Astons Prime @ Joo Chiat

Last Saturday, we celebrated Momo's dad's birthday with a dinner at Astons Prime. We have never been here and so we thought we could come all the way here to the 'East' to try it out.

Momo's parents said this place looked a bit like a place where they used to hang out when they were young, a place called the Emerald Hill Steakhouse at Emerald Hill. That was like 30 over years ago. hehe... Not that this place is old and dilapidated, in fact it is very clean and modern. It's the high partitions between diners that reminded them of Emerald Hill.

(Anyone in that age group can verify? hehe...)

Do you see Moses Lim posing there? LOL..

Momo had the Porterhouse Steak. Medium done, and she liked it, but looking at what the rest of us had, she thought ours were better. (Grass/veg/food always look greener/delicious on other people's plate right?)

Momo's mum had Battered Fish. It was two huge fish and she enjoyed it with the baked potato and veg.

Fish & Chips

Momo's dad has the Rib Eye Steak. he ordered the XL version.
His asked for brussels sprouts and onion rings for his sides. (never knew Momo's dad liked Brussel Sprouts! I don't like it. haha..) Medium done and it was not bad.

I had the Kurobuta Pork Chop. Had it 75% done. It was tender and juicy.
I could have more of it! I am such a pork person. :-)

The next photo is good news for those living in Central / South / West of Singapore. They are moving to The Centrepoint from 15 June 09.

Easties, eat it while you can... They are moving away.....

Dinner was nice. We liked the mains, all done just the way we ordered. The sides ok lah...

I was never at ease when I dine at my (late) MIL's place, every saturday. I was forewarned abt her precious utensils/silverwares/porcelain which r taken out specially for the occasion. I was so tense that I actually dropped a china tea cup n broke it. I thought then that I would be banned for life - haha.

Most meals in dutch homes r informal. I think my MIL just wanted the chance to display her collection.

When I hv the whole family over at our place for my hubby's b-day, I usually opt for the simplicity of curry chicken n french loaves. My PIL wouldnt touch it bec it's eaten with the fingers ! Makes u wonder how else they eat their daily bread lunches, doesnt it ?

Times when I served up a chinese meal, my MIL wouldnt want to eat it communally no matter how much my hubby encouraged her to join in the experience. To her, it's unhygienic. To us, having the dishes so quickly dispersed onto individual plates just dont hv the same coziness as one would hv when sharng it as a family. Dinner is always a silent affair. MIL doesnt allow talking when one is eating *sigh* And yes, eat with ur mouth closed, even if the soup is scalding ur tender tongue !

How abt this insight eh ?

omgwtfbbq! i just had dinner with the future in laws too last Sunday!

The Hungry Cow said...

Oh @#$%^&*. Aston's Prime moving?! Booooooo

But Centrepoint means I no longer need to psycho westies n northlings to come to the east. Not too bad a move. Hahaha. But hopefully price remains the same.

Btw the Moses Lim pic is hilarious! :D
