With 3 outlets in Singapore, the nearest to me was the Tampines store and they too are having takeaway and delivery options. There is always a feel-good-factor from eating such comfort food especially when its piping hot and there’s a bowl of white rice in front of you. Besides the signature dishes such as the sesame chicken ($5.80/$7.80) that’s cooked with ginger and spring onion to the healthy and nutritious chicken herbal soup ($6.80/$9.00), there are also other options with offals, fish, vegetables and seafood. However, there is one particular dish that I will highly recommend as we have been ordering it over the past few times is the Mala Chicken Mix ($8.80), which contains items such as enoki mushrooms, black fungus, tofu sheets and chicken cubes cooked in a spicy mala broth over a claypot. The spiciness level is more of the medium spicy as what you would normally get from mala xiangguo, hence, do prepare an iced beverage nearby.

And this can be in the form of LUMO, which coincidentally means light in the universal Esperanto language. Prior to the implementation of the circuit breaker, we had one final media tasting at LUMO, a brand-new cocktail bar and restaurant specializing in Modern European cuisine using techniques such as wood fire, fermenting, centrifuge and sous vide in their cooking and presentation. At the end of the evening, it was such a positive dining experience that we all went home belly satisfied.

Fortunately, during this period that we are not allowed to dine-in, LUMO has launched their takeaway and delivery menu for all to enjoy the “light”-er side of life in the comfort of your own home. Several of the dishes that we had during the media tasting are made available such as the Shoestring Fries ($14+) with mentaiko mayonnaise and bonito flakes, woodfired Sakura Pork Chop ($36+), Classic Apple Pie ($12+) and Burnt Cheese Cake ($14+).

All takeaways and deliveries are available from Monday to Saturday (12:00pm – 9:30pm) and you can place your orders via WhatsApp at 8921 3818. For takeaways, you will need to order 45 minutes in advance before collection. For deliveries, it is only available to selected areas within the Central region with a minimum order of $50, with addition of a flat fee of $5 delivery charge. Alternatively, you can enjoy free delivery for orders above $80. All orders require payment to be made prior to pickup or delivery.

Accompanying the barramundi are charred leeks and a duo of cremini and enoki mushrooms. Instead of mackerel, which is usually used in assam laksa, the choice of barramundi in this instance works perfectly for this dish as the firm meat texture brings a certain bite to complement the broth. Towards the end of the meal, you get an option to choose between the Tropical Tau Huey or Orange & Chocolate, which we got each of them to share. The former is a refreshing passionfruit granita, paired with macerated mango with chilli and coconut tau huey that a good blend of Asian and Western influences while the latter brought some Peranakan fare into the dessert with a candlenut ice cream and preserved orange peel chocolate mousse. This marks the end of a fine dine-in meal and we were fortunate to have had the opportunity for this meal prior to the circuit breaker as we are confined to our own home now.

The dinner menu consists of a snack, appetizer, main and dessert for each pax. For the snack, their signature Chicken Biscuit 2.0 is part of the option and this is something that we highly recommend you order from the restaurant. Made using chicken fat, the cookie base is topped with curry spiced cream cheese, chicken skin and finished with a turmeric mushroom dust. The explosion of flavours is unlike any chicken biscuit that you can get commercially and its so addictive that one is never enough. For the appetizer, the charcoal grilled pork ribs is our choice of order, which comes in a kombu crust and served with preserved vegetables and a sweet potato puree that has been spiked with mala spices. The tender meat falls off-the-bone easily and the surprise factor will definitely the myriad of flavours from sweetness to savouriness and numbing.

At Hawkerman, you can get dishes from Tenderfresh, Warong Kim’s Hokkien Mee and Ah Boy Popiah, and one such creation is the stir-fried hokkien mee served with a piece of fried chicken. Its everything you would wish for in a single plate that consists of slightly wet hokkien mee that has the essential wok hei and is sprinkled with generous amount of pork lard to a well-marinated and juicy piece of fried chicken. Fortunately for us, there are available on several delivery platforms and you can get them at the comfort of your own home today.

Thanks @where.is.karl for sharing these limited edition bakes and brighten up everybody’s mood in times like these. These buns smell amazing and taste even better with each bite, especially when you give it a generous spread of the butter. Filled generously with raisins, these are the perfect sweet treats with a cup of tea.

The former has two options from a Fresh Crab Cake ($5) served with a remoulade sauce and Quails Scotch Egg ($5) with a salad cream. Both canapes were equally delish, but my vote has got to go for the crab cake as scotch egg as the pairing of eggs with meat and into the deep fryer is just a genius creation by the English people. Next up, we had two of the mains from the bar menu, The English House Rump & Foie Gras Burger ($25) and Chicken Club Sandwich ($18). The burger comes with crispy bacon and melted cheese, which makes every burger complete with the addition of pomme frites.

The unique thing about these Japanese eggs is that each of the yolk comes in a golden orange hue that’s not only nutritious, they create a fluffy texture in the dishes. Based on their communications, these eggs even undergo a UV sterilisation process to rid of germs while reinforcing vitamins and minerals. My order of Oyako Don ($12.80) comes with a generous portion of chicken chunks over a bed of Japanese rice and the star of the bowl is definitely the tamago.

I fondly remember their superior soup to be robust and flavourful as they have added in Shaoxing wine before serving and their signature are the huge bursting meatballs. This time round, we also ordered their Dry Pan Mee that has been tossed in a special sweet dark sauce, served with an onsen egg and sides of minced meat, fried shallots and fried anchovies. In my opinion, the dry noodles are so good that I wouldn’t mind coming back again just for it with an additional order of meatballs in the superior stock.
