Face it, you can't always be like a hippie and go to out of the place cafés just for mediocre food. Here's a review of easily accessible restaurants!

Quite odd that a $42++ dish contained what looked like strands of deep fried hair (clarified later by the chef to be strands of inedible rope due to the packaging of the chilli). Not 1 or 2 strands, but too many strands to count, positioned indiscriminately between the small pieces of fried chicken and chilli . This dish was waived off from the bill, but it makes me question the standards and quality of this place.

A whole roasted chicken for $18++! Chicken was tender and rather succulent, better if the marinade penetrated more deeply. The cream sauce was a bit milky but complemented the meat well. Comes with delicious sautéed button mushrooms, and a creamy and light mashed potato.

The beef noodle was good, with a spicy and savoury beef broth and firm noodles. Bamboo shoots were cleaned and cooked well. Dan dan noodles (dry) was quite okay, but the small bowl of soup was stellar! Also tried the fried rice which was bland. The Xiao long baos were pretty disappointing. The skin was too thick at the top, very little soup inside with mushy minced meat. Had a few other forgettable dishes as well. I would recommend just getting the noodles here.

The fried egg plants were good! Crispy outside, soft on the inside. Pita bread was quite disappointing, limp and stale. The sauce was too tart for my liking, and a lot of sauce was given which pooled at the bottom of the bread. Thankfully, there was a bowl for me to pour out the sauce. Priced at $12.50.

This large pot of piping hot seafood hor fun is guaranteed to fill you up! There is also plenty of sliced fish, squid and prawn. Very satisfying, especially for its price of $8.80 (weekday lunch set). Set also comes with a very refreshing yuzu tea!

The chicken collagen soup is delicious! I finished the soup down to the very last drop. The chicken meat was quite disappointing though, tasted a bit stale although it was tender. The prawns were very fresh! Quite expensive at $25++ per pax.

The broth is good! Full of seafood goodness and spicy. Pretty little seafood given, pieces of squid prawns and mussels here and there. I would recommend sharing between 2 people.

The rice was quite wet, and overall felt like it was just a tiny step up from the average food court Korean food stall. The crispy seafood does help with the umami factor though! Priced at $14++. The portion is suitable for 1 pax.

Located at The Star Vista food court at level 2, this western stall serves up cafe worthy dishes such as Salted Egg Seafood pasta and Egg Benedict on toast. But my attention was diverted away to this $8 sirloin steak. Heavily marinated with rosemary, it's not the best cut of steak, and I would say it's barely passable for $8. I wouldn't recommend it, but I will come back to try out the more interesting pasta dishes!

The one thing to get here is this glorious tomato cheese kimchi pancake. The tomato base Korean pancake was slightly savoury, crispy at the sides and spongy in the middle, topped with a pool of mozzarella cheese. Seriously drool worthy!

Choice of 3 stews here: Beef ribs, pork ribs and chicken. I tried all and found the chicken stew the most pathetic one, in terms of portion, price and taste. At $16/$18++ for one pax, I feel the stews are rather expensive. Each stew comes with plain rice and you can top up $6 for a rice ball. I preferred the tuna rice ball over the anchovy. Skip the steam egg, which wasn't smooth and very ordinary. There is free flow of kimchi and mash potato with corn.

Huge, chunky pieces of fish that were pretty fresh. The slightly lumpy and cold rice wasn't as appealing though. The mochi that came as a dessert (set lunch) was great, with a smooth cream custard filling in the middle. Do make reservations during weekends especially if you're coming in a big group.
