Chocolate S’mores Waffles [~$9] Looks real fancy with those cute marshmallow toppings and there is so much color in one plate. Sadly, waffles were meh and I’m glad not to end up like a unicorn puking rainbows.

Supreme S’moreffles ($35.50) This is one monster dessert consisting of three layers of waffles (including a red velvet and blue velvet waffle), large and mini marshmallows, whipped cream, a choice of chocolate sauce or maple syrup, and four scoops of ice cream of your choice. The waffles are only prepared when ordered, so you can be sure to get warm, soft and chewy waffles with crispy exteriors. I don’t think there was a difference in flavours in these three waffles, probably just a matter of colouring but this is an instagrammer’s dream for sure. Not a fan of the whipped cream or marshmallows as they just made this dessert a lot sweeter than it needed to be but it did make it look prettier. Unlike what’s depicted in the TSL video that keeps looping in the cafe, the marshmallows are not toasted, which was a bit of a disappointment as they weren’t melty or gooey. For the four scoops of ice cream, we went with: chocolate, coconut, earl grey and black sesame. All of the ice cream flavours were really good, with the exception of coconut which paled in comparison to the others as the coconut flavour didn’t come through although I could taste some grated coconut inside. The chocolate one wasn’t too sweet, while the earl grey ice cream was fragrant and very aromatic. My favourite of the four was the black sesame which was fragrant and not too sweet. This is a dessert meant for sharing with friends and family, and be sure to eat it fast because the ice cream melts and causes the waffles to become soggy! I wouldn’t necessarily order this again but I’m curious to try their sweet potato waffles because their waffle textures seem to be on point. Also, the ice cream here is good too so I’ll definitely be back!

Salted Egg Wings Since the closure of On The Table at Pasir Panjang, I haven’t really found a place that served up chicken wings similar to their famed chicken wings (apart from Lola’s cafe). Stumbled upon The Workbench Bistro and ordered their salted egg wings, which were delightfully battered and fried to crisp perfection. The eight wings are slathered in delicious salted egg sauce. This is an example of salted egg sauce done right as it’s creamy and the salted egg taste is prominent. Though not exactly the same as On The Table’s, the wings were delightfully crispy and I loved them even more with the salted egg sauce. I know where I’m coming when I want my chicken wing fix!

Burnt Chilli Chicken Rice Bowl ($10++) The Salted Plum is one of the more popular lunch places in the area for their value for money lunch deals on their rice bowls. The Burnt Chilli Chicken Rice Bowl is filled with generous chunks of charred chicken which packed serious heat while staying tender on the inside. Mix all of that together with the onsen egg and the rice to get a winning combination. Note: Rice bowls only available for weekday lunch

Lu Rou Fan 2.0: Electric Boogaloo The Salted Plum has become something of a cult hit within the grossly overpopulated Raffles Place/Boat Quay District. The (not necessarily 13) reasons why are easily evident, as their famous Lu Rou Fan 2.0 comes at $12 a bowl before the ten percent service charge kicks in, and adding on an appetizer and a bottomless house drink only extracts another $3.80 out of your wallet. It may not be cheap, but it’s certainly good. A sizable slab of pork belly that’s been slowly braised in a thick, savory sauce gets comfy atop a bed of freshly steamed Japanese rice alongside its bedfellows, which consists of some boiled bok choy and a runny half boiled egg. The whole hunk of pork belly is a definite upgrade from the humble slices of pork belly usually found on an un-pimped lu rou fan. The sauce was heartily herbaceous and sufficiently savory. Said sauce permeated deeply into the tremendously tender belly, which really only needed a spot of firm persuasion from a soup spoon and a pair of chopsticks to part like the Red Sea. The Salted Plum were being kind of miserly with the sauce, as there wasn’t nearly enough of it to properly flavor and lubricate the fluffy rice and bland bok choy. A little more sauce would’ve resulted in much more magic happening within the confines of the bowl, and that’s one thing that The Salted Plum should definitely improve upon. In fact, it’s probably the only thing that needs improvement with this pimped up sequel to the lu rou fan.

Not your usual Korean BBQ We ordered seafood pancake which was really nice and crispy. The grilled pork was not bad too, but no lettuce is given, have to pay for it. The portion is REALLY HUGE!

TERRIBLE KOREAN FOOD EVER MINGJIA III korea family restaurant is a TERRIBLE restaurant. The China lady whom I’ve ordered from was terrible. I’ve asked what’s inside the tofu soup and she ONLY told me in Chinese there’s CLAMS, PRAWNS and sotongs. SHE DID NOT EVEN MENTIONED THAT THERE ARE MUSSELS IN IT. I HAVE FOOD ALLERGY FOR MUSSELS and she refused to let me change. I understand that the kitchen is closed but she should rectify the damn situation. It made my dinner experience extremely unhappy and THE FOOD IS EXTREMELY PRICEY. Never going to patronise this shop again. BEWARE ORDERING FROM THE CHINA LADY. She can’t even speak a proper English sentence.

Tofu Stew Set ($10) Unlike what I heard about the crowd on weekdays, this place was utterly quiet slightly before meal time on a Saturday evening. What they serve here is Korean cuisine with a homely feeling. There’s a bento set where you could choose a meat dish and 2 vegetables at $6.50, there’s bibimbap, cold buckwheat noodles, seafood pancake, spicy tofu soup etc. I chose this non-spicy tofu stew set which comes with a choice of vegetable. A simple comforting stew of silky tofu blocks, enoki mushrooms, lots of cabbage, egg, some tiny pieces of squid tentacles and best of all, Sakura shrimps that contributed to the umami and sweetness of the soup. Nothing too complex, but I wish the vegetables were heated instead of serving cold.
