Except for one time when I felt that the cheong fun was too mushy, Victor’s Kitchen has always been a treat. I used to go to the Sunshine branch every time I had something to send for printing.
Something about being in the room full of printers and papers that gets me excited. Victor’s Kitchen was just the bonus. YL was the one who brought me to try the one at Chinatown Point and I like that there’s no crowd (or so it seems at the few times I’ve been there) and it’s not as crazy as Sunshine Plaza’s original branch.

We finally went back for some crab ramen since it moved from Millennia Walk.
I had the light version while Immanuel had the rich one. I prefer this one. We were especially bloated, no fault of this place.
We’re learning to listen to our bodies and stop overeating.

On the way to church this morning, we stopped by Little India to settle breakfast at Tekka Market and it turned out to be a lovely impromptu one.
Usually, I’d shy away from trying new stalls as I firmly believe in only having what’s tried and tested. I’ve had better naan and butter chicken but it wasn’t too bad and what was so fun about it was that we were just intending to take another train at Little India to get to Bugis. The hustle and bustle of the market was delightful and it made me so thankful to be able to spend a Sunday morning leisurely having breakfast with my husband.
We couldn’t hang around too long as I had to serve at FK, but it was an hour well spent.
Jie brought us to this place that she frequently patrons, and it turns out that they moved to their own space which was right where Imm proposed!
Excellent wagyu truffle rice, which would have been so much better with an onsen egg. But it’s not like I love egg yolks anyway…
Mummy’s aglio olio with chicken
Off the menu clam soup – usually served with spaghetti
French onion soup
Yx’s double portion spaghetti with steak
Discovered this sparkling yuzu drink
Har Cheong Gai
I’d definitely go back again, for the wagyu rice, clam soup and the view of our proposal venue.

This is my go-to ‘snack’ whenever I head to Chinatown. It is by far the best guotie I’ve had! It must be also the fact that it was such a treat whenever a relative bought it over when I was young. The perfect thickness of the crispy-doughy skin, and the pork and chives inside which are not too overwhelming, go so well with the chilli sauce and vinegar. I don’t usually eat the ginger shreds but I don’t mind them in the vinegar dip.

There are mornings where I crave for economical beehoon, and days that I crave for vegetarian beehoon. Gluten cravings can be majorly satisfied with a plate of vegetarian beehoon. I love gluten. Thankfully, there’s a good one in Sengkang, not too far from where I live. Good hawker fare in the far North East is a rarity that I’ll always be thankful for.

A new dish was introduced at Old Hen recently!
I was pretty unexcited when I heard that it was chicken breast. But the dashi got me. It gets me all the time.
Ochazuke is one of my favourite dishes to order in a restaurant. It’s not common in Singapore and there’s something about rice in soup that excites my tastebuds. The texture of rice grains swimming in broth is so comforting.
The dish was overall really homey, but it started to lose the flavour towards the end. Still a good option for me when I do visit the place again.
My friends had the set meals for lunch and it came with a small portion of soup or salad. And what a splendid bowl of soup it was. I usually don’t like pumpkin in soup – regardless of Chinese or Western style. But this was just too awesome. It wasn’t too sweet nor pasty. A just-right bowl of pumpkin soup. I would totally order this in its normal portion.
One of the highlights of this visit was getting to know (through R, because I am still an inconsistently awkward adult) that their tables were Ikea solid wood tops with customised bases. So this has become a furniture piece that Immanuel and I have included in our home concept.
A lovely day there, I would say.
