Good To Try But Once Jiu Hao

Probably not worth going...

The sweet BF ordered this for us one fine Wednesday morning :')

Matcha mango freeze: this is more mangoy than matcha.. Could do with more matcha imo

Oolong jelly matcha royale: I like how the lighter oolong jelly goes very well with the matcha and milk but wish that there's more matcha (the milk proportion is way too much imo which clouds the taste of matcha)

Peach cloud with jelly: the bro feedback that this is very sweet

Personally wouldn't be back for seconds of these though. I'll stick with my matcha espresso :)

Excited to see bbt options in FP during the extended CB period!

We ordered the red tea (0% sugar), brown sugar fresh milk and milk tea (75% sugar), all with the option of adding brown sugar pearls. The cost for each drink is about $3-4 which is pretty okay.

Taste wise:

Red tea: I love it! The slightly bitter tea contrasts very well with the sweet brown sugar pearls

Fresh milk: very milky and classic combination

Milk tea: this is way too sweet for me but my bro seems to like it so πŸ˜›

Their brown sugar pearls are also on the hard side. Not as chewy and QQ as the popular brands but I guess have to make do la in this period πŸ˜‚ probably won't order again though. There are better options haha

Had been wanting to try 倧倧村 fries after seeing it in many food fairs and pasar malam so finally went for it at Chatuchak!

There are 3 options of sauce to choose from:
- Regular : $7.90
- Premium : $8.90
- Half (only 1 premium sauce max) : $9.90

We chose the half option and opted for Seaweed Mayo (regular) and Mentaiko Mayo (premium). There were a total of 10 fries and each fry is super long πŸ˜‚ but other than that, taste wise it's not super fantastic and the sauces were quite forgettable too.

Nonetheless, appreciate that they really use seaweed flakes for seaweed sauce instead of the usual seaweed powder haha. Good to try it once but probably won't buy it again.

We were looking for desserts and spotted an insanely long queue at Ah Chew's. Being the typical kiasu Singaporean, I pulled the bf to join the queue haha.

But hor, I personally don't find this very amazing/special... Perhaps their Orh Nee (Yam Paste) is the highlight but nothing too special with their Mango Pomelo or Red Bean Paste.

Wanted to visit Gangsta Ramen for quite some time now and eatigo 30% + $5 Eatigo voucher finally motivated us enough to give this a try!

Getting to this place was quite a feat as Google maps pointed us to the side entrance of the complex when we could have entered from the front... After arriving, the place was very empty 😲 okay fair enough, it's a Saturday afternoon so probably that's normal since it's a CBD area.

We couldn't find anyone upon entering and only after a few repeated hellos did a middle aged server came out to greet us. She honored the Eatigo deal without questions and proceeded to explain what is included in the discount. After we made our order, we have to make payment first, which comes up to ~$18.

We ordered the Spicy Ramen ($12), Cheese Ramen ($12), Torikatsu ($2.50), Smoked Duck ($2.50) and 2x Hot Green Tea ($1.50 each). Only the drinks were excluded from the discount.

The good:
βœ” Springy Ramen
βœ” Soft and Melty Char Siew
βœ” Torikatsu was SO GOOD - Crispy outside moist inside

The not-so-good:
❌ Broth was on the lighter side, quite forgettable
❌ Spicy paste has a very gamey/porky smell which I found quite unpleasant
❌ No seaweed & also not in menu even as an add on

Overall: probably would not visit again as it's quite a normal bowl of noodles (I wouldn't really call it Ramen since the broth is really not up to standard). But if you're there, please give the Torikatsu a go. It's only $2.50 and it's soooooo good β˜‘

Was on our way to another dessert place when we passed by this stall at the corner of the Chinatown Point Basement. There's a 1 for 1 offer and hence we decided to give this a shot.

The soft serve is very fragrant and really smells like coconut milk. However, the consistency is more icy than creamy, probably due to the low amounts of milk used (as mostly coconut milk). The sugar cone was also lackluster. Probably will not buy it again.

Very dry bibimbap and the kimchi was too sweet for my liking. There's also not enough gochujang sauce given (and that's after requesting them for more). Will not be back as there's so much more and better options in the food court.

We wanted to give Ramen Champion another go after a disappointing meal last year but standards did not improve.

Ordered the Go to Hell ramen, Tom Yam cheese ramen as well as a beef daikon side. Although the spicy ramen ($14+) is really spicy (and this is coming from someone who eats Samyang 2x noodles without breaking a sweat), it's not very flavorful. The Tom Yam ramen ($16+) also had a weird after taste. Beef Daikon portion was also very miniscule and it costs $7.90+. Not worth it at all.

Save your calories, save your money and give this place a miss.

Beef was tender, shrimp was okay but the udon and broth is very forgettable... Would rather pop by Idaten Udon a few minutes away for decent udon UwU

Had a wonderful experience here last year and decided to go back for Valentine's day dinner.

We ordered the hawaiian pizza as well as a mushroom chicken risotto. The risotto is very bland and mushy... Could really have been seasoned better. The pizza was average and the dough is neither fluffy nor crispy which is quite disappointing.

However what I find the most appalling was the service. The staffs were nonchalent and unprofessional when interacting with us, using very casual language. While I do not expect fine dining standards, I would appreciate a friendlier and more respectful tone.

Overall, passable meal but won't be back as there's better Italian food options around.

Was craving pizza and decided to give Morettino a try. Service was commendable - staffs were polite and friendly, really made us feel at ease.

We ordered the pesto chicken pizza as well as the spaghetti amatriciana with burrata. The pasta came first and first impression was the burrata looks like it melted... Lol. Was expecting a ball or at least a semi ball but it arrived looking like it was probably there maybe 20minutes ago ):

The pizza came around 5 minutes later and it was not hot. The chicken pieces were also dry and bland.

Ambience was enjoyable as it was a quiet Wednesday evening and they had some pretty nice music too. However, the food is a disappointment and sad to say, we won't be back ):

Ordered the Paprika Chicken and Cheesy Rendang dish and although the cafe was relatively empty, the dishes took ~25mins to arrive. It was also quite warm - it felt like a toaster inside!

The waiter came to explain that as the chicken is prepared from scratch, the waiting time is slightly longer. Apparently, they had reviews in their other concept (Citrus by the Pool) that their prepped chicken was tough and hence they decided to try with raw ingredients.

Well, although the wait was long, I have to admit the chicken was incredibly juicy and tender. The wedges were quite tough though. Probably should have baked it while preparing the chicken πŸ˜‚.

My boyfriend had the Rendang dish and we found it underseasoned and bland. Quite disappointed ):

Overall, I feel that the cafe is pretty and they serve some neat dishes especially the customized salad bowls. Pity these are not on the Burpple deals. Their marble tables are very instaworthy and the decor is upscale and chic. Personally feel it might be better as a dessert cafe. Probably will be back if they have more dessert items but otherwise, I wouldn't go out of my way for this.
