AYO everyone~ It is finally December! Have you achieve your 2019 resolutions yet? *I completely failed mine HAHAHA* Anyways another Friday is here which means another list of winners!
Location: Yaowarat Thai Kway Chap
Thai Kway Chap! So peppery, so comforting, so tasty. The first time I went to this place, it wasn’t impressive at all. But the second and third time that I came back, it felt like they improved. The soup was tasty and Kway chap was good. The fish sausage was amazing and the eggs were well…just eggs. Lastly, the crispy pork belly… Wow. Just wow. I encourage all of you to try it. Absolute fire!
Location: Riverside Point
Jumbo Seafood never fails to impress! I have brought my overseas colleagues to the outlet at Riverside Point which is my first visit to this outlet. We were so lucky to get the VIP room with a beautiful night view of Clarke Quay! We ordered Chilli Crab, Black Pepper Crab, Live Prawns fried with Golden Salted Egg, Home-made Vegetable Beancurd braised with Crab Meat & Deep Fried Mantou. The serving portion is pretty generous & filling for 5 ladies. My overseas colleagues enjoyed all the dishes very much & even bought the chilli crab spice, black pepper spice & the new Singapore exclusive chilli crab flavoured Pretz to bring back to their countries.
Location: Common Chefs Bistro
Their Truffle Tater Tots are legit! Crispy and with a strong scent of truffle! So yummy and comes with truffle mayonnaise too! Shepherd’s Pie another must-order, request for it to be warmed up. Flat White was good and well balanced just a little meh. Latte art è cafe gets a bit warm especially during the afternoons, don’t say I didn’t warn you! Generally it is kind of pricey but to each its own.
Location: Creamery Boutique Creams
Counter Strike is a creative ice cream creation of pistachio, caramel & chocolate fudge. When I first saw the flavours I was like, “what?”. Curiosity got the better of me so I asked to try and it was like booms! I ended up falling in love with this creation. I am always a fan of pistachio ice cream and the addition of caramel and chocolate fudge brings it to a whole new level. The freshly baked cookie stuffed with chocolate lava is so soft and squish-able.
Honeycomb ice cream with waffles for $7.50 +$2.50 for another scoop major love! For this humble neighborhood cafe that offers both ice cream waffles & light bites (mozzarella cheese sticks, fries, etc) at an affordable price but even so, the taste is not compromised!
Location: Takagi Ramen (AMK)
This is something affordable if you’re on budget and wants to eat a full set of ramen that has rich soup base. For under $11, you can get yourself a bowl of ramen + side dish + drinks. The soup was rich but the taste of their chashu is slightly bland for me. Tips: Add Kaedama and Soup if you’re bring kids along. One ramen portion might be too much for a kid. For kids , you can order Kaedaman($0.50) + Soup($2.00) + Ajitama($1) + Corn($0.50) = Total $4 should be sufficient enough.
(Please don’t tell them I teach you guys this)
Location: Four Leaves (Bugis Junction)
This cake costs $4.90 if I’m not wrong! It’s quite sweet which I like, cake has layers of jellyish texture (probably mixed with gelatin) which I found quite interesting. Taste is good. Would recommend to try!
Location: Hot Tomato
First time trying Hot Tomato. Had their Seafood Mix Grill and Spanish Pork Chop. Both dishes came with aglio olio, which I felt it could be slightly spicier. I’m not a spicy lover and I cannot take spicy food. However, I feel that for aglio olio, the pasta should have a spicy kick to it. Seafood mix grill – came with 2 prawns, 3 calamari, a portion of salmon, and a side salad. Salad wise – it’s the standard romaine, i like their citrus dressing, helps to whet up an appetite. The seafood was grilled nicely, I wished they had served more calamari cause it was not too chewy. Spanish pork chops – The sauce at the side was good. Seems like the pork chop was marinated lightly and it goes well with the sauce. Came with side coleslaw too. Overall, it’s just an atas place serving normal western food. Can probably find nicer western food elsewhere.
Location: Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh
Visited this outlet at Jalan Kayu last year and have been returning ever since! The food is generally quite nice and service is fine. What I love about Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh is that they provide hearty meals and job opportunities for ex-convicts. What a lovely way to carry out a business. My personal favourite will be the pig intestines, sesame claypot chicken, the herbal bak kut teh and ngoh hiang with sweet sauce! The bak kut teh soup comes with a strong taste of herbal and the depth of umami was good. The sesame claypot chicken was umami and bold in flavour, a must try in my opinion! The pig intestine will please the palates of innard lovers. Overall, I’d say it’ll be worth to visit over a catch up with friend and perfect for the cold weathered days!
Location: Burger & Lobster Raffles Hotel Arcade
With Burger and Lobster now opened at Raffles Hotel, you can easily get your lobster fix without having to travel to Jewel. If you have heard about their Lobster Rolls, why not try them? The classic original lobster roll is a must try, especially if your palates are heavy on savoury. Featuring chilled chunks of lobster meat, tossed and dressed in creamy lemon mayo, stuffed in a toasted brioche roll. Notice how the chunks are overflowing between the warm, fluffy buns that were filled with a prominent butter flavour. Sinking our teeth into the stunning juicy lobster meat, there was a complexity in flavours. Nothing short of a deep satisfaction. Accompanied with fries, salad, chives and lemon and garlic butter, which we happily dunked our lobster chunks into.
