The 3 lamb shanks were quite tender but the meat was still a bit difficult to get off the bone. The sauce, however, was really good! It was piquant in a good way. The steak was also quite good because it was not overcooked but still a bit chewy.

The duck leg that came was served confit-style but the meat was really stringy and dry! It was so tough that it was hard to get through.

The food here was mediocre, to say the least. The moment we walked in, no one greeted us and we sat at a table in the middle of the ghostly empty restaurant for a while before we were noticed. The sole waiter then finally gave us a menu without a word. While we were ordering, the waiter kept pushing us to order more, to the point that it almost got uncomfortable...?

As for the food, the feta cheese spring rolls were quite tasty but it's quite hard to get deep fried cheese wrong.

This dreamy ice cream parlour is originally from Australia and inspired by the seaside town of Okinawa in Japan. The result is pastel-themed soft serve concoctions where sea salt is their only constant flavour, and has more than 100 rotating flavours that you can blend with your sea salt ice cream.

The ice cream here is very milky and tastes almost... Fresh. The salty taste of the blue sea salt flavour was apparent enough to taste overwhelming on its own, but also mild enough to blend with the another ice cream flavour. Regrettably, I feel that the bubblegum flavour did not really go well with the sea salt, but it was a fun experience at this colourful little booth with one table.

Didn't actually dine here bc I was told that the burpple beyond deal was not available because "that deal was from a long long time ago", and that "we've been trying to contact burpple about this". Although Burrple states that this deal is until 30 Sep 2020.

Either burpple hasn't checked up on this merchant, or they're not holding up on their end of the contract.

Anyway, the waiter who told us this was very polite and apologetic about it, and even helped us check with management twice about it. I know it's not the waiter's fault, but management has really got to get their *stuff* together when they're putting out blatantly false advertisements to beguile patrons to their uninhabited bar.

This high tea was really enjoyable. Each sweet treat was carefully crafted and most of them included surprises inside. For example, I got to savour rose and chrysanthemum flavoured jelly within the pretty pink mousse tarts.

The savoury bites in the bottom two plates were also quite tasty, but I thought the scones could have been less bready and more warm.

What I really appreciated here was the quiet, grand ambience that contrasted heavily with the noise in the adjacent Bugis Junction. The service was also accomodating and impeccable.

I love fried chicken and I love cheese, and wasn't afraid to give my arteries a good clogging. |

Verdict: It did not disappoint! The chicken "buns" were made of tender boneless chicken thighs. They were really moist on the inside yet still crispy despite being slathered with BBQ sauce on the inside of the burger. The fried mozzarella patty was much thicker than what I was expecting, since this burger is only 90c more than the normal double down. You can really enjoy the incredibly satisfying taste of stringy cheese oozing all over your burger. |

My only gripe is that it's very oily. I mean, I get that everything is deep fried but they could've at least dabbed the meat and cheese with a towel. The thing was too oily and I couldn't finish the whole thing in one sitting. | ®️: 8/10 | . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We had travelled so far to get here from downtown Bangkok, and this ice cream was really refreshing and cheap, too!| We've come so far since CB, extended CB, and phase 1! I can't believe I'm going to be free again and I can't wait to start (safely) trying out different foods in restaurants again! 🙌 | . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

🍣If I recall, the sashimi bowl was around ¥2,000 while the torched sushi was only around ¥1,200. It was SOOO worth it and delicious, we came back the next day to get more! |

Because the menu was all in Japanese, we just ordered the specials because those had pictures next to the text. 😂 The sashimi bowl is actually an overflowing selection of raw cuts nested on a hill of ice. On top of the usual salmon and tuna sushi, this selection includes swordfish, yellowtail, umi, sweet shrimp, and crab. The seafood all tasted extremely fresh and nothing like I've ever tasted in Singapore. This was the very best sushi that I had ever had in my two trips to Japan. |

As someone who does not usually eat sashimi, the torched platter really blew my socks off. The flamed aftertaste blended beautifully with the seafood and I could sink my teeth through the nigiri easily because everything was so incredibly fresh. |

The shop itself is located near Kuromon Market but in an unassuming alley that took quite a lot of walking down the wrong streets to find. Once you find it though, you still have to wait even longer as you join the queue outside. Inside, you sit in very cramped high chairs against the counter and get to watch the sushi chef in action. If there is space, you might even get to go to the second floor where there are tatami mats and low tables your group can dine at. This is an absolute joy to dine at and I highly recommend it! | ®️: 10/10 | {Btw the geotag is wrong bc I can't find the location on insta but a quick Google search of Toki Sushi will bring you the correct result}

🍛 This is the deluxe chirashi don for around $50, but my only regret is that I should've gone for the super deluxe, which was double of this.

It was a hidden gem tucked away in a small alley. Their chirashi dons include generous, succulent portions of any chirashi topping you could dream of, including umi and sweet shrimp. They give you both quantity and variety so I think it was really worth it despite the high price point. Highly recommended! . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is hands down the best salted egg sotong I've ever eaten. The salted egg they use here is gritty because they use actual salted eggs. They don't just use some powder to make a dilute sweet sauce for these babies -- this dish is dry and that keeps the sotong crispy. Also, the sotong that they use is fresh and springy, giving you a generous amount of texture with every bite! .

KEK still offers takeaways and deliveries now! . . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

🍗.| The sauces pictured here are liquid gold and cool ranch, with the former being much tastier, if my memory doesn't fail me. The many sauces are their main selling point but other than that, I really don't see how this was worth it, as the chicken pieces were really small and I wasn't full from eating this with a friend. |

Currently, they have a 1-for-1 promotion for burgers, 8pcs wings, and chicken quesadillas if you takeaway from their Punggol, Tampines, or Bugis outlets. This lasts only until this Sunday, though! | ®️: 5/10| . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm beginning to finally realise that their chewy, springy self-made pastas are my favourite and their fish and chips are hard to beat, too. 😙 ®️: 10/10 for this meal, especially with their 50% off deal this May! . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
