Mind. Freaking. Blown. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Throw out all your sticky date puddings, this crazy creation from Chef Shen takes the cake and brings it to a whole other level! ๐Ÿ˜›

You know how some modern takes on desserts just lose their way? Well this one brings you on a joy ride then delivers you right back to your doorstep as the taste and textures of the pulot hitam really shines through. ๐Ÿ™ŒCoupled with the coconut ice cream, I could probably finish a couple of these, no problem ๐Ÿ˜‚Thanks Revolution Coffee for feeding us!

Life is a bed of ro..ast beef. Roast beef festival featuring this roast beef don for only $18.80++ . A mountain of tender roast beef, served with poached egg (yolk was sadly thoroughly cooked) and plump Japanese rice hidden beneath, soaking up the homemade sauce. Roast beef wasn't very hot so we grilled them on the side with butter as we ordered additional meat and veg to grill and it was absolutely tasty. What made this dish complete was the wasabi mayo dip on the side that we couldn't stop dipping everything into!

Let's imagine you order a dish named 'Korean Ice Kachang'. What arrives looks undeniably like the ice kachang we know and love - red beans, atap chee, pandan jelly, various colourful syrups - but when your spoon cuts into the icy mountain you discover it is snowy and fine...like bingsu ice. Should you approach the dish as (a) a Korean bingsu with ice kachang toppings or (b) a Singaporean ice kachang with bingsu-style shaved ice? It is an important question, because your overall impression of the dish would vary based on your fundamental concept of what the dish is.

This beautiful creation at the newly-launched Ninja Cut is described as a matcha 'hotcake' on the menu, but is categorically classified and referenced as a molten lava (pan)cake in most people's comments about it, mine included. Does the menu description exceedingly set up people for a pancake-y experience? Are the italics and inverted commas sufficient in informing the average customer that this ain't your classic hotcake? Are seals cuter than polar bears? Vital, vital talking points, these.

$18.90 for a bowl of noodles in a market food centre? YES BECAUSE THERE'S A WHOLE LOBSTER IN THERE (plus shells and prawns)! The broth didn't disappoint and will satisfy all sorts of crustacean cravings. It was garlicky, sweet from the fresh seafoods and packed with umami goodness - just imagine the beehoon soaking up all these rich flavours, mmm hmm!

It's not that obvious in the photo but this came with a huge serving of noodles and works rather well for sharing between 2 if you're not too hungry. Other noodle soup options include normal prawns, 'sumo' big prawns and crayfish, along with other dishes like Japanese Lala Soup and Grilled Clams.

Sumo is managed by young hawkers and their offerings have been selling out quite quickly, so head down earlier or drop a call to them at 92992621 before dropping by.

It's clearly the season for salted egg dishes - salted egg croissants, salted egg waffles, salted egg churros, etc. Just when you think that's about it, Crab Corner in Joo Koon serves up this Fried Rice with Salted Egg Crab Meat. Yes, fried rice! The bowl of salted egg crab meat is served separately. You can decide to mix them all up or eat it by the spoonful with your rice. The fried rice itself was nicely executed. It was fragrant and topped with cubes of scallops and prawns. The salted egg gravy was thick and flavorful with distinct hints of the curry leaves. I would have liked to see more crab meat though. I had mine mixed in but found it to reduce the taste of the salted egg gravy and got a little jerlat. I would have it by the spoonful next time! This dish only comes in one serving at $15, good for 1-2 pax. Service was friendly and dishes were served quickly!

As though our upsized portions of the famous "Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee" weren't enough, we had to get a plate of their braised pig trotter too. Zero regrets though as they all met my expectations.
The pale noodles looked plain but believe me, they did not taste that way at all. Cooked al dente rather than soft, every skinny strand seemed to be coated in some invisible yummy seasoning (I'm sure pork lard oil played a key role) because I could have happily eaten the noodles alone. However, being a chilli-lover, I added on a teaspoon of their "very spicy" dried chilli flakes to take things up a notch. And it was perfect. Toppings included thick slices of dark "cha siu" and sweet, firmly-crunchy Thai sausage, a few crispy wantons and blanched greens. If you're hungry, go for the large or jumbo sized servings because there's extra noodles and toppings in them.
Just as lovely was the braised pig trotter. Besides being fully saturated with the fragrant sauce it was simmered in for god-knows-how-long, everything about this was unbelievably tender. Lean part included.

Own made salted egg yolk sauce lavishly spread across whole fried chicken thigh. Each bite is an assault of the creamy rich sauce. A simple side of sesame slaw to complete the dish.

It serves the best and cheapest Char Siew (unless Yee Kee makes a comeback) and spare ribs in Singapore currently. The side order of plain noodles(very well-cooked, better than Crystal Jade - my friend said so) and it only cost $1!I will always ta bao at least 2kg of Char Siew and freeze it at home, so that I can have it at my convenience!As for the soya sauce chicken, there is a better stall with no/shorter queue.
Congratulations to Mr Chan again! More than that, I appreciate his persistence in maintaining the high standard of his cooking despite the snaking queue EVERY single day(close on Wednesdays). Being awarded one Michelin Star in the Singapore Michelin Guide 2016 can be a double-edged sword, depending on how we see it. BUT I do think Mr Chan is very pleased with his achievement, so I'm happy for him as well! KUDOS to Mr Chan!๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

*Pro tip - If you want to get your food fast, go right to the front of the queue and request to take away your choice of meat UNCUT. You can collect the meat within 10 minutes! ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป

Price: $4. Just about the best Wanton meet ever. At a mere $4, you get an extremely generous and delicious bowl of Watson mee filled with char Siew (a freaking lot of them), fried wantons and Q noodles. What's more is that the individual items are ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ especially the char siew!!! Never expected such good char siew from a wanton mee stall. The only downside is perhaps the queue, which can get REALLY long during lunch hours, and perhaps the rate at which the char siew gets sold out. Be early or be ready to regret missing out!

Price:$15. Might be back again! This new tempura outlet at suntec is rival of the established ginza brand in tanjong pagar. On its own, this tempura Don is absolutely value for money. You get a wide selection -- chicken, prawn, squid, corn and a few others. And it was well fried and the sauce was ok great. Nothing much I can fault. Especially at an economical price of $15. However, it pales a little in comparison to the ginza one which is marginally cheaper. Unlike the ginza one, this kohaku tempura Don doesn't come with the tempura egg (which is a serious plus point IMO), the chawamushi and miso soup. Taste wise, both are comparable, though it might ultimately boil down to preference. The tempura for this shop is more 'sauce-drenched' whereas the one in ginza is more fried. Though of course I'm quite sure that this can be varied if u were to specially request otherwise.

Price: $5~. Really can anything at tiong Bahru actually go wrong?!! As with any other desert at tiong Bahru bakery, this Berries tart is amazing. Just look at the glorious toppings! The tart itself was also tart-y to the right amount without being overly hard or brittle. 10/10 would go tiong bahru bakery for the other deserts (since they prove to be quite infallible)
