Ordered a medium-sized portion. Sorry other laksas, but I’m team @janggut_laksa. Broth is not overly thick, and of course you can enjoy the dish with just a spoon.

Steamed chicken, roast pork, greens, and an egg. Love how the grains of rice are not mushed together - great texture too. Chicken is tender, roast pork was a little tough. Chilli was the bomb as it was rather well-balanced and had a reaaaally good kick!

A “make your own bowl” salad for the start of the week. Cajun chicken (great flavor, but a little dry), carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese, sliced egg, with an apple cider vinaigrette from @thelawncafe.

Finally here for their beef noodles ever since they opened in Tiong Bahru Plaza. There are also 7 types of noodles to choose from, depending on the thickness and shape, as well as the choice to have it in soup or just dried. The broth looks deceptively light but it is packed with flavor (when you’ve got 15 herbs in the stock and probably even more). Noodles are perfectly cooked and the meat is tender. What I love about this place is that each dish is cooked to order: freshly pulled noodles into a waiting bowl of piping hot and flavorful broth. I would definitely recommend adding their chili oil because it gives the broth even more depth. Vinegar is optional. My first experience with Lanzhou Beef Noodles: Absolutely loving it. In other words, 超赞! 🍜

[成]美食好味道is located right in between the boneless braised duck and the roasted meat stall in Tanglin Halt Food Centre. Prices range from $3.00 - $5.00. They do not use pork here, so the meat options you have are chicken and battered fish. The broth was not as flavorful as I thought it would be, and slightly watery. For the battered fish, batter > fish, and we were given a quarter of a hard-boiled egg. They are generous with their ingredients so this will fill you up for lunch.

This dish is made with a miso base, hence the slight saltiness. There’s also konjac and radish in the stew too. Although salty, it is a comforting dish as it warms your stomach readily. Only for offal lovers!🐷

Malloreddus, also known as gnocchetti sardi or ‘little Sardinian gnocchi’ are a typical pasta from Sardinia. It is slightly yellowish because of the addition of saffron. Nostra Cucina serves theirs with a sausage ragu. A meaty sauce with the slight tartness from the tomato base, paired with the perfectly cooked al dente pasta. O mama mia.

A familiar name (probably) for office workers in the CBD area, hungry stomachs after a few drinks at the pubs, or just supper-goers. Went straight for their minced pork noodles, which at $4, is very affordable. You’ve got your usual toppings of minced and lean meat, meatballs, and a mushroom (😐). The addition of ikan bilis was a new thing for me but it certainly added some crunch to the dish. Noodles were well-cooked, but I felt that the sauce wasn’t vinegary enough (compared to Ming Fa, or even the airport’s T3 Kopitiam’s ba chor mee). Although it’s a ‘lighter’ version of the ba chor mee that I know, I still wouldn’t mind enjoying it.

Deconstructed lamb & beef kebab with tchigurt, pine nuts, pistachios, cured lemon, watercress pesto, harissa, olive tapenade with pita bread, and a herbed sunflower seed tabouleh. A great combination of flavours and textures: the spiced meat, slight acidity from the yoghurt, and the refreshing tabouleh.

Danish loaf, bacon steak, guacamole, maple sausage, cured salmon, tater tots, mesclun salad. Overall, it’s put together pretty well. Cured salmon wasn’t too impressive, but the star would be the maple sausage. The combination of sweet and salty does work very well!
