Open for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays, it’s a posh yet cosy spot for executive lunch or meetings. Other than ala carte, there’s a 3-course set ($45) and a 4-course set ($55).

Wagyu Tartare, Cold Angel Pasta and Pork Jowl can be found on the dinner menu, but they do have a lunch-only items such as Sandos and Koji Confit Duck Leg.

An all-time classic, Egg Benedict is one of the dishes that can be commonly found in brunch menu.

SYIP has recently launched the Uni Egg Royale ($28), an interesting take on this breakfast favourite. Sourdough spread with guacamole and prosciutto (thinly sliced Italian dry-cured ham), topped with two perfectly done poached eggs. Instead of the usual, smothered it with a decadent uni hollandaise and finish with more uni.

Handmade ebiko prawn paste that very Q along with huge prawn dumplings and fresh prawns, slurp the flavourful Japanese inspired Shrimp broth with those silky Chinese la mian.

Speciality Japanese shrimp ramen store, Le Shrimp has a new dish! From now till 31 Mar 2022, dropped by to try their mouthwatering Ma Po Tofu with Minced Shrimp Ramen.

Cubes of tofu coated in an aromatic and spicy sauce, the bowl of signature ramen are covered with fried beancurd crisp, Sichuan pickled diced vegetables and QQ minced shrimp. The sweetness from the shrimp balanced the mala tofu. Mala level was just nice for me, though those who love it hot can ask for spicier.

Recommend to devour the dish while having a bowl of the thick Red Garoupa with Preserved Vegetable in Tonkotsu Broth ($19.90).

Cold Rendang Custard, Chye Poh Fries, Seafood Laksa and Orange Pork Ribs. These are the few dishes which I enjoyed at SLAKE. With a more centralised location (previously at Bedok), I will frequent it more.

Focusing on contemporary SEA cuisine and known for the vibrant flavours, you’ll be in for a treat. After trying their Chye Poh Fries ($12), I can’t look at them the same way. Topped with crispy chye poh and aged black vinegar mayo, this is one dish I can’t stop reaching for.

Seafood Laksa Linguine ($22), generously filled with prawns, mussels, clams, taupok and onsen egg is another recommended dish. Generous rempah with sauce clinging to each strand of pasta, we clean this in no time. But if you’re not a fan of pasta, the hearty Slake Nasi Kerabu ($19) aka Brown Rice Salad is a flavourful alternative.

P.S: if you’re up for it, they serve Battered Pig Ears too!

No, dine in? It’s alright as we have @mammameveryday bringing affordable local food to homes~ The casual café is a concept created by Ponggol Nasi Lemak and Chef-Owner of @venuebysebastian at OUE Downtown Gallery.

The affordable rice bowls from @mammameveryday comes with seasonal vegetables and egg/tofu dish of the day.
* Chef Sebastian's Signature Spice-Crusted Chicken Leg ($8.50), juicy chicken leg crusted with a unique blend of house-made spices and served with a side of pickled cucumber.
* Chef Sebastian's Signature 100-hour Duck Confit ($11.50). After seeing raving reviews online, I can see why. The duck is marinated in 10 over types of herbs and spices for 2 days before it is slow-cooked for 24 hours. Best to pair it with the piquant green sambal.
* Slow-roasted Norwegian Salmon Specialty ($9.50)
* Signature Minced Chicken with Basil and Egg Tofu ($5.90)

For those who work around the CBD area, there’s an affordable Indo-western cafe you can head to.

Situated at the corner of Hong Kong Street, @fangkocoffee is known for their Spicy Smashed Chimken (from $7). But for non-spicy food person like me, it is safer to go for their Dirty Chimken ($10), which comes with tofu, tempeh and keropok.

For those who work around the CBD area, there’s an affordable Indo-western cafe you can head to.

Situated at the corner of Hong Kong Street, @fangkocoffee is known for their Spicy Smashed Chimken (from $7) with blue-pea flower rice. Smashed chicken aka ayam penyet, is chopped chicken fried in homemade spicy sambal. Be wary though as the spicy level goes from Level 1-12.

We had Level 1 which was too spicy for me as I hurriedly drank their new Affogato to get rid of the 🔥 But my friends felt they can go for Level 4-5 the next time they are back.

Looking for an affordable hotpot place? Well, there’s one in the heart of town!

@gorogorosg offers all-you-can-eat dishes of up to 70+ varieties serve ala minute. Offering different cut of meats, meat balls and even cooked side dishes such as Korean Fried Chicken Wings and Tteokbokki. From just $16.90++ per adult (on weekdays), this is value-for-money.

Seven soup bases to choose from, such as everyone’s favourite Beauty Collagen Soup, Singapore’s Pepper Bak Ku Teh, as well as Mala Soup and Tomato Soup.

Specially crafted menu such Secret Ingredient Noodle Soup ($23) that is served with utterly cute Po and Mei Mei mantous. Or the Night Fury Steak Rice ($18.50) which is made of nutritious black rice and hamburg steak. Drinks and dessert are interesting though there’s definitely room for improvement.

Expect the popular Korean "jjamppong" (spicy seafood noodle dish) to be re-invented by having flavours from around the world.

Traditionalists can still satisfy their jjamppong craving by ordering the spicy Cha Ppong ($15.80) filled with mussels, squid, prawns and quail eggs. Come in two level of spiciness, it was hard for me to finish on own especially I can’t take spicy food. Or slurp up Vongole Ppong ($16.80) whereby the clam broth is spiked with white wine and garlic. Springy noodles, rich clam broth with a light spicy kick, the soupy dish was different in a good way.

Specialising in Japanese and Italian fusion, it’s exciting to see what the restaurant and bar has to offer.

Risotto Lobster Singapore, buttered risotto simmered in lobster broth with fresh lobster. Sumptuous creamy pasta and chunks of fresh lobster meat covered in decadent sauce before dusting it with parmesan cheese, it was a well executed dish.

Sipping a glass of refreshing Sake Cucumber ($22) made of cucumber, brown sugar, lychee juice, fresh ginger slices & Kiku-Masamune Sake. It’s easy to forget it’s Monday.
