Finally visited Coexist Coffee Co. at Hillview!

Took so long for us to visit this cafe outlet till they have changed out from the iconic red white layout! Now it is a grey industrial theme vibes already!

Here is what we ordered:
-Squid Ink Fried Rice ($26++): Super unique dish! Served in a claypot! There is tiger prawns, baby squid, and topped with lots of ikura! Very unique taste!
-Chilli Crab Shakshuka ($18++): Comes with a huge tempura soft shell crab, chilli crab tomato dip, fried mantou and a sous vide egg!
-Satay Quesadilla ($18++): Pulled pork satay with mozzarella and comes with peanut sauce!

My favourite is per the above order ranking! We ordered 3 dishes as we were famished after 3+ hours of discussing reno stuff prior! Say hi to the new neighbouring neighbourhood!

Finally visited iO Italian Osteria!

Funny story behind this visit. My colleague recommended me to check out this place more than 4 years ago! I have been bookmarking this restaurant for the LONGEST time! Have made many chope reservations and then cancelling it because the location was kinda out of the way! Finally after so many years of procrastination, FINALLY visited this place! Luckily we made a chope booking reservation before heading down, because it was so crowded, even on a weekday lunch timing!

Here is what we ordered, most are the best seller recommended dishes:
-Traditional Stuffed Roman Schiacciatta with truffle ($10 for small size) - This was the highly anticipated food item! While it was good, it did not blow my mind
-Orecchiette Pork sausage with saffron sauce ($19) - We were puzzled when this dish was served as the minced pork was not very visible. But quite a nice dish as it is pretty unique
-Home made Tagliolini with Prawns, Asparagus, Lemon and Aromatic Breadcrumbs ($22): Opps, this was our least liked dish. The small portion size served caught us by surprise. LOL
-Pistachio Tiramisu ($14): I am not typically a tiramisu lover, but PISTACHIO lover I am, hence we got it to try! It was good!

Location: 4 Hillview Rise, #02 - 01, Singapore 667979

Overeat on good food at @overeatsg !

Overeat is the sister outlet of The Three Peacocks @ Labrador Park! Overall, I enjoy this place much more as it is in a comfortable air con seating environment!

This is a very value for money buffet! You get to enjoy hotpot, grilled meat, cooked food, fried food snacks, sushi, sashimi and fresh oysters, pizza, salad and fruit bar, cakes, drinks and ice cream!

For the hotpot food selection, you can choose from the 3 soups offered - mala, sukiya or miso soup! There is also a wide variety of hotpot food ingredients - mushrooms, corn, veg, sliced fish, prawn, clams, scallops, shabu shabu meat, balls, sausage, seaweed chicken etc! So many choices! You can even head to the condiment bar to make your own chilli sauce dip!

For the cooked food selection there is LAKSA NOODLES, as well as chilli crab sauce with mantou! Don't miss out on the truffle mushroom soup as well, which I totally love!

End off the meal with some sweet treats - cheesecake, swissrolls, cakes, eclairs, cream puffs, and ice cream!

New Ice Cream Shop - Ri Ri Cha 日日茶 at Chinatown!

They specialise in tea-flavoured ice cream, and very well known for their nian gao waffle!

Ordered the Nian Gao Waffle + 2 scoops of ice cream ($15.80)!
Picked Osmanthus Oolong and the Matcha Butterfly Pea Soy!

The osmanthus oolong was light tasting!

The Matcha Butterfly Pea Soy was a very interesting flavour! Comes in a contrasting blue green colour which resembles earth to me! The matcha taste and soy flavour was well balanced, I quite enjoyed it! I also prefer this flavour to the other one we got!

As for the Nian Gao Waffle, I love how the nian gao was spread throughout the waffle! The waffle was crispy on the outside and chewy mochi-like on the inside! Love the slight brown sugar taste to the nian gao too!

They are located at 24 Sago Street.

Signature Street Style Fried Thai Vermicelli with crayfish ($18): This was soo soo good! My top must try dish here! I love how the vermicelli soak up all the pepper broth! Lots of wokhei taste in it! So tasty I couldnt have enough of it! You can order this vermicelli plain ($8) or with tiger prawns ($22.80) too!

Famous Stir Fried Basil Pork with rice and egg ($8): Love this dish as the basil pork was super spicy super got kick! The egg was the cooked kind though!

Tom Yum Clear Seafood Soup ($15): Be warned this was SUPER SPICY!! Prepare some water or order some rice if you are getting this! There are lots of fresh seafood ingredients in this soup! There are prawns, mussels, squid rings and fish slices! Lots of mushrooms too!

Thai Style Special Omelette with Crabmeat ($16.80): Wah i super love thai style egg omelete! Crispy on the outside and fluffy in the interior! Lots of meaty fresh crabmeat was given too! The best way to eat this omelette is with some chilli sauce side dip! You can also get it plain ($12) or with oyster ($16.80).

Sea Conch Gong Gong ($8): Super long time since I last ate Gong Gong, more than 10 years ago! This is one of the top crowd favourite dishes! It is served with their signature chilli sauce which I super love! The gong gong meat also pulls out super easy from the shell. Chewy fresh meat and super clean!

Finally checked out this crepe place @frenchfold!

Here is what we ordered:
No.04 Ham, egg sunny side up, sautéed mushrooms, Comté cheese ($19++)
No.12 Duck confit, baby potatoes, cream, thyme ($21++)

The crepes are made of buckwheat flour and they only use organic eggs! Loved both of the above crepes! Can’t decide which of the two I prefer! I love the addition of baby potatoes into the crepe! It sounded like a weird combination, but I ended up loving it very much! We were too full from these 2 savoury crepes to try their sweet crepes!

They were super packed on a friday night at the Orchard outlet. Do remember to make a reservation beforehand! Their reservation timings for dinner ar 630pm or 8pm though.
Also special shoutout to their VERY FRIENDLY service staff!

Crown Prince Spicy Mee Hoon 太子米粉 from @penangseafoodrestaurant !

One of my top favourite tzechar places in aljunied!

Second time ordering this! I love the beehoon! Super thin strands (it is like the putien dry beehoon)! This is similar to chaotah beehoon too (like the one from JB Ah Meng). The difference is this has 5 big prawns given (while the JB Ah Meng's version has cuttlefish and pork slices in them)!

Be sure to get the sambal chilli sauce! Goes well with the beehoon!

ordered this through grabfood, so no waiting involved! $10.70 on grabfood! Do note this is more expensive than walk in takeaway price! (if you have grabfood vouchers then it is a good deal!)

My heart goes shalala lala at @wawasg ! Wawa Lala Beehoon specialises in clams!

Featured here are the following items:

🌟Signature Power Drunken Lala Beehoon soup ($7.90): This is one of the signature item! There is a choice of bee hoon or tanghoon, and I opted for the tanghoon! There is also a choice of spicy or non-spicy soup. Be warned, the spicy option can get quite spicy, not for kids! But if you do take spice, do try this, it was quite shiok to drink! There is even enoki mushrooms in the soup! Enjoyed the soup alot, and it does not leave you thirsty after!

🌟Power Sambal Lala with Tasty Rice ($9.90): A very interesting combination of sambal lala with tasty rice! The tasty rice was quite like lotus leaf rice! This came with diced mushrooms too! The sambal is also quite spicy, but also super shiok! The sambal sauce given was just nice!

🌟Fresh Lala Chawanmushi with salmon roe ($5.90): Besides the fresh lala cahwanmushi ($3.90), they also have this other option with salmon roe! Very smooth tasting chawanmushi, with fresh lala clams in the chawanmushi too! Salmon roe gives the burst of flavours!

🌟Fresh Lala in Signature Homemade Garlic Butter Sauce ($7.90): The lalas were drenched in the fragrant garlic butter sauce! I thought it was a drier sauce, but nope, is the very wet kind that you can lick up with a spoon!

🍹They have a wide range of hot and cold beverage, such as the lime juice ($2)!

Fresh lalas are used for all the dishes here! 👍🏻You can see the live clams in their seawater tank too! Was very impressed how there is NO TASTE of sand at all in all the clam dishes! (usually when I order clam dishes elsewhere, i always have a fear that there will be a taste of sand which will spoil the whole meal).

Check this place out if you want to try out these fresh lala dishes!

They are located at Fortune Centre 190 Middle Rd, 01-11/12, Singapore 188979
Opening hours: Daily 1130am-930pm, except monday
