Charred House-Poached Octopus

3 munchies: Served on a bed of well-cooked squid ink risotto, the tender, house-poached octopus was charred till it had a slight caramelisation on the outside. While the salted egg yolk sauce was rich and had some of the grainy textures, I wasn't so sure how it complemented the briny flavours of the risotto, though.

TWO THINGS TO SHARE:
โ€ข
1) I'm a @burpple Tastemaker!!

Thanks for the love and support everyone!

2) And even better news especially if you ever make the trip to Morsels, because their Ume Sake braised Beef Angus Short Rib ($38 for 140g) is the very thing sweet dreams are made off.
โ€ข
Lovingly braised till fall-apart tender, the short rib is intense and a beautiful flavor due to a combiniation of the intensity of the beef and the acidity from the ume sake. Paired with the sweet and creamy Okinawan sweet potato, oh mama, it's definitely a home run for me.
โ€ข
While portions are slightly on the small side. This is one example of how quality trumps quantity.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

Roti Jala ($7.50+)

First time trying this roti and I love it! Great texture, it has a bit of stretch to it. Can't quite describe the taste but I do like it. Anyway, the taste would be dominated by the accompanying three gravies: "mutton" curry, "chicken" curry, and dhal. Needless to say, the meat in a vegetarian resto is mock. Could've fooled me though!! Didn't miss meat at all tonight as their substitutes are really convincing.

Late Night Dim Sum Galore!

Stomach growling in the middle of the night and craving for dim sum? On nights like these, Swee Choon is always my go-to supper place. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Subjecting to individual's preferences, I enjoyed the strong Chinese wine aroma and taste of the Drunken Chicken in Shaoxing Wine. If you are lucky like me, you might find the chicken jello sandwiched between the skin and the tender chicken meat. Shiok ah! ๐Ÿ˜—

Beancurd skin + crabstick + egg? They are food that I love eating but having them together as a steamed dim sum dish was my first time. The taste was expectedly and predictably nice. ๐Ÿ˜„

There might be some hits and misses but Swee Choon guarantees to be one of the supper places with wallet-friendly and quality dim sum. #BurppleSGLateNight

Pork And Fish Porridge ($4)

This is really value for money porridge. Huge servings. Cheap. Love how thick the porridge texture is. Go for the pork and fish if you like variety. Finish it off with a order of Victor famous fried chicken. (8/10)

For Celebrations over Refined Zi Char Dishes

Located across Rochor Beancurd in Selegie, this hidden zi char gem may be slightly pricier than others, but well worth it for a birthday celebration with a small group of friends. Make reservations in advance should you want to sit indoors, otherwise be prepared to sit alfresco. Meat lovers will love the fall-off-the-bone tender Drunken XL Spare Ribs ($23 for five) that comes in a variety of sauces like the finger-licking good Butter Champagne flavour. We like how the restaurant provides disposable gloves to make the process of eating the ribs easy and fuss-free! Then, tuck into the Wok-Fried XL Crabs ($70 per kg) and opt for the Indo Curry sauce. Burpple Tastemaker Geraldine Tay notes that unlike other curries where the consistency may be slightly thicker, the curry's consistency at Big Lazy Chop is thinner and more soup-like โ€” great for slurping it up without feeling jelat!
Avg Price: $30 per person

Is it high tea time already ?

The coffee lacked the flavor I miss of dockyard home made ones. Haha had to text him about it but I already finished half the coffee. Guess will come back for a re-visit when I have the time again

Absolutely enjoyed this Upside Down Goreng Pisang cake with coconut ice cream at the end of our meal here.

Warm, soft and packed with flavours of banana without being overly sweet or oily. Kind of reminded us of the traditional fried banana ball, or more affectionally known as "bomb". A successful rendition of our local snack brought to a new level, although we wouldn't say the same for some of their savoury dishes that we'd tried, such as the creamy BKT and Ayam Buah Keluak. Perhaps it was a matter of picking the right dishes here to avoid disappointment.

Mee Siam

Crayfish Fried Hokkien Mee

Very pricey local fare improvisation. This bowl was too huge for my consumption so it's best to be shared by 2. I'll be back to try it's coffee and cakes.
