Vanilla Hotcakes, Coconut Butter, Berry Compote They weren't kidding when they said this was a huge portion. Each of the FIVE hotcakes were fluffy and super light. One of the better pancakes out there. But even so, definitely not something most people would be able to finish on their own...

Corn Fritters, Poached Eggs, Bacon, Jalapeño Jan Well they said casual modern Australian - and indeed once I stepped in its vibes reminded me of Kettle Black in Melbourne. Wasn't too impressed with the fact that they had confirmed our reservations by phone but somehow hadn't written it down (?!) Other than that, service was pretty good. These corn fritters were excellent, and the poached eggs were seriously on point - firm but super wobbly with liquid yolks. Highly recommended.

Vanilla hot cakes ($19). Happy Easter! Throw back to these fluffy hot cakes I had with some foodies past few weekend. They are served with coconut butter and berry compote, but only available on weekends as part of the weekend brunch menu. 🔸 I enjoy cutting through all 5 layers of the hotcakes at once to savour the layered textures, then be surprised by how fluffy and bouncy this is. 🔸 Taste wise, it could be underwhelming for those seeking a more complex mix in flavours. It's also a tad pricey compared to the other dishes on the weekend brunch. #brunch #pancakes #hotcakes #happyeaster #breakfast #cafehopping

Long You Long Time "Lala" [$10.90]. . One of the latest additions to their seafood menu which features claypot conch steamed with lemongrass. . Seafood lovers will like how the subtle sweetness of the lala blends with lemongrass to give a refreshing sweet note. But for my case, I usually prefer the "zhup" more than the clams. 😂

For Delicious Vietnamese Fare on Rangoon Road Neighbours to Lai Huat Seafood and just steps away from Non Entree Dessert Cafe, this chic space comes decorated with metal tables, neon lighting and graffiti walls — a great spot to visit the next time you and your friends are craving good Vietnamese food. Unlike Mrs Pho (its sister outlet on Beach Road that specialises in noodles), this eatery focuses on dishes meant for sharing. Excite your tastebuds with the No Star Where Salat ($7.90), a less commonly seen salad made with starfruit and tender slices of beef tossed in a sweet, spicy and tangy sauce. Also share the Mrs Pho Cockles ($10.90), a simple but delicious claypot of cockles stir-fried in garlic and pork lard, as well as the Con Heo Chop ($9.90), two perfectly grilled slabs of tender pork chops. Have it with the excellent homemade chili that takes everything to another level! Wash it all down with a cup of Viet Coffee with Condensed Milk ($4.50) at the end of your meal. Pro tip: Reserve one of the two round tables available if you're coming in a group of six to eight — it's partitioned off by beaded curtains, making it more intimate. Avg Price: $20 per person Photo by Burppler Hilary See

Grilled Pork Chop Pork chop + rice + star fruit salad = bliss 😍 These unassuming pork chops totally surpassed my expectations. Flavourful, well smoked, tender strips of pork, seriously satisfying stuff. I'm quite certain this will be a hit with the guys. 💪🏻 Typically served together with the bone in Vietnam, you can request for them to snip away the bone and have it in smaller cuts — it's easier to eat it this way. Oh be sure to dip the pork slices in their homemade chili served on the side — shiokkkk! #Burpproved

Banh Xeo From Mrs Pho House at 221 Rangoon Road, started by the same people who founded Mrs Pho at Beach Road — the new branch takes a focus on mains and seafood (think communal dining plates like tze-char with Vietnamese fare) rather than their signature Pho, though there are still 3 Pho options on the menu here. Banh Xeo is a Vietnamese Crepe dish; a fusion of an omelette and pancake in one — expect a largely eggy omelette, crisp on edges with a light and thin batter within. Inside, the omelette comes with a lot of goodies such as meat, prawn, beansprouts and comes with coriander, lettuce and chili with a chili dip on the side. To eat it the correct way, nib off a little bit of the pancake, wrap it within the lettuce together with some coriander and dip it in the tangy chili sauce (alternatively, if you are like me just stack them altogether). It's a simple medley of common ingredients that are clean-tasting yet flavourful in their own right, with loads of texture within. A little strange that the variant here doesn't come with mint leaves though, which is usually served elsewhere together with the other greens at the side.

Look at that beautiful array of colors! One thing that ootoya can be counted upon is really fresh fish on their bara chirashi that satisfies the palate every time 🙃

Charcoal Grilled Atka Mackerel (A La Carte: $17.50++ / Set Meal: $22.50++) If you like your fish to come off the bone easily in chunky flakes, the Hokke here is a must-order. To help refresh the palate as you feast on this grilled fish, a bowl of finely-grated Japanese radish and a small side dish of sweetish seaweed are served together with it. I recommend getting this as a set meal because for $5++ more, you are given a bowl of rice, miso soup, pickles, appetiser and chawanmushi. What I find most impressive though is how Ootoya has managed to maintain their standard all this time. We had stepped in to the Orchard Central outlet for an early dinner recently, after not having eaten there in years, and experienced service and food quality that's exactly like when the restaurant first opened in Singapore. Amazing. Oh, and apart from us, every customer in there was Japanese. Which says a lot about its authenticity, don't you agree? 😊

A Chirashi Don That's Healthier As much as I like the Barachirashi from Teppei, it's refreshing to have a very much lighter seasoned version of the popular raw fish over rice once in a while. Yes, the cubes of sashimi weren't as large as Teppei's and the ikura was a touch less firm than what I'd prefer but overall, this was pretty decent. You can also order it as a set meal which gets you a bowl of miso soup and a petite but very good chawanmushi.

Hokke Set The Hokke Set was plastered in huge print on their menu, so we thought it would be one of their specialties! It was good indeed. The fish meat was so tender and well-marinated, each bite was oozing with juiciness. Love how they provided sides, like beans and spinach and pickled vegetables, to whet your appetite. Another point worth mentioning is their Chawanmushi, which came in a very small portion but was honestly one of the best I've eaten (I do eat at lots of Japanese restaurants, so that's saying something). It's extremely smooth and has this sweetness which was very tasty! Located at Level 8 of Orchard Central, this restaurant is surpringly not very crowded. The staff are really nice too!

Sunday Dinner Date after spending a total of 15 minutes in a bridal studio 😂. 🍴 At $32.90 for a 190 gram steak, I was quite surprised to be served complimentary Rosé wine! Which gave a nice touch. When my plate came, I thought it was quite a decent amount for me but mind you this is actually only around 100g of the 190g. They serve you your remaining half way through your meal. Guess it's a nice way to pace your eating. My steak was done just right medium rare and the herbed garlic sauce is really quite good! Fries are free flow and oh so addictive 🤤 @timchee complaint that his beef was more like medium rather than medium rare, but his beef was a bigger slab at 300g. For $49.90 it's quite good alr la. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #burpple #steaks #cheapsteak #sundate

Steak frites. One of the more interesting steak frites in Singapore. It comes served with a special sauce that's rumoured to be made with chicken livers and cream. The steak was cooked to perfection, a nice medium rare. Free flow of fries are available here. The fries are good for mopping up the sauce too. All in all, it was a good steak with or without the sauce.

Trimmed Entrecôte Steak With French Fries And Walnut Salad They slice the steak for you, for easy dining. Once you're done with the first round, they will serve the rest of the steak. You can ask them to set the gravy aside in a bowl. Personally I prefer my steak to not be drenched in gravy, but this is not too bad, though at times overpowering. Still, it's steak and they did it just right (I asked for medium rare), so, yum. The fries are refillable and addictive. Didn't touch much of the salad as I'd wanted to focus on the steak. $32.90 and 3.8/5 #steak #lentrecote

L'Entrecote Duck Rillettes Crunchy picked gherkins and grilled buttered sourdough from Do.Main. I didn't know what to expect, actually. 😂 It was my first time having this and the duck rillette was very flavourful and tasty. Sourdough was hard and crunchy, complemented the duck. $18 and 3.7/5

Bopis ($5.50) While sisig is generally a more common Filipino dish, the bopis here is executed wayyy better. The beef lung and heart pieces were perfectly cooked in a savoury, tomato-ey stew with just the right amount of heat. Super moreish and definitely more value-for-money than the sisig.

Chopped Lechon (Roasted Pig, from $8.50) So glad to have a reliable place in the east to go to when the craving for lechon hits! Though only open for dinner, you're sure to get freshly charcoal spit-roasted hog with tender meat, melt-in-the-mouth layers of fat and superbly crisped up skin! 😍 Not too heavy-handed on the seasoning either. Skip the sweet liver sauce and go for the vinegar dip infused with garlic and black pepper to scythe through that richness instead. You can add chopped bird's eye chillies too, if you want an extra zing.

Chopped Lechon This was the highlight of our meal. Tender, juicy meat with a glistening layer of fats and topped off with the crispiest skin. You know it's good when you hear a (very) satisfying crunch as you bite into it. Best eaten with white rice and I can imagine, an icy cold beer (which isn't sold here, but Kris the owner recommends buying some/getting from the bar a few doors away).

Chopped Lechon🐷 ($38/kg) Had an introduction to Filipino Food 101 with Muriel the other day, and man, I didn't know what I've been missing out on! This lechon (a roasted, suckling pig) from Don Lechon was so shiok, we ordered another kilo to munch on! Perfect crispy crackling to go with amazingly tender meat... Dip it into the vinegar sauce to cut through all that meatiness and you're good to go! (ours was great but a colleague who tried it on another day said hers was tougher, so consistency might be an issue)

Bruno's bistrot French/Italian fare Absolutely ❤ pasta's, my idea of comfort food! 😁 Enjoyed myself at this cozy little French/Italian restaurant arnd Siglap area! Does not have WOW-factor but it's simple, good & authentic, flavours has depth without being too salty. Do ask for their tablet picture menu as some dishes are not in the menu book. 🍝 Rating: 7.8/10 🍝 Will i return/recommend: Yes/Yes 🍝 Pros: Really gd service here 👍💗 Serving well-paced. Relaxing unpretentious place, homely feel. Humongous generous portions. Tastes very authentic - if it helps, over 50% of diners were Italians too. Crab meat pasta has an awesome "smokey burnt" flavour & a good splashing of white wine ❤ Seafood in risotto was huge 😊 Glad they served burratina 125gm - just nice for 2 🍝 Cons: Food a tad bit pricier compared to similar "neighbourhood" mid-tier places & not the best in that range. Understaffed. 🍝 Price: S$84.21 (2pax, too much food! Packed half the risotto; didn't finish bread)

Linguine Con Capesante $28.4 Bruno's is one of those unassumingly charming neighbourhood eateries that's been around for years and mostly frequented by locals who value the convenience of seriously decent grub right at their doorstep. With a focus on Italian food, their portions are generous, and my pasta came with four large pan-seared scallops. As it is, they were slightly pale, chewy and would have benefitted from just a minute or two more in the pan for that much desired caramelization. What I really enjoyed was the al-dente linguine in a mellow pink sauce(tomato and cream) perfumed with garlic, onion, basil, soft cherry tomato and sun-dried tomato. Bruno's original outlet at Tanjong Katong has a more formal restaurant-like setting and is also worth checking out. Taste: 3.5/5

Caramelized Onion Pie w/ Goat Cheese $17 Flaky puff pastry holding sweet and soft caramelized onion, which they could have been more generous with for the price I'm paying really. The crumbled goat's cheese was wonderfully mild and just so slightly tangy, pairing beautifully with the rich onion jam. Taste: 3/5

Burrata With Parma Ham I love random bistrot in the east. That run-down, homely vibes of the east is a charmer. We had their special, burrata with Parma ham. I'm siting on the fence in this burrata. It's very milky, almost like drinking milk. It's too "runny" for my taste, I still like my burrata, while it's soft, firm in texture. The tomato coated bread is an overkill. But the rocket salad on the side is surprisingly relish, with a slight spicy garlicky dressing. The choice of Parma ham bought by them, isn't my favourite. But great size for sharing.

Thai Wonton Mee If you are missing the usual Thailand wonton mee fix, you can get it now right at the Bugis downtown line exit's tan quee lan street. Pretty pricey bowl of noodles, but it was guaranteed to be of quality. It is a little saltier than those found in Bangkok but their noodles were so much better!

Good Thai Noodles With a reasonably priced menu, KinMoo offers a fair variety of Thai noodles and rice dishes. Hence, after much deliberation we got the BaaMee Haeng Tom Yum (Tom Yum Noodle Dry, $7.50) and BaaMee Keow Haeng Moo Dang (Wonton Noodle Dry, $6.90). Having no idea on the authenticity, I really enjoyed my bowl of dry wonton noodles and the bowl of radish soup that came together. Served with springy chewy noodles, plump dumplings, lean slices of tender pork and topped with a generous amount of fried condiments; do remember to give everything a good mix before inhaling the noodles. Tossing the noodles, the fragrance from the fried garlic as well as shallots were able to coat the strands and while I usually remove the pork lard, the addition really enhanced the dish and I ended up finishing all the crunchy bits. Furthermore, to complete the setup, order a comforting bowl of Kow Lao Moo (Mixed Pork Soup, $8.90). Similar to the radish soup mentioned before, their Mixed Pork Soup was light yet flavourful with the defined sweetness from the pork and radish - perfect to add into the dry noodles.

Wonderful Wonton Ordered the tom yum dry noodles, wonton dry noodles, Thai iced milk tea and deep fried chicken wings. Total bill $27.61. I requested to have the internal organs excluded. Iced milk tea was very sweet! I recoiled with horror after one sip and decided that I would tackle it after eating. Hopefully the ice would have melted enough to make it palatable. I ordered it cos almost every table had at least one... Suahku me has never heard of Thai boat noodles and apparently this was it. My tom yum arrived first. I wait for hubby's wonton noodles to arrive before eating cos that's the polite thing to do. Ok I lied. I only wanted to take pics. The chicken arrived and still no wonton noodles. When it finally came, my tom yum had dried to a hard ball. So I used the soup to wet it. Had to mix for a long time. But I must say the addition of the spicy soup added fire to the already spicy noodles. I really liked the soup. The fried wonton skin was only fried skin and not fried wonton like I thot. They added quite a lot of fried pork lard in the noodles. I have never refused lard and never will! So crunchy and added lots of flavor to the noodles! I'm a tom yum fan but this time my vote went to the wonton noodles. The wontons were flavorful and the char siew was tender. Made me wanna order wonton soup and extra char siew. I hope they include them in their menu next time! Chicken was delicious as only fried chicken could be. Paired with Thai chili sauce, it was delightful. I had a very satisfying meal. Bring tissue cos they don't provide. You will need it. I sure did. Oh and the milk tea? Kinda tasteless after the meal but at least not so sweet. I will skip it next time.

Just Different Just different from the wanton mees we usually eat at Hawker centres, this Thai styled is a close replica to the famous Soi19 at pratunam, Bkk. At sgd 6,90, I feel it's very reasonable as it is in an aircon, comfortable cafe setting😍 Vs that of bkk's sgd 4, it's almost as tasty and did not disappoint my major cravings since my last Bkk visit ! Must-try is also the braised pork rice. Totally enjoyed savouring these 2 dishes together, just like in bkk👏🏻, except over here, there's even a good Thai iced tea to go with the duo 💯 Thank u, Kin Moo🙏🏻

Steamed Egg In Claypot (Gyeran Jim) 계란찜 (Gyeran Jim) - Steamed egg in a hot claypot. This Korean-style steamed egg came bubbling towards us. When we scooped into its fluffiness, it was a smooth eggy flavour full with the sweetness from chicken broth. Never knew a simple steamed egg can be elevated this way by so much. 💫 Team lunch at this Korean outfit. The place is crowded at lunchtime, so be sure to reserve. Pretty decent, authentic Korean.

Quite Worth It For Its Price I am rather a big eater, so at first I thought ordering 3 items wouldn't be enough. I ordered the pancake, chicken bulgogi and bibimbap. The price of the chicken bulgogi was $22.80, but there is a 17% discount promotion during dinner for certain chicken dishes and bulgogi was one of them. I almost couldn't finish my food as the amount was quite alot. I find the food quite tasty despite reading some not so good reviews online. For its price I would say it is quite Worth it. I would probably come back again to try other items on the menu or the bbq. 1 thing I think they could improve is to increase the number of side dishes.

Filling meal Between the two of us, we ordered kimchi soup, chicken bulgogi and Pajoen. The Pajoen ($14.80) that we ordered is really delicious! It was chewy and crispy and the accompanying sauce was tangy. It is slightly oily though but that didn't stop me from eating piece after piece. I would not recommend the chicken bulgogi unless ib groups of 3 or 4 as the dish had very strong flavours (mainly sweet tasting) and it felt very overpowering after a few bites. But overall, it was great and we both felt very full after the meal.
