Not spicy at all. The sauce lacks in taste and tasted bland. Fish tail was huge in size but not fresh enough.

My fav dish of the night. First bite and you taste the braised pulled duck on top and at the bottom is truffle mash. Such heavenly combo. Good twist to the traditional kueh pie tee. Po does its appetisers so well. Highly recommend here for mod sin experience

Pricey but well worth every penny. Juicy and tender, charcoal-grilled till perfection. Peanut dip was on point.

The Les Amis owned restaurant located just opposite great world city has recently opened its doors for us to get a taste of Japan without having to leave the comfort of Singapore. The restaurant serves up authentic Japanese food in an intimate dining setting. This Beef Sando I had, had a melt in my mouth beef steak on the inside and is held together with a crispy brown sandwich. Coupled with pommery mustard and tonkatsu sauce for an extra kick of tanginess.⠀

The menu comprises of east-meets-west flavours and textures, to cater to the varied palates of meat eaters and wellness junkies alike. If you are like a rabbit, you can go for some healthier options like their Avocado Toast with Egg or The Botanist Salad which you can also opt to add on meats. The Uni Truffle Capellini is something you might enjoy but the value leaves a bit to be questioned because the uni was quite scarce that day. The mapo tofu is good because it has a vegan option, made with plant-based “meat” by Impossible Foods, however the taste can be a little more stronger.

Personally I thought that the food at Botany is decent but lacking its character, and feels like it needs a bit more time to fine tune to be in full bloom.

Had flat white which is smooth and nice coffee taste

Oyster Paitan Ramen ($15.90++) || @KonjikiHototogisu
.
Finally tried this Michelin-rated ramen 🍜 which was recently awarded the 2019 Tokyo Michelin Star and listed on Tokyo Michelin Bib Gourmand 2015-2018.
.
The restaurant, famous for its clam-based ramen, exclusively offers oyster-based ones at its @GreatWorldCitySG outlet. I heard that the oyster consomme is prepared through hours of slow cooking!
.
I had the Oyster Paitan Ramen and really liked the flavourful creamy broth. The first mouthful reminded me of creamy pasta - really rich, unlike traditional ramen which usually served in clear broth.
.
Nonetheless, as the oyster paste (the blob that you see on the left side of the bowl) was a little too strong, I didn't quite mix everything in eventually. So I was really thankful for the lemon which added a good citrusy contrast.
.
PS: I topped up S$2++ for the onsen egg. A ramen would just be incomplete without the beautiful half-boiled egg, don't you agree? 🙋‍♀️

If you don’t expect much, it’s edible, but you should really only come here to admire the nice setting. Their Rigatoni Amatriciana ($24) with guanciale and pecorino lacked any distinct flavours, and the bland calamari and cauliflower fritti ($17) didn’t make sense to me—why bother frying it crispy if you’re going to serve it sitting in a pool of aioli to get soggy? @publico_sg

Went on: 5th Apr 2019, 7.30pm
Price per pax: $82, via chope 1-1 voucher. Would have used burpple voucher should I know I won't be going back after going through this...

So this place has raving reviews on tripadvisor and partner wants to go. It's a Friday nightand I thought its the beginning of a great weekend but all comes to an end when we were told after seated that fresh oyster isn't available! So different to the unlimited free servings of freshly shucked oysters mentioned online!

To the next course then, I'm here for seafood anyway. Head to it and only found mussels, clams and cooked yabbies(miniature lobsters family usually farmed in Australia) served cold. Taste normal, nothing much to shout about. Onwards to cook seafood and we only have cereal crabs, not much pieces with meat left. It took almost an hour for them to dish out 2 cereal crabs and its gone within seconds.. I could barely reach for it and its gone to other foodie..

Sashimi slice to order but presentation were....ate penang laksa to keep me full and fuming towards the end.

Only redemption, the picture of prawns in herbal soup still provides a nice sweet texture. But hey, they show prawns swimming in tank but they scoop the prawns from a bed of ice tray hiding behind the tank which I saw by accident/chance?

The servers are always there so readily to collect utensils. But the food are a dismay. At $82/pax with what I experience, I'd probably never recommend to anyone

Super affordable sushi lunch sets from $80++ (7pc) at a proper sushiya, where each piece is served individually. It is well worth adding the special sushi bowl for additional $40++ due to the generous serving of fresh creamy uni, ikura, negitoro and shiro ebi (seasonal). If you do not top up you still get an ikura bowl as part of the set.
.
Ulala sushi course Apr 2019 : 1) Sea bream 2) flounder 3) akami zuke (seasoned tuna) 4) saba (mackeral) 5) scallop 6) kagoshima kuruma ebi (Japanese tiger shrimp) 7) otoro (tuna belly). Comes with appetiser (bonito), ikura rice bowl, Miso soup and dessert (warabi mochi).
.
All Japanese chefs here unlike my previous sushiya of choice, mitsuya, where it is luck of draw and you may get local chef with the totally inept knife skills.

Came for brunch and really enjoyed the vibes of this place! At the Robertson Quay, and there was quite a crowd during the weekend, but we managed to get a table quite quickly. I had the eggs benedict -brooklyn style with stew beef which was delicious! ($20) and my hb had the Brekkie of Champions($25) The portions were pretty decent especially when we used entertainer which had 1 for 1!

A French twist on the traditional orh nee (Teochew yam paste)
.
Gingko nuts and candied pumpkin are used to make the yam custard. It is then topped with caramelized sugar crust and served with a scoop of coconut ice-cream
.
This yam custard stays faithful to the traditional orh nee; it is smooth and creamy
.
The caramelized sugar crust had a nice crunch and a right amount of sweetness. And the coconut ice-cream gave a light refreshing taste to the overall creaminess of the yam custard
