FOMO

It’s official. FOMO, a new hipster food court @ Sultan Gate has opened its doors to the world! Whatever preconceived notions you have about food courts, throw those out of the window because FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out indeed) was built on Instagrammability. No seriously, every inch is picturesque and just begging to be part of your social media archives.

I was lucky enough to be invited for their media launch so here’s the low-down on ALL 7 OF THEIR VENDORS. If you’re thinking normal kopitiam fare like Ban Mian, Chicken Rice and Fish Soup, you’re not going to find them at FOMO fo sure.

fomo my wholly

Mr Wholly

Fancy some Louisiana style seafood? I tried their Seafood Nasi Lemak and trust me when I say it’s a Nasi Lemak on steroids. Other than the fact that they serve everything fresh, the highlight for me was the “secret sambal sauce” they drizzled over the prawns. This sauce packs a punch with strong seafood flavors that accentuates the dining experience ttm (to the max).

The Nasi Lemak set costs $8.90.

fomo poke doke

Poke Doke

Following their success at Millennia Walk, Poke Doke extends their reach with this new outlet at FOMO. With numerous Poke bowl places vying for market share, how does Poke Bowl stay competitive? The answer lies in their toppings. 30 different varieties in fact! Enjoy the freshest fish at an affordable price. There’s no denying the health benefits of Poke Bowls either.

Their Signature Poke Bowl is priced at $14.

fomo zamza

Zamza

From the people that brought you Jimoto Ya, helmed by Chef Nobumasa Mieda of Michelin-Starred Kaiseki Restaurant, Mieda. Zamza doesn’t disappoint with its oh-so-tender chicken. I tried both the Donburi and Chicken Based Ramen. For the Donburi, I loved the Chicken Yakitori and the Chicken Skin Yakitori. I was a little skeptical when I saw the Chicken Ramen though (comes in clear and creamy broth options) but the first bite of the chicken meat and all my reservations went out the door. It’s just pure bliss.

The Chicken Ramen is priced at $10

fomo kane mochi

Kane Mochi

What’s good here? The Mochi of course! Diners are spoilt for choice with a wide range of assorted flavors to choose from. I went with Matcha, Thai Ice Tea & Taro. That lovely ice cream interior blends perfectly with the light and fluffy Mochi exterior. They’re as good as they look and you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world!

The Mochi Platter costs $7.80 served on an extremely instagrammable wood board with mixed fruits.

fomo kakak kentang

you can’t really see the giant sized potato balls BUT THEY’RE THERE, undercover

Kakak Kentang

If you want to feel full, don’t want to splurge but yet want to have something tasty, Kakak Kentang is definitely your go to place. Imagine, a Bergedil (potato ball) the size of TWO OF MY FISTS COMBINED half submerged in a savory broth for less than 10 bucks. That’s mad.

I prefer the Chicken option (Chikabom) as it comes with an extremely spicy chilli and taste like Mee Soto sans the mee. The beef version (Bombastik) was a little too rich for my palette and leaning closer to the sweeter side of things.

The regular sized option costs $6.90

While its bigger sized counterpart costs $9.90

I recommend sharing the big one with at least 4 people.

fomo the don

The Don

The pimply, young, adolescent me probably re-watched The Godfather like 5 times in my life and I was pretty stoked that they gave Mafia/Gangsta references to almost all their dishes. I tried their best sellers, The Al Capone which is essentially a Laksa Pasta and Call Me Meaty, a meat pizza.

I have no complaints. They do their pizza dough from scratch so instead of leaving the crusts like how I do with most pizzas, I walloped this crust down with relish!

With prices like $13.90 for the Al Capone

And $14.90 for a 10 inch Call Me Meaty, it’s definitely “an offer you can’t refuse”.

fomo chops grill & sides

Chops Grill & Sides

In a carnivorous mood? Get the XXL Platter and you’ll get a meat galore! Cajun Chicken, Chicken Breast, Fried Breaded Fish, Grilled Salmon, Ribeye Steak and BBQ Lambshank! I’ve tried everything and I’m telling you, the steak is the cash cow (pun intended) for this place. It’s juicy, tender and just a delight with every bite.

The XXL Platter goes for $59.90

While The Grilled Steak is a cool $12.90 (Priced a lot lower than some places we know and I’m not going to mention names)

fomo chill out relax

Chill Out, Relax

If you’re not there for some grub, drag a couple of mates and just chill out while having a tower (or two) of Asahi or Kronenbourg. Play a game of beer pong even!

fomo wine

If beer isn’t your jam, they even sell bottles of Spanish Blue Wine @ $85 nett!

Asahi towers – $55 for 1 $90 for 2

Kronenbourg towers – $65 for 1 $110 for 2

fomo beer pong

FOMO is fast becoming a gathering area for expats, youngsters and office peeps. Considering its strategic location, it’s just a matter of time before they’ll have to start a reservation system. Pretty unheard for a food court yeah? It’ll happen, mark my words. Beat the crowd and check them out soon!

Labor Day Long Weekend Eat-tivity

James Chan

Tonight marks the start of the LABOR DAY LONG WEEKEND! Time to PARTAYE! I don’t know about you, I for one could use another break. The week has been pretty shit to me.

I’m tempted to use up these few days by just going on a “nap marathon” but then again, that’s such a waste and I have to eat! I’ve handpicked a couple of food joints that caught my eye. Might be your cup of tea, might not, you pick and choose.

Labor Day Long Weekend Stickies Bar for drinks

Stickies Bar

11 Keng Cheow St, #01-10, Singapore 059608

If you’re looking for somewhere to pre-drink before hitting a weekend party, look no further. Stickies has you covered. I think there are a couple of times I actually miss said party after getting too hammered here.

They’ve introduced a revolutionary concept called “Beer O’clock”. How it works is simple, a pint of beer/glass of house pour at 6pm to 6.59pm goes for $6, 7pm to 7.59pm, $7. So on and so forth. The best part? It starts at 2pm.

Recently, Stickies introduced a new food menu to the public and I’ll be featuring them in “The Weekly Glutton” soon but if you want my advice, order the Spicy Chicken Quesadilla. I fully approve.

Labor Day Long Weekend El Spice for Mexican and Indian fusion food

El Spice Bistro

407 JALAN BESAR, Singapore 209012

El Spice Bistro just recently opened and I haven’t had the chance to sample their food yet but their dishes really look promising. Mexican and North Indian fusion cuisine isn’t new in Singapore. They’re two cultures that really complement one another gastronomically so I’m not surprised.

Their online reviews seem promising. I’ll blog about them in “The Weekly Glutton” when I’ve tasted their food.

Labor Day Long Weekend poke doke for healthy and delicious food

Poke Doke

#01-95 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Blvd, Singapore 039596

Another eatery I have yet to try but definitely will visit. The poke bowl trend in Singapore is flourishing (I think there are close to 14 different poke bowl options to choose from now).

For those who do not know what a poke (pronounced po-keh) bowl is, it’s an addictive mixture of sushi rice, cubed raw fish (sashimi) and a variation of sauces and seasoning. Not only is the poke bowl healthy but extremely delicious and great post work out food.

Labor Day Long Weekend durian cakes at Durian Fiesta @ Goodwood Park

Durian Fiesta @ Goodwood Park

22 Scotts Road, Singapore 228221

I’m pretty sure no one’s going to get food poisoning this time round. They wouldn’t allow it to happen twice.

Here’s the article from the Straits Times if you don’t know what happened last year

http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/goodwood-park-bakery-suspended-after-76-food-poisoning-cases-linked-to-durian-pastries

Made from your King of Durians – D24 and Mao Shan Wang, be spoiled for choice with a total of 14 different durian enriched pastries. I’m gunning for the Starry Starry Night Ice-Cream Cake. Imagine a thick and rich Durian ice-cream center just waiting to explode in your mouth. SOLD.

 

ON AN UNRELATED NOTE

Labor Day Long Weekend art book fair for cheap art books

Singapore Art Book Fair

Gillman Barracks, 9 Lock Rd, Singapore 108932

Friday, April 28 2017 10am – 8pm

Saturday, April 29 2017 10am – 8pm

Sunday, April 30 2017 10am – 7pm

To mix things up a little I’m just throwing this in for you arts people (like me). I think my house could use a couple more art books strategically lying around to impress people.

There will be a mesh of local and global exhibitors with a wide range of products (catalogues, art books, zines, art pieces) to offer.

Admission is free, seems like a great way to spend your Saturday or Sunday morning with a date (or alone, “there, there, don’t be sad, someone will come along one day”).
