($8.50) I get a sniff of strong and sweet strawberry smell after opening the cake box. But I felt that matcha cream got light but thick texture after eating finish. The taste for matcha cake got mild sweet and bitter. As the sliced strawberry was quite fresh inside the cake, the strawberry puree complemented with the cake well.

(6 Inch - $65.40) I decided to try their best selling cake as I wanted something light after half month celebrating other's birthday cake. It's quite refreshing, sweet and sour taste for summer period especially you want something light and refreshing cake. But my sister told me that she could not find the cake shop location for woodleigh mall after I passed address to her lol.

($2.10) it's quite weird taste tbh for matcha and got dark green colour for filling.

The omakase restaurant in a boutique hotel is interesting. Worth a visit.

If you like your coffee strong, this Dirty Code ($6) fits your palette just right. It came in a pretty sizeable glass, and the coffee itself was strong and aromatic. With quite heavy chocolate notes, it's almost like drinking a very rich mocha! I love how creamy and rich the whole cup was, hence an enjoyable glass to sip. Do note that it can be quite strong at the start as it's mostly the espresso shot you're drinking!

This is one popular cafe along Neil Road, so do prepare to queue abit. One cafe I would consider coming back for!

I added tau pok ($1) and cabbage ($1.50). They used pearl rice. The portion was also big and value for money. The lu rou was fragrant and not too salty. I would recommend to try this! The price is also very affordable.

Had the Unique Handroll Experience of them making each Handroll in front of you and they will only make the other once we have finish one.

We ordered the Rappu 6 Tengo ($42) and the sashimi, seafood wise is ok, but is the flavour of the rice & the cunchyness seaweed then got me the most. Quite unique experience.

Lotus chips wise ok although I think would be good with more flavour

Among the many high end restaurants and bars located around the area, lies this inconspicuous zi char restaurant that was really pretty decent, while being relatively affordable!

Their Fish Meat Soup ($20 for medium) is one worth commenting on. The soup itself is light, not multidimensional but still decent. What's good is their fish chunks which were huge and fresh! Many pieces were given as well. Love how meaty and flaky the pieces were!

Their Yang Zhou Fried Rice ($15 for medium) came generous and I loved how fluffy the rice was. This has loads of wok hei and charred bits which flavoured the rice well.

The Claypot Bringal with Minced Pork ($18 for medium) was also another dish we liked. Loved how the dish had so much umami flavours and that the bringal was really soft! Best paired with rice.

Prawn Paste Chicken ($15 for medium) was unexpectedly good. Honestly, the colour of the fry was pale and we didn't expect it to be delicious. However, the outer crust was so crispy, and so full of umami flavours! The chicken was well marinated, as the seasoning penetrated the chicken well. Darn addictive!

The Poached Chinese Spinach ($21) is a good vegetable option, as it not only came with salted egg and century egg, it came with flowy poached eggs too 😍 Flavourful but not too salty, this is a good break from all the rich meat dishes.

I wouldn't say that the dishes were particularly mind-blowing, but they were definitely comforting. A zi char restaurant I will come back again for!

Karanga 4/5

Nakupenda 3/5 (Purple Taro)

Had a weekend dinner at Noa with my partner and her family. We were a large group and ordered many of their dishes, and I will highlight some that I really enjoyed.

For appetizers, three dishes really stood out. First and foremost was their signature NOA β€œBomba.” The meatballs had a clean, crisp exterior with flavorful and juicy meat within, paired perfectly with the harissa and allioli sauces. The other starter that not only myself but my entire group thoroughly enjoyed was the hummus salad. The texture was perfectly creamy, and the chickpeas were of great quality. Topped with sardines and grape salad, the hummus was a unique and delightful dish that paired wonderfully with the warm and fluffy bread served alongside it. Last but definitely not least for the starters, my personal favorite which really impressed me was the falafel. Fried perfectly, the chickpeas were fresh and of high quality. The za’atar yogurt and olive oil were extremely flavorful, elevating the entire dish.

For the small dishes, a must-order is definitely the burnt cauliflower salad. It was so good that we had to order seconds. They roasted the cauliflower impeccably, and the sauce it was served with is unlike any other I have tasted before. It was citrusy with a hint of sourness from the plum, plus a hint of saltiness from the anchovies, making it a really special dish.

For the mains, two dishes stood out to me: the black angus beef tenderloin and the Iberico suckling pig belly. The beef was cooked just right, with a texture that was neither too tough nor too soft. The potato puree and vegetable escabeche with their sauces blended really well with the meatiness of the beef. My personal favorite main was the latter, the suckling pig chunks were packed with flavor, and every bite oozed with juices. The cuts were perfect, with the right amount of skin, fats, and lean meat in every piece. What really brought the gastronomic experience of this dish to the next level had to be the roasted pineapple served with it. The pineapple was sweet and juicy with a seared exterior, and having it alongside or even after every bite of the pork added a unique flavor and also served to clear the greasiness of the pork.

Moving on to the desserts, I chose to take a leap of faith and ordered the truffle cheesecake. To put it out there, this dessert is not for everybody. The truffle smell and taste are extremely strong. Even for me, someone who absolutely loves truffle and cheese, it still took me by surprise. The portion stated was for two people, but it definitely could serve up to four or even five given that it is quite overwhelming. That being said, nonetheless, I really enjoyed it, and it was an eye-opening experience.

The ambience of the restaurant was great, it had an up-class yet chill environment. The wait staff were extremely attentive, and service was great. Not forgetting the drinks, they have a decent alcohol selection. I ordered the Moscow Mule, and it was an extremely well-done cocktail. I wouldn’t expect less as they had an entire bar within the restaurant, and the bartender seemed to be very proficient in what he was doing.

Overall, Noa offers great food with an impressive selection of dishes and drinks. The prices are definitely on the higher side, but Noa is perfect if you are looking to celebrate something special.

While the sauce was more than enough to coat the noodles and I preferred the stronger savouriness of this to Obba’s, the noodles resembled ramen and could have a chewier bite. [7.5/10]

Broth was spicy with Korean chilli powder and had a generous serving of vegetables and a variety of seafood β€” mussels, clams and squid though not the freshest, not a fan of the noodles which had an alkaline taste too 🫣 [6/10]
