Korean on Amoy Street and the return to Swensen’s

My friend Joyce has been really sick with a upper respiratory tract infection but she was feeling a bit better so wanted to join us to try some Korean ja jang mien. Ron’s classmate recommended this Korean – Chinese Restaurant on 76 Amoy Street. He took us there and we were lucky to have him there to order for us.

We tried two seafood dishes, a seafood soup with noodles, and the ja jang mien. The guys also tried some Chinese wine, they translated to me from Chinese to be “Confucius family’s wine”… it smelled really really strong and “burns” inside your mouth.

This is the ja jang mien. It was delicious.

We were thoroughly stuffed but they still served us with watermelon slices and candied yams. The restaurant closes at 10pm but we were there until almost 10:30… we felt a bit bad because we were still finishing our meal when they had already finished cleaning up outside and were ready to go home. Oops…

But I think it’s a good place o try, their hours are 11:30pm to 2:30pm for lunch and 5:30pm to 10pm for dinner. They speak Chinese and English also.

Although we were stuffed, we decided to go to Swensen’s. Yesterday night when we went to dinner there, I saw they serve chocolate fondue and I promised Joyce that if she felt better that we would go have chocolate fondue! Alex joined us too.

We tried the Swensen’s at Chinatown Point but it was already closing but there are three Swensen’s open 24 hours: Changi Airport, Holland Village, and Orchard Rd. Orchard was the closest so we grabbed a taxi to head over there.

This particular Swensen’s always has a line out front but the wait isn’t really long… there were maybe 3 or 4 parties in front of us and it only look us like 10 or 15 minutes to wait. The service was a bit slow though, we were able to order quickly enough but it took a while for the banana splits and fondue to come out.

But it was worth the wait… the chocolate fondue was served with five scoops of ice cream, maraschino cherries, bananas, strawberries, wafer cookies, marshmallows, and cream puffs. Very yummy.
