Home-cooked food is always my favourite, and this is probably my most favourite so far 😍 Presenting chef @zihtay's sous-vide pork chop with sous-vide egg with arugula salad, carrot purée and roasted potatoes with herbs as well as Thai Milk Tea with nice hints of spices (homemade chai thai milk tea ❤️).

Seriously, those potatoes were superb! And also, the famous Hougang Muah Chee (and Creamier's ice cream and Frozen by A Thousand Blessings's froyo) to end our meal. Thanks for feeding us and please set up a café soon 😉

I'm often pretty indifferent about (Chinese-style) fish curry, but this fish curry was the highlight to our dinner that day.

Although it didn't satisfy my craving for spicy food, the fragrant and rich curry was addictive, thanks to the generous amount of coconut milk. The fish was surprisingly huge and that's why it just sank to the bottom of the claypot every time we pulled it up for photos!

Forever a boring person when it comes to bubble tea (or tea in general), I always go for winter melon tea with herbal jelly (or black tea for my hot cup of tea).

Yet, I fell in love pretty quick with Yuan Cha's offering on traditional teas. Their premium teas (Lishan, Alishan, Ziya Shan, Chai Shao OL, and Red Oolong) are only sold hot and can be re-brewed for 2-3x. My favourite was their Apple Vinegar Oolong that provided a refreshing tangy kick with a tinge of oolong bitter aftertaste. I also love their Snow topping, which is essentially a sweet cloud of milk foam with a nice thick consistency. That would go very well with practically any of their tea!

The bowl that started my dry banmian craze.

Didn't know that banmian could be THAT nice and qq! They gave a generous portion of minced meat, fried ikan bilis and veggie too. And as usual, I just had to pour some of the egg-y soup into the noodle, so I could easily slurp the noodle. Oh, and don't fool around with their chilli — definitely not for the faint-hearted!

Was lucky to get to try this just before they changed the flavour into Watermelon (this week's special flavour).

Black sesame and matcha flavour are a classic combination that can hardly go wrong — and so are they in this rendition. We enjoyed whacking the chewy mochi donut, soaking in the black sesame ice cream and intense matcha glaze. Hopefully can squeeze some time to try their other special flavours for the upcoming weeks.

Airy, light and melt-in-your mouth greek yogurt that blew my mind away with its whipped cream-like texture.

Was hoping I could get another serving all for myself 🙊 The toppings did add more nuance to the yogurt, but really, I would just wipe it clean without any.

What's going to PIM PAM without trying their paella?

The squid ink paella here was superb. It had (almost) a 1:2 ratio of squid to rice grains and the bite-sized squids were so tender that you wouldn't get tired chewing them. The briny squid ink gave the much needed wetness to bring the different elements together. If you are looking for a nice romantic first-date-kind-of-meal, the squid ink might be a turn-off, but trust me, it was worth the black stains on your teeth and lips. Portion might not be that fulfilling for most people but then again, it's tapas, so you need to pace yourself out throughout the meal. Tbh I was already 3/4 full while having this paella.

With the unpredictable weather these days, this bowl of cheng teng is perfect to counter the heat.

They have a few outlets (including Clementi Food Market near my place!) and consistently sell good bowls of cheng teng. For $2, this bowl surely had a generous amount of white fungus, candied winter melon, candied lotus roots, dried persimmons, dried longans, gingko nuts, barley grains, sago pearls. And most importantly, not too sweet for you to wipe the bowl clean! *

Really hungry right now and thinking about this supper I had last week.

The (mildly) spicy lala clams were the star of the meal and it went so well with some porridge. Might be quite far from my place but the good thing is that they're open till 5am! I'd say skip the egg and duck though :(

Went into a "fish soup" crazy mode last week, conquering 3 fish soup places in a week (2 regulars + 1 new).

Was dragged all the way to Far East Plaza to try this fish soup, but no complain! It was a really good bowl of clear soup with prominent garlicky taste. Ordered the double fish because I knew I wouldn't have time to go back there soon (and partially because I was indecisive) but forgot to ask for milk 🤦🏻‍♀️ Still an enjoyable bowl I must say! The part that I loved the most was actually the deep fried egg skin (the excess chao dar part of fried egg) soaked in the soup. This fish soup was a different style as compared to my 2 other "regulars" and probably not everyone will enjoy this as much. But then again, to each its own; I happily ended my fish soup streaks with this bowl!

Hope your day is as bright as this gorgeous "Sunny" sunflower plated dessert 🌻 the coconut biscuit base and almond sponge body held so many things within and on top: Chamomile Honey Parfait, Ginger Lime Foam, Pure Peppermint Tea Infused Peach, Lemongrass Apricot Coulis, and Chamomile Espuma.

Sounds too herbal and healthy for you? Fret not because the meringue petals and kaffir lime would lend some sweet and tangy kicks to the palette. It was way too pretty to be destroyed (and that gold leaf on top 😍).

Tender and perfectly grilled, the whole Japanese squid was definitely the star of the dish.

Do squeeze some lime juice as its tanginess enhanced the "grill" flavour further. I wasn't not a fan of the carrots, which I found quite tough to bite (prefer the soft ones for my lazy teeth ☺️). I suggest you get some carbs because the meal was not that filling, especially if you're (constantly) hungry. Glad that finally I tried this much-hyped grain bowl, but at the same time, I reached the conclusion that healthy grain bowls are not my thing.
