How The Heck Does Eggs ‘n Things Make That Insane Whipped Cream On Them Pancakes?

James Chan

Eggs ‘n Things

Following their recent opening at the new wing of Plaza Singapura, with a name like Eggs ‘n Things, I couldn’t help but feel excited at the prospect of a high protein meal.

Eggs ‘n Things decor

The eatery couldn’t be any prettier with a strong Hawaiian theme evident to anyone who walks by. Instagram feeds are definitely going to explode with their pictures for sure. If you haven’t heard of them, let’s just say they’re really popular in Harujuku, Tokyo Japan.

Eggs ‘n Things Omelette
The Food

All their ingredients arrive fresh from Japan and they make most things in-house. I’m told that Japanese eggs are the best as they are tastier and a whole lot richer compared to our local eggs. You can easily spot a Japanese egg by their orange-hued egg yolk. Slurps.

Eggs ‘n Things Surf and Turf and Eggs

Meats & Eggs – Surf ‘n Turf ‘n Eggs, $27.90

You can choose how you want your eggs done but I went with scrambled. Nothing really stood out for me other than the prawns being a tad saltier than I would like them to be. It’s also the priciest item on the menu (probably because they use organic beef).

Eggs ‘n Things Spinach and Bacon Eggs Benedict
Eggs Benedicts – Spinach ‘n Bacon, $19.90

Just like that, a star is born. Everything about this dish is PERFECT. The bagel (made in-house), the pasteurized poached eggs with rich orange colored yolk and the bits of bacon strategically placed in the spinach. Wow. It’s a real eye opener and that’s saying something considering my Chinese heritage (I have small eyes).

Eggs ‘n Things Potato and Bacon Omelette
Omelets – Potato, Bacon ‘n Cheese, $19.90

This pales in comparison to the Spinach ‘n Bacon Eggs Benedict. There’s no going back after you’ve had a taste of heaven. I’m pretty sure this is why this dish didn’t sit very well with my palette. I felt it was a little dry to be honest. For the exact same price, I recommend the Eggs Benedict for sure.

Eggs ‘n Things Strawberry Pancakes
Pancakes – Fresh Strawberry, Whipped Cream and Macadamia Nuts, $19.90

Oh my goodness. Definitely the winner of the day (it was a close fight with Eggs Benedict). What won my heart or stomach rather was surprisingly the Whipped Cream. It was light, refreshing and just highly addictive. The pancakes themselves were fluffy and one of the better pancakes I’ve had in my life. If you want to take a picture of this dish in all its glory, you’d want to do it immediately as soon as it arrives. The tower of whipped cream loses its structural integrity really quickly (it starts collapsing in less than 5 minutes). This is a MUST ORDER.

Pair them pancakes with a series of syrups that they make in-house. Flavours include Guava (unique af), coconut and your standard maple. I personally loved the coconut.

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Hell yeah. The Eggs Benedict and the Pancakes are more than enough reason for me to revisit Eggs ‘n Things multiple times for sure. Also, based off their success in Japan (people can queue for hours to have a taste), I would say they can expect the same level of success here in Singapore. So check them out before things get too crowded!

Tapas Club – Authentic Spanish Tastes on Orchard Road

admin

About Tapas

When we talk about Spanish food, most people will usually think about tapas. The word ‘tapa’ has the origin from the verb ‘tapar’, which means ‘to cover’ in Spanish. There are many versions of the origins of tapas. The most common story being serving food with the cover or lid to keep the flies away.

Tapas Club Chipirones con Huevo Frito (baby squid with fried egg)

Chipirones con Huevo Frito (baby squid with fried egg)

Back to present day, tapas can be found aplenty in bars or a restaurants as snacks. But they can make you full if you have a few portions or several with friends. Tapas can be cold dishes like cheese (queso), cold cuts (jamon, chorizo, salchichon, etc.), or hot dishes like tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette), gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimp). In Spain, a tapas bar can be just a tiny hole in the wall.  However, the variety of food will depend on the region that you are in.

Tapas in Singapore

Before Tapas Club opened in Singapore, many authentic Spanish restaurants were already established here. Places such as Binomio, FOC, Catalunya (closed in 2016), etc. Spanish cuisine was still relatively unknown to many Singaporeans and lagged behind French and Italian in terms of popularity.

Fret not, my fellow readers, Tapas Club has opened in the prime shopping area of Singapore for quite some time and I am glad to inform you that the food here is really nice and the price is wallet-friendly too – starting from $5 – $25.

Tapas Club is run by Chef Jose Alonso (from Binomio) and Chef Manuel Berganza (One Michelin Star Chef). The restaurant serves authentic Spanish tapas at a comparatively low price (Singapore’s standard). I have visited the restaurant twice and have had nothing but praise for the two chefs for serving yummy and authentic Spanish food in a very casual setting.

La Comida

Tapas Club Sardinitas con Salsa Espinaler

Sardinitas con Salsa Espinaler (baby sardines with Espinaler sauce)

I tried different dishes in my two visits and all I can say that all the food were yummy. In fact, I think the overall quality of all the dishes is even higher than tapas you get from a typical bar in Spain. My favourite dishes are Sardinitas con Salsa Espinaler (baby sardines with Espinaler sauce), Pluma de Cerdo (pork shoulder), Pulpo a la Brasa (grilled octopus) and Fideua Negra (squid ink noodle paella). For the desserts, I had Crema Catalana con Sorbete (creme brûlée with sorbet) in my first visit but it was not as memorable as the food so I didn’t order the dessert again in my second visit.

If you are a fan of Jamon Iberico like me, don’t miss the Jamon Iberico or the cold cuts platter. If you order the platter, you will also get Pan con Tomate (toast bread with tomato) on the house. This is similar to the one you can get at FOC and if you don’t order the cold cuts platter, I still think you should order this dish. It’s just $5. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

Verdict

Tapas Club Paella de Chorizo

Paella de Chorizo (chorizo paella)

If you read till here, you will know that I like this place a lot. Tapas Club, albeit its uninspiring name, serves honest delicious Spanish food. The ambience may not be as nice as Binomio or FOC. However, I believe with its price, its location and its quality food, Tapas Club will become a hit among young crowds here. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

7 Options To Choose From @ New Hipster Food Court, FOMO

James Chan

The Weekly Glutton (27/11-03/12)

The Weekly Glutton features dining delights that have impressed us one way or another (or not) and are places we highly recommend you patronize.

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.

fomo interior

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!

Machida Shoten

Almost a week after our last trip to Japan Food Town, M and I found ourselves back again. But how can you blame us, the food there is just so satisfying! This week, we paid a visit to Machida Shoten, a ramen place from the Kanagawa Prefecture.

Machida Shoten close up of ramen

Shoyu Tonkatsu Cha-Shu Ramen, $18++

At Machida Shoten, customers are allowed to be as picky as they want.

Called lekei, Machida Shoten offers a unique concept of allowing customers to personalise their bowl of ramen to suit their preferences. One can expect to choose from light to Japan taste to strong flavour for their soup, and noodle textures ranging from soft, regular and hard.

Machida Shoten springy noodles

Noodles

The noodles were well-made, carrying a springy texture. They were not overly starchy, and were a good compliment to the rich broth.

Machida Shoten broth

Broth

One of the things I love here is the fact that customers can be as picky as they want. Can’t decide between a pork-based broth or soya sauced based one? Why not both!

Initially, I took tentative sips of the soup, but eventually got used to the salty pork- flavoured soup. As a testament to how full-bodied the flavour of the soup was, we realised that we had no need for the condiments by the side, as each sip carried a fresh new burst of flavours.

However, something that M realised mid-meal was that her soup was more oily than mine. She had the “light” flavoured soup, while I went for the Japan taste option. We figured that this may be because the oil from the char-shu mixed better with a richer broth, so my soup was less oily.

Machida Shoten char siew

Char-Shu

By the side of the bowl sits 5 tantalisingly thick-cut slices of char-shu. Alas, don’t let size fool you though. Despite the thickness of the meat, the char-shu slices were tender and soft, with good meat to fat ratio.

My first impression of the char-shu was how incredibly break-in-your-mouth soft it was, followed by awe when the fat that melted in my mouth. If there was a heaven, let it be filled with this char-shu for all of eternity.

Call me impressionable, but never have I had as many char-shu slices that were of such great quality. Usual ramen places serve at most 4 thin slices of char-shu, or 2 thick slices. But here you go, 5 thick, generous cuts of char-shu, sitting in full decadence at the side of your bowl, waiting for you to sink your teeth into them.

Machida Shoten great ramen great price

Conclusion

Different ramen places have different specialties, and if you particularly fancy char-shu, then you should give this place a visit!

An Honest Bowl of Prawn Mee

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle bowl

Traditional Prawn Noodle

I suppose each one of us have different preferences when it comes to our favorite food. Some of us prefer the traditional taste, while others prefer the more modern adaptation. I for one favor the traditional, no-frills dishes, and the Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle is one of such places.

Here, they serve simple, fuss-free servings of prawn mee, each bowl capturing the essence of a honest bowl of prawn noodles.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle signboard

The menu at Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle was simple. Just 4 options of prawn mee to choose from: traditional, with pork ribs, with pigs tail, or with jumbo prawns. Most options allow for customers to choose the size of the portions that they want, and a soup or dry version.

We decided to go with the traditional prawn mee, but ordered a bowl of dry mee and soup mee for comparison.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle the soup

The soup

When I first tasted the soup, I loved the rich, authentic taste of the prawn broth. This was unlike other places that you can taste the addition of MSG to the soup.

Admittedly, the addition of MSG gives the soup a “kick” that was a bit lacking here, but as I am all for sticking to authentic flavours, you won’t hear any complains from me here.

To top it off, the broth was commendably not too salty or oily, especially taking into account the fact that we ordered yellow noodles.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle gif

The noodles

The noodles were of just the right texture— not too soft or overly chewy. In fact, they even carried a certain springiness that we really enjoyed.

However, my favourite kind of prawn mee is the dry version, as each bite is always packed with so much flavour. Tossed in chilli sauce and perfectly al dente, the noodles were gone in a blink.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle prawn close up

The prawns

Arguably the star of the dish, (I mean it’s called PRAWN MEE for a reason) the prawns here were succulent and fresh. We ordered the regular ones, and each prawn was already so plump and meaty.

Imagine the JUMBO PRAWNS!!!

Plus, the prawns here come peeled for you so you don’t have to struggle with it!

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle pork

The pork

Thinly sliced and carrying just the right amount of fat, the pork strips go really well with the prawn mee. They add texture to the bowl of noodles.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle garnish

The garnish

Having garnishing adds a special flavour to each bowl of prawn mee. It defines a stall’s signature taste. The garnishing here was unpretentious— shallots, lard, and other ingredients. The shallots and lard, coupled with the crunchy beansprouts and kang kong made every bite of noodles a delight. Not to forget the sinful chunks of lards mixed with chilli, heightening  the umami sensation.

Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle wholesome meal

Conclusion

Even if you prefer the modern adaptation of prawn mee to the traditional, do still drop by Old Hokkien Prawn Noodle for an honest bowl of noodles. Greeted with warm smiles and a yummy bowl of noodles, one is sure to leave satisfied.

Oktoberfest at Paulaner Singapore

Paulaner Singapore

Last Friday night we went out for some nice cold German beer and delicious Bavarian food at Paulaner. As part of the Oktoberfest 2017, which lasted from 22 Sep – 30 Sep, Paulaner partnered Citibank and offered a promotion (10% off the bill for card holders) and a special menu for this period.

The Bier

Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier

Oktoberfest Bier

There was only one beer on sale during this period – Oktoberfest Bier, which was a classic Märzen style (lager from Bavaria Region). People who like drinking rich malty beer would really enjoy this one. The price was S$17.50 for 0.5L. There was also a 20% discount for orders before 8.30 PM. The bar could hold the beers for you too, which was really nice!

The Food

Paulaner Würstl-Trio

Würstl-Trio

Paulaner presented a special Oktoberfest menu. Our first order was Würstl-Trio, which consisted of roasted Nuremberger sausages, white and red bratwurst served with sauerkraut, mashed potato and dark beer sauce. The sausages were yummy as usual and they paired really well with the Oktoberfest beer.

Paulaner Oktoberfest Schnitzel

Oktoberfest Schnitzel

The second dish was the Oktoberfest Schnitzel, which was pork escalope filled with horseradish and mustard panfried with butter. It could have been better if the escalope had not been folded (it looked more like a pork chop). It should also be crispier. The flavor was alright and it was still better than your usual schnitzel you find in Singapore though.

Paulaner Pork Knuckle

Pork Knuckle

And here comes the pork knuckle. We could not stop ourselves from ordering it at a brauhaus like this. The skin was crispy and tasty (as it had a Paulaner beer glaze). The meat was, however, a bit dry. We have had better pork knuckle elsewhere.

The Ambience

Paulaner Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is not just about the beer and the food. The music (and the Chicken Dance) also forms part of the fun. The German band which played that night was funny and we had a really great time watching them live. There was also an English band taking over the stage when the German band went on a break. Overall, it was a great authentic Oktoberfest vibe. We wish the party space on the ground floor could have been larger. Don’t get us wrong; there was an outdoor area and also more space on the second and the third floor. However, when people came inside and gathered around the makeshift stage, there was not much space to move around.

Verdict

Paulaner Ambience

Overall, great beer (as usual), authentic Bavarian food, fun vibe. If you look for a place to celebrate your Oktoberfest with friends and family in Singapore, Paulaner is one of the choices you should really consider visiting (unfortunately, the event was already over for this year).

If you have an Oktoberfest event to suggest us to visit or review, please let us know in the comments section below. Until then, Prost!!!

Tiger Beer Street Food Festival 2017

Join In The Festivities With Tiger Beer

Food and festivals seem to have been in no short supply as of late, with the number of festivals that have happened recently like the Chinatown Street Food Festvial and Beerfest which happened much more recently. Adding to the list is the Tiger Street Food Festival.

(image: Tiger Street Food Festival Facebook Page)

What To Expect

With 15 different vendors, 2 live bands and a boatload of beers, this one is a must go. Tiger seems to have hit the nail on the head, because what goes better with a good meal than a good beer! I know most people have a bone to pick with Tiger not being ‘strong enough for them’, but as a light refreshing beer, I think it would go fantastic with some of our favorite local dishes!

You’ll be able to find the traditional classics, as well as some with a twist!

And what goes great with wings? Beer!

With Tiger’s all new Black and White offerings, I sure am excited for the Food Festival happening TOMORROW the 22nd of September!

Rumour has it that there’ll be Tiger Slushies!

The Astronauts (left) and HubbaBubbas (right) are part of this year’s lineup

They’ve even got 2 incredible live bands to provide the vibes! The Astronauts and HubbaBubbas will be around to rock you through the night while you kick back and chill will your favourite food and drinks! Each band has made a name for itself in it’s own right, and is definitely worth checking out!

The hawker scene is arguably the biggest part of Singaporean culture, and as the generations come and go, this culture is slowly waning away. So why not take the day to appreciate the food that we’ve grown up on, that goes under appreciated so often. What better way is there to spend your Friday evening that with good food and beer after all!

The Tiger Street Food Festival is happening TOMORROW the 22nd of September at Tan Quee Lan Street, from 5PM to 10:30PM.

VENUE: Tan Quee Lan Street

DATE: 22nd of September

TIME: 5PM to 10:30PM

Dare To Take Up The Spicy Chilli Ban Mee Challenge?

KL traditional chilli ban mee the chilli board

KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee

Originally located at Macpherson Road, KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee has expanded to Serangoon Garden Way. Judging from the lunch time crowd, they are as equally successful in Serangoon Gardens.

KL traditional chilli ban mee different levels of chilli

where’s number 3? don’t worry it didn’t disappear, it’s on your respective tables!

If you have never heard of them or tried their ban mee before, you’re in for a treat. Let me explain to you how their chilli system works. There are five different chilli levels to choose from (1 being the least spicy and 5 being the most spicy). The nice people at KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee don’t want to be responsible for you if you pass out in their store so they give the customer a free reign of the “chilli corner”. You alone have the control over how much chilli goes in (or not) and how spicy you want it to be.

I noticed some people not adding any chilli in their Ban Mee though. Come on, it’s called KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee for a reason no? You’re not getting the full experience without the chilli!

KL traditional chilli ban mee menu

Signature Chilli Ban Mee, with Level 5 Chilli, $5

I can’t speak for the rest of the menu but you can check it the rest of their offerings in the image above. I only ordered the Signature Chilli Ban Mee.

ALWAYS order the dry. It tastes so much better even though it gets gobbled down a lot faster than its soupy counterpart. Also, with the dry version, you can have fun with the chilli! I’ve never tried the Tom Yum one (it sounds mad spicy).

It’s really hard to describe the Level 5 in words. I love chilli, I cannot go a meal without some form of chilli or pepper. However, right after my first bite, my forehead and neck broke out in perspiration almost instantaneously. It tastes great, don’t get me wrong but it definitely has a “kick”.

My only gripe with this dish (like most places) is that the portions are minute. I’m a big guy, there should be an “off the menu” option of adding noodles or something.

Dare to take up the chilli challenge?

KL traditional chilli ban mee original ban mee with level 5

LEVEL 5 CHILLI mixed in the Original Ban Mee

Thai Milk Tea, $2.50

Pair your chilli creation with a cup of soothing Thai Milk Tea! It aids in putting out “gastro fires” that you might have caused in your mouth. They serve it in those traditional cups they used like twenty or thirty years ago. Not like you millennials would care but it’s BIG.

Psst, ask them for less ice. #auntyhacks
