Otah

Otah is a fish cake made with (besides the obvious) coconut milk and chilies. The mixture is steamed within coconut leaves and then grilled to order.


That’s what it looks like when it’s removed from the leaves. I had this with pork and chicken satay at Kwong Satay on   Lorong 29 in Geylang.


I also had a rice cake, ketupat with the satay. It’s nice because you can eat everything with your hands.

Wolf Burger

No, the meat isn’t that of Canis Lupus, but that of Bos Taurus, the common cow.


It was very good. They asked for the doneness of my burger and they used cheddar. I ordered it medium rare and that’s how it was cooked. 

It was dripping with so much meat juice that I had to switch it up and use a knife and a fork.


All of the ingredients were top-notch and the toasted bun was warm and soft. 


Wolf Burger is a stall located in Pasar Bella, located itself within Suntec City. 

It was an excellent burger, almost as good as the Burger Joint burger. 

Rose Lychee Pudding

After I watched the latest X Man movie I dropped by Bugis Junction to get groceries.


I wasn’t too hungry, but it was getting late and Sunday nights I prefer to chillax at home. I went to Paris Baguette and ordered that little jar of pudding and a Brie vegetable sandwich…on a baguette.


The sandwich was very good. The bread was crusty and there was sufficient Brie to please me. 

The pudding, although the portion was meager, was delicious. The flavors worked together and there was a layer of caramel syrup on the bottom of the jar. 

Crab Broth Ramen (Keisuke)

A week or so ago I bought a ticket for the latest X-Men movie and as I was looking for some place to have lunch, well lo and behold!

Keisuke’s crab broth ramen!


I love crab, but concentrated crab broth can be very strong without being tempered by cream or Sherry. In this case, the strong flavor of crab is moderated by pork broth and it’s wonderful.

I ordered the light broth and it was served with nori, roasted pick, chopped scallions and a perfect soft-boiled egg.

While I have been to the other Keisuke restaurant in Bugis several times, this was my first time at his crab broth restaurant, this one located inside Cineleisure Orchard.


Wasabi ginger ale was surprisingly good!


The spicy pickled cabbage was good. One bowl was enough for me. 

Pistachio Gelato

Covered in sweat, walking under the relentless tropical sun, I stopped off at the Gelato Factory in Seminyak and had a small serving of their pistachio gelato.


It is a testament to modernity that tourists from cold countries can enjoy Italian desserts near the Equator- in the Southern Hemisphere, actually. 

It was excellent, creamy and not overly sweet. 

Hainanese Chicken Sandwich

I had this the weekend before last at Seng Kee, the modern and upgraded local breakfast restaurant at Bugis Junction.


It was good and there was plenty of that orange chili sauce spread on the baguette. I opted for the set which included milk tea and a fruit dessert which was disappointing.


I didn’t know what it was and I said ‘soursop’ specifically but I recieved the sour plum flavor. A sour plum Popsicle is nothing special.
