Truth be told, I didn't intend to order this. I thought the all-brown cookie was the brookie and this double coloured one was the sea salt chocolate chip, not the other way around. So you can imagine my surprise when my order arrived.

But I guess things do happen for a reason - I ended up really liking this. Their cookies are chewy on the inside. I love that they use quality chocolate, both for the "brownie" part of this cookie, as well as for the molten Valrhona chocolate stuffing inside. It's good stuff.

Price: $3.50

I was quite impressed! Perhaps the first time was a miss, but I finally get why people like it.
Things I liked: grass jelly, aiyu jelly, round pearl-like jelly bursts (all flavourful with appropriate textures).
Things I didn't like: sweet potato/assorted chewy balls (more floury than chewy), tiny rectangular jelly cubes (had an odd sweet flavour). They are very reasonably priced compared to their other Taiwanese dessert competitor, and I understand why they are popular.

Price: $2.90-$3.50

Love how they pack the ingredients and the broth separately. The broth was sweet but I didn't feel too thirsty after, which was a good sign!
Price: $10.90

Made mini fruit tarts with a crumbly buttery crust, cream cheese topping and assorted fruits (grape, lychee, blueberries). #halfeatenblogbakes #homecooked #homemade #tart #dessert #fruit #burpple

Have eaten this about 3 times in the past month and I think this is quickly becoming one of my favourite korean fried chicken joints, and perhaps the best fast-food one. We got the 18 piece deal, and opted to have 9 pieces soy garlic and 9 pieces yangneom flavour. The soy garlic (pictured here) is both savoury and sweet, with the right amount of seasoning such that it's neither too salty nor too sweet and also not overly sticky. Non-spicy as well! There's plenty of meat on those bones. Was always hesitant to try because their name sounds so gimmicky, but they are pretty legit.

Price: $20.50 for 18 pieces

This was really bad. Possibly one of the worst ayam panggangs I have ever had. It was dry, hard and not particularly tasty. Quite pricey too. Only the sambal chilli was nice. I think not just the ayam pang gang, but the chef also pang gang (stop work). Price: $5.50 (minus 50c without rice, add 30c for takeaway)

First pic is the lemon curd and pie crust. Second pic is the fluffy whipped meringue. Didn't add enough sugar to balance the tartness of the lemons, but thankfully the pie crust was beautifully buttery and the curd a good consistency.

Despite them being named after the famed Vietnamese noodle soup, we couldn't resist ordering the dry rice vermicelli with lemongrass grilled beef. It ended up being a huge hit. Fresh shredded lettuce, fragrant beef slices, tangy vinaigrette sauce and springy rice vermicelli made for a refreshing combo.

I was also super impressed with their delivery speed. They delivered on time (1 hour after I placed my order), despite the fact that I ordered during dinnertime and their store is not near my house. Impressive!

Price: $12

Thick, juicy chicken coated in crispy buttermilk batter. Let's just say this was so good I didn't even get a bite before my family finished it all.
Price: ~ $10

Had this at the end of last year, not knowing that things would be so different this year. I always get this because I'm not a big fan of meatballs and it's a nice accompaniment to the chicken wings/other mains. Simple, basic pasta - not for the carnivorous.

Price: $3.90 (i think prices increased)

My sister made her own concoction of crushed digestive biscuits, melted dark chocolate and cocoa powder (amongst other things). Not the prettiest but looks can be deceiving! Was a yummy surprise.

An oldie but a goodie. I always order the same thing at Guzman. The pulled beef is stringy and tender. The rice is fluffy and aromatic. The salsa is juicy but not too tart. Asked for no black beans this time and they were very nice to accommodate my request yay!
Price: $11.90
