Aw, Crab 5 Senses Bistro has quietly updated & overhauled its menu since the last time I’ve been there. One of the new dishes on the menu is this White Seafood Crabmeat Pasta ($14.90++), which sees crab meat (duh), squid, shrimp & mussels stewing in a wonderful white seafood soup. Apparently, 5 Senses takes the old adage that ‘you eat with your eyes first’ very seriously, as they serve this piquant pasta in a cute ceramic crab bowl. It is a little annoying to get all that brilliant broth out with all the tiny nooks inside the bowl, but there’s no denying that the presentation is bang-on beautiful. 5 Senses has always been a stellar soup maker even though they don’t specialise in soups, and their white seafood soup is utterly umami. It’s rich, briny, wondrously wholesome, and is undoubtedly hearty. The angel hair pasta is competently cooked to al dente perfection and absorbs that sapid soup well. The seafood was pleasantly fresh, with the mussels tasting nice and clean and the crab with just a little hint of sweetness in it. The weird thing about squid is that it must be cooked just right, or it must be thoroughly overcooked in order to qualify as perfectly cooked squid. 5 Senses’ squid is definitely at the latter end, with the squid being soft and easy to bite into, with just a little bit of resistance and snap. The shrimp within ain’t much, but they’re fresh, slightly sweet & satisfyingly snappy. Believe me folks, 5 Senses’ White Seafood Crabmeat Pasta is a tremendous treat for all 5 senses. No bullcrab here, only honest to goodness seafood soup.

Pan Seared Norwegian Salmon | $16.90 Salmon was seared just right with a crispy skin and soft interior. Doesn’t have fishy smell as well and could eat on its own. I love the sides which came with it especially the baked potatoes. Lightly salted, crispy on the skin, soft on the inside. 7.0/10

Semi Smoked Chicken Breast ~$15 This is a revisit for this restaurant. Tried the Semi Smoked chicken breast, aka bacon wrapped chicken breast and served with mashed potato & vegetables. Chicken breast meat is moist & tender along smoky bacon on the outer layer, It is the perfect combination!

My First Impossible Once you get past the strong fermented scent, digging into the Impossible Burger at Stamford Brasserie was a pleasant surprise. Strangely does taste like real meat! Unfortunately, it didn’t wow me enough to justify the price that impossible meats are normally tagged with.

an underwhelming experience I had visited TSB once before and quite enjoyed my meal then, so this was disappointing in comparison. We shared the TSB burger ($26++) which was highly rated but we found the “wagyu” patty dry, crumbly and cold. We actually enjoyed the brioche pepper bun more. Our other item was the roasted baby chicken ($22++), which fared better. While not flavourful, the chicken was at least moist and tender. We enjoyed the grilled brussel sprouts and garlic mashed potato - these gave flavour that the chicken was otherwise lacking. Service left much to be desired as it was difficult to get hold of the servers for simple things like water and the bill. Hoping that TSB will perform better on the next visit!

Impossible Burger I am a Yellowcarnivore because I generally love my meat and lack an affinity with most vegetables (opps). Having said that, I have been curious to try The Impossible Burger for the longest time ever because of the amazing reviews online. I finally tried The Impossible Burger ($23) at The Stamford Brasserie and I can only say that the reviews are true: how can a plant-based patty tastes so much like a legit medium-seared beef patty😱! The patty is juicy and flavourful - a little on the salty side but not that I mind given my salty tooth. I guess the unsalted chips at the side balanced it out:P The delicious patty goes well with melted cheese, pickles, tomato and Brioche Pepper bun - didn’t expect it to be this good:)!

Nasi Lemak Honestly not a fan of the much raved nasi lemak dish here. I felt that the chicken lacked flavour. It could be more flavourful. Ordered the breast meat which is my usual part of a chicken. The rice could also be more fragrant with more lemak and pandan flavour but it lack of that.

For Rave-worthy Nasi Lemak & Cendol Queues move fairly quickly here, and very soon you'll find yourself seated, with a generously-portioned plate of Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Berempah ($12.80). The crispy and juicy chicken thigh is the star of the show, featuring runny sunny side up and fragrant coconutty rice as excellent supporting cast members. Pair that with the sweet but kicky sambal and you're golden. End the meal with their delish Cendol ($3.80) that sees finely shaved ice topped with freshly squeezed coconut milk, homemade pandan rice flour jelly and just enough gula melaka to balance out the milkiness.

Nasi Lemak When I first heard of the price, I was floored. $12 for nasi lemak?! But boy, was it worth it. We were offered the choice of chicken breast or thigh, and I chose the former. The portions were huge. The cucumbers were refreshing, the rice was fragrant and “lemak”, the sambal was slightly sweet (but packed a punch!) and the egg yolk was perfectly runny. Along with these amazing sides came the star of the dish, the chicken — and it was tender, oily and savory. It’s one of those dishes where I could only tell you to try it to believe it.
