@ryanskitchen_sg currently has this tomahawk steak set that’s certainly worth some festive cheer! Besides a sizable tender steak, it also comes with two red wines, a medley of vegetables and two truffled angel hair pastas (though we weren’t in love with the pastas). Added on some fries and this was easily good for 3-4 pax and made for a pretty good family lunch.

Excuse me @burpple, was I living under a rock or did you guys stealth launch @putien_sg deals on #BurppleBeyond recently! Imagine my glee when I was scrolling and saw my favourite restaurant now offering 1-for-1 on their mains, vegs and tofu dishes! Don’t think there’s a need to introduce the food, just that I’m going to be using my deals as much as I can wahahaha!

@asapnco, the love child between @brulee.sg and @thesmokhous. Just opened in November, they were pretty much still full house on a Tuesday night! Their specialty is definitely their smoked meats and the matron of the shop highly recommended this hanger steak which is said to be a prized cut of butchers. Man, was it goooood... Great flavour and perfectly tender and juicy. Delectable smokey as well, this is a cut we’ll be back for.

If you’re ordering their smoked meats, you can (and should) reserve ahead of time with your order to avoid a long wait. Still some teething issues (understaffed, music is scratchy) but our food was yummy!

Congrats to @bengwhocooks on their new minimalist space! From dishing out grain bowls at Hong Lim to their very own restaurant, they’ve come a long way.

My favourite course of the night was this Happy Ending dessert that changes depending on what the chefs feel like serving. What I got was a creamy camomile mousse, crisp granola and pillowy cake that really gave you different layers of flavours and textures on upon each bite.

This popular lunch spot is constantly packed on work days, so was pretty happy to get in within 5 mins the other day. Ordered the classic dry pan mee, which of course was a great choice. Toss the chewy noodles with the dark sauce, oozy egg, minced meat and copious amounts of their deep red chilli oil for an addictive heat. What surprised me was the lovely pork lard! Slightly crackly and super fragrant, made all those calories worth it.

@6lettercoffee’s platter boasts a generous serving of their signature wings (soy glazed crispy wings), Crispy honey wings, criss-cut sweet potato fries and salad. A great option for sharing, we really loved the well done, fluffy sweet potato fries that was great dipped in the ranch sauce provided. Really filling though (the crusts on the wings fills you up fast), so only get this if you’ve got enough friends in your party!

Newly opened along Rangoon Road is the sleek looking @daizu.cafe. Self referenced as a minimalist Japanese-Western restaurant, expect dishes like Garlic Butter Sakura Ebi Pasta, Chirashi Bowls and this take on the classic chilli crab dish.

This fared much better than the chirashi bowl; the sauce was thick and had just the right amount of heat and tang to keep things interesting. The toasted brioche was the perfect vessel for mopping up all that sauce too. Gonna keep it real and say the food was a little hit and miss for now, but definitely wouldn’t mind giving them another shot!

Simply decadent. This pasta dish from @winervlt has received a ton of praise and you’ll understand why the moment you get your first mouthful. Perfectly al dente fresh pasta tossed in a unctuous, creamy uni butter sauce. The Argentine red prawns are some of the most tender and sweet I’ve had too. If you order a side of bread, be sure to save some to mop all the sauce up, you won’t want any to go to waste. 😜

Was planning to brunch at @clintonst_sg, but the wait was a little too long so we moved a few doors down to the newly opened @slate.singapore. This seems likes their most popular brunch item, boasting a phat omelette chock full of blue swimmer crab meat in a creamy smoked ‘crab fat’ sauce. Quite a lux brunch affair, nicely complimented by the refreshing snow pea shoots salads.

Korio knocks it out of the park again! This oozy, cheesy mess of roasted cremini and shiitake are a mushroom lover’s dream. Sandwiched between perfected toasted sourdough, they have also added arugula and caramelised onions to cut through some of the thickness. I’d recommend to split this with a friend though, as there really can be too much of a good thing!

Felt like indulging a little this weekend, so we ordered in from The Broiler! The Duo Plus combo comes with a whole mud crab, prawns, mussels, clams, smoked sausages and corn. Overall pretty happy with the whole seafood shebang, the prawns being the highlight for me (the crab was good, but just a little mushy inside). Be sure to get their onion rings, still had a nice crisp to it and was great at soaking up all the sauces!

They do provide the plastic table sheet if you want to recreate the whole eating off the table experience at home, but I’d rather not be busy fending off @taro.and.kuri the whole meal.🤣

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.
