O My Dog!

I recently went to Great World City with Shi Min and we chanced upon O My Dog! which is part of Skinny Pizza.

It was nearing dinner time and i didn’t want to eat a hot dog (even though i would try it next time).

What we did have this time is…


It’s kinda a cute place. and what we tried this time was the Truffle Taro Fries!


It is $4 for a small packet. The taro are sliced into thin thin strips and we liked it! This is definitely something i would order again to eat while walking around at Great World City. Love it! It had a great scent and taste of truffles!

Beef Noodles @ Toa Payoh

I really need to know the name of this stall.

I chanced upon this little stall at a Toa Payoh coffeeshop when i needed dinner with my mum one night.

And i really like eating beef noodles – dry, with a bowl of soup.


What i like about this is that the sauce is nicely thickened, there are no lumpy lumps. It is not so thick that you just know they have used too much cornstarch. The texture is great.

Also, while the chilli it comes with is nothing fantastic, it is spicy and sour – a perfect accompaniment.

A normal bowl is $4.50 but fish added 4 beef balls each.

There is a minimum of 2 beef balls for $1.

These are not your common run-of-the-mill beef balls you find in the supermarket. It would seem like these are homemade and are well flavoured.


This is our table for dinner and it was a simple dinner – which we hardly have but i think we should have more often, cause i did enjoy it.

This coffeeshop is located next to Toa Payoh Courts and has a big chicken rice stall – so you shouldn’t miss it.

Can’t wait to return again! :D

Okinawan Diner Nirai-Kanai @ Liang Court

Liang Court is one of my newest hangout simply because it fulfils my criteria of being a less congested but yet still lively place.

Another big reason is because there are so many Japanese restaurants there!

One that i have recently gone with fish is an Okinawan Diner at the basement of Liang Court.

It seems to serve very homely and authentic Japanese food. This is not a restaurant you go to if you are looking to eat sushi, sashimi and the likes thereof.

One of our favourite items that we have tried is …….


This is a type of gourd which is called silk gourd translating directly from its chinese name si gua 丝瓜. I love this – it’s basically si gua and tofu simmered/braised in a miso based broth. Delicious! I would so get this in a set the next time i’m there.


This is … seaweed tempura. Yumm! It’s not completely crunchy since seaweed obviously isn’t. This is not the thin crunchy seaweed you buy in packets. It’s the soft version. We really liked this since we love adding extra seaweed in our ramen usually. Definitely will order this again!


This is really delicious! Deep-fried mincemeat patties! A little on the salty side, but oh! so delish!

This is what  got for my main dish. It’s fried noodles in a salt-base with a poached egg on top. So i poked the egg yolk and mixed the egg with my noodles! Love it! But i would try something else next time. just for variety sake.


This is what dish ordered – a pork belly set since we heard that their pork belly is awesome. but, we were unfortunately disappointed with this. It wasn’t as soft and tender as we had wished. Fish also changed the rice to okinawan rice which is flavoured rice with mushrooms and vegetables – we like this rice but it was i think $2 or $2.50 to change to this rice.

The presentation is really good though. See how they arrange the veggies to look like a tree?


Definitely worth a visit if you go to Liang Court!

Skinny Pizza (Wheelock Place)


It’s been a while. a real long while. The new year has come and this year is one full of trepidation and fear and hope and all other sorts of emotions for me. I also want to re-start on my blog – i’ve been neglecting it for far too long.

So for my first post in the hopefully-going-to-be-awesome new year, i’m gonna be documenting a place that me and fish like eating at – maybe a little bit more me than fish.

It’s called – as the title of the post suggests – Skinny Pizza. and the branch that i always go to is the one at Wheelock Place. Simply because i prefer to be away from the crowd – i like a place that has enough people to be vibrant and lively but not so much that i wanna get out of there asap.

So, of course, this place specializes in pizza.. but what makes its skinny? It’s low on carbs, because the traditional pizza dough is not present here, what we do have instead, is a base of super thin crunchy layer that still provides the mouth-feel of having some sort of carbohydrates, but yet not so much that you feel incredibly full after a few slices. What it provides instead, is the ability to enjoy and taste the various different flavours of the pizza.

In our case, we decided on “The English Breakfast”.


This has fresh rocket leaves, fried bacon, sautéed mushrooms, a yummo fried egg and shaved parmesan. This has to be one of my favourite-test flavour combo! (I leave the rocket leaves to fish though.. hehe)

With 1 pizza, we obviously need sides! 3 sides for $15.


We have here… Seared Brie Cheese. Which only i will eat because fish doesn’t like to eat brie or blue cheeses. It is not so much seared then fried in a crust of pistachios which i love. 


Truffle Fries! Need i say much more?


1/4 metre long Spicy Chicken Sausage! I love the spiciness. and i love chicken sausage.

And now…. for drinks!


This is the Riverside Raspberry Julep Can-Can Mocktail. $6 each.

I really like this because i love lychees. I can’t exactly remember what there are in this drink – but the lychee flavour is quite prominent and that is what i love about this drink.


Fish chose an alcoholic drink that came in a tiffin. I don’t remember what it is exactly but it tastes quite good and fish liked it.

And thus,

We end our dinner.

Disclaimer: This is actually less than what we would usually eat. cause i wasn’t hungry that day. if i were, i think we might need 2 pizzas!
