What is supposedly the best nasi padang in Singapore... lives up to its expectations!

The whole point of this post isn't to laud Macs with an over-enthusiastic review brimming with optimism about the current state of its fish burgers but rather, a case in point about how even if you're handed the shittiest meal in the whole world, it can be made better (and worth writing about) if you found yourself a nice little spot in the evening sun, nowhere near the premises of MacD's where it reeks of grease and table sanitisers, listen to the sound of water gushing from its source nearby (in this case, sadly, a man-made water fountain)... and then watch the world pass you by, all decisions made consciously on your own... sounds like a terribly lonely meal but just what you need to turn a forgettable experience into something quite extraordinary.

Seriously good, no fancyschmancy plating of very edible grilled sweet potato served with butter. It's very edible because its skin is edible, and according to the sister, tastes like BREAD with the butter (I concur). Aahhh, sweet potatoes ~~

This dish confirms I have no problems consuming animals raw, cooked, whatsoever... As long as they are properly prepared in the kitchen. (haven't gotten over that insect barrier though)

The skewered foie gras here is probably one of the more popular items on the menu because it is simply that good. Most places would probably kill this dish (pun intended) by over-grilling it 'til the liver goes dry but gosh this one just slides off the skewer like phwoahh, for the lack of a better description. And yes, it does melt in your mouth.The size of each piece on the skewer also ensures you don't get too much of it in one bite (unless of course, you prefer a mouth filled with all that gelat oily "goodness"). To me it was done just right.

I'm wondering myself why I'm uploading (almost) everything that left an impression last night. Perhaps it's because of the price I paid for dinner (not sorry this is true) and the fact that my spot was lit and therefore was able to take presentable pictures heheheh. Okonomi Yaki here was skillfully done (I mean look at that loopy drizzle of mayo) with the right balance of flour and toppings.

My first experience with chicken hearts was at Koh Grill and Sushi Bar where they serve their hearts a little tougher and more chewy, almost similar to the texture of chicken gizzard. Kazu's Chicken Hearts though, actually look and feel more like chicken hearts. I think I actually saw the vein... which in my opinion makes it my winner if I were to compare the two.

Move aside, enoki! The lobster has taken the bacon roll to a whole new level of gastronomic high. Also, guaranteed to induce audible gasp at the dinner table!

Lunch on the eve of the new year with my sister. An additional order of tamago and seaweed, with less salt, no chicken oil and "hard" noodles makes the best combination thus far.

Say, we played a round of, Have You Ever?. And your question to me was, Have you ever had your mind blown by the humble tau sar piah? And my answer to that would be, Yes, twice, one after another.

If only I could have more Fridays like this. Good weather, good company and good food. Once again, Suju did not disappoint. I remain very much in love with the rice served here. This badly cropped picture is proof that I simply couldn't wait to get started on my lunch.

Not too sure if I got the name right, probably not, but it doesn't matter anyway. This was dinner last Saturday night in the office. Two miserable souls slaving away at their office desks; this is the life of junior ADs. It's sad. But when you treat yourself a little better and indulge in a half-and-half pizza delivery from Domino's, things start to look up a little and dinner feels like a just reward for your commitment to your work. 💪 God provides good food which gives us strength and strength will keep us fighting on. Haha damn, I'm overdoing this. It's only (yummy) pizza.
