Sizzling hotplate western food from @bbsizzling !

Featured here are the following items:
Signature cornflakes chicken ($8.90) - The signature cornflake chicken caught my attention! This came with a side of crispy fries and with coleslaw. I love how the chicken thigh was crusted in a super crispy layer! Juicy fried chicken! A very large portion too! The fries were also super crispy, fried to golden brown colour. Came with curry/chilli powder dusted on it to give the fries more kick, super like it!
Mentaiko grilled salmon fillet ($14.90) - This was served in a sizzling hot plate and it continued sizzling for quite awhile more after serving to keep the food warm! The salmon was grilled to perfection with crispy salmon skin and tender fresh salmon. Went well with the mentaiko sauce! Comes with crispy fries and a healthy sides of broccoli.
Check them out at Beauty World Centre (144 Bukit Timah Road) 04-25 ! A good meal to recoup energy after your hikes nearby at Bukit Timah Nature Reserve / Macritchie Reservoir. They also have another outlet at NTU canteen 14 for those staying further west!

Rooftop garden korean food dining experience at @pinkcandy.sg !

They are part of the hawker centre, so you will have to stand around and hover over ppl who are about to leave to get your seats.

Besides the nice al fresco dining vibes with nice sunset view, I was pleasantly surprised by the food! I had actually lowered my expectations because I read some negative/average reviews for some particular items.

Ginseng Chicken Noodle Soup ($29.90): This contains half a chicken, and is good for 2-3 pax! We were actually quite surprised that there was UDON noodles in it! (Because the signboard was blocked by the bowls so we thought it was only ginseng chicken soup lol!) The soup contained tender soft chicken, dumplings, mushrooms, Tteok-bokki and beancurd! Oh, we were also surprised that it was served hot pot style! We thought it would just be in a stainless steel bowl. The hot pot style serving kept the soup pipping hot, so it was super delicious!

Seafood tofu soup ($12.90): This came with 2-3 fresh prawns, soft jiggly tofu, some clams and squid! The Sundubu-jjigae soup base was so good! This comes with a bowl of irce

Soy Sauce Chicken Wings ($14.90): 9 pieces, but they actually mean 4.5 wings if you get what i mean. This was quite nice, crispy batter and just at the right marination! (This was so much better than some other chicken wings from a famed korean stall in the aljunied mrt area which had thick batter that felt like it was refried many times!)
The bill amounted up to almost $60 for a 4 pax portion (plus additional order of 2 plain rice). If there is only one things that you can order, I will strongly recommend to try the ginseng chicken noodle soup stew!!

They also advertise themselves as serving korea homemade style food with NO MSG! Which I turned out to be quite true, as we were not super thirsty after the meal!

Fried porridge! This is quite a new and unknown dish! I have heard lots about Old World Bak Kut Teh and have been wanting to eat it but havent had the opportunity to do so. Happened to be around Beauty World area and a quick search on the internet recommended me to try this fried porridge from Feng Xiang Bak Kut Teh so here i am!

Featured here is the FX Pork Cutlet Fried Porridge ($6.90)! The fried porridge was cooked with big fire flames, so the wok hei is super gao! It reminded me about the burnt taste that i experienced from the fire ramen restaurant at somerset, but this burnt taste wasnt as smelly as the ramen one. The wok hei taste here gave it a knotch of flavourful smoky taste! I love the silky smooth porridge here! Also special mention to the fried pork cutlet! It was marinated to perfection, juicy and flavourful! Would have preferred if more fried pork cutlet portions were given! (I had to ration it with my fried porridge haha. But at least i could have mouthfuls of the fried porridge with no meat as it was really flavourful!)

Check them out at 144 Upper Bukit Timah Road, #04-65, Beauty World Centre, Singapore 588177

Second time back at Bakery Brera and Fine Foods Pte Ltd after almost one year! Always coming here for breakfast before long hikes at botanics garden or towards Macritchie reservoir area!

What is different this time round is that dine in on the two small tables outside are no longer allowed. The hawker centre was also closed for cleaning at the time of our visit. Luckily there are public sitting area right outside the bakery!

The last time I tried the matcha cruffin and kouign-aman. This time round, I got the croissant ($3.80), since it was less messy to eat as a takeaway. Think this item is also one of the cheapest item the bakery is selling. The croissant ticks all the boxes of a good croissant. It was still warm, buttery smell and taste, crispy flaky exterior and soft fluffy in the interior.

Will come back again to try more of the other items!

Visited amano last weekend and loved it!! Amano is situated in quite an ulu area though, at Namly Place amongst all the private residential building. the nearest mrt Sixth avenue MRT is quite a distance away as well! But with that said, they serve such great Italian dishes here!

The must get here to me is the truffle pizza! Pizza was thin crust kind (which I like). The truffle smell and taste was infused everywhere in the pizza! When the pizza was placed on our table I already could not stop saying "wah smells good!" Once I started biting into the pizza, it was "wow this tastes so good!"😍 It was interesting to also see them wood fire the pizza (swipe to last photo!)

We got the crabmeat pasta for second main since 2 pizzas would be too much for 2 pax. Crabmeat pasta was good but the crabmeat was shredded into super tiny pieces while I like to see them visibly and eat big chunks of crabmeat 😊

But on the whole, worth it with the Burpple beyond 1 for 1 and friendly service here with super good pizzas! Do come and visit!

Joo Seng Teochew Porrisge! Fun fact: I used to stay at Joo Seng! πŸ˜…

Have been eyeing this teochew porridge for a long long time and decided to make a visit after green corridor walk (from buona vista to beauty world)! This portion for 4 pax (with 3 drinks) amounted to $42.9! Not sure about the breakdown because teochew porridge don't give you the details (one thing that I don't really like about visiting these teochew porridge places. Lol and these place was weird they insisted that we paid for the meal AFTER eating. Making us wonder throughout the meal how much the meal will cost πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ). It is like atas caifan. Comforting food to eat though: Chye por egg, otah, fishcake, meatballs, braised duck (the braised duck is a MUST get here). The taupok, fried silverfish and braised cabbage were all requested by my dining companions, I won't usually order these items πŸ˜„

The breakfast works ($24++) wowed us. There was so much ingredients - scrambled egg, bacon, pork sausage, smoked salmon, potato wedges and bread! We also had the truffle egg prosciutto ($22++). I super love the truffle taste! It was my first time eating prosciutto and I didn't quite like it?🀭 Guess I will still stick to ham/bacon the next time! But a shout-out to the soft brioche toast for this! (I had intended to get the French toast initially, but it is now classified as a sweets and you can't get it for the one for one breakfast main with Burpplebeyond now) #burpple #burpplesg #burpplebeyond #elixirboutiqueroasters #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg #whatsgoodhere #sgfoodie

(Because it is nautical BLUE themeπŸ’™!) So the day finally came when shopbackgo is offering 45% discount for first time visit till today! On IG, 80% of the photos we saw was the lobster risotto. When in the restaurant,we also saw 3 a few groups trying that dish. But we decided to go for the truffled blackbeard ($18++) and Skipper's smoked duck ($24++)! The pasta was interesting as it is squid ink pasta but with truffle infused mushroom bacon cream sauce! So our mouth didn't get black at all, awesome! There were also walnuts that came with it to give it an interesting bite! The smoked duck pizza reminded us of timbre's pizza! Came with hoisin sauce, fried popiah skin and mushrooms too! But side comments: we thought the table was abit small while the dishes were too big πŸ˜‚ explored King Albert park Mall after the meal and realised there was a (small) eaglewings cinema there too! #burpple #burpplesg #shopbackgo #eaglewingsloft #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #sgfoodie #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #explores

Had the zhong zhong ngor hiang. Be sure to get there early if you want to try this! The beehoon was sold out 7pm+, while the ngor hiang items ran out fast before 8pm. But between this and my favourite lao zhong zhong and tai thong crescent, I prefer the latter. This doesn't have that much variety (they don't have the water chestnut cake thing and fried fillet fish) #burpple #burpplesg #bukittimahmarketandfoodcentre #bukittimahmarket #food #foodiesg #sgfoodie #whati8today #8dayseat #vscofoodie #iweeklyfood #sgfoodie #foodporn #foodstagram #vscofood #foodphotography #sgmakan #sgmakandiary #sgfoodstagram #singaporeeats #exploresingaporeeats #exploresg

On-route to watching beauty and the beast at lot1 (because shaw lido tickets were selling out at 10am 😞)

Top 1 hand made noodles ($3.50)! We found the noodle a little bit too hard/chewy? Is it supposed to be like that? #burpple
