Everything With Fries (Bugis Junction)

Cheese Burger with Garlic & Herbs (Straight Cut) $11.90

Everything With Fries (EWF) is started by the owners of Awfully Chocolate. It is a burger joint where the use of fresh ingredients is emphasis.

Recently, EWF has opened a new outlet at Bugis Junction. It is located at level 4, directly opposite Shaw Cinema next to the escalator. 

Open concept with modern decoration. 
Mains Menu
All mains are served with your choice of Fries and a Caesar Salad.
Fries Menu
5 different flavours of fries along with different cut;Shoestring Cut (skinny fries) or Straight Cut (thick fries) to choose from. 

I visited EWF with 3 others on 14Feb 2012. Yes, Valentines's Day. Well, it is a working day and we had to eat lunch. We arrived at around 1220pm and were informed by the staff who gave us the menu that they ran out of salad.

We placed our order and started noticing, more people entering. It was obvious that the staff and kitchen could not cope with the crowd.

After waiting for more than half an hour minutes, we requested for fries to be served first as we were starving. (by the way, the serving staff informed us that normally the food will be served within 15 minutes)
Cheese Burger with Garlic & Herbs (Straight Cut) $11.90
How long more did we wait, I do not know. My food was the first to be served. As for the rest, theirs were served between 5 to 20 minutes later).

We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the salad. As earlier we were told that they ran out of salad. If you noticed, in the picture, a whole garlic was given! Well..I ordered the Garlic & Herbs Fries (Straight Cut).
Cheese Burger
The Cheese Burger consists of beef patty, topped with cheddar and stewed tomato concasse. The beef patty was soft but too dry. On a positive note, it does not taste like frozen processed beef patty. (by the way
EWF claims that everything is made freshly) The cheddar and tomato concasse complemented the flavour of this burger well.

What is concasse? Concasse is the process of coarsely chopping a vegetable. For tomoato concasse, the tomato will need to be peeled, seeded before chopping.  After which you can season it with salt and pepper to taste and use for e.g. as a sauce or for omelette.

The food is ok. The only issue I have with EWF is their ridiculously slow service. Even when I made payment, I gave my credit card to the staff. The staff took it without checking, coming back 5 minutes later to tell me they do not accept that credit card and asked for a new one. This could have been prevented if they know what is accepted, what is not (American Express, Visa, Mastercard?..)

A few days after my visit, I happened to see someone posted a picture of EWF at Bugis on facebook, I enquired on their service and I got the same feedback. Benefit of doubt: maybe their kitchen staff and service staff are new considering they just opened. (but again, that only shows clearly the lack of training) They should rectify this problem fast as it will not do any good to their reputation.

Dear customers,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused, but due to overwhelming response, the 1FOR1 SIZZLING CURRY RICE promotion will officially end on 28 Feb 2012 (Tues), while stocks last at each outlet.

Nothing can express our gratitude enough for the support you've given us. We hear your excitement and all the plans you've made to visit us during these 3 days and we really hate to disappoint you. However, response has been exceedingly overwhelming and our curry sauce will not be adequate till Wednesday. It is with utmost regret that the promotion has to end prematurely.

We would like to express our sincere thank you to one and all who have shared the coupon and made/planned to make your way down to our outlets, and our deepest apologies especially to those who did not get to enjoy the offer. This has been an extremely valuable experience for us, and we promise to be back real soon with better deals.

Jack's Place (Ang Mo Kio)

I have been patronising Jack's Place for a long time. Jack's Place is started by a Chinese from Hainan who learnt how to cook by joining the British Army as a cookboy. Used to visit its first outlet at Sembawang, called Cola Restaurant. Today, it has evolved to include several concept restaurants such as Eatzi Gourmet, Seafood Harvest, Brewbaker's, Hoshigaoka and Jack's Place under the JP Pepperdine Group.

Jack's Place currently has 15 restaurants in Singapore and specialises in western cuisine such as steaks. Visited its outlet at Ang Mo Kio on a weekend lunch.
Signature white and green checkered table cloth.
Daily Set Lunch Menu
I always come to Jack's Place during lunch to savour the Set Lunch which is valid daily from 11am to 230pm.  My favourites are both from the Executive Set Lunch; N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce ($16) and N.Z. T-Bone Steak with Brown Sauce ($22.50). The Executive Set Lunch comes along with Garlic Bread, Soup of the Day, Day's Dessert and Coffee / Tea.

I ordered the N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce.
Appetisers Menu
We also ordered the Mushrooms with Slipper Lobster & Crab Meat ($9.50).
Garlic Bread
Broccoli & Leek Soup with Crab Meat
The Soup of the Day was Broccoli & Leek Soup with Crab Meat! Generous portion of crab meat given. Delicious!
Mushrooms with Slipper Lobster & Crab Meat $9.50
Presenting the Mushrooms with Slipper Lobster & Crab Meat. Each piece of button mushroom was stuffed with a blend of slipper lobster and crabmeat, topped with cheese before baking. It was baked perfectly with melted cheese on top and at the bottom adding to the flavour. I wish that they were more generous with the slipper lobster and crabmeat. Be careful not to scald yourself as the metal parts are hot! 
Executive Set Lunch: N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce $16
The steak arrives on a sizzling hotplate along side with carrots, green beans, onions and baked potato. The brown sauce on top complement the steak well. I love the brown sauce! Customers can request for more brown sauce if required. Anyone knows how I can make the brown sauce?

The baked potato deserves a mention too. It was well baked, not dry not powdery. Topped with Sour Cream Sauce, Bacon bits and Spring Onions, it was yummy!
Day's Dessert and Coffee & Tea
A satisfied meal at Jack's Place. That is why I have been patronising this chain of restaurant all these years. Steak at affordable prices. In addition, service was good.

The Manhattan Fish Market (Marina Square)

This month; February 2012, there seems to be many 'Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deals'. The Manhattan Fish Market is one of those offering a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deal called the OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal!
OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal (Source: Manhattan Fish Market Singapore)
The OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal allows customers to purchase a combination of any 2 dishes (Small Flame and/or Small Grill) for the price of just $19.90++. This deal is only valid till 8 March 2012.

Visited The Manhattan Fish Market outlet at Marina Square to try out this deal.
Large poster outside The Manhattan Fish Market promoting the OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal. Arrived at 530pm on a Saturday and saw a short queue. Luckily, there was plenty of space and we got a table straight away. I was surprised when the waiter gave us the main menu only, had to request for the OOHSOME TWOSOME menu. Guess it was an oversight as the place was packed.

The OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal allows customers to add Soup of the Day and Mocktail (Drink) for an addition fee (of course). We decided to order 1 Small Flame and 1 Small Grill and top up $9.90 for 2 Soup of the Day and 2 Mocktails.
Soup of the Day (Cream of Mushroom Soup)
The Soup of the Day was Cream of Mushroom Soup. It comes in a very small bowl (wish that more was given). Lots of fragrant mushrooms bits in the soup.
Mocktail (Cala Cala)
The Mocktail which I choose was the Cala Cala which is Sprite with Lime added inside. Very refreshing.
Small Flame
The Small Flame consist of the award winning Flaming Prawns, Battered  Fillet, Garlic Herb Rice, Crispy Chips (Fries), Broccoli and Carrots.

The Flaming Prawns was delicious, the melted cheese on top was thick and cheesy. In addition, the prawn was fresh, firm and not charred. Battered Fillet was yummy, except that I found it on the oily end. Crispy Chips which was fries. The Broccoli and Carrots are steamed, makes this dish looks bright, cheerful and appetising!
Small Grill
The Small Grill consist of grilled Fish Fillet, grilled Calamari, grilled prawns, Garlic Herb Rice, Crispy Chips (Fries), Broccoli and Carrots.

The grilled prawn was good, however I prefer the flaming prawn version. Again, prefer Batter Fillet to Grilled Fillet. The Grilled Calamari was average, I prefer their Fried Calamari which can be ordered in their A La Carte Menu.

Both Small Grill and Small Flame comes with Garlic Herb Rice. They are very generous with the portions especially the Garlic Herb Rice. We were unable to finish our respective orders. If I was to patronise Manhattan Fish Market again, I will order 2 Small Flame instead! This deal is certainty value for money! However, the service could be improved. Many a times, we found it hard to get the attention of the waiter / waitress. When we were leaving at around 630pm, we noticed that there was a long queue outside The Manhattan Fish Market! Luckily we went for an early dinner!

Hurry enjoy the OOHSOME TWOSOME Deal! It is valid till 8 March 2012. Wish that The Manhattan Fish Market and other restaurants can have more of such deals more often!

The Triple Three (Meritus Mandarin)

*image intensive post*

This post is almost 3 months overdue. Went to The Triple Three at Meritus Mandarin for it's International Buffet during December (Christmas Period). With Groupon voucher, it cost just $34 per person.

Just outside The Triple Three, we spotted this!
Made of real Ginger Bread!
Part of the restaurant. We came in at 1205pm, as it was still early, it was not very crowded. This place has a very large sitting capacity.
Customers can leave their table to get food being assured that the table is reserved.

Ok, now I shall let the food do the talking! Some images might be unclear.
Sashimi - Salmon & Salmon Belly
Sashimi - Salmon (top) & Salmon Belly (bottom)
Seafood - Prawns and Mussels
Seafood - Prawns and Mussels
Prawns were not fresh.
The duck was tough and hard.
Salad, Potato Salad
Crab Meat Soup
The Crab Meat Soup taste like Shark's Fin Soup. Starchy, crab meat, egg white. Taste good!
Black Pepper Crab Claws, Broccoli, Slow Oven Baked Pork Ribs in Coffee Sauce
The first batch of Black Pepper Crab Claws was delicious! Fresh, firm crab meat that can be easily pulled out of the shell. But after that, the next few batches the Crab Claws was not that fresh and the meat was stuck to the shell.
Cold Soba
Tempura (Sweet Potato, Cucumber, Sliver Fish)
Western & Teppanyaki
Indian (Naan, Prata, Mahi Tikka) 
Desserts - Fruits
Desserts - Ice Cream
Lots of variety of food as seen in the picture. You are basically spoilt for choice. There are also Dim Sum, Pasta sections. Despite the variety, I felt that the quality was lacking.
