Rice & Fries @ Changi Road


We reckoned that we needed mouthwashing desserts after the nauseating lunch at Oishii Halal Buffet.

Our only nearby choice was Rice & Fries, along Changi Road. Apologies but only desserts are featured in this blog post because we had lunch somewhere else.


Latte @ $5.80


Crème Brûlée @ $8.80


Caramelized Banana w vanilla ice cream @ $5.80


Dark Chocolate Lava Cake w ice cream @ $9.80

You might want to check out their Facebook page as well. If I’m not mistaken, the restaurant is run by a family and it’s interactive whereby there’s a certain degree of intimacy between the owners (the husband and wife) and the customers which you will see from the photos uploaded to their Facebook page. It makes Rice & Fries more than a restaurant but a big family.

Besides offering to take us photos, she also friendly reminded us to tag them on Facebook.

Oishii Halal Buffet @ Jalan Masjid



Oishii Halal Buffet
Having bought the deal from deal.com.sg (thanks to Boon Kiat), each $12 voucher entitles everyone with their so-called "Unlimited Authentic Shabu Shabu + Ala Carte Buffet At Oishii Japanese Restaurant - Over 40 Items Including Beef, Chicken, Prawns, Squids, Mussel, Lalas & Sliced Fresh Fish With Tomyam, Ramen, Chicken Or Miso Soup Base".

Jason drove the Bukit Panjang-rians and it too us a while to find a suitable parking at the Kembangan Plaza basement car park along that narrow Jalan Masjid. It didn't seem to us that there's any Japanese-looking restaurant along that district.

Walking to the junction, staring at the restaurant sign, for a jiffy we thought we came to the wrong place.
Look at the picture on the right, it's really self-explanatory.
There's no way anyone could associate that with the image we had in our mind. Yes, and it's halal, so forget about pork.

Well, the interior does look different from the exterior, with a conveyor belt that is not serving sushi but raw ingredients that you throw into the steamboat. Well done!



Drinks are obviously made from syrup and taste awful.

There were 7 of us and we chose the ramen soup base which was pretty tasty probably due to MSG. Whatever we're entitled to were those ingredients which are to be cooked in the pot, plus cabbages and noodles.


And where's our shabu-shabu? LOL... what about shabby-shabby?

Describing the eating experience in Oishii Halal Buffet as 'exotic' is courteous. Otherwise, 'horrible'.
Good luck to the next batch of customers who have bought the deals but have yet to visit.

4th Nuffnang Cashout



Requested on 20 September 2014, and it's been a while since my last cashout in June 2014.
I think I've also been trying to hold slightly longer prior to cashing out for a higher cashout to processing fee ratio (but seriously, how much higher can it be, LOL).

And also I'm definitely looking forward to more CPUV campaigns.

My Cashout History
1st: $73.21 (Sep 2012)
2nd: $110.93 (Mar 2014)
3rd: $127.32 (Jun 2014)
4th: $145.67 (Nov 2014)
