Back to my favourite place for soya sauce noodle, this time i ordered extra dumplings and char siew, me always extra, always! 😁 i ordered upper thigh part of the chicken but it somehow lost in translation and i got the whole leg, no problem! The seller said she was afraid i won’t able to finish them all, i said no worries, i finished them all of course! The chicken was as flavourful tender and juicy as alwas, with that special sauce and the spring onion condiment takes it to the next level, the dumplings were tasty and the char siew this time was so juicy as i had the fattier part! I will keep coming back to this place!

Walking pass “Labarador Malay Stall”, i spotted someone having his Lontong, the colour of the “kuah” (gravy) was so intriguingly yellow that made me turn around and ordered one myself.
I asked for extra rendang which resulted in doubling the price from regular lontong $3 to $6 for lontong with additional rendang. Fair enough.
Lontong sayur is a common Malay breakfast in Indonesia including in Padang.
Lontong means rice cake and sayur means vegetables. There are many different versions with different vegetables, could be just the classic cabbage carrot and long bean or the exotic ones like young jackfruit or fern tips.
This one is the classic one found in many places in Singapore with cabbage and long beans, with extra friend bean curd/tofu and boiled egg plus serundeng (spiced grated coconut) on top made it so appealing.
And the taste.. I was hooked ! It was so good, not so strongly heavy/lemak but it has a good balance of the spices all together, dominantly turmeric i have to say (which i really like) with galangal and lemongras.
I have tried their Nasi Padang before which was ok, but this lontong sayur is one of the best i’ve had in Singapore.

Good morning! Reminishing the good old days when they were still at Telok Ayer Hong Lim Green Community Centre, where i enjoyed the breakfast overlooking the green pastures. This local kaya toast created a twist of the local kaya toast with Italian style bread, ciabatta toast and orange ciabatta toast which made me choose this over the other same types of kaya toast cafe. They claim that their granulated kaya spead is handmade daily with natural ingredients and no added preservatives. I had my usual Kopi C Kosong which didn’t dissapoint and oozy soft boiled eggs. The standard of the orange ciabatta seems to dropped a bit, the ciabatta i had was a bit tougher than normal, or perhaps i had a bad batch? Well, i will still return again next time!

Steamed white bread with kaya and peanut butter which was excellent combination of flavours, runny soft boiled egg and my usual Kopi C Kosong. A classic Singaporean breakfast with a twist.

Quinoa Goreng at Red Baron in Gillman Barracks.
Red quinoa cooked like nasi goreng, a healthier choice as quinoa is packed with protein, with pieces of prawn and chicken and it is a bit spicy as they cook it with chili padi, the sunny side up was on point with pieces of fried ikan bilis. Interesting, creative and well executed!

Big breakfast with buttery scrambled egg (you can choose betwen that or sunny side up or egg white omelette), grilled haloumi cheese on top of rocket with hint of honey, which is divine, cooked portobello with pesto on top, cooked sweet juicy red tomato on vine, beans with spicy tomato sauce which i really enjoyed, multi grain toast and i had extra side of avocado. Everything was very good except for the avocado was slightly off, you can see the brown bits from the picture, maybe i just i was just unlucky, but they shouldn't have served the over riped avocado like that.. the place was lovely, great place for Sunday brunch in Gillman Barrack, which is not over crowded, indoor and outdoor area. Would i go back again? Definitely!

Crown Breakfast, a big breakfast platter to share, sunny side up egg with a crown puff, with red wine-braised oxtail, chicken sausage, back bacon, sauteed mushrooms, baked tomato & a side of salad. The oxtail was fall off the bone tender, an extra side of bread would have been perfect!

Squid Ink Waffle with smoked salmon, poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Savoury waffle, surprisingly good and perfect with a cup of good macchiato. It was a great start of the day!

Poached eggs on top of english muffins, smoked salmon topped with hollandaise sauce, eggcellent!

Soft sous vide egg wrapped in bacon and blow torched hollandaise sauce, on top of chewy english muffin with saute mushroom, one of the best i've had, hands down.
