This intimate 16-seater spot in Upper Serangoon is perfect for vegans and vegetarians. Helmed by the folks behind The Humble Loaf and Gastrosmiths, expect tasty and comforting food. Have the saffron-infused Fenugreek White Wine Curry ($20) or the Heritage Eggs ($19) served with lovely bread thick, garlicky pickled shallot beurre blanc and sautéed spinach.

Fried rice is my guilty pleasure. I don’t even like glass prawns but the fact that this fried rice has big fried ikan billis inside made it so tasty and perfect. There’s lots of wok hey and they really don’t stinge on the ingredients so every bite is just as satisfying. Eating it with the slightly sweet sauce from the ginger spring onion frog makes it even better. I love it!

This frog porridge is always super crowded even though parking here is quite the nightmare. And for good reason! Their frog porridge is really good and they give really chunky frogs at a cheaper price than other places. I like the ginger and spring onion version the best because the gloopy sauce is super tasty with warm plain porridge. You can also get other stuff like their BBQ stingray and other seafood, although the squid we tried wasn’t that great.

Poached Eggs, Jamon Serrano, Pickled Shallot Beurre Blanc, Sautéed Spinach, Chives.

From Allium, a new concept by the folks behind the now-defunct The Humble Loaf and subsequenty, Gastrosmiths (previously located at Bugis along Tan Quee Lan Street before its last move into i12 Katong)— now located at Kensington Square off Jalan Lokam (also along Upper Serangoon Road) serving brunch (ala-carte) and dinner (set menu, reservations required).

The Heritage Eggs is an item that goes back to their days being The Humble Loaf at Mountbatten Shopping Centre; a throwback to their Not-So-Humble Eggs back then, the Heritage Eggs showcases their growth from what they were back then to now — still essentially the same inspiration behind the traditional local breakfast with a modern twist, yet with an emphasis of premium and quality produce at play here. Served with slices of bread that they actually baked in-house here, the bread comes light and fluffy; soaks up all of that amazing sauce that comes with the eggs — the Pickled Shallot Beurre Blanc carries an incredibly umami punch that is thick, garlicky and buttery yet with a slight tang that helps to cut through that richness. Otherwise, the bits of Jamon Serrano helps to add a hint of savouriness typical of cured meat, while the sauteed Spinach provides for a wholesome feel for the dish with a crunch; the eggs being all oozy with the yolks eagerly bursting with a poke by a fork. Really enjoyed how hearty this dish is, and pretty amazing to see how Allium had stuck to their roots ever since they had ever started as The Humble Loaf, providing patrons with mod-Sin creations with a twist that not only works, but also being incredibly refined.

Happy to see how the folks behind Allium had come so far; a place I would pretty much be back to check out the other items they have on the menu — congratulations on the opening on the new space, and great to see them back in business better and stronger, with a new direction whilst staying true to what they had always been all this while.

We know there're several famous prawn noodles in Singapore - Wah Kee (Pek Kio), Da Dong (Joo Chiat), Hoe Nam River South (Tai Thong Crescent), Albert Street (Old Airport), Whitley Road (Old Airport), Beach Road (East Coast), Blanco Court (Beach Road), 545 Whampoa (Tekka), Jalan Sultan (Kallang), Fresh Taste Big Prawn (Zion Road), and Noo Cheng (Adam Road). I've tried them all, because out of all hawker we have, prawn noodles was my favorite hawker food.
🔸
But notice that these are mostly in the East area of Singapore. For North/Northeast dwellers like myself, I look to Blanco Prawn Noodle at Jalan Kaya, or Geylang Prawn Noodle at Upper Paya Lebar Road.
🔸
In terms of style, it's similar to Beach Road, Jalan Sultan and Blanco Court, although this is less robust. Prawns are fresh, and you can choose from other pork ingredients such as pig's tail and pork ribs. You can also order fried 虾饼 from the stall within the same coffee shop.
🔸
If you stay in the East, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to good (and better) prawn mee. But this is a good alternative if the East is too far for you.

Very delicious food at affordable prices for their standards!!!! Definitely will come back here.

One of those branded prawn mee where they do things very efficiently but also too commercially. Noodles, seasoning and soup were okay, but ribs were disappointing. Unless their prawns are out-of-this-world, this place is overrated.

FUZE’s signature Blend It Up Pizza’s crispy crust. It almost tasted like a fragrant toasted naan.

Googled where to eat near Bartley and this came up! It was quite a controversy as to who was the first Katong Laksa.. as it turns out Janggut Laksa is the first. Drama aside. I quite enjoyed this bowl of Crayfish Laksa, although not cheap at $9.50 but the fresh crayfish was worth the buck! The crayfish meat can be easily peeled from the shell, attest to the fact that it is fresh. What makes a good bowl of laksa is the gravy. The gravy here is creamy and not that spicy which suits my palate really well. Can taste the umami from the prawns in it as well! Will be back!

Ordered 4 dishes here: Saturday Beef Burger, Sambal fish, Grilled Pork Collar, and BBQ Chicken Leg. Loved the food here, and it’s even better with Burpple’s one for one.

Only downside: they don’t provide water... so be sure to bring your own!

Mushroom Bacon Bomb ($10)
The bacon tastes good but the mushroom for me is much more amazing! It's juicy and truly a bomb when you bite it! The smells are great and complement with cheese on top of the mushroom. But for me bacon and cheese are a bit too heavy together, if it's just bits of bacon might be better for me. My friend love the bacon so much since it's big tho.

Great place with great food! The only downside of this place is in the afternoon it's superly dim. Maybe they want to save the electricity.

Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup ($5)
Another must try in here! The mushroom soup is soooo creamy and you can really taste the mushroom! Served with crispy, savory, and delicious garlic bread. This is totally worth the money!
