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.

The menu made this dish look so good! But this was an utter disappointment that fell short of all kinds of expectations. One would be better off just eating laksa from a coffee shop. Ingredients and the laksa flavour itself was tasteless and lacking in flavour. The egg, which looked molten in the photos, was extremely bland. The prawns were pathetic and evidently frozen. The squid had a fishy taste to me. An extremely disappointing meal I must say, because I was extremely excited to try it. Not sure if I’ll come back for their food again next time..😮

This is a special pasta made for a valued guest as the restaurant claims (in the menu). I wouldn’t qualify this dish as being authentically Italian for its fusion of flavours, but it did work out really well for me. Linguine pasta was drenched in a spicy marinara sauce with chicken sausage and beef pepperoni. The spiciness level really gives a huge kick in this dish, and the meats added a super savoury touch to it. It was unique and I enjoyed it, but a part of me still felt that there was a price mismatch. Nonetheless, worth a try if you’re into spicy fusion pastas!

For the price point, I glad they gave a good portion of pasta, prawns and mussels. I was so full after! You had the option to choose either spaghetti or fusilli for this dish and I chose spaghetti, which wasn’t a bad choice. However, I couldn’t taste much laksa flavour in this dish; it was creamy, thick, but overall a flavour that was hard to dissect. I couldn’t taste the coconut essence which you would normally taste in laksa, nor the spiciness you’d expect from this. Despite the disappointment in not tasting what I’d expecting, I still enjoyed the attempt at this laksa fusion dish. I would probably get this again if I return, but request for a higher spiciness level if possible! It is still definitely worth a try if you come here. But I must say that I used the #burpplebeyond deal, which made this meal more affordable and worth it for me. Also, I was pretty sad that you could no longer choose your handmade pastas here, apparently because they shifted this concept to their new restaurant Tipo. I wonder why they can’t do it in both Tipo and Co-op, it’ll give Co-op customers something so much more to look for!
P.S. Made a reservation but restaurant was pretty empty before the dinner crowd at 7pm. Also, the service staff were really lovely!

The quantity made the meal worth it, but much more can be done about the overall quality of the dish. The fish was coated with a thin, crispy batter, which I thought was fantastic as it didn’t feel too heavy eating it, albeit slightly on the oilier side. The sambal wasn’t too spicy, which was disappointing since I chose the sambal option for that added kick. Fries were nothing special - in fact they were pretty dry and unseasoned. However, since large part of the dish was the fish which was pretty decent, it didn’t make this dish too underwhelming!

This was a plate of delicious slurpy goodness! I’m not a fan of creamy pastas, but as described, this pasta was tossed with a light cream base, with a kick of garlic and spice which I thought enjoyed! Amazing flavour and pretty decent portion of crayfish, though I would definitely want more. However, spaghetti felt pretty stale, and though I polished this dish in a matter of minutes (I was so hungry!), I felt that even if it wasn’t handmade pasta, the spaghetti could afford to taste fresher and cooked al dente. But I admit, sometimes when you taste well textured handmade pasta, it is difficult to look at factory-made pasta the same. Nonetheless, ambience here is amazing, and this price point is definitely worth it compared to the duck confit!

For $28, this dish wasn’t very worth it. The char siu bbq glaze wasn’t really impressive, just slightly sweet. The meat, while meaty, wasn’t tender and was more on the tough side. I think I enjoyed the achar the most, it was nutty, sour and spicy, extremely appetising! I’m not a fan of kueh tupat, but the satay sauce that came with it was so good! It was spicy with a good charred taste. Thus, the winners of this dish were the sides, rather than the pork ribs itself, yet, they are not enough for me to choose this as an option again.
