Checking out another newly open cafe @prodigalcafe which is located in the old estates at Macperson. Not exactly the most accessible place but it鈥檚 walking distance from Tai Seng MRT.

Limited mains on the menu including this Grilled Cheese ($10). Buttered thick toast that has oozing cheese and dusted with cheese shavings, it comes with a side of rockets and roasted capsicum giving it a more refreshing crunch. While it鈥檚 a cheesy goodness, the huge portion might be too much to finish on own.

Certainly hard to find a dish involving Japanese Mountain Yam; quite a surprising find at a cafe in a neighbourhood estate. Coming with elements such as Kiwi Berries, Figs, Burnt Cream and Coffee, the dish is incredibly umami without being overwhelming on the tastebuds. For one, the Japanese Mountain Yam carries the texture that is a hybrid of a good, boiled potato and a radish; soft to the bite while crusty on the exterior 鈥 a little smoky from the coffee powder over the top whilst umami from the burnt cream. The Kiwi Berries and Fig provide that hint of sweetness that rounds off the other flavours nicely to help refresh the tastebuds. Honestly, this is a dish that I love; the elements done so beautifully and coming into harmony as an entire dish, though a concept that is pretty hard to explain for how abstract it is. Still, an interesting and delicious, well thought-out dish that provides an interesting perspective of different produce around.

Had grilled cheese sandwich ($10) with flat white. ($5). Was a bit surprised they dont offer any other milk option like skim milk, soy milk etc. Enjoyed the grilled cheese sandwich esp with rockets, but a bit too much for me to finish the whole sandwich. Cozy environment to enjoy during weekends and very friendly staffs!

This was generously piled with hearty pork belly, braised egg for the colour & black fungus for the crunch. We chose to add on their Braised Sides ($2) which includes mushrooms, tau pok, peanuts & salted vegetables.
They鈥檙e currently not serving lava egg (won鈥檛 that be great) as many returning customers are elderlies who prefer this traditional style braised egg, though I sure hope to see that as an option in the future! Also personally wished that the pork belly here could be sweeter & braised for a longer time for a softer bite, but this still makes a pretty decent meal when I鈥檓 around the hood 鈽猴笍

It is situated at the industrial area of Ubi. The roast in my opinion beat most of the famous brand out there.
we ordered half a roast duck n char siew with roast crackling pork for 2 and the duck was huge.

Owner with her Brother were friendly n confident of their roast. They sell some fried vegetables as well which reminds me of KL style roast that compliment well if you are eating alone.

Opens daily mon - sun from 11.00am except for sun closes at 3 pm.

Carpark is ample if you r driving but if u r not take bus 58 from Serangoon central shld bring you right outside industrial park

The ice cream here is good. Had the avocado and pistachio and well the two are very nice! Quaint and unassuming cafe but the ice cream sold here ($7 for 2 scoops) is bursting with flavours! 馃惓 merryan is very happy! #merlion #merryansg #singapore #icecream #cafe #burpple

Congratulations 馃帀 @denzchoe on your little man鈥檚 馃挴 th day celebration.

Korean food can be a tough one for vegetarians, what with the BBQ, bulgogi etc. Thankfully there鈥檚 Boneless Kitchen, a Korean vegetarian restaurant, where you can be assured that everything is meatless (you can never be 100% sure in regular Korean restaurants)!

I ordered the Soondubu Jjigae ($12.90) which contained soft tofu, egg tofu, egg, shiitake mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, kimchi and fishcake. It came out piping hot and was quite spicy, but delicious. Almost thought the fishcake was real fishcake! The dish was accompanied by purple rice and a side of pickled cucumbers.

This is a great place for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians for meatless Korean food that tastes just like the real thing!

After several visits to both outlets (the one at Clementi apparently closed down 馃挃), I finally tried the steamboat here and I regret not doing so earlier!

The stock is robust and rich, the fish was super fresh and generous. There were lots of yam slices and Chinese cabbage too. As with most places, the refill is diluted, but we didn't need much topping up as the first batch was already hard to finish between the three of us (plus mee tai mak and pork ribs 馃槄).

Truffle infused scrambled eggs sandwiched between a toasted buttery croissant and served with side salad, I added on a beef sausage for an extra protein component.
The scrambled eggs were fluffy with a distinct, lingering albeit subtle truffle aroma that was a pleasant sensation to the palate. The toasted butter crossaint had a crisp and flaky golden brown exterior with a lingering butter fragrance in its soft, pillowy interior 馃挅. The beef sausage was long and thick, flavourful and umami-packed that makes a great companion to the truffle scrambled eggs crossaint. A decent and comforting brunch, coupled with a great ambience that I wouldn鈥檛 mind having repeated visits if only prices were less steep馃槍 .
