Carrot Halwa Kulfi, Coffee, Honeycomb & Basil Super intrigued by this dessert ($16) not just by the ingredients and how they will come together but also the visuals. So unique. This has got to be our favourite item at Thevar, out of all we had. Ending off on a really delicious note with this. There seems to be so much going on but once you eat it, everything makes sense as they all blend together perfectly; the taste & the texture really made this dessert so enjoyable. The halwa kulfi wasn’t too sweet and goes well with the basil oil. The main sweetness comes from the honeycomb biscuits and bites from the pistachios and raisins. A surprise layer of coffee cream/mousse (?) beneath it added such a different dimension to the dish. Really well done and perfectly executed 😍

Pepper & Tamarind Iberico Pork Chop, Mango Curry This was a dish my partner had and when it first came, we both thought the same thing. That’s it? Haha.. the plate looked rather empty with just a dollop of the sauce at the side. 😅 The pork chop ($42) was very flavourful and good even on its own. It was well grilled and marinated that eating it with the sauce elevated the dish with the sweet notes of the mango curry. A good pairing indeed. Only gripe is maybe they could have put some fresh salad at the side to accompany the dish to add some freshness, crunch and visuals of the dish. Just a thought .. 🧐

Seared Snapper, Curd rice & Coconut Molee The main I got since it sounds more interesting besides the pork chop my partner got. This dish ($36) came with a perfectly cooked snapper with spices on the top and the curd rice was honestly reminiscent of my aunt’s curry. Sour notes and just very .. nostalgic. The coconut molee reminded me of the chutney - sambar and coconut chutney eaten with dosai. They were also sourish. Basil oil was used as well but I couldn’t really taste the oil since the other components were stronger on flavours hence quite redundant ..🤨 There are quite a number of things that went wrong with the dish for me. As much as I love the very South Indian taste of it, it just fell short of being a balanced dish. If I could describe the dish in one word, it would be sour. 😕 Not in a bad way that the dish is not tasty but something they can work on by introducing a spicy or sweet notes to the dish. The skin of the dish was also extremely salty with the spices they added on the skin so this dish overall doesn’t really work out for me.

Coffee With An Exotic Touch Consider this Afro cafe in Keong Saik for your next coffee date, the second storey is a gorgeous space — chic and full of personality, with a touch of understated glamour. And more importantly, great coffee — though not quite in the same vein as your typical specialty coffeehouse. - Their selection of coffee is diverse and unique, with plenty of African influences. Moreover, many would be charmed by their special Ubuntu blend's full-bodied and intense character, finished with subtle chocolate notes. - This 𝗠𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶 𝗹𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲 ($6) was a charming display of their esotericism. The hokkaido milk made it dreamily creamy, but not at all cloying. A medley of spices including cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg added a complementary spice-forward complexity to the coffee, but in a tastefully-restrained ratio that would still endear to less adventurous palates. ----- [𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙬𝙣] 𝙆𝙖𝙛𝙚 𝙐𝙩𝙪 📍 𝟭𝟮 𝗝𝗶𝗮𝗸 𝗖𝗵𝘂𝗮𝗻 𝗥𝗱, 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝟬𝟴𝟵𝟮𝟲𝟱 ⏱️ Lunch (Wed-Fri) 10am-5pm, (Sat-Sun) 9am-5pm; Dinner (Wed-Thurs, Sun) 6pm-11pm, (Fri-Sat) 6pm-1am; 𝒄𝒍𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒅 𝒐𝒏 𝑴𝒐𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑻𝒖𝒆𝒔𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔

Buttermilk Chicken These popcorn chicken bites ($18) are made of fresh chicken thigh battered with a buttermilk and spice mix and served with a trio of dipping sauces (Congo bongo, mango chili marmalade and house made chili). Personally I like my popcorn chicken big and chunky, and these were unfortunately not that. The meat to batter ratio seemed slightly off. They were piping hot, crispy and seasoned well though and each dipping sauce brought forth its own unique flavor profile. My favorite was the sweet and spicy mango chili marmalade with its refreshing fruity undertones. 7/10

Sunset Cauliflower This is a huge plate of cauliflower ($15) which has been lightly steamed then crisped up slightly to give a slight blush of brown to these florets. It's lightly sprinkled with dukkha (a herb and spice condiment) and dressed with some Dijon dressing and sunflower seeds. It was steaming hot and I had to let it cool a bit before I could comfortably tuck into the food. The cauliflower was cooked well with just the right amount of crunch and softness. The Dijon had a slightly sourish tang (which my dining partner disliked but I didn't mind because cauliflower is generally flavorless and it elevated the taste a little) and the sunflower seeds provided a welcome crunch. Altogether, a rather well thought-out, well put-together vegetable dish perfect for snacking. 8/10

Hawker Bowl [$6] Grab an order slip, mark your choices and hand it over to order! I went with the smaller Hawker Bowl that lets you choose 1 carb, 1 protein, 2 sides, 1 fairy dust and 1 sauce. I had the aromatic rice, garam masala dory fish, sea salt crispy broccoli, disco mushrooms, crispy broken fragment and the cream garlic sauce. Thought the portion of rice could be a tad bigger, but it was pretty tasty overall. The components complemented each other and were mostly well seasoned. Service was friendly and they are more than happy to share their pairing recommendations. There’s a bigger Towkay Bowl that goes for $9 with 1 additional protein and 2 additional sides. They also change up their menu quite regularly to keep things refreshing!

Beng Who Cooks. Located at 531A Upper Cross Street, Hong Lim Market & Food Centre, unit 01-44, Singapore 051531. . . Hawker Bowl, $6. For a change today, we had healthy bowl for lunch! Healthy eating doesn’t means boring, this is a super tasty bowl which we really enjoyed! Homemade spicy dory is well marinated with their spices, those sea salt crispy broccoli were very crunchy and tasteful, makes me feel like finishing all the vegs! Yummy!!! @bengwhocooks . . . #hungryunicornsg #bengwhocooks #healthybowl #honglimfoodcentre

Bright towkay Bowl ($9) Liked the ambition with this dish, but the execution just fell short of the mark. First, the good stuff. The egg was sous vide really perfectly, and would easily be one of the best ones we’ve had in SG. Also, their toppings are generally very interesting and out of the ordinary and Ah Beng tries to switch them up once in a while. The tempeh strips weren’t crunchy nor crispy but added a nice nuttiness to the dish, as did the fibre bits (though we’re not sure what this came from). The fried broccoli was also a unique touch to the dish. The glazed tofu was really bland tho, and tasted like boiled tau kwa, only without any taste. The honey sesame beef was also very pedestrian, and had no depth in flavour; it tasted just like sugar was added to it. The heart/core of the romaine lettuce was included in the dish (not sure whether intended or otherwise), which was fine, but it looked like it hadn’t been washed, and was also bitter. But overall, a place to try if you’re looking for a healthier option in chinatown, and also if you wanna support a young hawker! Can Order💪

Ribbed For Your Pleasure Alittle tashi’s grilled lamb ribs ($26++) was probably the least aesthetically pleasant dish that nice, but it was arguably the most delicious dish on the table that night. Marinated in mint yogurt, these ribs are slow cooked for 6 hours before being plated alongside a serving of pickled beetroot. The result is outstandingly juicy and tremendously tender meat that slides off the bone with its semi gelatinous fat. It’s mildly gamey, not quite enough to be off-putting, and the flavors within are moderate. There’s a nice bit of char, which lends a nice bit of smokiness to these tender ribs. These lamb ribs might not be the most radical, reality altering ribs in existence, but they’re addictive enough to eliminate the concept of a ‘paiseh’ piece and result in a hunger game over the last luscious lamb rib.

Bruh, I’m Like, So Baked Right Now Lmao Alittle tashi is built from the ground up on a tapas/sharing plate concept, so the Baked River Prawn ($32++) does raise a whole lotta eyebrows as it seems to be in complete rebellion of said concept. A colossal river prawn is butterflied right down the middle and baked, and is then draped atop a bed of crispy shiitake garlic rice like one of your sexy French girls. Ginger scallion sauce is then squirted right down the prawn’s crack for a little extra excitement and flavor. It wasn’t as fresh as it should’ve been, but it ain’t all that bad in all honesty. The crispy shiitake garlic rice would be better off with a more pungent garlic flavor, but other than that, it was pretty decent. Sure, the rice is kinda hard and crunchy rather than soft & fluffy, but they did put ‘crispy’ right there in the menu so you had ample warning of what to expect. The real reason why I thought this dish was rather weak when considering alittle tashi’s foundational concept of Asian fusion sharing plates was mainly down to that river prawn. It’s large enough to be shared between two, but when you’ve got a ménage a trois or more, that prawn is under equipped for said task. And when you consider the fact that this dish is $32++, it’s real easy to believe that you’ve been cheated. Especially if you don’t use #BurppleBeyond. Tasty? Yes. Worth it? No. Hotel? Trivago.

Surf N Turf, Not Surfin Bird The bird is NOT the word here, as this unholy matrimony of roast pork belly and mussels is all about when porcine met mollusk. Yes I know, Crispy Pork Belly & Mussels? The name alone is crazy enough, but follow me down the rabbit hole and you’ll see how deep this goes. The mussels are just standard issue mollusks straight out of the shell, nothing special really. The crispy pork belly, on the other hand, was deliciously decent even on its lonesome. Sure, the rind could’ve been a lot crispier, but the juiciness of the superbly seasoned meat and the tantalizingly well cooked lard made the pork belly stand out. However, the thing that manages to seamlessly fuse the two elements together isn’t black magic. It’s a sweet & sour black tamari sauce, as I have been reliably informed by alittle tashi themselves. That sourness works well to cut through the admittedly negligible brininess from the mussels, as well as the fatty richness of the pork belly. Seafood excels when paired with sweetness, and the mussels really shone with that hint of sweetness, and so did the pork belly. It’s a daring dish, and it’s true, who dares wins. This dish was one of the two outstanding dishes that night, but I still can’t help but think that at $30++ for a plate, this was overpriced. Fortunately, with #BurppleBeyond, we did get another dish free with this baby, so it made that $30 oh so absolutely worth it.

Too Pricy Very Little Quantity We ordered a falafel salad and hummus platter which was over $15 but too little. The burger was too tiny and was surprised by the size of it. Don't get me started on the Kombucha drink. I wouldn't go there again.

[📍Afterglow by Anglow] After seeing several mix reviews online as well as seeing them featured on foodking "healthy food" episode, I was a little curious to try their #eatclean food (especially since they also serve raw vegan food which sounds interesting). However, i was quite hesitant to try due to mix reviews online about how the portion was really small and how raw vegan food was an acquired taste. We ordered the: 1. Avocado kimchi rolls ($14) -Served with almond sushi 'rice', housemade kimchi and topped with avocado. - My mum felt that the sushi was too dry for her liking as they used nuts rather than rice. For me, i felt that the kimchi did add a crunchy and juicy texture to the entire dish. The dish wasnt mindblowingly tasty and tasted pretty average. Its definitely drier than the avocado sushi that has sticky moist japanese rice. Having been in korea for months for my semester exchange, i felt that the kimchi taste was too mild for my liking and wasnt very authentic. -3/5 2. Acai Bowl ($15) -Acai berry, raw museli, seasonal fruits and raw berry puree. -This acai bowl was TOOOO SWEET for our liking. It totally lacked the sour accent of berries. The raw museli was too hard for us that we didnt finished it. Overall we didnt enjoy it as it felt really one dimension and all we could remember about this dish was just the word SWEET. I felt that the sweetness masked the acai profile (as we couldnt taste the fruity red wine flavour with chocolate overtones that most acai blend have). -The portion is really very small (probably between the size of a medium to large acai bowl) and for $15, it is a tad too pricey, especially since the ingredients/toppings were very little. -0/5 Worth it: 1/5. Yeap i have to agree with the online reviews that the small portion certainly does not justify its price (with 10% svc). Also, the taste was below/just average and hence i wouldnt pay so much for it. Ps. We went to try as we saw that they have 50% discount for EATIGO users at weird timings (ie 3-4.30pm) if you are interested to try then i feel using the eatigo deal would be better. Taste: 1.5/5 Overall: 2.5/10 No go😖😖 not for us😅 Can go Must go #burpple

Salted Caramel Two thin slices of salted caramel cake with interesting bits of nuts and fruit - dragon fruit, blueberries on top. The cake is smaller than it looks in the image but heavy to eat. It is not too sweet and contains honey (so do let them know if you can’t take honey) which I liked.
