Lengua Taco Cow’s Tongue Taco. $7.00 for one taco (not two unfortunately). Great combination of textures: tender meat, crunchy onions, creamy guacamole, fragrant cilantro and that hit from their spicy sauce.

Pescados ($12) And California ($13.50) Burrito Featuring the lovely pescados (fish) burrito and California burrito! I particularly enjoyed the fish that was tender and coated in a crispy batter. The California burrito had steak, fries, sour cream, and cheese, but personally, I thought that the fries could have been more crisp. (I’d recommend the Carne Asada fries instead) Also, I’m not very sure why, but the skin of our burritos this time was softer than usual, which made me quite disappointed. Still, a really filling meal! Also: thanks to the burpple app, I got 50% off my second burrito too!! :)

Chicken Burrito with Guac ($14) This was an unexpectedly heavy burrito, but I'm glad that the quantity was paired with quality. I was especially surprised by the rice- my usual gripe about it is that it tends to be quite flavourless but my concern was for naught here. The rice was pleasantly firm to the bite and was nicely flavoured on its own. Although I'm usually fonder of the tortilla wrap in the burrito, this is one rare instance that I think I might just be as satisfied with a burrito bowl (which comes with only rice). The combination of all the ingredients was very tasty and I actually didn't need the hot sauce at all! This burrito wasn't quite the same as the ones I've had in US, and I'm not even mad about it. This was I felt a somewhat lighter version because it didn't send me to a usual food coma from the typical greasy, hearty Mexican fare. But don't get me wrong, this was by no means any less satisfying. I hope to return for their quesadillas soon!

Grilled Seasonal Item I expected the Grilled Seasonal Item portion of the omakase to be of the fish variety, and was pleasantly surprised by the large scallop in a half shell presented before us. Sitting in a richly unami miso uni sauce, I was happy they served the scallop with its roe, a delicious part of the shellfish that’s all too often left out or even viewed as undesirable. Unfortunately the scallop itself was slightly overcooked. Till 30th April, enjoy 1-for-1 Chef’s Table 8 course set ($78++, 6pm - 11pm) and complimentary 250ml cold sake(while stocks last).

Ondeh ondeh hotcake [$15] After the descent of Earl grey charcoal hotcake, ondeh ondeh hotcake is back on the menu once again! ✨ Pandan flavoured hotcake embedded with salted coconut ricotta creme, topped with Pandan coconut gelato, sprinkled with toasted coconut flakes and served with a side of gula melaka sauce. A deconstructed and revamped version of the Peranakan kueh that we are all familiar with, the hotcake was soft, fluffy with a slightly crisp surface layer that carries off a lingering aromatic pandan essence and fragrance. The texture was done to an ideal perfection- soft, light and sufficiently moist 💖. Unfortunately the salted ricotta creme got outshone by the distinct Pandan essence, harbouring a negligible effect to the overall flavour unless you were to consume it in silo. The colour of the Pandan coconut gelato got me turned off initially with an artificial shade of neon green but fortunately the taste did not disappoint, a pleasant sweetness of coconut that was also refreshing though the texture could have been better if it was smoother and less icy. The toasted coconut flakes added a crisp, fibrous mouthfeel to the hotcake, a complimentary and perfect pairing to the hotcake, where the resemblance to ondeh ondeh kicks in. Unfortunately, this would not be available anymore, with the cease of operations at @artistrycafesg 👋🏻 . . . #burpple #smitteneats #smittenchoice

Peanut butter & Jelly French Toast [$15] . And so... today marks the end of @artistrycafesg ‘s service and operations 👋🏻😭. Apart from the brunch, one thing I would miss most is this French Toast that surprisingly far exceeded my expectations, officially one of the best I have ever had (apart from @sarabethsofficial that I tried in Taiwan). Had initially wanted to try it last weekend, but it was already sold out by 12pm😭. Came back on a Friday afternoon (and reserved this just in case) which certainly did not disappoint, to which both my dining and I enjoyed it truly, polishing it off in no time, although she doesn’t even have a sweet tooth in the first place, unlike me. The brioche toast soaked in spiced custard was soft, fluffy with a pillowy texture that is filled with peanut butter and raspberry jam. A nutty, roasted flavour and aroma coupled with a subtle tartness from the fruity jam, it was clearly a winning combination that surprisingly didn’t turn out to be overwhelming or saccharine as expected! 💖 Served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream that was smooth, creamy with a fragrant milky flavour, the addition of the mixed berry coulis provided a tinge of acidity; a good counter balance to the other sweeter elements. Wouldn’t mind giving this a 2nd try... but unfortunately its extinction prohibited me from doing so 😭 . . . . #burpple #smitteneats #smittenchoice

Butcher’s Daughter [$14] Sous vide seared beef, eggs, frites. This is really value for money! Big plus point is that this fool proof gentle cooking process resulted in the meat being evenly cooked from edge to edge. Also, with this cooking method, the beef‘s fat and connective tissue slowly break down in a controlled temperature water bath (the sous vide) before it soaks up some flavorful smoke on the grill!

Mediterranean Breakfast [$15] In short for BFF, this place is quite an unpretentious hidden gem. Though they don’t have the most extensive menu, you’ll find highly value for money comforting asian fusion plates. Oh, they are behind the same guys from Penny University. In this plate, you’ll find hummus, falafel, spinach, eggs, halloumi cheese, smoked aubergines, avocados, cous cous. So many components in one plate! The noteworthy items were definitely the scrambled eggs, hummus and falafel. The hummus was tasty and creamy, with the right smooth consistency. Can easily wipe it clean if the cous cous were swapped out for pita! Falafels felt a little clumsy, with multiple visible full sized chickpeas in them. Saving grace was that the seasoning and flavor was spot on! Also, what’s not to love about deep fried crispy fritters! 😋

Butcher's Daughter Saw this dish many times so had to try it. It's brunch with a sousvide steak. Enough reason for me to test it out. Didn't like the scrambled eggs as much as it's watery. Overall the dish is value for money. Note the lowest doneness you can order here is medium rare. They do not accept credit card here, so be prepared to pay via nets or cash.

Hokkien Mee $16 before taxes The meaty prawns are the highlight of this dish. There’s also five lala, and they are quite fresh. I find the noodles a little tad salty though

Signature Hokkien Mee 16++ Quite wet which is the version I prefer but unfortunately there isn't as much wok hei as I expected. To be very truthful, just based on the noodles alone I've tasted better in hawker centres. I believe it's probably the last splash of water before simmering the noodles that really took away from the concentration of prawn broth as well as a wok hei. Not very worth it if you're paying for a kickass bowl of hokkien mee, but if you're paying for the prawns it's definitely worth it. Well charred in a broiler those 3 beauties had so much flavour in the head and it was so meaty. Could smell the prawns even while they were in the kitchen. Btw their sambal is much more on the sour side than the sweet which makes sense to me cos lime works well with hokkien mee.

Unagi Kabayaki Benedict Injecting Asian flavours into familiar Western cafe staples, Xiao Ya Tou’s signature Unagi Kabayaki Benedict ($16) is the perfect example of their unabashedly quirky offerings. Sandwiched between fried sweet mantou buns, the dish features a wobbly low temp. egg drenched in creamy yuzukoshô hollandaise with a layer of mushroom duxelles that is completed with a slab of teriyaki-glazed unagi and a side of prawn mayo salad. Though an unconventional combination, I enjoyed the textures as well as the balance of umami and Japanese-esque flavours used. Something one would order if they seek anindulgent brunch with eccentric asian twist.

Many should know it is the last day of operation for @thebetterfield today! We went back for the last time yesterday to bid farewell and tried their special Omakase menu ($80 for 4 courses). 😰 Featuring the main course - A5 Wagyu Beef as part of the Omakase! The marbling of the beef was intensive and the tender meat simply gives you the melt-in-your-mouth texture 🤩 Friendship was forged and bonded at The Betterfield ever since Bras Besar times. 有不舍的感觉! Till then, wishing you all da best @chef_sig!

Before the shutter closes on 17 March, this is my final swan song visit to The Betterfield. Back in 2014 when it first opened in a humble shop along Waterloo Street till now in its expanded premises at High Street, the food has been consistently good under the hands of Chef Shaun. I vividly remember that after my maiden visit, I was truly impressed with their Duck Confit ($22), Pulled Duck Burger ($20) and Black Angus Ribeye ($21 200g, $38, 400g). Each subsequent visit was filled with excitement and the launch of new dishes such as Roasted Duck Fat Potatoes ($16) and Furikake Pasta ($21) made ordering even harder as you are spoilt for choice. On this very night, all of the classics and favorites were layout on a table. • Regrettably, all good things must come to an end as we await the new concept in the near future. Au revoir and good bye for now as The Betterfield has left the building. _____________ The Betterfield Address: 100, High Street, The Treasury, Unit 01-03, Singapore 179434

Drinks were good Have passed by @pennyuniversity countless times & finally found the time to try them out! Overall feel of the place is good, but only had drinks & cake so difficult to say. 🍳 Rating: 7.5/10 🍳 Will i return/recommend: Yes/Yes 🍳 Pros: Wonderful service, friendly & helpful. Dark & cosy interior. Free WIFI. Drinks were good! Matcha latte had strong bitter taste which i liked 👍Lemon cake tasted good, but texture a bit stale. 🍳 Cons: Closes at 7pm, kitchen closes at 4pm (Sun). Drinks were a bit pricier than normal (compared to similar cafes) - for a tiny glass filled with large ice cubes. 🍳 Price: S$17.50 - iced matcha latte & peppermint choc, lemon pound cake

Eggs Benedict Its always hard to resist Eggs Benny when its on the menu, especially when it has a ✅ by the side! The food took a little long; its expected since the cafe was quite busy. My eggs benny looked a little sad when it was 1st served on the table (especially after a difficult and breathtaking hot yoga). Looked pretty empty 😕 with only a few strands of salad with vinaigrette by the side Test 1: Sliced through the 1st poach egg 🙁 OVER DONE, not runny enough 😩 Luckily, the brioche toast was a saver for my breakie: crispy at the side, soft in the middle. The whole combination (hollandaise sauce, smoked salmon, egg & toast) was pretty pleasant in the mouth. Test 2: Sliced through the 2nd poach egg 😃 this is RIGHT! 😋 🤔Consistency and Plating needs improvement 💸: $15, pretty standard café prices Verdict: 🙂 i was not too impressed with my entire branch experience. The serving was on the small side and looked little unsatisfying which made me feel a little sad even before i ate it. Im glad my eggs benny tasted pretty good. The fact that it has pretty good kopi, there's a chance that i'll be back to give it another try
