The sizzling Lechon Sisig ($12.50) also pulls its weight with its chopped up lechon being caramelized on the hotplate mixed in with a raw egg. Be prepared to queue on weekends though as it is also a favourite dining spot for our Filipino friends.

Chopped Lechon ($22)
.
@lechonrepublicsg serves up the best way to do pork and the best rendition I’ve had. Possibly heart attack inducing but a must try before die dish. Every piece of crackling was crisp while every slab of meat slathered with the accompanying gravy was enough to go down with 2 mouthfuls of rice.

The honey butter toasts needs refinement as it was neither pillowy nor eggy enough imo. Will be back to try some of the swiss rolls collab with Antionette since it was sold out so early on opening day.

Signature Fried Pork Set ($8.80)
.
New branch opening @thehainanstory had us joining the queue to enjoy 7 different hainanese concepts culminated at 1 location. This typical hainanese curry rice set’s star was the crispy fried pork that was aromatic, crispy and juicy all at the same time. Most of the items were pocket friendly but we felt that there were some hits and misses from our order.

Fiery Fatimah ($8.90)
.
A local inspired sushi roll filled with grilled otah, boiled egg, sambal sauce, peanut anchovies. A very familiar nasi lemak flavour with a nice crunch. Recommended to also add on the Kettle popcorn with its unique savoury flavours like nasi lemak and chilli crab. We tried both and the chilli crab was surprisingly addictive.

Thanks @burpple for the invitation and @wooshisg for hosting.

Wooshi x Burpple Bowl ($10.90)
.
Limited time deal until end March @wooshisg with #burpplebeyond . Super value meal to get double the treat of kara-age and kani sticks topped with fried shallots and a special pink sweet fish floss sitting on a bed of brown rice and served with a tub of super creamy salted egg sauce.

Vietnamese Broken Rice w Grilled Pork ($8.95)
.
This nondescript vietnamese joint located at the basement of Plaza Singapura has been getting constant evening queues probably in part due to the modest space but also the friendly pocket prices and authentic viet food served. Tried the broken rice, an interesting texture of rice that’s hard to describe. What i enjoyed was the tender grilled pork that wasn’t too dry and carried a mildly sweet and smoked flavour.

Clams ($16)
.
@zhen_de_la clams actually stole the limelight away from the speciality prawn noodles. A fusion of loca and japanese flavours, the clams were swimming in a melting pot of flavours when belacan married sake. There’s a real kick to the gravy and would have loved some bread to mop it all up.

Penang Fried Kway Teow ($6)
.
This plate of Penang ckt from Malaysia Chiak, a food chain found in several malls and focusing on Malaysian street food is as close we can get for now to the wide array of classics from our neighbour. I’m not complaining as this satiated my ckt fix with its generous portion of wok-hei infused kway teow complete with lard bits evenly distributed throughout. I’ve always preferred the more savoury penang style ckt as compared with the local sweeter style. Not all the selection available at Malaysia Chiak is of a passable standard so some caution is required when deciding on which stall to patronize.

Punggol Nasi Lemak (~$5/set)
.
Best fix for nasi lemak craving are these delicious plates from @punggolnasilemak . There’s a variety of sets to choose from at the newly opened branch of @punggolnasilemak located along Jalan Besar. My favourite is definitely the fried chicken. Thin Crispy crust on the outside with juicy meat. Both the wings and drumstick were fried to perfection and paired so well with the fragrant coconut rice.

Crispy Original Xiao Long Bao ($7.80)
.
New product from @paradisegrpsg to up their xlb game by panfrying the very delicate dumplings carrying a mouthful of umami superior stock. I loved the combination of a slightly crispy base with the very juicy meat filling. Also deserving mention is the Shanghai style Sweet and Sour Crispy Fish ($11.80) for its tangy flavour and crispy bite.

Spicy Mindy’s Chicken ($19.50)
.
Pasta perfectly cooked @gardenslug seasoned with chilli, lots of lime leaves and a generous amount of chicken chunks. I have never been disappointed every visit here. Also super in love with the Frothy Nutella Shake ($8.50). So sinful but wickedly delicious.
