Pricey, which is expected of Korean pancakes, yet very ordinary. A restaurant marked by atrocious service at the counter - they take reservations but can't deliver tables on time - and great service at the table.

The quality explains the hype. The soft, crunchy skin goes well with the generous filling and it is affordable too! The chili is quite strong but does not overpower the filling.

Teochew Porridge - good for anytime of the day!

Teo Heng Teochew Porridge has been around for many years. Their home-made fish cake has always been one of their signature dishes. They were super soft yet springy. When dipped into the chilli sauce, blended with garlic and vinegar, superb!

They are also famous for their fishes. We chose the garoupa. The fresh fish were simply dunked into a pot of boiling stock with preserved mustard/salted vegetable soup, and then served with a ladle of the salted vegetable over the fish. The fish was tender, slightly sweet and salty, just simply good with plain porridge.

Overall a nice place for a porridge with everything made from scratch, and fresh, quality food.

Rate:4.6/5

Spicy marinated chicken and spicy pork belly. A restaurant marked by atrocious service at the counter - they take reservations but can't deliver tables on time - and great service at the table. Considering the meats are standard fare, this is quite an average buffet.

(Clockwise from top left) Beef brisket, pork belly, pork shoulder loin, marinated chicken, marinated pork shoulder loin, bulgogi. A restaurant marked by atrocious service at the counter - they take reservations but can't deliver tables on time - and great service at the table. The brisket was like shabu and the best, but also the only meat with a limit. Considering the other meats are standard fare, this is quite an average buffet. I love pork belly, but don't waste time on the other pork.

Not cos you're drunk but cos the Fleeting Clouds ($13hh/$18) combined a wheaty goodness with a light sweetness that makes you feel like you're staring down at a wheat field. Very relaxing and easy to drink.

A picture speaks a thousand words. And @theguildsingapore's 𝗠𝗮𝗰 & 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗲𝘀𝗲 ($21) cajoles rather enticingly with its sensual shades of house-cured-egg tangerine, bleeding seamlessly into scintillating hues of cheesy, creamy gold. 🥵🧀🍳
-
No frills, just a nice bite and silky finish befitting of its cheesy opulence. Precisely what I envision a great Mac & Cheese to be like. Chase it with swigs of scrumptious @youngmastersg pours ($13) off their happy hour menu (4pm-8pm) and that's real happiness. ✨

𝗦𝗮𝗸 𝗞𝗲𝗶 𝗠𝗮 (or “萨其马") is a snack that I'd enjoyed in my childhood. Sadly, Pan Ji is now Singapore's last surviving stall making it fresh. Despite being located amongst other hawker stalls plastered with Michelin accolades, it's still my favourite at Chinatown Complex.
-
It might be just chunky batter melded together with sugar syrup, but this snack was magically loaded with a wealth of addictively fragrant egginess and malty caramelisation.
-
Once you've savoured that lightly airy crunch that's nicely punctuated with a sticky chewiness from the sugar, you'd find yourself popping in piece after piece. The supermarket variant really doesn't compare.
-
Their operating hours have been shortening year after year. If you haven't, it's worth a trip down before handmade Sak Kei Ma is rendered extinct by the proverbial asteroid that is modernisation.

A day turned into a week, a week into a month. The day finally came — the @burntends.bakery_sg donuts finally in my hands. Prolonged pining can turn one crazy, so be warned of a grueling month-long wait.
-
Each bite of the 𝗺𝗶𝘅𝗲𝗱 𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗱 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝘂𝘁𝘀 ($24/half doz) was softer than a cloud and underscored by a delicate chew. Amongst the three fillings, the passionfruit curd popped out with its spiritedly citric persuasion which cut right through the sweetness. Vanilla was light with just the right amount of sweetness. Nutella was... Well, nutella .
-
Truly blissful little treats though not quite the culinary revelation, which they admittedly don’t need to be. If you manage your expectations despite the long wait, these are well worth the money.

Was cautiously optimistic of the hype surrounding @burntends.bakery_sg's 𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗼 𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗼𝘀𝗮𝘂𝗿 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝘂𝘁𝘀 ($24/half doz) because of milo's inherent cloyingness. I have to admit that these exceeded milo expectations.
-
Lusciously thick and luxuriously loaded with malty flavours, the milo cream was as decadent as decadence comes. If you're also scared they'd taste like diabeetus, donut worry. It's still mildly cloying but not unreasonably so.
-
I'd argue original mixed variants were still better and truly the bomb...oloni. But these are proof that local flavours can be more than just half-baked gimmicks at the hands of talented chefs. Definitely need to try the new pandan flavour they are coming out with.

A restaurant marked by atrocious service at the counter - they take reservations but can't deliver tables on time - and great service at the table.

Tried this during their opening promo. I was really excited to try their Iberico Bellota as @gochiso_shokudo branded it as “wagyu” of pork.

After a long queue, we finally got seated and I was anticipating the warm, tender and melt-in-the-mouth deep fried pork katsu. However, I was disappointed beyond words!!

To get started, the katsu wasn’t even warm when served. It’s cold. Most importantly, the meat was really tough and nowhere near “melt-in-your-mouth texture” as branded. It’s was rather tough to chew.

On the upside, the katsu was of suitable thickness and the exterior were crisp and goes well with the standard tonkatsu sauce and ground sesame powder.
