first time trying the iced hojicha latte with oat milk from Oatside ($9.30 nett) and it tastes even better than before!! i’m really Oatside’s biggest fan…

This was the mainstay of our dinner, a yuzu coconut hotpot with a huge variety of ingredients, including red dates, peach gum, white fungus, mushrooms, lotus roots and goji berries! It felt like a pretty healthy dish and we really liked the yuzu broth, which was only slightly sour and yet it felt very refreshing at the same time. The taste of coconut in the broth wasn't very pronounced and it might have been a good thing, as the soup might have been too gelat if it went too heavy on the coconut. This was the $40++ version, which was larger and had more ingredients; we think this is just right for 4 pax if the hotpot is meant to be the main dish for your meal!

When we saw an item selling crispy roast park in New Fut Kai's menu, we were taken by surprise as we thought that it was a vegetarian restaurant. Upon greater inspection, however, we found that the "roast pork" was actually made using lion mane mushrooms rather than using pork! The skin was really crispy but it wasn made using pig skin and instead, it was made using a soy-based mixture. Although it certainly doesn't taste like your usual roast pork, it does taste pretty good especially when you pair it with the sweet sauce served on the sides! If you want to eat the vegetables, we suggest that you use them to wrap the "pork" first as the vegetables tasted pretty bitter when we tried them on their own.

Pretty decent serving for around $20++ and we would want to try their other creative vegetarian dishes in future, including the vegetarian roast duck.

We chanced upon a really popular vegetarian restaurant in the Jalan Besar area - New Fut Kai! Do note that the restaurant was almost fully reserved when we arrived, and we were thankful to get a table only because we reached really early.

For our appetisers, we ordered the charcoal tofu, which comprised of 6 chunks of minced tofu each battered with flour mixed with sesame, to give each piece of tofu a crispy and black exterior. The tofu were immersed in a pumpkin-based sauce, which gave a slight sweetness to the tofu. Although we like the texture of the tofu, we thought the sweet sauce made the dish a little strange for an appetiser.

The dish costs $15++, which is fairly reasonable and comparable to most tze char prices!

I don’t usually order noodles like these because they’re often a bit too sweet for me, but my parents are fans. They enjoyed this version quite a bit! There wasn’t much ingredients included, mostly vegetables.

Went to the café beside to chill after a pottery class (not easy🥵) and was recommended the GINSENG AMERICANO ($8). it was sweetened with honey so it wasn’t bitter and the smell of ginseng was superrr aromatic. 11/10 would drink again!!

Not the best, but not bad in hitting a decent and balanced sourish savory flavour, with crunches from the strips of cucumbers and pineapples. You can choose the type of noodles you prefer. Portion here was huge!

Pleasantly surprised by the number of mushrooms there was in here, even though we ordered the small portion. Taste wise was decent and the amaranth was fresh, but thought that it was slightly too bitter from the big amount of dang gui used.

Super addictive! These mushrooms were fried to a great crunch, not oily at all and coated in a sweet and slightly spicy cream sauce. Similar to the other dishes, we ordered the small portion and it was pretty substantial!

Didn’t leave with a good impression the first time we tried D’life, but happy that this time’s experience changed that.

Went straight for the Bak Kut Teh as I was craving a comforting soup, and this checked the box. It had a distinct herbal flavour and seasoned just nice with the right amount of savory and sweet. You get a mix of different mushrooms (like enoki and lion’s mane mushrooms), bean curd skin and tofu. This was the small portion, but pretty substantial I would say. Would get this again next time, and will try asking if it’s possible to add extra noodles in - could see this work as a main on its own too 😂

the soup could have been richer and nuttier! i got the thunder tea beehoon ($5.30 - regular) and as much as i prefer noodles>rice, i think i still prefer rice for my leicha as it soaks up the soup better. but i do like that this didn’t feel oily!
