Salmon Ochazuke has a light broth, what my friend terms japanese porridge. It’s a little bit of an acquired taste and could be more for those with a light palette. I love the Tamago Sando which is a good mix of sweet and savoury with the pear sauce. The tamago is fluffy and makes a hearty sandwich despite it being just eggs. Managed to redeem one for one on Burpple beyond for the two mains. Not applicable for the pancakes though!

I’m hoping that flagwhite is able to stay in this space which is perpetually changing ownership.

Smoothie came with oat milk on default. I had the blueberry one at 8 bucks and oat milk was distinct, good for those who prefer a less milky taste. The hazelnut cake was good also and I’ve heard many reviews that they brew a mean cup of coffee.

Packed on a Sunday afternoon, I would return to try the other tarts/cakes and the sides smell pretty good as well.

Other than the legendary cheesecake which was oozing with cheese, I really liked this pulpo dish with crispy pork belly on potato foam (which basically feels like very very smooth mash) with caramalised onions. Pulpo was well cooked and pork belly was not the super fatty type. Usually something like this could border on being salty but this really wasn’t, especially with everything mixed together.

The restaurant was very thoughtful and portioned it to two portions for my friend and I.

This slab of pork chop is really cooked to perfection. Doesn’t lose the texture on the outside but super tender on the inside and melts in your mouth. Paired with pumpkin purée and busses sprouts. It’s really not easy to cook such a big slab of meat well but summer hill really does a good rendition. 42 bucks but I would pay to eat this again! No GST and no service charge here for now.

Salad with marinated tomatoes and ricotta on top. Very refreshing and the tomatoes are so sweet. Great way to start the meal! A little pricey at 16 though.

Great great burrata with great texture and really felt super fresh. Went super well with everything on the plate - the salad, the sun dried tomatoes (sweet), pumpkin and also the cured ham. Great appetizer to share between 2 to 4 people! Had the barramundi which was packed with seafood and gnocchi, chewy with a light creamy sauce.

Rubato is hidden at Greenwood Avenue but the crowd doesn’t shy away. Will be back to try more mains.

Don’t think there’s much I could complain about this. Bun was buttery and warm and the lobster came with a light creme fraiche. Much better than some other lobster rolls that I’ve tried in Singapore. Sufficient cheese on the fries and also the salad was tasty with the right seasoning.

Service was attentive as well. I think lobster roll is only served for lunch so super glad that i jumped at this treat for myself. TGIF!

I consider cedele a rather family friendly cosy place. My fav tofu miso pasta has been changed to red miso. Honestly preferred the old version which had pumpkin. This just has a lot of capsicum etc things that I don’t favour. Also felt like my linguine could be more well cooked. 😰 Not the best experience at one of my favorite chain stores but I will always give my comfort place another shot.

Back here again and a great place to chill with friends on Friday Night, not too noisy and great for conversations. I polished this dish. Chicken was not so dry this time around and I really enjoyed the brown sauce that went well with everything from the chicken to the mash.

Skip the fries which were a little blend. I’ll return for the desserts and fried chicken day!

This scallops dish is amazing. There’s some miso sauce which probably has butter in it. SUPER addictive and would have gone really well with the sourdough (but sold out unfortunately).

Came here because entertainer BUT do take note that cause of policy changes, the one for one only applies for the mains, not this plate of scallops nor any of the starters. Nonetheless, my friend really recommended this and I can tell why.

If I’m not mistaken, they serve some of the same food as Maggie Joan’s so if you’d prefer a more casual but costly vibe, Gemmills is the place to go.

Curry wok is that place that my friends and I used to frequent in secondary school when we felt rich. I haven’t returned in many years but the experience still felt as nice

Ngoh Hiang and Otah really stole the show. Otah has sooo much fish and Ngoh Hiang was wrapped with so mushrooms and carrots. The sambal packs a punch! I think we generally enjoyed everything and I’ll be back to reminisce the good old days again.

Had the tiramisu latte, pictured on the left. I liked it, wasn’t too sweet and gentle on the tastebuds. The coffee shot is an excellent place for a casual meet up with friends, cosy, not too noisy and reasonable prices for drinks and cakes. Please stay the way you are.
