Places That Left A Lasting Impression

Places That Left A Lasting Impression

Curating a list of special places that not only left a lasting impression but definitely worth returning again. Not limited to just my favourite hawkers, but also cafes and restaurants in Singapore and around the world! List was started on 15 August 2018 and all photos are added thereafter.

Even before the first course was served, we were already very impressed with the amuse-bouche/canapés and my favourite has got to be the cherries with foie gras mousse followed by the octopus and ikura on a seaweed cracker. Each of these one-biters seeks to whet your appetite and serve as a platform for the first course.

And fortunately during this trip, I managed to squeeze in some time for this and I highly recommend you to do that and you will not regret it. You get to choose what you want added into the hotpot (180 THB) such as beef slices, braised beef, beef balls, entrails etc and they will come in a fire pot that’s heated by charcoal. The broth has a herbal beefy flavour with a strong hint of garlic that instantly comforts the soul from the first slurp. With the addition of the morning glory vegetables, it provides an additional crunch and even helps to trap some soup within.

Though slightly expensive for the normal Thai stir fry by the streets, this is a hidden gem that I would gladly pay for. As the name suggest, it comes with a generous amount of crab meat that’s stir fried with rice. The wok hei aroma instantly hits you as this plate arrives and I highly recommend you add a sunny side up to go along with it. Equally impressive is the homemade nam jim seafood sauce that not only packs a fiery heat, the tanginess from the lime cuts through the intense wok hei to balance out the flavours.

Combining the flavours from both India and Thailand is by no means an easy feat, but after feasting through the Tasting Menu (3200 THB) of over 13 courses, I was clearly surprised and mind-blown the majority of the time. The dish that defines the restaurant is aptly named Corn, which took centrestage as my best dish of the evening, was a plate of grilled young corn with corn milk. Prior to this, I was kinda skeptical to how the chef is able to make a humble ingredient like corn shine, and she has managed to achieve it. The entire dining experience was a rollercoaster journey as you will be hit with familiar and unique flavours that you would not have thought of getting from the name and look of the dish. It was definitely worthy of the star and congratulations to Chef Arora for the Asia’s Best Female Chef 2019 accolade.

The Chen’s Original Spicy Dry Noodles ($14) are handmade in-house and tossed in a minced meat peanut sauce that’s so good that one portion is never enough.

A must-order whenever you are there, the stir fried tofu that’s cooked in a hot Szechwan pepper meat sauce is presented in a claypot and goes hand-in-hand with a bowl of white Hokkaido steamed rice. With the right balance of spiciness and numbness, this is an amazing dish that you’ve got to try to understand the hype.

This dessert has underwent a revamped from the previous rendition and this time round, it comes with peanut butter that has the texture of a meringue, pandan kaya sorbet and toasted bread. The final curtain call are the petit fours whereby each guest gets a trio of salted egg macaroon, madeleines and a jackfruit mochi.

This time round, however, both the entrees were spectacular with the New Zealand blue cod with “crispy scales” providing the seafood role while the Iberico pork jowl brings the meat to the table. The blue cod is served with Hokkaido scallop with a slight twist from the usual in that a laksa sauce is served to bring up the local flavours. For the pork jowl, it comes with white asparagus and garlic leaves with a black garlic sauce which has a mellower and sweeter flavour as compared to regular garlic.

For this season, one of the appetizers is a Gillardeau Oyster dish. However, as I do not take oysters, Chef Jason has specially replaced it with Maine lobster. Topped with cucumber, yuzu kosho, mint, crème fraiche and the most delightful Kristal de Chine caviar, each mouthful brings a well-balanced wave of brininess and crispness to open up your palate. Each of the appetizer plays a complementary role to each other, to bring across the flavours of sourness, savouriness and sweetness to whet your appetite for the entrees. These courses definitely set the stage right for what’s to come next in the entrees and desserts for @shootandspoon celebratory birthday lunch.

Thanks to the excellent recommendation by @ieatishootipost who recently blogged about his visit to Mr. Biryani that we have come to know that our “nasi briyani" is more of a pulao with a Malay influence and usually served with a thick curry gravy as opposed to the authentic dhum “biryani”, which is from Hyderabad. In this biryani, the basmati rice shines through with the addition of ghee and masala spices, and the marinated meat is cooked together with it.

The Hyderabad Chicken Dhum Biryani ($9) here was so good, probably one of the best that I’ve even eaten, that we will definitely return again sometime soon. To make this dish, fresh chicken is first marinated with ginger garlic paste, spices and mint, and then cooked with the Basmati rice and garnished with coriander and fried onions. Every mouthful is an explosion of flavours with the fluffy rice that has been perfumed with the spices and the chicken that is fork tender. You do not need any curry gravy to go with it, as it is already so good on its own. Truly a memorable dish.

Besides the biryani, we also ordered the Palak Paneer ($9) and it nothing that we have ever tried before. We would usually order this cottage cheese cooked in creamy spinach gravy whenever we dine in an Indian restaurant but we didn’t expect this dish from this place to be so good. Perfect pairing with some naan bread.

What I had yesterday, the Beef Marmalade Cheeseburger ($20) from Meat Smith, definitely falls into that category of an excellent burger. Even more so, it is one of the more memorable ones that I’ve had recently. It’s like the Burger Gods have decided to matchmake Meat Smith’s original cheeseburger with Burnt Ends’ beef marmalade and bestowed this awesome creation upon us.

Also on Burpple Beyond, there is a choice of a 1-for-1 meats item from the menu and you can choose from either the Nashville Chicken ($24), Pork Ribs ($28) or Beef Brisket ($32). We tried both the chicken and pork which turned out executed very very well, especially Apple cider glazed pork ribs that was smoked for 3 hours. It was packed full of flavours and fall-of-the-bone tender.

Stepping into Sun Lok Noodle House, you will probably feel that it’s one of those neighborhood mall’s eatery, with a basic interior setup that does honest and comforting homecooked food. However, both of us were truly surprised with the Fried Hor Fun with Egg and Seafood ($11). The hor fun had a deep and strong wok hei aroma, complemented by the slippery smooth egg mixture and the medley of seafood such as prawns, sliced fish and scallops. If there is one dish that truly stands out and gives you a reason to return, this wat dan hor fun has got to be it. The other dim sum dishes that we have tried were nothing fantastic or mind-blowing but decent enough for a family meal.
