Sanbo Rice (inclusive in $100++ omakase, or available for ala carte at $30++). My favourite course in the omakase dinner. As @jiaknonstop demonstrated to us, you should mix the uni, negitoro (chopped fatty tuna) and ikura with the rice, then wrap it with the seaweed and eat it like a handroll. 🔸 The creaminess of the uni and the clean tasting oil from the negitoro, together with bursts of savoury juices from the ikura was just perfect. And these are playfully interspersed with crunch tempura bits. So enjoyable!

Yoda Japanese Dining - Omakase (💵S$100) - Extremely worth value for a 10 course meal considering the quality & execution of the dishes. 🏵 . Course No. 5: Two kinds of Tempura - Nattō 納豆 with seaweed & Tai 鯛 Seabream Snapper with Shiso シソ leaf that's paired well with Mentaiko Mayo. 🍤 . Course No. 9: Somen 素麺 with Chives - Looks plain but it's comforting & heartwarming but packed with flavour from the stock. It's the kind of dish I'd crave when I'm under the weather. Simple but good. 🍜 . Course No. 10: Japanese Musk Melon メロン - Half of it was original which was so Fragrant & Sweet. Another half was soaked in Whisky - Yamazaki I assume, it paired so well together. Pungent & Divine. Died & went to Melon Heaven. 🍈

If you've read my previous post on my experience at @yoda.fm's omakase, this is the post you're waiting for! As simple as it looks, the Japanese Musk Melon is possibly the sweetest & juiciest melon on this planet! What I love the most about ending the night with this was how the chef has sneakily drizzled half the melon with whisky, while leaving the other in its original state. When we were introduced to the dish, we were instructed to have the original piece first, before diving in for the whisky-drizzled piece. The after effect of that is a sweet, alcoholic but yet a light end to the entire 10 courses. If it weren't for @jiaknonstop's request, we wouldn't be able to try out the genius combination of whisky & melon 😌 • #burpple #yodajapanesedining #japaneseomakase #aroundwithamd

I don't usually post multiple photos, but gosh, this omakase that I had definitely deserves it! With the help of @jiaknonstop's planning, we were able to try out @yoda.fm's $100++ omakase which requires at least 3 days notice! However, if you'd like more interesting items (like ours), we suggest you book them a month in advance! So this lovely cover is one of my personal favs from the evening - Sambo Rice, which comes with Japanese Rice, topped with Negitoro, Uni & Ikura! So to eat this dish, you'd have to mix the ingredients all together before spreading it out on the seaweed & rolling it up to eat it. It was so good, I was close to licking the entire bowl after I was done, but I didn't. In order of sequence, here's what our $100++ got us: * Oyster with Tabasco & Squid & lady's finger * Poached egg, Ikura, taco & wasabi * Otoro, Chutoro, Hamachi & Botan Ebi * Fried Botan Ebi * Tempura costed Natto & Sea Bream with Shiso * Crabclaw, foie gras, daikon & Lamb chop in shiso sauce, potato salad, edamame * Sambo Rice - Negitoro, Ikura, Uni * Stir fried somen * Japanese Musk Melon + with whisky The last item would require a post on its own, cause as simple as it is, it is pure genius.

Last chance to grab this double cheese burger today. The boys at grit will be closing and transiting to brick and mortar soon. Two lovely beef patties coated with gooey cheese and smothered with sautéed onions. Grab it while you still can!

hidden hawker hamburger hunt. this is a hidden gem among the prawn mee, wanton mee and roast meat stalls of pei kio market. $9.90 gets you a double cheeseburger with two patties cooked to medium, blanketed in processed cheese and topped with caramelized onions. the vegetables at the side are a mere memory as the beef takes centrestage; roughly chopped for a good bite and pleasantly juicy. though not as much char and burnt bits as i would like, it's hard to fault the price tag. oh, and it comes with a side of cheese fries 😬

Fell Flat Escargot Aglio Olio ($10.00 nett) I like this concept - escargots are totally my thing. But this didn't feel like Aglio Olio. Lovely generous portions of sliced garlic, but I expected the usual olive oil & just that alone as the sauce. For some reason, the sauce was brown & lightly savoury... Maybe the escargot "sweat"ed this brown sauce out? I don't know. Also would've liked the pasta to be more al dente, but this is my own preference. I guess it's a case of mismatched expectations.. 😔

A Little Dry I was excited for the Double Cheeseburger ($9.90 nett) after seeing a picture on Instagram. But the patties turned out to be quite dry. Yep, both of them. Onions were a little too charred, too. I am quite fussy about my burgers though, don't know if I'm being too harsh. Served with a side of fries (all burgers are); for some reason, this came with shoestring fries with a yellow sauce on top. Felt cheesy but not in a overpowering/strong way. I liked it, but I wish I knew what it was. I'm gonna guess it's cheese. I really wanted to love this experience... But sadly, it fell short.

Red Garoupa Fish Porridge Choice of garoupa, mackerel(batang) or pomfret with different pricing starting from $5.50 to $15. With the flavoursome broth and chunky fresh fish, it's no wonder how this stall can charge double the usual price of fish soup and still have a long queue. Be prepared to queue for a while, even if the line is deceivingly short! Been wanting to come back since a few years back but their hours are short.

Batang Fish Soup This has been my family's go to fish soup stall for a few years now. Their fish soup is so yummy... fish slices are fresh and thick with generous portions too, while the soup is so good that not finishing the whole bowl is a crime!

Fresh, Clean & Yummy We tried all the three fishes on offer: Red Grouper ($8), Pomfret ($9) and Mackerel ($5.50). While all three bowls were equally delicious, my personal preference was still the Mackerel bowl. It's value-for-money and it's the only fish with that nice, firm texture that I associate with fish slice soup!

Egg & Cheese Portobello Mushroom with Grilled Bacon ($15.90) Typically I wouldn't expect much beyond some puffs and pastries at a library cafe. But this cafe at the National Library is a surprising find. We tried a few of the items using the entertainer app (yasss, 1-for-1 main dishes!), and this was my clear fav. For first-timers, gentle warning, there is a delicious oozing egg hidden between the cheese layer and tender portobello. It was so runny, we had to use the bread to soak up all the escaping yolk after slicing open the portobello. Overall the food is decent, and with a spacious layout at a convenient location near town, it's a great place for weekend chilling sessions.

Za'atar Pita, Homemade Hummus One of my favourite places to stop by for a delicious snack. This places supplies the best pita in the country to some of the best restaurants, so you know you're in for a treat! My favorites are the wholemeal and za'atar pitas, served warm alongside their superbly creamy hummus. Say yes when he asks if you take spicy, and you'll be rewarded with a lovely dusting of chili powder. Loaded with whole chickpeas and hard boiled eggs, this was divine. I also loved the really simple, no frills environment, just sitting along the walkway at Bali Lane and snacking on these beauties 👌🏻

Pita (from $1) & Homemade Hummus (from $5 for 100g) I’ve walked past this section several times but sadly never once noticed this bakery. 💔 Apparently, it’s been here for three years(!!) and they bake some of the most uhmayzing pita bread on the island daily and supply various hotels and restaurants including Common Man Coffee Roasters and Fat Prince. You can purchase fresh pita from their in-house assortment — white ($1), wholemeal ($1.50), sesame seeds, garlic, za’atar ❤️❤️, Spicy New Orleans/cajun ($2.20 for any with toppings) — along with various dips to enjoy on the spot or to take home (they’re on Deliveroo too!). Oh, and they don’t use canned chickpeas for their hummus; they soak the chickpeas overnight to soften before cooking instead. So next time you’re planning a mezze party or craving for good pita and spreads, you know where to go!

For Affordable Zi Char in the Heartlands Located in Boon Lay, this food centre sees an unending stream of regulars on weeknights. The stall front is covered with many accolades won over the years — a testament to how good their dishes are. Follow our Burpple community's recommendation and get the Fried Egg with Oysters ($10). Unlike the starchy oyster eggs we're used to, the version here is an omelette topped with a generous portion of plump oysters. Burppler Hwans Lim highly recommends coming with a group of four or more to share the Fish Steamboat (market price). It comes ladened with plenty of fresh fish slices, yam cubes and tomatoes. Also worth sharing are the XL-sized Homemade Prawn Roll (Hei Zho)($8) — unlike other places where the hei zho comes in bite-sized pieces, here they do a lemon-sized version that requires more than a bite to finish. Avg Price: $20 per person Photo by Burppler Jeremy Tan

Oyster omelettle: "WOW" when this dish arrived. The egg is fried till crispy and soft, the oysters are not only fresh it's also fat and juicy although it doesn't come with any sauce to go along but it's totally delicious and worth the price for just $10 |9.5/10 Hotplate seafood: the looks isn't appealing but it's not bad, taste like spicy sweet and sour sauce and the texture of the seafood are cook just right (Prawns, Squid, Fish) 7/10 Stir fry baby kailan: this is bad cause it doesn't have any wok hei and it's quite tasteless. Three layer pork with yam: Yam is soft and the pork belly are quite springy but i feel that the five spice power is too overpowering and i doesn't feel like having a 2nd piece anymore. ------------------------------------------- Will be back again to try the other dishes, the zi char stall here is quite cheap and reasonable. #instafood #insta_food #food #sgfood #sgfoods #foods #yummy #hungry #foodism #foodgram #foodgasm #foodfie #foodspam #foodporn #sgfoodporn #sgfoodstagram #foodstagram #foodspotting #sgfoodspotting #foodshare #sgfoodshare #foodpics #sgfoodpics #foodie #foodlover #8dayseat #burpple #zichar #dinner

Duck confit maze-men [$16] An interesting fusion of french and Japanese cuisine, with the incorporation of duck confit in a maze soba(or should I say maze ramen). The only dry version offered here, this maze-men comprises of shredded duck confit, charred king oyster mushrooms, purple cabbage, carrots, onsen tamago in a citrus-soy dressing. "Toss and mix everything before eating" - as adviced by the staff. Unfortunately this dish fell short of my expectations, with the noodles served lukewarm and the citrus-soy dressing barely contributing to the flavours. It was tantamount to having a dry noodles that's tossed in light soy sauce, lightly salted and pretty bland- not for those who prefer stronger flavours (like me). The only 2 elements I enjoyed was the tender, meaty and succulent duck confit as well as the well seasoned king oyster mushrooms that were chewy and flavourful. Thank god the staff offered me a chilli paste that helped to spice up the flavours of the maze ramen. Hopefully the other soup based ramen would fare better? 🤔 . . . . #burpple

Duck Confit Ramen? French meets Japanese. It was served dry ramen style, with shredded duck confit, king oyster mushroom, purple cabbage, carrot, spring onion, topped with onsen egg. After you toss it, the noodles would be coated with this unique citrusy-soy dressing, which was both refreshing and uplifting. And yes, not that ordinary and needed getting used to. http://danielfooddiary.com/2017/05/15/ramenatelier/

Mazemen De Conard One of the newly-launched items at Ramen Atelier; now in its new space just a few units away from where it was during the pop-up period within the same building. Don't come here expecting this to be a Kajiken — it simply isn't the Nagoya-style Mazemen especially since Ramen Atelier is known for its Japanese ramen that comes with a touch of French in terms of the cooking techniques and flavours employed in what they have to offer. The noodles were springy; despite its plain looks, one is most likely to find themselves finishing the springy noodles pretty easily especially since there is a lingering Citrus Soy aroma from the dressing that it is laced in — the light fragrance simply encourages one to go on and on in attempts to get an logical inference on the flavours that comes from every strand. The shredded pulled duck was briny, yet not overly salty whilst being tender and in rather chunky pieces — went well to provide a stronger and more impactful flavour to the noodles, while the onsen tamago provides that silkier touch it always does when one mixes the egg into the bowl of noodles. Grilled Oyster Mushrooms helped to give a juicy bite; almost akin to the bamboo shoots that other ramen places serve. Quite a good (and differently done) bowl that works great for those who prefer dry ramen.

Ramen Rogue Had to get one of these for it was really an eye-opener on my previous trip there — they had since improved on the recipe and made it better than what I remembered it to be! Taking a sip of broth from the bowl without mixing everything up, it's flavours are significantly tangy from the sweetness of the tomato tare — some might find it similar to those base of tomato-based pasta from coffeeshop western stalls but it definitely did feel a lot more refined in comparison. Mixing the generous portion of Special Togarashi Chili into the bowl of ramen, it antes up the flavours of the entire bowl quite a bit — quite a kick in terms of spiciness and a hint of umami flavour that one would get from the dried chili at Dim Sum places; it might sound like a weird combination at first but it packs a serious punch! Cha Shu was as tender as I remembered, while almost free from any porky stench but the Ajitsuke Tamago was also pretty well-executed with a flowy, molten yolk hidden in between. A big improvement overall; if it was good the previous visit, this was definitely even better!

Hanoi Bun Cha A delicious hidden gem that I finally got down to visiting after @rinns recommendation, Uncle Ho Tuckshop located inside a commercial building offers some kickass Vietnamese noodles (psst maybe even one of the best in Singapore imho). Having their signature and the very dish made famous when Anthony Bourdain gave Barack Obama a crash course on Vietnamese cuisine in Hanoi, their Buncha Lunch Value Set Meal which includes a drink ($14.90) was simply delightful and amazingly appetising. Served with a sweet tangy broth with a mixture of grilled pork belly and grilled meatball, the Buncha is to be eaten like a Vietnamese Soba, adding condiments in to enhance the flavours and dipping the rice vermicelli into the soup. And of course in true Vietnamese style, a side of fresh greens and herbs to introduce different textures and taste to the bowl. Though a tad astringent with its base flavour being pickled vegetables, the sourish elements really supplement and amp up the broth. Won’t recommend drinking it as a soup but man it is super shiok - a balanced and harmonious blend. But the highlight for me was certainly the thin slices of pork that reminded me of bacon at first bite and the well-seasoned grilled meatballs. Slurps. Their iced lemongrass-pandan was two thumbs-up, too.
