Some homely tastes here with nourishing dishes - my favourite is the deep fried sea bass in superior soy that is crisp at the right parts and tears apart softly too.

The chicken in mushroom broth was comforting and is a feast of mushroom. Chicken was tender and does pair well with their special chili.

The Nanping noodles was good and tasted like home, like a treasure trove with clams, prawns, and even bits of scallops.

Ofc the indispensable xiaolongbao 👍

Overall, will come back!

Both at $6.50, it's a tough choice which to go for - generous cuts and they're all well seasoned with pepper and chewy (a feat for pork chops especially). Personally prefer the more tender chicken chop and some parts crispy

Topped on the eggy fried rice that's not too greasy, this serves as a filling, savoury treat. (Ps. Look at how yellow & eggy the fried rice is)

This kopitiam has a lot of wanton noodles and I like this version, springy noodles doused in light sauce, with my favourite being the soup dumplings - light, fluffy and serves a chewy bite. For $3, it is extremely filling

This pot of creamy and rich pumpkin fish soup with little chunks of yam tastes so nourishing and hearty. I love it for it's unique pumpkin taste that makes it sweet and finished it to the last sip. For $6.90, it stands out amongst other fish soups - plus those slices of batang fish were thick and fresh.

Ps. This is just next to Bishan Park 2

New store in the AMK hood, that offers delectable dons & noodles for pocket friendly prices - I like that they also have greens & reds tomatoes that brightens up the bowl.

Grilled salmon + kimchi, with a runny egg ($8.90) paired with meekia, which reminds us of the good o indomee, and it's not too salty

Lu rou fan ($6.90), generous portions of braised meat with 1:1 ratio with the fats, though meat is on the chewier sides, we enjoyed it.

Meepok like no others for two reasons: extremely springy meepok noodles giving that extra qq chew with a satisfying serving size for $4, and how the chef is a master in cooking - cooking with that sense of urgency and precision to serve each bowl of meepok. Truly 给手 🙌

I would love to try their $4.50 abalone noodles next time too.

Protip: the drinks in this coffee shop is extra Gao (thick), I love my Milo peng, which comes with bits of Milo chunks for all chocolate lover. The coffee is equally thick.

Nestled in the middle of Bishan park 1 is Grub, who has mastered the art of serving chic food in a lush and green setting - we all love this Har Cheong Kai burger, where the prawn paste fragrance permeates from a distance away. Plus, that crunch as you sink your teeth into the juicy patty?

We can also top up to mentaiko fries (quite worth it)

I love this place and all their creative menu - we tried their annual creation: the Praclette! (Or prata coated with warm, gooey Swiss cheese, lightly doused with crowd favourite truffle oil, mushroom bits and a slice of turkey ham). Plus, that familiar Sriracha sauce! All of this seating on their renowned crispy dough base. ($9.90, ps there is a deal together with their teh tarik)

They absolutely nailed this one, with this being the fanciest prata I've ever had and combined with all the richest and best tastes around. The cheese may get hard after awhile, so savour the goodness while it's fresh and hot.

I find Swiss Cheese not too strong, hence with all the medley of flavours, doesn't overpower nor get subdued - just the right fusion mix.

Ps. This place boosts a long queue especially with the opening of Thomson East Coast Line.

Pps. Murtaburger remains my all time unhealthy indulgence.

Finally found this place! Nestled in a coffee shop amidst some industrial areas and hdbs in Marymount, it offers some very innovative noodles. This bowl of bluepea noodles is so QQ springy and consistently blue with bluepea essence, and I felt the soup tastes more tangy/ slight tinge of sour which I love. ($4.80). Plus it's unique that it comes with baby spinach. The crispy ikan bilis is also a win.

Will be back to try the other flavours- pumpkin, beetroot, spinach!

Love the filter coffees here and the choices of beans:

The Baba Simba from Kenya that is mixed with blackcurrent, fresh plums and Asian pair serves up a fruity and sour blend that is easy on the palate, and good for light coffee drinkers like me. Also v cool process of prepping the filter coffee ($7, left)

Also, tried the iced Anna Blend, which is a signature and award winning mix of cherries, black forest, dark chocolate and blueberries (from Columbia, Ethiopia and Costa Rica). Very aromatic when mixed with milk and fruity too ($5.50, right)

This cuppa matcha makes me covet for more, and when paired with lilac/white walls and tall glass windows, makes for a chill hangout (and also a good alternative to WFH with it's wifi and plugs available)

The matcha latte is very intense, bittersweet and with the right ratio of milk - not overly sweetened and just the way I like it. ($6)

It's a young team behind this cafe and it makes this neighbourhood a lil more vibrant :-)

Ps the owner highly reco the Hojicha

Y'know it's traditional when they keep brewing the sauce so it can grow it's goodness. This massive serving with the duck leg and duck wing ($7) was easily wolfed down. We love how tender it was - the skin is also jellyish soft. And the chili - I was sold by the strong vinegar tinge to it. Absolutely well paired with the duck!
