It has been quite awhile since my last visit to Singaporeโ€™s River Safari! Had a fun time exploring River Safari this weekend! Not super crowded, with just the right amount of crowd for a peaceful time to watch/view the animalsโ˜บ๏ธ

Who can resist a good kimchi pancake? I always crave for @wangdaebakbbq kimchi pancake because itโ€™s just so good! So crispy and flavorful!

Located at Holland Village, Ginzaย Kamoย Soba Kyudaime Keisuke under @ramen_keisuke is a duck ramen specialty restaurant. Do note that only duck options are available here. All ramen is served with slices of premium Irish hybrid duck which is favoured for its ample fat that adds to the tender texture and rich flavour.

As I did a little research before heading down, I decided to give their duck meatballs a miss and went with the ๐‡๐ฒ๐›๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ƒ๐ฎ๐œ๐ค ๐๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ก ๐‘๐š๐ฆ๐ž๐ง (๐‘๐ข๐œ๐ก ๐’๐จ๐ฎ๐ฉ) ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™›๐™ก๐™–๐™ซ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™š๐™™ ๐™š๐™œ๐™œ. The duck pieces were indeed really fresh and tender! I love the broth as itโ€™s really rich, thick and flavorful. The broth was really robust and creamy as duck bones and herbs are added to the stock and simmered for at least eight hours.

Though I really did enjoy the broth, it got a little jelak when I was halfway into the bowl of ramen. Thankfully, they provided a small dollop of yuzu paste which helps to cut through the thickness of the soup. Otherwise, take a break from the bowl of ramen and go for their seasoned bean sprouts at the side to cleanse your palate a little.

Overall, itโ€™s a pretty small and cosy space to enjoy a good bowl of warm slurpy ramen.

Decided to head to @chinatownpoint_sg for lunch and came across @eatkrapow .

Thereโ€™s many options to choose from their extensive Thai menu. The dishes were reasonably priced and we tried their ๐“๐จ๐ฆ ๐˜๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐’๐ž๐š๐Ÿ๐จ๐จ๐ and ๐๐š๐ ๐“๐ก๐š๐ข ๐‚๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ค๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ.

Their ๐“๐จ๐ฆ ๐˜๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐’๐ž๐š๐Ÿ๐จ๐จ๐ comes in choices of either red or clear, and consists of shrimp and fish. The seafood are not the freshest, but good enough. The tom yom soup was pretty authentic but Iโ€™d wish for stronger flavors and some spice kick.

As for the ๐๐š๐ ๐“๐ก๐š๐ข ๐‚๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ค๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐๐จ๐ซ๐ค ๐๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ฒ, the rice noodles are wok-fried with a secret blend of spicy tamarind juice and topped with fresh tofu cube, egg and dried shrimp. Did not try this but it looks pretty good!

The food at @eatkrapow is decent, authentic in flavor and prices are pretty affordable. Though we did not try it, seems like Drunken Noodles are their specialty that youโ€™d wish to give it a try!

Have always wanted to try out this place as Iโ€™d read some pretty good reviews about their fish head steamboat.

@laibaosg ๐‚๐ก๐š๐ซ๐œ๐จ๐š๐ฅ ๐’๐ข๐ฅ๐ค๐ž๐ง ๐“๐จ๐Ÿ๐ฎ is a rather unique take on silken tofu! The soft tofu was engulfed by a layer of sesame. The sesame layer was crisp while the tofu was really soft! Love the textural contrast presented in this dish - crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. You could also mildly taste the natural sweetness from the silken tofu. A pretty interesting dish thatโ€™s worth to try to see what it is like. Otherwise, it may just be tofu covered with a crisp savoury (MSG-laden?) layer.

Itโ€™s never a bad time for zichar. @laibaosg is definitely your neighbourhood zichar stall serving up some warm soothing steamboat soup thatโ€™s especially suitable for the cold weather nowadays. Itโ€™s worth a try if youโ€™re in the area!

The grouper was pretty fresh and firm. Chunks of fish meat could be found alongside other ingredients - forest mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, chinese cabbage, black fungus, yam, tofu and seaweed.

The collagen bone broth is cloudy and velvety, with natural sweetness from the fish and vegetables, and an earthy heft from the seaweed. Though the soup was creamy and smooth, I had expectations of it to be sweeter and more flavorful.

@monstercurry.sg have recently launched a new menu - Combo Curry Ramen๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Their all-new Combo Curry Ramen comes in 3 varieties:
Monster Combo Curry Ramen
Sea Monster Curry Ramen
Mountain Monster Curry Ramen

I tried their ๐— ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—–๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ผ ๐—–๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฅ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป, which consists of fried fish, pork katsu, shrimp tempura and pork shabu shabu!

I just like how @monstercurry.sg has always served their pork katsu right - tender and moist pork coated by a crispy outer layer.

The new Combo Curry Ramen is available at all Monster Curry outlets except ION and NEX. Hurry check them out!

This cup of tea is delicate and well-rounded with hints of floral and fruit. A lovely cup of warm tea to enjoy in the cafe for an afternoon tea, especially in this cold rainy weather.

I went for their buffet which consists of mala grilled fish and a range of ala carte dishes.

For the mala grilled fish, I had sea bass in spicy fragrant flavor with medium spiciness level. I added quite a number of sides as this is a buffet๐Ÿ˜. A side that I think you could give it a miss is the handmade noodles because it gets bloated and soggy easily.

For the ala carte dishes, I highly recommend their La Zi Ji and Stir-Fried Garlic Butter Lala!! We just couldnโ€™t stop ourselves from getting more garlic butter Lala ๐Ÿคค!

Though I feel their mala grilled fish isnโ€™t the best, it was nonetheless a satisfying meal. I really love having mala grilled fish with great company!

A super generous portion with a good variety for a lovely brunch. Though I feel the brioche could be toasted more to make it crisp, I was surprised at how plum and juicy the tomatoes were!

The only disappointing point is that such a hearty pricey platter but only a slice of smoked salmon...? LOL.

Overall, I didnโ€™t expect myself to enjoy the brunch items and filter coffee so much! I am definitely adding @elixir.boutiqueroasters to my favourite brunch places! Be prepared to queue as itโ€™s super crowded for a weekend brunch!

The soft and fluffy french toast was topped with a generous amount of creamy scrambled eggs. The fragrant truffle aroma fills the air around us and thereโ€™s hints of truffle flavor in each mouthful.

Love how every item in the dish complemented each other so well, making it a delectable brunch item.
