Finally tried Burger+ and dam, where have you been all my life! Even delivered, the burgers were warm and beautifully presented (they arrived like this!). The Korean Bulgogi Burger Combo ($12.80/double) was juicy and while the bulgogi part didn’t stand out, still a super yummy hamburger. And how is this fish burger $3??? The total bill only came up to $25! Definitely gonna got this up again before the end of CB.

Where has Korio been all my life! Hot damn, was this Breakfast Sammy one of the best morning pick-me-up I’ve ever had. Brioche toasted perfectly, meaty slabs of luncheon meat, and don’t get me started on that amazingly addictive and eggy sauce gribiche. The menu might be small, but these sandwiches got SOUL. 🙌

Taco Mantra has been serving up ugly delicious Indian-Mexican food out of Freehouse’s kitchen for a while now, and I’m glad to have tried a whole range of their offerings. One that’s sure to please meat lovers is their sharing platter; overflowing with ribeye steak, fried pork belly, chicken tikka, wings, samosas and papadum. Some of the standouts were the crisp pork belly, which had a pulled pork texture to it with the flavour and crunch of pork lard. If you’re out here to celebrate, no better way than with this platter of goodness! 👅

Made this a particularly satisfying meal by adding an onsen egg ($1) and salmon roe ($2.50). Loved the huge dollop of roe, really worth the top up! The salmon was nicely seared with that yummy, salty mentaiko hit and the soy citrus noodle had a nice chew and a hint of wasabi heat; made for a great office day lunch.

Pains me to say, but their signature dish seems to have lost its luster. The bee hoon felt a little limp, pork slices were tough and and prawns overcooked. Wok hei was still there but not as much oomph as before. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still tasty, but at its current price tag, a little hard to justify.

One of their signatures, this is their take on the popular exploding fishballs we all know and love in our steamboats. Their version is softer and bouncier, and the filling is smoother and less pasty than the packet kind; a definite upgrade for sure.

The superior soup is clear and tasty, with a shot of hua tiao jiu added in at your table (you can refuse if you want). While I definitely enjoyed my bowl of noodles, I did think the price was quite steep for the limited ingredients.

A seasonal item on their menu now, these scallops might not be huge, but man, are they packed with flavour - seasoned with sumac to give it a middle eastern edge. The broth is amazing too, made with the innards of the scallop, we mopped everything up with their crusty sourdough. Be sure to get this while you can!

Sideways is launching their new lunch menu tomorrow and this steak bowl is definitely one that’ll win you over! Featuring thick, perfectly medium rare slices of steak on a bed of fresh salad, topped off with an oozy poached egg, salsa, guacamole and roasted peppers, this just screams “WORTH”!

There’s plenty more exciting items to try on their new lunch menu, including a very yummy barramundi poké bowl! Gonna be back for sure. 👅💦

Occupying a swanky new space on level one of Raffles Hotel, Gather features crepes, coffee and a great spot to people watch near the Raffles City intersection.

Their best selling dessert crepe is a simple soft, eggy crepe that is laced with toasty, salty burnt caramel and a slab of Bordier butter. While the flavours are quite robust, it does feel like it’s lacking something more substantial (especially given the price point), but we’re also guessing that rental is probably a killer here. 🤣 A nice spot to relax and catch some small bites, but probably not for a full meal.

Always something exciting on Le Coq’s menu, and this Beef Crispy Rice just hit all the right spots! A layer of fried rice on a sizzling hot plate, leave it for a moment to get a nice char before scrapping it off (claypot chicken fans will love this). Top it off with a tasty, medium rare steak and this makes for an extremely satisfying meal.

Nasi Padang and more at #02-147, we gave this Nasi Rawon a try. Comes with an assortment of ingredients, I really liked the soft, baby cuttlefish and the spicy sambal belachan. The black beef gravy that gets poured all over was also nice and luscious, making it a very satisfying meal.

Yuuuuum, these little morsels are super delicious! Their ‘authentic kampung-style otak-otak’ is made with grated coconut, giving it a very fragrant flavour. Definitely order a few up to go with whatever you’re having at Geylang Serai Market.
