KL Hokkien Mee ($6)
.
Black KL hokkien mee from Dynasty Fried Porridge. Haven’t tried the fried porridge but this seductive black beauty caught my attention more. Huge portion for $6 topped with crispy pork lard. I would have preferred less noodles with more ingredients but the wok-hei is definitely on point. I was slurping up the remnant gravy off the plate at the end.

Brown Sugar Boba Milk ($5.20)
.
Brown sugar boba milk from @jenjudansg . The pearls are slightly softer but very qq and I like the adjustable sugar level for this drink. Great that queues are not long here.

Signature Wanton Fu Noodles Dry ($4.80)
.
Mealtimes can’t get more economical than @wantonfusg with #burpplebeyond . For $4.80, we get 2 bowls of noodles that doesn’t stinge on noodles quantity or ingredients. Crispy pork lard is freeflow and the signature chilli sauce definitely packed a kick so go easy for people with low tolerance. The side of ngou hiang was fried fresh upon order but that felt steep beside the wanton noodles and tasted only average.

Salmon Sashimi
.
Birthday cake never tasted so heavenly before. @sumobarhappy when celebrating birthday within a week of the actual date and 4 or more diners order a main each, we get this complimentary platter of salmon sashimi slices equivalent to our age (up to a max of 60). This bowl of salmon wasn’t [email protected] credit though but I was lucky enough to have pioneer gen in the group so we got the full 60!!! Salmon slices were definitely fresh and yummy and as thick as usual sashimi!

Dirty Brown Sugar Milk Tea ($4.90)
.
Yet another #burpplebeyond deal thats beyond amazing. Frankly didn’t hold high hopes for this milk tea store especially when the nearby Liho sprouted a long queue while there was hardly one @hollin_sg . How do you beat a bubble tea having a 1 for 1 deal and the dirty brown sugar actually tasting quite good with their staple white pearls? I love that the drink was not too sweet as with many boba style drinks and the pearls had a less starchy bite to it and felt less heavy. Also tried the caramel tea rock salt drink and was again pleased to find that while the caramel aroma was present, the drink didn’t disappoint by overwhelming me with sweetness. Just a nice touch of caramel at 25% sugar level.

Live Prawn Noodles ($8)
.
The definition of what “Live” is supposed to mean. Each bowl of prawn noodles at Kallang Cantonese Live Prawn Noodle (#01-83) located at old airport road food centre is made fresh to order as the smiley lady stall owner will fish out the live prawns (scroll right) and drop it in boiling water. Fret not though as the prawns are not cooked in the same broth as the soup. Any livelier and you’ll have to catch it yourself! This no frills prawn mee does not complicate with fish cake or pork slices though there are other options of adding pork ribs, pig tail or shrimp wontons. I especially love the texture of the prawns here.

Chef J’s Te Kar Bee Hoon ($12.80)
.
Totally missing this plate of pig’s trotters bee hoon in my hood @enjoyeatinghouse tucked in a corner of Kam Leng Hotel. The hotel and the restaurant both pack a rustic 80s vibe evident from all the decor and display pieces. The slick beehoon coated heavily with all that braised porky sauce was so damn tasty that sharing this plate was just wrong.

Asahi Battered Fish & Chips (~$18)
.
Visited @levelup @eatplaylovesg and had an awesome time! Food and drinks reasonably priced. I particularly loved the Fish & Chips as the batter was so light and ultra crispy while the fish was really soft and moist, just the way F&C should be. Don’t forget to collect a token for every drink ordered as the signature of this place is its retro arcade machines.

Tea King Ice-cream ($1.90)
King Fone ($5.50)
.
Satisfied with @heytea tea based ice cream especially at that unbelievable price-point right in the heart of clark quay. Smooth and creamy, the portion size was just right if I’m looking for a cold dessert but and full from dinner. The cheezo tea was a little disappointing for me. The cheese foam was just a little too savory and not as smooth as KOI’s and didn’t quite flow with the tea when sipping.

Thai Milk Tea Pudding ($5.50)
.
Wiggly jiggly epitome of wobbly @uykdsg , this pudding is smooth with an intense Thai milk tea flavour. Fantastic dessert after all the amazing spicy food.

Waffles & Ice-cream (~$18)
.
Another great deal from #burpplebeyond @twentygrammes to get 1-for-1 waffles. Loved the crisp yuan yang waffles, a combination of original and charcoal. Ice cream flavours were also aplenty and interesting. I personally enjoyed the seasalt caramel and black sesame ice cream. The only thing I stayed away from was the rather powdery salted egg sauce. The ice-cream and waffle combo was satisfying enough!

Leng Zaab ($28 for 2-3pax)
.
No regrets trying out the food @uykdsg . They serve up a different set of Thai cuisine that’s more northern style and on a slightly less spicy note. This was the star at lunch both in terms of presentation and taste. Prime pork and back ribs cooked to tender perfection and garnished with lots of herbs set on fire with alcohol to deliver a more concentrated flavour followed by the pouring of the Issan spicy sour soup onto the ribs. The soup was absolutely slurp-worthy and refillable!
