Concealed besides Marrison Bugis Hotel, this izakaya uses ingredients imported from Japan. Something that its not commonly found - using in-house garlic spice powder and seaweed salt then be charcoal-grilled over Japanese white charcoal for the aroma. Japanese grilled skewers are affordably priced starting from S$2.60++. On the menu are also some light bites, deep fried, rice and noodles. The izakaya is a bit difficult to find. It is actually located along Tan Quee Lan Street car park and near Bugis MRT Exit D if you're heading by train. .

Teochew dialect is famous for its sweet desserts eg. yam paste (orh nee). Now, you can have it in Teochew-style pastry mooncakes at PUTIEN. Comes in two flavours including yam and purple sweet potato using Thailand's premium taro and Japan's first-grade purple sweet potato respectively. Both have the option with or without a single egg yolk to satisfy your savoury addiction. These pastry mooncakes are crafted from Madam Leng's homemade recipe. Madam Leng has been the Motherly figure with her Teochew style of mooncakes for almost two decades at PUTIEN. .
.
The flaky swirl pastry mooncakes come in either yam or purple sweet potato filling are low in sugar, so they are not so sweet. 😋 But rest assured, it has a smooth texture. The yam filling is really addictive. I feel that one piece is not enough for me. As each piece of pastry mooncakes is freshly made in-house daily upon order, with no preservatives and no additives. 👍🏻 It is recommended to order at least three days in advance and consume within three days. .
.
Assorted Mix at S$53 (Box of 4 - Yam, Yam w/ Single Yolk, Purple Sweet Potato, Purple Sweet Potato w/ Single Yolk)

Madam Leng Mooncakes are available from now to 24 Sept 2018. .

I have to admit my bias: the Chicken Herbal Collagen soup that is the perfect comfort food after work. Despite boiling for more than an hour, the chicken was still tender and flavourful. The soup itself was luscious and sweet. While steam potting, the rich juices of the seafood and meat will seep into the hotpot soup below, thus deepening the flavour of the soup.  Happy TGIF everyone! 🎉 .

Using only finest grain-fed Prime and Choice beef and containing some of the highest amounts of marbling and is rare in the beef industry. You might have the misconception that Morton's beef is grilled but that's not the case. All steaks are broiled to order at 800-1000F, seals in flavour (flame from above) then seasoned with Morton's seasoning salt. The steak is then dressed with au jus which is the meat broth and garnished with watercress. .
.
Here’s some cuts of steak 🥩 available at Morton’s:
1️⃣ Dry-aged beef
2️⃣ Wet-aged beef
3️⃣ Porterhouse steak
4️⃣ Fillet Mignon (my favourite steak)😋
5️⃣ New Yolk Strip
6️⃣ Ribeye (most popular steak) 😋
.
Good steak paired with a good wine leads to a perfect lunch or dinner. .

Have you ever noticed a difference in KFC's Pepsi compared to the last time? Yay to healthier fast food with the introduction of the new KFC's grilled chicken with PEPSI BLACK. Pepsi Black is cool and refreshing pair nicely with grilled chicken. I feel that Pepsi Black is less sweet, healthier as it has no calories. Is that why I actually feel hungry after awhile?
