Check with them what is the daily special. Be warned of the spice used in the food here.

Luckily we did not arrived at 5.30pm because it was not until almost 7pm when people starts streaming to the rooftop seating area. Apparently there is an indoor dining place but we only found out at the end of our meal. The open-air concept was cosy and conviv…

WALA WALA @ Holland Village

Everytime i go to Holland Village, i enjoy strolling down the slope and enjoying the view of angmohs drinking at the restaurants and bars on both sides. But seldom do i have a chance to actually do the same. This time, i went with an intention to chill at one of the pubs/bars whichever you call it.
Wala Wala has been around for a long time, ever since i was in JC? Or even earlier than that. Honestly, when i was in AC, i never visited Holland V, clearly not attuned to the culture.

This time was no different, we had a hard time choosing our dishes from the wide variety in the menu. Luckily, there was dim sum so we only ordered 3 main dishes.

We always try to go for dishes which are either the restaurant's specialty or one which we have never tried before. The Eggplant with Kurobuta Pork in Black Bean sauce was surprisingly a huge portion. The eggplant was nicely displayed on the circumference with the tender pork, edamame and some black beans topped in the center. The sauce was tantalising indeed and we had to order some white rice to go with it. It was a little salty but i guess since it is black bean sauce, it is only normal for the dish to be slightly on the salty side. I will still recommend this dish because the overall dish was fabulous. The eggplant used were fresh and really soft. For those who …
