Newly opened in Tampines mall, Makanista serves up local delights with unique takes on them. Take the ubiquitous chicken rice for example; spice lovers will love their mala chicken (not so much 麻 , more 口水鸡). A crunchy mix of chillies, garlic, black vinegar and house-made sweet sauce that’s sure to get appetites going. Of course, traditionalists can also get the usual steamed Hainanese/roasted chicken rice (loved their chilli sauce, reminds me of Boon Tong Kee!).

Makanista is a modern, comfortable space and they’re currently applying for Halal certification, making it a popular spot for the residents and office workers around the area. Deffo a good option for a casual lunch in the Tampines area.

Meet the Beef Tongue Sammy. Launched yesterday at Le Bon Funk, I am pretty sure it’s been blowing minds non-stop since. Because it did exactly that to us tonight.
I swear we nearly collapsed in ecstasy over the insane deliciousness of that pile of quiveringly soft beef tongue. Having been injected every couple of hours with brine, the flavour and tenderness of it is to-die-for. A generous dollop of gribiche (hard boiled egg dressing) and housemade brioche (great work @tanzybra) complete this fantastic ensemble. A must-must-must order.

The wood-fire oven and mesquite wood imparts a seductive chimney smokiness to the chewy-skinned and fleshy duck, and the caviar bodaciously adds a luxuriously salty umami to the proceedings. Elsewhere, the steamed crepes paired with sugar crystals (as recommended) is a dead ringer for prata from the days of yore. 4.3/5

After hearing and reading so many positive reviews on the Bisibele Bhath ($5) and Masala Dosa ($6), I definitely have to order these two items on my first visit. With restaurants in Bengaluru, Udupi, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, the brand has a long history with its roots starting in 1920 before being renamed to the current MTR (Mavalli Tiffin Rooms) in 1951. Between the two vegetarian dishes that were ordered, both equally shined on its own rights. With an awesome flavour profile of spicy and tangy, the Bisibele Bhath is a rice dish made of lentils, vegetables, nutmeg, cashews, curry leaves and tamarind pulp, served with raitha and a dollop of ghee (a kind of clarified butter). It will be hard to choose a favourite but the Masala Dosa tipped the scale slightly for me. The Indian pancake that’s made from rice batter and black lentils is stuffed with a spice mix of potatoes that has been laced with ghee. The accompanying chutney dipping sauces were just magnificent and goes so well together with the dosa which got me wanting more from each bite.

New item on the menu and new hot fave here. Super juicy and chunky chicken thigh cubes with spot on seasoning and heat (it's not as spicy as they made it sound). Loved the char-grilled flavour coming through. Absolutely lip-smacking!

Pratas here are freshly made on the spot, unlike some of the prata places I’ve been (Thohirah I’m looking at you). The pratas are super crispy & fluffy, and it comes with curry and sambal chilli. Seriously, i wouldn’t mind traveling down all the way to the west just to eat this.

What was once my go-to drink in a bar is translated into something otherworldly beautiful and sublimely refreshing by Wild Rocket’s Owner-chef Willin Low.
His “Lychee Martini” takes on the form of a juicy ball of lychee sorbet draped in a slinky elderflower jelly. Instead of a straightforward sweet fruit flavour, the sorbet surprises with the interference from ginger flower, butterfly pea flower and elderflower. Brilliantly done in my opinion and quite clearly from her rapturous reaction, my friend Abbey must feel the same.

Don’t be put off by its appearance; this inky and seemingly plain dish was the highlight of dinner for me! Each bite was filled with an indulgent richness - a harmonious amalgamation of textures from the outwardly soft and inwardly chewy rice grains to the thick and cheesey sauce that bound it all together. Even a layperson (such as I) can tell that this risotto was cooked the painstakingly slow way, to create this amazing infusion of flavors!

Additionally, I love the cosy environment here; servers engage in light banter and ensure everything is beyond satisfactory. If you need a nice night out, this is THE place to be!

🦉#uniqueeat "Sweet delight Appam"@ Madras New Woodland 🌼
*****
One of a few places that serves this type of Appam fresh in SG. Appam, is a hot pancake made with fermented rice & coconut milk. The Appam set $5 comes with orange jaggery sugar & coconut milk. Word has it that orange jaggery sugar is only available in SG. Sprinkle the jaggery sugar and dip the pancake into coconut milk to enjoy this local delight.😺
.
Appam tastes slightly creamy & sweet. Not so many snacks that you can control how sweet you like while you eat! 🤘🤗 Reserve this for our chai tea party next time! ☕️👌

So moreish we ordered this twice! Deep-fried potatoes dusted with chutney powder aka gun powder cos it's supposedly spicy hot (but it's not really). The accompanying herby aioli-like dip just sealed the deal.

Siew Mai is one of the dim sum classics and a must-order item for me. I kind of judge how good a dim sum restaurant is by the standard of their siew mai. 😆
