Pulled Goat Curry on Flat Bread ($21)
.
House speciality of newly opened @labocasg which serves up a Cuban-Caribbean fusion food. Curry is more aromatic than spicy and goat’s meat was tender without the gaminess. Love that the flatbread is crisp and thin so that it’s less carby.

De Raza Iberico Presa Shogayaki ($32)
.
Recently been trying out several fusion places and @habibisansg serves up middle eastern and japanese fusion items. The iberico pork was the perfect doneness all tender and juicy with just the right amount of caramelisation. Won’t say I’m a huge fan of the accompanying burnt brocolli tabouuleh but thats probably just a personal preference. The other must order dish is the roasted brussel sprouts ($16) which was extremely addictive and makes for a great starter.

Hanger Steak 400gm ($58)
.
Just opened @asapnco specializes in smoked meats and this hanger steak is their best seller. Doesn’t take a genius to understand why with this love at first bite slab of prized meat usually reserved by the butchers. The meat was perfectly balanced in terms of its smokiness, seasoning, tenderness and juiciness. Probably one of the best prepared beef I’ve had in a while. It takes about 40 mins to prep upon order so best to call to order in advance!

Chirashi Don ($21.80)
.
Excellent chirashi don @house_of_chirashi_sg at wallet friendly prices. This serving came with yellow tail, salmon, salmon belly, scallop, prawn and ikura amongst other ingredients. Each sashimi was sliced so thick it’s no surprised that there were positively more fish than rice. A truly enjoyable dining experience. With a small seating of less than 10, reservations are a must.

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 warm@with 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.
