Grilled Seabass with Lemongrass ($22.90)
.
Officially my new favourite asian restaurant @yunnanssg really serves up flavourful dishes that’s sure to whet the appetite. The char permeates throughout the fish, giving it that slight crisp on the skin and the smokiness throughout while the seasoning tantalized the tastebuds by attempting to numb the tongue slightly. The spiciness level has just the right amount of kick for me and the portion is great for 2-3 pax.

Afternoon High Tea ($46/pax)
.
Probably one of the best ones I’ve been to at L’expresso located @goodwoodparkhotelsg . This ala carte buffet’s notables include the sea shrimp open sandwich, tuna salad croissant, scones served [email protected] clotted cream and jam and the beef wellington. The beef wellington was probably my ultimate favourite with its very tender beef drizzled with red wine sauce. The selection of TWG teas is equally extensive and the Goodwood exclusive Legacy Blend 120 is a must try. They are always packed so early reservations is a must. Expect outdoor seating to be quite warm when the sun is out even with multiple ceiling fans. We got lucky and were offered indoor seats soon after our first orders arrived.

Sideways Omelette ($25)
.
Probably shocking at first instance that this omelette @slate.singapore is so steep but the ingredients make up for it. 110g of blue swimmer crab meat and smoked crab fat amps this omelette up. With its oozy umami filling, this omelette is nothing short of pure decadence. Also enjoyed the the tangy salad on the side. Another must order here is their fries. Think long john silvers but even better served with their housemade sambal mayo. We requested for additional servings of the mayo just because this was such a perfect pair.

Bunon Kara-age ($15)
.
A collab between Bunon from Japan and @winervlt , this was a must order recommendation by the staff which has been commended by japanese diners as the best kara-age in Singapore. With a light and crispy exterior and tender juicy chicken thigh chunks, I would say one of the best fried chicken I’ve had. Also in picture is the homemade sourdough served with whipped seaweed butter ($9) which while pricey is also so heavenly. We slathered our bread with an excessive amount of the butter just to mop up the serving so this was maximum shiokness.

Boiler’s Duo Plus ($89 for 2pax)
.
Craving seafood in a bag so tried @theboilersg ‘s seafood in a bag for 2 seasoned with their special “The Works (mild)” sauce thats mildly spicy and rather galicky. Loved the plump shellfish bursting with the umami juices and the sauce. Contents included crab, clams, mussels, corn, sausages and 2 fried buns. We also added a side of onion rings thats just superb when used to mop up the sauce. We did feel that the crab meat was a tad mushy but maybe it’s due to the takeaway.

DIY Popiah Set ($$19.80)
.
For the fun of having a popiah party without the hassle of prep and cleaning up, have a go @goodchancerestaurant . The stewed radish quantity was generous along with the other usual toppings. However, with each popiah working out to be $3+ and missing some luxe ingredients like chinese sausage and shrimps (which are available with additional charges) this popiah didn’t really manage to satiate my craving. The restaurant had a few good dishes but exuded a rather touristy vibe.

Bijin Nabe ($25/pax)
.
The OG bijin nabe @tsukadanojosg_bijinnabe I’ve been having since time immemorial. Price has remain stagnant for as far as I can recall but they have undergone numerous menu changes. Still quite value for money and it is always a treat to be promoted on their loyalty card literally. We received a complimentary chicken nanban for the promotion to President and CEO 😂. Collagen soup is rich and addictive and the beauty noodles is always a treat to slurp up.

Perilla Flavoured Frogs ($39.80)
.
Missing this addictive tray of froggy goodness @wahkungfu_sg . The frog meat is first fried then left to simmer in the flavourful umami laden gravy elevated by the perilla leaves resulting in a tender texture with a thin crusty exterior. The soupy gravy was both slurpworthy and went well drizzled on rice. Thankfully, they offered free soup top-up! We opted for the mildly spicy version so that we could really taste the dish and not need to down liquids and fill ourselves up too quickly. Special mention also to the lamb skewers ($1.20/ea min 4 sticks per order). It was so good we ordered a 2nd portion in a flash. Prices here is a bit on the high side though.

Softshell Crab Katsu ($22)
.
Absolutely the must order @parkbenchdeli ‘s collab with Handsome Chinos available only for today. Katsu fried to crispy perfection topped with seaweed tartar and slaw sandwiched between a fluffy bun. Queue’s way shorter than usual so thats a plus to come!

Mac Kobe ($42)
.
A decadent spin on the otherwise common mac and cheese @themalayancouncil . The mac and cheese here is tossed with spicy tulang (bone marrow) merah topped with grilled kobe beef and torched mozzarella. Loved this ultra rich version though the portion is best shared amongst 3 at least. The umami from the bone marrow was evident in every mouthful and the spicy gravy balanced well with the cheesiness. The most unforgettable part of this dish is the kobe beef slices, each perfectly seasoned and cooked to just the right doneness.

Samsui Ginger Chicken ($42.90)
.
Crowd favourite samsui chicken @souprestaurantsg . Not sure whether the pricing for a large portion is usually this pricey as we ordered off the cny menu. Portion is good for 4-5 pax. My favourite way to eat this is to use the lettuce to wrap a piece of chicken and some sliced cucumber then douse the ginger sauce generously on top. I always feel that it’s a pity that there’s no chicken rice chilli accompanying this dish. Super flavourful lettuce wrap reminiscent of hainanese chicken rice.

Teochew Steamboat
.
CNY steamboat at Teochew Traditional Steamboat Restaurant to save all the hassle of prep work and cleaning up. The walls of this restaurant adorned with countless photos of celebrities who dined here is testament to the popularity of this place. Soup base is a rich shark bone broth full of collagen and they serve up an array of homemade balls and pastes. Also on the menu is some ready to eat dishes like the fried wontons and brinjal with pork floss. Both are must orders here. Items are priced quite economically so it’s a real good deal to have spent reunion dinner here.
