3 Fridays ago I took leave to go Christmas shopping with my mum, aunt and cousins! It’s sort of like a yearly tradition every year. The whole day was practically spent eating, shopping, eating and more eating…
We visited Itacho Sushi for lunch. My first time dining there cos I don’t usually like to queue for my food and I don’t know why the queues are always SO LONG??
While waiting for our turn to go in!
There were set meals available from $9.90 which was pretty affordable. I had the Chicken Don ($9.90)
I think this is the Unagi Don? ($12)
There were a few special deals going on at 20-50% discount which was pretty worth it! (The rest of the sushi were like $4.80 per piece?!) My aunt recommended this Salmon with Soy Sauce which was a little too raw for my liking.. But it’s only like $0.40 a piece??
Grilled eel which was pretty good! Think this was on discount too.
Roasted Egg with Seaweed & Crab ($3.80) & Roasted Egg with Spicy Salmon ($3.40)
In my opinion, the food was over-hyped. If the place was empty I wouldn’t mind eating it again but no way would I queue again to go in.

After shopping a little, we found ourselves having tea break at Four Fingers. Our first times trying out the place as well and we were actually looking forward to it after all that hype! I’ve never stepped foot in there before because it’s like forever crowded.
They’ve 2 types of sauces: Original & Spicy. You can ask for either one or a mix. We got the drumstick set instead of the drumlets because it looks bigger. Taste wise was not bad but it gets a little salty after finishing the second piece.
The fries come with Seaweed or Kimchi seasoning! But flavour wise I actually prefer Mcdonalds’ Shaker Fries. Their fries texture and flavour wasn’t very good in my opinion.
Overall, the meal was pretty disappointing after all that hype. Well, this is something you should try just once in your life and maybe that’s it. And hey, it isn’t very cheap ok!

Our dinner was at Paradise Dynasty, which was best-known for their colourful Xiao Long Baos. Thank goodness we didn’t have to queue to get into this because we were there before the dinner crowd came in.
Normal Xiao Long Bao.
Crab Meat Xiao Long Bao. We weren’t really interested in the weird colourful flavours so we ended up getting something on the safer side.
Some sour and spicy noodles.
So tired and bloated after all the walking and eating.
We saw 2 guys who were dressed in Spiderman costumes. My brother and cousin wanted to take a pic with them but I’ve no idea why they ended up doing a group hug. Such a hilarious sight.
T who came down to find me after work!!
So nice to be spending a full day with all my relatives! Had a really eventful weekend that week which I hope I’ve time to blog about it soon!!
