13 April 2012 (Friday)
Eat: Bonta’s Hook, Line & Sinker
Love fish? Then you won’t want to miss out on the lovely rainbow trout creations at Hook, Line & Sinker. We love the homemade rainbow trout ravioli, served with Mediterranean scampi and basil oil – the pasta is al dente and has a wonderfully buttery flavour. Other yummy dishes include the rainbow trout carpaccio and pan-roasted rainbow trout wrapped in crispy eggplant.

Who says all the good food is only in the east? Specialty tonkatsu (Japanese breaded pork) restaurant Ginza Bairin has set up shop in Jurong East! Apart from the succulent tonkatsu sandwiches that made them famous, check out new additions like the mini tonkatsu burger and tonkatsu nuggets.

Zesty and refreshing, this is the perfect drink for hot, sticky afternoons. Made from real apples, it’s sweet but not cloyingly so. Get a pack of four bottles at just $16.80, available at all NTUC FairPrice outlets.
