Favourite dish of the night. The cabbage was stewed till it was really soft, and the gravy went well with it without being too salty. In fact, soft, full of gravy and accompanied by dried scallops are three things that describe many things on the menu. Everything we had was delicious, and at reasonable prices with no service charge.

If y’all didn’t already know, @alchemist.sg has opened its newest outlet at Gotham City, a mere stone’s throw away from my sweatshop. To go with the gothic architecture of the building, the seating area of the café is also done up in the gothic style, while the counter & brewing area is in the more familiar brutalist style that Alchemist usually does.

Not gonna lie, ever since being eternally spoiled by Australian coffees, I only really found one (now defunct) coffee joint that could even approach that high standard. However, Alchemist might be the first to achieve parity in quality with the fabled ‘strayan café cuppas. I got an iced mocha ($6.50) that was brewed using their proprietary bean blend called Dark Matter. This all Brazilian beauty is mildly acidic but intensely chocolatey, slightly nutty with a little sweet aftertaste. In other words, Alchemist’s mocha is probably the best damn mocha I’ve had in Singapore. ⠀

It’s a beyond perfect pick me up, and I foresee myself regularly dumping a fair chunk of cash at these amazing caffeine alchemists in the future.

People say Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng but I prefer this. The stock used is good, wok hei could be more prominent but even without it it still is decent. They also let you put as much lard as you want which I like even though it’s bad for me.

Finally tried wow wow west at ABC brickworks and... not a fan. My chicken was quite over cooked. It was a thigh cut but they somehow managed to cook it till the edges were rock hard. Have to hand it to them though, portion sizes were pretty massive.

Newly opened outlet, Alchemist (The Mill) is located within an old neighbourhood of Bukit Merah, in between industrial buildings. I reckon that's the direction they're going towards.

The menu is simple - black, white, chocolate, filter, iced or hot.

They serve 2 espresso beans options - the usual Dark Matter, Brazil & Colombia mix & Don Alfonso, a Costa Rico mix.

The white with Dark Matter brings out the chocolate-y notes of the beans, with a caramel-like sweet ending notes, which makes it easy on the palate.

Heard good reviews about this western food and decided to try it out on a Saturday night. It was such a popular place that we queued and waited for the food for half an hour. Thank God, we were one of the last few customers to order. They closed and started chasing customers away by 8pm.

Worth the wait, although I thought it’s a little dry. Food is in a huge portion but definitely value for money, for $8 only.

Once among my favourite lunch spots, WFH meant I haven't been back since early last year. I picked my usual favourites, such as the meatball, hash brown, brinjal with fish paste, shiitake mushroom with fish paste, and napa cabbage. But they have a new item that should be a hit - the circular and flat piece in the middle that tasted like a mix of yam and mushroom. I was a bit greedy with condiments hahaha.

A bit overhyped. It did achieve the numb of mala. But it's the numb I don't like haha. I would say I prefer other shaker flavours.

One of the best chendol in SG? Yes agreed. The gula melaka in this 𝐏𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐥 (~𝐒𝐆𝐃𝟐) was rly thiiccc - aka what’s needed in a 💯 chendol. So be warned: those who have lighter palates might not like this as much. For me though, I would also have liked it to be less icy. But other than that, definitely give this place a try. Even if you’re not coming here for Chendol, they are good for everything else I think bc I persistently see a queue at the shop.

OVERALL: 4.25/5

Overall, this is a great plate of wonton mee. The highlight was the char siew which was caramelised on the outside and tender. The dark soy sauce was satisfying though the noodle was not springy enough. Wonton was sweet and the soup is good too. $3.50 is cheap for such a big portion

The minced meat noodle tasted better than it looked, and I was pleasantly surprised.
