Ohhh my, was this good! Served warm with a slab of espresso butter, the crisp edges on toasty, fluffy banana loaf should be criminal. Order this.

The combo comes with the omurice and a pasta (we picked mentaiko), we also added on a couple of chicken wings ($2/pc) and a pork spare rib ($3/pc) to share.

Overall it was alright but nothing mind blowing. The mentaiko in the pasta was fairly muted, but had enough flavour to keep me interested. The fluffy, smooth egg was quite nice though. Chicken wings were tasty but normal and we’ll pass on the ok spare ribs if there is a next time.

Mmm. Simple but decadent. This morsel from Le Coq’s Raw Bar section brought a smile to all our faces. Smooth, creamy uni on crisp buttered toast with a little bit of onions to balance out the richness. Could easily pop a dozen of these.

Our original lunch destination was closed, but doesn’t matter when Tok Tok was nearby and super yummy! This mix of dishes on a plate will satisfy those who need a little variety in life; with beef rendang (my fav), sambal shredded chicken, egg, tempeh and more, you’ll get something a little different in every mouth.

They’re really popular though and a little slow with the service, so do budget some time for lunch. Make sure you come with backup to get seats while you queue!

Start your meal with this explosive combi of sliced amberjack in a delightly punchy calamansi and chilli sauce (don’t underestimate the heat!). It somehow reminded me fondly of the “ceviche” you used to be able to get from porridge stalls.😂 Definitely one of those dishes that leaves an impression, and gets you ready for more good food to come.

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.
