THE LAST 30% SALE: We're not kidding. This is your LAST chance to enjoy 30% OFF on the Annual plan! >

YES THAT’S A CHICKEN FOOT! Yesterday I may have eaten fried chicken for lunch AND dinner.

The salted egg friend chicken (S$ 30) at The Guild is something I’ll be raving about for quite some time. It’s a dish that embodies the concept of comfort food for it’s fried, it’s salty, it’s crispy, it’s tender and it’s a damn big portion too!

It comes with no side, and you can pair it with a fresh greens salad or other lighter items of the vegetables menu.

The Guild is a cozy gastro pub on the buzzing Kaong Saik Road. It’s the brainchild of beloved independent craft brewers Young Masters, hailing from Hong Kong.

Chef Vincent Lauria focuses on homemade comfort food, made with locally sourced high quality ingredients.

The Mac & Cheese ($S 21) is TO DIE for. Creamy, gooey, dreamy. Topped with scallion and a bright orange yolk, it’s the ultimate #foodporn

This set meal is pretty huge and may not be ideal for work lunch break if you want to avoid napping and snoring at your desk while trying to get over the #foodcoma.

The pork cutlet is lightly breaded and fried to perfect crispiness without being oily. The meat is cooked through but stays juicy and tender.

Comes with three fat slabs of salmon sashimi, chawanmushi, miso soup and a side of sesame dressed shredded cabbage.

For S$ 25, it’s quite a deal!

Big portion sets at this join in Aperia Mall. The chirashi bowl comes filled with many different types of cubed sashimi, salad and miso soup for S$22.

Makes for a good lunch if you’re in the area!

Today I made my way downtown and had lunch at Saybon. Perfect spot for a light, healthy and quick lunch break if you work in the area. By quick I mean I was literally in and out in 15 min lol.

The eggs of the Nordic Set (S$10) were scrambled to perfect fluffiness, loved them on top of the garlicky butter bread and accompanied with the lightly cured smoked salmon.

Was craving for something fresh and healthy yesterday and found Aloha Poke at Westgate mall.

This place serves up customizable poke bowls and pokerritos (a poke wrap that has nothing to do with a burrito). Prices around the S$16-18 mark.

You can choose between several different types of marinated and seasoned fish, from traditional flavors to more experimental ones. My favorite was the mentaiko salmon.

Both poke bowls and pokerritos come with liberal amounts of pineapple.

Aloha Poke has several outlets around the city, lookin forward to my next visit!

Not the best hawker food (tourist trap) but definitely a good place to visit from time to time with people from out of town and on weekends, right before hitting the central area bar streets.

So great to find an *affordable* French style patisserie up north-west of Singapore!

The pastries at Lee’s Confectionary are not only delicious but also gorgeous to look at and photograph, making this little hipster minimalistic bakery a top foodie destination.

The DALE (S$8), presents a dense and moist matcha sponge layered with matcha ganache and passion fruit jam over a buttery crumble base. I found it slightly undertone in flavors, lacking a bit of a kick to make this pastry truly lip-smacking.

The TART (S$8) was absolutely lovely. The thin, crunchy crust confines a naturally tangy lime cream and fragrant almond sponge. There’s also a flakey layer of toasted almonds which add texture and complexity to the pastry. Plated gorgeously too!

Coffees are served with little biscuits on the side, making it the perfect afternoon pick me up drink, while sharing pastries with the gals.

Worth a trip to Jurong East? Absolutely.

Been munching on many of these coconut + tapioca pancakes filled with peanut crumble or coconut shavings or read bean paste.

The dough is stretchy and a bit chewy, not too sweet... and one piece is just 80 cents!
I like to have a piece or two for breakfast, along with my kopi ☕️

So... We went to IKEA to explore some furniture options and as we browsed through the isles of perfect homes decorated with mediocre soulless furnishings we got hungry.

We were pushed to find shelter and nourishing outside as the whole of Singapore seems to to think lining up for self-service food from IKEA is an exciting, exotic way to spend a Friday night.

We therefore stumbled across Otoko Ramen, a little Japanese restaurant right around the corner from the Swedish megastore.

Service was incredibly keen. They came with a bowl of six complimentary hard boiled eggs which make for a great snack before digging into their 20 hour brewed tonkotsu broth full of collagen and fat from the pork bones.

The broth is of the right thickness for my taste. I wish we could have customized the thickness and hardness of the noodles, but overall it’s such a better option than IKEA cardboard meatballs!

We also had a small salmon chirashi bowl and some edamame. Prices are decent.

This place is a great option if you find yourself swamped and need a short break from the little demon kids that bump around, crawl and yell all over the place in IKEA.

After all the crazy hawker foods, last night I finally had an excellent smoked salmon salad (S$17) at Sarnies.

I find this little joint super cool and well priced, with a great outdoor patio and friendly service. Decent bottle of Sauvignon Blanc for S$40.

Will be back again when the health monster strikes again...
