Happy Graduation Day 2013 from Nanyang Polytechnic


Hi Everyone! Woohoo! It’s Graduation Day and I am now officially graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) at School of Engineering Diploma in Multimedia & Info Comm.  3 Years just pass in a blink of eyes and it was a memorable day to see all the graduates gathered at the NYP Auditorium to witness the day of graduation ceremony.

I am glad to know lots of helpful friends who guided me in my weak subject and friendly lecturers who had taught me for the past three years. I still remembered the day we been through the Common Test, Project and Exam was kind of stress period in life but somehow we still managed to conquer it.

Ristorante Pietrasanta Restaurant has the dining concept of a Family Restaurant in homely Italian style and also the ambient of the restaurant was filled up elegant Italy material display with the crystal glass and solid wooden wall.  The comfortable interior make their consumers feel like home dining and therefore I had a great experience dining in Ristorante Pietrasanta Restaurant.


The foods that chef had prepared was well decorated and it taste appealing and scrumptious. From the Appetizers to Main Courses and follow by Dessert, the proportion of the food was just nice and good to know that they created their signature dishes based on home recipes.


Mozzarella Rolls

Ravioli Spinach

Risotto Saffron with Marrow Bones

Fettuccine

Mixed Sausage

Food Review: Onaka Restaurant & Wine Bar Singapore


Thanks William for the invitation, I get to attend this Food Tasting Session at ONAKA Restaurant & Wine Bar @ ARC some time during earlier of the month.


Before coming to ONAKA, I thought it this must be a Japanese Restaurant; however, ONAKA is actually stands for Optimum Nutrition And Kitchen Arts.  The restaurant's specialty is Conscious Cuisine, serving food using only wholesome and selective organic ingredients in their Asian culinary, with a Western twist.  They hope to promote "Eat Consciously; Live Mindfully"; hoping to inspire their customers to eating in balance and moderation, 

With ONAKA's dedication to use all-natural ingredients without artificial addictives, chemicals, colorings, flavorings , MSG and trans-fats and focus to serve food with Low Glycemic, Gluten Free and Vegan Options; we really need to worry less about what we are putting into our mouth.

About 50% of the menu is Vegetarian; no pork or lard is served at the restaurant.  This is a great news to all, as it's always so difficult to accommodate to each and everyone when all have different eating habits.  One no longer need to worry, if their friend is vegetarian or on strict diet.

Let me bring you through the Conscious Cuisine that Chef Jason Vito, and Chef Benson Tong had prepared for us!

Shooters and Dips

Asian Hummus - a blend of organic chickpeas, tahini, topped with chilli-marinated olives, served with Nacho Chips or Wholemeal Pita Crisps.



Omega Soy Smoothies - The smoothie contains Mango + Banana + Organic Vanilla Soy milk with cinnamon and chia seeds.  It's rich and thick, with a nice fragrance from the Mango and Banana.  This is probably a great alternative to replacement meal for the girl on diet.



Bread Basket  - Actually, the bread taste great to eat on itself, without any dips. Crispy on the outer and fluffy on the inner, dip it into the olive-oil mixed in balsamic vinegar, it gives you a totally different sensation.  The bread is so yummy that most of us ate at least 2 each.



Cold Appetizer

Water Melon Sashimi - One may wonder, is this Water Melon or Sashimi? This is actually of compressed water melon and this is 100% vegetarian.  Dip into the sauce, you totally feel as if you are eating Sashimi while in actually fact, is 100% water-melon.


Tofu Avo - Indulge into this salad with the tasty Tofu and Avocado.  There are even bits of Walnut that adds on some crunchiness!  Perfect for the vegetarian and health conscious!  This ought to be one of my favourite!


Hot Appetizer
Mushroom Tea - This is something unique, I felt like I'm drinking mushroom soup, instead of mushroom tea.  The tea is very clear and gives off a nice aroma of fresh mushroom, love it to bits.  It is clearly a MUST TRY for mushroom lovers!


See the happy face of our beautiful model of the day, Evalee, you will know how much she enjoyed the mushroom tea.


Noodles &Grains
Roasted Mushroom Soba - This is a twist from the usual cold Soba that we eat at Japanese restaurant.  Cooked with mushroom and topped with seafood, this is clearly another great dish for the vegetarian and mushroom lovers.



Hot and Sour Prawns Rice Noodles - I personally do not find this dish very spicy, it tasted very much like Assam Laksa. The rice noodles has a very QQ (springy) texture while the prawns taste awfully fresh and yummy, crispy at the side and yet not overcooked.


Organic Pineapple Fried Rice with Quinoa - Organic Brown Rice is used instead of white rice for this dish.  Personally not so much to my liking, as I will prefer it to be slightly more sour and topped up with some Pork Floss or rather, Chicken Floss, since ONAKA do not serve Pork or Lard. 

 
Meat and Seafood
Duck Confit Pancake - I have never eaten duck in such a manner before, it is simply interesting and the honey actually brings out the sweetness of the duck meet. This is another TOP Favourite among all.


Pumpkin Seabass - The roasted pumpkin seeds layered on top of the seabass' skin adds on crunchiness. Tasted a bit blend on itself, but it certainly goes well with the tomato puree.


48hrs Beef - The beef is cooked over 48hrs with red wine reduction which explains why it taste so tender and juicy.  Even for a non beef lover like me, it taste pretty good.


Pear and Salmon - The pear goes really well with the Salmon and it has a refreshing taste, totally in love with it! 


Sweets
Avo Choco Emotion with Cocao 7 Chocolate -  Ain't the dessert look cute???  This is pretty much like an Avocado and Chocolate combination mousse.  Great for those who love dessert but have low thrashold for sugar.


The pricing at ONAKA seems to be of medium-high range, however, if compared to most organic restaurants, ONAKA's price range is actually considered reasonably priced and affordable. Last but not least, check out the current promotion by ONAKA.
