A wonderful sharing platter to begin your meal. Stacked nicely with 3 tiers, it felt like the flavours got from light to heavy starting from the top. There’s kueh pie tee with some sweet shredded turnip and prawns stuffed in a crispy tart shell, and deep-fried ngoh hiang on the first tier. Pair with the refreshing, citrusy chili sauce.

Next, there were the satays paired with a slightly sweet peanut dipping sauce, and tasted rather ordinary. Probably the most memorable, were the nyonya fried chicken on the lowest tier. The crispy outer batter, was heavily spiced with turmeric. Biting off, the chicken meat within was well-marinated, flavorful and succulent. Served with keropok.

When they say it’s steamed spicy fish paste, they really mean business. Served in circular shape and wrapped in banana leaves, this classic southeast asian snack/appetizer exudes a strong ‘Lemak’ or creamy taste, which is clearly from the coconut milk that we could taste prominently. In each piece, a generous chunk of fish sat nicely in the center. You have been warned of its spiciness.

Check out the tender morsels of seafood, marinated in citrus, in the seafood ceviche. Prawns, squids, mussels and a medley of vegetables that planted an impression - Fresh. Served with tortilla chips, most welcomed by a tortilla chips lover here. A light appetizer on tastebuds to start you off the meal to come.

A sweet beginning to the lovely evening, the crispy chicken wings is an appetizer not to be missed. What caught my eye initially was the thick batter that turned out to be really crispy with an extra crunchiness. But the real reason for falling in love with this was the mesmerizing truffle maple drizzle, especially as it drips while picking up the drumlet. Despite the mild truffle aroma, the sweet maple syrup in contrast to the juicy chicken was really endearing.

So @ikeasingapore has decided to take their original fried chicken wings to another level by creating a salted egg flavour. Though we had them taken away, I was still bought over by the scrumptiousness. If you are dining in, probably even more impressive.

Embellished by a luscious coating of creamy salted egg sauce, some might feel that its richness overshadowed the original marinate of the wings, but I wouldn’t mind for the indulgence. Watch the staff toss those wings in a bowl of potentially addictive yellow goodness, sprinkled with curry leaves and sliced chili padi. Not overly creamy or custardy, it actually makes a legit picnic snack.

This is not your usual satay. Delectable marinate checked, beautiful grill checked, succulence and juiciness of chicken chunks checked, balance between chicken meat and fats checked. I usually avoid eating fats, but I found myself enjoying them here, especially coating with the thick peanut sauce that had an extra dimension of fruity sweetness from pineapple. Sprinkled with chopped peanuts and served with a side of sweet, spicy, sour, crunchy achar.

It’s the time of the year again, where merchants are coming up with local-inspired flavours. Just like Old Chang Kee’s limited time Mao Shan Wang puff.

Priced at a hefty $3.30 per puff and $6 for 2, it is advertised that it contains real Mao Shan Wang durian filling. With every 2 puffs, you get 2 free sachets of OWL Kopitiam Roast & Ground coffee.
Sad to say, I enjoyed the flaky green puff crust more than the filling, even though it was on the oily side. I don’t deny the real durian bits, but just wondering how much additional stuff in there to make it taste more like a lempok durian instead, those rolls of durian cake from Malaysia. Nope, not worth the price.

This might look ordinary, but it was one of the most memorable dishes served that evening. Every bite into the umami-packed mid wings delivered an addictive savoriness as the juicy meat, attached to the crispy battered skin, ripped off the bone easily. A rich fermented shrimp flavour tells you just how well the beautiful pinkish meat had been marinated.

I wouldn’t mind pairing it with a pint of Hippy Berliner to reduce the grease; A refreshing, sour, hoppy, fruity tasting beer inspired by traditional Berliner Weisse ales. Soured naturally by live cultures like those in a probiotic drink, I thought I even tasted a hint of lychee.

New item in the list of bar bites coming your way soon on Orh Gao’s menu! The juice bursting from each bite into the warm deep-fried mushrooms was indeed satisfying. Well-seasoned with paprika powder and a tangy garlic aioli to dip in. Highly recommended to pair with their Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, not to be missed.

Start the day off with a hefty breakfast bagel at @twomenbagelhouse. Whammer, a classic combo of bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese, smoked aioli, can’t possibly go wrong. Just look at that mesmerizing cheese pull. 😍 Paired this with the (sea) salted bagel as recommended, but it was too much of a sodium bomb since the fillings were already quite salty and there were large salt crystals on the bagel. Wouldn’t mind the overall smokiness but I would probably pair it with a seeded bagel the next time.

Nice chilling place but note the limited seating area that could get scorching hot in the afternoon.

The local traditional bakery scene is depleting with many of such old school bakeries closing down gradually. Love confectionery is one of those that’s still going strong and yes, their bakes are simple, classic, but the taste is here to leave an impression.

Even trying to pick up these slices of sponge cake from the tray was a problem as they were so soft and toppled easily. If you really encounter difficulty, the baker uncle would gladly help you with it. The interior was a little on the dry side, although there were 2 layers of fresh cream sandwiched in between. Each cake slice is topped with a thick layer of cream and topping. But the choice of toppings were of much nostalgia, such as the rainbow rice, chocolate rice and grounded peanut that evoked childhood memories. Especially the grounded peanut of a fragrant nuttiness.

Home to the first salted egg yolk croissant in Singapore, Flavour Flings expanded the number of salted egg yolk items on the menu that includes a raclettesant with added raclette cheese on this croissant, but I would still go for this classic rendition.

Buttery and flaky, the salted egg yolk croissant had nothing but a copious amount of oozy salted egg sauce. Since this was supposed to be a sweet item, it helps as the sweet salted egg filling was slightly more milky, custardy like that of a Liu sha bun. Not that I was expecting one with chili padi and curry leaves, but the thick filling could be made even better if it had a grainy texture.
