Dining at this Duxton Hill bistro is as close to dining in Paris as you'd probably experience here in Singapore — the tables are cramped and you can listen in on your neighbours' conversation without much effort, but hey, that's part of the charm! Settle down to catch up with a friend (leave the airing of dirty laundry for another time) over a plate of Trimmed Entrecote Steak ($34.90 for 190g). Unlike the version at Les Bouchons, this one comes slathered in gravy. The steak itself is cooked to a perfect medium rare, and is served with golden fries and a walnut green salad. If you'd rather not have the meat drenched in their legendary sauce, ask to have the gravy served separately. The steak is automatically portioned into two; the second portion is brought to you halfway through the meal, so pace yourself. Pro tip: Ravenous? Order the 300g XXL portion at $54.90 instead.

Ordered this Taglia porchini w truffle pellegrino which is really good and portion is just right for 1 person. Price is reasonable and food was served fast. Do book in advance as the restaurent is really packed.

Dinner / 8 March 2018: new found sinful snack in the form of fries with octopus, ikura, cheese, takoyaki sauce, mayo and bonito flake!

I was transported to heaven upon my first spoonful of this decadent Varhola Manjari 64% Supreme goodness! The alcoholic content here was on point! ✌️
You can get these sweet treats one for one with @entertainersg! #notsponsored
Definitely try this along with the black sesame cake!

Take decadent, fudgy chocolate brownies to the next level with a flakes of sea salt and dark chocolate chunks added into the mix. Though a subtle sweet-salt contrast, Lucia Cakes' Salted Dark Chocolate Brownie was such a treat. Thick, chocolatey and gooey goodness at $35 per box (25 pieces). What’s more, a quick microwave and throw in a scoop of vanilla ice cream to double the indulgence.

The salmon and snapper, especially, are both crunchy and smooth in the mouth.

Replacing defunct Ramyun & Soju at Orchid Hotel, this Japanese curry house from Hiroshima is worth checking out if you're in Tanjong Pagar. The space is rather cramped, so go solo or bring just a friend or two. They offer customised toppings and spice, like many other curry houses out there, but what really sets them apart is the inclusion of paitan soup. Diners are encouraged to add the light broth to any leftover rice and curry, turning it into a porridge-like consistency that is quite comforting. The Deep Fried Chicken Curry ($15.70) is a classic, and one that has Burppler Jianwei Low coming back from his weekly fix. For something different, try the Garlic Pork Belly Curry ($15.70). Sliced thinly, the pork was less garlicky that Burpple Tastemaker Xing Wei Chua expected, but he still enjoyed it for its juiciness. Pro tip: The bowl may look large but don't be deceived, says Xing Wei. The portion is actually good for one.

Set in International Plaza, this new kid on the CBD circuit is the place to go for hearty rice bowls and coconut soft serve. Of the two rice bowl options available, the Burpple community highly recommends the Sh-nack Don ($8.90). Expect umami beef slices, a runny onsen tamago and crispy Cajun-spiced fish skin served atop a bed of warm Japanese rice — great for lunch! Wash that down with their Coconut Shake ($4.90) made with a blend of Thai coconut water and bits of coconut flesh, or treat yourself to the dairy and nut-free Coconut Soft Serve ($4.90), drizzled with gula Melaka sauce and powdered gula Melaka. It's refreshing and light enough, and makes for an icy finish to a tasty meal.

Chanced upon this zi char place as I saw a queue outside the store and decide to give this a try. I am sold! Generous portions and good quality food. Yums.

Each bowl comes with several massive prawns that have been conveniently halved and slippery white beehoon all drowned in that umami rich broth. Serving size was also very generous. Highly recommended!
