Where: Orchard Road
What: Shopping Mall
The only place that I can truly remember about Singapore besides Sentosa is Orchard Road.
I remember how I once walked along Orchard Road which was filled with fairy lights and christmas decoration, bringing the entire christmas spirit alive.
Christmas decoration at Orchard Road is one of the many things which I really look forward to during my trip to Singapore.
We headed down to Orchard Road on Sunday morning and I must say I was a little disappointed.
Perhaps it was day time or perhaps the decoration this year weren’t as extravagant.
Fatty tried driving into Orchard Road at night just to let me see the christmas decoration but those lights weren’t even on. :(
Maybe it’s a go green thing. :(
Our first stop at Orchard Road was at Shaw House because I wanted to get my Mos Burger fix!
I’ve heard from Singaporeans that Mos Burger tastes really good and I missed my chance to try it once when I was at Bangkok.
Almost became my regret of the year!
In addition to that, having Fatty told me how delicious it was when he ate it at Japan just made me crave for it even more.
So I kept telling Fatty that I have to eat my Mos Burger no matter how.
Mos Burger’s portion is a little small so if you’re a big eater, you definitely need two to fill you up.
Price wise, it isn’t cheap for a burger with that size but then again you cant go wrong with wagyu beef.
I swear Mos Burger’s Wagyu Cheeseburger is so much better than Mc Donald’s beef burger.
We took a walk after our sinful burger from Shaw House to Takashimaya, the only shopping mall I remember because of it’s Japanese name.
#6 Saw this cute grandpa performing giddily and I stood there for a while to watch while the two boys ignored me. Really very cute grandpa but poor him, doing stunts on a Sunday. Shouldn’t he be resting at home? :(
#11 Fatty bought ten sticks for about $15. I dare say this is the best yakitori I’ve ever tried and it tasted so much better compared to Japanese restaurant even. The sauce was good and I especially love the burnt crisp on each piece of meat.
Fatty and I went back to Orchard Road again the next day after Dennis left for his flight back to Sabah to walk around for a bit.
First off, it was such a waste to combine beef carpaccio with cheese potato balls as the taste doesn’t blends at all. I’d say it didn’t worth the $12 that we paid.
As for Salmon Don, the amount of salmon given was generous and the cut was thick.
However, service at Tanuki was rather bad seeing that we were the only customers at that moment.
I needed to remind them that I do not have any cutlery for my Salmon Don and it took them quite some while to get it for me.
Fatty thinks that I am demanding but I think that it is my right as a customer to demand.
I mean, I didn’t ask for the waiter to lap dance on me or something but isn’t it the most basic service to get ready your customer’s cutlery once they order?
You can do that if I’m at a hawker stall but not when I pay a frigging RM50 for my bowl of Salmon Don.
MUST GIVE ME MY CUTLERY RIGHT AWAY! PFFT!
Oklah I forgive the waiter because he looks like he just finished his secondary school and this is his first job but after telling a higher ranking waitress, I still have to remind for a second time.
I GIVE YOU ONE CHANCE ALREADY, WHY YOU LIKE THAT!?
I get very agitated at bad services. I don’t mind mistakes because mistakes and bad services are different.
Don’t you agree?
So unless you hear better reviews about Tanuki from the near future, you might want to reconsider.
Tons of other Japanese restaurants nearby anyway.
