Tony Roma's @ Suntec City

My Dad was craving for Tony Roma's Famous Ribs so we decided to dine at Tony Roma's on his Birthday. It's been few years back since I dined at Tony Roma's, the location of the restaurant has moved in Suntec City, I still prefer the old Tony Roma's interior design compared to the recent one.
3 Temasek Boulevard #B1-123 
Suntec City Mall, Tower 5
  Singapore 038983

Operating Hours:
Monday - Friday 
11.30am - 3.00pm (Last order: 2:30pm) 
6.00pm - 10.00pm (Last order: 9:30pm) 

Thursday - Sunday (including PH) 
11.30am - 10.00pm (Last order: 9:30pm)


Missed the old interior design which look more classy~ Used to be long queue everytime and I need to wait very long with my friends last time.. They just relocated the location on the 7th of June 2012! :(

You can find Tony Roma's Menu on their website, I actually love Restaurants have their menu include price on their website because this totally suits people like me to choose and decide what to order before I dine at the restaurant. Personally, I take very long time to browse and take my order~ =)

The Tony's Dessert TR!O is not included on their website menu, so I took a photo of the dessert in the menu.

Our starters, Baguette and Garlic butter spread

*Note: A complimentary Baguette and Garlic Butter Spread.

The small baguette is crispy and can feel the warmness mixed perfect with their garlic butter spread.

Soup of the Day, Mushroom Soup (SG$6.90)

Wow I can say the Mushroom Soup tasted really good! =D

Onion Loaf, Full (SG$13.90)

The Onion Loaf is huge... Haha, Ok you might want to order Half of it next time if you 
visit Tony Roma's. Half for SG$9.90 ^^

Real and fresh onions stripes put together and fried with their batter, it's really crispy, and fun to eat it with your hands. I suggest more sauce or better sauce options like nacho's cheese or extra punch of sour cream.

Here comes the Combo Set of Fish Fillet & Baby Back Ribs, 2 Side orders of a Cole slaw & French fries. (SG$30.90)

We all love the Fish Fillet so much, the plate is actually huge so it will look bigger portion in real life. =X

The Original Baby Back Ribs (Full) 2 Side orders of Baked Potato & Fries (SG$34.90)

Both sauce were Tony Roma's Original BBQ Sauce, the marinate have not absorbed fully in the pork ribs but overall still fine. The fries were very suitable for our liking as it's long, fat and less salt, still crispy when it is cold. Baked Potato totally failed, I can't taste the great potato taste and the toppings are sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon crisps, some sprinkle of spring onions and lastly butter in the baked potato. The cole slaw was very normal. 

We were told that the mashed potato was not available for the day.

*Tony Roma's Side Order Choices:
Rib entrĂ©es and Popular Combos (except Feast Platters)  are served with two choices of cole slaw, baked potato,  mashed potatoes, french fries, ranch style beans, rice,  corn on the cob or broccoli.

A closer look for the Pork Rib's meat~ =)

Our dessert, Tony's Dessert TR!O (SG$18.90)

Comes with 3 different desserts, totally a great option if you dine with 3 or more people.
Strawberry Brownie Royal, Chocolate Cookie & Classic Truffle.

The Strawberry Brownie Royal, it will be better if the sauce is served with a more authentic strawberry sauce~ Brownie was normal.

Chocolate Cookie, Gosh... The cookie tasted so delicious!!! That's my highlight for the day! Cookie has big chunks of chocolate chips matches so well with the ice cream and caramel... Can I have your cookie recipe? Lolx... =P

Classic Truffle, at first it looks unflattering but after you cut it apart... Looks cute =X

Suit my dad's taste and he said, can I have all? Haha... Ok it's not really sweet and he loves chocolate flavors a lot so ya of course we let him have all~ =)

The whole classic truffle is a All-icecream-Dessert.

Place & Ambiance 6/10
Prefer the old location & it's interior design which looks more classy and you feel great to pay even it's expensive. The new design, darker, older design. Not sure why it was warm if you sit further inside the restaurant, we decided to change our seats.

Customer Service 9.5/10
I am not sure for other customers, but is it our lucky day? We were served tremendously good so I gave their service 9.5! Not only 1 waiter/waitress kept coming to our table, excellent service... Refill of water was very alert, food was served very fast. Asked by more than 1 waiter/waitress "How's the food"? Wow Thumbs up!! Many restaurants have to learn from them seriously... Even if the Food does not taste so well, with such excellent service you feel so welcomed and will be back again. Better than some Hotel Restaurants, "eehemmm"....

Food 7.5/10
Ribs has been what they are famous for more than a decade, but I am more interested in other dishes than their ribs, maybe I will try Carolina Honeys Ribs next time again which I used to have them few years back.

Price 7/10
As the portion are huge,  my family of 4 person ordered only 2 main dish and a side order of Full Onion Loaf, soup, desserts was already very filling... Ladies usually can't eat a lot.. Hehe... Total we spent SG$129.45 (includes GST 7% & Service Charge of 10%) We also have a $10 Dining Voucher to use only for OCBC Bank Card Members.

Overall Ratings 7.9/10
The Overall Ratings scores are given by myself. ^^

Will I be back again?
Yes. Nothing really disappoints me except the new interior design look, hope they will maintain their excellent customer services and improve some of their food standards.

[CLOSED] KinsahiYa Japanese Restaurant, City Square Johor Bahru Malaysia

Hello Dearies I guess you all might be wondering why City Square again which I just blogged recently, previous one was at my country Singapore, Sushi Tei City Square Mall. Now I am going to introduce my neighbor country, Malaysia, Johor Bahru's KinsahiYa Japanese Restaurant. It's really easy to cross over from Singapore to Malaysia JB, and the City Square JB is located beside the Malaysia Johor Bahru Customs.
Lot MB-02C, Level B1, JB City Square,
108, Jalan Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru.

They served us, my mommy & me. =) 
A small plate of Salad first before ordering.

Let's check out the menu what to order first. ^^

Looks like a pink shake so I decided to order this. ^^

Side dish to go with ^^

Our Sushi order =)

We ordered the Ramen Curry Set because we saw 2 Japanese Uncles speaking Japanese to each other, beside us eating the set each and it's only RM21.90 so this is super worth it.

Here comes my pink drink, Grape with Milk RM$6.90~ Taste lightly sweetened and just nice for me but tasted a little bit artificial. =X

Pumpkin Koroke RM$9.90 

The Pumpkin Koroke tasted really delicious I can taste Japanese Pumpkin inside.. Yummy~

The Ramen Curry Set only RM$21.90 comes with the Ramen and Japanese Curry with Rice. 

The Ramen soup was really clear and I prefer not so salty, but usually Japanese Ramen Soup base are quite salty. The noodle texture is not what I wanted but overall still ok.. =)

For the Japanese Curry, not up to my standard sorry to say it tasted like many Singapore food court Japanese Stall's Japanese Curry. The rice they provide is not a good grade pearl rice, you will know what I mean if you have higher expectations quality of rice. +_+ 

Couple Maki RM$18.90

The sushi is counted expensive, the mayonnaise saved their sushi rice... Not happy with the long waited sushi we had, it was served when we finished everything up and I need to ask the waiter... Taste still fine, because you can't go wrong with mayonnaise, fish eggs and some meat floss. 

Place & Ambiance
Very small and feels squeezy.

Food?
Still can eat... The Pumpkin Koroke is delicious.

Price?
A total of RM$73.80 added with 10% Service charge and 6% Gov Tax, it's quite expensive when you total up so few dishes together. 

Will I go back again?
To this outlet, I will not go back again but may visit their other Japanese Restaurants which are larger.

The No-No thing~~
Waiters and waitresses were friendly when you entered the restaurant at first, asked many times are you ready to order? But I guess they got tired of coming my table to take order, when I am ready to take order nobody responded. I need to wave so long then they see me... Some saw and act didn't saw you waving... I am very disappointed with their service, sushi was not served when it's ready, I need to ask them, "Where is my Sushi"? Then they served... 

Overall Ratings 5/10
Doesn't mean there are real Japanese customers eating in the Japanese Restaurant the food will be delicious, but mostly it will be delicious if you see real Japanese customers, for this restaurant, special I guess..  ^^

*everybody's taste and preferences are different, I am looking forward for other restaurants at Malaysia, City Square JB or KSL next time, hope to try out something yummy~ <3

STEAMCREAM an Award-Winning Moisturizer

I got my special sponsored wonderful Award-Winning Moisturizer, STEAMCREAM (Babou) from Japalang Pte Ltd (JPL).

They bring in brands including CURE Natural Aqua Gel, K-Palette, STEAMCREAM, Beautyblender etc.

Using a revolutionary steam-infused manufacturing process, STEAMCREAM provides a long-lasting and intensive moisturizing effect. STEAMCREAM has pioneered the use of a steam technique to create this unique, gentle and loosely-bound emulsion. This looseness allows each ingredient to breakdown and penetrate areas of the skin that other creams find hard to reach. Plant extracts including oatmeal, orange flower water, organic jojoba and lavender oils can reach where they are needed instantly.

What makes STEAMCREAM even more unique is its packaging. This moisturizer comes in many different eye-catching and constantly changing graphic-art aluminium flushed lid tins that are designed in Japan. once sold out, these limited edition eco-friendly tins become a uniquely collectible piece of art.

STEAMCREAM is also committed to being environmentally responsible and ethically sound. Other than practising a non-animal testing policy and using only the highest quality, vegan raw materials, we also encourage customers to reuse the tins for a number of storage options.

Amazing STEAMCREAM facts:

STEAMCREAM's May - June 2012 NEW Designs

With this in mind we need to take extra care of our skin when the seasons change. Introduce STEAMCREAM into your beauty regime and be rest assured your skin will blossom!

STEAMCREAM's Beneficial Ingredients
Lavender Oil is used to calm and balance your skin. With a beautiful herbal scent and unique healing properties, it helps reduce inflamed or sore skin that gets aggravated by our hectic weather conditions. Orange Flower Water helps hydrate the skin and is extremely beneficial for dry and sensitive skin. Rose Absolute gives the moisturizer a divine smell and helps ease dryness and works effectively on hard skin, giving an all-over smooth body feel. Cocoa Butter is rich in anti-oxidants and Vitamin E, and helps to soften and condition skin while defending it against aging. Organic Jojoba Oil helps to retain moisture in our skin and dissolve excess sebum while having wonderful soothing effects on sunburned and irritated skin.

STEAMCREAM's "6 New Limited Edition" tins depict magnificent floral and animal patterns. From the blossoming multi-colored roses of Blumen to Babou's adorable poodle in sunny yellow background these STEAMCREAM tins are the ideal beauty accessory for you.
BABOU
A sweet little poodle puppy lives in a Marrakech riadh, a haven of peace behind the narrow bustling pathways. She's named after Morrocan slippers, babouches, because she loves to play with them. Come to think of it, one of mine's missing... 
*Babou is exclusively available in BHG Singapore only. Or visit BeautyCarousel.com (Free World-Wide Shipping orders above SG$89)

EURASIA
Eurasia features European flowers in an Asian design, combining the delights of both cultures in a calming, colourful creation.
*Eurasia is exclusively available in BHG Singapore only. Or visit BeautyCarousel.com (Free World-Wide Shipping orders above SG$89)

BLUMEN
Blumen means flower in German. The largest flower parade in the world, the Bloemencorso Zundert in Germany, was the inspiration behind this colourful tin. Enjoy the magical moment as people adorned in floral costumes watch vibrant floats past by laden with beautiful flowers. The perfect pot for summer skincare!

DEBORAH
Inspired by one of America's most famous blondes, a wild child leading her band with casually inviting sensuality and a scornful scarlet pout.

CHRYSANTHEME
With beautiful chrysanthemums in pink and purple, it an ideal gift for everyone who loves flowers.

SEDUIRE
Pushing slowly onwards in the dry, dry desert... I start to feel dizzy in the never-ending terra cotta scene. A vivid large lily suddenly appears in the distance. How can there be lily in the desert? In a trance, I walk towards it but discover a flower I know not the name. I call it "Temptation of the Desert" in tribute to its mystery.

STEAMCREAM, the high quality multi-purpose moisturizer, hydrates and cares for skin where other traditionally created products cannot. The power and energy produced by bubbling steam melts and fuses ingredients together at a speed that defies most moisturizer-making methods. The force and intensity of this process allow ingredients to emulsify instantly, whilst creating a loose and gentle formulation. STEAMCREAM's handmade production technique produces a beautifully textured, light face moisturizer that breaks down instantly on contact with the skin, intensifying absorption and allowing each ingredient to penetrate most effectively.

STEAMCREAM's high quality, intensely nourishing and traceable natural ingredients, including moisturizing orange flower water, oatmeal and glycerine with organic almond and jojoba oil and cocoa butter, work both together and individually to provide deep long lasting hydration. The moisturizer is finished with a natural fragrance created from a blend of pure essential oils with healing and toning properties, making STEAMCREAM the perfect product to combat the dry skin.

The Babou design was really cute~ A tin about 75g.

Now, time to un-tape the STEAMCREAM Babou Tin ^^

Ok and let me open it =D

STEAMCREAM is white in color.

Blending it in

I love the smell of STEAMCREAM, it smells like some steam spa I am having. Very relaxing scent too. Also there show no signs of irritations on my face because it can be used on sensitive skin too. My mom actually love it a lot she says STEAMCREAM is way better than all her anti-moisturizing cream... I was actually surprised to hear that! Not kidding.. =)
