I had a gorgeous bagel with avocado and salt beef for lunch today. it is a Thursday special and I added avocado on top of the $8 bagel. Topped with mustard it was just the perfect combination!

This $15 gyudon from Kabuke's lunch menu really hit the spot with the onsen egg and soft tender beef, seasoned with garlic chips and truffle! So umami, so oishi! Highly recommended!

There's also a new halal Korean fast food joint popping up in the suburbs (Bugis Village, Clementi Mall and Northpoint) called Jinjja Chicken. Crispy fried Korean chicken and authentic Korean dishes? Ye!

Sharing this wonderful Instagrammable platter from a new restaurant called Hawker Man at the new Singpost building in Paya Lebar. For $32 you can have steamed carrot cake, popiah, hokkien noodles, a spring chicken, some coleslaw and desserts! It is a bit pricey for hawker food but bonus for presentation! Would you want to try?

I don't think I will ever be sick of local food, not especially when it comes to a plate of freshly tossed springy noodles with roast pork belly and honey BBQ pork! Throw in some fragrant chillis and we have a winner. Get this at the basement food court of People's Park Centre (not complex).
My favorite drink at The Rookery - their Red Velvet Latte! It's like drinking the cake. Have a great weekend ahead everyone!
Another must try at Iza must be these big, plump, juicy grilled oysters. They were done just right and complements the sake/Japanese craft beers very well! Iza might be my favourite eating joint in the east of Singapore now.

GUEST QUESTION
Where can I get best Chilly crab in Singapore?
TIA
hi Chinmayi, you can try No Signboard in Geylang (there are a few branches) or Mellben Seafood at Tanjong Pagar!

McDonald's Singapore launched their limited edition Cheesy Loaded Fries today and upon reading the news I immediately went to try it out for lunch! However I was quite disappointed with it for how "generous" they are with the cheese. Friend's fries in the background looked better only after she asked them to add more cheese! The taste of the chicken bacon really contaminated the taste of the fries IMO and the miserly amount of cheese and sour cream did nothing to add to the joy of McFries. Not worth the calories or the cash (S$4.70 ala carte!)
Back in action on Pepo with some awesome skewers from a tasting at Iza, a new izakaya bar on East Coast! Apparently these are from the same guys behind The Skewer Bar in Geylang in a great collab though the selection in Iza is much wider with SG infused tapas such as Hae Bee Hiam onigiri and 4-egg chawanmushi. Highly recommend for easties to go check them out!

What better way to end off this amazing trip to Shanghai than brunch at The Commune Social? Tapas food was amazingly prepared such as this smoked salmon scrambled egg dish. I'm going to miss this big rambling Chinese city!
At our friend's house in Shanghai and they have prepared this delicious looking Middle Eastern dish with figs and sweet potato! I am not sure what it's called but it sure looks amazing!

When in Shanghai one must eat their steamed crab & pork dumplings so that's what I did all day. Now I feel like Kungfu Panda, haha. Late dinner later at Mr and Mrs Bund!

Apparently Michelin winning wanton noodles, right in the heart of Shanghai's CBD at ζ­£ζ–—

I'll be going to Shanghai for the next 5 days and hopefully still be able to share my food adventures there, but here in SG I end my night with a tasting sesh at Kyuu on 29 Keong Saik Rd for their super-worth it omakase set. This is just the appetizer plate, there's still sashimi (8 types), king prawn and snow crab plus A4 Wagyu and overflowing ikura on rice!

Explored a new place for lunch today via a foodie friend's recommendation! This HK roast meat stall called Rong Ji at the basement of People Park's Centre is great with juicy, well marinated roast meat and honey BBQ pork. Highly recommended!

Checked out the newly opened and much raved about Bayswater Kitchen opened by the PrivΓ© Group at Keppel Bay and was pleasantly delighted by the quality of the seafood there! This Fisherman's Feast for two was such a delicious one! Highly recommended.

Really delicious pizza from Nassim Hill Bakery, which is my favourite hidden spot in town after a long day of shopping. By the way Happy Black Friday!
Super healthy but tasty combi from The Autobus! My favorite lunch place to date in the CBD and this week they have a 30% off promo if you pay via the Fave app (ask the cashier for the code)! What a great deal! Check out my blog post on it as well at www.alexischeong.com
Saw a friend sharing this on Facebook - locally flavoured potato chips! I'm so curious as to how the Hainanese Chicken Rice and Singapore Laksa will taste. Which one do you think you would like to try???

Celebrated Friendsgiving in Singapore early with some homemade burgers over red wine at home! The patty was bought from a Middle-Eastern halal butcher in Tampines, which was so fresh and juicy! It is tough to go back to fast food burgers after some of these...

Today's delightful cod from PrivΓ© at an old friend's wedding luncheon at Chijmes, which was a beautiful venue to celebrate the occasion!

Today's brilliant and oh so satisfying local brunch from my favorite wanton noodle stall near my house. After last weekend's Bali trip and the mad rush of work after, this is such a comforting return....

My version of a happy meal! The protein bowls at Autobus are super underrated. Their coffees are excellent too.

Back in Singapore and the daily work grind, but a Park Bench Egg sandwich did the trick to lift my post-vacay blues. Their sandwiches are honestly the best in town so far!

In Ubud, Bali for the weekend and enjoying the blue skies, green fields and awesome food! The grilled chicken at Hujan Locale is perfect - a great restaurant to check out if you guys visit!

I just had to share this! What an awesome flatlay of the food at Kabuke, my friend's sake and gastrobar on Telok Ayer. Press and influencer feedback has been πŸ’― positive which is great. And you guys heard about Kabuke here first!

One of the most unique Singapore street food - oyster omelette with chili! There was a "tingkat party" yesterday at Chinatown Food Street where you can get 3 dishes for $12 only! Actually Chinatown Food Street is great for tourists to sample all our local delights so check it out!

One of SG's most popular hotpot places is Hai Di Lao from China (which translates to scooping from the bottom of the ocean in Chinese). I don't eat it very often because it's quite "junky" but it's definitely great quality whenever I am there (Somerset 313 branch)! Especially love the 4-pot soup that comprised of mala, tomato and chicken soup. Yum.

Do you guys like hotpot? If so where is your fav??

Few of my favourite things when it comes to having a healthy meal. soba, salmon and broccoli! I think Wheat Bistro gets a lot of fans here in Singapore.

on some days you just want eggs and bacon and today's that sort of day! I love how I can get here within minutes though the wait for the food was long. I wished it was more bread instead of sausage as well! still, a happy meal!

Monster Curry never fails to disappoint with their spicy (levels 1-5!) curry and super generous portions ($17.90 for this). For my colleague who needs more calories due to gymming this was perfect! To everyone else, please share the plate :P Have you guys tried Monster Curry before???

Pistachio gelato and liege waffle which is not common in SG makes for a great dessert! I'll definitely recommend this place for gelato lovers. I really enjoyed it!
Super buttery and chewy but in a good way croissant best paired with a milky cup of coffee! Agree?

Today I switched to fried rice at Nam Seng where I had the noodles yesterday and I finished this in 8 minutes too. Oops. For the uninitiated though this is not as nice as the wanton noodles but hits the "I need some rice" spot.
No wonder Nam Seng wanton noodles are on the Michelin Guide (no star, but mention). It was so friggintastic I finished mine in 8 minutes. The noodles are rather thick but lubricated by lard oil while cuts of lean and not overly seasoned barbequed pork dots the plate. delicious and highly recommended!

I've always wanted to try the Tendon Kohaku and finally opportunity presented itself! The Suntec branch is famous but the Boat Quay branch had no queue and a ready table. For $15 you get a bowl of freshly fried assorted tempura drenched in a sweet sauce over some rice. It's super worth it for all the ingredients. I'll recommend for people to try it if there isn't a queue for a satisfying dinner or lunch!

Happy weekend! I'm so glad we have made it over the sweltering heatwave we have been trapped in since Wed. nothing a couple of coconut and chocolate ice cream on charcoal waffle can't fix :P
Today's colourful plate comes from the famous nasi lemak stall at the interim market at Market St for Golden Shoe hawker. It was decent though not cheap at $4.70 for all carte and the rice was a little smushy. However it's definitely flavourful and satisfying!
How does a thick, juicy bulgogi burger with kimchi sound? Excellent, right? However the execution here at Burgerlicious did not meet expectations - it was quite small and the patty though juicy, slightly burnt. Kimchi is a little too sour. Wouldn't recommend :(

It's the eve of Diwali here in multi-ethnic Singapore which means we get to enjoy a holiday tomorrow and be thankful for goodness triumphing over evil! I love our many cultures, religions and flavours - for how can one custom-make your own Japanese maki sushi from a restaurant started by Singaporeans in the heartlands? Something lighter in preparation for the feasting that is to begin. Have a good one everyone! πŸ˜™

I finally tried the famous dried Yong tao Foo near my house which has been attracting long queues for years. The dry version is the one that has my colleague craving for every week. It's really fresh and the sauce is sweet, savoury and complex when mixed with chilli. Wow.

Tonight's dinner from Kabuke featuring their truffle Wagyu Don with Grade 5 wagyu, grilled in its own fat and onsen egg. I am in love with this - if I can marry it I might. It's $28 and also available during lunch!
So a new "fusion hotdog" place just opened up TODAY on Robinson Road, opposite Lau Pa Sat at So Sofitel! Called HafuDog and made up of some really passionate young people. I got this chili dog w pork sausage for $9 though. It was tasty but definitely not enough to fill one up and for that price... ouch. I hope they will relook their pricing because that's the hardest part to stomach!

Finally tried Copper Chimney from Asia Square's food garden because butter chicken with naan is one of my favorite combinations! This is slightly pricey at $9.90 but it's quite good quality food though I wished for a thicker gravy. I enjoyed the naan very much.

Apparently this Copper Chimney has no relation to the famous one in Mumbai. Still I am glad that such good Indian food is readily accessible in Singapore!

My brother cooked some amazing homemade spaghetti with ragu sauce yesterday! When I tried asking for the recipe he said he went by feeling and it's all classic ingredients for Bolognese. Onions, carrots, celery, minced beef... yummy.

This truffle mazesoba from Kaneta Shoten at Chinatown Point was surprisingly delicious! Instead of minced meat there was chunks of fatty pork, mixed with super chewy thick noodles and a generous coating of truffle oil. yum!

A glass of Malbec and a nice sizzling short rib cut of beef with some salt and seasoning at the side is all you need for a Happy meal. It's only $22 as well! This hidden speakeasy steakhouse called Fat Belly sits at the back of acclaimed dessert parlour Sugarhaus at Serene Centre and only comes to life after 6! Reservations highly recommended as they only sit 10!

Nothing like a clear soup base with some beancurd skin/tofu stuffed with fish meat and rice noodles for a light lunch on a cloudy day. Quite the quintessential Singaporean style Yong Tau Foo, come to think of it. Check it out next time you visit a hawker centre! This one at the Golden Shoe Interim Hawker is decent enough.
