They say it’s cheaper than BKK’s? I really love the golden butter sauce! Toasted brioche goes soooo well! But I think they could go easy on using salt for the fries and salad!

5 of us shared this which sets us back about S$250. It’s my first time having such huge lobster - the body meat is like super large prawn meat, the pincers are like scallop meat, and the legs are like crab meat. Hallelujah. Thank you for the wonderful meal, Boston Lobster. And kudos to the staff who are all well-trained and served us well. Was the lady who recommended this Big Boy called Elaine already?

$26++ No bloody cockles but there’s Slipper Lobster (aka hei-po, aka crayfish)!! Not too spicy, laksa gravy complements well with the beansprouts interwoven rice noodles (beehoon) and I just love laksa as a Malayan dish no matter! Recommended place to dine in Tanjong Pagar and I must say the service had improved a lot👍🏼!

Each dish has a specific timing for cooking! We burnt our collagen soup and had to refill at $5++, good thing is we could takeaway the soup if we like and make yummy noodles with it back home! Anyways, lunch experience was quite not up to standard; HDL still trumps the hotpot industry! Must-orders: fried toufu skin, and fish cakes!

$45. 3 pax sharing this should be quite enough but otherwise not very filling. For the price, guess it’s still okay. Much better mookatas available in Golden Mile.

$8++. I recall the best crab cakes I had was from Roosevelt in Outram which since had closed down. This version mixed with some tangy mango/pineapple purée isn’t that bad! Cake’s crispy, and crab filling is wholesome. Not too shabby!

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Flavourful yet not too salty! Highly recommended to eat with the sambal!

Walking into this non-air-conditioned place (but cooled by a “big ass fan”) during lunch, I see 3 stalls - western, thai and Indian - that resembles a mini canteen. Food prices are quite ex considering the food really tastes like canteen food; I prefer Al-Azhar’s food! Perhaps this is really just a place for beer...

$18. Fish is thick and juicy, unlike this usual heavily-battered dory fillets. The menu doesn’t specify what fish did they use, but this is really hearty and wholesome. Love the sweet potato fries! All I can say is Fuego serves up really large portions at value prices! Worth it!

$29 for a double portion. The stew is sweet and really can taste the pork - somehow reminds me of very thick Bak Kut Teh. I would have preferred something nice to cleanse the palate, but the service here in this Westgate branch is a little too slow...

Saw this on Burpple Beyond and decided to come here, but only realise this is a social enterprise when we arrive! A decent meal, soft shell crab only, tasty garlicky ketchup as chili sauce. Please skip the vongole as it’s quite bland. Just that perhaps it’s all in the mind; a little more patience is required here ◡̈ and probably I shouldn’t have scheduled another appointment after this...

$7 for Double Fish (fried + boiled), Fish Roe and extra bitter gourd! I usually dislike bitter gourd and it’s usually either bitter gourd omelette or this, fish soup, that makes better gourd more palatable! Soup is slightly salty, I wish they could cut down on the mirin and add more caramelised fried egg shreds. Overall still a very good dish and fresh fish roe adds brownie points!
