Red Grouper Slices Delight espite the varying reviews on Shun Feng Crayfish Delight, the soup base was pretty satisfying to have especially on a rainy night like today. And weaving itself nicely into each spoonful, you really do get the umami flavours of the crustaceans used in the seafood broth. Creamy and pleasantly sweet, the one featured is the Red Grouper Slices Delight ($8) which has tomatoes, prawns, tofu, marinated meatballs (YES!) and a generous portion of tender sliced grouper - fresh and with none of that fishiness. Chock full of flavour (but not those overly rich kind), the bowls are cooked a la minute and you can see the guys in the stall tasting and adjusting as the warm soup simmers. Thus, overall I feel that they do take caution in ensuring the consistency. However, that also means that more time is needed; so bearing in mind the perpetually snaking queue, the offerings are not mind-blowingly scrumptious yet surprisingly comforting. All reasonably priced, please do order the Crystal Horfun as an add-on if you are there! Lavishly garnished with fried shallots and dosed in a delectable savory-sweet sauce, the kway teow just requires a good toss.Yum! *Though truly a decent find, it may not be worth more than a 30-minutes wait imho

Shun Feng Crayfish Delight Queued up 40 mins for this...but it sure did not disappoint. Had the crystal crayfish delight $6. The soup was so flavorful and had all the seafood goodness in it. Dory fish, meatballs and tofu were added to the soup as well. The kway teow noodles that came with the soup was tossed in sweet, savory sauce. Perfect combination!

Creating a new snaking queue is Shun Feng Crayfish Delight. As the owners, Daniel & Willy, cook every bowl of soup individually, expect to wait about 45 to 60 minutes to order! The sweetness of the broth differs with the ingredients! We had the Crystal Crayfish Delight ($6/$10), Mackerel Slices Delight ($7) & the Red Grouper Slices Delight ($7). Of the 3, the most flavorful bowl was the Mackerel Slices as the broth has the sweetness from the prawns & Mackerel without any fishy taste. The Crayfish broth was slightly lighter as compared to the mackerel, but at $10, you do get 2 whole juicy crayfishes sliced in half. The winner is actually what comes together with the soup, the crystal kwayteow that's tossed in this sweet, yet savoury sauce topped with deep fried shallots. • #BurppleYoungHawkers #Burpple #BurppleSG #BurppleTastemakers #ForeverHungry

Daniel and Willy makes every bowl of soup with delicate care by tasting and adjusting every single bowl they make. . 🍴 There's a different sweetness whether you get the mackerel or the crayfish. It is hard to say which is better, but of course get the crayfish for more value for money. Avoid mealtimes as you might have to wait up to an hour! . 🍴 The hor fun might look simple but was super tasty, like a silkier smoother version of Ipoh horfun. Slurp this down together with your soup for the best experience! . 🍴 On the other hand, one of the highlights for me was actually their meatballs. Tasty pork with umami-ness from mushrooms. 😋 An unexpected but awesome addition to a fish soup! . 🍴 #burpple #burppleyounghawkers #shunfengcrayfish #crayfish #sgfood

Housebalked Cakes I N V I T E D T A S T I N G If you close your eyes and take a bite of this Ondeh Ondeh Cake, the only thing that gives away the fact it isn't the actual "kueh" is the texture. In terms of aroma and flavour, it is amazingly and intensely spot-on. Joanna Fong, one of the co-owners of AEIOU, is the self-taught, in-house baker and the array of cakes she produces is impressive. I asked her a lot of questions about this because I found it irresistible - the moistness in particular, was a huge plus for me. She shared that it took many rounds of experimenting with different recipes to get it the way she wanted. Her drive to make her Ondeh Ondeh extra fragrant has her incorporating not one, not two but three kinds of coconut. When she revealed this nugget of info, I could only stare at her and nod in wonder as I stuffed my face on more cake.

Ondeh Ondeh & Black Sesame Cake Still on my search of finding good cakes, and decided to give it a try at AEIOU. The cake is dense and so so only. its also expensive IMO. So.. nah. Maybe the mains might be a better option. I do like the atmosphere too, a good place to chill and the waiter was attentive. 2/5

AEIOU is a cafe that kept the original 70s frontage sign, with rustic mismatched furnitures & decorations, a Vintage Charm that brings out the old soul in you. ⌛️ • Ondeh Ondeh Cake (💵S$9/Slice, 💵S$90 Whole Cake) The cake captures the flavour & aroma of the traditional Peranakan kueh fairly well. 👍🏻 However, it's quite heavy & the cake itself is dense. I could probably throw it at my annoying good friend & she'll probably get knocked out & (she'll still eat it) 🍰 • ACAMASTIPS💮: The cakes here are impressive, a sight to behold. You'll be spoilt for choice but I'd rather you go for their Avocado Coffee (💵S$8) served with a chilled avocado milkshake & a double shot espresso, how does it taste like?? Try it out by yourself 🖖🏻

Treat Yo Self to Your Own Cafe When I got there on a rainy day, I was the only customer there ^w^ Really got to appreciate the cafe's set-up Had the oh-so-infamous Avocado Coffee(S$9.00) and a slice of Apple Crumble(S$8.00). There was a Tea Time discount for drinks paired with cakes. Total was S$12.50(Half off for drinks when cake's ordered) The Avocado as the smoothie alone was well blended and had a creamy avocado taste. When the coffee's mixed in, it gives a kick to the drink. As it also gradually melts the blend, the more it becomes a frappe, but if left too long, it can become too diluted and water-y. A slice of Apple Crumble can fill up the stomach real good. Ladies, i recommend sharing with friends. Gentlemen, it is worth the fill for your buck. It was not too sweet and had a subtle apple taste mixed in with the crumb toppings. It was also paired with some whipped cream on the side.

Korean BBQ for Friday 😘😘 . Makgeolli Yucha ($35) - rather special but we did not really like the bubbly foam & crushed yucha feel. Still prefer the cold soothing & smooth makgeolli . 4 Colours Set ($58) - as usual, we love the wine & the red pepper paste flavours best 😘 . Army Stew (add $6) - satisfied the craving for korean ramen of my dear dinner date 😋 My first visit to this outlet at Central. I still prefer the ambience & the friendly staff at the other outlet located at Scotts 😜 #burpple

Bingsu [$28] Biggest bingsu ever or what! Disguised as a bibimbap, the heap of milk ice beneath is topped with 8 colourful toppings - strawberries, kiwi, grapes, mangoes, crushed oreos, red beans, marshmallows and cereal as well as whipped cream and peach in the middle as an egg. We really enjoyed the fluffy soft milk ice, it's also probably one of the better tasting ones we’ve had around! That said though, I didn’t think the toppings justified the price as much, even though the portion did, if you bring a few more friends along. The bingsu was also served to us with a bottle of Hershey’s chocolate sauce, but I thought it worked better without it!

TGIF feels.... for Korean BBQ and definitely for one of the best one in Singapore would be @eightkoreanbbq! Just have to love their 8 Colour Pork Belly - every different "Colour" is of a different flavour from original to wine, miso and curry. This was a tasting by @eightkoreanbbq, thank you @juicyfingers for extending the invitation 🙌🏻

Local-Farmed Poulet 4 munchies: Having been in the southern ridges for 6 years and after going through its first mega overhaul, Vineyard at HortPark officially re-opens today with its beautifully aged-wood tables, overhung foliage, and local-grown herbs and vegetables from Vineyard’s very own edible garden! The free-range, locally-farmed chicken featured here is my top pick on the localised French-Italian menu. Brined overnight with cinnamon, orange zest, and fresh herbs from its edible garden, the tender meat retained most of the juices from the marinade. Served with crunchy greens and chewy shimeji ragout in a rich poultry jus, the secret to its flavoursome gravy was the roasting of chicken bones and red wine reduction! The sweet, tangy liquid from the charred meyer lemon also added depth to the sauce. #Burpproved

Nasi Lemak Set + Otah ($4) Hou Yea Street Kitchen (B1-01) just opened on Monday in the basement of Golden Mile Food Center serving up a pretty good/unique rendition of nasi lemak! They had to prepare a fresh batch of chicken when I made my order, so I got one that was piping hot. Crispy and a generous portion (thigh & drumstick? Yes please!), it was tasty with a slight sourish taste to the batter but the meat wasn't the most tender. What I really loved was the refreshing achar, fish otah with a strong fragrance of kaffir and that peanut & ikan combo that was really toasty and just dam good. I will say their rice and chilli could amp up a bit on the shiok factor though, as the items that binds the whole plate together felt a bit weak but still definitely an enjoyable plate! 😛

Hou Yeah Nasi Lemak ($5) This stall just opened up in the basement of Golden Mile offering Nasi Lemak with your favourite choices. It was the 2nd day since they opened when I tried it so they were facing teething issues, but overall a decent plate of Nasi Lemak.

Dry Hokkien Mee ($5) One of the rare finds in my book. The hokkien mee that we are familiar with is usually wet and the bee hoon is usually the thick version, so finding this dry variation and using thin bee hoon so close to office is a plus for me. I like this dry texture as it creates a stronger wok hei than the wet version. Every bite is flavourful and definitely enjoyable. They offer $4 to $6 portions as well, but I feel the $4 is a little too small, hence I chose one size up.

Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ($4) There's ALOT of food options here, but I always find myself gravitating towards this stall when I'm too overwhelmed by the variety. This is always a safe bet for a comforting bowl of soup with the natural sweetness from fish. The latter also came in tender and fresh slices. One of my favourite fish soup stalls to date, just because it's clean yet not tasteless which is a feat in itself. #B1-41, it is along the same row with the famous Yong Tau Foo. There is almost always a queue here, but in my opinion, it is very much the wait!

Sinfully Good Single Origin Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Platter ($12) This place is one for the dark chocolate lovers. I enjoyed this a lot, although it melted quickly. Small seating area in one of the open spaces (not an actual store with walls - if you know what I mean) & it got full real quick, literally right after I sat down. I got lucky! Don't say bojio: 15% off Single Origin & Signature Dessert Platters with HSBC cards. 😉 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Air-conditioned seats only 🙋 No service charge or GST 💦 Free iced water (at the collection counter)

Indulgent ice cream waffles ($14) If you LOVE dark chocolate (and I mean really dark like > 75%), then this is definitely the place for you. Go for their signature 80% dark chocolate ice cream I must say, or their single origin series if you're feeling all refined, or even their milk and white chocolate so don't worry if you can't appreciate their darker soul mates. As a dark chocolate lover (my favourite is 90% in fact), I knew I have to get their signature 80% to go with my waffles, and I paired it with pure vanilla to give an overall balance in taste (a bitter & rich with a sweet & light). The waffles came crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, topped with 2 big scoops of indulgence and caramelized almonds (which I hoped can be more, and the sugar-to-almond ratio can be improved). The dark chocolate and vanilla combination worked well, but I personally thought that the dark chocolate could've been more potent as it tasted a little flat, and the latter could be more fragrant. If you're getting 2 scoops, I would not advise getting 2 strong flavours (e.g. both dark chocolate, or dark chocolate with matcha); rather, complementary flavours such as dark chocolate with vanilla or mint will give you a yummier experience 😊 Also, seating capacity is small so be prepared to wait or just get an ice-cream to-go!

Prized for its artisanal dark chocolate made with single origin cacao, the 80% dark chocolate ice cream that accompanied the fluffy waffles at the dark gallery was a true winner. Rich without being not too overtly sweet, it was a perfect foil to the vanilla ice cream. That being said, I’ve read raving reviews about their chocolate rhapsody so that’s definitely something I’m eyeing to try next time.😋😋 • Conveniently located at millennia walk, its definitely a good choice for dessert if you’re in the area.

Stepping over to the dark side as we drop by @discoverthedark to have dark chocolate ice cream, drinks and pastries. Chocolate Cube Hazelnut Latte ($9), a glass of frozen chocolate cubes along side a bottle of steamed milk and hazelnut espresso, you can choose how strong you like your latte to be. Full-bodied and smooth, this makes a great perk-me-up drink. Thanks, @yongweikai for indulging us in all these dark cocoa dessert! • The Dark Gallery Address: 9 Raffles Boulevard, Unit 01-K5 Millenia Walk, Singapore 039596 #thedarkgallerysg #discoverthedark
