What a fantastic Sunday in Singapore for some La Bamba La Fiesta! Got to relive our Europe travels witnessing the largest paella cooked by Chef Houssein Hafian (and probably the yummiest ever, we counted there were at least 6 jugs of prawn stock infused in that paella rice), spectacular croquetas de trufas, pocadillo de jamón, sangria, salsa music (swipe💃🏻!!), who can resist?! Thank you for all the happy and fun vibes. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend! Can't wait for the next #LaFiestaTardeo!

We are usually not that intrigued by similar Chinese dimsum stalls but these Xiao Long Baos look legit. They are plump, not too dense, and with each bite, the warm soup oozes out, boasting a light pork tang along with tender and soft meat. For the size, these babies come in sixes at $4.50, really good value for money for the quality.
.
As we tried to ration our food intake, we thought the Pork Dumpling Noodles Dry ($4) would allow us to try out their Pork Dumpling with Chilli while still enjoying the ramen, without over-ordering two separate dishes. Here, the wanton had a silky skin, but lightly chewy so that they did not fall apart immediately. The filling had a good proportion of meat to chives, not forgetting the meat was of similar tenderness to the XLBs, but really really memorable. Tossed in fragrant chilli sesame oil, each mouthful was a delight to behold, sweet, spicy, savoury and everything nice!
.
We are indeed so blessed to be able to enjoy these not only cheap, but restaurant-quality alternatives tediously prepared by hand. We will definitely be back to support, again and again. Read more: www.atasteofdojo.com/supreme-ramen-xiao-long-bao/

Unlike some mala places, the ingredients here are charged by the number of ingredients picked, and not by weight. For 6 types of vegetables, we paid $8 and this is just nice for both of us! Probably the cheapest we have spent on mala to date. Best eaten with a bowl of fluffy rice, this bowl was served with mouth-watering aroma. Personal favourites are bean threads, fried beancurd sheets, wood ear, golden and enoki mushrooms (wow, just realised how big of a mushroom fan we are!), potato noodles, and kai lan (but it ran out today so we got dou miao, Doug’s fav). Who needs meat when veggies are so amazing in a big bowl of yummy mala?
.
The mala xiang guo is really fragrant, and their potato noodles are a must order - thin, chewy and really delightful. The enoki mushrooms did well in absorbing some flavour from the mala paste, and tasted savoury and slightly peppery.
.
For zhong la (中辣), the dish was sufficiently spicy, and a tad numb but not overly tingly, plus it wasnt drizzled with peppercorns all over! We asked for less oil and the dish came definitely not slurpy oily! Seasoned with nuts and coriander, they make for a great combination when tossed around in the piquant mala sauce. Slightly savoury but not overpowering, the sauce allowed the flavor to shine through. This is a great place to indulge in an addictively flavoursome bowl of mala hot pot.

Saltiness: 3/5
Numb: 3.5/5
Spicy: 3/5
Flavor Fragrance: 4/5

If you’re working near Old Airport Road, you can’t miss this stall right smack in the middle. Opened sometime in mid 2017, this stall is owned by a Thai couple, dishing out authentic flavours.
.
First up, we have the Green Curry Chicken ($6.5). If you’re looking for a curry with strong “gao” flavours and thick soup, this is definitely for you! Comes piping hot with tender chicken pieces, in a thick curry that’s just best on white fluffy rice. The curry contains red chili, basil and eggplants, boiled down till soft, and keeps the tastebuds just wanting more, spoonful after spoonful. This can get really addictive if your office is nearby and you always have this option open for lunch. ;)
.
We also had the Basil Leaf Minced Chicken with Rice ($5.5), topped with a sunny side up. The hero is in the basil leaves, chili, and the sauces! Makes the dish really flavourful, savoury with a slight sweetness. Our guess is that the gravy contains fish sauce and a dash of cooking wine which brings out the fragrance that goes so well with the basil leaves! Great to have this on your mental lunch menu, definitely satisfying!
.
We try out the Spicy Minced Chicken Salad ($10) which Jo had previously on her trip to Thailand. This didn’t disappoint, and the minced chicken is wonderfully seasoned with fish sauce, chili flakes, lime juice and steam veggies to give it some crunchy texture, and a wonderful assortment of fresh herbs to bring it all together.
.
Great flavours that you definitely don’t wanna miss if you’re working nearby and craving a quick Thai fix!

EVER. These things are so soft that they melt in your mouth. Baked to golden brown perfection, the outer is crisp and crumbly and brushed with honey butter the second they come out of the oven, while the inside is soft, buttery and fluffy. Almost like the perfect marriage between sweet and salty and a touch of sticky honey, they are heavenly delicious when warm, right when it is served. Warning: one is never gonna be enough!

More simple delights at McDonald's, this little mix-up is part of their trend of innovations playing on the plain vanilla ice-cream cone (pun intended) along with the likes of yesteryear’s chendol, banana and lychee.
.
With a slight matcha note and light ending hints of soy, this is not too bad for a dollar and ten!

Oh wait, I mean beancurd and potatoes too. This plate from Boon Wah costs $4.40. The rice grains are like brothers, close, yet nicely separated, definitely not stuck together... and that makes all the difference! 饭桶s out there, you get me right?

A new stall that came to replace, their BCM is fairly decent for $3.50. Thankful for affordable food at my estate and hope they will stay around for a longer period :)

Chee cheong fun at this stall is freshly made on order, the traditional way with a cloth, and stuffed with choice of tender chicken, char siew, mushroom or prawns.
.
At $3 per 2 strips, we got the prawn (3 whole prawns in each strips imagine that!!) and chicken options which were tender and juicy! The CCF is drenched in a savoury light sauce that goes really well with the chili! This plate is $6 but it is not a bad option if you’re passing by the area!
.
Pictured on the second image is their steamed pork dumplings ($4 for 7). Bite into them for a juicy and generous meat filling (+whole prawn again!!) made tastier with the drizzled sauce and garnished with fragrant spring and fried onions!
