U.d.d.e.r.s (Novena)

What is the meaning of udders? Well, it is a baglike organ containing the mammary glands, characteristic of certain female mammals, such as cows, sheep, and goats. In the case of cows, it where the milk comes from. Hence, in this context, Udders is a homegrown parlour that sells ice cream. The value propositions are that the ice cream is fresh, home-made (with no preservatives), healthy, natural and original. Moreover, they are famous for their uniquely flavoured ice cream, some of which are liqueured flavoured.

Menu

Colourful and cheerful menu that is a norm at all its outlets.

This is a cow udder water dispenser. What a way to emphasis on the word udder.

They have ice cream workshops too.

Bailey’s & Bourbon (Premium Range) $3.90

Bailey’s & Bourbon is a combination of  Bailey’s Irish Cream with bourbon. Yes, it is alcoholic and is a best seller. Thought that it was abit diluted in terms of flavour.

Waffle with Mao Shan Wang Durian (Connoisseur Range) and Awesomely Chocolate (Premium Range) $9.70

The waffle at Udders taste great when combined with ice cream! Mao Shan Wang Durian needs no introduction among the locals. Really taste like mao shan wang durian and it is also their best seller. Awesomely Chocolate, dark bitter chocolate.

Waffle with Tira-miss-u (Connoisseur Range) and Earl Grey (Classic Range) $9.20

Tira-miss-u, a combination of mascapone cheese, brandy  and cognac. Has the highest liqueur content among all the ice creams. Earl Grey, very intense earl grey after taste.

You can sample all the flavours before ordering the one you like. Udders’s flavours are so unique and special. Certainty a place to come to for dessert. Both Udders and Tom Palette are among my favourites, both are home-made, fresh and natural. The main difference I would say is that Udders sells liqueur ice cream. Currently, there are 5 Udders outlets.

Warong Nasi Pariaman

Warong Nasi Pariaman is located at the junction of North Bridge Road and Kandahar Street, at a shopouse at 738 North Bridge Road. It is near the Sultan Mosque. It is one of the oldest nasi padang stall in Singapore, starting its busines in 1948! (thats way way older than me). Nasi Padang is similar to what the chinese know as zi char or economic rice. In addition, Nasi Padang food are know for being cooked with lots of spices, lemon grass, coconut, lime and chilli.

Having such a long history, the stall has a huge loyal customer base. Although there was limited sitting capacity, most people also order takeaway. Judge the queue for yourself this is the takeaway queue. The place was packed when we went over during lunch time.

First visit

This was what we ate during our first visit here.

Second Visit

Third Visit

The food was so delicious that we ate here for the 2nd consecutive working day.

Begedils

Inside the Begedil

Begedils is the malay name for potato patties. One begedil  for each of us. Can’t help that I am crazy about potato, the begedil was delicious and spring onion is a must for this. The Little Teochew Blog has a post on how to cook this.

Ayam Bakar

Ayam Bakar is a must eat at this stall. Ayam Bakar consist of grilled chicken served in a mildly spicy thick coconut milk gravy also know as korma gravy. The chicken is first cooked in the gravy. It is then grilled. Just before serving, gravy is poured over the chicken.

The ayam bakar was sedap(delicious in Malay)! The meat was soft and tender despite being grilled. And the grilling gave different textures to the chicken, crispy on the outside and soft inside. The gravy packed a punch of oomph compliment the chicken and even with rice.

Sambal Goreng

Another signature dish of Warong Nasi Pariaman is the Sambal Goreng. Sambal Goreng is a mixture of long bean, tempeh and fried beancurb. Almost every table had this! Very addictive!

Egg Omelette

Egg Omelette was delicious but it was quite oily.

Mutton Redang

Mutton Redang was soft and tender. Although it was not a signature dish, it would still have been a hit at any other shops. The food here is just too good that the limelight has been cannibalised by other dishes.

Curry Gravy

Teh Tarik

Nothing like a cup of Teh Tarik to end the meal on a good note.

If you are looking for authentic Malay food that packs a punch, Warong Nasi Pariaman is the place to go. Sedap! Their signature dishes are  Ayam Bakar, Sambal Goreng, Ikan Bakar and Beef Redang. Besides being delicious, it is relatively cheap. Cheap and delicious, what more can anyone ask for. Clearly, it is a die die must try place.

Yomenya Goemon Japanese Spaghetti House

Yomenya Goemon Japanese Spaghetti House is a Japanese food outlet that sells only spaghetti cooked the Japanese way! In addition, you get to eat your spaghetti with chopsticks! It is located at the new Marina Bay Link Mall. The nearest MRT station is Raffles MRT station near exit I.

Half & Half Set Menu

Set Lunch Menu

Both of us ordered the Set Lunch Menu. She ordered Set C whie I ordered Set A. Her choice of spaghetti was ‘Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses’ while mine was ‘Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup (Spaghetti with Fresh Seafood)’. Both would have cost $13.50 each if ordered as a la carte.

Salad Bar

For each set, only one serving from the salad bar is allowed. Look at the variety.

I am such a typical Singaporean, my bowl was filled to the brim after my trip to the salad bar.

Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup (Spaghetti with Fresh Seafood)

We were told the Mediterranean Tomato Cream Soup was their top best seller. True, to the recommendation of the staff, it was delicious! This is a cream based pasta. It was not very creamy, hence eating was enjoyable even till the end.The seafood was very fresh. No wonder it is their best seller. Certainty something to try.

Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses

Smoked Chicken & Four Cheeses another cream based pasta. It was too creamy, otherwise would certainty be another dish that would be a hit among foodies.

Soup

Soup that comes with the set.

Dessert Menu

Chocolate Cake with Cookie & Ice Cream would have cost $6.00 if it did not come along with the set. The cookie and ice cream were just average. But the chocolate cake was the star. Do give it a try!

Overall, i would definitely come back and try the other spaghetti again. Yummy! Moreover, the portion per serving was huge. If you are a small eater, you could order the half & half set and share with a friend. They are opening a 2nd outlet at Katong Mall somewhere in August this year. Wish that their 3rd can be situated at a more convenient location, such as Woodlands or Yishun.
