But time and chance happen to them all. This is especially true when you’ve got a pandemic that comes straight outta nowhere and shuts down entire countries. It’s especially bad if you’ve just sunk an enormous amount of capital into starting up a swanky new place, such as in the case of @wearehopstationsg.⠀

When I visited last month, the Hop Fish & Chips ($18++) were screaming my name and it wouldn’t stop until I chose it. ‘Twas a commendable choice, as one rarely ever goes wrong with two flaky fish fillets coated with a crunchy beer batter and deep fried to glorious golden perfection. While I detest peas, the mashed peas on the side were sumptuous & zesty enough to make me tolerate it.

It definitely needs more of that tantalising tartar sauce, and both the fish & chips do need some salt and vinegar shaken (not stirred) over it. Still, it’s a fabulous fix of fish & chips, and if they manage to maintain their standards, I would definitely return for it once the lockdown is over.

Pulled-Pork Egg Benedict... Is huge in portion, great taste and nice service staff they have ( only the one at Capital Tower, the one at Hong Leong Building is horrible) choose wisely, you pay the same price for the same thing but different service changes your mood of dining 😊
Throwback before Covid...

The menu is 100% vegetarian and 100% halal - mostly sandwiches in Pita (Arabic) bread, salads and dips. Everything is prepared on site daily except for their Pita bread. Their Pita is freshly baked every morning from a local bakery. And their falafels are prepared using fresh herbs that are baked instead of fried for healthy option. .

I enjoyed the Pita bread with Fava beans from the single platter ($15 comes with a drink). You can taste the freshness of their Pita bread. For deliveries within a 5km radius, there's a $2.50 fee and free above $40. Deliveries outside a 5km radius, there's a $6 fee and free delivery for orders above $70.

This place serves xiaolongbao and the buffets include free flow xiaolongbao too. The skin isni too thick and the soup inside is tasty too.

It's nice to have steamboat here in small pots, there's a wide variety of ingredients here and service is good as well. The soup and xiao long bao is one for one on Burpple Beyond during lunch time. They have buffets at reasonable prices too!

These were enjoyed in better times before the circuit breaker :)

Their signature pumpkin pancakes that ran out of pumpkin (no choice la hor with covid times) but still tasted really good!! Pancake (just one giant one) was thick and fragrant with enough smoked salmon, egg and Hollandaise to go along with so it was not too dry. Am not really a coffee person but the almond latte was really smooth with subtle notes of almond.

Enjoyed both! Cafe space was pretty and chill too in a quiet area of cross street exchange. Will be back in better times!

I would prefer a more intense, nuttier and earthier note of pistachio instead. On the other hand, the bitter coffee-soaked finger biscuits gave a relatively sharp contrast to the dessert. Nevertheless, @GroupTherapyCafe offers a range of pretty interesting desserts so I’m not losing faith in them yet!

Melt-in-your-mouth beef chashu made from beef short plate marinated in ICHIKOKUDO’s special recipe. Natural beef fats emulsified into the broth adds complexity, mouthfeel and umami without being overpowering.

What you can find in the bowl are beef chashu, flavored egg, bamboo shoots, woodear mushrooms, chopped green onion, dried seaweed and shredded pink ginger.

What I don’t like was the serving wasn’t hot enough and the soup base was just way too savoury for me. $16.90++

I must also mention the trio of appetisers we started with: a fresh, zingy salad, a little cube of fish jelly, and a comforting braised wagyu in red miso which left me wanting more.

The meal concluded with miso soup – could've done with slightly less salt – and a refreshing plum shiso leaf sorbet.

You'd be hard-pressed to find an omakase meal as value-for-money as Miraku's 15 Course Lunch ($68).

Expect hints of citrus and a myriad of delightful textures. Portions are on the smaller side, but the meal left me feeling satiated. It was, to put it simply, "just nice",

I could go on and on about the gloriously fatty ootoro – marbled, pink, and pale – and the smooth and luscious mouthfeel of the wagyu sukiyaki with onsen egg.

But of course, how could I not wax lyrical about the pièce de résistance, uni nigiri? It was akin to an ocean's kiss, its briny sweetness unparalleled by any other.

My favorite steamboat for the moment. Everything was prefect. You can order the serving in very small portions to previous waste of food. The fatty slice beef is the best. Even the lean pork was good too. The xiao long bao was better than some popular brand out there and it’s free flow.

My only complain is the sauce have very little choices.

As usual it's nice.
But be warn that if you choose a cooked veg instead, you will incur extra cost.

I didn't know, so I had a rude shock.
