Crispy Fried Chicken ($28.90)
.
Juicy fried whole chicken @chirchirsg using their own secret recipe. We went for the half and half option, original and spicy. The fried chicken is really moist with extra crusty crunchy skin. The spicy marinade definitely packed some heat but reduced the crispness quite significantly. I always look out for how dry the chicken breast is to determine whether a place is worth revisiting. The breast here was unfortunately a bit dry and my jaw got a little tired from the gnawing😅. Got a complimentary mac&cheese by flashing the @burpple app!

Scissors Cut Royal Flush Set ($5.60)
.
Tried this New Scissors Cut Curry Rice along Sims Avenue. The Royal Flush Set is really value for money as it comes with braised pork belly, pork chop, curry chicken, stewed cabbage and a fried egg. The mixture of curry sauces drenched the entire plate of rice and made this gooey mess really tasty. Individually, the ingredients weren’t as good as the one at Jalan Besar though. Nevertheless, I would still return if I’m in the area. Do also remember to order their asian soup addon. For $2, you get a bowl of hearty soup packed with pork ribs and melon.

Herbal Wine Steamboat ($35)
.
The aroma from this steamboat caught my attention when I walked past this coffeeshop while exploring my hood. Chun Tat Kee tze char stall is tucked away at a corner coffeeshop along North Bridge Road and serves up their house speciality herbal wine steamboat set that feeds about 4 pax. The combination platter comprises prawns, scallops, sea cucumber, razor clams, cuttlefish, sliced fish, sliced pork, vegetables and enoki mushrooms. Whilst the ingredients were in abundance, it was actually the herbal wine broth that got my tastebuds tingling as the bubbling hot broth was full of flavour and made even better after all the ingredients were added in. Best part was that additional soup was provided free-of-charge. There is also the option to add extra ingredients if necessary.

Bah Ku Teh ($6.60)
.
Nothing like a bowl of piping hot bah kut teh to warm up in this weather! My first time trying the Klang version at Leong Kee (Klang) Bah Kut Teh and I was so stoked! The soup is less peppery and carried a slightly powdery texture probably from all the broken down ingredients suspended in the soup. Also a must-try is the dry bah kut teh ($10) simmering in a thick dark and peppery sauce that goes so well when drizzled over the rice. The pork ribs in both versions were not overcooked and retained its tenderness. I would give the preserved veg and you tiao side dishes a miss as they were just not up to par. I’ll be trying the shrimp paste chicken next as it looked really good on the other diners’ tables.

Chee Cheong Fun Roll ($4.20)
.
A surprising find from 126 Dim Sum at Sims Avenue. This CCF (aka rice roll) with mushroom filling was panfried till golden brown then topped with the usual cheong fun sauce giving the overall taste a spin. Really enjoyed this new find! Most of the other items I tried were decent to my liking but not something which I would travel for specifically.

Mabo Tofu & Salted Egg Chix Set ($16.90)
.
I would occasionally crave for the tenshin (omelette rice) served at Osaka Ohsho at the basement of Raffles City. This was the other set we had for the evening. The mapo tofu was a tad salty and a rather petite size. The salted egg sauce that coated the chicken was delicious but some of the chicken pieces were overfried and dry. For the price, this set is quite good value especially since there was also a side of gyozas and a soup served. Nevertheless, I would stick to my tenshin and gyoza set for my future visits as the gyozas are just so delicious and go amazingly well with the omelette rice!

Pig Organ Soup ($6)
.
Authentic Mun Chee Kee King of Pig’s Organ Soup is probably my favourite go-to place for pig organ soup. I like how the ingredients are generous and cooked just right. The soup is also not overly peppery nor porky. For side options, they offer a perfectly cooked minced braised pork rice (aka lu rou fan $1.80) instead of traditional white rice. The dish that took the cake must have been the unassuming preserved veg. I have never tasted preserved veg this good! It was a dollop of mushy greens with braised peanuts as garnish. The flavours were so complexed for a simple veg dish ($2.50)! You have to try it to believe it. My tiny gripe is that the pork balls in the soup were a tad too porky for my liking.

Century Egg Porridge ($3)
.
My staple order when having dim sum. This was from 126 Dim Sum at Sims Avenue. The porridge was of a thicker consistency and was chock full of ingredients like minced pork, loads of century egg and topped with fried garlic chips and spring onion. Really appetizing!

Masala Dosa ($6)
.
2nd visit here and 2nd time having this Masala Dosa. By far my favourite @MTRrestaurant . It’s amazing how vegetarian food can taste so good. I love the crispy crust that goes so well with the accompanying condiments. The potato filling inside was so generous and also superbly flavourful whilst the green chilli paste spreaded lightly in the wrap packed a really powerful punch! So tearily fiery yet shiok at the same time.

Under The Sea ($18.90)
.
One of the popular sushi rolls offered @standingsushibar .
Crabstick, cucumber and avocado roll topped with torched scallop and mentaiko sauce.
Mentaiko and the lightly torched scallop complimented each other well and the freshness of the cucumber and avocado made sure to help give the roll a fresh crunch.

15pc Classic Combo ($25.95)
.
The next time my craving for wings calls out to me, definitely heading back to @wingstopsg ! A whopping 11 flavours to choose from for the wings. I picked classic wings over the boneless as it just seems to taste better bone-in. For my 3 flavours, I had the kicap manis, lemon pepper and mango habanero. All 3 flavours tasted great but the kicap manis definitely took the cake with its sweet stick and fiery coating over the crispy and juicy wings. The food took a while to come but that also meant the kitchen was busy whipping up freshly fried chicken which were piping hot! Swapped the potato salad for onion rings and omg love at first crunch. The onion rings were coated with this delicious crust and paired perfectly with the ranch dip provided!

Chicken Cutlet La Mien ($10.90)
.
Not my first time at Le Nu Beef Noodles but surprisingly, it was their pork bone broth that wowed me! Rich and thick brothy soup reminiscent of the texture of collagen soup stock accompanies the silky la mien topped with seaweed pieces and a piece of well-executed golden brown chicken cutlet that pairs amazingly with their housemade chilli oil. I opted for the original soup instead of the spicy soup this time around so that I could slurp up the soup without the guilt of chilli oil. Also added on $2.90 to get an additional side of century egg with tofu and a can of taiwanese soya bean milk. This noodle set is really value for money! The lava egg ($1.90) was an additional side order which imo can be given a miss.
