Had porridge here for lunch on a Friday afternoon - the queue gets long from 12pm onwards, so we managed to beat the queue around 11.45. Do note that you need to top up to add egg and youtiao! I didn’t really like the youtiao though because it wasn’t crispy and felt kinda soft and chewy, unless it’s meant to be like that... I also found the porridge slightly bland by itself, had to add quite some soy sauce and pepper. I actually think I still prefer the Kovan market porridge. But good choice of wholesome food if you’re in the area!

This Hokkien mee is the more soupy kind, rather than the more fried, dry kind. I added all the chilli provided inside and it made it even better; very flavourful and yet packing a good punch. I’d say this is one of the better ones I’ve tried, but I still love chomp chomp’s most, and Yi Ji Hokkien Mee at Kovan (near Punggol nasi lemak) for their crazy chilli. 👅

Had the Oreo cheesecake flavour and taro flavour. Do note that the gelato deal means 1 for 1 on double scoops ($6.50)! I enjoyed the flavour of the oreo cheesecake but I felt that the texture was lacking, it wasn’t creamy and it was difficult to scoop up occasionally. The taro was more creamy but the flavour wasn’t exceptional, tasting rather ordinary instead of a strong, rich authentic taro I was looking out for. But overall decent ice cream here, will recommend with burpple’s 1 for 1 deal and if you are in the area.

Had the small green curry ($6), large Pad Thai ($9) and the Giant Phad Kapao (huge Thai basil chicken with egg and rice). The green curry and the basil chicken were really good and portions were huge, but we all found the pad thai too sweet for our liking. Will recommend if in the area!

The ban mian here is really good - I think the best part of it is the chilli that really packs a punch. The chilli isn’t just ordinary chilli sauce - it’s fresh chilli which really gives the ban mian some extra edge. It’s really spicy though (coming from a spice lover) so if you think you can’t take it, ask for less chilli! The noodles are soft and springy and I love the pork slices and meatballs.

I had this twice in a day (one for brunch and one for supper) so I can tell you that it is that good. 👅 I always get the big spicy because it packs so much flavour and the spice level is exactly how I like it. I heard the seafood one is good too! I’ve tried the original non spicy once but I found it really boring and ordinary compared to the spicy version.

Located at the old King Albert Park, Kindred Folk serves up delightfully good ice cream. I love so many of their flavours! My personal favourite is the roasted rice milk tea flavour, which is light yet rich with flavour. I’ve also tried the cereal milk, matcha gao and loaded cookies and cream and all of these are 10/10. I’d definitely recommend their ice cream to anyone, I’m in love for sure. 👏🏻

Had the small portion ($9) and it was amazing - the skin was incredibly crispy and the meat was juicy and tender. It paired extremely well with the mustard sauce on the side! The servers also help to cut the pork at your table.

Had to make another trip to IO to have their Italian fare and it remained phenomenal - the burrata was fresh, with generous servings of Parma ham, and the schiacciata was dripping with truffle cream. Service here was prompt and efficient as well! Do note that the last order is around 9.30pm as they close at 10pm.

I’ve been frequenting omote (previously Sushiro) since its opening, and their bara chirashi is consistently good and very value for money. They’ve upped prices in the few years since its opening, but I’d still say it’s very worth it. We had the upsized bowl so it’s larger than the regular, I’d recommend this size if you’re hungry!

Had the Tacos, sangria, a side of potatoes and a chicken quesadilla. The fish and beef tacos were to die for! Ambience here is wonderful and service is quick and attentive. It’s no surprise that this place was packed to the brim on a Saturday night, and despite the food here being more pricey ($20++ per person on average, when sharing), it’s well worth the visit.

Located in the heart of Ang Mo Kio, near Ang Mo Kio polyclinic and also a stone’s throw from the MRT, this could be the most glorious bowl of yong tau foo I’ve had yet. The ingredients are fresh, prices are very affordable and the best part is the rich and flavourful soup that blew me away. Many mediocre yong tau foo places have pretty bland soups but the soup here is to die for.
