APPETIZER

Broccoli Platter 25k

Fried marinated broccoli served with tar tar sauce. A plate full of broccoli hihihi.. for those who are vegetarians, this is heaven πŸ˜€ Broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family, whose large flower head is used as a vegetable. When I was a little girl *yeah, once in a long time ago hahaha* I never like broccoli. Now? Still not my favorite hihihihi.. But this menu is quite delicious. Actually you should try it yourself, and tell me about it later, ok? πŸ™‚

Chawan Mushi 20k

Steamed egg in bowl with topping mushroom, chicken and crab. I like this chawan mushi. First when I tried chawan mushi in some restaurant, I thought it was tofu hihihi. But turns out that it was egg custard. Chawanmushi (θŒΆη’—θ’Έγ—,Chawanmushi, literally “tea cup steam” or “steamed in a tea bowl”) is an egg custard dish found in Japan that uses the seeds of ginkgo. Unlike many other custards, it is usually eaten as a dish in a meal.

Mozarella Cheese Stick 30k

Fried cutlet of mozarella cheese served with Thai sauce. This is one of my favorites. Cutlet here means a fried breaded cutlet. Breaded cutlet is a dish made from coating a cutlet of meat with breadcrumbs and deep-frying it. In stick style, this mozarella cheese stick is perfect for snacks if you are too full to eat big meal. You will find yourself cannot stop eating this hahaha just like me πŸ˜€

DESSERT

Chocolate Lava with Vanilla Ice Cream 30k

Until now, this is the best chocolate lava.. Legend has it that this chocolate lava cake was the result of a major culinary disaster. The dessert was meant to be individual chocolate cakes, but a cook took them out of the ovens too soon, and the centers where still liquefied. Since there was no time to cook them further, the Chef simply introduced the dessert as chocolate β€œlava” cake.

Deep Fried Ice Cream 25k

There are 2 flavours, chocolate and vanilla. I used to love fried ice cream, and it’s so hard to find the good one. Now I know where to find it, yaaaaaaaay!!!
