DamniSoft Soft Serve Ice Cream At Suntec City

After Honey Creme, DanmiSoft, from Korea, has also joined the bandwagon. It has currently setup a counter at the left corner of Coffeemin’s Suntec outlet, facing Gong Cha.

There are mixed reviews about DanmiSoft. Some say horrible; others say they prefer DanmiSoft to Honey Creme, while others say it is more valuable. I couldn’t help but to try it and find out for myself.

At DanmiSoft, the flavours available is pretty similar to Honey Creme, except you don’t find the Mixed Grains and Cone. All come in cups.

Now, my verdict?! When I saw the softserve, the first thought that came into my mind was why was it so yellowish and not white.  When I tasted it, I felt I was eating a sweet froyo. It has a texture which is kind of a little rough, like some fine icy crystals were in it. It was pretty sweet. (Comparatively with Honey Creme, yes, it was sweeter.) There was kinda some eggy flavour. (Yes, egg. Some will add eggs to especially froyo, sounded surprising but it is true.)

The cup seems a little bigger than Honey Creme. (But I didn’t measure the volume of the 2 cups so I am not certain. Lol!!)

And finally, the soft serve is priced lower than Honey Creme’s. (So, yes, it is more valuable.)

Next, there is no queue.

Final question, will I return? I still prefer my Softserve with smooth silky texture and slightly milky and not eggy. But as it is more valuable, I might go for it when I am in the area.

Alt. Pizza At Suntec City

I saw the Alt Pizza’s poster weekend 1-for-1 promotion stand around the Fountain at Suntec City weeks ago and has wanted to go for it. I asked my brother, a pizza fan, if he wanted to try. So we decided to go during the F1 weekend and to catch a glimpse of the racing car at work, though I am not a fan.

The Pizza Restaurant had mainly red coloured-furntiure with a little retro elements in the design, such as a picture on the wall with bright colours, the neon lights and the pizza boxes withe retro design that was used to decorate the restaurant. The restaurant isn’t big, and its a pity that the seats were placed very closely to each other.

There were two menu, the food and the drinks. They offer mainly pizza with some sides. If you can’t find anything you like from the standard menu pizza, you can customise your own pizza. There are various ingredients for you to choose.

Alt Pizza offer thin based pizza which I am sure many will welcome. It has the best bread based. It is thin enough, giving a crisp and yet there is bread texture and taste in the inside. We have the Hangover Pizza that has tomato sauce with pepperoni, my brother’s favourite and the other is the Alpha Lima Tango Pizza that has a bbq sauce and meatballs. Both are good but we prefer The Hangover Pizza as it is stronger in taste. The meatball on the Alpha Lima Tango Pizza is excellent. We will go for the Meatball only the next time, which is a side item on the menu too.

Certainly, we will return to try more. I am already thinking of the Crabby Ninja for the next round. LOL.

IlaoIlao, No. 1 Yogurt In Europe Is Now In Asia

I have been seeing IlaoIlao on the various blogs and saw another outlet on its way to Plaza Singapura and all these aroused my curiousity about how good can this Yogurt be. I happened to pass by the Marina Square branch, seeing a long queue on the weekday make me really want to try their yogurt.

And I jumped onto the Bandwagon.

You can choose either based on the cup size or that comes with a determined number of topping or alternative you can choose the Sanum which comes with three fruits, a crunch and a sauce of your choice. The most popular selection is the Sanum. I saw almost everyone in front of me chose Sanum. The Sanum reminded me of the Smiles Yogurt I had in Hong Kong. Other items they offer are the Smoothies.

The choices of fruits available that day were banana, strawberry, kiwi, blueberry, mango, pineapple and watermelon.

While the crunch, there were walnut, almond crocanti, Ilaocasitos, chocolate, Kit Kat, Coconut, Oreo, and a few more others …

Lastly, it was the sauces. There were Wild Strawberries, Mango, Coffee, Raffaello, white chocolate and rum with rasins.

My order was of course has to be the Sanum. My choice of fruits were strawberry, blueberries and mango with almond crunch and rafaello sauce.

My Order, The Sanum

The most important question, how’s the taste? The yogurt has a lighter taste than most in the market or most that I have tried so far. But the creaminess and sourness were very light. It was the Rafaello sauce that created an uniqueness in the entire dessert. The Rafaello has a sweetish white chocolate and coconut taste. This sauce compliment very well with the sourish from the yogurt. I didn’t like the crunch as the texture is like having sand, rough and hard. I feel like I am eating a lot of sand.

I think IlaoIlao is a nice addition, an additional choice though not the best. Its the novelty that is interesting as for the taste I still prefer the Yoguru, perhaps that’s because I like my yogurt more creamy. Nevertheless, I will still return as the pricing is reasonable and I like the yogurt with the Rafaello sauce. The Rafaello sauce is the charm.

Comnam Broken Rice At Raffles City

Comnam Broken Rice is at Raffles City, serving broken rice bow either dry or with soup. They offer some small plates, soup, desserts and drinks too.

I was meeting a friend at Raffles City and so we decided to give it a try.

Menu

We thought that Broken Rice were the most inferior type of rice, shouldn’t it be cheap? But the price per bowl is rather steep.

The design of the restaurant was bright and warm due to the bright warm colour tone, especially the yellow colour paint selected. The table has a bulky leg and that was uncomfortable. We couldn’t place our leg probably. It was very uncomfortable while we were having our meal.

For drinks, we tried the Lotus Tea, not sure what exactly it was. But we think the “tea” leaves was the lotus leaves. It smelled strange, like some herbal medication smell. As for the taste, a little similar to tea. At the end, it tasted very bitter.

Our side dish was the Salad of Grilled Chicken, White Cabbage, Fresh Herbs, Roasted Peanuts and Duet of Steamed Shrimp Tapioca Cake & Hue Shrimp Rice Cake. The salad was refreshing. The taste was light. It was lightly soured too. As fresh herbs was added, there was a nice additional fragrance contributed by t he herb. The texture of the two different cake were different; the one with whole shrimp was soft and chewy, taste a little like the soon kueh while the white cake has only a soft texture. Both were rather bland. You need to dip it with the sauce that was by the side.

Spicy Tomato Dill Crane Pork Soup

The Spicy Tomato Dill Soup has a nice herb fragrance, I suppose it was dill. It is lightly spicy as well. There was a nice lightly pork flavour in the soup too.

Four Treasure Rice Bowl
Four Treasure Rice Bowl

Our main, the Four Treasure Rice Bowl. We find the rice bowl extremely ordinary. All the ingredients in the bowl was bland. We were looking for chilli sauce and fish sauce to dip the ingredient.

The final verdict. The food, in particular the main wasn’t impressive, the small plates and soup were decent though. And the seats were very much uncomfortable. We didn’t really enjoy the food mainly due to the seats.
