was craving some korean so we came here to this small restaurant just beside the famous Little Vietnam restaurant. i would say that this place ainโ€™t great for big groups bc itโ€™s q tiny and can feel pretty packed. but itโ€™s q affordable! (although quality cannot compare with the authentic korean restaurants, but still) dishes that i would highly recommend are ๐“๐ญ๐ž๐จ๐ค ๐Š๐ค๐จ ๐‚๐ก๐ข (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ++): sorta like fried tteok bokki and ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐œ๐ฒ ๐Ÿ๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐œ๐ก๐ž๐ž๐ฌ๐ž (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ++) (not pictured). the latter can get a bit jelat for some but iโ€™m all in ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ overall a decent budget korean place :-)

hidden in an industrial building just a short walk from paya lebar mrt, this place is a gem๐Ÿ’Ž . this place is generally famous for their bbq stuff bc they know how to grill โ€˜em. the ๐†๐ซ๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐ ๐ค๐ฎ๐ซ๐จ๐›๐ฎ๐ญ๐š ๐ฉ๐จ๐ซ๐ค (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ–.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) was charred so perfectly - it was fatty and melts in your mouth. we also managed to try their weekend brunch menu and would recommend the ๐๐จ๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐จ ๐ซ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++) Say real though, everything is worth it with the entertainer 1-1. Good food, good vibe โ˜บ๏ธ

Managed to get this Sunday buffet under 1-1 ๐ŸคŸ the variety isnโ€™t mind blowing, but quality is nubbad! I skipped the chilli crab & stir fried dishes but Iโ€™ll list down my favourites & definite order agains!! I must also say though their desserts are disappointing haha even though I LOVE desserts, I hardly ate their desserts. Just go straight for their mains srsly just whAcck!!!! Should order:
- Seafood: Prawn, Mussels, Scallop (skip the crab leg; also I donโ€™t like oysters so idk how nice they are)
- Sashimi
- All the teppanyaki
- Lobster mentaiyaki
- Prawn tempura
Overall, whack their expensive stuff (which are also the nicer ones to me) & def will still be worth ๐Ÿ‘

Old airport road is no doubt one of my favourite hawker centres with SO many good stalls to choose from. I know there is another more famous hokkien mee store, but this is my go to for hokkien mee here because the queue isnโ€™t as long. ๐Ÿ˜› Here is my decent $4 plate of hokkien mee - the noodles are cooked just right and their chilli is so spicy but shiOkz! ๐Ÿ’ฏ However, their prawns arenโ€™t really fresh, although they are quite generous with their ingredients esp if youโ€™re their last few customers. Still good ๐Ÿ‘

A small ice cream parlour to satisfy that late night craving๐Ÿฆ Given the small size of the shop, flavours are also a tad limited compared to other ice cream shops, but quality is ๐Ÿ‘. My favourite flavours would be the ๐…๐ข๐Ÿ๐ญ๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐๐ž๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ฅ ๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฒ and ๐‡๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ฅโ€™๐ฌ ๐ค๐จ๐ฉ๐ข ๐Ÿ’โ˜•๏ธ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ ๐ž๐š๐œ๐ก) The earl grey esp wasnโ€™t too strong on the tea taste and had a pleasant uniqueness. However, the outsides of the waffles werenโ€™t as crispy as we had hoped for them to be. Personal taste though! Also, the vibes here is ๐Ÿ˜ Chill & cozy with fairy lights.

I know Iโ€™m late but finally trying this place!! (bc every time I go itโ€™s a hella long queue) This. Was. HEAVENLY. I got the ๐‡๐š๐ง๐ ๐จ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ ๐ก๐ž๐ฅ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‘) with bacon, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and tater tots. It was a bit oily but worth every bit of cholesterol ๐Ÿ˜ The cheese was softly and generously melted on their all sorts bagel - a bagel not too soft or hard, and the additional bits on it enhanced its texture. Definitely on the pricier side but well worth ๐Ÿ‘

Was around the area so decided to try out this place! A classic ramen joint - nothing too fancy but not shabby at all. I got (one) of the cheapest ramens here, their ๐๐š๐ซ๐ข-๐ฎ๐ฆ๐š ๐ซ๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ—๐ŸŽ++), which is essentially their signature ramen (forgot the name) minus the egg ๐Ÿ˜‚ The ramen was pretty standard for a restaurant ramen - springy noodles and tender cha shu, and I liked that it wasnโ€™t tooo salty. But I think itโ€™s rather expensive: I only got 1 piece of meat and their ramen egg costs $2 more ๐Ÿ˜ข Itโ€™s a rather popular place though especially with families haha I think come here when youโ€™re balling ๐Ÿ’ธ

Right after our dinner at the Bedok Market place, we popped by this ice cream cafe to end off our day with some sweetness๐ŸฆIt was a pretty small place but they do have gOod ice cream. My favourite would be the pictured ๐‡๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ฅ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐œ๐จ๐จ๐ค๐ข๐ž ๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) as the flavours just come together so nicely ๐Ÿฅบ I also liked the ๐๐ซ๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐ฉ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐œ๐ก๐ข๐จ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ“) as it wasnโ€™t too sweet and had a real nutty taste to it. Definitely coming back, especially with the burpple 1-1 ๐Ÿค˜

Top quality Italian food for very affordable prices ๐Ÿ˜ Seriously, this stall at this hipster hawker center sells restaurant quality food but at half the price?? Pictured here is the ๐•๐จ๐๐ค๐š ๐œ๐ซ๐š๐› ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ญ ๐ฉ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ๐š (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ) with real and generous pieces of crab meat. The vodka didnโ€™t come out that strong but Iโ€™m personally fine with that. Pasta was al dente (yay!) and overall just super worth the price. Canโ€™t wait to try everything on the menu ๐Ÿคค

A low key but very impressive dessert place with the diversity of Taiwanese desserts they have ๐Ÿคค Itโ€™s like a cheaper black ball to me, and with the 1-1, itโ€™s SO WORTH. I got the ๐“๐š๐ซ๐จ ๐›๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐ฃ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐›๐ž๐š๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ‘.๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ) which tastes pretty standard and definitely satisfies that Taiwanese dessert craving. However, I would like to give the other desserts a try because Iโ€™ve heard their ๐Œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ค ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐๐๐ข๐ง๐  (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ‘.๐Ÿ”๐ŸŽ) is somewhat heavenly ๐Ÿคฉ

Not the most accessible location without a car, but I love this cafe bc itโ€™s chill and pets friendly! Pictured is their ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐œ๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐๐ฒโ€™๐ฌ ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ง (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ—.๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽ++) pasta that was filled with chicken breasts (so awesome for that protein need) with just a slight kick of spice. It kinda reminds me of a tom yum flavour though not exactly it, but anyway tastes great. Pasta is al dente as well which I love. Would love to try the other pastas here ๐Ÿคค
