🍰 Explosion Taro Lava Salted Egg Floss Cake
📍Sherry’s Cake
📌 Bencoolen MRT Station
💰 $14

All my favourite things in one (pricey) cake! For anyone who didnt know, theres a hidden bakery in Bencoolen MRT Station, with chinese desserts akin to those from Xiao Gege Snowball Mochi and KS Baking. The stuff is pretty expensive but where else can you find these kinds of desserts?

The salted egg is pretty strong though theres not really enough to warrant it a “lava” cake. Taro is smooth and natural too and the floss adds a nice savoury flavour overall.

$14 for a small cake is pretty steep but if you can afford it, its worth a try!

@wildfireburgers.sg has been around for quite a while, and their burgers have consistently been in the elite tier of the burger rankings. I can’t even remember the last time I had Wildfire, and after devouring their Triple Bacon Cheeseburger ($24++ for double patties, making this a Triple Double) I’m wondering why I’ve been robbing myself of the pleasure. ⠀

Wildfire gets its name from the flames that leap out of the Binchotan charcoal fired INKA grill, and if you peer into the kitchen you’ll get to see a fire show every few minutes or so. The intense heat sears the patty in a jiffy, locking all the meaty moisture of the beef within the patties, while still putting a charming char on the patties. Speaking of the patties, these thick, juicy beef patties are crafted out of fine Aussie grain fed Angus ground beef topped with cheddar cheese. That combo delivers a brilliant balance of fat that brings flavour and beef that delivers satisfying meatiness blanketed by creamy, delicious, salty melted cheese.⠀

Perfect patties aside, the triple in the Triple Bacon Burger comes from the trifecta of crispy bacon bits, baconnaise (bacon mayonnaise) and bacon jam. The crispy bacon bits did well, but could’ve fared way better if they came as strips instead to maximise the crunch. The bacon jam & baconnaise, on the other hand, were absolutely awesome. The smokiness & savouriness of the bacon infused every morsel of burger with its porky smokiness, and every meaty mouthful was marvellous.⠀

The brioche burger buns were flawless, being delightfully doughy yet airy and bouncy. However, since they had been toasted with butter on, this Triple Double of mine got too cloying too quickly. Perhaps Wildfire should look into providing a fresh contrast to all the meaty madness in the burger by way of a few crisp leaves of lettuce, or maybe even a few pickles. Still, this Triple Double Bacon Cheeseburger is putting up GOAT tier performances that earn it a spot in the hall of fame.

not that great honestly there’s barely any meat :( it’s mostly bones

Fortune Center has a whole slew of vegetarian diners, but @enseeds_healthyfood stands out from amongst them by being the only protein & grain bowl place. Choose from a Vegan Bowl, a Power Protein set that has chicken as the protein, or select the Seabass Set like I did for $13.80 nett.⠀

For $13.80, I got a sizeable slab of seabass slathered in a tangy herb cream sauce that was rather addictive. The fish was fresh, firm & still moist, making it a healthy yet hearty bulking option. Besides the sterling seabass, I was entitled to three side dishes and a carb option. I elected to take baked pumpkin, Shuka Shuka (basically just shakshuka without the egg) and Ol Reliable, steamed broccoli.⠀

The baked pumpkin was oven roasted till soft, and the pumpkin was superbly sweet. It definitely needed a sprinkle of coarse sea salt to really make it pop, but it was still sufficiently tasty enough. The Shuka Shuka, however, was tremendously tasty. I am an eggplant hater, but I quite enjoyed this grilled eggplant & capsicum in tomato paste. Sure, I’m still not a fan of the mushy texture of eggplant, but the tangy, heartwarming sapidity of the tomato paste that the eggplant was in won me over.⠀

I never expected an old place like Fortune Center to house such a modern grain/protein bowl concept, but I’m certainly grateful that EN Seeds is going strong this close to my office.

Signature Fried Chicken ($22) / Cajun Fries ($4) I wanted to try their burger someday but then next year. GST increase into 9% and also most of the f&b stores will be increasing their GST and service charges with food also. I just decided to try those atas place before 2023 ends also. haha my diet just went up and down lol. I did like their sauce for burger and didn't really spread evenly tbh :") The batter and skin for fried chicken really too much. Fries just coated with cajun powder and quite flavourful tbh.

($3)It's quite nice ginger soda drink tbh and also quite spicy and refreshing drink.
