Ever since it became trendy, I haven't been a fan of Tom Yum pastas.. Simply because I've had too many that fall flat - either tasting too artificial or too watered down.

At first glance, you might think that At the Myo's Tom Yum Prawn Pasta ($12.00 nett) falls under the latter category - but you are absolutely WRONG.

I'm glad I read a review of this dish before I decided what to order (though, surprise surprise, it was a review from the year 2017!). What he said still holds true - it's a soup, as opposed to a creamy pasta. & that was a winner for me, because oftentimes I find tom yum cream pastas too damn artificial.

Despite it being a soup, it was still welcomingly milky, fragrant & harmoniously sour & spicy. I really wanted to slurp it down quickly, but I was already breaking out in a little sweat, so I had to pace myself.

The portion is pretty good - served in a deep bowl with plenty of spaghetti, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms & soup. The spaghetti was done al dente, & the prawns cooked perfectly to a nice glassy texture, with a good crunch to them. However, with their tails on, I felt they were difficult to peel in a deep bowl..

.. But I can overlook that since I enjoyed this dish so much. I am impressed.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Everton Park, At the Myo is super non-descript & almost hidden. I've always wanted to dine here, but never made it here until today.

The space isn't very large - it was about half full when I entered, with the remaining 8 spaces being reserved. I squeezed myself into a corner, thankful for being a solo diner.

Surprised to find their menu pretty extensive - I will definitely be back to try other dishes. Most likely before my 10% FavePay cashback credits expire. Which is another nice perk here!

The kimchi flavour in Chilli Crab ($15+) was strong - acidic, sour & spicy, which one would expect from a kimchi dish to begin with. Be warned: The accompanying pork belly doesn't have a crispy skin, which might disappoint some. But not me, because I'm that weirdo that peels the skin off. The meat was okay & in a sufficient quantity to match my carbs, though it was a little on the tough (but bearable) side.

In the latter, the chilli crab sauce wasn't as thick as you'd traditionally expect, but in no way does that compromise the flavours. The spice really packs a punch, & the prawns, little squid, clams & egg swirls kept me satisfied. I preferred this over the other kimchi pasta I tried, but this is probably because of my own bias really.

The Asian Flush ($15 nett) was a bit more special - the tomato cream sauce had bits of baked mushrooms & bacon in it. I honestly couldn't taste the flavours of the curry leaf, but the little bit of chilli padi had a nice subtle kick to it. The penne was done al dente & very much to my liking.

The Mi-so Sexy ($15 nett) is a simple Miso-sesame capellini with sautΓ©ed shimeiji mushrooms & onsen egg. The portion is decent, the flavours are good, but I can't imagine paying full price for this. It does feel like something I could whip up at home (which could explain why this dish was served so quickly?). Nonetheless, I'm not going to discredit it - with the 40% off I paid, I enjoyed it while it lasted.

The Salmon Belly Don ($16.90+), on the other hand, seemed to have not enough salmon slices for the (same) amount of rice that they give. I mean, there's the spoonful of juicy fish roe that explodes in your mouth when you bite into it, but somehow I feel like you get more bang for your buck with the Wagyu bowl. Then again, beef ranks so much higher than salmon on my scale, so... I guess I'm biased. Don't get me wrong, though - the salmon belly was yummy & the half-doneness in the centre was MM-MMM!

The Wagyu Don ($16.90+) was delicious! It had a fairly decent balance of grilled Wagyu beef slices to Japanese rice. The beef was not too chewy & kept me happy throughout. I inhaled everything with the amazing runny onsen egg that provides a heavenly creaminess to the dish. A great dish at such a good price point in the town area - big thumbs up from me.

Tucked away in a little corner of Blk 216 Boon Lay Ave, it was strange trying to find Bok's Kitchen because all other units on the ground floor are currently unoccupied in this new block of flats. Don't let that confuse you though; if you get lost, head towards the part of Blk 216 that is opposite Boon Lay CC- that's where you'll find them, 2 units down from a provision store.

I stepped through the doors after being welcomed in by Uncle Tan. I quite like the simple decor of the place! The menu is varied; you can find a good mix of western & fusion food alongside local breakfast delights like fried noodles & Nasi Lemak.

Ordered the Beef Rice Bowl ($12+) & Char Siew Rice Bowl ($9+), which both came with Italian Spiced Rice, a 63Β°C egg, & thinly-sliced pickled radish. I wasn't used to the pepperiness of the spiced rice, but the more I tucked in, the more I appreciated it. The egg was perfectly done, & the slices of pickled radish gave me a refreshing break from the heavily-flavoured rice. I'm undecided if I would've liked a bowl of traditional Japanese-style sushi rice better; but no doubt, this is definitely something unique.

The meats themselves: I preferred the Beef Flank Steak; but I always prefer beef over pork so consider this fair warning. The beef was tender & delicious, & not too fatty for my liking. Papa Bok's Legendary Char Siew was slightly sweet & charred, but I felt that it was nothing too special.

If you're comparing a meal here to something that you get in hawker centres, don't. You are, in part, paying more for the quiet ambiance at Bok's Kitchen, comfortable seats, & air-conditioned comfort. I can forsee myself coming here again to try the rest of the menu, since it isn't that far of a journey for me. A nice space to spend a quiet morning or afternoon by yourself or chit chatting with a friend.

Uni Pasta ($28++)
Homemade Uni Sauce Pasta with Fresh Sea Urchin

This was something unique- it did not disappoint. The sauce was epic umami, & the uni was uber fresh. I wish the pasta were slightly more al dente. But seeing as to how it wasn't soggy (just me being fussy), I'd actually still order this again.

What a mysterious place - you either head up the stairs via a secret door in the back alley, or ask the friendly folks at The Refinery to show you the way (it's hidden behind one of their shelves).

Both the Duck Confit Penyet & One Night in Tom Yum were delicious ($20++ each). The former had a great dollop of homemade sambal that paired well with the absolutely tender duck meat. The latter had chewy Japanese Inaniwa Udon in a bowl of Tom Yum Consomme, coupled with crab meat. It's served as a cold dish; I do wonder how this would've tasted as a piping hot bowl of noodle soup.

Stuff here is expensive considering how small the portions are. I could've eaten 2 mains & not be completely full. But strangely enough, after I left, I was thinking of the food for the rest of the night. Great execution, but my stomach is too big for this place methinks.

Ambience was awesome - quite lovely place to chill or go on a date. Music played in the background was excellent. πŸ‘Œ

(But I was hungry at the end of it all & walked a few streets down to eat some waffles with ice cream.)

Ps: That glass of beer was $15++. Sigh.
