This is a relatively new item on their menu. I ordered level 3 which is the max spiciness. It is legit spicy but similar to most mala in Singapore, lacks the authentic numbing pepper taste. I would recommend sticking to their normal spicy Mazesoba if you like spicy food (covered in my previous review) . Noodles here are thick and have a chewy bite to them, and the chopped garlic gives the dressing a nice kick.

I have been coming here regularly for their original (truffle) mazesoba ($13.90++) but decided to try something new yesterday... I love mentaiko anything but this was wayyyy too jelak with the creamy mayo and gooey egg. This is my preferred restaurant for mazesoba as the noodle that they use is thinner than other mazesoba shops (I generally like thinner noodles). I also love the fatty sio bak that accompanies their original and mentaiko mazesoba. They also serve various rice bowls and soup ramen for people who dont like dry noodles.

Yet another lovely lunch, this time featuring seasonal giant clam so fresh it was still moving when the chef tapped it! I love the sushi is served to you piece by piece, like how it should be done. For an ultra luxe experience, I recommend adding on the wagyu ($68++).

This pub serves typical coffeeshop western fare such as chicken chop and breaded fish (as pictured) during lunch. You get a choice of two sides (eg. Potato salad, coleslaw, mac cheese, aglio olio pasta, etc). Just across from Hong Lim Park (same row as Punch cafe) so it's a great option if you're in the CBD and craving some comfort food in an air conditioned setting. Massive portions too! I couldn't finish my fish!

πŸ’‘ : high bar stools only
πŸ’‘πŸ’‘ : The kitchen seems inexperienced at handling high volume. Expect a long wait (30min) if there are more than four tables.

This is a new addition to the menu, so tasty and a perfect starter for sharing. Sadly it only comes with four pieces of bread (I think 6 would be just nice to mop up the ingredients) and they actually wanted to charge us additional $4 when we asked if we could have more bread. Pls don't be so cheap! It's bread!

Had this the last time too, but who can fault you for wanting to have this twice in a row? You're advised to have the pasta plain first before pouring the squid ink over. If you order the $38++ or $48++ Lunch Set, you have to pay a supplement of $12 for this pasta course.

I wasn't thrilled about the presentation (arrived in a plastic bag) but the taste was faultless. A blob of creamy burrata, juicy hokkaido scallop, a fat asari clam, all brought together by some kind of tomato stew. Lovely.

Who doesn't love laksa pasta? The laksa sauce used at this new halal bistro at Bedok Point tastes strongly of hay bee (dried shrimp) and garlic, which many locals may find tasty. In fact you can find tiny minced bits of hay bee in the sauce, especially towards the end. Could do with more laksa leaves though! You get a choice of spaghetti or penne. Comes with 4x shrimp, a bit rubbery (frozen kind) but a reasonable size. Definitely ordering this again ❀️

πŸ’‘The lifts in this mall are an absolute disaster. Use the escalator for best results.

Not exactly a cafe, more like a restaurant with a cosy cafe vibe, with couches and indoor greenery. Huge variety of local style drinks available so you're not limited to the usual angmo cafe drinks. Fantastic addition to the East. Try the food too!

If you come in the daytime you'll get a lot more non-steak options in the lunch menu. This was a rather average burger though, with medium thin patty (i like my steaks and burger patties to be chunky). Price of burger is very reasonable compared to burger joints or even cafes, although additional $2++ for cheese is a total scam. To give you an idea of what I like, my favorite burger is at Chop House.

Finally a photo of my fave cut at my fave steakhouse in natural lighting. Chunky, juicy, fatty, and perfectly done med rare. This is one of the few steakhouses in SG where you don't need to "under order" the doneness for them to get it right. I'm not a big eater (max 150g for me) so this 400-500g steak is more than enough for two pax. I also like the tangy house bbq sauce, cos I'm Asian and I always need condiments, even for steak (yes yes, purists be horrified, whatevs).

πŸ’‘ I would advise to skip the sides and appetisers, they are unfortunately all below average, especially the cesar salad which is downright measly. I've tried them all over multiple visits.
