Crispy Skin Braised Duck Burger - Chef Collaboration between Kush and Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Chap The burger consist of two rice patties that were toasted till just right to ensure the freshness of the rice, which easily came off at the slightest of cuts but was nonetheless chewy. In between was a braised duck thigh that was quite hard to cut into, but still tasted great, even better when had with the sweet, sour, mildly spicy and crunchy Nyonya-style achar!

Crispy Duck Burger 10nett (Kush) Before I tried this, I thought to myself, isn't it just sandwiching hawker centre braised duck in a burger. Isn't the achar's sour and spiciness going to mess with the savoury flavours of the duck. Isn't the spicy sauce that packs a real kick going to overshadow the duck's marinade? Well I wouldn't say I was completely wrong, but they managed to make every single element work with nuance and subtlety. Yes the spicy sauce packs a kick on its own, but with the amount of rice and duck, it worked just fine. Yes it was just duck sandwiched between burgers, but both the rice patties and duck were perfectly slightly chewy, while being flamed licked (the charcoal smokiness hits you immediately). The rice held it's shape while being sufficiently soft. The duck was sublimely well marinated and packed full of meaty flavours. Yes the achar was spicy and sour, but just enough to complement the duck and add a touch of sweetness and zest to the whole dish. Yes the burger looks small, but for only 10dollars this might just be the most well executed duck burger at this price point. While this dish certainly wasn't explosively good, it very well exceeded expectations and it's nondescript taste just grows on you with the subtle complexity and harmony of the individual elements. Do give this a try. This is without an iota of doubt the best duck burger I've ever had in my life, and I just pray the quality is maintained for the last 2 days. PS ironically, since I expected the burger to be at least crispy, the only part of the name that disappointed me was the lack of crispiness. However with the flame grilled smokiness, they're forgiven. That might just be the only gripe I had with this dish

Hokkien Mee, French Bouillabaisse Broth Style and Fresh Seafood19.9nett(Garcons) Hokkien mee itself was super slurpy and the broth was fabulous. However, instead of a normal French bouillabaisse, they used cinnamon and clove? pinot rather than brandy so the taste gets a little getting used to. Moreover, the crispy seabass was so well battered and flaky on the inside, might I even say meaty. Supremely sumptuous and hoped the seabass was larger lol. Finally, the justification for the 20dollar prize tag: monster river prawns. So fresh and bouncy, there was nothing to pick on for the meat, however the same cannot be said for the head. As it is a river prawn, according to the chef, the prawn head juices tend to be very bitter and thus do take great care NOT TO SPILL ANY OF THE JUICES INTO THE MEE. I unwittingly squeezed out all the juices and mixed it thoroughly with the noodles so that ended catastrophically. I couldn't even finish it due to how bitter it was.

Sweet And Sour Pork The sweet and sour pork ($26) was not bad, very crispy and not too sour, but a bit pricey for this portion. The other dishes are alright, nothing particularly outstanding though.

For Sik Wai Sin Fans Located along Geylang Road, Desmond's Creation is run by the younger of two sons from the now-defunct Sik Wai Sin. Back when they were cooking for Sik Wai Sin, Desmond specialised in stir-fried dishes while his brother, Steve, excelled in steamed dishes. Prices may be steep for the portion, and menu options are limited, but the flavours are consistently good. If you're in a big group, head to this air-conditioned eating house early, or be prepared to queue (especially on weekend nights). The signature Sweet and Sour Pork (from $18) is a tasty crowd favourite, but we found ourselves wishing they used fattier cuts of pork as well as a bigger portion for the price. Go for the Black Chicken Soup ($25) for a tummy-warming dish. To us, the most satisfying dish was the seemingly humble Beancurd with Prawns (from $19) laced with egg. This gravy-laden dish is just perfect spooned over rice! Avg Price: $20 per person Photo by Burppler Muriel A

Sweet And Sour Pork Sweet and Sour Pork ($18) An All-time favourite since childhood, this sweet and sour pork reminded me of my school days queuing up at the economic rice stall in school just to buy a bag of freshly deep fried crispy pork! These gems were certainly crispy and filled with just enough fat to give off a lightly crunchy and juicy bite. The sauce was great too, savoury and sweet without being overbearing so that they don't steal the limelight away from the pork! I never knew how popular @sekbaosin was but thankfully we were early and managed to get seats without waiting for too long! Doors open at 5.45pm and by the time we reached at 6.15pm, all the tables were already occupied.

Tofu Prawns ($18) Came here to try a friend鈥檚 favourite sweet and sour pork but found the cut they use a little too lean for my liking, so here鈥檚 my unexpected favourite dish instead! Simple but so well-executed 鈥 jiggly blocks of deep-fried tofu with chunky prawns doused in that slurp-worthy umami-packed zhup replete with silky beaten egg strands. Get this if you like to spoon sauces and gravies over your rice!

Curry Fish Head Ordered the biggest portion for 4 people, thinking that it will be just enough for each of us but there was still quite a lot of gravy left! We thought that they serve their food in a zi-char manner, however they don't! It's just curry fish head, and if you still want some side dishes, you've to order from the cai fan stall. They've dishes like what you can normally get at a cai fan stall: egg tofu, kang kong etc. For the price, we felt that the side dishes were overpriced as the portion was kind of small, but cost $4 per plate. It was quite disappointing. As of the curry fish head, it taste good! So the price is reasonable 馃憤馃徏

Fish Head Curry This large pot of curry fish head came bubbling hot! The Ang Goli fish was very fresh! The curry is rather thick, tangy, but I found it too sweet. $38 for this.

Chap Chye Peng // Hokkien Mee Dinner for two. Post-workout gains indeed. Been eating here for a huge part of my life so... These are the dishes I would recommend. Get the hum, soy sauce squid, salted egg prawns (quite rare!), spicy shrimps, stir fry pork, omelette. What I love is that the ingredients are fresh, the cooks are quick to replenish them. Service is fast, the team really works very well and they are able to handle such a long queue of customers! It is a little pricey, $6 for 4 dishes but I feel that it is worth the money given how fresh and high-quality the ingredients are. Do come during the early dinner period, or many items would be sold out by then!

On the higher side in price but this curry fish head still command a good crowd whether for lunch or dinner. Hot, spicy, sour, thick yet not lemak, its curry was good both on the rice and direct from the spoon. After that, the warming sensation in the tummy delivered such satisfaction. #burpple

One of the better orh luak around! Good orh luak is rare to find in Singapore. This stall makes a decent plate of orh luak. It is crispy and the oysters are plump (but I think I ate one stale one and so I changed my mind about wanting to order a takeout for my Teochew parents for snack). The uncle fries this fast so there is not much waiting. Prices $4,5,8. Opens at 1 pm梅. Not sure about closing time.

The Most Elusive Orh Luak In Singapore As it opens at a very odd timing (open everyday except for Tuesdays from 3-6, but they usually sell out by 5.30), I've had countless times where I've missed out on eating this wonderful orh luak (fried oyster). But today I have finally caught a taste of it! Still wonderfully crispy and bursting with savory flavor, the 6 fat, juicy oysters they give for a $5 plate make every bite of this dish an absolute joy. Their chili is spot on, being sour enough to cut through the grease without being harsh on the palette, and a mild spicy kick that haunts you. Even better is that while almost every other orh luak seems to be plopped atop a plate that's so flooded with oil it could very well be a Saudi oilfield, Ah Chuan's orh luak goes easy on the grease. The easiest 10/10 for Ah Chuan and his magnificent oyster!

Finally tried the food at @dehesa.sg and I'm surprised why it's not as crowded as @esquinasg! Stuffed our faces with all the delicious plates. Loved this octopus with torced cured lardo on a bed of potatoes with pickles. The arroz negro is also amazing! Pls go. Maybe tomorrow. Or this weekend. Or sometime very soon! 馃摲 @gnorijul

Dehesa Octopus ($28). Out of the eight courses I had, this octopus was my favorite dish. Octopus tentacles were sliced and crowned with lardo, which was torched to bring out the flavour of the cured fat. 馃敻 The savoury succulent octopus was contrasted by the bed of finely chopped potatoes which were lifted by zest, so I really enjoy eating the lardo, octopus and potatoes all in a single mouth. I'm a fan of grilled octopus, and I find this to be one of the better ones around.

$24 Smoked mash, chorizo and soft cooked eggs 鈥 a classic Spanish tapas that you can't miss out at Dehesa. Be sure to get some crunch with that pork crackling, saltiness from the chorizo and creaminess from the egg to be enjoyed in a mouthful!
