I usually will head over to Salted Caramel for its salted caramel ice cream (not a tough decision) since it has to be their signature that they even named the cafe after the flavour. With so many places nowadays focusing on making food look “instagrammable”, I very much prefer to fall back on the unpretentious and true to its original form of ice cream and waffles. To me, most if not all of the time, less is more and simplicity always win.

In fact, you most probably would gone to have a fish soup stall if you would like to have fish soup/noodles. However, this place caught me by surprise, and a good one in fact, as their XO Fish Meat Bee Hoon ($6) is absolutely amazing. The richness of the broth with a mild sweetness from the XO and hint of heat from the ginger slices makes it’s so drinkable while the huge chunks of fish meat is an absolute bang for your buck. If you are around the area, I will highly recommend you give this a try!

Matcha Dessert Buffet that will run from now till 31 August 2018. This dessert buffet will be available only during lunchtime from Tuesdays to Fridays (1-3pm) and will set you back at $38++ per pax for the dessert buffet or $58++ per pax for a 3-course lunch set menu of appetizer, main and the dessert buffet.

What you can expect is a spread of Japanese-French desserts that have been infused with the rich, intense flavours of premium grade Japanese Uji matcha. The wave of handcrafted emerald pastries, cakes, sweets and ice cream is sure to please matcha lovers and even health enthusiasts as matcha has numerous health benefits. For me, I personally enjoyed the bittersweet flavour, rich intensity and aroma of the matcha desserts as I conquer each morsel one bite at a time.

Not your usual 麻辣火锅 or 麻辣香锅, this way of eating mala is not common in Singapore yet, but it’s actually widespread in China. 麻辣烫 is essentially similar to our yong tau foo where we pick the ingredients and this time round it’s blanched and cooked in a mala broth that’s drinkable. The numbing of the tongue, spiciness and fragrance of the mala broth makes it such an addictive and enjoyable meal.

If you do not look carefully at the unit number, you will miss them easily but a hint is to look for a unit that has the shutters down and a wooden door with a light shining on it; that’s your cue to push the door to enter. Upon entering, you will be fully immersed in the 28HKS experience, with an eclectic mix of music playing in the airwaves as you browse through the menu for your drinks of choice. Be it sipping onto the Three Stacks (made from rutte celery gin, mancino secco vermouth, fino sherry, pickling spice and served with garden veggies) or the 93’ till Infinity, there are so many unique concoctions that you will want to order almost everything. My favorite has got to be the latter which a classic shake of encanto pisco, pineapple, lemon, cypress and bubbles. Overall, this place has so much character and swagger that you will feel you are being transported into another portal when inside.

Even before receiving the star, the original stall in Chinatown Complex Food Centre already commanded a long queue and to cope with the demands and capitalize on the hype, they have since opened a sit down air-conditioned eatery concept in Hawker Chan with several outlets in Singapore and even ventured into other overseas markets. The signature and star is definitely their soya sauce chicken which unlike other soya sauce chickens around, theirs is very well marinated that the herbs is able to penetrate through the skin and into the meat itself. Prices are slightly higher than the original outlet but still a very affordable meal, let alone a Michelin awarded one.

With a recent revamp of the shop’s interior, Tong Heng now exudes a modern contemporary look while still retaining its charm of retailing traditional cakes and pastries that are all too familiar with our parents and elders. Probably the most iconic pastry in this shop has got to be the diamond-shaped egg tarts that come in both original and coconut flavours. If you happen to be around the area, grab one of these or even pack a box of it back to savour the luscious eggy custard and buttery crust.

During the historic summit meeting between President Trump and Chairman Kim, they had a working lunch session and one of the menu items happened to be two of our local zhi char dishes put into one. Clearly, the chef who thought of this had to be a genius to pair two supposedly separate items together. This got me all curious and off I went to order yangzhou fried rice with sweet and sour pork at one of our local zhi char stalls. True enough, magic happened and I wonder why nobody had thought of this sooner. Hearty in portion, savoury, tangy and sweet in flavour, these two supposedly standalone dishes came together as one, with peace and in harmony.

With numerous stalls here selling curry noodles, my go-to one would be this stall and I would usually order a duo of bee hoon and yellow noodles with an additional portion of steamed chicken meat. The combination of the rice vermicelli, yellow noodles and tofu puffs are able to soak up the lemak curry perfectly. Add in a spoonful of additional sambal chilli and a dash of laksa leaves, mix them well and you’ll get a bowlful of comfort.

P.S. there’s a secret noodle dish called ‘Anything Noodle’ which is a tangy spicy noodles that is only available when Chef Dominic is there to cook. It has all the items of a minced meat and fishball noodles, all in a bowl!

With seafood, chicken, chorizo sausage and bomba rice simmered in a rich seafood and saffron bisque, you get a skillet of paella that has character but lacks a bit of identity. Perhaps the traditional way of cooking in a large pot might accentuate and brings out the flavours even more which this rendition lacks slightly. As for the beef cheek, it has been braised in red wine reduction which pulls apart easily with the fork and goes well with the gravy and mash.

When you go for tapas, it’s best to order several plates (or tingkats in this case) so that you can try out several dishes. At Scissors Paper Stove, the tapas are done with an Asian flair, hence you can expect like Grilled Chorizo Sausage with a homemade spicy chili jam, kebab of lamb shoulders with roasted pumpkin and the unique Pineapple Chicken which is shredded chicken mixed with pineapple, stuffed into a green chilli before going onto the grill. This dish is served with roasted asparagus too.
