Sous vide and then grilled, the steak from 5 Senses looked promising. Sadly, it was quite tough and chewy which was a bit of a let down after all the hits here (still tasted good though but you'll get a good jaw workout). 😖

I guess it can't be helped at the price you're paying but there's many other awesome things to order here (their carbonara, anything with salmon, the CUSTARD APPLE 🍎 😍) so don't worry about it. 😝

Stacks of Otoro (Fatty Tuna), Kuromatsu (Black Sea Perch), Zuke (Marinated Tuna) and Nodoguro (Shark Skin Halibut) that awaited moulding by Chef Tomo into sushi.
I have had quite a few memorable meals at “Sushi Kimura” but I dare say, today’s Omakase (we chose the $250++ option) featuring spring’s seasonal items was positively ambrosial. All the seafood we were served tasted like they’re at their peak of deliciousness.
It looks like Chef’s recent visits to Japan are reaping rewards. The relationships he’s been cultivating with new suppliers across the country is bearing fruit so to speak. How lucky for us to be able to enjoy such choice fish and other produce he’s harvested from them.

Healthy, vegan food can taste yummy. I didn’t even notice the fact that there wasn’t any meat in this Buddha Bowl ($9.90) that looked so eye-catching and tasted amazing! With a plethora of ingredients from chickpeas/edamame, tumeric cauliflower, sautéed mushrooms, purple slaw, marinated tofu, quinoa, other grilled vegetables and topped with a huge dollop of beetroot hummus, this bowl kept me satisfied all the way till dinner. So happy that I managed to score this item, which is honestly cheaper than any other similar dish I’ve seen so far.

Opted for medium rare and got a beautifully cooked steak on a bed of caramelised onions (they're super generous!). Would have liked a touch more salt (easily fixed by adding your own), but it's hard to go wrong with toast, onions, eggs and tender steak slices (sans the hopefully-accidental sinewy bit).

And having it for the first time, I went straight for their signature Bara Chirashi Don ($12.80). Located quite prominently and within sight of the mall’s entrance, Sushiro is difficult to miss especially with the long-forming line extending out to the far end of the floor during lunch. Hence not expecting the snaking queue on an early Wednesday afternoon, I was famished by the time I was seated. But of course well-worth the 20-minutes wait, the star of the show - the palm-sized sushi rice bowl piled generously with assorted chunks of seafood saved the day.

Loving the small hill of salmon, tuna, octopus, prawn and shiny ikura pops; the ingredients were all really sweet and firm. Not overpowered by the seasoning and cut into perfect bite-sized cubes for easy consumption, the sashimi used were able to remain their original flavours and I particularly enjoyed the chewy texture of the fresh octopus with a light refreshing hint of lemon. Lending an extra oomph was also a good sprinkle of sesame seeds and sesame oil, giving the entire umami bowl a fragrant finish.

Was never a big fan of the coffee (RM12.90) here (it's not bad; it just tastes like the kind you get from pre-nespresso era coffee machines), so I usually opt for the matcha latte. The green tea flavour could be more intense, but I like that it's unsweetened. You get a shot of syrup, so you can adjust the sweetness level according to your preference.

This new spot along Katong seems to be drawing in quite a crowd with their grain/salad bowls and chio space (think lotsa greenery and inspirational neon lighting). Just tick off which of their sous vide proteins (Chicken Breast, Dory Fillet, Norwegian Salmon Fillet +$3, Flat Iron Steak +$4.50) and choose a buncha sides... Pretty standard process. Definitely generous and a nice, guilt-free way to enjoy a meal, but the proteins all felt a little dry despite being sous vide. Would have really enjoyed it much more if it was juicier though we appreciated the portion sizes.

Man, these western hawker stalls are really putting up some game. A new stall in Berseh Food Centre, they're dishing out some really tasty food.

A gargantuan lamb shank that's definitely more than enough for one but you'll be astounded again when your fork sinks deftly through the tender meat. The accompanying sides were not bad, with a really tasty (but slightly salty) aglio olio and pickled purple cabbage. If you're game, get a straw (no shame!) when you're done and stick it down the bone for all that yummy bone marrow. 😛

Tsujiri Parfait comes in two forms; the normal milk based version and the matcha flavoured one. Went for the latter and the Parfait is filled with Matcha soft serve, two biscuit sticks, candied cherry, cornflakes and Azuki Red Beans. Matcha soft serve is really rich so expect it to be more bitter than sweet, and the main sweetness comes from the Azuki Red Beans instead. Cornflakes adds the crunch, but the supplied biscuits that could easily be bought off traditional tidbits shops from the tin sort of cheapens the overall feel, and the cherry adds a really artificial flavour to the parfait.

Opening along Bukit Pasoh Road, Boca serves authentic Portugese fare in a warm, stylish setting. Be welcomed into the three-storey shophouse by flights of Andorinha (swallows) which commemorate the spirit of returning home, and make yourself comfrotable in this stylish, warm space. Order the Prato de Salgadinhos Mistos, which is their platter of petiscos (the Portugese equivalent of tapas) and go for the super-comforting Açorda de Bacalhau (congee-esque bread with salted cod), and the Chouriço em Chamas (chorizo flame-grilled in brandy). End the evening with the original Portuguese Egg Tart, served with a liberal sprinkling of cinnamon and icing sugar as they should be. Sounds like an amazing date night, no?

Craving all things pork? If you are, newly-opened Dojo is THE place to go. Besides boasting a menu full of porky burger goodness, their sides that come with them are real hits too. Burgers range from $10-$13, which includes a side of fries and a drink. Go for the signature Sumo burger ($13) - pork patty with roasted sesame dressing and crispy pork-belly topped with salad, between two soft buns. If you want something lighter, try the Komba Bao ($6) - braised pork belly sandwiched between FRIED mantou buns!
