Cold hair pasta tossed in aromatic truffle oil and garnished with mushrooms and a grating of black truffle FOR JUST $10? Sign me up please. Pasta is of restaurant-quality and I would honestly pay more than just $10 for this (but please don’t increase the prices, us broke people need to be able to indulge in some cheap thrills once in awhile). Very worth the money, highly recommend.

Perhaps it was fate or just impeccable timing as this show was aired when I was doing my research on places to eat around Camden market, which made my planning much easier. Though there was a slight drizzle when we were there, it didn’t stop us from having their signature Fettuccine Alfredo (£6.50). Pasta that’s freshly made from scratch always triumph pre-made ones and that’s what you’re gonna get here. Cooked in a creamy white wine sauce, the fettuccine is able to latch onto the sauce perfectly as you get a myriad of flavours from each slurp. The addition of Parmesan, garlic and chives rounds up this humble yet soul-comforting bowl of pasta.

This modern Asian interpretation of the Thai curry that is now prepared with duck confit, Thai basil and crispy rice, is an absolute joy to eat. A slight spiciness in this creamy curry with the crispy duck meat and rice provided a flavour bomb with differencing texture from each bite. The addition of the Thai basil gave it a refreshing lift to complement the other heavy flavours as well.

To balance the meal, I also ordered the Broccoli (£5.50) that is pan-fried with hazelnuts, anchovies, sage and lemon butter. When the vegetables are equally delicious as to the meats and seafoods, you know this is a restaurant that you have to visit at least once when in Glasgow.

It was so good that I went back twice during my stay in the UK. Pictured is the Grilled Cheese Sandwich (£3.75) with added bacon. What I like about Five Guys is that you can literally customize your own burger with a million over combinations with the various free toppings from lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms to sauces such as ketchup, hot sauce and even bbq sauce. Just thinking about the loaded with ingredients and greasy burger is making my mouth water.

This is the second poke bowl from A Poke Theory which I've chosen with the mealpal app that let's you "pre-buy" 11 or 14 meals at a set price. Ingredients here are shoyu tuna, Wakame, carrots,lettuce, almonds, cucumber, corn and sweet pineapple.

The base is lettuce so it made for a portion which was just right! Servings are generous but there could be more fish (I guess if you customized it yourself you can add more). Taste wise it was fresh and crunchy with each bite and the pineapples, almonds and wakame added a good mix of texture.

Would come back! It's more worth it with mealpal but I really enjoyed my lunches here. There's also plenty of seating (:

Went back to sarnies for brunch and to use the entertainer 1-for-1, which applies to most menu items. We got an acai bowl and the truffle scrambled eggs on toast. Having been here before and left with a good experience with the big breakfast fry-up, I had high hopes! However, there two dishes were pretty standard. It's alright with the entertainer but I wouldn't pay full price. The iced flat white was great though!

soon huat 02-18. one of the cheapest tastiest lor mee around. and I don't even really like lor mee. for best results, mix the flat lor mee with thin beehoon, and douse liberally with garlic and vinegar.

This time a bit mushier than usual but still wonderfully crispy on the outside. Recommended if you like your carrot cake soft and tasty, in minute pieces.

Very quiet and romantic on weekday nights! Comfy cushioned couches to snuggle with your special someone and not so comfy day beds facing the sea. Al fresco but giant ceiling fans keep you cool. 2pc instrumental band playing good vibes. Smooth rum cocktails. Lovely "away from it all" and private hideout feeling.

Hidden gem in Far East plaza - I love this place so much that I was tempted not to share the location. It’s a pretty understated place but the quality is amazing and it has quickly become one of my go-to places for affordable food in town. The prawns are live and sourced daily, so they’re Super fresh and usually a little bigger than this!!! If you’re into bayou (pork lard), this white bee Hoon will be right up your alley.

Not all kopis are equal, and when you find a good one it's a keeper. Kopi-c kosong ping has just the right amount of sweetness and flavour. Block 226H Kebun Bahru market #01-11. Recommended!
