While the crabcake was crackalackin’, the other crab dish of the night at @yeastside.sg, the Mentaiko Mac & Cheese ($17++), was just lacking. In theory, this macaroni dish was supposed to be epic. Combining the creamy, deeply umami savouriness of mentaiko (pollock roe) with the creamy, carb-laden lusciousness of macaroni and cheese should be a match made in heaven, no?β €
β €
Well, no. It wasn’t to be. I expected the briny saltiness of the pollock roe to take charge and dominate the dish, but instead the umami of the mentaiko was relegated to an afterthought in the background. The creaminess of the mentaiko mayo, the bΓ©chamel and the beautiful blanket of melted cheese all combined to be a mouthful of too much creaminess. Worse yet, the entire mac & cheese tasted slightly artificial due to a flavour that I can’t quite describe or quantify.β €
β €
Sadly, with much regret, my palate absolutely refused to finish consuming this mentaiko mac & cheese. This is the first macaroni and cheese dish I have not polished off in my entire history, and it’s a bit of a shame that it had to happen here.

I’ve been a @yeastside.sg supporter when they first opened at King Albert Park, and I was only too happy to hear that they’ve expanded into a second, swankier premise closer to home. Not only that, but their menu has also expanded from their stellar sourdough pizzas to include small dishes like this Crabcake with Coleslaw ($18++).β €
β €
You only get a solitary crabcake for more than eighteen bucks, but it is a chonky crabcake. This is most definitely large enough to warrant a fork and a knife, and you’ll definitely want to slowly savour every bite of this cracking crabcake. The shredded crabmeat is mixed in with what feels like heavy cream for a creamy filling, which is shrouded in a delicate shell of breading before heading off to the deep fryer. This crabcake mix is plenty heavy on the spices, as I could taste whiffs of lemongrass, ginger and a few others within that creamy, salty crab filling.β €
β €
The compelling crunch of the thin shell of breading is contrast enough to the soft, mushy crab mix. However, the crunch factor here is upped with the inclusion of a remarkably fresh coleslaw. The β€˜slaw is incredibly zesty and quite spicy, and definitely has Thai flavours as its inspiration. It’s a very forceful palate cleanser, and it’s probably is overkill for this delicious crab cake, but I rather enjoyed it. The tobiko didn’t make much of an impact tastewise, but it still happily came along for the ride, occasionally chipping in with a few small pops to keep everything interesting.β €
β €
With this crabcake, Yeast Side have gone full beast side when it comes to food. This crab got cake, and imma clap that cake.

Ordered @madubakerysg's Madu Bun Box Special on @pickupp.sg recently and it consists of 4 buns in Mentaiko, Umami Mushroom, Classic Garlic and Nori Truffle! The buns were fluffy as usual while stuffed with a lot of filling. It's my first time trying Nori Truffle and I enjoyed it with a strong fragrant truffle flavour though my favourite flavour is still Mentaiko hehe

🍲 Ah Bao Braised Stew ($7.80) (7/10)
Comes with an assortment of ingredients like rice cake, meat balls, mushroom, quail eggs and more. The serving size is a bit smaller but its still worth it given the variety of ingredients you get. I personally still prefer regular braised pork rice, but stew lovers should try this.

πŸ₯© Imperial Pork Chop ($8.80) (8.8/10)
For $8.80, you get two big pieces of pork chop. Really well seasoned and crispy, super worth the price imo

πŸ— Honey Glazed Crispy Chicken ($8.80) (9/10)
A must try, the skin is really crispy and the meat is tender. The honey glaze is really good too, not too sweet and provides a lot of flavour.

🍟 Ah Bao Braised Pork Fries ($11.80) (8.4/10)
Imagine cheese fries, but elevated to include braised pork on top. It comes with melted cheese and mayo too, and the portion was pretty big. If you're into loaded fries, get this

The ratio however was way off in the π™Žπ™˜π™–π™‘π™‘π™žπ™€π™£ π˜Ύπ™π™žπ™˜π™ π™šπ™£ π™π™žπ™˜π™š ($5.80). By that we mean look at the proportion of chicken shreds to the rice (lowkey miserable btw). For what it’s worth, the chicken was dry but at least tasty when combined with the sauce and scallions. Sadly, there was clearly not much of that in quantity to even save this dish πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

+886 Bistro is a no frills cafe with quick and decent taiwanese food. Their dishes aren’t the biggest nor the best but hey at least it’s enough to satisfy some cravings. At least there’s no service charge here :D

You’re sure to be greeted by their cool blues and chill vibes as you walk right into this inconspicuous taiwanese cafe on the edge of jalan besar. While here, it’s a must to order the π˜Όπ™ π˜½π™–π™€ π˜½π™§π™–π™žπ™¨π™šπ™™ 𝙋𝙀𝙧𝙠 π™π™žπ™˜π™š ($5.80) - the pork belly 🐷 was braised to a savoury goodness with a perfect fat to meat ratio. The fatty sauces and juices found their way to blanket the rice too πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹Okay but maybe the pork belly could have been more tender, and there’s no braised egg,,, how can?? >:(

Love this Eggstop Sando found in Wooly’s Bagel! Crunchy and flavourful, very filling and satisfying! Left a lingering melted cheese taste after! Yummmms!

Much better than expected for the simplest GTF Bagel so I can imagine the other bagels would be good too! I think the truffle mayo made the difference! Gonna go back!πŸ‘
