Mango Sticky Rice I admit I am a sucker for Mango Sticky Rice whenever I come across one. No doubt I had tried this one too at Thai鈥檇 Me Up. The mango is quite sweet, the glutinous rice comes in a very manageable portion size, and the taste was, well, authentic (not too sure if anywhere else serves Mango Sticky Rice with deviated taste profile). However, instead of sprinkling the crispy rice grains on the famous Thai dessert, the one I had came with white sesame seeds, and that changed the satisfaction level a bit. Although the sesame seeds still gives out a nice fragrance as I chewed, there seemed to be a slight mismatch of the sweetness against the fragrance. Factoring in the fact that their Mango Sticky Rice was sold at S$7.90, I might go for something else in the dessert menu if I were to revisit the next time.

Beef Kway Teow The Beef Kway Teow (S$13.90) was known to be Thai鈥檇 Me Up鈥檚 house special. Unlike the usual Kway Teow that has more 鈥渨ok hei鈥 than this one here, what I had was flat rice noodles that were still springy (i.e. not dry from the heat) that was mildly sweet, fried together with veggies, egg and tender sliced beef. The strength of flavours was considered mild, but that did not equate to disappointment. In fact, the portion was seemingly good for one diner, with that little space in the stomach set aside for desserts. And while Thai鈥檇 Me Up offers privileges from the Entertainer app, I thought the overall satisfaction did not justify for the low Saturday lunch crowd.

A4 Kumamoto Wagyu Beef ($80/pax). Dashi Master Marusaya serves shabu shabu is good dashi stock using fresh ingredients imported from Japan, such as kombu from Hokkaido and bonito flakes freshly shaved from aged dried katsuobushi. 馃敻 While the soup is great, the meats for the shabu shabu could be rather disappointing. The A4 wagyu from Kumamoto was tender but it's sweetness didn't evoke much excitement from me, and considerably pricey considering there weren't many slices of the wagyu for a $160 plate. 馃敻 Which reminded me I very much preferred @tamashii_robataya for their shabu shabu, where they serve higher quality A5 Saga wagyu for around the same price, in shabu stock that are also very delicious. 馃敻馃敻 #foodphotography #fujifilm #burpple #sgjapfood #sgfoodies #sgfood #foodsg #instasg #foodstagram #instafood #instafood_sg #f52grams #hungrygowhere #japanesefood #sgfoodblogger #vscofood #sgig #cafehoppingsg #eeeeeats #burpplesg #鏅┿仈銇倱 #澶曘仈椋 #澶溿仈銇倱 #kumamotobeef #銇嗐仭椋层伩 #銇娿亞銇℃櫓閰 #鍜岄 #shabushabu #hotpot #a4wagyu

The Sun King Won鈥檛 Go Belly Up Situated strategically along the stretch of bars & other watering holes stretching towards Clarke Quay, Sun King Ryoriya doesn鈥檛 just capitalise upon the multitude of Japanese residents livin鈥 in the 鈥榟ood, it preys upon alcoholics staggering around in search of some sustenance. As @veronicaphua put it succinctly: Sun King does Taiwanese classics, but in Japanese style. One example would be their signature pork belly with garlic sauce ($20++, small). It鈥檚 a simple dish of thinly sliced poached pork belly jazzed up with a little garlic sauce. Even though the pork belly is simply boiled, there is no offensive odour, and the pork is tastefully tender with just that little bit of firmness to give pleasure to the chew. The garlic sauce is Sun King鈥檚 rendition of the traditional garlic sauce with a Japanese flair to it. It鈥檚 a little chili oil, garlic oil and god knows what else mixed together, but the end result is undeniably umami. Plus, it鈥檚 a rather aesthetic dish, so your camera can tuck in too.
