Freshly grilled meat and seafood with a great seaside view. Food quality isn’t the best around at this price point for buffet standard but lovely getaway from the city life. Love the relaxing and chill atmosphere

Mentaiko half lobster as part of the Happy Feast ($69/person)

Would definitely recommend their 𝐦𝐨𝐳𝐳𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐚 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐬 (4 ⭐️; +$2 for combo; $4.90 alacarte). Delightful cheese pull with a crispy exterior! 👍🏼

Paneer tikka wrap (3.5 ⭐️; $9.80) - Enjoyable and filling mix of paneer tikka, minty mayo, onions, and roasted peppers. A vegetarian option that didn’t compromise on the flavour.

Fragrant and tender salt baked fish. Love watching it unearthed from the layers of salt but did find that some parts can be a bit too salty

SevenDaze is Singapore’s newest award-winning brewery, currently serving 8 styles of fresh artisan beers on tap, crafted from premium ingredients specifically for the local tastebuds. Personal favourites among the 6 we tried were the Irish Red Ale (is this home truly) and Pilsner (it’s my life).

The skewers were pretty standard fare. Found the meat options somewhat tough although enjoyed the seasoning of the nonya chicken. For sauces, we preferred the side of sweet-sour-spicy homemade chilli for a more classic and refreshing pairing. The torched mentaiko was creamy and rich but the generous drizzle overpowered the ingredients and meant the deep fried items lost any crisp by the time we ate (would have preferred it on the side).

Promo: $1/ stick until end Nov!

Mala unagi linguine ($14)
XO King prawn linguine ($14.95)
⭐️ 3/5 ⭐️
🍴Affordable lunch bowls averaging $15 at this cosy restaurant in the CBD. Flavour-wise, the pastas were enjoyable with their unique Asian twist on a classic Italian dish. The mala was fragrant with a good level of spicy kick, while the XO prawn was rich in umami notes. The seafood was also well-marinated and fresh, and we enjoyed the soft and tender unagi, and juicy king prawns.

While the pasta was nicely al-dente, we found the texture to be slightly strange - almost more starchy (sticks to the teeth) and floury. This ultimately affected our enjoyment of the dish, and hence the lower rating.

The stars were the variety of 𝐛𝐚𝐫 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐬 with classic cocktails at $18, signature at $22, and bespoke (customised) at $24. For classic, we enjoyed our choices of fruity raspberry gin (Clover Club) and whisky sour. Was also introduced to their tea-based signature series. Enjoyed the refreshing tea-gin concoctions where both balanced each other well. They also offer mocktails at $12 made from fresh produce and in house syrups.

Yummy well-marinated mains served with roasted carrots, seaweed, garlic spring onion, and a perfectly poached egg. The roasted beef slices ($9.25) were tender and the honey grilled salmon ($10.95) was evenly moist and soft. The la mian noodles (+40c) were softer than we’d like. Also highly enjoyed the tender grilled pork slices ($8.55) with its pull-part meat and soy buttered mushrooms ($3.20).

Overall, an affordable and delicious option, though our preference would have been for less carbs and more protein at this price point.

Mini AKK ($5.60/10; u.p $6)
Ang Ku Kueh ($1.20 each)
⭐️ 3.5/5 ⭐️
🍴How cute are these tiny ang ku kuehs? Coming in a rainbow assortment of flavours, these thumb-sized versions made for an enjoyable bite. The skin was nicely soft and chewy but thick in relation to the fillings (which was quite dismal considering the size). Our general favourites were classic peanut (dark red), coconut (green), and mung bean (light red). We enjoyed the natural tasting red bean (white), yam (purple), and sweet corn (yellow). The coffee (brown) was distinct while we were lesser fans of the sweet potato (pink) that had a slightly artificial flavour. These mini options serve well to those who wish to try a variety.

We preferred the regular sized versions that had higher filling:skin ratio. We enjoyed the thin chewy skin and that they were not too sweet or oily. That said, personally found the fillings to be less flavourful or refined when compared to Ji Xiang/ AKK hut (which remain our preferred choices for AKK).

Came across the bedok marketplace on Burpple and definitely recommend a visit to the hip open-air ‘hawker’ with both local and modern offerings.

Enjoyable wagyu don that came with a generous serving of minced beef and thin wagyu beef slices at this price point. Loved the slight char yet tender minced wagyu that had distinct but not overpowering truffle aroma. Although retaining a pink interior, would have liked for the lean rump slices to be juicier. Given their name, also felt that the slices could do with more sear and smokiness. The onsen egg added glorious creaminess while the wasabi was a great earthy, spicy balance (wished there was more of it!).
