Breakfast Done Right! We happened to discover Oh Deli quite by accident and what an accident it was. From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Even at a first glance, the menu isn't fancily done. But what it lack on these aesthetics was made up 100% by the food. Omelette ($10.90) Freshly made and piping hot, the omelette isn't your fold over, elegant omelette. These are more, cook-in-a-skillet, hearty, home made omelettes and it tasted like it too. Made with really fresh ingredients, it was lightly seasoned and allowed each ingredient to be nicely highlighted. Simple, fuss free, hearty and satisfying. Egg Island ($14.50 + $4.00 for additional grilled mushroom) This feels like the ultimate comfort British breakfast. Baked beans were nicely cooked, soft without being mushy. The poached egg was perfect. And I mean PERFECT! The white wrapped around the yolk beautifully and the yolk was nice, thick and runny. Sour dough was pretty good without being too sour (which I personally prefer). The mushrooms were well cooked with minimal seasoning but was packed with flavor and the sausage was so so so good. Not overly seasoned, the sausage had a great meat to fat ratio and was nicely coarse. Yummy! The food here was very well done. Slightly on the mid-price side due to most of their ingredients being organic or free ranged (which is better than paying for for "fancy" all day breakfasts) but what they did was make a good hearty breakfast... well... good and hearty without being overly fancy or hipsterish. Will definitely recommend you check out this place if you're around the area and Oh! (All pun intended), it's also a grocery store so you can grab some really great ingredients while waiting for your food to be served too!

Ham And Cheese Sandwich ($7.90 Takeaway) Premium Italian leg ham with some solid cheddar compressed together between 2 buttered slices of multigrain toast. A take on the classic sandwich really does not get better than this!

Salt Pork Tinga Gets Me Tinga-lin’ Chimichanga? Or chimi-chuckitinthebin? Chimichanga has been around for a while, and after devouring their Salt Pork Tinga chimichanga ($12 NETT, yeah bwoi), I can see why they’ve managed to keep the fiesta going. So, a chimichanga is basically a burrito that’s been MURICA’d. Or in layman terms, it’s been deep fried. Of course deep frying makes everything better, and in Chimichanga’s case, it made a decent burrito even better. The thin tortilla that encased the filling turned into a charmingly crispy, glorious golden carb cocoon of deliciousness, and the ambrosial amarillo rice inside was just so satisfying to the soul. I was surprised by just how mildly flavoured the salt pork tinga was, especially since I expected it to be a full on intense flavour fiesta. The friendly guy serving me (might’ve been the owner or manager, I didn’t think to ask) explained that they did try the very traditional, straight outta Cholula recipe, but Singaporeans simply weren’t ready for the mind blowing savouriness. Still, the pork was tender and juicy, and all it really needed was some of the hot sauce sitting on the table to make tinga great again. For only twelve bucks, this was quite the steal. It’s a little small, but it’s a perfect stomach filler when chased down by a majestic mojito, or a frozen margarita. Don’t be that foo who sleep on this bad boy, ese.

I can NUTELLA how much I love me some MALLOWdrama! ❤ . Featuring the Marshmallow and Nutella Chimichanga ($8) from Chimichanga which comes with gooey chewy marshmallows and sweet nutella wrapped in a soft toasted flour tortilla. To finish, a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🍦 is placed atop the chimichanga which is then generously drizzled with chocolate sauce 🍫 . Slice into this sweet chimichanga and you'll reveal a gooey marshmallow mess that's all ready for the digging! Ready, set, spoon! 🤤

Salt Pork Tinga Chimichanga Chimichangas are deep-fried burritos. That should seal the deal. Don't be fooled by the liberal salsa verde and crema though, they didn't add much. The main problem is the slightly small size.

Decent, If Overrated Joint After hearing friends rave about this place and reading 5-star reviews of it on Google, Dumpling Darlings had a lot to live up to for me. Sad to say but the food there wasn’t quite as darling as I thought it’d be. I got the lunch set ($16) which included noodles (I got miso mushroom), 4 pieces of dumplings (went with the smoked duck) and a drink (had the longan osmathus pu er). 🍜: firm but not quite chewy like Eng’s. I appreciated the generous helping of mushroom and the hanjuku egg that came along with it, but it was basically atas bak chor mee. At least the portion size was just right. 🥟: nothing quite special about how the dumpling was prepared — it tasted like smoked duck rolled up in wanton skin. That they were dripping laying in a pool of grease didn’t quite help. 🍹: possibly the saving grace of the set, it was handcrafted upon order and tasted lovely. Was it worth $18.80 (with GST and service charge)? Not quite. Food was alright and service was patchy, with staff complaining right in front of customers sat at the bar. It’s worth a try if you’re in the area, but I wouldn’t make a special trek here for it — wanton or bak chor mee from the hawker/food court can easily hit the spot without the steep price. 💸

Quaint Dumpling Place!! Ordered Pierogi (6pc), Gyoza (6pc) and Sichuan Noodle 8/10 Enjoyed the noodles the best out of all 3. The sauce was not too spicy and paired well with the minced meat and other condiments. texture of the noodles were perfectly bouncy and chewy. I liked the gyoza much more than the pierogi, which was quite cheesy/creamy

yummy noodles + dumplings came here with 2 friends for dinner. ordered the party platter as my friends have not tried this before. we were allowed to change some of the flavours which is great. the szechuan is a favourite among us! we agreed that the original is too strong on the vinegar, making it quite sour, and over powering the taste of the pork filling and overall dumpling. momo's curry was pretty odd... maybe because the texture of the impossible meat did not sit well with our taste buds. next, the noodles! egg noodles from dumpling darlings are my favourite bc it's flavourful, the texture is bouncy, and overall not too dry. mushroom noodle is my fav, followed by the szechuan minced meat noodle. lastly, the longan osthmanthus pu er iced tea is amazing and so refreshing, all 3 of us unanimously gave it a 5/5. overall 4/5!!

Halloumi Fever ($18) Hello you, hallo mi. For all veggie lovers, this one's for you! Sideways has their Halloumi Fever, which comes with a choice of base (Couscous & Mixed Peppers), Roasted Aubergine, Zucchini, grilled Padron Peppers, artichokes, Burrata & hummus! You'd never think of filling up on this but wow, each piece of item is grilled perfectly with a hint of char with every bite.

Ribeye Bowl ($20) Having steak for breakfast is never too indulgent, right? Available only during the weekends on their brunch menu, pop by Sideways for their Ribeye Bowl between 10am to 4pm on Sat & Sun to taste this goodness by yourself! This bowl comes packed with your choice of base (this was Mixed Greens +$2), topped with Mixed Grilled Vegetables, Avocado Dip, Grilled Padron Peppers, Poached Egg & of course, a perfectly medium rare steak. You'd be surprised at how full you'd be after this bowl as it does fill you to the brim, in terms of flavour & stomach space.

Without doubt, the best grain bowl I’ve ever had. Period. There’s just NOTHING about this Ribeye Bowl ($20) we didn’t enjoy. First off you’ve got the generous portion of well-seasoned Australian ribeye grilled to a perfect medium-rare, super juicy and succulent, boasting those crisp, charred edges we (at least I) all love. Then there’s the creamy and fresh avo dip (very much like a pureed guacamole), poached eggs with the gorgeous runny yolk, and man those soft and tender grilled aubergines were downright tasty. Mix it all up before taking a big bite, and I promise you'll practically fall into nirvana. If anything, their cauliflower rice could do with some improvement. It was way too soft which, when just sitting in all the steam and juices, made it all the more mushy. Also I’m pretty sure the components in our bowl weren’t exactly the ones described on the menu, but idk could be a teething issue with their newly launched lunch service 🤷🏻‍♀️

Happy Hour with A View Had some time to kill in the vicinity - chanced upon Caffe Fernet's happy hour & decided why not. Predictably, the King Cole Old Fashioned ($15++) spoke to me. Bulleit Bourbon, Fernet Branca liqueur, Angostura Bitters. Totally up my alley! Service is quick & by golly, this drink is a stiff one. I like that, because at the end of it all, I don't find it too diluted & meh. Holds its weight throughout. I happily sipped on it & thought about life as I took in the nice view of MBS, having been allocated an al fresco seat facing the waters. I was here in the evening, towards the later half of Happy Hour (3 - 7:30PM). I'd imagine that the sun would be quite in your face had I been here earlier in the day... So try to sit indoors during lunch time. Quite a boisterous crowd on Thursday evening. I will be back & perhaps the next time I'll order off their dinner menu. I have my eye on some pastas... 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Indoor seats available (not air-conditioned) ☀ Al fresco seats available 🖥 Accepts reservations - I used Chope 📶 Free WiFi available 💦 Water is not chargeable

Housemade Ricotta Ricotta, chestnut honey, thyme ($14) - the ricotta was incredibly fresh and creamy and went perfectly with the crispy, slightly charred sourdough. Again, my only gripe is that it was a smaller portion than expected for the price - I was hoping for more bread and ricotta as it was gone in a few bites. From pictures from other reviews for Caffe Fernet on Burpple, the amount of ricotta and the number of slices of sourdough (originally 3!) has certainly decreased, and this left me feeling pretty disappointed.

Lemon Spaghetti Spanner crabmeat, saffron, parmigiano ($29) - this was a really light, well-balanced pasta, with just a hint of lemon and a really strong crab flavour. I was looking forward to a larger portion of crab though - it was scattered about in meagre, tiny little pieces and left the pasta dish feeling rather plain and slightly underwhelming for the price. I’d say you could order this to try or share, but it’s definitely not the most value for money dish here.
