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.

Predominantly peppery notes from the sauce helped mask the slightly frozen taste of the seafood, but this was satisfactory overall, with lots of fishcake, prawns and fish slices tangled between the slippery noodles.

Everytime I feel it’s a good idea to go to P.S. Cafe(because chilled out ambience – which is the only thing it’s got going for it really), I immediately regret it after the fact. Their brunch items are consistently underseasoned, with the eggs, sausage and salad suffering from a dire lack of any taste whatsoever. Add to that miniscule portions for the giant price tag and it’s guaranteed to put me off till 6 months down the road when I’ve forgotten the distasteful experience and repeat the cycle of self-inflicted sadness again.

This long-running cafe run by a gregarious Cantonese granny is more well-known for its wanton mee than its fried rice, so I thought I’d try the latter. Sadly it’s nothing to shout about and the portion wasn’t very filling either.

Another staple on Babasan’s $10 set lunch menu is their Buah Keluak pasta. The flavour of the nut could have been more prominent and the sauce more generous, but otherwise this is a viable tummy filler for lunch with lots of meat. Spice it up with Babasan’s tongue burning belacan(so strong you can smell it from a distance).

This is a decent bowl of noodles but not worth the long wait during weekend breakfast hours. Lard, chilli and vinegar tossed noodles are accompanied by a smattering of minced pork, fish cake slices, fish ball, fish dumpling and a rather plump prawn. It did the job but little else.

If I’m to be honest, the food at Marco Pierre White’s Singapore outpost is underwhelmingly average at best. This steak tartare was bordering on too sweet and salty, and the greasy chips weren’t helping either. Many of the other dishes we tried also fell short of the mark. In short, if I’m paying a premium, I expect commensurate quality.

This stall’s claim to fame is it’s 5 levels of spiciness. I went for the lowest level and it was already mildly spicy, so I can only imagine the burning depths of level 5 especially since it comes with chilli padi. Other than that this wanton mee didn’t have much else going for it. While the wantons were filled with well-seasoned clumps of pork, the noodles lacked any sesame oil and soy sauce (or any sauce for that matter), and the char siew was too thinly sliced and dry. The crispy lard tasted extremely stale and off-putting too.
