Essentially the concept lies somewhat in between the two, whereby you first pick the ingredients that you wish from vegetables to seafood and meat before it gets blanched slightly and finally it gets cooked in a mala broth that’s drinkable. Other options include a preserved vegetables and non spicy broth if you want to mix things up a little.

However, in the midst of this, many have gone towards the road of fusion till confusion, which makes it so difficult now to find a place that stays true to its roots and cooks from scratch. One such gem is Blue Jasmine where Chef Nipaporn whips up her repertoire of Thai dishes that is unlike any Thai restaurant in Singapore. The flavours that you’re going to get is something that can’t be found outside of the restaurant, which many might find a bit unfamiliar with. Some of the dishes that opened doors to a different interpretation of Thai cuisine include the Thai Fried Kway Teow with Chicken ($14), Tom Yum Sea Bass ‘Poh Tak’ ($20) and Roast Chicken Esarn Style ($16). If there’s one that you have to order, then it’s got to be the hot and spicy ‘Poh Tak’ fish soup that has roasted dried chili and holy basil in it. This will surely awaken all tastebuds for its tanginess and spiciness.

She prepares all the ingredients from scratch, and it is a damn laborious process when you know that she still uses the pastel and mortar to pound the spices and her insistence on using fresh ingredients as much as possible. In the process, Chef also ensures that the authentic Thai flavours of sweet, sour, bitter, spicy and umami are clearly represented in each dish.

From the starter, there’s the Cha-Om Fried Egg ($12), which is relatively uncommon here in Singapore but I absolutely love this omelette with acacia leaves. Usually, this is eaten with Gaeng Som (a type of tangy Thai Orange Curry), but this time round, you can it dipped with the accompanying raw vegetables in the nam prik kapi which is a sauce made from fermented shrimp paste and bird’s eye chilies.

Perhaps my favorite dish of the night has got to be the humble and simple stir-fried long beans dish called Holy Basil Krapao with squid. Using a basil paste made from big red chillies, bird’s eye chillies, galangal, shallots, garlic and fresh turmeric, this goes into the stir fry together with the long beans, basil leaves and seasonings. Squid rings are added last to ensure that it’s not overcooked and still retain a certain chewiness. For such dishes, it’s best paired with a bowl of white rice.

The stories that revolved around both chefs were not only captivating, it left a lasting impression as they seek to preserve their heritage and change the perception of their cuisine that has been butchered by many mediocre interpretations. Both chefs dug deep into their roots and stood firm in their beliefs that food should be cooked the most original and authentic way, away from the current trend where many restaurants take shortcuts, make fusion confusion and alter the food in order to earn the tourist dollars.

This media tasting at Blue Jasmine couldn’t come at a much better time as I have learnt that Chef Nipaporn is a true believer in preserving the Thai cuisine and seek to quash all misconceptions that Thai food is only tom yum and pad thai. Furthermore, most people have a perception that Thai food should be cheap and cannot do without pork in the cooking process. The prices at Blue Jasmine is definitely not your average Thai food price point that you are familiar with but I can boldly claim that it’s worth the money as the flavour that you will be getting is something that you cannot get elsewhere. Throughout the entire meal, I did not feel that there was an absence or needing of pork as the usage of other meat/seafood produce is more than sufficient to make it a delicious plate.

Pictured are two Thai curry specialties that Chef Nipaporn has brought to the restaurant, a Southern Style Green Curry with Kampong Chicken ($24) and a Yellow River Prawn Curry ($26). The former has chunks of kampong chicken mixed in with eggplants, basil leaves, kaffir lime leaves and chillis in the green curry broth while the latter is a unique yellow curry that’s not commonly seen in Singapore. This exotic and creamy yellow curry is simmered with other spices such as galangal, fresh turmeric, onion, garlic, lemongrass and chillis before grey prawns are added into it. Both curries are perfect to go with a bowl of rice.

As a form of reward for my hard work in burning calories on normal days, whenever it’s burgers time, it has to be uber satisfying and comforting. I cannot believe that it’s my maiden visit to Fatboy’s but I finally understand why many have dropped positive reviews about this place. Zoomed in on their speciality burgers and ordered one of the populars, the Wimpy ($15.50), which is a single patty version of the iconic Fat Basterd. Using beef chuck, the patty is joined by chewy bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried egg and homemade bbq sauce, sandwiched between a “blanket” of sesame seed bun. Additionally, I believe that everyone needs some spam in their life and I have duly paid tribute to the burger lords by adding an additional piece of spam into this already monstrous stack.

One of the long-standing cafes in Singapore, Oriole Coffee is famed for their coffee and brunch grub.

They are definitely not kidding when you order the Fully Loaded ($22), as your plate will be filled with all items that you will want to get for breakfast and brunch. Think roasted potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, arugula, toasted sourdough, eggs done your way (I got mine scrambled) and last but not least a huge spicy pork sausage. Hearty portions priced at a price point that is the norm of many cafes nowadays is definitely an affordable option seeing that it’s at Orchard Road as well.

Using custom-made and licensed Ramly burger patties, you can finally have an authentic Ramly burger with options of beef, chicken and fish starting from $3.90 for a single patty burger and $6.10 for a combo meal which comes with standard fries and drink. All burgers come wrapped in egg and you can even customize further by pimping your burger with add-ons such as egg, cheese and additional patty. As they are still in their soft launch phase, expect more things to come from Ministry of Burgers as they will be looking to offer more East meets West creations.

However, I was pleasantly surprised at the curry chicken served at Fu Xiang Signatures as this was not only lemak, it was also packed full of flavours with a heat that lingers at the back of the throat, something that all curries should benchmark from. What I’ve heard and read is that this recipe was passed down from the family and now the younger generation has taken over and decided to preserve the heritage. So if you are at the food court and wondering what to eat, this will definitely make your decision easier.

Fortunately, these rumours were quashed, thanks to the information shared by @bibikgourmand, that the couple were just merely relocating to a new coffeeshop. Their previous location is still a prata stall but not using the original recipe at all. Hence, the legacy continues as both Mr and Mrs Mohgan brings their prata over to Joo Chiat Road and we will have a few more years before they decide to retire for good if no one decides to take over the brand eventually.

Dropped by on a wet and rainy Sunday morning, thinking that it might be less crowded as most people would have just snuggle in bed and wake up for cafe brunch later. However, it was a good hour wait for my 2 kosong and 1 telur ($3.50) which I demolished in minutes. They still have two kinds of curry, the mutton and fish, which I opted for the fish and a side plate of sambal (its a reward if you managed to get a piece of anchovy in it) to go along with it. If you have had their pratas previously, it needs no introduction as everything was on point despite the throngs of people who were patiently waiting. For the impatient ones who constantly bugs the couple, please head elsewhere for your breakfast/lunch if you are not able to see that there’s only one Mr Mohgan kneading and flipping the pratas, and one Mrs Mohgan taking orders, washing the plates and preparing your curry. All in all, this is a hawker legend that does one of the best pratas in Singapore.

In collaboration with OOH.SG, who supplies these addictive and tongue numbing mala chips, they are added into Teppei’s signature kaisen don which contains 6 different types of raw seafood such as salmon, tuna, swordfish, whelk, scallop and ikura, served on top a bed of Japanese rice in a single bowl. Szechuan peppercorn oil is drizzled over it to give it that additional spicy kick and mala flavour.

This particular way of preparation ensures that diners get wholesome meals of quality and the restaurant is charging them at an affordable price point. With each main ordered, it also comes with a free-flow serving of the salad bar which helps in cultivating a balanced diet of proteins, grains and vegetables. One of these new charbroiled dishes is the pan fried cod fillet that’s served on a bed of Shimeji mushroom risotto ($36.50). Pesto croutons and a homemade red capsicum sauce are added into the dish to provide a crunch and heat respectively. Overall, both the fish and risotto require a touch more salt to bring out the flavours as it is under-seasoned.

Alternatively, if you are in the mood for some red meat, you can opt for the rack of Australian lamb ($36.50) that has been grilled with a blend of herbs and spices, served with a minty ranch sauce. Personally I am not a big fan of lamb and hence I am not really able to judge how good this is but tasting that it has only a slight gaminess, this should appeal to the general population.

For this first launch, diners get to enjoy the free flow Imperial Brut from Moët & Chandon together with other liquids such as wines and beers with a buffet line and live carving station on that one-day event. If you are familiar with the food at Senso, then you can expect contemporary Italian fare such as cured salmon, seafood marinara pasta, cured meats, cheese & crackers and many others to surely make you belly happy.

Early bird prices start from $129++ per pax, so do reserve your seat early if not it is going to be the usual starting price of $149++.
