Was passing by the market today and stopped by to look around and found this stall selling Fried Shark Lor Mee with a pretty long queue. Jumped in the queue and ordered the small (lol the portion was very big and fulfilling tho) $4 one. They have a bigger $5 portion but I didn't really have much stomach space for it. Dumpling and fried shark meat was crisp and I was so happy that the bowl was full of generous portions of meat (including a big chunk of pork belly and some fried meatballs). Lor Mee sauce was great with the chili and garlic. Felt so guilty eating it afterwards bcs the calorie content is prob pretty high due to all the fried shark meat. But hey, pretty worth it once in a while! :)

Hock Lam Beef noodle is closing down by the end of this month. At first, I was hesitant to go and try it but after having heard the fact that their recipe has been passed down for 108 years. I decided that it must be worth a shot to try it. Luckily, I went there when the queue wasn't so busy yet (around 4.30pm) and I ordered the mixed beef kuay teow soup ($9.90). The soup was beefy and delicious with about 13 spices blended into it. I must say it exceeded my expectations and is almost similar to the one I had in Bangkok. I really loved how the portions are just right. The bowl was generously filled with sliced beef diced beef tendon beef balls and stomach! The soup goes really well with the lime and chopped chili however their homemade chili was quite sweet so I didn't think it would go that well with the soup. I am definitely coming back to eat the dry beef kuay teow next time!

Went to the Jurang East Mall outlet this time and ordered the usual Tendon on rice. I was extremely happy with the consistency of both outlets and yes once again my tummy was happy :). I was even more amazed that after 40 mins of talking and slowly eating the tempura was still crispy even when it is soaked in sauce! Hands down would recommend this to all my friends

Second time to Rakki Bowl and it's sooo worth it with the 1 for 1 Burpple Beyond membership. The Truffle taste in the Truffle Gyu Don was really strong and I loved it. The mentaiko salmon Don was too creamy for me but however they did serve generous big chunks of salmon sashimi on it. On my first visit I tried the bara chirashi and it was pretty decent. I think out of the 3 Dons I have tried so far in Rakki Bowl the Truffle Gyu Don wins!

Value for money with the 1 for 1 Burpple Beyond membership!!! It was around $9 for this bowl of tempura don and the portions were really big. The tempuras were a variety of vegetables such as pumpkin, long beans, mushrooms and sweet potato and the meats were shrimp and chicken. Ordered it with the spicy level 3 (the highest one) but oops it was really too spicy for me I'll try the spicy level 2 next time. The tempuras were all really crisp and they also had some battered seaweed to complement it too. Definitely would go back even without Burpple Beyond and also it's way better than Tendon Ginza Itsuki in Tanjong Pagar (supposedly the best one in Singapore).

Came here at around 2.30pm near closing time and ordered the salmon wikiwiki 2.0 bowl and the hail caeser wrap. They gave us a complimentary cheesecake too! All for $15 (with burpple beyond 1 for 1) we got big portions and the salmon bowl was delicious there was kimchi guacamole and chunks of salmon on top of brown rice for the health conscious. The combination of the kimchi and the guac went surprisingly well! The caeser salad was stuffed with a lot of chicken lettuce cheesy croutons and anchovies. The complimentary cheesecake tasted like whip cream on dry biscuit but hey at least it was free.

Passed by MOS cafe at Raffles City and decided to try their Chili Crab Burger which was only in for a limited time. Usually wouldn't expect too much from an ordinary burger but the burger actually tasted like Chili Crab. Stuffed with vegetable tempura, crabstick and softshell crab this burger was damn worth it (ala carte $6.95)! The only issue I had was that they could have added more sauce but other than that everything was good including the hot crispy Mantou Buns ♥️

First time eating a bagel and I really liked the texture of the dough. It was chewy and different from the usual bread from bakeries here in Singapore. I got the grains lox bagel and I was happy to find whoel grains in the bagel bread itself and the outer side was pretty crisp and crunchy so it really complemented the chewy texture of the bagel. The bagel was stuffed with a lot of smoked salmon and beetroot and the cream cheese was really just slabbed inside it. I found the cream cheese a little bit too much because personally I have been cutting down on dairy foods. However if you love cream cheese and salmon and bread go for the lox bagel!!!
