Premium Chirashi Don Very pretty bowl of relatively thick sashimi slices. We felt that the sashimi were fresh, and were pleasantly surprised to taste a hint of truffle on the salmon belly. Quite a decent chirashi don, would recommend it if you are in the area and need a sashimi fix.

Be prepared to either spend, or leave hungry This @fukusenrestaurant was really quite a "saga" 😂 Made reservation last week & went down only to realise they were out of uni. So we left, asking to make another reservation for today - they were so nice abt it, guaranteeing to reserve uni for us. Lo & behold, when we went, they did not bother to put our reservations down 😒 Won't u at least pretend u did?? 🐳 Rating: 6.8/10 🐳 Will i return/recommend: Yes/No 🐳 Pros: Cosy interior. Polite staffs. Hotate, foie gras don was yummy! Rice was delicious. Fresh tasting sashimi. Creamy uni. 🐳 Cons: Long wait. Sooooo thinly sliced & low grade quality. Uni & ikura was bitter. Uni don very bland when paired with rice. Each bowl supposedly enough for 1, but it's too little. Not value-for-money, left feeling half-full & unsatisfied. 🐳 Price: S$86.63

Umi Don . | Insanely amount of umi. Vision impact 💯 but taste only 50. Lacking of depth of flavors. After removing all the "decorations", the umi was not as many as what it seem.

Ebi Don with additional roe . | Do take note that we added the extra roe and marinated egg. Among the three that I had, this was my favorite. The freshness and sweetness of all the ingredients worked in harmony. Every mouth was filled with the comfort of the sea. 😋😋😋

[Gyoza-Ya at Robinsons Orchard @ The Heeren, B1] ❤️ this place 'cos they don’t just serve conventional gyozas but special ones too like Pan-Fried Dumplings with Mentaiko Miso or Cheese. . The Ninniku Yaki Meshi or Japanese Garlic Fried Rice is another must-try. It may look like an ordinary fried rice but it really blows me away with its intense wok hei flavour. . The Special Pork Bone Soup with Ramen has a very flavoursome broth. Noodles are very springy too. And the thickly sliced braised pork belly is so soft and tender – it really reminds me of those Teochew-style braised pork belly. 😋

Gyoza Ya Their main highlight would be the different types of gyoza they offer, enticing customers with the attractive appearance of pan fried dumplings with mentaiko/ cheese ? One of the unique menu items would be their jya jya men in which there would be several steps to follow (add vinegar/Chilli oil) and when you are just going to polish the bowl, rmb to save some noodles for the soup version when egg& stock is added! Two different styles to enjoy your jya jya men, however it tasted like Chinese style for the dry one. Soooo try out if you're interested in the soup version of jya jya men.

Gyoza-ya As many reviewed about this place/ restaurant that served mostly Gyoza, finally decided to give it a try because what could go wrong under the gyoza skin? Definitely a must to try the Takoyaki as well as the Mentaiko Gyoza. However, if gyoza isn't your style, you can try their Jya Jya Men (Like korean's jjajameon) or their udon where it is served solely for one person. Absolute love the garlic fried rice because it was really flavourful and goes well with the udon soup. They also have an interesting way of eating the jyajyamen where instructions can be found on the table. Remember to request for a half boil egg and hot water from the waitress. Not a bad place to give it a try! Easily spotted at B1 of The Heeran (Robinsons), just opposite Marks & Spencer 👍🏻👍🏻 not crazy expensive either & also not a bad place to snack😌

Mee Goreng If you think it's just a Mee Goreng, indeed it is but not an ordinary plate of noodle. Their chilli is one of a kind. With the wok 'hei' and their unselfish quantity serving , plus their affordable pricing indeed it is worth to spread the news out. A place to dine with friends and family for any occasion. I will say they have their style. Feels like home.

Curry Fish Head Went there to have a meal with my family. Curry Fish Head is a must. Wasted they sold out their sambal petai with mince chicken. Otherwise with both dishes side by side, I'll be damn! Their curry gravy is pretty light and you can even drink it till the last drop. Too many dishes to share but Fish Head is a must to share. Definitely heading back to try the rest. Situated at 19 sims way, park at the multi carpark (turn in from Geylang Lorong 3) and it's just beside. Very convenient. Interesting they don't charge service charges and GST. It's a great place for gathering.

Hongkong Steam Fish Hongkong Steam Fish has been Chinese traditional dish for many auspicious event like Wedding events. This dish requires the fish to be fresh and usually Chef loves to serve it using Soon Hock. In this restaurant, this dish is serve fresh and without pork and lard, you can really taste the fine touch of a Cantonese Cuisine.

Took A Pizza My Heart Went for the classic Margherita ($27) and watched the chefs kneaded, build and fire my pizza from the bar seats. Good charred crust, tangy tomato base and fresh basil leaves. Melted mozzarella gave a hint of creaminess to the overall richness. Old is gold 😌

Pizza Hopping Part 2 One of my favourite places, Pizzeria Mozza. Not traditional by any stretch but utterly delicious. Had a nice time at the bar counter watching the pizzaiolas at work. As my friend likes to say, the cornicione (crust) at Mozza is a work of art, with an extremely puffed and hollow interior and crispy exterior. Good flavor too. Left - Pizza Aglio Olio White pizza with garlicky flavors that someone does not overwhelm. Nice robust flavors that are rich yet balanced, with the mozzarella and fontina cheeses accentuated by a hint of chili spice. Right - Brussels Sprouts Pizza White pizza that is intensely delicious with the porky and crispy guanciale bacon perfectly complemented by the thinly sliced brussel sprouts. Quite perfect. #burpple

Fresh Goat Cheese pizza 🍕 ($30++) with leeks, scallions, garlic and bacon. The goat's cheese caught my eye, though I wouldn't usually eat leek and scallions. The leek and scallions have lost some of their taste to the generous amounts of olive oil (phew), but still provided good texture to the pizza and balancing out the heavier-tasting goat's cheese. The pizza crust itself was amazing - very thin where the ingredients were placed over, and toasty and SUPER crispy on the sides. I think I can actually finish the entire pizza on my own as the pizza was really thin and light, and not too big as well, about 9". I would totally come back to try all their other pizzas!

Calamari Al Forno ($18++) The calamari here isn't the usual crunchy, batter-coated variety. Instead, they serve theirs grilled with olive oil and fresh oregano. Springy in texture, not rubbery thankfully, the skewered squid comes on a small pile of fagioli, which is a classic Italian dish of pasta stewed with beans. I didn't find any pasta in my plate though, just two kinds of pale coloured beans. Can't say I was crazy about them but generally, beans don't excite me much. Sorry beans.

Chirashi Set I love how underrated Manzoku is, especially when it comes to their Chirashi Set! There's just something about the thick, fresh slices of salmon, tuna, swordfish, and amberjack sashimi laid out in abundance atop perfectly cooked Japanese rice that makes you want dig into it immediately! Bitting into the lightly-golden tamago bars are a welcoming respite from the ocean of flavours, and we haven't even gotten to the generous dollop of Ikura pearls yet! $25 may be a hefty price tag to many, but for this gargantuan bowl? Trust me - it's worth it. #BurppleSushiMonth #burpple

Chirashi Don 4.5 munchies: One of the two places I go to for excellent chirashi don (the other being Chikuwatei by the same Yoi Group), I absolutely loved how thick and fresh the slices of salmon, tuna, swordfish, and amberjack were. Special mention is given to the swordfish for its meatiness and juiciness. The rice was beautifully seasoned with the distinct flavour of vinegar. It also comes with two slices of sweet, moist tamagoyaki and loads of ikura topping! #Burpproved

Fat Prince Hummus Not sure how the duck fat added any value to the dish, pretty decent but quite normal overall

Feel the Royal Treatment I came here with a friend on a whim, and realised how underdressed I was in my shorts and slippers when I opened the door… It wasn’t like any of the casual Middle Eastern eateries in Arab Street area, but many times more chi-chi and sophisticated. Majority of the patrons were in smart casual attire at the very least, until I showed up oops. Nevertheless, the staff were still welcoming, especially the charming bartender who was very conversational. : It was recommended that we order two mezzes, a salad, and four kebabs to share between the two of us, but we cut back on one mezze as we were afraid of overeating, plus we wanted space for cocktails >D : You can’t go wrong starting a meal with hummus and crispy thin crackers, especially with a hummus so smooth. Don’t be alarmed by the use of duck fat - not only is it tasty, but it’s also a healthy alternative to butter. The quinoa tabbouleh, a seemingly simple salad mix of red quinoa, pomegranate, tomatoes, mint, parsley, was a refreshing palate cleanser. Go back to it every time before you start biting on the next kebab! : The kebabs are not the ones on sticks, but wrapped in pita bread like tacos. I like the Sweet Chili and & Oregano Lamb Kofte and Spicy Adalar Prawn for their aggressively-seasoned meats and fiery spices, while my friend preferred the Halloumi Cheese. These were served with three accompanying condiments, a spicy tangy sauce similar to tabasco, a yogurt that I think is tzatziki, and a small jar of tiny chopped-up jalapeños, which was fantastic to eat with the salad! We emptied that jar =D : Most awesome part about this place? They donate part of their earnings to Action Against Hunger, a global charity that tries to help malnourished children. And they charge only $1 for unlimited still or sparkling water as they use a sustainable water filtration system - I definitely do not mind paying a wee bit more for environmental causes! All hail the jolly Fat Prince!

For a Fun Middle Eastern Brunch By the team behind funky izakaya Neon Pigeon comes this Middle Eastern joint oozing hipster pizzazz. Prepare your taste buds to go on a journey of Middle Eastern spices and flavours — think kebabs, falafels and everything in between. Start with the Fat Prince Hummus ($11), which sees blended chickpeas enlivened with garlic, lemon juice and duck fat. Yes, you heard that right. Thankfully, the result is an extra creamy, unctuous dip begging that you repeatedly dip the side of spice-dusted crackers into. For mains, share the Beef Adana Kebab ($16) with a friend (portions are generous!). Expect flavourful minced beef adana chunks and harissa scrambled eggs, wrapped in pillowy pita. If it's your first visit, it might be worth splurging on the Pistachio Latte ($7) for the experience of tasting roasted pistachios in every sip. Avg Price: $25 per person Photo by Burppler Muriel A

Beef Adana Kebab ($16) One of the items I was most excited to try from the brunch menu here was their beef cheeks pide, but alas, it's no longer available and has been replaced by this wrap instead. Securely swaddled by a pillowy pita, the harissa scrambled eggs retained its moisture better (as compared to in the menemen). The minced beef adana chunks' marinade is spice-heavy 👌🏼 but with a much better restraint in salt. It may not look much, but it's defo very satisfying.

Lemon Tart ($6 nett) Luscious, zingy lemon custard on a crunchy base is the kind of dessert I'll never tire of. The caramelised surface of this one at @southunionpark added a fragrant, sweet crisp that made their version extra delightful. Only $6 nett for a large slice? Take my money already.

Tarte Flambé ($15) Available on weekends between 9am and 12noon as part of the new breakfast menu is this Tarte Flambé . This Alsatian-Mosellan and South German item (thank you google!) is similar to a pizza, but is more refined and lighter. The base is a thin, flaky crust which has an addictive crisp bite. Spread over it is an appetising sweet and savoury mix of cooked leek onions, roasted mushrooms, bacon and cheese. I think this is ideal for sharing as it comes sliced into 6 easy-to-eat squares. So if you are coming in a group, I suggest ordering a main dish each and getting this to split.

Gravlax Egg Toast ($16 nett) If you've found certain commercial brands of cured salmon too salty or strong tasting, you should try the cured salmon, or "gravlax" as it is called at @southunionpark. Its flavour profile is milder in comparison which I find really palatable. Also, Chef Terence and his team have used it to create one of the prettiest open-faced cold sandwiches I've seen in a while. On a thick slice of brioche is a freaking neat pile of finely-chopped egg dill mayo, and arranged on top of that are the cubes of cured fish with a few slices of housemade pickled cucumbers and red onions for extra punch. By the way, this visually arresting sandwich is only available for breakfast on weekends between 9am and 12noon. So in less than 9 hours from now, you can actually order one if you like 😊.

Friday Lunch Special: Cajun Chicken Bowl ($15 nett) The Cajun Chicken Bowl, available between 11.30am and 2pm on Fridays at South Union Park, has won me over with its delectable protein and carb combo. The team here always takes things up several notches (they make nearly everything from scratch!), so I knew even the rice would be special. And yup, this one here was cooked with garlic butter and small pieces of pineapple, and topped by a salsa of corn and red peppers. I am not exaggerating when I say it tasted as good as it looked. From chatting with Chef-owner Terence, I also learned that the chicken breast in this goes through a two-step cooking process in order to achieve that hard-to-find level of moistness, tenderness and flavour. Portion size was really generous as well, which made me regret wearing such a tight dress today 😂 If you plan on visiting South Union Park, do note the change in their opening hours. Best to check their Facebook page for details.
