Kim's Family pride themselves for giving a huge variety of side dishes, or panchan, and that is really something I enjoyed snacking on while waiting for the food to come. While I was surprised that the chicken bulgogi ($25) was not cooked on the grill at our table, it was still good as the chicken was tender, and the sauce... Oh my its perfect with rice; sweet, savoury and just the right amount of spice. The soondubu hotpot ($40) was huge, and it came with a variety of seafood ingredients including prawns, octopus, clams, mussels and of course, pork belly. The soup was fantastic, but maybe the only gripe I had was that the mussels really aren't that fresh.

This is what one will call a hidden spot, as this Chinese zichar restaurant is located on the 6th floor of an industrial building; probably a place where people won't think of coming of having good food. The zichar dishes are decent and not too expensive, but what that impressed me was their fish head steamboat ($35/45/55). We had the small one with red grouper, and it came with generous amount of fish meat that extremely fresh and meaty. This probably explains why the soup is so naturally flavourful and addictive! Will be back definitely ๐Ÿ˜Š

This is my go-to place for Thai food, because the food here really doesn't disappoint. The Olive Fried Rice ($6) had a STRONG wok hey flavour that I was looking for, and it is flavourful. The Tom Yum Goong is a must get as well, as the soup is thick, spicy and contains much seafood ingredients. I love how the interior of the restaurant is made very spacious as well!

Back at Perch once again, and the food served here remains as good or if not better. The Australian Pork Jowl ($24 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) is absolutely stunning, with wonderfully tender and succulent pieces of pork jowl that goes so well with the pickled cabbage below. Really can't find fault in this beautifully executed dish. Probably a must get here.

The Steamed Baby Seabass with Lemongrass Broth ($22 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) reminds me of Tom Yum Goong actually, but the ingredients used are fantastic. Hidden within the soup is a meaty piece of seabass that is fresh.

Although somewhat expensive without burpple beyond, but you are guaranteed a wonderful meal, service and experience. Definitely will be back again.

Most will love a hearty Korean meal, and I'm glad that I'm able to get some quality ones in the east from the restaurant. The soondubu (soft tofu) stew ($13.90) is really packed with ingredients, and boast a very full bodied soup and will definitely warm your heart. With 5 quality side dishes that can be refilled, you are guaranteed a full hearty meal!

Been ages since I went to this burger place, and the quality of the food and service is still high or even better. We had the Hans Im Gluck set ($24 + $4 for alcoholic drink) and the Henne set ($23 + $4 for alcoholic drink) and they were superb ๐Ÿ˜ the burgers are really customizable, and don't expect the burgers to be sinfully juicy; they are known for their natural healthy tasting burgers and I must say the ingredients used are really fantastic. Furthermore, the portion given is ENORMOUS ๐Ÿ˜‚

I enjoyed the cocktails as well, they were huge, I think 3 small cocktail glasses worth? You can taste the alcohol so you know they do put some in it โ˜บ๏ธ the set comes with a hot drink to end your meal right ๐Ÿ˜Š

The service is absolutely amazing, with the waiters occasionally checking if we are okay with our food, and asking if we need anything else ๐Ÿ˜Š will definitely be back again!

Sorry for the bad photos, but this Korean BBQ place is really on quite another level. The spicy chicken thigh ($22 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) , although not a huge portion, but was really tender and flavourful, with the smoky char from the grill. The pork belly kimchi stew ($18 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) was pretty good as well, especially their pork belly slices, which they are known for. The pork belly slices really taste a notch above the rest, and I will be back for it some day. Maybe the downside is that I had to pay $5 for the ramen add-on ๐Ÿ˜ฅ but the best part is that the staff service is excellent and they will cook all meats for you ๐Ÿ˜

Finally tried these immensely popular bagels, and well, it's pretty darn good. The Red Dead ($16) contains smoked beef brisket, smoked sausages and some kind of a slaw within. There is a hell lot of meat in this, and all were seasoned well. The briskets were pretty tender though slight dry, but the smoked sausages takes the show. This may look small, but its really dense and super filling. The downside will be that it's really too overpriced...

This is my go-to place for my ramen cravings, as its ramen quality has been consistently high even after so many years. This Autumn theme Ramen ($12.90) is one of the best among all Keisuke outlets. The umami from both the pork and bonito broth blends so well together, forming this thick flavour packed broth that left me no choice but to finish the bowl clean!

I love the free hard-boiled eggs and bean sprouts concept as well and they are so good together with the broth ๐Ÿ˜

This ramen shop specialises in their Black Garlic Ramen, and its pretty satisfying. The Black Garlic Tonkutsu Ramen ($10.80/12) was smoky, the soup was thick enough and the black garlic oil gave it extra umami flavour. Definitely an option to consider while you're in town!

Cicada, one of the new restaurants that popped up right smack in Clarke Quay boasts a cozy atmosphere and serves up amazing dishes. The Char-Grilled Spiced French Chicken ($30 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) boasts a wide variety of ingredients cooked with a grilled chicken that is tender and packed with flavour. The miso cod capellini ($30 1 for 1 with #burpplebeyond) is also unforgettable as the cod itself is very well executed. As for the mini tacos, well... I would give that a miss.

If you are looking for good beers liquors but still want your local zi-char, this is one place to go. This place sells rather affordable zi-char with many different kinds of alcohol to choose from. I love their beer selections ($8.80 - $11.80) and their highball and spirit concoctions are pretty affordable as well! The atmosphere is pretty chill as well, great for chill drinks with friends ๐Ÿ˜Š
