Ministry of Food #3
#B1-40, Suntec City Mall
6338 5523

Since Hui Yi and I were still full from our late lunch and only wanted desserts, Yee Hwee and Yong Huat chose MOF over Crystal Jade for dinner. The Salmon Cutlet Maki ($9.20++) wasn't nice at all. Too much rice was wrapped around the deep fried salmon cutlet which seemed to have more batter than fish.

Yee Hwee ordered the Yasai Nabeyaki Udon ($14.50++) with mixed vegetable tempura. The girl didn't know how to break the egg into the claypot, so it was Yong Huat to the rescue!

The Katsu Toji Set ($18.80++) included deep fried breaded pork cooked in egg sauce and Japanese fried chicken.

Dessert time! Hui Yi and I waited for the both of them to finish their mains before ordering desserts. We shared the Macha Mixed Imo ($6.80++) and topped up another $2.50++ for an additional scope of Hokkaido Black Sesame Gelato. I love the marriage between the hot and deep fried sweet potato and yam, and the cold milk base soft serve and gelato! The red bean paste was also oishi as it was not cloyingly sweet.

The Black Sesame Mixed Imo ($6.80++) was similar but instead of the green tea sauce and red bean paste, the soft serve was drenched in black sesame paste.

MOF card members with DBS card get 15% off the total bill which was quite a good deal. I think this is a good place to get good and simple desserts rather than mains. It seemed that MOF is quite popular as the place was packed with people by the time we left.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
