Ordered the Big Bello - vegetarian burger with grilled portobello in balsamic vinegar, caramelised onions, grilled pepper, pineapple, melted aged cheddar, smoked chipotle sauce, on a honey oat bun.
.
Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much - but boy, was I wrong!! Everything combined so very well - it was really good - my eyes lit up on the very first bite!!

Shared this Assam Laksa during afternoon coffee break - our 4th meal for the day - just one word to describe it - SHIOK...!!

I overheard the staff telling the customer in front of me that the wonton Noodle is “white”. Wasn’t sure what to expect since I’ve always had my wonton noodles in ketchup or in black sauce. Honestly - I didn’t like it at first bite - but the springy noodles mixed with the homemade secret sauce - apparently made with pork bone and lard - grew on me. And speaking of lard - their freshly deep-fried lard was sinfully mmmm....will have to add more during my future visits.
.
Will also try their Ngoh Hiang too. They looked good!

Normally my wife would prepare Osechi - the tradition new year food - for the next year. But she suggested that we should eat out for a change this year. I didn’t order the Osechi - decided to order the “Japanese Boozy Weekend Brunch” instead.

Had had the ramen at Chymes before and I wasn’t impressed. Anyway, ordered the Tonkotsu Original Ramen and an extra portion of charsu. Service wise - I hope that they will improve. I asked for iced water and I was served with warm water. After they’ve served me with the extra order and charsu - I had to wait for a long time before I was served my ramen. As a matter of fact - the guys at the next table who came after me were served with their food first. Not complaining - just making an observation. In any case, I was beginning to wonder if the poor service has anything to do with the fact that this 1 star Michelin shop is located at a Heartland Mall in Woodlands.
.
As for my lunch, the texture of the ramen was alright - and although the Tonkotsu (Pork Bone) broth was flavourful - it was a tad too salty for me. A little disappointed with the Michelin Ramen Store from Tokyo!

Had our first dinner at Wayback Burger located near where we were staying.
.
Had this Double Bacon Burger - the beef patties were nicely grilled, well-seasoned - and they tasted fresh and moist. Seemed like the patties were handmade cos it didn’t look like those from other burger joints. My son even commented, “it’s real beef” when he sank his teeth into his Philly Burger.
.
However, I was a little disappointed that (1) they didn’t use real (pork) bacon - just isn’t the same when it’s not bacon - and (2) the fountain drinks - though free flow - were ALL flat - and I know cos I tried every available drink from the dispenser. 😔

Normally, I’d enjoy their Mee Siam - but today, I felt that their Bee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli) was a little underdone. It was somewhat hard - and i went away feeling a little disappointed 😔

Ordered the Crispy Samgyeopsal with Creamy Scrambled Eggs and Soy-Yuja Sauce. It wasn’t bad - but it wasn’t great either.
.
The sauce was a tad too sweet for me. And it didn’t help when the rice portion was small. But the Kimchi and Pickled Daikon that came with the meal helped cut the sweetness of the sauce and made my lunch a little more palatable.
.
As for the Samgyeopsal (the grilled pork belly). Well, the meat was good and not overly salty - but the skin was hard! If that’s how it is - I wouldn’t name it “Crispy”.
.
So, will I come eat at Ajumma’s again...?? I may - but it will not be my first, second or third choice...!! 😥

Ended up at Delibowl - a Halal Sichuan rice bowl store. I ordered the Spicy Popcorn Chicken cos it looked really good on the menu... only to be disappointed when it was served.
.
Its taste was - meh! Overdone dried Mala-ish spicy chicken chunks. The saving grace were the side dishes - pickled cucumber, and Beancurd Sticks. They were so appetising - I could have a meal just with these 2 dishes. Anyway, if I do go back again - I will like to try their Steamed Chicken with Chilli Sauce - cos it’s the other dish that looks really good on the menu...!!

Haven’t had this before - and after trying it - I did not like it at all...!! Didn’t like the taste of dried oysters. But it started to grow on me - and I even asked for a free refill..!! 🤤
