This photo doesn’t do this dish justice at all, but hiding under that unassuming bed of garnishes are tender, melt-in-your-mouth slices of fatty wagyu beef with just the right fat-to-meat ratio. But what I really enjoyed about this dish was that super fragrant and well-balanced dressing, consisting of sesame oil, dashi stock and cider vinegar.

My fave pasta of the lot that we tried. Beetroot pasta in a shape slightly reminiscent of macaroni was al-dente and slicked nicely in a fragrant, herby pesto sauce, mushrooms were super juicy and huge, and adding miso corn bits to this dish was genius! Have it a slightly sweet and crunchy edge to balance out the other elements.

Back at Brothers Ramen wanting to get their Shoyu Men ($12.90), but it was sold out. 😔 Went for the Chicken Ramen this time for a full sous vide chicken chashu + dumpling topping, as I wasn’t too big a fan of the pork chashu that came with their signature Brothers Ramen ($12.90) I had the first time. It was a little too dry and tough, but the chicken slices were tender and flavourful!

I’ve never really used to like chicken based ramen, but Brothers Ramen really brought it up a notch! Love how creamy yet drinkable the broth is and the al dente homemade ramen didn’t soften through the meal. It’s a super value for money quality bowl (no additional taxes) that’s extremely comforting!

One of the better food court chicken chops. The chicken chop is pretty large and tender as it is battered like how ayam penyet is made. You can choose your sides and have fries instead of the bread. Worth a try!

The salmon was dry, as expected of any food court salmon dish. Even with the sides of fries and coleslaw, somehow this was not filling. Do try the fish and chips instead, which they are better known for (other outlets). This was $10.90.

There's a new Fish & Chicks outlet at JEM!
I expected Mexican spices instead of what you can see in the picture - an explosion of nacho cheese sauce. That was bit disappointing and woww that was a lot of sauce. There was also a brown sauce which tasted a lot like the one used with mashed potatoes.
The chicken was not dry, so I don't understand the point of drenching it with two sauces. There was a thick layer of skin underneath, so in the end I was still hungry. It wasn't filling. Even with the fries. Which, btw, were nicely seasoned.
Try the main fish and chips here instead! They should be better.
This was $8.90

Gave Ordinary Burgers at City Square Mall a go yesterday; thought their burgers were pretty value for money considering how this was priced at $5.90.

The burger comes with fried buttermilk chicken patty and other condiments such as lettuce and tomatoes; the chicken being drenched in a salted egg yolk sauce while everything is sandwiched in between two buns. The buns were undoubtedly light, while the portion of chicken was pretty generous — fried in a crisp, golden brown batter, the chicken was tender, succulent and juicy; pretty savoury on its own. The salted egg sauce was decent; not too heavy whilst coming with curry leaves for flavour. Overall a pretty well-sized burger despite looking rather heavy; rather easy to finish and pretty affordable — a value for money option that I would consider having again.

The Tom Yum variant introduced as a new year special is a daring move by Kokomo. Giving up my favourite Spicy Mazesoba was another daring sacrifice, but I’m so glad I did. This Tom Yum Version infuses certain elements of the Thai iconic flavour which needs no introduction, without compromising the key elements of Mazesoba which makes it so enjoyable. You will find instead of the usually spring onion and chive, a lot more additional ingredients such as lemon grass, chopped tomato, julienned cucumber and of course chopped pikinu (chilli padi). What makes it Tom Yum is that the minced pork is infused a Tom Yum seasoning. Not forgetting the wedge of lime that brings a really refreshing twist to this equally enjoyable variant.

Found a good ayam penyet stall located near my office. The chicken is crispy & juicy complimented by the fragrant rice & power sambal chili. Oh, you can use GrabPay to pay for your food here as well.

Definitely worth a try! It wasn't as sickeningly sweet as I expected. Nevertheless, if you do not like sweet things, better to avoid this.
There is a slight bitter, smoky note to the brown sugar syrup, which makes the sweetness more than just plain sweetness. Slightly expensive tho, at $4.30 for medium size...which basically the smallest size there.

One of the best pad thais I've had. Flavourful, full of texture and fresh ingredients. I loved that the chicken was really tender and not some old hard meat. Yummy!! Price: $8.50 nett

Priced at $7.95, this was an interesting experience. The soup was nothing like a normal laksa, no coconut cream at all! It was actually listed as an heathier option. There was a nice combination of sweet, sour and minty flavour. The spiciness can always be enhance with the sambal belachan, which was really good! This was my first time trying Penang laksa, so I'm not sure what exactly to expect, but I still liked it. Probably won't have it again tho. That's not because of the flavour, but because it comes with sardine, which I don't like. Or most seafood actually haha
