Unagi Benedict

Quirky restaurant with an interesting take on their food ie, oyster congee, Pork ribs crossiant and truffle pork dumplings. What interest me most was the unagi benedict though. Unlike the typical eggs Benedict, this dish is topped with grilled unagi, which is a refreshing change. The accompanying mantous were deep fried to a crispy golden brown and fluffy interior ; it's topped with a Low temperature egg, mushroom duxelles and drenched in yuzu hollandaise sauce. Everything complemented everything and I can say, it was a very satisfying meal. πŸ˜‹

Complimentary Man Tou And Tau Suan

All main dishes comes with complimentary tau suan which is accompanied by a mantou, instead of the usual dough fritter. I love their man tous, now only if the have Chilli crab πŸ€”

5- Spice Duck- Smoked Duck Breast, Spiced Duck Leg Confit, Homemade Hoisin Sauce, Apricot Coulis, Steam Buns; XYT Ayam Percik- Chargrilled Spring Chicken with Spiced Coconut Cream and Lime; Crispy Otah Rolls with Tangy Tamarind Peanut Sauce; Braised Baby Spinach with Hand-picked Crabmeat, Goji Berry, Egg Flower Scallop Broth; Charred Eggplant with Sichuan Pepper Spiced Lamb and Pickled Chilli Yoghurt

Upscale meal with inspiration from around the world- yet consisting predominantly of Asian flavours (i.e Lamb and Yoghurt combination primarily seen in Indian cuisine; steam bun with smoked duck breast a fusion of western and Chinese cuisine). I throughly enjoyed the meal although guilty of failing to capture all flavours carefully as we hungrily chow down our food.
The charred eggplant was a stunning combination that surprisingly worked though it would be a home run if the Yoghurt was more pronounced.
The 5-Spiced Duck was a delight to have with the steamed pocket baos as well.
On the other side of the table, the baby spinach broth- was a winning classic that was worth trying.
Because we decided to head over to apiary for desserts instead, we will be back for the full course with their 2 interesting dessert items on the dinner menu.

Pork Knuckle Fritters ($18)

This was super shiok. You get x5 very crispy deep fried pulled pork potato ball-like things dressed with sriracha mayo and served with a cucumber som tam. The batter of the fritter was what made it for me (of course, the tastiness of the filling and tenderness of the pulled pork also helped).

They do work out to be $3.60 a fritter so... many small bites.

πŸ‘πŸΌ

XYT Hokkien Mee ($16)

I'm not usually a big fan of Hokkien mee because... I'm Team Black Hokkien Mee (πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ) and also the siapsiap aftertaste of yellow mee does not sit well with me. However, this was deliciousss. The use of thick rice noodles ensured it wasn't too starchy (and siapsiap-free) however, it was not as "wok charred" as described in the menu. There was a generous serving of large prawns & clams and the overall flavour had the right amount of prawniness. Prawness? I'm going with prawniness.

Service was excellent, our hostess came over to give recommendations and check on the food. Also, the interior of the place is a sight to behold: lanterns, kitsch posters, old school telephones and booby art.

πŸ‘πŸΌ I'd defo come back to try the rest of the menu.

"East meets West".

Brunching with an Asian touch when Egg Bendict meets fried mantou as a base and topped with slabs of grilled unagi coated with savoury bbq sauce.

An interesting pairing option indeed.

Heard so much about XYT Hokkien Mee before heading down to try for myself.

😍 Yes, the rumour is true. It was as good as being described by many!πŸ€€πŸ‘πŸ» The $16 price tag justifiable by those gigantic prawns, clams, smoked pancetta and superior pork broth used. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ŒπŸ» Reserve a table now through @chopesg to prevent disappointment when you head down! 😊

My kind of coffee to start of the day.

For those who like Coffee at @symmetrysg Xiao Ya Tou do actually serve Symmetry Coffee too!

Drunken Flower Clams $23.00.

They used young ginger, garlic, sake, wolfberry and shaoxing wine that the broth is so flavourful!! Just give me a bowl of rice and I can finish this Clams all by myself.

Magnified carrot cake with sunny side up and minced pork.

The carrot cake was ultra crispy on the outside and salty and soft on the inside. You can bring your own egg and get $1 off.

Before even trying the new dishes on the dinner menu at @xiaoyatou.sg, I'm already loving the space here!

😍 The food definitely did not disappoint, I love the pork knuckle fritters especially! Such a creative dish. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Highly recommended that you make a reservation through @chopesg before coming down to prevent disappointment! ☺

TGIF with a spread at this gem.

Here, they serve local food in their own rendition and glam, of course this comes with a price.

My 2 favourites:
XYT Hokkien Mee β€”$16
Drunken Flower Clams β€”$23
.
Their Hokkien Mee is cooked with smoked pancetta, clams and prawns. Their noodles soaked up the pork broth and that chilli is how i liked it. (Not too spicy la.) Well, although it lacks slightly of the wok-hei we get from hawkers, this is still an indefinite dish that i will return for. Besides the drunken flower clams dish that gets everything right from the rice wine, sake to wolfberry, ginger and garlic. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Hokkien Mee $16

If you are expecting a traditional Hokkien Mee, you might need to look elsewhere. While this is not necessarily cause for immediate condemnation, the use of smoked pancetta in addition to pork broth permeated the noodles with an overpoweringly porky taste, when one might reasonably expect the perfume of prawn stock.

I also found XYT's rendition lacking in wok hei, and my dining partners agreed as well. Puzzling since I'm seeing reviews to the contrary.

On the flipside, there was a generous amount of clams and pancetta, and the viscuous amalgamation of gravy, eggs and noodles had loads of umami.

Still debating whether I like this one or not.
