This year, when Lishan sent an email me a few months ago that she found one nice Japanese place, called Horoki. I was smiling and quickly wrote her back that is another my favourite restaurant too...
Then our dinner was at 6.30 pm on Friday night. Unfortunately Dennis was busy so he couldn't come.
We-Ja, Deryk and Henrik, arrived there first then Lishan came 5 minutes later.
Cheap eats champ 2007
Lishan's Apple Tea. They serve each tea in a different style pot...so cute. At first we thought the waitress forgot to bring a cup.
Then Deryk saw it is the cup underneath the pot..wow...hehe
This dish was amazing....my favourite !!! (all of us too) First spoon in my mouth...my goodness...the soy dressing was really wonderful. I can taste the olive oil, the sour and a bit sweet, the cheese made it more completed. Too bad that it was too little!
Good thing of this dish was the charcoal smell...but the flavour was too light, we can't get any taste much (maybe because it was too little too.. 1 piece per person ^ ^'')
Wonderful again ! We all love this dish...the dressing was very delicious and especially when you eat the spinach, garlic, bacon and the deep fried noodle on top all together in the same time....ahhh
I used the spoon to drink the dressing lol.
The duck was roasted nicely and tender. The deep fried eggplant batons was coated nicely with the miso sauce...quite ok for me...but it was not as good as I thought....I think the sauce was similar as Peking duck sauce which I like... However, Deryk said this dish was a little too sweet for his liking.
I wanna try this dish for long time...finally got a chance.
It was fantastic !!!!!!!! (in this review, I just used too much good ''adjective'' for description...Can't help ! too good). It was creamy, a bit spicy and soooo tasty *laught*
Henrik poured the egg on top and mixed it....Ahhh....wanna eat again...Sesame oil give a special aroma.
Soft shell crabs....lucky it came into 4 pieces... The plate was painted with sour cream mayonnaise flecked with baby capers and yuzu...(at first I thought the white cream was a part of the plate..lol)
The crab was crispy and nice but not so special.
We finished 8 dishes already...but the portion was so small .....we ordered more !
Beautiful taste and apperance...The daikon was very super crunchy ! Again, I have to say that this restaurant is very good at dressing .
Roasted Octopus with garlic butter $12.80 : Pods of octopus served sizzling in a garlic butter sauce. Served with a fresh bread.
Look like escargot...very good ! (but 6 pods of octopus came with 4 pieces of bread T_T)
I think we ordered about half of menu already....I really when eating with this family..cuz 2 boys love to eat and can eat a lot !! This holiday my stomach got much improved ^ ^
Dessert time !!! They 3 had green tea ice cream and I was the only one had Tiramisu...
Henrik and Lishan ...Actually this time I wanna sit next to Lishan ><
Deryk and Ja...I like this picture by the way...I think I am looking good lol
The meeting time was 9.15 pm....we got a half an hour ...I was surprised Deryk wanna drink Hot & Cold at San Churros...My god I was so full...Anyway, I still had Caramel Mocha (made me slept at 3.30 am that night), Henrik had classic spanish hot chocolate...
PS. I was satisfied my Batman movie ^ ^
