Throwback to my Penang eats! Did you know that the famous Toh Soon Cafรฉ at Lebuh Campbell (along the alley) has a cafรฉ outlet at 37 Lebuh Bishop? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ My bestie & I headed to the latter for a more comfortable (air-conditioned) environment to chill & relax over a meal of local breakfast. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
If you are looking for that same smoky flavours of charcoal-grilled bread, you will not get it here at this cafรฉ outlet as their breads are toasted over electrical grills. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
My bestie chose the Toast Bread with Hainanese coffee (Set) at RM5.50 (~SGD1.85), which featured a 2 slices of toasted white bread ๐Ÿž slathered with homemade kaya & salted butter, accompanied by a cup of Kopi O (black coffee) โ˜•. Unfortunately I did not have any appetite as I was suffering from diarrhoea, hence I got myself the Hainanese Toast with homemade kaya (RM4.50, ~SGD1.50).๐Ÿ’•
.
Out of the 2 types of bread, I personally preferred the Hainanese Toast as it was thicker & fluffy โ˜๏ธ, somewhat resembling a brioche. Especially enjoyed the crusty sides that was super aromatic after toasting. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค
.
The homemade kaya was sweet, which brightened my tastebuds ๐Ÿ˜‹ but I would very much prefer the Pandan Kaya we have in Singapore as I feel that the fragrance of the pandan elevates the coconutty flavours of the kaya. ๐Ÿ’š
.
If you are looking for a heartier breakfast, you can add their sous vide egg (RM2.50, ~SGD0.85) ๐Ÿณ to complete the meal just like at Yakun or Toastbox in Singapore. ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ
.
Guess I need to head to their original alley one for the ๐Ÿ’ฏ authentic taste! The next time I'm in Penang - that's where I will be heading to! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Nestled at Cuppace Terrace is @mamasoisg, a Kitchen-Bar serving up dishes with a South-East Asian flavours. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป With an al fresco seating area, it has a pleasant ambience good for winding down with a group of friends! ๐Ÿป
.
Almost a staple on every table, their signature Son-in-Law Eggs ($7++) really impresses on presentation. ๐Ÿ’ฏ Letโ€™s forget about any connotation on the dishโ€™s name & focus on the food itself! ๐Ÿ˜‰
.
Texture-wise, I would say that it is a cross between hard-boiled eggs & Ajitsuke Tamago (ramen egg). ๐Ÿฅš Cutting through the firm egg white unveils a runny yolk that lends a nice luscious mouthfeel. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค Liked that the eggs were greasy at all despite being deep-fried to paint that golden brown on the exterior. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
The highlight would have to be the accompanying mama's signature chilli jam ๐ŸŒถ, which gives the eggs more oomph with its slight spicy kick. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Served on basil leaves & tipped with sliced chilli, this was certainly an elegant way of presenting eggs on a plate! ๐Ÿ’•
.

It has been some time since I last had satay & these Chicken SaTAY ($12++ for 3 pieces) at @izyfook certainly satisfied my cravings! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
.
The chicken skewers ๐Ÿ“ were made using super succulent meats with a nice springy chew that boasts of its freshness. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Liked that they were sufficiently chunky too for that wholesome bite. โœ” Coupled with the smoky flavours of the char-grill & perfectly-charred exterior, these skewers were simply on point! ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
You might already know that I am a nuts about nuts so the peanut sauce really aced it for me! ๐Ÿฅœ Savoury-sweet with an irresistible nutty fragrance, it brings so much flavours & a nice crunch to the meat skewers. ๐Ÿ’• The accompanying lemongrass blend also helps to cut the heaviness of the meats. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค
.
Certainly a worthy small bite to have at @izyfook! โค

Are you like me, always itching for a nibble when you settle down at a restaurant or eatery? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ If you answered yes, Fu Xiang Signatures will wow you with their new Crispy Sambal Chicken SKIN ($5.90)! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
I have noted a few new chicken skin snacks of late & am glad that they have brought them to the table, piping hot! ๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
Featuring sizeable chicken skin deep-fried to the perfect crisp, topped with their FIERY signature sambal chilli ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ that isn't for the faint-hearted, this dish just screams SHIOK! โœ”
..
Warning, this can be really ADDICTIVE! I simply couldnโ€™t stop munching! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Exclusively available at @fuxiangsignatures Jewel outlet! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Need a morning perk-me-up? โœ” @paulbakerysg is my go-to breakfast place! โœŒ๐Ÿป Offering a wide range of pastries, bread & desserts, I'm always spoilt for choice! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
.
I like that they now have a takeaway breakfast set, reasonably priced at $5.90 for a cup of hot drink โ˜• & 1 of their Top 6 pastries! ๐Ÿ’ฏ Perfect for the busy bees like me - I can now munch on the delectable pastry & sip on my cuppa at the comfort of my office table! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
I paired my Cafรฉ Latte โ˜• (U.P. $5.90) with a Croissant Amandes (U.P. $4.20)! Featuring a croissant ๐Ÿฅ topped with almond slices, this made such an aromatic & sweet brekkie! ๐Ÿ’• The nutty flavour of the almond slices & sweet icing sugar complement the buttery & flaky pastry so so well! ๐Ÿ˜‹

How do you like your LALA (clams) cooked? While my favourite would be those stir-fried with sambal chilli ๐Ÿ”ฅ at BBQ stalls, this rendition at @izyfook left a deep impression on me. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
.
Their Steamed Clams in Dashi ($18++) features a generous amount of fresh clams that were sufficiently plump & juicy! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ The natural sweetness retained from the steaming process was a clear indication of its ultimate freshness! ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
The dashi stock was light & refreshing, with its slight savoury flavours complementing the sweet clams. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ Topped with some garlic, chives, scallion & coriander, this was an unpretentious bowl that all seafood lovers would be delighted with. ๐Ÿ’•

I have always liked the dimsum from Fortunate Restaurant (especially their char siew baos)! ๐Ÿ’• Sad to say, these bite-sized Custard Egg TARTS ($1.10 each) were quite a disappointment. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
.
The crust is pretty well done ๐Ÿ’ฏ - buttery & crunchy despite being left out for a while. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป However, the egg custard leaned towards the sweet side & did not encompass enough of that eggy aroma. ๐Ÿ˜…
.
Overall a decent eat but sorry, my @taicheongsg still triumphs! โค

@supplydemandorchard pride themselves for serving up rustic Italian cuisine ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น, so pizzas are a must-get here! โœ” With dough that is handmade in house daily, hand opened & freshly baked to order, the wide selection of thin CRUST pizzas here (I counted 28 different flavours! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป) will certainly satisfy your taste buds!
.
New on the menu is Pizza Manzo Scottato E Pera ($25++ for Regular/$29++ for Large), which features a thin-crust pizza slathered with tomato sauce ๐Ÿ… & mozzarella cheese ๐Ÿง€, topped with sliced seared beef ๐Ÿ„, red onion, fresh pear ๐Ÿ, rucola leaves & pine nuts.
.
Love the interaction between the different ingredients all in a slice ๐Ÿ˜‹ - the natural sweetness of the tomato sauce & pear slices mellow the astringent taste of the arugula, while the pine nuts add an irresistible nutty flavour. ๐Ÿฅœ While I wished the seared beef could be more tender, these thick juicy cubes would please any carnivorous diners! ๐Ÿฅฉ
.
For the health junkies, Avocado E Pesto ($25 for regular/$29 for large) will be a good pick! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป It may look unassuming but trust me, this vegetarian delight delivers so much more! Even the guys liked this - that just says SO MUCH! ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
The base of garlic cream sauce, oregano & drizzle of pesto sauce ๐Ÿ’š flavours the pizza perfectly, not forgetting mozzarella ๐Ÿง€ & roasted pine nuts to make this a true-blue Italian classic. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Topped with sliced red onions, fresh avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘, rucola & cherry tomatoes ๐Ÿ…, every bite was rich in flavour but minus the guilt! โœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐ŸปโœŒ๐Ÿป
.
Tempted to get yourself a slice? ๐Ÿคค Definitely good for sharing with your loved ones! Time to head down to @supplydemandorchard for a good time! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

I usually go to Popeyes for their fried chicken ๐Ÿ— but now I know Iโ€™ve been missing out big time because their burgers are LEGIT too! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ” Level up your love for burgers with @Popeyes.sgโ€™s Caramazing Onion Nโ€™ Chick Burger, just like it did to me! ๐Ÿ’•
.
Modelled after their chicken sandwich that was sold out in the US in just 2 weeks due to extraordinary demand, I can totally understand what the hype is all about. โœ”
.
Sandwiched between corn-dusted bun ๐Ÿฅฏ is a buttermilk spicy chicken thigh ๐Ÿ“ fried to the perfect crisp while remaining tender inside, crunchy Batavia lettuce ๐Ÿฅฌ, juicy tomatoes ๐Ÿ… with a nice tang, savoury melted cheese ๐Ÿง€ & a bed of soft caramelized onions, finished with a creamy spicy sauce. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค
.
The perfectly caramelized onions were definitely the highlight, rendering an irresistible sweetness.๐Ÿ˜‹ Every bite was bursting with flavours! ๐Ÿ’ฏ
.
With a set meal priced at $8.90 (comes with regular honey mustard fries & regular Pepsi), I say this is pretty worth it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Limited time offer only & this burger is only available till 21 Oct so you gotta try it quick! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Tried the Lor MEE at my neighbourhood coffee shop & I must say that it is pretty good! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ Mine was large portion at $4.50 - you can opt for $3.50 for smaller portion but it comes with less ingredients. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
.
Featuring the iconic thick flat yellow noodles ๐Ÿœ drenched in gooey brown braised gravy, topped with 2 halves of braised egg, braised pork belly, savoury ngoh hiang & fried wantons, topped with minced garlic, celery leaves & chilli, it is of no wonder why this bowl has captured the hearts of many Singaporeans! โค
.
Each noodle was coated lusciously with the iconic thick starchy gravy that was aromatic from the spices used & egg. ๐Ÿณ The uncle finished off with a generous splash of vinegar which gave the bowl a strong tangy note which I liked as it perfectly cuts the richness of the gravy & the heaviness of the noodles. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
.
The noodle was well-prepared - still had a firm bite without being too soggy. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป The tender pork belly coupled, crispy fried wantons & chewy noodles presented a nice layering of textures, making this bowl a delightful one! ๐Ÿ’•
