Hi everyoneeeee…Did you consume and post about RICE last week ? With the theme of “RICE” surrounding this weeks winners, I am sure all of you had your own fair share of carbs!! Let’s find out who ate the best rice dishes and is walking away with the $50 vouchers NOW!
Location: Thai Gold Food
This Thai food restaurant is popular among students around the area and I can see why. The Pad Thai ($6), Pineapple Fried Rice ($6) and Tom Yum Talay ($10) have a homely taste and you can tell that they used fresh ingredients. A slight blooper was that my Pad Thai was a tad too soggy! Pair it with Thai Milk Tea ($1.80) for the complete Thai food experience!
Location: Kai Sushi & Robatayaki
The Pan Fried Terayaki Set is very tasty and nice, worth the try if u happen to dine in. The sashimi here is very very VERY delicious, it melts in your mouth. Highly recommended!
Una don ($19.8). Look at the thick slab of unagi and the long thick strips of tamago!! Recommended to get this here even though this is more of a udon place.
Location: Standing Sushi Bar
Visited the place for the very first time due to recommendation by my cousin. Had to savour the one and only wagyu beef wrapped foie gras because it was around $7(?) per piece. Literally let it roll around in my mouth, chew tenderly, savour the beef and foie gras, swirl it for roughly one minute before allowing it to enter my throat. Fantastic. Surprisingly good quality sushi and most of the dishes were outstanding. I mean there are always better sushi outlets but this fits my palette.

Very healthy lunch in town. The shop is famous for its mushroom udon. The mushroom udon was served in a thick and rich blended mushroom soup. The aroma of the mushroom attracts many customers to try it. It’s tasty but the richness overwhelms a little. Feel very healthy eating it but will feel a little jelat after a while. Their braised rice is mixed with cumin flavoured sauce, which makes it sweet instead. Definitely the place to go if you want to feel and eat healthy!
Location: Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice Restaurant
Chicken Rice & Hainanese Pork Chop! The fact that all it’s branches are situated in an air-conditioned area played a big part. The highlight of the dish was always the rice! Fluffy, fragrant and oily without being surfeiting. One of the rare times when we’ll want a second serving of carbs. The chicken was a hit or miss – there were days when it was perfectly cooked but also days when it was so dry thay we wanted to give up on it. Generally, it tasted amazing and i’m left craving for it every week. We also tried the pork chop this time round but it was quite disappointing. The meat was flattened and heavily battered till it was quite difficult to discern what meat we were having. Guess we’ll be sticking to the chicken rice!!
Location: Tendon Kohaku
My first time eating this and I must say, NO REGRETS. I was thinking, what’s so hyped about this japanese food. Though everything’s fried… Its literally fried till perfection. Crispy on the outside but the meat on the inside was juicy and tender. I’m already drooling just by thinking about it. You also get to choose your choice of rice. White or brown. Went with brown rice and chose spicy sauce. A little spicy but it comes with a little sweetness as well. Perfect combination!! It was $15 a bowl and I think it’s absolutely worth it because there were prawns, mushrooms, meat, veggie and fish. Try it!!!
Location: Tekka Market
A good plate of fried rice is one where there is strong wok hei, moist but not wet, lightly salted but not over powering and where each grain of rice is separated yet fluffy and coated with sauce i.e. not white rice anymore. Imaroy Thai Food at Tekka Centre gets it right! Seafood Fried rice for $4 is a comfort food on any day. One of my favourite Thai food places and definitely one of the most affordable ones in Singapore. Gets a little bit crowded during lunch but nothing too crazy.
Ordered the Nasi Briyani Set Meal ($17.90) that comes with a fried chicken, beef rendang, and sweet chili prawns, however as my dad was craving nasi lemak rice he changed it! All was still good but definitely kinda pricey! Fried Fish Head + Fillet Laksa ($13.90) – yellow mee and beehoon, with huge chunks of fried fish meat, super good and not too oily. Last but not least is my favourite Steamed Hainan Bread with butter and kaya ($3.90), the best out of them all for me! Super thick slices of bread, rich butter and sweet kaya!
Location: Hua Zai HK Style Roasted Delight
Food is definitely cheap considering the portion as well as the taste. Today’s rice was soft and fluffy with a hint of fragrant. Chicken was tender and saltiness was just right. Char siew had a good fat to meat ratio and wasn’t too jelak. The sio bak was a little disappointing given how the other 2 meat fared. However, it was still good for the price point.
