Dinner Time!

A list compiling my dinner experiences across Singapore 🇸🇬

Normally I am a little skeptical in trying places that's been raved about online, but thought I should give this place a go considering it's actually a stone's throw away from my place and my family don't dine at the coffeeshop enough anyway. To my surprise, the Honey Milk Pork Belly was actually really quite good — the chunks of meat were actually pretty crisp without being particularly dry, whilst coated in a Honey Milk sauce which comes creamy yet sweet; the curry leaves were crisp, and the chili padi induces just a slight hint of spiciness when one bites on them. Really liked how the rice beneath was also drenched with a bit of that Honey Milk sauce — found it pretty effortless to finish the rice here. Guess I have finally found a place for decent tzechar in the neighbourhood; would probably make plans to try more of their offerings. Move aside, salted egg yolk — honey milk is gonna be on the top of my list now haha!

PS: interestingly, the coffeeshop now also houses another branch of Hua Zai H.K. Style Roasted Delight that also operates at Tampines — looking forward to trying it out at this Woodlands branch too!

Tucked away in a quiet corner on the 3rd floor of Bugis Cube, this shop serves ramen with a local twist!

Noodles: slightly springy, and goes well with the broth. Add some Japanese chili flakes to mix it up!
Broth: Slightly salty, with a bit of pork aftertaste.
The broth was not as thick as most ramen shops. However, foodies who prefer subtle flavours should love it!
Grilled meat : Usually offering both pork belly, and lean meat, they only offered lean meat when I got there. The meat was sweet, and juicy. Perhaps one of the best components in the ramen.
Fried enoki mushroom: The fried enoki mushroom was much thinner as compared to the usual enoki mushrooms you eat outside. However, the combination of both broth and enoki is fantastic:)

Price: $11.50 ( with an additional egg)
Personal grade: B

If you havent had affordable Kurobuta steak, head down to Vivocity's Marche now! Pick from endless proteins and greens to satisfy your tummy!

Kurobuta steak: Grilled to perfection, every bite is a slice of goodness! The pork was so tender and flavourful, and the seasoning on it was well done! For its price, one might get a second serving!

Garlic pork sausage: Well grilled and seasoned! The garlic aroma was subtle, with a peppery aftertaste. The texture of the meat was rich.

Mushrooms: well sautéed, however I felt the taste did not compliment the mushroom sauce and the proteins.

Mushroom sauce: Like most mushroom sauce, except that it had a good consistency!

Price:
Kurobuta steak: $15++ (before GST)
Garlic Pork sausage: $7+

Personal grade:
Kurobuta steak: A+
Garlic pork sausage: B+
Mushrooms: B

I popped by for dinner and they were having a promotion for this chicken rice bowl!

Not really sure what's the name, but this bowl served Japanese rice covered with a generous portion of kimchi chicken bulgogi, garlic soy midwings, and chicken Karrage! It even had a onsen egg in the middle to complete the dish!

Kimchi flavoured chicken bulgogi: slightly spicy with an average kimchi taste, but it gave the dish an extra kick!
Chicken karagge: the chicken was tender and well seasoned with pepper and salt!
Garlic soy mid wings: my absolute favourite! The wings were well seasoned with a right amount of sweetness and garlicky aftertaste! I suggest breaking the onsen egg on it to give it that extra bite!
The rice: the grain was decently sticky and goes really well with each chicken portion!

Price: $10 (on promotion)

This is my second time at Ramen Santouka @ Clarke Quay The Central.
Dish breakdown:
Ramen with Shio Broth: The lightly salted broth tasted incredibly smooth, with a pork flavour aftertaste. The taste of the ramen was a bit disappointing - a rather bland addition to the dish. The ramen's texture is chewy - definitely freshly made!

Pork cheeks: The highlight of the dish! However, comparing to the previous time I had this today's pork cheeks did not taste as flavourful. The marination on the pork was mild. However, the pork was so tender that it melts as soon as you bite into it!

Overall, I paid about $30 with this set together with a ramen egg and Gyoza as a side dish. Very satisfying meal on a Friday night with a couple of friends :)

Personal grade: A-
