I love Singapore. I think you guys have awesome food. Anyone want to help me move there? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Ah yes, LeVel 33. If you think paying SGD 20+ to go up to the sky deck at Marina Bay Sands is not worth it and would rather eat.... don't come here.

Here's a few things to note if you want to dine with the amazing skyline:
1. You need to spend at least SGD 60 to dine at the patio (no air-conditioning so sit at your own risk)
2. I sat at the patio and ants came to join me for my meal.
3. You don't get to see the sun setting cause it's in the wrong direction but the night lights are really amazing all the same (on Saturdays. Cause Marina Bay Sands has fancy light show)

Now that we have that out of the way, on to the food.

I ordered a starter, a main and 2 drinks. The starter, Snails and Pigs was breaded, deep fried braised pork belly with some escargots and a lone strip of bacon. And it tasted awesome. The pork was tender, escargots tasted great and the sace went well with everything. Heck even the bacon tastes good!

And that's it.
Why? Because everything else tasted like something I could get cheaper for 1/10 of the price.

But that's for another post.
Till next time! ^_^

Stumbled upon this creamery that was just a few doors away from my Hostel (Fisher BnB) and decided to give it a try to wash away the bleagh tasted of salt bae-ed yuk gae jang from my mouth.

Turns out this place has a few branches in Malaysia and came from Thailand! Their match green tea ice cream was rich and thick with no ice crystals, translating the smoothness of a cup of matcha onto your mouth while also delivering coldness to your tastebuds. Amazing eh?

Not bad! I likey! The yuzu soda was so so though... But if you're not looking for something heavy (I sometimes like to end my dessert on a more refreshing note) to end your meal, maybe you might want to give this a pass.

Ah yes. How can lah visit Singapore don't go for the FAMOUS Sungei Road Laksa. It's 4SGD for a bowl of laksa (one size) with EXTRA siham. Which are super juicy by the way and of course here's the thing that catches most Malaysians off guard (not me la since I'm a food chameleon) - you only eat with spoons.

Yes. Only with spoons. Those who ask for chopsticks shall perish!

Flavour is really thick and creamy with the paste giving it that hot kick. Juicy siham and bouncy fishcakes. Sweating while you scoop spoonfuls of the thick rich creamy broth with juicy blood cockles and bouncy fishcakes into your mouth. Proceed to wash down with iced barley drink.

You're welcome

Got maself a yuk gae jang (์œก๊ฐœ์žฅ) which is easentially spicy beef stew (served with rice) and the flavour was light, not in a bad way but it was soooooo salty ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ I really wanted to like you! I really did! Price wise I guess it's pretty standard. They have a lunch special price so that didn't make me feel TOO bad. But gah. Gotta wash that down with some dessert (sounds like another review coming up eh?)

Till next time!

It's actually my first time coming to a cafe in Singapore (I mean... they're everywhere so I usually go for local, hawker-y food) and I decided to pop my Singaporean cafe cherry at a cafe nearby that was loaded with people.

At approximately 7 SGD for a cup of hot chocolate, this is quite a good cup (resit urge to convert) tho I wish the foam was...a little frothier and thicker. Will come back for the expensive looking cakes and ang ku kuehs.

Till next time!

Ola humans! I am back! After the long hiatus, the food gods have once again blessed me with a review!

Guess who is in Singapore for a while? Yes, yours truly. And what better way to start the day off with some pig organ soup?

The pig organ soup here is not exactly the same as Malaysia (where it's basically pepper soup), rather, the soup here is mild, warm and could use a bit more salt and pepper (nothing a little soy sauce can't fix tho) going for a price of "I can't remember", this bowl isn't terrible expensive (I remember giving a 50 dollar note and getting like 30 something in return for 2 bowls of rice and 2 bowls of the soup) and has liver, intestines, tofu, and pork meat.

So if you're in the area and need comfort food, give this a try! If livers, organs and stuff are your thing that is.

Hello Singapore! How's it going? For Michelin Star food that won't break the bank, head over to Chinatown complex for 2 SGD Soy Sauce Chicken Rice!

I ordered 3 plates of Chicken Rice, extra char siew and siew yoke, veggies and the additional cost of takeaway set me back by 14SGD. Pretty cheap if you ask me.

The chicken was sweet, salty, soft, juicy, all you would want in a Honey glazed roast chicken. And that was what it tasted like. I wouldn't be like "this is the chicken rice to top off all chicken rice!!" No. I love my crispy skin roasted chicken sometimes as well. But this is a different type of chicken rice and I'm saying it's a good tasting different type of chicken rice. Siew yoke, in my opinion, lacked taste but otherwise, everything else was enjoyable. The char siew didn't have too much fat, the vegetables were soft (i prefer those rather than crunchy ones) and the soy sauce was flavorful. They also use white rice instead of the typical oil rice, which to me is like a meh-heh kinda thing. I mean... on one end I'm like but eee no oil rice and on the other hand I'm thinking how it makes it leas greasy and perhaps it might be a good thing.

Side note: if you can't stand such a setting๏ผŒthey have a restaurant opposite, on the other side of the road selling for 3.80 SGD per plate of chicken rice

I write reviews and stuff. And take pictures as a hobby
