Chilled Silken Tofu with Century Egg and Bonito Flakes from Paradise Classic.
It was many years ago, in a Japanese restaurant, when I first discovered the combo of century eggs and tofu. I’ve always enjoyed them on their own, but it never occured to me that they would work together. It does seem kind of strange.
But like that quirky couple who despite (or exactly because of) their many differences stand the test of time, this unlikely twosome has so far not failed me. I’ve since ordered it almost every time I see some variation of it on a menu, and don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
Happy week ahead everyone!

1/2 crab & 1/2 lobster in two different styles: SG Chilli Crab Sauce & Mentaiko Sauce
Just around two months old, @lobstersandicecream
is a small kiosk tucked in the heart of Chinatown, serving up lobster and crab rolls, alongside with soft serve.
Bearing no expectations, it turned out to be a pretty disappointing experience. The portions were small, with a huge bread to seafood ratio. There were not just one but numerous crab/lobster shells being spat out from both rolls. The mentaiko sauce was just too overpowering and lacked that creamy texture I desired. They probably also forgotten to torch it for that smoky flavour before serving. The only saving grace was the buttered buns which were lightly crusted on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

We all scream for bloomin’ good ice cream! 🍨🍧🍦 Swung by Birds of Paradise for some artisan gelato and it made my tummy reaaaaaal happy. Inspired by botanical themes from flowers, fruits to spices, they’re known for their thyme cone and exotic flavours so... I opted for the white chrysanthemum (a word I still have difficult pronouncing without breaking into a fit of giggles for some reason) and spiced pear. LOVED the first floral number - it’s one for those who don’t really have a sweet tooth. Not overly sweet, natural flavours and made your taste buds feel like it was taking a stroll through a chrysanthemum field. Wasn’t as impressed with the spiced pear but I DID taste the masala spice which tasted exactly like it... but in ice cream form. Peculiar. Worth the visit! ✨🌿🌙 (📸: @smilewithjeryl
Yummy Beefy bowl of goodness! 😄 This is like my 4th visit. The queues are still long and the Wagyu beef bowl is still tasty and yummy but the portion really seems to have shrunk somewhat. Whereas the beef used to cover the entire tray properly, it’s clearly not the case now and the cooked mound of beef is smaller. Also I much prefer it when the chefs cook one portion at a time rather than try to handle two saucepans at the same time? When they multitask, the standard is less consistent as often the beef doesn’t get cooked as evenly. 😔
Shredded Scallops with Fish & Egg White with no crab meat but the texture is similar to having crab meat. 😋
