Nice Ambience Quaint little cafe hidden in Bras Basah Complex, with nice ambience. The owners were also very sweet and friendly which made the whole experience at this cafe enjoyable ^^

No Frills Coffee Fix Popped into the recently open @dancinggoatsg since we were in the area, and recharged our coffee addictions at this no-frills coffee joint 😋❤️☕☕ Run by a family who makes the cafe feel like a corner in a minimalistic home setting, the coffee here was surprisingly good. Especially enjoyed the Mocha which was richly aromatic without being cloyingly sweet. ☕🍫 If you enjoy a strong Flat White without the usual creamy taste, you'd enjoy the iced version! Thanks to #burpplebeyond we got 2 cuppas at only $5.50 (That's $2.75 per cup with this 1-for-1 deal!!!) 😱😱😱 Definitely worth returning to if you're in the Bugis/ Bras Basah area. 👍🏻☕❤️❤️❤️

Best Coffee, Hands Down We found this small, unassuming little coffee joint tucked away near bras basah complex, near Bugis and the National Library. It was helmed by a really friendly couple, and when we took the first sip of the flat whites we ordered, we were completely blown away. The coffee taste was so so strong and rich, and the flavour was impeccable. So many flat whites I’ve had elsewhere are simply disappointing, with too much milky taste and only a light coffee flavour. The coffee here was so impressive, and we were exclaiming in awe with every sip. Will definitely be back again!

Kipos Build Your Own Bowl For carb-conscious individuals specifically the office workers at Tanjong Pagar, there are no lack of salad choices. But one to add to the growing list is definitely Kipos Gourmet. A standard $10 serving there gets you a choice of two base, five greens, one dressing, one ‘Lux it up” topping and three crunch. If you need your protein, they come at an extra charge except for tofu. One of the more expensive options, my favourite was none other than the Aburi Salmon Mentaiko (+$5). Flaky, fresh and slathered on with rich cod roe, the slab was well-worth the cost as the resulting textures were melty soft. My other recommended pick would the Coconut Chicken (+$3); it offering a nice crunch and seasoned perfectly. Clearly not your usual boring salads, they also serve dressings such as Truffle Shoyu, Apple Cider Yuzu and Wasabi Ponzu. Having the foolproof truffle dressing, the flavours were nicely infused into the tossed greens and really amped up the bowl with its aromatic punch. Hence, those of you watching your waistlines can look forward to their second outlet at One Raffles Place. Scheduled to open in the end of April, the store would be carrying probiotic beers that are great for the immunity and gut. A big thank you to @kiposgourmet for the warm hospitality!

New Kipos April Menu! Kipos has a slight revamp of their menu - so they’ve got a new base (cauliflower rice +$2), new vegetable (Brussels sprouts +$1), new dressings (I only remember the cheesy pesto) and new Lux (kimchi). What’s in my bowl ($14) Base: Soba + cauliflower rice (+$2) Vegetables: Cucumber, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, radish Dressing: Truffle shoyu Lux it up: Mushroom medley + golden pillow Tamago (+$2) Toppings: Roasted almonds, tobikko, nori I love that there’s the option for cauliflower rice, but at $2 it’s a pricey addition. While the taste of cauliflower isn’t overpowering (which some might have found offputting), it’s still quite bland on its own and I probably wouldn’t order it again at the current price. Sadly no spinach left when I arrived, but there were still the other veggie options available. Went with truffle shoyu dressing again as a slightly healthier choice than ma la, and I still love it! The truffle smell is so strong and fragrant. Caved and got a second Lux, which was super worth it. Somehow the mushroom medley did taste a little bland today, but the Tamago was awesome! The staff forgot about my add-on Tamago but I checked before leaving, so they apologised and added on the tamago without any fuss. Toppings were the same as always and they’re always good. Love Kipos so much and I’m not even mad about it.

Quinoa Lemak There are days when we all have craving for nasi lemak yet we hope that it can be healthier. Kipos Gourmet has introduced the Quinoa Lemak ($8) whereby you can get to enjoy nasi lemak with less guilt. What I like about the bowl is their onsen egg, tender chicken and the almonds and shiok sambal chilli sauce. Definitely something that one can get when you want a bowl of comfort food yet feeling healthier. 📍 Kipos Gourmet

Red Ruby ($4.50) I usually prefer mango sticky rice to red ruby for my Thai dessert but I am glad I tried the red ruby here. Sitting on top in a packed bowl of crushed ice, the red rubies were made of crunchy water chestnut bits, coated with a chewy layer of red-colored tapioca flour. The dessert was slightly lactonic with the drizzled coconut milk, but the amount was just right. Complemented with jackfruit slices.

Thai boat noodles, choice of Pork or Beef ($3.90/small, $6.90/regular) Chill vibes on a Saturday evening at Royal Thai Boat Noodles & Bar that has indoor and outdoor alfresco seating. Enjoy the breeze and dine as you watch the cars drive by. Definitely had to try the Thai boat noodles since it was a specialty. We ordered a regular bowl of the pork Thai boat noodles and were served a flavorful bowl of pork broth, which was a little savoury, a little bloody-metallic and actually, quite sweet. For noodles, there was a choice of rice noodles or kway teow. Love the consistency and texture of the rice noodles, makes chewing even more enjoyable. Other ingredients include sliced pig liver, sliced lean pork, meatballs and the ever sinful-but-shiok pork lard! Don’t worry about the pig liver being powdery because it’s cooked with a perfect timing that gives a nice texture without being over/undercooked.

Boat Noodles Look at the generous portion for this bowl of boat noodles at 6.90. Much better as compared to many other boat noodles stores. The broth is fragrant, there’s lard in it, but did not feel overly oily. Would return for this again!

Aburi Mentaiko Salmon Don Very nice however they cut the salmon into small pieces. Would like it if they don’t cut them into small pieces. Free seating. Overall nice, worth trying.

Tough Pork Ordered the Hokkaido Butter Corn charshu ramen and pork cutlet Don. Both the pork was hard and covered with layer of fats. The noodle was blend. Heard that this was by Sushi-Teh so we give it a try. It was so disappointing. And it's not even "Hokkaido" standard.

Affordable Chirashi Bowls in Vivo I visited Hokkaido-ya once months ago but never made a return trip after trying their white curry ramen. As you can imagine, I didn’t enjoy that at all and felt it didn’t warrant a return trip. My colleague recommended Hokkaido-ya for the chirashi dons so I decided to give them another try. Ordered the Aburi Mentaiko Salmon Bowl ($10.90++) from the self-ordering counter and waited about 15 minutes for our buzzer to buzz for collection. It’s quite popular during lunch time and they seemed to prepare the orders rather slowly but we had time so it was ok. I was impressed with the amount of salmon, mentaiko and tobikko they provided. It was a really generous portion for $10.90 and it was pretty good quality too! The salmon cubes were fresh and well-torched on the surface, leaving some yummy sashimi texture below. The mentaiko was quite salty on its own, as expected, but blends in perfectly when mixed with the Japanese rice and aburi salmon. The tobikko and cucumber cubes added a refreshing crunch between mouthfuls too. I’m glad I gave Hokkaido-ya another chance because I really enjoyed today’s meal! Kind of wish they had more veggies included but that’s Japanese food for you. Would add this into my rotation of restaurants when I’m at Vivo/Harbourfront!
