Ever since I’d been converted to an acai addict, I’ve found myself going back for a bowl once every week. It’s just so good in taste and it makes me feel better especially with the amount of fruits and health benefits that I’m gaining. 😅

Haakon’s Cacao Bliss Bowl was pretty alright - it got a little strange texturally when I was close to finishing it due to the chia seeds (correct me if I misidentified). I have nothing against them, I just feel that the combination of cocoa and chia seeds didn’t really gel well for me.

Still, you can bet I downed this whole thing unabashedly, especially since I had it on one of those Friday night-ins! 🤣

When dim sum cravings hit, round up the fam for a feast at this Hong Kong restaurant housed in KINEX. Go for the bang for buck Dum Sum in the Cage ($28.80) – a dim sum platter including classic dishes like Steamed Shrimp and Pork Dumpling with Fish Roe and Steamed Prawn Dumpling. On mains, hit up the plump and bouncy Fresh Shrimp Wanton Noodles ($9.80) and the aromatic Fried Rice with Diced Scallop, Conpoy and Egg White ($18).

Ordered burpple meat dish 1 for 1 and quality and quantity was very small
Asked 3 times for our orders to come before it came really slow service
Only 4 prawns for$14 really expensive and not worth it
Everyone around us was eating buffet and seemed much more worth
Best thing we ate was the fried rice really tasty
Maybe would come back for the rice not the hotpot

Value for money for the price we paid! The food met our expectations!

PRICE:
$4.50/5.50 - Our $5.50 portions include 5 boiled wantons
$6.30 Prawn handroll
$1.50 Drinks

WAITING TIME: About 5 minutes on an off-peak timing on a weekday at 6pm

OUR COMPARISON TO THE OTHER ENG'S:
- Noodles is more starchy
- Less oily noodles 👍
- Soup is more flavourful 👍
- Chilli is not as hot
...can't decide on our favourite. Need another round of taste test.

REMARKS:
- The alternate Mondays business operation is tricky! We went on a Monday but it was closed, so we had to eat at the other Eng's opposite, before coming back here again on another day
- Air-conditioned, unlike its opposite rival
- More spacious than its opposite rival
- Free flow fried pork lard, like its opposite rival
- More options for drinks and sides
- Ngor hiang is nice! And that sweet sauce!

All of us ordered the Penang char kway teow ($6+) with drinks ($3.50+). Special order of no beansprouts was being entertained :) this char kway teow was the dry version kind! (I think I prefer the wetter kind!) The shop owner told us they were gona move out of the tanjong katong road outlet by end June, so head there soon! 1 for 1 with burpple beyond!

PRICE: $4.50/5.50
$5.50 portion includes 5 boiled wantons

WAITING TIME: About 5 minutes on an off-peak timing on a weekday

REMARKS:
- Love the noodles texture as usual.
- Chilli sauce doesn't seem to be as spicy as it used to be. Had to spam a lot more to taste like how I liked it.
- Free flow fried pork lard, yayyy
- Soup is quite bland, hardly drank

NOTE TO SELF:
Do not order the barley again. Tasted so bad.

The beef short ribs are nice but serving is small. I was taken aback when waitress tried to serve me a plate of stale beef short ribs (the beef had turned brown) when I used the 1 for 1 deal on the beef. She did replace it after I rejected it. And the liver that we ordered is not fresh as well. Colour looks off. Taste wrong too. Shelf life of liver is very short btw 1-2days. Don't like the fact this shop continue to serve food that is way past its shelf life.
The 1 for 1 deal vouchers can only be used on limited dishes and the shop only allowed us to use 2 vouchers for 4 pax (2A & 2C). vouchers are not applicable on platters and buffet which makes the use of vouchers totally not worth it. The above photo showed everything ( + a can of green tea & a pot of chrysanthemum tea) we had ordered and the total bill is $104. Soup base costs $18. Regretted visiting and will not visit again.
There are better hot pot restaurants that costs lesser.

my next option was Madeleine original portugese egg tarts at tanjong katong road! Besides the original version, they have the fragrant pandan ones too! A box of 3 and a mini box of 6 cost $11! But with burpplebeyond, we got x2 the amount at the same price! 😃 Use my code: SPOO360 for burpplebeyond 1 for 1 20% discount! #burpple #burpplebeyond #onemancoffee #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #foodtrails #sgfoodies #sgeats #madeleineoriginalportugueseeggtart

$16 plus Truffles Pate of $6, cheesy and tasty! Love the ambience as well. Halal so a lot of the drinks are non alcoholic so I tried peach Mojito, quite cool. And mushroom soup, slightly salty but tasty, need to tune down the salt! :) would come back again.

The starkly green pandan jelly was too much to be completely natural but I did toast hints of pandan in them. That aside everything else in the bowl made this a good rendition- tribute to the chendol we are familiar with as Singaporeans; unadulterated ingredient include red beans, Gula Melaka sauce and coconut milk.
