Weekday Escapades

Simple hawker fare plus the occasional better dinners!

As self explanatory as the shop name, this place sells a variety of udon, more so than the one at NEX. I got the beef udon with onsen egg, it was better than expected, the soup was deliciously salty. The sides - fried fish cake and chicken cutlet were unfortunately not hot and hence not worth the $2+ per piece )-:

Got the jingsyuan tea with cheese foam and the assam tea latte (with milk foam). It's just fine, the tea wasn't exceptional though at first taste of my jingsyuan it was refreshing. Also, the service was slow and staff seems inexperienced.

The soba noodles were really good - chewy and didn't taste like those packaged kind. I got the eggplant one and it was surprisingly good! While my friend got the mango salsa soba, could have more mangoes but it was alright. Will be back!

Got the DIY bowls. What's different about this place is that they make use of Konjac in their rice/noodles etc. So our carbs tasted kinda like jellyish? The sides were alright.

Got the Persian Prince(?) & Mojito! I thought that the flavours were quite okay. Can't exactly remember what else but just know that they've an array of other flavours!

Got the Ceylon milk tea with grass jelly, warm!!!! And it was pretty nice!!! Though the tea taste can be a lot stronger~

Got the GyuDon 2.0 and had high expectations for it!! But boOoo the meat was quite tough, and had this distinct charred taste which I don't particularly like. While there were quite a lot of condiments (some bread crumbs lookalike on the rice) scattered over the dish, the rice bowl still felt kinda bland 😰

But not exactly delicious!!! Got the Truffle Mushroom + Prawn Alio Alio(??). The truffle mushroom pasta was served with RED pasta, chunky mushroom pieces and a creamy alfredo sauce, taste wise it's pretty standard. The other pasta dish (with prawns) on the other hand, was quite unique. The mala taste hit me the moment I had my first bite, along with the crunchy ebiko. But tbh, it was also kinda weird - like the pasta and mala taste didn't go well.

Got this with peanut pearls!!! Tasted like tangyuan 😱

Had the choice to get one protein + 5 different toppings + base and sauce. The prices differ over which protein you got. I had the seared tuna ($11.90) and it was pretty yummy! Interesting cause we were supposed to add desired sauce, and shake it before eating.

Popped by this place for a quick dinner, got the braised pork (lu rou) and mala pork collar rice bowl. The braised pork was tender and the fats not overwhelming, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn't too salty at all. Just that the food wasn't that hot when it was served. The mala pork collar was slightly overbearing on the "'Ma" side, but reasonable for the "la". Meat was tender and soft which was delightful, but as for ma personal tastebuds, I would recommend the braised pork!
