What’s up everyone! Friday is back which means its time to announce our winners for the week again!
Location: Citrus By the Pool
Fried Chicken & Waffle $15.90 – This is my favourite! It’s like a main and dessert together. The chicken is fried very well. Crispy on the outside tender on the inside. I love the waffles because of the syrup. I enjoyed the dish as a whole. I’m definitely gonna be back for this. Kid’s Chicken Tomato Pasta $6.90 – The toddler had the pasta. But we all tried a little and it’s enough to impress us. The pasta was al dente and the sauce was flavourful too. The chicken was well seasoned. I would also want to try their other pasta dish in the future. Baked Salmon $16.90 – I’m also going to be back for the salmon. The portion is good, and the fish is well baked. It’s tender. Except for the skin which is a bit tough but I can forgive. Served with mashed potato and veggies. This is a very good dish too. I would also recommend this. Da Bomb Burger $11.90 – My sister had this. And she said it wasn’t as good as she thought. The Cajun fries tasted normal. The egg on the burger did help bring out the flavour overall but not as good as the other dishes. Chicken Steak-out $13.90 – Underwhelming too. The homemade brown sauce is good but the chicken we had was a little tough and dry, unlike the kid’s pasta. Overall we all very impressed with the pasta. My personal favourite is the fried chicken and waffle. I also want to commend on their service. The staffs are very friendly and nice. Keep up the good job and see you guys another time! Thank you XINDOTS for the voucher!

Just when u think I am sharing where to get the best Bao in Singapore… I am actually sharing the “Bao Zi” dessert that I ate. This is made from chrysanthemum white chocolate mousse, yuzu, lemon and matcha sponge. The $8.50 “Bao Zi” is actually not very big. In fact, one person can polish it off or share it with another person. Do note that they have a limited menu after 3 pm. Thus, I ordered a “Sio Bak” taco.
Location: Boon Chiang Hainanese Chicken Rice
Hainanese Chicken Rice Guide Located near Ubi Area served one of the best chicken rice (esp the sauce – a must to try). These are dishes I have enjoyed: – Steamed Chicken (whole) Chicken Rice – Oyster Sauce Vegetables (big) – Chicken Organ: Chewy Texture😋 – Century Egg Porridge – Crispy Fried Wanton – Thai-style Fried Beancurd
This is the best Nasi Lemak I ever tasted in Singapore. Har Cheong Chicken is their signature and it comes with blue rice or blue nasi lemak. They also have rendang chicken/grilled chicken. Seafood : Fish Fillet / Japanese Kebayaki Unagi / Breaded Fried Ebi Rendang Chicken / Har Cheong Chicken / Grilled Chicken / Breaded Fish Fillet @ $6.50 Japanese Kebayaki Unagi @ $10 Breaded Fried Ubi @ $8.50(Price above is with blue rice / blue nasi lemak) They have many beverage options! Flower Tea / Milk Tea / Coffee / Chocolate / Fruit Tea Butterfly pea flower tea @ $1.00 Blue Rice – by Butterfly pea flower 蝶豆花） We enjoyed it very much and it is worth the price.
Location: CreatureS Restaurant
The highlight of this restaurant has got to be the desserts! They are famous for their durian cake which is one of the top sellers. The chocolate cake with sea salt on the top and coconut ice cream were another wow! The coconut ice cream together with the cake is such a good combination. For the mains, they have done fusion of local with modern. The chicken rice roll consisted of a paper rice roll wrapped in chicken pieces and chicken rice and the laksa was good but it is too expensive for a bowl of laksa… I would say desserts before dinner perhaps?
Location: Benjamin Barker Cafe
My second time at this cafe. Today we ordered the laksa pasta, golden fragrance seafood, truffle scented mushroom, and egg pizzas and the grilled salmon aglio oglio. So first, the pasta. The salmon was grilled perfectly, with a crisp exterior and flaky interior and it wasn’t overcooked but moist and flavourful. The pasta was al dente although I thought the taste of garlic and spice could’ve been stronger as it was a bit too bland for my liking. The pizza, on the other hand, was great! The crust was chewy yet not too thick, the sauces were so unique! Laksa pizza which really tasted like laksa! They even used quail eggs and fish cakes as toppings to mimic the real dish! The truffle scented mushroom pizza was good on the first slice but after a while, I got rather bored of it. It was just a basic tomato base sprinkled with mushroom and strands of a semi-runny egg. My favorite was the golden fragrance seafood pizza. To be honest I am not sure what sauce they used as it’s not even stated on the menu but it was just so unique! Intense umami flavour. It’s kind of like the classified chicken of Domino’s but less creamy and more cheesy. The only thing I have against the pizzas were the toppings. I wish they could be more generous with it.
Location: Mom’s Touch Chicken & Burger
I love fried chicken! I tried the ones from Mom’s Touch and their fries were the wow factor for me. The chicken was crispy and juicy but not as “fragrant” as other fried chicks restaurant. Still a good meal nonetheless!
Location: % Arabica Singapore Arab Street
The queue was quite overwhelming for a coffee shop. It was a hot humid day…so a cup of ice coffee sure will do the magic. The coffee shop is conveniently located on Arab Street. With modern minimalist decor, the ambience is clean and comfy. I tried the famous Spanish Latte. It was creamy, smooth and yet still have the coffee fragrance. However, for the value of a $9 takeaway coffee, I’d choose a more wallet-friendly place.
Location: New Ubin Zhongshan Park
I had the opportunity to visit New Ubin Seafood over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. Although they serve what I coin as “premium zichar”, my family and I enjoyed our dining experience there. Food was served promptly and they also catered to birthday celebrations. Not that they provided complimentary cake but their willingness to help to prepare the cakes and provide utensils left a lasting impression! Coming back to the dishes, the most notable dishes I will like to recommend is the St Louis Pork Ribs $36. A little steep on the price but the tenderness and marinade made it worth the try. This fried rice had a great wok hei taste without being excessively oily too! Fish head curry $32 was mildly spicy, white rice is a good complement. Unfortunately, the fish head itself was a little small, definitely not for big group sharing. Lastly, do not recommend the Tze Char Pork Chops $28. It was coated with a thick layer of flour and pork flesh that tasted nothing like pork. We ordered the salt and pepper which was basic stuff but it went quite wrong. It was more like deep-fried tempura loaded with MSG and some chili flakes!
Location: White Restaurant @ Suntec City
Got to try the Mala White Bee Hoon (exclusive to Suntec City White Restaurant outlet)! For someone who only takes xiao la for mala Xiang Guo, the spiciness level of this was tolerable! Do note that the spiciness level for this dish is fixed! Between this or the original, I will still prefer the Original White Bee Hoon with their signature chili sauce!
