Lovely dinner tonight with Hubby and my Mother-In-Law in Santouka Hokkaido Ramen in Glorietta.
Ordered the Santouka Sets as it was more Sulit than ordering the ala carte. Personally, I thought a set is good for 2 people. However, not knowing this, we ordered 1 set each. A set consist of Rice, Chawan Mushi, salad, pickled vegetables and small sized ramen. Even ordered an extra Pig Cheeks and Boiled Eggs to boot.
Warren turned 2 last Wednesday. Hubby and I decided to just celebrate it at home with a few friends and family. Saving up for another trip to Disneyland with the little one so no big fancy birthday celebration. Plus, we thought that if we’re celebrating when he’s 2, it would be very impractical. Nonetheless, I had to decorate the place a little.
Since Warren is into Minions now with the latest movie and phone app, I decided to make that his party theme. I passed by Dom’s Party Shop along Tomas Morato and found 3 perfect minions to put around our house. Also had a photo wall printed from our shop. Bought a few balloons and put them around the place.
The photo wall was such a huge hit with the kiddo. He kept on posing for the camera standing in front of the photo wall. Even dragged a chair to sit on and posed for the cameras again. Here are a few pictures of him.
Of course no party will be complete without food! So, worked my magic and produced these food. Ordered Royal Mango Salad (Php495) and Chicken Pastel (Php990) from Conti’s. Ordered Fresh Lumpia and Fish Florentine from QCSC. Crab Sotanghon and Shrimps were courtesy of my dad. Also had Chicken Rice from Stevie’s.
Lastly, had a Minion cake (Php900) and cupcakes (Php40 each) made. It was so last minute! Good thing my friend was able to get his sister to agree. It tastes as good as it looks! The non-minion cake was provided by my Guama and aunts.
Happy Birthday Kiddo! Mom and Dad love you! 🙂
Today’s lunch was included in our tour. Consisted of traditional and delicious Korean food. The side dishes were of unlimited refills. For our main dishes, it consisted of 2 fish variety and 1 pork dish. The pork dish was so good that we ordered another serving (KRN15,000). The order turned out to be 3 times the size of what we originally had. Finished the food nonetheless. So yummy!
I’ve tried Din Tai Fung in Taiwan, Shanghai and now in Singapore. Our wedding godparents treated us to a sumptuous fair of Dimsum and much more. The place had a long waiting line outside. They weren’t exaggerating when they said it would take at least an hour to get seated!
Din Tai Fung is an award winning restaurant which originated from Taiwan. They are famous for their Xiao Long Baos (small soupy dumplings). We were lucky to get to try more than just these. All were yummy. Enjoyed their fried chicken wings, pork rib soup and loved the date appetizers.
In front, you get to see how they do their famous dishes.
When in Singapore, do what the locals do – Eat, Eat and Eat. Where did my diet go? It went out the door the moment we stepped into the island of Singapore.
One of Singapore’s well-known dishes is its Chili Crab. And of course, we had to try what people have been considering to be the best Chili Crab in the island – No Signboard Seafood Restaurant. We took the MRT going to their main branch located in Geylang road. The ride cost is SGD1.80 each.
Was a bit surprised to find an outdoor setup. Since we didn’t have reservations, we were escorted to another side of the restaurant.
ON THE TABLE
Chili Crab: SGD50/kg
We were served a pretty big crab with lots of meat in it. The sauce was on the spicy and salty side. It was so-so for me. Actually, I preferred the one in Thailand, Somboon. Will try another restaurant known for their chili crab tomorrow.
No Signboard Beancurd: SGD20
Reminded me of the lomi sauce. Good combination of beancurd, mushrooms and vegetables.
Salted Egg Shrimps: SGD25
This was a nice dish. Loved the salted egg sauce.
All in all, the food we ordered was so-so. Hoping to try a better chili crab tomorrow. I personally prefer one that’s a bit on the sweet and spicy side.
We took a taxi going back to Orchard. The ride costed us SGD10.
