A must order whenever you're at the Hawker Centre; albeit a long queue, it moves pretty quickly as the store helpers move & scoop out the kuehs in a swift & precise motion.
The cai po (preserved radish) comes dripping in oil, but that's the beauty of it - it helps to add flavour & keep the moisture of the kueh, allowing it to sit out for awhile without becoming tough.
Throw on some sweet sambal chilli & you've got yourself a good kick, without killing your taste buds. •

With ingredients that he can get from the local wet markets, Chef Ming creates dishes that are simple yet extremely flavourful.

One of my personal favorites from the dinner was the Wild Grouper in Chilli Crab Sauce. Served with a side of milk bread (baked in-house as well) & Crab Mayo (meat from the mud crab mixed with a little mayo), this is one unanimous dish that everyone nods with approval.
I love how the fish was fried skin down till it was crispy, like crackling. The meat in itself was sweet, but the best part was the sauce! Imagine your usual Chilli Crab Sauce, but packed with a lot more punch, chilli & of a thicker consistency. It was so good that we easily wiped it all out with the bread, fish, and if we could, we'd have licked it as well. •

This amazing, & oh-so-sinful Cheesy Mac Burger ($18) is one solid gold winner of all burgers.
Instead of buns, you've got yourself two Mac & cheese deep fried patties that sits on either ends of the burger.
In between those 2 are your thick juicy beef patty, bacon, caramelised onions, arugula & more cheese.
Well, I don't have to say much, but I'm sure you can already imagine how insanely good this burger is.
Before you start drooling, do note that this burger is available for a limited time only! They're available till the 30th of November, so you've got about 1.5 months to indulge & walk them off by walking home. •

We were in for a treat as we tried out 16 different dishes, ranging from simple one meal dishes such as hor fun to items meat for sharing such as satay!
For me, the obvious winners were the Char Kway Teow & Har Cheong Gai (Prawn Paste Chicken). Generally, most CKT are pretty oily, but packed with so much flavor from the cockles & Chinese sausage. With 7Up, you can wash that all away with one mouth, then proceed on to take another scoop of CKT & slowly finishing the entire portion on your own.
As for the Har Cheong Gai, well, this is a sure win dish too. The lemon flavours within 7Up helps to alleviate the saltiness in the prawn paste batter, making it easy for you to eat your through the entire plate (or two) of HCG.

The lunch sets are definitely value for money as it comes with the a potion of salad, pickles, appetizer, soup & your main!
We had the luck to try out the meaty options, such as the Yakitori Don ($14), Gyutan Don ($18), Mille Feuille Katsu Don ($17) & Steak Don ($19). For those who prefer something lighter / seafood, you can try out the Salmon & Tuna Poke ($18) or the Salmon & Avocado Don ($17). Diving into the evening menu, you do get a couple of rice bowls too, but it's the yakitori menu that takes over! Indulge yourself in the different parts of chicken, such as the Gizzard ($4), Heart ($4), Liver ($4) & Oyster ($4.50). Or share this personal favorite of mine, Liver Mousse ($16) that's served with Bourbon & Yuzu Marmalade.
Enjoy everything with sake by the cup, or order a bottle to share!
Thank you @burpple for this eat up invite & the team at Birders + boss man, Adam Chen, for your kind hospitality!
More reviews up on the Burpple in abit!

At $8, you get a bowl full of fish maw, in a pork stock filled with minced pork, goji berries, meat balls, eggs, seaweed & chives.
The fish maw helps to provide a different texture to your everyday BCM & helps to alleviate the flavours of the broth as well!
Excited to bring everyone here later on during my TTT, see y'all! 👋🏼 #burpple #aroundwithamd

If you've not been here before, Barashi Tei is located conveniently just a stone throw away from PoMo, and they open till late!

Some of the new items on their menu that we managed to try were the Foie Gras Sushi ($15.80 for 2), Wagyu Beef Don ($38.80), Kushi Mori ($18.80 for 8 Skewers), Ikura Chawanmushi ($6.80) and the Uni Chawanmushi ($9.80). Some of the old hot favourites includes the Spicy Salmon Maki ($14.80), Agedashi Tofu ($7.80) and Moriawase ($28). For those who prefer heavier tasting dishes, the Foie Gras Sushi will definitely be something to try! A generous slice of foie gras is being grilled then slathered in teriyaki glaze before being placed atop sushi rice.
Alternatively, if you're looking for just plain ol' sashimi, order the Moriawase, which consists of 12 pieces of fresh, thick and succulent pieces of assorted sashimi.

I managed to try their popular Gyu Don ($15.80) & Napolitan Pasta with Hamburg ($15.80). What I love about this self-heating bento is the ability to heat up your food as & when you need it, allowing you to have pipping hot meals right at your desk or wherever you are!
Their Gyu Don is one of the must-trys with a generous portion of sliced beef, tossed with caramelised onions sitting a top a bed of Japanese rice. In hope you don't fall into a food coma, it also comes with a side of pickles.
If rice is too much for you, go for the Napolitan Pasta with Hamburg! With the pasta being a tomato-based dish, that sweet tangy sauce goes well with the huge slice of meat patty.

The first dish that arrived was a beautiful claypot of Porridge with Tofu Butter, Puréed Century Egg Yolk, topped with Swordfish, Crispy Shallots and Pickled Daikon.
This version of zhok (粥) is the Cantonese version of porridge where the consistency is thick, rice grains broken & almost gooey, but that's I love and remember having growing up.
With the addition of Tofu butter & puréed century egg yolk, you got yourself a savoury yet fairly heavy tasting base, but the pickled daikon & crispy shallots that comes along helps to pack each mouthful with a surprise element, cutting through the heaviness of the porridge.
A fairly simple dish, but definitely one of my favorite from that night!

With lunch sets starting at $8.80++ for a 2 course set (yes, forealz), one of the standout dishes that we tried was Spicy Balacan Seafood Linguine Pasta.
Surrounding the pasta was plump and succulent prawns and squid, tossed in spicy balacan. For all spicy food lovers out there, this definitely hits the right spot. With balacan that's sweet, yet packed with a spicy punch, every mouthful could bring you to tears, if you can't take chilli that is, but it's perfect for me.

Thank you @burpple for inviting us to the eatup and the team at Coalesce for hosting us!

Lucky for me, I managed to find out about Watami's Lunch Set Menus, starting from $9.90++. I had the Pepper Beef Rice in Stone Pot Set ($9.90) which was pretty much similar to a hot stone chain restaurant, but with better grade beef & ventilation.
The generous slices of beef lays atop a bed of what seem to be garlic seasoned rice, and sprinkled with corn, salt & pepper. As it's a hot stone pot, the heat from the stone cooks the beef quickly which leaves you a nice char to the beef, plus some crispy chunks of rice with that.
Each lunch set comes with a side salad, an agedashi tofu, miso soup and a choice of drink (tea or soft drinks). Definitely one of the more worth it set menus I've had in quite awhile! •
