🍽: Royal Js Fried Porridge

Price: $6.00

🚇: Lavender
📍: 30 Foch Rd, Singapore 209276

I have yet to try this till now. I remembered, the first time I went there, the waiting time was 3 hours long just to try their famous fried porridge. I totally gave up. Now, since I was nearby the vicinity I decided to try it again. This time the wait was only 20 mins.

Different from it counterparts, the Royal Js fried porridge is stirred fried with ingredients like yam cubes, dried cuttlefish, dried shrimps and finally topped up with chives and pork lard fritters. Not only was the porridge texture thick, it carries a strong wok flavour with the pork lard as a flavour enhancement. The only thing that I did not quite like was the yam powdery feel and the lack of meat.

Overall, I had an enjoyable experience and I will drop by there once again to try their zi char menu. Oh ! and I have notice that 88 Roasted meat specialist have shifted to the opposite road which I heard so many good reviews about it

🍽: Wagyu Beef Don 

Price: $12.90 

🚇: Lavender  
📍:30 Foch Road, #01-02

Charging at a coffee shop price, I have to say the owner was generous with their portion. The wagyu beef don comes with more than 8 slices of beef, Sous vide and rice, which is enough to feed the hungry me. 

The beef was slightly charred giving it a crisp outer layer, well the inner layer was still moist and had a chewy texture, however, the meat was lacking in flavour. It was bland and did not contain any sweetness of the beef. Some part of the rice was still undercooked. Luckily the egg was still runny and it gave some taste to the Don.

Overall, the Don was indeed cheap but it was lacking in quality. My opinion is to give some time for Don.档 to grow as they are still trying to adjust their menu and accommodating to the large influx of customers. Well, I heard recently they just updated their menu
