lovely fudgy brownie with lemon cheesecake ice cream and waffles with a single scoop of kaya toast ice cream chose the wrong flavours to pair but each item was yummy individually. except the waffle which didn’t have much taste

Yes - squares! These handmade carrot cake are diced into nice little cubes, mixed with egg and preserved radish, then fried to a crisp! They’re then split into large squares (instead of individual cubes) for that substantial mouth-bite! Is it worth the 20-mins wait? Yes it does! For one, the eggy fragrance was strong - love how the owner is generous with the use of egg and preserved radish!

I prefer black to white king as the addition of fried garlic paste to the original Tonkotsu broth elevates the flavor of the bowl of ramen. As usual, the meat was very tender and flavorful! Both bowls of ramen were topped with bonito flakes and a huge amount of cabbages.

I personally don’t fancy the idea of cabbages with ramen though. Hence, I prefer their tonkotsu black ramen to black king! I’d recommend you getting their normal tonkotsu ramen series as they are somehow more flavorful too and while you’re there, don’t forget to get some xiao long bao from @youpengxlb !

Pretty good satay! Meat was tender and well marinated, had a nice smoky char too. I don’t really eat satay so I’m not in the best position to comment but the long queue for this on a sat early evening should be a testament to how delicious it is. Peanut sauce has a tiny spice kick, good for people like me who can’t rly take spicy food. I thought the sauce was ok only tho, I ate the ketupat with sauce but the satay on its own :p

On rainy days like these, having warm 𝘽π™ͺπ™©π™©π™šπ™§ 𝙉𝙖𝙖𝙣 to soak up that deliciously savoury Yogurt πŸ₯› and Tomato-based πŸ… 𝘽π™ͺπ™©π™©π™šπ™§ π˜Ύπ™π™žπ™˜π™ π™šπ™£ sauce is one of those guilty pleasures of mine that make me incredibly happy.

Delightfully flavourful and elevated with strong spices, Indian food is one of my weak spots, and I'm not just talking about the quintessential π™π™€π™©π™ž 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙖 or π™π™€π™©π™ž π˜Ύπ™–π™£π™–π™ž (depending on which side of the Causeway you're on. πŸ˜†) πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

Finally got to try this! Noodles were QQ and the minced meat was flavourful too. Enjoyed my meal (:

Chicken was tender, rice was well cook! Love the chili too!! Definitely will come back again!!

One of my sec sch favourites! The fish is quite succulent, with no fishy smells! Also, they give tang o veg, which I enjoy. The soup is pretty flavourful - my dad and I drank it allll up. I have to give a shoutout for the rice - it’s of a decent quality, and it is separated / not clumpy so it’s great for drenching in fish soup :)

Matcha Bo Bo Cup Cake (September ηŽ–ζœˆ) ($5.90) I didn't expected that it's full of whipping cream plus didn't enjoy their matcha cream (taste so weird). I really like their boba pearls but it's quite sticky for me. It's a bit disappointed for me and ppl pls don't order this dessert even though it can be takeaway easily.

Revisited Obba Jjajang after two to three years. Am on my hunt to try more Korean Chinese food. So if you got any favourites, let me know!

Obba Jjajang is probably one of the better places to get your jjajangmyeon at an affordable price point.

Jjajangmyeon is essentially noodles with thin slices of pork belly, onions and chunjang - a thick, gooey sweet bean sauce. Enjoyed every bit of it from the sweet, savoury sauce to the generous bits of diced pork in every bite.

Stir the noodles quickly before it gets all clumpy. The portions are big. You may want to share this with a friend. I was too hungry to take a photo of how it looks after we stirred the noodles.

JJAMPONG - a Korean seafood soup with chilli powder.

Obba Jjajang is probably one of the better places to get your jjampong and jjajangmyeon at an affordable price point.

Can you believe it that this is my second jjampong in my entire lifetime? So what you can expect is a HUGE BOWL of noodles is an abundance of prawns, mussels, clams and squid. For greens you get some pak choy, chives and onions.

The mildly spicy seafood soup was delicious and rich in seafood flavour. A comforting treat for the soul.
