Today i went in to the totally EMPTY restaurant at 6pm just to try their highly rated beancurd ($4.90 after taxes).

Sin Hoi Sai

Wanted to have some simple chinese food for dinner tonight
so we headed down to this always crowded cze char place.
not too sure if we didnt order the right stuffs or what
i wasnt very please with this meal.
I ordered the salty veg duck soup, is like the worst soup i ever drink
is really very bad.
The beef noodle is very ordinary, beef is tender but tasteless.
Vegetables will not go wrong.
Hot Plate beancurd is average as well.

Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro

overall this is a pleasant dinner.
i'm so happy with every dish that we ordered.
we polished off everything on our plates
i am definately coming back many more times.
it's been awhile since i get to enjoy such happy meal

The man just gets very angry and say NO PHOTO PLEASE.
The place is generally small but it doesnt affect me at all
the ambience is nice and every table although cramp has its own degree of privacy.
The restaurant gets really packed at 8pm and many diners were turned down as its really crowded.
Each table has a fast turn over rate and on a monday for such high table. I guess their food is good eh ?

There is a large selections of fresh fish, oysters, crabs, lobsters etc etc.
Mainly fresh seafood in Fish Market.
U can choose the kind of seafood and cook anyway u like.
Else u can just ask for the catch of the day like i did.
It came really fresh and good.

I ordered smoked seafood salad, a fish and chip, Grilled Lobster and the catch of the day.
We were given a looked ordinary complimentary bread. But it aint ordinary at all.
I cant help but asking the waiter for more.

The starter begin with panfried scallops and fried salmon.
The scallops are so good that my mom finished everything and the salmon doesnt have tht fishy cooked salmon taste.

The lobster came looking really delicious.( Pardon for the bad photo. The place is really dark and i had to use flash)
Topped the lobster is this very interesting sauce that i really like.

The catch of the day came with some greens and mashed potato.

The fish and chips here are very famous.
i guess 50% of the diners tonite ordered their fish and chips.
I like both the chips and the fish very much.
Is the closest i can get compared to OZ's fish and chips.

I can just say everything here is 100% fresh.
i'm coming back to try more of their food as well as their pasta.
Do look out for their daily special as it can get really affordable.
Like my monday lobster such size and freshness for only $39.90 where else in Singapore can u get that ?

teh terik and soft bun

anybody who passes by china square will notice the long queue at the teh terik push cart
these days teh terik uncle made enough money to upgrade himself from a cart to a stall
he moved in and have a large space and a shop of his own.

standard of ice drinks remained
but somehow the teh terik is just average
gone is the nice teh terik but wat's new is this nice soft bun.
toasted to the right texture with butter and kaya that goes totally well with the tea.
so shiok on a rainy day.

Wanted to pop over Hacienda for dinner
Then after looking at the menu then we realise they don't quite serve proper dinner except Sunday
so i ordered what they have on their menu.
Quite a waste that such nice place do not offer dinners more options.
Kinder diappointing to their service when the first two things i ordered was not avail.
I asked for crab cakes they told me don't have, i asked for whole coconut they told me don't have either.

The mojitos are decent
Pizza is interesting i dont mind eating more, mini wagyu burger is normal
Chicken tenders and wedges are prepack fozen stuffs.

Its a nice place to chill and drink beer on a good day .
Their beverages are indeed cheap.
