Must show off my first dibs into this great piece of carbohydrate.

Can't wait for their grand opening on this Friday at Clarke Quay (minus the queue, huhu).

Besides the usual, we tried their porridge this time round. Century egg with pork porridge (SGD6.80++) was smooth and flavourful, but it's quite a small bowl though.

Added $2 for the option of thin crust. The combination of classic pepperoni and meatballs w peppers, olives and mushroom on top of charcoal baked thin crust.. 😋😋😋

[Muslim-Owned] Big Bowls Project is a healthy rice bowl stall nestled in the prominently rustic-looking Amoy Street Food Centre, located a couple of minutes away from Exit G of Tanjong Pagar MRT station. It’s impressive to consider that they’ve only opened for over a month, but they’re already riding success in the the fast lane.

In the poky stall they operate in, they work relentlessly in their fleeting operating hours (11:30am to 2:30pm) to get all orders out. They only have four main items on the menu, all of which are of rice bowls that include sliced cucumbers and cherry tomatoes as well as Norwegian Salmon fillets, underpinned by a bed of jasmine brown rice.

Their Mentaiko Salmon Bowl was generally up to par in terms of quality. The salmon fillet was moist and tender, with the torched mentaiko elevating it with a whisper of the salty-savoury, oceanic flavour. I must say though, that the onsen egg was particularly well done. It was rotund, with the whites cooked until set, and it boasted a satisfying, characteristic jiggle. A runny yolk awaits you underneath the shroud of whites, which I daresay was the ultimate highlight of this dish. Onsen eggs (i.e. slow-cooked eggs at low temperatures) turn out very differently even with a degree celsius of difference, and that’s why I think that whoever made mine nailed it!

I do think that more could be done to maximise the impact of this dish and their concept because right now — they’re pretty promising, but the concept feels a little cookie-cutter. Their Muslim-Owned status and geography lend them a gush of appeal, but they are ephemeral and the reality is that this concept remains largely commonplace in the eyes of many foodies.

Currently, they’re acquiring new customers fast, so they’re going to have to plan for the journey ahead, which is mainly finding solid ways to retain their customers with a cutting edge. I look forward to seeing what they have in store in the future, especially since they’re growing by leaps and bounds! (7.4/10)

We tried the all in one boat ($6.5), Rice Rolls with fried dough sticks ($6.5) and fresh prawn roll with egg. The all in one boat comes in a smaller portion than expected but is very thick in texture - much thicker than those I had in HK. Checked with colleagues who went last week and it could be the issue today only as it wasn’t like this before. However, there is a lot of ingredients included so quite filling for us.
The rice rolls with fried dough sticks is bigger than expected. The fried dough sticks is not crispy enough but not bad. The prawn roll with egg (and veg) is more on the sweeter side, probably due to the soya sauce. But i would say 3-4 people should share one rice roll. It is a bit too much for us. I had a taste of the HK milk tea that my colleague bought. It is too sweet for me and not authentic - they use jasmine tea rather than english breakfast tea I believe.

Much raved about warabi but seriously dont see what's so good abt these. Was expecting melt in the mouth just like those in Japan but was utterly disappointed and i have tasted better ones even in sg. -

I was coming to terms with not ever having the Bear Paw Anmitsu again after the visit at The Cathay last year. Yet, you are back with a bigger space and more impressive tableware.

Maybe it's a second chance for me to get that paw dessert now. But that's after I try the new stuff on the menu.

Most dishes are cooked with love and care, so you have to be patient for your food to be prepared. That said, the wait can be long, so consider elsewhere if you are rushing.

Everything is good here, but your attention gets turned towards the tableware on many occasions because they are either too damn pretty or too damn cute.

They have a less spicy option for people adverse to too much chilli but it's still as delicious with the crunchy beans and silky smooth noodles adding welcome texture.

They recently moved to a bigger sized outlet in Far East but thankfully the food is still as good as ever

Said to be the best tau sar pau in Singapore, but I think I've had better ones! Though this wasn't too bad, fluffy and filled with smooth red bean paste (which was slightly oilier than the usual kind tho, such that it didn't really stick to my teeth). But a tad too pricey for my liking at $2.50 per bun. I can buy cheaper handmade ones at Hawkers at a fraction of the price!

Go big or go home, they said. And big is definitely the way to go here, because big gets you a fat & fluffy bao dripping with juices. There's (half) an egg, mushrooms, Chinese waxed sausage, and chunks of chicken and pork in there. It's a little sweeter than the usual, but that's partly why I like it.

Apart from a variety of handmade baos like char siew, kong bak pau, red bean, etc, there are also interesting variations of dim sum such as the Century Egg Siew Mai ($1.80) in the background. Regular and salted egg versions also available. Tastes pretty decent, but definitely not the highlight here. Save your calories for the super big bao & more Jalan Besar eats instead.

From Quality Kuih, possibly one of the very few Muslim stalls at Chinatown Complex Market. They serve quite a variety of Kuih Kuih including Ondeh Ondeh, Kueh Kosui and even a durian rendition of this.

The Pandan mousse is probably one of the smoothest I have ever come across (it's so fragile that it gets squished by the plastic bag while I tried to push it out); all that on top of firm glutinous rice layer at the bottom that gives a light hint of savouriness. It's probably one of the most substantially-sized Kueh Salat around, considering a piece that's the size of two usually costs $0.80 here.

Her "Creamy Goma Salmon Bowl with Avocado". Gossiping about little one's school outing with the classmates today. The mothers that went all 'gossip' about the kids and the fathers are then updated. 😛
