The woodfired bakehouse and restaurant along East Coast Road, Firebake, has added new items into their existing menu and launched a refreshed weekday set lunch menu (available from Tuesdays to Fridays) that’s an absolute steal at $22 for a two-course of Appetiser (or dessert) and Main or $25 for a three-course meal of Appetiser, Main and Dessert. Operating hours have also been changed and the restaurant will operate from 11:30am – 10pm from Tuesdays to Fridays, and will be opening earlier over the weekends from 9am to cater to the early birds. One of the morning bakes that you absolutely have to order are the Milk Buns with Traditional Kaya ($3.50) as the amazingly soft buns with the homemade kaya jam is a match made in heaven.

The Firebake Tartine is an open-faced sandwich on a Seedy slice and the toppings will be seasonal, giving diners a different dining experience each time. The 220g striploin is grilled over a traditional wood stove till medium doneness and served with a salsa verde sauce, with a side salad that contains pickled onions that help to cut through the richness. On the other hand, the Seafood Risotto might just be the highlight of the meal as Arborio rice is cooked in a seafood stock and white wine with a medley of seafood like scallop, sweet prawn tails and mussels. The risotto is then finished with Grana Padano Parmesan and sherry vinegar to balance the heavy flavours, with a topping of a cut of grilled Mediterranean seabass. Last but not least, the Firebake Wagyu Cheese Burger takes centrestage with a thick patty of lean and fatty Australian Wagyu, grilled till medium-done and sandwiched between sourdough potato buns. To up the ante, Chef Konstantino added in a thick tomato-based beef sauce, that pays homage to his Greek heritage, into the burger. To end the meal, I highly recommend you go for the Lemon Lavender Cake for the perfect curtain call.

The Basque restaurant and bar, TXA Pintxo Bar, is Singapore’s first and only place that offers a spread of pintxo experience.

The favourite of the night was perhaps the Crème de Roquefort Con Manzana Y Nueces ($4.90 each) as the Roquefort cream with the addition of the apple jam and walnuts on top of toast was just a magical one-biter. The balance of textures from the whipped Roquefort cream and the crispy toast, to the flavours of creaminess and sweetness provide an excellent segway to the world of pintxo of the Basque culture.

Other delicacies that you can look forward to include the Pintxo Igeldo ($6.90 each) of confit tomatoes, tuna, anchovies and piparras peppers on toast, Croquetas de Jamon Iberico ($14 for 4 pieces) of deep fried little balls of Serrano ham and milk and the most interesting of the lot, the Blac Rabas “A Fuego Negro” ($22 for 5 pieces, pictured) which are essentially paying homage to the traditional squid ink donuts. With all the food that we have sampled, my choice of beverage has got to be the Tinto de Pintxos ($18), which is a cocktail that is made with red wine, pisco brandy, sweet vermouth and San Pellegrino roass sparkling water.

Admission is free for public and attendees can savour the food and immerse in the culture from 6 regions and 9 prefectures of Japan. In addition to the various donburis and signature dishes, there are food stalls that offer Hokkaido specialties and dessert stalls retailing authentic Japanese sweets. The fun does not stop there, as there will be daily cultural performances and film screenings of Japanese films from Shochiku Co.

Several highlights include the Premium Mikawa Isshiki Grilled Eel Donburi from Manma Ya (Stall 9) whereby the unagi is grilled and seasoned with a special Aichi tamara soy sauce, the Steak Donburi from Kokorokogare (Stall 2) and Chichibu Waraji Pork Miso Donburi from Find Chichibu (Stall 3). The latter contains pork cutlets that has been marinated in miso, deep fried and served with an onsen egg on white rice.

The Satay ($20) would definitely make an ideal sharing option as it comes with 12 sticks of chicken, beef and pork. Meat on a stick, that’s grilled to a nice char, is always appetizing, especially when there is also an accompanying sauce of peanut & pineapple to give it a nutty and refreshing citrus tang. The satay served here is different from elsewhere as the meats come in huge chunks and the marinate from the spices give it a nice aroma and flavour. My preference would be the chicken and pork as both were tender to the bite whereas the beef was slightly tough on this occasion.

Cooked till al-dente, the dish contains a medley of seafood such as squid, clam and prawn; with the addition of basil to freshen things up and garlic & chilli for the kicker. You might taste a slight sweetness from the broth as some beer was added to it, providing an additional layer of flavour.

If you are not aware, they brew their own beer in-house at the microbrewery at Dempsey; and with this new food pairing initiative pairs each tapas with a recommended craft beer.

Pictured are several of the hot tapas that will be made available such as the Wagyu Beef Meatballs that’s doused in a tomato sauce, Garlic Mushrooms that are juicy from every bite, Gambas tiger prawns that packs a spicy kick and White White Clams that goes well with a glass of Summer Ale.

When we first tried the boiled rice in JUMBO, it was already one of our favourites, and here, the pao fan was cooked in a different broth and it contains pomfret and dried shrimp. A meal is not complete without desserts and they serve a very good bowl of Tau Suan with Gingko Nuts ($5.20, pictured). What clearly stood out was the addition of orange peel to have a balance of flavours where you get notes of sweetness and bitterness from each spoonful, making it an excellent curtain call to a meal.

During the media tasting, we were treated to several of Zui Yu Xuan’s favourites and three that stood out the most are the sea cucumber, pomfret and rice boiled Teochew style and the tau suan dessert.

Together with the existing Chui Huay Lim Teochew Cuisine, Zui Yu Xuan pays tribute to the Teochew culinary heritage with authentic dishes such as the Crispy Fried Sea Cucumber and Shiitake Mushroom with Abalone Sauce ($24 per portion, pictured). This has got to be my favourite for the night as the sea cucumber is fried to give it a crispy texture on the outside with a more gelatinous bite in the inside. The contrasting texture is so interesting and something that it’s hard to find it being prepared this manner elsewhere. Paired with the umami abalone sauce is like a match made in heaven as it coats your lips with a rich layer that’s coming from the braising liquid and sea cucumber.

Other dishes in the menu that we have tried include the Cold Crab ($12/100g), a range of appetisers such as Ngoh Hiang ($13), Homemade Puning Beancurd ($12), Pig Trotter Terrine ($13), Deep Fried Prawn Balls ($22) and a soul comforting bowl of Geoduck Clam Blanched in Superior Broth ($16.80/100g).

At Le Shrimp Ramen, the signature options are the noodles in the shrimp broth with big prawns, ebiko prawn paste and braised pork ribs. For people who like me are lazy to peel the prawns but yet likes prawn noodles will be happy to know that the Ebiko Prawn Paste Shrimp Ramen ($13.90) is the perfect solution. The crunchy handmade prawn paste that’s topped with ebiko, paired with the al dente Chinese la mian in that umami shrimp broth is just super comforting and affordable for that price point. What’s even more surprising is that the broth actually is rich and smoky unlike other prawn soup outside that is lighter, while the perfect complement is the unassuming charred cabbage that’s hidden underneath everything. The cabbage lends a certain sweetness and texture that will balance out the richness.

The Chen’s Original Spicy Dry Noodles ($14) are handmade in-house and tossed in a minced meat peanut sauce that’s so good that one portion is never enough.

A must-order whenever you are there, the stir fried tofu that’s cooked in a hot Szechwan pepper meat sauce is presented in a claypot and goes hand-in-hand with a bowl of white Hokkaido steamed rice. With the right balance of spiciness and numbness, this is an amazing dish that you’ve got to try to understand the hype.
