Rojak with a twist
.
Mille Feuille layered with rojak flavoured custard and torch ginger flower-infused fruits

This rendang was very flavourful and the portion was just nice for one. We ordered the bua keluk spaghetti as well however, we found that it was on a very bland side and we had to ask for salt to enhance the flavour of this dish. Overall it is worthwhile to try with Burpple.

Chef ran out of spaghetti but still managed to create a special dish for me (Bueh Keluak with seafood). Owner Marie and Christopher were chatty and courteous, overall very pleasant experience and we had to get the belachan and kueh lapis for a try! Definitely bringing my family n friends here back for a visit!

Have previously reviewed the curry chicken, chap chye, and otah so I wonโ€™t be going into details, but all 3 were very enjoyable as usual. The omelette was nice and pretty homely tasting, with crunchy prawns in it. Itโ€™s decently sized too so itโ€™s a great dish for sharing. Note to self to try the sweet and sour fish & ytf next time!

Slightly crisp on the outside, rather tender and easy to eat. The sauce could be tangier as I like sour stuff, but this is a p decent pork chop. Iโ€™ll skip this if Iโ€™m coming in a group of 2-3 (would rather order other items), but in a bigger group this is worth ordering!

Babba is a new addition to Jalan Riang, a stretch of eateries hidden within an enclave of landed houses nearby Serangoon MRT Station. Cafe by day and Peranakan restaurant by night, I popped by for breakfast.

The breakfast/ brunch menu is pretty lean, with only six items on offer. The Homemade Kaya Butter Toast & Eggs has been doing the rounds on social media, but I was loathe to pay $12 for something you can get at a kopi tiam for under $4. It's just kaya, folks, not Japanese A5 Wagyu beef.

I picked the ๐—•๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ($8), which came with a choice of toast (I had the Sourdough) and eggs (I chose scrambled). The ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต was well toasted, with crispy edges and a fluffy centre. The ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—˜๐—ด๐—ด๐˜€ were divine, fantastically fragrant and creamy.

To beef it up, I added a ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ ($6), ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—บ๐˜€ ($5) and some ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—–๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป (3 pcs, $5.50). The sausage was ok, while I liked the earthiness of the mushrooms. The undisputed star, however, was the bacon. Other places serve paper-thin slices of bacon that are overly greasy, but Babba's bacon was THICK and not oily at all. It was seductively scrumptious.

I also ordered the ๐—˜๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ผ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ ($4.50) but it was too acidic and sour for my liking. Overall I loved the food at @babba.sg and would like to try the dinner menu, although the prices tend to be on the steeper side.

3.5โญ Cherki is located at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre which is at quite a secluded location in Tanjong Pagar. The food served is peranakan fusion, even the cocktail menu is exotic and not those usual normal cocktail. We utilised burpple beyond 1 for 1 deal. I had the laksa linguine while WB had seafood fried rice. The food is good but didn't wow me. It's the bar counter which caught my attention though.

If you're looking for authentic and delicious peranakan food, look no further than @the.blueginger . I obviously have a palate inclined towards western flavours. However I was still extremely impressed by the meal!

The rendang here is braised for hours and mixed with a sauce rich in ginger, lemongrass, and lime leaf. But what was special was how thick and creamy and coconut-forward the actual rendang was!

They really know how to handle their meats here because they turned this unassuming chicken thigh into one of my favourites of the meal. The skin was crispy and the meat so tender! The creamy smokeiness of the sauce will win over even the most stubborn of picky eaters. A dark horse but a crowd favourite in the end.

I'm usually a fan of this style of fish because well... I like little chunks of deep fried meat. But the fish here was way too dry. What a letdown.
