Yokozuna – Casual Japanese Dining, Fraser Place.
This restaurant was my first restaurant I invited my friends to join me to try as part of my food hunting and blogging project. I bought the vouchers from the Internet in which this restaurant offered their set lunch/dinner at a reasonable price. It consisted of 1 main dish, a bowl of rice, a cup of chawanmushi, a bowl of miso soup and fruit. They also offered free flow of green tea. It was a complete bento set lunch.
There were three of us, so we ordered three different dishes to try out.
Salmon Teriyaki Set
It is always good to eat with teriyaki sauce when it comes to Japanese food. Although, the salmon was a bit small piece, the overall taste and quality of food was pretty good.
Another two dishes that we tried:
Black Pepper Beef Set
This black pepper beef was quite disappointed because the meat was not tender and juicy. It has a very strong of black pepper taste.
Teppanyaki Chicken set
Common Teppanyaki chicken which we can find it any normal Japanese restaurant. It is quite salty if eat without rice.
Perhaps we have to try other dishes if we visit again this restaurant in the future. The dining experience here was just so-so only. There was no crowd during our visit on Saturday’s afternoon for lunch. The quality and taste of food are average. The ambiance is super quiet.
Address: Fraser Place, Lot 163, Ground Floor, No. 10, Jln Perak, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
It has some new dishes and promotions being offered and I tried the Korean Instant Noodle again. This time they put the gzoya into the noodle and it called, Kimchi Mandu Noodle Set. It does not have big different between normal instant noodle and Kimchi Mandu.
As usual, it comes with side dishes and it is not refillable. This noodle does not have other meats except some mushrooms.

The Seafood International Market & Restaurant
On my sixth day (my last day) in Singapore before I flew back to Kuala Lumpur in the evening, me and my cousin, Jennifer Lam went to The Seafood International Market & Restaurant which is located at East Coast for lunch. She introduced me to this restaurant after her previous visit with her friends.
Without hesitation, we ordered all the ten one-time-order dishes. It consisted of:
braised mini abalone, braised shark’s fin soup with crab meat & wild mushroom, deep-fried Soon Hock with spring onion soya sauce, poached live prawn with Chinese wine, crisp-fried garlic soft shell crab, wok baked lobster with 10 spices black pepper sauce, wok fried rock lobster with basil chilli lime sauce, sautéed scallops with asparagus, wok fried mantis prawn with butter and crispy oats and Assam curry Garoupa fish
These are the ten dishes that we can order for once only.
Next, we ordered other dishes from the menu list. They offered most of the common dim sum such as steamed siew mai, har kao (prawn dumpling), char siew bao (barbecue chicken bun) and fried bean curd roll.
I recommend you to try the fried turkey breast with Arabica coffee sauce.The turkey breast was quite juicy and it has a strong taste too. It is pretty unique dish.
Besides that, you should also try the jellyfish with salad with Wasabi sesame dressing. This dish gave me a lot of “umphh” because of its Wasabi dressing. If you love the Wasabi taste, this dish is perfect taste.
This eat-all-you-can offer starts from 11.30AM to 2.30PM (last order at 2.00PM) daily. It comes with drinks and normal type of desserts.
Overall opinions about this restaurant are worthy to try for first time and definitely will come back again. The price is almost similar to some of the hotel buffet’s price range. The quality of the food maintained its taste although it was in smaller portion. The services are pretty good, all the waiters or waitresses are attentive to our orders and even recommend us to try their best dishes which turned out not our best taste (Haha!).

Kapitans by Kopitam
It is located at the top floor of the Tampines 1. There are plenty of stalls here but the seating is limited. During the lunch time, it is pretty crowded. Well, basically everywhere is also the same during the lunch time.
Fried Hokkien Mee
It was treated by my brother. (Thank you). I tried the fried hokkien mee before at other places. For me, it tasted normal, not salty and the portion was generous. There was quite a lot of people waiting at this stall mainly ordering the fried hokkien mee.
Yong Tau Foo
Simple yong tau foo with a bowl of rice. Pick your favourite yong tau foo and you can choose either to go with rice or noodle.

The Square, Furama RiverFront
On my fifth day in Singapore, I went to have buffet dinner with my cousin, Jennifer Lam, an international photography awards winner. It was my first buffet dinner in Singapore. We went to The Square at Furama RiverFront Hotel.
There was a wide range of food selection, from Chinese, Japanese to Western food. The salmon and prawns were fresh and they did offer oysters. You must be quick in action when you see they replenish the oysters at the raw food section. Besides that, there was 2 rows of desserts section. I was too busy eating and eating, I just managed to take some of the pictures of the food.
My buffet dinner completed with a cup of freshly brewed coffee with some desserts and ice-cream in the cone. 🙂 Overall dining experience here is pretty good and worth to give a try whenever they have promotion.
