The vibrant colour on the plate got me fall in love with this dish at the first sight. And when the guy mentioned "spicy", I just fell even harder. The light tomato sauce was indeed packed with a punch, and paired really well with the charred cauliflower, grated cheese and onion pickles. What a deadly combination!

This was my most favourite breakfast item from our Malacca trip! The bowl of mee sua came with a light, slighty peppery broth and was topped with sliced pork, minced pork, and some innards. Simple with no frills, it was no surprise that the shop was pretty full that day despite the light shower. Will definitely have this again if I ever return there 😊

Two of my favourite appetisers at any izakayas: Tako Wasabi and Ika Shiokara. They may be intimidating for many with the slimey texture and sharp flavour, but personally find this super addictive especially when eaten with rice. Another awesome izakaya feast 💕

I have a love-hate relationship with natto, but this natto tempura had all my love! The crispy seaweed gave a nice crunchy texture to the natto - perfect for those people who are intimidated by the slimey natto. And such a rarity in Singapore to find natto being done this way.

This platter of meats is the first dish I will order in this Hongkong cafe, and you should too if you come in a group. The glistening burnt edges of the charsiew was as superb as they looked. The sio bak was pretty good as well though the skin could have been crispier. Get their bowls of noodle to enjoy the meat with!

Normally, I order mee siam for its tangy soup, and here I got just what I wanted. The thick soup was far from mild in flavour, but not overwheming. And to top it off, the bowl of mee siam was loaded with ingredients — boiled egg, tau kuah, ngo hiang, fried "fish cake", and fish skin. I personally loved that seemingly hard boiled egg, that was actually more like a partially boiled egg with soft yolk!

With Mid Autumn Festival around the corner, Old Chang Kee has launched four halal mini mooncakes to celebrate Singapore's diversity. The striking green colour was the favourite with the fragrant green tea and sweet pandan flavour. To make your mooncake treats complete, the box of mooncakes also comes with some tea leaves for you to brew. Get yourself this box before 4 October!

My favourite dish of all we tried that day was this orecchiette with saffron & sausage. Though looking plain and dull, the al dente orecchiette was beautifully coated in saffron 'sauce'. The subtle spice flavour was made more addictive with the addition of cheese and black pepper. A dish that I would gladly pick any time!

Something delicate to end your meal! This one-buck warm tau huay from Tan Soon Mui easily slid down my throat and wasn’t too sweet. A light dessert that I can have anytime although they only have it warm.

The porchetta here boasted a crispy skin with some wild fennel stuffing although it had a slightly dry meat in the middle. However, the addictive spicy mustard that came with it was the bomb — it would go well with practically any meat!

Finally super good Japanese good after soooo long - almost shed joyful tears when eating here! One of the highlights was this uni pasta, which was pretty worth it considering the amount of pasta and uni given. The cold pasta was evenly coated with fresh creamy uni, giving a nice umami sensation to the tastebuds. To top it off, edible gold leaves to beautify this heavenly plate 💕 I'm already craving for this! And the best part is no compulsory drinking policy.

Found this tiramisu too light for my liking, lacking the alcoholic punch. I quite like the custard as it wasn't overwhelmingly sweet. But the pistachio was pretty mild, making it a rather underwhelming dessert for me.

It's always a feast whenever we eat (re: we always overeat) but how to resist good hawker food. Found some comfort food here: $1 beancurd, kway chap, and pig organ's soup - each deserves its own post. Link in bio to read more about hawker food that I have explored!

Santouka is launching a new menu from 18th September onwards! Beside the normal ramen bowls, they add a few other options such as Roast Beef Ae Soba and Tan Tan Men. The former was served cold with wasabi dressing and roast sesame dressing flavour. A refreshing dish that was great to whet your appetite!
The tan tan men came with a mildly spiced broth and super strong roasted sesame flavour. The qq noodle, minced meat and preserved vegetables made a perfect combination for my tastebuds!
My favourite of the night was definitely the Toroniku Ramen that came with melt-in-your-mouth Iberico pork cheeks. They were so fatty, tender and flavourful so much so that they went well with all the other dishes on the table (soba and tan tan men).
And the best part is, you can get this Toroniku Ramen at 50% off from 18th Sept to 21st Sept in conjunction with Santouka's anniversary. Time to get your ramen fix next week!

Thank you @jpassportsg for the kind invite and the super friendly staff at Santouka for the hospitality 😊

Curry Times just had their very first revamp ever since their opening in Singapore!
There are lots of options to choose from, and the best part: there's always something for everyone — be it your fussy kids or old-school 婆婆.
All kids meals sets come with ABC soup and soy milk (of course in smaller portions than the a la carte) to let them have a complete nutritious meal. I guess my tastebuds lean more towards traditional flavours, so my favourites were their signature Ngo Hiang (with generous amount of crunchy water chestnuts) and Seaweed Sauce Fish Fillet Rice (the sauce was just so perfect to go with rice).
To end off your meal, there are various local desserts such as Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts (sorry, I'm such a sucker for orh nee) as well as "fusion" old-school drinks like Winter Melon with Lime Juice & Basil Seeds.
They also have affordable lunch sets that might be perfect for office workers who need a quick satisfying lunch, so check them out!

Thank you Janice from @currytimessingapore for having us and @cweizhi for extending the invite :)

The rain successfully stopped us from heading for our izakaya lunch plan, but lucky we found ourselves a good substitute! You can choose the thickness of each soup (as well as the oil and spicy level for the mala broth), and the ingredients here are all a la carte. They also have free flow sauce + fruit station (comes with an additional charge) and the typical HDL service (hairband, apron, wiping cloth for glasses, etc.). Probably not the cheapest hot pot, but the pretty good broth (their mala is 👍🏼), the fair range of ingredients (cheaper than the famous HDL) as well as no queue (during lunch) would be the plus points to return here! The only downside was the rather big portions of ingredients with no half-size option, but get a few of your buddies together to get this problem sorted!
