Generous portions of unfortunately rather dry shredded chicken, with little trace of the cilantro and lime that was purportedly in there. The smothering of melty cheese and dollop of queso fresca certainly helped a ways in making this palatable though.

Taste: 2.5/5

The reason why I avoid ordering non-fried seafood at casual eateries is because they aren’t usually fast moving items and there’s a higher chance its not as fresh as it could be. Case in point these crab and masa corn tacos, where the crab was super fishy to the point it was beyond redemption for me.

Taste: 2/5

Bland dumplings that seemed to suffer from freezer burn and an underseasoned chilli oil meant this dish was seriously lacking in flavour. Disappointing since this stall in Marine Parade Food Centre selling China cuisine looked popular and promising.

I felt the tom yum flavour and heat was too muted in the heavy cream sauce, which also overpowered the rather bland fish, mussels and prawns. This definitely has the potential to be good with a little tweaking though.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @dstarbistro for the hospitality!

In the past this was belly-filling fuel for the rickshaw pullers whom this dish is named after. They needed something cheap and energy-packed to power the back-breaking work they did and this fit the bill while being tasty to boot.

In the thick and umami-packed broth, there was some dried shrimp, vegetables and fishcake, as well as plenty of fried shallots. However, while the noodles proved to be very filling, they were unfortunately cooked to death - mushy and lacking any texture. Still, I'm glad I tried this heritage and hard-to-find dish.

Heartwarming and wholesome, particularly on the rainy day I was having it, if a little on the thin side. However, $13 for a tomato soup is a little too rich for my blood.

Adjust your expectations if you're an Eastie coming here for your bagel fix, as this newly opened "Korean Bagel" joint delivers neither on the Korean nor the bagel.

The very un-Korean Cowboy Bagel sees everything and the kitchen sink(except Korean ingredients) squashed between rather soft and uninspired bagel halves. You'd think having beef, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, gherkins, caramelised onion, tomato, guacamole and Mozzarella cheese would result in a textural and flavour sensation. Instead, this was a bland affair I had to force myself to chew through.

Several established sites reviewed this place and I came here based on those unfortunately uninformed articles. Very disappointing.

What is this? A dumpling for ants? The tiniest wantons I’ve ever seen , hidden by a useless stalk of Chinese parsley that I half suspect was used to partially obscure the fact that the portion was so small. One Two Sucks continuously baffles me with its popularity.

Standards seem to have dropped since the last time I paid a visit, for this carrot cake wasn’t fried and tasted quite dense. The saving grace was the punchy chilli sauce which I used for everything else we ordered.

A little stodgy but otherwise flavourful yam cake that works as a filling and affordable breakfast or lunch option.

The real stars here are the plentiful, ultra crispy nuggets of battered fish. The gravy was too thin and bland for my liking and the nondescript chilli as well as stingy sprinkling of coriander made no difference either. Where other places give you pork belly and ngoh hiang as well, this popular stall in Tampines Round Market doesn’t seem to. I haven’t had a better lor mee than Fu Chun at Eunos Crescent Food Centre yet.

For an establishment run by Thais, I expected a better green curry. It was watery, lacked aromatics and weirdly had broccoli in place of baby eggplants. The chicken was measly and tough too. I guess this is passable for coffeeshop fare. Sort of.
