Affordable tasty western food from Rise & Grind Grill

-Cream of Mushroom Soup ($3.90+): Very creamy and flavourful mushroom soup! Served with crispy croutons too!
-Onion Rings ($4.90+): Crispy fried onion rings! Served with a side of mayo sauce dip.
-Crispy Chicken wings ($9.9+): Very juicy, crispy and nicely marinated!
-Surf & Turf ($18.90+): For this combo, you get grilled fish and grilled chicken! The chicken chop was grilled to perfection! Super juicy! It comes with a choice of 2 sides. We picked the butter rice and mashed potatoes and they turned out to be the best side dishes ever! This butter rice looked plain, but lo and behold, it was super flavourful! Tastiest butter rice ever that I could not stop eating it! The mashed potato was also very soft and creamy, and the mashed potato sauce was super good!
-Fish and chips ($15.90+): Very huge portions of fried fish fillet given. Two huge slabs! It is served with crispy fries and salad.
-Lava cake with ice cream ($7.90+): For the ice cream, you can choose between strawberry, chocolate or vanilla ice cream! Two whole scoops of ice cream are given too! Moist lava cake with super oozy chocolate centre!
-Iced Earl Grey Milk Tea ($3.90+)
-Lychee Lemonade ($3.50+): This came with 2 lychees too!

Indulge yourself once in a PINK moon!

Was surprised to find it crowded even on a friday mid-day timing! The cafe was fully occupied shortly after I arrived!

Tried the following items:

Raspberry lychee Rose Tea cake ($7.20): Was initially apprehensive about ordering the tea cakes, but having read good reviews for it I decided to give it a go! Also because it was sooo pretty! It was surprisingly moist, not hard/dense at all, and it was served warm! There was lychee bites in the cake too!

Grape Yakult Honey Sencha ($6.50): Got a drink because I didnt have stomach space for another cake! The drink was soooo pretty! In pink and purple hue! But other than that, I find it quite hard to justify its price tag though. But once in awhile to indulge and pamper yourself, I am all for it!

There are so many other cakes here that I want t o try, and their signature brown butter waffles with gelato! Will be back!

New Mookata Spot - @wanwanmookata at Macpherson Area!

I am glad to find another delicious eatery spot in the Macpherson area!

Featured here is the fun size package ($32.80) which is good for 1-2 pax! You get black pepper pork collar, garlic overdosed chicken thigh, tiger prawns, abalone, sausages, crabstick, meatballs, cheese tofu, quail eggs, enoki mushrooms, vegetables, tanghoon, tomyum mama noodles and an egg!

What is also special about this mookata place is that they also serve premium ingredients like the following items! These items can be ordered as ala carte items (min $25 order) or add-on to your bundle meal:
Hokkaido scallops
Jumbo Oysters
Thai sausages
Shishamo

I also super love the thai dipping sauces they gave! Both the red and chilli! Went very well with the grilled meats and seafood!

Our favourite way of eating the mookata is to grill the ingredients; boil the ingredients in the chicken soup; taste enough of the chicken soup; before turning the soup into tom yum noodle soup; and ending off with a wobbly egg!

Check them out at 171 Macpherson Road, Singapore 348536. Their operating hours are 5-11pm daily, as well as 11am-2pm on weekdays.

Tried the large tarts last year for Vday, and this year (for belated vday) I am trying the mini tarts! 💕

Featured here are the flavours for this weekend (till 27 feb), arranged in order of my preference:
✨Lychee Rose: Super love the popping lychee boba!
✨Orh Nee: Smooth orh nee with coconut cream!
✨Passionfruit Curd: citrusy passionfruit with whipped white chocolate ganache!
✨Earl Grey Lavender: Earl grey infused tea flavours with white chocolate ganache!
✨Sea Salt Dark Chocolate: For dark chocolate lovers, comes topped with sea salt flakes!
✨Burnt Cheesecake: A different kind of burnt cheesecake!

Pretty and delicious tarts, a delightful afternoon treat to have!

Drunkard seafood noodle ($9): Got this because it was the star recommended item. First impression was not alot of ingredients - there were two prawns, few slices of squid and lots of carrots, baby corn and veg. So for a non-veg eater, there wasnt much to eat hehe. While the wok hey was strong, we found it slightly oily.

Second time back at Super Thai by Soi Aroy!

The last time I got the ala carte main dishes tze char style, this time round I tried their rice/noodle dishes!

Basil minced pork with rice ($8): You are able to customise the spicyness level for this. I ordered the original spicyness level and it was just right! Super love this dish. Comfort food for cold rainy days!

The claypot prawn beehoon ($8) was the best item with much wok hey, followed by the fried hor fan (crispy hor fan which you only dip into the hor fan sauce when you are ready to eat ($4), and seafood meegoreng ($5). The seafood meegoreng was the spiciest item for me and I don't think I will order it again. Will be back again to try the curry chicken hor fan! We didn't get it this time because we were having fried fritters from my favourite lao zhong zhong five spice too (featuring a $12.60 portion worth of fish fillet, chestnut cake, fishball, egg, spring roll, ngor hiang, sotong and fried prawn fritter)! #tzechar #136hongkongstreetfishheadsteamboat #laozhongzhong #laozhongzhongfivespice #burpple #burpplesg

Ang Ku Kueh girl strikes again! Have you heard of ang ku kueh waffle? For the month of August, froroll has introduced this majulah singapura specials, along with the other durian waffle item! For $15.80+, u get a red mochi waffle, peanut muah chee, salted peanut butter icecream rollies and peanut candy! I must say the portion was HUGE, too much for even 2 ppl to share. I like that there was mochi inside the waffle, and the waffle was a substantial huge slab (unlike some other ice cream parlours). But because everything consisted of peanuts and too much muah chee, it kind of got too overwhelming for us and we were going 🥜haha. (Tip: claim a $20 eatigo voucher from ezlink app with 54 points, book an eatigo reservation for this place (most timings are 10% off), make an order of min $20 value.. tada! We only had to pay 60 cents for this dessert trip hehe)

Happy national day Singapore!! 🇸🇬 #burpple #burpplesg #froroll #redvelvetwaffle #angkukueh #muahchee #icecream #icecreamrollies #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #foodtrails #sgfoodies #sgeats

Made of peach pulp in the shape of Pokemon balls!😍 Got the Taiwan green tea (25%)! But I thought the pearl didn't have a strong peach taste, it tasted pretty much like any other normal pearl.. #burpple #burpplesg #playmade #playmadesg #bobapearl #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #sgfoodie #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #foodtrailsg #pokeboba #pokemon #pokemonball

And I always find it funny how the coffeeshops are across a small road from each other. So you will see ppl tabaoing the laozhongzhong over to eat tgt w their prawn noodle on the other side. On a sat morn, the queue is super long, and I had to wait around 30mins for this! Had the big prawn noodle soup this time round for a change (have always been eating the small prawns previously). Love the robust soup! And as usual, my special order of no beansprouts 😅 #burpple #burpplesg #prawnnoodle #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #sgfoodie #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #explores

The location is at the revamped flagship store near serangoon Broadway studio. What's new is that there is a dine in place at the back of the retail shop now! It is interesting that every dish here on the menu has bakkwa infused in it! My favourites for the night was the DIY sliders ($14++). Firstly, the plating was soooo aesthetically pleasing, especially the small cute quail egg! Secondly, it was so fun to DIY your own burger. Every ingredient here went so well tgt, from the buttered buns, to the gold coins bakkwa, to the caramelised onion, and finally w the kick-ass sambal sauce! My next fav dish of the night was the gourmet enoki roll ($9.50++). Im glad I took the advice to finish the whole roll in one mouthful, because with that you won't waste a single drop of the sauce that came with it! Also, if you are wondering, that is a thinly sliced piece of carrot wrapping it! I also loved the truffle mushroom salad ($16++)! The truffle taste was super strong and I loved the crunchy and soft chewy texture all in one. It comes served with the beef bakkwa (but do ask the staff if you wish to change to pork bakkwa). The chicken roulade ($22++) was also an interesting dish for me, as I have never tried the crispy bakkwa before! Do give this a try if anyone is curious!
Other highlights were the mozarella katsu ($10++), summer salad ($14++), cappellini carbonara ($12++), seafood couscous ($22++). To make your meal affordable, do check out burpplebeyond!

Had the umami prawn pasta and the chilli crab pasta. The chilli crab pasta portions were quite small though, I was kinda surprised when it was served. And there were not much crabmeat chunks. It is quite a spicy dish though. And those fried cubes are crispy mantous! The umami prawn pasta had a more generous portion with small prawns and prawn roe! We loved the hot taro drink ($6.50+) as well! 💜
