Hey everyone~ It is Valentine’s Day! To all you couples out there, have an awesome and sweet weekend! Hopefully one of the winners can use our $50 voucher to use on the date!
Location: Five Guys
A little late but… YAY Five Guys is in SG!! Expect a substantial, hefty burger because their patties are reallyyy juicy! Cajun fries was good but kinda expensive ($9), & my fave would be that milkshakeee ($10) that’s thick but not too sweet.
Location: Bearded Bella
Pancake. Bacon. Flight. Magic | S$23 Fluffy, maple-infused hot cakes with just the right sweetness and texture; the maple syrup didn’t result in an cloying and moist pancake. There was just enough gold to seep through the cracks of your tastebuds to sweeten up your palate. – Of course, not forgetting the poor slices of bacon who had been suspended during our long photoshoot. The savoury element provided a good balance to the sweet pancakes. I personally prefer to eat them separately to properly enjoy the pancakes. My friends, on the other hand, chose to eat them together.
Pig & Eggs | $23 If you like Egg Benedict, you’re going to love this dish. Instead of the classic parm and smoked salmon, Bearded Bella paired this dish with a slow-cooked pork jowl. This cooking process results in a tender, juicy pork cheeks which just melts in your mouth despite its rigid appearance. For comparison, it tastes just like a fattier, less salty chashu from Sanshoku’s Dry Truffle Ramen. – Moreover, despite the richness of the pork cheeks and hollandaise, the slight tang of the pickled daikon assisted in breaking down all the fattiness. Otherwise, it would’ve been too greasy. – Spiced Scramble
$18 If you’re more conservative when it comes to trying new food, Bearded Bella also has more basic options such as the Spiced Scramble. Scrambled eggs, mushrooms, kale and sourdough toast, with a generous drizzle of black truffle oil to amp up the aroma. It doesn’t get any more simpler than that. – With the title of singapore National Barista Championship 2016 in their hands, there was no way we were going to settle for a normal cup of coffee.
Their Coffee Punch (S$6.5) is a cold brew immersed with diced fruits. Acidic, fresh with a subtle kick of sweetness from the fruits. I have to give it to them. It certainly is a unique taste, but it’s not something that we will order again.
Location: The Armoury Craft Beer Bar
The Bunker Burger ($25 + $2 for Salad) Wagyu Patty, Bacon, Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Onions (Optional)This is perhaps the ultimate rendition of a cheeseburger. With a separate container of nacho cheese and an incredibly thick beef patty, it’s all the beef you have ever wanted in a burger with practically unlimited amount of cheese. The bacon was crisp and chunky as well without stealing the limelight from the beef. Spotting a charcoal bun, the sesame seeds on top definitely helped to add another dimension to the burger but it was not as crisp nor fluffy as the traditional brioche buns. Nevertheless, it was still way above average and I would highly recommend if you’re looking for the classic. Taste: 8.5/10
Mentaiko Kaiju Armoury Burger ($24 + $2 for Sweet Potato Fries) Wagyu Patty, Melted Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Juicy Bursting Ikura, Mentaiko Sauce, Onions (Optional)Perhaps the most unique out of the 4, I was incredibly satisfied and pleasantly surprised at the generous serving of ikura served within the burger and strong mentaiko flavour provided with every bite. I may not have tried the centre of it which held the bulk of the ikura but my dining companion was incredibly pleased with it despite not being a huge fan of burgers. I would likely come back here again just to give this another shot. Taste: 9/10
Location: Halal Steakhouse
I was surprised that this is a halal steakhouse at Andaz hotel. The steak here was hit and miss. I was having the Blackmore Wagyu Striploin. I found it too charred, and the char masked up the flavour of the beef. The service so so. It is ok for a normal restaurant. I was expecting a more welcoming service given this is a steakhouse in a hotel.
Location: Wimbly Lu @ Tyrwhitt Road
Always here for their crepe cake with single scoop of salted caramel; in my opinion the best combination. However, the crepe today fell a little shorter than the usual one I have at serangoon’s outlet. If you prefer the crispy kinda of crepe, you might liked it tho.
Location: Jianghu Hotpot
Jianghu Hotpot is a Sichuan style hotpot. They served different kind of soup base. We all know Sichuan’s famous is: Mala! But today we ordered mushroom soup and suancai soup. Their suancai soup base, tasted sour and sweet. It’s good and mushroom soup base tasted refreshing also. You will get some number tags. And go to their selection area, choose what you want then hang the number tag there. After a while they will offer for you. But vegetables or noodles you can get if by yourself. (their black pork meat tasted super nice) Wuxia style decorations. Haha…..felt so special and fresh. After dining, can get voucher by playing games!! Good experience!
Location: Creamery Boutique Ice Creams Singapore
Banana + Chocolate, I never understood why this is widely accepted as the best combination, until recently. This Banoffee, interesting creation of banana, toffee & choco mud pie, together with the chocolate lava cookie is my new found favourite. — Choc-A-Lot w/ Banoffee $9.90
Location: 19 Tea Singapore
Craving of Souffle pancake when your wallet is having diet recently? Found this small café within the 1st floor of Tampines Hub.
Original: $3.90 Matcha: $4.20 Tiramisu: $4.20 *$3 each IF order with drinks*
They might not be the cheapest souffle pancake in SG but their price is confirmed one of the cheaper options! I will prefer to go for their Original version even though I am one of the Matcha & Tiramisu lovers. Additional 30 cents for the sprinkle of the powder on top of the souffle pancake, isn’t the style I like of. (Unless I am ordering drinks, I can give a try of the Matcha or Tiramisu next time). I am unable to customize the sugar level of the Signature Milk Tea thus it is really very sweet.
Location: Ollie Kitchen & Bar
Grilled Garlic Chicken: S$ 17.90 (Oven baked jumbo leg marinated in garlic, pommery cream sauce, garlic confit & grilled mixed vegetables)
BBQ Pork Burger: S$ 17.90 (Pork petty, lettuce, 🍅, homemade BBQ salsa, caramelised pineapple & truffles fries)
Ollie’s Olio Spaghetti: S$ 14.90 (Spaghetti pasta with 🦐, garlic, chilli flakes & olive oil)
Sautéed Mushroom with Garlic Chips: S$ 9.90
Location: Grain Traders
This place has soooooo many flavours. I love the green slaw. Had a kale base, daikon pickles(Indian style), mushroom, pulled jackfruit, turmeric cauliflower and coconut curry, nut garnish. The majority of the dishes are vegan and best sellers. Great ambiance, quite chill and they have a cafe stall for quick coffee and desserts in a separate area so you don’t mingle with long lunch queues if you just need a drink or quick bite.
