Here's an after-church lunch idea: @statelandcafe. Went there the other day and twas my first time trying their foods ㅡ been there a few times only for the desserts ㅡ and guess what? They're all SO GOOD! Like no-kidding good.
Here's what we ordered:
• Korean Fried Chicken [KFC] soy sauce Waffle,
• KFC Spicy sauce Waffle,
• Kimchi Carbonara,
• Truffle Fries,
• Red Velvet Waffle [not in frame]
Pasta was creamy and nicely cooked, truffle fries just being truffle fries [read: awesome like it supposed to be], and all KFC waffles are boneless, and served with kimchi coleslaw 😍! If i am to choose one of the waffles, I'd go for the soy sauce one! So flavorful I'm salivating writing this. The red velvet waffle was quite a down-point though.
It's not my everyday meal, cos price-wise it's more on weekend budget, but will i recommended this? U kidding me? Go! Now! We're still in weekend. 😂
Ps. Didn't realise earlier, but somehow out drinks were free. So....

Hainanese Chicken Rice Risotto 🐔: This dish is SO ON POINT 💯💯💯 Really tastes like chicken rice but is extra hearty and comforting in risotto form and the nice soy sauce like broth. Made perfect with crispy chicken skin and fried shallots! 😍
Mentaiko Tiger Prawn Pasta 🍤: a more ordinary dish that was well-executed. Such a generous dollop of mentaiko so the aglio olio was full of flavour with every bite 😍 Lemon made it extra refreshing and not jelat 👌🏻 All mains at Stateland are at $20nett price inclusive of drinks! Got myself an Apple Pie Latte ($5.50 on its own)! Turned out pretty yums with scents of cinnamon in between sips. #burpple #dqky
Had this and the salmon pho! Was a total hit this time. The salmon was a generous portion and the yuzu broth was so delicious we slurped it all up. Since we shared a main we had space for the marshmallow waffle. The soft serve flavour was Tokyo banana and it's not bad but I wouldn't order again. Waffle was really heavy. Will try the doughnut one next time!
A short five-minute walk from Bugis MRT Station, this industrial-chic cafe dishes out Asian-fusion bowls inspired by the owners' East Asia trip. The menu is straightforward — there are nine main courses available, and each comes with a complimentary drink (you're free to choose ANY drink from the drinks menu!). Prices are nett, portions are hearty and flavours are spot on, making this the perfect cafe stop if you're in the vicinity. We love the Hainanese Chicken Rice Risotto ($20) that comes with tender soy braised chicken on a bed of incredibly flavourful ginger risotto, served with a spicy sriracha chilli vinaigrette. Another winner in our books is the Mentaiko Tiger Prawn Pasta ($20) that features linguine tossed in a lightly torched mentaiko dressing. You won't want to miss out on their desserts! Be sure to ask for Brother Bird's (they share the same space) menu and get the Tokyo Banana ($14), a banana soft serve topped on their signature mochi donut that is reminiscent of a well-made hum jin pang.
Avg Price: $30 per person

What are the odds. I can't quite believe that it took me so long (probably a couple of years?) before I finally landed myself at @statelandcafe because it simply blew my mind when every single item on the menu sounded appealing. #notkidding. We were spent the longest time in a dilemma before...unanimously deciding that we were all going to order the Hainanese Chicken Rice Risotto ($20) 😂 I haven't had chicken rice in, what, years again probably? And it was a wonderful feeling digging into this dish. A deliciously accurate makeover of the much-loved hawker dish: tender, juicy white chicken ✔️ fragrant rice ✔️ kickass chili 💥✔️. This was SHIOK. It was incredibly filling, yet so addictive that it was hard to resist. Value-for-money too, as prices are met and you get a free drink too (even for dinner)! I highly recommend the lychee lemonade 🍹#burpple #burpproved
One very uniquely constructed dessert!! It's so filling I suggest sharing it with 2-3 people!
The sweetness of the cookie dough soft serve pairs really well with the savoury doughnut. I can only compare this combination with the likes of fried mars ball! However, a few mouthful of it might just leave you requesting for another cup of water!
Personal grade: B+
Where will you be heading to today? 📸 is the Hainanese Risotto ($21), a clever fusion dish featuring our favourite Hainanese chicken, spicy chili sauce on a bed of risotto rice.

Back at Stateland to try their new Tokyo Banana soft serve but we can't resist ordering their mains. From our favourite dishes Hainanese Chinese Rice Risotto ($20), Mentaiko Tiger Prawn Pasta ($20), Truffle Fries ($11) to trying new dishes such as Kimchi Carbonara ($18) and Soy Korean Fried Chicken Waffles ($18).
Enjoyed this flavoursome ice cream! I'm intrigued by the swirls, it's so cute! Texture had a bit of frostiness, loved it👍🏼
This was so stunning! The best part about this was the cracker bits and flaky garnish that gave the meal a exciting crunch and texture to the risotto dish. The chicken was tender, vegetables were a tidy portion. I love this dish to bits! ❤️
Loved the mix of ang Moh and Singaporean food in one plate;) really like how it was topped off with chicken rice chilli! Heheh
I have to admit feeling quite excited when seeing this on the menu. A Green Curry Donburi, promising luscious green curry and crisp fried chicken — what part of that doesn't sound yummy as hell? My favourite component of this rice bowl's definitely the fried chicken. Cause it's pretty massive, fairly lean, moist and juicy, and it's thin, crunchy batter was just 👌🏻👌🏻 Would've liked more curry to go with it, but beyond that this is really #Burpproved
Grilled beef steak with chilli and cumin on rice with soy and garlic sauce, yuzu dressing, pickled radish, onsen egg, spring onions.
This is a bowl for the 重口味.
Beef lovers will adore it 🖤
The broth was bright and refreshing, the salmon was superb, soft, fleshy and fresh.
I like how stateland is moving away from the conventional menu and bringing us fusion dishes that are warm, comforting and still feel close to heart. Definitely a contender for uniqueness.
Monster thinks eating salmon right off the bone it's brute and bearish, but he loves it anyway.
