Fukuichi Japanese Dining Restaurant @ Triple One Somerset

Lunch nowadays are usually eaten in front of my laptop as workload gets heavier towards the end of the year because of events planning. But more than everything else, I believe work-life balance is of utmost important. A successful career is not a parameter of one's worth in life. Though busy, I still enjoy clearing my annual leave by taking some afternoons off to go food indulging or at least try to leave the office during lunch hour for a decent meal. Clear the work, clear my head and fill up the tummy - I did all of that when I walked over to Triple One Somerset for a Japanese meal at Fukuichi Japanese Dining Restaurant.

Ala Carte Lunch Buffet at TungLok Seafood, Orchard Central

Any meals with family are always lovely, especially more so if it's a home-cooked one. My mum is a strong advocate of preparing our meals at home whenever she can, because she believes it's healthier, tastier and cheaper. That's the main reason why we seldom eat out and even if we do, there's only a few specific restaurants she will go to. So, I'm quite surprised when she agreed to my brother and sister-in-law's suggestion of going to TungLok Seafood at Orchard Central for their ala-carte lunch buffet. This visit marks our first family lunch there.

松發肉骨茶 Song Fa Bak Kut Teh ~ Teochew-Style Peppery Pork Ribs Soup Along New Bridge Road

When two people are craving for Bak Kut Teh, they made their way to satisfy their cravings, simple as that. Despite its very accessible location along New Bridge Road just opposite Clarke Quay mrt station, that was my very first time visiting 松發肉骨茶 Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, an eatery specializing in the Teochew-style pork ribs soup since 1969. Garlicky, hot and peppery, that's how I love it! Bak kut teh is especially comforting during rainy weather, but when craving strikes, it strikes. Even if it's hot and humid out there, bak kut teh can still be very enjoyable inside air-con comfort.

I actually visited Jamie's Italian twice within its opening week lol! The first visit was impromptu with Daniel, this second visit was prior arranged with Derrick, Nat and FC.

What was served up during the first visit was pleasant enough to make me wanna try the other items on their menu. This time round, I had the main courses of Angus Prime Rib and Pink Snapper which turned out to be utterly delicious! Absolutely worth every cent and calories!
