Quality is all right, and serving is generous, but why are we always dodging into the hidey hole of an imagined good old day?
This is a light and refreshing appetizer with a bit of creaminess and some spicy kick.
I like how refreshing the Julienne iceberg lettuce was, and tomato concasse which was tossed with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper. It was then topped with generosity chunks of blue swimmer crab lumps, which was mixed with house made Louis dressing.. A little creamy and a bit spicy.

The newly opened @dear.nesuto along Tras Street offers many many gorgeous pastries that me and @the_xw took a long while to decide what to get.
Pretty in pink would be the Blush Berry ($9) - interesting dessert to have as it feels like an egg with a pink white chocolate shell with wobbly Greek yoghurt mousse within! Encased within was raspberry compote and a vanilla rice puff giving it a nice texture. Their desserts were light yet well balanced! This is well paired with Dong Ding (Oolong base Tea) recommended in their menu.
An ice cream sandwich with candied bacon and infused bowmore 18 year is the way to end all lunches. Jam pack with flavours, the dessert is a wonderful overload of sweetness and an excellent foil to that Iberico pork chop. People will remember this combination for awhile.
Its minimalist look disguised the intensity of flavours from the cure and the meat as well as the pickled ume. Paired with the 18 year @bowmoredistillery Travelers series gives it that 4th dimension of sensory experience. If you like bourbon, the 15 year plays nicely with this as well.
Wanted to go for their toasts initially, but they don't seem to have bread thus went for the supplied Kuehs that they have on display. Both kuehs are pretty decent; the Ang Ku Kueh comes smaller than the usual but comes with quite a generous amount of green bean filling (a peanut variant is also available). The Pandan Kueh was also rather decent, though it came with a light (rubbery?) aftertaste that wasn't really up my alley. Would still want to give their toasts and mains a try another time though!
Admittedly, just reading the menu of what goes into the Fatcow Premium Donburi had me whimpering in excitement.
At $98++, it is possibly the most decadent Japanese don (rice bowl) I have had to date. Served on a bed of rice were:
- A slab of Wagyu steak (I asked for mine to be done medium-rare and it was perfect)
- Pan-seared chunks of creamy foie gras
- Bafun uni
- Onsen egg
As the portion for this a la carte item is a little larger than the rice bowls from the set lunch menu, I'd say this is a good choice if you're famished or in the mood to indulge.
As a pioneer in serving chilled crab, this signature cold crab ($31/pc, seasonal price) at Lee Do Restaurant deserves a thumb up.
Commonly perceived as a Teochew dish, this was traditionally served as part of the fuzhou cuisine here. The meat is fresh, sweet and easily comes off the shell. For those who aren't used to having chilled crab, I say give this a try!
Thank you @leedorestaurant for having us and @justinfoodprints for inviting me.

A simple combination of ingredients that exudes such decadence - the smooth, creamy butter and that umami packed kombu. Would you be jealous if I told you I made my own kombu butter and am chomping on toasted sourdough with a very generous serving of it. Mmmmm... #burpple #lollasg
From Modus, a relatively new stall at The Food Inn at Esplanade Xchange; they serve up grain bowls (or plates), all of them served with quinoa along with a selection of pre-defined condiments according to the options one chooses.
The Japanese Bowl comes with Aburi Salmon, Tsukemono, Corn Kernel and Furikake. Quinoa was well-prepared; fluffy and light without any unpleasant gritty bits around, while the corn helps to add a little sweetness to every spoonful. Aburi Salmon carried a little smokiness from the torching. The entire dish has its flavours ante up by the Furikake and the sour Tsukemono (Japanese pickled vegetables that gives it a serious kick with its intense tanginess) while the optional poached egg (charged at 50 cents) was a little short of oozy, flowy action that would help flavour up the quinoa.
This is another dish to expect from Yum Cha's upcoming Mother's Day Special Set Menu. A slice of scallop with a ball of prawn stuffing on the top and deep fried with salted egg. It's recommended to eat together with the piece of lettuce, which indeed helped to balance out the flavors. The salted egg coating was rather rich but we were just hoping for a slightly thicker cut of scallop. You can also order this ala carte at $14.80 for 3 pieces.
The Mother's Day Special Set Menu will be available from 1st to 14th May at both Yum Cha Chinatown and Changi.
A huge thank you to Adam from @yumchasg for hosting us and @burpple for the kind invite! 🙆🏻
