吃得满足 as we dig into bowls of Mie Babi, Ngo Hiang and Mailing Goreng.

Along the stretch of newly open cafes, this place made a refreshing change though it was opened two years back. Selling Indo-Chinese food, the interior was modern chic with neon lights and interesting paintings.

Shown here is their new Mie Keriting Babi Komplit Special ($9.88) which there’s Ayam version too. A bowl of springy indo mee covered with house speciality minced pork, charsiew, roast pork, fried wanton and vegetables. It also comes along with a bowl of wanton soup.

Dive into a spread of Yellow Croaker dishes @putien_sg. Marked by their radiant yellowfins, they are known for their tender and boneless texture.

Catch the exciting line-up of SEVEN dishes including their Signature 100-Second Stewed Yellow Croaker. Such as this new dish - Yellow Croaker in Sambal Sauce. The crispy fried dish is well-balanced with over ten kinds of spices including shrimp paste.

Still one of the best spot for clay pot dishes! Lau Wang Claypot is well-known for its Sesame Chicken (from $5.80/small), cooked in a special thick gravy and served in a clay pot.

Succulent boneless chicken made more fragrant with sesame oil, this is available in both Spicy and non-spicy. Remember to order a bowl of white rice!

Pipping hot claypot frog porridge 姜葱田鸡粥. Are you up for it?

@muikeesg claypot version is just excellent! Tender frog legs swimming in savoury-sweet dark soy sauce, the dish is blasted with ginger, spring onion and dried chilli. Remember to pair it with a bowl of Mui Kee’s silky smooth congee.

Other than the signature Lu Rou Fan, @eat3bowls Pasir Panjang outlet offer outlet exclusive dishes like Salted Crispy Chicken. Lightly battered and coated in chilli powder, the bite-sized chunks of chicken were tender and juicy. Grab a iced cold Milk Tea, and it seem to bring us back to the lively Taiwanese night markets!

Long wait time for this popular clay pot after Chinatown Complex, but shiok to have on a “wintery” night.

Pots and pots of clay pot prepared over a charcoal fire, it’s a sight to behold. Filled with chunks of juicy chicken, pork belly, lap cheong (Chinese sausage) and salted fish, drizzle dark soya sauce over before mix it well.

I like to leave my rice a bit longer so it gets more charred and crisp. How do you like yours?

There’s just something comforting about this Taiwanese dish even though it is simply made of braised pork belly over rice.

So we decided to grab a bowl, a new Taiwanese cafe along East Coast Road. The small bowl of Japanese pearl rice was heaped with tender braised meat, egg and picked vegetables. But it is on the pricey end and slightly lacking in flavour


Presented in a dome perfumed with applewood smoke, it was pretty impressive when the staff unveils the dish. The lightly battered black cod filets are coated in a sweet sauce and each bite was filled with that smokey fragrance.

Craving for salted egg chicken? For those in the east, there’s Jia Yuen Eating House which is specialised in salted egg dishes.

One of their signature will be the Creamy Salted Egg Yolk Rice. Bite-sized chicken toasted in savory-sweet salted egg yolk mixed with evaporated milk, it’s rich and decadent. But if the chicken were less starchy, it will be even better.

Rainy day calls for steamboat or bbq. Head down to chinatown food street as they have reopened with six NEW ala carte steamboat and bbq buffet concepts!

Since there’s 4 of us, we decided to go for two different option - Chinese BBQ 老东北烧烤 and Nabemono Shabu Shabu. Both have a selection of well-marinated meats, seafood and vegetables to choose from, plus free flow of cooked dishes. We were so stuffed after eating non-stop.

The 6 buffet concepts are priced from $19.90 to $23.90 nett per adult and $12.90 nett per child (aged 3 to 12), minimum 2 to dine. Else check out the ‘Always 99’ Promotion for awesome deals

Call for spicy numbing Mala Tang aka #麻辣烫.

Zhang Liang Mala Tang is another popular store from China though it opens quietly in our midst. Offering three soup base - Original Mala, Tomato and Mushroom - pick the ingredients you want in the soup and bring it to the counter for payment. The price is based on the weight of your bowl.

There’s a huge selection of ingredients to choose from though due to the current situation staff will pick the ingredients for you. Upon collection, there’s a sauce bar beside for you to add on sauce and garnishes.

P.S: Do expect long queue during lunch!

Hues of purple and shimmering silver, the 250 seater Beauty in the Pot is located beside Swensen’s and above Uniqlo within NEX.

For a limited time only, get to try their new seasonal Flaming Moutai Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth and unicorn themed ice cream!

An alternative to the brand’s signature Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth, Moutai adds a unique and savoury flavour to the broth. Available in single ($22++) or twin pots ($12++), there isn’t additional charges for this version.
