Ordered their pizzas too but didn’t manage to get a shot before we gobbled the food down! Chicken carbonara didn’t go wrong but might be gelat if it’s just for 1. I liked the BBQ chicken pizza while my friends enjoyed the four cheese tomatoes thin crust they are super generous with the cheese the pull was amazing!!. Really like it that yellow cab’s pizzas are generally thin crusts (even the regular doughs!) but other than that, didn’t find their pizzas exceptionally outstanding!

There are 6 hidden toppokki amongst the pieces of chicken, which were cooked a little under al dente. It is not to everyone's tastes but I liked the crisp outer layer and chewy inner layer of the toppokki. It can be a bit too tiring to eat more than 1 or 2, though, so I've never tried ordering the toppokki as a main. Anyway, the fried chicken pieces were very thoroughly fried, maintaining the crispy skin even after being drenched in a sweet-spicy sauce that tastes JUST a bit like sweet-and-sour pork sauce....

It is a really high price tag for a small portion of a dish that comprises relatively cheap ingredients, but somehow it is so tasty that I ordered it both times I patronised the restaurant. The stew is very thick, and some may find it too concentrated with the gochujang/gochugaru paste but I like it.

Perfect mix of salty veges, bulggogi beef and tightly-wrapped rice!

(+$1.50 for rice)
The soup broth was sooo earthy and tasted extremely nutritious, like a magic cordial of sorts. The chicken was also tear-apart tender, including the breast meat which usually tends to be tough and bland in soups. However, the chicken doesn't come stuffed with glutinous rice as other Korean restaurants do it -- this is more of a straight-up, no-frills samyetang. But it is super tasty.

I've tried this once before so I am glad to say that the stir-fried hot plate pork is not only delicious, but CONSISTENTLY delicious 😋 can be a bit too spicy for some, though.

was quite excited to visit alter ego but unfortunately was also quite disappointed :-( they had a really limited menu on the day we visited, mainly comprising poke bowls and pasta, not sure why this was the case.

anyways got the wasabi yuzu dragon, but sadly neither the wasabi nor the yuzu taste was prominent. seemed like a generic creamy sauce. ingredients were of decent quality, though wish there were more poke. at $17++, this is rather steep. ambience of the place was quite nice though.

$17++ | 4/10

$9.80 for a stack of 2 soufflé pancakes that are light, fluffy and jiggly but it was eggy. The strong eggy after taste was my takeaway from eating the pancakes which was disappointing. I’ve had the ones at Grams Café and I would have that over this any time even though it’s a little pricier there.

Actually, there is a way to make pizza even more sinful, like in the case of 𝙋𝙞𝙯𝙯𝙖 𝙁𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨 (~$14). The cheese clumped too quickly and they honestly COULD be more generous with the pepperoni, but this was as pizza-flavoured as they could make it 🍕🍟

𝙊𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙋𝙤𝙠𝙚 𝘽𝙤𝙬𝙡 (~$17) left me with mixed feelings. The addition of candied cashews was genius — sweet and salty against the creamy guacamole and cold sashimi, but the salmon wasn’t the freshest to be frank. Not sure if this poke bowl justified the price tag 🤔

If you thought your studying content is dry, the 𝘽𝙚𝙚𝙛 𝙎𝙝𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙗𝙨 𝙎𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙬𝙞𝙘𝙝 (~$16) is drier. I have no idea how a sandwich can be dry even with melted cheese, but you’d be surprised.

Dong Ding Oolong Fresh Milk Tea (冻顶鲜奶茶) ($4.70)

I felt that it was quite plain dong ding oolong tea due to no sugar level and not much fresh milk aftertaste. I found its similar taste to pokka oolong tea for dong ding oolong. I like the standard for brewing tea by using teapresso machine and the queue for Chicha San Chen at Marina Square was quite not much as 313 Somerset. I realised that the crowds are coming from there and Marina Square was quiet and not much people walking around at there.
