Cart Noodle My virgin experience at Legendary was average, so don't ask why I'm trying another lol. I chose thick egg noodles with beef brisket soup, topped with fried fishcakes, ajitama and fish fillet. Noodles were like meepok except much softer. Soup was ordinary. Fishcakes were certainly unusual in Singapore, tougher but fuller. Fillet was the cheap, thin type in primary school zzz.

Hong Kong Cart Noodles I really liked the concept of the colourful sign boards and decorations which were bursting with life. This was one of the reason which diverted my attention from other restaurants. My friends and I customized 2 bowls and ordered 1 'Tai Koo Boy' to try. Since I am a HUGEEEE fan of spicy food, I customised my order of signature spicy curry soup along with eggs, white radish and bean curd puff. Wanted to try the pork knuckle but it was out of stock :( Though the soup was light, I would say that I was disappointed as it was only lightly spiced. Not quite the taste I was expecting. Tried some of Tai Koo Boy and it was not too bad while the chicken soup was too light (again). My verdict: Although reasonably priced around 8.80++, I will not be here returning any sooner, and will probably try out other selections if I do

For Halal Mala With the opening of Peppercorn, you can now bring your muslim friends to try this well-loved dish by the Chinese. The setting is interesting, with the typical cafe feels juxtaposed against oriental vibes (there's a wall filled with Chinese dragon door knockers). I personally prefer my mala drier, so the soupier version here didn't quite appeal to me. It also isn't very fragrant. However, I do like the scallion oil noodles that were coated in a sweet-savoury sauce - a good balance to the spicy-numbing mala pot. The ingredients here are charged by weight, so pick wisely!

Mala Hotpot Soupy Variation Tried a variation of the popular mala hotpot at Peppercorn, 30 Kandahar St. The usual mala hotpot is a dry version, this one comes with a flavorful stock, topped with peppery hot spices. The pepper stays on your tongue, giving the "ma" feeling. As usual, you get to select from a wide variety of ingredients, from meats to fish, tofu, mushrooms, vegetables... The place is cosy and air conditioned.

Xiao Jun Gan Chuan Chuan Xiang 小郡肝串串香 Steamboat Buffet [$25.80+/pax on Fri to Sun] Back again at the steamboat lane in Bugis 😂 We were here on an early weekend afternoon and Xiao Jun Gan Chuan Chuan Xiang is one of the few that opens earlier. The $ per pax doesn’t include drinks (there’s lots of watermelon to help quench your thirst), but is inclusive of the soup base which many of the other places down the lane charge separately for. We had the Yuan Yang option of ma la and herbal soup. Both were flavourful and not too salty that makes you thirsty. Was looking forward to the skewers, but unfortunately, the majority of them were beef which we don’t take. Those we could have, the chicken wings and chicken, were marinated pretty well with a good rub of spices. Thankfully, they had quite a big range of fresh ingredients including crabs and a variety of clams, so it wasn’t too big of a problem! Make sure to also give their appetisers of liang pi and century egg tofu a try too as they were done very nicely. Liked that the space was airy and cooling with a strong enough air conditioning!

Awesome And Affordable Ma La Lok Lok Hotpot Buffet!! Visited Xiao Jun Gan for a late dinner/supper at 10pm and it was pretty crowded on a Friday night! There are issues parking around the Beach Road eateries as it’s quite hard to find a parking lot so we ended up parking at Shaw Tower and walking across the street. Xiao Jun Gan offers hotpot buffets for $25.90++, and $27.90++ on Friday, and weekends. We went for the yuan yang double broth - and the server recommended their signature ma la broth with the clear soup. This was a great recommendation. I loved the fiery heat and tingling numbness of the ma la broth which was just right. Not as numbing as HDL’s but this one was actually possible to drink (somewhat)! I especially enjoyed dipping the you tiao lok lok and fried mini mantous into this broth as they soaked up the ma la goodness! The clear soup was a good complement to the ma la broth as it was light, but the flavours started to get more pronounced as it boiled longer and we had a super flavourful broth by the middle of our meal. The selection of ingredients is good too - from a variety of veggies, fishcakes and marinated meats on skewers, to the MLXG/YTF-esque style ingredients where you ‘kiap’ your own veg, meat, seafood, tofu and more. They have fish roe filled tofu and fishcake available- yay! What impressed me was the seafood selection of scallops, crabs, prawns, and they even had octopus too!!!! While you’re waiting for your ingredients to cook (which admittedly doesn’t take long), there’s appetisers that you can opt for. There’s sour and spicy chilled silken tofu and dou Gan which tasted great! There’s also fried mini mantous and watermelon and pineapples. This section doesn’t get refilled so often unlike the hotpot ingredients though. The seasoning section is not bad, not as comprehensive as HDL but I’m happy as long as there’s chilli, sesame paste and peanuts. There’s also apparently a can of special oil that they leave at your table which you can mix in with the condiments at an extra cost but we didn’t go for that this round. Note that the pot is quite shallow so sometimes the ingredients on skewers don’t get fully submerged, especially when the soup has evaporated. But the staff are quite attentive and come refill the soups often. An extra plus is that the boss is super friendly and attentive. He’s on the ground helping out the rest of the staff to clear plates, refill soup broths, checking if the diners need anything, etc. He also told us that the ma la broth is customisable so we can make it more or less spicy/numbing. They also have an ala carte MLXG available - which we might just come and try next time! This is definitely a place I would return to, and it’s a great supper place that opens till 7am! Whoop!

Weekend Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet It’s going for quality and not quantity over here at Andaz! Love the overall consistency of all the food that they offered. There are both buffet spread and ala carte ordering. Special mention to their red bean soup which i love it so much that i had 2 servings of it! Not starchy but just the right consistency of the gooeyness! The sweetness was so light with dried citrus being added in. Another mention-worthy dish is their fried carrot cake, soft carrot cake with the right proportion of egg makes it so flavourful!
I Recommend The NEW “Mala Claypot Set Meal” ($60++ for 2 pax) H O S T E D This is NOT your typical “mala hotpot” experience. It’s upscale (think comfortable and elegant dining space complete with a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area) and food-wise, delivers in terms of being audaciously fragrant and fiercely spicy. At $60++ for 2 pax, the Mala Set Meal at “Auntie’s Wok & Steam” on the 25th floor of Andaz Singapore Hotel is without a doubt, very good value. Not only do you get to choose from three kinds of premium proteins (Barramundi, Kurobuta pork and Wagyu beef) to be stirfried very well with black fungi and mushrooms in a housemade blend of uber aromatic “mala” spices, but the set also includes a plate of fiery Firecracker Fried Chicken (we love that they cut the meat into big boneless pieces), steamed organic rice that has a really pleasant taste, and four icy-cold bottles of Andaz Pale Ale. Adding on a plate of stirfried vegetables is a good idea in my opinion as it helps make the meal more balanced.
Ma la xiang guo (麻辣香锅) is definitely a “newer” chinese dish. I’ve never even heard of it until the past 10 years of so, but it has since exploded in popularity in Singapore and in China as well, so much so that there are tons of restaurants thriving on just this one dish. • Intelligently jumping on the trend and demand, @andazsingapore has come up with a mala xiang guo set worth talking about. Unlike some places where you get to pick your items, there are only three items to choose from, Australian Wagyu, Pork collar and @kuhlbarra Barramundi. I decided to go with pork on the advice of the chefs and wasn’t disappointed. It was typical Kurobuta, tender and juicy. The pot comes filled with other delicious ingredients such as lotus roots and mushrooms as well. • The $60 set comes with a large mala claypot, crispy firecracker chicken, two bowls of fluffy white rice and 4 bottles of Andaz Pale Ale. • While pricier than what you would usually pay for at hawker joints, the fact that you’re dining 25 stories high with a panoramic view of the city, coupled with the signature Andaz good service makes it insane value. • (Media Tasting)

Pipa Duck Rice You seldom get to find pipa duck rice at affordable price in Singapore but thanks to this young ladies who brought their skill to the eaters at Burlington Square. Consider a pretty small shop inside the building, with not many seats available. But don’t miss out trying their roasted meat with either noodle or rice. The pipa duck was prepared for at least 5 hours and above, so they are juicy yet not so oily. $5.80
Rice ($0.50) 07/09/19 (Part 4/4) The portions of rice given seemed smaller than average but was drizzled with a layer of flavourful savoury soya sauce. Very tasty, and can very well be eaten on its own.... a bad thing as you're here for their meats! :)(We actually wanted their noodles but they were sold out when we were there) Taste: 8/10 Price: 7/10 Overall: 7.5/10 Overall, good food, OK price, OK ambience, OK service (Very friendly but food took quite awhile). Price: 6/10 Taste: 8/10 Ambience: 5.5/10 Overall: 6.5/10 (Worth trying if in the area) Full review at: https://thankgodjournals.blogspot.com/2019/09/restaurant-review-eat-3-cuts-01-49.html
Sicily Coffee ($4.30; Cannot remember the exact price) 07/09/19 This was surprisingly good as the sour tangy and refreshing flavour of the lemonade totally contrast and gets washed down by the bitter aftertaste of the coffee. Do note that as the lemonade is quite acidic though, you do not want to be drinking this on an empty stomach. Taste: 8/10 (For its unique factor, do give this a shot) Full review at: https://thankgodjournals.blogspot.com/2019/09/restaurant-review-eat-3-cuts-01-49.html
