The famous green chilli chicken rice at Sims Drive Hawker which got Popular in Year 2020 after circuit breaker period!🐤🐥

Perpetual long queues at this stall! Was lucky that there was only a short queue of 5 ppl on Xmas Eve day ✌🏻

Was very intrigued by how this would taste like. It turned out to be quite spicy for me even though it was green and not red chilli. The grilled chicken is very well marinated and I liked how big the chicken leg portion was! Rice wasn't the typical Hainanese style chicken rice but more of the coconuty flavoured rice taste.

Note: no crispy keropok is given if you takeaway the order

I will say do try this at least once in your life! I'm just curious why there are no other stalls in Singapore replicating this same dish yet.

Seafood Soup Pao Fan! This place got Popular last month, being advertised as the ex-jumbo seafood chef stall, with paofan going as cheap as $6! When I arrived on a Saturday late aftn, I saw a snaking long queue and got a shock. But turns out the long queue was for Ipoh Tuck Kee Son which was situated in the same coffeeshop! Hehe not sure if we were just lucky, but there was no queue for the paofan today! Managed to get our bowls immediately :)

Pao Fan to me was basically seafood / fish soup with white rice + sprinkles of crunchy fried rice puffs.

🍚mixed seafood soup ($7): comes with 2 prawns, fried fish, slice fish and lala
🍚mixed fish soup ($6): Same as above less the prawns

All bowls come with bitter gourd and fried egg floss as well! I like the soup broth. It was more 浓 than typical fish soup broth. I also especially like the tangy thai-sauce-alike chilli given to accompany the seafood soup. Prawns were fresh and not mushy at all! Plus point was that the prawns were already peeled! 🦐

Will recommend one to drop by to try this stall!

(There are 2 other paofan stalls in the bugis-lavender area. Will be trying them in the coming months to compare hehe)

Visited curious palette a second time wanting to try more dishes! However, we visited at 9+am where only the breakfast items were served (lunch mains only start at 11+am), and the items to choose from were quite limited. Ended up getting the curious big breakfast ($26+ and pulled pork roast ($21.9++) I must say both dishes were super meatyyyy. The pulled pork was more of cooked Chinese style with shredded carrot and cabbage and sprinkled with fried shallots. I must say I have had nicer pulled pork roast elsewhere in the west 🤪 as for the curious big breakfast, it was a good choice because of the wide selection of items given -toast, baby potatoes, bacon, pulled pork, mushroom, egg, baked beans and salad. The curious big breakfast also seemed to be the popular choice for breakfast.

First time dining at Arteastique Depatio 123 since they rebranded from the formal arteastiq! No more art jamming availabile at the plaza sing outlet now..

👉🏻 Mushroom soup ($12++): when I had my first scoop, the first thought that came to my mind was "wah why so salty!! They purposely want to salt and thirst me out coz I never order water ah?"Haha water here isn't complimentary. Thought perhaps it was the top layer of soup with salt not mixed well. But even after mixing the soup well, it was still salty all over. But ok apart from the saltiness, I like the mushroom soup texture. And the "looks slightly chaotah" butter bun that came with it was quite delicious
👉🏻 Squid ink pasta ($16++): for some reason I kept thinking it was squid ink pasta with scallops. Because the old menu used to be scallops (3 scallops). So when the item got served, I had to double read the small lines on the menu, and yup, it is now served with squid. Was quite astonished by the small number of squid rings given - 5 little squid rings? And I'm sorry to say, but the squid was tasteless and kinda rubberish. The pinkish bonito flakes and tobiko were in such small amount i could barely taste them. and the only butter safron cream that I could see is the speck at the corner of the plate. Lol can't taste it anywhere at all.

Sorry to say that I was slightly disappointed with the meals here. Maybe their speciality to order here is still their tea. Their company is called "the art of tea" for a reason haha. I was actually eyeing their lychee oolong iced tea.. but it was a pricey $7.8++ (haha I proceeded to gongcha right after the meal to get a lychee oolong aloe Vera at only $3.3!😜)

Second time visiting Hopii. Got the special series!

🌟 Pine grapefruit ($5 for large): I super love this. Pink grapefruit pulp made it sweeter. Base was green tea. Got 25% sugar level and it was sweet enough for me

🌟 Mango lemonade ($5 for large): great thirst quencher! Similarly, 25% sugar level was enough. Super refreshing drink! No mango pulp in this drink though.

🌟 Steamed baby seabass with lemongrass broth ($22): the lemongrass taste was v fragrant. Along with fresh slices of seabass. Heartwarming meal. But between this and the pan fried red snapper, I will pick the pan fried red snapper

Second time back at PERCH because it is sooo good!

🌟 Grilled Australian Pork Jowl ($23): have been wanting to try this since the first visit but gave it up in favour of the fish and duck earlier. this pork jowl totally doesn't have any porky smell! It is sooooo tender we felt that we were eating grilled chicken! Dining companions ho didn't know what was ordered also immediately assumed it was chicken lol. The only part about this dish that I don't like is the braised red cabbage because non-veg eater 🤣

Finally got to try Chicha San Chens's osmanthus oolong mango tea! The first time I ordered it through foodpanda (because of shopback promo), a wrong order was delivered and I got ding dong milk tea instead, when I don't drink milk tea! :(

Fast forward many months later, got the chance to try it finally! Added konjac jelly to the drink. Very refreshing thirst quenching drink! Although the osmanthus taste was being overpowered by the strong mango pulp taste. Love the chewy konjac jelly.

Finally ticked off Bakery Brera from my list of to visit food places!!

They are located near farrer road mrt. Combine it with an exercise session to nearby botanic / lornie nature corridor / macritchie reservoir!

When I stepped into the stall, all the baked goods were screaming "buy me buy me!" to me! And im very much a croissant / puff pastry person. I ate them for every breakfast meal when I went for a work trip in Paris (because it was the cheaper food and I loved it)! Felt as if I was back in Paris in this small shop located at the first floor of HDB. But then, the prices here are more pricey compared to typical Singapore breakfast standard. So I could only afford two pastries 😅

Dine in (3 small tables outside the shop) and requested them to heat up the pastries for us. Swipe right to see our cruffin opening ceremony video 🤣

🥐Matcha cruffin ($5):It was my first time trying a cruffin and I quite liked it! The matcha lava wasn't too bitter for me. Just nice. But yep the price tag guys

🥐Kouign-aman ($4.8): got this instead of the Brera's Kouign-aman ($5.5) because of the price comparison. I must say this kouign Aman is more crispy than tiong Bahru bakery's? We could also finely peel each layer by each layer to eat it

Paid a visit to George Town Tze Char and Craft Beer!

Lovely place along the Singapore river. Best to visit in the evening as it gets hot in the daytime.

Thai curry fishead sponsored by the restaurant for their FB giveaway campaign~

💫 Signature thai curry fish head ($25+): really interesting take on the fish head curry! Slightly sourish and spicy. There is sweet pineapples in there which went well with the fresh fish!
💫 Penang Thai Style Squid ($15+): crispy fried squid and I quite like the sweet spicy sauce that was drizzled on it! Squid wasn't too rubbery.
💫 Homemade crispy prawn roll ($10+): my favourite order at tzechar stalls. This was good as well. Comes served with the typical sweet sauce for heizou. You can also request for the spicy sambal chilli sauce if you like things hot
