An unassuming small shop space located in the Bukit Gombak neighborhood, Coconut & Fam serves coconut shakes that could easily compete with bigger brands and even taste better than some of them! For every new coconut shake brand, Iโ€™d always give the original flavour a try for the very first time. Other than how value for money their coconut shakes are given the large was really larger than usual, the overall taste and texture were quite balanced. Creaminess was just right, and the coconut bits were generously added. You can also customise the sweetness level to your liking. They also provide 2 small tables in front of the shop space should you want to enjoy and chill over their coconut shakes.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 large coconut shakes at the price of just 1! Mindblowingly $5 for 2 large cups which meant that it was only $2.50 for such a quality drink! Found my new favourite coconut shake!

Popped-by the cloud kitchen for a bowl of chirashi don with loads of diced salmon, tuna, octopus, shrimp thatโ€™s lightly torched, tossed with mentaiko sauce and topped off tobiko, ikura and spring onions. Lovingโ€™ it. โฃ๏ธ

Though the food was not too bad, the long black isnโ€™t to my liking. The initial taste was strong and bold however the aftertaste was a bit too acidic for me.

Linguine, fresh clams, white wine, garlic, chilli padi.
Was pleasantly surprised that the linguine was al dente and they did not over do it. Sauce was creamy, garlicky and could taste the white wine. Clams portion was not too bad however there were a few that were sandy.
Overall, it was a good plate of vongole linguine.

Don't understand estimate this humbling looking deep fry pork belly. It is crispy, gummy, flavourful for a appetizer especially to go with a glass of Singa Beer or goes with one of the dishes from this homey Thai kitchen which is specialized in Thai Street Food. They also serve awesome deep fry garlicky pork which is very good too.

We ordered the "Train" fry rice out of curiosity. The plate comes with 2 king size prawn, squid & some kai lan too. It resemble the Chinese Claypot Rice but without the susage & wax meat. Full of flavors & loaded with wok hei. Super tasty, every bite tastes heavenly, we just can't put down the spoon.

With history stretching back to 1945, this legendary stall was formerly at Hong Lim Food Centre, but relocated to the West in 2016 as the founder's 4th son took over the helm.
.
They're known for their Chinese Teochew pork dumplings, the slippery thin skin holding a juicy ball of minced pork with meaty sweet savoury flavour.
.
The gravy is intentionally strong, punchy with sour tangy salty spice flavour from the quality black vinegar, light soy sauce, and sambal chili paste.
.
The crunchy fried sole fish lends a fishy savoury salty contrast to the tender minced pork with sweet savoury flavour, and the succulent soy braised shiitake mushrooms with earthy salty vegetal flavour.
.
The soup is clear but rather light on taste. Not many come close to this BCM standard in the West, so expect queues of up to 30 minutes during peak periods as each bowl is prepared from scratch.

Location: 3.5/5
10-15 minutes walk from the nearest MRT station, otherwise bus should be available to the nearby bus stop.

Mains & Side Dish: 4/5

๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ถ & ๐—–๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ ($15.80)
Quite creamy but the cheese wasnโ€™t very strong hence, lacking in flavour.

๐—›๐—ฎ๐—บ & ๐—ฃ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ($19.80)
The online menu doesnโ€™t do it any justice, actual food looks better than the online one. The pizza was not bad, flavourful and crust is thin as well.

๐—ง๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ($13.80)
Truffle comes from the truffle mayo itself but it felt like regular mayo with truffle flavouring, nonetheless, it tasted pretty good.

Drinks: 3/5

๐— ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ธ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ($10.50)
Canโ€™t go wrong with milkshakes, but not worth the price paid. The size of the milkshake is smaller than the other drinks.

Overall: Might return since the food is actually not bad, but not on a weekend lunch since the food choices are pretty limited as the Mains are only available after 3pm on Weekends.

Can you believe that you could now find teishoku in coffee shop? Thanks to Maruhachi for offering affordable Japanese foods around our neighbourhoods.

They have expanded to a few outlets recently, with one outlet located in Bukit Gombak area.

While they specialise with their curry and donburi, Iโ€™m quite surprised to see them serving teishoku as well. A traditional Japanese meal with tonkotsu set menu served with Japanese rice and miso soup.

The pork katsu was super crunchy and juicy and consider very cheap for only $11.80.

A restaurant located in a HDB estate with simple decor, it makes up for its unpretentiousness with great tasting food and excellent service.

We ordered Dip Part Platter $18.90 which comes with pita bread and 4 different dips (spicy feta, cod roe l, roasted egg plant and yogurt) for sharing. Also ordered a Herb Rub Beef Wrap $17.90, a Herb Beef Skewer (20.90) and a Lamb Skewer ($19.90).

The Dip Party Platter consists of 13 pieces of quadrant cut pita bread. I liked the Cod Roe Dip and Roasted Egg Plant Dip especially. The Herb Rub Beef and the Beef skewers were over cooked, with the beef borderline leathery in texture. The lamb was done just nice and no gaminess was detected.

I think I need to come back for more pita bread and also try their Htapodi (grilled octopus).

I am not into Carbonaras but since my friend was feeling it, we decided to share the Italian Carbonara here. Spaghetti tossed in cured egg yolk, garlic, bacon, parmesan cheese and finally topped with a poached egg. Perhaps the egg taste here was stronger than the usual carbonaras that come across as creamy cheesy, hence I could actually accept it. The overall flavor was decent too, but what was disappointing was the hardness of the spaghetti. Possibly overcooked.
