$6 for instant noodles may seem excessive but hell if it wasn’t a satisfying bowl. They must have doused the richly umami soup swimming with chunks of minced pork and egg with a ton of MSG, because I could not stop drinking it. The lone slice of luncheon meat was no slouch either, thicc, salty and fresh from the fryer. It also helped that there were alot of greens in the soup to assuage my guilt somewhat at eating so unhealthily.

Average roast pork for this price and the portions are small, but I do like the chilli and sauce over the rice. I recomend the roast meat stall in Ubi Place Eating House instead.

Amping up the heat at Changi Jewel is Shang Social’s mapo tofu, a blazing scorcher that’ll ignite your tastebuds with silken tofu and tender minced beef drenched in an oil-slicked lake of piquant, fiery goodness. The interplay of sour, spicy and numbing flavours as well as sensations is spot on, making a healthy heapful of steamed white rice mandatory for soaking up all dat sauce.

Shang Social BAR’s twist on the gin fizz sees a pandan infused gin shaken with lemon juice, egg white and simple syrup. It’s a refreshing pick-me-upper but could certainly do with a stronger punch of pandan.

Shangri-La Group’s first standalone dining establishment outside of their hotels is a knockout in terms of both design and food. The multi-concept venue features 3 distinct areas that segue seamlessly to form a cohesive whole. Gracing the entrance is the BAR, serving Chinese tapas and Asian-inspired craft cocktails as well as chrysanthemum beer on tap. To either side are MRKT and DINING, Shang Social’s marketplace/casual eats area and formal dining space respectively. From the latter come these delectable sticky and sweet fried glutinous rice spheres that are ready to be stuffed with an absolutely moreish minced meat stir-fry.

Careful when you chomp down on these oversized buns, you don't want to risk losing any of the precious meat liquor within. With a crispy pan-fried base, the fluffy, sesame crusted buns each contain a juicy pork ball stewing in its own juices. For 3 large portions, these are delicious, filling and incredibly value for money.

Or otherwise known as the aptly named “口水鸡” (Kou Shui Ji), Shang Social's rendition of this classic will have your mouth salivating from the aroma of tender poached chicken swimming in fragrant peppercorn and chilli infused oil.

Cooked for 24 hours, the wobbly chunks of fatty pork belly were practically glistening under the sheen of caramelised, sticky sauce. Although I generally steer clear of "nian gao" (or Chinese New Year cake), I'm glad I tried these - the chewy squares of glutinous rice flour cake had a very enjoyable texture and seem to have been fried to achieve a slightly crispy exterior.

The sweet and smoky aroma wafting off the freshly barbecued crustacean was most inviting, pity there wasn’t enough of the unagi sauce to apply to what little meat there was within this tiny but expensive crab.

Fragrant and moreish, the squid ink-stained slices tasted like an upmarket version of Old Chang Kee sotong balls, which is to say, they were good.

Shao’s better known for its roast and BBQ dishes, but don’t pass up the chance to order this vegetarian winner. Piping hot batons of crispy on the outside, fluffy within yam are drenched in a rich salted egg sauce enlivened with cut chilli and curry leaves. We wiped the plate clean.

Frankel neighbourhood eatery Shao is a casual Teochew restaurant specialising in roasts and barbecue meats. Their pork belly is not the best we’ve had, but still stands up to the test. Crunchy crackling and a good ratio of fat to meat works in its favour, but it would definitely have benefitted from being more tender.
