Maze Chirashi ($45)
⭐️ 5/5 ⭐️
🍴One of the higher quality #chirashi around that comes with super fresh and good cuts of sashimi that justify the pretty expensive price. The stars were the melt-in-your-mouth uni and Otoro but even all the other fish like ebi, chutoro, maguro were of equally great freshness and texture. With the #sgcircuitbreaker, this bowl now only comes with salad and not their tea & dessert (without the cover charge) which a bit of a shame as we were always fans of those accompaniments

Tarts ($8-11)
⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️
🍴Delicious and refined #tarts by the head pastry chef of @lesamisgroupsg. Albeit pricey, they were of amazing texture and flavour balance, and we understand why people would fork out the money for these desserts. Our favourite was definitely the #strawberrytart with it’s perfect balance of berry, custard, buttery crust, and what we think was some alcohol ($11). We also enjoyed the baked cheese ($8) and dark chocolate ($8). If you’re looking for a more unique and local flavour, the #pandancoconuttart tasted like kaya but was on the sweet side for our palettes. P.S the recipe for the strawberry tart can be found on the Michelin guide and even though I followed it to a tee, it can’t come anywhere near the original which further highlights the skill and dedication involved in this craft

Reservations are required a month if not two in advance or walk-in and wait around an hour. My second time here and still blown away by the quality and texture of their pastas and their accompanying sauce. The #gnocchi were almost like soft potatoes, really soft yet not mushy and paired with a tasty braised duck. However, it does get a bit filling and heavy so would recommend not eating it alone. We also got the special of the day - a spaghetti with tuna and anchovies and it was delicious and flavourful. We also tried their #passionfruitpannacotta which had a nice texture and wasn’t too sweet

#gobletoffire comprised of baracadi oakheart, peach, lime & pineapple and was a sweet concoction with a nice balance of fruitiness, citrus, and rum. It was a bit on the sweet side but otherwise very enjoyable. Being lit on fire was a nice touch of theatrics that made the fairytale-storybook concept come to life
📍@storyvillemelbourne, 185 Lonsdale Street Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

It’s $2 more for a gooey onsen egg and $5 for 5 gyozas which were nicely fried and filled with flavorful meat. We also enjoyed that this cosy store away from the more popular russel street outlet was not crowded on a weekend night.
📍@hakatagensukecarlton, 126 lygon st Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Always been a fan of their curries that have a yummy mix of spices and tender meat, and comes with a bowl of rice. The #padseuw is another favourite with the flavourful well-seasoned beef and soft noodles. The only let down this time was the #brocolini stirfry that was overpriced and not special in anyway, being simply cooked in oyster and sesame sauce.
📍@chinchin, 125 Flinders Lane #chinchinmelb #cafehoppingkidsmelbourne

There’s a full range from junior to original to extra dark hot chocolate/ one with salt. We enjoyed the extra dark one that had a nice but not overpowering bitterness balanced out with the sweetness. They are also selling an interesting campfire hot chocolate for $8 that involves a blowtorch-smoked maple and marshmallow combination.

It’s far out from the Melbourne main city area but has the highest ratings on #zomato (near perfect 4.9/5) and rightfully so. The food was generous portions and well-executed. The #beefpatty was succulent and flavourful and with the double cheese and French mustard, it was a very enjoyable burger. The #portobellomushroom is written as the signature dish on their menu and would recommend it as it is unique and delicious. The juicy mushrooms were Panko crumbed to give a nice crispy texture, and came with two poached eggs that were perfectly flowy and halloumi. The dish was enhanced by the zaatar spice and romesco sauce
📍@shanklincafe, 500 Tooronga Rd, Hawthorn East, Victoria, Australia

Our favourites were the Hakka style organic brown rice roll ($7.80) that was very unique, being a perfectly crispy roll with fresh prawn in a soft skin that paired with a tea-based sauce, and the pan fried radish cake ($5.40). Would also recommend the truffle crab meat fried rice and oyster vermicelli. The beetroot prawn dumpling ($6.80) was special but only liked by those who enjoy beetroot. We found the custard bun ($5.80) and honey pork bun ($6.80) to be a bit on the sweet side.
📍@majesticrestaurantsg, 5 Straits View, #04-01 Marina One, The Heart, Singapore 018935

We went with the chicken broth that was tasty and got progressively so with the adding in of egg and other ingredients. The 10 types of organic vegetables were really fresh, along with the mushrooms and our favourite was the oyster mushroom. The chicken meat was also very tender. There is also the choice to add other ingredients not part of the set like beef (14RM for large) and various mushrooms (4-5RM).
📍Cameron Organic Vegetables Steamboat, 10 Bandar Baru, Cameron Highlands, Brinchang, Prahang, Malaysia

We went with coconut and mango and it’s a yummy sweet treat to beat the ipoh heat. While the ice cream is nothing spectacular and the flavours are a bit artificial, it goes really well with the puff which is fluffy and has a slight crisp texture.

#matchaya at Cathay has undergone a revamp and has moved away from a hole-in-the-wall kind of store to a polished-looking concept store serving a bigger menu including Japanese desserts, drinks, and food. There are also seats and the food gets served, making it a more enjoyable and chill environment for hanging out (during off peak timings)
