Ramen and Sandwich on a Friday

Ramen with black soup base

Ramen with black soup base

A few weeks ago I went to a Ramen shop at Star Vista for lunch. The ramen sold at that shop  was slightly different from the one that I have eaten before. I ordered black pork ramen with a black soup base. I have always wondered how the black soup base would taste like compared to the normal soup base that I have tried before.

It wasn’t as tasty as I imagined that it would be. In fact I found the broth a bit too oily for my liking and nothing really spectacular. I guess that many ramen shops in Singapore are simply overrated and certainly not worth the $16-$18 for a bowl.

Sandwich and Soup

During a lunchtime date with R  I tried out this set meal at Greenwich Shopping Mall. It had a sandwich shop similar to Subway.  I ordered a turkey ham sandwich and a soup. The sandwich was really tasty but the soup was a bit too cheesy for my liking.

What have you been eating this week?


Chocomisu on a Friday

the cake

I’ve been thinking about doing a non baked cake for awhile. After being tempted seeing Karen’s Tiramisu which she baked a few months back I decided to make my own.  I didn’t really fancy having coffee in a cake so I substituted it with hot chocolate instead . I used a round 9 inch springform pan and chilled the cake for approximately 8 hrs. It tasted heavenly but was a bit too “rich” for me to eat it by myself. The kids did take a small piece each and we shared the cake with our neighbour and her kids.

A slice

AS you see that it’s really creamy as there is both mascarpone cheese and whipped cream inside.  The cake literally melts in your mouth as you eat it.

Have you baked anything recently?
