People growing up in the Katong area and beyond will vividly recall the iconic Chin Mee Chin Confectionery along East Coast Road and the place has underwent some renovations but the nostalgic charm still remains. The Breakfast Set of kaya toast, soft boiled eggs and drink ($4.90) is the quintessential Singaporean breakfast and is something that Chin Mee Chin Confectionery has perfected it. The soft pillowy texture of the bun with the pandan coconut jam and slab of butter is just something that you will crave for anytime of the day while you slurp down the perfectly boiled eggs that has been seasoned with dark soya sauce and a dash of white pepper. Wash it all down with some kopi-o and this is your instant boost of energy or perk-me-up kinda meal.

Don't miss this newly opened izakaya joint near Berseh Food Centre! Their menu might be small but they make it up with their value-for-money donburis. Priced affordably at $14.90, their Unagi Don was "adequately savoury & sweet teriyaki glaze" which "envelopes the half fillet of freshwater eel, and the simple yet savoury unagi shares the bowl space with an explosive onsen egg & some rice" and had Burppler Russell Leong thoroughly impressed. Other must orders include the Chicken Yaki Don ($14.90) and Mayo Karaage Don ($13.90). Finish off your meal with a pint of beer.

Along Nankin Row on Pickering Street sits this cafe & bar, perfect for an after-work hangout with colleagues. Specialising in Asian-fusion Western dishes, their Islandspices Chicken Rendang Nasi Lemak ($13.90) sees specialty coconut rice, tender chicken rendang, fluffy omelette topped with peanut ikan bilis and their signature sambal. Up the spice with their Sambal Pork Chop ($18.90) or share the Shelby's Signature Pizza ($24.90) — 10 inch pizza done Shelby style, with pork bacon and pepperoni infused into soft creamy cheese, topping off with a sunny side up smack in the middle.

Tucked away in the Eunos Industrial Estate, this aptly-themed industrial style bistro is the perfect spot for after-work hangouts with colleagues and friends. Come with an empty stomach and fuel up with their generously portioned mains, from Grilled Chicken Aglio Olio ($12.25), Grilled Pork Chop with Herbs ($12.25) to their Premium Grain-Fed Ribeye Steak ($32).

And now for 厨皇’s signature bird, the concubine chicken. No, I’m not referring to a king’s kept woman in a disparaging way, I’m talking about this Hong Kong style poached poultry right here. The main difference between this concubine chicken (aka Gui Fei Chicken, christened after Yang Guifei who was one of the four beauties of ancient China) and Hainanese chicken is rather simple.⠀

While Hainanese chicken is simmered in water with some herbs, concubine chicken is poached in an exotic elixir of rose wine and lots of herbs. Thus, you get a touch more flavour with every bite of bird, even though those additional flavours are pretty mild. In fact, a good deal of its satisfying umami-ness is derived from the herbal soy sauce sparingly poured over it, while the herbal notes are more than content to be wingmen to the whole event.⠀

The flavours are delightfully nuanced, but the incredible textures of the chicken aren’t afraid to hog the limelight. The meat is stunningly supple & majestically moist thanks to the perfect cook on the chicken. Meanwhile, that porcelain & slightly yellowish skin is essentially deliciously fatty & felicitous jell-o. Ladies, eat that skin, because it’s full of collagen and other stuff that’ll keep your skin flawless.⠀

Normally, spreading legs this amazing costs at least five hundred bucks, but at 厨皇, getting stuck into these legs only costs nine dollars (per leg). You’re god damn right I’ll be back to patronise these leggy beauties, and you best believe it.

The poké bowls taster really healthy. Each bowl had a generous serving of salmon sashimi. The fish tasted fresh, and the sauces (left: classic, right: spicy) covered any fishy taste. Even non-sashimi lovers will love this. The pickled watermelons and carrot strips is an acquired taste, and may not be for everyone. Our drinks(homemade yuzu) were quite diluted, would not recommend. The people tending the store were also q friendly (esp the uncle tending the cashier :D).

厨皇 char siew (glazed bbq pork) is radically different from most other char siews in Singapore, as they neither barbecue nor roast their pork. Instead, their cuts of pork belly are slowly braised in their proprietary char siew sauce till cooked through.⠀

Don’t expect the char siew to have any wonderfully charred crust due to it being essentially braised, but you can reliably expect the meat to be tremendously tender. Due to it being a cut of pork belly, there’s an ample amount of fat running through the char siew. That jiggly, gelatinous fat adds a great deal of flavour to the sweet & salty char siew sauce, creating a uniquely divine porcine devouring experience.⠀

This substantial portion of char siew is a damn delicious way to part with ten dollars, and you best believe imma do it again.

Tucked along the back of Burlington Square sits this HK-inspired cafe, serving up crispy egglettes and milk tea for a satisfying mid-afternoon snack! Offering a variety of flavours ranging from Brown Sugar ($3.80), Egglette with Dark Choco Bits ($4.20) or the classic Original ($3.50), order up their egglettes or take a pick from their traditional desserts — Grass Jelly with Lychee/Longan ($3.50) or Coconut Sago with Honeydew/Watermelon ($4) to cool down the midday heat.
