Sundays

My typical Sunday goes like this light breakfast > church service > lunch > a whole family day > dinner... Pretty normal except I have the best family that likes to eat.... A lot so sundays become our good food day and in this space I'd like to share the good stuff we have (':

After a day out at universal studio Singapore, Burpplebeyond kindly gave us the option to dine at Duckland that we’ve only heard about.
While the Irish duck was not available due to COVID, we had a decent spread of a hybrid menu between Chinese fare and English grub.

For example 烧鸭面 and 咸菜鸭汤, versus the above pie with duck meat. The Chinese fare was flavourful, while the duck meat was nothing spectacular- maybe we should come back for the Irish duck.
As for my pie with on point flakes and layers, the tough duck breast meat was the downside with a little too much potato chunks instead of tomato & pineapples I was anticipating.

Places like Cook & Brew makes me momentarily happy- there is nothing to dislike about one, dinner with a view of our city skyline even though parts would potentially be covered by office skyscrapers. Two, fun sides to pair with a happy hour that’s almost all night long on weekends (ending at 10pm).

To elaborate on point 2, I’d recommend the whipped buffalo milk ricotta cheese - that’s sweetened with truffle honey. I could have the entire jar with grilled bread on its own. The prince Edward black mussels were also deliciously cooked in Asian flavours of Thai green curry, mango chilli and coconut - the sauce should be a sin not to polish with the grilled bread around (if there is not enough this can easily be fixed at $6 for extra slices).
For cleaner tasting sides the tartare of Norwegian salmon is a good option, but how could we forgo the variety of fries on the menu? My family finished the sweet potato and crispy nori fries effortlessly.

Lastly the tomato penne was tasty and comforting to have, if you are not a pasta connoisseur. We would also skip our fried calamari on the next visit for we had better. More interesting fries instead, to pair with drinks please.

More indulgent food because it was a birthday month - writing please keep up with the eating.
So I choose Fratelli as I was craving Pizzeria Mozza’s legendary “pies”; also the family have not visited Sentosa in awhile.
Well aware I should manage my expectation as Mozza’s pizzas are hard to contend against, I found the pizzas here a better choice compared to their pastas. The former’s narrow thin crust makes it really easy and enjoyable to finish in full.
I was discombobulated when I had a spoon of gnocchi and ravioli, wondering if I was having cooked dough or pasta. I promised my brother we’d try the potato gnocchi at Nassim Hill’s one day to accustom his palate to what gnocchi should taste like.

I blame the benchmark for great Spanish Tapas at My Little Tapas Bar (Ann Siang) for the lacklustre experience here. First the bread (my favourite carb) at tapas club was innocuous with nothing to mask its banality. Neither a limp tomato salsa dip nor a nice bed cooked vegetables topped with an organic fried egg dubbing as a vegetable ratatouille.
Also a suggestion to avoid the salmon and avocado salad here as you could assemble these easily at home; I’d recommend the paella instead.

While we waited close to an hour for our mains to be served on a packed Saturday night, I devoured these brain like dumplings in glee washing it down with my stale leftover Chardonnay.

Tortellini stuffed with ground beef, mushrooms, slow cooked bone marrow and water chestnut. Served in rich beef broth and fried shallot- as written in the menu description. All I can say it sure tasted the part with an umami broth I craved, and if better beef was incorporated this has potential of a knock out item to have.

What went down last Saturday afternoon - what my fav ST food writer @msposhnosh would call the best pork satay she had only the pork ran out and the chicken was the best chicken satay I’ve had doubling as chicken yakitori with a Singapore flavour 😋

The weekends have been so enjoyable as of late #1, with time to roam Geylang on a Saturday evening to hunt for food (not advisable to do alone as a female). The Skewer Bar was my take out choice for my birthday this year aka when our nation went into circuit breaker mode, so to be able to dine in at the restaurant-bar this time round was something to be thankful about. The ability to plow through a menu, discover new items in successful rounds of orders- choosing to add on and having the liberty to order again was something we did not appreciate before.

TSB delivered just like they did as a takeout option- some of the items I’d return for was this piping hot grilled eggplant with kick ass chilli; tender grilled squid and the shishamo - oh that glorious beads of egg roe within and a crisp exterior.

Is this the onset of the family’s post COVID dining trail? Dining out on both days of the weekend after 2(?) months (I’ve lost count) of #stayhome shenanigans.

Was overjoyed when I notice Tonito’s set menu refreshed with a different pasta and an addition of soft tacos. As our 6 dishes (5 from the Burpple Set, and 1 ala carte order) were successively served, I am happy to report that the elation was generally sustained.
While we were missing the fully furnished nachos that was from the previous set, the “naked” nachos served as a nice teaser for a delicious wider variety.

I previously wrote that the quinoa salad won me over and it remains just as paradoxically appetising and decadent.
On the mains, the trustworthy soft tacos at Tonito comes with tender chicken cubes - a benchmark for the Latin American staple. As for the crab pasta, a hearty take on tomato pasta - al dente.

To end off an already solid meal, the tart pineapples atop soft coconut cake drenched with (condensed?) milk and cream for dessert left us rolling out the restaurant with filled bellies (figuratively).

The first family dine out experience after months of stay-home dining since COVID hit us was at South Union Park and boy was it great to be out for hearty restaurateur grub.

With burpple 1 for 1 we had 2 portions of the new short rib katsu dish. An excellent decision as the tender “fall off the bone” ribs in a fried breaded crust was almost revolutionary when you contemplate the technical cooking attention that went into ensuring the crust remains crunchy and meat remains tasty yet tender. On a bed of napa cabbage and interestingly dark onion purée, this was a substantial and balanced meal for me.

For a starter I decided on the seafood minestrone because almost every other table had a serving. Be patient to let the fresh out of the oven soup cool after you cut through the flaky puff pastry that felt like the pride of a pastry chef if handmade (context: I have been baking so much as part of my COVID diaries activity and boy are crusts, flaky pastries a true challenge). Yet the captious palate would have preferred other fresh seafood instead of scrawny shrimps and shelled clams.
