Fujisoba which is Japan’s number one soba restaurant, is located at 100AM Mall Tanjong Pagar.

I remember its Deep-Fried Soba with Sizzling Seafood Spicy Sauce, which is like shen mian but Japanese style.
While ramen arteries are very popular here, it is hard to find one that specialised in Soba and does it well.
Loved its food there, but unfortunately.... oh well.

This is the burger brand’s first outlet at Orchard Road, likely to opens in the third quarter of 2020. The other two outlets are at Jewel Changi Airport and Neil Road.

If you are wondering where Liat Towers is, it is next to Wheelock Place and houses Zara and Hermes. Looks like it took over where another burger place OverEasy used to be.

Opps, maybe not many know OverEasy has closed that branch late last year. I actually kind of missing hanging out at Orchard Road. Oh well.

This stall had it more challenging, as it was officially opened in April 2020, just a couple of days before the “Circuit Breaker” kicked in.

Delonix is a 3rd generation hawker selling Fishball Noodles, and thus the name of SanDai Fishball 三代鱼圆 which means “three generations”. The star was the fishballs, all unevenly shaped as they were made by hand from scratch at 1am in the morning.

Only 100% yellowtail fish is used in the making, with no mixing with stock, starch or other cheaper fish paste such as surimi to create.

Can show them some support.

Oh yah, my home bowls and saucers are in different shades of BLUE. LOL.


There is FREE islandwide delivery with minimum order of $39 for Hongdae Oppa and $49 for Hotpot.

For the family who want a more fulling meal, go for the All-In Feast Set ($49.50 for 4 pax, U.P. $57.50), which includes:
– 3pc Oppa Chix (Gochujang, Soy Garlic, Spicy or Original)
– Jjigae (Pork Kimchi, Tofu Clam or Beef Bean Paste)
– Ramyeon (Oppa Ramyeon or Bean Paste Ramyeon)
– Tteokbokki (Messy Oppa or Tteok Carbonara)
– SPAM x FRIES with garlic mayo dipping sauce

Here’s more:

There was a WhatsApp message circulating around with a list of 40 F&B in Singapore which are closing or closed.
However, Starker Group still indicated they are “temporary closed” on their social media channels.
After I did some checks, I found out that there will be a “Notice of Creditors Meeting” under section 209 of the Companies Act to be held on the 10th of June 2020 for “Starker Brewery Pte Ltd” and “Starker F&B Pte Ltd”. The meeting which will be conducted via video-conferencing, is to estimate amounts of creditors’ claim, appointing a liquidator, appointing a committee of inspection and other businesses.

Just so you know.

One of the main draws is that the Laksa is quite cheap, starting as low as $2.80 (USD2) per bowl, but you can add more ingredients for just $0.50, while cockles are $1 extra.

Comparing this with some of the more familiar styles, this gravy was on the light side, and I would imagine some would prefer a richer, with more of that lemak coconut milk flavour.

The thing that stands out the most is their delicious homemade sambal added with dried shrimps, so try the gravy on its own first before mixing that in.

That chilli gives the dish an extra kick of dang and spice, that may cause some to break out in sweat.

Alamak, why do I crave for Laksa now?! More here:

Is this just another excuse to have burgers?

Anyway, this was from my previous visit at Golden Mile.
In case you have not realised, Ashes Burnnit occupies the same exactly stall location as Burgs by Project Warung previously.

The partners split ways, but there is slight differentiation in the recipe for Ashes.

A main highlight is the price. The basis Ashes Smash Cheese Burger complete with handcrafted beef patty and American cheese, is priced at $5.90 for a single patty complete with fries. Pretty neat price, and more value than those offered by the typical fast-food joints.

You can also expect Truffle Mushroom Burger ($8), Best of Both World ($9), Fried Chicken Burger ($5.90), and Grilled Chicken Burger ($6.50). I thought that the Truffle Mushroom Burger ($8) provide good value with its juicy beef patties with slight char on the outside, though the truffle cream sauce lacked that ‘aroma’ people would love.

The fries slightly seasoned and crisp, were quite the bomb. For health-conscious people, you can add $2 to replace with salad. But then again, why have salad when you can have those fries?

So I tried Mian Zhuang 麵荘 twice – at Hong Lim food centre and delivery; and also recommended a few friends to the stall. They gave it the thumbs up.

What is noteworthy is that Mian Zhuang 麵荘 uses noodles made from scratch daily and not bought from any factory, and is healthier without added preservatives.

I ordered a Mee Hoon Kueh with Fish, and noted that the uncle serving it drizzled some black sauce in a circular motion at the end.

This was the sauce that made quite a bit of difference – thick, savoury and packed with flavours.

The self-blended chilli was also rather spicy, but very shiok and added a bit helped ‘lift’ the overall taste.

They provide islandwide delivery as well. All fees go to the riders.

The fan favourite at Serangoon Garden is known for its tender and succulent Braised Duck Rice.

You can tell a stall is doing it right when the queues are snaking long throughout the day, and customers are willing to wait even in rush hours.

The regular portion of Duck Rice at $3.50 is quite quite its priced, while you can top up with other ingredients such as braised pork, pig head meat, pig tongue, pig ear, braised egg, tau pok and cabbage.

What people like would be the nostalgic Teochew flavours of tender duck pieces, paired well with the white rice drizzled with braising sauce.


This ‘mission’ brought me to Empress Place Food Centre, also known to many as Farrer Road Food Centre due to its prime location at the road with the same name.

But it is not as talk-about and may even miss it if you drive past. I wont’ be surprised if many of the younger Singaporeans have never heard of this food centre before.

Some of the stalls here include:
- Happy World Delicacy 好世界美食 for Roast Meats
- Ah Wing Wanton Mee
- Poh for Chye Poh Horfun
- Heng Heng Nasi Lemak 興興椰漿飯 - Fu Gui 富贵 for Fishball Meepok
- Bunga Raya Prata Hut
- Yu Kee House Of Braised Duck 友记卤鸭之家

Note that delivery timing is 11am to 10pm at a flat rate of $10. There’s a no minimum order.

However, there appears to be some feedback on the late delivery experienced by users, so give them some time to organise their process first.
