MOF @ My Izakaya, Singapore Marina Square - Dinner

Hubby and I traveled to Singapore on end Oct/beginning Nov to celebrate our 3rd year wedding anniversary cum my birthday. On my birthday, we had dinner at this restaurant MOF @ My Izakaya situated at Marina Square since we were staying at Pan Pacific Singapore.
 Once seated, the waiter brought us each a very thick Menu. Maybe is because we just woke up from our nap we really cannot digest everything on the menu. It is just way too much of items on the menu and we cant decide what to eat even after reading it for 15 minutes. @@ Finally i ordered a spicy miso ramen and Hubby ordered a rice set something like Korean bibimbap type. Also he ordered karaage and soft shell crab for sharing.

Overall, the experience at MOF wasnt great. Ramen tasted not bad, however there was too much noodles and not much ingredients. Hubby said his rice said was special, a bit of Korean Bibimbap style with sake. Karrage tasted like McDonald chicken nuggets and the soft shell crab was way too much oily!

The only thing i found it quite nice is the green tea. They put a candle underneath the tea pot so our tea is always hot!
Hubby rice set is come with a cup of coffee, so he ordered another green tea machiato for me. This is seriously good~~~ especially their green tea ice-cream! I wish we could have an empty tummy to come here for dessert!

Dao Vien, Northbridge - Lunch

I have been to this Vietnamese restaurant many many times. This first time I came was with DC while i was doing my Master degree here in Perth. He brought me here just simply because this restaurant is always empty, ie the NO waiting time; and there was a big FREE parking space behind the restaurant, we can easily park our car and eat :) And of course the food here is not too bad. 

Through out the years the HUGE parking space at the back has been converted into Wilson Parking, however still I continue visit this restaurant mainly because it's still always empty. Hubby and I love coming here especially on Sunday afternoon for lunch. After trying a few items of the menu, our conclusion is the dry stuff is much better than the soupy stuff :)

Hubby and I love Vietnamese coffee, so we normally will order 1, either hot or cold, for sharing. 

Hubby loves this dry noodles with pork. The meat is well marinated with punch of flavors.

And that day I was just craving for wanton noodles... to be honest, it is really good! Really yummy wanton with few slices of char-siew. The seasoning on the noodles is just nice.
Worth trying if you are not looking for good ambiance and environment here as this restaurant just does not have. However if you want to have authentic Vietnamese food and reasonable price, give it a try :)

fasta pasta, Morley - Dinner

Hubby and I went to fasta pasta on one weekday night. We picked this restaurant just because it is very near to our house and we are really hungry. It was pretty empty when we walked in so we thought the food might be just normal or not nice at all. However we decided to give it a try as we are just too hungry.

We have been greeted once we walked in which we felt really warm. The waitress said we could sit anywhere we like and soon after we were seated they brought us the menu. I like the picture on the menu.

 Some of the items on the menu. Hubby said the pricing is pretty reasonable.

The bread is complimentary. Just nice to fill our hunger.

We order 1 large pizza and a pasta as main for sharing. Cant really remember the actual name of our pasta and pizza but i have to said both are really delicious.

The pizza is freshly made. The dough is very soft and light with lots of air in it. And it is just so different eating this pizza and those Domino/Pizza Hut's pizza! Hubby said this is the difference between the freshly made pizza and those commercial made one. 

And the pasta is so good as well. Pasta is freshly made as well. Dont ask me how can i tell, i know it is so soft. And this pasta is come with both red and white sauce. Really tasty!

We couldn't finish the pizza so we get the waitress to pack it for us. When we opened it at home, we realised that it was nicely pack with a little instruction card in it. We could feel that the restaurant really care about their customers!

Overall, it was a nice experienced having meal in fasta pasta. We will definitely come back again.
