2nd Kitchen @ Balestier Road

We had a food outing with a few other food bloggers again. This time to a place called 2nd Kitchen on  Balestier Road. If you get lost, look for Value Hotel, it's on the ground floor of this hotel.

It's kind of small, with only a small section of it inside the building (ie air-conditioned). If you like to sit outdoors, then don't worry about seating. There's more seats outside.

The rest of the foodies did their homework. They know what's nice here. (I was lazy and only want to eat haha..)

One of the must try is their Fried Bee Hoon with Lala. 

The portion is a bit small for the 6 of us, but it was delicious though. A little salty which probably made it so tasty. You can see it's quite generous with the Lala (and also chinese cooking wine too!).

You like hor fun, then you will most probably like this Sliced Giant Garoupa Hor Fun. (Cooked wat tan hor style) It comes covered with egg sauce on top, so we got to dig the ingredients out to show you the contents. :-p

As salty as the dish above, but we like it!

This is Sambal Winged Beans. It was recommended by the service staff. He said they have their own farm (I think was in Kranji or something like that) and these are fresh from their farm.

The veggies sure are fresh and very spicy and delicious! If you are a rice person, order a bowl and I am sure you can finish this up in an instant!

This is the garoupa's "Photophores". Huh? What's that? Go 'bing' or 'google' to find out!

We looked at the menu and wondered what is nice, and the service staff recommended this. He said due to popular demand, they prepare more nowadays. Previously it was only available if you called to reserve it.

The soup looks very milky. You know why? It's because it is fish bones and scales that has been boiled till it disintegrated! I wonder how long they took to prepare this! There's ginseng in it as well! Try it if you like soup.

We also had another dish that's not available on the menu. They did not want to sell it to us. LOL. Only for their regular customers he said. They finally decide to serve it to us,  but I think I shall not post the photo here. :-)

But we wondered if it's because of the big cameras around the table. They decided to give us a dessert treat. We were served mochi with toasted desiccated coconut.

Each of us paid around $14.
We felt like eating more and went for more food elsewhere! (we are gluttons!)
