Big Bern’s, previously known as Botak Jones, is a food truck operating in Timbre+ serving western cuisine such as their iconic grilled Cajun Chicken with two sides at only $6.90, a price that’s almost unimaginable in our current economy. If you are feeling hungry, you can even opt for the Regular portion as mine is only the downsized one but it’s already very filling with the massive amount of Cajun spiced fries (something that got them really famous back then) and a side of coleslaw. Overall, it was decent and comes with a hearty portion, hence, do not expect the flavours to be mind blowing when you are only paying less than $10 for that amount of food.

Whether you prefer peanut or black sesame, here at Hougang Muah Chee, you can get half of each and these will all be devoured within minutes. Though this might seem like an easy-to-make snack, it is not that easy at all and in fact quite labour intensive if you observe the preparation process. Each ball of muah chee (made from glutinous rice) is pinched to proportionate size, dipped in a shallot oil mixture before being rolled into either the grounded peanut or black sesame. The balance of sweet and savoury is indeed an enjoyable treat. if you are around the area, do drop by and give these a try as I have heard that there will not be anyone taking over the stall once the original owners decide to call it a day. Additionally, the muah chee here is not the regular run-off-the-mill kind and hence, it might cost slightly more than what you would normally pay for if you get it elsewhere. However, the passion and hard work that goes into making these will more than make up for the price difference.

One such bakery is Sing Hon Loong, who used to supply breads to Ya Kun but I have heard that they have since switched to a new supplier. Nonetheless, you still have to make a trip down nostalgic lane and pay a visit to Sing Hon Loong, get a bag of their sliced white bread with margarine and kaya spread. The texture of the bread is amazingly soft and chewy, unlike other white breads around which is dry and sad.

The Peach Green Tea ($7.50) is a good example of a refreshing brewed tea with a fruity aroma and bittersweet flavour while the Yuzu Soy Glazed Sweet Potatoes ($6.50) makes a perfect pairing as a snacking plate.

In celebration of Singapore’s National Day, this dessert was created to commemorate this special landmark and it comes with a crispy puff pastry filled with real durian and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The durian filling itself is a true representation of the nation’s love of the king of fruits while the crispy pastry gives it a nice contrasting texture of the overall dessert.

For the past few visits, the Signature Dark Chocolate Cake ($8) has been my go-to order and I personally feel that this has got to be one of the better chocolate cakes around. The layers of fudge and sponge are just a sight to behold and as you slowly enjoy this decadent treat, you will get to taste the bittersweet chocolatey flavour with the right amount of richness that will not make you surfeited after finishing it.

When I think of authentic Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, @8koreanbbq will always be one of them that pops up in my mind. Hence, on National Day night when everyone was gluing their eyes on the television screen waiting for the Red Lions, singing along to the National Day songs or camping at some vantage point to catch a glimpse of the fireworks, I was out experiencing my own fireworks’ moment at 8 Korean BBQ.

If you have been to 8 Korean BBQ, you will definitely not miss out ordering their Mangalitza pork set. Besides the 4 or 8 Colours Set, you can also get the Flower Pork Set ($68), which comes with flower pork belly, pork neck steak and pork jowl, the three best parts that you could have asked for from the Mangalitza Hog. Each set also comes with kimchi, bean sprouts and a seafood bean paste stew for 2-3 pax. You would have noticed that both the kimchi and bean sprouts are placed on the grill pan and the plate is tilted slightly to allow all the oily goodness from grilling the meat to flow down to the kimchi and bean sprouts to further enhance the flavours. Oh and did I mention that all the grilling is done by the kind staff so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your saäm.

What started as a Peranakan kueh, the ondeh ondeh, has now evolved into a icy cold dessert proudly served at Moosh Softserve. The Ondeh Ondeh ($4.50) has been deconstructed into a parfait from the original form, with a milk softserve forming the base and a generous drizzle of pandan was added to it. Both desiccated coconut and toasted coconut bits were added as a finishing touch. Perhaps, what was missing in this softserve and one of the key ingredients of making ondeh ondeh would be the gula melaka. Right now, it was falling short of that but if palm sugar was added to it, it would transform into a better representation of the kueh.

Back at Tino’s, they have created this Mao Shan Wang pizza ($21.90), marrying the durian fruit with a cheesy pizza base, a representation of how two supposedly food that don’t mash together, come together as one. Just like in Singapore, the two camps of people are divided on a love-hate relationship for durian but come tomorrow, the country is united as one People, one nation, one Singapore.

Available in both Napoletana (9 inch thick crust) and Romena (12 inch thin crust), the freshly hand-tossed Truffle Salmonrita Pizza is a unique twist to your traditional pizzas. When at it, do also order the Peanut Butter Fries ($5.90), a combination of peanut butter and beef bacon bits on fries that might raise a couple of eyebrows in the beginning but it will eventually be an appetizer that everyone will want a piece of.

Such as at Twenty Grammes where the focus on ice cream, waffles and cakes have been a mainstay since the beginning. Zooming in to their Soft Serve on Waffle ($14), you can now opt for three soft serve flavours and the one that speaks out to me the most has got to be the houjicha. Though it was refreshing and goes well with the Belgium waffle, I would have wished for a stronger tea flavour and aroma from the soft serve. Twenty Grammes is also a participating merchant under the Burpple Beyond premium membership and you can enjoy 1 for 1 waffles when you sign up for it!

With an ambitious plan to open up to 30 outlets across Singapore in the next three years, they truly mean business and will be going head-to-head with established brands such as Koi, LiHo and Gongcha. Tried their signature 913 King’s Oolong Tea with “boba” or more commonly known as pearls, and I was impressed with the fragrance and bitterness of the oolong, something that I feel should be the standard for all tea-based drinks. Watch out the other bubble tea brands because TenRen’s Tea is truly here to stay.
