Seafood Super Bowl @ Sanook Kitchen West Mall

When you see something like this, don't you'll feel like ordering it? There were only the 2 of us, but we were confident we could finish the ingredients - the seafood.

And we did! Leaving behind huge chuck of the instant noodles, we devoured these fresh succulent seafood! Disappointingly was the salty soup base; not something we could drink up. Thus requested for glasses of hot water to water it down.

Still, the seafood with fresh meat balls was memorable.
This hot stove was great for the wet weather.

Tamako Meal @ Casuarina Rd

Unagi ($16.80), Chawanmushi ($4)

It must have been more than a decade since we last visited Tamako Meal. The little homely restaurant has now expanded to cover 3 shop fronts. But there was no lunch hour crowd? Can food still be good?

They are.

Be it the quality of ingredients, food presentation and execution. If you compare them to popular Ichiban Boshi; Tamako matches up. There was even free flow of ingredients filled miso soup. With a strong hint of home-cooked that chain group of restaurant can never offer.

Assorted Sashimi - Tuna and Salmon (Medium, 11pcs, $18.80)

Chicken Katsu Don ($9.80)

Teriyaki Set with Garlic Fried Rice

建安, Jian An Cooked Food - A Fisherman Table

Steamed Red Grouper, Teochew Style ($26/ seasonal price)

Steamed Red Grouper, HK Style ($23/ seasonal price)

We found a gem for seafood at the new Marsiling Mall Hawker Centre. And has been returning weekly for these.

Favourite being their fresh Teochew steamed fish and plump crayfishes. The steam fish was almost impeccable; well-timed steaming that preserve the tenderness of sweet meat. And its tasty sauces great with rice, was not overly salted.

Every other dishes are well-executed.
An affordable kitchen to entrust a good meal with your family.

Mama Thai, 泰国小厨

Thai Style Fried Fish with Thai Sauce ($23)

At Woodlands 888 Plaza, next to the 7-Eleven store, there's a newly opened Thai Kitchen offering economic lunch set (range of fried rice/ noodle set from $4-5) and zhi char. We went for both. But would honestly recommend only their zhi char. The lunch set just contain too little ingredients in them.

The fried fish and Lala shell is the must order. While we really should return to give their Pineapple fried rice ($4) and Phai Thai ($4) a try!

Thai Style LaLa ($8)
Green Curry Chicken (Set with rice/noodle, $5)

Thai Style Sambal Petai ($8)

Tom Yam Soup (Set with rice/noodle $5)

Paradise Dynasty, 乐天皇朝

Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken ($14.80++), Pan-fried Shanghai Pork Bun ($4.50++)
La Mian served with Double-boiled Chicken Soup ($11.80++)

After an enjoyable lunch at Paradise Dynasty, we returned to find out more.

Given their 8 flavours Xiao long bao (8 pcs, $14.80++), the group still pretty much preferred the original (6 pcs, $7.80++).

The recommended crispy chicken is something you would wish to pack back for Dad to go with his beer. The double-boiled soup is clear yet so flavoursome, you would want to nourish your hubby with. Their pan-fried pork bun is delightfully devilish. Be coming back.
Steamed Bullfrog with Pickled Chilli ($19.80++), Lettuce Roll with Homemade Sesame Sauce ($8.80++)
