Signature Aburi Wagyu Don

Signature Aburi Wagyu Don ($21.90)

This was the other don we tried at Waa Cow Sushi Bar, the 2nd branch of @waacowsg located at raffles exchange!

This don is amazingly good! Definitely add on the truffle shavings (+$5) as the truffle flavour pairs so well with the seared beef! The beef was cooked perfectly after being sous vide for 24hrs and then torched! Extremely tender and juicy, coated with their extremely delicious signature wagyu beef bone sauce. Portion of beef is also generous enough to accompany the entire bowl of rice! The accompanying onsen egg with tobiko just made the bowl even better once all that runny yolk coats the beef😋!

Fried Chicken

Best way to start off the long weekend! 🎊🍗😋🍗🎉

Still the best fried chicken in Singapore! Only sad that no choosing of parts is allowed so best to have friends who favour a mixture of the parts!

Fried Fish

Fried Fish ($7.80)

Fried fish @thecoconutclubsg ! Yet another superb side dish for your nasi lemak. Fried till ultra crispy on the outside and served with yummilicious sambal. Lunch here always feels so decadent!

Sambal Lala

Sambal Lala ($10.80)

Missed this on my previous visit to @thecoconutclubsg so made it a point to reach earlier this time! This bowl of sambal lala has kick and is totally worth ordering. The clams tasted fresh and succulent while the sambal gravy went so well being drizzled over the nasi lemak rice. Go early to avoid disappointment!

US Black Angus Striploin

US Black Angus Striploin ($22.90)

2 strips of perfectly cooked striploin beef served with a crusty potato mille feuille and an organic watercrest salad. I only wished the juicer rib-eye was available on their menu. The potato mille feuille was definitely more inviting that traditional mash/roasted potatoes! Not a fan of the rather raw tasting watercrest😕.

Hungry Bear

Hungry Bear ($18.90)

When one is as hungry as a 🐻, have a go at this bowl of curry chicken from newly opened @samacurrysg . I opted for the hungry bear option for that extra half slab of hamburger patty though it may be a wiser option to go for the pork instead as the hamburger steak was a rather thin patty. Fully customizable, I chose coconut curry for the base and a level 15 spice level which was rather mild by my standards. Go higher if you are a lover of spicy food!

The curry was quite rich and thick probably from the coconut but tastes quite different from local curries. The whole chicken leg 🍗was generous and the meat fell off the bone easily while retaining its tenderness. My bowl of curry was empty by the end of the meal so that says a lot about the gravy!

Old Tiong Bahru Bah Kut Teh

Old Tiong Bahru Bah Kut Teh (~$15/pax)

Though the ribs here were not as meaty as the other usual suspects like Songfa, the soup was very brothy but not overly peppery and full of flavour from the pork ribs. The other dishes like their minced pork omelette and braised large intestines were also awesome! Nothing like a hearty meal good for large groups. Do note that there's no airconditioning here so best pick a less sunny day for this!

The Egg

The Egg ($9 😱)

The egg 🥚was served with tobiko, ikura, homemade potato chips and beurre noisette (warm sauce). Reminded me much of chawamushi especially with all the fish roe added. Veered towards the saltier side and I'm not too sure of the purpose the potato chips served. Nevertheless still an enjoyable dish.

Aus Frementle Octopus Tentacle

Aus Frementle Octopus Tentacle ($14.90)

Back @themassessg because everything on the menu calls out to me. While definitely not priced for the masses, this octopus tentacle served with pickled lotus root and gochujang aioli is definitely well executed! The tentacle was not rubbery and the kick from the gochujang was an interesting accompaniment to the star!

Mixed Tendon Set

Mixed Tendon Set ($17.80)

There's a new kid on the block! Rushed down to @KoganeYamaSg to try out their tendon bowls! Kogane offers mix and match options with more customizable bowls designed to let you create your ideal meal. The bowls offered included prawn, chicken or vegetables but if you love to try everything then opt for the mixed bowl like I did. They also had rice, soba and thin udon noodles as options and 4 levels of spiciness for their tendon sauce.

My mixed bowl came with too many ingredients! Notable mentions include the succulent chicken breast, the ginormous slice of kelp, shitake and enoki mushrooms and 2 large ebi tempura head-on and tail-on! I think the prawns 🦐must be the signature of this tendon place as it is distinctively more delicious than the ones served at Kohaku and Ginza! I went up to max spice level for the sauce and boy did it pack some 🔥 but nothing Singaporean spicy food lovers can't handle😂.

My verdict? This new kid is great but still falls behind the usual suspects as I felt it lacked the oomph from Ginza's giant slabs of chicken breasts + tempura egg and Kohaku's squid tempura. Wished they included more meat in their bowl!

Mixed Tempura Ocha-zuke

Mixed Tempura Ocha-zuke ($12.80)

This mixed trmpura bowl @tsukijifishmarketrestaurant was unfortunately was like an extremely distant relative of Ginza/Kohaku tendon. The batter was rather heavy and greasy and the portion of prawn, scallop and mixed vegetables was rather small. The ocha-zuke when added to the rice bowl felt mismatched and actually tasted better on its own😕.

Seared Salmon Truffle Don

Seared Salmon Truffle Don ($12.80)

Couldn't resist ordering anything which uses truffle as a primary ingredient! The salmon slices were thick and nicely seared though I would prefer slight charring at the edges. 6 slices of salmon adorned with a dollop of chopped truffle paste on each piece meant that the bowl was not only fragrant but also whets the appetite with the umami of the truffle. Overall a decent don for the price paid!
