Ayam Penyet President

Hi all, today I want to share with you one Indonesian restaurant called Ayam Penyet President. It's located at Serangoon NEX Shopping Mall.

I was quite surprise  to find an Indonesian restaurant at NEX. In my mind, Yeah finally, I no need to travel until Orchard just to have ayam penyet / ayam bakar.

Without hesitation, we decided to have dinner over there. We ordered Smashed Fried Chicken, Grilled Chicken and Beef ball soup.

Smashed Fried Chicken comes with tofu, bean cake (tempe), crispy bits and their signature chili paste.

Grilled Chicken comes with grilled tofu, bean cake and cut chili in black sauce.

After we tried, we were super disappointed with the taste. The Smashed Fried Chicken was not so nice.

Grilled Chicken was slightly better than the Smashed Fried Chicken, but don't eat the grilled chicken with the provided cut chili in black sauce. The black sauce taste was so weird.

Beef ball taste was okay. It's a bit similar like Indonesian style.

Will I go there again? No

 Smashed Fried Chicken (Ayam Penyet) S$6.50

Grilled Chicken (Ayam Bakar) S$6.50

Beefball Soup S$6.00

OTTO Locanda

OTTO Locanda is one decent restaurant which located near Red Dot Building.

Interested with their restaurant's decoration, we decided to had dinner at OTTO Locanda after went to art & craft bazaar at Red Dot Building.

As we didn't plan to visit this restaurant at the first place, we just wore a very casual outfit: t-shirt and jeans. Yeah, our outfit on that day was not that proper to dine over there. I realized it after we got some weird looks from the other customers. Hehehe. No problem for me, (frankly speaking) I don't give any damn of what they are thinking, since I'm the customer same as them (anyway, customer is a king, right??) :p

Ok, back to the business.

We ordered Carne Mista alla Brace Secondo Tradizione. This dish consists of assorted grilled meat with marinated grilled vegetables and field herbs. It's for serves 2 people. The meat are tasty and tender. The sausages also nice. They also marinated very well. Please note that they need to grilled it more than half an hour.
We also ordered Sorbetti e Gelati della Casa. It consists of homemade ice cream and Sorbet. This dessert is nice and refreshing.

Will I go there again? Maybe yes.

I love Taiyaki....Ups, actually I JUST love everything with Custard (Since Taiyaki gives quite a lot portion of custard fillings, I officially become their fans).

Short introduction about Taiyaki
Taiyaki is a Japanese fish shaped cake. It's similar like pancake. Normally, Taiyaki fillings is either red bean paste, custard, chocolate or cheese. I don't have any idea behind this fish shape, but if see from the name, 'tai' is the kanji name for ocean bream.

Nowadays, a lot of Taiyaki seller makes improvement on the fillings to attract more customers. They create their own innovation like banana & chocolate fillings, sausages and even durian fillings.

I tried Banana & Chocolate Taiyaki and Custard Taiyaki. Both are very nice.

Red Banana

Who like Banana? It's not the banana-potato-minion song, but the fruit, BANANA!!!!

Normally Banana' skin comes with Yellow or Green color. But, do you know that there is one species of banana which come with red color skin?

It's true, there is red banana in this world. I found the red one at supermarket below my place.

The difference between the yellow, green and the red color skin banana is only the skin color. Inside the skin is totally looks the same.

FYI! Red banana has more benefit for our body, compare with yellow and green banana . It contains more vitamin C.

Spathe Public House

Last week, I and colleague had lunch at Spathe Public House.

Actually we planned to order their set lunch promo. But finally (after realized that their lunch menu was not worth of the money), we decided to try their normal menu instead.

We ordered Spathe Chicken Klev Style and Chicken & the Sea.

Chicken & the Sea consists of Spanish paella rice, NZ mussels, squid, chorizo, chicken and saffron. The mussels & squid are fresh, chicken is tender and they serve in hot condition. This dishes is very delicious, but the portion is too small.

Spathe Chicken Klev Style comes with green peas and garlic. You need to eat the chicken together with the onion to get the perfect taste. My friends told me that the food is quite nice, but not pocket friendly :P

So if you looking for a cozy restaurant with nice dishes plus don't mind with their price, you should try have your lunch / dinner at Spathe Public House.
