From Phati & Jane. I love Thai omelettes and I love their omelettes.

From Phati & Jane. My favourite dish here. It looks meagre because it's for one I think.

This chain brand was established in 1953 as 'Wang Jiao', and rebranded as 'Wang Cafe' in 2006, with the halal-certified spin-off 'Heavenly Wang' established in 2012.
.
Their rendition has a homemade broth infused with coconut milk, dried shrimp, and laksa leaves, carrying savoury milky spicy flavour.
.
The crisp bean sprouts and smooth thick rice vermicelli noodles lend grainy vegetal sweet flavour, while the bouncy hard boiled chicken egg lends eggy sweet flavour.
.
The springy fish cake carries sweet savoury flavour, while the spongy tofu puffs soak up the flavours of the lovely broth. No blood cockles here, instead, there's crunchy deshelled prawns with sweet savoury notes.

Founded by Madam Ang Siew Yan in 1995, and having since handed over to nephew Zhang Ji Lin since 2006, this stall is famed for their rich creamy broth, probably the thickest around, formerly served in individual claypots.
.
The heady spice mix to create the broth comprises galangal, turmeric, fermented shrimp paste, lemongrass, bird's eye chili, and more, all slow cooked over 2 hours.
.
But the secret is the freshly squeezed coconut milk, lending a creamy texture that cannot be replicated without the painstaking effort. The result is a laksa broth that bursts with addictive savoury milky spicy flavour and freshness.
.
The silky smooth thick rice vermicelli noodles hold grainy sweet flavour, while the crisp bean sprouts lend vegetal sweet flavour.
.
The spongy tofu puffs burst with grainy savoury spicy flavour, the springy fish cake lends sweet savoury notes, and the juicy blood cockles burst with briny salty mineral flavour.
.
They've also added chewy shredded chicken, whose gentle meaty savoury sweet flavour lends good body to this comforting bowl. Fresh laksa leaves lend a beautiful aroma.

The noodles were a bit hard. The sauce wasnt salty. They had siu siu chilli at the side which customers can add freely. The ramen egg was very nice.

We happened to visit during their limited edition menu in collab Siu Siu. One of the options were Tsukemen. The noodles were cooked to slightly softer side. The sauce wasnt too thick, abit soupy. It goes very well with the noodles. The char siew were too fatty for me. But the slices were very thick.

The title for the best #IKEA cheesecake is getting competitive with thie serious contender (this is New York cheesecake VS. our go-to fav Blueberry cheesecake). Our verdict is that this is defo a good one though not cheesy enough at the top. Texture is right with the cacao base (we think) It reminds us that not every cheesecake need digestive biscuit!! 😜

Yes, we've got Satay Bee Hoon at IKEA for our lunch! 😋 just realize how much we love IKEA local dish menu! The satay sauce is generous and full of crushed peanuts. The Bee Hoon noodle is slurpilicious served thoughtfully with fried tofu and marinated grilled chicken (3 pieces each). Woohoo, so yummy! 🤤 Wouldn't love it another way. 💛💯

One of my favourite claypot rice.

Chicken meat were tender and their salted fish infused rice smells and tasted damn good.

$15 portion is actually rather small for 2 pax. 2 pax must go for $20 & above man.

Yuan yuan at ABC is rather elusive, they only opened from Fridays to Mondays, and only during dinner time.

With 2 Gelato shops that are almost side by side, and a craving for ice cream overcoming my sweet tooth, we walked over after our dinner at ABC.

Carrara not only serves gelato, they have a wide menu of hot and savoury food on their menu, from pasta to rosti, etc.

But what is the must have here at Carrara, is definitely their waffle and ice cream.

Waffles were freshly made, smell so buttery & Aromatic even. The texture so crispy and tasted buttery.

Their Gelato had many varieties to choose from and I was really spoilt for choices.

Taste wise is good. But portion wise? Not worth it for $7 in my opinion. Asked for extra chicken and I did not get it.
