SINGAPORE exclusive
.
Collaboration between Pretz and local seafood restaurant chain Jumbo Seafood
.
Favourite local Singapore Chilli Crab made into iconic Pretz stick
.
I was greeted by a strong tomato aroma when I open the packet
.
Tastewise, the pretz was really salty and the chilli flavour lingers at the back of my throat
.
I have to say I’m not a fan of this

Available at all Old Chang Kee outlets except for Petrol Kiosks
.
Old Chang Kee’s Original Curry Puff in chips form
.
As I opened the bag, I could smell a strong curry aroma
.
I could tell that the Old Chang Kee put a good amount of spices for their Curry’O chips as I could taste the curry, onion, garlic and paprika in them
.
And after taking a few chips, they left me with a nice sweet-spicy aftertaste

Fish & Chips with a Singaporean twist
.
Breaded sea bass drizzled with aromatic rendang sauce and is then topped with fresh shallots and toasted coconut flakes
.
Comes with crispy white baits, 22 oz soft drink and a choice of fresh potato crisps, fries or pilaf rice
.
I opt for fresh potato crisps for the sides
.
The sea bass was breaded nicely and flaky on the inside
.
Toasted coconut flakes added a bit of sweetness and crunch to the fish while the fresh shallots enhanced the flavour of the aromatic rendang sauce
.
Overall, a nice Mod-Sin dish
.

Pork ribs with a Singaporean twist
.
BBQ Pork ribs glazed with housemade ‘Kopi-C’ sauce and served with You Tiao crisps and ‘Rojak’ slaw
.
The BBQ pork ribs are quite tough in the center and the ‘Kopi C’ gave a bittersweet aftertaste
.
But both the sides; You Tiao crisps and the ‘Rojak’ slaw provided a good amount of crunchiness and creaminess
.
And they gave me a refreshing palate and balanced the heavy ‘Kopi-C’ flavour
.
Overall, a nice Singaporean take on the BBQ Pork ribs
.

Collaboration between Pocky Singapore and local retro-ambience cafe chain Ya Kun
.
Favourite local Singapore Kopi O made into iconic Pocky stick
.
I was greeted by a strong coffee aroma when I open the packet
.
Tastewise, the kopi flavour is rather distinctive but left me with a bitter aftertaste
.
Nonetheless, a good try though

Favourite local Singapore Kaya Toast made into iconic Pocky stick
.
After taking a few sticks, I couldn’t taste the familiar eggy, coconuty jam notes
.
But instead I could taste the artificial coconut milk and pandan flavour
.
A good try though

Hainanese Chicken Rice with a healthy Western twist
.
A medley of cauliflower rice, quinoa, poached chicken slices, achar, cherry tomatoes, chicken skin crisp and ginger chili dressing
.
The ginger chili dressing was the star of the dish
.
It was nice and creamy. And it managed to bring back the familiar ginger chili flavour I had in my Hainanese chicken rice
.
However the downside was that the poached skin slices have a fairly amount of gelatinous bits and were a miserably small portion
.
And the chicken skin crisp were a bit soggy though
.
Not worth the price though but kudos for the attempt
.

Kaya toast with a modern twist
.
Two slices of toast layered with kaya and D24 durian paste
.
The kaya was sweet whereas the D24 durian paste was creamery and had a slight bitterness
.
Although the durian flavour slightly overpower the kaya but as I took few bites along the way, both flavours managed to compliment each other

Bak Ku Teh with a fusion twist
.
Pork ribs, dang gui, pepper, garlic and a variety of other herbs constitute the simmered broth whereas the pork filling remains the same
.
As I bite into the thin skin, I got a burst of herbal flavour which pairs nicely with the tender pork filling
.

.
Laksa with a French take
.
Homemade rempah paste is spread on baugette, topped with fresh prawns, fish cake and tau pok, folded with coconut béchamel, lastly baked with sliced eggs and cheddar cheese and sprinkled with fresh laksa leaves
.
I opt to toast the laksa toast.
.
Overall, it is an interesting take but I would prefer it would be tasted better if there were whole prawns instead of bits and pieces of prawn
