TUNG LOK SEAFOOD - The Singapore Taste @ ORCHARD CENTRAL - "1st TASTING & AWARD WINNING !!!" - AUGUST 15 2012

I have been looking forward to check out and taste TUNG LOK SEAFOOD for the longest time ! And finally when I was appointed by the Restuarant Association of Singapore to be on their Judging Panel for the EPICUREAN STAR AWARDS,I was most happy when I received the List of Selected Most Popular Eats that I needed to judge and taste,I noted & look forward to :


Since there will be "lots of Signature Eats" to order and taste,I was most happy to invite my Parents and my Good Friends - Jansen & Doris for this Enjoyable Lunch !!! It was a good idea that I didn't request for any VIP Room so that I can have a good look at their Biz during Lunch ! And we were impressed that since the Car Park Design @ Orchard Central is not the Best Design and with TUNG LOK SEAFOOD on 11/F,most tables was taken up especially the "Window Seatings" ( facing Orchard Road )  it was "almost packed with loyal Tung Lok Seafood Regulars or we thought their Chef's Cooking must be really Good Standard !!! ;-)

So while waiting for their arrival of my VVIP Guests,I had to do a "quick tour" to have a good look at their DECOR :




SERVICE : Maybe it was Good Timing for my Judging Lunch Tasting that their Senior Vice President - Operations - CHUA POH YORK was there !!! She's very experienced ( plus her capable Restaurant Manager - IRIS LOKE ) and they made sure that every table was well served or any feedbacks were immediately well taken care of !!!  ;-)

FOOD QUALITY : I told both of them that it was our 1st Lunch Tasting so we requested to know their Recommended Signature Eats & we definitely Impressed with our LUNCH MENU :


MUST TASTE - SIGNATURE EATS - "TUNG LOK SEAFOOD PLATTER"

MUST TASTE - SIGNATURE EATS - "DEEP-FRIED PRAWNS WITH
WASABI-MAYO SAUCE"






After the above Enjoyable Eats,everyone was Happy and we gave Top Marks for the Food Presentation,Quality and Tastings !!! ;-)

And of course I was Most Happy when TUNG LOK SEAFOOD was announced WINNER of the BEST RESTAURANT - ASIAN ( OTHERS ) !!! CONGRATS !!! ;-)

Cheers & Enjoy !!!

FAT COW @ CAMDEN - "1st Time DINNER TASTINGS" - AUGUST 15 2012

Since my earlier 1st TIME LUNCH TASTINGS @ FAT COW @ the start of tis year 2012,I have not had the Good Opportunity till today because since then there have been too many Exciting & Yummy Eats to check out & add to tis ShareFavEatsAlways BLOG !!! So Many thanks to my Judging Tasting Assignment for EPICUREAN STAR AWARD 2012,I was most happy to do a Re-Visit especially for DINNER !!! ;-)


Personally I thought it may be a better idea to Enjoy Dinner instead of Lunch because - it's easier to park and of course the feeling is more relaxed !!! ;-)



I was Most Happy to Meet up with their 5 Star - Experienced Manager DAX !!! Of course he had No Idea about my Judging Role ( till at the end of the Meal when I present him the letter from RAS - Restuarant Association of Singapore ) !!! Anyway his Service have always been Consistently Good !!! And of course I look forward to Changes for my Dinner Tastings liked I prefer to seated in front of the CHEF WING LAM ( from KINKI )  instead of their VIP Room Section !!! ;-)




Since their DINNER MENU is on the High Side & with a "tight Tasting Budget" I can Invite Only another Foodie Friend - JP ( a Good Friend from Hong Kong ) !!! ;-)



Our other Good Friend - JL was with me on the 1st Lunch Tastings ( and he was really not impressed from their Car Park to especially the Expensive Billing at the end of the Eats !!! ) - he told me that he was too busy and can only join me the Next Tastings ( @ Feng Shui Inn at RWS - see Next Posting soon !!! ;-)



So likewise I can only "Afford" the above RED WINE which of course was recommended by DAX - which tasted quite easy drinking !!! ( Watch out for the other "Limited Edition" Drink @ the end of the above Enjoyable Dinner Tastings !!! ) ;-)

DINNER MENU - since it was JP's "Introduction Tastings @ FAT COW" I thought it was a Good Idea that I order their Signature Appetizers that I have already tasted on my 1st Lunch Tastings liked -





But on the MAIN COURSE - since I have already tasted their SHABU SHABU,I would prefer to order & taste the Good Quality and Cooking Skills for their STEAK -





And of course our Enjoyable Dinner Tastings need a Sweet Finale Tastings ( which was specially arranged by both Chef and DAX !!! ;-) ) -




And here was our "Bonus @ the End of Dinner Treat from FAT COW - "Limited Edition & Only Available @ Fat Cow WHISKEY made with Maple by MaCallen ( because Dax told us that whatever available in the market which was Auction was brought by Fat Cow !!! ;-) ) Both JP and myself was thinking of "ordering Pancakes to enjoy tis !!! Haha !!! ;-)



From the Chef's Table to their BAR area ( we already drank too much to enjoy their FAT COW's Special Cocktails !!! ;-) )



And DAX have alerted me that a NEW LUNCH MENU will be created soon !!! Will look forward to that !!! ;-)

Cheers & Enjoy !!!

So from The China Club,I quickly drove over to a location where there are "so many Italian Eats ( the list is too long but if U follow my ShareFavEatsAlways Blog,U will probably guess which are my Fav Italian Eats !!! ) but since I Luv Italian Eats,of course I welcome another New Italian Eats !!! ;-)



I actually Luv all tis Shophouses @ CRAIG ROAD and CHEF MARIO have picked an Excellent Location but once I entered inITALY,I needed some time to "sort out my thoughts on their DECOR but after awhile & with more tables taken up,I started to feel more comfortable with the cosy & comfortable Decor !!!" ;-)







- CHEF MARIO's Expensive Investment !!! ;-)
MENU - I actually had to re-look @ their - THE ITALIAN MENU $15 - ( I was thinking "tis is really Value for $$$ !!!" ;-) ) and I still check with ( ex-La Luna ) MANAGER HOST - TONY LEONG on Chef Mario's Signatures on the Ala Carte Menu,he highly recommended several but I juz had to kick start inITALY with above Menu -

- "Enjoyable Introduction Lunch" - August 10 2012 -

- "BEER BREAD with SALSA VERDE
( Fresh Parsley Sauce ) - Enjoyed Tis

- ZUPPA PAVESE - Beef Broth with FRESH EGG ( Thought
the Soup was not Hot Enough to Cook The Raw Egg !!! But I
Was Told That Tis Was The Italian Style !!! ;-) )
Lodigiano Cheese and Crouton
- Of course since I Luv PASTA very much,I had to order tis below -

- HomeMade Spaghettini with Seafood and Tomatoes
( I noticed there's lots of Tomatoes so it's really
Healthy Cooking !!! ;-) ) Enjoyed Tis !!! ;-)
- SPECIAL NOTE - U need to read that MENU closely because if U want to enjoy their DOLCI ( Desserts ) please Add $8 !!! ;-)

- DOLCI - "GRANITA AL CAFFE" - $8
- 1st Time to Enjoy Tis !!! ;-)
- It was good that I managed to have a quick introduction chat with Chef Mario ! And he told me that he was Ex-Forlino and also he have worked @ Grand Hyatt HK.So I asked him if he knows - "the King of White Truffle - Chef Bombana - from 8 1/2 Otto E Mezzo" and he immediately walk over to take out this Book and showed it to me ! They were Good Friends !!! It was great to know tis !!! ;-)

- A Special Introduction Treat from
Chef Mario !!! "Potent Stuffs !!!" ;-)

And of course it was a Big Bonus since this Special Lunch was arranged by their "enterprising & well travelled" Boss Man - Andrew Tjioe !!! ;-)
