UJI MATCHA Pon De Ring from Mister Donut!

Ever since Mister Donut opened a new outlet near to me, I have always been itching to buy it, especially on days where the queue is not that long (LOL still cant get over how my first visit to Mister Donut at Bishan outlet was a more than 1.5hr long queue!) Nowadays, I will only queue if I see that there are less than 10 ppl in line!

Trying the new uji matcha flavour ($3 per piece) that was recently launched! Frankly, the matcha flavour is not very pronounced, and to me it just tastes like white chocolate lor, with very slight matcha colour/flavour/taste. Not sure why the price differential from the other flavoured pon de ring (the strawberry pon de ring is only $2.50)!

I conclude that my favourite pon de ring flavours are still strawberry and the glazed ones!

Do note that there is buying restriction limit of 6 pon de ring per person!

If you love putien style food, here is a cheaper alternative to Putien Restaurant!

Putien Beehoon at this stall at Toa Payoh Hdb hub basement foodcourt gourmet paradise! Love the thin version of the beehoon for putien style food! The citrusy spicy chilli dip is also a must! This item comes with 2 mini prawns, 4 clams, few slices of taupok and peanuts!

Chicken breast sous vide donburi from @fukudonsg !

There is choice of soy honey or teriyaki sauce. Each bowl comes with onsen egg, petai and sous vide chicken breast! The rice bowl also comes along with a slice of tofu and seaweed miso soup!

Fish & Chips with a Japanese fusion twist at @fryingfishclub !

Instead of the usual Dory or Haddock, they are using Shiro Maguro (White Tuna)! Shiro Maguro has a more firm and meatier texture!

-Nori Fish and Chips: I love the infusion of seaweed into the batter! This is served with asian slaw and fries!

-Spicy Fish and Chips: This was quite spicy for me!!! For someone who does eat malaxiangguo haha! But ordered this because of the kani salad! It comes with fries too! We both loved the crispy fries! Nicely fried!

-Yuzu Ramune
-Iced Lemon Peach

Here is what we ordered:
-Steamed Spare Ribs with Black Bean Sauce
-HK Style curry chicken
-XW Signature Fried Noodle

I was expecting the curry chicken to be the soup kind, but it was the thicker gravy type! Wished they had given more chicken curry gravy though! We finished up the sauce faster than the ingredients! Loved the soft mashy potatoes and the addition of the crispy taukee skin! As for the fried noodle, I thought it will be like Hong Kong Noodle kind of texture, but this was more like a Chinese ramen kind of texture, abit strange!

Back at Mangiano By CC for the second time!

This time round the set lunches were available on our visit!

Got the Japanese Scallop Aglio Olio set ($17.90++) which comes with soup of the day (it was mushroom soup for my day of visit), iced lemon tea/tea/coffee!

A very nice cozy place to have your meal!

For the aglio olio, I opted for mild spicy level and it was already quite spicy for me!

Craving for claypot frog legs? Head to Hua Zai Frog Porridge Zi Char!

Ordered the claypot frogs in spring onion sauce (3 pcs for $18) with porridge ($3; portion good enough for 2-3 pax)!

Love the silky smooth porridge drenched in the spring onion braised sauce! Frog leg was tender and nicely cooked!

First time dining at Josh's Grill!

Got the char grill chicken chop with mushroom cream sauce, which comes with choice of 2 sides! Picked the mash potato and cheesy butter rice. I was very impressed by the creamy mash potato, best I have ever eaten in this kind of western food place that let you choose the side! It was so buttery and light! On the other hand, I didn't quite enjoy the cheesy butter rice. Too cheesy / sticky for me! As for the sauce, I didn't expect it to be served separately. The cream sauce was also kinda of diluted.

But quite worth the money for the meal I feel! They have 15 very interesting sides for you to choose from too! Ranging from fries, baked potato, mac & cheese, onion rice, mala broccoli, corn, brussel sprouts and baked beans to cold sides such as salad, green mango and pineapple salad , spaghetti, coleslaw salad and potato salad! Think I will be back again to try their other sides! Eyeing the green mango pineapple salad especially!

Back at Tipo again! This time to try their prawn in pink ($17.90++)! Picked the linguine pasta for the meal! The linguine is made of chilli garlic, which is the perfect combi for this pink sauce! The pink sauce is a mixture of pomodoro and alfredo sauces! Best of both world’

103 Irrawaddy Rd, #01-09 Royal Square at Novena, Singapore 329566

Checking out another Acai place that eatbook recommended - Nana’s Acai!

Got the following regular size acais ($9.60):
-Classic Acai Bowl: Acai with fresh fruits, granola, nuts and superfoods!
-Mango Swirl: Acai with mango sorbet, fresh fruits, granola, nuts and superfoods!

The acai bowl also comes with a choice of drizzle! We picked the almond butter and cookie butter! Other choices were honey, nutella and peanut butter!

I thought it was quite special that they offer acai with fruity sorbet like coconut, lychee, mango and pitaya! The acai cup was also packed to the brim with so many ingredients!

They do not have any dine in seats here though, so it is a take and go concept!

CDC vouchers are accepted here if anyone still has unredeemed vouchers to spend by 31 Dec 2023!
