I think this is a relatively new restaurant at Fortune Centre! They specialise in handmade pasta in interesting variations. Got the Lamb Merguez ($16.90/$23.90) and Mentaiko ($16.90/$23.90) Both were fantastic. Especially liked the Mentaiko which wasn’t as cloying as I had expected it to be so I didn’t feel sluggish after eating it. Recommend calling in first to book a slot cos they were packed when we arrived!

Visited Burger Bar New York the other night and we love how it’s so secretively hidden in a back alley! Made us feel like we were some secret society members 😬 they sell a series of no-frills burgers here that really hit all the right spots. Portion sizes were also surprisingly massive and we left feeling very full and content. Would recommend it if you’re in the Telok Ayer area!

Discovered this gem of an Italian restaurant called Lucca Trattoria and it’s located at Robertson Walk. Prices here are on the more affordable end matches up to the quality of food. The Frutti Di Mare (seafood) pizza was excellent, seafood was fresh and crust was on point. Also just the right size for 2 pax. Will be back!

Was surprised to find such fantastic pasta at a bar! This crab and clam pasta is from Mischief which is located in Esplanade. Was expecting a full on tomato base but this was mixed with a little cream to neutralise the tartness of the tomatoes. Pasta was Al dente and seafood was super fresh as well. Portion size was also extremely generous!

Would you pay $45 for a bowl of laksa? This lobster laksa is from Perch and after a year (yes, a whole year) of deliberation, I finally got it. It’s really very good — gravy wasn’t too heavy. Ingredients were fresh and noodles were Al dente. And I love how it comes with a giant lobster. But $45 is unfortunately a bit too steep for me. Would I repurchase? I’m not sure. But in general the food at Perch has never disappointed me and I’ll be back!

Treated myself to this gorgeous stuffed squid from Opio Kitchen & Bar. It comes packed with a generous amount of barley risotto and when you cut the squid open, this just sensually oozes out. Beautiful. Risotto was excellent and what impressed me even more was the texture of the squid itself. It’s a genius combination and I’m now curious to see how the rest of their risotto dishes fare

Tried out the nosh at Paul Cafe the other day. Didn’t realise that they sold mains and breakfast items apart from their usual bakes! Had the cod fish and was pretty impressed — cod was fork-tender and melted away in our mouths. Also like the cream sauce it was paired with which really complemented the buttery texture of the fish. Ambience was pretty nice too, super chill vibes.

Just found out that Plain Vanilla sells mains too! We got to mix and match our choice of pork chops and quiche with refreshing salad sides for an extremely hearty and healthy meal. Prices are also surprisingly wallet-friendly, especially for the serving size, so we would gladly dine here again!

This was marked as Foodking good. Was okay lah, quite addictive. But more chilli bits than chicken.

Always walked past this place at Paya Lebar but never went in. Finally did and I’ll be walking in here a bit more from now on.

Can’t remember the name of this dish but it was some pork steak and it was freaking good. Also love the sauce which was some yoghurt cabbage thing. So good, will order again.

Was curious when I saw this on the menu but it’s more like a spam corn dog. Was all right but don’t expect you tiao.

I eat like a sumo wrestler
