Claypot Rice [$15] Back again after the failed trip last round when they were closed and so glad that we made a call an hour earlier to reserve a pot! Friend was hungry so we went for the $15 pot, but the $10 portion should suffice for 2. Loved the char you get in these pots painstakingly cooked over charcoal fire! Rice was done well (had the kind of bite I like) and the chunks of well marinated chicken were pleasantly tender, so were the lap cheong and yun cheong which were some of the better ones we’ve had. Haven’t had that much rice in a long time - I lost count of the number of bowls I had but part of the motivation was also for the surprise bits of salted fish! Felt as if everyone was there only for the claypot, so you can imagine just how long the queue can get. We overheard someone being told that the waiting time was an hour and fifteen minutes at about 7.30pm, so please drop them a call before going down!

Never before have I had such consistency with the "Claypot hei" and salted fish permeating through the entire pot after the mix. @spiritually_senget mixing it up with the 2017 Michelin Bib Gourmand entrant, New Lucky Claypot. Who needs to talk about the dish when it is made awesome by the deft skills of a Claypot Rice artist; truly a hidden talent.

Michelin Bib Gourmand Claypot Rice. Their claypot dishes are cooked using the traditional method over charcoal fire, resulting in a long waiting time. However, this results in a very distinctive flavour profile. I found the lup cheong particularly tasty without being tough or dry, specially supplied by a shop in Chinatown. The chicken pieces were also well marinated, had a smoky flavour, without being too bony. Do reserve before going down otherwise the wait will be very Long! #DFDMichelin #DFDHawker http://danielfooddiary.com/2017/06/25/newluckyclaypotrice/

Fish Steamboat ($22)- Small So on a rare, cool evening, we capitalised on the opportunity to get some fish steamboat for an early dinner. I loved that there was a wide variety of ingredients– vegetables, seaweed and yam and a generous portion of fish. The latter was really fresh and lent its sweetness to the soup, which was nice and light. You can also choose to have your hotpot without the fish head, which was what we did! We easily finished the soup, but did feel thirsty afterwards (even though we ordered drinks as well). Be sure to come early because they get packed really fast. Everyone in the party must be present before they'll serve you, which is understandable considering how busy they can get, even on a weekday.

Weather was hot but cooled down in time for us to enjoy this steaming hot fish head hotpot. The dishes here were old school and remarkably tasty. The fish head soup was full of flavours and everything inside was just on point, especially the fried yam that I absolutely loved. Chilli crab sauce giant prawns with tofu was a dish you'd find on most tables b'cos the sauce was just Yum. Their oyster fried egg definitely shouted fresh plump oysters that all oyster lovers would crave for. And the fried egg was really airy, fluffy and crispy in the right places. So much more to order here but we would have to come back with more kakis to try them all.

Traditional Steamboat With Pomfret (Medium: $35) Who cares if their receptacles are battered and wonky. What's boiling away in the delicious soup is all that matters. For my parents and I, it's got to be the white pomfret. The cut-up pieces of the fish are cooked with the standard sliced yam, vegetables, seaweed and "ti po" (dried flat fish). We've been coming to "Tian Wai Tian Fishhead Steamboat" for as long as I can remember. And this place is always bustling from the moment they open at 5pm. To accommodate the crowds that stream in continually, tables are lined up along the five-footway of a few neighbouring shops. Even then, during peak hours, customers still have to hover around for one to be available.

Har Jeong Gai ($8) Remarkably crunchy and juicy chicken wings with a good dose of prawn paste flavour. This is another dish that's always on point here.

Frog Porridge Frog Leg 3pcs ($16, good for 3-5 if you order other dishes) and Plain Porridge (Small is $2, Big is $3). Found the frog leg gravy a little too salty; adding just a little bit was good enough, but if you add another piece of frog halfway through your porridge, it ruins the balance of saltiness pretty easily :( Aside from that, love the combination of smooth porridge and tender frog legs with the ginger//spring onion gravy. (Ps if you never tried frog, the meat is like chicken, just much more tender. Though the mini bones will remind you that it's frog you're eating)

Stingray ($10-18) Favourite sambal stingray because the meat seems thicker and pretty tender compared to some others I've tried (where the layer of chili is almost as thick as the layer of meat below...)

Petai + Lady Finger + Long Bean ($8) Aside from the typical zichar veg dishes like kangkong and sweet potato leaves, they have this random combo where you can choose to mix from these three vegetables (e.g. Have them alone, mix two, or mix three). Petai (aka smelly bean 臭豆) is smelly as hell when you put it in your mouth. One of those things the older generation likes and you might suddenly grow to love as well when age catches up. Thankfully the stink did not affect the lady finger and long bean, which were decently good. You can choose to have it with sambal, or non-spicy with garlic. Go with the non-spicy to save yourself from the must-order sambal stingray.

Cai Po Omelette ($5) This came with the sides of the omelette overflowing from the plate! Good for $5, but wished that there were more liao in the omelette for some variety in the bite.

Salted Cream Sauce Had a salted cream sauce crab @WestCozCafe - yew tee point with a group of food hunters. Is that the only dish we had, of course not... this is one dish that need to be shared with all crab lovers. Creamy and buttery with a touch of salted egg yolk indeed brings up your appetite. Yes! I got the last "gong" <claw>.Give it a try if you are somewhere near by.

For Pocket-Friendly Curry Fish Head Longtime fans of the West Coz Cafe in West Coast Plaza — rejoice! The restaurant has opened a second outlet conveniently located in Yew Tee Point, making it a great zi char option for family meals on the weekends, or for a hearty meal with friends. If you're coming in a group of four or more, opt for the Set Menu B ($73.80) — you get to pick one fish, meat, seafood, vegetable and side dish from the selected items. Rice and drinks are included as well. The popular Curry Fish Head ($16 for small, $19 for large) is a hit amongst the customers, but the Assam Curry Fish Head ($16 for small, $19 for large) is even tastier. You'll be mopping up every bit of the spicy and tangy sauce with your rice! Avg Price: $20 per person *Halal-certified Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon

Curry Fish Head Read raving reviews of the curry fish head from West Coz... But this was disappointing. :( the fish head had very very little meat, and was extremely fishy! The curry was really delicious but even the strong spices couldn't mask the nauseating fishiness. :(

For Simple Tze Char A much smaller crowd compared to the outlet at west coast plaza but the food is equally good! Four dishes including a curry fish head for a group of 5 cost around 60 bucks without drinks.

Old Tiong Bahru Bah Kut Teh ($79) for 6 pax... although it's 37.5 deg .. but when in Tiong Bahru.. it's a must eat 😬 in between breaking sweats .. we were slurping up the unlimited soup and enjoying the savoury braised pork.. #burpple #weekendishere #foodiesunite #whileimwaitingfortheloml #lomljnck #lomljns

Old Tiong Bahru Bah Kut Teh Old Tiong Bahru Bah Kut Teh (~$15/pax) Though the ribs here were not as meaty as the other usual suspects like Songfa, the soup was very brothy but not overly peppery and full of flavour from the pork ribs. The other dishes like their minced pork omelette and braised large intestines were also awesome! Nothing like a hearty meal good for large groups. Do note that there's no airconditioning here so best pick a less sunny day for this!

排骨($8.50) Should have had this in this weather instead (it was scorching hot yesterday), but good BKT is good BKT! The broth at Old Tiong Bahru BKT is rich and tasty with that very slight oiliness. What I loved was that it wasn't too peppery and really easy to keep slurping down. But the best part was that every dish here was great too. Minced meat omelette, braised trotters and large intestines were all must-orders. (Make sure you return the wet towels, it's 60c per piece! Thanks Veronica for the pro tip on Burpple 😉)

The somewhat overpriced Bak Ku Teh ($6.50 for 3 pcs of 龙骨). Tasted pretty decent but the price can be quite astonishing after all the add on. Finally complete the first official event with the new portfolio, after days of waking up at 7AM 😩 Let's rock for the new FY 💪

Greek Yoghurt With Honey & Walnut We were FULL after our meal but was convinced by the bartender that this is one dessert we shouldn't miss. We were glad we didn't. It was great! Thick and smooth Greek yogurt combined with Greek honey which is tasty but not too sweet is a dessert worth tucking into the little space of the full tummy. Yummy yummy yum yum yum!

Horiatiki (Greek Salad) Came here on a Wednesday 6 pm without reservation and almost couldn't get in. By 730 pm the place was packed. This salad recommended by the serving staff is great. It's just cucumbers, green pepper and onion with olive oil and a big piece of feta cheese. Look really deceiving. The more I ate the more I wanted to. Greek food is really Greek to me but I will be back for more. Yummy yummy yum yum

New Post- Checked out latest Greek kid on the block @bakalakigreektaverna hoping that I'll find my fav joint. Verdict? Find out on the blog, link in bio. The Spanakopita had a great texture and was packed with spinach, feta, and way too much dill. And these 2 triangles were $16.

Who would pay $20.90 for a hella basic Greek salad? • But check out that slab of feta cheese! Unlike many places that cube or even worse, crumble the cheese the good folks at Bakalaki serve it whole. And what a difference that makes in terms of presentation and taste as you get full control how much you want in your serving. • The salad was refreshing and was perfect at whetting the appetite. They were liberal with the lashings of olive oil; fruity and fragrant. The best part is that you can even buy the oil home. Definitely my salad of choice.

My all time favourite sizzles! Although there is many mookata buffet around, this is one of the first pioneer ala carte ones i've tried. Eat where the thais eat in sg at this little thailand at Golden Mile Complex. The meats are marinated and somehow the golden pot makes the food extra yummy! Damage: $50/platter for 2 including drinks.

Bye long weekends. End up with #mookata dinner unplanned at #goldenmile ... $45 for the 2 person set at good portion, we realise key to best mookata is their homemade sauce. Milk tea only at $1.50 per cup. Dessert was at #tiongbahru plaza, which is partially open now. #nicedaydessert this sweet potatoes flavor ($9.80) come with too much shave ice & not enough taste, had to ask for more syrup even after removing some ice, coconut ice cream was okay.. their egglets also need improvement, should taste hk egglet shop and learn. #shiok #sgfood #burpple

Average Mookata The meat here are quite well marinated. Prawns are already deshelled so less hassle eating it. The set shown here cost $45, which I think is a little steep considering the portion and quality. The msg laden soup was quite disappointing, but goes well with the glass noodles. Chilli here is the highlight, and I think they know it too, providing each guest with half a bowl of the garlicky sweet spicy goodness. Thai milk tea was just decent, can do with more spices.

Garlic Fried Pork Belly One of the recommended dishes at Malu Malu seafood. Pretty big plate for us 2 girls. On the first bite I was quite doubtful of how nice it could taste, felt like the taste of garlic was overpowering. As I took the subsequent pieces, I realised that it was actually the aroma of the garlic that complemented well with the crispy but pure 'oily' taste of the fried pork belly, giving it a delightful taste. Pretty unique dish! I couldn't stop eating the whole garlic eventually. #BurppleMajulahMakan

Signature fried bee hoon When I first read about this signature fried bee hoon by a fellow burppler, I knew I had to try it. This chao tar bee hoon looked as though it was calling out to me even through the pictures! Be prepared to travel to the ulu industrial place for it though. For $5, it was really worth it for this portion given, and the ingredients hidden under the disguise of the egg and bee hoon. Also in it were lots of bean sprouts, fish cakes, prawns and sotongs. Guess the slightly chao tar portions added a distinct flavor and crispiness to it too!

fish head bee hoon as an amateur food blogger it seems like i am discrediting myself if i keep featuring a particular stall, but what if the food is REALLY that good? this fish head bee hoon ($5) is something special. soup is SUPER tasty with the creaminess from the milk, saltiness and sourness from the salted vegetables and tomatoes, and just to top it off some alcohol too (pretty sure it's Benedictine Dom, that taste is unique) the generous servings of fish head meat are not overly cooked. no wonder this is one of their best sellers. if you like fish soup/bee hoon you HAVE to try this. 5/5
