Happy eating with maximum $5 at Zaiman Corner

Yippie, its Friday again!!!! Today I am back with “Happy eating with maximum $5” article. So sorry for MIS for the past few weeks.  

If you looking for Halal foods around China Town area, I believed this article will be useful for you.  I found Zaiman Corner food stall while exploring a new place with my colleague for lunch. 

At first, I never realise about Zaiman Corner whereabouts. After looked around for all the food stalls in that hawker centre, I am curious about Zaiman Corner because this stall have the longest queue compare with other stalls. So without hesitation, I decided to ordered my lunch at Zaiman Corner.

They sell many types of malay dishes such as Lontong, Nasi Lemak, Mee Siam, Mee Rebus, Mee Soto, Soto Ayam and Tahu Goreng. They also have mixed rice. The mixed rice price is vary depend on how many meat and vegetables that you choose.

Other than normal menu that I mentioned earlier, they also provide special menu that not same everyday:
- Monday and Wednesday: Nasi Ambeng
- Tuesday and Thursday: Nasi Ayam Penyet
- Friday: Nasi Briyani

That time, I tried Nasi Ambeng. FYI, Nasi Ambeng is a dish that consists of white rice prepared with chicken cooked in spicy tomato sauce, achar, shredded coconut mixed with beansprout, potato with longbean, fried coconut flesh, perkedel and cooked chili sauce

The portion is big and it's very delicious. I am quite amaze with the taste. It's beyond my expectation.

Will I go there again? Yes.

Jakarta Street Food Festival (14 - 30 November 2014)

From November 14-30, 2014, La Piazza has Jakarta Street Food Festival. This festival is a good place for you to enjoy your day by eating delicious foods after tired working. 

You may expect many delicious local foods and international foods in this festival. I found some foods that was also sold in Singapore like Hot Star Large Fried Chicken, Egglet, TaiyakiNasi Lemak, Prata and Ice Cream Wafer.

In that time, we only tried two dishes: Bubur Kuning with Chicken and Perkedel at Bubur Kuning Plus2 and Bakso at Bakso Radja.

Bubur Kuning (Yellow Porridge) is made from porridge mixed with turmeric. Turmeric produces yellow color. They add chicken, Cakwe (Youtiao) and Perkedel into this yellow porridge. It's delicious. The only comment with this porridge is having small portion.

Bubur Kuning Plus2

Bakso Radja that we ordered was contained of four pieces of bakso (beef ball), one piece of egg beef ball and one piece of tofu. It was yummy and the soup was also delicious.

Bakso Radja
The interesting part in this festival is that they are using fake paper money like Monopoly money. In order to get this fake paper money, you need to exchange with real money at money counter.

Be sure to visit this festival if you have time before it's end.

Ratu Kepiting offers many types of seafood dishes, but I suggest you to try their crab dishes.

We ordered Kepiting Saus Padang (Crab with Padang sauce), Soup Asparagus and two plates of rice.

The crab dishes price depends on the crab's weight.

Kepiting Saus Padang was tasty and a bit spicy. This crab meat was fresh, sweet, thick and got many crab's egg.

Soup asparagus was also not bad. It's contained asparagus, fish ball, shrimp and egg.

The dishes portion were big. Each dish could served 2 people.

Although Ratu Kepiting was a tent food stall and located in the outdoor area without A/C, we were enjoying eating at this place.

Nowadays, it's quite difficult to find this seller. The reason is because not many people buying Es Cincau anymore and it's quite troublesome to make this cincau.

Es Cincau contains of Cincau (a.k.a. Green Grass Jelly), sweet brown sugar syrup, coconut milk and comes with ice.


Coconut Milk

Sweet Brown Sugar Syrup
Research said that Cincau is good for health. I prefer this Cincau (Green Grass Jelly) than Black Grass Jelly.

Es Cincau is considered as Indonesian street beverages.

Happy eating with maximum $5 at Nur` Ilham June and Family Nasi Padang

Hi all,  I know that many of you have been waiting for my “S$5.00 – Happy eating” post, but so sorry, these days I was quite busy with my stupid current project (Duh, please don’t remind me about that)  Anyway, here is the post that you have been waiting for =P 
Nur` Ilham June & Family Nasi Padang
I still remember, on that day, the hawker centre near our office was closed. So, there was no other choice, we need to find other place to have our lunch. Luckily we found out Nur` Ilham June & Family Nasi Padang
For me, founding them is like founding a hidden gem, it’s simple because it’s location.  It's located inside Manhattan House. I’m quite sure that not many of you heard about this place before.  There is no MRT near there (Alamak, I know). 
Ok, let's back to the review. Nur` Ilham June & Family Nasi Padang offers many varieties of Malay foods that you can choose to add on with the rice. Every day they will have different special menu for you to try. On the day I was there, they had Nasi Briyani as a special menu.

Without think twice, I ordered Nasi Briyani.

Their Nasi Briyani comes with chicken, acar (pickle), papadam and curry gravy. FYI Papadam is a crispy Indian crackers.

I like this Nasi Briyani so much. The chicken is tender and big enough. The acar is also very delicious.

Will I go there again? Yes.
Nasi Briyani S$5.00

Bar Bar Black Sheep

First of all, I want to say sorry to all of you that I have had a long absent from blogging. It's because I am quite busy with other things. But it doesn't stop me to find nice place to eat. It's just that I don't have time to write blog. Hope you understand :)

For the first post after my long absent, I want to show you a nice place to hang out around Robertson Quay. The name of this place is Bar Bar Black Sheep. I believed some of you heard about this place before.

I went to Bar Bar Black Sheep during lunch hour with my colleague. I ordered Blue Cheese Burger because I thought the cheese color is blue (sorry for my ignorance :p), so it would look cool in the picture.

But unfortunately, it was not like the way I expected. The blue cheese color was not blue.  It just has many small blue dot inside the cheese. Never mind, the combination between meat and blue cheese taste were not bad. The meat was also tender.   

FYI, blue cheese is a general classification of cow's milk, sheep's milk, or goat's milk cheeses that have had cultures of the mold Penicillin added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue, blue-gray or blue-green mold, and carries a distinct smell, either from that or various specially cultivated bacteria (from Wikipedia).

Will I go there again? maybe Yes.

Happy eating with maximum $5 at Wei Sam (Charcoal) Hong Kong Style Roasted

Did you remember I wrote about delicious prawn noodle in Mohamed Sultan area last week? Actually, nice foods around Mohamed Sultan area is not only that one. It's still have other stalls that sells delicious food to satisfy our taste bud. 

The other stalls that I will review today is Wei Sam (Charcoal) Hong Kong Style Roasted stall. This stall is located just beside prawn noodle stall.

Wei Sam (Charcoal) Hong Kong Style Roasted is selling Roasted Chicken, Soya Sauce Chicken, Roasted Duck and Roasted Cha Siew. Those dishes come with either rice, noodle or kway teow.

A little story of mine, this stall is located nearby my office, so I frequently take away my lunch from this stall and eat at office.  I ever try their chicken rice, cha sew rice and chicken kway teow. All the dishes are tasty. 

For the sake of this article, I wake up earlier than usual only to have breakfast before going to work. It's because this place doesn't have a big space and always crowded during lunch time.  It's difficult to find a seat to sit and put my camera bag. 

This time, I order roasted chicken rice. The rice is fragrant and tasty. The chicken is tender enough. This delicious chicken rice price is S$3.30. Quite affordable, right?

Will I go there again? Yes.

Pondok Arela Indah

Today I will show you about a nice place that only open during night time and serves tasty food with affordable price in Jakarta named Pondok Arela Indah.

You will not get a comfort and cozy environment in this place. Otherwise, you will not found aircon and if you lucky, you will get bite from mosquito :p But don't worry, once you try the foods, you will be falling in love and don't care anymore about the environment. You will come again for the second times. Even this place offers more delicious foods than some restaurants in big mall.

Over there, we tried Nasi Uduk with Pecel Lele and Ayam Goreng.

Nasi Uduk is made from rice soaked in coconut milk, with clove, cassia bark and lemongrass (to make it fragrant). Although it's sound like Singapore's nasi lemak, but this Nasi Uduk is more delicious than nasi lemak.

Pecel Lele is a fried catfish that served with sambal pecel and vegetables. Ayam Goreng (fried chicken) in this place also served with sambal pecel and vegetables.

Both Pecel Lele and Ayam Goreng are crunchy are delicious. Sambal Pecel makes the taste perfect.

Other than nice Pecel Lele and Ayam Goreng, I also found a special food that you will don't want to miss it. It is fried Cabbage. They fried the big cabbage using oil. It's really delicious.

Will I go there again? Yes.
