Had the ice cream waffles with double scoop (speculoos and salted caramel) for $12.50. The ice cream flavours were both light and paired well with the waffle. The waffle was crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside - the mark of a well-made waffle!

Beautiful ambience inside the cafe too! Definitely a must visit for a day out with friends ☺️

Back to @enjoyeatinghouse with my entire office haha!🤤😂 pardon the bad photo proportions, got to snap quick as colleagues are hungry!🙈! Heartwarming to know that James still remembers me from the tasting, thanks for reintroducing your place to us✨☺️ I’m so glad the standard is still as good as the tasting❤️ in fact the mantou got better? It has a tofu-like crust that is especially unique! Tried a few other dishes this time: SHOUT-OUT to the seafood hor fun! They actually fried the hor fun individually? How? Or did I got it wrong? But Anws its different from the usual hor fun outside and really good~ crispy like noodle chips soaked in the savoury hor fun gravy👌✨ grateful to James for being very understanding and accommodating to our @burpple beyond 1 for 1 requests🙈🙊✨☺️ will definitely patronise again soon! 🌸👍

Spot the long queue on Level 2 of Berseh Food Centre to find Mei Xiang. Here, there's only Mixed Sliced Fish Soup ($6 for Small, $8 for Big) — no other choices. You'll get sliced fish, slightly salty fried fish chunks (beware of bones), a robust soup loaded with cabbage, a zesty chili that is totally addictive ($0.30 for extra) and a bowl of white rice. Pro-tip: if you want to dabao, please bring your own container!

Had the dry wantons, and they tasted more like har gao. Really smooth and melts in the mouth. A plate of dry wantons costed $8.

Ordered the following: $11.88 for Baileys cold brew. $9.30 for Bao zi. $8.80 for Paddlepop cheesecake. $15.40 for pandan pancakes... the prices here are a bit steep. But i guess you are paying for the artwork of the old school desserts as well. The old school desserts are pretty unique and delicious. The pandan pancakes are fluffy but it is not what i would order again. My favourite item is the Baileys cold brew.

Bf and me had the classic pork beehoon, crab omelette and this new item black pepper beef with foie gra. Dessert was Orh Ni and Chendol Panna Cotta. This place was recommended by a friend and it really didn’t disappoint. Everything is super good and recommend to share (so that can eat more)! I also had a jug of G&T (Gordon Gin) at $15 only. Damn worth it.

Tiramisu was pretty good but nothing too mindblowing, pretty well-balanced flavours. A very cozy place (with cute cartoon characters as decoration!!) to chill out with your loved ones.

Fried Oyster 蠓前 (S$5)
Default version is spicy.
Served with a tangy dip.
If you don’t want spicy, please remind the aunty.
I’m surprised that I finished the whole plate myself easily.

- I ordered 2 sets of nasi lemak, one is 5.5 SDG and the other one is 4.7 SDG and one lemon juice with the price of 1.2 SDG. And how do I feel after leaving the restaurant?—>fulfilled
Long story short, I was starving and having a crave for Nasi Lemak. The 1st time I tried Nasi Lemak was in Malaysia in 2014 and to tell the truth I didn’t like the dish very much. The 2nd time was at Universial Studio in Singapore in 2019 and I loved it. May be because when I was in grade 11, I hadnt been abroad much and I was kinda struggling to digest the food. But we are talking about 21 years old me who adore the dish so much. The 3rd time (today on Sep 15, 2019) is at this place. It was a simple dish got done right with all the flavor comes to life (no exaggeration people). The chicken was fried beautifully keeping all the moist inside and it is crispy on the outside. And I think I really need to steal the coating powder recipe because that piece of chicken was so delightful to bite. Another star of the dish was the rice cooked with coconut, the smell of coconut fat just spices up everything else and melts in my mouth. Speaking of the fried fish with crunchy peanuts, god heaven, I love how joyful it is when you hear yourself chewing the thing. With a touch of some slices of cucumber, they bring out all the freshness like we’ve been hiking under the scorching sun and stop for a sip of water, like, how refreshing is it, right? Another ingredient that helps neutralize the dish is the basted egg, soft, creamy and rich. One more thing we can’t overlook is the sauce called “sambal”, truly is the cherry on the cake. Overall, this is a good start for me in Singapore and you should check this place out if you are happened to be nearby.

The taste was very unique and different than the usual taste I have in other places. It really taste like it was prepared with petai but was told that actually not, just some type of beans. But it was definitely a interesting taste. $9.80++

With limited servings daily, get the chance if they still available for you. A smooth, white, collagen-rich fish soup that archived though their hours of preparing with no milk added.

The fish slices was soft and delicious, soup base was much a sweeter side which you will want to get more slips of it. Enough portion for 2 people. $11.80++
