Weekend Dinner Cooked with Love, Enjoyed by Family

Oh what a Saturday feast!

Oh what a Saturday feast!

Oh, did I mention that my wife is an excellent cook? Maybe that is stating the obvious, judging from the photographs on display and the fact that I gained more than 30 kilograms after meeting her. Now I’m suffering trying to lose my excess weight…. but well, I can’t complain much, I’ve been having it too good already 🙂 I’ll be posting pictures of my home-cooked dinners from time to time, to make all of you salivate. Well, if you really can’t resist anymore, then you can make an appointment to come to my place for dinner. Just give my wife a nice big Ang Pow for her efforts! 🙂 I can assure you, good home-cooked food is priceless…

Our dinner for the recent Saturday’s gastronomical delight: Pineapple Rice, Egg rolls with Minced Meat, Sliced Beef Rolls with Oyster Mushrooms and other Veggies, Baked chicken with Secret Herbs and Spices… I don’t know which spices, hence the “secret” label. 😛

Tonight is the second night in a row that I have been greeted with a sheepish smile by the first staff I meet at the eatery, with the staff able to call me by my name… It seems like all of my Hillgrove Students are out working as service staff to make some extra cash after their graduating examinations. The one tonight even asked me for advice on which course he should take in ITE! Interesting, I wonder what God is trying to tell me these few days..

Anyway, sadly, the food tonight wasn’t as good as the food yesterday. The standards at this outlet haven’t been very consistent, to say the least. When we first came, it was terrible. Then, the last few times, it got better. Today, it was back to terrible.

Well at least the seafood salad was nice, and my wife’s prawn omelette rice was nice, although a little too salty this time.

My Red Tom Yum Fish soup was too milky… tasted really different from the last time. The sago in the desert too sticky, with a funny taste. Even the green curry balls were not as nice as before.

I’ll be thinking twice about coming back to this outlet. So far the Thai Express at Holland Village seems to be the most reliable and consistent outlet in terms of its food.

RATINGS

Seafood Salad: 8/10

Prawn Omelette Rice: 8/10

Red Tom Yum Fish Set: 4/10

Service: 7/10 (The good thing is that now they serve water in a big jug beside your table for easy refills!)

Dinner Date @ Fish & Co (Clementi Mall Outlet)

There is no better way to start the week after a long tiring Monday back at work than to cheer yourself up with a nice dinner date with that special someone in your life!

Today both of us were feeling hungry, and we decided to go for a good meal at Fish & Co.

This is our second time patronising this outlet, and we ordered our usual order of a Platter for 2, topped up with an upgrade with a soup of the day (Seafood Chowder, yummy!) and a special fizzy tonic drink.

I must say, the food was really delicious, and consistently so for both our visits. The fries and rice were nicely done, not too hard or soft. The calamari was succulent and tasty. The prawns were deliciously fresh. The mussels were nicely drenched in garlic butter sauce. The fish was soft and tasty. It was really a good meal, and as my wife put it, “WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LIKE?” The price was also reasonable for such a sumptuous meal – $48 for the upgraded meal, inclusive of service charge and GST, and also factoring in a 10% of for using your Citibank Credit Card to make payment.

The extra plus was that the service staff at this outlet were friendly and eager to please, Kudos to the restaurant for a wonderful dinner date! 🙂 As you can see, we cleared the whole plate… nothing was left except the shells from the mussels and prawns! 🙂

RATING:

Food – 10/10

Service – 8/10 (Staff friendly and helpful but too busy! Also they forgot our mints!)
