Food Review: IPPIN Cafe Bar at Mohamed Sultan Road

When it comes to Japanese food, so many food venues pop up in your head. But let me add one new Japanese must-go place into your dictionary! Introducing, IPPIN CAFE BAR!

One unique thing about this place which set a difference between other Japanese places is the ambiance and the concept. Tucked among Mohammad Sultan road, this cafe bar provides a homely ambiance. It's like going home where Japanese would usually say TADAIMA. Also, whatever you eat in the restaurant is available for purchasing as well. For example, if you think that the tea is good, you can purchase the tea leaves and etc... It practically lets you bring a part of them home:)


We tried a couple of their signature dishes of which I've list down 3 as MUST-TRY.

1. PLUM WINE

With an extensive collection of wines, shoju and sake, the best of all must be the plum wine. The taste of plum is so present that the liquor doesn't taste that overpowering. It's good to have it before and after meal. Best of all, it aids in LOSING WEIGHT!

2. FRIED OYSTER

For someone who don't really fancy Oyster, mainly because of the fishy smell/taste, this is the first time Oysters appeals to me. The light batter coated outside the oyster was so crunchy yet not too-batter-y and the oysters were super tasty. Best of all is, you can buy back a frozen pack and fry it yourself at home!

3. PORK STEW WITH POTATO AND CARROT

This is one of my favorites. First bite and it brings you back home! Best coupled with rice and bread ( they don't serve bread but that's my recommendation) It's a bit like comfort food but super tasty and I guarantee you'll want more.



Prices are NETT price and there's free WiFi. Psst: really fast WiFi. Recommended way to head down: Clarke Quay MRT and walk towards Park Hotel.


IPPIN Cafe Bar Location Address:
IPPIN CAFE BAR, 
18 Mohamed Sultan Road

Opening Hours: 
Monday -Saturday: 11am-11pm

Korean TWENTY (스물) Movie Review


TWENTY (스물) Movie Review:
What have you done in your age of golden twenties? Well, Korea new release comedy and romance movie’s ‘Twenty’ will recall your youth memories. ‘Twenty’ is one of my favourite Korean movies in this summer. This is a lovely and creative film story written and directed by director’s Lee Byeong-Heon.




This film features a group of prominent and eye-candid Korean artistes such as Kim Woo-bin, Kang Ha-nuel and Lee Jun-ho, Jung So-min, Lee Yu-Bi and Min Hyo-rin. The movie tells a story of the three best buddies who turn twenty and sharing the most embarrassing moment of their lives. Splitting into three different comedy scenario, ‘Twenty’ movie will make you laugh like crazy throughout the whole two hour screening.

I rate this Korean ‘Twenty’ movie: 4/5 stars. Korean TWENTY (스물) movie will be releasing on 25th June 2015 in Singapore cinema theaters.



TWENTY (스물) Movie Synopsis:
A super-charming slacker who pursues a life of doing nothing after high school; a retaker who works hard for his dream of becoming a cartoon artist despite the financial harships; a college freshman whose college activities are entirely geared toward attaining his ultimate goal of landing a job in a global corporation...

A radiant comedy about three best buddies who turn twenty to share the most embarrassing moment of their lives!

TOP 7 MUST EAT Food in FengJia Night Market (逢甲夜市)

During my days spent in Taiwan, I visited my first ever night market outing in Taichung, Fengjia Night Market. It is one of the largest and prominent night markets nestled in Taiwan, selling a dynamic range of products of authentic Taiwanese foods and latest fashions.

The FengJia Night Market is located right next to the Feng Chia University and with the increase interest of food and fashion, it has attracted youngest to walk along this casual street. Hence, it was an eye-opening night for me too.


In this trip, I am glad to know a group of friendly Taiwanese friends and appreciate their time spent with us in visiting the FengJia Night Market. Through their guide, they had brought us to hunt good food in FengJia Night Street and today I am going to share with you guys the TOP 7 MUST EAT FOOD in FengJia Night Market, cost less than S$4 SGD each!


TOP 7 MUST EAT FOOD in Fengjia Night Market!

It is a must TRY because you probably won’t find the same authentic taste in Singapore or in other country!


1. 大肠包小肠

Turning in at the right corner of Fengjia Night Market Street, you will find this famous stall selling大肠包小肠, one of the most authentic foods in Taiwan whereby you will be biting sausage within a sausage.  It is quite fulfilling in term of the bun size, yet is recommend for sharing.


2. 明倫蛋饼

Follow by the明倫蛋饼, one of my favourite street dishes in Fengjia Night Market. Fresh egg mixed with healthy ingredients to create a flavourful taste pancake.


3. 台灣臭豆腐

The smelly Toufu probably is the least choice among all people but I managed to try my first bite on this 臭豆腐! Guess what! It tastes awesome! The aftertaste is not smelly at all!!! Lolol… Don’t get trick by its smell.


4. 芋头冰

Beside smelly stall, there is this small booth selling Taro ice drink. It is also one of the famous Taro booths in Fengjia Night Street selling a range of Taro drinks. Worth to try!


5. 台灣炸雞扒

If you are in Taiwan, you will never want to miss out their crispy Taiwanese Fried Chicken!
