In celebration of their first anniversary, Unagi Ichinoji is celebrating with two special limited-time-only dishes!

One of the specials would be the Ichinoji Mixed Box ($36.80)! It comes packed with all things good; their signature unagi, fresh kaisen-don (Tuna, Salmon & Hamachi), charcoal-grilled A5 Wagyu, ikura & shredded tamago in a traditional shokado bento.

Every mouthful was a combination of salty burst of ikura, melt-in-your mouth meats, crunchy bits of charred skin of the unagi & fresh bites of sashimi.

Get your hands on this box from now till 20 May! While you’re there, get a $20 voucher for a return trip & have it all over again!

Thank you @brandcellar for the invite!

Specially available only during the weekends is this gem - Boba Croissant ($5) from @brotherbird_bakehouse!

If you’re a huge fan of boba milk tea, with those drool worthy brown sugar pearls, you’re in luck! This croissant stuffed version is an exciting interpretation of the popular drink & one that you should get your hands on!

The crispy buttery croissant is stuffed with sweet brown sugar custard (makes much like the drink itself, but less sweet) and the best part, pearls. Yes, you heard me right! Chewy bouncy pearls are added into the croissant, giving you that extra texture and bite, kinda like their mochi doughnuts that they’re popular for!

If you like those brown sugar boba milk tea / milk, you’d definitely love this!

P/S: they’re usually sold out quickly! So I suggest contacting them in advance to order or chope before you regret!

Where else to enjoy simple mala dishes apart from the usual fragrance pot is at @enjoymala!
.
Located on the fourth floor of Orchard Central, next to the now defunct STRAY by Fatcat, you’d be able to Enjoy the many different Mala dishes they have for you!
.
Each dish comes with a mala soup broth (standardised spiciness), so if you’re really into mala, this is perfect for you!
.
One of my fav dishes would be the Sweet Potato Noodles 宽粉 ($6.90) as I get a full bowl of slippery, chewy, bouncy sweet potato noodles soaked well in mala broth, topped with peanuts, chilli padi and coriander.
.
Other popular favourites (swipe left) is the spicy spare ribs, spicy wontons & prawn paste balls!
.
If you’re a #burpplebeyond subscriber, good news for you! Enjoy Mala is available and you’d be able to get 1 for 1 Sichuan dishes!
.
Apart from that, for all who order & dine in, you get free flow ice cream too! So if the heat is too much for you, there’s always lime, vanilla or chocolate tubs waiting for you.

Available as part of #burpplebeyond’s 1 for 1 offerings, the Si Chuan Spare Ribs was a right choice.

The spareribs were cut into small bite-sized pieces and cooked in the mala broth, served with the large beansprouts, leafy vegetables and topped with cut chilli padi and spring onions.

The meat is done perfectly that it slides off the bone with just a small tug; making it extremely soft and enjoyable. Have it together with the mala broth and you’ve got yourself a hot party going on.

After finding out about this quiet space in Orchard Central, I’m back again for the second time to enjoy the quiet space and spicy hot bowls of mala.

One of the must gets would include this Si Chuan Spicy Wontons. Each bowl comes with the large bean sprouts, the main item and a mala broth. The wontons are generously filled with prawn and minced pork, before being wrapped in thin dumpling sheets. The broth that it is cooked in is drinkable (yes you heard that right), after removing the layer of oil on top of it.

P/S: for every person who dines you, you get to help yourself at the free flow ice cream bar to help you get rid of the fire. The ice cream comes in small individual cups with 3 flavours - lime, vanilla and chocolate.

As they’re siblings with 串 (Chuan), and they are a local store, it is only apt to offer satay!

Good thing is, they have all 4 variants available, Chicken, Pork, Beef and Mutton; all going at $1.30 per stick, with a minimum order of 4 sticks.

The chicken satay came perfectly grilled, with lesser char than the usual ones you get outside as the fire is well-contained and managed here. The meat were plump and juicy and the seasoning was just right!

The peanut sauce that accompanied the satay tasted like a healthier version of the peanut sauce, with their peanut bits grounded a little more.

When at Fat Bird, you’d be able to order your favourites from 串 (Chuan) as they’re both owned by the same company!

Popular for its Asian skewers, each skewer allows you to choose between 4 of their seasonings - Chinese Secret Spice 中式烤粉, Spiced Salt 椒盐, Spiced Miso Kimchi 韩式烤酱 or Teriyaki Tare 日式照烧.

Within the menu, they would’ve also suggested the type of seasonings that you should go for, but of course, you can always choose your favourites!

So for the mid wings, we went for the Chinese secret spice, which comes as a mix of cumin power, white sesame, shallots and peanuts! It kinda taste a little like a mala seasoning, but not too much of a deadly, one that packs a small punch but easy to consume.

Other hot skewer favourites are Potato Slices ($1.20), Shishamo ($1.50), King Oyster Mushrooms ($1.20) and many more!

To add a local touch, they even serve satay and comes in all 4 variants - Chicken, Pork, Mutton, Beef!

I’m not a huge fan of yam, but when this arrived, I must say it changed my perception of yam slightly.

Sliced thinly and stir fried together with sliced chilli and coriander, the yam had a sweet but crispy taste to it; kinda like sweet potato fries.

This went perfectly well with the Kirin Frozen Beer we had & could perhaps become a beer snack too!

New on the Maccas menu is their sweet chilli fish burger!!

You’d usually think filet-o-fish is the way to go, but with this newest seasonal addition, I think the old staple has a competitor.

The new burger comes with fish in a crusty tempura-like batter, topped with sweet chilli sauce (kinda like sweet chilli + mayo), and fresh lettuce (not in frame cause this was a special order) between 2 toasty buns.

The ending result is a tasty good ol’ maccas meal 😊

If buns aren’t your thing, you can go for the fish & fries meal, which is essentially the same fish (2 slices instead) together with fries!

An Italian classic (I would think) is a squid ink pasta. As a child, you’d have seen it on tv & wonder how people got their teeth stained black while eating pasta. & it’s only till much later that you discover squid ink pasta.

Cooked simple in squid ink & white wine sauce, the linguine was served al dante, with rings of squid, heaps of garlic and came pipping hot.

A fairly simple dish, but a satisfying one nonetheless as you slurp down this black beauty.

Thanks to burpple beyond, our total bill of 2 pastas was $24 #worthit
