Fantastic and Affordable Nasi Lemak Famous Nasi Lemak from Holland Village. For an affordable price of $3.50, you get a fried chicken wing, acar, a fried egg, ikan bilis with peanuts, sambal, cucumber and of course the Nasi Lemak rice. Although the rice wasn't extremely coconutty in terms of flavour, but it was decent enough to know that it was coconut rice, and the general fluffiness and fragrance was there. For a modest price of $3.50 this is a very complete set, the chicken crisp outside, juicy inside, acar tasted sweet, sour, and a little spicy. Sambal could have been a bit better (in terms of having more of a spicy kick, it's more to the sweeter side), and well the fried egg had a semi runny yolk (don't expect this all the time, I don't think they are very consistent with cooking fried sunny side up eggs with a runny yolk). Overall, thumbs up!! Rate 4.5/5!

Good Enough Nasi Lemak This nasi lemak stall has been here since the beginning of times and the star is really in the sambal. I particularly like the Long beans with sambal because they are cooked so well. Elsewhere they are either overcooked , too greasy or worst still, undercooked . Given that the really good nasi lemak stalls are in the Far East of Singapore , this location at holland is perfect for a west- tee like me. Since my last try , the rice quality has improved quite a bit - they used to use rice that was so poor in quality , it tasted like plastic . The rice is now featherlight and has a soft coconut aroma. Having said that - I kept coming back because of the yummy condiments that they serve and that they are open throughout the day so there is no fuss about rushing in early to get my nasi lemak fix.

363 Holland Village Nasi Lemak Weekend breakfasts are made of these. Oozy egg atop fluffy, fragrant coconut rice, crispy ikan billies and peanuts, shiok sambal and soft eggplant. Unfortunately the fried chicken wasn鈥檛 the best cause it had been sitting out for a bit, but everything else made up for it. 馃構

Taiwan Chiayi Chicken Rice Returned back to Monki Cafe after my first trip a couple of years ago to try out their mains. Couldn't give the Taiwan Chiayi Chicken Rice a miss considering how much I like Eat 3 Bowl's rendition of the Taiwanese-style Chicken Rice. Thought the version here was palatable though certainly not the best I have had; while there was a decent portion of shredded chicken topped over the fluffy rice beneath, the chicken would have been even better being more moist 鈥 still provided a decent meatiness and savouriness nonetheless. Coming with preserved vegetables, it provides a slight tang for some contrast in flavour, while the Braised Egg comes drenched with the same sauce that comes with the Braised Minced Meat Rice for an enhanced note of savouriness with some bits of minced meat to chew on. A pretty decent place to get those Taiwanese cuisine cravings sorted out especially for the Westies; all in a pretty chill, cute and laid-back environment that's great for catching up with friends or dates.

Taiwanese Braised Pork Rice Bowl This place also introduced a series of Taiwanese cuisine on top of their signature dessert items. The braised pork was delicious and melt whenever you bite on it. The portion consider small for me, perhaps giving more room for some dessert here.

Lemon Ginger Spring 5-Course Degustation Menu A milk chocolate financier acted as a centerpiece for torched meringue, lemon cream and ginger spiced sorbet. Sprinkled around was spice-infused jelly cubes and toasted tiger nuts. A ginger ribbon tuile was delicately balanced on top. It was paired with my favorite wine pairing of the night, Antech Semi Sweet Sparkling, a mellow, sweet champagne. And champagne is always fun. This was a close second favorite among the five courses. The refreshing lemon flavor threaded through all the elements of the dessert, balanced out the richness of the financier. Yet there was a subtle undertone of spice in the jelly cubes, meringue and tuile that was not too overpowering. The nuts and tuile added amazing texture and crunch to the dish. It was a wonderful end to the degustation menu.

Kinkan Osmanthus Tea Spring 5-Course Degustation Menu Kinkan is the Japanese name for kumquat, which I have never tried before. In this Japanese-inspired dessert the fruit was paired with pistachio crumble, osmanthus tea gel and shungiku ice cream. Smoked cream, olive oil marinaded pomelo and sprinklings of yuzu powder finished off the dish. It was paired with a glass of Gramona Gewurztraminer, a delicious, sweet white wine. I am thoroughly impressed by the fact that none of the alcoholic drinks had that characteristic bitter aftertaste that comes from cheap alcohol. The dessert itself was reminiscent of an apple crumble. The pistachio's earthy flavor contrasted perfectly with the natural citrusy sweetness of the kinkan and the tea-like taste of the shinjuku ice cream. It was absolutely delicious and nostalgic.

Pandan Chocolate Spring 5-Course Degustation Menu This unassuming block of chocolate cake turned out to be my favorite in the 5 courses. I adore chocolate so I was so excited when this arrived. It was triple layered; pandan sponge cake and Orelys ganache sandwiched Japanese black sugar parfait. The stack was then dipped in a dark chocolate coating. The Orelys ganache totally blew me away. Made from blond chocolate and containing dark muscovado sugar, it was rich, creamy and had surprise bits of fresh grape that popped in my mouth and helped cut through the richness of the dessert. I couldn't stop eating it. I only wished it was larger, it was so good.
