Great cafe option to do work as it has WiFi and power although a bit noisy till around 3 pm. Coffee (not pictured) supposedly from Papa pahleta but was kinda flat (also not sure why but my cuppa had no latte art, although it was present for the matcha latte my friend had earlier. Maybe the barista left for the day). Separately, many thanks to @arieszx93 for the ride! 5* parallel parking, relatively safe, recommended driver 👩‍✈️ #sgfoodie #sgfood #sgcafehopping #sgcafe #cafe #toast #toastie #grilledcheesesandwich #sandwich #mushroom #burpple

Since my exercise class cancelled I instead went to pig out with congee, Lo Mai Kai and crystal dumplings (total damage for all food in photo was $15), which probably was overkill for 2pax. Lo Mai Kai was recommended as an unusual offering as it is made in house and the rice didn't seem to be the normal sticky glutinous variety. Crystal dumplings were recommended by the stall but I didn't really like the sourness of the sauce. Next time will just stick to the congee which was so smooth it was criminal (bonus that it was not salty too). Fun fact: the friendly owner was the head chef at mouth restaurant before he decided to open up a hawker stall selling his Cantonese fare.

Note: Stall usually runs out during lunch (1pm). #sgfood #sghawker #sgfoodie #congee #lomaikai #porridge #cantonese #breakfast #singaporeeats #singaporefood #burpple

Unfortunately I was very underwhelmed. Although the lobster portion was adequate, the quality of the meat was severely lacking. You pay for what you get and I guess for some things you just go big or go home. Mealpal set comes with lemonade (really iced lemon tea). Expect a wait as I had to wait 15 minutes plus for mine.

At a reasonable 60c per piece, the chicken and mutton satay was well proportioned with a generous amount of meat. I think this is the only satay I have encountered that was so elaborately flavoured with spices (I think I spied lemongrass bits). #sgfoodie #sgfood #sghawker #hawkerfood #satay #singaporefood #singaporeeats #burpple

Got the Deluxe Bowl ($8), which I think is exactly like the regular bowl ($6/7) except with some additional ingredients. The soup was super unami although the noodles could do with more of a springy bite to them. Overall a good but pricey bowl of noodles. The indoor seating has unenclosed aircon was kinda cramped.

This must be the first time I'm trying pure buah keluak paste stuffed in the nuts and indeed it's an acquired taste. Might opt for the less buah keluaky chicken option the next time.

Won't be my go-to at GM hawker centre but worth trying once for the novelty.

Our visit started with a hiccup as we had to wait 30min to be seated reservation notwithstanding. The head server was gracious enough to offer us an appetiser, the satay ($14++) on the house and we were more than placated. Imagine our surprise when he whipped out the Kueh Beng Kah ($9++) at the end after we had already devoured the Beef Rendang ($23++, super sedap and melt in mouth tenderness), Dry Laksa ($22++, second time having this and while a good interpretation the prawns were a tad too firm this time round) and Roti Jala with Gula Melaka and Banana sauce($10++). Effectively 3 pax worth of food for 2 tiny girls! Overall I left with a very full stomach and a hope for service standards in Singapore.

Attended a "live cooking demo" (more of a live eating demo, but not complaining because it was free) by Neil Perry from Sydney's Rockpool. Had a froyo chocolate concoction ($8) by the Taiwanese chef from Sessions, a restaurant in RWS. Dinner menu was pretty pricey for the portion size ($15/20 per dish). Tried the Baked Lamb with Peppermint Black Pepper Sauce from Sam Leong and a very Instagram resistant Langoustine Albufeira, coffee (with katsuobushi) by Chef Richard van Oostenbrugge. *
Can't say the whole event really reflected it's namesake but a fun weekend diversion nonetheless. *

All mains come with two sides. Had the mac and cheese and the healthyish mayo-free coleslaw. It was pretty quiet during lunch so great if you are struggling to find an eating spot during peak lunch hour in CBD.

Got the iced hojicha matcha latte ($5.8) which had a nice balance to the flavours. The matcha azuki cake ($7.5) was rather average, lacked any matcha punch.
