back here for a second time after 4 years and happy to say that this place did not disappoint after all this time ☺️ ordered the platter for 4 which came with fragrant sautΓ©ed king mushrooms, a german sausage sampler plate, 5 sides of your choice, a dessert brownie with ice cream & of course the star: 3 different flavoured slabs of juicy mouthwatering ribs that slide right off the bone! πŸ‘πŸ»

Having moved from Shaw Towers to a bigger space at Tan Quee Lan, Ah Loy Thai has proven time and time again that when it comes to good and authentic Thai food, they sure know what they’re doing! Be it their mango salad or signature tom yum soup, every dish hits all the right notes!

Truly deserving of the Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand is Alaturka Mediterranean & Turkish Restaurant - situated at Arab street, this authentic Turkish food establishment serves up the best Mediterranean food my tastebuds have ever sampled! Must-trys include their platter of dips and hummus Meze Tabagi as well as their Karisik Kebab Platter for two (pictured) which gave us a delectable combination of lamb, chicken and beef kebabs served with a fluffy white pilaf and mixed vegetables. The meat was not the least bit dry but in fact very juicy, tender and favourful! Be sure to save some space for their tasty desserts too!


Tucked away quietly amidst the lush greenery of Tin Hill (Bukit Timah) is an enclave of delicious food, wonderful service and a great ambience.

Try their Darling Downs Wagyu with a 'Beef Marble Score' BMS of 6 and above! The meat was really succulent and tasty and the black garlic puree which accompanied was delightfully fragrant and complement the meat exceptionally well!! Excellence in every bite!

Tucked within a row of shophouses along Bukit Timah stands this non-pretentious coffeeshop serving up a Thai food storm. Favourites such as Tom Yum Soup, Pineapple Rice, Mango Salad and Green Curry, every dish was on point with its flavour and texture. The best part? Everything is at affordable prices despite its prime location!


Spain is a country with a complex and rich history and it definitely shows in their cuisine! From 'tiny rations' known as Tapas to giant servings of mains such as their signature Paella Valenciana, Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant sure serves up a storm with its delectable dishes full of bold colours and flavours. Great place for groups with its hearty portions and vibrant atmosphere~

Get the most bang for your buck at Y Cube Mookata Buffet, offering a vast variety of meats and seafood for just $29.90 nett on weekdays! With choices such as flower crab, crayfish, scallops and mussels, this is one of the more impressive mookata buffet spreads I've tried. I exceptionally loved how they had the famous Thai MAMA instant noodles so we could spice up our soup with tom yum seasonings and piping hot noodles. They also offer sashimi and free flow Thai iced tea to go with your meal and ice cream for a perfect ending!

Named after a German word for "local", LoKal is not your typical local food nor does is serve up German food. In fact, it is modelled after an Australian cafe offering favourites like fish n' chips but with their unique twist like the chilli coriander mayonnaise which was spicy and zesty altogether, really tasty!! Great food and great vibes, what more could one ask for :)


With a diverse food culture in Singapore, Mexican food is not hard to find but if you're looking for quality yet affordable Mexican food, Barrio is the place to check out! Generous portions, tender meats and perfect flavours, this place is hands-down my new favourite Mexican joint!

True to its name, like a bomb, the salted egg filling burst out from all sides the moment I pressed my knife down on the prata. The Salted Egg Prata was a tad small for its price of $6 but it well made up for its size in the taste department When tasted together with the cripsy prata that contained it, the salted egg sauce was thick and rich yet not too jelak. A definite must visit for other local offerings!


With the rising trend of eateries moving away from the usual malls and cafe districts, Citrus By The Pool is one such place tucked quietly in the heartlands by the Woodlands Swimming Complex (by the pool, literally). They serve up a good variety of western food with some asian fusion/selections at really affordable prices! Do try their desserts too!

Arteastiq is definitely a place that brings new meaning to the phrase "cooking is an art" both in terms of their beautifully presented and wonderful tasting dishes as well as their artisanal teas. Not to forget that they have art-jamming sessions available as well!
