Although I did not feel well, my father, sister Bella, her boyfriend Edmund & I went to support my brother and head over to my future sister-in-law’s hometown early yesterday morning for the weekend. We took the bus from Jalan Sultan at 8:30am but only arrived at Yong Peng close to 12pm due to the jam. I was so tired so I slept the entire journey there. When we finally reached, I was starving while waiting for my family members to buy the goodies from the store. When we finally met my future sister-in-law’s family, they welcomed us with open arms and brought us to Sunroast to have lunch.

Although this is my third time to Yong Peng, it is my first visit to Sunroast. My father came here with my sister last year and fell in love with the meat dishes here due to the freshness that he bagged it home. The first dish served the rice topped with sauce, which is very fragrant. The dishes that complemented the rice is roast pork and char siew (second picture), roast chicken (third picture), roasted duck (forth picture), tofu (fifth picture), xiao bai cai, egg and not forgetting the wanton soup to wash down the roasted taste of the meats. The meat with well-roasted and I love how crispy the roast pork is. I am not a fan of char siew but I enjoyed the sweet savory taste of it. Both the roast duck and roast chicken were so tender and juicy but I preferred the duck over the chicken. Since the food is this good, we are so excited to take the roast pork and tofu back to Singapore later.

There are many places that sell roast meats in Singapore but most of them are done in the factory and sent over to the store to sell. The ones served at Sunroast is nothing like that as it is charcoal roasted by the owner. The freshness of the meats is incomparable to the ones in Singapore. It is difficult to find such good roasted meats in Singapore so I would definitely be back in a heartbeat if I ever miss or crave for the food at Sunroast.
It was my mother’s birthday on two Thursdays ago and we decided to have lunch together last Sunday. My mum chose to celebrate her birthday at Nigiro Cafe so I made a reservation for 7 pax at 12pm the day before. It took awhile to look for the cafe as Suntec City is so big but we finally figured that you can reach there if you take the lift up to the sky garden as it is located before the glass door heading towards sky garden.

The cafe is located in the restaurant called Eat At Seven. There are many places to take outfit of the day pictures in the restaurant as there is a variety of backdrops. It took me awhile before I finally got to Nigiro Cafe as Eat At Seven is like a maze filled with seven chains of Japanese restaurant. As with some Japanese restaurants, it is very easy to order your food at Nigiro Cafe as all you have to do is grab the iPad on the table, choose the food you want to order, click on it and have your preference of beverage for an additional dollar if needed. Please note that it seems like the chef cooks one dish at a time as all our set lunches were not served at the same time. Instead, my Salmon Set Lunch was served first and the subsequent dishes were served after with a 15-20 minutes interval between each dish served. The food at Nigiro Cafe is not the best but decent and value for money. As you can see from the pictures above, the set lunch comprises of either rice or bread of your choice, the type of meat you choose, dried vegetables, an appetizer such as tofu, a small plate of salad, a small bowl of corn soup and a slice of watermelon. We also got the complimentary dessert by liking Nigiro Cafe’s Facebook page. The taste of the cake was not to my liking but thankfully each of us only had to take a bite of it as there are so many of us but only one cake. There is another promo by posting the food pictures at the Facebook page to get discount for the meal but it is only applicable during dinner time. We celebrated my mother’s birthday with Sam’s homebaked cake as depicted in the last picture. The table was quite messy as the servers did not clear the empty plates. The servers should be a little more organized when serving customers and noticing the tiny details that the customers have finish their meals and go ahead and start clearing it.
