Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar 2017

ABBEY: We went to the most-talked-about Geylang Serai Bazaar a week before the Ramadhan starts. 

For main meal, I got mutton curry. The mutton is tender and the gravy is spicy, thick and delicious . It really went well with the rice. I also had takoyaki. 

We were looking for something to drink when we stumble upon Bangkok Cafe. They are selling butterscotch drink. Oh boy, it was good; cold, creamy,  and sweet. 

We didn't delve much on the "unicorn" foods. Anyway they are already hyped and being reviewed by all :)

WILL: This is one of the biggest collaboration of HALAL-Certified restaurants all over Singapore. You do not need to travel here and there just take a bite of their different offerings. 

BE WARNED! Some food is just picture perfect but the taste and quality is nadah! So here is the food/drink we lingered in and well-recommended for you to stop wasting money (like we did) in trying most of the stalls at Geylang Serai. 

Here is my top 3. 
--> This Instagram worth and yet worth splurging for, I present to you the rainbow fish burger ($8 with fries) of Word. It is better than any fishburger of any fast food chains. The fillet is tender and fishy? Haha! Don't be fooled of the rainbow bun. Maybe you will think that it is only color and bland taste? Eeeennkkk! Wrong! The bun itself is yummy! 

--> Abbey roamed around and when he came back, he have the Crispy Mushroom ($3) of Power Chicken. Its is truly crispy and there is a kick of spiciness in the end. 

--> Butterscotch Shake of Bangkok Cafe! Caught me by surprise and on the first sip, I decided to forget that night my diet. Well who cares with the numbers of calories. Haha! It is like you are drinking a cooked condensed milk. Plus the scoop of vanilla ice cream! Sugarrr Rush!! :) 

You have few more days for you to catch up this stalls! Eat considerably.

Wildfire Restaurant Chicago - Steaks, Chops & Seafood

ABBEY: Our Kuya and Ate treated us to Wildfire restaurant for our wedding anniversary and Wilma's birthday. It was cold outside but you'll feel warm and homey once you got in. 

We tried their Porterhouse; a combination of New York strip and filet mignon in a single steak. A couple of minutes later and slice of meat was served. The portion is huge. The taste? Juicy, moist and flavorful. Fit for the kings and queens. 

Thank you Kuya and Ate.

WILL: It was our 6th wedding anniversary. Kuya Roy and Ate Abigail, the generous couple, treated as at Wildfire! 

They are correct! The steak in here is pretty humongous and delectable. The meat is "oh-so-juicy" and so tender that you do not need an effort to slice it off from its bones. One serving can fit for me and Abbey's appetite. 

Next, is dessert. To tell you, I have no more space for that meal but when I saw and got one taste of Sundae Sampler. I can't help myself. My tummy moved for accommodate this Wildfire's dessert. haha! Spell G-L-U-T-T-O-N-Y. 

Very recommendable. Thanks Ate and Kuya for our meal and driving us at that place. Till next time. :)

Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches / Jersey Mike's USA - Authentic Sub Sandwich Franchise Since 1956

Jimmy John's
Our first day in Downtown Chicago is almost done and we grab a bite to eat. We went to Jimmy John's (249 S State St). I got J.J.B.L.T for 6.25USD. We were surprised as the sub is cold; not what we used to have here in Singapore from other sandwich shops. That's the only difference I observed compared to Subway. 

Jersey Mike's
Jersey Mike's Subs saved us from "imminent" hunger as the shops around Cadillac Palace Theatre were closed. I ordered Jersey Mike's Famous Philly Hot Sub with free flow of drink. I like the bread the most. It is soft and fresh and the cheese goes well with it.

WILL: Jimmy John's is our snack before we head back home on our first day "all-alone" trip in downtown Chicago.

I frowned when Abbey handed me the cold meal from the counter. With questionable squint, I asked why he gave me a cold sub. He smiled and told me that it is the norm. Blood drained to my face and I started to think how can I eat this freezing sandwich. Surprise, surprise, it was delicious. Their bun is exquisite, crunchy outside but soft and smooth in the inside. The buns' aroma is tempting too! I can eat that unusual cold sub again and again. 

The story behind Jersey Mike's is that there is no other store open for us to have a dinner before the Aladdin show starts. 

Yup! We have no other choice but to dine at Jersey Mike's located at West Monroe Street but it turned out to be radically good! Haha! 

The beef is delectably juicy but not oily. The meat is real meat! Haha! The crews were amazingly helpful. I am glad if this diner will extend up to Asia. :) 

This stores were the reason why we gained more than 5kgs in our 16days stay in Illinois. Haha!
