Crab bee hoon, baby squids, Dunkin Donuts and Nyarlathotep (BPAL) 
28th-May-2007 09:26 pm

I have never had crab been hoon soup before. It's sooooo divine!!!

Did I mention I have a love for these tiny crunchy deep-fried baby squids?

Oh yes yes YES! Dunkin Donuts FINALLY returns to Singapore. Via delivery only, but hell... I'm not going to be picky at this point, especially since they deliver to City Hall every Wednesday and Sunday. And best of all, NO QUEUES!!!
Mmmmmm... choc pudding... peanut butter jelly... boston kreme.....uuuuurgh...

I wore Nyarlathotep to work and its sweet scent really clung to me throughout the day. I only made 1 application before I headed out the door in the morning, so it's safe to say this is a strong scent. Unfortunately, it also makes me feel hungry. My tummy kept growling, cuz I didn't manage to get any breakfast and all that thick syrupy sweetness smell like something your teeth could really sink into.

Where? Where are you getting the crab bee hoon and the sotong? *eyes food with an eager air*

Dunkin Donuts is back in Singapore? Where in City Hall are they delivering? The last time I had them was years back when living overseas, and I still remember they tasted divine.

Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore's makan Mecca!

Yup yup, I have no idea, but I'm sooooo tempted to order and see if it's still the same Dunkin Donuts taste I remember. And if it is, yay! I don't need to fly to Jakarta or Bangkok for my donut fix.

For a moment I thought it was at Ang Mo Kio. Gosh looking at that crab bee hoon soup thing is making me super hungry now. Plus my fav food is crab!!!!!!!

Oops I realised the AMK one could be under the same owner/franchise as I did a google search on "Melben seafood" and I also found another address under Makansutra's site:

Blk 204, Serangoon Central
<-- is this the same as the one you went to?

The one at AMK is:

Melben Seafood
Blk 232 Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 #01-1222

The place we went to was called "Nomin Seafood Restaurant". I don't remember any place called Melben. Hmmmm... maybe should try it sometime.

eh, they're not going to have physical shops? this is so weird. i have to go mrt stations to collect donuts? D:

btw did you try the donuts at Raffles City? are they really worth the wait?

and oh, i highly recommend black pepper crab with beehoon! :D~

I tried the Raffles City donuts, and I actually don't find them worth the wait. I guess they taste better than most of your average bakery donuts about. They're lighter and fluffier, and don't have this rancid greasy after taste most of them tend to leave. However, I don't think that its fantastic enough or valid a reason enough to qualify for queuing hours on end.

Apparently, I'm certainly tempted, since I work around the corner from City Hall.

And no, I haven't tried it. The queue is madness! Much rather go queue for Subway for lunch and head straight home after work, then line up for their donuts.

Why on earth do you need to lose weight for? *looks at own flab*
30th-May-2007 08:32 am (UTC)
because my target weight was 60kg, which i almost hit, and then attachment-->christmas-->CNY-->attachment and now stress-filled school has made me eat so much that my weight has shot back up by a staggering 5kg. need to lose it. fast!!! D:!!!

30th-May-2007 12:59 am (UTC)
Apparently in every country except Singapore. But they have returned!

Isn't that funny. Here I am drooling over your awesome cusines and you're lost in thought over our Dunkin Donuts. :) Thats cool.

That's probably cuz our food is 'exotic' in your part of the world, whereas for us, a steak and mushroom pie (3") costs SGD5 (USD3.27).
