Baby Octopus in soy sauce ($8).

A definite must order here. Cooked to just the right texture and topped with fried garlic, this pairs so well with the accompanying fresh chilli blend.

Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice
.
Finally tried the famed tiktok chicken rice located at the basement of Katong Shopping Centre. This is a v challenging trip from the tight parking lots to the minimal seating and the impolite lunchtime crowd all vying for seats but the chicken rice was worth the visit. Ordered both types of chicken to make the best of the trip. White was very tender and succulent while the roasted has a nicer skin with just a mildly drier meat. Also loved that we got both the lotus and cabbage soups and many rounds of achar. Surprisingly, the soups were chock full of ingredients not just briny water. Prices are definitely on the pricier side but I guess that’s to make up for the freeflow freebies.

BBQ Boneless Thigh Nasi Lemak ($7)
.
Halal chicken thigh nasilemak @soulfood.catering serving up juicy marinated chicken thigh that goes best with the fragrant coconut rice and sweet chilli.

The sizzling Lechon Sisig ($12.50) also pulls its weight with its chopped up lechon being caramelized on the hotplate mixed in with a raw egg. Be prepared to queue on weekends though as it is also a favourite dining spot for our Filipino friends.

Chopped Lechon ($22)
.
@lechonrepublicsg serves up the best way to do pork and the best rendition I’ve had. Possibly heart attack inducing but a must try before die dish. Every piece of crackling was crisp while every slab of meat slathered with the accompanying gravy was enough to go down with 2 mouthfuls of rice.

The honey butter toasts needs refinement as it was neither pillowy nor eggy enough imo. Will be back to try some of the swiss rolls collab with Antionette since it was sold out so early on opening day.

Signature Fried Pork Set ($8.80)
.
New branch opening @thehainanstory had us joining the queue to enjoy 7 different hainanese concepts culminated at 1 location. This typical hainanese curry rice set’s star was the crispy fried pork that was aromatic, crispy and juicy all at the same time. Most of the items were pocket friendly but we felt that there were some hits and misses from our order.

Fiery Fatimah ($8.90)
.
A local inspired sushi roll filled with grilled otah, boiled egg, sambal sauce, peanut anchovies. A very familiar nasi lemak flavour with a nice crunch. Recommended to also add on the Kettle popcorn with its unique savoury flavours like nasi lemak and chilli crab. We tried both and the chilli crab was surprisingly addictive.

Thanks @burpple for the invitation and @wooshisg for hosting.

Wooshi x Burpple Bowl ($10.90)
.
Limited time deal until end March @wooshisg with #burpplebeyond . Super value meal to get double the treat of kara-age and kani sticks topped with fried shallots and a special pink sweet fish floss sitting on a bed of brown rice and served with a tub of super creamy salted egg sauce.

Vietnamese Broken Rice w Grilled Pork ($8.95)
.
This nondescript vietnamese joint located at the basement of Plaza Singapura has been getting constant evening queues probably in part due to the modest space but also the friendly pocket prices and authentic viet food served. Tried the broken rice, an interesting texture of rice that’s hard to describe. What i enjoyed was the tender grilled pork that wasn’t too dry and carried a mildly sweet and smoked flavour.

Clams ($16)
.
@zhen_de_la clams actually stole the limelight away from the speciality prawn noodles. A fusion of loca and japanese flavours, the clams were swimming in a melting pot of flavours when belacan married sake. There’s a real kick to the gravy and would have loved some bread to mop it all up.
