Pu Tien Restaurant

A restaurant serving chinese food originating from xinghua, it's right beside the main road, they have valet parking too.
The decor of this place is quite nice and it's always on full house, remember to make reservation before going down, there's always lots of people waiting outside the restaurant for seats. Waiter and watresses are well informed about their dishes, trying asking them about the various dishes, they will be able to tell you what the dishes are, what they contain and how it's cooked, i was very impressed. Here are some of the dishes they have.
Bitter gourd served in thin raw slices to be taken with honey.
Garlic clams.
Deep fried yam coated duck.
Vege fried with salted and century eggs.
Pu tien white lor mee.
Fried mantou with shredded pork.
Stir fried yam cubes in sweet sauce.
Xing hua fried bee hoon.
Squirrel sweet & sour fish.
Mee sua.
Fried prawn roll with sweet sauce.

Ambrosia - The Mediterranean Restaurant

Got to know about this cafe/restaurant from the web and the menu seems quite interesting. A group of us decided to go there to celebrate goldie's birthday. Ambience is very nice, very cosy place with low tables and we get to sit on the floor. dim lighting, quiet, very suitable for a quiet gathering. but when all customers have left, we started to become rowdy cos we assumed the whole place was ours, haha
Food was good, very tasty, quite spicy, just that it doesn't look that presentable, probably because of the colour of the spices and the yogurt, you'll like the food if you like strong taste.
But maybe the kitchen is small, the food was served very slowly, we waited for more than half an hour for the main. It will be fantastic if the service could improve.

They actally have 2 shopfront near each other, we proceeded to the other one for shisha, this on only serves drinks and shisha, no food here, also very cosily decorated, high ceiling, big windows looking at the commericial buildings at beach road and suntec area.

Sik Wai Sin Eating House

Had dinner at this small shop/restaurant at geylang called sik wai sin eating house. it's along the main geylang road between lor 15 and lor 17 not difficult to find, look for this signboard hanging above the main entrance Leonata reccommended this place to us so he ordered the food, we had fish, beef and prawn with tofu, this place had a very retro ambience, like an old style coffee shop, probably because the place had never been renovated, haha..

Mr. Avocado Exotic Juice

There are quite a few fruit juice stalls in alexandra village hawker centre. it's opposite queensway shopping centre. i especially love the juice from this stall, it used to be called cathay but recently i realised that the signboard has a new name, mr avocado exotic juice. my favourite is the durian juice, very potent!! you gotta try it. their avocado juice and mango milk is very good too.
