The interior attracted me much. Its painted and decorated with vibrant colours which make the whole ambiance very alive. The artsy-fartsy designs and wall graffiti makes the gastropub a gallery.

Manster Burger *beef ($17.90), served with bacon, egg, caramalized onions, cheese fresh greens and fries.  photo DSC_0613_zpsldtzjsqe.jpg

One of Old Boys Gallery’s signature is their Bah kwa Risotto. Yup, it may sound different as the risotto blends into a Chinese cuisine but the difference turns it into a unique and yummy signature.

To all the burger lovers out there, Old Boys Gallery offers Belly Good Burger ($18.90). This is such a promising burger! At a glimpse its indeed fattening, but when you sink your teeth into this stack of burger (which consist of pineapple, bacon, onion ring, sunny side up, melted cheese, fresh vegetables and …. braised pork belly!) you will just forget about diet. Its a juicy combination and rich in flavours.

When spam fries are too mainstream, OBG serves SPAM CHIPS ($9.00).

Aside from spam chips, Old Boys Gallery serves Chilli Beef Fries ($13.90). The chilli beef fries consist of chilli beef with kidney beans, fries topped with nacho cheese, mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese. Yumz!

… and my ultimate choice is Potato Head ($7.90) ; sweet potato fries with curry mustard dip! Simply awesome! photo DSC_0629_zpsgc9ojrs5.jpg photo DSC_0632_zpsklsrwi82.jpg

OBG Wings taste pretty good too! It brings back a lot of child hood memories just cuz the wings are marinated in MARMITE! Madly in love with their wings! Well, its served in 3pcs or 6pcs.

On top of all, here comes the highlight of the day. DESSERTS, easing all sweet tooth since ever! OBG serves three types of desserts. Earl Grey Cake with Lavender cake ($7.90) is one of classic signature.

Salmon Sushi with Onion photo DSC_1394_zpssmkduenk.jpg

One of my favourite, Salmon Mentai. The mentai used is yummy as most of the ingredients and condiments used by Sushi Mentai are imported from Japan.

Salmon Mentai Dragon Maki ($7.50) served creamy mentaiko with a slice of salmon slapped on top of the roll! photo DSC_1405_zpsnabvvurp.jpg photo DSC_1407_zpskmwzbgrn.jpg

Sake, anyone? There are a few types of sake available, and it all depends on your preference, be it strong or sweet. Me? I like this one.

Chirashi, serves fresh and value for money! photo DSC_1414_zpsyonboij0.jpg

Salmon Mentaiyaki served with two slices of grilled salmon coated with mentai sauce. Taste really awesome! photo DSC_1416_zpswnz4dtwy.jpg

Well, this ain’t a sashimi platter but you can turn them into one if you wish just like how I did! All you need to do is to request to combine your sashimi plates to a platter! You will be able to taste all freshness in every bite of the raw slices, knowing that satisfaction is ensured!

Every meals gotta end with something sweet, no? And I have a strong liking for Ocha ice cream. Here at Sushi Mentai serves two types, either the ocha ice cream or sorbet.

Chingay Parade Singapore 2016

My very first Chingay Parade in Singapore but I ended up all drenched. For those who had been to the Chingay Parade which kicked off on Friday night, with the theme “Lights of Legacy, Brighter Singapore”, had much fun in the rain. Although the weather was not on our side yet the crowd were not getting any smaller at the F1 Pit Building.

 photo IMG_6314_zpsrdwvie4z.jpg

After all, its all about the experience. The experience of watching the parade in a poncho. 😀

 photo IMG_6302_zpsfdzlbdqt.jpg

The Chingay Parade is a parade organized annually by the People’s Association with 8000 performers which includes 800 from overseas and here is one hailing from Indonesia.
