Indonesian specialities- ONLY UNTIL 27th JULY! Catch it before it's gone!

Among the plethora of different curries, meats and seafood, this was the star of the Indonesian specialities! I've never seen such a large spread of beautifully presented and freshly made sambals. Here are just some of their names: sambal matah (shallots, lime leaves and chilli salsa), sambal ijo Sumatran (fresh green chilli chutney), sambal tomat, sambal terasi (shrimp paste chilli chutney), sambal dabu dabu Manado (Manado chilli paste), sambal manga muda (fresh young mango chilli paste) and more! Each with its unique take on spiciness. Combined with the tangy sweetness of young mangoes or savory umami-ness of shrimp, you get spoiled for choice!

All the Indonesia Specialities were created by guest chefs from The Ritz-Carlton Bali, hence providing the authenticity to the wonderful food. The love and care they put into their food was visible.

This here is a delicious portion of tofu covered in sambal that is pretty perfectly balanced. Not too sweet, not too spicy. The tofu is tender and fresh, soaking up much of the lovely sambal. It comes with red, yellow and green bell peppers tossed together with it in the sambal. Being one of my favourite dishes, I had to post this.

This has chipotle aioli, spiced pork sausage, lettuce, egg and cheese, surrounded by an onion bagel. The star of the show was actually the delicious chipotle aioli and the onion bagel combo, as that was actually all that was left halfway through the bagel. The bagel bread was so oniony, I loved it! If you don't love the taste of onions, maybe don't go for this. Definitely check your breath afterwords.
The sausage tasted more like kebab because of the spices and the softer consistency. If I'm in the mood for a lighter and savoury breakfast bagel, I'm definitely getting this again!

This is one of the cheaper options at $10.

Consists of pepperoni, spicy tomato sauce and cheddar cheese according to the menu. The "spicy" sauce was super sweet and not really spicy at all. I think this sweetness was to try to balance out the saltiness of the pepperoni. The bagel was made of rye as they ran out of garlic ones which I wanted. Since rye bread is denser, this bagel actually tasted more bagel-ly than the garlic one I got last time. It was chewy and dense and that really helped prevent the bagel from becoming soggy from the sauce. There was also a layer of melted and hardened cheese underneath the bagels with tasted SO GOOD! I'm not sure if they deliberately fried extra cheese beneath or it melted downwards. Whatever it was, it ended up GREAT!
$12 for this. It's very filling so it's actually great to share! That will help make it cheaper too ;)

Well grilled juicy chicken with just the edges being dried out from the grill. The skin was crispy and nicely quoted without too much teriyaki sauce. This kind of quality for the price and for a food court is INCREDIBLE! You can just see from the service and especially the quality of the buns. The rest of the food here is also so good! Can't stop raving about it. One of the best Western stalls out there!
$5.60 for the set.

So horrible. Worst fast food burger I've EVER had. What a weird concoction of spices ... Wayyyy too sweet, way too minty hot and just ...not right. There was a crunch of the sugar which was so despicable. First bite was difficult to chew or swallow. It burnt my tongue but not in a spicy way...it was the minty hotness. Extremely unusual. I scraped off the mountain of "mala" chilli paste off the two patties to try to finish my meal as I was starving! Even so, I couldn't eat another bite and had to throw it away. I felt so guilty but it was really inedible.
$6.80 for doubles meal. Comes with fries and drink.

Soggy, soft, lukewarm chicken with the BBQ powder like the one on potato chips. Disappointing. I loved the 8 peppers chicken last time. I had it at the Buona outlet, and that outlet always serves hot, crispy chicken, whatever the time. Maybe it's the outlet issue but still, that BBQ powder was just disappointing. That's $10.80 for the set, wasted.

Extremely tender, sweet, buttery and beautifully caramelized on the outside... This is my new favourite dessert. Plus, there is apparently no added sugar or honey, which is completely unbelievable to me since it's SO SWEET!!! How do you even get that caramelization without sugar??? Amazing! No wonder this is such a popular item. So darn worth it! Only $2.80 each!

The Primal has beef brisket, which is house smoked. It's pretty tender and the char is so good! There were two hunks of fat chunks on both sides which just melted in your mouth. The brisket was a tad too salty for my liking. The mustard BBQ sauce, gherkins, pickled chillies and cheese might have made the saltiness worse. I chose the garlic bagel and did not regret that! The bagel was generously sprinkled with diced and roasted garlic. The bagel itself however, tasted much like bread with a little bit of chewiness at the edges. A bit too bready. While eating this, there was oil pouring out of every crevice. This was sooo oily! Mind you, it's not the meat or pickle juice. It was oil. Pretty messy to eat, too, as the filling was rather generous.
I'd definitely come back but I won't get The Primal again. I'd try some lighter options or the breakfast bagels. I was struggling to finish this. It would be good to share if not looking for a full meal!

This is NOT BOBA! This is similar to their pomegranate pearls just that they have coffee bursting out of those pearls instead of pomegranate juice. It's soooo goood!!! Anyone who loves caramel and isn't too worried about the sugar, would love it! $9.90 for Venti is a little steep. But with the AIA Vitality vouchers it's pretty okay. Plus the 1-1 deal happening til tmr! Always worth it then.
Can see that Starbucks is trying to hop onto the crazy bandwagon of the brown sugar fad happening in SG using the term "dark caramel". Of course that's totally different from brown sugar, but you can see the similarity there. Especially with the boba looking coffee pearls. Glad that it wasn't actually boba and brown sugar as that would feel just too desperate for a conglomerate like Starbucks.
