The home of taste that goes light on your tastebud accompanied with the earthy fragrance from the lotus leaf and the savoriness from the mei cai setting a contrast against the sweet fresh meaty pomfret. It will go well with their Blue Pea Mushroom Rice steamed in Bamboo.

Every single dish from Good Time Eat Drink has a local (peranakan) twist to it. .

Their curry chicken with charcoal 油条 is superb which comes with a big meaty thigh, and generous portion of chunky potatoes. Even the gravy lingers with coconut fragrance. 油条 on the other hand lack the airiness and crispness. .

Don’t miss out the fermented fried pork belly which is not at all greasy but addictive; sambal winged bean with pork floss which had an interesting texture and hint of spiciness to it and the bold combination of local flavors to the classic carbonara which replaces the traditional pasta with mee pok and topped with bacon bits and mushroom slices too! The dish was creamy yet at the same time surprisingly light. .

Will probably be back to try their Sambal Grilled Fish!

It’s value for money! 1/2 a chicken which give you the flexibility to mix between 2 type of chicken - roast and Hainanese white which I thought it was quite good that you get the best of both world for just $19? Portion is almost as good as 1 whole chicken for some other place. But texture of chicken wise was not as smooth and tender as some of the better ones which I find it a bit disappointing. The breast portion was a bit dry and rough and the thigh portion could be done smoother and softer. But minimally the chilli and ginger sauce was pretty good.

Hock Lam Beef Noodles is indeed worth raving for! I like the way they allow customization for their noodle. Opted for the herbal soup option. Expected something lighter but to my surprise it came in a thick herbal broth which was a pleasant surprise. Liked how flavorful the broth was filled with the aroma of different Chinese herbs. Each beef slice was so tenderly good and each meat ball was so firm and bouncy. Every sip of soup will definitely warm you up on a cold rainy day!

Well known zichar place for its Big Prawn Hor Fun, but we decided to be a little bit more adventurous and went for the soup version which was recommended too! First look at its dark red soup base felt like it was spicy and it has some resemblance of Assam laksa. But after tasting it, nothing taste like Assam laksa, it's like Prawn soup with a hint of spiciness. Not something that I would highly rave about. But the big Prawn was rather satisfying with its meatiness and freshness.

Where to go when you're craving for a hot piping mee sua? You can check out Seng Kee in Bedok! It specializes in Black Chicken Herbal Soup and Pig Organs Mee Sua. But don't be mistaken! It's actually a tze char stall which serves other pretty good dishes at cheap affordable prices and at decently big portions!

So back to the Pig Organs Mee Sua, what's so nice about them? First is the herbal soup taste, pretty lightly flavored with some Chinese herbs. Nothing much at the starts, but as you sip in more, the flavor gets there! Second is the sliced thinly, no odor and not overcooked pig organs and meesua! Really warms up your stomach into the night.

Jiu Gong Ge Mala Seafood Pot for 2 at $56/58++! Can't really remember the price though! That aside, I was greatly overwhelmed by the variety, portion and freshness of the seafood served! There's like prawns, scallops, clams, oyster + corn, quail egg, cabbage, tang hoon and Maggie mee! Seafood was plump, sweet and succulent while the veggies were happily soaking up the essence of the seafood mala soup. On the hind sight, it will definitely be better if the soup was more spicy though we already requested for one of the higher levels 😂

One of the newest addition to the Asia square's food scene. Technology savvy food stall that takes your order and collect your money all via one ordering machine. There's a little hush and buzz over the ordering process, and I guess it will probably take some time to smoothen the whole procedures. Nevertheless, serving fresh marinated mackerel fish in different forms and in different soup base is worth all the buzzing. The slices of fish has a sweet taste to it and the tom yum base is intriguing hot to your taste buds. Complete your meal with a 680ml can of drink (yes you heard me right! And the packaging is vibrantly colored too) and a appetizer. Another lunch option worth considering but they do have limited seating capacity.

Have you checked out Yum Cha's Mother's Day special menu? Sink your teeth into this crusty almond soft curd tart brimming with strong almond flavor which can be served warm or cold! A little on the sweeter side though.

Missing 台湾便当? At Woo Ricebox you can find back the similar taste and flavors of it. Topped with a spicy chicken meat, braised egg and pickled vegetables on a hearty bowl of rice, not only is it tasty but also filled with flavors of Taiwan.

Interesting hotpot concept at fu lin men dou lao. But this sparkling dessert with gold beats it all. Intriguing texture and taste to palette. Glutinous rice that provides the chewy texture to the dessert and pineapple bites that brings about abundance of sweetness. Good dessert to end off the meal on a real sweet note!

Immerse and drown yourself in this thick gravy brimming with Assam spices and flavors that arouses and wake your palette with its intriguing tingling sourish and piquant taste. The grouper used were fresh and sweet too. Can't help asking for more!
