Did anyone else realize how happening Fortune Centre is now compared to my SMU days? @wawasg specializes in lala (which were great), but their cockles are what really grabbed my attention.

Was shocked at the size of these! Slightly intimidating, these are the biggest cockles I’ve had but WaWa handled this cold dish perfectly. If you’re a fan of Putien’s cockle dish, this is very similar, with less garlic.

On the other hand, the Slut wasn’t bad, but we found it hard to justify the price for fancy egg and soldiers. It’s tasty though; with a oozy egg in a bed of creamy mash for you to dip into, but if you’re hungry, you’re gonna have to order more food!

Was in the area early and the queue for @eggslutsg was pretty short, so why not? Had the highly recommended Fairfax Sandwich and their signature Slut ($11) for a pretty good weekend brunch. Definitely get the Fairfax, the bun is delightfully fluffy and light, coupled with the pillowy scrambled eggs, will have you feel like you’re biting into clouds.

Is it worth the hype? I’d say it’s worthy of a visit if the queue isn’t going to take ages. The vibes are good and had me feeling like I was a bit of a tourist!

The B.E.C ($12) is their iconic breakfast sandwich featuring a thick slab of juicy bacon, eggs in the form of scrambled eggs and habanero gribiche, and smokey American cheddar. A breakfast that is definitely overflowing with goodness (but I’d recommend to split halfies with a friend).

INSANE sandos from @46mittsu! A bite out of the Beef Sando and we were smitten by the crazy tender smoked beef brisket that had this gentle, fatty pull as you bite into it. The whole pickles might seem much, but it’s absolutely necessary to cut through all that meat.

@habitatcoffee has just moved into my hood (behind NTUC), and it’s pretty insane the variety of cafes in Lavender now! This comforting brunch item was everything I needed after a morning’s workout; a flakey grilled salmon fillet on truffle infused scrambled eggs over a slice of sourdough. Good food and good coffee, made even better by the modern minimalist decor.

Failed to get a table the first time, we came back to @taiersingapore with a vengeance (and a booking). Confident in their recipe, no changes to their spice level is allowed in their signature sauerkraut fish; mildly numbing with a pleasant heat, balanced nicely with the generous heap of the pickled vegetables in the broth. While this ought to be comfortable for most diners, I definitely know some would prefer options to spice it up a notch!

Besides the silky smooth fish slices, we also added on some bouncy beancurd and tang hoon ($3/each) which helped to provide some variety. Overall, definitely enjoyed the meal, especially with a big bowl of rice, though the prices are a bit steep to have too often. Do note that walk-ins are not allowed, so do make an early reservation if you’re planning a visit!

Located in the spanking new @gridsingapore (previously POMO) is @isshinmachi.sg, a hip Taiwanese restaurant that has a wide selection of food and even craft beers.

The fried rice passed the DTF test and came with a massive flattened crispy chicken thigh, seasoned in Taiwan’s signature hu jiao fen. Make sure to ask for their chilli oil to give this yummy dish that extra kick!

Amazing vibes over at @rawkitchenbar; cool, breezy outdoor space that’s pet-friendly too! The menu is compact but takes inspiration from a variety of Asian cuisines like Thai, Japanese, Balinese to name a few. Intrigued by their signature Raw Salmon Laab, their exciting take on Laab hit all the right notes; refreshing, herbaceous and just mildly spicy, though the toasted rice bits though were a little too crunchy for me. Looking forward to revisiting again on another cool day!

This was surprisingly good for a place we just randomly decided to drop into! Super crispy Korean fried chicken and you can pick to divvy up the whole chicken into two flavours. Best part is they offer a boneless option for all us lazy eaters.

Newly opened in @sunteccity, @kiwami_sg is almost your typical ramen joint with comforting ramens, gyozas, fried rice and more. While the base offerings seem normal, they do have interesting variants like the Mala Gyoza which hit all the right notes; just the right amount of numbing flavour in the sauce.

Coming from the @engroup_sg, the toriniku cha shu has high expectations, luckily it’s as tender and moist as it looks. Even the broth surprised me with its milky rich flavour that marries pork bone broth and the black garlic oil perfectly together.
