Sushi-Go 2nd Outlet at AMH Hub dishes out  Sushi Promo w ‘Emoji’ Robot Servers
By Alex
Sushi-Go has finally arrive to North-east, in the buzzing AMK Hub. This time fitted in futuristic theme décor with a network of mini robots delivering freshly-made sushi to diners upon order. These ‘Go-Bots’ will serve with emoji-like expressions so that you won’t be fretting why the servers doesn’t serve you with emotion.

Consistency is key. Even before you are seated you will be greeted warmly with the hospitable robot “Irasshaimase!” before leading you to your designated seats – 1 of the 118 seats available there.

Its signature menu of over 150 varieties of sushi, hot items and desserts will be made fresh upon order from the restaurant’s mobile ordering system and delivered straight to your table via Go-Bots.

What I particularly like is the variety, hygiene, efficiency and price point, with sushi offerings starting from $1.80. Even for premium items like ikura gunkan and sashimi are priced as enticing at below $6. Very wallet friendly.

Of course, why would you visit a sushi restaurant if the restaurant doesn’t serve quality food. Sushi-Go does have a number of good contenders here. You won’t go wrong with the crowd pleasers such as the Lobster Salad-Go, Go-Tsumami Salmon Sushi and the Ikura Gunkan.

For me, I really like the Salmon Dragon Roll and the Aburi Shoyu Butter Hotate Sushi. The latter comes with a big, flame-seared juicy hotate scallop with a dash of terikyaki sauce and slick of butter slathered on top the gem. Very worth the $2.80 and it’s a party in the mouth.

Promotion – Two-day Launch Specials
Come 30 – 31 July, Sushi-Go will be having a $1 Sushi Unlimited all-day promo valid on the 30 nigiri items (U.P. $180 – $3) – while stocks last!

Orchard Live Seafood Serves Tasty Fresh Teochew-Style Seafood from the North

Orchard Live Seafood Serves Tasty Fresh Teochew-Style Seafood from the North
By Alex
Who would have knew that somewhere up North hosts a Chinese restaurant that serves fresh, quality seafood? Orchard Live Seafood in HomeTeamNS Khatib prepares its live catch in a signature Teochew style, all at unbelievably affordable prices.
The restaurant promises the most prized catch right out of the tanks with each and every dish, being one of the major direct importers of lobsters in Singapore.

True to their words, once you enter the restaurant and turn a corner you will see all the different crustaceans inside a wall of tanks, for your pickings!

Seafood sets the pace at Orchid Live Seafood but its main bestseller is its Live Lobster Porridge (starts from $72). We have the Live Southern Australian Lobster (seasonal price). The broth, which is simmered over low-heat for no less than 4 hours, gives a creamy sweetness for a bowl of immense comfort and flavour.
The newly-launched Lobster Salad ($158 fr 4-6 pax) is a refreshing kick-starter, although a tad expensive for me as an appetizer. Filled with a generous mixture of meaty lobsters’ chunks, cantaloupe and celery, the dish is topped with uni before serving.

Named after the founder of the restaurant Chef Steven Chua, the deep fried Signature Steven Chicken ($16 for 8pcs, $24 for 12 pcs, $30 for 16pcs), is signaturely good and simple. The coating of marmite and honey sauce marinade is enough to make the chicken parts umami.

Other sides like the Garlic Steamed Bamboo Clams ($16.80/ piece), Seasoned Fried Baby Squid with Sweet and Spicy Thai Sauce ($23) and Seasoned Fired Baby Squid ($23) is good and you can taste the oceanic freshness. Though pricing wise is still a tad luxurious for me.

Nevertheless, my personal favourite would definitely be the Salt Baked Yellow Roe Crab ($120 for 2 pieces). Filled with sweet roe, the mud crab is extremely flavourful (some might find salty) and simply delicious.

Promotion
From 25 June till 25 July, enjoy the following promotions when you dine in:
– 1 for 1 Southern Australian Lobsters (UP $288)
– 1 for 1 Garlic Steamed Bamboo Clams (UP $16.80)

Happy Birthday Skincare Review

How about looking a year younger every birthday?

This could be a dream come true with Happy Birthday Skincare Time Machine and Time Essence.

Each box comes with one Time Machine and 2 bottles of Time Essence.

Time Essence uses cutting edge science and a property blend which work together with your skin to bring you good skin days. What I really love about their essence is how quickly it gets absorbed into the skin. There is no sticky or oily residue and I always wake up to glowing and supple skin the next morning.

The essence is said to promote skin elasticity, brightness, evenness, and youthfulness while diminishing all seven variants of forms and lines.

​Ingredients that makes up Happy Birthday Time Essence:

  • Uttwiler Spätlauber Apple Stem Cells – slows down the onset and depth of wrinkles and prevent UV damage.
  • Superoxide Dismutase – most powerful antioxidant enzymes in the body. Stimulates self-repair, protects against oxidative stress, and combats hyperpigmentation from sun damage, age spots, and acne marks for a more even complexion, it brightens the skin overall.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate – attracts moisture in skin cells and reduces dryness and flaking by increasing hydration.
  • Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – tightens the skin and almost immediately reduces deep wrinkles.
  • Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 – stimulates collagen production to create more youthful cells and promotes healthy tissue growth, resulting in firmer, younger-looking smoother skin with reduced wrinkles and fine lines.

For even better results, I recommend you to use the essence with Happy Birthday’s Time Machine (LED light therapy device). Time machine uses gentle LED pulsed light therapy to promote healthy looking skin. Do not belittle this device as it has three different lights for different function.

  • Red LED diminishes signs of ageing and boosts self-repair.
  • Green LED evens out skin tones, brightens dull complexions and softens dark spots.
  • Blue LED stabilizes overactive oil production and prevents breakouts.

It is a small and handy device that you can bring along for your staycations or travel trips. You can shop till you drop overseas and still wake up to good skin!

After using Time Essence and Time Machine for months, I noticed that my skin has gotten visibly brighter and firmer! This is not based on my own observation alone because even my husband asked me what did I do to my face because he noticed the glow himself.

I am so surprised that my skin is still glowing despite the lack of sleep from breastfeeding!

I am a user of Happy Birthday Skincare and I love the results! I don’t enjoy having glowing skin – said no one ever.

Slake brings SEA Comfort Food with Local Twist

Slake brings SEA Comfort Food with Local Twist
By Alex
Relocating from the sleepy Opera Estate neighbourhood to city-centre at The Riverwalk just opposite Clarke Quay Central, Slake kicks off the new chapter with succulent localized Southeast Asian cuisine Singaporeans should find familiar.
Of course, who doesn’t love fiery spices and explosive tastes in our dishes?

For appetizer, we got the Cold Rendang Custard ($9). It can be easily passed off as tofu ala Japanese style but it’s actually creamy egg custard drenched with cold prawn rendang and topped with tobiko – extra umaminess.

If come with a group of friends with a need for some booze intoxication (before 10.30pm), the hand-torn Creamy Burrata ($29) comes deliciously handy. While you might scream ‘where is the local flavour in this Italian dish?’, the secret is in the extra ingredients – fried laksa leaves, crispy rice paper and tomato coconut chutney. All added together gives a stronger punch than the usual vanilla-style burrata.

There’s alot of grounds to cover for the main courses. For one there is the Crispy Silkie Chicken ($26), which comes jet black and fried. No joke. While its supposed to give the surprise when served, and the drumstick is tender and well-marinated.
You get more bang for your bucks with the Seafood Laksa ($22), which comes choked full of prawns, mussels, clams, and the wok-kissed linguine with house-made laksa sauce hits the right flavour spot.

My personal favourite is the Orange Pork Ribs ($28) – very meaty, tender and explosive citrusy flavours. The pork brisket bones are slow cooked till gelatinous perfection and well charred. For the Charcoal Grilled Vegetables Platter (half – $18), not really a fan of it except that this would be the go-to for the vegetarians.

As for desserts, creativity and sweet deliciousness comingles quite well, especially the Sticky Date Huat Kueh ($12) and berry-loaded Sour Fruit Slump ($12). For the Kopi Gao ($12) – which is a sort of grass jelly poured with a super gao (thick and bitter) black coffee – I am thinking why I would have this after dinner, isn’t dessert supposed to be a sweet ending? But really depends on the individuals so I reserve my reservation.

Review: LUMOS RAY Home Projector

Ever since we got our own place, we have been wanting to get a home projector so that we can build a mini cinema at home. We went looking around for one but gave up eventually as they are either too bulky or too ugly.

Slowly, the idea disappeared until we found LUMOS. A lot of celebrities and influencers were raving about it online so it was really hard to give LUMOS a miss. We did our research and saw how compact and light their projectors are but we were stuck between choosing RAY or AURO.

James, being the more techy person at home decided to go with RAY after checking up on the specifications. For a normal-sized place like ours, RAY would suit our needs better.

Prices start from $199 for LUMOS RAY. We got the SMART version that comes with WiFi, YouTube & Netflix plus a RIZE stand that cost $359 in total. I don’t know what we can do with it if it doesn’t come with SMART since our objective is to watch movies online. We were glad that we stuck to our decision!

Delivery was FAST. It came a few days after the order. I was taken aback by how light and portable the device is. I expected it to be small and slightly heavy (even an iPhone Pro Max with an impact phone case seems heavier) but I could lift it easily with one hand.

RAY comes in a simple squarish design. As my home theme is all about black, white & grey, the design of RAY fits in nicely.

Some specifications of LUMOS RAY includes:

Native Resolution: 720p (Support 1080p)
Speaker: 4Ω3W x 2 (Dolby Audio Support)
Contrast Ratio: 3000:1
Screencast: Inbuilt Airplay/AirScreen app for iPhones & Samsung Phones, Miracast for Android phones
Memory & Storage: RAM 1GB + ROM 8GB

Please click here for the full specifications.

It did not take James more than 10 minutes to set it up in our bedroom with the RIZE stand. He even bought a wireless keyboard to type instead of controlling the device with their remote control. Lazy people like him should consider getting the keyboard too. Lol.

We could not place the projector in the middle due to space constraints so we placed it at the side. Luckily the screen can be adjusted accordingly. It feels as though we were in the cinema, if not, even better than a cinema since we were so comfy lying in our bed!

Our verdict? We are so glad that we got this and watching movies at home has never been comfier!

The Rough Patch After Giving Birth

UPDATE:

While she was engaging in these shameless acts (eg. calling my James while I was in labour, using her work email to contact my husband asking him to meet up with her to listen to her bad mouth her own husband, pestering James non-stop), she herself was pregnant in her first trimester carrying a baby boy.

————————

I do not believe in airing dirty laundry but the purpose of this post here is to voice out what a married woman with  kid can do to another pregnant woman. Women support women – really?

I am not afraid of voicing out what I have gone through and I hope that this inspires people to voice out how they really feel, perhaps, not to the public, but to someone close to them. Speaking out helps relieve mental stress.

.

.

People have been asking me, “Why are you so skinny now?” and “What about that homewrecker? What is the whole story?”. I think it’s time I spoke up.

Disclaimer: My weight loss has nothing to do with this incident. All the credit for getting back in shape this quickly goes to my breastfeeding journey.

I’ll be honest, life hasn’t been easy juggling with a newborn and managing my roller-coaster emotions. Let’s just say that I am lucky that depression hasn’t hit me (yet). I like to think that I am a strong-minded person and depression just isn’t my cup of tea, but then again… who knows, maybe I really am suffering from post-natal depression.

Now… where do I even begin?

I want to remember this rough patch for life so here I am, back on my blog with a personal post. I need an outlet to vent. I yearn for someone to hear me out and I know that a lot of my followers on IG are following the bits and pieces of the homewrecker story closely because I get a huge spike in my IG stories views whenever I hinted something about her. Even till today, I still get DMs from them requesting for more updates, for photos of the homewrecker and more. A bunch of you also keep bugging me on this blogpost.

Look at this innocent newborn… someone wanted to make him fatherless.. My heart ached for quite a while, not for myself for having to go through 10 months of pregnancy, 20 hours of labour or 6 weeks of recovery but for him. An ex-staff of James is out there, asking him to leave this baby for her. What if he grow up without a proper family? I have also come to terms that if he have to, he will, I can, and I will do my best for him.

Here is what exactly happened..

Shortly after I gave birth (while I was still undergoing confinement), I found out that James’ ex-staff (let’s just call her C here) asked James to divorce me so that he can be with her. Keep in mind that at the time of her ridiculous proposition to James, I was in my third trimester. She said this to him knowing that I was 1.5 months away from labour and she obviously wanted my baby to be FATHERLESS.

The gist is, there is absolutely something fundamentally wrong with C.

2 years ago

I warned C when she kept pestering James for her food cravings, incessantly checking on the installation of our house’s water dispenser filter and trying to insert herself into our lives in whatever minute way you can think of. I knew that she was an EXTREMELY needy person because my cousin who interned at the same company as her told me about her needy character.

James told me to ignore her as well, but then there were the times where James was waiting around for me to end work/an event, and she would “accompany” him to wait for me. I thought that a mom would usually rush home to look after her daughter and family after work? She certainly looked free.. Free enough to accompany and pester another married man.

When James needed a Tupperware for our house, she would appear with a brand new Tupperware the next day. The level of seducing or sucking up to her boss was certainly beyond………… Of course, I threw it away. Including the little Star Wars toys that she bought for his car and our house warming..

There was an incident where James had a team bonding outing with his colleagues and he got semi-drunk. While this was happening, I was just nearby attending my own team bonding outing. The sweet thing about James is, he enjoys going home together so it was always I wait for him or he wait for me to end kind of thing. My side ended earlier so I went over to wait for James to drive both of us home. His wallet and keys were right beside me, between us, on the sofa. When the waitress came in with the bill, instead of asking me for James’ card, she reached out for his wallet automatically as if it was the only right thing for her to do – taking her boss’ wallet like it belonged to her or her husband. I regretted not snatching it back even though I was extremely unhappy. Who was she to open my husband’s wallet when his lawfully wedded wife (i.e. me) was sitting right next to the wallet? I lost all respect for her after this incident since she had none for me either.

I was upset but I knew her character well (she is known to be the needy type), so I chose to let the incident slide thinking that maybe this is just in character for her. Maybe she does this to every other guy in the office. I tried so hard to give her the benefit of the doubt, but every time I look the other way, she just escalates her behaviour.

There were also other times where she went out drinking with other people, probably got high and decided that it is appropriate to call James for fun. For??????????????????? Why are you harassing a married guy? Why is this married woman with a kid pestering my husband????? Why is she always asking him out to join her group of girlfriends??????

Whenever she drops James a reminder on something, be it work related or not, she would go “What will you do without me right? :P”. I even have screenshots of these. Hello, my husband did not work to wherever he is, just because you are in his life. You should keep your flirting texts and your pants to your husband.

I think C over estimated her position.

The devil in me came out on one night when she dropped James a text while I was sitting beside him at 1am. Holy 1am.

“I can’t take it when you give me cold shoulders”

She sent this WhatsApp message to him at 1am. Who even sends this kind of message at 1am?

I was angry and hurt. To think that other woman (a married woman to make things worse) was out there losing sleep because of my husband?? What was she even trying to achieve? It was like she was having a monologue with herself because James could not be bothered to reply. WTFFF? I went into a rage. What exactly does she want from her boss?

Mind you, she is “happily” married with a daughter.

I confronted her via WhatsApp and she assured me that this was a misunderstanding. Do you think I would buy that? Of course not. What did I do next? Nothing. All I wanted was to let her know that I know what she was doing behind my back – trying her luck with my husband. I was so tempted to warn her husband about this and till this day, I regret not warning him earlier.

She left James’ company on Oct 2019, and I thought that was the last time I would have to tolerate her antics but she kept updating James on her job. Have to travel to Thailand for training….. her pay… her life…… no more feelings for her husband… For?

 

Fast forward to my pregnancy

In August 2020, after I found out that I was pregnant, she called James to help her with a referral letter for a job interview (Yes, barely half a year into the previous job, she wanted a change of environment again). I did not think too much of it despite the things she did in the past. To be honest, I’ve never seen myself as a petty wife. Neither am I the kind of wife who would interfere with my husband’s job or try to control who he hangs out with because I am independent as fuck and I trust my husband. But little did I know that that woman was back full strength this time around, to pester James.

The referral letter was a façade she used as an excuse to start texting James frequently again.. She kept asking him personal things like where he was or if they can meet up – she will drive over to meet him, at his office building during his lunch hours (not her lunch hours, but I guess that is one of the perks for doing a sales job) or places where James would be meeting me.

To James, he met up with her to catch up with an old colleague and friend. But I can’t say that she had the same intentions as James right from the start. To her, this was the start of her scheme to make James her backup plan (I will explain this part later). Her behavior bordered on being a full-blown stalker, she would do concerning things like drive over to look for James whenever she gets a text reply from him or attempt to love-bomb him with little gifts while pursuing him. Sadly for her, her unwanted gifts would always end up in the rubbish bin after they part (I did not throw them away this time around. James did).

She would over share uncomfortable personal information with James during their catch-up, even private things like how sexually active she is with her husband, not sleeping around during her flying days or how her dad may be having an affair with another women. This honestly just makes me question her motives, what are you trying to pull? Are you trying to fish for sympathy or justify that it’s okay for James to cheat with you because cheating is so common that even your dad does it?

If she is fishing for sympathy, I don’t how she can be so blind to her own hypocrisy. If your dad having an affair is so painful that you can use it as a “pity me” card, then how can you knowingly try to inflict this pain on me too?

She was doing this behind my back despite knowing that I was pregnant. Even her close friend asked her if she knew that I was pregnant.

The truth is how can she not know? She was busy stalking my IG stories when James was ignoring her – from my maternity shoots to staycations. Probably trying to find out why was her messages to him were not answered. She even quarreled with James for him not replying her.

“Why did you ghost me?”

“Why are you ignoring me?”

If I were to put it crudely, she offered her body to James, not once, but multiple times at hospital carparks. She KNEW I was pregnant, but she still continued. I was absolutely disgusted. She is a mom herself; how can she do this to another pregnant woman? Even crazy enough to the extent of asking James to divorce me for her because she was going crazy with her husband? Can I just say that I ought to be thankful that my husband was not dumb enough to fall for her trap? Divorce me? Lol. If she can win James over, sure! Be my guest. I have no interest to keep someone whom I can lose so easily by my side because I am not as needy as her. Life goes on even if I have to raise my kid alone.

I also found out about the conversations that she had with James and I do not understand how can someone badmouth their own husband to this extent? Not just once, but multiple times! She also kept stressing that she would have divorced her husband if not for the fact that they have a daughter. Probably trying to drop James some hints here. I will not disclose any information shared about her husband out of respect.

I felt extremely disgusted as I read through the conversations. I think her mind and heart were filled with James. Probably TOO OBSESSED with him. Always confessing to him, telling how much she misses him and the most unforgettable sentence that I saw was “wish you were here instead of my husband” when she was on a staycation/trip with her husband and daughter.

Luckily, her husband found out about everything before things could get more serious. I guess her husband suspected something was wrong when he discovered the text messages she was sending via her WhatsApp web tab on her laptop when she was out. She is such a capable Pharma sales rep that she can juggle meeting doctors and doing her sales job while spamming unwanted text messages and chasing after married men – including wanting to meet up again and again during working hours.

I like to think that her husband is a nice guy, he didn’t want to implicate me in this situation, so he did not reach out to me. Maybe it was because he felt that there was no need to expose a pregnant lady to such drama. After all, ignorance is bliss, the less you know the happier you are.

However, there’s always two sides to a coin, could it be that he was trying to protect his wife because he is still in love with her? Maybe he did not want to put her at risk since I could expose her at any time on my Instagram? I don’t know, but I chose to believe in the nicer side of him. He has been very nice so far.

I reached out to him instead during my confinement, after finding out that she was crazy enough to ask James to divorce me when I was so close to labour. He knew about the things she did. I asked him if he knew about how she asked James to leave me when I was close to labour. He did not know. He apologized for it on her behalf and said “that period was crazy, you know maybe she needed a back up plan” but I personally felt that he was a victim since his wife seems ready to divorce him for James.

I was mind blown. How can someone, how can a married woman, be this crazy over a married guy? Why does it have to be my husband? Why does she want to break up my family when I have an unborn child in my tummy? For a woman as vicious as her, even sending her to hell as punishment would be letting her off too easily.

She did not stop harassing James even after her husband confronted her. She was asked to block James everywhere, from her social media to her messaging apps. However, as soon as she is out of her husband’s sights, she would unblock James and call/text him to meet. Do you know what’s worse? She had the cheeks to call James when I was in labour (in the hospital) and  went “your baby is coming out any time hor…?”

She also loves updating James on their current status.

“Oh we went for marriage counselling”..

“Things look like it is improving but it is not”..

“I don’t know”.. “Not sure about the feelings”..

“Wah, the marriage counselling is expensive”

“Can talk? I cannot find anyone to talk”

I was pissed, knowing that James was still willing to provide a listening ear despite her ridiculous and indecent acts.

After labour

She could not reach James on all the messaging apps so she dropped him an email via her work email. Isn’t this the best way of showing “when there is a will, there’s a way”?

At this point, even her own husband couldn’t trust her anymore. He turned on the GPS on her phone to try curbing her cheating, so she attempted to plan her cheating routes carefully. By cheating routes, yes, she still wanted to meet James. The email was disgusting. She roleplayed the entire scenario. The email was supposedly meant for a doctor (but the actual recipient was James) and in the email, she was a sales rep trying to fix a meeting with James to sell him some drugs. The email certainly does not look like an affair or anything but…. is James a doctor that she was covering? How fishy. She used her work email because her husband probably did not expect her to cheat again/ or cheat using her work email.

I called her to confront her but all she had to say for herself was “Oh… we very long never talk already.. I was just overly friendly”.

Biatch. Offering herself to my husband is just her being overly friendly? If “offering” is just being friendly than what counts as crossing the line to her? Car sex in her car like what she wanted? WOW.

Of course, I revealed everything to her husband too. Her husband still forgave her. Good for her I guess. Maybe he is a saint. I, for sure, would not be able to put up with the fact that my wife attempted to cheat on me and chased after another guy this hard. He probably did it out of love – her love for their daughter and I salute that. That is a level of humiliation I would never be able to put up with but I respect him 200% for this.

I don’t deny that I went crazy after this incident and life has never been the same since then. You may think that my family is still perfectly happy but there are just so many things that I can’t put into words. I was hurt, I was hurt so badly even when James was not dumb enough to fall into her trap. I was extremely angry that he replied to C in such a cordial manner even though she asked him to leave me for her. I know that guys do not usually care much about these things but deep down, I wanted him to tell her off as a form of respect for me. She pestered him all the way back when she was still in the same company,  and when I was pregnant, and up till my baby was born!

Imagine how I felt when I found out? Every last single interaction she had with my husband, and all the possible worst-case scenarios played on loop in my mind. I was vulnerable and still recovering from childbirth. I could barely even sit properly.. Could I share all these thoughts and emotions with another person at that point in time? No, I could not. What if I got everything wrong?

What did I do during that period? I pretended to be happy on social media but I was slowly dying on the inside. Every day was a torture. It was living hell. Why do I have to go through all these right after giving birth?

I grew up in a happy family. You fall in love, get married, start a family, and grow old together. However, my view of marriage has not changed even after what she did. She can continue to openly make comments like how CHEATING IS VERY COMMON to people around her. But she won’t change my beliefs.

We are both women, but look at how different our values and morale are 🙂

I am very thankful of my supportive parents during the tough period. I am not saying that things are easier now but at least, I know that they are right behind me. My parents and James were beside me when I confronted her over the phone call. My in-laws were saying that we showed too much happy moments online, making her envy and jealous at the same time since she was extremely unhappy with her own marriage. But it really takes someone’s mental state to be this special to do whatever she had done, especially involving an unborn child.

We live in a different generation from our parents and grandparents, maybe extra-marital affairs and divorces are just more common now. Who am I to judge?

But for now, I hope that I will find peace soon.

To all the women who are facing the same issue, or if your family was wrecked by another lady, know your worth. You deserve nothing but the best. God has his plans and his reasons. Sometimes we are supposed to go through things so that we learn lessons.

“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.”  –Matthew 7:12

Burgs Opens Fast Casual Burger Concept at 313@Somerset

Burgs Opens Fast Casual Burger Concept at 313@Somerset
By Alex
Burgs (not burp, mind you) has recently debut in 313@Somerset, dishing gourmet burgers at wallet-friendly prices. It’s the founders Indra and Ridzuan first fast casual burger concept right in the heart of the city – the most atas place with expensive food – so the accessible price range is greatly appreciated. Expect new menu with new items available exclusively at this outlet, something the 4 previous outlets doesn’t have!

For us we had the Beef Bacon Cheese Burger ($7.50 single, $10.50 double), followed by Crispy Fish Burger ($7.90 single, $10.90 double). What swept off our feet is not just the battered Alaskan pollack fish or the handcrafted beef patty or the American Cheese – although they’re still tasty – it’s the buns: so soft and pillowy its brioche-like. The buns are freshly baked from original recipe, which to me means its pure divine.

My favourite though, is the Nuggies with Cheese Dip ($5.90). Each nugget is made with real chicken chunks. They are crunchy, flavourful and unstoppable, paired with the cheese dip that packs a sublime spiciness.

For the dessert, our favourite is the Lotus Biscoff Soft Serve ($4.90) and the Lotus Biscoff Shake ($5.90). Its not overly sweet which we are kinda afraid of, its smoother in texture till the bites of Lotus biscuits hits.
 

Opening Special: Free Chef’s Special Burger Drop
To commemorate the milestone, Burgs unveil an exclusive Chili Cheese Burger that’s off the menu and available for a limited time only.
Everyday for the first week of its opening, one Chili Cheese Burger will be given free to 100 customers who purchase a set meal from Burgs 313@somerset. Promo valid from 21 Aug to 27 Aug at Burgs 313@Somerset. T&Cs apply.

Get Inclusive with New Dishes Inspired by Diverse Races @ White Restaurant
By Alex
Here’s a new menu that could leave you some food for thought.
Inspired by the diversity of his neighbours and friends at his own HDB home, founder Uncle Tay King Huak of the White Restaurant inspired the team to create a series of new dishes based on their respective cultures’ signature recipes to celebrate the upcoming National Day. What’s pertinent is this is the first time the restaurant premiering dishes outside of its signature White Beehoon.

In the spirit of Singapore, get ready to feast on the new festive items which includes –

  • Fresh Prawn in Chili Crab – very fresh, juicy big prawn, drenched in succulent chili crab sauce
  • Chicken Tikka Masala – explosively spicy, yet savoury enough to make me keep eating
  • Deep Fried Mackerel with Tumeric – added fried crispy shredded codfish skin gives an additional crunch
  • Cauliflower Cheese Bake –  although to me its somewhat lacking in flavour as compared to the other dishes, its colourful to look and your body will thank you for it

And of course, the king of flavours, the Mala White Beehoon is back by popular demand. First served in 2019 for a limited time only, the fiery spiciness from the Sichuan peppercorn is very spicy but shiok for me. For those who wants savoury carb that gives a mouth-numbing kick, this is definitely a dish for you.

 

Sets for Sharing
From 15 July – 31 August 2021, get a taste of all the above in specialty sets made for sharing. The National Day 2-3 pax set serves the Fresh Prawn in Chili Crab Sauce, Chicken Tikka Masala and Deep-Fried Mackerel with Tumeric with up to 3 portions of butterfly pea rice for only $52.

ClickAfood (CAF) – New Pastel-themed Café by Hong Junyang

ClickAfood (CAF) – New Pastel-themed Café by Hong Junyang
By Alex
Café hoppers, here’s one pastel-themed café in the north east you might want to check out.
Opened by Singer-songwriter turned serial F&B entrepreneur Hong Junyang, ClickAFood (also known as CAF for short) introduced five tantalising culinary concepts under one roof. The Instagrammable café is decked in aesthetically pleasing pastel shades, and the food and drinks are affordably priced so budget-conscious students can consider this as a next destination point for meet ups with friends!

 

CAF’s menu is made up of these main cuisines: Korean (Korean Mama), Thai (Thaitanium), Local (168 发), and Western (Fig & Fiddle). This allows everyone to get their preferred choice of cuisine so no fighting for food necessary.

The fifth menu is the aptly named 喝 HE where you can find a concise drinks menu – from bubble tea to coffee. CAF also uses specialty coffee beans from PPP Coffee for the perfect Joe. For us we had the Mango Coconut ($5.50) and Red Bean Lover ($5.50). Thankfully its muted and not too sweet.

We take on the big bowl first. The Seoul Army Stew ($19.90) from Korean Mama, serves 2. While its simple, its really decently priced for its quantity. This abundant pot of bubbling goodness choke full with chicken hotdogs, tofu, kimchi, Korean fishcakes and assorted vegetables and ramyeon.
If you are feeling peckish, can add on more items like chicken slices, beef slices and other things.

For me this Neo Burger ($9.90) from Fig & Fiddle satisfies me thoroughly. A massive golden battered dory fish fillet sandwiched between two buttered buns with a smear of tartar sauce and Colby cheese. I got hooked by this very toothsome burger easily. If you need some greens can consider load on an extra $1.90 or make it a meal with thin-cut shoestring fries for just $2.90.
Assorted toppings are also available

 

The 168 Nasi lemak ($8.90) from 168 发 comes with 2 pieces of crispy chicken wings, ikan bilis, crunchy peanuts, homemade sambal chili (their Indonesian home recipe_, sunny side up and blue pea coconut rice. Its decently priced and quite simple, and it’s the sole option under the 168发 with limited portions daily.

 

Since we couldn’t visit Thailand now, the Crab Meat Omelette Fried Rice ($10.90) from Thaitanium sparks temporary joy for me. A special off-the menu item that you have to specially request from staff, the blanket of omelette is studded with crab meat chunks, served with traditional homemade Thai Chili sauce on the side to add the extra oomph.

 

CAF is also offering islandwide delivery, free delivery with minimum spend of $88 within 8km of the café on iMakan and via Whatsapp at 8764 7544 only. Also available on FoodPanda, GrabFood, Deliveroo and Oddle.

New Tsuta Japanese Dining @ 313 Somerset Store, Available for Delivery & Takeaway

New Tsuta Japanese Dining  @ 313 Somerset Store, Available for Delivery & Takeaway
By Alex
If you are in love of Tsuta Michelin-starred signature truffle oil ramen, then you will definitely enjoy Tsuta’s new extended dining concept. First launched in their recently opened restaurant at 313 Somerset, the menu features extensive range of new items, which includes the makis, sushi taco, temaki sushi cones, tempura, croquettes, rice bowls, hamburgs and more. Alongside all eight signature ramen flavours.
So for those folks who prefers a non-ramen Japanese cuisine there’s no reason not to head over and try their latest creations! Here are some of the featured items we tried and raved.

 

Starting with the maki rolls, Tsuta has introduced novel flavours like the Salted Egg Roll ($16.80) and the Avocado Ebi Roll ($16.80). While looks deceptively close to the traditional maki rolls we are so used to, the avocado roll is layered with signature housemade sweet chili mayo sauce and tobiko so you will have light hints of burning sensation felt on your tongue. There’s also the classic renditions to choose from, like the Mango Ebi Roll ($16.80) and the Miso California Roll ($13.80).

For those who wants abit of the crunch just for mouthfeels, the Assorted Fry Platter features a few fried breaded items like black tiger prawn, scallop, assorted seafood and vegetables. It’s a decent size sharing portion for 2.

The heart-warming Wagyu Beef Don ($19.80) contains pan-seared Wagyu beef with house made steak sauce, topped with onsen egg and garlic chips. If I am in a rush at 313 Somerset, I will probably order this because it satiates my hunger quickly and the beef almost melt-in-mouth

A steer away from the usual seafood and a particular dish which I fancy, the Wagyu Beef Roll ($21.80) comes with a slab of bitey, meaty prime US Wagyu steak, with a light drizzle of steak sauce. While red meat can be easily jelat, the thinly sliced wagyu paired the seasonings makes it not too heavy and much less chewy.

 

The new menu also features the likes of Sushi Cones (Uni Temaki is a must try, air flown from Hokkaido at $18!), grills like Seafood Okonomiyaki ($16.80) and Beef Hamburg ($13.80). Tsuta Japanese Dining dishes are now available for delivery and takeaway from their latest store at 313 Somerset or VivoCity.
