Washed our meal down with this Osmanthus Sour Plum drink. Was expecting it to be very sweet like how some Chinese drinks are, but glad it wasn’t. It was a nice sweet and sour, quite refreshing with hints of the osmanthus!

Tried the 烤香菇 - Mushrooms ($1.50), 烤干豆腐卷 - Beancurd Roll ($1.50), 烤四季豆 - String Beans ($1), 鸡中翅 - Mid Wings ($1.50). Hits and misses for their skewers, and found the rub generally too salty.

Was quite comforting at first, but the flavour got flat a little fast. The soup was also absorbed by the noodles quite quickly.

Very decent dumplings that we enjoyed! Was excited to try this since the usual dumpling fillings are leek or cabbage pork. Sourness of the sauerkraut was a nice change and it gave an additional crunch to the dumplings. They also have their dumplings in Leek Egg, Leek Pork and Cabbage Pork at the same price.

Wanted to try something new apart from the usual Dong Bei Ren Jia, and found ourselves here at Dong Bei Shao Kao Jiao Zi Guan just a few doors down. Was pleasantly surprised when we stepped in, the restaurant was clean and pretty nicely renovated.

Really liked their rendition of Dong Bei Da La Pi! It had a good balance of spice, savoury-sweet and nutty sesame sauce, and was lighter compared to others I’ve tried. They also had a generous heap of thinly striped cucumber, beancurd skin and carrots which provided a very refreshing crunch. Definitely will get this again!

Something new on the menu, these mini steamed tapioca dumplings had minced pork and shrimp wrapped in, served with their sweet fish sauce. You can request for them to come spicy or not.

I’ve had their Bánh Nậm - Vietnamese Flat Dumpling (3 for $6.90) before at the Plaza Sing outlet. These 2 dishes are almost the same, but the flat dumplings are otah-shaped and bigger sized. I’m a huge fan of chewy textured food and the texture here was great, but a pity that these mini ones had very little filling. The latter had a better ratio, hence found it more enjoyable!

Tried something new during our most recent visit to Green on Earth, the Ten Herbal Soup was one of the daily specials. It was strong of herbal notes though a touch sweeter than I would have liked. Would be nice to more a little more variety of ingredients other than mock meat chunks.

Wildfire’s seasonal Uni Ebi Burger! Well-toasted brioche buns with a thick and crispy prawn patty (would have liked this juicier but thumbs up to the generous use of whole prawns), tartar, shredded lettuce, generous squid ink aioli and the star of the show - 2 rows of creamy bafun narabi uni that the staff serve fresh out of the uni box on to your burger at your table. Quality was pretty good. Last 6 days to the end of this seasonal burger that they only serve 20 portions a day till 28 Feb.

Really enjoyed our meals at Cô Chung’s original outlet in Plaza Sing, but was quite disappointed with the food here at their new Boat Quay outlet. Not sure if it was an off day when we visited, but they’re still pretty new. Hopefully they work out and make the necessary tweaks. Vibes, atmosphere and service were great though, it was a good spot for catch up with friends!

One of the mains we had was the Vietnamese Broken Rice - came with marinated grilled pork, egg meatloaf and sunny side up on broken rice, with a side of fish sauce. The meats were unfortunately quite dry and tough, though we did like the marination. Would also preferred for it to be served a little hotter.

Thought their Salted Chilli Prawn ($3.36 each, min 2) skewers sounded very interesting, but they were sold out, so we went with The Chicken Tender ($1.60 each, min 2) and Mixed Pork ($1.70 each, min 2) instead. They also have Beef Tender ($1.90 each, min 2) available. Was disappointed in these though, as both could be much less tough and dry. The marination itself wasn’t too bad but pretty average for its price.

Drinks are pretty pricey here, mostly ranging around $5-$6+. Went with this Iced Lime Milk for something more different and actually really enjoyed the distinctly tangy and refreshing sips. Reminded me a lot of a particular yoghurt drink!

Stole a sip of my friend’s milk coffee and it was super gao - even though by the time I tried it, it was when the ice cubes already melted in quite a bit 😂 I’m not a coffee drinker but found it quite fragrant too. On their menu, they share that their milk coffees are made with 50ml of concentrated coffee with no water added! You can also opt for it to be served hot.
