Also, I'm scooting off to Japan tomorrow, so stay tuned for the pics! But before that, wanna share my recent visit to 136 Hong Kong Street Fish Head Steamboat, to tryout that Claypot Mee Tai Mak ($5) which people are raving about. I enjoyed this so much, the very definition of shiok-ness! 😋😋😋Starchy and carbo-heavy max, but the umami OOMPH! (Also because I like Mee Tai Bak lah, ok?) Well, people are saying that they've closed down. Don't despair if you are a fan. Yes, they closed down their Toa Payoh branch, only because they've officially shifted! So fans of this, you can still enjoy it at their new venue: 
Blk 713 Clementi West St 2 (Postal Code: 120713) 
You're welcome. 😁 Deets will be up on the blog soon.

snapper fish and chips $29.50 (i'm in love with beer batter now) and smoked salmon pizza $27.50.

Can't quite have enough of this Malay style croquette. Lovely hand made mashed potato balls full of spring onion, cilantro, shallot, coated with eggs and deep fried. The skill to get this right is more than knowing the recipe. Eaten with soto curry, heavenly. http://ri.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrwNFfJcsVTMj8AwvPJ1yU5;_ylu=X3oDMTEzdmd0NDdyBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA3NnMwR2dGlkA01PU0cwMV8x/RV=2/RE=1405477706/RO=10/RU=http%3a%2f%2fwww.food.com%2frecipe%2fbegedil-malaysian-deep-fried-potato-patty-356439/RK=0/RS=G5ACBAi0pR5G9MY1Mz40LZoThH8-

Tanyoto, a popular steamboat chain from Sichuan, has been in Singapore for a few years. Compared to many other steamboat eateries, its prices are on the high side. Which is why the "supper a la carte buffet" is pretty good value for money. At $32.40++ per adult (weekday rate, add $2 for weekends and holidays), you get to pick from a rather extensive menu that includes different types of seafood, meat, vegetables, mushroom, beancurd etc. I highly recommend the Sichuan dumplings (they have a tasty juicy filling), sliced beef (very lean cut) and the beef balls (it is served as a paste for you to scoop spoonfuls to drop into the boiling soup). There're a few options for the soup with the popular ones being the signature tomato and the spicy "mala". For me, the highlight of this restaurant is the mix-and-match-your-dip section. They provide a mind-boggling range of condiments with everything from soya sauce, vinegar and satay sauce to oils (both sesame and garlic) to sesame paste and fresh-cut parsley and spring onions. Chilli paste "made from a secret recipe", mini roasted peanuts plus raw minced garlic are just a few more of what's available for you to concoct your dip to your heart's content with. Seriously fun dining experience coupled with quality ingredients make this my go-to destination when I feel like having steamboat.

First saw this on a local food TV programme, had forgotten about it until a friend mentioned it again. Perfect timing since we happened to be in the area today. Interesting old-school feel, pretty tasty (and retro) western pastries/cakes, but don't expect anything out of this world.

Had the one with Sumatran beans, which is the stronger option. Delightful fruity after taste. Like the space. Good for meetings.

Still the best in Singapore, IMO. The bun is soft and airy, not doughy, while the sweet, slightly buttery custard within is nicely balanced with the grainy saltiness of salted eggs. Major love!!

Highly recommended by Alvin, who hails this as one of the best Laksa in Singapore. Local delights. $2 classic.
