This may not be industrial ulu but it's certainly suburban ulu. There's a lot of good things going for this prawn mee. First, its soup was special. It's not only rich, there's a rawness to it associated with street food. It's that sensation you get when eating something dodgy but so good you close one eye. And look at it - I've never seen soup so deep it has not two but three layers. Second, this might be the oiliest lard I've eaten, in keeping with the first point. There's dry and mild lard, there's dry and umami lard, and there's this. The stall keeps it up by showering enough for you to accompany every mouthful of noodles. This is a very generous bowl, which ironically might have diluted the very interesting seasoning. Typical cheap river prawns were done very well, but the pork slices were almost repulsive.

Grilled Pork Chop (S$5.90)
Served with Mushroom Rice and Grilled Herb Potatoes
Topup S$1 for Soup of The Day
Black Mussels (S$6.50)

Started to queue 12 minutes before it opened at 12pm with at least 10 people in front of me. Finally paid for my order at 12.48pm. Servings huge. The sauce in the mussels was way too salty.

IRVINS X Pezzo Collaboration

Got to try all the meats and pasta at one go. Definitely worth the money especially so when you have the Burrple Beyond deal.

Mixed Pig’s Organ Braised Mee Sua (S$5)

For someone who seldom eat liver it was quite nice.

Only got pig’s stomach and pig’s liver. Where’s the lean meat and intestines?

Bought the Pork Quesadilla ($18) and Mexican chicken stew ($18) with 2 drinks! The pork quesadilla was amazing! It was crispy and they were generous with the cheese. As for the chicken stew, it was alright only! Overall, would come back for the 1 for 1 but without it, might need to think twice cause it’s quite pricey.

Caught wind of the new MAO King Tavern — a collaboration between the folks of Slake and D.Lab by Durian Edition which has taken over the premises of Slake at 15 Swan Lake Avenue; the space is interestingly decked out like a Japanese Izakaya, which is a fitting theme considering how they actually do carry an Musang King Ale (yes, durian and alcohol — try at your own risk!) brewed by the folks behind The 1925 Brewing Co., apart from serving up durian-infused desserts as well as some of the bar bites from Slake’s menu.

We were rather stuffed considering how we have hopped around a number of places and that MAO King Tavern was the last stop for the day (we visited on a weekend night), so we ended up forgoing the cakes and went for the Crispy Durian Bomb (almost a more well-executed version of KFC’s Golden Durian Mochi featuring actual durian mousse) and the Crispy Egg Tarts alongside the Fully-Loaded Chye Poh Fries and Har Jeong Chicken. Coming in a set of three, this was apt as they may be as a dessert ending to a tapas meal just like how they would be at a dim sum establishment; the crispy egg tarts do come with a flaky and buttery texture, and the egg curd does come aptly sweet so that its not overly saccharine from the addition of durian mousse within the curd. Given how the item was served warm and baked, the durian mousse had seemingly turned more custardy; carried a hint of its pungent fragrance with the sweetness sort of melded into the flavours of the egg curd. Whilst some durian purists may find this a little short of satisfying to solve their cravings for the actual fruit, this was actually an interesting item to have that may appeal to some especially when taking into account the innovative concept of infusing durian into egg tart — something that is not particularly intimidating, and in fact, pretty decent being rather “safe” for most.

Whilst MAO King Tavern is somewhat of a tapas bar with a local approach, we felt that we probably would not go for the durian-infused items alongside the tapas offerings out of Slake’s menu — perhaps it was also due to us ordering mostly fried items, but the tapas snacks and durian-infused desserts do feel somewhat overwhelming when had together, considering how they seemingly felt heavy on the palate. That being said, durian lovers would probably love what MAO King Tavern has to offer — a decent variety of durian-based desserts that are seemingly well-executed whilst also offering items to munch on; almost akin to a one-stop shop with a comfortable environment to enjoy even whole durians, which they carry if they are in season. A spot worth checking out especially for Easties who are looking for durian desserts with a hipster approach!

Ambience v cold, but they can’t turn down the aircon cos it’s an open concept kitchen.
Duck pasta normal, I can do better.
Do NOT order the banana Mille Feuille - soggy and normal vanilla ice cream. Not even assembled.
Pork chop is good and not too dry.

As mentioned on FoodKing NOC, I think it’s true that their quality is not consistent and I was unlucky to eat the not yummy bowl🤣.

The noodles were really overcooked and soggy. Nothing stand out at all except for the dumplings...

The Aunty sitting next to me complaining so little curry gravy.

Back again @thebrewingground for their brunch. Probably one of the more inaccessible cafes, cos it’s hard to get in or out without a car.

While Crab & Signature Scrambled Egg on Toast ($24) remains one of the favourites if you prefer something less fishy, grab their Breakfast Burger ($20). Kinda like a big breakfast packed together. Toasted brioche buns sandwiched with pork sausage patty, fluffy scrambled eggs, caramelised onions and cheddar cheese, it comes with a hash brown on the side.

Pink Fish’s Curry Burger has always been one of my favourite and their latest Avocado Burger won my heart as well! Burger comes with classic grilled salmon, but now topped with smooth avocado purée with zesty kick. It’s a really refreshing approach and definitely worth a try! Their cod fish nuggets are must order
