Hong Lim Hawker is one of my favourite to-go hawker, as they have so many nice food here! (But also, most of the popular food stalls have extremely long queues on both weekdays and Saturdays)!

Always making it a point to try something new each time I am here! This trip, we tried the noodles from The Noodle Memories (Unit 02-27)! Got the specialty dry chilli noodle ($5.50) at xiao la chilli level. It comes with you mian noodles, black fungus, poached egg, minced meat sauce and a crispy taukee! Their noodles are made fresh on-site! Their xiao la chilli spice level is also quite spicy already, so be careful if you cant take spice well!

Finally trying 大豆小豆 at Hong Lim!

They have pretty interesting and unique tauhuey flavours! You can also customise the sugar syrup for your tauhuey bowl and choose your preferred additional toppings!

Here is what we had:
💙one blue beancurd + tang yuan
🖤black sesame sauce beancurd + tang yuan
🧡soya milk

Smooth silky tauhuey! The soya milk drink also tastes slightly different from usual hawker stall! There was a nutty fragrant taste to it!

My favourite three items from Mei Heong Yuen!

-Mango Roll ($5): Coconut jelly wrapping fresh mango slices
-Yam Paste ($4.20): Comes with gingko and pumpkin too
-Colour Cakes ($3.90): Tri-colour platter of pumpkin kueh, yam kueh and carrot cake! My favourite of the three is the pumpkin kueh! The heebeehiam chilli is very spicy!

New chillout place in Chinatown Point - 3SeasonsTea 三千旬 !

@3seasonstea is an original Chinese seasonal fresh fruit tea brand from Chengdu China and they have just open their First Southeast Asia store in Singapore right at Chinatown!

They have a wide range of drinks, and they serve, tiramisu and cookies too!

Love the comfy relaxing seating area that they have!

Here is what we tried:
-Fresh Squeeze Mango Sago Grapefruit: Super refreshing! Lots of mango flesh and grapefruit pulp too!
-Avocado Strawberry Yogurt: Served in a cute bottle! The combi works well!

Finally made a trip to September Coffee Cafe!

This has been on my to-visit list of cafes for quite a while! Visited on a Friday evening and it was full house when we reached! The cafe doesn't take in reservations, so walk in queue only! Was told that the queue wait might be around 45mins, but we got called back in less than 15mins of walking around Chinatown!

Here is what we ordered:
-Crabmeat Linguine ($18+): Super love this! No regrets choosing this! Quite a substantial portion of pasta and crabmeat. Everything went so well together with the ebiko and seaweed strips! The pasta sauce is spicy lemon garlic butter so it had a little spice flavour to it. Pasta was also cooked to the right texture!
-Hearty Brekkie with Pancetta ($22+): We had BRUNCH food for DINNER! haha! Loved this platter because there was French toast! Instead of the usual sourdough bread etc. Loved the Uni Mayo Tater Tots! You can also choose whether you want pancetta / smoked salmon / scrambled eggs for the proteins!

Enjoyed the food here!

Unatoto specialises in in charcoal-grilled unagi don! They promise reasonable, fast and tasty unagi rice bowls!

Featured here is the Unajyu Deluxe ($22++)! Super shiok meal with a huge and thick slice of unagi on top of fluffy Japanese white rice! We also tried their Unadon Double ($14.50++), which is the number 1 Signature item! Get double pieces of unagi for this!

You can also add on $4++ for Value Set A (Soup + Side dish) or $5++ for Value Set B (Mini Soba/Udon + Side dish)! We picked the Set A and got their Unagi Liver Soup, Red Miso Soup, Onsen Egg and Chilled Tofu!

For appetisers, we got the Unagi Chawanmushi ($6++) and assorted tempura ($11++)! The chawanmushi was super smooth and has lots of ingredients in it like unagi, mushroom, fishcake and prawn! The assorted tempura is highly recommended! There is tempura unagi, prawn and mushroom! It was our first time trying tempura unagi and we super loved it!

Head to @unatoto_sg now! And great news, they will be opening another new outlet at Novena Square this month!!

Apiary!

Got the signature brown butter waffles with double scoop ice cream - apiary and pistachio ($8 for waffle + $9 for double scoop + $0.5 for premium flavour + $1 for signature sicilian pistachio = total $18.50)

The signature apiary ice cream flavour consists of wildflower, honey and cocoa nibs! Very interesting! Got my usual favourite pistachio flavour to try too!

Overall enjoyed both the waffle and ice cream here! Both flavours were good! 👍🏻

Do not be deterred by the long queue on the first floor. They actually have alot of seating on the second upper floor! Just wait a while for the staff to let you in!

Great place for desserts after dinner!

Mr Appam at Maxwell Food Centre!

Have heard so much about this stall prior to visiting! The stall is operated by a Vietnamese owner (who accidentally won a bid for an Indian stall and was unable to change the stall type afterwards).

We decided to get the basic Original Appam ($3 for two pieces) to try! Each serving comes with the orange palm sugar and grated coconut (which was not the sweet kind but slight sourish because it is fresh grated coconut). I loved the crispy edges of the Appam! But not very accustomed to the soft fluffy layer which tastes slightly sour as it is made from fermented rice flour. Guess I am still not an Appam convert lover.

But if anyone wants to try out Appam, this is the place to come to try!

Featured here are the following items:
-Can trust chic? ($14.50): Grilled teriyaki chicken thigh, sauteed mushroom, truffle schmear and mozzarella cheese. Super love this as the truffle taste was very aromatic! Juicy tender chicken too! Everything together was an explosion of flavours in the mouse! And look at the mozzarella cheese pull!

-Bag me up signature ($16.50): Have you heard of an UNAGI bagel! This bagel has unagi, katsuobushi egg salad, lettuce and tomatoes. Super love the egg salad with unagi!

Super love the fragrant fresh milk teas!

Tried the matcha millefeuille pancakes 3 years ago and didnt fancy them. This time round, I decided to try the Mango Pancake (4 pcs for $16.40). Top up $1 for vanilla ice cream.

I much prefer this non-matcha pancake version! The pancake was light and fluffy, with fresh mango chunks and some almond flakes in between the layers! Belle-Ville's pancakes are known to be only 80% cooked, so it is much more eggy and fluffy! It is almost like a souffle pancake!

Slightly regretted getting the 4 piece portion, because it was too much to finish for 1 pax. So if you are dining alone, get the 2 piece portion instead (I was initially afraid that the 2 piece portion would not be enough, but it actually was sufficient haha)!
