As fruit salad is to rojak, sushi is to this bowl of Poke goodness.

Selected the spicy salmon and Shoyu salmon, with edamame beans, fish roe, seaweed, and avocado on a bed of mixed rice.

Delicious, satisfying, and dare I say, healthy.. (at least a bit 😋).

Little packets of juicy meat and little bits of chopped up chives, the perfect snack for any peckish eater. 😋

It was really satisfying, freshly fried on the spot, thin crispy skin, moist flavourful meat fillings. And to make the perfect dipping sauce, self-served shredded ginger and black vinegar.

Would not hesitate to recommend this dish and stall to any student (local or international) craving a snack anytime of the day. 👍🏼

Enjoyed a good hearty sandwich with fries at this popular cafe while getting some work done on a Sunday (argh procrastination). Liked that the ciabatta was nicely toasted, with good amounts of greens and roasted chicken meat. Pleasantly surprised with the chicken/turkey bacon hidden within the sandwich too - added an additional layer to the already delicious sandwich. Fries were also fluffy and crispy, slightly on the salty side, I guess I’d request for less salt on my fries the next time I’m back.

Strong taste of lavender in the Lavender Cold Brew, quite a refreshing experience. From what I understand, the Lavender drinks here are quite a specialty. Would recommend it to accompany a relaxing day out with the family and friends. Get them all out to enjoy a Lavender Cold Brew at Lavender, Singapore. Heheh.

Pro-tip: Entertainer app applicable for the main courses!

Located right opposite Bugis Junction, Bugis Cube is home to many nail/hair salons and a particularly unique restaurant selling vegetarian dishes with a local twist.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this Orh luak really delicious with good amounts of gooey and crispy in its eggy base. The magic is in the question “How can Orh Luak be vegetarian?”. Turns out the genius of the chefs found a way by substituting the oysters with.. (make a guess?) mushrooms! How brilliant is that?! For mushroom and egg lovers, this is a definite must try dish!

Beyond Orh Luak, this restaurant serves many types local food with a healthy twist at affordable rates. It’s conveniently located with a warm team of staff, making it a great place for small gatherings and groups with people who are health conscious, taste conscious, budget conscious, distance conscious, etc. Give it a try!

“The Marmalade Pantry has outdone itself again❤️” - my immediate thoughts after the first bite.

Huge chunks of lobster grilled to perfection (we could smell the lobster cooking even before it was served!), with a smooth and tangy tobiko-miso-mayo sauce. Was also pleasantly surprised with the mini salad of fresh crisp red reddish and cucumber that complemented the lobster excellently. And to top it off were the golden brown fries and lightly toasted sesame bun, extremely delicious and satisfying.

One of the best items on an already-excellent menu, coupled with the sincere service, reasonable prices, this seals The Marmalade Pantry’s spot as one of our favourite date night options around town.

Pro-tip: Available on the Entertainer app too!

Fiesta is a new Chinese restaurant at the NUS Kent Ridge campus, located just behind the UHC bus stop at the NUS Staff Club. We stumbled upon this place after our run at the NUS track on a weekday during the school holidays, and decided to venture an attempt at this seemingly quiet restaurant.

We ordered the Ma La Hotpot, got a 3 veg 1 meat set, topped up some maggie noodles, and selected the least spicy option. It was surprisingly satisfying - fresh ingredients and, our favourite part, the ma la flavours delivered a kick without being excessively oily - nicely done overall.

Would expect this place to get more crowded once the semester starts. If you’re craving Chinese food while in the vicinity, this would probably be a good option.

East Coast Park with the sun, sea, and beaches in its full glory - one of the best ways to enjoy a beautiful Saturday morning in Singapore. Of course, no outing in Singapore can be complete without food. And what best place to satisfy any local food cravings than the good old hawker centre!

We bought two items to share between three of us for a sneaky afternoon snack. The Taupok set feels like a refined take on its famous cousin, the traditional Rojak. With the sauce separated from the crispy youtiaos and grilled taupoks stuffed generously with fresh cucumber shreds and beansprouts, this dish is actually much crispier and surprisingly refreshing. Topped off with thin slices of flavourful cuttlefish and crushed peanuts, it’s a good option to savour the most popular items of the traditional fruit salad of the tropics. Matched with the chicken wing grilled to perfection with crispy thin skin and tender meat, it’s a great way to enjoy the weekends with friends and loved ones.

Pro-tip: this is a popular evening hangout spot so not all stalls would be open before 5pm. Visit during lunchtime or the afternoon to avoid the crowd, but if you’re up for it, head down during dinner time to fully soak in the atmosphere!

“The most beautiful egg tart”, was how we remembered it. And that was 2 years ago when we visited Shanghai and was introduced to this beauty by my then-Shanghai-living, now-journalist friend.

So when we had the chance to transit in Shanghai this time, I thought, hey why not take the chance to relive and revisit these great places again.

It did not disappoint - a flakey yet buttery crust with a soft eggy middle, just slightly sweet. The next time you’re in Shanghai and had one xiao long baos too many, why not try this egg tart too?

Popular restaurant serving good and affordable fusion food. Made a reservation a week ahead and was happily seated upon arrival. The couple in front of us weren’t as lucky, and were turned away as the restaurant was already full, so make reservations y’all!

Ramen was delicious with the chicken collagen broth, finished every drop in the bowl, yums. The barramundi was fresh, with a crispy skin and soft tender flesh. The Egg, one of the more famous dishes at the restaurant, featured a twist to chawamushi, with fish roe and chips topped generously atop the bed of steamed egg - unique and a must-try.

Overall, I can understand why this this place is so popular, would be happy to return, just remember to make the reservations!

Located near Bugis, The Beast is one of the more prominent restaurants in the Arab Street area. We were at Bugis and decided to pop down for a chill Saturday dinner.

The catfish was nicely breaded with a unique cornmeal mix that kept the fish moist and sweet. The rice was fried deliciously as well, and even included bits of beef! The 3P burger included 3 types of pork - pulled pork, grilled pork belly, and bacon - all of which already sounds good by itself, and became even better when combined!

Pro-tip: if you have the entertainer app, this restaurant is on it as well - use it for one-for-one mains :)

Legend has it that this is the place where the first XO fish soup was created.

So a few of us colleagues decided to head down to this Kopitiam at Dover to try a bit of history. Not a bad choice. Soup was thick and flavourful, with thick portions of fish. It was so good, all of us could not resist and eventually finished up all the soup. Imagine emptying that entire full bowl into your tummies! 🤤

We sat among the other 30-40 other tables all waiting for the fish head steamboat. Finally, after enduring a one-hour wait, the skill-fully manuvered trolley balancing the steamboat approaches our table, and yes, it's here!

Generous amount of fish head, yam, and delicious fish broth. Flavours were brought out through the stir-fry. If you're willing to wait up to an hour (could buy satay etc in the meanwhile), enjoy sharing a steamboat (with charcoal flames too), and generally stronger flavour, this would be worth your while :)

Exploring our world. Engineer by day, foodie by night(&wkends). Here are my food adventures❤️
