T-Bone Probably inspired by its moniker, the restaurant’s interior sees glossy black marble counters and tabletops, giving off a sleek, classy vibe. We decided to order lightly, intending to do justice to the main event - the steak. Naturally, it arrives on a wooden board, sliced and grilled to a nice shade of rust and brown, with oil glistening off it. Accompanying it is a bulb of roasted garlic and some plump cherry tomatoes, which explodes juice on the first bite. The T-Bone was pretty quality beef, with tension and flavour which you could further amplify by adding salt in varying sodium levels on the side. Black Marble is a nice neighbourhood eatery, though without the pricing like one, and without the pedigree of a high class steakhouse. But hey, this makes for a decent meal nonetheless, and you could always head over to the nearby ice cream parlours for dessert too, if you’re on a date and would like to end the evening on a sweet note.

Lobster & Scallop Saffron Risotto I felt this was overrated, couldn’t see what the hype was all about. Whilst good, this Lobster & Scallop Saffron Risotto felt fairly textbook. Rice was of the right texture and soaked nicely in smoked mullet bottarga zest and has a savoury, lobster bisque taste. Both the lobster and seafood was grilled to perfection, retaining both its freshness and flavour.

My Favourite 😋 I love me a good foie gras but the rendition here is served with blueberry compote which I found rather queer, as it has a slight almost herbal-like taste to it that just can’t seem to fit right in. But the foie gras itself had a crispness on its edge, that crunches and melts once it enters your mouth. It did come with slow-roasted duck breast too, which was flavourful and tender, and some sprouts of greens which I happily tossed to the side hahah

Batang (Mackerel) Sliced Fish Soup Fresh, thick and succulent slices of mackerel, tang o, thin slices of ginger and garnished with fried shallots in a soup full of sweetness and goodness. One of the few places I would think of should I crave for a bowl of sliced fish soup. There's always a queue so be prepared to brave the heat for this worthwhile bowl of fish soup. We added minced pork and we definitely made the right choice. Another thing I liked was their salted fermented soy bean (tau cheo) chili dip 》$10/large + $0.50 Minced Pork + $0.50 Rice

For Premium Garoupa And Minced Meat Soup Come as early as you can (before 11am) to avoid the queue at this Upper Serangoon Road stall. Everyone's here for a premium version of fish soup — they use Red Garoupa or Pomfret. The Red Garoupa Fish Soup (from $9) features more than 10 slices of fish and tang oh in a beautifully sweet broth. Comparatively, the Pomfret Fish Soup (from $11) is pricier but will suit pomfret-lovers well. Add bak chor for $0.50 for a substantial boost to your meal! P.s. Also try the Mixed Soup (from $5) with prawns, fishcakes, fish maw and mackerel. Photo by Burppler Wei Zhi Chiang

New Family Favourite We have tried various combo but our favourite is still the batang with minced pork ($6/$8/$10) with additional $0.50 for the bak chor. This $8 bowl comes with lots of thickly sliced fish and vegetables. The higher price tag is justified by the sheer quality and quantity. Do come before 11am or else be prepared to wait an hour.

Elegant Strokes Of Minimalism This was a beautifully minimalistic lounge, underscored by tasteful strokes of vintage romanticism. In the same vein, their cocktails were minimalistic in ingredients in a bid to avoid convoluted flavours — the poetically named 𝗤𝘂𝗶𝗲𝘁 𝗜𝗻𝗹𝗲𝘁 静江($25) was a striking example of this idealism. - Umeshu and rum melded elegantly into a lightly sweet and fruity concoction. Then granny smith apple bled, ever so slightly, into the mixture and imbuing an understatedly sour vibrancy which was ideally complementary of the spirit base. Little excitement was apparent but perhaps as the name suggested, it's a gentle drink meant to evoke an air of introspective zen. ----- [𝙊𝙪𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙢 𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙠] 𝙇𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙞𝙘𝙚 📍 𝟮𝟬 𝗕𝘂𝗸𝗶𝘁 𝗣𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗵 𝗥𝗱, 𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝟬𝟴𝟵𝟴𝟯𝟰 ⏱️ (Mon-Thurs) 6pm-1am, (Fri-Sat) 6pm-2am ; 𝒄𝒍𝒐𝒔𝒆𝒅 𝒐𝒏 𝑺𝒖𝒏𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔

Ebi & Corn Sando ($22++) H O S T E D This new bar speaks in a quieter, more modulated tone than its sister bar - Jigger & Pony. She exudes a low-key yet unmissable worldly confidence. In terms of aesthetics, she oozes eyeball-grabbing mid-century Western-meets-Japanese style, mixing handpicked vintage pieces with admirable nonchalance. Knowing our moods, Live Twice is versatile, offering different seating arrangements to suit. Her cocktails, crafted in the Japanese spirit of shokunin by Group Beverage Director @bartenderaki and female Head Bartender @woofyinying are meant to satisfy the two sides we are known to have: the life we live for ourselves, and the one for our dreams. So there’s a list of the classics (but done with a twist) and another featuring concoctions inspired by fantasy and here’s a fascinating fact, named after geishas. Although the cocktails are the stars at Live Twice, the compact food menu boasts gems like Wasabi Cheese Terrine (this is fantastic with the “Vesper” cocktail it seems) and Tuna Katsu ($22++). My number one pick though has to be the extremely tasty Ebi & Corn Sando ($22++) shown above. The thick prawn and corn cutlet was outrageously sweet, juicy and crunchy. Definitely the munchie to get when you’re feeling peckish.

Quiet Inlet ($25) Okay new favourite here. Kayuki ume spirits, kill devil long pond rum, Granny Smith Apple. It is a spirit-forward, intriguing concoction I can’t get enough of. Right up my curious palate’s alley.
