Good Friday indulgence of my usual choice of Organic Poached Egg served with Rustic Bread topped with avocado, pomegranate, portobello mushroom and sesame seeds. My safe haven that will never disappoint! 😎

Scroll to the next pix for a better view of the chilli crab that satisfied our bellies while deftly emptying our wallets. Little did we know that that one crab would comprise half our entire bill - the priciest crab I have ever eaten! #sinhoisai

I remember it as better. But this time I dabao and left it for more than an hour, so the gravy dried up and the pork chop was soggy. Pork belly showed hints of excellence though.

Amazing texture on the outside with gula melaka that burst in your mouth at just the right sweetness level! Must try!

Can I announce this cake smell SO GOOD! I want to eat it everyday! It’s not overly sweet. You can eat a few slices and don’t feel jelak! Love it. A little bit pricy though. $16 for this.

PRICE: $3/4/5
We went for two $4 orders

WAITING TIME: 4 mins on a weekday at 3.30pm (cooked by the young lady)

WOK HEI: No

NOTES:
- Cannot ask for no towgay. Gotta pick out the towgay by yourself
- Cockles are tiny and not too raw
- Not too wet not too dry, kinda sweet kinda savoury
- No fish cakes. Just Chinese sausage, cockles and towgay.

Zi Char located in the industrial estate! Luckily, it was a stone thrown away from Tiong Bahru Mrt (5/6 mins walk). Had of the of more “interesting” dish which is this lychee 咕咾肉, it was around $10-12 for the smallest portion. The sweet & sour pork had the right amount of crispness on the outside while not being too tough (like how it is after being left 737729yrs in the caifan counter). Comparing it to usual 咕咾肉, it’s definitely really good, however, the lychee flavour cannot be tasted at all. All you can see is bits of the lychee but that’s about it! #zichar

It has been a long time since I ate my all time favorite French Toast so I came to Flock Cafe for the very first time due to the recommendations in Burpple. Verdict: Price is on the high side, $15 but the pros is that there is no GST nor service charge. Taste: it is reasonably ok. I had tasted better. However, if you want to find a quiet place to have your ‘me time’ on weekday then this is good place to visit as the cafe is tucked at one corner of Kim Pong road of Tiong Bahru. For me, I like the idea that there is a big public carpark behind the cafe, save the hassle of looking for a lot.

Taste has been consistent over the years. It is slightly wet but gravy is thick and flavourful. Sotong is fresh but freshness of prawns vary from time to time. The chili is the best hokkein mee chili and goes so well with it.

Its hard to find good risotto in Singapore but the beef risotto ($28) hit the mark! The dish flavorful and rich, and the beef's texture moderated the mushier risotto creating a entertaining dish to the last bite.

Not too much of a fan of the limited lunch 1-for-1 menu which does not showcase many of their better dishes though.
