We were surprised that the paper wrapping the chicken was actually edible. The sauce was pretty interesting, with a sourish tinge that added some flavour to the sauce. However we thought this was pretty average as compared to some of their other dishes.

We started off the meal by ordering the glass noodles salad. The dish served as our appetiser and it came with glass noodles and an assortment of other ingredients including prawns, squid, tofu, meatballs, mushrooms and a whole lot of veggies. The salad was also drizzled with spicy fish sauce (although you can request for it to be less spicy), and it was also drizzled with lime to give it a zesty feel. Pretty decent starter which costs $11.80++, which is a fairly decent price for the amount of ingredients in this dish.

Another staple that we always get at Thai restaurants would be the clear tomyum soup. We prefer the clear version over the red variety because the soup is usually not as thick and it is a lot more drinkable. The tomyum soup here is not very spicy as well and it was really fragrant. However, we felt that for the price ($13.50++), the amount was really little because there were only 4 prawns and there was only enough soup for 3 to 4 bowls.

One of our main dishes was chicken in Thai green curry and as it's name suggests, the dish was basically chicken chunks in green curry. There were other edibles inside the dish, including tofu and tomatoes, but we really got this mainly for the curry which we love to drizzle over our white rice. We thought that the curry at Suk's was great because it wasn't exceptionally milky (which makes it quite gelat), and it wasnt too spicy either. Definitely suits our taste buds although it is a little expensive at $13.50++.

We were looking for great Thai restaurants that were relatively affordably-priced and we came across Suk's Thai Kitchen! This is a restaurant in the Farrer Park area and it is convenient to get here as it was walking distance from the MRT.

For a start, we ordered a fried cabbage dish as we wanted some veggies in our meal. While this is not your usual Thai dish, we were absolutely amazed because there was so much wok hey and we loved the smokey taste. The cabbage leaves were also rather firm and crunchy to some extent, definitely not the limp variety we find at our caifan stalls. Will definitely order this for a vegetable dish again, especially since it's priced at $9.50++, cheaper than what you can get at many Chinese restaurants.

We are back at Cherki as we were pleased to find that the restaurant extended it's stay on Burpple Beyond, plus we really like their fusion peranakan cuisine. Today, we decided to try the braised pongteh lamb shank, which comes with a huge lamb shank served alongside a small serving of blue pea flower rice and achar. The lamb shank was braised for quite a long duration in a fermented bean paste and the meat was definitely no longer gamey, and the sauce covering the lamb shank had a slight nutty taste to it. However, we felt that the lamb meat could have been more tender, as parts of it were quite tough.

The rice was pretty fragrant although as in our previous reviews, we felt that the serving size could be larger to make for a more filling meal. The dish costs $24++ although you should use your Burpple Beyond vouchers if you have them to enjoy a discount. 😋

Cherki was packed to the brim on a Friday night and if you are ever thinking of visiting on a Friday nightz you need to make a reservation in advance!

We are back at Go Noodle House for their signature mi xian noodles in soup mixed with huadiao wine! The soup was great as usual and we downed it all, since the huadiao wine gave the soup a sweet aroma and gave the soup a very distinct flavour that we like.

Instead of going for the regular meatballs, we decided to go for the bursting Balls today, which are very similar to Fuzhou fishballs as they contain minced meat with a pork-based broth encased within. Do be careful when eating the bursting balls as the broth within may be pretty hot. 😨

Would be back next time to try their dry pan mee!

White Feathers is a diner hidden away in Goldhill Centre, hence a short walk would be needed to get there from Velocity. As we visited for lunch on a weekday, there were various lunch sets available! Most of them were fusion dishes (e.g. mentaiko pasta) but we decided to get something local - the curry kway teow! Note that this was also the cheapest item on the lunch menu, at around $9++

The dish was surprisingly good as the curry was flavourful but not too concentrated, hence the broth was drinkable to some extent! The kway teow was served alongside braised chicken and char siew that was really yummy (and fatty) too! It was quite a steal for the price.

The eatery wasn't very crowded and there wasn't much of a lunch crowd, but this means it's quite a decent place if you wanna sit down and have a conversation over lunch!

Tried the bubble tea the previous time we visited Isshin Machi, and we decided to go for another beverage this time round - the winter melon tea! The tea definitely tasted like winter melon tea but we are not sure how the black sugar came into play... It costs around $3.50 and is a pretty decent and unique beverage for that price!

We are back at Isshin Machi for their Taiwanese fare and today, we decided to try out the guan Miao noodles in beef broth that was served alongside a decent serving of pork chop! The beef broth was just delightful as you could definitely taste the beef flavour, but there was also a unique herbal taste in the soup! The flavour of the soup was also not too gamey, so it made for a comforting dinner in the evening. Note that this dish doesn come with beef slices in the soup, as you will need to order the braised beef noodles for that.

We changed our noodles to the guan miao noodles, which resembled the ban mian in Singapore although we felt that the guan miao noodles were softer and slightly more springy. 😋 The pork chop was great as usual as it was grilled and crisp on the outside, and we think it was marinated very well! Thankfully, the meat wasn't too tough too. Definitely worth a try if you like both the pork chop and beef soup!

Isshin Machi was still really crowded on a weekday evening and because they don't take reservations, you have to be prepared to queue for a table. Go earlier in the evening if possible. 😁

While they were generous with the mushrooms, the risotto tasted a tad too uncooked to our liking. Suggest to give this a miss!

We ended off our meal with the Hpa Luda, which was a dessert/drink that was highly recommended by Inle. The drink was basically an upmarket bandung drink, complete with sago, chendol, chin chou, atap-chi and a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Beware though, as the drink was extraordinarily sweet and you may want to share the drink with someone else, as the serving size was fairly generous too. We felt that the drink might have been a little pricey ($7++), although we were pleased to find out that Inle was rather generous with their toppings in the drink.

Inle was fairly empty at lunchtime on a weekday, which may not be too surprising since Burmese cuisine is somewhat exotic to Singaporeans here. Nonetheless, our food still took 20 minutes to arrive, which we would consider to be quite long given that the restaurant was nowhere near full.
