Meatless Mondays? Nah fam, round here, we do MEATY Mondays. Meat, meat and MOAR MEAT. While the Arabs have their kebabs, we got our scintillating satays here in Singapore, and Joy Satay at the newly established @kedaikopisg does ‘em excellently.⠀

For $0.70 a stick, we got mutton, beef & chicken on a stick, and each prawn on a stick cost us two bucks. The mutton satay was plenty piquant with minimal offensive gaminess, and the spice marinade had fully & irreversibly bonded with the meat. Better yet, it was tender, joyously juicy, and didn’t require a tug of war to slide off the skewer. Ditto for the beef & chicken as well, and the satay sauce might just be the most stellar satay sauce in the history of satay sauces. THICC, nutty and loaded with the perfect balance of sweet & salty, Gimme More by Britney became my theme song while smashing dat sauce.⠀

The big boi bbq prawns were acceptably fresh, and had a delectable smoky finish thanks to the grill. Sure, it needed a generous sprinkling of salt, but all was well the minute I drowned it in that scintillating satay sauce. Joy Satay is a hot-tay, and you can take that to the bank.⠀

Thanks for having me, @esth3r_esth3r, @aricjayden & @kedaikopisg!⠀

@kedaikopisg is a fully halal coffeeshop, so of course they serve up mouthwatering Malay staples like nasi goreng. But Banana Grill doesn’t just do normal nasi goreng, oh hell naw. They fry up the best damn seafood nasi goreng, and then gingerly wrap it in a banana leaf. That’s right fellas, it’s a present, and it’s a positively palatable one at that.⠀

Fluffy, well separated grains of (basmati? I don’t remember fam) rice are well acquainted with a subtle yet scintillating sambal in a devilishly hot wok, and is buffed with the inclusion of well beaten eggs that morph into omelettes by the end of the cooking cycle. But of course, it wouldn’t be seafood nasi goreng without the seafood, and so a generous bevy of squid, shrimp & sliced fishcakes are incorporated into the marvellous mound of fried carby deliciousness. Oh, and watch out for the slices of chili, which are there are extra spice bombs.⠀

At $9.90 for this Banana Leaf Seafood Fried Rice that will feed two, this is dish is perfect for using as a gauge for your potential wife fellas. Hear ye young kings, for I preach unto thee from the Gospel of Future: if you present her with this piquant present & she receives it eager, she’s a keeper. If she throws a fit, she belongs to the streets.⠀

Thanks for hosting me, @esth3r_esth3r & @kedaikopisg!

You can (almost) never go wrong with the timeless classic combination of potato, meat, sauce & cheese, but Tenderbest does it remarkably well. These brilliant Bolognese fries comprise thin straight cut French fries getting absolutely drenched in a delicious deluge of bolognese sauce, liquid cheese, and mayonnaise for that extra calorie hit.⠀

The only real improvements that could be made here are to ditch the thin spuds for THICC crinkle cut fries that will absorb every last spot of sauce, and of course, MOAR SSSSAAAAUUUSSSE. They don’t call me the SAUS BAWS for no reason, y’know. I can’t tell if the meat in the bolognese is beef or chicken, but I do know that it’s one hundred percent halal, and it’s two hundred percent perfect. Tomato-y, salty, sweet, and majestically meaty, this sauce is simply scintillating.⠀

This may have been intended as a sharing dish, but these bolognese fries are so fabulous I’m enforcing severe social distancing measures on the whole lot of y’all.⠀

Thanks for (over)feeding us, @kedaikopisg & @aricjayden, and @esth3r_esth3r for letting me tag along!

Tenderbest falls under the purview of @tenderfreshsg, and Tenderfresh has been in operation since the late seventies. They’ve been consistently cooking up fantastic fried chicken as well as redolent roasted chicken since then. With more than forty years of experience in excellence, it was never in any doubt that our nine piece family set ($25.90) was gonna be sublime sumptuousness.⠀

Each colossal chicken cut was tender, juicy and chock full of fabulous flavours. It was supremely savoury, and the fat under the skin had been fully rendered out, leaving behind salty, crispy chicken skin that amplified the ambrosial awesomeness of this fried fowl.⠀

Forget the colonel, Tenderbest is the Commander in Chief of all things chicken related.

We tried the food at almost all the stall. And all is good. Amazing. The foodcourt name is literally ‘kedai kopi’ and all the stall is halal.

Hadn’t really been this enthusiastic about Tenderbest group’s concepts in the past, but my recent visits to Tenderbest Makcik Kitchen at [email protected] had me fairly impressed — and that’s how I found myself heading down to Kedai Kopi when they had announced the opening of the coffeeshop concept.

With many tenants located under one roof in this Muslim-friendly concept, we ended up ordering from a few stalls such as Mee Bagus (i.e. the Muslim-friendly alter ego of Gimee Face 爱面子 that has stalls in Hougang and Ang Mo Kio), Mr Teh Tarik Express and Joy Satay. This item came from the menu of 380 Nasi Lemak — a stall that is seen as a revival of Nasi Coco which was previously situated at NeWest, and is aligned with the same Muslim-friendly theme of the coffeeshop. While the other elements were actually pretty well-executed here, the main star or the show here seemed to have fell a bit short — the XXL Crispy Chicken Leg seem to have lost most of its juiciness from being pre-fried and displayed at the counter for an extended period of time; the batter being a tad limp, though retaining much of the crunch, but the flesh being rather tough and dry. Otherwise, the other elements are pretty commendable — the basmati rice came infused with an evidently aromatic coconut-y fragrance with the grains being pretty fluffy, and the sambal being a nice mix of sweet-savoury and carrying a moderate punch of spiciness that most folks should find easy to handle. The Ikan Bilis also remained crunchy, while the sunny-side-up comes with somewhat of a runny egg yolk.

While this item from 380 Nasi Lemak does come with hits and misses and definitely has some room for improvement, Kedai Kopi is certainly a spot that remains as an appealing option to dine at if in the area for both Muslims and Non-Muslims. Of particular mention, we found the Seafood Laksa from Mee Bagus to be delicious — sufficiently “lemak” with an evident hint of flavours from the rempah spices, and coming with hum, fish cake, and prawns. Crowds seem to be a little crazy given the press coverage on this place lately though — you have been warned!
