You have heard of sambal prawns, sambal stingray , sambal goreng but have you heard of sambal toufu?

Extremely addictive - it’s tastes very much like chilli crab sauce . Each morsel of soft egg toufu is covered and drenched in this sambal egg sauce .

Be prepared to wolf down a huge bowl of rice with this very unique dish .

Tian wai Tian at opal crescent is the only place that I would go for a fresh fish steamboat.

Full of Chunky fresh fish , yam slices , sweet cabbage and baby spinach and a rich underlying flat dry sole fish flavour 😊. And you don’t get thirsty after drinking the soup - this tells very much about how much work has gone into making the soup stock taste so good 🤗

Perfect for a rainy weather .

I have seen several postings on burpple about this humble soup and steamed rice stall that prides itself in using premium ingredients .

It’s not ye easiest to find and I had hope that they would have a better location so that more people can benefit from their nourishing soups.

I had the melon and barley chicken soup and it was indeed nourishing and not overly seasoned.

Their house special is the chicken soup broiled in a whole coconut husk but that was sold out .

My partner had the lotus root with lean pork and peanuts and I must say that I was very impressed to see no fat or oil residue floating atop the soup surface since most stalls use pork ribs which tend to be quite fatty - this tells me that they make an effort to Blanche the pork before cooking the soup.

For red bean lovers !

Intrigued by the cute colours of the mantou and later impressed that these are all natural colourings from fruit and vegetables -
Just dough has been my place to go to for a quick man tou recharge.

So happy that the red bean man tou is back !
It was discontinued for a while because of the extreme work required since the red bean is made from scratch and if you cook - you know the time required to cook these little imps to that creamy goodness. The red bean is subtly sweet and creamy with just a little bit of whole red bean remnants just for texture.

You just need to take a big bite of these warm mantous and savour their unique “ feelings “ ( 😝) -or rather fillings . The yam , red bean and turnip and mushroom mantous ( discontinued for now ) are my favourites.

Other than the many variations of mantous , just dough also serves up lovely and well plated salads and quinoa bowls and a really good pumpkin soup .

For kaya lovers - you must try their homemade kaya with mantou Set - your tastebuds won’t be disappointed with their rich and creamy kaya ( ask for your mantou to be steamed instead of toasted 😝 - I like mine steamed )

I am happy to see how just dough is flourishing and doing well while doing good - everything is home made and for you skeptics out there - no- these are not the frozen or ready made - factory churned mantous that you see all some of the shops set up by Chinese nationals - which pardon me - but I shun away ......

The boss of just dough is into wellness and he believes in delivering high quality food that is both nourishing and tasty .

I am Glad he has done it 😊

A Taste of home 🏠.

Hard to come by home baked - like cakes these days .

I love the authentic banana flavour of the cake and how moist this cake was.

Topped with a Dark chocolate sauce just to make it a little sexy 😜.

For those of you looking for a fuss free meal with a fun class room like ambience , do try the mee siam and the nasi lemak - they are extremely good and very very value for money .

This must be the best hidden secret at MBLM...

1. Appetiser -Vegetable quiche
2. Main course -Grilled barramundi with carrot purée
3. Dessert -Bread and butter pudding

The barramundi was cooked to perfection with such a great crispy skin and the bread and butter pudding was so moist , buttery and flavourful .

Set lunch going for 15.80 ++ and you get a 10 percent off if you use the Waitrr app to order and pay.

This set lunch so worth every dollar of your money 😁

Trying to steer away from my usual Yakun kind of breakfast , I changed upon MOS Burger’s breakfast set.

If I hadn’t mention, this would easily pass off as what cafes ( even upclass ones ) would serve these days.

Nicely plated, the sausages were actually very very good - 10,000 times better than the fake looking ones you get at ikea in your hot dog buns.

The grilled tomato was thick and juicy and the salad was fresh . My only gripe was that the eggs
Were a little too brown for my liking .
The toasts were fluffy and the quality of bread used was good .

At Sgd4.90 , how can? 😱

The newly revamped crystal jade at holland village is modern and bright .

The menu may have shrunk a little but not the quality or taste .

I must confess that I am not a supporter of chain restaurants because they are typically over priced and the quality of food is typically meh~

But left with little choice on a weekday evening at holland village , I decided to give crystal jade a chance and BOY! Was this roasted chicken so extremely perfectly roasted .

So crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside.
And the best thing is that this chicken was accompanied with 4 different dipping sauces / condiments which just heightens up everything.

Better still - for this huge portion of half chicken at 15 dollars plus - seriously ?????

It was anytime more worthwhile than soup kitchen’s tiny Winy thin slices of poached chicken .

Try this and I am sure you will concur with me :)

There are days when you lean a little to the “ dark” side of things and need a deep chocolate ice cream but still want a little bit of “ goodness” of that avacado 😀.

The trick is to get 2 junior scoops so you save on your calories and save on your pocket 😀

So thoughtful of the people behind daily scoop to help people like us who want a bit of everything.

This will always be my default place for a good chocolate and avacado ice cream .

I love the selection of salads at marche .

This is what I call the everything in salad.

A little of juicy field mushrooms, cous cous , pumpkin and olive salad , chickpea salad, sweet potatoes , red cabbage slaw, roasted capsicum, freshly shredded carrots and topped with lots of pumpkin and sunflower seeds .

Enjoyed the 50 percent eatigo discount rendering this salad at 3.50.

How nice 😋.

Incredibly flavourful tomato basil soup that chases away any weekday blues .

I like how natural and clean tasting this soup was and the tangy-ness from the fresh tomatoes .

One of the best tomato soups I have had .

There’s a reason why marche survives through the ages.

Everything is just so home made .
