I ordered Butter Bunny ($14.90) which basically a slider which contained smoked salmon, smoked duck & chicken cutlet. I find that the meat is not bad but the burger bun has been toasted too long. The burger bun is too hard to enjoy. If they can toast the burger bun a bit lesser, it would be great.

Good thing all is nett price without GST & service charge. I booked via Eatigo hence 50% off hence only paid $7.45 for my meal

After seeing all the advertisement regarding this stall that was opened by an ex-Ritz Carlton Chef, I decided to give it s try. I ordered the Ma-La Pasta with Batter Chicken ($6.90) & Mentaiko Fries ($4.90).

The Ma-La Pasta has the numbness just like how a 麻 it should be. However, It does not have the flavour and spiciness 辣. Also, the chicken accompanied with it is small. They compensate by having more of the pasta instead to fill your stomach with carbohydrates. It would prefer if they reduced the amount of pasta and increase the portion of chicken.

The Mentaiko Fries is crispy and it has a very unique taste in the batter which is probably their secret recipe.

Overall, this store is a rare find in a hawker centre and would try their other mains in the future such as their Cornflake Chicken.

My friends and I was around Vivo City and I suggested Poulet as it is Christmas Day and since Turkey is expensive, we shall get Chicken instead. My friends & I shared the French Roast Chicken with Mushroom Chardonnay Sauce ($30.90).

The Chicken is moist which is not bad. The sauce is very creamy which is very delicious. It is the best mushroom sauce I've tasted. However, $30.90 for a whole chicken with no side is quite pricey. To get the side which consist of shoestring fries & vegetables, it would be $36.90 instead. I believed that $30.90 should consist of side without paying the additional $6 for it.

Overall, the dish is not bad but can be pricey.

It was my friend's birthday celebration and we decided to have dinner at Black Tap.

We ordered 2 x The Old Fashioned ($22 each) , The California ($23) & The Greg Norman with fries changed to house salad ($26).

I had the Old Fashioned and it is great. The onion is caramelised nicely and the mushroom was given in generous amount. The beef patty tasted great too. One of my friend ordered the Greg Norman which is waygu beef patty and it is great too. Another of my friend had The Californian which is turkey patty. At first, I told that it would be dry and hardly and flavour. However, I was dead wrong and the turkey is moist and the patty is delicious. It can even compete with the beef patty.

To end our meal, we had the Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake Sake ($22). The served a slice of cheesecake and the top of the shake. However, I was kind of disappointed that the peppermint is those Christmas Candle type. I was expecting those peppermint herb instead. The cheesecake on top is oreo cheesecake and the milkshake is vanilla. I don't see the Chocolate anywhere. I would say it is not bad but do be reminded to share it with other people instead of ordering it one each as you wouldn't be able to finish. Initially, we ordered The Cookie Shake too but they missed it out. Hence, we asked them to cancel it as we are not able to finish the shake that was served to us. It is a blessing in disguise that they missed keying in our order.

Overall, it is a good experience and to try once in a while.

Ordered Hamburger ($13) with All the Way topping. All the way consist of Steak, BBQ & Hot Sauce which the cashier said having all the sauces will tasted weird and recommend me to choose only one sauce. I opt for the Steak Sauce. You may also get extra for each of your topping at no extra cost.

It can be messy eating the burger. After having my first bite. The patty juice oozed out from the burger and drenched my hand. The patty is cooked to order hence explained the juice. The beef patty is moist and not dry. I would say it is not bad and can compete with beef burger in restaurant. It is a sinful meal and can make a grown man who is an average full without the need to order fries or drink. Soft drink is free flow for $5.

Peanut is also free to take as much as you want. The peanut can be quite salty.

Overall, it is not bad but unhealthy as they used peanut oil. I would prefer Shack Shake as it is minimalistic.

After hearing rumor that it was going to close for good during the Taman Jurong Market renovation, I thought I have missed to ever trying again.

However, when I learned that it was going to be reopened on November, I'm glad that it is still there and decided to try it on my off day.

I first ordered their Butternut Chicken Pizza ($6.90). Like what they say, it is the thinnest pizza crust ever. The sauce they use although I don't know what it is (probably their secret recipe), but it was delicious. The pizza crust is so thin that it is like eating a biscuit. I prefer my pizza crust to be those average thick one so it will be good if they offer thick pizza crust as an option. Do give their pizza a try and you will not regret it.

Still wanting to try more of their dishes, I ordered the Chicken Spaghetti Alfredo Sauce ($6.90). The grilled chicken is tender and flavourful and the skin is crispy. It is so delicious. The Alfredo sauce is not bad but can be jialek. Maybe I will order either a different sauce or buy their wedges & coleslaw set next time.

Overall, it is a unique and delicious meal in a hawker centre.

Brought for my friends to Collin's today and I would say it is almost good experience.

We ordered Chicken Chop ($15), 1/2 Roasted Chicken ($15), Roasted BBQ Pork Ribs 1/2 Slab ($17) & US Beef Short Ribs ($19).

The Chicken Chop that I had has crispy skin and the meat still tender. The sides have aglio olio, salad drenched with olive oil & the corn which can easily separate from its husk. This overall of the dish is simple yet delicious which is why I heard lots of rave reviews about Collin's.

My friends who ordered the 1/2 Roasted Chicken & Roasted BBQ Pork Ribs 1/2 Slab, which I tried a bit, is delicious too.

However, the friend who ordered the US Beef Short Ribs, the most expensive among us, was a disappointment. The beef is very dry & salty which indicates overcooked. They never asked my friend for doneness level which seems like the way they severed it is as what my friend received to other customers. If that is so, I would suggest to remove this dish out of the menu.

Overall, I would say it is fairly good experience minus the US Beef Short Ribs.

Also, OCBC is having a dining deal if you spend a minimum $60 (excluding GST & service charge) and pay using OCBC debit/credit card, there is 10% off your menu which helps to burn less of the hole in your pocket. It is valid till 31 Mar 2020.

Ordered the Cheeseburger ($17.80) which really looked like those Cheeseburger you will get in a good truck of America. It is true blue American style burger.

However the Cheeseburger is ala carte and having additional side dish of fries cost ($5.50). If the fries is part of the side dish as a meal, it would be at least more affordable.

I'm additional, they served it in a doggy bag which is kind of weird for a restaurant to do so. I know they trying to make it like how it is served in America but we are dinning it at a restaurant. I would suggest to provide proper utensils & cutleries or maybe revamped the restaurant to be like a food stall.

This is the longest I have waited for food after being seated and order taken. What's more, is not that they are a crowd or anything. Waited an hour plus for a medium rare steak which is just average.

They could have cooked all the same type all at once (all the burger patty), but they did not do so.

Given the bad experience, I doubt I will come back again.

After hearing my friend recommendation, I decide to give Chic-a-boo a try. I'm glad to say, it does not disappoint. For $8.90, we were about to get 2 piece chicken, 2 sides & a drink. They use fresh chicken instead of frozen. Their sides were great as well. For a price of $8.90, it is almost equivalent price to KFC 2 piece meal but of a better quality.

I would go for Chic-a-Boo for KFC all day. I do hope that they opened an outlet in the West side for Westies like me to enjoy.

It was my first time trying Fish & Co. the chips was hot and crispy, the chicken is flavourful and the scallop is scorched with cheese on it. I would say it is a decent meal.

However, do take note this is not wallet friendly. The price of what I ordered is $20.90++ ($24.66 nett) which is on the pricer side.

Even though Nando has being opening at multiple outlets, I have never tried it yet until today when one of my friend suggested to have Nando.

The chicken was fresh and meat fell of from the bones easily. It implies that they use fresh chicken and not frozen. The chips were acceptable.

They had multiple peri peri sauce but they all taste similar to me and it is quite salty. One basic sauce which I think they should have but lacking is chili sauce.

Ultimately, it is a good try.
