The Ultimate Bugis+ Food Trail With Lots of Sumptuous Food [Part 1 of 2]- Blogbuster Series

Last Saturday, Yours Truly and some other Bloggers from omy Blog Club participated in the Bugis+ Food Trail that was organised by omy Blog Club and we were hosted by 12 different Food & Beverage [F&B] Outlets/Restaurants! We spent 6 hours eating non-stop from point to point and at the end of the day, I was so full that I almost swore that I'm never ever gonna touch any sort of food ever again. In fact, I pretty much stoned for 2 days not eating much but recovered from the "ordeal" on the 3rd day. Anyways, the 12 F&B Restaurants/Outlets that hosted us are: 1. Taipei Station 2. Laksania 3. Crystal Jade C-Jade HK Café In 4. Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill 5. Su-ki ya 6. Manhattan Fish Market 7. Seoul Yummy 8. Ramen Champion 9. Ireland’s Potato 10. Marble Slab Creamery 11. Berrylite 12. Aloha Ma Maison

As I took more than 400 photographs during the event itself, I had quite a hard time doing tons of photo editing and because there were so much food that we had, I decided to make photo collages of the different individual restaurant/outlet that we visited.

In this blog entry, I will be sharing about the first 6 restaurants/outlets that we visited and the rest of the other 6 restaurants/outlets will be covered in the next part of our Bugis+ Food Trail Blogbuster Series.

1. Taipei Station

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

Honestly, I really miss Taiwan so much that I can't wait to go back there again in 3 months time. When we were sampling the food from Taipei Station, it really reminded me of the awesome time I had in Taiwan and yes, the quality and authenticity of the food at Taipei Station are rather similar as that which are sold in Taiwan. If you're a Taiwan foodie like me, be sure to try their Sweet Potato Fries, Oyster Vermicelli, Crispy Chicken, and Honey Oolong Milk Tea with Pearl! Their prices are quite reasonable although in Taiwan, it's much cheaper. I can't wait to dine at Taipei Station again for my favourite Taiwanese snacks!

Also, do check out Taipei Station's Facebook Page and follow them on Twitter!

2. Laksania

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

If you're a fan of Laksa, Laksania is the place for you because they're the specialist when it comes to Laksa. They even have Laksa Pasta and Laksa Burgers on their menu too! When we were there, we had 3 different types of Laksa Noodles; the Kelantan Laksa, the Singapore Laksa, and the Sarawak Laksa. Personally, I like their Kelantan Laksa the best because of its distinct flavour. The soup base of the Kelantan Laksa is mainly fish and as a result, many hours are painstakingly spent to debone the fishes by hand to create this dish. And oh, we tried their Chicken Satay as well and I must say, they're really awesome!

By the way, Laksania is also a social enterprise that helps people who have been marginalised by their mental or physical disability to gain employment. They employ the marginalised and enable them so that they can earn a living using their own efforts. Hence, Laksania set up a central kitchen in IMH to hire and train IMH clients.

3. Crystal Jade C-Jade HK Café In

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

When people hear of Crystal Jade, the first thing that comes to their mind is Dim Sum and it is no surprise because Crystal Jade has always been rather well known for their finest Chinese cuisine and its Dim Sum.

Well, C-Jade HK Café In is unlike the typical Crystal Jade fine-dining Restaurant. The dining atmosphere at C-Jade HK Café In is rather causal and they serve a wide selection of Hong Kong local delicacies, some of which with innovative crossover of East and West flavours.

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

During the food tasting session, we had the Chilled Hong Kong Milk Tea, Crispy Macau Pork Chop Bun, Deep-Fried Chicken with Fries and Lemongrass, Hong Kong Cart Noodle, Corned Beef and Cheese Toast, and Old Time Hong Kong Biscuit.

4. Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill is another dining concept by Creative Eateries and it is quite similar as Tajiyama, a Japanese Grill Restaurant also under Creative Eateries.

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

Seriously, Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill is an awesome place for Japanese Grill Meat because the dining atmosphere is very relaxed and casual.

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

The meat is flavourful and well-marinated, and it goes pretty well with the Japanese Asahi Beer. With contemporary pop music playing in the background, Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill is definitely the place to let down your hair and hangout with your friends!

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

If you're looking for the most happening place to dine at, we highly recommend Rocku Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill.

5. Suki-Ya

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

If you're into Shabu Shabu and Sukiyaki, you might want to check out Suki-Ya, a Japanese Hotpot dining concept also by Creative Eateries. While we were there, we sampled 4 different soup bases and out of the 4, I prefer the Kimchi soup base because of its spiciness and flavour. In case you're wondering, Suki-Ya also has a la carte food items besides their usual buffet. For the price of SGD$27 for Suki-Ya's dinner buffet on a weekend, the price is rather reasonable for the high quality of food items that are available.

6. Manhattan Fish Market

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

Manhattan Fish Market is no stranger to us as we have been dining there rather frequently. Honestly, we love Manhattan Fish Market very much because the service standard is always consistent and their food quality and portions are pretty satisfying.

From Bugis+ Food Trail 2013

During the food tasting session, we sampled their Fried Country Mushroom, Garlic Herb Mussels, Caesar Salad with Crispy Whitebait, Manhattan Fish 'N Chips, Manhattan Flaming Seafood Platter, Sizzling Brownie with Ice-Cream, and Citrus Mint Beverage.
