To celebrate the opening, diners can get the first taste of the limited-time Shackmeister menu, which will be available exclusively at this outlet before it debuts across all outlets on 5 October till 16 November. This Shackmeister menu consists of three items, namely the Shackmeister Burger ($10.90, single patty), Shackmeister Dog ($6.50) and Shackmeister Cheese Fries ($5.90). All three are upgraded versions of the normal orders with the addition of a generous topping of crispy fried shallots that has been first marinated with the custom-brew Shackmeister ale, coated with the Chick’n Shack batter, flour, cayenne and paprika before it goes into the deep fryer. If you have been requesting for onion rings to be included in the Shake Shack menu, now is the time to get the Shackmeister menu as these fried shallots are essentially onion rings in your burger, flat-top dog and fries.

In addition to the trio of Shackmeister, the other outlet exclusive item is the Matcha Made in Heaven, a vanilla Concrete dessert blended with strawberry yuzu jam and buttery shortbread and topped with matcha powder. Now you can play a part in supporting a charity as part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand for Something Good, 5% of the sales from the Shack Attack concrete desserts will go to a charitable organization.

Paying homage to the iconic shaker fries, IPPUDO has launched their own version named the Shaka Shaka Fries ($6.80) that lets you mix in the salted egg yolk powder into the bag of fries, give it a good shake before you enjoy this addictive snack. If you are looking out for some carbs, there’s the newly launched Teppan Rice that comes with crisp-fried ramen noodles, grilled wagyu beef ($13.80) or pork ($12.80) and a side of cheese lava sauce for you to pour in when served. There’s also the IPPUDO Spicy Chicken Wings ($8.80) and buns that contains salmon katsu ($4.50) or veggie patty ($4.50), served with three different sauces for you to choose from. And of course, you cannot not order their ramen when here, and my order of Shiromaru Motoaji hits all the right spots of a good bowl of comforting ramen noodles. To celebrate the opening of this new outlet, there’s a weekday lunch set promotion that runs till 14 October, in which you will get a ramen, side and drink for $15.90.

This new concept comes with a focus on new ramen creations such as the Niku King Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen Special ($20.90), which is a meat fest of pork chashu that will satisfy the carnivores of many on top of a ramen noodle base with a rich and creamy tonkotsu broth that packs an umami punch.

Walked past Western Mahua several times and finally decided to head over there for dinner on one of the evenings to get a taste of this popular chained restaurant’s Lanzhou noodles. The menu is pretty extensive with many noodle and snack options and I got for myself the Pickled Chicken Soup with Fatty Beef La Mian ($11.30). My collection of this pickled vegetable soup back when I first had it in China, was that the broth truly packs a punch in terms of the tanginess and spiciness that lingers at the back of your tongue. True enough, this bowl brought back these fond memories which will whet your appetite from the start but will make you reach out for a cold beverage as well. In terms of the quantity, you are definitely getting your money’s worth as the noodle portion is huge that I only managed to finish half of it while the fatty beef is a good complement to the overall experience. Perhaps I am not too used to it, but I find the flavour too sourish for me.

Boasting the similar traditional Chinese restaurant interior across its restaurants, the menu at Our Tampines Hub has all your favourite snacks and noodle options. As my regular order will usually be the Signature Bursting Meatball Noodles, this time round, I decided to try something different and got the Premium Beef Ball and Beef Slice Noodles, which was equally comforting and satisfying. The addition of the huadiao wine when the noodles are served add a layer of sweetness and fragrance in the clear broth while the bok choy and coriander give it the uplifting refresher to the overall noodle dish. If you have not tried GO Noodle House yet, do visit them one day and you will leave with a belly satisfied meal.

With a slogan attached to their branding of “Eat Fresh, Be Happy”, you can be assured that you will leave this place, after your meal, a happy person as they source for the freshest of seafood and poultry for their grill-cooking. There is a wide range of items in their menu from the premium cuts of Australia’s beef to chicken chops, fish fillets, pastas and much more. Everything we had that day hits the right spots from the appetizers of Cheesy Fries with Spicy Chicken Bits to the Josh’s Famous Onion Rings (yes, you heard it right, real onion rings, and not those powdered kind), everything came in a big portion that will definitely fill you up, and perfect as a sharing plate.

For the mains, we tried the AU Tenderloin and Char-grill Spicy Chicken Chop with Homemade Dynamite Sauce that will surely lit up your tastebuds on fire. Each of the mains come with two sides for you to choose from and I highly recommend the Mala Broccoli with Crushed Peanuts, an interesting side dish that totally gives you a little mala xiangguo effect and the refreshing Green Mango & Pineapple Salad. In addition to the meats, we shared a Prawn Aglio Olio that totally wowed us for its flavour profile and huge prawns that come with it. At such an affordable price point, this is a pasta dish that you should not miss out on. For its prime location at Bugis Junction, facing Liang Seah Street, this restaurant will surely be filled up very quickly and it will be best to make a reservation before heading down.

The last visit we had my absolute favourite, the Shakshuka with added chorizo, the best Fish & Chips in town and the Burrata heirloom tomatoes, and this time round the Shakshuka made its way to the table again with new tryouts of the Slipper Lobster Po Boy ($24) and Mushroom on Toast ($18). The former was an excellent breaded and deep fried slipper lobster sandwiches between soft buns, iceberg lettuce and chipotle that was instantly devoured within seconds. The latter, though a non meat dish, probably stole the show as the medley of mushrooms that contains the elusive blue foot mushrooms was perfect on top of a toasted bread, served alongside a dollop of vegemite custard to adds to the earthiness flavour and a side of sous vide eggs in a mushroom consommé. Definitely not a Van Gogh masterpiece, but we managed to create an eggporn shot of the mushroom toast which hopefully will whet your appetite further. To end off the meal, we had the Rosemary Panna Cotta ($16) which comes with ricotta ice cream and figs, a sweet ending to a wonderful brunch meal.

Step into any one of the four Brotzeits in Singapore during this period and you can savour the Oktoberfest menu that’s personally curated by new Group Executive Chef Lorenz Raich, an Austrian native who has a wealth of experience from working in Michelin-starred kitchens and boutique F&B venues before joining Brotzeit. If you have been to an Oktoberfest previously, you can expect hearty and comforting fare with lots of beer to go around the table.

Start off this celebratory occasion with the Cold Roast Pork ($16) of pork collar that’s marinated overnight with a secret 12-spice mix before slow roasted and chilled. The pork collar is then sliced thinly and mixed in with house-pickled daikon, rocket leaves and mustard aioli to awaken your tastebuds before diving straight in to the Crispy Fried Pig Ears ($12), Crispy Pork Cracklings($6) and chomp down on the Giant Pretzel that comes in two options, one with pork knuckle ($23) and the other with surprises of tangy red cabbage, pickles, hot mustard and Farmer’s sausage in between ($28). If you are still game for more meat, there is Crispy Roasted Pork Shoulder ($45), paying homage of the pork knuckle traditional eaten during the festival, and it comes with one of the crispiest skins you can ever put in your mouth. To fill you up, the pork shoulder is accompanied with potato dumplings and root vegetables.

We went there on a Sunday evening and the place has starting to fill up from 6:30pm. As it was our first time dining there, we decided to get a few cuts of different meats and sides to try. Whilst the buffalo wings, burnt end beans and corn bread with honey butter was excellent, the smoked meats were slightly underwhelming. The half chicken was very dry on the inside, the signature USDA beef brisket was not juicy even though there’s a layer of fats at the top and the Carolina pulled pork didn’t have that punchy BBQ flavour that we were expecting. Probably we didn’t have much smoked meats in the past hence this might not be a fair judgement but still a cool place to be at and we will want to try the other smoked meats for our next return. Last but not least, there might still be some teething issues in the operations to be ironed out as our orders came wrong initially which I hope will only improve in future.

As the lady loves her ramen, I suggested to have ramen since it’s raining heavily outside and fortunately this time round, we went to PLQ Mall after lunch peak hours and managed to get a table at Kanada-Ya after a short wait. Both of us got the signature ramen each which is the Kotteri Tonkotsu Ramen, and this is Kanada-San’s original recipe which comes with a thick and creamy tonkotsu broth that will literally coat your lips with the umami-ness after you have finish eating. The regular bowl is priced at $16.90 and comes with 3 slices of belly charsu, wood ear fungus, spring onion, hanjuku egg and 2 pieces of nori seaweed. There’s an ongoing promotion that lasts till 10 September where you get one free topping for any regular or special ramen ordered and I opted for an extra slice of pork collar added to my noodles.

Overall, it was an enjoyable bowl of ramen and we will definitely be back to try out the other ramen flavours to see if it can better the Kotteri Tonkotsu because to us, the broth and saltiness of the charsu already triumph. Additionally, the use of the thin ramen noodles in this instance is a genius move as it is able to latch onto the thick broth and every slurp you will be getting the ramen experience that Kanada-San intended it to be.
