A relatively fresh face in the Bedok cafe scene, Star Brew by Laughing Cafe occupies a small space within the neighbourhood of Bedok North. A humble and unassuming facade, Star Brew offers fusion food that I believe is worth a shot. If you live around the area, I highly recommend patronising them for a drink, small bite, or even beer, all filled with cozy vibes! While the current menu is limited in options, I am hoping that this cafe will take on a more ambitious direction of expanding their menu to deliver more ambitious dishes and flavours — because I am sure the staff and cooks have so much potential and greater things to offer!

My favorite here was the mentaiko ebi pizza. A good portion for one, the pizza crust was thin and topped with a good amount of crunchy shrimps. The best part about this pizza was the generous topping of mentaiko mayo that made the pizza absolutely creamy and full of mentai flavour, as well as the very flamboyant torching of the sauce right before your eyes. Finished off with a huge amount of nori seaweed, it really gave every bite of pizza a good crunch. I do find myself craving this sometimes!

This pasta really packs a umami punch. Super flavourful and tasty, and a slightly sweet node in the sauce. However, after a while, the sauce becomes slightly thicker which makes the pasta feel much heavier than I would’ve liked. Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the flavours in this dish. The bonito flakes gave an interesting texture to the linguine as well. I think it’s definitely worth a try, however, it must be acknowledged that this is a bit pricey for what it is worth.

Cafe is a place with chill vibes and conveniently located at the mall. It wasn’t too crowded when I went on a weekday, and service staff were relatively polite👍🏻

Mentaiko chitarra with soft boiled egg, cream, plum, and seaweed.
The mentaiko chitarra was absolutely yummy. The spaghetti alla chitarra proved to be the right choice of pasta with this Japanese fusion dish, simply because it’s thickness emulated that of udon noodles🤣. But on top of that, the chitarra managed to encapsulate the delicate creaminess of the mentaiko sauce. The plum added a slight sweetness to the cream, elevating the flavours of the sauce here quite a bit. One of the better mentaiko pastas I have tried. Amazing!!

This was mind blowing exceptional. I don’t really fancy tomato-based/cream-based pasta when I’m out eating. But the idea of pink sauce bewilders me because the combination of tomato & cream neutralises the aspects I disdain (the overt sourness, acidity & heavy creaminess). Personally, I sit so much better with pink sauce. So when pink sauce & lobster comes up on the menu- yes, please! This exceeded my expectations in every kind of way. Well the ambience here is laid back and chill; I can only imagine the bar vibes at night but I went for lunch. It’s simple, unassuming, and the decent prices may not strike you as much. But this slipper lobster pasta packed generous chunks of lobster meat, and spaghetti lathered in a slick texture of pink sauce, with a kick of spiciness & tanginess. For $17, the amount of lobster meat served in the plate was worth it. Would eat this again and again when I return.

Interesting but simple burger that hit the right spot. The addition of pork luncheon meat to a well-cooked medium rare beef patty laced with cheese & pickles was unique, but worked out right. Never knew I would ever try a combination like this, but I’m glad I did! Decently toasted buns & crisp fries as well.

On the Asian Mains fusion menu at Perch. Loved the flavour of the black pepper and the beef was pretty tender. The sunny side up was also perfectly runny! But price point definitely on the high side for this.

IKEA jumping on the mala bandwagon, but I personally don’t think this dish worked out. With pasta on the side, the pasta was dry and the mala sauce didn’t go well together with it. The chicken leg was big, but the texture was rubbery, and the mala sauce felt diluted.

Chicken wings good as usual, but fried rice was not very flavourful, and on the drier side as well. Would be better off just getting the fried chicken wings separately!

Huge fried drumstick that was crispy and flavourful. However, the aglio olio didn’t taste like much, it felt like soy sauce noodles😂 rather pricey for such a dish and Low standard of pasta. Dish was overall dry. The only decent think was the chicken drumstick.

In this Thai-Western fusion cafe, the menu offers a huge range of Thai food, with many being interesting fusion concepts such as spaghetti. I absolutely enjoyed the gravy of this dish. It was both sweet and a little spicy at the same time. Portion of chicken was decent, but the texture was a bit rubbery. The sweetness of the gravy was contributed by fruity ingredients like grapes, pineapples, cherry tomatoes. The winner of the dish is really the gravy for me. It doesn’t feel that authentic nor spicy, but it was an interesting experience. Located in paragon, it’s pretty pricey but they offer daily sets! This was one of the cheapest at $16, served with an ice lemon tea. The iced lemon tea was great too. The ice wasn’t normal ice, it is made of ice lemon tea as well, making the drink worth it.

On the menu this claimed to have sautéd beef cubes, but it was very much just minced beef bits. Together with smashed garlic and whipped cream, this dish was seemingly interesting. Although I couldn’t really make up the flavour of garlic and whipped cream in this dish, this ragu pasta dish still tasted pretty good. Portion of this dish and beef bits were pretty generous overall. Add Tabasco for a pop of spiciness in this dish - it elevated the experience for me and gave it slightly more flavour other than just tangy tomato sauce.

Mad for Garlic is a restaurant that has all its dishes cooked and based on garlic - making their dishes potentially extremely flavourful (that is if you like garlic). Originating from Korea, this is an Italian themed restaurant based entirely on garlic. This place or garlicky prawn linguine was like aglio olio, but with garlic bits drizzled all over too. It was delicious, except that the number of prawns given was too few, disproportionate to the amount of linguine on the plane. It amounted to about 1.5 prawns, and while it was pan-seared with great taste and char, you don’t really get to savour or appreciate it because the portion was just so small. Not a bad dish, however, for the price, I would have appreciated more ingredients.
