Finally finally the chance to try this cake. Both the cake sponge and cream were rich in goma flavour. The cake sponge was fluffy but not that soft to fall under the weight of the goma cream as the slice became smaller and smaller with each bite. Really an enjoyment for any goma/ black sesame fan:)

Part II of Mala spree night which was totally unplanned for the new flavour of Mala Chocolate! It was so good ohmy! Velvety dark chocolate packed with a punch of intense mala flavour. The mala was so legit that it actually left a slight burning sensation in the stomach while and after savouring it. The White Christmas was the perfect complement as the mint custard with candy cane added a refreshing tone to the spiciness, without having the mala to overpower it.
If you are new to Tom, please don’t miss White Choc Nori, Parmesan Cheese and Chocolate Stout!

Part 1 of our Mala spree night!
Really one of the best MLXG I have ever had. Loved how dry they stir fried it in order to have all the ingredients soak up the mala gravy. The gravy was just so ❤️. $15.50 was definitely not unreasonable, considering that there were about 8veg, 1 meat and noodles! The popular potato noodle soup was the bomb! The soup was not spicy at all. In fact, it was overflowing with umami flavour and the perfectly cooked, smooth potato noodles just made the experience even more mind blowing! Not forgetting to mention how generous they were with the ingredients (kelp, minced pork, quail egg etc) in the broth too!
Had been eyeing this place in the longest as the two storey coffee house was always so crowded and the whiff caught while passing by was always so mouthwatering. So Glad that we gave it a try because it was totally worth it! Definitely returning to try other noodle options like Tan Tan mian!

The friendly manager was singing all the praises for this new vegetarian Hamburg patty hence i decided to give it a try. At first bite it tasted similar to moist minced chicken. However, as the taste slowly sunk in, the soy taste slowly unveiled itself which ended up being quite overwhelming and gelat till the last bite. After enquiring, soy products were one of the main ingredients of it, no wonder. Fortunately the free flow salad and egg stations made up for the experience. Special mention to the Cha soba and spicy ramen! So so so good:) not forgetting to mention the okonomiyaki styled omelette😝

Pretty decent fish and chips. The crunch on the crispy batter was pure addictive, yet thin at the same time?? The fries were fried to crisp as well. With it came a bowl of clam chowder and iced beverage. The clam chowder tasted more like can-made than homemade😅 The portion was quite filling. To relieve some of the greasiness (not that greasy frankly speaking), malt vinegar was readily within reach:)

Whole chicken breast lightly marinaded with spices as the main star in this quinoa bowl. This serving of quinoa was refreshing as it came with bite sized chestnut and remnants of vegetable stem as well as some beans. Also in this bowl was a fresh side of naturally sweet pumpkin resting on a bed of greens, all without any seasoning or sauce. This bowl was overflowing with flavours that emphasised the natural tastes of the individual ingredients, which somehow came quite nicely together. Hence, this is definitely a bowl to consider if one decides to eat really really clean. For once though, given that the dryness of the ingredients eventually crept in...

Tender beef cubes stewed in red wine, caramelised bacon pieces, carrots and valrhona chocolate. Really enjoyed the richness of that gravy which carried a chocolaty hint for me. This was in contrary to what the crew said during the dish recommendation, that the taste of valrhona would be subtle as it was only used to marinate the beef cubes. So maybe it’s psychological?😉 As the portion was small (since it is a Frapas= French tapas) and lacked a carb, I thought a potato mash would be an ideal side dish to make the dish more filling and complete:)

Definitely had to go for the pork patties at a place that specialises in it:)
Really enjoyed my super soft double pork patties made moist by the house made guacamole. With it was a generous serving of nachos with cheese sprinkled on it. However my friends mentioned that the patties in their burgers (Bacon & Cheese and Double P’s) were dry and hence, hard to finish them:( Maybe the guacamole and fresh salsa on my patties set the worlds apart?😊

Roasted beef, salmon and chicken signature lunch bowls with pickled sides eg quail eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, corn and onions. It’s pretty refreshing to have a pickled meal initially but it got a little boring towards the end as everything on the brown rice tasted pretty much the same.

Lucky enough to be able to treat ourselves to these crispy goodness before the stall relocated to Crane Road! It was really very crispy, yet fluffy. However, the chicken and fish curry were a lil disappointing. Nevertheless, a pretty good alternative to the stall at JB Bukit Chagar😊

Bought a plate of wanton mee while waiting for our order of prata. Though the slices of char siew were dry, the chilli sauce used was really enjoyable with a kick. It has been really challenging to find wanton mee with good chilli sauce recently, hence finding this was a delightful surprise:) The noodles were springy too! At a price of $3, the serving was really generous.

Not too sure if this stall is still there though, now that Mr and Mrs Moghan Prata stall has relocated😐

First time trying this Filipino dish which is similar to our ice kacang. Do away with all the food colourings, condensed milk and add flavourful ingredients like coloured jelly cubes, red bean, attap chee, corn, papaya cubes, caramel flan and fragrant yam ice cream, and you will get this yum dessert. To eat it, you pretty much have to stir everything together which proves to be challenging, given how much ingredients this dessert contains. I definitely enjoyed it more than our ice kacang. There wasn’t a single moment of gelatness and I enjoyed the experience of finding new ingredients within the icy and beautiful mess and savouring each mouthful of goodness.
This might or might not be the best halo-halo in town, but to me this first experience was amazing.
