联合晚报 & OMY.sg Presents - Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun

Would like to thank OMY.sg for inviting me to join the first session of this food trail. It was an extremely fulfilling and gratifying Saturday, filled with good food!

The first restaurant we went to was Crystal Jade Korean BBQ at NEX. I never knew Crystal Jade had Korean BBQ until yesterday. And you know what was the best thing? It's a buffet! A pretty wide variety they had as well. 

This are some of the food items that were already on the table I was seated at.

Check out the variety they have! I didn't take the desserts, appetizers area by the way. So it's quite a huge spread.

And here we go!

The best thing is, it's not just BBQ they have, there's also steamboat.


At the same time, there was a chef demonstrating how to make Kimchi. I love kimchi but I never knew pears and apples were used in the process of making the kimchi.

My friends all know I love "three-layer pork"/ pork belly, the above was good but this (below)

WAS THE BOMB MAN!

I can drool just by looking at the photo seriously. Sublime, simply sublime.
Are you drooling too?

Then Ah Lun came by to our table and cooked beef tongue, the right way lol. The texture and everything was perfect. It was one of the main highlight dish.

The surprise dish. The fish was really fresh so it was sweet and together with the sauce. Nice!
Photobucket
Pretty interesting dessert, never seen it before. Jelly with some herbs inside I think, like wolfberries.


And then after finishing our meal there, it was onto the next stop! It took only less than 15 mins to reach there lol, which means our stomachs only had 15 mins to rest.

It was a 7 course meal! After everyone was settled down and all, here comes the first dish!
Photobucket
Can you tell what's in this dish? I sent a fellow foodie a photo of this and he could immediately recognise jellyfish haha. At least he did the term 'foodie' justice. Other than jellyfish, there's clams and fried golden mushrooms as well. Great start to the rest of the 6 dishes.

Second, was soup in a pumpkin. At first the soup was clear but slowly, it started to turn yellowish cos of the pumpkin and the pumpkin taste got stronger which was really good! At first you could just taste the sweetness of seafood (there was abalone, shark fins, sea cucumber), then slowly you could taste the sweetness of the pumpkin as well. Nice combination!

The third dish, the name was 'xian xian' I think. Like salty fish but with a fragrance to it. Definitely got to eat with rice or porridge.
Photobucket
And here's the chef! Addressing us.
Photobucket
And then it was on to the fourth dish.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Japan's famous black pork. Need I say more?
The next dish was a first.
Photobucket
It's not chicken feet, it's goose feet. And it was not bad, I prefer it more than chicken feet lol.
Then it's time for the desserts!
Photobucket
Photobucket
Mango and pomelo sago.
But the next dish is really cute haha. Check it out!

Isn't this dish adorable? Too cute to be eaten la haha. But it kinda looks weird when the head of the penguin gets chewed off lol.


The day was not all food but entertainment as well!
One of the games they had was this 穿衣脱衣 game, where contestants are given 2 mins to wear as much as possible but before the time is up they must remove all the shirts they just put on. Which means they got to to gauge their time well!

Photobucket
And there was also a song performance!
Photobucket
Photobucket
And then there was a lucky draw. Think lady luck was shining on me yesterday haha cos I won one of the $100 meal voucher by the restaurant. So yay I am definitely going back, this time for the dim sum.
Photobucket
And the event ended successfully!

Here's ending this post with a group photo! The girl on my right is the other blogger for this session, Chen Jing. :)


*****


I am a foodie so this gourmet food trail invitation was really lovely! I eat quite alot but still, I was worried my stomach would be filled up before the end of the session haha. We started with an all-you-can-eat buffet so I was trying to make sure I leave enough space in my stomach for the 7 course meal later. And I think I did a pretty good gauge haha cos I was feeling comfortably full after the end of the session.


Thank you 联合晚报 & OMY.sg for organising this, Alvin from OMY.sg for the invitation, Ah Lun for leading this food trail, Crystal Jade Korean BBQ Restaurant and East Ocean Teochew Restaurant for this wonderful food experience.
