Long queues at hawker centres are never a pleasant experience (think hot weather and dozen of humans excuse me-ing you with their tray of food). For those who dread queuing for Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee at Old Airport Road, go try this stall near Eunos MRT. Way shorter queue and yummy bowl! The gravy is v flavourful on its own, so go easy on the chilli paste as it might be a lil salty for the taste bud. Wrack the chilli padi if you want the heat for your noodles 🔥

I adore croissant & yam! This makes @taicroissantsg’s croissant x yam taiyaki one of the best snack on Planet C-53. I would gorge more of these taiyaki if the pastry skin is less sweet. Nevertheless, digging the buttery edge and filling! 😋

Found another gem with burpple beyond! Tried bone marrow for the first time and I like it. Felt the love and care in each dish (even the sides). Warrant another visit!

Never thot I would find an udon eatery that is comparable to the ones I had in Japan. Def a place to visit for your udon cravings!
•
🍜 Magma Spicy Udon (S$13.80)
🍜 Tonkotsu Udon (S$12.80)

For those looking for authentic Hokkien fare, do visit Beng Thin Hoon Kee restaurant at OCBC Centre! Love their crispy oyster egg (mad dope), claypot tofu, crispy roast chicken, prawn roll and yam paste. Pretty generous w their portion. Recommended for chinese family/big group meals!

Visited @koganeyamasg without much expectation and was pleasantly surprise with the food! Very affordable Bara Chirashi Don (S$14.90). The deal was made sweeter with @burpple beyond one-for-one deal. Warrant another visit!

@house_of_happiness_sg offers creative twist to claypot dishes where diners get to try unique combinations of this local delight. We had teriyaki pork jowl (S$7) and pork lard bacon with furikake (S$7). Perhaps in an attempt to reduce cooking time to feed hungry diners like me, I personally find the flavour from the ingredients did not seep much into the rice and there was a lack of “wohei” a good claypot shld have. But on a whole, the claypot dishes are still enjoyable. The star for me gotta be its elder sibling —> signature lor bak ($9)! Super tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture that makes you go mmmmmmmm. Love that they also offer three types of chilli to go with your food. You got me there! 🤪

Found another under the radar restaurant! We had the Ebiko Tagliolini (S$30) and Pork Ribs (S$28). I’m not a big fan of creamy pasta but this one I had at @philosophy_sg was so good. Mad burst of flavours and not “gelak” at all. Pork ribs were v tender and palatable. Thanks to @burpple beyond, I get to explore new food places like this one. Def will come back to try other dishes and I think you shld too!

At @pastasupremosg , you can choose between their ala carte menu or build your own pasta! Tried the Supremo Porky Marinara from the standard menu. The sauce is incredibly flavourful with the added pork croutons. The protein (meatball & bacon) was a lil dry in my dish. But gotta say the water chestnut is a nice addition in the golf ball sized meatball.

Service was rather crummy. My friends were asked not to consume their own drink (plain water). While we understand outside food and drink is not allowed in most restaurants, to be asked not to consume our own plain water was a first for all of us at the table. We do understand every restaurant has their own policy. However as customers, we appreciate if such request can be put across in a less abrupt manner 😊

Been wanting to try @projectwarung ‘s burgers but was deter by their long queue at the Golden Mile branch. So glad they opened their 2nd branch in my hood (easties ftw)!
.
Had the Burg’s bacon cheese burger (S$7) and honey butter wings (6pcs-S$4.90). Love the soft bun and bbq sauce. Fries was disappointing and the patty was a tad dry for me. The wings are def a steal for that price. Will be better if its crispier. Very decent meal for hawker food! I see a lot of hard work put in by the owners. Thank you for providing good food to the people!
