Part of their new menu, go try their sous vide chicken breast and Japanese rice bowls if you haven't! A little secret: the head chef used to work at Fat Cow! #WYneweats

The meats, 62 degree onsen egg, daikon, and kimchi are cooked with extreme care, all done with the sous vide method - delicious! 🍴

Wheeler's Yard recently released their new menu about a month ago, which has infusions of both Japanese and Western cuisines. 🍴
This has got to be the best dish of the day. On normal days I would only opt for chicken breast as a 'healthy' or 'simple/lazy' option (cause I'm lazy to pick out the bones); breast meat was never regarded as a 'tasty' part. However, this chicken breast dish wipes all those presumptions away. Done sous vide style, the chicken breast was firm and packed with flavour. It was also tender and succulent, and did not contain any of the 'dryness' that I would usually expect. The mash, burnt corn, and hazelnuts weren't just there for plating purposely but they created a plethora of textures - soft, wet, crunchy - accentuating the flavours of the chicken. "Not just a pretty face" indeed (Tan, 2016). If you've been here before, you gotta try the new menu; if you haven't been here before, this is definitely worth your first trip to the back-end of Balestier. -

This dish of squid ink rice with mentaiko sauce, sous vide egg, and flank steak (for dinner, lunch is fried chicken) is absolutely delectable. The complexity and umami flavours explode with each bite. Although the mentaiko sauce looks little, it was creamy and packed a punch. The texture of the sous vide egg was extremely viscous and gave the rice a lot more 'weight' in texture and taste. The flank beef steak was firm and packed with its juices and was not too chewy nor beefy, done to a pink tenderness of medium rare which I requested for. An absolute wonder of a dish, I am sold. This is like paying cafe food prices for fine dining cuisine; could totally see this dish come out from a hotel restaurant. Amazing. #burpproved 👍🏻 -

With the lovely array of colours, this simple paella dish is not only pleasing on the eye but also on the palette. Paella was nicely cooked in rich seafood broth, paired with the beautiful pieces of grilled octopi which were soft and tender. The pomegranates gave the dish a dash of sweetness that was refreshing. -

My favourite dish of the day - really love the light flavours in this dish. The sesame dressing tickles your palette, while the burnt corn offers a hint of crunch and sweetness, together with the springy QQ udon noodles that looked more like 'Jap linguine' to me rather than the standard fat and round ones you'd usually get. Salmon was excellent, cooked to the right done-ness; only issue was that the piece was slightly small. -
Check out other new items like the Buckfin Crab and Soba, and their Grilled Spanish Octopus and Paella!

This has got to be my favourite dish of the lot. The baked pot of goodness is first filled with garlic panko breadcrumbs, bacon bits, 2 free range poached eggs, truffled potato foam, and topped with a sprinkle of breadcrumbs and torched parmesan. The description doesn't sound like much but the flavour profiles for this dish is immaculate.
The intensity from the truffle potato foam was great as I liked the strong depth of truffle flavour. If taken altogether, you get the crisp from the breadcrumbs, the lightness from the potato foam, the creaminess of the poached eggs - all rolled into one. I just loved it. Will definitely have this when I am back.
This was a meal courtesy of @roose and hosted by the very enterprising and passionate @chinesewinegirl. Thanks @burpple for the invite!

The beef cheek was really tender, braised with Chianti and soaked with all of its flavour. As if that was not enough, the free range poached eggs gives you a rich and weighted egg flavour, together with an opportunity to capture some oozy #eggporn. In a display of something being more than the sum of its parts, the cayenne buttermilk complemented extremely well with the crispy potato pancakes.
A good standard dish that would leave you satisfied for brunch.

Easily one of the best versions of this dish around.
The waffle had a good balance of fluff and crisp, serving as a great base to the dish. The fried chicken thigh was simply amazing - texture wise it's crunchy and crispy on the outside yet so thick and tender on the inside. The maple syrup was not too sweet and did not drench the chicken but instead complemented it nicely.
Perhaps the thing that stood out the most was a bit of balsamic sauce (not sure if it's vinegar cause it isn't that sour) that was underneath the chicken, along with some bits of toasted almond slices. After hearing @chinesewinegirl talk about balancing of tastes, I think it's the acidity from the balsamic that helped to balance the sweetness from the maple syrup, lifting the dish to levels of gastronomical masterclass.
Maybe I'm exaggerating, but this is probably the best version of chicken and waffles I've had thus far (I've never tried the lazy Susan). I highly recommend that you try it and find out for yourselves. -

This is a brilliant appetizer. Standard popcorn chicken tenders, accompanied by bite-sized charcoal buns, resting on a bed of extremely tasty mentaiko mayo that was first burnt, aburi style. I'll definitely be back to try their Mentaiko Eggs Royale...

The sauce had the same texture and viscosity of egg yolk and was salty; didn't really taste like "salted egg", but more like "egg yolk" that was "salted". The cereal topping was a nice addition though, creating a ying-yang effect of sweet and salty flavours in the dish. Enjoyed it thoroughly, but the sauce got a bit too thick and gelat at the end, reminding me of the amount of cholesterol I was consuming.

P.S. If this same savory sauce is used inside the crossaint, I would give it a miss.

"I love eating. But I hate getting fat. I love eating. But I only want to eat the best. I love eating. But I'm reluctant to spend too much." The above are a few paradoxes that describe my love-hate relationship with food. Yet at the same time they define my principles for choosing the places which I love to eat: 1) Hearty 2) Tasty 3) Worthy (of my money)
