Just. Wow. The smell wafting off this intense bowl of prawn noodles already had Veronica and I giddy with excitement, and the first mouthful of silky mee pok with that broth was H E A V E N. The lusciously thick soup is made with prawn heads and is complemented by little niblets of HK lap cheong, sakura ebi, fried shallots and spring onions. A definitely must-order at your next visit to IZY FOOK! 👅💦

Last chance to try this massively tasty collab between PBD and Candlenut before the month is over! That patty is the work of a genius, with the buah keluak’s flavour permeating the entire burger and even chicken cartilage for that little bit of bite. An oozy fried egg, ikan billis sambal and crunchy strips of cucumber rounds off this experience that you can’t get anywhere else. $1 of proceeds from this burger also goes to charity, so there’s really no reason not to have a go at this!

These were little pearls of goodness, freshly shucked and just delish. They aren’t too big, and have a bright, fresh briney flavour that’s great with a little squeeze of lemon. They go fast once the buffet starts, so don’t wait on them!

The chefs from The Ritz-Carlton Bail have arrived at #beachroadkitchen to add a touch of magic to their already stellar buffet. You’ll find all of your favourites: freshly shucked oysters, an extensive seafood station, perfectly grilled beef galbi, cheese and cold cuts and more, joined by a mouth-watering array of dishes from the different Indonesian regions like Java, Sulawesi and Sumatra.

What had me giddy with the silly was the ridiculous row of sambals. Kinda felt like I’d stepped into an alternate version of Hai Di Lao! Mix and match for your perfect version and slather your creation across everything you can. Be sure to try their sate, the soup bunjut with tender af oxtail and the kueh dadar too!

Too much good food here to squeeze into one post, so just come down to explore it for yourself.

More of a craft beer place, Carbon& also has a bunch of rice bowls and Hakka-influenced bar bites. This teriyaki chicken don was nubbad, with tender sweet-salty chicken on a bed of Atika rice and an onsen egg.

Very reasonably priced too, but we’d recommend staying away from the malnourished salmon yuzu bowl.

Simply put, you wouldn’t expect such quality from a coffee shop western stall. The Tipsy Wolves really outdid expectations with this one – light, crisp exterior but succulent and juicy on the inside. The portion isn’t anything to scoff at either, so #thiccc, Minaj would be jealous. Even the accompanying potatoes and napa cabbage were great, giving some balance to the meaty dish though I did wish for a little bit of mustard to cut through all that pork. Business does seem kinda slow though, maybe because their food doesn’t seem that accessible. I would have loved to see this in some kinda rice bowl, just to appeal to more of the lunch crowd.

To make our visit to the vet a little better, we popped by The Garden Slug right next door to set the weekend back on course! This tom yum pasta had pretty good reviews on Burpple and I’m glad to say they were right! The flavours came from the abundance of kaffir, lemongrass, chilli, garlic and onions, making the slick sauce super yummeh on the al dente linguine.

Needed something refreshing so this was it. Not too sweet, but could have toned it down just a littttttle bit. They have soda versions too if you want something with a little more zing.

New croissant shop in the basement of Somerset 313 does pretty decent bakes! Quite flaky and buttery, they come in different flavours like apple cinnamon, strawberry or even multigrain.

They also have drinks like coffee and bubble tea, but these didn’t impress (especially with Koi right opposite them), so stick to their bakes.

There’s a certain home-style feel to their food, like it’s cooked by your friend’s mum that avoids too much salt. 😂 This was cooked a little too soft too but they were quite generous with the shredded crab and prawns.

In a pretty unassuming location, the residents of Pek Kio now have a cozy getaway with pretty decent food! Expect pastas, burgers, pizzas and a few more local specials (it was laksa when we went) from this joint.

The cheeseburger was nubbad, was a juicy patty (though juicer in some spots) and soft onions. The slaw was a nice touch though the fries could do with a little more life.

All aboard the chee cheong fun express! Hailing from Guangzhou, their cheong funs are some the silkiest you’ll find here. Just the right proportion of soy, glistening oil and chewy rice rolls, with the unique addition of eggs and lettuce to the usual suspects (prawns/char siew) makes for really good eatin’.
