Hiya guys!! Missed this space!! 😁 & off to a bad start already! Needed to get this off my chest i guess 😂 Recently opened @atmastelsg is a disappointing Italian restaurant using premium quality ingredients but with all round poor execution. The pizzas doesn't justify the price as many fine Italian restaurants charges under $30 for fresh wood-baked and much tastier pizzas too.

Pros: Premium quality ingredients for sure. Nice modern space. Portugese egg tarts were yummy though (but not the nicest i've had & extremely sweet)
🌈
Cons: Service was adequete at best, very poorly trained, somewhat "elitist" even. Pizza seemed reheated in the oven, not freshly made upon order. Premium ingredients, but what's the point if it's not tasty? It was so plain & bland. Severely underwhelming, probably overhyped on social media. Not a bad pizza, but very mediocre in taste & expensive.
🌈
Price: S$61.45 - had 1for1 promo in May. Truffle - $48++, Asparagus $36++

6th review! Def one of my FAV restaurants. The cold pasta is undoubtedly one of the best. Friend decided to be greedy & ordered an entire cold pasta for herself so i finally got to try a different pasta!! 😁

Pros: Service improved. Consistently good food. Generous servings. Everything u see in two plates is actually 1 serving. ❤ the cold pasta. Crab meat penne comparable, but still prefer @pastafrescadasalvatore 's version. White asparagus (seasonal) was superb! Very good lamb chops, t-bone beef & pistachio ice cream too.
🗻
Cons: DON'T attempt to finish the cold pasta by yourself, it's extremely jerlat. Apple tart not fantastic.

Price: S$202.44 - 2pax, finished everything

Chinatown pt outlet: When you are craving Jap but want a quick fuss-free bite, @genkisushisg is alright i guess 😃 Will only go for the aburi sushi's though.

Pros: Yummy sauce that goes with the aburi sushi's. Very fun as it's pretty high-tech with the ordering & clearing of plates. Cheap thrills 😂 Fast and efficient.
🐙
Cons: Very long q during peak hr. Super inconsistent. Low quality, low grade. Chawanmushi & tsubugai 😝👎

Price: S$36.02 - 2pax light meal

Wisma: One of my fav maki sushi's around! Everything i love in a roll 😍 My afternoon snack & always 1 plate for me! It's super jelat though, so if you wanna order other stuff, recommend to share instead. Have eaten this for years & for the 1st time today, it was "off" 😔 Something was amiss with the sauce, no smokiness. Unagi was fridge-cold & with bones. These were new for me, hopefully just one-off issues.

Pros: It's really shiok when done right! Love the pitan tofu too! Aburi & foie gras sushi's quite good.
🍣
Cons: Long q during peak hrs. Oily, cramped, squeezy place. Most food 👎 especially cooked dishes like fried rice/udon etc... Foie gras maki roll is a joke. Mediocre sashimi. Won't patronize here for Jap food - only the shiok maki.
🍣
Price: S$18 - shiok maki gen.1

Bugis Junction: Super blessed to have a belated bdae lunch treat from my dear friend ❤❤❤ @platypuskitchen is not someplace i would usually be interested in but enjoyed myself there 😃 Unique one-of-a-kind creations! Disclaimer: not a fan of fusion-y cuisine.

Pros: Good service. Truffles & uni flavours in our dishes. Very seafood-y menu 😆 But also have meats/pasta/snacks. Enjoyed the food in general. Crustacean bowl was super comforting to eat! I mean it's covered in CHEESE after all.....
💦
Cons: Tries hard but fails to deliver, much to be improved upon. Homemade pasta more like egg noodles. Crustacean bowl too ex - rather they replace the lumpy frozen lobster w other stuffs & charge cheaper. Fries were crisp but low quality type.
💦
Price: S$69.10

Farrer Park: Finally got to try these well-known beancurd tarts from @lecafe_sg! Can't help but feel a smidge disappointed by the way it was being raved about - was expecting much more. It's nice, but not "make orders rush down out of your way suffer bad attitide" nice.

Will i return/recommend: Yes/No

Pros: Cheap, only $1.25 each. Buttery crust, beancurd filling is not sweet & very smooth. They sell many other pastries - mixed beancurd tarts & giant pineapple tarts are popular too!
🐶
Cons: Can only get in boxes of 8. Crust too sweet.

Price: S$10/box

Pros: Very strong wok hei flavour. Crispy bits. Juicy oysters, even when fully cooked (i hate raw oysters). Super 💗 the aunty there, so friendly & polite.
🍃
Cons: Too much "dry" eggs. I'm not a fan of eggs.. & prefer if it's a bit undercooked or "wet". Starchy bits not chunky & abundant enough. Parking's a nightmare.

Price: S$5, 8, 10, mine is $5 plate

Pros: Thick chunky meat & chicken is cold w "jelly" (chicken thigh). The skin is very silky! Nice soup, fragrant rice.

In all honesty, food was good. Well executed and creative. But nothing that really stood out and blew my mind. There was no one dish that made me go OMG I'LL BE BACK FOR THIS. Perhaps it was designed to be so. Or just me that doesn't really fancy fusion.

Pork was a bit dry, i've had better & cheaper beef. Hamachi dish too sour, too much pickled radish.
Lovely place and service but cant help but feel it was overhyped.

Bugis: Long-time famous fish soup restaurant! Perfect when you have no appetite or cravings. Not a fan, just a place for a quick bowl of fish soup. But if you have not tried it before, it's worth trying at least once 😊 I do not recommend the other dishes.
