Distinctive of the style in their menu, this was their twist of local Ba Chor Mee in a pasta dish.
Besides minced meat and crispy pork lard, their Ba Chor Foie was zhng-ed up with chunks of foie gras for an extra punch.
Originally done with Angel Hair, we were a little disappointed that they had switched it to linguine instead which was less unique.
The “Honey Pot” was another of their special cocktails prepared and presented in interesting ways to tease the eyes and palate.

Not your usual traditional Peranakan cuisines here at @cherki_sg but expect some modern twists instead. Reading their menu and most of the items sounded like western cuisines but there were words of familiar Nyonya elements as well.
The Braised Ponteh Lamb Shank was my alternate choice to their Pangium Beef Wellington that everyone was also asking for but sold out. It was indeed tender and fall-off-the-bone. The Ponteh sauce went well with the lamb shank and wasn’t salty as I initially worried about.
Their Nyonya Herb Crusted Snapper was well executed and flavourful with the herbs. We were wondering why no sauce but understood that it really didn’t need any after we tasted it. Most of their mains would come with rice and Keropok so they were pretty filling.
We also had their Satay Chicken Tortilla and Truffle Itek Popiah for sharing. We loved the satay taste and how well it well on the Papadom shell for a different experience. The popiah was cleverly infused with truffle and also enhanced with waxed duck.
Newly opened and located at SCCC but their crowd was pretty consistent when we visited tonight.

The sheer length of this set looked impressive.
It included their delicious braised pork belly and Mei Cai, sous vide Wagyu steak, burnt chilli chicken and fried chicken, Kao Rou, steamed prawns, mermaid fish with plum powder. And there was the braised cabbage with bamboo shoots that were really yummy. The meal would end with red tea jelly if there was still space in the stomach for it.
It was a very comprehensive set with lots of meat, seafood and vegetables. Perfect set to sample most of the popular dishes at @thesaltedplumsg except that they weren’t of sampling sizes. In fact, we felt that this set was even good to feed 4. In summary, it was of amazing value on top of the great flavours.

Interestingly, they weren’t as packed as some others although we felt they were as good, if not better than some.
We liked that their appetisers were priced reasonably and came in small portions so we could try more varied dishes. We enjoyed what we had, grilled prawn, crab croquettes and especially the grilled octopus that was on point.
We picked their spiced glazed pork belly which was spectacular and yummy good, flavourful and great meat-fats proportions that was pleasant to enjoy.
There were more appealing sounding items on their mains, pasta and risotto list for a sumptuous meal. Similarly for their appetisers that we liked. But we were glad we saved space for dessert as the red wine poached pear we had was really memorable to end with.
We would recommend to wine and dine here after having some of their cocktails and absolutely loving them. Have a little chat with Mr Star who may concoct some special mix in your drinks if you’re not going for the wine.
The interior of @mpiresingapore was chic and cosy, for a formal date or comfortable gathering. The final highlight: members of @burpplebeyond would be delighted to enjoy the incredible valuable deals here. So sharing this good find, hopefully not at the expense of being harder to get a table next time.

While his flavourful Grandma’s “Te Kah” Beehoon has been widely shared about; the Chef J’s Mee Kia was a real gem on his menu. Served with BBQ pork cheek, crab meat and truffle sousvide egg, this was 1 elevated and satisfying bowl of Mee Kia to recommend.
Again, we had his Brandy white fish soup which had a really comforting taste. Many more tasty dishes on the menu, some of which we tried before, that we would return for.

From the menu specialising in Straits Asian food, we picked the recommended Hainanese chicken curry noodles and Peranakan seafood laksa.
Both dishes had our thumbs up, although the former stood out more for the creamy curry and the big grilled chicken thigh that already got us salivating even before tasting.
The laksa was delightful too, lemak and flavourful in a different way. And it was elevated with the fresh seafood. The sambal chilli provided a good kick, where more could be added for those appreciate the heat.
For more spicy Asian taste, we also had the mantou in chilli crab sauce which was a good variation of our local chilli crab dish.
With such tasty dishes, our experience was well complemented with weekend live music performance while seated under the tall glass ceiling of the Courtyard lounge.

With their handmade noodles, this was a satisfying dish for a simple meal. The tender Wagyu beef cubes were a good combination, though we wished there were more of it.
To make the meal more complete, their Tobiko prawn balls would be a good add-on. Their chilli tofu with century egg, on the other hand, makes an appetising starter for those who enjoy spicy.
Comparatively, we didn’t like their beef broth as much as the tomato broth, due to the distinct beef taste which was a little gamey. We would return for the tomato broth noodles, much more with existing discounts on several apps.

Inside, they served the typical kind of Izakaya dishes along with their wide variety of sakes and other drinks.
Nevertheless, the 7-course Omakase set we had showcased the skills and heart put into preparing their dishes. With thick-cut sashimi, oysters in ponzu, marvellously fried soft-shell crab and miso cod etc, it was a meal that satisfies. Of cos, the meal was even more complete with a bottle of sparkling sake.

We picked from their menu the Gashouse Eggs and Baked Egg Cocotte that were both satisfying to start a day with.
The former was a thick toast with melted cheese which cut open to an alluring runny egg. It was served with an awesome bacon jam that we couldn’t get enough of.
The Baked Egg Cocotte was the perfect alternative to our usual weekend soft-boiled egg with toast craving. Dip the sourdough into 2 plump eggs with chorizos, garbanzo beans and wasabi peas for a hearty treat.
Do indicate to the staff if you want stronger and they will suggest a “Magic” double-shot coffee with milk that’s not on their menu.
Another good reason why @onemancoffee is good for more than 1 is b’cos you can enjoy 1-for-1 for 2 on their mains with the @burpplebeyond app.

The braised pork leg meat was very tender and delicious. The wok-fried vermicelli had thoroughly up the essence of the braised pork and tasted really good. Complemented with their special chilli sauce, this was a comforting taste with a nostalgic “grandma” touch.
Their stir-fried fish maw with crabmeat, however, didn’t stand out in taste as much as its use of these ingredients. We felt that its flavour was rather “safe” much like that of fried bean sprouts; and could do with something bolder perhaps.
Nonetheless, we still enjoyed the flavours put together in some of the dishes in their menu and would see ourselves returning for more local Asian cuisines.

Their iconic “unicorn” Chawamushi was a to-try starter, piled with abundance of Ikura, Tobiko and a vanishing black unicorn as you eat.
True to their twists using familiar local ingredients, their Mentaiko cheese bruschetta was fused with crispy You Tiao.
We were recommended to their Woked Porridge which packed some good Wok Hei and with crunchy Tobiko. Upgrade it for crab and scallops, or their seasonal lobster porridge.
Also seasonal now is their Charcoal Duck Ramen with creamy (charcoal?) sauce that had a subtle Wok Hei taste too.
So yes again, this will be a place to rediscover familiar dishes with new twists using yet other familiar local ingredients. Now with @burpplebeyond or even without, you can enjoy their mains at 1-for-1 deals.
