London eats in brief

I'm relaxing in the welsh countryside now breathing fresh air and enjoying the scenery which is a welcome change from London.

Dinner at The Green House in London - its a one Michelin star restaurant and serves modern European cuisine.

Had the winter tasting menu (£55++ per person for 6 dishes). I really liked the salmon with beetroot Our main was duck breast which was also very well done - tender pink and juicy.

Desserts - on top of the main dessert which had Guinness ice cream, there was mini portions of cheese cake, chocolate encased chestnut, lemon tart, some choc thing and hazelnut macaroon.

Hopefully i will have time to blog abt my lunch at Alain ducasse and dinner at hibiscus (which I really liked). - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Ramen champion in changi airport

There's a Ramen Champion branch in T3 changi airport. It's rather small with 4 stalls only (gantetsu, riki, hakata gensuke and ikkousha). I've tried only gantetsu before. This is the ikkousha hakata style ramen - though hakata ramen isn't my favorite... The best thing about this was the perfectly boiled tamago with the yolk still runny. The soup was tasty but not very remarkable and I didn't quite like the char Siew cos it was choped up jnto small little pieces. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Taro cake @ Coffee Stars by Dao

Happy chinese new year! I'm feeling like Scrooge cos I have to work every single day during cny. The only redeeming fact is tt most of the shops will be closed tmr. This is the taro cake from Coffe stars a new cafe in wisma. It tastes very much like chilled ohr nee and the cream is actually coconut cream. The cake layers have bits of taro mixed into the batter. I shall slowly figure out where nine west has shifted to after I'm done wth this cake... - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
