Signature Yuzu Shio Ramen ($15.90)
.
After having @afurisg in Tokyo, it’s great to be able to savour it again locally. Soup is as tasty as I remembered it to be with a refreshing zest of yuzu. Char siew came with less slices but still had that tender chargrilled taste. Needless to say, I slurped up all the soup!

Indomie Ayam Bakar ($9.90)
.
Simple but simply delicious indomie served with grilled chicken then topped with the housemade choice of either sambal belacan or sambal hijau. Both packed a fiery kick and paired well with the juicy chicken thigh. Indomie portion is the standard instant noodles quantity. They also served the same dishes with a plain rice and fried rice options and the fried rice was plentiful so it’s good for big eaters.

Gobi Manchuria. ($10)
.
This dish from The Banana Leaf Apollo is good for sharing. The Gobi Manchurian is made using cauliflower thats battered then fried and tossed with their special sweet and sticky sauce. Addictive to munch on as a side though too much of it can get a little salty.

Butter Chicken ($14)
.
Craving this silky smooth butter chicken and some warm naans to mop up all that sauce from @thebananaleafapolo . They use boneless chicken thigh for this dish so both the gravy and chicken are amazing.

Klang Bah Kut Teh ($7)
.
Serving both the dry and wet Malaysian style Klang bah kut teh at Leong Lee Klang Bah Kut Teh, these are actually quite different from the peppery ones we are so used to having. The wet version here is peppery too but carries a heavy herbal taste too whilst the dry version can be described as a gong bao sauce mixed with a generous amount of dried cuttlefish, making the thick black gravy an umami flavour burst. For those unaccustomed to such herbaceous flavours, it may take a little getting used to but I definitely loved dousing my rice with the rich black gravy. Also to note that side dishes are very economical eg. shrimp paste fried chicken is only $6.50/plate.

Half Chicken ($16)
.
So it has been a while since I visited Go-Ang Pratunam’s shop in Bangkok that boasts snaking queues. Thankfully, a branch has opened up at the basement of Vivocity. We promptly ordered half a chicken and a soup. The chicken was surprisingly tender and silky smooth. However some parts were leaning towards the drier side. We were also rather perplexed as to the amount of pieces of meat that resembled chicken breast. There seemed to be too many pieces of breast meat as compared with the thigh meat.

Chicken Chashu Ramen ($13.90)
.
The distinct aroma of seafood fills the entire restaurant at Tokusei Souper Ramen located at Raffles exchange. The restaurant serves 3 types of broth with their ramen. The most eye-catching one being their kani ramen that has its broth made from the sweetness of crabs. The soup is similar to a crab bisque, totally slurpworthy though I do prefer it a little less thick. The chicken thigh chashu reminds me of teriyaki chicken and was juicy and tender. Overall, quite good value for the pricepoint.

Thai Kway Chup ($5)
.
Super late to the party @yaowaratthaikwaychap but really enjoyed my meal here. Although the taste still falls short of my favourite roadside stall in BKK, this is a good version no less. Think peppery soup, sweet thai sausages, crispy pork belly and a generous dose of sliced pork cooked to perfection served with rolled kway. Add a dash of the chilli flakes to give a bigger kick! Also worth ordering are the fried intestines ($8) and the stirfried cabbage($5).

Samurai Kueh Pie Tee ($8)
.
Tried out the newly open @babasan.sg and was rather impressed with their fushion menu sparking much creativity that works. The interresting kueh pie tee has been given an uplift with the usual radish filling being replaced with a mix of coleslaw, unagi, tobiko and bonito. The result is a much more flavourful KPT than the usual. Aside from this, the mains are also worth exploring as they marry very local fare into dishes like ramen and roasted pork belly. With #burpplebeyond ,it’s even more worth a try!

Le Signature Trio Shrimp Ramen ($19.90)
.
Newly open Le Shrimp Ramen at the basement of vivocity serves up a wicked prawn broth made from large prawns that are first baked then grounded and left to simmer for 8 hours. The stock had the entire restaurant filled with the aroma of prawns and was extremely rich. I loved the taste but this isn’t something to return to frequently. The ingredients were fresh and plentiful. My favourite of the trio of ebiko prawn paste, prawn dumplings and fresh prawn is the prawn paste rolled into a ball.

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.
