Xiang Feng Nasi Lemak


Once upon a while seeking for high-calorie food? Local food Nasi Lemak comes to your mind without hestiating. Xiang Feng Nasi Lemak my childhood favorite, it might not be the best Nasi Lemak in Singapore but it's decently good enough to be a good "Chinese-Style Nasi Lemak".

Until now I still love it because they serve rice in choice of the original coconut flavored rice or the normal plain rice, which I personally will go for the normal plain rice.


The price estimate depending how many ingredients you order, total of 2 plates cost me SG$7.


My all-time favorite was the spicy fried anchovies (Mermaid-Fish), they are super crispy and tasty.


The must have Fried Chicken Wings when you have Local Nasi Lemak, they are not the best but suits my childhood taste preference.


One of their Signature ingredients was their Pork Chop and super crispy small fried anchovies with nuts.


Xiang Feng Nasi Lemak's ingredients were all literally superb, as for the rice it's only decent and price wise they are consider affordably budget. There are a total of 3 Nasi Lemak Stalls at Boon Lay Place Food Village and Xiang Feng was my personal favorite.

ANTI:DOTE Afternoon Tea

Presenting a glamorous Afternoon Tea set in a white leather-clad jewellery drawer chest by Antidote beautifully that naturally made you take a zillion photos before enjoying the finger-bite sized sweets & savoury.

I have been here a couple of times, what really interest me was not just the exquisite drawer chest. They actually changed their Afternoon Tea Set theme seasonally with random surprises.

Your choice of Tea or Coffee each per guest.

The starters each guest are entitled to choose either an Egg set or the Dim Sum Set.

One of the drawers were scones and the scones are different too depending on their Afternoon Tea Set theme. Example, I got star-shaped cranberry scones during Christmas theme. 

The savoury layer today were not that great compared to I had the last time, as I had mushrooms & truffle flavored savoury previously.

It's really just luck, drawer luck I suppose? Well the sweets today were pretty good as they were not too sweet, it really depends on which lucky theme you are served.


Overall, it was good based on total expectations and service was averagely good as well. Coming back again certainly because they always have divergent themes and I love new surprises.

The Providore Downtown Gallery

The Providore no one's not familiar with but what draws my attention was Kki's cakes, they are now only selling at The Providore Downtown Gallery outlet. 

Kki cakes are in a partnership with The Providore.

If you want to have less sweetened cakes and more of mousse texture sensation, then their cakes will be the most perfection taste for you.

Kinabaru, (SG$8.50) coconut mousse with passionfruit. 

Very lightly coconut paired with passionfruit, feels like on a vacation.

Rouge (SG$9.50), fromage blanc with raspberry. 

The raspberry makes it more of a soury taste, if you love sour the Rouge will be your best mate.

Mont Blanc (SG$9.50), all chestnut moments you can taste of.

The most less sweetened Mont Blanc that I have ever had in my life, usually Mont Blanc from other patisseries mostly taste sweet, beside sweet it may be very sweet. Exception for Kki's Mont Blanc, I think I can have 5 of these at a time... My love for chestnut was way beyond anyone's expectation and I quite love the soft crust that was made at the bottom as well.

Nao (SG9.50), strawberry mousse with pistachio.

Another very light matched simple creation, but the memory of the taste did not register in my mind that much.

I will have to order more cakes next time and I seriously can have more than what I ordered.

Boon Lay Fried Carrot Cake


Taste that has stamped in my mind since I was a kid, locked my heart that I always remember and will never forget was my childhood days the "Boon Lay Fried Carrot Cake".

The white-version fried carrot cake tasted more to the salty side.

I specially loved the black more, they sure have the good amount of seasoned turnips and fried-wok fragrant was strongly implemented which gives wonders to your taste buds.


The black-version doesn't look flattering but highly recommended that if you "takeaway", it will taste even better. Remember the days I always takeaway at least 10 packets home because now I am staying further and I got less chance to visit Boon Lay.

If you like more of a seafoodie taste, try it at night which usually the owner's daughter take over.


If you like more wok-flavor visit in the morning. Owner was the famous Char Kway from Jurong 13th Mile since 1956.

Price: SG$2.50/$3/$5

Ma Maison Bugis Junction

Looking for a comfy place to dine Japanese western food? Ma Maison will be the absolute spot. 

Don't be afraid to get your mouth polluted filthy with the Cuttlefish Ink Spaghetti (SG$17.30), it tasted simply good not too over powering with the cuttle fish ink.

I love hamburger steaks more than a whole steak, definitely not missing out the Ma Maison's Hamburger Steak 160g (SG16.80) with an egg, how lovely.

Love the antique style lamp sitting ontop of the floral table cloth which adds on a cozy-like comfy ambiance.

Not forgetting the Ma Maison's fruit tarts for dessert, Mixed Fruit Tart (SG8.80). I always love their simple fruit tarts that were filled with fresh fruits and light custard cream.

No ladies will go against a Strawberry Shortcake (SG8.80) that just perfects your entire meal to complete. 

Ma Maison has emblem a space in my heart, the comfortable ambiance and the comfort food makes me wanting to come back again.

Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo

Do you know that Singaporeans love Yong Tau Foo? During Lunch hours most of the working adults were seen queuing oftenly at any Yong Tau Foo stall, but Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo queues all day long. Bai Nian means "100 years or Century" and Yong Tau Foo means beancurd filled with ground meat mixture or fish paste, also vegetable filled with the ground meat mixture or fish paste. 

What is so special about the Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo (百年酿豆腐 ) that makes you queue at least 20mins? Unlike other places they serve many types of noodles and some even provide rice, but the Bai Nian Yong Tau Foo only serve "Bee Hoon", thin rice noodles without extra charge.

They have only 6 types of ingredients all hand-made which made them so unique. It took me 30mins to queue during a weekday lunch hour, and I remembered even non-peak hour took me 20mins. 

What makes me crave everytime was their sweet & springing handmade minced prawn that made me a come back customer. 

Willingly to queue for their bowl of heartwarming handmade Yong Tau Foo together with the natural refreshing soup even if I need to queue for 30mins.

Servings
SG$4.50 or SG$5.50

*If you want Bee Hoon no additional charge.

Mellower Coffee Bugis Singapore


Rainbow cake who doesn't like to look at how colorful it is, but when comes to taste the first impression to you will be? Exactly... Full of coloring and you might afraid that it won't taste good. 

Surprisingly, I happened to found my favorite rainbow cake at Mellower Coffee. The Galaxy Cream Cheese Rainbow Cake (SG$8.00), you just can't stop putting the colorful layers in your mouth.


If you are not a coffee lover like me, order a cup of hot chocolate (SG$6.20) to enjoy.


The most instagramable coffee that you don't want to miss, "Sweet Little Rain" (SG$9.80) the bitter coffee comes with the fluffy cotton candy on a stand, place the cotton candy stand on top of the hot coffee and let it rain.


Mellower Coffee is a place which me and my friends love to visit, I specially visit for their Rainbow cake and their beautiful ambiance which also attracts tourists.

Hoshino Coffee ION Orchard

Hoshino Coffee's specialty is their hand drip coffee but not forgetting they serve very good Soufflé, and also their heart-warming dishes.

The Tonkatsu Curry Rice's (SG$17.00) "Beef curry gravy" was so flavorful but the rice is pretty average, I hope they use better rice grade and I will surely finish everything up with the curry gravy.

Not everyone's cup of tea but the Shrimp, Avocado & Mozzarella with Tomato Cream Sauce Spaghetti (SG$15.00) was one of my favorite tomato-based pasta at Hoshino Coffee. 

If you love matcha you must try the Hoshino Coffee's special recommendation, Matcha Pancake Soufflé Style (SG$13.50 Single Pancake).

Not only their pancake soufflé is so cushiony-soft and it's close to the texture of "Japanese Sponge Cheese Cake", you are also given Matcha syrup to drizzle with as much as you want!
