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.


Alfresco dining with craft beer, the way to chill after work or during weekends! Mischief Grilled Platter ($168) is a platter that’s great for a big group as they serve crackling pork belly, wagyu beef brisket, cajun spiced spring chicken, grilled lamb merguez sausage, slow-cooked pork ribs and bone in ribeye. But I personally prefer the Prawn Paste Chicken Wings ($16) and Luncheon Meat Fries ($10) served with sriracha mayo, which is perfect with an ice cold beer.

Plus they had extended the 1 for 1 deals on Mains/Burgers/Grills (from Sunday to Thursday) until the the the end of April 2018. To enjoy the promo remember to make reservations via https://mischief.sg/thechosenones


Here's another glimpse at what @donhosg offer for brunch during weekends. From Potato Rosti to Pan Baked Eggs and healthier option like Avocado Bruschetta, we all favoured different dishes. I kinda like The Don Ho ($18), though sinful I just can't resist the combination of candied maple bacon and grilled pineapple. Not to forget, they serve those irresistible Crispy Eggplant ($12) drench in spicy fragrant sauce for brunch too!


Surrounded by lush foliage, The Halia provides a great view of Ginger Garden, Singapore Botanic Gardens which it's named after.

Here you'll be able to try several dishes that include ginger such as Lemongrass & Ginger Prawn Salad. Garden-fresh vegetable, succulent prawns, fresh mango with tomato salsa and abundance of glass noodles, this refreshing dish uses ginger flower dressing!


Ushering in the Year of Rooster. A Japanese twist on traditional Lou Hei as Miam Miam introduce Tower of Wealth. Comprises a medley of jellyfish, hotate, wakame, chuka kurage, smoked salmon and more, the joyful jumble are accented by refreshing ume sauce. Available for both dine in and takeaway via @deliveroo_sg @foodpandasg


Mentaiko King Crab Aglio Olio ($20.90), an interesting take on this dish as they use Alaskan King Crab meat smeared with cod roe mayo atop aglio olio. For the adventurous, you can try the squid ink version.

Love the flavourful rice in Glazed Teriyaki Donburi ($14.90) though we felt chicken chunks were slightly dry that day. And we gotten to tried the savoury soufflé, Soufflé De Nuage ($16.90). Fluffy eggy soufflé atop of tomato fried rice mixed with chicken, ham and mushroom.


A bit of sweetness can drown out a whole load of bitterness. So I’m always having sweets 🧁🍧🍡
