[F.T] TAMPINES 1 - T1FOODIE PART ONE

Since I have been staying in Pasir Ris since the day I was born, I am not unfamiliar to my neighbouring estates like Tampines estate. I would love to visit Tampines when ever I can ever since there are 3 malls now located conveniently near the MRT Station. My particular favourite has to be Tampines 1, because it has more shopping and dining options for me to choose from. 

STOP 1: LENAS - #03-K1/K2 (6783 6338)
LENAS. the hip and eponymous American Italian restaurant named after its passionate founder is the current place to be at with their vast menu, trendy decor, bustling atmosphere and daily promotions. Catering to everyone with their massive menu selections and affordable prices, it is a fantastic place to hold family gatherings.
Ice Mint Lemon Tea - $5.00 (Without Ice Cream)
LENAS serves up a wide variety of food, from Salad to Pasta to Pizza and there are also japanese style dishes such as tonkatsu with rice and more!
Their Salad is generous with their cheese and greens. With the dressing on the side, you can choose to pour it over your salad or not.
Black Pepper Smoked Duck Salad - $10.90

Their Grilled Chicken Salad is one of the best I've had. The Tender pieces of chicken on the fresh and crispy bed of greens made it such a delight to enjoy. The Chicken was marinated to perfection, not too salty and not too bland even with the dressing over it.
Grilled Chicken Salad - $10.90

Their Bruchetta is worth a try, although they do not serve up what you see below (mixed bruchetta) , each and every flavour is unique on their own, Mushroom lovers please go for the smoked duck and mushroom one! But I personally love the Parma Ham one! :)
Mix Bruchetta (not available on the menu for the mix but available in Individual flavours)

Mix Seafood Spagetti - $15.90

This dish, Seemingly looking like a Japanese Katsudon but the rice separated, is the 1 dish I would go back to LENAS for! Tender pieces of Breaded Dory Fish covered in a delicious Egg Sauce and kept warm with a small fire accompanied with the Fragrant Garlic Rice, it almost felt like I'm eating a Katsudon!
Dory Fish in Egg Sauce - $15.80

Desserts are something not to be missed in my dining experience If my stomach space allows. LENAS's Ice Cream Parfait looks beautiful and taste as good as it looks too! Topped with Marshmallows and Fruits, bottom covered with Cornflakes and a little bit of Chocolate Sauce, delightful.
Remember to try their Breaded banana brownie hot pan with Vanilla Ice Cream as well. It was wiped out quicker than anyone could imagine.
Mix Berry Sundae - $8.80

STOP 2: MOF @ Izakaya/ Ama Soy - #04-15 (6784 5156)
MOF@My Izakaya brings mass culture Japanese cuisine to greater heights with an aim to create a healthy, wholesome and charming dining experience. Emphasizing on no added MSG, chemicals, preservatives, artificial colourings or flavourings. Offerings includes a wide range of authentic Japanese Desserts, Sushi, Tempura to Japanese-influenced Hotstone Rice. 


Premium Matcha Powder Blended with Softserve and Milk, result? A Rich and Creamy Matcha Latte, but the matcha flavour is not strong, which I personally prefer and not too sweet.
Ice Matcha Latte - $5.50
Tofu Avocado Salad (L) - $10.00
Fresh Cuts of Yellow Fin. Tuna, Salmon, Scallops and more! The pictured portion (Large) is enough for 2-3 person to share but if you would like to devour it yourself, be our guest! :)
Sashimi Moriawase (L) - S$36.80

Served piping hot, drizzle with the special MOF Sauce to bring up the flavour meter! I love hotstone rice dishes because there will be charred pieces sticking to the bottom which are fragrant and crispy. And MOF Did a good job on their Hotstone Rice, with the generous amount of seaweed strips and unagi.
Unagi Hotstone Rice - $19.80

Seafood Cold Ramen -$13.80

With a Fantastic name like this Dragon Roll, It's hard not to think about it as a real treat to the diner. Crispy Fried Prawn that is fat and juicy, wrapped with sushi rice and topped with Avocado and Mango to bring out the fresh taste of the prawn. I could easily finish it off myself.
Mango & Avocado Dragon Roll - 14.80

SoftServe with Green Tea, Red bean and Fried Japanese Sweet Potato. Hot and Cold Pleasure all in one. The Red Beans Blew me away, it was cooked to perfect tenderness and the Fried Japanese Sweet Potato was so fluffy and fragrant! Paired with the soft serve that is drizzled with green tea, its a perfect combination!
Matcha Imo - $6.80

It was my first try at AmaSoy and I must say It was delicious. It's not like those normal traditional beancurd, but it is also not like the popular choice "Lao Ban" which i do not fancy. AmaSoy is smooth and the consistency of the pudding beancurd is just nice. The flavours do not taste artificial at all and most importantly is, IT CONTAINS COLLAGEN AND OMEGA 3!! Talk about beneficial food! :)
Caramel, Original, Matcha Ama Soy Beancurd

STOP 3: Fish & Co. - #04-11 (6260 0183)
At Fish & Co., fun people have been serving fun people great seafood and fun memories in a pan. Enjoy the freshest ocean catch, like our new Seafood Galore!, cooked in natural ingredients and wholesome, global flavours. You don't have to dive deep for the freshest catch or fun memories – just level 4 at Tampines One Fish & Co.
Grilled Peri Peri Chicken with Arctic Fish - $19.95

Fish & Co.'s impression to me is a place with affordable seafood, suitable for large group gatherings. Although their seafood may not be the freshest (from what I experience that day on the tasting), their service is commendable.
Seafood Bouillabaise


Fiery Peri-Peri Chicken Pizza

Seafood Platter filled to the brim with tons of seafood on a bed of fragrant paella rice. The supreme platter consist of king prawns with ebiko roe, scallops with homemade tomato sauce, prawn fritter, fried calamari, white fish and blue mussels, served with paella rice and chips, It's so good, it's A feast for the king!
