I swear I only ordered the Teys Riverine ribeye. But then, out walked Chef Shaun bearing this massive wooden board. On it was not just my steak and my friend's order of an AACo ribeye but a complimentary piece of Black Angus too; each weighing in at 200gms. Lined up along one side of the board was an eye-popping myriad of condiments that included a new truffle paste, The Betterfield's signature truffled mayo and assorted salts of the exotic type. As per his usual style, Chef Shaun briskly did his "fire-blasting" final touch to the meats at the table. After that, there was no stopping our attack.

I was really happy to have had this opportunity to taste all three types of beef at one go. It was a great way to learn how to tell the subtle differences between each kind and also to discover my favourite. As it turns out, the Black Angus with its pronounced "beefy" flavour appealed the most to me. Coming in at second place was the Teys Riverine and finally, the AACo. The reason I ranked the latter last is because it was the mildest tasting in my opinion. Which means it would suit those of you who don't like meats with a strong flavour. Having said that, I must declare their differences were minute and only by alternating between bites of each beef could I discern them, and even then, it took a lot of concentration. Interestingly, my friend had a different opinion. He ranked the Teys Riverine as number one, followed by the AACo and then, the Black Angus. It just goes to show how we all have different tastes! 😄

FYI: The Betterfield will be moving out of their present location around the middle of April. So if you want to savour some seriously good value steaks, or dig into one of their fabulous risottos, do make time to go very soon.

Linguine braised in homemade seafood bisque, crab meat, scallops + butter poached Boston Lobster tail (cost $24 + $10 for lobster tail).

We didn't need much convincing after seeing 'hazelnut butter' and 'figs' on the menu description for this, but I really wish that they used a light and fluffy brioche instead of the fig jam bread that just didn't quite deliver.

While I usually don't have problems finishing French toast for brunch (especially ones with contrasting components like Common Man's acidic berry compote or RONIN's bacon), I strongly recommend that you get this to share. Yes, it tasted good, but I have to admit that it looked and sounded better than it tasted.

While waiting for renovations to be done at Orchard Central, Tanuki Raw has taken up residence at Kapok. Tender beef with a huge slab Foie Gras, the rice was a bit grainy but overall good value. Come between 5-8 for $2 oysters and free sliders with every alcoholic drink.

Generous portions of tender beef with each ribbons of hor fun bursting with smoky flavours of wok hei. They are one of the many stalls that accept NETS FlashPay which makes paying super convenient! 😋

Toffee nut coffee and Apple pandan cupcakes are some of the best selling cakes made in-house and a bottle of cold brew is available at the slow bar for those serious coffee aficionados.
The boutique-cafe at 47 Amoy Street is open from Mon-Fri 8am-6pm and Sat 9am-4pm, it's never too early to get your adrenaline started and now you know where to find them.

Remember the durian creme brûlée I posted awhile ago? They have their own place now. The Quarters, situated at Icon Village, officially opened its doors a week ago, serving mod-sin cuisine as well as artisanal coffee.

In case you don't know, I got zero resistance when it comes to salted egg yolk and I know I must order the Salted Egg Fries. Well, it didn't disappoint. Golden, crispy shoestring fries with salted egg aioli. The fries stay crispy even after they are cooled. Awfully sinful but oh so good! 😋🍟

Pho Stop's pork chop rice is one of their best seller during lunch time and it run out easily with limited quantity they serve each day. Serving at their freshest and finest petite of meat each day and leaving your tummy satisfied with every visit at Pho Stop!

Warm alcohol is always unique. The flavours of this drink really went very well together. The scotch went well with the ginger and honey lemon. And it really taste better warm than cold. When it turns cold, the alcohol taste overpowers the other taste.

At only $5.50 for ramen soup and $3 for dry noodles with minced meat, these brothers have found a way to serve you great ramen at low prices. The chashu is well marinated and tender, the pork broth is flavourful, and the Kyushu-style noodes are thin and chewy. Add a beautifully stewed egg for only 50 cents. The best part? These brothers are actually bakers, so you can pick up some really good cookies to go after lunch. It's no wonder the queues are so long at lunchtime!

A couple of talented Singaporeans decided that ramen can be served at hawker prices, $5/6/7, and created this delightful version. Think springy wanton noodles coated in a garlic, ginger, onion infused oil, wantons, soy-flavoured hot spring egg, slices of melt-in-your-mouth chashu, and shrimp wrapped in crispy potato. This creative dish certainly is half the price, but easily as satisfying. Of course, don't expect this to replace your usual ramen!
