Mini Pumpkin

Mini Pumpkin

Have you seen mini pumpkin before? Have you eaten mini pumpkin before? How do you cook the mini pumpkin?

Size. You can find these mini pumpkins from the supermarkets. Let’s compare the size of the mini pumpkin with a small packet of coconut milk. The mini pumpkin looks shorter and wider/fatter as compared to the small packet of coconut milk.

Cooked Pumpkin

How to cook it. So far, the only method that I know is to steam it. Cut the mini pumpkin into 4 smaller pieces and steam it. After steaming, the skin will be so soft that you can just bite it off.  Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.

Taste. The mini pumpkin tastes sweeter compared to the normal size pumpkin.

Next time when you go to supermarket, look out for this mini pumpkin. It wasn’t sold in all supermarkets.

Out of the Pan

Posted by icyelite on August 12, 2008

Out of the Pan serves mainly crepes and wonderful, beautiful, delicious desserts. They are located at City Hall, Raffles City Basement 1, beside the fountain.

Address: Raffles City Shopping Centre, 252 North Bridge Road, #B1-45 Singapore 179103
Tel: +65 6431 6103

The first time I went there with my ex-colleagues for dinner because we saw them the word vegetarian in their menu. However, I did not order any vegetarian crepes from them. Instead, I had ordered colorful frutti salad and desserts.

Colorful Fruitti Salad

Frutti salad. As the picture has shown above, it looks very colorful with a variety of fruits. Fruits that I can remember are strawberries, peaches, apples, watermelons, etc. Alot alot more. In addition to the fruits, there are lettuces too. Crunchy and tasty salad. For girls, most will feel that just having the salad, you are almost full. Probably you just need a cup of drink and you are satisfied for the dinner. Wow, sounds like a good diet plan? Fruitti salad costs SGD $8.

Chocolate Mania Chocolate Temptation

Desserts. I had tried Chocolate Mania and Chocolate Temptation before. Aren’t the designs of the desserts beautiful? They had desserts in crepes, waffles or just plain desserts.

  • Chocolate Mania has two rolls of bananas wrapped in chocolate-flavored crepe. On top of the crepe, it lies a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A combination of hot and cold with “rays of hot fudge sunlight”.
  • Chocolate Temptation has three different types of ice cream. Not very sure what are the different flavors, to me, it should be vanilla, chocolate and belgium chocolate. Adding some decorations, is a combination of colorful fruits. Haha, but the 2nd time I went to Out of the Pan with Andy, the fruits all tastes sour. >_<

Crepes. Ah, seems like I did not mention their main course at all. Haha, that is because I didn’t order any main course when I was there. Just the salad and dessert is enough to make me feel so full. They serve vegetarian crepes but I am not so sure of the sauces they use in the food. So, don’t order it, is my ideal solution. For what I know about the crepe is that you get to choose the type of flour you want to use for the crepe? Because the waiter will ask what type of crepe you want? Plain, Wheat or blah blah blah.

Mango Tango

Drinks. They serve soft drinks, coffee, ice blended drinks and juices. I ordered mango tango, it is a tall glass of ice blended mango juice. Its icy cold and sweet. *drooling* Best drink on a hot sunny day.

Set Meal. Their set meal is to order a drink, salad and a main course of crepes. Price for the set meal costs $20+++. If you are ordering the set meal, do inform the waiter/waitress first before telling them the food that you want. This is because I started telling him the food that I want when he came and he noted down. Until the time when I told him that I wanted to change my drink to mango tango, how much do I need to topup, then he realize that I’m actually ordering a set meal. Shakes head. The drinks that you can order are only soft drinks which already costs around $5.50, if you would like to have other drinks like ice blended juice, you can add on another $2 or $2.50 to the set meal price.

Prices. The prices are above average but when you get to enjoy the tasty salad and wonderful desserts, you will close one eye for the price you need to pay.

Design and Creativity of the food. I feel that the design and creativity of the food is excellent. Design and creativity scores high for the desserts. Looking at how wonderfully they had displayed the desserts, you will feel so happy and the food will look more delicious. Moreover, they had made the food looks more colorful and tasty to the customers.

Four Seasons Durian – Mini Durian Puffs

Posted by icyelite on August 10, 2008

For the past two weeks, Eastpoint has setup several foodstalls at the main lobby, level one in participation of Food Festival 2008.

Four Seasons is one of the foodstalls set up. They are selling their famous durian and the all time favorites of Singaporeans.

Four Seasons – Mini Durian Puffs

I bought 1 box of mini durian puffs back, it costs around $9 to $10 (can’t remember the exact price). The durian puff is just like eating a real durian. The taste and smell of the durian is very strong with an additional of mini puff to eat.

When you just buy it, it can last around 2 hours outside fridge temperature. If you are not going to eat it anyday soon, put it inside the freezer, it can last you longer for days or even weeks. Eating the durian is delicious, however, when you put inside the fridge and open the fridge, it will produce a “leaking gas” smell.

Mini durian puffs is not the only pastry that four seasons has created. They had made used of durian to make a variety of durian pastries. Buy one box of mini durian puffs back if you happen to see one.
