Cheng's Seafood Village

Have you been to Farm Mart? If you have, then you will know which store I'm talking about. Near Choa Chu Kang, Hubby would regularly visit the place during lunch to buy some fishes for his mini aquarium. So one evening, he suggested that place for dinner.

There were several food stores there, including this tze char store. So 1st up, rojak!

Looks good, but if you want to compare with the Soon Heng rojak store at Toa Payoh, this plate of stuff was total crap. The yu char kuey was soggy, the sauce was too watery, and it was just not very good!

The next dish was the main reason we were there. I was craving for some good, chinese style mee goreng! (S$4.50)

It was quite good, there was plenty of fish, prawns and sotong in it. The sauce was not very spicy, but it's ok. Overall, a pretty hearty dish. Luckily we ordered only one plate in "small". Together with the other dishes, we can hardly finish this plate! So one "small" portion can be shared with 2 persons lah.

The lady suggested la-la, and it's been so long since I had some, so why not? Turns out to be a super yummy dish! It's got this beautiful curry leaves flavour to it, the la-la was very fresh, very good! (S$10.00)

Hubby was in a mood for frogs, so we ordered some King Pao frogs. Another super yummy dish! The kung pao sauce was so fragrant, and the frog was very tender. Good! (S$14.00)

Other than the yummy, affordable food, I really liked the surroundings. It's surrounded by all those plant nurseries, fish farms, etc, so the surroundings was very peaceful, quiet, and cooling! Great place to bring the whole family for dinner when the weather is fine.

Sole Pomodoro Pizzeria

Saw this recommended by ieatishootipost, and Cobby and I were such pizza lovers ever since our honeymoon trip to Rome, so how can we resist? So one saturday we headed down to the restaurant to check it out.

The place was located just opposite the REX cinema near Little India, so it was quite easy to locate. Just as described, they really use a wood fire oven for their pizza!

I like it that the atmosphere was very nice and casual. The restaurant is open air, and the kitchen staff were all dressed in bermudas and crocs. Even the head chef, which I guess is Italian? But with the long apron, they look as if they were wearing sarongs. :D

We weren't sure what to order, but they were famous for their imported buffalo cheese. But when we saw the cured beef with rocket and parmesean cheese, we couldn't resist ordering. It's my favourite!

There were so many choices of pizza, so we ended up ordering a spicy italian sausage pizza to share. We were quite surprised to see that they added chilli to the pizza.

The pizza was delicious! The crust was crispy on the outer skirts, chewy on the inside. The middle part was nice and cheesy, and the sausages were delicious. We weren't very enthusiastic about the chilli at 1st, but we found out that it actually taste quite good with the pizza. It's not chilli padi, but the bigger ones that was not too spicy, so it's like a spicy vegetable taste to complement the pizza. Not bad!

I wanted to order two pizza, but Hubby suggested otherwise. Thankfully, because we were quite full after that. Nonetheless, we had ordered dessert. Afterall, desserts belong to a whole different part of the stomach. :)

Hubby ordered Tiramisu, which I wasn't really into, so I can't judge whether it was good or bad. But Hubby said it was quite good, so there.

I ordered a warm chocolate cake, which was a little runny in the middle. But it was a little light for my taste. I like my warm chocolate cake rich and chocolatey! But it wasn't bad, just not up to my standards. :)

Overall a pretty good dining experience. The staff was nice and friendly, the price was not too expensive. Will definitely go back again!
