Was intrigued by Lagoon in a Bowl at Amoy Street Food Centre because of its rice that has a pretty blue hue. Thought it was gimmicky but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food! You can either get salmon, steak or salmon + steak. Was expecting these to be dry but they were Uber tender! Also we’re slightly under seasoned so that when paired with the Mentaiko sauce, it would not be too salty. Really appreciate the generous about of vegetables provided too for a well balanced dish!

Had high expectations for this place. Wanted to try one of their beef bowls but all sold out. So I got the truffle butadon. Meat was pretty tough and hard to chew. Rice was rather clumpy and hard. Marinades were good though, I can see potential.

Amoy has a lot of more modern food from young hawkers and this is one of them. Tbh wasn’t expecting much but eh not bad sia. I got the salmon Wagyu combi and Wah, I was expecting either one or both of the proteins to be dry but no leh. The Wagyu beef was extremely tender and juicy. A little under marinated but this was necessary because the mentaiko sauce it was slathered in was already quite gao. The salmon also was very tender, felt like a sous vide texture. This also came with blue rice (for the lagoon feelz) and I liked it. Price point is very steep for hawker food ($16) but idm eating it again lah if I’m feeling rich.

Gourmet burgers from a hawker stall are becoming a more common sight, and one of the newer ones in the market is Ashes Burnnit.

We chanced upon them at their Alexandra Village Food Centre outlet, which was a surprise because we always thought that they were only at Golden Mile Food Centre.

Got the Ashes Smash Cheese Burger ($5.90 for single patty, $8.40 for double patty) which came with a handcrafted beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, fried shallots and their signature sauce that were wedged between 2 very fluffy charcoal buns. We really liked the beef patty which was juicy and well marinated, but the buns were a little too thicc for our liking and they overwhelmed the other components. Overall, however, it’s still a decent burger for the price point! We definitely will be back to try their other offerings.
