These plump scallops were slightly charred, and drizzled with the seaweed miso butter, were so so decadent. The scallops were juicy and thick, and not your neighborhood tiny scallops. Definitely worth a try and that burn in your pocket if you’re a fan of scallops!

These babies were seriously crunchy. The meat is tender and juicy. Definitely a good snack to go with drinks! Wished it was a tad more marinated and salty, but it may just be me since I’m very used to the Chinese style of Sio Bak! Definitely a good pork belly nonetheless.. the super CRUNCHY SKIN itself is worth a try!

The prawn paste smell enveloped us upon its introduction to our table. These wings were bite-sized and a great pairing for drinks definitely. They were crispy and well-flavored, yet not overly oily. My only gripe was that the chilli wasn’t spicy and tasty enough for me, but I reckon it made an edible chilli for everyone, including the non-spicy eaters!

Thoroughly enjoyed these lips-smacking ribs. These were fall-off-the-bones goodness glazed with sweet and salty barbecue and fragrant garnishes. Super tender, juicy and bursting porky flavors. Very very good 🤤

This pasta is surely very aesthetically pleasing. The garlic flavor coated every strand of pasta evenly, and boy it was very satisfying. Even though the pasta was so tasty, it wasn’t overly oily.

The Ebi definitely introduced a different texture to the pasta, but it wasn’t really noticeable. But it’s definitely still a gold ol plate of pasta!

The chicken was really tender and juicy. Quite a rare find in my opinion since this is usually the kind of dish that tastes lackluster and it’s usually there on the menu for variety. However, not this.

The chicken by itself was tasty, but in my opinion, complementing it with the mashed potatoes and roasted pumpkins bring the dish to a next level. The mashed potatoes were delicately soft and creamy. What really surprised me was the pronounced potato taste, which convinced me that this wasn’t some sort of artificial powdered mash potato. Definitely would recommend this dish!!

First impression was that this was MSG-free, so was really delighted to find that the soup was easy on the palate, yet the robust broth lingered. (But not for long, continue reading!)

The broth was infused with the fragrance of porcini and light yuzu/lemon taste. First few slurps was pleasant and had me reaching for more. However, after awhile, the taste more or less tapered off and no longer amused my tastebuds. It was a very one-dimensional taste in my opinion. Further, I was more of a Tonkotsu fan. But I didn’t regret trying, because the ingredients of the soup (mushroom and citrus) was certainly an interesting combination and worth a try. You may end up liking it!

The ramen was al-dente. I think it was some sort of wheat flour (healthier I guess?) which I enjoyed because it has a more clean bite to it. It isn’t your typical Hakata style ramen noodles, but it’s equally good in terms of the bite and the mild wheat taste.

Definitely worth a try to explore whether this bowl of Ramen is for you!

The soft shell crabs were the first thing that caught my attention. They were deep fried and extremely crunchy. It’s pretty well battered and tasty. My only gripe was that it’ll get soggy after getting soaked with the sauce! So tips to chomp these babies down first while it’s still hot and crispy!

The sauce was legit. Perhaps the cafe skeptic in me had low expectations of an Asian twist on pasta, but this chilli crab sauce satisfied my Asian taste bud. Eggy, spicy, and tangy from the lime — it was just the right balance. Especially appreciated the generous lather of eggs. Wished I had some mantous to go along with this sauce (this view was echoed by several of my friends)

Pasta was average, al-dente.

Would recommend if you’re into chilli crab and spice!

What a fun dessert! Had to drop this ball from a height onto the bowl to crack open this “piñata” dessert. While the richness of the blue colour of the icecream startled me initially, the ice cream was not as artificial tasting as I expected. It was reminiscent of earl grey and was surprisingly delicious! (Note: later found out that it was lavender custard! And realised that it does remind me of lavender... but perhaps more earl grey still) And it goes really well with the chocolate bites, and a little honeycomb. (Just a little will do — these honeycombs are really screaming diabetes!)

Definitely a good treat for some birthday celebrations or any sort of celebrations!!! They even offer you gloves to break open this piñata - how thoughtful.

The pancakes stole the show. It was undoubtedly the most beautiful piece of dish we had. They were really FLUFFY and SOFT. Drizzle some honey atop of these beauties, pair it with a berry or two with these soft pillows. The batter of the pancakes were also fragrant and not too floury - you can taste the hints of egg ones. Reminiscent of Japanese ones!!!

Would definitely recommend this stack for dessert.

The plating of the fish was already a feast for the eyes. Adorned with pico de gallo salsa and cherry tomatoes, the sauce was really savory. And the fish was really fresh and well-cooked. It wasn’t dry at all!!! We finished the entire fish - a testament to the quality of the fish.

Definitely good to order when eating w friends or family, and super reasonably priced for such a good piece of fish!!!

Oh boy the chicken was really succulent and tender. The chicken was really tasty especially the skin!!! It was so fragrant and had a yuzu glaze to them. (How I wish the whole chicken was marinated with yuzu!!!)

I really enjoyed the roasted baby potatoes and vegetables at the side too. Simple yet refreshing! Would come back for the chicken definitely!
