Probably not one of the best, but this plate slathered in thick gooey stock is just great comfort food.

I also liked that their chili added a pleasant savoury sweetness that accentuated the seafood richness. Plus the use of flat yellow noodles provided a slightly different interesting texture.

However, taste-wise the churros and the milk chocolate dip provided little more than a simple sweetness, which was a tad cloying.
-
6 churros and a dip for $9.90... it's alright, but not sure it's worth it. I might be back for other interesting-looking offerings though.

You never get enough of good ramen, and this Maru-Toku Negi Chashu ramen was great. The noodles were well cooked, and the crunchiness of the negi and bean sprouts made for a great mixed texture. However, the chashu was cooked a tad uneven, with parts rendered too dry.
-
Its true charm was in the flavourful and thick tonkotsu broth though. Loaded with roasted garlic oil, it was wave after wave of umami, accompanied by a potent (but not overpowering) aroma. The sharpness of the negi also negated some of the heaviness, making it palatable till the last drop.

Just a very solid burger, but nothing particularly exciting about it either, even with shallots as one of the toppings. Go for it if you're looking for cheap solid burgers, but don't expect to be wowed.

Sashimi was fresh and plump, especially the delectably sweet hotate and kani.
-
But the secret is in the rice. Not only well seasoned, a myriad of shredded vegetables, roe and (if I'm not wrong) sole fish mix together for an intriguing and umami-filled texture explosion. This is quite unlike any other chiraishi don in SG.

Flavourful, melt-in-mouth, and a perfect smokey caramelisation. This is as good as it gets.
-
Their sio bak ($6.80 for small) was pretty good as well, as its skin shatters with a resounding crackle. The mustard also goes great with it.
-
Their mee pok ($3) was also surprisingly good, I'd even say it's better than most BCM stalls.

I loved how their oyster cakes ($2) have that satisfying crunch on the outside, whilst hiding a fluffy and gratuitous glut of ingredients inside. Found it a tad greasy, but it was still immensely enjoyable.

The woodfire baked bread on this breadboard ($10) were masterfully crafted, with a golden ratio of denseness and chewiness. The white sourdough in particular was heavenly when toasted, imbued with an irresistible char and a pleasurable crunch.
-
Not to forget the accompanying olive oil and Norwegian butter, both of which were supremely fragrant and the perfect foil to the bread.

Cheaper than most food courts but the quality is so much more exquisite. The noodles are well-cooked and bouncy, whilst the broth had a nice dose of umami with a tinge of sweetness. This is a homely but scrumptuous bowl of noodles that's worth coming back for (when the queue is shorter).

And there's no wonder, their rendition is a sloppy wet mess full of eggy richness, with the fragrance of their chili and fried shallots elevating the dish.
-
However, wok hei, which I like in my hokkien mee, was scarce but nonetheless it's a very good rendition.

This bowl of hot beef udon ($10.80) is wholesome and simple, and just a great bowl of noodles. The flavourful and pleasantly sweet broth, the tender slices of beef, and the thick udon cooked to a masterful ratio of softness and bounciness... Every component is meticulously prepared to a high standard.

Another player enters the saturated SG market amidst the brown sugar boba craze, and I think it's one of the best.
-
This cup of Brown Sugar Boba Milk ($5.20) had all the basics down and more; the milk was fresh and the boba was the most addictively chewy I've had. The brown sugar was also pure aromatic decadence, plus sugar level can be adjusted (30% is enough for me).
-
Queue was shorter than Tiger Sugar's one, and it's better too - boba lovers should give this a try.

A food reviewer for fun. Some of my photos are super over-edited to compensate for my old S7 camera.
