TODAI International Seafood & Sushi Buffet Restaurant

Image
When I first saw the mouthwatering food photo shots of Todai's offering (the new international seafood restaurant in Marina Bay Sands) from the news paper, I know from that instance that I was more than allured to visit the place. After a few visits from the other restaurants featuring seafood buffet such as Mandarin Oriental's Melt The World Cafe and Ritz Carlton's Green House and still left half-way satisfied, I am definitely on a hunt for something better. Hence, it was really good news when I heard about Todai's opening.





Todai in Singapore is the first franchise established in South East Asia. And it's addition to the Singapore food scene is undoubtedly another luscious gastronomic serving to the already spoiled Singapore diners. This up-scale "all you can eat" seafood and sushi restaurant offers a wide repertoire of scrumptious dishes. From the appetizers to the main course and desserts, the selection is really enormous albeit less if I would compare…

Grandma's Restaurant - A Taste of Home Cooking

Situated in the busy basement level of Paragon Shopping Centre is a restaurant that has a very interesting name - Grandma's. Looking at the facade and the ambiance of the resto, I already expected for foods that were cooked home-style. True enough, as I perused the menu my eyes feasted on popular local favorites such as nasi lemak, curry, sambal, rendang, kway teow, claypot dishes and a whole lot more. If you gone tired of indulging on local cuisine in a warm and humid open-air dining set-up, then this is a better alternative.


Food wise, it's actually satisfying. Serving size is just enough for whatever it calls for. Price varies depending on the dishes. Some can be regarded reasonable otherwise, overly priced for the quality you're offered. Suffice it to say, making the right choice is key.

McDonald's Chicken Mc Grill Burger

McDonald's MAKE IT 1 -FOR -1 promo yesterday, definitely created a pandemonium in all of its branches. Long queues were all over. The one day only promo was part of the "Make it Better" advocacy of the popular food chain. Likewise, to coincide with the new campaign, new food items were launched in the store. One of which is the Teppanyaki Chicken McGrill Burger. I was so intrigued with the nice food shot at the menu display that I did not restrain myself from trying it. On its packaging the burger was described as "Whole chicken thigh meat delicately seasoned in teppanyaki marinade, cooked to tender perfection and served with tomato, gourmet lettuce and home-style chargrill sauce between a sourdough bun".
Personally, I find it mildly flavored and is just right. It's not overpowering nor overwhelming for a burger. The sweetness of the marinade is also optimum hence, I don't find it satiating. The freshness of the lettuce and tomatoes is a must though. Ov…
