Return Policy: Nice setting to chill out with friends (not really a date place...they got the communal feel right) where food is secondary to company.

UPDATE (21 Aug 2011): Went back for an early dinner. The service there still needs to be improved...slightly nazi-ish. Thankfully, the food was still good and reasonably priced. Their chicken wings were very fried. Nice batter that went well with the accompanying sweet chilli. The stir-fried bittergourd and beef was nicely done, but the beef could be a bit more tender, though the bittergourd was soft and flavourful. The tomato omelette was nicely done in a scrambled egg sort of way, rather than flat omelette style. Tried the black fungus dessert too. Generous amount of black fungus in a sweet broth (not too sweet). But nothing beats the yummy tau suan...seriously, I can just come here and eat tau suan!
UPDATE (22 Aug 2011): This place must be doing something right, if I am back here...again. And that is...the damn Tau Suan!! Also the very reasonably priced, MSG-less food. The eggs and sprouts was a great combi, and the dry stif-fried beef hor fun was very well done. The latter had enough wok-hei and the beef was better than the last time I had it (no tenderiser!). Sadly the curry chicken was not to my liking. Too thick and curry paste-y. It tastes like something I get a prata store. Although the bread that we asked for was nicely charcoal-grilled to crispiness.
Return policy: Will definitely go again for the tau suan, and try the other dishes when I'm in that area.

Flash from the past! The band still rocks. Dolores still has got the pipes after so many years! I last watched them almost 8 years ago in a double bill with No Doubt. The Cranberries played a 90mins set with a pseudo-encore towards the end that was kinda lame. Then again, this is Singapore, also the country where >50% of the crowd sits down during a rock concert...heh! Damn wish I was with the ground crowd which seemed more happening, my section there were only like a handful of us who stood up...sigh. Where's the love? Even had to move one side as I was blocking the peeps behind...sheesh. Anyways, the Irish quartet (now) played all their big hits which got the crowd into a frenzy. Started off slow with "Animal Instinct", built up with "Linger" but by the time they reached "Zombies" and "Ode to My Family" the fans went wild! They did sneak in some of Dolores' solo efforts and some slower tunes, but that felt more like fillers to give the band (and the audience) time to catch their breath. It all ended with a rousing rendition of "Dreams" and the band's promise to be back next year with new material! You think people will come for their new stuffs?
