Here I go again!

Sussing out the wanton mee, this time closer to home.
◾◾
Noodles were alittle springy, a plus point because I don't fancy soggy mee. Do not expect burnt charsiew or those with fats that melts. These were lean and sweet. Chilli sauce was not that spicy. I requested for extra chilli sauce and the heat was absolutely manageable. The wantons were quite flavorful with a tinge of sweetness.
◾◾
Quite a good plate of wanton mee but not the very best.

Because I was alittle hungry.

A little coffeebreak. Surprisingly I liked the brown sponge cake; not as fluffy as castella but soft enough. The other one is pandan coconut chiffon .. not the best but quite decent. Kopi very siew dai (less sugar) about a quarter of a tablespoon sugar. I even had to ask for less. I got a shock when the coffee server said "already little, the normal amount is a tablespoon". Can you imagine a tablespoon of sugar goes into that tiny cup?
◾◽
I did not bother to stir as clearly the sugar was below. Left about a third of kopi untouched. Good thing is I only patronize this place once in a blue moon.

This was not what I intended to eat.

Had to deviate because the set lunch was not available.
🔸🔸
This is lontong and I have not had it for years. The bright orange gravy was striking. Looks very fiery. With caution, a little sip of the gravy to test the heat. Wahhh.... pleasantly surprised, the spicyness was mild. Not too thick but the coconut milk was easy to detect. Drowned in this orange pool, long beans, eggplant, cabbage, carrots, beancurd, temoe, egg and of course lontong (rice cakes). There were mini bits and pieces of everything at the bottom which became slightly grainy.
🔸🔸
I liked it but even with the sambal chilli, it was a manageable heat. Preferred to be a tad spicier for the added kick. A tinge of disappointment felt as I had planned this visit for days only to miss out on the newly launched set lunch. What I like about this place, nice ambience with a cool view. I will be back.

Good to the last drop!

No drop has been wasted. 🔸🔸
An affogato with a sweet attitude. 2 dollops of vanilla ice cream and a chocolate cookie with espresso cream. Double shot espresso that leaves a strong robust bitter tone. The ice cream that sweetens up the palate. So now the fun starts. There goes the soft chewy cookie dunking in and out of the espresso, lapping up the ice cream.
🔸🔸
The end is bittersweet.

Pink?

Not my favorite color. But this pinky broth is uniquely pretty.
◾◽
Beetroot and blueberries were infused in the pork based broth. One thought... is it going to taste berryful or beetrooty? Well, hmm.... I could actually savor the porkyness of the broth. A little sweetness from the beetroot and berries. The ramen super springy, quite nice to nibble on. Charsiew very thin slice but just as good. The crunchyness came from the black fungus. I did a whole lot of sprinkling of chilli powder just to add another dimension to a bowl of pinky umaminess.
◾◽
Ok... I did like slurping this. It is special. I mean whoever thought of beetroot and blueberries (both antioxidants) in ramen broth. Duh... go try at least once. Tell me if you like it.

Pretty in purple.

Called "oimo".. 🔹🔹
Purple sweet potato on an almond tart. There are small bits of sweet potato and cream imbedded in that minute mountain of oimo. I like it that the swirl of sweet potato was alittle creamy but not grainy. The tart had a pleasant buttery finish but almond filling a tad sweet.
🔹🔹
A very pretty tart. Best to share the calories.

"Hojiak" in hokkien translates to good to eat.

This small and cozy eatery is a bit of a hidden gem. Located on the 2nd floor of Fuji Xerox Building, tucked in a quiet corner.
◾◽
Rice bowls are only available. This is the oven baked chicken leg over rice and splashed with generous amount of japanese curry. The eatery does the misen place of the chicken themselves and baked onsite. The moment I walked in, the aroma of the marinades wafted in the air. Smell was so umami! Flavor wise, sweet, atad salty and fragrant. A vigorous sprinkling of seaweed (super challenging to shoot) and chilli flakes for that bit of heat to balance off the sweetness of japanese curry. No foods are fried here and there is also a vegetarian option.
◾◽
Thank you Nehemiah @hojiak_sg for being a wonderful host. Btw... he is also the co-owner of the recently opened acai place @parallelsg at Raffles.

Ho-jiak is opened only from Mondays to Fridays 11am to 2.30pm. Closed on weekends.

Did you know green beans has a cooling effect on the body?

I adore this yummy bowl of green bean soup with 20 ingredients. The other bowl is called 8 treasure soup. Similar to cheng tng. ◾◽
When the crave, the urge to #jiaklocal desserts, this place always comes to mind. So simple and shiok.

It flowed, it ran, it oozed nonstop...

like lava spewing from an angry volcano. A pretty sight to behold.
🔸🔸
Beneath all that yellow silky mouthwatering liquid, lies portobello mushroom and healthy spinach resting on brioche. Brioche was thick enough to absorb the gooeyness of the yolk. Had the urge to request for black sauce and splash on the yolk. But hey.. i am not in a kopitiam. Anyway, the portobello was small. Actually looking forward to the very big ones.
🔸🔸
Overall, brunch was good. Sat outside alfresco style with fans going at full blast. It was alittle windy too so quite a pleasant feel.

Catching the drip.

Whilst most would hold the cone upright, I chose to savor mine "lying down". The thyme cone was aromatic and crispylicious. White chrysanthemum gelato so floral and sweet which made me reminisce my holiday in Japan.
◾◽
Amidst the stares & a snigger or two, I thought my "thyme" with the cone was truly enjoyable. What can I say? I like to be different.

Cool weather calls for warm, comforting and soothing food.

My all time favorite anytime. Being a foodie, it is always easy to overeat. Now and then, I have to remind myself to eat light & eat right and not eat with all your might. ◾◽
Porridge is plain but absolutely tasty. I can eat this for lunch and dinner. Just so good and healthy!! #porridge #lunchwithfriends #hungrygowhere #burpple #8dayseat #stfoodtrending #igers #openricesg #sgfoodies #bloggers #bloggerlife #topfoodshots #instagood #instafoodsg #discoversg #visitsingapore #jiaklocal #lightandeasy #healthy #singaporefood

A very simple dinner.

Handmade fishballs and fish dumplings. Boink boink!! Bouncy but yet soft. I felt the skin of fish dumplings were a little slimy. My dining partner remarked that the signature of the fishballs was the very odd shape. Not usual round.
◾◽
Second time trying this and my tastebuds tells me there was a tad too much sodium in the fishballs and the soup. Same but different from before.
