VLV Beggar's Chicken

An impressive display for all to watch when this giant lump of clay is set on fire to imitate how this dish was originally cooked. The thick clay is tough to break, but once cracked open, leaves unfold to reveal tender pieces of chicken with bamboo shoots and mushrooms covered in aged Hua Diao wine sauce. Served with Nepalese Rock Rice which is soft, puffy and pretty much tasteless. Mix the Beggar’s Chicken sauce with the rice to balance out the flavours. This was one of my favourite dishes we had for lunch (not in the set lunch menu).

Kinkin Chilli Pan Mee

Its you-mian dry, with meatballs, minced meat, fried onions, all you get to do is to add tons of fried chilli. The chilli gets saltier whn you add a lot, rather to spiciness. the chilli kick is not there. And its really really dry.. luckily it comes with soup! Bowl is big, but portion is small. ($5)

Sea Salt Bagel ($2.90) with Dill & Onion Cream Cheese ($4.20)

When I feel like having bagels I usually go to Sasha & Sons, but here’s one more spot to sort that craving out!

The bagels here were pleasantly chewy and are not too dense. You can choose to bring it home (get six for $15.90, assorted flavours available) or enjoy it right there. If you opt for the latter, they will half and toast the bagel for you. Pair it with one of the homemade cream cheeses that you can schmear onto at least two bagels – they usually have some samples for you to try beforehand at the counter.

Death by Chocolate ($13.90)

This is a chocoholic’s dream come true, especially if you also love coffee.
Comprising a super gao dark chocolate sorbet, chewy brownie chunks, chocolate streusels for crunch and a shard of chocolate "top hat”, the espresso (Dimattina Grande Tazza) added a much needed contrast against all that richness. We found it a little hard to finish towards the end, so make sure you share this with at least one more person.

p.s. If you, like me, were wondering if the top hat is meant to be poured on so it will melt and drape over, it won’t. 😅

For Penang Assam Laksa

This might just be as close as you can get to having the real deal. Penang Signature only has one item on the menu — Assam Laksa ($3.50). White, slightly translucent noodles are pre-packed into takeaway containers, even if you're eating it there. Upon order, the staff gives the huge pot of broth a good stir before ladling out the lusciously rich gravy that Tastemaker Fabian Poon describes as "belacan, heh ko (prawn paste), lemongrass, assam and my favourite, mint leaves all mixed harmoniously together in a fish broth". Tastemaker Kenneth Lee loves how the "sweetish prawn paste mixes perfectly with the sour tamarind" without overpowering the other flavours. Pro tip: Request for the gravy to be stored separately from the noodles if you're going to have this taken away — it keeps the noodles from getting soft and soggy!
Avg Price: $5 per person

Good Value Yakitori set lunch!

Nanbantei is legendary yakitori institution in Singapore. It's been around for more then 20 years. One of their highlights is their highly affordable yakitori set lunch. This was one of the places that I brought my then Girlfriend to when were dating in JC. At that time, this set lunch cost $9.80. After 15 years, it's still priced affordably at $13.80. You get 5 sticks of yakitori. chicken meatball, Quail's eggs, chicken thigh with leek, Pork with asparagus and pork wrapped with shisho leaves. There's also braised minced pork, mushroom and seaweed on the rice, kinda like a Japanese 卤肉饭. Always a joy to return here!😊
