So Pho

Lemon Grass Chicken ($7.50++)

Life returns to normalcy in Singapore. The obedient citizens don their face masks and only go out for work, the supermarket or when they need to make a new pair of reading glasses, like today.

It was pretty enjoyable dining out as all restaurants practise safe distancing. There was much privacy and quiet. At So Pho, culinary was warmed and sterilised before giving to us.

Food tastes great. Not overly salted, as we have grown so used to home cooking.

Beef Tendon, Beef Ball Soup ($12.50++)
Beef & Beef Ball Soup ($10.80++)

Sushiro - Covid19 last dine-out

 Baby Scallop Gunkan ($3.20++), Fried Salmon Skin ($3.50++)
Seaweed Salad ($4.50++)

Sushiro, Japan's largest conveyor sushi chain opens its door at Woodland Causeway Point. It was unfortunate for them to hit this Covid wave; we thus wanted to show our support.

When we entered, their trim menu actually prompted us to leave. Haha. It looked too plain. But we decided to give it a go. And it proves too good! Order any of their seafood, and it will never go wrong; prices wise is definitely value.

The gem on our table today - Meaty fried salmon skin! and fatty salmon fish collar.

Dining out has been something we had all taken for granted, too long.
Go away Covid19! And we'll be back.

Our Favourite Pasta Place - in the mist of Covid19

Chicken Parmigiana ($11.50)

This has been our favourite haunt for a tranquil time together - at level 1, Gain City Sungei Kadut - Happy Café. Even before this Covid19 outbreak where everybody tries to dine at a secluded spot, we like coming here for a restful, air-conditioned lunch. Take your time over the 2 cashless self-ordering machine. And parking is free.

Food is prepared by a pretty Thai chef. Is affordable and generous in potion. Pictured here were some of our past orders - their aglio olio, grilled chicken and fish burger being our all-time favourite; not forgetting the iced Thai milk tea and dark kopi-o.

Wishing you good health and safety in this Covid19.
We will fight this together. And win.

Seafood Aglio Olio ($8.90)
Fish Burger ($5), Thai Milk Tea ($2.60)

Prawn Spaghetti Aglio Olio ($8.90)

Lunch @ Sakuraya Fish Mart (West Coast)

Been a long time, Sakuraya Fish Mart.

They used to be a small outlet offering raw seafood; now they are a full fledged restaurant for some nice Japanese home cooking. Nothing spectacular, but definitely soul food for me.

I recommend their value-for-money lunch menu; and you come decide if my claim is right.

Wasabi Flavoured Octopas ($3)


Swordfish Sashimi, market price

Half Udon (part of $13 lunch set), Salt-grilled Squid ($11)

California Maki (part of $13 lunch set)

d' Good Cafe - Singapore Coffee Musuem @ Jewel

Hainanese Chicken Roulade & Risotto Balls (19.50++)

Ling Cod Fish & Chips ($22++)

Cappuccino ($5.50++)

I was preoccupied with online games; yet blessed with R who sought out new places for us to visit. The Jewel is his plan for our date today. And the newly opened d' Good Café is having a 1-for-1 lunch promotion.

You tasted sincerity in their food here, it was as good as the price you would pay, even in full. The juicy chicken roulade is accompanied by a luxurious foie gras. The Ling cod fish was firm and sweet. Yes, we enjoyed our steak.

Of course you would end your meal here with a cup of their home roasted bean coffee. It is the boss's passion. Alas, we were too full for their signature cake - the little Nyonya.

Grilled Beef (Choice of Ribeye/ Tenderloin, $30++ each)

Sanook Kitchen @ West Mall

Deep-fried Sea Bass with Thai Chili Sauce ($24.90++)
Clear Tom Yum Soup, Seafood ($5.90++)

Having good experience with their fresh seafood, we returned to try their other dishes. It was our first with Thai prawn fish cake; our usual being the fish cake - the cheaper and more common one. Recommend you try the prawn fish cake too, at least once. It's worth it.

After today, we returned a few times. And our usual would be the pineapple rice, clear tom yum soup (one of the best we came across), and prawn cake. The sea bass you see here is a disappointing one time order.

Pineapple Rice ($5.90++)

Homemade Prawn Cake ($11.90++, 4 pcs)
