Some days calls for casual and comfort. There ain't much else that'd beat these franchised convenient junk food to your bellies.

The all new ShackMeister with his glorious crown of fried shallots and creamy cheese sauce.. Rich and heavy combination but it totally works, definitely up my alley!

Newly opened within Paya Lebar Quarter, popular South Korean fast-food chain has finally hit our shores.
Complete with an alfresco dining area adjacent to the outdoor water features, despite the recent raging hot weather, it was a surprisingly enjoyable dining experience for us, especially with the occasional breeze in the late evening.
Having tasted three of their burgers, the unanimous favourite was easily their signature Mom’s Thigh Burger (5.7bucks or get the meal for 6.8bucks from now till 31October19), complete with a thick Fried Chicken Thigh Patty, housemade Sweet Garlic Mayo, lettuce, pickles sandwiched between lightly toasted buns. Cajun fries were great!
If you prefer heavier flavours and more-salt-on-everything like me, I’ll suggest the Cheese Bacon Burger (7bucks) which is essentially Mom’s Thigh Burger with extra Bacon strips and that goopy nacho cheese sauce you’ll find at Cinemas.
On the whole, definitely tilting the gourmet scale for a fast-food chain but I’ll suggest to give it a couple more months before making a visit for them to refine their processes and also so that you won’t have to wait 30minutes for a quick service joint.


The old school soda-piah with ya kun's signature Kaya spread and a wedge of butter. Sweet, salty, creaminess in a simple little bundle. And yes, though I know I can probably make this on my own for less than half the price, but, take my mooooney!


Been hitting this dessert joint lately and I thought it's about time this place has got his fair share of publicity on social media. Soft curds of grass jelly, aloe vera pearl jellies, black sugar konjac, tapioca nuggets (sweet potato and yam) served with a little creamer on the side. It's just textures when you eat everything together, but it makes you feel so contented (especially in the heat). They only do takeaways which works fine with me, so I get to enjoy it in the comforts of my own home. And mind you, I think 2bucks is a real steal!

Revisiting my high-school all time favourite grilled chicken joint. Extremely tender, peppery chicken steaks with your choice of two sides. Their mashed potatoes and gravy are super-comfort-fat-kid-food. If I may say so myself, they've improved their recipes since I last dined (more than 4 years ago). 9.9bucks/chargrilled chicken + 2 sides
