Cafe Brio - Dracoholic's Disappointing Experience

Another pathetic dining experience I had today when I went over to Cafe Brio at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront for lunch. I just happened to go there since I was at a new innovative product launch that supposedly saves you money when you utilize the services and products for roaming.

Although the Caesar salad was scrumptious, it had both salmon and grilled chicken breast. I was highly disappointed with the Oxtail Fettucini Pasta, that Pasta was the most depressing thing that happened to me today, as when I received it, I ended up getting a Vegetarian Pasta instead... and it so happened the initial waitress that was serving us disappeared so we called for another.

Dracoholic: "Excuse me, I think this is the wrong order. I ordered the Oxtail Fettucini Pasta but I can't seem to find the oxtail."

Waitress: "Oh let me check your order." Disappears for awhile and comes back. Waitress: "Yes, you ordered the Oxtail Fettucini without the Oxtail so the kitchen specially made this for you."

Dracoholic: "Eh, no I never ordered the Oxtail Fettucini without the Oxtail."

Fiona: "She never said she didn't want the Oxtail."

Waitress: "Ok I take it back and change your order."

Like oh my goodness ... not even a sorry??? Use your brain dude, why would I order Oxtail Fettucini without Oxtail, it's like ordering Hamburger without the Burger. I mean you think about it, if I did order the Oxtail Fettucini without the Oxtail, wouldn't I be saying that I want the Oxtail sauce, or wouldn't I have just ordered the Vegetarian Pasta that was right below the Oxtail Fettucini on the menu. I guess in the service line, if someone were to really order the Oxtail Fettucini w/o the Oxtail, I would've just asked wouldn't you prefer the Vegetarian Pasta with Fettucini instead, or maybe I would have asked, oh so do you mean you would like us to use the Oxtail sauce and shread the meat for you into the pasta instead of dealing with the unsightly bones???

Harlow out there ... use your brain ... dun blame me for your mistake ...

Finally 15 - 20 minutes later when Fiona had finished her "recommended dish" of Black Pepper Beef on a Sizziling Plate, the Oxtail Fettucini finally came. By the way, be wary of "recommended dishes" as there's a few places we've tried and they are just miserable. I need not say more about the dish that Fiona had because it wasn't all that!

Ok, so we ask for the bill, and suddenly our original waitress comes out from nowhere and hands us the bill.

Dracoholic: "Are there any special tie ups with banks or promotions going on?"
Original Waitress: "Uhm, I don't know."

Long pause between us and she stares at me.

Dracoholic: (losing my patience) "Well shouldn't you go check?"

Original Waitress: "Oh ok, lemme check."

She goes off to check, and returns with the bill another 10 minutes later.

Original Waitress: "UOB has 18%."

Dracoholic: "Oh is that the only bank card that has a discount?"

Original Waitress: "Uhmm and yah Citibank 15%."

Fiona takes out her UOB card to pay. The other waitress all of a sudden shows up to try to take the bill to charge it ... then we tell her we will follow her because we are in a rush. She disappears really quickly. We stand outside the front to wait for the bill for another 5 minutes when another server or host asks us if we need help. Then we tell them we're waiting for our bill ... another 5 minutes passes by, when he goes into the kitchen area to take the bill to go over to the bar area to charge it????? Geez are these people on duh pills or something?

Strange strange people that made us wait a decade to get food and the bill ... you'd expect the billing part to be fast. ARGHHHHH yes ... and basically I fell into an unknown depression after lunch and became super sian by the time I got home.

Pictures to come later when I get off my lazy ass... I just had to bitch about something.... I really cannot believe the difference in service level between Pontini and Cafe Brio which is in the same establishment.

So ... thus... I missed a freeflow, which I doubt Lynx or Rice King wanted to goto anyway because it was a type of grapefruit martini, they both aren't fans of grapefruit, plus because of my depressed mood, I don't think they wanted me to drink anyway in case I pick an argument with either them or some stranger. Hahaha ... Anyway Lynx, Rice King and myself decided to cook Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce since we've been pretty disappointed in the food we've been having outside lately, furthermore, wallet a bit tight.

Quick n Easy White Clam Sauce

4-8 tablespoons of bacon oil (if you don't have bacon oil, extra virgin oil will do)
1 1/2 cloves of crushed garlic
6 shallots
2 bay leaves
4 tablespoons of Italian Seasoning (Any brand is ok) but if you want to make it yourself, it's basically Parsley, Oregano, Tarragon, Bay Leaf, and Onions I think.
2 Tins of Clams in Clam Juice (separate clams from clam juice)
2-3 glasses of White Wine (use a nicer wine, don't use the cooking white wine because as Satellite once said, it doesn't taste nice)
3 tablespoons of butter

So you heat up your pot, put the bacon oil in let it warm up then throw the garlic in. Let the garlic brown, after which you throw the shallots and tear apart the bay leaves and throw bay leaf and italian seasoning into the pot. After the spices become fragrant, throw in the clams cook for a bit and continue to cook on low heat about 2 - 3 minutes .. then throw in the 3 cups of white wine and clam juice ... let simmer for another 5 - 10 minutes, then put in 3 tablespoons of butter and simmer for another 10 minutes. TA DA ... CLAM SAUCE READY!

More Binges

Over the weekend, we did what we always love to do. All weekend. Here's some of what we had.

Juicy Hotdog with the lot - Fat sausages with caramelised onions with balsamic vinegar, cheese, whole grain mustard, pickle relish, ketchup. It was so sour and delicious I could eat it everyday.

Pasta with roasted chicken and spinach leaves.

Potato Salad - new potatoes with pickled olives stuffed with sundried tomaotes, in a mustard mayo dressing.

Draco's first attempt Hokkien prawn mee.

Salty Chicken wings.

Har Cheong Gai - Deep fried prawn paste chicken. IceColdBeer's chicken wings are good, but these were better.

We did the kiwi barcadi cocktail again. But this time with a twist - strawberry sorbet on top, which made it doubly delicious.

We also had a resplendent sashimi (salmon, tai, tuna belly, giant cockle, swordfish etc) and sushi platter with which we drank sake. Unfortunately, in our greedy haste to devour, we totally forgot to take a picture.

After great food and and lots of drinks, we like dancing to celebrate.

Lazy Ikan Bilis

Well well, yes I forgot to take photos of the ikan bilis, but took a photo of the jar of chilli sauce as this one is tried and tested to be the best to make this dish. This is a super simple lazy recipe.

1 plate full of ikan bilis rinsed
Put ikan bilis on a plate with a paper towel underneath the ikan bilis
Stick in microwave for 2 minutes
Take the paper towel out from under the ikan bilis
Put ikan bilis back in microwave for another 2 minutes
After that put Fried Prawn Chilli Sauce in it and mix

Tuesday @ En

I got conned into writing this by the way ... but of course as usual they were all good reasons why I should start writing about En.

Well En is usually our impromptu type of place especially around 10plus but this Tuesday we all went much earlier. The place was packed .. but of course we had our wonderful server, Noriko and cute bartender Vincent!

We bought sake coupons, which cost about $138, allowing you to get 10 coupons that you can use, I don't think there's an expiry date on them.

We had Hakkaisan, Kouro, Ginjo Hakkaizan, and Momokawa sakes.

For starters we had Beef Carpacio, Goya Ohitashi (Bitter Gourd in some type of sauce) and Takowasabi:

Ok all I got to say for myself is that the bitter gourd wasn't bad at all. Thank you for forcing me to eat it! Bitter gourd is not my favorite dish at all.

Then the meal went on to consist of Tsukune (chicken and mushroom balls skewered), Kawebi (river shrimp), Sukugarasau Toufu (cold tofu with anchovy) and Eihire (Dried sting ray fins that are toasted). Sorry don't have pics of some of these items.

Of course the most spoilt dearest lil thing got her set of edamame beans for the night. She gets that when we go eat Jap food all the time if she's along with us.

Cost of entire dinner, plus a couple asahi beers = $241.40

Oh my goodness, look the cat became human!!!

monday's dinner

monday late night's dinner - draco's maccaroni & cheese and my chopped mixed salad.

"Ma La" Steamboat

right. we had our first attempt at "ma la" steamboat over the weekends and it was a success! well actually, it was drey's first attempt at making it. in fact the soup stock tasted pretty authentic if you ask me.
as always, we had a huge feast, this time consisting of various seafood like fish, crabs, pacific clams, razor-backed clams, and some huge mussels (which we have no idea wot they're called) that were tough as leather, all the usual vegetables and balls, beef, pork, chicken, tofu, tao poks and whatnots. the soup had the right degree of spiciness, and i must say it really packed a wallop. we'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

and then we had our usual chill-out drinking session. we made kiwi daiquiris - ice, kiwi puree, barcardi and sugar blended together. yummy.

Far East Plaza

There's a great deal of food joints at Far East Plaza; myself, Lynx and the Rice King decided to head down that way for breakfast ... we were surprised cause lots of places aren't really open yet. We saw many of the stalls preparing for a later opening time. We ended up going to this place by the escalator. The food was pretty decent or we all were very hungry cause we cleared our plates of all the food. We had bee hoon and kway tew with the usual eggs, luncheon meat, sausage, fish cake and stuff... not bad and pretty cheap I guess, 3 of us with drinks spent $11; oh yah don't go for the teh ... not sweet at all. No pics cause we ate half way and tried to take pics but it looked very ugly.

I overheard the aunties at the stall talking, I think they make pork feet ginger vinegar thing there too. Most of the other foods range about $3 a plate, portion is decent.

And be warned, even in the morning time, you walk out smelling like far east!

Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Outing

Our typical Sunday outing ... we went to dim sum at Imperial Treasure Nan Bei. As usual it's very busy there and you only get about 1 1/2 hours to eat. We had a load of food, typical hargow, cheong fun, siew mai, vinegar ginger chicken, soup of the day, seafood san mee, chicken feet, pork ribs, beef balls, siao long bao, prawn spring roll, raddish cake and other stuff that I can't remember at this moment but I am sure if I did miss out on anything Satellite or Lynx will helpfully fill this out.

Think most of us enjoyed ourselves, but as usual we came back so full that we decided to put our trip to the supermarket on hold till later on in the afternoon. Yes we are feasting again on steamboat tonight! Yay! Probably Sake Steamboat, but who knows, we may get adventurous and try a new type of soup base we create ourselves.

The address is: 391 Orchard Road, #05-12 Ngee Ann City, Singapore. Phone number: 6738 1238

Another good restaurant they have is the Tew Chew restaurant on the 4th floor of Ngee Ann City. The cold crabs are pretty nice and the Tew Chew Sharks Fin ... wonderfully delicious. There sets are pretty reasonable.

Dinner Party Adventures

16th September, had a couple parties to attend. One was my malay foster families place, where we had delicious home cooked food, the food was cooked for an army. They had cooked some of my favorite foods, one dish was the laksa lemak with a spin, basically it had assam in it. I got to the house and I was put to work immediately to cut laksa leaves for the garnishings. Lucky I arrived late, if not, hahaha I would have had to work more for my meal. Oh also there was my favorite chicken curry!!! Yum look at these pics.

Other dishes included, rendang, samosa's, mini curry puffs, sambal salad, noodles, and roti. Adding to that there was a never ending supply of home made sambale belachan ... yum yum yum. Check the spread out!

Pleasuarable and insatiable, I heard Mommy stayed up for 2 nights cooking up a storm for the birthday party. There of course were lots of deserts, including bo bo cha cha and of course lovely yummy awfully chocolate cake each for the birthday boy and girl. Check out this spread man!

Next stop was a house warming that I went to at Telok Kurau, nothing fantastic, but it was catered by Liang Food Services, which I was told on 17 Sept, is supposedly pretty good, however I felt that the food was lacking. Perhaps it was the choice of food. There was pasta, and some chinese dishes, don't think I saw the rice. I found the sauces for everything a bit too sweet, and perhaps the food wasn't as good, because I got there late. One thing I disagree with is keeping pasta on a burner plate as the pasta will start to dry up. Here's some pics, but honestly I wouldn't recommend catering from these people, also please avoid CDCS/CDIS (dun really remember) caterers, they're really not good at all, although they are big and owned by a mnc, but the food is usually very lacking, you can try some of there food out at Lavendar, Immigration Authority of Singapore.

Food Pics & Reviews

Thursday night Lynx and I were down at Peranakan Place... we had the Pork Relish as usual, it's like ba chor then you eat it with cucumbers, pineapples, and fried wanton skins. Nice kind of spin on chips and dips for a bar. Sorry the pics a bit over exposed.

Ok so we all agreed we would goto Sheng Siong to go check out some stuff that we needed for the house. So we decided to meet at Sunshine Plaza, of course we need a good meal before excersize and shopping. We landed ourselves at Victor's Kitchen, my normal haunt for decent dimsum, unfortunately, their selection is very limited. Victor's selection cannot beat the selection of 126 (Wun Dao Sic) in Geylang, a road side dimsum place. Oh and by the way, we did make a couple detours walking over to Sheng Siong from Sunshine, we first stopped at Poon Huat Confectionary, where you can find lots of baking goods, as well as spices, and especially puree's that you can make wonderful drinks out of ... yah I don't really bake so it's not my priority to find things to bake with. We also found a pretty newly opened Korean Supermarket located at Burlington Square I think, it's either Burlington Square or The Bencoolen (not sure how to spell).

Here's some pics for ya, and of course our popular commentator Lynx will eventually be giving a review on the place. Think our bill for 3 ended up being priced at about $24. Can't wait, we're going to be having steamboat tomorrow.

So they met me at Sunshine to go for dim sum lunch but prior to that i had an early exam of business law to sit and by the time i was done i was famished. Any more exercise (walking ie not in my head but physically) would have just increased the hunger enzymes. So do bear in mind that this review is based on a hungry hungry person ( er..not hippo ok)

The dim sum place is located deep in the belly of Sunshine pass the popular Parklane wonton noodles and a few other eateries. Victor's Kitchen (the main shoppe as opposed to their mini chain aka extra sitting area ala China style) is a tiny shoppe front which is the kitchen itself, where all the high rises of bamboo dim sum baskets, large and small, have whispery steam rising from their roofs. Three chinese men are busy making fresh har kaos, manipulating the "labrynth" of bamboo steamers and refilling sweet chilli sauce.

Okay enough about the shoppe, now for the food. We had 2 orders of Har Kaus (shrimp dumplings), Pork Ribs, Fried Wontons, Shrimp Cheong Fun ( rice flour strips stuffed with shrimp), Steamed Carrot Cake, Siew Mai (meat dumplings of sorts) and Char Siew Pau (roast pork bun).

The Fried Wontons didn't look too appetizing as it wasn't fried till golden brown and it was the large type wontons with plenty of crispy skin, what a waste. But to my surprise, the wonton skin was very crispy despite being fried just slightly and OMG the shrimp was fresh and luscious. Very good.

The Har Kows were just mediocre except that the filling of shrimp was very fresh and they use whole shrimps.

The Pork Ribs were just nasty coz they were sour to begin with and almost tastless, no solty soy beans or chilli, nothing. *pui* Very bad.

The Shrimp Cheong Fun once again had fresh, luscious shrimp but the cheong fun was erm.....well the texture was different from what i was used to not the silky melt in your mouth type but more like pig's skin very thinly sliced. Not that it wasn't good it was just different. The sauce was just right, light yet tasty and not too sweet. Overall not a bad dish at all.

The Steamed Carrot Cake was refreshing in that not many places serve carrot cake steamed, they're usually pan-fried. The sauce again was pretty decent like the cheong fun one. The carrot cake was well, light but still solid enough to pick up and you could taste the strands of carrot in it as well. Very nice combination of texture.

The Siew Main was nothing special at all. Although, i must mention that the official name of the dish is "Queen Size Siew Mai" i wonder what queen size meant because the siew mais were really small. Perhaps the normal ones we are used to are king sized and these are supposed to be bite sized so its queen size ....hmm...... i always thought that when you empasized the size of something in a dish it would be because it was laqrger than usual.

Last but not least, the Char Siew Pau was fluffy but not neccessarily light in that the fluffy-ness made it more platable that your normal paus but if you had like one whole pau you would be quite full, hence not light at all. The char siew was savoury and not too sweet with plenty of gravy unlike the normal paus outside.

In conclusion, Victor's Kitchen makes are very nice lunch place with decent dim sum and an ok price but nothing comparable to what we are going to eat for Sunday brunch.

Penne With Tuna In Creamy Black Pepper Sauce

i made this for dinner last nite. it's really easy and convenient. even though i used tuna out of a can and ready-to-use black pepper sauce that comes in a jar or bottle, it still taste delicious. below is the recipe. i'm not very sure about the exact quantity or amount of the ingredients i used becos basically i juz used my instinct and common sense. you go figure.

penne with tuna in creamy black pepper sauce (2-3 servings)


cooked penne
2 chopped small red onions
2 cloves minced garlic (more if you like)
1 knob of butter
abit of olive oil
1 can of tuna
a few lugs or tablepoonfuls of black pepper sauce (i recommend singlong brand, but lee kum kee is fine too)
one big spoonful of tomato paste
1 cup of water (or to your own estimation depending how thick or smooth u want the sauce to be.)
whipping cream or cream
diced tomatoes to garnish (optional)

saute onions and garlic in olive oil and butter till fragrant. add black pepper sauce and tomato paste. stir till blended. add water slowly and stir till you get a thinner consistency. add canned tuna. then blend in the cream. test taste and adjust accordingly. pour sauce over cooked penne and garnish with diced tomatoes and serve. bellisimo!

Sweet Chilli Mayo

juz tried this simple dip/spread recipe which i whipped up by instinct. it took only a minute.

Sweet Chili Mayo

mix together a few tablespoons of mayonnaise with abit of dijon mustard. stir in some sweet chilli sauce and a squeeze of lime. add salt and pepper to taste and stir till smooth. the colour should look like thousand island dressing. sprinkle some chopped chives or spring onions.

i made it juz now. it's great as a dip for chips and crudites and also sandwich spread.

Maharaja Delivery Service

13 September 2006 - Ordered from Maharaja Delivery Service

PANEER SAAG - spinach with cottage cheese
ALOO JEERA - Potatoes in cumin with fresh coriander leaves
BINDI NIANTARA - Lady's fingers in onions, tomatos and other spices

Found it a bit pricy but what more can you ask for if it is a delivery service ... was totally like lazy and we all agreed the menu looked really delicious especially when you're about to faint from starvation.

The vindaloo was spicy, the paneer saag, they didn't fry the cottage cheese and the spinach kind of was too mushed up, looked more like a spinach paste. The portions were pretty small also but all the sauces, rice and naan was pretty filling.

Will let Satellite and Lynx take care of the rest of this review.
LYNX'S Review:

Today we had the leftovers for lunch. Apparently, take-out curry, unlike home cooked curry, does not taste better over night. But in general maharaja makes decent curry.

What's refreshing was the Lady's Fingers, it wasn't mushy nor slimy and acts as a great antidote for burning overspiced tongues.

The Goa Fish Curry had fresh and plump fish slices in it and was mild but not boring. If you're expecting the tangy-ness from traditional fish head curry, well you'll only find a slight reminder of it in this northern dish which focused more on the basil.

The Butter Chicken Curry/Dish was very interesting in that it was buttery but you wouldn't know it was butter. Creamy yet not gelat, a very mild curry. Its not a spicy dish at all but certainly had a decent array of spices in it.

The fire-cracker of the lot was the Lamb Vindaloo. Like its name suggests, fire-breathing spicy-ness but not toungue-numbing so you could really still taste all the spices that went in. Lamb pieces were just tender enough.

The Tandoori Platter was a disappointment. Meats were not succulent enough although you could truly taste the char from the ovens.

The cottage cheese pinach dish aka Paneer Saag, was the weakest link. Tastless, spiceless, just tough cubes of cheese dumped into green muck.

The potato dish was a nice medley of spices, onions and carbs. This dish makes eating carbs almost sinless. The spices and onions neutralizes what would have been a rather gelat dish.

All in all the oily but flavourful naan went great with the curries and side dishes. Only thing was the price. Not that it was expensive but for this level of culinary expertise i would not be expecting this price.


lynx pretty much summed it all up about maharaja's. i would give thumbs up for their nosh EXCEPT for the spinach with cottage cheese which is very bland and BORING. it was left pretty much untouched by us all. and oh, their chicken tikka too was a bleah....

my favs are the butter chicken and the mutton vindaloo. the butter chicken, has a nice piquant taste unlike others i've tried before elsewhere. mutton vindaloo was tangy and intense.

the chicken tikka, which was marinated pieces of boneless chicken cooked in the tandoori was a disappointment. they were whitish dry chunks of chicken meat that had no distinct taste or colour and looked like they've been left out for too long. and i think they could be more generous with their mint yoghurt sauce since we ordered a tandoori platter.

the Goa fish curry could be spicier, but it was still fairly palatable. lady's fingers, no complaints. potatoes were good and the pillau rice was yummy and not too oily. the naan....well, it wasn't too bad. could be thinner and lighter though.

but wot the hell is the weird tasting chutney pickle like thingie they gave us on the side? i cant even begin to describe the taste. it was very salty and tasted bizarre and horrible. do they accompany this with their food like how we eat our sambal or belachan?---------*shivers*

New Coffee Shop - Prinsep Street

Went to a pretty new coffee shop type of place today and tried the chicken laksa, it's pretty worth it for $5 without the set.

On top of that, we had Hokkien Mee. Here's some badly taken photos.

Total bill came out to be $16.50, Hokkien Mee + 2 laksa set meals which come with a small glass of barley, and 2 wet towles. No I didn't finish the food ... just wanna order to taste taste!

Did I mention it's chicken laksa ... the chicken is pretty smooth. Oh the place is nice, it's a little shop house.
