Kinton Ramen

Wow, it's been forever since my last post..apologies. My life is just not that interesting -___-

Anyway, Kinton Ramen (from the makers of Guu) opened up last month and so ever since then I really wanted to go.  Well, I finally went yesterday and I knew coming to this place I would be expected to wait a while. We ended up waiting around 40 minutes.

I forgot to take a picture of the restaurant ><, but here's the menu. Small selection - I got the Cheese ramen (yumz)

You can see the place is pretty narrow. We sat at a long table near the window which is also shared by others.  If I ever go next time, I'd like to sit by the open kitchen where you can watch the chefs cook your noodles :).

Top left is what I had - Cheese ramen, and yes that is a crap load of swiss cheese you see next to the pork belly. Pork belly was tender so I like :).  The broth was a little salty imo, but still okay.

Top right is the shoyu ramen with pork shoulder. My friend added extra seaweed to hers (note: it cost $1 more for the seaweed)

Bottom - Karaage spicy fried chicken, this wasn't bad :). The fried chicken is mild spicy so perfect for those who can't really eat spicy food.

Our bill was put in a little bamboo basket - so cute!

Total was a little bit under $30 with tax excluding tip.

Would I come back again? Yes, I'm not a picky eater and I don't mind waiting under an hour. Plus I want to sit by the open kitchen to watch where all the actions happen :). Hopefully by then, they'll have their liquor license so I can have a drink (or two).

Winterlicious 2012

It's that time of year again...Winterlicious where many restaurants offer a fix-priced menu. This year my friends and I went to Fred's Not Here. We had wanted to go for the longest time ever and we just never went! So this year we were set on going to Fred's Not Here.

Appetizer: Grilled eggplant
Main: Linguine with lobster tail
Dessert: Tiramisu

I found the overall meal was good, especially the main..the linguine was a bit spicy which was nice! However, I found the tiramisu average I'm guessing it could be store bought. Funny thing I noticed was that it seemed the restaurant was full of Asians haha xP - all taking pictures of their food of course (that also includes us lol)

Look at the cute portrait of the little puppy, I had to take a picture of it..I wonder if it's Fred's puppy haha.

This dinner was one of DL's last before she left for China to teach for half an year :(.

The second restaurant I visited for Winterlicious was at Cafe California. I highly recommend this restaurant! their food was SO good and apparently their homemade chocolate cake is to die for says LD. But too bad it wasn't on their winterlicious I'll be sure to come back for that cake haha.

Appetizer: Calamari (delish!)
Main: filet with vegetables
Dessert: Chocolate mousse cake

TN, LD and I had a pitcher of their Mama's sangria, it was pretty strong because at the end of the dinner..I felt tipsy and tired and I just wanted to go to sleep -__-.
