Good Nasi Lemak, Better Service The nasi lemak was good - the rice was fragrant and the chicken was very nice and soft. the best part for me however was the chilli! it was spicy and packed a punch, and yet also very flavourful. Really loved the chilli :-) the service here was also amazing - one of the waiters took our order but didn’t key it in so we were waiting for quite awhile for our food before asking them if our food was being prepared yet. when they realised they didn’t take our order down and key it into the system, they immediately declared that the entire meal was on them, including dessert! we were so shocked (normally other places might just apologise or maybe offer a free item...but this is a whole new level). thank you the coconut club for the best service recovery and also a very hearty meal. oh yes try the chendol, it’s really rich and flavourful and the red beans were great. If there’s any negative comment I must make, it would be that the chicken skin wasn’t particularly nice? I would wish for the skin to be crispy, even a little, but it was rather soft with no crisp. Otherwise it was a good meal, would recommend!

👉Nasi Lemak👈 Ayam Goreng Berempah, Coconut Rice, Ikan Bilis, Peanuts, Cucumber, Fried Egg & Sambal. 。 Awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2018 this year, @thecoconutclubsg specialises in serving up plates of high SES nasi lemak, along with their highly raved cendol. Tucked at Chinatown’s coolest spot - Ann Siang Hill, you can expect the club to be packed with customers on weekends and even weekdays! 。 The fried chicken was definitely an ingredient that stood out amongst the rest. It was tender, juicy and deeply marinated with the aromatic flavours of fresh herbs & spices. No doubt it was yummy, but it’s worth the $12.80++ price tag? Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nasi Lemak Singapore has indeed moved into a new era where local food had quietly become an amalgamation of factory-made products, and we began to fall out of love with many of our favourite dishes. Nasi Lemak was one of them. • Coconut Club is one of the many Food establishments that got into the foodie limelight! Also, They're also awarded Michelin Bib Gourmand lately. Which also explains why they're packed to the brim during weekends and even weekdays!. • Coconut Club Nasi Lemak: $12.80++

It doesnt take CRAZY rich Asians to be KUEHzy! 😎 . Back at Toa Payoh Lor 5 for some yummy Ang Ku Kuehs! Going at just $1 per piece, these traditional handmade kuehs are indeed attractive! 😍😍😍 . Previously had the classic peanut Ang Ku Kueh so this time round, we got the Salted Bean, Durian & Green tea flavours! 😉 . As expected, their innovative Ang Ku Kuehs were just as gratifying as the classics! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Really liked the mochi-like skin that was not overly sticky to the teeth (maybe cuz they were a tad oily 🤣) Totally didnt mind the uneven thickness (evidence that these are handmade 👏) cuz the fillings were good & generous too! 💕 . Green tea flavour was quite rich but equally sweet, which masked the astringent taste of tea. 💚 Durian was quite mild (not the real pulp kind, as expected from the price point 😂). Having the salted bean AKK was a good change in taste profile after the sweet ones! 👍🏻 . Still a delightful eat! 😋

🎶Got me looking so KUEHzy right now~ your love’s got me looking so KUEHzy right now~🎶 . Perhaps it’s really inherited from our heritage that explains my family’s love for Teochew-style kuehs like these! ❤❤❤ Nested at a corner of Nghee Huat Eating House coffeeshop at Toa Payoh Lor 5 is Hong Shan Ang Ku Kueh, a 30-year-old name selling a variety of traditional kuehs freshly made at the stall. The irresistible aroma & pretty colours of the kuehs just lures you in! 😍😍😍 . Had the Png Kueh ($1.40) as well as the classic peanut Ang Ku Kueh ($1). Donning a pretty pink coat 💕, the rice flour skin of the Png Kueh was sufficiently soft & did not have the rubbery texture. The filling was definitely the star of this kueh - a fragrant mix of savoury glutinous rice fried with dried shrimps, dried mushrooms, peanuts etc. 😋😋😋 With a little sweet sauce & chilli drizzled to enhance the overall taste, this made quite a good eat! 👍🏻 Except that I think this filling had some Chinese celery which I personally dislike. 🤣 . Their Ang Ku Kueh was really enjoyable! ✔✔✔ Albeit slightly thick in some areas (uneven distribution cuz they are all handmade), the beautiful crimson-red skin was so soft & mochi-like that it didn’t mind it at all. 👌🏻 The generous peanut filling added a good crunch & was extremely fragrant! 🤤🤤🤤 Totally my kind of snack! ❤ . Besides the traditional filling like peanuts & sweet/salted bean paste, they also have innovative fruity flavours like green tea, mango & even durian! Although Ji Xiang & Poh Cheu still ranks top on my list, this is definitely one of the better & noteworthy AKKs I’ve had! 👍🏻 . What a delightful find in the heartlands! 😋

One of the restaurants which we will be back again, especially when the theme on the menu for the next 12 months is monochrome - a focus on black and white inspired menu! Meet the two months old @Preludio.SG at Frasers Tower. This is one of the fun dish in the 8-course degustation menu, the Peek-a-boo is a beautiful surprise. The ingredients beneath are covered completely by the white rice cracker, where you get a delicious mix of Chinese and Jerusalem artichoke on a bed of egg yolk emulsion with subtle hints of yuzu flavour.

The Beef Course In The $55++ 4-course Set Lunch Holy Cow! The beef alone made it totally worth the $22++ top-up. My friend SK and I had zeroed in on the fat-woven Kiwami Wagyu for our set lunch main course, and we were equally over the moon with it. In the mouth, those thick, chunky cuts of beef melted like butter on a hot pan. No surprise there considering the close-to-creamy meat had a marbling score of 8+. The accompanying risotto of Acquerello rice was cooked to a firm chewiness. Arranged on top were Black Trumpet Mushrooms that brought a strong earthy aroma to the mix.

I Think The Lemon-flavoured Pasta In The $55++ 4-course Weekday Set Lunch Menu Is Superb Here’s what I learned from the praise-worthy pasta that my friends Angeline and Milly ordered: Preserved lemon juice is nothing like the juice from an ordinary lemon. The sharpness and acidity is blunted but the taste develops into something broader and wonderfully complex. It is the backbone of the luscious sauce that coats this plate of handmade spagettini, sea urchin, small cubes of clean-tasting Patagonian toothfish and shavings of “heart of palm”, festooned with shiso flowers. In summary, a beautifully executed dish that’s light but not at all common or simple. Which makes it the ideal choice if you are after a less heavy main course in the weekday 4-course set lunch ($55++) offered at Preludio.
