Sun With Moon #1
#01-70/71/72, The Central @ Clarke Quay
6534 7784

The restaurant was fully packed with the 30% discount promotion going on and we could only get an outdoor table. Here are some of the food we ordered. The Mentai Potato Salmon Tsutsumi ($10.80++) had mashed potato with spicy pollock roe wrapped with smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was too salty and overwhelmed the other flavours. I couldn't taste the spicy roe at all.

The large portion of Soft Shell Crab Tempura ($10.80++) rightly justified its price tag. This was nicely deep fried with a thin batter and it was not too oily.

I requested for no mayonnaise on the Okonomiyaki ($12.80++) and it turned out to be too bland for the rest. There was ample amount of mixed seafood embedded in the pancake. Again, the portion was generous and good for sharing.

The signature dessert of Sun With Moon has to be the Tofu Cheese Cake ($5.50++) sitting prettily in a bird cage. Perhaps they were running out of bird cages that day as the waitress took away the cage as soon as she set the dessert on the table. This being a cheese cake, I didn't like it as the taste of cheese was still there even though it was quite mild.
The Goma Pudding ($5.50++) was my favourite for the day. The description "Homemade Black Sesame Pudding" had me visualising something akin to a normal gelatine based pudding but I was wrong. This is the least pudding-like pudding I've ever eaten. It's more like 2 slices of extremely soft tofu topped with black sesame paste. Excellent!

I bought the Matcha Tiramisu ($6++) to bring home since sis wanted it. The mascarpone cheese was too thick and creamy but the green tea cake was soft and moist. Perhaps it was not chilled by the time I reached home, I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would.

If for any reason I go back for a meal, it would be sorely for the desserts!

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!
