Strategically located right outside flower dome, it’s the most convenient food option after a long day. & the best thing is?? It’s so good! Totally worth the wait :-) maybe skip the shakes, they are too too sweet….

I thought their DTF 排骨炒饭is already fantabulously amazing but THIS is on a whole new level. The sauce is savoury, full of braised flavour, soaked into the lamian kinda noodles. Wokhey is there, green onion adds a good touch, pork is tender. What more can I say.

Say real, genmaicha is the best drink from Hvala. It has this roasted smell that gives this drink so many layers. LOVE IT

Comes with 1 base (skip the soba noodles, it’s clumpy & mushy), 1 HOT protein (ordered the masala chicken or smth like that & it’s not bad!), 1 deli + 4 veggie/crunchie

HIGHLIGHT HIGHLIGHT HIGHLIGHT of fookkin

The Hakka noodles reminds me of the kolo mee I had at my grandparents’ place, back in Malaysia. It’s not a smth you can find easily in Singapore and I’m so so so happy fookkin/roast paradise made it happen.

STORY TIME: a customer mistook the staff for not adding sauce to his noodles judging based on its look. Fret not sir, it’s colourless but it is PACKED with flavours (esp the lard.... oh goodness 🤤)

10/10 must order

Tip: if you’re already ordering their platter or rice/noodle bowl (if not what are you there for man!!) you might wanna skip this. It’s basically roasted meat with the fried mantou!! I appreciate that the mantou isn’t too oily (there’s enough sinful fats from the charsiew/ siew yoke, heyyy not complaining tho!!!)

Here’s the trick tho, in the siewyoke mantou, it comes with pickles cucumber or smth like that. In the charsiew mantou, it comes with their mustard sauce and in the dang gui ya, there’s a pickled radish. I like how all these touches help to reduce the gelak-ness HAHA. Love it actually!!!

they are HELLA generous with their salted egg sauce. The lotus root is fried till crispy yet the slight sweetness of lotus root isn’t lost. Remember to eat them fast!! They are so generous with the sauce that the chips turn soggy pretty soggy

One thing tho.... it doesn’t taste like salted egg sauce, more like a sweet & savory butter sauce hehe, but I still like it regardless

We were lucky to get a table on a weekend despite walking in so rmb to reserve when you wanna eat there!!

Really tender beef, really fragrant rice that’s drizzled with truffle shoyu topped with crispy fried garlic (smth u don’t usually find in beef dons & is a zhng). Would say it’s a nice bowl but I wished the portion was larger, it wasn’t enough for me needless to say my huge guy friends 😢😂 Can try if you can’t find seats at chomp chomp & if they have seats (hahaha, that was us)

Had my first ever devil chicken on Taiwan & I AM SO HAPPY THIS CAME TO SG. In Taiwan, the locals would highly recommend devil chicken & it’s the OG. Still the same old thick ass juicy chicken. Though it’s chest meat, it’s as tender as it can get!!!

Ahhh Han’s... the VERY overpriced hawker food, $8 was on promotion already. But undeniably, it’s tough to find Hainanese pork chop like these, fried with the mixed vegetable and drenched in tangy sweet tomato sauce. I would say I throughly enjoyed this dish, wok hey is prominent but 💸

Used Burpple for this which came with a salad, soup, 2 gyozas and a drink!!

Fish is fresh, portion is alright for $15 & Aso how often do you see abalone and scallop in an afforadable kaisendon!!

Ngl we were q confused by the seaweed hahaha, it’s usually eaten with soup in ramen but ya it’s there :p

Taniki raw hardly disappoints, still that old good fragrant Tanuki Raw mixed rice, still that good old truffled and nicely seared beef, still that fresh & large variety of salmon. One down side though, their lunch bowls became much smaller than I remember

Still love it, still my go to orchard central food but more Xin tong now :p
