An entertaining dish served in a hot stone topped off with a “volcano”. Prepare yourself for hot steam gushing out of the spout as your ramen cooks! It’s not my favourite ramen in the world (I’ll put it in my “gimmicky” ramen list), but the portions are huge with lots and lots of veggies which I appreciate. They provide free eggs too and they come with gooey centres - a perfect snack while waiting for your ramen to arrive.

I’m usually quite picky with my fish, but I knew I had to try this after reading reviews of how good it was. The barramundi sits on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, drizzled generously with a herby cream sauce. The fish is fall off your fork tender with crispy skin. I loved it! The service and ambience were really lovely too. Come show your support for this social enterprise - all profits go to charity.

A vegetarian dish that is both filling and tasty! I loved how the crunchy vegetables complemented the well-marinated soy-sauce tofu. I only wished that they had provided more gochujang, one saucer is definitely not enough for a spice lover like me! I think it would be alright to ask for more, since there used to be a bottle placed at every table in pre-COVID days.

One of my favourite places when I want to eat noods!! LeNu offers a wide variety of Chinese noodles in broths that give you that comforting, satisfied feel in your belly. This was my first time trying their wantons and they were huuuuuge, filled generously with pork and different kinds of vegetables. The chilli here is more 麻 than 辣 so mala lovers would love it. I also really like their 拉面 because it’s super QQ!

The Funan outlet is special because it’s the only LeNu restaurant that offers 50% off your second bowl for both lunch and dinner!

True to the description on the menu, this kimchi pancake was made to perfection and crisp from edge to edge. It encapsulates a mix of savoury kimchi and sweet onions, garnished off with red peppers. This was one thiccc kimchi pancake (notice how it’s not pre-cut!). This one is for the ones who love crunchy pancakes!

I’ve had my share of bibimbaps that have failed to impress me because they taste like plain vegetables and rice with gochujang that overwhelms the dish with spiciness. This one surprised me because the vegetables and mushrooms were salty and juicy which went well with the gochujang that was not too spicy. I loved the spinach the most! The proportions were just right although I felt that the beef could be a little less dry.

These eggs were so delightful. Garnished with spring onion and drizzled generously with sesame oil, they were fluffy and warm from the sizzling dish and paired well with white rice. We could visibly see and hear the sizzling when the dish was served to our table!

This is my first time trying the coffee at PPP. As I’m not a regular coffee drinker and can be quite picky with my coffee, I was surprised at how smooth the coffee was! I was quite excited to try their selection of cold brews from Chye Seng Huat Hardware, but unfortunately they were sold out for the day. It was expectedly crowded for a weekend with a queue snaking outside for dine-ins. We decided to do a take-away instead, but I can’t wait to come down on a weekday where it’ll hopefully be quieter! Their selection of pastries look amazing. Do note that their take-away coffees come with a standard two shots. I’m shaking from all the caffeine in me now 😛

My usual order of 6 ingredients in soup for $4.30 (5 ingredients + noodles/ rice for $4.30) and a side dish of tempura enoki and oyster mushrooms courtesy of the aunty of the stall. She’s always so friendly and cheerful ☺️

Eventasty has become one of my favourite places for a hearty bowl of Chinese noodles! Tucked away in a quiet corner of Funan, it dishes up freshly-made hand pulled noodles with “bite” which I love. These hot and sour noodles really have the shiok 酸辣 taste that leaves your belly warm and full. The seabass was soft and flaky in the hot and sour broth which was topped off generously with Sichuan pickles and broccoli.

What’s better than ice cream in a cone... an ice cream sandwich! The Dark Gallery offers ice cream sandwiches in their original ice cream flavours sandwiched between dark chocolate biscuits. We had Chocolate Origin and Butterscotch. I preferred the richness of Chocolate Origin. This was otherwise average tasting and made better with Burpple Beyond.

The tomato soup base was flavourful enough and the noodles were nice and springy with some “bite” which I like. This was topped off with a ramen egg that came with a nice custardy middle, cherry tomatoes and coriander! Wished there could have been more beef though - the beef seen in the photo was not the tip of the iceberg.
