A triple threat sandwich with mozzarella, brie and cheddar, this grilled cheese sandwich is a hearty brunch option. The tomato jam is very very yummy and the side salad is probably one of the best I’ve had on a brunch plate in awhile. All, if not most of micro’s brunch plates showcase slices of their signature sourdough bread which is toasted to the perfect crunch and are sufficiently tangy.

You might recall that this famed fire ramen was trending in the middle of this year. Word on the street is that it’s overhyped. It’s not overhyped if: you don’t queue 2 hours for it and use Burpple Beyond (you get one ramen of the set for free). It’s actually a very flavourful bowl of ramen, with a hint of smokiness from the fiery entertainment exhibited in front of you before you are led back to your table! The set comes with 2 ramen, 2 eggs and 2 drinks.

I was always sceptical about Genki because I thought it was gimmicky - why should I pay extra just so I can have my food served to me on a train?? That is until a friend got me hooked on it. Indeed, an inner-child part of me derives joy from being able to order whatever I want whenever I want and having it arrive at the table just like that. It’s great when you’re feeling snacky and not up for a large meal. My favourites are the Genki roll and the soba noodles!

I’ve always loved the Jewel Set Meal at Muji Cafe Jewel and I’ve missed it ever since they decided to close that outlet there. This is my first time trying another Muji Cafe - quality is pretty standard but the portions seem pretty small considering the price. Overall experience is okay.

Choice of one hot deli and one cold deli, hijiki or an onsen egg, miso soup or carrot soup and a soft roll bun or rice (16 grain or white).

Car pics are reserved for food that I’m super excited to eat and cannot wait till I get home to try them. Finally snagged one these puffy doughnuts after all the hype… and it is worth it. Look at the banana cream oozing out from my finger just lightly resting on it! Rolled in sugar, it is crunchy on the outside yet soft and fluffy on the inside - both from the pastry and the generous cream. Can’t wait to try more of their flavours!

Ignore my tea stain but this was a super yummy study break snack! Just some good wholesome food to fuel your brain. The teh wasn’t very good though but I guess it was still nice to have something hot after freezing in NLB.

We popped into this hole in the wall on Cross Street for a simple Japanese dinner on my birthday and we really loved this place! Calm and Muji-esque, Marukyu is a cosy place to enjoy authentic Japanese dishes with high quality ingredients from Japan. Their bento sets are generous and allow you to try a little bit of everything, definitely go for it if you are like me and struggle to decide what to eat most of the time.

We decided to try this place for an early lunch after it was featured by Ghib Ojisan in one of his videos! It is one of the better ramens out there (we came back again a few weeks later) - a hearty broth, al dente noodles and good cha shu. You are allowed to “customise” your ramen by choosing the strength of the broth, spice and the texture of the noodles. Definitely love mine a bit spicier!

Eleven Strands has become a fan favourite on Burpple Beyond. A cosy little cafe with so many western options - definitely check out their home made pasta, this vongole had a tasty white wine sauce and a generous serving of clams!

I’ve posted quite a lot from Tonito’s but only because it is THAT good and it has become one of my family’s favourite go to restaurants! The staff are attentive and the food is delicious.

This Mexican Chicken Stew is a hearty dish - served warm and oh so flavourful, it gives you a little spice that hits right at the back of your throat. Pair this with a baguette or garlic rice for $2 but I didn’t have to since the portion was already so generous!

I was quite delighted to find a new eating spot near school - a cha chaan teng serving up traditional HK treats ranging from toast, dim sum, congee, noodles and other common dishes like baked tomato pork chop rice.

Really like the chill, self-order and self-pick up style here, but it means that queues can get long during peak hours. I was happy with my bowl of noodles because I love HK yellow noodles and the dumplings were nice and crunchy. Prawn cheong fun, as seen in the background, was really soft and yummy! Would recommend for breakfast or a staple dim sum dish.

We were quite delighted to find this cafe at a corner of Little India after our unexpected cultural walk when we found our intended eating place to be closed. Steep is a small and simple cafe which provided us just enough respite from the hot afternoon sun.

French Toast looked better than it tasted, nevertheless it still provided a pretty good brunch. Personally, I felt that the bread could have had more egg flavour and would have been quite tasteless if not for the mascarpone, berry compote and the unique honey thyme syrup.
