Iced Thai Tea…literally!

Now what could be better than a cup of Thai Milk Tea? Only a cup of Thai Milk Tea soft-serve! Available at Soi55’s Ang Mo Kio outlet, this icy treat serves as a coolant, necessary for the hotter days of the weather which has been mercilessly polarised lately. 😣

This was creamier than it was icy, but judging from the texture and the taste, I have a hunch that little was altered from their original recipe of the Thai Milk Tea before they converted it to this glorious spiralling steeple. Not that it was a turn-off at all, but it was definitely a little predictable in that sense. Some jellies take cover beneath the soft-serve, which was a pleasant surprise. It also added some bite to an otherwise regular ice-cream treat.😗

Lastly, you can choose to ornament your cup of soft-serve with various toppings – between sago jelly, grass jelly, chocolate sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles and coconut chips. They may not seem like much, but they will make it more picture-perfect to help add life to your Instagram accounts. 😎

This is available in two sizes – small ($3) and large ($4) – and available in three flavours – Thai Milk Tea, Coconut and Hybrid. With really affordable prices and a prime location at 51 @ AMK (a 5-minute walk from the Ang Mo Kio Bus Interchange), you should definitely consider making plans to visit Soi55 sometime! 😛 (7.1/10)

Jean Georges' signature Truffle Fontina pizza at - this pizza crust, to me, is perhaps the perfect crust.

Soft and fluffy, with crispy charred bits, and extremely thin; you could eat more of the pizza without being filled up by the crust. The best part about this is that I taste both the truffle and the cheese without being overwhelmed by the fumes of truffle oil from the next table or mine. I abhor the stench of truffle oil but I had to give this a go, given that it's a signature dish. I am glad it did not disappoint. I would definitely order this again in a heartbeat. #burpple #dempseycookhouseandbar

Three Cheese Risotto

Wasn't intending to have lunch here initially but I reckon I should return to try their lunch out. Went with this item, which is probably a safe bet for those who love their cheesy risotto. The barley pearls were whole and distinguishable, bearing a good bite without being a mush — bound together by stringy cheese, it's much of a delight to have considered it's pretty cheesy in flavour with different flavour contrasts with the different cheeses used. Comes with a popcorn salad — some may find the popcorn unnecessary but I quite like how it adds a slight earthy bite for it comes unsweetened and goes surprisingly well with the vinaigrette used for the salad. The pickled radish and beetroot gives the dish a refreshing change of flavours and textures — juicy, crunchy chunks/slices that helps cleanse the palate in between the heaviness of the cheesy barley risotto.

Rainy cold days got me thinking about something warm, soupy & extremely comforting.

The Sài Gòn / Fisherman Pork Noodle Soup ($12) is one comforting yet healthy choice! Instead of using pho, Mee Tai Mak (Rat's Tail) is used instead. This makes it easier for most to have spoonfuls filled with MTM & it's pork-filled clear broth, while preparing for that spicy yet light kick of chili to end off each mouthful.
Another item you should try if you're intending to head down is the Banh Xeo ($12.90) which is an eggy pancake filled with prawns, pork and fresh herbs! You can either have it on it's own, or wrap it with lettuce before popping it in!

For a Smart Lunch in the CBD

The set lunch ($30 for two-course, $38 for three-course, $58 for five-course) at this highly acclaimed restaurant (it's no.1 on our 2016 Hot 100 list!) is a value-for-money way to experience chef Rishi Naleendra's take on modern Australian cuisine. Get the three-course for a holistic experience that won't leave you feeling over-stuffed. The crispy-skinned Barramundi with charred lettuce, prawn floss and onion is an iconic main, but we also really enjoyed the complex profile of the Roast Pumpkin with spiced cashew nuts, kale and pumpkin seeds. Get the laksa-inspired dessert (if it's available) for something different — it's a really unique manly dish for those who don't fancy anything too sweet. We, on the other hand, loved the delicate flavours of the honeydew melon dessert.

In my opinioin, this JB San Lou Mee Hoon is a die-die-must-order at this place!

Despite the charred and flat exterior, the beehoon still retained some greasiness that made it even more enjoyable to savour. It had a distinct wok-hei flavour that permeated through the air upon being served. The addition of cuttlefish, kailan and generous amount of eggs made this perfect.
This place has been craziliy popular for ages and in the new location, the crowd seems to have multiplied — so book your table a few days in advance! The service was very slow (especially to place your orders) so don't go there starving.

Huevos Tostados ($26)

I loved my experience at SPRMRKT Daily previously and this time round, I went back to try SPRMRKT Kitchen and Bar, the sister outlet located on the second floor. First of all, the place is GORGEOUS, decorated with pink, teal and gold accents 😍 Norwonder so many bloggers come here to shoot their OOTDs 🤣

I tried the brunch menu, which offers totally different dishes from dinner (they have a T-Bone steak 😍😋). Decided on the Huevos Tostados — tender slices of flank steak set on top of a crispy (heng not soggy) taco shell, topped with one poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Yum!

Would be back to try their dinner menu — freshly shucked oysters here I come! 😍

For 24h Bak Kut Teh

Now I know where to go if I have nothing to eat near my house on rainy nights. The peppery BKT will definitely warm you up from the inside.

They also sell Pig Trotters that looks really good, would Try that next time :)

Sin Thor Bak Kut Teh


Firm to the bite, the spiral pasta's curves are the perfect carrier for that rich oxtail ragu inflected with herbs and a sprinkle of grated pecorino. It's delicious, but also rather pricey at $38++ for a main course portion.

Cinnamon Apple Crumble

From Hot Pans at The Bedok Marketplace, a new stall which serves Dutch Baby Pancakes. This was a classic flavour that can't get wrong; caramalised apples, apple cubes, raisins, cinnamon and salted caramel ice-cream atop a Dutch Baby Pancake served in a small pan. The pancake was eggy and crepe-like, crisp on the edges though it gets a little bit denser further in. At $7.50, this is possibly one of the most affordable baby pancakes you can get; would probably try their classic variant when I am back in the area some day.

Pizza Fries

4 munchies: Topped with smokey pepperoni and smothered generously with three types of cheese – gruyere, mozzarella and Parmesan, I liked how the fries were cut thick not only for a good bite, but also for getting more of the gooey cheese on them. The house-made bacon ketchup served at the side was absolutely smashing; it was sweet-savoury with hints of smokey bacon and caramelised onion flavours.

Pair this sinful bar bite with a couple of bottles of craft beers (I recommend the Tuatara APA & Castaway IPA) and you're set for a chill night by the bay! #Burpproved

Big Prawn Hor Fun

5 munchies: Large prawns, slightly charred hor fun slathered in a thick gravy that was infused with strong wok hei aroma – this is what a good zichar dish is all about. Resembling somewhat like a chilli crab sauce, I was already craving for more after wiping the plate clean with none of the mild-spicy, eggy sauce left.

The smallest portion may be priced at $16, but I'd not hesitate to recommend this absolutely delicious hor fun to anyone who wants to have a solid local fare.
