    Went there for dinner during our stay at MBS. The buffet and last order for the ala carte ends at 1030pm. We didn't go for the buffet since it's already 930pm.

    The reception staff was polite, no fake accent and ask for our room number and my husband's first name and led us to a nicely and clean table. Not sure whether this is true, but we got the same waitress serving our everything during the dinner. My husband's was also addressed by his first name during the dinner. Which means the waitress got to remember which table belongs to which guest. Not sure whether this only apply to guests staying at the hotel though. Polite-ness every where, questions of our well being and how we liked our food. There wasn't a need to request for refill of iced water as our glasses were refilled quite promptly.

    Price, well, quite expected for MBS, $19 - $25 for main courses such as chicken rice, nasi goreng or laksa. $49 for stirloin steak. We ordered a Stirloin Steak, Lime Cheesecake and a coke and it came up to a whopping $79~ Luckily, the food quality is also quite standard... Steak succulent and to the mark when we requested for "medium well", a bit over marinated but still acceptable. Love the sorbet ice cream that came with the cheese cake. But the cake itself was too thick though. Not bad for an anniversary dinner but cannot visit too often, otherwise it will burn a hole in the pocket.

      Took Jetstar to Taiwan this year May. Price was $424 which wasn't what you will consider cheap. The usual complaints like cramped seats, no free meals, no entertainment and the too expensive coke. These are however, not of importance, hey~ its a budget airline, you can't expect too much.

      They currently have add-$18-for-more-leg-space-seats which are quite bo liao. If I'm a Daddy long legs then perhaps I'll take it, otherwise no point spending the money on a short flight.

      The only thing I have complaint about is the spoken English and Chinese on board. Even though its a budget airline but I do feel that passengers have a right to know the correct method of using the safety devices like life vest. With the don't-know-what-kind of accent the crew use, the incorrect pronounciation and the real muffled PA system, none of us really understood what they were explaining about.

      Cramped seats or not, safety is more important to me.

        Walking around the place with nothing much to choose for 3 hungry people's lunch, we finally walked into this shop(?) that did not look too catching but yet interesting.

        Decorated in a manner that is sure to look inviting to students, we do see a lot of polaroids from past visitors (with their faces doodled).

        As mentioned by the previous reviewers, you'll have to order and pay over the counter and wait for your number to be called. What we did not like was the hard to figure menu written in chalk above the counter and the noisy sound system which often interrupts our conversations.

        Looking at the menu, seems to be fusion kind of burger joint where we ordered the Katsu burger, Mushroom swiss burger where I changed the bun for their "fluffy~ garlic butter rice" True to the description, the rice was so fluffy~~~ I thought they put a hamster in my plate! (nah~~) I do feel the taste of garlic can come out more instead of being over taken by the smell of butter. Perhaps its the side effects of doing away with the buns, the meat patty tasted too salty. And it was quite strange to eat scattered mushroom, meat patty and rice together.

        Couldn't comment on the Katsu burger as I did not try it but my companion mentioned that the meat was "katsu" too much that it became too tough. He didn't like the idea of having the katsu between sesamed buns too.

        An additional compliment to Burger Shack was that, our order was late. Lolx~ how was that a compliment? Well, our number was called way after it should and the cashier had sent us complimentary ice cream voluntarily. (Note: We didn't even noticed our order was late -.-") Good customer service I would say.
        And so great tasting was their ice cream that we decided to be gluttony and ordered their brownie and apple pie. Brownie was a disappointment although it will be unfair of me to say that as its my personal preference towards crispy brownies and theirs was not. However, I do love the smell of the buttery crust and its texture of .. of ... pineapple tarts?

        It will not be a place I'll frequent since its rather out of my way. With its limited menu, it will be difficult to choose as a venue for gatherings nor for frequent dining (will get sick of the food).

          Was the first time that we order food as in food at MOF. The previous time we had desserts there. Since there were only 2 of us, we couldn't try much of their menu. I ordered the ever safe dish, chicken curry pasta. And I fell in love with it. Haha~ Simply because the curry was not like those in other Japanese restaurants. Their curry was not sweet. Getting tired from all the sweet and sama sama ingredients curry from other Jap restaurants, this was a nice change. The "chunks" of tender chicken with the pasta added marks to the dish and I never regretted ordering this.

          Dar ordered Chicken Teriyaki Pasta and incomparison, this dish is not as nice as the curry. Not sure whether its the chicken or the teriyaki sauce they used but there was a "fishy smell" to the dish that puts me off trying it after 1 bite.

          We got free drinks as we ordered pasta dishes. We chose ice lemon tea which we all agreed that it doesn't taste nice at all but the macha tea tasted great.. With me, dessert is of course a must. Haha.... I chose light soft serve that goes easy on my stomach and digestion. Of course the desserts came out satisfying as even the passive Dar persuaded me to sign for the MOF citizen card so that we will enjoy discounts and rebates the next time we visit. Its $10 for member fees and if you show your UOB card, the member fees reduces to $6 for 2 years.

            Tried this when we went for movie at iluma. As I've heard that its 100% fat free and suitable for lactose intolerant people. I'm lactose intolerant though not very serious, I still get diarroeas when I take milk items. In any case, the bright and cute small store at illuma caught our eyes when we came out of a restaurant after having an unsatisfying lunch.

            The number of types of toppings really amazed me. Toppings like pormegranate, nata de coco, pomelo and the various cereals which are not common in yogurt houses. Toppings were fresh and the yogurt soft, a tinee bit too strong of the "cultured" taste for me but besides that, its quite a great choice if you would like something different and light after meals.

            If you work near iluma, its even better as you get to taste different flavours of yogurt everyday, take fruits and healthy cultures~
