@dsocialoutcast has come a long way since their first outlet in a small coffee shop in Tampines, riding through the tough times that Covid threw at us, and emerging even stronger with a bigger shop and crew at the very hip @thebedokmarketplace. โค๏ธ

I love how they listen to their customer's feedback and constantly innovate and improve on their menu, and I'm soooo happy to say that I absolutely love their fries now! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐ŸŸ And... Can I just say how delicious that generously thick chunk of ๐™Ž๐™ข๐™ค๐™ ๐™š๐™™ ๐™๐™š๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฎ๐™–๐™ ๐™ž ๐™๐™ฃ๐™–๐™œ๐™ž is, with its perfectly crispy and lightly charred exterior paired with super fluffy and flakey flesh within. Oh goshhh I'm drooling just reminiscing about every delicious bite! ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคคโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

My only gripe is that there is too much Alfafa coming in between me and my Unagi and Brioche Buns (LOL), but I generally don't like the raw taste of Alfafa, so I'll prolly opt to exclude that in my next order. ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿƒ

Finally got to try this place! Reservations is highly recommended! I booked early dec but was only able to get a slot on new yearโ€™s day.

Unfortunately for me, going on new yearโ€™s day also meant that Japan is on holiday and there was no fresh shipment of fish arriving. Most fishes were out including the uni. I was looking forward to the variety.

They replaced it with more of the other fish and I requested for more of swordfish sashimi.

Overall thick slices and value for money. They are also very generous with their sashimi slices. I would say it is very value for money at 20+$. Depending on the occasion, for a normal sashimi craving where you value quantity this would be perfect.

Right after our dinner at the Bedok Market place, we popped by this ice cream cafe to end off our day with some sweetness๐ŸฆIt was a pretty small place but they do have gOod ice cream. My favourite would be the pictured ๐‡๐š๐ณ๐ž๐ฅ๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ ๐œ๐จ๐จ๐ค๐ข๐ž ๐๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ’.๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) as the flavours just come together so nicely ๐Ÿฅบ I also liked the ๐๐ซ๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐ฎ๐ฆ ๐ฉ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐œ๐ก๐ข๐จ (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ“) as it wasnโ€™t too sweet and had a real nutty taste to it. Definitely coming back, especially with the burpple 1-1 ๐Ÿค˜

Top quality Italian food for very affordable prices ๐Ÿ˜ Seriously, this stall at this hipster hawker center sells restaurant quality food but at half the price?? Pictured here is the ๐•๐จ๐๐ค๐š ๐œ๐ซ๐š๐› ๐ฆ๐ž๐š๐ญ ๐ฉ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ๐š (~๐’๐†๐ƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ) with real and generous pieces of crab meat. The vodka didnโ€™t come out that strong but Iโ€™m personally fine with that. Pasta was al dente (yay!) and overall just super worth the price. Canโ€™t wait to try everything on the menu ๐Ÿคค

$14. Gotta say this wasnโ€™t v cheap for a hawker centre but enjoyed the beef slices (enough to cover the amount of rice!) and the onsen egg.

The waffles are so huge!! LOVED IT! Speculous taste like a typical lotus biscuit, I like it a lot! Black sesame is great too, just prefer it if the flavour is a little stronger! Total I spent with burrple beyond is $9.20!

Iโ€™ll never say no to chocolate tart. The dark chocolate ganache was strong on the chocolate taste. But the vanilla tart shell could be crispier.

Thank you @theforagecafe for having us!

Good old traditional baked cheesecake thatโ€™s infused with honey and osmanthus flower. And damn itโ€™s been awhile since I had a cheesecake with a digestive biscuit base. The cream cheese was rich and creamy that doesnโ€™t feel too cloying. And you canโ€™t fail to notice the fresh, floral taste of the osmanthus. And I love baked cheesecakes for its sweet, crumbly digestive biscuit base.

Forage Signature ($9.10 - Left). I can see why itโ€™s their signature. Extremely refreshing and a wonderful palette cleanser. Itโ€™s a more refined and healthier version of bubble tea without all the added sugar since honey is used to sweeten the tea. Iced citrus jasmine tea with special multi-floral honey. Itโ€™s then served with two toppings - yuzu blossom jelly and passionfruit burst pearls.

Wild Milkyway ($9.10 - Right). The cafeโ€™s take on milk tea. Da Hong Pao (ๅคง็บข่ข) oolong milk tea and wild honey grass jelly. It was a tad milky and masked the earthy notes of the tea. The honey grass jelly is a good addition for the humid weather.

Went down to @theforagecafe in the FAR EAST not too long ago to try some of their honey-themed creations including their signature honey buttermilk waffles, honey-based drinks and honey-infused desserts.

Owned by the same people behind @13honey, every item served has some element of honey in it.

Chilli Cheese Chicken Waffle Sandwich ($17). Breaded fried chicken cutlet, baby spinach and topped with a mild chilli cheese sauce. Donโ€™t forget to drizzle it with some honey for a sweet touch.

The great thing about the chicken cutlet is that it isnโ€™t too oily. The chicken thigh was fairly juicy but I thought it could do with a little more crisp. But I wished the cutlet serving was larger to fit the entire waffle. When you finished the cutlet, itโ€™s as good as eating waffles with honey. More cheese sauce would be great too.

I love the honey on its own as it adds that natural sweetness to the savoury waffles.

Jalapenฬƒo Beef Ragu Waffle Sandwich ($20.20). One of the bestsellers and I just love how well this hearty combination works. Served with crispy bacon, wholesome jalapenฬƒo beef ragu, mozzarella cheese, sunny side up and some nachos to go along with.

The waffle size was perfect for this dish considering the medley of ingredients. Itโ€™s amazing how it retains its crisp on the exterior while the batter itself is so fluffy. The meaty beef ragu was flavourful and I loved that slice of crispy streaky bacon cause who doesnโ€™t love bacon?
