Most might have visited this place at one point in time but it’s the first time for me. Glad to see that they are offering different kinds of pancakes though they should do something about the interior or worn furnishings.

Savoury pancakes such as Garlic Buttered Prawns ($17) was a surprise to me. Pancakes stack served with prawns generously buttered with garlic, the rich sauce actually goes quite well with the pancake. Non-garlic fans might be deterred by the smell, can try More For Smores ($14), a twist on the classic S’mores. Nutella and torched marshmallow layered between the pancakes, drizzle with salted caramel and chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I like how cosy the place is even though it's right smacked in CBD. Brings a sense of calmness. The chirashi set was great value at SGD24. Loved every mouthful and I love the pumpkin croquette. So good #japanesefood #japanesecuisine #theflyingsquirrel #sgig #sg #bscc_japanesesg #burpple

One of my favourites was The Egg. I mean, how can you not get egg-cited. Hah. Hella smooth Chawamushi topped with Ikura, Tobiko and potato chips. Such an umami bomb but it wasnt overtly salty as expected and the crunch of the chips surprisingly went really well with the smoothness of the egg and the texture of the fish roe. Also check out the C&C pasta. Filled with caviar and crab, it definitely was tasty. Would've preferred if it was warm though. Maybe it should be C&C&C; crab, caviar and cold😂 #imnotfunny

The ambience was bright and cheery. Service was pleasant, and we even had a complimentary plate of Burrata! :D Whoo

Even though there was a queue at 1:00pm, I didn’t have to wait long as bowls of ban mien was served to diners at a fast rate. Naturally, I went for their signature, the Dry Chilli Ban Mee ($5), and I was clearly satisfied at the end of it. The dry chili mixture brought a slight spicy kick and after mixing it together with the poached egg, black fungus, fried shallots, minced meat and anchovies, you are in for a comforting lunch. The choice of these simple ingredients complimented with each other, and in the process, able to make the entire bowl shine brightly in the spotlight.

Red: what's local food without some chilli, but don't worry the sambal is not as potent as it looks!
Yellow: the yellow rice has a very mild garlic fragrance, not too different from regular white rice. The chicken thigh portion is huge! Well-grilled with crisp skin edges.
Green: added the sambal goreng as an essential fibre source to balance the meal? Or rather just me being greedy 😁
At $5/5.50, the chicken thigh size alone is enough to stop you in your tracks. This stall in Maxwell Market is also quite popular for its ayam penyet if you want something with more crunch.

Stumbled upon a corner hawker stall in Jalan Batu Hawker Centre that serves really decent Korean food. "JoJo Asia Delight" (stall #01-01) is manned by three kind-looking aunties who seem like they want nothing more than to feed you well. Which explains the pretty generous portions for the price.
The crispy fried fish and spicy tofu stew sets cost only $5.50 each while the dumpling, egg and glass noodle soup was $4.50.
Now you know why this gets to go on my list of cheap and tasty places in my hood.

I won't be impressed with Technology until I can download Food.
