En


All you can eat :)


This week, I visited the same restaurant (different outlet) twice! I had no complaints though because each was a different experience!

E and I had a dinner catch-up and she took me to a lovely place called En. There was a great 50% off sashimi and sushi happy hours promotion (before 8pm) and we ordered a platter of sashimi, wafu beef, standard salad in Imaiyu dressing and wafu spaghetti. The food is great and I love the ambience of the place.

My second trip back to En was unexpected and unplanned. You see, B.T is quite the foodie just like me and in all honesty, he does know places in Singapore that I have yet to visit.

Once, when I was in Hong Kong for work, he gave me a list of places to go to since he used to live in Hong Kong and knew quite a bit of good eateries. He kept recommending a all-you-can-eat shabu shabu place but the Nike peeps and I couldn't find it. Last night when a friend popped by, B.T said let's head out for shabu shabu and I just tagged along. Whilst in the car, he mentioned 'En' and I piped up and said, Oh I went there this week. It turned out to be the exact same restaurant but in a different location! How funny! And the best part is that hehe, this was the restaurant in Hong Kong that he loved.

The all-you-can-eat Shabu Shabu and a la carte is GREAT value. For S$48++ (averages S$60 per person after taxes), you get an unlimited supply of beef, vegetables AND a la carte food. Check out the menu options in the pictures below. But OMG, I literally ordered whatever E and I had earlier on the week because it was so good :P

If you are feeling famished and want a nice variety of sushi, sashimi and shabu shabu, check out En. However, service at the Bukit Timah branch isn't the best especially if you are sitting outside. Just an example, you would typically need to ask thrice for your green tea to be refilled and food is served slowly. Nonetheless, for the price value, heck!

Soy good


Meet my good pals - Almond soya with pearl, carrot soya and black sesame glutinous dumplings in beancurd and soya milk


Eating a big pau..


That is almost as big as my face! It costs just S$1.50 by the way :P


Okay. I am sorry. That I have been posting about food non-stop. :P But, well, I was having a sneezing fit yesterday from the dust - job hazard of unpacking hundreds of samples. And so I need something to distract myself from my rather red and sore nose!

Anyway, I might not be the biggest fan of milk (except milk chocolates) since I'm slightly lactose intolerant, but i love love love love love soya. Thank goodness it is a good substitute for milk and is high in calcium and protein. I probably have mentioned this gadzillion times, but I LOVE Mr Bean!

Carrot soya sounds gross but I've recommended it to my colleagues and they love it now :) I draw the line at celery soya though.. This time around, I reluctantly gave the ice cream a skip because I really wanted to try out the new black sesame balls which are yummy! They typically sell the peanut filled ones which I'm just alright about but black sesame is yummylicious.

Oh. And there is this huge pau that B.T and I are currently crazy about. It is stuffed with minced pork and onions and it's juicy and filling!

P.S I promise that the next post won't be about food. *burp.
