OK. Don't ask. Just order this if its on the menu. At 35 it's helluva steal cos its one of the best I've ever had and comes close to the one at Osteria Art. So my non foodie husband solemnly remarks that he should have had a plate to himself and that should be testament to this dish because all he's known to say is, yep it's good or its okay.

This dish is pretty much guaranteed to induce a food coma but is worth every bite. The thick braising sauce coats each strand of noodle and the crispy shark meat nuggets are fried to perfection. This allows for some textural excitement so you don't get bored too quick. It's good and has been for many years. Still a gold old favourite in Tiong Bahru Market.

This dish is my must have when here. Its like tempura sinfulness with the soft texture of eggplant in one perfect combination. The honey for dipping is the perfect contrast to round off this perfect trip. Try it. You won't regret, unless you hate eggplant.

So good! Crispy exterior with a gorgeously juicy interior. Still a favourite comfort food!

If your idea of shiok is some buttery melt in your mouth foie gras torched over sushi rice and coating it, this little bomb at $6 is worth every penny. It's like heaven in your mouth.

This is the best chawanmushi I've ever had. The buttery ankimo elevates the silky smooth chawanmushi with a savoury umami that delights. I would come back just for this...

Foie gras, duck breast combine in a medallion that is tender, juicy and sinfully good. Balanced out by heirloom carrots and Brussel sprouts, its the perfect comforting lunch this celebratory season. Only till 3rd Jan. 55 for main course, tea, dessert and a mocktail.

Dill & Lemon Pasta. Damn that sounds good. And it tastes darn good too. Done Al dente, the sour tang of the lemon cuts through the dough nicely ensuring it doesn't become too much too quickly. The beef ragu is the perfect complement which I topped with a runny egg and caramelised cherry tomatoes. Pastas here are made fresh and it clearly shows the heart that's gone into till it feels like I've gone back to Italy. Its comfort, robust, tangy and textured all rolled into one power packed plate. First time at this joint but it for sure won't be my last. Pasta selections rotate every 5 days so we learnt.

All meatballs should be slathered with this much cheese to be good. OK that aside, the meat was incredibly tender and each bite was juicy with bursting flavour. I don't know what's in them but man these are some magic balls. At under 10 a bowl, no reason not to try. So good lah!

I love anything and everything eggplant. Cheese, eggplant and breadcrumbs, this combination sounds like a winner and taste wise it is but unfortunately the skin left on the top layer makes it rough to chew and ruins the experience. Loved the bottom most layer though and for an under $10 I can't really complain.

Besides the amusing name, man this is one of my all time favourite dishes to have and this one is no exception. Simply done with a good contrast between crust and body. Included also as part of the incredibly value for money 1 for 1 set dinner!

The beef was seared to perfect doneness and melted in my mouth. As part of the 1 for 1 Burpple set, this is incredible value for money! I love the bite and juicy natural flavours that shine through with this dish. This is an Australian Kobe with marbling of 4 to 5, cut is tri tip.
