Fu Lin Tou Fu Yuan. They’ve been around for awhile now even opened a few branches, each claiming they’re the ‘original’, but this till today still remains the best tasting one.
I’m particularly careful when having Yong Tau Foo as most of YTF ingredients contain fish paste or bean by products which tend to turn sour if left out for too long. I’ve never had to worry about that here; they refresh their items regularly and everything looks fresh.

If you ordered too much (like we did), they’ll usually separate the crispy items from the rest and fill that plate with less meat gravy so it doesn’t turn soggy too quickly.
Favourites are definitely the crispy 斋鹅 and jumbo Cheese Sausage.

It’s sandwiched with not one, but two slices of cheese and that pretty much made my day. Im a strong believer that any burger should be served with two slices of cheese; extra cheese always makes an impact!

Also I love both @brawn_and_brains outlets, but there’s something about the spaciousness of this one that gives it a little more edge.

Simple yet executed with precision. We chose to have this variation with their handmade pasta; served with a good chewy bite, we loved how well seasoned and coated each piece was, perfumed by the occasional bite into a cracked black pepper.
Also, the only item I’ll reorder if we dined here again.

Crushing on the looks of this converted Colonial building with its huge double doors, high ceiling, deep teal-coloured walls completed with gold and bronze furnishings. Elegant and inviting without being overbearing.
Meet Chef @alysiareynechan’s recommendation (also right now, my favourite dish on the menu), the super juicy Roasted Hokkaido Pork Loin with Vanilla Cauliflower Purée, Raisin & Pinenut Agrodolce and a Fennel Nashi Pear Salad.
At first I was skeptical on the addition of vanilla to the purée, but it added an extra dimension of creaminess to the dish, especially when you have it with the raisins and vinegary mustard seeds. Damn, that’s delicious.
Can’t wait to be back!
Only available during dinner.

They have a relatively aged starter resulting in more sour tasting breads, although, they do compliment really well with their open-faced toast/sandwich combinations (think Meaty Mushrooms, 3-Cheese, Avocado Bawang).
Favourite Posh Toast was this sweet variation with their housemade Mascarpone, Walnuts, Bee Pollen and Black Sea Salt. I’ve always preferred more spreads, so I wished there was a thicker schmear of Mascarpone that I could sweep up with that beauty of a crust though.

Heres one of my favourite dishes at @oliviarestaurant_sg.

Octopus, Crispy Pork Belly, Potato Foam
Dig deep for those sweet caramelized onions.
So. Damned. Good.
Fantastic date night spot or a place catch up with your closest friends over legitimate Spanish soul food.

I’d have this on a hot day, rainy day, all day! I had this 3 times last week 🤤
Super tender braised pork with plenty of gelatinous cartilage on top of slightly chewy rice noodles and broth made from steeping fish bones, providing it with flavour, depth and they even incorporated some orange peel to brighten the broth and remove any unwanted stale fishy flavour. Turn up the heat with their dried chili oil provided on the side of every table.
Tsui Wah is also known for only seating a table when all parties have arrived, otherwise you’ll have to wait in line till that always on-my-way-friend shows up. You’ve been warned.

Plate didn’t need to be washed when I was done with it. 🤤
One of my favourite go-tos for spectacularly executed Classic French food.

Finally made my way there (weekday 3pm, no queue yesss!), ordered the soup version despite the hot weather, but was still souper satisfied. Their meat+veg is to noodle ratio is quite literally 1:1 and, for 4.3bucks a bowl, that’s a real steal.
At L32, their eggs are cracked into your bowl before they ladle piping hot soup over (unlike most other joints who boil their eggs together with the soup) which results in an onsen-type egg white and very runny yolk. Thoroughly enjoyed the thickeness of their noodles, and the simple but tasty white pepper seasoning on their lean meats.
I’d say, as good as my favourite BanMian joint in Toa Payoh Blk 186. Can’t wait to come back for the dry version!

Quite literally, love at first bite.
They, are the OGs behind franchised brand: 1A Crispy Curry Puff. Generous on the chicken & potato filling, encased in a super flakey shortcrust pastry handmade by grannies in their back kitchen. I love how they control the quality of these puffs by frying only what’s enough for their hotbox showcase at the entrance of the shop, then occasionally do top ups so everything is fresh and piping hot. This little family run business has been around for three decades and my stomach hopes, many more to come.
PS: Sesame Balls are super good too.

Take this Yuzu Shio Ramen, it’s broth is slightly smokey, giving it this bacon flavour yet remains (never thought I’d use this word on a bowl of ramen), surprisingly refreshing!
Don’t be daunted by the queues you see, we waited 15 minutes for a table despite having more than ten people on line in front of us.

They make a Potato Mille Feuille (layers of sliced potatoes stacked together) then sliced lengthwise and fried; giving it its crisp rigidity which allows diners to enjoy this tapas by picking it up with their fingers. It’s more fun and casual that way!
Finished with dollops of spiced tomato purée and creamy aioli, every mouthful was a compliment to the one before. Needless to say, we ordered seconds.
