FREESTYLE TOUT (West End)


FREESTYLE TOUT (West End)
220 Melbourne Street
The ladies wanted dessert, so here we are at the very famous Freestyle Tout
I don't have to introduce the place
if you're new to this blog, go read the older entries
at http://leongmingen.blogspot.com/


Also in the restaurant - Feeona Chang and Family




Seriously I need a hair-cut + shave badly


A lil bit of Queensland
around $15
Their signature dish
Caramel brownie, macadamia nut ice-cream, caramel sauce, chocolate, strawberry
Very orgasmic, very sinful, very tasty
Gives you a floaty feeling everytime
No, there's no marijuana in the dish!

Return factor:
10/10

GREEN BAMBOO RESTAURANT (West End)


GREEN BAMBOO RESTAURANT
153 Boundary Street


Its a small restaurant along the stretch
that serves Chinese-Vietnamese cuisine
The dining area is pretty clean with one female staff
running the entire dining area
Ambience is pretty basic and simple
Some rattan art and a Buddha wood art


Washroom is located at the side-alley next to the restaurant
The path is flooded with nasty-looking water
No key entry, it doesn't look safe to me




Menu is stained and flimsy
Some of the pages were detached from it already




Yes, its been a long time
A lot of readers has commented that they wanna see more JESSY BESSY
So here she is! Save the picture and put as your wallpaper..
You do not get to choose who I want to dine with! ROAR!


Also, dining with me today - Roy..


..and Wei Minn


Naturally, people always judge a Vietnamese restaurant by its Beef Pho


Quail
Very tasty! Taste like chicken, only better!


The poor thing looks pretty cute too..


I think this is the Duck with Egg Noodle Soup
$11.90
Egg noodles (wanton mee noodles) in Duck stock
served with duck meat and baby bok choy


Vietnamese Pho Soup (combination)
$11.90
It comes with only rare beef/chicken or a combination of rare beef, beef ball and brisket
Personally, I find the soup much better than Happy Days, but the beef ball is too soft
I would rate it on par with AJ Vietnamese, except this one has a more spicy soup
Flat rice noodles are nicely cooked


The beansprouts and mint leaves
that comes with the noodle dishes - pretty generous


Steamed Dim Sims (4)
$6.50
These are our siew mai
Minced Pork with carrots
Pretty decent taste
Good presentation




Spicy Hue Style Pork and Beef Noodle Soup
$10.90
The ladies had this
Its thick vermicelli in beef stock
Said it wasn't spicy enough

Return Factor: 7/10
Other Remarks: Will not use the toilet for $10

KAFE MEZE (West End)


KAFE MEZE
56 Mollison Street


Its a Greek Tavern
so naturally - Mediterranean Cuisine
Expect lots of Olives, Cheese, Herbs , Pita Bread etc




Previously, we came here for coffee
The restaurant has a very nice little garden at the back
with lil scuptures - clean and welcoming


Service is excellent
We were served by a humourous male staff
(could be the owner)


Mykonos Salad (scallops with salad)
$13
The seasoning is fantastic, however scallops taste a lil bland
Suggest that they are most likely frozen


Ivy ordered the Vegetarian Souvlaki
$10


She said it was very tasty!

Return Factor:
7.5/10

CITY MALL INN (炳胜美食)


After my EHR3009 iHRM paper
lunch was at CITY MALL INN (炳胜美食)
245 Albert Street


The restaurant is kinda like a food court concept
but there's only one vendor


The menu is like our 煮炒 (Stir-fried) style
So you'll see dishes like Sweet-and-Sour Pork with Rice, Mongolian Beef with Rice etc


The restaurant is not packed
Pretty clean and service is quite good
Opens 7 days from 9.30am to 10.30pm


Errmm.. that is a soup spoon


I had Chicken and Vegetables
Its pretty good! Cost less than $10
Return Factor: 9/10

TUPPY'S (Kangaroo Point)


Post-recording lunch was at TUPPY'S
85 Deakin Street
Kangaroo Point


I find that I'm obliged to "stub-it-out"
in a proper bin - even in Brisbane


The staff were really friendly
as much as its just a small corner shop under Story Bridge
















K810i (Regina's)


Vegetarian Burger


Hamburger






Tempura Fish & Chips


Battered Fish & Chips


Oh yea.. Fish & Chips costs less than 10 bucks with chips
