Fish Not Fresh I won’t go back. SGD30 for this is not worth it. Fish was bland and tasted watery.... not fresh

Teru Sushi 01/07/19 Hiroshima Oysters ($1) These oysters were served with ponzu sauce (Japanese citrus sauce) and momoji-oroshi (grated daikon radish with chili oil) and spring onions at the side. As my friend and I had just consumed freshly shuckled oysters from The Dancing Crab @ Turf City the night before ($3), these oysters tasted noticeably less fresh, were much smaller in size and were sour and less juicy. While the sourness may have been due to the ponzu sauce, it did not do justice to the oysters and we would have preferred the oysters without the sauce. Also, though the oysters were served on a bed of ice, they were barely cold when we had them which made it even less enjoyable to eat. Taste: 4/10

Teru Sushi 01/07/19 Aburi Salmon Sushi ($10 at promotional price; $16 for 2 pieces) Starting off with the ball of rice, the sushi master would mould it gracefully with his hands before adding a touch of wasabi and black sauce (Soya sauce?) to the rice. A layer of salmon would then be placed on top before being blowtorched which I thought was the end of the spectacle, hence stopping my recording. However, he went on for some time afterwards adding numerous toppings - ebi miso (Shrimp paste miso), fish roe and tiny green onions. The aburi sushi was meant to be eaten in 1 bite and so I did. While there were quite a few flavours which I did not pick up (Including the ebi miso), the fish roe at the top definitely complemented the sushi really well, with bursts of briny saltiness after every bite. Taste: 8/10

Souffle Pancakes with Cheese These were so unique! I'm mad about pancakes so this is right up my alley. These were cooked right in front of us on the griddle and there was cheese sprinkled in the middle with a glorious golden drizzle of gula melaka sauce. There is a nice brown crisp exterior and the center is foamy and fluffy without being too sweet and there isn't an eggy taste at all. The melty cheese gives that salty, slightly savory pop and the gula melaka truly shines with a rich coconutty flavor. It is truly the epitome of fuwa-fuwa. I got to flip my own pancakes and then eat it with tiny spatulas. It's just so cute and fun. ❤️ Not saying it's the best pancake I've eaten, but it was really about the experience. And I really enjoyed myself here.

Grilled Whole Ika An entire grilled squid ($12)! The whole thing was cooked in generous amounts of butter which perfumed the squid and gave it a lovely, rich, salty flavor. The squid itself is generously sized and has quite a nice bouncy texture, and it wasn't chewy nor did I have to break my jaw trying to chew it into pieces, which I appreciated. I also liked that I got to try different parts of the squid like the legs and head, etc.

Mix Monjayaki Monjayaki is a runnier version of okonomiyaki (think melted cheese consistency). You scrape it hot and gooey off the griddle with tiny spatulas. The mixed monjayaki ($16) has bacon, prawn and squid mixed in, and I recommend it because it means each bite has the texture of gooey monjayaki, crunchy prawn, bouncy squid and savory pork. It's got a totally different mouthfeel and a starchier taste compared to okonomiyaki, but really fun to eat. Towards the end, the monjayaki gets caramelized on the grill, which results in being ridiculously crispy and delicious. Add a tiny dab of okonomiyaki sauce and bonito flakes for that final dash of seasoning.

Hearty breakkie. A bit overpriced for some of the items, but some hits for me. Love the waffle (not in picture) and I'm not a waffle person to begin with and the brioche too. Garlic fries were interesting but appeared as sides on a few other mains and so, I wished our server could have told us then we wouldn't have ordered another side of that (and yes, we didn't finish coz there's just too much fries). Think their egg Ben, egg royale and egg mushrooms are okay @ $19 but I'm biased coz I love my poached eggs with brioche so this combo works for me. Too stuffed to try their hand made ice cream but their chocolate tart @ $15 is too ex and not worth (coz I've had better) in my books. If I do ever come back, it's for the waffle ice cream and brioche whatever something something. Brunch menu only on Sat and Sun.

For Beer-Infused Mains in Novena Nickeldime Drafthouse is easily the best big group hangout spot for friends. The excellent beer list (both tap and bottled), impressively good bar bites and hearty Western mains are bound to satisfy; if not there’s always authentic Vietnamese pho next door to fall back on. There are 15 rotational craft beers on tap (from $10), sourced from all over the world. Each brew comes in limited amounts, so you can be assured you get something different with every visit. Order their 510 Burger ($16) — hickory stout BBQ glazed beef patty blanketed with IPA cheese, topped with a sunny side up egg and craft beer candied bacon, sandwiched between two fluffy homemade buns. Other beer-infused mains that are great for sharing include the I wanna Hold your Ham ($17), a cheekily-named 11-inch pizza made with beer dough. Pro tip: In need of a midday happy hour? Take advantage of their one-for-one craft beers during lunch and loosen up with a full pint of Tennent's Lager ($13), if available. Avg Price: $25 per person Photo by Burppler Hilary See

510 Burger And Tennent's Lager Possibly one of my new favourite places to get buzzed. LOVE the burgers here — drippy and hearty and everything I wished for in a burger (the boyfriend approves of this too) 🍔 We couldn't resist getting the one-for-one craft beers (there were only two to choose from — one cider or one lager) so we opted for the lager. Excellent choice on our end, might I say. Got me slightly buzzed even before I was halfway through the glass! Definitely will be back to try more of their beer-infused mains, and the other craft beers on tap! #BURpproved
