I'm seriously glad to have plenty of foodie friends. I cannot imagine going out with a bunch of people who'd only watch and not eat. Most of my friends love food as much as I do and that makes life so much more fun and tasty.
You know how it goes. Although usually I'm the one whetting their appetites by continuously raving about a said dish/place. At least I end up persuading them and most of the time, they don't regret! It's a great satisfaction, to see my friends enjoying the food I recommended. It's a happy feeling.
haha yes yes, I'm all about food. A friend just told me recently that she associates me with food and that's the first thing that comes to mind when she sees me. Right... but I don't think it's a bad thing. Not at all! After all, I have a food blog and I'm really crazy about food, so she can't be wrong about that can she?
So anyway, I met up with my participants from YISS (Youth in the Spirit Seminar - organised by Amplify Ministry) yesterday and we had a blast. We ate ALOT (well I know i did!) and had loads of fun. I brought them to Azabu Sabo, my current favourite Japanese restaurant.
I really wanted the chicken avocado salad but apparently they have a new menu and that dish isn't on it. But it was okay... I shared some seafood salad with Michelle. Yes.. I had a heavy lunch at a Chinese restaurant and couldn't stomach that much for dinner.. besides, we ordered that huge chocolate banana sundae which you see at the top of this post :)
Let me show you what everyone ate:
I recommended this ramen pancake thing (i think it's the okonomiyaki) to Sury and he loved it. Well he was hungry! He only ate 3 bananas the entire day.
Aloysius had the hamburger patty with cheese. I think I've eaten that once. It's super duper. The meat is fresh and oh-so-tender. Lovely.
He had it with plum rice, which complements it:
Ben had the chicken karrage. It looks good. I didn't try it but I suppose it tasted good as well? He didn't complain anyways. haha.
Cheryl Danielle(ya not me... another one) had some yakitori:
and I shared some mushroom dish with Sury. It's cooked in butter I think. It's yummy!
And this is the seafood salad Mich and I shared:
The prawns, scallop and cuttlefish were really fresh. I loved this salad. The dressing was really unique as well. It has a bit of a zing but it's not quite 100% wasabi. Hmmm it's amazing though!
What I love about this restaurant is the fact that they serve free flow green tea. I like their tea and it helps to wash everything down.
You should try their desserts as well. I'm a big fan of their green tea icecream. But Mich doesn't really like green tea so we got the chocolate banana sundae instead. It was good too.... They give you more chocolate sauce in a small pot for you to pour all over. The soft serve icecream was light and creamy. Me likes. I think all of them agreed that this place was worth a second visit. I can't wait to go back again.
After dinner, we headed down to Timbre to chill out. Everyone drank except Cheryl and I. I just couldn't! I was too full and bloated! Had a wonderful Soda Chanh from Baguette (the Viet deli at the basement of Raffles City Shopping Centre) when we were on our way to Timbre.
The guys & Mich had Heineken beers and I think Sury ordered Kahlua milk.. Sounds yum but I really couldn't stomach anything. Well that's also because we ordered more food at Timbre.
Pardon my dark blurry shots of the pizza and prawn palillo - it was too dark:
That's parma ham and cheese pizza. It totally rocks. It's thin crusted and pretty huge! I heard that Timbre's known for their pizzas and of course, live bands. EIC performs there every Wednesday. I'm so gonna go check them out. They're reeeeeally good.
This prawn dish is amazing. They stuff it with bacon bits and cheese. Sinful but worth the guilt! :)
So there you have it, a delicious, sinful evening of good food, great company oh and good music by the cool singer Michael who belted tune after tune for us patrons at Timbre. He has a deep husky voice that's great for emo songs.. hahaa and Cheryl Danielle thinks so too!
Hey babes and dudes from my YISS group Endless, if you're reading this, I love ya'll. You're an amazing bunch and last night was great fun :D
