Japanese Dashi Noodle Basic [$15.90] Enishi has a simple menu of two items and between both, I liked the dashi noodles more. We went with the basic bowl that came with a piece of smoky chashu, two slices of smoked duck, Japanese fish cake and a generous helping of diced onions. However, while their wide and thick buckwheat noodles worked well in the Dan-Dan Noodle bowl, I’d prefer a thinner rendition here that would carry the flavours of the broth better. That aside, the clear broth was definitely the star of the bowl - it was light yet very flavourful without being over salty, and had a refreshing touch of yuzu!

Dan Dan Men ($17.9++) Dan dan men, the most expensive item here, came loaded with ingredients: 2 kinds of pork, puckled radish, onions, ajitama, fried shallots, and some greens. One of the pork chunks were a tad too sweet for my liking, but when mixed they all came out fragrant and tasty. The peanut taste was super duper strong, and that's why the dashi broth came in handy to dilute it slowly as you are getting full (or jelat). I chose medium spicy and level 3 for the mala spices, but found it quite subtle. Could have chosen very spicy with more mala spices if you want more kicks. Not a cheap bowl of noodle for sure, but I love how bold the flavour is.

Japanese Ramen with Dashi Hole-in-a-wall ramen shop nestled in the second level of International Plaza, Enishi successfully brought me back to my vacay days in Japan with only 9 seats and an open kitchen concept. Enishi currently only serves 2 dishes- dan dan men and ramen with dashi broth. I personally enjoy the chewy buckwheat noodle used here although most people may find the flat shape unusual. The dashi broth is my favourite of the two. Flavour was strong yet comforting. The aburi pork belly is worth a shout-out too! Overall, it was a comforting bowl that easily pleases your tastebuds.

This would probably be 1 of our favourite finds around the Amoy-Telok Ayer area, amongst the countless restaurants. Interestingly, they weren’t as packed as some others although we felt they were as good, if not better than some. We liked that their appetisers were priced reasonably and came in small portions so we could try more varied dishes. We enjoyed what we had, grilled prawn, crab croquettes and especially the grilled octopus that was on point. We picked their spiced glazed pork belly which was spectacular and yummy good, flavourful and great meat-fats proportions that was pleasant to enjoy. There were more appealing sounding items on their mains, pasta and risotto list for a sumptuous meal. Similarly for their appetisers that we liked. But we were glad we saved space for dessert as the red wine poached pear we had was really memorable to end with. We would recommend to wine and dine here after having some of their cocktails and absolutely loving them. Have a little chat with Mr Star who may concoct some special mix in your drinks if you’re not going for the wine. The interior of @mpiresingapore was chic and cosy, for a formal date or comfortable gathering. The final highlight: members of @burpplebeyond would be delighted to enjoy the incredible valuable deals here. So sharing this good find, hopefully not at the expense of being harder to get a table next time.

Seafood Risotto The tomato-based Seafood Risotto ($24) from Mpire comes with octopus, tiger prawns, mussels and crabmeat, and I must say that the taste and texture are on point. The risotto is flavourful, packed with umami and the seafood is chunky and fresh. Although the portion is not big, I’m not complaining given that there is an one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond:) Wouldn’t mind returning to try out the other items on the menu!

Random found a newly open cafe in central.. HOT FILTERED COFFEE: Strong brew coffee; not acidic; suppose to be towards fruity side but my poor coffee taste bud cannot taste that; nonetheless a good cup of coffee.. PORTOBELLO SANDWICH: Portobello mushroom, cheese & greens sandwiched between 2 toast; simple and flavorful; thin and well-toasted bread; mushroom is juicy.. BIBIMBAP NOODLE: Cold and refreshing Korean style glass noodles; simple yet flavorful and appetising; mild spicy.. MILK OOLONG TEA: Well balanced milk and tea taste; light taste; milk fragrance and milk after-taste.. Overall a satisfied meal in a cosy and simple-looking cafe; very good place to chill during tea time instead as food portion is very small; quality > quantity; service is excellent.. #platform #burpple #coffee #tea #portobellosandwich #bibimbapnoodle #jaslynfoodinstagram

For a Midday Respite in the CBD Stop by Amoy Street for a midday tipple or a refreshing pick-me-up in this aesthetic cafe. Get their sweet and creamy Ice Matcha Latte ($7) or the tangy Pear 165 ($10 non-alcoholic, $16 alcoholic) for a fizzy concoction of pear, pink peppercorn and chamomile. Try the refreshing Bibimbap ($8) — think glass noodles served cold with carrot strips, an abundance of seaweed, sesame seeds and an appetizing citrusy sauce to tie it all together.

Nonya Dishes Been wanting to try this for awhile and it was shiok! Atas version of nonya caipng, I love, but not well-versed in this cuisine - but every dish was pretty well executed to me. Quite a good variety of dishes to pick from and there’s an interesting kerabu (salad) section. The prices turned out ok, ranging from $5-10. Everything would’ve been about $15/pax, with the exception of the fish (swipe to see!) which we happily ordered without checking the price 😂 The fish was firm flaky and nicely crisp and flavour - which was good, but was very, very pricey. My favourite was the yam cake, which was nicely fried, soft and you could still taste the chunks of yam; hae cho with bits of fresh prawns in deep fried bean curd skin; chapchye was also very flavourful and texture was soft with a bit of bite from the black fungus. Go for the tender beef rendang! Ayam Buahkeluak was earthy but rather light while the chicken was undoubtedly tender and succulent. We also ordered a soup - the meatball was juicy and well seasoned, tho we weren’t a fan of the soup itself which had a hint of alkaline taste. Good for groups if you like sharing and trying a bit of everything. Wouldn’t mind coming back once in awhile!

Hits And Misses For Now But They Are Sincere About Improving And That Is A Great Sign Four ladies and fourteen small plates of Peranakan food. That was the final count at lunch with my three food-loving friends. I love how Milly‘s initial concern about us having ordered too much food was put to rest by Gail’s quick-thinking comment to divide the twelve different dishes by four - “We would each order three dishes anyway”. Mathematics FTW. My favourites from the spread would be the Belimbing Pork (its thick gravy which is high-in-acidity and thus very sour, was the perfect foil for the soft chunks of fatty pork belly), Cinchalok Bomb (recommended by Angeline, the crunchy-on-the-outside ball of beancurd was deliciously savoury and umami) as well as all four of the assorted Kerabu (Asian salad) we had chosen. There were a few items that we found lacking, namely the Sotong Hitam, Belachan Chicken and Sambal Brinjal. When a staff came by to enquire about our meal, we shared our honest feedback. This was done in the spirit of hoping the team will want to work on improving the dishes, and not because we wanted to complain for the sake of complaining. To our surprise, when it came to payment, those items were omitted from our bill. Even though we protested and insisted on paying for them, she stood firm, explaining that since the eatery is still new and in the process of tweaking recipes, the management takes every customer’s feedback very seriously. Moreover, she pointed out, we hadn’t eaten much of those said dishes either. Wow, we were really impressed by this. One thing’s for sure, Belimbing Superstar gets a star from us for their service.

These cincalok bombs were my favourite. They tasted like the pork dumplings my Poh Poh use to make except these are on steroids. So yummy.

A Taste Of Taiwan In Singapore Honestly I haven’t tried Fong Sheng Hao in Taiwan so I can’t really compare, but if you’re a bread monster like me, you’ll probably love their bread. We got a few different items to share: pork floss toast, spicy pork toast and peanut toast set with the signature drinks - milk tea and black tea. Pork floss toast: My least favourite out of the three, I felt that the taste of the pork floss didn’t meld that well with the omelette, mayo and sweet bread. It wasn’t overly dry as meat floss goes, but the floss bits spilled out of the toast quite a fair bit so this was also the messiest toast to eat. Spicy pork toast: A recurring favourite for us. The spicy pork toast is like a moist juicy slice of bacon with spicy sauce. We haven’t tried the non-spicy version but the spicy one suits us just fine. It’s not all that spicy since there’s also mayo in the sandwich. The omelettes in all the savoury sandwiches are fluffy and just the right consistency for sandwiches - not too dry nor too runny. Peanut toast: One of the specials is two pieces of toast with creamy peanut butter sandwiched in between, with another layer of peanut butter AND crushed peanuts with sugar granules sprinkled generously on top. If you love peanut butter or peanuts, this is the toast to go for. I really liked the combination of the sweet milk bread with the slight savouriness of the peanut butter, plus the crunch of the peanuts and bursts of sweetness from the sugar granules. Think muah chee but essentially with peanut butter sandwich toast instead of sticky kueh.

Kaya Toast & Teh C Kosong Set To cater to the Singapore market, Fong Sheng Hao has a few local offerings in their menu made with their signature milk bread. We tried the Kaya butter toast, which comes with lots of ooey gooey Kaya and a generous slab of butter between soft milk toast. The toast is served warm, so be prepared to see Kaya and butter flow out when you pick it up. I actually really like the texture of the toast, as it was crispy but still soft inside. The milk toast also imparts its own subtle sweetness and milkiness to the sandwich. Fortunately the Kaya they use isn’t too sweet. Overall you get a coconutty taste, with some sweet milkiness and a little saltiness from the butter - all on a crisp yet fluffy toast. Yums. I dare say I like this toast more than the regular traditional brown bread! The teh c is also nice. The tea aroma is not too watered down, and kosong also wasn’t too bitter. Try this for a Taiwanese spin on our local coffee shop breakfast.

[Noka] - Cod marinated in miso is a classic combination which NOKA executed excellently in their own interpretation. What's unique with the Black Cod Saikyo-Yaki ($38) is the pairing with pulut hitam furikake and sea grape, giving the dish the additional boost in flavours and textures. .

Superior Prawn Mee Pok Noodles (SGD $19) @ Izy Fook. Think of this like a fusion of bak chor mee and Hokkien mee; with soft chewy mee pok egg noodles in a gravy of rich prawn stock, having bold sweet savoury salty flavour. . Garnished with tender minced pork, fresh bouncy deshelled tiger prawns, crisp sakura ebi / river shrimp, a wobbly soft onsen egg half, and crunchy fried shallots. . There's supposed to be lup cheong / dried Chinese pork sausage according to the menu, but we didn't have any in our serving. . Still, this was a delicious, filling bowl of noodles, pure comfort flavours. . . . Izy Fook More details in profile & blog

Cold Capellini Noodles (SGD $15) @ Izy Fook. This has to be eaten quickly, lest it gets clumpy. . The thin silky strands of capellini / angel hair pasta noodles are served chilled, in a creamy gravy blend of coconut cream, salted egg yolk, and truffle oil, giving this a bright floral earthy nutty sweet salty savoury flavour. . Paired with briny salty juicy globules of flying fish roe and crisp micro-greens, this was refreshing and appetizing. . So good. . . . Izy Fook More details in profile & blog

Izy House Salad (SGD $12) @ Izy Fook. This visually looks like a fresh garden salad, but tastes exactly like a Singaporean Chinese rojak salad, just without the dark fermented shrimp gravy. . This is achieved through the use of calamansi juice, laksa flower, and galangal. . The medley of fruits and vegetables (lettuce, chard, baby spinach, pickled cucumber, red onions, pineapple, starfruit, cherry tomato) are fresh and juicy sweet, but the dressing lends a depth of tangy sharp sour earthy spice flavour. . Interesting combination, and I love that it helps open the palate. . . . Izy Fook More details in profile & blog
