Ondeh Ondeh Soufflé Pancake The Ondeh Ondeh ($16++) Soufflé Pancake was covered in lashings of pandan-flavoured custard and a good drizzle of gula melaka syrup. Each mouthful like a kueh-flavoured fluff.

The Newest Branch Of Antoinette Is Open! H O S T E D Antoinette has just opened an outlet in Millenia Walk. This much-loved made-in-Singapore brand by Chef Pang Kok Keong is bound to be welcomed with open arms by folks working in the surrounding offices and living in the area. Launching on 1st Oct is the Breakfast Menu (available on weekdays, 8am to 11am) that offers freshly baked Butter Croissant and Pain au Chocolat ($3.50 each), a hearty Classic Breakfast plate ($12), Scrambled Eggs with sausage mushroom gravy and a Smoked Salmon with poached egg (the latter two have other trimmings too making them very worth it for $10). If you want to grab and go, the six options in the “Le Menu Sandwich” (available from 8am to 5pm on weekdays), has different combos of breads (all made in-house) and proteins you can pick from. A big hit with us was the Egg Muffin ($5), Chef Pang’s take on a popular fast food breakfast item. His Chicken Foccacia ($8) which has sous vide chicken breast, cheddar cheese, pesto butter and lettuce between the Italian bread is another solid choice. My personal fave though was the Ondeh Ondeh Kaya Toast ($6) where light-as-air pandan kaya, gula melaka and cold French butter make magic with crunchy Italian ciabatta. The Millenia Walk outlet of Antoinette is also the only one with a Crepe Menu now. They do sweet and savoury versions of it built on a base of the very thin classic French-style buckwheat pancake. Meat-lovers should opt for the Sierra ($18) as it comes with Serrano ham. Fans of smoked salmon should try the Nordic ($18) while those whose palate favour Asian flavours will likely find the Okonomiyaki-inspired Tokyo Crepe ($18) enjoyable. If you love Soufflé Pancakes, you need to order the NEW Earl Grey Bubble Tea ($14) pronto. It’s a lot like eating clouds perfumed with the bergamot oil scented tea coupled with QQ pearls. “Heavenly” is probably the best word to describe this creation.

Nonya Dishes Been wanting to try this for awhile and it was shiok! Atas version of nonya caipng, I love, but not well-versed in this cuisine - but every dish was pretty well executed to me. Quite a good variety of dishes to pick from and there’s an interesting kerabu (salad) section. The prices turned out ok, ranging from $5-10. Everything would’ve been about $15/pax, with the exception of the fish (swipe to see!) which we happily ordered without checking the price 😂 The fish was firm flaky and nicely crisp and flavour - which was good, but was very, very pricey. My favourite was the yam cake, which was nicely fried, soft and you could still taste the chunks of yam; hae cho with bits of fresh prawns in deep fried bean curd skin; chapchye was also very flavourful and texture was soft with a bit of bite from the black fungus. Go for the tender beef rendang! Ayam Buahkeluak was earthy but rather light while the chicken was undoubtedly tender and succulent. We also ordered a soup - the meatball was juicy and well seasoned, tho we weren’t a fan of the soup itself which had a hint of alkaline taste. Good for groups if you like sharing and trying a bit of everything. Wouldn’t mind coming back once in awhile!
Hits And Misses For Now But They Are Sincere About Improving And That Is A Great Sign Four ladies and fourteen small plates of Peranakan food. That was the final count at lunch with my three food-loving friends. I love how Milly‘s initial concern about us having ordered too much food was put to rest by Gail’s quick-thinking comment to divide the twelve different dishes by four - “We would each order three dishes anyway”. Mathematics FTW. My favourites from the spread would be the Belimbing Pork (its thick gravy which is high-in-acidity and thus very sour, was the perfect foil for the soft chunks of fatty pork belly), Cinchalok Bomb (recommended by Angeline, the crunchy-on-the-outside ball of beancurd was deliciously savoury and umami) as well as all four of the assorted Kerabu (Asian salad) we had chosen. There were a few items that we found lacking, namely the Sotong Hitam, Belachan Chicken and Sambal Brinjal. When a staff came by to enquire about our meal, we shared our honest feedback. This was done in the spirit of hoping the team will want to work on improving the dishes, and not because we wanted to complain for the sake of complaining. To our surprise, when it came to payment, those items were omitted from our bill. Even though we protested and insisted on paying for them, she stood firm, explaining that since the eatery is still new and in the process of tweaking recipes, the management takes every customer’s feedback very seriously. Moreover, she pointed out, we hadn’t eaten much of those said dishes either. Wow, we were really impressed by this. One thing’s for sure, Belimbing Superstar gets a star from us for their service.
These cincalok bombs were my favourite. They tasted like the pork dumplings my Poh Poh use to make except these are on steroids. So yummy.
