Undoubtedly good soup but the fish slices were so little and tiny - for 55 dollars I wouldn’t think that this was value for money .

The fish slices were oddly shaped and most were bony without much flesh.

For this same price , you’d probably get fresher fish and double the quantity at Tian Wai Tian .

A pretty new establishment at Far East plaza which just brings such a breath of fresh air into this somewhat forgotten and outdated mall .

I sampled the original tiramisu and found it not too sweet and absolutely yummy with a pronounced alcohol and coffee taste. They also have interesting flavours like baileys . ....

I was tempted to buy one but was traveling for Business meeting .

Looks like a local start up and we should always support , shouldn’t we?

Perhaps a good option for a cny gift instead of the usual boring cookies - hahahah!

Go Tiramisu for a Teng la new year this year 😂....

Now you see me , now you don’t .

Can you spot my camouflaged cup of coffee ?

Thanks to the reviews by other bupplers, I was made aware of the existence of this quaint cafe.

The coffee was robust with a slight sourish undertone. I actually liked the pretty clay cup more than the coffee 😂. Given that it was my first encounter in a tipping cafe , it was a pretty exciting encounter for me .

The ambience was lovely especially since I managed to get the seat by the window. Strangely , I felt a tad tinge of cautiousness and tension too - perhaps it was too quiet 🤫.

The usual me would have opted for cakes with my coffee but I felt more like drinking than eating today. So it’s just me and my coffee in complete silence 😌


After a foodie friend Caecilia shared with Burpple Tastemaker @blueskiescottonclouds and I that a stall inside Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre sells her current favourite Nasi Lemak in Singapore, I decided to check it out for lunch with Burpplers @dexneo @raineliu and @jonathanteo.
We spotted “Zheng Nasi Lemak” (#01-12) the moment we entered the L-shaped hawker centre as there was a queue in front of it.
Clearly, quality takes precedence over quantity here. Because although the six sets offered (priced between $3.70 and $4.20) don’t have the fanciest of toppings, the couple who owns the stall, fry the eggs, chicken drumsticks and wings in tiny batches. Which means you get to enjoy these PIPING HOT. I’m sure you can imagine how shiok that is with the fragrant, fluffy rice and spicy sambal.

Can't believe I took so long to try out the Banana Date Loaf ($8) from @percolatecoffee!
That moist dense banana Date cake slathered with @the_hunters_kitchenette's almond nut butter with some accompanying berries and mascarpone cheese. Every element was well thought through and worked together super well!
While you are there, don't forgot to order their Curry Egg Mayo Croissant ($7) for yummy crispy buttery croissant!

Hidden gem at only $21 for these goodness​! I love the spicy Dan Dan mian (only $4.80) and I slurp it to the last drop! 😋 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Get a plate of 肉丝炒面 (Stir fry Noodles with Shredded Pork) that is overflowing with egg noodles, pork, mushrooms and veggies. 😋 I like that it is not overly oily and the egg noodles were al dente with a bite.

Get the rendang Nasi lemak ($5) with blue pea rice. available only on Tues and Sat. It’s worth every calorie.

Warm moist brownie. 1.5 inch thick. A scoop of yummy cookies and cream. Nuts included. Indulgence.

From Supreme Ramen Xiao Long Bao; a stall that is situated at Blk 46 Holland Drive that serves up Chinese Dumplings and La Mian. The Instagram profile claims that the stall is opened by a former chef of both Paradise and Crystal Jade.

Usually I am not really blown away by Chinese stalls like these in the heartlands but these XLBs are really legit — the skin withstands all the rough handling by the chopsticks without being for dense or thick; just the right proportion of skin for the size. It carries quite a fair bit of light and savoury soup inside; the dumplings eagerly burst of the soup with every bite, while the meat is pretty tender and soft to the bite. The XLBs come in a slightly larger size here than most places, and comes in sixes at $4.50 — very good value considering the quality you are getting here.

This comes with half portions of each dish, but honestly, it was filling enough to feed me for two meals. The dishes packed a punch with their spicy flavour and we were thankful for the cold drink on the side to provide some respite. #burpple
