This 24-hour opened handmade pau shop is located inside a coffee shop along Jalan Besar.

It is popular for serving a variety of pau and dim sum.

Decided to have a Giant Ye Zhi Mei pau, it is named as such, as the size of the pau is almost a handful. Just Google search Yi zhi mei/ Amy Yip and u will know what these pau are being compared with.

The white steam bread was firm enough to contain all the "juices" within, yet it was soft enough to eat with a subtle sweetness along with it.

The meat within was just a burst of Umami, it had lup cheong, mushrooms, pork belly, half a steam egg and of course, the minced pork. I would dare say, this is a better pau compared to Nam Kee.

Dim sum I had was nothing special to me. But it wasn't bad. Just tasted normal.

My first visit to the highly raved Omote! I was surprised at how spacious the restaurant was, and how far the queue stretched. Their chirashi dressing is slightly sweet, thus the taste profile can get quite boring after awhile. Although their bowls are small, the serving is generous so a normal bowl is more than enough. The upsized order is pretty worth in value as the difference is only about a dollar.

And the fillet is almost more tender than the drumstick. Masterful stuff, this is insane. Honestly this might be my favourite soya sauce ckn place, huazai sometimes too salty, Maria virgin is definitely too salty.

This stall's is tender and clean yet doesn't compromise on flavour at all.

Tom’s Palette is known for its unique and creative gelato flavours that are usually rotating as they have since created too many flavours to have them all in the shop. Their ice cream is made with fresh and raw ingredients, handmade without the addition of stabilisers, premixes or artificial flavouring.

The flavours which are available during my visit include Granny’s Favourite, Chocolate Sorbet, Rum & Raisin, Almond Biscuit, Banana Chocolate, Banana Honey Roasted Nuts, Chocolate Stout, Oreo Cheesecake, Goma & Sesame Brittle. Honey Cinnamon, Lychee, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Salted Egg Yolk, Yuzu, Milo Dinosaur, Milk & Chocolate Almonds, Nuts & Such, Parmesan Cheese & Cream Crackers, Hojicha, Root Beer Float, Strawberry, Nutella Swirl, Earl Grey and Savoury Crunch.

One thing I like about them is the choice of having two flavours (for the same price) in a cup regardless of cup size which makes me not get bored from eating only one flavour in one go. The flavours we chose were Hojicha and Honey Cinnamon, Rum & Raisin and Yuzu. Hojicha was fragrant and earthy but a little on the sweet side while rum & raisin comes with a good amount of alcohol where a lot of places do not have such strong flavours compared to them.

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we get to enjoy 2 Medium Cup for the price of 1 ✌ (U.P $5)

PSA come at 12pm to avoid the crowd, sharp. From 12 to 1210 u can see the restaurant gets filled very very fast, and if you come at 1210 suddenly the wait is a lot more significant. They're fast tho so it doesn't matter that much

Didn't know it's gonna be deep fried but it was very oily and very spicy. The chili's flavour is pretty good tho. Ckn was tender too

PSA NO MORE LUNCH SET, murtabak Manis only available after 3pm(idk if it's always like that but probably)

This was delicious. Based on the pics I saw,I expected sth like a bakchor mee without vinegar and chili, just oil but this was very different. The chicken stew was amazingly savoury and sweet, and so intense in flavour. So it's mainly the gravy from the ckn stew w quite a bit of oil. Super delicious and a must try

I never had Russian food before so this was new. Really enjoyed the different flavours because it was so strong, sinful and robust. Highly recommend if you like to try new foods and love flavours :)

Went to the Russian Street Food branch at Lau Pa Sat, ordered the dumplings, the potato salad and the mushroom and cheese puff. Honestly, a big eye opener having never had russian food before, and the dumplings were really unique since each one has it’s own filling. I really liked the cheese and mushroom puff too, will probably try some of the other flavours some time.

This popular curry rice attracts long queues even on weekdays so you can imagine the snaking queues on a late Saturday afternoon.

I think it's quite overhyped though because I wasn't wowed at all by the curry nor the liao? It all amounted to a whopping $15 too when I didn't even order much meat.
