Rong Hua Teh Cino

Otherwise known as the tea version of cappuccino, teh cino is best described as milk with a layer of tea on top. I decided to try this drink out of curiosity a few months ago and fell in love with it since then.

Having tried the teh cino from several places, my favourite is the one from Rong Hua Hot And Cold Drinks located in the basement of Golden Mile Food Centre.

I usually order the hot teh cino which costs $1.20. What makes this teh cino outstanding is how the thick saccharine milk layer below blends so well with the distinctive fragrant tea layer above, creating a memorable bitter-sweet interface.

So do remember to try this special teh cino from Rong Hua the next time you dine at Golden Mile Food Centre.

Western Barbeque Mixed Grill

Having blogged about its chicken chop previously, I decided to try the mixed grill from Western Barbeque at Old Airport Road Food Centre today and it was simply extraordinary.

For only $7.50, the sumptuous mixed grill comes with an enormous piece of chicken chop, a juicy slab of pork chop and a tasty chunk of lamb chop. Enjoy this wholesome combo meal with French fries, a fried egg and a butter bun.

Other than the expensive meaty buffet dinner at Carnivore, I cannot think of any other meal that is as sinful as this mixed grill. If you are a meat lover like me, you must not miss Western Barbeque's mixed grill which will certainly leave you feeling very satisfied and wanting to return for more.

Lai Heng Fried Kway Teow

Surrounded by ERP gantries and expensive parking rates, Lau Pa Sat Festival Market is one of the last places that I would patronise for dinner. Until recently when I went there, did I realise the wonderful variety of foodstuff and their affordable prices, even though it is located in the heart of Shenton Way.

I ordered a plate of Lai Heng fried kway teow which costs only $3 ($2.70 if you pay by the Kopitiam card), cheaper than in most foodcourts. Expertly fried with a distinctive charred aroma, the flavorful kway teow is served in a semi-moist consistency and coated with sweet gravy. Topped with fresh cockles and slices of Taiwan sausage, Lai Heng fried kway teow comes in a reasonable portion that is certainly satisfactory for dinner.

Besides local foodfare, Lau Pa Sat also has a wide range of International cuisine eg Taiwanese, Korean, Italian etc. I would certainly come back here for dinner again soon.
