Step into Tang Lung and you'll be surrounded by picturesque wallpapers and elegant Chinese decor, but of course, the menu of over 60 dishes from various regions is the main highlight.

For Kiseki Souffle Pancakes
The renowned Kiseki souffle pancakes from Japan has arrived in Orchard Road! While the velvety Millenial Strawberry ($20.80) is a hot favourite, Burppler Raine Liu prefers the Matcha ($19.80) as "the bitterness pairs off well with the slight sweetness of the pancakes." Want something savoury? Burppler Siming T recommends the Eggs Benedict ($22.80). "The poached eggs were done on point, with the whites solidified and the yolk runny, before the Hollandaise sauce was drizzled over them."

Miznon, the contemporary casual eatery by famed Israeli chef Eyal Shani, boasts 10 outlets across cities such as Vienna, New York, Paris, and Melbourne. Their first Asia branch features signatures such as Baby Cauliflower and even 11 original iterations of pita! Burppler Cassie Ong says the Ratatouille pita ($17) was everyone's favourite. "The meatless yet comforting pita is made of simmered roasted vegetables, crowned with tahini and green chilli dressing."

Obvious choices are the Prawn Noodle Soup ($21) and Prawn Noodle Dry ($21) featuring flamed grilled king prawns and a signature prawn broth. As for Burppler Xing Wei Chua, he went for the Ebi Burger ($21) which "comes all crispy on the exterior and coated with a breaded golden-brown batter."

For Indonesian-Style Dry Noodles
Think Indonesian noodles and bakmi immediately comes to mind! Kulon is a new spot on Bali Lane serving up delicious bakmi, along with rice dishes like Nasi Lemak and even burgers. Go for the signature Bakmi Spesial, dry noodles served with braised sweet soy sauce chicken, Bakso beef balls and blanched bok choy. Burppler Xing Wei Chua says it's the first time he tried bakmi, "but this was something I would certainly not mind having again"!

For Authentic French Crepes
Love crepes? Look no further than French Fold - brought to you by the same people behind Merci Marcel - for outstanding sweet crepes and savoury galettes at a great price. Burppler Poon ❤️ had the No. 17 (Raspberry Crepe) with raspberry jam, fresh berries and basil ice cream from Bird of Paradise and "loved how chewy and doughy the texture was." As for Burpple Nobelle Liew, she ordered the No. 5 (Chorizo Galette) with meaty comte cheese and crisp savoury chorizo, and it was "utter and absolute yuuuuumz."

For Affordable Chirashi
This tiny restaurant in Simpang Bedok first rose into fame for their value-for-money chirashi bowls ($21.80). For that price, you get yellow tail, salmon, salmon belly, scallop, prawn and ikura, among others. Burppler Jayson Yeo loves how "each sashimi was sliced so thick it’s no surprised that there were positively more fish than rice." The Spicy Bara Don ($18.80) and Aburi Salmon Cheese Mentai Don ($15.80) are other hot favourites. Only 10 seats are available, so reserve ahead!
