So this time, I tried another one of Tanuki Raw's creations. Tender seasoned Nagano Pork Belly Char Siew, Onsen Egg, Mixed Mushroom with Golden Salted Egg Hollandaise with warm Sushi Rice! Worth the calories and IMHO must try!! 5/5

Local delight: Rojak! This is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. The term "Rojak" is Malay for mixture. It consists of mixing deep fried dough fritters, Tau Pok aka deep fried beancurd (cut into small pieces), fruits like apple, pineapple, vegetables like white radish, kang kong, all thinly sliced and folded in with fermented prawn paste, sugar, lime, garnished with chopped peanuts and finely-cut fragrant ginger flowers for a piquant taste. Sometimes, the hawkers add in BBQed Cuttlefish Strips or blanched Cuttlefish (cut into bite sized portions). One of the best, if not the best in Singapore! 5/5

They call this 黑白配 (Black White Match). It's a type of Muah Chee (Glutinuous Rice Balls) coated in Traditional Crushed Peanut & Sugar (brown color) and a modified version with Black Sesame with sugar (black color). This is supposedly the famous Hougang Muah Chee now located at the Basement Food Court at HDB Hub. All I can say is that it was really yummy!! Must try!!! 5/5

This is by far one of the best Korean BBQs in terms of its food quality and authenticity in its setup and atmosphere. Love how the lady boss speaks with a hint of Korean accent in her replies and demeanor. Yummy marbled Wagyu short ribs, nicely portioned Pork Belly, well seasoned Chicken and the ever abundant side dishes (including Kimchi etc)...really love this place! They also serve Korean alcoholic beverages like Hite Beer, Sochu, Makgoelli (my fave!) MUST TRY 5/5

Alaskan Snow Crab: Level 7 of our 9 Tier Seafood Tower journey. I've had langostines before but not purely steamed ones. The last one we had was seasoned in spicy sauce and thus the actual taste of the langostines was actually masked to a certain extent. I feel the texture of the langostines is somewhat an acquired preference haha 3/5

This was Level 7 of our 9 Tier Seafood Tower for dinner yesterday nite at Captain K's! The steamed squid was presented in a pretty unique fashion with it stuffed with tasty glutinous rice. The entire squid was probably gutted as per normally and stuffed full of Kimchi Flavored Glutinuous Rice (I think) and steamed to perfection. After which, it was sliced into bite sized servings and kept warm in the 9 Tiers of steamy goodness! Dabbing the single servings in the Belachan Chilli paste & wah-la..ultimate yummy-ness right there in your mouth!! 5/5

So last night, we decided to have dinner at Whampoa Drive Makan Place. It's just impossible to pass up having the Hokkien Mee there. The queue was long as always but the Wok Hei and flavorful noodles, squids & prawns are worth the wait. With their signature 3 types of chilies (Paste/Red Chopped/Green Chopped), you get just the right amount of heat and spice with every yummy mouthful!! Must try!!! 5/5

In my humble opinion, this is by far one of the best Fried Carrot Cakes that one can find here in Singapore. The way it is prepared is slightly different from conventional methods of frying the raw carrot cake. The individual pieces of carrot cake are coated with a nice batter of beaten egg. The top layer of this 'paste' is fried till crispy and coated with a generous layer of chili paste. Sprinkled with spring onion and served, the flavors combined with the crisp texture make for a unique and yummy dish! At the lowest priced portion at $2/- a pop...it's a must try I guess. Only tricky part is the long wait...5/5

Good Morning! I've forgotten how yummy this congee (Fish/Chicken/Century Egg & Egg 😍) was. To have it again reminded me of how awesome old school simple hawker fair without aircon and other mainstream creature comforts. Good food always brings about a feeling of euphoria. Kudos to old school hawker foods and may we be able to preserve them in the modern day! 5/5

Firecracker Chicken Nest - This was a remake of the traditional Spicy Gong Bao (or Kung Poh) Diced Chicken but with a serious twist. Instead of being stir fried, the diced chicken was deep fried till the skin was crispy whilst retaining the juicy meat inside. After which, the chicken is served with chopped fried dried chilies and Mala seeds which numb your tongue if you bite one by accident. It's a really spicy dish but the chef created a Mango Purée but encased in a gelatin ball (which is placed in the broken egg shells to resemble egg yolks) which when consumed 'extinguishes' the heat caused by the chillies. Must try! 5/5

Yummy deep fried fish skins coated with a layer of golden salted egg yolk sauce. The fish skin was so crisp, every bite or mouthful was like having crackers but yet it was so light that imyou just keep having more without filling yourself up! 4/5
