Got the chance to head down to 300Boru within Geisha Specialty Coffee for lunch today 鈥 serving up really affordable ramen and donburi for less than $10.00, it is needless to say that the space was actually pretty occupied during our visit at lunch hour though there seems to be a fast turnover for every table.

At $9.90, there isn't much to complain here 鈥 there's actually quite a good portion of salmon underneath all that savoury mayo. Overall though it's decent for its price, but if I were to nitpick, it seemingly tasted more of mayo; the slight char from the aburi just don't seem to be strong enough here. Still, the portion seems pretty substantial enough without leaving one in a food coma 鈥 a place that would satisfy the office workers/students in the neighbourhood for how it is of a decent quality at the price point. Looking forward to try their ramen the next time I make a visit; looked so good seeing what others have ordered.

21 Campbell Lane is where 馃嚭馃嚫 meets 馃嚠馃嚦 and that frisson of fusion food done right now lights up the night sky over Singapore鈥檚 Little India.
At last night鈥檚 hosted tasting, Head Chef Andrew Baldus got Rueann and I rolling with Picklebacks - a double trouble of #Amrut single malt whisky chased by a housemade jalape帽o pickle juice ($5). To say we loved it is an understatement.
Then it was on to the delightful American-BBQ-meets-taste-of-India creations that this place specialises in.
Our snacks of crispy Pulled Pork Samosas, chewy Currywurst Sausages, ridiculously tender Butter Chicken Hot Pockets and melt-the-mouth Madras Pork Cheeks (all priced between $7 and $8) captivated from the first chomp. Served piping hot, flavours were unabashedly full-on, which meant they鈥檙e equally enjoyable with or without the accompanying dips. By the way, what also impressed me was how the dips differed for each.
After this came the mains which were just as bold in concept and as successfully executed as the snacks.
Besides the awe-inspiring Briyani Stuffed Suckling Pig and stunningly done Tandoori Chicken (please see my other posts about them), we had Coconut Chutney Ribs (the recipe for the chutney came courtesy of Chef Mano鈥檚 grandmother) and Lamb Chops in Chimi Chutney. They were every bit as good as you can imagine. Even the three sides of vegetables were so delish I鈥檇 have them on their own.
Clearly, having a tandoor oven to play with has proven most inspiring for Chef Andrew. I can鈥檛 wait to see what else he and Chef Mano comes up with when they decide to expand the menu.

Waffle was freshly prepared with good quality gelato. One of my favourite gelato flavours will be pistachio; using premium pistachio nuts giving an intense nutty taste with a smooth finish 馃構.

How did the Tandoor Chicken steal my heart? With a lip-smacking marinade and meat that鈥檚 incredibly moist and tender. Yes, it even passed the 鈥渂reast-test鈥 with flying colours - no dry stringiness whatsoever.
I found the chicken to pair very well with a tall glass of the housemade Nambu Pani, an Indian style of lemonade containing cumin (FREEFLOW: $4++). The non-teetotalers among you who shuddered at that thought will be relieved to know there are many alcoholic options but unfortunately, those aren鈥檛 freeflow 馃槅.
Like the rest of the items on the food menu here at Meatsmith Little India, the Tandoor Chicken is great for sharing - so you鈥檒l have more belly space to try their other tasty American-Indian fusion creations. However if you are after a dish to have yourself, this would be one of the most suitable options on the menu.

A signature at the newly-opened 鈥淢eatsmith Little India鈥 by Head Chef Andrew Baldus, the Stuffed Suckling Pig is a clever take on the traditional Chinese version that鈥檚 been making the rounds for years at restaurants from Hong Kong to Singapore.
Having been deboned and marinated in a special concoction for 48 hours, the skin of the piglet after roasting is suitably crisp while the meat beneath is juicy and very smooth. Instead of the glutinous rice in the Chinese version, Chef Andrew does an aromatic Indian-style Nasi Briyani stuffing. I love that the rice is moist, tasty and has a lot of dried fruit and nuts mixed in. It goes amazingly with the natural sweetness of the pork.

The unassuming side order of potatoes really took me by surprise. Flavours are spot-on and the crisp edges are excellent. The seasoning lends itself to the crispy curry leaves, making the entire dish incredibly addictive to munch with a glass of drink! The mint dip also helps give it a refreshing touch.

This was part of a hosted meal by Meatsmith.

Salmon mentaiko (special request of more cooked hehe) donburi and dry ramen spicy level 1. The salmon rice was a tad too salty with all the mayo (i think i prefer the one at kovan). The ramen on the other wasnt that spicy for level 1. And the onsen egg made a good sauce for the ramen! Service here was friendly, beyond friendly in fact! 馃憤 (it is quite a small space though in case anyone is organising large group outings: biggest table seem to fit at most 6. Total capacity for 15?) We were quite confused by the shpp signage when we reached the place (they seem to specialise selling coffee in the day time too!). #burpple #burpplesg #300boru #burlingtonsquaresg

Waffle with Gelato! Waffle ($7.00) + Classic Gelato ($4.00) / Premium Gelato ($4.50).You must try their In-House Gelato if you are here. Around 10 flavours are available and my fav is Pistachio!

The tender beef slices are coated with a drizzle of sauce, just enough to bring out the flavor of the meat, and the wobbly Ibsen egg on top seals the deal with its runny goodness 馃い this was a hosted tasting, thanks @burpple for the invite! #burpple

$3.90 charcoal waffles with $.50 matcha ice cream! super big scoop of ice cream 馃憛 cheap! considered good for the price 馃槂

affordable jap food! a small cafe that sells coffee and some jap food. not the best but definitely worth the money :-)

From Roast Master, a new Hong Kong Roast specialty stall at Sim Lim Square 鈥 it's hard to miss this given the stall's prominent location beside Taste Good (the famed stall that serves Salted Egg Chicken Rice there). While they do serve the usual Char Siew and Roast Pork there, their specialty is seemingly their Irish Duck; something I am most probably going to try on my next visit here.

Opted for the Roast Meat & Char Siew Noodles 鈥 the noodles were nothing outstanding being too wet and soft; almost akin to being served as though it was starchy Mee Sua. That being said, the meats were enjoyable; the Char Siew is more on the sweeter side 鈥 a little fatty so it somewhat melts in the mouth but the winner was the Roasted Meat. The Roasted Meat was simply savoury; it leans closer to the leaner side but still found it on a good proportion of lean to fatty meat overall 鈥 really enjoyed that crackling skin over the top which was simply enjoyable. A place that I am likely to return to solve my meaty cravings; so gonna get my hands on their Irish Duck the next time!
