On the way to Dim Joy, Toons ran off to buy his Cheese Rasin bun and while he was MIAed for awhile, we waited in front of this durian store, Wacky took some pictures which he had posted earlier on. Saw this Ang Mo couple eating durian there too,.

Sixth stop - Dim Joy

Address:
80 Neil Road, Singapore 088842

Telephone:
(65) 62206986

Reservations:
reservations@dimjoy.com

Finally we made a slow walk to Dim Joy and to our horror, it's was still closed, they opens at 6pm. Having nowhere to go, we took a short walk to Maxwell Road Hwaker Center and had another round of drinks till about 6pm before proceeding back to Dim Joy.

On reaching there, all the aircon seats where fully booked from 7pm onward but since we were there at 6pm, we asked if we can stay till before 7pm and they agreed.




Durian Snow Pearls - We had expected it to be something like Tang Yuan but it's not to be. The outer coating is some "flour" like thing with durian flesh inside. We found it quite nice to our liking.



Golden Sand Glutinous Rice Balls with Osmanthus Soup - Does this look like rambutan to you? We like this except the Osmanthus Soup, only Toons and Kahlan's friend like the soup.

u got sit in the air con room to jiak ??
For Chew Kee, we sit in the next door shop which is supposed to be air-con. So raven, Not sure if i recall wrongly, you know the boss of one of the shop right? which one?

My most disappointed food was the mango pomelo, felt so cheated. It's not cheap and it's not nice. Rest of the food was good. Company was pleasant. Enjoyed myself. Although i ate too much and after seeing all the food, i feel so full now...

Vinegar Pork Trotter - It's just not fatty enough, in fact I didn't even see any skin, unless dennyz took all but he said he took only one piece. Too dried for my liking especially the hard boiled egg is so rubbery.



Claypot rice - Was told they used Basmati rice for this and you can see the individual rice grain for this dish.




Pork Knuckle or whatever left of it after we had gone through it.



BBQ Cuttlefish - This dish took a long time to be served due to it slow cooking time. A bit chewy but then it's quite good for a BBQ dish already.




Finally after almost 12 hours, we each went our separate way home but it was an eventful and worthwhile trip.

Actually hor, there are a few old people in the there too. As for the snow ice, I rather sit inside aircon room and slowly eat it. The hot weather was causing it to melt fast.

not 12hrs of eating continuous la... siao ah.... it's alot of time walking... talking... waiting... moving from place to place... and waiting for time to pass.... and a minor part of that is eating... and in the end i think this is more enjoyable than sitting at one place and gouge on food non stop...

Oh...I am sure you guys having a great time...eating is one form of pleasure in life which sadly this day, most are rushing to finish their meal before going back to work.
