Blue Nasi Lemak ($6.50)
.
Salivating over nasi lemak by @simple.dailyfood2 . Tucked away at the ground floor of CThub, this is a pleasant find for lunch any day. The nasi lemak is a steal as $6.50 gets the full works of ingredients including ikan bilis, peanuts, runny egg, cucumber, sambal, and a choice between rendang, har cheong and grilled chicken. I went with the har cheong, which had a very light and crispy crust and juicy flesh. Another fantastic part about this place is the drinks menu. A butterfly pea brown sugar soy milk costs just $2. Do note that the nasi lemak is only available on mon, wed and fri.

Mrs Pho Cockles ($8.90)
.
Do not underestimate this simple looking bowl of cockles @mrspho . The cockles is prepared with a sticky sweet glaze that will leave one smacking the lips and and copious amount of lard that has been caramelized together with the sauce. The star may be the cockles but it’s a mouthful of everything that will taste like heaven.

Nasi Campur Bali ($9.90)
.
Mini platter of goodness @toktoksg featuring balinese style beef rendang, sambal shredded chicken, sliced beef tossed with sambal, egg tossed with belado sambal, sweet and spicy fried tempeh, stirfried long beans, and beef skewer. Superb value and don’t forget about the sambal chilli and sweet chilli available freeflow. Only issue with this place is its slow moving queue so try to beat the lunch crowd and the meal will be perfect!

Mystery Xiao Long Bao ($1)
.
From now till 13 Oct, get this basket of xiao long bao for $1 (u.p. $7.80) when dining @paradisegrpsg ’s Paradise Dynasty (PLQ mall branch only). To enjoy the offer, they require diners to do a food post for them on either instagram or facebook. So glad to know from the staff that I am one of the 3 to-date who guessed it right! Shan’t spoil the fun except I’d say my favourite is still the black truffle flavour.

Tamago Ramen ($14.50)
.
Signature ramen @marutamaramen.sg is still as good as ever. I prefer the original to the spicy soup base and the seaweed topping is very different from other ramen place as they don’t just slide in a sheet of seaweed. Char siew is also tender and tamago has a slightly oozy center. The soup is so good I always finish every drop.

Ikan Otah Kukus ($27.90)
.
Formally Pagi Sore, now rebranded as @coconut.paradises , they have retained much of their menu from my recollection including this ikan otah lukus. Regrettably, this was probably the only dish which I felt was relatively decent compared with the others we ordered. Our main gripe was that we were served food that was barely warm and sending it back to the kitchen probably meant they just took our half eaten dish and reheated it in the microwave and served it back to us. On another note, I was spamming this otah gravy onto my rice. The otah carried a fragrant aroma of coconut and was not spicy. The fish was also tender with minimal bones and didn’t taste fishy. This used to be one of my favourite Indonesian restaurants to go to locally.

Spicy Salmon Bowl ($16.90)
.
Generous portion of fresh salmon cube made spicy with bird’s eye chilli accompanied by tobiko, ikura, chika wakame and an onsen egg. Nothing not to love about this rice bowl from @lecoqsg ! Best to have this with a friend using #burpplebeyond to get 1-for-1!

Premium Crab Meat Fried kway Teow ($13.95)
.
Penang style fried kway teow @penangculturesg (vivocity branch) topped with crab meat. We ordered a plate with crab meat and another without. Basically, no difference in taste though the one with crab meat which was prepared separately had noticeably more wok-hei. The crabmeat did little to add flavour as it appears to have just been sprinkled on top once the plate of noodles was ready to be served. The one without crabmeat was prepared together with other diners’ orders so it tasted very much like breakfast style economical kway teow. Quite disappointed overall as what was served vs pictorial representations on the menu is a classic example of expectations vs reality.

Mala Spicy Beef Noodle ($11.50)
.
Nicknamed (by me) the not so high ses version of Chuan Hung’s beef noodle, @tonguetipbeefnoodles also serves up piping hot bowls of beef noodles deserving of much praise. They have a total of 8 noodle types to choose from with a modest selection of 6 side dishes making it a tad easier to decide what addons to order. I picked the thin noodles as I prefer my carbs to have a less doughy bite. The potato strips side is both cheap ($1.50) and tasted absolutely pleasing with just the right amount of crunch. Contrary to the menu illustration, each bowl of noodles is served with way more beef slices than expected. Lastly, the spicy broth is addictive till the last drop. Not overly peppery with a good kick!

Signature Roast Chicken ($15.90)
.
Fan base of @lecoqsg has been growing steadily recently with so many wishlisting this place on burpple. Dining here has never been more worth it than after #burpplebeyond came about. So we got 2 regular mains for the price of 1 and ended up paying only about $10/pax for their signature roasted chicken platter and spicy salmon don. The roasted chicken is largely similar in taste to those found at good chicken rice stalls but what makes this plate amazing to me is the quinoa. Not a fan of qinoa but the way it had been prepared here surprised me. Utterly delicious and complimented the roasted chicken as well as the usual oily chicken rice did. This main also came with a shoyu egg with a runny centre and a bowl of collagen chicken soup. There’s also chicken rice option available for substitute if quinoa isn’t your thing.

Nasi Lemak ($12.80)
.
@thecoconutclubsg recently reopened last week further up Ann Siang Hill with a fairly larger space. In the midst of creating a new menu, they currently only offer their signature nasi lemak, drinks and dessert but fret not, diners get to sample some of the all time favourite sides and the upcoming new dishes. We got to try the sambal eggplant and the tempeh. I liked the kick from the eggplant cooked just slightly soft but the ratio of tempeh to taukwa felt a bit out of proportion and I don’t think I can finish a sidedish with tempeh being the main ingredient. That said, I love how they ensure that all their sunny side ups are still runny and diners can now also opt for chicken breast instead of leg. Protip: you can request for more crumbs!

Lu Rou Fan ($5.50)
.
Super Lu Rou Fan by Grandma Braised Pork Rice located at Tanjong Pagar Plaza. The portion of pork belly was generous and I liked how the pork doesn’t just fully disintegrate and retained a bit of bite. Penang style chilli was also shiok as there was anchovies mixed in. Overall a very satisfying lunch treat.
