Had the cheapest kaya toast set at 40c each thanks to klook deal! Happy to be able to start the morning with breakfast so simple and good. Live the thick slab of butter that came with each bread.

It is so worth it to get 1-for-1 ice cream at this shop. Shared this deal with my friend and each of us only had to pay $2.50. Good deal! Even better when there are interesting ice cream flavours for you to choose from. The salted egg ice cream is always a must-try and must-order for me, but this time round i decided to try something different. Chanced upon new flavours and decided to try them - white chocolate nori and parmesan cheese. Glad to say I have found my 2nd favourite flavour (white chocolate nori) which was like seaweed ice cream with white chocolate bits. So so good!

When you have cravings for mala xiang guo but can't eat spicy, this is the best place to go and one of my regular hangout spots. Super fragrantly stir fried and not too expensive. Portion for 2 pax at $26.30 and we were bursting full by then. Get the other kind of instant noodle (green in colour). Texture is different but it is good and locks the flavour in. Remember to let the cashier know to put less salt and oil. If you don't say, it is going to be too saltish and you will need to eat it with rice.

Managed to get the 1 for 1 deal that is available yesterday and today only. Got the le shrimp trio tossed ramen ($19.80++) and completed the meal ($3.20++) which included an appetiser and a drink. Braised lava egg ($1.90++) was alright - somehow not as tasty as the ones u get at ramen restaurants. Added on noodles ($1.20++) for one of the bowls but not necessary unless you are really really hungry. The soup was thick but not gao to the point where u get gelat after a while. The prawns were fresh and big, the fillings in the dumplings were generous and the ebiko prawn paste was nice. If i had to choose again, i would go for just the dumplings so i dont have to peel the shells off the prawn (getting lazy and because they don't provide wet towels). Got the braised tofu with tonkatsu sauce but tasted normal, can skip. The apple black tea is nice, though didn't expect to see it come in a form of a can drink. They had preserved vegetable soup base as well, sounded interesting. Surprisingly attracted quite a few of the older crowd today as well and had to queue for slightly more than 1hr even though we only started queueing at 1.30pm. Total bill came up to be $34.60 as the add-ons are not considered under 1 for 1.

Ordered beehoon with ngoh hiang and chicken wing ($3.20). The chicken wing is crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. Bee hoon is moist but quite bland. Will come back for the wings.

Always wanted to try this stall. Finally tried the truffile mushroom rice ($6.50) with smoked duck (add on $3). Popcorn was a nice touch though a bit lao hong. Smelt good and taste good. Portion is good and glad that i did the add on but maybe i will choose the chicken chop instead of smoked duck the next time. Smoked duck is a little too dry and tough. Loved the egg and yolk was super viscous and shiok when you eat it with the rice. Overall, not bad. Will come back to try the soba menu here.

Nice wanton mee (large - $5.50) with pork lard (self service) and boiled dumplings ($4). Worth it. Eat it with the ketchup or chilli sauce provided!

Stall at the backlane along the row of shophouses which I wouldn't enter on usual days but today, my friend introduced me to this hidden gem here. Bought the combo set (duck, sio bak, char siew) for two pax ($18) and was wowed by the quantity when it was served to us. The sio bak skin was crispy and the fat-meat ratio was just nice. The charsiew was slightly fatty and had this nice caramelised taste. Maybe we came a little too late at night so the cut that was given to us wasn't that good and some parts were tough to bite. Nothing much to rave about for the duck, can skip it. Vegetable was drizzled with oyster sauce and had a good proportion of lard in it. Simple and nice, but the price at $5 was a little hard to swallow. (The menu wasn't given to us so we only knew the price when the receipt came.) Bill came out to be $30.50 together with 2 portion of noodles and homemade barley water. Will come back to eat the siobak and maybe the char siew (and hopefully they give me a better cut next time).

Finally got to try Uncle Kiisu and yep it was good. Had the burpple 1-for-1 and tried the main dish + appetiser. For me, the main star was the #blackfriesday ($10.80+) - cheese fries + squid ink cheese and mentaiko. Best part was when we mixed the gravy together and scooped up one spoonful of gravy and ate it together with the fries. We both said "Shiok!" at the same time 😂 Interesting dish and definitely the best buy. We also ordered #CharcoaledPork ($8.80+). The pork collar was tender but didn't have the wow factor. We also ordered #Chahanunagi ($21.80+) - unagi with wok hei garlic fried rice. Sadly, didn't taste much wok hei and garlic wasn't strong enough, which meant that the rice wasn't fragrant and also tasted bland unless you eat every bite with the unagi. Would come back to try the wok hei porridge and order the #blackfriesday again. Total bill came out to be $35.90 for 2 pax. Worth it with that portion and excellent service given by the waiters.

One of the best pratas I have had. Ordered the egg prata ($1.60) and it came out crispy and hot. The prata was flavourful and not too oily. Will come back here again if I have a car.

Breakfast for today - B2 menu ($5) which includes macaroni soup with ham, fried egg, bread with butter and cold luo hanguo. Shiok ah, especially when you dip the soft fluffy bread into the macaroni soup. Macaroni soup is good too. Come here if you are around the area, you won't be disappointed! The fish belly porridge my friend tried was also very appetising and the youtiao bits were crunchy with generous portion of the fish. The fish was also special in a way as it was slightly panfried. Only minus point was there were bones in the fish. Otherwise, it is better than all the stores out there.

There is always something new in the Flower Dome. With Entertainer 1-for-1, it is worth a visit to dine at Pollen Terrace, followed by free access into the dome and enjoy the floral exhibits.

The beef cheek is extremely tender, complementing the risotto ($34++). Ordered a pot of Bavarian Mint tea ($8++), which also happens to be yellow in color. The dome is cool on the inside but the sun is shining in from the outside. Don't worry, it will still be a cooling dining experience.

It's extremely crowded on Sunday afternoons. Reservations highly recommended.
