Awesome chinese food brunch buffet at JING

My sis brought us to JING on saturday noon for an awesome brunch buffet.
It's a chinese restaurant located near to the Butter Factory club.
(clubbers should know, you've probably walked pass it a million times while going to the restroom outside the club)




I've enlarged the menu hopefully you guys can read it.
All the food can be ordered again and again except for the chilli crab, famous soonhock fish, and the sharkfin rice, which can only be ordered once.


We started off with some dimsum since it's brunch.
They were so good but we wanted to save our tummies for better stuffs.

 
 Fried beancurd skin prawn fritters


 
 Dumplings soaked in sauce

Fried carrot cake

Fried dumplings aka gyoza

 
Very awesome hot and sour soup

Super comforting fish maw broth

 Drunken prawns

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE.
It's black pepper beef cubes.
I know it doesn't look super awesome or what but,
trust me; I was shock at how tender the beef cubes are.
It's covered with thick fragrant black pepper sauce and you probably can't see it,
the inside of the beef is pink!
It's so juicy I can have like, 10 servings of it.

 Chilli crab!

Soonhock fish.
It's actually a very famous hongkong fish and it's mostly eaten in wedding banquets.

 Shark fin with rice

Yummy chewy rice cake for dessert

They have other good food that we didn't order.
Things like peking duck, other beef and seafood dishes.

Guess how much this buffet cost?

Only $48++ per person!
Quite pricey, but look at all the good food that are included in the buffet.
It's very very worth it, I must say.
However, the brunch is only available on the weekends.
You can try the ala carte on weekdays too, I'm sure it's as good but maybe slightly more expensive.
Citibank users can enjoy a promotion now,
4 pax with 1 free.
My sis paid with her citibank card and the bill is only about 150 for 4 person.

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant

Went for my favourite Japanese buffet last week,
because I had mad craving for sashimi.
Ikoi never once failed me when satisfying my craving for sashimi; 
their sashimi's super fresh and its free flow.
It was D's first time at the restaurant and I can see he likes it as much as I do.


This is their buffet menu.
They have ala carte too, which seemed pretty awesome but I think it's more pricey.


Very interesting complimentary soup in a tea pot which came with a wedge of lime.
It tasted like fish broth and the lime simply enhanced the flavour.




They have very nice cooked food and sushi too.
But we placed all our attention on their sashimi.
They have types of sushi, meat skewers, fried foods, curry, all sorts of noodles and rice.




We had 3 massive plates of sashimi!
Sad that I'm having braces, their swordfish and squid sashimis are to die for.
Super fresh and juicy.
All that I mostly had are salmon because I no need to bite them much.


Contented faces.
LOL

When walking out, I stumbled upon a photo on their wall.


My dad was there too!
& to think that he didn't bring me there.
So sad 


Their price is 38++ for adult.
I think it's reasonable since they gave complimentary stuffs and free flow of sashimi.

It's a food food week


 Starting off this post with my selfies (as usual)


Met up with J and A for korean BBQ last night.
I was soooo hungover from friday night @ Zouk I nearly didn't make it to our dinner.
Brought them to my fav korean BBQ place : Superstar K!
I'm sure this restaurant need not much explanation since it's already quite popular,
but the food there's awesome.
They have awesome service too!
They actually cook the meats for you,
and they have free flow of water
(extremely rare especially when all restaurants charge for their water recently).



 Super love it that everyone has this plate set.
The chili is good, the onion is good, the seasoned salt too.


 My fav fluffy eggs!
There will be 2 free rounds of small dishes, as well as this!


Well marbled beef.
The soy chicken is delicious and well seasoned.
Didn't really enjoy the pork because it was too hard for my braces to handle.
Otherwise, pretty good too.

Went for chinese food on friday night with my family.
The food there's not bad,
but the main thing you go for would be the ambience.
While you're eating, there will be live performance,
mostly singing mandarin oldies.


 Crabmeat tofu which goes really well with a bowl of rice


 This is quite a failed dish.
Honey sauce pork slices.
The pork slices smelled really bad,
like pigs that didn't bathe for years.




 My all time fav! Salted egg yolk prawn!
No one can ever screw up salted egg yolk dishes, methinks.


 Peking duck with very nice prawn crackers.
They actually saved us the hassle by wrapping em for us.


 Crispy fried eel skin.
Quite nice for an appetizer.


"Saliva chicken" in mandarin.
The one they serve is slightly special, 
it comes with peanuts.
The sauce is good; spicy yet sour, savory yet sweet.

Went to party after dinner with the boys.
Zouk was super crowded but we managed to get a table at Phuture.
Lucky us.
As usual I wasn't drunk.
But I couldn't say the same for some of my friends.




Lets play "spot the drunkard"
Can't really tell from the pictures eh?




Anyway, it's sunday!
Time for some well deserved rest after a good good weekend.

Family's favourite brunch: M Hotel Cafe 2000


Check out my new pretty heels ;)

So... eventually I went out for girls night out on Saturday,
BUT I'm so proud of myself!
Despite constant peer pressure and nagging from my girls throughout the night,
I managed to go through the night without a single drop of alcohol down my throat.
I even took antibiotics in the club while J flashed the torchlight on me so I could see
(which was extremely embarrassing because everyone saw me popping meds in a club)


I left early, at 2ish when the girls were tipsy.
(my cue to leave because they would be HAVING FUN while I'll be STIFF & SOBER)



Nevertheless, I was glad that I went home early because momsy brought us all to our usual brunch
at M hotel the next day.
The brunch ($57++/person) comes with a big portion of main course of your choice,
and also access to the buffet table which includes soup, assortment of breads, cold seafood, laksa, appetizers, fried foods, sashimi, sushi, etc.
Frankly, it's too much for me to handle.
Everytime I'll go crazy deciding between the main course and buffet.
I tend to be full after the main course and has no more room space for the buffet,
but I can't stand passing up the cold crabs, laksa and sashimi,
so I'll overeat all the time :(


 I really love the prawns they serve. Very big, juicy and sweet.






My medium rare ribeye with ratatouille and baked potato with sour cream
Mom and sis' Atlantic cod with pan fried foie gras in miso sauce 

I know for 57++ it's quite pricey,
but I think it's pretty worth it since the main course is pretty big and there's buffet too.
The brunch is only available on weekends though.
I've tried their lunch/dinner buffet too, it's amazing but they don't have wide array of options.

A whole afternoon of shopping after a filling brunch is the best way to spend a Sunday.
& I bought lotsa stuff!
Happygirl91.
As usual I bought most of my casual wear from f21.
F21 always have clothes that fit me perfectly, it's annoying because I'll overspend whenever I'm just cruising around to kill time.

Momsy was bored at F21 hence me and sis promised to go places she likes.
We went to check out the new Robinson at Heeren.
I was kinda amazed by their shopping area;
it's wayyy more spacious and stylish than any other Robinsons.
The interior of the departmental store's very unique,
it feels like shopping in another country.
I love their fitting rooms the most because
they have the size of 7 normal fitting rooms combined,
with pretty chairs and mirrors inside each of it.
My mom and sis actually went in together with me to see me fit dresses,
and also to rest their feet heh!
Talk about more bonding time during shopping.

 Their clothing racks and displays make all the clothes look so classy and unaffordable,
but in actual fact, they aren't as pricey as they look;
I was fooled by the look of their display hmpf.
 Gotta check out their price tags!


 Now my feet are sore from yesterday's shopping,
& there's yoga lesson later,
soooo dead
:(
