Holy Mackerel! ($18)

Mentaiko cheese baked saba fish, on a bed of quinoa (add $3) and assorted veggies. Loved the cabbage slaw so much I wish the carrots were pickled too.

Truly Yum Avocado Toast

This wondrous avocado toast ($5.50 plus $1 for a sprinkle of feta) looks deceivingly simple, but as I have learnt from too many wrong food decisions, the tastiest dishes are often free of unnecessary embellishments. Definitely one of my favourites in Singapore. 👍🏼

Enchanted Buffalo Bites ($9.90)

My favourite here is surprisingly these popcorn chicken bites. The batter is flavourful and crisp, the chicken is tender and the accompanying homemade BBQ sauce is pretty good!

Chilli Crab Sauce Croissant ($11.90)

This was a dark horse. I didn't have many expectations for a warmed up croissant and pre-cooked sauce, but the flavours all came together perfectly. There's even an oozy egg stirred in through the punchy, rather spicy sauce.

Ngoh Hiang Burger

Several dishes were sold out when we arrived at 4pm on a Sunday, so we settled on this ($18.90) even though we really wanted to try the Lu Rou Burger ($17.90). The scrambled eggs are the star here, while the fluffy house-made buns are a bonus. I wasn't crazy about the heavy-handed spices in the meat patty, but my friends enjoyed it. Skip the overtly sweet Ondeh Ondeh ($5.90) drink and get a regular coffee instead. The Iced Latte ($5.90) is strong but well-balanced.

Greek Pastries And Coffee

Soaking in weekend vibes at this spacious yet homey cafe-deli at Suntec (opposite Gudetama restaurant). The Leek and Feta Cheese Pie ($9) wasn't much to shout about, but the Baklava ($8) made for a nice treat with an Iced Freddo Cappuccino ($6). Will come by hungrier next time for their toasts and deli salads.

Korean Carb Fest

All you can eat toppoki at $18.80 per pax? Yes please! Unlike the frozen ones I buy at the supermarket, these toppoki, while obviously defrosted, were very soft and chewy, and there were several varieties to try, including an interesting sweet potato toppoki. Concept-wise, it is similar to how restaurants in Seoul's Tteokbokki Town do it - cook a whole pan of ingredients till bubbling and the sauce thickens, and then dig in. The bonus is that we get to concoct our own toppoki sauce, as well as pick our own ingredients from a variety that includes luncheon meat, cocktail sausages, fish cakes and greens. It's very very filling, so bring one heck of an appetite.

On my once in many moons work tastings, tonight with @gigglesandjiggles!

I am officially a @fynnssg fan. Both the grilled Spanish octopus ($17) and Prawn Scampi ($12.50) had me at hello with their deliciously smoky char. 😍 The meatless pan-fried Gnocchi ($23) was good and just a sprinkle of salt away from amazing, while the Chocolate Semifredo ($13) was such an intriguing, complex dessert. #workdinners #lovewhatido #burpple #girltalk #goodfood #yummyfood

@thrivekitchensg's rendition of eggs benedict is seriously tasty.

The guacamole topping is well-seasoned and full on flavour, and the cashew mayonnaise is just killer. I only wish it weren't such a far trek to the west!

Downright Tasty Assam Fish

I'll drive 30 minutes from east to west just to eat this Nonya-inspired Assam Fish Rice Bowl ($12.90) - I'm even confident the picky bibiks in my family would approve of the zingy, appetising sauce that packs a punch of heat. So good.

Cheap And Good Western Food

It's hard to fathom why this air-conditioned space in Bedok was near empty on a Sunday evening. The service is efficient and earnest, and the honest cooking is a level up from regular coffeeshop western food stalls. I would visit often if I stayed in the area to eat this generous piece of perfectly pan-fried salmon slicked in tangy hollandaise - it's seriously a steal at $9.90.
