KOKI Tamagoyaki KOKI Tamagoyaki is a Japanese confectionary shop located at B1 of Raffles City. Desserts on display are known as Shuu aka Choux Puffs. 4 flavours were available: Matcha, Black Sesame, Raspberry Rose and Vanilla, each priced at $4.30. Each Shuu is piped with a generous amount of custard filling within a thin layer of crispy croquant. OMG these are so goodddddd and satisfying!

Made a trip down to Raffles City Shopping center to buy these puffs! The store is located at the basement. Just a small shop selling tamagoyaki and choux puffs. The tamagoyaki bentos are quite pricey, however the puffs are decently priced from $4.30. I ordered the Raspberry & Rose and Earl Grey flavor. Seems like earl grey is the new hipster flavor. Earl grey anything everywhere. The pastry to filling ratio is just awesome! So much cream filling~ Both flavors are subtle and not overly strong.

Shu Choux @ $4.30 each Flavours available: Vanilla, Black sesame, Matcha, Earl Grey (Special comeback), Raspberry rose (flavour of the month of July). Had been wanting to try the choux from Koki for a while and it's my first time today! Bought the earl grey and raspberry rose cos they are special flavours. The earl grey tasted light and refreshing - my mum immediately asked for a cup of tea to complement it! The earl grey flavour fills through your nose and lingers in your mouth. Definitely a must try - no wonder this is a special comeback. When I first bit into the raspberry rose choux, my eyes lit up as the flavour was really distinct with a strong rose smell. Sweetness was just right. The raspberry custard had a sweet touch to the tongue and the rose flavour came through the nose and left an aftertaste. This flavour is July's special flavour - MUST DEFINITELY TRY!

Kowloon Bay Hk Cafe Kowloon Bay Hk Cafe is situated at first floor of Hillion Mall. Tried the following dishes: The Signature Fei Po Char Siew Noodle ($9.90) springy noodles topped with a portion of char siew and some vegetables. Croissant with Char Siew ($7.90) which came with a side of salad and fries. The croissant was fluffy and buttery. The char siew gave this dish a savoury twist, which worked really well. Loved the char siew in both dishes. The char siew was charred and fatty, tho it would be better if there was a balance of lean meat and fats. But overall, they were still two great dishes. Last but not least, don’t forget to pair your mains with an iced cold Kowloon Bay Special Drink ($4.50). The milk tea was served in a glass surrounded by a bucket of ice, to ensure that it wouldn’t be diluted even after being left out for awhile. Definitely be back here again!

Truffle Ribeye Bowl with Foie Gras By incorporating whiskeys and wines into a number of their items and dishes, Anarchy Wine + Brew Bar’s revamped menu was perhaps catered to a more mature palate. Hence, hits and misses for me, my favourite was the Truffle Ribeye Bowl with Foie Gras [$22]. A healthy bowl that came with a base of mixed rice or gluten-free quinoa, sous vide egg, bruleed foie gras and hearty Australian ribeye finished off with an earthy truffle glaze. This was a hosted tasting by @thewineanarchy, thanks @Burpple for the invite!

Okay Lah Foie Gras tasted a lil funny tbh, but the rest of the dish was quite okay. $22 is steep but typical, might come back again. Service is meh.

Our dinner spread at Anarchy Wine + Brew Bar last weekend. There were some hits and misses, and we concluded that the Mussel Fritters with Yuzu Miso ($15) and Truffle Ribeye Bowl with Foie Gras ($22) were the more interesting ones. This was a hosted tasting, thanks @burpple for the invite! #burpple #burppletastemaker #flatlay

Chilli Crab Pasta My second time ordering this dish although I usually shun the spicy stuff - and it is pretty spicy as far as chilli crab pastas go. I had to keep a cold drink at hand for the occasional respite from the spice but it is highly appetising as the sauce is also tangy and flavourful. The crab meat is quite tender as well. Comes in both half and full-sized portions which is quite flexible depending on your level of hunger. The sauce is also very generous, which makes you wish you had a few mantous to mop up the remains when the pasta's finished. Tucked out of sight from the main Tanglin road, the restaurant isn't the easiest place to locate, it is worth visiting - an online booking recommended since you can get 25% of the mains, which is really good bang for your buck 🖒🖒

Alsatian tarte flambé [$16++] A 20-30 min waiting time is required for this baked flatbread topped with sour cream, sliced onions, bacon bits, thyme, caramelised apples and mozzarella cheese. Nevertheless the wait was worthwhile with the thin crusted flatbread bearing an ideal cracker-like crispness. Texture was on point but unfortunately not so for the flavours. The sour cream was hardly detectable and the mozzarella cheese was a thin layer that could have been more distinct. The bulk of flavours are derived from the smoky bacon, crunchy caramelised (or should I say cinnamon-lised) apples with the caramelised onions bearing a mere presence too. IMO the apples didn't quite complement the savoury dish and I would have prefer if it was softer with more caramelised flavour. Perhaps this is more suited to those with a lighter palate as it wasn't flavourful enough for me 😥 . . . #burpple

Mushroom risotto [$23++] Only available on the dinner menu (4pm onwards), assorted wild mushrooms, porcini are served along with a bed of risotto cooked to a creamy, grainy consistency. Apparently the truffle flavour seemed to be more distinct here as compared to the mac & cheese, flavourful and aromatic. The mushrooms were chewy, juicy and lended a pleasant earthy note to the risotto that was creamy, thick while retaining a grainy mouthfeel. Topped with Parma ham chips that added a pleasant crisp factor and a tinge of savoury saltiness, the only gripe would be the steep pricetag that came along. But much thanks to @burpple for the giveaway, I managed to enjoy my meal here without any worries to the damage in my pocket ☺️. . . . #burpple

Truffle mac & cheese [$19++] Only available for the dinner menu (4pm onwards), this dish comprises of macaroni baked in creamy béchamel sauce and four cheeses with truffle butter, topped with an essential baked cheese surface layer. With an approximate waiting time of 20-30 minute, the top layer of cheese was baked to perfection with golden brown exterior that was thick, gooey and crusty at the edges. A pity the elasticity wasn't that on point though, with the cheese being a little dry and as a result, not so flexible 😅. Truffle flavour and aroma was distinct but I would personally prefer it to be stronger. The macaroni are bathed in a creamy bechamel sauce that's flavourful with a subtle truffle aroma. Pasta was al dente but some parts (especially the bottom) were a tad too dry and undercooked. Overall, it's a dish that's flavourful and enjoyable (especially if you are a fan of cheese) but highly recommended for sharing. Would also prefer if there were some ingredients e.g. Mushrooms, bacon or ham to go along too instead of just plainly macaroni & cheese. . . . #burpple

Thai Boat Noodles ($18). This bowl of boat noodles had a thick and rich broth. Was told that it was painstakingly slow-boiled for hours, using more than 15 types of herbs. It was indeed really flavorful. The spice may be too mild for some, but you've the option to request for it to be extra spicy. 🔸 This is taken during a tasting.

Prawn Cakes ($15, comes in 4s). I like their prawn cakes, it was thick and juicy, and fillings felt genuine. Was told that they were made of tiger prawns, and Cha Thai is good for theie tiger prawns dishes. Mop this up with a bit of the Thai sweet plum sauce which @wishuponatart was pictured holding it here. It was a great treat. Taken during a tasting.

Signature Cha Thai Toast (SGD $8) @ Cha Thai. . A platter of golden brown toast and charcoal toast, alongside a Thai milk tea dip and a pandan dip. . The toast is lovely and crisp, though I don't detect much difference between the regular version and the charcoal version. . But the luscious, creamy dipping sauces are delicious; the pandan / screwpine leaf dip is floral earthy sweet, while the Thai milk tea is nicely balanced, just like their beverage. .
