bland seems to add salt to the wound. There and then, we came to a conclusion that noodles/ramen are indeed not the signatures of their menu.
Fortunately, the Inari set which comes at a price of $16.80 for 8 pieces of individual flavour ended the meal on a good note. Each piece of Inari was kind of bigger than our usual sizae of Inari from sushi kiosk. Other than the sushi rice could be further improved by adding abit more sweetness, the inari were generally delectable. Especially when they have jellyfish and tuna Inari which are quite my favourites, the ability to have all flavours in one Inari set appeal well to families where each different member has their own unique preference.
And did you realised… as what my colleague cleverly mentioned… this week is a pretty much Mon-Fri-Wed-Mon-Fri mood ? If you know what I means… TGIF is approaching… have you had your plans for the weekend already ? ^-^
