Sundays

My typical Sunday goes like this light breakfast > church service > lunch > a whole family day > dinner... Pretty normal except I have the best family that likes to eat.... A lot so sundays become our good food day and in this space I'd like to share the good stuff we have (':

With quite some liberty to live to eat on the weekends recently - it feels like we are on a “streak” to clock different les amis food group concept #1

First a dinner date with mum at KOAL that I’ve bookmarked for awhile and the food does not disappoint. The 2 mains we had were starkly a hit and a miss. The tiger prawns was the former, 2 succulent ones to be exact in white wine butter sauce that were so easy to polish we wished there was more. Then the latter cut of steak we got was decent but forgettable, probably the blame on us for getting the “cheapest” cut.

I’d love to return to try other plates, and KOAL is another good place for different occasions that doesn’t exactly break the bank.

First a dinner date with mum at KOAL that I’ve bookmarked for awhile and the food does not disappoint. The signature slightly sweet white bread rolls were great to start with and vaguely reminds me of our soft Asian bread while being fancy with chive butter, sour cream (incorporated) and bacon bits.
I love trying different renditions of broccoli small plates and this one at KOAL hits the spot with Japanese flavors of sesame dressing, bonito flakes and a tangy savoury soy pickled onions to complement the richer flavors.

New deli-grocer in the East with dine in space was attractive enough to draw us in on a Saturday evening.
Our generously portioned fish and chips, fish burger featured similar beer battered haddock fish fillets that we found had a slightly overdone white meat while the batter was crisp on the outside but too thick and slightly undercooked inside. That said we did finish most of the meal snd the fries were fresh.
What I liked more were the seared salmon mentaiko and umami butter clams with toasted pita, reasons why I’d return to try other non-fried seafood produce to truly vouch for the quality of the produce here; after all aren’t they a deli-grocer.

Second time at Papi’s and it’s a casual alfresco setting at the Seah Street outlet.
My favourite taco out of the lot was the grilled fish tacos because it proves a point that you can have a flavourful fish taco without having to deep fry the fillet.
The evening’s soft corn tortillas came in different hues for the different sets we’ve ordered and made me curious if these were in-house made, overall the Mexican food here fare better on the flavors scale that masks the quality of ingredients at a palatable price point.

A delightful impromptu meal I had of late, we managed to score a table for 2 at Miznon on a Friday evening.
The Jerusalem Mezze was excellent for my dining companion on a clean - vegan food diet and a bread lover like me. I happily polished the boiled egg on her behalf and thought to myself “oh I do need to visit Israel at one point in my life!”
Miznon falafel patties were one of the best I’ve had in town and I loved the idea of crispy pita to spice up the otherwise superb Israeli staple carb.

One the better end of year meals of 2022 were these lovely sourdough pies from Yeast side.
We first had an oriental and european flavor each in the 1) Viet Ga which replicates Vietnamese Banh Mi with chicken chunks 2) Prosciutto and Arugula - faultless pizza ingredients. The star of the pies here lies in the sourdough crust, light, nothing unctuous yet paradoxically substantial.
I also thought probably sourdough Banh Mi might become a thing with this Viet Ga.
Because our sides of burrata salad, to clock in some greens; tater tots and roasted octopus left us wanting for more, we ended off our meal with a foursome honey, 4 cheese pizza with a drizzle of sweetness :)

The are rotating beer taps at Yeast Side to pair your food with some draft craft beer think brewlander, heart of darkness for those familiar with Asian craft breweries; my chosen poison was the Duncan's x One Drop - Blueberry Cherry Pastry Sour, tangy slightly sweetened and refreshing, how I like my booze ✨

Oh hello new Mexican joint on my radar, your food is worth returning for. While I doubt the taco wraps are made in house, they are tasty. The fish tacos here are also to die for with nicely battered fish fillets, fresh slaw and chipotle aioli sauce.
Your mains of pork ribs had slightly tough meat but otherwise the flavors from the sauce made up tremendously.
Cheese quesadillas are difficult to go wrong with and yours here are in my dining companion’s words “like cheese prata”; a healthier version I corrected with a lot more cheese and a slightly discordant rich sour cream dip.

Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
