Malay Chinese Takeaway revisit – Hainan Chicken

Chicken rice! The chicken was served cold and was nice and tender. The chili wasn’t laced with enough ginger though. Quite nice.

Jazz City Milk Bar

After taking an extended hiatus, I’m back – and I’m all about Jazz City Milk Bar!

I visited today at lunch time, but was unlucky with timing after being seated soon after a large group of people. It definitely slowed things down, but our waiter was lovely.

Even more lovely was my BBQ beef burger with a side of sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and lightly salted. I was very impressed, after my super soggy “thrice cooked” chips from Neil Perry’s Burger Project last week (Neil, why would you put your name on something if it’s not good? Is that really a good idea?!).

I was enjoying my sweet potato fries (more “chips” really) so much that it took me a while to stop and get into my burger. When I got there I was still impressed! With a toasted bun (unlike Burger Project’s)… It was the same general bun (hamburger topped with sesame type) but a little larger and denser – definitely stood up to the filling and not becoming a soggy mess (ugh come on Neil Perry!) but the best part… It was a lovely mix of crisp, tasty bacon, a juicy patty, some token veggies that in no way detracted from the burger as a whole, a delicious smoky BBQ sauce and some fantastic sort of relish on the underside of the top bun.

It was really good.

Go try it.

Check out the lemon tart and the slide of Portugese custard tart I bought from Victoire!

Victoire makes lovely baked goods, a little on the expensive side (considering the size of some – look at that skinny little lemon tart!) but always delicious. Recommended.
