La Forketta

Once in awhile we like to visit Dempsey Hill and try out the restaurants there. One evening we decide to try out this Italian restaurant. It looks good and we sat outside in the cool evening air. We were off to a great start as the bread basket they put down was absolutely delicious!

It was SO good with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar! The problem was that we had to fight the bread with our 2 year old girl, who insisted that the bread was hers. -_- We also ordered their minestrone soup, which was like the most chunky minestrone soup I've ever seen. I think they should just call it vegetable and tomato soup. Duh. I prefer that the vegetables in my minestrone to be boiled to death and unrecognizable. Haha...

Cobby ordered a cured beef with wild rocket pizza and I wished that I've ordered that instead. :P

The naughty girl ate so much bread, she couldn't eat anything else.

I ordered the tagliatelle al ragu, which was alright, but it was a little too salty and the pasta was a little too soft for my taste.

I would probably not go back for their pasta, but pizza's pretty good. Go check it out.

Seoul Yummy

The last time we were here, I was out with my girlfriends, celebrating a birthday. We just chose this restaurant as it has the shortest queue, but it turned out to be a pretty good choice as all of us agreed that the food was quite good. I remembered thinking that I would bring Cobby here some other time, so one Saturday, I did!

As usual, there wasn't any queue. I don't know why, I guess everybody's there for Japanese food. The last time I was there, we ordered kimchi soup with rice.

I love kimchi soup, and this was really good. The ingredients was generous and the soup was so flavourful! Perfect with the fluffy rice!

Another one of the highlights was their side dishes. It's quite common to have several free flow side dishes when you go to a Korean restaurant, but their side dishes was super awesome! My favourite was their cold toufu, which was garlic-ky and slightly. Cobby loved their crispy sweet and savoury ikan bilis. Yum!

When I went with Cobby, we ordered the spicy beef soup. Not bad, the meat was quite tender, but not as fabulous as the kimchi soup.

We also ordered the bibimbap. Not bad too, but honestly, the one at Wisma's Food Republic's better.

Overall a hearty and delicious meal. Would probably go back when I have a craving for a hot bowl of kimchi soup with rice. :)
