Great Variety, Quality & Value! There are many Japanese buffets out there, but Shin Minori is definitely one of the better ones, especially with the burpple beyond deals! There are so many options on the menu (they even have all kinds of skewers, which is rare to find in a Japanese buffet restaurant!). Sashimi is always very fresh and comes on thick slices. I especially love their mentaiko items because the sauce is super umami! Would definitely recommend :)

Roll Up On ‘Em @shinminorisg sushi rolls, such as the Temptation Maki (tempura prawn, avocado & cream cheese) and California Maki were passable, but ultimately very forgettable. Shin Minori’s sashimi is definitely much better, thanks to the fabulously fresh fish on offer, so I’d definitely stick with that if forced to choose. But wait! With #burpplebeyond, you ain’t gotta choose! @burpple Beyond has got 1-for-1 on @shinminorisg lunch & dinner buffets, so you can savagely stuff yourself with superb sushi & sterling sashimi, plus a whole lot of other food options as well! Thank you for having me @shinminorisg, and thanks @burpple for letting me tag along!

Sashimi MORE-iwase There’s like a million other Japanese buffets out there, but Shin Minori aims to carve out a slice of the over saturated pie by offering a very affordable Omizu lunch/dinner buffet. Better yet, it’s on Burpple Beyond, so a buffet for two is well worth the money invested! Of course, when you’re at a Japanese restaurant that does sushi or sashimi, you get both without a second of hesitation. Shin Minori’s sashimi moriwase (yes, the whole dang platter is part of the buffet!) sees six different cast members of The Little Mermaid sharing space on a really yuge and kinda heavy bowl. The slices are generously thick and every last slice is fantastically fresh too! With Burpple Beyond, you get one 1-for-1 dinner buffet, and two lunch buffets at Shin Minori’s Marine Parade outpost. Hey, that’s pretty good! Thanks for hosting us Shin Minori, and thanks for the invite Burpple!

Breakfast Done Right! We happened to discover Oh Deli quite by accident and what an accident it was. From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Even at a first glance, the menu isn't fancily done. But what it lack on these aesthetics was made up 100% by the food. Omelette ($10.90) Freshly made and piping hot, the omelette isn't your fold over, elegant omelette. These are more, cook-in-a-skillet, hearty, home made omelettes and it tasted like it too. Made with really fresh ingredients, it was lightly seasoned and allowed each ingredient to be nicely highlighted. Simple, fuss free, hearty and satisfying. Egg Island ($14.50 + $4.00 for additional grilled mushroom) This feels like the ultimate comfort British breakfast. Baked beans were nicely cooked, soft without being mushy. The poached egg was perfect. And I mean PERFECT! The white wrapped around the yolk beautifully and the yolk was nice, thick and runny. Sour dough was pretty good without being too sour (which I personally prefer). The mushrooms were well cooked with minimal seasoning but was packed with flavor and the sausage was so so so good. Not overly seasoned, the sausage had a great meat to fat ratio and was nicely coarse. Yummy! The food here was very well done. Slightly on the mid-price side due to most of their ingredients being organic or free ranged (which is better than paying for for "fancy" all day breakfasts) but what they did was make a good hearty breakfast... well... good and hearty without being overly fancy or hipsterish. Will definitely recommend you check out this place if you're around the area and Oh! (All pun intended), it's also a grocery store so you can grab some really great ingredients while waiting for your food to be served too!

Ham And Cheese Sandwich ($7.90 Takeaway) Premium Italian leg ham with some solid cheddar compressed together between 2 buttered slices of multigrain toast. A take on the classic sandwich really does not get better than this!

Always A Flavourful Fun Time Here. If it’s been a while since you’ve ventured into the CBD for a meal, I reckon now’s the perfect time as it’s actually very pleasant in the evenings without the office crowds (most are still WFH). That’s why I’d suggested Roketto Izakaya by Willin Low to Annette for our overdue catch-up. I desperately wanted everything on his Modern Singaporean (Mod Sin) menu. All of the food looked so good! But since there was just the two of us, it wasn’t humanly possible. Tried our best though, kicking off with the insanely crunchy Har Jeong Pork Keropok dipped in aromatic mayo ($8.90). It must be some kind of an unwritten rule that anyone who walks in has to order this because as the evening progressed, I noticed it kept appearing on every table. We each had a serving of the Scallop “Her Kiao” Glass Noodles to ourselves - honestly, it’s too delicious to share. Initially, when I read that it contains peanut butter, my eyebrows rose in skepticism. They fell immediately after my first bite - wow... it works beautifully with the spicy marmite sauce. And the scallops in the springy fish paste skin were excellent ($9.80). A must-order. Trust Willin a.k.a. the “Godfather of Mod Sin” to come up with a Prata Pizza topped with Miso Spring Onions and Three Cheeses ($13.80). I was rolling my eyes in pleasure while inhaling the fragrant, flaky-crispy thing. His “atas” take on Chinese-style Satay was also a delight. It featured grilled Iberico Secreto pork topped with a Javanese satay sauce and finished with pineapple shallot salsa ($10.80 for 2 heftier-than-average sticks). There’s a very good reason why Roketto’s “Orh Luak” Oyster Omelette Spaghettini ($20) kept popping up on so many people’s IG Stories throughout the Circuit Breaker - IT’S DAMN TASTY LAH! I implore you to do yourself a favour and try this ASAP. But take note, the “hae bee hiam” sambal pulls no punches. I wolfed down the Asian Tofu and Mesclun Salad with sesame dressing. Yes, it ain’t roketto science (haha, see what I did there? 😆) but I liked the simple yet flavourful mix. If you are into all things Mod Sin, here’s an exciting piece of news. @nutmegandclove is doing a Cocktail Pop-Up at Roketto Izakaya from 1st to 31st July (it started yesterday). So don’t procrastinate if you love the sound of Singapore-inspired cocktails to pair. Swiftly secure a booking for maximum Mod Sin mayhem by calling: 6904 5458 OR WhatsApp-ing: 8189 6417.

Shots! Shots! Shots! ($4.50 each) Forget tequila. These days, it’s this kind of shots that get me more hyped up. I must be getting old 😂😂 Served warm, Roketto Izakaya’s savoury collagen-rich fish broth goes down smoother than any liquid measurable in ABV (“alcohol by volume). And it’s no less intoxicating. Instead of the usual sidekicks of a lemon slice and salt, this shot has a puffy homemade omu fish cake on a skewer as an accompaniment. Sure, you can straight up munch it, but I prefer the golden pouf dunked in the broth for the same reason I consider “tau pok” the real star in any bowl of Laksa and Curry Mee - to exist at its peak potential as the most flavourful piece of sponginess ever. At only $4.50 per glass, having a couple of rounds is too easy. Which is why I decided to bookend my meal with this lusciously tasty soup. To make a reservation, please call 6904 5458.

Roketto Oyster Omelette Spaghettini ($22.80+) Can’t decide between oyster omelette (or luak) or pasta? Try Relish’s Roketto Oyster Omelette Spaghettini ($22.80+). Having seen this making its rounds on Instagram, I was determined to give this dish a try. Imagine the combination of fresh oysters, omelette and spicy hae bee hiam (dried shrimp sambal) in a pasta dish. I was truly taken away by this. The hae bee hiam was indeed very spicy (especially for those who can’t handle chilli so well) and had strong umami flavour, but it didn’t challenge my taste buds in any way. There’s a good amount of egg batter and fresh, plump oysters in the dish. I can imagine having this when dining in. The or luak batter would’ve been so crispy. It’s a wonderful spin on the timeless East Asian classic and a testament of how good Mod-Sin cuisine can be. Purists may balk at the idea but they may change their mind after eating this. Available during CB for takeaway and delivery.

Relish Breakfast Plate One of the best things to eat after a workout. This lovely platter ($20.80) came with eggs (normally scrambled but I requested poached), sourdough, cherry tomatoes, a sausage, mushrooms and roasted potatoes. The poached egg didn't have that flowy lava explosion unfortunately. But usually these eggs are a hit or miss. Still, letting the yolk soak into the sourdough made the exchange from scrambled to poached worth it. The tomatoes were plump and juicy with well-cooked, tender mushrooms. The sausage was so juicy it dripped juices as I cut into it. And the roast potatoes were so crispy without being oily. I loved the decor and ambience of this cafe, with windows letting natural sunlight stream in, real plants hanging everywhere and very vintagey decorations. The restaurant was quiet and peaceful, and my dining partner and I had such a cosy, intimate brunch. :)

Seafood Burger Finally tried Relish by Wild Rocket!!!!! I had the seafood burger with lemon mayo, fries and a salad! The burger itself was definitely the star of the show and the portion is HUUUUUGE could probably share amongst 2 people! The patty was thick and packed with chunks of squid, prawns, crab and fish, all breaded and fried into one glorious patty on top of a toasted bun! Fries were average, crispy but nothing to shout about but the salad was pretty good! There was a citrusy vinaigrette and it complemented the punchy flavours of the seafood burger perfectly! Relish also offers other mains such as pasta, breakfast items and fish and chips but I would definitely recommend the burgers - they have a huge selection of innovate flavours like char siew burger on focaccia, and a Ramlee burger (that has been upgraded from your regular Ramly burger!). Price-wise the burger ended up at around $28 after tax so it’s slightly pricey but the big portions make up for it! Do come down and try it for yourself, the ambience was cozy and relaxed, definitely a place to hit up if you have the cash to spare!

C&C&C&C Pasta🍝 🚘DELIVERY🚘 📍The Masses📍 💸 C&C&C&C Pasta (main size): $19.90 💸 Duck Confit: $18.90 💸 The Masses Lu Rou Fan: $16.90 💸 The Masses Ramen: $20.90 💸 Char Siew Lamb Rib Rice Bowl: $18.90 💸 Morel & Ikura: $13.90 💸 Mix Bread: $3.50 💸 Mix Umami Butter & Caramel Kaya: $3.50 💸 Mimolette Cheese Carrot Cake: $9 ... Mother’s Day feasting continues with delivered food from The Masses - affordable french cuisine with an asian flair and happy food for our tummies🤰Pretty much enjoyed almost every dish but some really stood out more than the others. The C&C&C&C Pasta was a personal favourite, with that rich and decadent sauce. We would have love to inhale an entire portion by ourselves but with that rich flavour profile, it’s best if it remains as a sharing dish😂 Also enjoyed the duck confit with its crispy skin and paired with “wok hey” rice noodles but if only we could have a bit more of the rice noodles...Special mention goes to the unami butter and caramel kaya🧈- omg only ordered a small portion to go with the bread but hitting ourselves hard right now for not ordering the big bottles of butter so we could dip our spoons into and have them anytime we want🤤

The Masses Islandwide Delivery. The Masses is very well known for their Braised Purple Cabbage ($14.90) and the C&C&C&C Pasta ($19.90, main course size, additional $7 for uni pictured), but there's something really good as well - The Massess Ramen ($20.90). That yellowish bag at the background contains the broth for the ramen, meant to be heated before pouring over. That way, you get hot piping ramen with ingredients just nicely done (not overcooked or soggy). Broth was refreshing, with lots of yuzu. 🔸 Delivery fee is quite low. I stay about 18km away from the restaurant, and the delivery fee was only $5 (most restaurants I see charge from $8 to $20 if minimum order is not met).

Modern Local Style Ordered dinner from @restaurantibid last weekend through WhatsApp Ibid-Style 8 Treasure Duck (S$118) Interesting texture with water chestnut and chestnut in it, the texture of the rice wasn’t what one usually expect for traditional Chinese style. Cheese Shaobing (S$7) Got to heat up to get the lava like melted cheese which harden quite fast. Lion’s Head Meatball Scallion Noodle HK-Style Curry (S$38) The surprise was inside the meatball - curry gravy Pork Fat Rice Crispy Lard Scallion (S$12) If only the lard was light and crispy with crackling sounds Shaoxing Creamed Spinach (S$12) Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookie ($7) Very soft and rich although nana remarked that it tasted like got peanut butter inside Black Rice Baked Mochi Cake (S$28) Reminded one of Pulut Hitam (Black Glutinous Rice Sweet Soup) Kaya Ice Cream (S$19) Braised Squid and Peanut Butter Zhajiang Noodle (S$26) It was very rich and got jelat easily. Kind of too salty too. Think 🤔 would be best if sauce and noodles packed separately. Felt that it didn’t survive the trip well.

For Eclectic And Adventurously Tasty Food G I F T For those who aren’t ready to dine out yet in Phase 2 of Singapore’s post-Circuit Breaker, you’ll be pleased to know @restaurantibid is continuing with their takeaway/delivery menu until Sunday, 28th June. On offer is an eclectic spread that’s full of delicious surprises, so I suggest ordering an assortment of items that catch your eye and graze across them. Here’s what Chef-owner @woowaileong selected for my dinner last Thursday: 1. Shao Bing - This has been on the menu since Ibid opened for business but has been tweaked and refined over time. It’s currently available with two kinds of fillings: sweetish shredded Wagyu Beef and Cheese with scallions. I preferred the latter because of the savoury taste and I thought the oozy creaminess was marvelous with the chewy dough. 2. Ibid-Style 8 Treasure Duck - Deboned, the #duck is stuffed with fluffy sticky rice mixed with a generous amount of chopped up “lap cheong”, mushrooms, chestnuts and more, which pretty much qualifies it as a one-dish meal too. I enjoyed it most with the bright chilli sauce served alongside. By the way, the caramelised skin is not meant to be crispy. 3. Five-Spice Roast Spring Chicken - A classic done with a Chinese twist. If you aren’t fond of the coriander powder-heavy seasoning, you might want to skip this as it’s liberally rubbed all over. 4. The 50/50 Potato Purée - Super smooth, buttery and creamy, it was beloved by everyone. 5. Shaoxing Creamed Spinach - The Chinese spin put on this popular steakhouse side got it more appetisingly nuanced. 6. Lao Gan Ma Slaw - Did the chilled crunchy cabbage improve from a spike of savoury Oriental-style heat? You bet it did. 7. Mapo Tofu - Like I suspected, this turned out to be one of my favourites. Supremely fragrant and controlled in spiciness, Ibid’s had more structure than most renditions that tend to veer into mushiness. 8. Pork Fat Rice - Dressed in pork oil, crispy lard and scallions, it’s a most apt and delicious carb for the Mapo Tofu. 9. Lion Head’s Meatball - Formed from seasoned minced pork, the huge thing contained a mild Hongkong-style curry at its core which flowed out once a cut was made. 10. Scallion La Mian - The strands of al dente noodles tossed in scallion oil were a good match for the XXL meatball. 11. Black Glutinous Rice Mochi Cake with Taiwanese Milk Oolong Ice-cream - So utterly perfect in its uniqueness and taste, I was inspired to do a stand-alone post about this dessert (please go have a read). The cake is incredible bare but when served a la mode, it took things up a few notches. 12. Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookie - The other (and rather unexpected) favourite of mine from this meal, I would go so far as to call it THE BEST chewy cookie I’ve had in the past few months. Don’t hesitate to hit up Restaurant Ibid to get your order in.

The Biggest Surprise Of All Was This Chocolate Chip & Walnut Cookie G I F T The other (and rather unexpected) favourite of mine from the meal I had from Ibid was this huge cookie. In fact, I would go so far as to call it THE BEST chewy cookie I’ve had in the past few months. The chocolate chips are gooey and the fresh tasting nuts add a very enjoyable light crunch.
