Notice how the noodles look like tang hoon? transparent and slimy, Chong couldn't stomach it..but I liked it that its very slippery!
They serve the dry noodles with a bowl of soup. And all of us had a small plate of white radish.
Lai Lai also serves other kinds of rice and noodles dishes but we just zoomed into the beef noodles, which they are famous for.
Nat ordered this instead of a drink and this was a really smooth and soft beancurd! Quite eggy - more so than the steamed milk egg from Ah Chew's. Its sweetness is enhanced by the red bean and I like this.
After a late dinner we then strolled over to Tom's Palette (Shaw Leisure Gallery, Level One). I've lost count of how many times I've conveniently ate around here so I can have an excuse to eat the icecream here!
This was Xueling's. The sniffing runny-nose girl couldnt taste anything and she could taste the Pistachio so you can figure how strong the Pistachio was that day. Even the Lavender couldnt be detected on the poor girl's radar - and I always thought Tom's Lavender was super strong. And I don't like Lavender! It's prob the only flavour I don't like at Tom's but thats cos I'm biased against it - the only time I'd eat Lavender is in the Bakerzin cake - Lavande or drinking it in teas.
Usually I'd go for a warm paste (like sesame/almond with Kelly the first time round and sesame/red bean with Xueling the second time round) but today I decided to be adventurous and.....it didn't pay off!! Hai the durian paste was totally diluted in the coconut milk (which seemed diluted as well) and there were thick chunks of bland yam inside this sweet soup..only saving grace was the numerous sago that was quite nice to munch on as we slurped up the dessert...and to think we ordered a large portion! It was their daily special - their other special for the day was also another durian dessert. Nat saw in the back of the kitchen that they weigh exactly the amount of durian puree to add into the dessert..how very mechanical!
We then adjourned to Cineleisure intending to catch He's not that into you but no luck with the timings so we ended up catching up till the wee hours of the morning munching on the Cheese fries from KFC (no pictures for you to drool all over). Comfort junk food, interesting eclectic mix of young punks (there was totally attitude punkish girl in a long skirt super interesting) and sweet old couples suppering at KFC - totally unabashed about hanging out at Cineleisure at their age! Okay I'm not ageist - I'd wanna still do that at that ripe old age, wiping out whatever arteries I've left =)
