Not bad, the filling was q generous

PS rlly happy they opened an outlet inSG, ik I'm late to the party but still

Might be one of my favourite red bean fillings, idk why but theirs has a really good flavour. I suspect there's honey added to the red bean paste. (Y)

Their excellent red bean w chewy mochi. So dang good, their bread is definitely worth the price. Not much matcha taste, which was fine by me

Jewel is empty now so this is a good time to visit. 5mins queue is pretty shiok

Bacon was crisp but abit dry, shack sauce was basically mayo but Tangier and got some mustard I think. The chopped cherry pepper was fine, luckily there's minimal heat and I heard some people had theirs cold. I really don't like the brioche bun tho, the meat and the sauce need to be extra gao to justify a brioche, else the butteriness and the density of the bun is unchecked. Overall a passable burger, slightly overpriced.

Rant:
My image of shake shack has always been a decent fast food chain. Finally I had a chance to try at the store in singapore and it didn't change my opinion. If you've never paid for a gourmet burger(>15) before, ofc this is gonna be the best burger you've had. And a lot of people proclaiming that will feed into the hype. So yes it's overhyped, if you really love burgers go get a proper one. Then again can't really blame any place for the hype they generate, they're not responsible for it(the crowd is)

Like how they sell it by the piece, instead of having to order a huge portion. Wouldn't have ordered it otherwise, so it's a great business decision

Steamed upon order(yes, even the meat). Pretty tender, it breaks apart if u use chopsticks to pick it up, that's why they give you plastic gloves on both hands. Not bad, rather mild sweet flavours, but maybe not stunning enough to be a signature

Cold water is chargeable at 0.3++

Super high expectations from the pictures and I gotta say the sauce didn't disappoint. Delightfully deep sweet and savoury flavours from the intense soy sauce, with a whiff of heat from the chili(don't worry, you don't taste it AT ALL, it's a family friendly restaurant). Unfortunately the pork belly was very tough. Still edible, esp when paired w that supreme sauce

P.S. there really shld be tipping culture I feel. A blanket 10% doesn't cut it, when these people have excellent service and other places might be really cold/annoyed/can't speak clearly

Sausage was complex even though I didn't like the texture. It was abit hard

Char siew had a good balance of fats and meat, and was very tender too. Got some well charred bits on the outside. Overall a very good choice

Duck had a slightly crispy skin, and very well rendered fats. They do live up to their name of a roast duck place

Ultimately, I would say they're deserving of the price. Not bad

P.S. chili sauce was normal chicken rice chili despite the interesting colour

From the ‘85 Western Food’ Stall.
It was sufficiently delicious but the portion for $6.50 was a tad too small as I believe I can find bigger portions elsewhere! The only thing that was generous was the black pepper sauce at the side; but overall, chicken, albeit looking big, was thin and the portion of sides were pretty small. Nonetheless, it’s still a decent dish.

From Shanghai Xiao Long Bao stall, which is bustling for their famous Xiao Long Bao, which can be sold out before the day ends. When I went, they only were selling noodles, so I went for their zha Jiang mian. For $3.50, it was a small portion of not too thick, well textured noodles, but extremely dry. There was essentially no sauce at all, and I solved this with the chilli that they provided. I must say that the chilli was slightly spicy and sour which really gave an added layer to the zha Jiang mian. I can’t imagine how dry it would’ve been without the chilli, and I was personally disappointed by how it was initially served; it was only the chilli that gave saving grace. But for $3.50, I don’t wish to expect much as well!

A burger that costs $30++ a pop? It better be good. But unfortunately it was not the best I had. Ask for medium rare so that it will be medium done when the burger is served to you. The sandwich on the other was just alright. We had their coffee at other branches which was just so so, so we didn’t have any
This time. Overall the meal for 2 cost $65++ with two mains, nothing to rave about but view is nice, near the sea. Perhaps that is what you are paying for. But trust me, once it’s enough. You can get better food elsewhere with that kinda price tag.

Fusion restaurant. With Beyond, the price was pretty affordable and food was good. Great ambience too, located facing the jewel fountain.
