Mui Kee Congee hailed from HK to open a 6-month pop up stall at Botanic Gardens.
The Fish Belly congee anonymously won our hearts that day with its distinct wok hei as the fish belly has been sauteed with rice wine beforehand. Be careful though, there might still be bones in the belly! The Scallop congee also came with wok hei flavour although it was less prominent. While the rest of the options had no wok hei whatsoever, the ingredients were still executed well, giving an unforgettable intense flavour to the already-so-good congee. Another highlight of the meal, for me, was the drunken chicken with goji berries. The sweet tender pieces of chicken went really well even with the plain congee.
While the pricing was rather steep for a bowl of congee, the bright side is you can save your time and money for the air tix. And it might a good switch from the typical cafe and hawker sight, as you will see lots of green (and dogs too!) while having your bowls of congee.

Garçons's black miso tuna probably had the most interesting combination of elements of all the dishes curated with Edible Garden City's local produce for the Festival for Good. The sweet Japanese corn purée would definitely please any corn-lover. The black miso coating on the tuna was a unique element that set this dish apart from the normal pan seared fish dishes around.

It was a creative twist of our local chicken rice. I love the idea of adding barley and brown rice to the typical rice grains. There was also an interesting subtle kick from the puree coming from the rendang spices added. Chicken was on point — so tender and fragrant — as it was sous vide and marinated before frying.

The combination piqued my curiosity and so decided to give it a try.It was not a bad dish, but perhaps the compelling combo didn't work out for me. The sago cake was moist but rather bland and yes, I know that it's supposed to be savoured with the gula melaka caramel but the gula melaka would overpower the entire dish. At the same time, the sour pineapple cubes clashed terribly with the sweet gula melaka. As for the dill springs, I was questioning their presence. It's a good attempt but not a successful one for me.

Throwback to One Night Stand Pop Up Stall. Bread toasted over charcoal, housemade kaya, 63 deg eggs and housemade luncheon meat. A decent twist for a typical local breakfast.

The best representation of mango sticky rice ever. Chunks of fresh sweet mango buried in coconut rice pudding ice cream, with thick toasted coconut flesh and (sticky) rice crispy on the white chocolate coating. I surrender to you, Neh Neh Pop!

I just love egg too much. A simple egg dish that was executed so well, reflected by the oozy yolk and golden brown batter. What's more is how the tangy purple slaw balances the yolk and salty minced meat. Love at every bite.
