Have you guys watched Spectre, the last of Daniel Craig’s interpretation of James Bond? No spoilers, but while I enjoyed the first half, the second half was a little disappointing. Which was the second time that weekend I felt let down. The first was about 3 hours before the movie, when I walked in to the new brunch place on Purvis St called Clinton St Baking Company, and was told the wait was going to be 1 hour 40 minutes. WHAT!!! How ’bout NO! So my friend and I detoured to The Lab SG at Jalan Pisang, which was about 5 minutes from opening at 1pm. That’s right, my friend and I were the first to get to the Lab, which really never happens!

image

Me shyly having a drank at the totally empty cafe.

The last time I came I was so excited about the lemon-infused water that I ignored the home-made brews they have on display above the order counter, but this time I was determined to get something:

image

Water My Lime, Mint Earl Grey Lime, Chrys The Wolfberry. I wanted to order the last one purely for the mystery, but I went with the watermelon/lime tea instead.

image

Bad photo, but I love the pink hue, and it tasted really refreshing!

For starters I ordered the¬†Ayam Karat, which is the grilled chicken in a honey and dates marinade,¬†accompanied by a cup of spicy black sambal! I totally forgot how much it costs and I didn’t take a photo of the menu this time, but I will check and update!

image

That sauce right there? Is some good ish.

image

You guys, the black sauce is SO DELICIOUS!! It tastes like the sambal kicap for Mee Soto, but sweeter. There are plenty of chilli seeds in the sauce, so there’s some bite to it. I’m not sold on the honey date marinade, because I thought it needed to be a bit more savoury instead of bittersweet, but luckily the chicken was very tender. Also is it just me or should there have been more marinade on the chicken? It looked and tasted a little dry on the outside for me, but the amazing black sauce saved the day. 8/10

For my mains I decided on the vegetarian¬†De La Huerta (S$13), which is Spanish for “from the garden/orchard”. It consists of one giant baked bell pepper stuffed with a wild mushroom gratin and cheese stuffing, topped with long strips of crispy fried onion, and served on a bed of salad and capers.

image

image

OMG YUMMMM CHEEEEESE

Guys let’s be real here. I am always the last person who will ever go for the vegetarian option, but I think it was Providence asking me to order it that day. The De La Huerta was surprisingly very yummy! It made me feel virtuous eating the baked pepper, and not in a self-deprivatory way. The red pepper was fresh and juicy, so that with every crunch there was a burst of flavour. The cheese was chewy and delicious, with bits of wild mushroom in it for extra texture. I also thought the crispy onion strips tasted satisfyingly savoury, while the capers revolutionized every bite with some extra saltiness/sourness. Overall the flavours of each component mixed together very well, making for a very robust main dish. 9/10

My friend ordered the La Carte Le Fish (S$17), which is the pan-fried, oven-grilled barramundi drizzled with a prawn cocktail creme:

image

That’s the yam latte (S$5.50), that my Friend said tasted too much like flavouring, and was “not worth it”. Also, barramundi in Malay is ikan siakap.

My friend let me have a couple of bites and boy, was the fish SO GOOD! Very tender and fresh, not at all overcooked or dry, which is terribly easy to do with a delicate protein like fish. The crème was rich and umami, pairing very well with the fish. The prawns were quite sweet, but tasted like regular frozen prawns. Overall still pretty decent! 9/10

We rounded off the meal with a slice of the Salted Caramel Cake (S$8.90):

image

So the story was,¬†I wanted my friend to get the molten lava cake, but because of some miscommunication he ordered this cake instead. I was all ready to be all “ugh I hate this cake, you should have ordered the lava cake!” but then this cake turned out to be actually pretty good. It wasn’t spongey, but denser and more fudgey, you know? Nice and sweet, but the salted caramel provided some balance to the palette. I didn’t really care for the chocolate bits at the top (they got stuck in my teeth), but otherwise a decent¬†cake. 8/10

At the end of it all I had a great meal at The Lab, and the vibe of the place is really cosy¬†and laid back, so you never feel rushed and every conversation you have feels private. I’ll definitely go more often. I also like that they keep experimenting with the menu, so that sometimes you get things taken off/added to the menu – the Hungarian Goulash, notably, is missing from the latest menu. The cakes are also mostly out of this world. Once I came here just for dessert,¬†and that was also super enjoyable! The Nutella Smores Tart is PHENOMS guys. Get on it!

A quick review for you guys today on my favourite Far East Plaza food joint, Cahaya. If you remember, in my last review of Cahaya, I talked about the beef fried rice with chicken topping as my plate du jour. Recently my lunch buddy and I hopped onto a new ride – a plate of Hokkien Mee (S$4) each, and a small serving of the Oyster Omelette (S$6) to share.

image

So much green and yellow it’s like I’m in Brasil (spelling so step)

Here is a closer look at the Hokkien Mee (S$4):

image

First of all, give it up for halal hokkien mee!!! The unhalal ones are so very unhalal, since they are fried in lard, and it’s hard to even find no pork/no lard versions, so to have a halal-certified version is God-sent. I love Cahaya’s hokkien mee since it’s really very moist; the noodles and taugeh are soaked in flavourful broth so that each bite is really juicy and savoury. Most importantly, the taugeh is well-cooked and not bitter with rawness eww. As you can see, they are also really generous with the fish cake, which I love. In addition, there are¬†two small prawns included, but I wish they also had squid, which would complete the plate. Beggars can’t be choosers though, because I think for¬†S$4 a plate, you’re really getting your money’s worth. ¬†A special mention is merited by sambal that comes with the noodles, which is REALLY yummy – spicy and a little sweet, with a hint of belacan. Pro-tip: ALWAYS ask for extra sambal! 9/10

One day I was reading in the New York Times about how Chomp Chomp the hawker centre actually opened up a restaurant in Greenwich Village, in NYC, and I got this MASSIVE craving for oyster omelette, so instead of our usual side of fried wantan, we went for the Oyster Omelette (S$6) in a small portion – there’s also an S$8 serving – :

image

Yummm look at the crispy edges and the slightly browned parts!

image

Oystersssss

The omelette is way delicious, and very umami. The oysters themselves were surprisingly decent, contrary to my expectation that they were going to be mediocre or not so fresh, since I figured a place like Cahaya would probably not move much oysters in their inventory. I stand corrected, and am very happy to to say the oyster omelette at Cahaya is very good, especially when you have it with the special chilli dip that they provide. My only wish is that they would garnish the omelette with a few sprigs of coriander, because that would be SO DOPE. 9/10

Ultimately Cahaya Restaurant remains my Far East Plaza favourite for lunch, but of course you guys can check it out anytime between 1130am to 9pm, I love the place because it’s simple, cheap, and SO good.

Here’s a look at the menu again!

Last Saturday my friend brought me to The Ramen Stall which, as promised, serves up a mean ramen, along with other Japanese fare. The menu is really very extensive, and without knowing it was available online, I stupidly took a photo of every single page haha. I’m still putting it up at the end of this post, in case you guys want to browse through without going to the Ramen Stall website.

We got there at 830pm on a Saturday night, and the place was absolutely hopping! All tables both inside and at the outside seating area were taken, so my friend and I had to sit at the sushi bar, which was fine since it felt quite private. We ordered quite a few items to share so here’s a rundown:

We got the Salmon Sashimi (S$9.90 for 7 slices) first, which came on a boat you guys! Super cute.

 

imageimage

I’m afraid the sashimi did not taste too fresh. I LOVE sashimi and I wanted so badly to like it, but I could tell off the bat from the pale orange hue of the salmon that it wasn’t going to be great. 6.5/10

At my insistence we also ordered a plate of the Teppanyaki Giant Hokkaido Scallops (S$16.90 for 5):

image

First impressions – “omg this looks like super fiery black pepper sauce, will I be able to take it?!” It was intimidating. So I gingerly put the scallop in my mouth, expecting crazy heaty pepper sauce, but surprisingly it was really pleasant. I LOVE when scallops are served together with what is called “the coral”, which is the orange section around the scallop. I found that most of the lightly spicy, savoury flavour was concentrated in the coral instead of the actual scallop meat, which I thought tasted just the slightest bit bland. Texture-wise the scallops were great though, slightly chewy and you could taste the “fibres” instead of it being one fish cake-like lump. I don’t know if that makes sense to you guys :/ 8.5/10

Of course, we HAD to try a classic bowl of Volcano Ramen (S$11) in chicken-based stock. It came in 3 levels of spiciness, and we chose to go with level 2:

imageimage

It was SO GOOD GUYS!! The broth was so tasty!! It was thick, not too salty and was just rich enough. Once we mixed the two giant dollops of Chilli together with the ramen ingredients, the bowl started to resemble a cauldron of fiery hot lava. It was fierce guys. I was all but crying while working my way through the noodles – so spicy, but so delicious! The egg was really yummy especially since the yolk was mushy and partially cooked. The seaweed was thick and satisfying to bite on, since it had a little bit of resistance to it. The shimeji mushrooms were perfect – I love all mushrooms – and the corn helped add a little sweetness to pare down the biting hot heat from the chilli. Overall just a great bowl of deliciousness. 10/10

Being the greedy guts that we were, we also ordered the Kushiyaki Set A (S$12.90) which came with assorted skewers of shishamo pregnant fish, shiitake mushroom, chicken yakitori, quail eggs, beef roll with golden mushroom, AND a side of rice topped with scrambled eggs, mushroom and chicken!

image

Shiitake mushrooms, shishamo fish, quail’s eggs, enoki mushroom wrapped in beef, and chicken!

image

Too much food!

Full disclosure – we were getting pretty full by the time this came, and boy were we NOT expecting the rice to come with all these skewer sticks. We hardly touched the rice, but to summarize my feelings about the skewers, i thought they were all a little average, and a little dry.You CAN make yakitori that’s juicy and delicious, so I’m not sure why all of these were really desiccated. The beef in the beef roll all but disintegrated in my mouth. The shishamo also was so dry most of it stuck to the skewer stick, so the fish broke apart when I tried to slide it off the stick. ¬†Loved the quail eggs though, always and forever. 6/10

All in all I would say I felt like the ramen was the only thing truly worth coming back for – I guess I shouldn’t have doubted the name of the establishment! You can’t go to a place called The Ramen Stall and expect them to have amazing sashimi, you know? That being said, the ramen really was so legit and so delicious, I want to have another bowl of it soon! Plus let’s not forget this place closes at 6am so you can come here at odd hours if you’re hankering for some of that yummy hot broth. YUM.

So last Sunday¬†after a lovely staycation at Hotel Jen, one of my friends suggested we¬†try ¬†Icebox Caf√©, the newly-opened, 100% halal, Muslim-owned, Korean bingsu place near Farrer Park MRT. In case you didn’t know, Bingsu is a popular dessert from Korea comprising shaved frozen milk with sweet toppings that run the gamut from cut fruits, to condensed milk, to oreo cookies. Bingsu cafes are evvvvvrywhere in Singapore right now, but Icebox Caf√© is the first halal bingsu caf√© in Singapore.

We were the first to arrive – literally, the owner Mus was still putting the chairs out at the storefront, but he gave us a warm – if slightly apologetic – welcome. Off to a good start.

According to Mus they were still not done tricking out the place, but I liked what I saw:

image

The cosy corner where my friends and I sat. Also, wake your ass up says the rooster!

 

image

Lovely! The computer in the corner plays music videos for a bit of a party/chill vibe. I’m not sure if they accept requests, but that would be awesome (if, a little disruptive).

image

The counter area with assorted gelato

 

image

MILK COOKIE SHOTS!!!! Probably inspired by Dominique Ansel Bakery’s version in New York City! I will forever regret seeing this ONLY as we were leaving the place ūüė¶

image

Love the lighting, très Parisian salon (omg so step)

image

LOVE THIS MADNESS. “Jolok motosikal ya bang?”

image

Closeup of the hanging bike of Babylon

Icebox Caf√©’s menu has some range and is definitely skewed towards the sweet-toothed diner:

image

Shakes in your face!! So great. Also note the slogan of the cafe: Take a chill pill. NOICE.

image

The toast selection is not for the faint-hearted.

image

Nasi Lemak available Fri-Sun! For when you want to take your¬†family here, but then the¬†older people need proper food. The ‘braided’ is regrettable, but I forgive them because they were the loveliest people

The first thing we ordered was the Turon (S$4.50), which is a local play on a Filipino delicacy of the same name, consisting of jackfruit and banana wrapped in popiah skin. Icebox went a little further and added ice cream and grated cheese into the mix:

image

YUMMMM this was really good you guys! I love any dessert with warm, gooey banana, and jackfruit (ahem Krave’s cempedak cr√®me brulee) so this was an automatic winner for me. The sweetness of the fruit fillings paired with the slight saltiness of the cheese, and combined with the melty ice cream and chocolate sauce to form a veritable party in my mouth. So, so good. And at only S$4.50?! What a steal. 10/10

One of us ordered the Salty Mr Brown Milkshake (S$12.90) which had salted caramel, smores, a wafer and a cookie, drizzled with chocolate sauce.

image

I had a sip of this and found it truly, truly decadent. I loved the caramel taste of the milkshake, and the fluffy marshmellows were heavenly, but in the perennial fight between shakes and freezes, I’m an ice-blended girl through and through, so this was not for me.¬†Oh but they do have plenty of options in case you’re not totally into sweet stuff, like the Iced Peppermint Cucumber Tea (S$3) which is perfect for cooling off on a hot day. I thought this was a little too sweet, and personally I would probably have regular drinks next time and save my sweetness quota for the other desserts. 7.5/10

For the main event we selected the Chocolatey Banana Delight Bingsu (S$12.90):

image

A mountain of yum

The bowl came together with a small shot of milky syrup as a sweetener, which we drizzled all over the ice. YUMMM. So the bananas, the chocolate powder, the vanilla ice cream, and the chocolate sauce, were all top notch and tasted delicious. For real, I mean who does not like the combination of banana and chocolate?  As for the shaved ice, I have to say, I wish the taste had been a little more milky and a little sweeter, but the texture was really great Рsuper soft, and snowy. The sweetness issue was also mitigated by the aforementioned milky syrup, so overall it still tasted pretty fantastic. 8/10

We spoke to owner Mus, who said they were still working on perfecting the taste of the ice. However, he said they couldn’t make the frozen milk too sweet, as it would lower the melting temperature of the ice, and so the ice shavings wouldn’t hold up as long. Fair enough. One other comment we had was that we wished it wasn’t just all the sweet stuff up top, and then all the ice at the bottom – we wanted more layers, so maybe more chocolate and banana layers in the middle of all that ice. We were told they would work on that after getting the ice taste right, so we shall see! I’ll definitely be coming back to this cafe to try more flavours of the Bingsu.¬†¬†

After all of the goodness above, finally came the Injeolmi Toast (S$5.90), which contained steamed Korean rice cakes, drizzled with honey, dusted with powdered soybean, and topped with vanilla ice cream (I think the vanilla ice-cream is again an Icebox addition).

image

Orange you glad to see me?

image

OMGGGG

The Injeolmi took forever to come (we were forewarned of the 20-min wait upon placing our order), but boy was it worth it. As I bit down on the toast, there was a satisfying crunch and a delicious sweetness filled my mouth – I believe that was the honey and butter from the toast. The whole thing was really sweet and super¬†rich, so it’s not the thing for you unless you’re a sweet tooth. Which, I am, thanks. The ice cream helped to cut the richness of it a little with the cold texture, so you don’t get super jelak of it. I would still recommend this for sharing though; there is no way I would’ve been able to finish this all by myself and still keep my legs, after all the other items. 8.5/10

All in all, I think Icebox Cafe is a great addition to the halal foodscape in Singapore – the owners are delightful, and endlessly patient with all the questions I and other diners had, the prices are very reasonable, and the selection is pretty impressive (you can’t get anymore diverse than Nasi Lemak and Korean Shaved Ice). I will definitely bring more of my friends here so we can try out all the other things on the menu, like the milk cookie shots!! And actually I’m quite curious about the nasi lemak. Will see if I can try it soon and put up a review!

I first went to¬†Royz et Vous, back when it was at¬†Bali Lane, with my classmate one day after Arabic class on Bussorah St (check out Al Markaz, it’s great!) and enjoyed the Buffalo Wings tremendously. So when I found out that it had moved to Telok Ayer, I was determined to check it out. Afterall, it was a welcome move, as the Telok Ayer/Chinatown area could use more quality halal establishments.

image image

The new Royz et Vous is a short walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT station, and an even shorter one from Telok Ayer MRT station, if you are coming on the Downtown Line. Finding it is relatively easy as the restaurant faces the Thian Hock Keng temple, the oldest Hokkien temple in Singapore. I arrived there one weekday evening around 630pm, and was pleased by the new interior of the place:

Royz et Vous interior decor

Pretty cosy, and very woody

Royz et Vous Furniture

Definitely a step up from the metal seats/tables they used to have at the Bali Lane location

The menu seems to have expanded quite remarkably, with more substantial appetizers, mains, and drinks:

Royz et Vous Menu Snacks Appetizers

Sliders! Two types of chicken wings! Sweet potato fries! Salad! Very diverse, but I was also wondering why Truffle Fries wasn’t on the menu ūüė¶

Royz et Vous Menu Mains

Beef, chicken, prawns, salmon, duck, cod, lamb – they have everything here! I was spoilt for choice

Royz et Vous Drinks Menu

Halal champagne and wine! What a novelty. I tasted alcohol-free beer in Spain once and HAAAATED it. Wonder how I’d feel about these ones.

My cousin and I decided to share the Buffalo Wings (S$12.90), since it was so good the first time I had them.¬†Upon placing our order, we were warned that it was going to be pretty spicy as they were going to be coated in buffalo sauce made with bird’s eye chilli. I wasn’t worried, since my cousin who came with me, is an absolute chilli fiend – the kind who will drink spicy kuah asam pedas like a soup.

Royz et Vous Buffalo Wings

4 drumlets and 4 mid-joint wings

Royz et Vous Buffalo Wings 2

YUMMMMM

Consistent with my previous assessment, the buffalo wings were SO GOOD!!!! So juicy, and savoury. A mixture of spicy, sweet, and sour at the same time, just so delicious. I didn’t find the sauce too overwhelmingly hot, and even if I did, the sour cream dip would have done the trick to pare it down. The chicken skin had absorbed the flavours of the buffalo wings sauce, while still retaining some of its crispiness, which was great. Definitely a must-order here. 10/10

For my mains, I ordered the R.E.V. Brazen Beef (S$27.90), which is the striploin steak sliced into several cuts (the term for it is Tagliata I think, which is Italian for sliced steak). I ordered it in medium done-ness, and it came accompanied with fries, salad, and chilli aioli:

Royz et Vous Brazen Beef Entrecote

Not the biggest fan of the plastic cup for the sauce, as it marred the presentation a little

image

Royz et Vous beef steak closeup

Perfectly pink! Love the colour.

I had wanted so badly to like the¬†striploin, since I was looking for a serious contender to Krave’s amazing steak. The first bite did have me impressed – the beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender – but after a few more bites I realised it wasn’t really as flavourful as I’d wanted it to be. The beef ended up tasting a little bland, so I had to keep eating it with the chilli aioli for more flavour. So while the texture was really tender, I thought the taste needed some improvement. The salad wasn’t bad, pretty standard and enjoyable. I thought the fries were a little soggy and I didn’t appreciate those green bits on it – I think they were seaweed? Or some sort of herb. Personally I prefer my steak fries to be hot, thick-cut, and with no other frills. Overall this dish was slightly disappointing – I would probably want to try the Asparagus Beef on my next visit though. 7/10

My cousin tried the R.E.V. Smoked Duck (S$24.90), which came with herb-roasted potatoes, salad, and a cup of home-made spicy sauce:

image image

I LOVED the roasted baby potatoes – it tasted of rosemary and, well, good old potato. I don’t think I’ve ever had bad rosemary potatoes, come to think of it. The smoked duck itself, while savoury and flavourful, tasted a little dry.¬†This I thought was disappointing. Before my second bite of this, I dunked the smoked duck meat into the spicy sauce, which mitigated the dryness a little. ¬†7/10

For dessert, we decided on the Mango Cr√™me Br√Ľl√©e (S$9.90), because truthfully it sounded delicious, and also we wanted some sort of comparison with Krave’s signature Cempedak Cr√®me Br√Ľl√©e.

Royz et Vous Mango Creme Brulee

How pretty!

Royz et Vous Mango Creme Brulee Close Up

Does that not look terribly delicious!!

I really loved the taste of the mango custard; it was top notch. Sweet, mangoey, and with the perfect custardy consistency (creamy and soft, but with some body). I thought the burnt sugar layer at the top was a little too think/soft – they should have burnt it a little longer, or added more sugar really. I really love the slightly bitter taste of burnt sugar, which I thought would have complemented the sweet mango custard really well, but alas the bitter taste was not at all strong. I must say I really loved the colours of this dish, and the actual mango custard which was so, so delicious. Too bad about the caramelised shell. My cousin and I still preferred the Cempedak rendition of it from Krave, as it’s more special, with the distinct and strong cempedak taste adding some welcome bitterness to the dish. 8/10

I won’t review the drinks much, so here are a couple of photos of my Iced Chocolate (S$8) and my cousin’s Mint Mocha Latte (S$7):

Royz et Vous iced chocolate

Not as thick as I would have liked. Although I wouldn’t have liked it too sweet, this to me tasted a little bland.

Royz et Vous Mint Mocha Latte

HOW PRETTYYYYYY. I didn’t taste this Mint Mocha Latte, but it looks absolutely luxurious on the deep red saucer, against the wooden table.

All in all, I think Royz et Vous still has some room for improvement, although it moving to Telok Ayer is a step in the right direction (more halal options in the Singapore CBD please!). The buffalo wings are the cat’s pajamas, and I really loved the quiet, laid-back, high-ceilinged ambience of the restaurant. It’s a cool space, and I hope they stay there a long time — long enough to improve on the mains! I will definitely go back to try the other stuff, insyaa Allah.

Service is very friendly, and because it is (a) a full-service restaurant that (b) accepts credit cards and (c) sits in the CBD area, I think you could actually go to Royz et Vous not just with your friends and family, but also with business partners for a low-key business lunch or dinner.
