Ribs portion was actually decent, and the meat tore apart so easily as it was so soft and tender. The skin was also roasted till crisp. There were a lot of fats and was oily, but very flavourful.

Linguine was creamy, spicy and flavourful. Dish was decent for its price.

Portion was pretty small, but it was really unique and flavourful. Chicken was stuffed with mushrooms and chestnut and roasted till crisp. There was also some creamy mash potato that was garnished. Decent but would appreciate a bigger portion!

Got it as a gift so I don’t really know the names and price of the muffins. The lotus muffin was delicious!! The muffin was topped with lotus biscuits and probably some cookie butter, and the more I ate I received the surprise centre filling which was chocolate and more cookie butter! Only downside was the muffin itself was a little dry but the topping and filling made up for it! The green tea muffin was topped with crumble bits which added a good texture and made the muffin look so good.

Hidden within Alexandra Technopark, unless your work around here; you will never know there’s such place here without doing your research.

They offered sando and don to go with. There’s limited seating in the shop but you could find plenty of seats outdoor or in any of the building lobby beside it.

The yuzu yakitori sandwich was surprisingly very tasty and juicy. It comes with a chicken thigh marinated with yuzu pepper, stuffed with cheese, overeasy egg and furikake garlic aoli.

Treated myself to this gorgeous stuffed squid from Opio Kitchen & Bar. It comes packed with a generous amount of barley risotto and when you cut the squid open, this just sensually oozes out. Beautiful. Risotto was excellent and what impressed me even more was the texture of the squid itself. It’s a genius combination and I’m now curious to see how the rest of their risotto dishes fare

Only came here for the XLB, left with their beef brisket noodles and red bean pancake. Food is very authentic and exceeded my expectations and what made the experience better was the owners — a very humble couple who hail from China.

Red bean pancake taste very nostalgic. Could be crispier, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.

Noodles were Al dente even though I spent some time taking photos and the beef was extremely tender and juicy, did not hurt my teeth when I chewed on them.

Got this from SweeT.Rex for just $5 - inclusive of 2 pancakes, maple syrup, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This is a very good deal, so cheap yet very fluffy and tastes good. (I think it’s even fluffier than the soufflé pancakes I’ve tried in some other cafes 🙊🙊). The vanilla ice cream goes well with the pancakes too. Not sure which brand they’re holding or whether it’s their own, but it’s also very good. Ordered a separate serving topped with chocolate syrup ☺️

Suggest to order as soon as you reach the hawker centre as queue can sometimes be long and the waiting time after ordering is around 20 minutes. Will be in time post your lunch 😉

Had this Sausage Cheese Swiss Rosti set lunch for $18.90++ (comes with iced lemon tea). Rosti’s seasoning is a bit salty, though I don’t think it had to do with the cheese cause I enjoyed that part a lot 😋 sides were just normal, including the sausage, making it a bit overpriced for me. There were other cheaper set lunch options (from $13.90++) which might be more worth the price.

Ordered a scoop of Earl Grey Lavender as well ($2.90++, special price if you order a set lunch). This has a strong early grey taste which I really liked. Very creamy too.

Place was packed when I came, but it still had a very charming and homey cafe ambience. Would probably come back and stay here for a long time and just eat loads of gelato 😂

The barley risotto is mind blowing good! The barley risotto is cooked to perfection, has a very nice chewy texture and it’s very flavorful with the saffron base. It’s a little creamy, herby and savory. The scallop is plump, fresh and sweet!

Another to go for is their XO carrot cake. Chunky carrot cake fried with generous amount of egg and bean sprouts giving it that crisp and crunchy texture. It has a little nice wok hey taste to it too!

Not the most easily accessible place, but pretty decent food that’s worth a try!
