Everyday I’m Truffling~! The Truffle Pizza ($24) from Morettino is served with tomato, mozzarella cheese and a generous serving of truffle pesto. The truffle fragrance is quite strong, the crust in thin and the flavours complement one another well - a pretty good steal with Burpple Beyond’s one-for-one deal.

Finally checked out Martin Zwerts, the No. 1 fries from Netherlands, at Holland Village! We had the Regular Fries ($6.50) and All in One Meal ($16.90), which comes with fried meat balls, prawn fritters, chicken wings, onion rings and fries. There is a grand total of 15 sauces to choose from, and we chose the MZ Special Sauce (Onion Frite & Kerrie) and Joppie Sauce (Dutch sauce) to go with our fries. The fries are chunky, crispy on the outside and fluffy and airy on the inside - they are quite deserving of their fame! I like that the sauces are not one-dimensional and it’s a nice mix of sweet, savoury and tangy flavours. The other fried items are pretty normal but I must say that the fried chicken wings are quite good. They are well seasoned, tender and juicy, with a nice crunch on the outside. Fries-yay!

I stumbled upon Pasta e Formaggio in a quiet corner at Marina Square (#02-100A/B) and boy am I impressed! I ordered a pasta that is not commonly found elsewhere: Tandoori Chicken Aglio e Olio ($12.90). The Tandoori chicken is legitly smokey and it goes surprisingly well with the al dente linguine that is tossed in olive oil with cherry tomato, onion and lots of garlic. There is an one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond, but even without, the price point remains very affordable for the quality offered. Easily my top 3 pasta/pizza restaurant in recent times🤤

I stumbled upon Pasta e Formaggio in a quiet corner at Marina Square (#02-100A/B) and boy am I impressed! The thin-crust Pizza Marinara ($19.90) is topped with huge, succulent pieces of tiger prawns, squid, scallops and clams baked with tomato sauce and mozzarella, and it tastes as good as it looks. There is an one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond, but even without, the price point remains very affordable for the quality offered. Easily my top 3 pasta/pizza restaurant in recent times🤤

I love the Linguine Aglio Olio with Prawns ($18) from Morettino - the al dente linguine is sautéed with fresh sea prawns in a spicy and garlicky olive oil sauce - this is one aglio olio with a kick! I love how fragrant it is and of course, the fact that you can get this at a steal with Burpple Beyond’s one-for-one deal👍🏻

Brunched at Plentyfull recently and I had the Plentyfull Pancakes ($14) with chantilly cream and stewed and seasonal fruits topping ($8). The pancakes are incredibly soft and fluffy and not greasy at all. They go very well with the French butter, Canadian maple syrup, chantilly cream and fruits topping - love it! We also ordered the Carbonara ($22) to share, and it is very rich and creamy even though the pasta is tossed in egg yolk without cream. The house bacon is abit salty, but the creaminess helps to balance it out. Very pleased with brunch at Plentyfull:)!

We all have days when we want to eat a little cleaner to make up for an over-indulgent weekend😂 The Roasted Pumpkin Toast ($16) from Grids & Circles is perfect for such days - it consists of roasted pumpkin, roasted capsicum, whipped feta, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds on top of a slice of Focaccia bread. The roasted vegetables are soft and sweet and they go well with the creamy feta cheese. Though it is quite pricey for a light bite, there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond:)

I love the US Kurobuta Bone-In Pork Chop ($29) from Rookery. The pork chop is very tender, juicy and flavourful - it’s one of the better pork chops I ever had! The curly fries are well seasoned and the texture is great. To top it off, there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond - wouldn’t mind returning for this again!

I’m back at Chico Loco for dinner as there is a one-for-one deal on Burpple Beyond for mains, sides and drinks😃 The Hot Buttermilk Chicken ($13) is pretty good - the fried chicken is huge, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It goes well with the slaw, jalapeño, pickled cucumber and hot sauce mayo between two pillowy toasted sesame buns. The Roast Vegetables ($6) consist of roasted beets, carrots and cauliflower topped with a creamy cashew salsa sauce. Love how wallet-friendly and yummy this is:)

I have not been to Fish & Co in ages so I don’t remember the Seafood Platter for 2 ($45.95) being this good! The grilled prawns, white fish, mussels and calamari are flavourful, tender and fresh, and the paella rice at the bottom of the pan is thoroughly infused with the garlic lemon butter sauce and juices from the seafood. Thumbs up for the fries that stayed crispy right till the end of the meal. So indulgent🤗!

My colleague and I decided to pop by Chico Loco for lunch since we have not tried it before. The Chicken Combo Lunch Special comes with spit-roasted chicken ($23 for half, $16 for quarter), coleslaw and a choice of fries or rice. The roasted chicken is surprisingly good - it is flavourful, tender and juicy, and it goes very well with the creamy and slightly acidic Chimichurri yoghurt sauce that we picked from a selection of 5 sauces. The coleslaw consists of green papaya, cabbage, macadamia, mint and chilli, and for some reason, it has a garlicky kick and reminds me of chicken rice. The fries go very well with the spicy chipotle mayo dip as well. We also ordered Chips & Guac ($7) to share, which came with a generous portion of guacamole. Overall, the atmosphere of the fast-casual Mexican restaurant is great, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Till the next visit!

Found my favourite Piakssant flavour at Sanity Coffee! The Hawaiian Piakssant ($9) features a flattened croissant that is crispy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside, and filled with ham, melted cheese and tomato drizzled in a zingy chilli pineapple sauce. The light bite is completed with chips and a refreshing homemade achar - will be back for more!
