New breakfast menu at KARA! Avocado toasts are usually not my first pick, but theirs was done so nicely that it was easily our unanimous favourite that day. Looked simply like a sourdough topped with mashed avocado, a sunny-side up and kale chips, but the sourdough was actually done like a grilled cheese sandwich! They also added corn into the thick avocado mash which gave that extra fun touch of sweetness alongside the savoury cheesiness. Found the dishes more on the pricey side though, but they’re on Burpple Beyond now too for some items.

Thank you @karacafesg for having us & @burpple for the kind invite! ✨

A decent plate of chicken rice. Rice and soup were quite flavourful, but chicken was a little bland and tough. Skip the mediocre braised egg.

Took leave and went on our own mini food trail yesterday. One of our stops was the new Mad Roaster that sits on the 2nd floor of Amoy Food Centre. Included on each cup of their lattes and espresso-based coffees, is a story and a customised coloured logo by the refugees community they aim to support. The matcha latte was a lovely cup that you can request for less sweet, or top up to swap for oat milk.

On top of these drinks, they also serve freshly made brioche on rotation. It was the Chocolate Babka’s turn yesterday and what a delight it was. If you’re having it there, it’s served warm with a spread of custard and topped with crunchy salted-chocolate crumbles - had a crisp exterior and chocolatey fluffy centre that was sweetened just right! Our slice was thinner than usual, so the kind owners offered us two instead. Can’t wait to head back to catch the original and cinnamon brioche!

Loved the al dente noodle texture here with the appetising tang of the chilli vinaigrette. It had a pretty good heat as well. Had the Ebiko Prawn Paste Shrimp Ramen ($15.50) as our other bowl, hence picked the prawn dumplings as the topping for this. The bowl came with 4 of them! I actually liked these big dumplings much more than their prawn paste, for it was generously filled with juicy prawns and pork. They were firm and crunchy, and were of much better value!

Freshly baked on order, these were super fragrant! Was a tiny bit cakey in the middle but still an enjoyable treat that were not sweet.

Have been wanting to try Le Shrimp and recently snagged a ShopBack voucher for this bowl at half price, so I finally got around to having a meal there! Was expecting a better crunch of the prawn paste, but they definitely used a good amount of prawns in them. Thought our noodles were a little overcooked and could have done with a better bite, but what won us over was that broth. It was thick, slightly creamy and rich, packed with the sweetness from the prawns. Also enjoyed that touch of char in the broth. I’ve got to say that it can get a bit heavy after awhile - had this shared with the dry chilli vinaigrette ramen, and I’d recommend to do that too!

After a failed lunch that day, we went back to our trusty spot for noodles we know will satisfy. Tried something new this time, the soup noodles! Noodles in the soup sadly looses a bit of that chew, but their Japanese-like (yes Japanese! 😂) soup is nice to slurp on. Dumplings are the bite-sized kind, a slightly thicker skin but I like that it’s q. Filling is seasoned well, but if I had to choose, I like the chives pork one more, just cause I’m a huge fan of chives!

A9 is a very no-frills spot, so no fancy toppings, but it’s simple, comforting and the food is always whipped up quickly. Ps. Skip the mala and spicy savoury noodles + tea leaf eggs.
