The portions were huge! After sharing an appetizer and main dish amongst 2, we were stuffed.

The sauce for the meatballs were really salty but goes really nicely with the sourdough toast. Food and ambience was great! Truffle fries were light on the truffle scent but I’m okay with that.

Ordered this during CB! Their char siew was phenomenal!!! Soft, fatty, caramelized meat without being cloying. Rice was fragrant and nicely done.

Went for dinner at Two Bakers with some friends, and I chose the bulgogi steak don. So freaking fatty, soft and soooooooo delicious. The side of onsen egg, spinach and mushrooms went beautifully with the rice. My friend had the steak & mash, but it wasn’t as soft as the bulgogi steak don.

We also ordered their baileys cold brew but the baileys was too mild, and had their har cheong gai drumlets but that dish was unmemorable.

Ordered 2 scoops of ice cream - pistachio and fig & honey. Both flavors were great!

The menu was so extensive here that my date and I had to take our time to scrutinize before finally deciding on these!

We ordered an appetizer to share, calamari e gamberi fritti, which is a basket of deep-fried shrimps and calamari. Freshly fried and absolutely yummy!

I decided on the gnocchi bolognese - my first time trying gnocchi. The pasta was chewy and dense, yet softer than a classic tteokbokki. The sauce was tangy and savory. Not bad.

My date had their risotto al funghi. Mushrooms were good! At the end of the meal, there was not a single grain left on his plate. The lady boss joked that she doesn’t have to wash it hehehe.

A very homey, welcoming space. I’d love to return and try other dishes here! Remember to make a rsvp before heading down :)

Got the mentaiko prawn sambal pasta — I love their choice of capellini noodles! Very unique and delicious, but also very oily. The portion is really big; I would think to share this!

We also ordered a side of truffle fries ($14) where the truffle dip is served separately. Wasn’t as fragrant as it was when I tried in the past 😔 ended up packing this to go cause it was too much for my friend and I!

Oily, spicy and mouth numbing - all things I love in a bowl of sinful mala. Pork slices were alright, nothing special. Noodles were cooked perfectly. Tomato wasn’t strong but provided a hint of sweetness.

1) Basil beef rice - Pretty alright beef, the seasoning is pretty yummy!
2) Green milk tea - Fragrant tea and right sweetness

Also a tip: Avoid their seafood options (very meager portions & frozen seafood) esp their tomyum fried rice!! Looks like egg fried rice instead lol. Idk how such a simple dish can turn out so bland.

Reached to find a queue system infront of the cafe - just leave your name, pax no. and number. Took a couple of photos for my friend and we were seated already. Pretty quick 🙂 Noticed that the queue was endless - we were there from 12pm-1:45pm and there was always a crowd.

1. Shishito chili chicken - south asian spice with yogurt dip; mild heat on delightfully marinated chicken drumsticks. Bread has a nice crust with strong garlic flavor.

2. Lemon curd pancakes (brunch dish) - it’s an alright breakfast, nothing special. Blueberries were sweet though!

3. Chorizo and octopus risotto - my FAV dish! It brings you to the sea, then takes you right back to land... 😂 a pity that the octopus legs were overcooked but the rice was overflowing with flavors. Looooved the rich seafood stock. Egg sitting on the dish was perfect too 🙂

We ordered 3 iced coffees. Total bill for 3 pax was $26 each!

Dropped by for lunch at Scrambled and got their smoked salmon scrambled egg burger with fries!

The bread was a tad oily but it was toasted well. Unfortunately, the mentaiko sauce and smoked salmon overpowered the scrambled egg (which i assume should be the main star). Nonetheless it was still a good burger, and I’d come back to try other flavors. My friend enjoyed her katsu pork variant alot more!

Got their cajun fries and truffle fries from set A and set B respectively. Fries were very crisp and fresh, and seasoned well. Truffle dip came separately and it was really fragrant!

Overall pretty pricey (about $16 for my set A meal w salmon) but delicious fast food!

Happened to stumble upon this little bar along Tanjong Pagar and decided to give it a shot. It was crowded when I was seated — a good sign I guess! I had the bar seat overlooking the chefs. They had lard available on the table, which made my date very happy.

We ordered their pork and prawn wantons in superior stock - amazing broth, every spoonful you could taste the prawn stock. Wantons were not bad, but I expected better from a wanton specialty store.

Had their mushrooms as well - MY FAV. I don’t know what sauces they used but it was delicious. They also used three different mushroom types, and the medley was perfect.

Pork belly was alright but my date loved it. He was raving about how crunchy the skin was.

(Not pictured) Ordered their carrot cake too, and it came under a blanket of omelette. Omelette was fried with chai po, which made it very fragrant. Underneath were carrot cake cubes lathered with sambal. The sambal had little pieces of dried shrimp so each bite had plenty of textures. Would recommend ordering!

Mee kia was springy and cooked well. My date almost ordered 3 bowls of noodles cause he enjoyed it that much.

Overall enjoyed my dinner here. Bill was pretty hefty but we did order alot of food. Ambience was cosy and service staff were attentive. Definitely one of the best eateries I’ve been to.

Priced at $10.90, this bowl of shoyu ramen came with 2 slices of pork cheek and half of an onsen egg. Simply delicious - I was polishing off this entire bowl.

Bamboo shoots didn’t have to usual chemical scent to it unlike most stores, and they added raw onion as garnishing which gave the dish a depth.

Swapped my noodles out from thick wavy ones, to thin and straight ones. Noodles were springy.

Pork cheek was well marinated and tender, with a slight charring on its surface. Not bad.

Service staff were attentive and friendly.

It’s no wonder this place has a never ending queue during peak period!
