Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun 港式猪肠粉 (Upper Serangoon Road)

Hong Kong Style Chee Cheong Fun 港式猪肠粉 is located at Mee Sek Food Court along Upper Serangoon Road (5 minutes from Kovan MRT station). This stall is located in the same place as the famous Punggol Nasi Lemak. I was actually having dinner eating my Fried Hokkien Mee from Yi Ji Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodles 福建炒虾面 when I noticed this stall. 
What caught my eye was that each piece of Chee Chong Fun was freshly made upon order, the traditional way (using a cloth)! Not factory made! In addition, other than having having Char Siew or Prawns fillings, they had unique fillings such as Mushrooms or Chicken. Apparently, the stall has been operating for more than 30 years. 
Mushroom Chee Cheong Fun $2.50
Hence, after gorging 1 plate of Fried Hokkien Mee, I ordered a plate of Mushroom Chee Cheong Fun $2.50.

Soy sauce and sesame seeds were added over the Chee Cheong Fun. From the taste of it, I believe that a little sesame oil was added with the soy sauce resulting the extra flavour in the sauce. The rice rolls were thin and the slices of mushroom were fragrant. The chilli at the side was terrible. Dry, not fragrant and a little spicy, it was not my 'cup of tea'. Overall, it was quite a decent plate of Chee Cheong Fun, but its not the best.

Original Sin (Holland Village)

Original Sin is a Mediterranean Vegetarian restaurant located at Chip Bee Gardens less than 2 minutes walk from Holland Village MRT (exit A) station. The restaurant offers both alfresco and indoor (air-conditioned) dining. As we made reservations, we decided to sit indoors as the weather was scorching hot these days. In addition, we did not want to feed the mosquitoes. 

We visited during lunch time on a Saturday. During lunch hours, they had Set Lunch available during lunch hours. The set lunch consist of a Starter (choice of Soup of the Day/Green Salad), Mains and Dessert at $26. All of us ordered the set lunch. 
Minestrone Soup (Soup of the Day)
Most of us including myself ordered chose the Soup of the Day as our Starter. The Soup of the Day was Minestrone Soup. The soup was full of ingredients such as carrot, cabbage, tomato, spaghetti, etc. The soup itself was not well balanced in taste, I felt that it was a tad too sour and something seems to be lacking. 
Green Salad
A friend of mine ordered the Green Salad.
For mains, I ordered Spaghetti which was cooked with zucchini, olive, cherry tomato, tossed in tomato basil sauce and parmesan cheese. The chef executed this dish quite well. What was lacking was that they could have been more generous with some of the ingredients such as zucchini.  
Tofu Burger
My friend ordered the Tofu Burger which was served with wedges and salad greens. This was a hit among us; in a league of its own. 
Tofu Burger
The Tofu Burger consisting of tofu and lentil pattie was surprisingly tasty. Although the patty was soft and crumbled easily, we love it! The potato wedges which came with potato skin was also nicely done. In addition, the entire dish was not soggy. 
Mediterranean Wrap
The Mediterranean Wrap which was essentially tortilla wrap filled with chickpea and pumpkin spread, grilled eggplant, feta and salad was a dish which most of us did not appreciate. The main reason was because we were not a fan of chickpea which had a unique taste and smell.
Warm Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream
For desserts, we had Warm Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream. The chocolate cake was a tad too dry. The molten dark chocolate that flowed out from the centre of the cake was rich and dense. It was so good that it made the chocolate cake seems inferior.

The set lunch made the meal more affordable compared to the ala carte menu. However, one should still note that even with the set lunch, at $26++, this is not exactly cheap. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable meal.
