If you are wondering if this place is kids friendly. Yes it is. We have 4 children amongst us. We have 2 mums who are totally hooked on sashimi.
This is what they ordered, over and over again.
Salmon, Yellow Fin and Octopus.

One of the reasons that we chose this place to eat was that the birthday girl wanted a place that has good sashimi.
The sashimi is not bad. I think because there are many people coming here to eat, the food is fresh because of its quick turnaround.
This is the salmon, tuna and yellow fin sashimi platter.

We celebrated on 21 October, a friend's birthday, the whole bunch of us, met after a long time of not seeing each other.
Hanabi Restaurant is a buffet ala-carte Jap place. You can order as much as you can. The price is $30++ per pax. The food's good.
They have two branches currently. One at Bukit Timah - King's Arcade.
One of the soup I ordered, the Pork Belly Miso Soup. (I think it was miso, I can't really remember) The soup's really good. But a little salty but nice.

If you like Sam Lou Hor Fun, you should try the one at Holland Village. Colleagues and I would come to this place if we are adventurous to go out for lunch.
"Sam Lou" is Cantonese. It stands for 3 ingredients : Hor Fun (Broad Rice Noodles), Ngah Choi (Bean sprouts) and Yu (Fish).

More local desserts.
This is called "Red Ruby". It has a very Thai origin. Actually it is also known as "mock pomegranate in coconut milk".
The red rubies are made to look like red pomegranates. They are made from water chestnuts wrapped in tapioca flour. It will be served with cold coconut milk.
This version is served with green pearl jellies as well and instead of cold coconut milk (with shaved ice) which I prefer.

Here's another local dessert.
Chendol usually consists of coconut milk, gula melaka (palm sugar), green worms thingy (made of pea flour and usually coloured green), red beans, grass jelly (the black thingy in the picture).
If you have them in hawker centres, the price will be around $2 to $3.
This is bought in Holland Village's new food court.

Local Desserts in Asia.
This is the favourite of all times. Ice Kacang. (translated ice red beans).
The bottom of this ice mountain are red beans, grass jelly, atap seeds, and others.
It is then topped with colored syrup and sweet corn.
It usually cost between $2 - $3. This version from the Holland Village Food Court. It was a very very hot day! and only an ice kacang will make my day :-)

This is the lasagna from 211 Roof Terrace Cafe.
This was eaten by my fren Alex. He said it's not bad. I guess you can take his word for it.
211 Roof Terrace Cafe is at the top of Holland Village Shopping Centre.

This is home made. What I prepared with whatever is found in my fridge.
Spicy Karaage Chicken baked in the oven till crispy, then chopped into bite size pieces. Prawns stir fried with garlic and abalone sauce. Parsley chopped up. 2 Kiwi Fruits, cut into cubes. 2 Tomatoes cut up into cubes as well. Mix them all up in the wok where the prawns were fried and that's it. It taste quite delicious.

This is today's lunch. Nasi Bryani from what we usually call the Thaksin Coffee Shop. (Huh? Because there's a Thaksin noodles stall there lah...)
Not too bad, they use to serve in metal plates that has compartments, but it seems that they have changed it to the normal melamine plates now...
$4 for chicken bryani, and $3.50 for mutton byrani.

Sunday afternoon. (That's yesterday) My sister and I were walking at Takashimaya Shopping Centre. She's hungry and was craving for some Tonpeiyaki. Wanted to eat them at those little kiosk, but realise it's no longer there.
There's Aji Tei just beside it, and so, why not..
The Tonpeiyaki. Slices of Pork, cabbage and egg omelette.
Black Pepper Ton Toro.
Grilled White Fish with Cream Sauce. It's served on a hot plate, with the fish in aluminium foil container.
We like all of it except the grilled white fish. The Sundae was refreshing. :-)
An old Japanese couple was eating green tea ice kachang thingy beside us. Looks delicious. But I wonder how they felt about the waitresses. They were shouting mase mase instead. What's that? Isn't it suppose to be irasha imase? I wonder if they understood what they said!
The price was less than $30, Jap Tea included.

Claypot Rice. They are rice cooked inside claypots with chicken meat, salted fish, chinese sausages on top of it. This pictures are taken from the Clementi Block 328 Claypot Rice stall. The one that you have to wait for at least half an hour. They cook the rice from the pot and not the short cuts one that many other stalls do.
The rice comes like this, hot and steaming.
Then you put oil and black sauce over it. Depends on how oily and how black you want the rice to be, it's your choice.
Not too much for us. No oil for us too.
Then you stir and mix everything vigorously. As the claypot is really hot, you got to stir fast before the bottom gets burnt!
After all the hard work stirring, this is what is on my bowl.
Enjoy your food....
