R Burger @ Ion Orchard

Ok... this is another novelty food product brought into Singapore.  As a typical Singaporean, I would also like to have a taste of this since this is one of the food kiosks that brought in quite a lot of excitement in Ion Orchard.  Read some reviews saying that the mantou standard is not quite consistent.  Sometimes too dry, sometimes too moist.  The one that I had is just right, I think.  Quite fluffy, but the presentation was not really very good.  As it was being wrapped up, the "skin" of the mantou as you can see from the picture, was a bit moist and looked quite wrinkled.  I will advise you to consume it as soon as possible, otherwise the whole thing may turn mushy. 
Side track a bit... I have always been a fan of avocado.  When I was young, we grew our own avocado tree (or plant?) and our avocado fruit was much much bigger than the avocado that you can find in NTUC.  Nowadays, we cannot find the big fleshy avocado in Singapore.  Sort of miss those days....
Back to this R Burger kiosk.  I ordered the avocado cheese burger.  To my disappointment, the avocado in the burger was really quite mashed up as seen in the photo.  Naturally, it doesn't taste like a avocado burger.  Of course, taste is always very subjective.  Sometimes, you have to try it yourselves before you know whether you like it or not.
Just read a review from ieatishootipost, think I will also like to try the Godzilla Da Pao recommended by ieatishootipost at Elias (Near to my place), only $3.80 :)

This claypot rice may not look appealing to you in this picture but it tasted better than it looked. Although they don't use dark soy sauce (in fact, they don't provide you dark soy sauce even when you ask for it), but this claypot rice is not bland at all. It was well-favoured and very fragrant. I found it less greasy too although lard oil was used here.
Claypot with Chinese sausage, preserved meat and liver sausage ($16.80)

This claypot liver didn't fail us as well. Very generous serving and the liver was very tender.
Claypot Liver ($9)

I would definitely love to come back again to try the other types of claypot dishes :)

Yummy Food at Old Airport Road FC

I saw a lady holding a small plate of mango sticky rice and I pointed this to my hubby. We were surprised to find mango sticky rice at a food centre in Singapore as normally, we can only find this in restaurants. (Of course, in Thailand, you can find them readily available at the streets or their food courts) After finding a seat at the crowded food centre, hubby went to order the food including this mango sticky rice :) It was yummy!
The oyster omelette was a bit too oily and we didn't manage to finish the whole plate.
The bak chor mee was quite good though I still prefer the one at Bedok North.
These are not ordinary fish balls. They are Fuzhou Fishballs, with minced meat inside.

Scotts Beef Noodles @ Food Opera, Ion Orchard

I ordered the mixed beef noodles (dry).  I presume this is one of the cheaper food (at a price of $5) at Food Opera.  Hubby ordered Bak Kut Teh soup, with rice and preserved vegetables and all these cost him $11.50!
Ok.. back to this beef noodle stall.  The bowl of beef noodle had a good serving of thick noodles, sliced beef, brisket, tendon and beef balls (got 3!) :)  I was really really full after finishing this bowl of beef noodles. The gravy was very thick and the sliced beef was not tough.  Found out that this stall was quite famous when it was located at then Scotts Shopping Food Centre.

Quoted from
Stall No.15: Scotts Beef Noodles
There's no need to introduce this famous stall. Scotts Beef Noodles has been around for more than 60 years, since Kiang Kin Nam’s father started selling the Hainanese beef noodles from a tiny stall on Bain Street in the 1940s. Kiang subsequently moved the operation to a coffee shop across Odeon Cinema (currently the National Library), and then to the now-defunct Scotts Shopping Centre Food Court. Now the noodles are back across the road at Food Opera.
