Back then, Swensen’s was one of the popular casual dining restaurants in Singapore and till now, the brand still resonates to many of us. It has grown into the hearts of families as a gathering destination for affordable and hearty comfort food.

From now to 29 Feb 2020, Swensen’s is having a Bring Your Parents Out campaign whereby you can bring your parents out for a meal to the restaurant to relieve those memories. Diners will be treated to one complimentary ala carte main course for every two ala carte main courses ordered. All you have to do is to quote “Swensen’s Special Moments” upon ordering and tag @SwensensSingapore with the hashtag #SwensensSpecialMoment in a post on Facebook or Instagram, sharing on your family dining moment to enjoy the promotion. More information on the campaign can be found via http://bit.ly/BringYourParentsOut

With three soup bases to choose from, signature tomato soup base, beef bone soup base and mushroom sauce, I opted for something light and tangy this time round and their tomato soup contains 7 tomatoes cooked in a single bowl of soup. With a variety of different ingredients to go with your soup noodle, I got the Ebiko Prawn Paste ($13.90) and it was a fantastic choice. The thick and flavourful tomato soup was reminiscent of a certain of hotpot chain’s broth while the hand-pulled noodles with a certain bite to it, is the perfect complement for noodle slurping. The addition of the ebiko prawn paste and half an onsen egg rounds of the dining experience. What’s more, if you are a Burpple Beyond member, you get to enjoy a 1-for-1 for certain noodle dishes such as this.

For all the positives the food brings, the customer service leaves much to be desired on this day. Everything was fine until I was about to make the payment, while my dining partner was still sitting at the table finishing her drink, that the wait staff immediately ushered in a group of customers to our table when my backpack was still on my chair. Maybe practice a bit of patience might help?

Both the açai bowl (RM 25) and crab meat aglio olio (RM 26.90) were fantastic especially the latter which comes with mentaiko, smoked duck and nuts providing the additional texture. Definitely warrants a return again in the near future.

The restaurant insists on using only fresh chicken and this clearly is the x-factor for me as the succulent and tender meat with the crispy skin is the winner for me. Served with an onset egg, this chicken rice dish is not your average run-off-the-mill version but a premiumized one that actually works. Besides this main, Le Coq will also be launching new dishes such as the Beef Crispy Rice ($28) and Ribs & Rice ($18) that will cater to a wider audience.

A healthier alternative from other beverages, this yogurt series contains probiotics and has a base of chewy purple rice as a base. We tried both the Peach Oolong and Matcha, and we both preferred the matcha option as the earthy flavour complements well with the tangy yogurt while the QQ texture of the rice gives it a good bite.

This new limited time offer puts a twist to the traditional fried chicken, in which each piece of chicken is hand-brushed with a homemade tom yum sauce blend and sprinkled with popping candy. The sauce that is coated on the chicken aims to tingle your palate in which you can taste savoury, sour, spicy and sweet, the four flavours that is true to the Thai cuisine. Playing with the texture notes, you will get the crispy and saucy chicken with the sizzling sensation of the popping candy from each bite. This new chicken flavour can be ordered via the ala carte menu or as part of a combo, with 12 pieces of wingettes & drumettes combo that comes with 2 fries and 2 drinks at $22.45.

The eatery is aptly named Downstairs and decorated to resemble a void deck setting under a HDB block. The food that they serve is also leaning towards the comforting kind with stuff like braised pork belly rice, nasi lemak and the pictured, Rice with Honey Glazed BBQ Pork and Lava Egg ($6). The sweet savoury sauce on the charred pork with the creamy yolk is enough to make my lunch is super satisfying one.

If it’s up to me to choose, I will say to go for both of them! The Chicken Dum Biryani ($6.50) is the version that we are all familiar with, in which the marinated chicken is cooked together with the basmati rice while the Chicken Mandi Biryani ($6.50) is not commonly seen elsewhere. What makes the mandi unique is that the rice is cooked in a mandi spice mixture and separate from the chicken. Upon each order, the chicken is then blow-torched to give it a smoky aroma and charred flavour. Just the appearance and colour alone is able to distinguish both biryanis and each is served with a different condiment. The mandi comes with a side of yogurt and green chilli chutney, the latter very similar to the Thai green chilli sauce, while the dum briyani comes with a dhal and a chutney that I suspect is made from plums. Overall, an excellent go-to for biryanis which you will surely feel satisfied and fulfilled at the end of the meal.

With a rather wide range of menu items and dishes that you cannot get from many places in Singapore, Good Come Again is one of my go-to places for Chinese barbeque skewers and North-Eastern China food. From Chinese salads to stir fried noodles and barbequed meats/innards, you are in for a truly unique dining experience at wallet friendly prices. From spicy to savoury and sweet, they have got it all covered, which you will surely want to come again in future.

With a unique blend, accurate calibration of machine and brewing skills, the resulting cup will always be of a certain standard. Well balanced with a nutty coffee profile, it is definitely something that I will come back for again.

What’s even better now is that they are offering all-day rice bowls and the Burnt Chilli Chicken 2.0 Bowl is priced at $10. If you are new to The Salted Plum, this is a must order as you will get a generous portion of charred chicken thigh that has been marinated with Szechuan pepper and grilled Chinese chives. For this rice bowl, it comes with a base of short grain rice and is topped with a sous-vide egg to give that extra creaminess.
