When I read that La Porpo is Chef Bjorn Shen’s favourite ayam goreng place, I knew I had to check this place out! We headed there for dinner on Saturday and there was quite a snaking queue, but I gotta say it was worth the wait as their ayam penyet is one of the best I’ve had so far in Singapore!

The chicken is really thoroughly smashed, and had a super crispy skin yet tender, juicy meat! The sambal chilli that came with it is seriously no joke - damn spicy and I had to ‘steal’ my friend’s coke 😂 to deal with the heat!. My only gripe was the butterfly pea rice (not sure if this is the default with the set, as I’ve seen variations with green pandan rice too), which I found quite clumpy and lacked any fragrance.

But it doesn’t really matter as the chicken trumped all! Will definitely keep this on my ayam penyet rotation, and will check out their highly raved ayam geprek too!

French dumpling pasta filled with Tête de Moine cheese. It's cheese lovers dish and you must try it. The pasta is soaked in warm cheese!

You can also order a large plate too share for $28

This pizza is DA BOMB. I’ve never eaten such a simple but delicious pizza. The bread is light and fluffy, tomato sauce is tangy and goes perfectly with the burrata cheese. THIS PIZZA IS DA BOMB.

this place has Burpple too but you need to inform the waiter to use it before ordering which I didn’t so I ended up paying full price. But definitely no regrets.

Looking forward to try other dishes in the menu!!

Verdict: 4.75/5

Put that knife aside, it isn’t needed here. These beef cheek chunks are fork tender and oh-so-good! It’s a classic pairing of beef, sauce and mash, but satisfying nonetheless.

We heard this was a popular item from their holiday menu, which means it might not be there for long! And don’t forget to use that sweet #BurppleBeyond deal to get this 1-for-1! ✌️

Love the combination of nduja and burrata. Nduja is a spicy spreadable pork salumi made with pork shoulder, back fat, belly and a generous hit of spicy Calabrian peppers. A little goes a long way and it most definitely packs a punch, cutting through the richness of the creamy burrata!

Hidden in the basement of Golden Mile Tower is King of Fried Rice, a humble eatery that specialises in fried rice. They serve 4 different versions of fried rice here (Mala, X.O, Tom Yum & Egg) with your choice of meats (Pork Cutlet, Shrimp or Chicken Drumstick).

The fried rice was excellent, very flavourful with a good wok hei taste to it while the pork cutlet was delicious as well, so juicy and tender!

With a name like King of Fried Rice, they certainly delivered and i’ll definitely be back real soon to try the other versions of fried rice.

This fiery chicken wings marinated in the house sauce, are so devilishly hot, I have to ask for forgiveness...

Thick, fluffy ricotta hotcake topped with vanilla bean ice cream, berries, pumpkin & sunflower seeds mix ❤

Beautiful to look at, and absolutely delicious to eat 👍

This photo doesn’t do this dish justice at all, but hiding under that unassuming bed of garnishes are tender, melt-in-your-mouth slices of fatty wagyu beef with just the right fat-to-meat ratio. But what I really enjoyed about this dish was that super fragrant and well-balanced dressing, consisting of sesame oil, dashi stock and cider vinegar.

My fave pasta of the lot that we tried. Beetroot pasta in a shape slightly reminiscent of macaroni was al-dente and slicked nicely in a fragrant, herby pesto sauce, mushrooms were super juicy and huge, and adding miso corn bits to this dish was genius! Have it a slightly sweet and crunchy edge to balance out the other elements.

Back at Brothers Ramen wanting to get their Shoyu Men ($12.90), but it was sold out. 😔 Went for the Chicken Ramen this time for a full sous vide chicken chashu + dumpling topping, as I wasn’t too big a fan of the pork chashu that came with their signature Brothers Ramen ($12.90) I had the first time. It was a little too dry and tough, but the chicken slices were tender and flavourful!

I’ve never really used to like chicken based ramen, but Brothers Ramen really brought it up a notch! Love how creamy yet drinkable the broth is and the al dente homemade ramen didn’t soften through the meal. It’s a super value for money quality bowl (no additional taxes) that’s extremely comforting!

Gave Ordinary Burgers at City Square Mall a go yesterday; thought their burgers were pretty value for money considering how this was priced at $5.90.

The burger comes with fried buttermilk chicken patty and other condiments such as lettuce and tomatoes; the chicken being drenched in a salted egg yolk sauce while everything is sandwiched in between two buns. The buns were undoubtedly light, while the portion of chicken was pretty generous — fried in a crisp, golden brown batter, the chicken was tender, succulent and juicy; pretty savoury on its own. The salted egg sauce was decent; not too heavy whilst coming with curry leaves for flavour. Overall a pretty well-sized burger despite looking rather heavy; rather easy to finish and pretty affordable — a value for money option that I would consider having again.
