This doesn't look like the most appetizing thing on earth, but trust me, this Korean version of Thai mookata is SERIOUSLY delicious! Honestly we weren't sure if we were supposed to cook the wagyu beef slices and the assorted mushrooms on the central hotplate first before dunking them into the "river" of broth, or to cook them in the broth directly, so we did a mix of both. Either way, the end results were amazing! We enjoyed the beef so much, we ordered another portion. By the end of all that cooking, the broth had become so thick and sweet, it may not be ideal for slurping up as soup anymore, but it sure is perfect as "gravy" for rice! Two thumbs up!

It's already been 2 days since my restaurant week dinner at Privé grill, and still I can't get over how satisfying and delicious this was. The flambeed lobster tail is the most succulent lobster I have ever eaten, and the herbed mushroom risotto, which reminded me a little of potato gratin, was just as excellent. From the first to last mouthful I couldn't stop gushing to my boyfriend how much I adore this dish! Really wish they could include this on their regular menu; I so want to have this again!

We're all used to our duck confit being served on a bed of mashed potato, so the uncommon pairing here of duck leg and a sautéed corn-and-cucumber ragout, as well as puréed pumpkin sauce, is like a breath of fresh air! This combination is not only innovative; the resulting flavors and textures are pleasing on the palate, and definitely adds on a healthy touch! As with the salmon in my previous post, the duck leg too is expertly executed to impressive fork-tenderness!

Kilo's got a revamped menu (sadly with increased prices too) and if I don't remember wrongly this Squid Ink Rice is one of their new offerings, and a VERY GOOD one at that! Every component was faultless, from the salmon roe that pops in my mouth to the perfectly cooked grains to the best-I-ever-had deep fried baby squids. Not forgetting the flavorsome garlic aioli of cos, which marries all the ingredients so beautifully together. Highly recommend you give them a good mix before eating, and remember to spritz some lime over for added zest!

For me, Kilo is the kind of place where food is quite expensive but yet so delicious it's pretty much worth every single cent. The one dish I must order EVERY single time I visit, be it at the kallang or orchard outlet, is this Cream of Ebiko Pasta. The smoky chargrilled aroma that wafts from the grilled prawns is simply irresistible and entices my tastebuds even before I start to tuck in. These prawns are so fresh and sweet it had me wondering if they were alive right before the cooking. As you can see, the chef is also very generous with the amount of smelt roe topping, which adds great texture and savouriness to the sweeter cream sauce. Overall, this is one lip-smacking pasta that you should not miss!

Thanks to someone else's post on burpple, I learnt that we could call to "reserve" in advance so there was no agonizing wait! The generosity and variety of ingredients made this $15 portion well worth the money, and though this was probably meant to feed 3 people, my boyfriend and I had no issue polishing off the entire pot by ourselves. I was especially hooked on those plump juicy clams and tasty strips of roasted pork belly. I'd definitely have this again the next time I happen to be in toa payoh!

This dish which is romantically named Boston Love Boat on the menu doesn't appear quite impressive in this photo, but I assure you it tastes much better than it looks! The puff pastry is intact when served, and cutting through it unveils an array of seafood such as prawns, mussels and scallops, in generous portions. The tomato sauce that has accumulated at the base may verge on being too salty, but still it served as a delicious dip for the puff pastry and sweet potato fries!

We all know Arteastiq's forte lies in their range of specialty teas, so who would have guessed that the main courses here would prove to be just as delectable? Blanketed in a delicious sauce and perfectly complemented by a side of soft egg and some really-awesome sweet potato fries, this ribeye steak is one of the best I've had in a while!

Really impressed with how Guksu's signature drumsticks are so crispy on the outside, yet so juicy, tender, and flavorful inside, which is definitely no mean feat considering how most other KFC are only tasty on the outside, but dry and bland within. It's also great that there's no minimum order, so we got to order all 3 flavors (original, spicy, and soy sauce) to try. My fave? The soy sauce flavored one!

Drizzled in a garlicky sweet soy sauce that makes these crispy babies so incredibly delicious! Needless to say we stripped them down to nothing but bones, which we would gladly devour too if we could!

Ever since I had a 'crispy' cheong fun in Hong Kong 2 years back I've been hunting for something similar in SG n I've finally found one at XinYue! The thin crispy threads of fried flour embedded within not only add contrasting texture, but are also perfect for soaking up the soya sauce!

Never mind that I couldn't really taste the garlic in them, these pork strips had the right ratio of fat and were well marinated, tender and bouncy in bite. Really delicious!
