Oishii@Liang Court 2013: Wednesday Food Trails

Starting next week, Liang Court will be organizing a food trail every Wednesday till 7 August as part of its annual Oishii@Liang Court. From Tanyoto Sichuan Specialities to volcano ramen by the soon-to-be-open Tonkatsu Kazan, shoppers are treated to a variety of cuisine at Liang Court.

Sample of coupon

Just purchase the dining coupon at $30 from the Level 2 Customer Service Counter and you can enjoy meals at 3 different restaurants! A copy of the Food Trail Guide will be given after purchasing coupons.

At the media preview session, I went to 3 places, starting with Taiwan cuisine at Shin Yeh, a prestigious Taiwan restaurant under Tung Lok group in Singapore. We were surprised that a typical four-course set menu was already dished out right at the first pit stop.

The appetizer was a cold platter of oyster mushrooms with herbal sauce, poached savoury kampung chicken and chilled fresh bamboo shoots salad. I was glad that the chicken was something different from the drunken wine chicken dish and it went well with special dark soy sauce.

The next dish, Crisp-fried Prawn Rolls with Yam Paste, was my favourite dish of this set. A light, fragrant fritter of yam wrapping around small-sized prawn, that was not oil-logged or too starchy.

The classic comfort food, Lu Rou Fan (卤肉饭) was delicious too. Nearly every grain was coated with the mildly sweet brown stew sauce and the pork tasted more like meat floss. This looked just like any typical version one can find on Taiwan streets so it was a surprise to find it at this classy high-end restaurant.

Dessert was the signature Mango and Milk Shaved Ice made with 100% mango. I am not a mango lover but cleared everything easily as it was not too sweet. However, the mango taste is quite intense and thus one might thought this was chilled purée mango instead of ice.

If you head to Yayoiken, you would get this Nasu Miso & Hokke Set (up to $15.90) which contains stir fried pork and eggplant in miso and grilled mackerel. Every dish was tasty and the miso soup was not too salty. For those who are missing Japanese rice, here is a good place to get free refill of rice (if you still have space for more).

For those craving for desserts, Dulcet and Studio, the sister outlet of Tampopo, allows food trail participants to choose any 2 slices of cake and a regular coffee (up to $16.60) between 3-10pm.

Chocolate Marble Chiffon

Besides the signature scoop cake that is a fruity Japanese shortcake, their tall & fluffy chiffon cakes in various flavours are really worth trying too.


I wrote about the Cream Cheese chiffon previously and the quality is still good this time round. If you haven't try their cream puff ($2.60) yet, be sure to get one if you see them on the shelves as they usually run out very fast.

Overall, I believe this food trail offers a great opportunity to try out various restaurants at Liang Court and Japanese food lovers especially, should not miss this event. Do note that the first stop is a secret fixed place but you can pick the other two stops from any remaining 11 F& B shops on the list.
The 12 restaurants are:
  1. Dulcet & Studio #01-41
  2. Marutama Ramen #02-01
  3. Okinawan Diner Nirai-Kanai #B1-01

  12. Yayoiken Japanese Restaurant #B1-31/50 

Over 60 International Beers to Choose from
Before leaving, get your omiyage (souvenir) at Thirsty the Beer Shop, which is giving a free beer to every participant. Those under 18 will, of course, receive a non-alcoholic drink instead.

Sweet Fruit Beer (Peach flavour)...don't stare too long guys
I love the fruity beers such as the Peach and Framboise. But seasoned drinkers might prefer the bitter range.

Be sure to keep your stomachs empty for the feast or grab some friends to share the food (i.e. 2 persons can share the portion of food for a $30 set coupon). If you wish to find out about the food selection from Shakey's Pizza, Marutama Ramen and Saizeriya, do check out Ai Ling's blog. They looked really delicious to me!

This food trail is held every Wednesday from 17 July-7 August. Other concurrent activities include Japanese chef class, dessert workshop at Dulcet and Studio, Design Onigiri Contest (27th July) and children cooking workshops.
