Loads of crispy and fluffy fries. Drenched with mayonnaise and nacho cheese which I truly love and I can’t help to compare this with the version served at a certain fast food restaurant. Maybe the beef bolognese could used minced beef with less fat content as all I tasted was fat.

Thank you @49seats for hosting us.

During my NS/ student days, @49seats has been on my to-do list but it never got checked off somehow. So recently I was invited for a meal there and tried their legendary Tom Yum Salted Egg Seafood Pasta with Chicken Cutlet among other dishes.

Bite-sized fried chicken drizzled with salted egg sauce. The batter itself was crispy and the meat was moist. was I felt the consistency of the salted egg sauce complemented the popcorn chicken better than the pasta.

Thank you @49seats for hosting us.

A pasta that I’d recommend for those who prefer something not saucy. Spaghetti that’s cooked al dente (bare minimum for any good pasta for me), pieces of smoked duck, mushrooms, garlic and chilli. I’d say the smoked duck was tender and flavourful. You can choose your level of spiciness for this dish too.

Thank you @49seats for hosting us.

A combination of spaghetti - cooked al dente - with tom yum and salted egg sauce. You’ll enjoy a generous serving of prawns, clams, mussels and breaded chicken cutlet.

I opted for standard level of spiciness although there’s the extra spicy and Level 49 spicy versions available. I found it to be extremely mild. No doubt the sauce was creamy, tangy and tasty.

As for the salted egg sauce, it’s creamy but the salted egg taste is weak. The breaded chicken cutlet was crispy and flavourful which complemented well with the dish.

Thank you @49seats for hosting us.

I can’t wait to go for a weekend trip to Malaysia soon. But for now, I’ll settle for some mouth watering Malaysian delights such as Penang-style cendol, claypot chicken rice and Klang bak kut teh at @malaysiaboleh_sg - a 1960s themed attraction dining destination at Jurong Point, AMK Hub and Eastpoint Mall.

Inspired by the legendary Klang bak kut teh, the soup is boiled with pork ribs, garlic and a blend of herbs and spices. As it’s been catered to local tastes, the soup is less herbal in flavour than what you’ll get in Klang/ Klang Valley. Beancurd skin, pork belly slices and button mushrooms are added for additional nutrition.

Claypot Chicken Rice ($5). Cooked over gas stoves (not charcoal), one can’t help but to notice the aroma of sesame oil and the fragrant toppings of chicken, lup cheong, shiitake mushroom and salted fish. And absolutely love the crusty bits (soccarat) at the bottom of the claypot.

The signature dessert here. You feel like you’re at the famous Penang Road in Penang eating cendol but in an air-conditioned environment. I like the fragrant coconut milk and fresh pandan jelly. Most food courts use the factory packaged ones which can be hard. Cendol is one of my favourite desserts and I’d have this again.

Handmade noodles with dry chilli, minced pork, shiitake mushrooms, poached egg, kangkung, fried anchovies (ikan bilia) and fried onions. The noodles had a good bite. But the dry chilli could have an additional kick of spice to perfectly complement the dish.

The fried oyster/ orh jian is cooked in Penang style. The orh jian is relatively on the starchy, gooey side and isn’t crispy. The plump, juicy oysters and the fluffy, wet egg omelette are certainly worth looking forward to. Don’t forget to dip it in chilli sauce for a spicy, garlicky touch.

Penang char kway teow goes easy on the dark soy sauce and doesn’t use sweet sauce. What’s enjoyable is the wok hei (charred taste) on the slightly chewy kway teow (rice noodles) and the generous bits of pork lard. It’s fried with prawns, beansprouts and chives. But prepared to be disappointed if you love your cockles or lup cheong (Chinese sausage) as there’s none here.

How I wished duck eggs were available in Singapore and we will have the full Penang char kway teow experience.

If you ever had 21 Sliders - that used to roam about at carnivals and Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar, you’d be happy to know that it has made a comeback as @cultsliders at Hermano by @theofficialsleepinggiants in Boat Quay. Choose from a range of sliders and mains. 🍔

The American Cheese ($5). You can’t go wrong with this. Good old cheeseburger with caramelised onions, gherkin and caramelised ketchup.

The Backyard ($5). Sliders with turkey bacon and smokey barbecue sauce. Turkey bacon is lean and crispy that adds a crunch to the juicy beef burger. And the barbecue sauce elevates the flavour of the slider.

The Wrangler ($5). Great for those who are afraid of gaining weight but want to satisfy their sinful cravings. A chunky, juicy piece of crispy chicken thigh, spicy buffalo sauce and purple slaw to satisfy your daily veggie intake.

The Dirty Standoff ($5). Cheeseburger slider with nacho cheese, salsa and tortilla chips. It has a Tex-Mex feel although I felt it’s a lot to put in a slider.

The 421 ($5). Grilled chicken thigh, purple slaw, pineapple and tangy mayonnaise.

The Cult’s Cutlet ($15.90). LOOK at this HUGE piece of CRISPY AND SUCCULENT CHICKEN CUTLET that ain’t too oily. Eat this during lunch only if you got a BIG appetite. And I actually enjoyed the side of Truffle Tots which is seldom served at most places.

The Mac & Cheese Miller ($12.90). Absolutely love how creamy this Mac and Cheese was. Perfect for those who are really hungry and love their carbs.

Cult Fries ($12). A massive pile of fries topped with slices of fried chicken, caramelised onions and drizzled with piquant buffalo sauce. Don’t attempt to have this on your own.

[LUNCH DEAL] Available from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm: From $7.90 – $11.90 for combos consisting of sliders, a drink and choice of a side, all mains will be available at $12.90.

Thank you @pyjemmas, Amos and @cultsliders for hosting this tasty lunch!

You can check out @onkeitonkatsu at Paya Lebar Square (01-85). A sister concept to @keikaisendon, treat yourself to a fairly affordable tonkatsu dinner since the weekend’s here.

Think of all the tonkatsu combinations that you can and they have it - Tonkatsu, chicken katsu, cheese tonkatsu, mentaiko tonkatsu, miso tonkatsu, curry katsu, ebi katsu and fish katsu.

All sets are served with a choice of Hokkaido white rice or multigrain rice, shredded cabbage, tonjiru soup, pickles, tonkatsu sauce and green tea. So here’s what we had.

Cheese Tonkatsu Set ($21.90++ for 120g/$23.90++ for 160g). Breaded pork loin cutlet with a cheesy mozzarella centre. As the camera took awhile to eat, we didn’t experience the stringiness of the mozzarella but I’d say it’s relatively decent. Only the pork loin option is available for this.

The good part of the katsu here is the crispness of the freshly made panko breadcrumbs yet the pork cutlet itself isn’t oily at all.

As a fan of Japanese curry, I added the side of Curry ($3.80++) which was fairly decent.

Mentaiko Tonkatsu Set (Pork loin: $21.90++ for 120g/$23.90++ for 160g). Essentially a piece of breaded pork cutlet topped with pure salted cod roe that gives it that umami kick. Although a favourite among my fellow Singaporeans, mentaiko isn’t something that will catch my eye.

As for the cutlet itself, there’s room for fine tuning. Ideally, pork loin should be moist and tender owing to its greater fat content. Ours was slightly tough and dry. We had this before their official opening and I believe they have since addressed the issue.

Thank you @onkeitonkatsu for hosting us to this tonkatsu dinner.
