Had a chance to try their Truffle mushroom noodle bento ($12.90) and was really impressed! The springy noodles were well coated with very umami packed sauce that has both good elements of a strong mushroom and truffle oil flavour. The mushrooms were well braised and were springy as well! The dumplings I chose for the set were chilli prawn filling, and I liked it due to its strong prawn flavour, with a heat that kicks in after. The appetiser bean sprouts were well seasoned with vinegar, making them really addictive! I must say this is a well rounded meal, great to order back to office during lunch!

Probably the best Portuguese egg tarts I've tried. Such tarts are best eaten hot and I was amazed by how crispy and buttery the pastry crust was! There were very interesting egg tart fillings as well and I got chocolate raspberry, yam sweet potato, coffee and earl grey. All were really good, and special mentions to the chocolate raspberry due to its thick rich ganash with citrus raspberry flavours, the aromatic real yam paste used in the yam sweet potato and the strong aromatic coffee flavours (but yet not too sweet). Each egg tart cost $3.30 - $3.50, and is even cheaper with #burpplebeyond ! Totally will get it again 😍

I think many might find it weird why I ordered my Ayam Geprek ($8) with cheese instead of having it with their chilli, but you really get the best of worlds doing so! Just ask for their wonderful homemade chilli by the side and you have yourself a satisfying cheesy, spicy, flavourful fried chicken to go with your rice 😍 really nothing much to complain about especially when it's also pretty cheap knowing that it's in the town area!

This popular hole in the wall bread shop is known for their sourdough breads and bakes and I just have to give it a try!

The Aubergine and Tomato Bialy ($5 each) were slightly tough, but the ingredients were really fresh and they were full of flavour. We preferred the tomato version more, as it is much more moist.

Although the Gruyere Roll ($6) seemed simple, but the cheese used was really fantastic with its savoury earthy flavour. Paired well with their sourdough!

The Grilled Cheese ($12) was pretty big and had so much cheese in them together with several other ingredients like garlic and onions. Very satisfying but I do suggest sharing this with someone 🀣

Definitely a great find. Will be back!

There's a really cool concept where you can have your food ordered from Deliveroo in a really chill setting! There are quite a number of food options here at this Deliveroo Food Market and best of all, it is a quiet place and is a great way to escape from the lunch crowd. I had the Pork Shoulder Burrito Bowl ($11.90) which is a pretty substantial portion although I find the tender pork slices abit too sweet. The Beef Slices Pho ($10.80) is such a good option as the broth was really robust and it was such a generous portion! Definitely recommended for those that work around the area that wants to hide away from the lunch crowd ☺️

Original Single Cheeseburger Set ($13.50): Probably what you call a good quality fast-food burger, that is juicy but not too greasy at the same time. I really enjoyed the fresh greens in the burger itself that makes the burger really much less surfeiting. The skinny fries were pretty good as well, abit better than the usual Macs fries we are familiar with!

Yes I know, plain old prata. But the prata from this place has the doughy chewy texture that I love, and the slightly crispy crust that is indeed satisfying. Paired with curry, this is my go-to supper anytime 😍

The mala xiang guo here ($24 for an abundant amount for 3 people) is really fragrant, and what's better is that the numbness is customizable as well! For the price, it's really worth it as we ordered quite abit of meat!

Be careful, because this shop's mala spice is heavier than the most places! The small spice here is equivalent to the medium spice in most places.

Now this might be expensive, selling at $7.80 a piece, but it's really good if you love your chicken abit on the sweeter side. The chicken is tender and well marinated and coating has a good crunch. The flavour profile is more of a sweet-savoury kind; extremely satisfying!

I ordered the linguine with mixed bell peppers and mixed mushrooms ($7) and honestly I was disappointed with the texture of the noodles as well as the ingredients. Portions were not too great too.

However, their cheddar sauce on the other hand was really thick, creamy and flavourful, but I felt like it didn't compliment the pasta well. Perhaps I chose the wrong sauce. They do live up to their name for being famous for their sauces, but perhaps their fries could have been a better compliment to their Cheddar sauce?

Really good wings and tasty cheese fries. The parmesan boneless chicken wasn't a hit though, as the batter wasn't as good as the one on their chicken wings. The kecap manis wings though are really good but can be really spicy. The celery and carrot sticks really seemed out of place here but hey no harm getting the fibre you need right?
