Got curry puffs from @erjiecurrypuff and I like the crispy crust and the flakey skin. There was a lot of filling in it too, I would have liked it more if the curry was more spicy. They have more flavours like luncheon meat, sardine etc but they weren't available when I was there. Overall they're pretty good and worth getting if you're in the area! 😋

@youtiaoman’s frozen You Tiao range features their products in 5 flavours:
- Traditional You Tiao
- Sotong You Tiao
- Charcoal You Tiao Mini
- Wholegrain You Tiao Mini
- Otah Charcoal You Tiao

We got to try the Traditional You Tiao ($4.95 for 6 pieces), Sotong You Tiao ($6.85 for 12 pieces) and Otah Charcoal You Tiao ($6.85 for 12 pieces). They're all really crispy after airfrying. I liked the Sotong You Tiao most because of the flavour of the squid paste and the sesame seeds. The Otah Charcoal You Tiao has a spicy kick from the otah which is tasty too. The traditional ones are fluffy inside, I can imagine how well they soak up a dip or curry 😋

These are very convenient, we popped them into an air fryer and you can control the amount of oil you would like to add to them so it's healthier too! These products are halal certified as well.

You may get these from youtiaoman.com or @finestfoodsg outlets. You Tiao Man is working with @mayerspore to give away $3,100 worth of appliances for every purchase until February 2022! Every $10 spent on youtiaoman.com and all major online retail outlets automatically qualifies buyers to win!

Thank you @youtiaoman for all the yummy youtiao! 🤗

Had breakfast at @chinmeechin.sg without having to queue long because we were first in line before they opened 😂 we had the Kaya toast set along with some of their buns and a gula melaka chiffon cake. I liked how the buns and cake were fluffy and the service was good too! It's a nice place to have breakfast at but I probably won't queue long for it 😅

@sshcurrypuff's curry chicken puffs are stuffed with a lot of filling and have a crispy flaky texture. I would like it more if the curry was more spicy but it was pretty tasty still 😋

Visited Hup Lee Claypot Rice again and was happy to see that they sell hotplate curry noodles now! It was very filling and comforting especially on a rainy day with the curry kept hot for a long time along with that slightly spicy kick 😋

Ordered @sinkee_simpangbedok's chicken rice the other day and got chicken rice balls! They were huge and very filling plus the roast chicken was tender too! The sets were definitely value for money and it's something I'll definitely order again 😋

Had my usual hotplate ee-mian recently at Hup Lee Claypot Rice and it is very shiok with the charred flavours from using the hotplate hehe. Love how they are so generous with the chicken (all hidden under the foil) too!

Had the Fish Maw Set Lunch at @yanjigourmet with thick beehoon and it's yummy too! The soup was very tasty and they were generous with the fish maw plus meat balls/chunks too! The lunch set comes with a drink so it's quite a good deal 😋

Had tasty homely Peranakan food at @currywok_sg with their individual sets recently. I love how each set has a variety of dishes and you don't have to go in a group to try many things. I especially liked the fried fish which was very crispy. We tried their Orh Nee and it was pretty fragrant but a bit too watery for my liking 😅 Will be back for the other dishes next time! 😋

@salmonwarriorsg is a rather new place in @singpostcentre that sells value for money salmon bowls! I got the Warrior Mentaiko Bowl which has salmon with both mentaiko and mala sauce and a choice of a base. I got udon which was chewy and went well with the sauces too! I added on the salmon miso soup which was worth it because it has melt in your mouth salmon cubes and the soup had seaweed and mushroom too! 😋

Tried paofan from @famouspaofan and they were delivered in these self cooking pots to ensure the food wasn't soggy or overcooked. It required 15mins of cooking but the food was good so I didn't mind. I got the double fish paofan which was flavourful yet not too salty. This came with scorched rice as well which was a bit hard but still pretty fragrant. The portion was pretty large too. Swipe to see what the packaging is like!

Just had really good tze char that other day and my favourite dish was the crab bee hoon 😍 The soup was flavorful and creamy, complemented by smooth thick bee hoon and crab meat. This was so shiok and especially good for a rainy day with the clay pot retaining the heat of this dish well. We had prawn paste chicken wings and cereal prawn and they were fragrant and crispy too! 😋
