Homemade Veneto Style Pasta tossed with Braised Duck Ragout and Mushrooms. The dish may not look fancy but it was so fragrant and comforting! The duck ragout was fresh and flavourful, and the bigoli pasta was so chewy and delicious! Rare to find this pasta in Singapore and it was so well done. Give it a try when you’re there!

This was this week’s special - the veal was so tender and smooth, not much seasoning done also since its freshness did all the work. The risotto was lightly buttery, goes well with the fragrant veal. A little costly but worth every penny!

Pan-fried Shrimps wrapped with Pancetta (something like bacon) served with sautéed Spinach. Looks like a simple dish but was so tasty and well done. The freshness of the prawn did most of the work - sweet and complemented the slight saltiness of the pancetta. The spinach was nicely sautéed and went you eat all 3 ingredients together- heavenly!

These were relatively pricier. The teba (mid joint wing, $3.50++) was nicely charred and flavoured with salt, but the meat itself was quite fatty and less tasty. The buta bara (boneless pork belly with onion, $2.90++) fared much better! The tender pork was bursting with flavour, and well complemented by the sweet onions.

Snagged a burpple beyond deal at a new yakitori place! The restaurant filled up quickly at lunch time. Although the app states that alacarte specials can be redeemed for all items, do note that it is only applicable for bara chirashi ($13.90++) & chirashi ($25++) dons. The portion looks small, but it was surprisingly filling and very tasty! There was a good variety of fish and all were fresh. Very good value for money!

Easily one of the best, if not the best Korean Seafood Pancake I have ever eaten. Finished with a light crisp, it has a layer of fluffy egg on top of the starchy one that holds all the pieces of fresh tasting prawns, squid and juicy chives.
The accompanying dip, complete with sweetish pickled onions, is the perfect condiment for the superbly executed pancake.
I can’t wait to return for another meal at this little Korean eatery.

I ordered a Portobello Sandwich & enjoyed it, which took me by surprise. The mushrooms were generous & juicy, with the cheese melted & still slightly oozy, being served hot. The lettuce & tomatoes inside were fresh & the bread was soft & really filled me up.

All sandwiches come with a side of chips, which were nice & crispy but a little salty. If these are regular store-bought chips from a bag, I doubt anything can be done about it, though. There is the option to change the chips to a salad, but that unfortunately costs additional.

I would order this again if I could get this at the 50% off that I had by booking with Eatigo.

Koda's Cafe's last day of operations at The Hillford is tomorrow, 15th Aug 2019. No regrets ordering my Portobello Sandwich as it was tasty. Would return here again if I could book with the same Eatigo discount.

I was going to say that this is, after all, at a convenient location for me (albeit many will beg to differ). But that might not be relevant to me anymore after they move.

Ordering a sandwich isn't something that I'd usually do, but nothing else on the menu really appealed to me. It might be just me... I usually like Burgers, but I wasn't feel any of them that day.

They have brunch items on the menu like Big Breakfast & French Toast, as well as Shepherd's Pies, too. Overall, I find the menu here on the pricey side, so I was glad to have the 50% #eatigosg discount.

All the best, Koda's Cafe, in your new adventures very soon!

Tried this place due to the good reviews from famous food critics online, but was sorely disappointed. I tried the beef boat noodles ($6+) - the rice noodles were firm and well cooked but overwhelmed by the salty broth. The portion was measly for the amount paid - there were only a few spoons of noodles and some thin slices of meet. Another tried the Thai basil rice ($6+) but found the flavour lacking. We also shared the mango sticky rice ($6+). The mango itself was great but it came with flavoured pandan rice that all of us didn’t like. A really unsatisfying experience overall.

What bout going local with pre(tea) good ice cream waffles from @uddersicecream? This one features their Triple Tea Sundae which comes with 3 scoops of ice cream - Kyoto Matcha, Earl Grey and Thai Iced Tea. Topped with coconut, almond granolas and caramel sauce, and dusted with matcha powder for the finishing touches, it is a great indulgence, and REALLY REALLY SHIOK💯👍🏼 personally I liked the earl grey ice cream especially coz the taste of the tea really really stood out, the Kyoto matcha was rather strong tasting too. However the taste of the tea in Thai iced tea was not as obvious compared to the other 2. Had to wait a while for them to prepare the waffle but it was worth the wait as the waffle was warm and crisp. It is the perfect remedy for the hot and sunny afternoons that we are currently experiencing!

One of those stalls that give a decent amount of fish. Love the light clear soup and fresh slices of fish. Although the soup may not be as good as the one at ABC brickworks, the queue here is more manageable.
