Exquisite Kueh Salat That Is In A Class Of Its Own I am not usually a fan of “Kueh Salat” but this beauty has got to be the best I‘ve had. The most striking thing about it is the kaya. Unlike the bright to deep green shade found in many others, this one by Executive Chef-owner Malcolm Lee of One MICHELIN Starred Candlenut Peranakan restaurant is a pale green, and is ultra silky soft and smooth. As mild as the kaya custard looks, it wields surprisingly enormous fragrance, richness and flavour as it’s made from freshly-squeezed coconut milk and pandan juice. Married perfectly with it is steamed “pulut” or glutinous rice that hits the right notes in ratio, moisture and texture. Together, they are formidable enough to have well-meaning diet plans and iron-clad resolutions melt away like butter on a hot pan. My mum will be the first to vouch for that 😂. If you are keen to try this Kueh Salat (and I recommend you do), please visit Candlenut‘s website to place your order.

Sambal Sotong OHMY these were one of the BEST sotong I had in my life. They were ridiculously soft and fresh. I’ve never had sotongs this fresh!!!! And it was lathered with a generous amount of sambal which was super delicious and fragrant. It’s not overly salty or MSG-packed. Could really taste the effort into this handmade sambal paste. Lovely pairing with my 🍚!!

Hidden gem at JCUBE Ice cream was very yummy, and there beautiful plating of the set. Waffles were crispy on the outside and soft inside. Also ordered the Mint Chocolate which was not sweet and its portion was a huge cup! Overall a very pleasant experience. Will be back again.

Guilty swirl ($4.50), Pistachio Please (premium flavour, $5.50). 1-for-1 with #burpplebeyond! My 100th #burpplebeyond deal went to.... the newly added partner @madlygood_official! It’s been a while since a decent gelato parlour popped up in Jcube. Situated right beside the ice skating rink, you can have gelato, waffles and coffee while watching people ice skate. There were flavours that I would have liked to try, but weren’t available as we were told that the flavours rotate every 2-3 days. Still, there were interesting flavours like the Guilty Swirl that the boyf had, which was basically cream cheese with Oreo cookies. It started off with the cocoa and cookie bits of Oreo, before ending off with a pleasant, lingering tang of the cream cheese. I had the Pistachio Please, made with milled Italian pistachios. There were real pistachio bits in there, but what was perplexing was the overall saltiness of the flavour, somewhat like that of a salted caramel flavour that was a bit of a shock to me. Not sure if I liked my pistachio gelato like that, but one thing for sure, I would have preferred it to be richer in the nuttiness. Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 single gelato scoops at the price of 1! Join me by signing up for a 30% off premium Burpple Beyond membership and access 1-for-1 deals at over 500 curated restaurants!

Fabulous burgers in the East Not the most grubby of burgers I’ve shot, but I was WAY to excited to tuck in to really fiddle with the shot. I’ve made no secret of my love for TSO burgers after my first visit, but before I could return they announced a temporary closure for relocation. And then came covid. After 2 painful months of waiting, they’re back with a bigger, more impressive lineup of burgers 🤤 Here’s their Outcast Possible Meats which comes with a charcoal grilled beef patty, chunks of woodfire smoked lamb, tomato and chimichurri sauce between their fluffy af brioche buns. Now, I’d tell you straight up that their buns are better than even some of established restaurants’. That hasn’t changed. And when you put that with beautifully executed meats and a fabulously herbaceous chimichurri with a good dose of acidity — burger perfection. Can I also say that their tempura fries are AMAZING??

Has potential, just needs a lot more refinement. I’ve always been a fan of ugly delicious food, and seeing their Moluccas Beef Ribs making its round on ig I was really excited to try it. I have to admit that it’s really really promising and the flavours pack a lot of punch, but there’re a couple of things in my books that made this fall short. First off, it could be a one-off I’m not sure cause everyone says otherwise but, our ribs were not fall-off-the-bone fork-tender melt-in-your-mouth kinda luscious (see how we needed a knife there). Which is how I like my ribs. It was flavourful for sure and I love that blackened spice crust on top, but the meat was too tough and chewy for me to yell a big hurrah. Next: I understand the need to speed things up with shortcuts in a fast-paced hawker setting, but that doesn’t mean I’d enjoy the results ie. the grainy, instant-mix kinda cold potato mash that came with the ribs. With how much effort’s placed into the meat, the subpar mash on the side was quite a letdown. And while I liked that they offered a light salad on the side, I’d rather they leave out the store bought Thai dressing which was way too sweet. Not the most balanced when seeing that the ribs also had a slightly sweet glaze. Sounds like there’re a lot of 🙅🏻‍♀️ here, but tbh the ideas behind this dish are fantastic, and I really believe a little refinement would take this a long way!

Genuinely surprised at how great their burgers are! I arrived with enough apprehension and a healthy dose of skepticism, not knowing what to expect of this hawker burger stall I’ve heard so much about; and I left with my heart full and tummy utterly satisfied. I’m not in the least bit exaggerating when I say this humble little stall shames even some of the bigger burger restaurants around Singapore. We had this Smoked Dried Chipotle and Guacamole ($10.90) with cheese ($1): not exactly hawker prices, but very reasonable considering the ingredients and quality. What you’re looking at is a kickass juicy beef patty, grilled over a charcoal fire till it’s a lovely medium with a beautiful smokey char on the outside; some smoked chipotle peppers (very much like regular peppers packing a slight punch); tomato; a smear of guacamole; alfalfa sprouts; and fabulously toasted brioche buns. It’s delicious, it’s hearty, it’s packed with such smokiness from the grill — it’s basically everything a good burger should be. There’re a few things I can pick at of course (not a fan of the store-bought potato chips on the side as well as alfalfa sprouts, I’ve never liked them they’re so redundant in a dish), but I can promise you that you won’t leave this stall feeling anything less than satisfied.

Butter Chicken Set I was surprised with the amount of chicken meat given and the butter sauce was generous also; even though the taste could get overwhelming. Get the set for the side dish and soup for only $10.90. Or even better and value for money with Burpple Beyond.

Affordable Dinner Set At Funan ($11.90) Decent and affordable dinner set for 2 person. The meat portion were pretty generous, egg soup and seaweed soup came in a small bowl. The salted egg chicken was slightly too sweet for my liking. Overall, a simple and filling meal if you are looking for cheaper meal option at funan other than the food court.

disappointing return visit Popped by for dinner when I was in the area! Am a little bit bummed that the refreshed burpple beyond deals have time restrictions. Got the dinner set ($10.90), which comprises a main, side and soup. The selection of sides have changed, so we tried the potato salad and the fungus salad. Both were lightly marinated but somewhat unsatisfying - I’d say to give the fungus a miss as it was rubbery. Was also disappointed to see that the presentation of the meal has changed.. the portion of meat given seems much smaller in these disposable bowls. I’ve raved lots about the butter chicken (review on 29 Oct 2019) but this was a major let down! The taste is starkly different from what I had previously - sickly sweet, flat and lacking dimension. Majority of the pieces were of batter and fat, with few chunks of meat. The marinated beef slices fared much better. Although a little salty, the meat was tender and well seasoned. Also enjoyed the roasted capsicums!

Don’t Ignore The A La Carte Items. Besides the Bento Sets, I added on three items from the a la carte menu ($10 each) for my family to share. The “Burnt Chilli Chicken” was easily my fave. Charred in a pan with Szechuan peppers and Chinese chives, the pieces of thigh meat were mouthwateringly good. In second place, the “Crunchy Fried Oyster Mushrooms and Smashed Baby Potatoes”. This was dangerously addictive, due in part to the coating of piquant plum powder. The “Braised Cabbage with Bamboo Shoots and Minced Pork” was decent but I‘d have preferred the bamboo shoots a little less hard.

Your Tastebuds Can Still Travel To Taiwan. T R E A T With the extension of the “Circuit Breaker” till 1st June 2020, it looks like we aren’t able to travel anywhere for a bit longer. However, our tastebuds can still go places. Like to Taiwan for instance, thanks to @thesaltedplumsg’s Takeaway/Delivery Menu of Taiwanese delights. My family and I got to try their Bento Sets recently, and we found the food appetising as well as great value for money because of the generous portions. Unlike the classic “Lu Rou Fan” or #卤肉饭 where the pork belly is minced or cut into very small pieces, their Bento Set serves it in a large slab, albeit a very tender one as it’s been braised for hours with a mix of spices. This also means both the meat and sauce are fragrant and tasty. If you are a fan of fried food, you won’t be disappointed if you zero in on their Fried Chicken Bento Set ($11.90). The batter used to coat the boneless chicken is well-seasoned, which makes all the difference in my opinion. Besides the above, The Salted Plum also does Taiwanese Style “Zi Char” dishes such as “Mei Cai” (preserved mustard greens) simmered in a house-made soy mixture with pork belly and shiitake mushroom. They’ve even designed a “Family Set” with “Red Tea Jelly” dessert and drinks ($68) as a convenient and complete meal for a few people. For deliveries, a flat $10 is charged for a minimum spend of $30. Orders above $60 are delivered free. As food is prepared fresh and requires time for delivery, customers are encouraged to place their orders at least 2 hours before mealtime via call or WhatsApp at: 𝟲𝟳𝟮𝟭 𝟵𝟯𝟵𝟴 P.S.
