Pretty alright a plate of nasi padang, we visited in the evening at about 6 plus so unfortunately there wasn’t much ingredients left. It was not too bad but it wasn’t very extraordinary for the dishes that we got today - will probably be back to try the others.

I liked the retro style decor, was a nice touch to a normal street food eatery. Almost felt as if we were in a cafe (but without the aircon)!

Quite a standard bowl of your usual duck noodles, though I was expecting it to come with egg. Compared to the rice dish, this was less worth it in terms of the ingredients it comes with.

We got this as part of a deal - 2 main dishes for $10 - you can choose between duck kway teow, porridge, or rice. Queue wasn’t too bad on a weekday late afternoon. It’s quite a good alternative if you can’t get hawker food around the area.

Rice was quite fragrant, and the braised duck was pretty nice - a good balance of sweet and salty. There weren’t much braised peanuts or bean sprouts but at least the quantity of duck meat was adequate.

Toast was pretty good, comparable to the likes of Ya Kun, just that the bread was lighter and has less of the toasted taste. A great neighborhood alternative to Ya Kun.

I liked that you scan QR codes on the table and order through that, no human interaction needed.

The ambience is great, it has the feeling of a mix between a cafe and a coffeeshop eatery. Prices reflect this as well - it’s definitely much pricier than coffeeshop foods, but slightly cheaper than cafe foods.

Fishballs were delicious and juicy. Fish cakes unfortunately were on the fishy side. The mee pok noodles were slightly dry and undercooked, would’ve preferred more sauce as well - not sure if it’s contributed by the fact that I ordered takeaway?

Overall very average fishball noodles that I wouldn’t order again. At least the fishballs were really good.

On a side note - I appreciated that the cover of the takeaway box was recyclable, was a nice touch.

Came here on an early Saturday afternoon for our prata fix! Luckily it wasn’t too busy so we managed to get a seat for three. Prata was slightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Curry was alright.

We also ordered Milo Dinosaur and Teh Bing, both which were great as well.

What I like about this place is that it was very cooling. We were sitting, eating spicy food in the afternoon, but I still felt very cool and there was hardly any sweat on me!

A beloved childhood snack. The steamed rice cakes were very soft and fluffy, and had a subtle sweet taste that made it delicious to eat on its own. Otherwise, you can dip them into orange sugar as well, which is provided in the packet.

A yummy and nostalgic pastry! :)

Fish was tender and chunky. We ordered the small portion and it was of a reasonable amount. Soup was quite fragrant. They were mostly generous with the vegetables (but the cabbage). Not too bad, worth a try if you like fish head steamboats :)

We went on a Thursday night at about 8pm and managed to get a seat for three. Do note that the menu is entirely in Chinese.

The sambal kang kong was tasty, wasn’t really spicy but it was addictive. A pity we had so many stalks and less leaves. Otherwise this is a nice go-to veggie dish.

Tofu was soft and silky, prawns were really nice with the eggy chilli crab sauce. It was really quite a small serving for the price, but at least it was delicious. I’m happy I tried it, but I wouldn’t order it again because I thought the price is quite steep for such a tiny plate of food.

I liked the strong tastes of the black pepper in this pie, it’s not too spicy. The personal meal-size pie is a filling meal in itself - has mashed potatoes, boiled eggs, mushrooms and veggies inside, in addition to the chicken. A nice pie to takeaway and reheat for a later meal.

Was recommended this zichar place and even though it was a little bit of a trek from Holland V MRT, it was well worth the walk. Dishes were affordable, delicious and great for sharing. We came on a weekend early afternoon so there wasn’t much of a crowd and waiting times were really short too.

The Butter Pork Ribs with Condensed Milk Powder ($8) definitely stole the show for me - it is after all what their shop is known for. It really tastes exactly like its name, the sweet taste of condensed milk went really well with the salty butter pork ribs. Would come back again.
