Chicken roulade and crabmeat linguine pasta from #lebouillon_sg - the chef is ex- #saveur - so this particular presentation of pasta is intentional. Never tried these items from Saveur, but each of them are expertly done and are unmistakably well done. The roulade was still slightly crispy, even in a takeaway box. The pasta was creamy but not fishy as too many seafood pastas tend to be. The exception is the mash that is. It was bland. Odd... but easily overlooked when everything else is done so well. @lebouillon_sg #omnivoreric

#koimatchalatte - erm, the #matcha may not be as fake as SBUX, but it really is thin as heck. The milk seems to lack creaminess. At least let me add ice-cream if it's gonna be this lacklustre. Also realised I may have grown out of chewy pearls in my tea (I prefer #aloevera these days...) #omnivoreric #koisingapore @koisingapore

So I saw my results. My reaction: FISH!!! So there you go, FISH crispy noodles from An Ji. #FISH #lawsku #omnivoreric #whatamidoingwrong

Gotta appreciate good service where it exists - @toastboxsg helps you crack your eggs if you're doing a takeaway. Also, I think I prefer my #porkflossbun in #toastboxsg #thicktoast form instead haha #omnivoreric

#mangostickyrice with coconut cream. Maybe someone should think of making this in nonya kueh slices. #thaifestsg #omnivoreric

#janggutlaksa - very much like primary school laksa, but with a slightly more complex flavor. And some cockles. For when you're craving laksa but not quite up for Depot Road Claypot Laksa. #omnivoreric

#arnoldpalmer Thai style. #TIL: #thaiteamix = broken tea, vanilla, and colouring. Now I know where the vivid orange comes from. Should try replicating this with better tea. #omnivoreric

So, finally, the @mcdsg #nasilemakburger. Which was surprisingly good. At least I could make out the coconut flavor in the chicken. I'm the kind of person who wants curry on my nasi lemak tho, so maybe two applications of the sambal sauce may have been a tad much. Replace one of it with curry sauce and we're set. Coconut pie was a bit of a disaster tho. Not liking the presence of nata de coco inside the pie... maybe some strips of actual coconut flesh would be better. #omnivoreric

Carbonara, for when you've spent the last night trying to get your head around the property tutorial. This was big on bacon, but also overflowing with cream (there's not actually supposed to be cream in carbonara - it's meant to be eggs) #omnivoreric #vscocam #carbonara

So I have been told that I was doing #mujicafe wrong. Their sleeper hit is apparently their... #butterchicken? A Japanese place doing a quintessentially Indian dish?
Anyway I picked up a #retortpouch of their butter chicken at another Muji. Typically retort pouches don't give me much hope if NS #fieldrations are anything to go by. To add to that, the instructions direct you to BOIL the bag in a pot of water. Hmmmmm.

But Muji's butter chicken thing actually works... to an extent. Too little chicken for the price, but a generous serving of gravy. And not the thick Japanese kind, mind you. Proper Indian curry consistency. You could dip your prata or naan in this. It's also very creamy, but not very greasy. It's NOWHERE as good as the real thing, but it is a good gift for homesick people studying/working overseas on the European continent I guess haha #omnivoreric #muji #無印良品 #クリーミーバターチキン #mujibutterchicken

@jewelcoffee - where even the flat white requires you to choose the origin of your coffee bean. Which, in this case (#brazil #🇧🇷 I think) makes sense since the promised nuttiness and earthiness of this particular bean really did stand up to the milk. I must say I'm impressed with this southern pairing. (Is #flatwhite a #Aussie #🇦🇺or #Kiwi #🇳🇿invention? Comments welcome) In other news tho: this flat white is really huge - not that I'm complaining! #omnivoreric

#mujicafe @mujisg - #yuzu pork, yuzu couscous and prawn salad... and a COLD #tamagoyaki??? (Well I knew it was gonna be cold since it was labeled as such, but the concept is still terrible) Sorry, but nothing here was very exciting or really worth the price. #ryukyu #chai was just drain water and random sprinkle of spice. Urgh. Well at least now I know! #omnivoreric

#californiadreaming and #lemakroll - someone please inform #makisan that...
(1) The essence of nasi lemak is #coconutmilk (or should that be #coconutmylk??). Using white rice to make a "lemak roll" hardly makes sense. There is meant to be coconut flakes but I couldn't taste it.
(2) They need crispier seaweed. Or maybe the lack of crispiness is a result of putting the roll in a box, causing the seaweed to go soggier faster.
(3) I should try designing a roll with just #ebiko and one other ingredient and no sauce, just to see how fresh their stuff is... #rollwithmakisan #omnivoreric

#starbuckssg - still #notafan of #coldbrew tho, even if it's #nitrocoldbrew. This one comes with "#sweetcream" (probably whipping cream...) - so it did cancel out the acidity, but it still tasted stale. Ok I think cold brew coffee may not be my cup. #omnivoreric

There is a very good reason why @kfc_sg only gives 4 #hotdevildrumlets in a set. Because 8 is guaranteed to be a cure for blocked noses. The #spicylime was essentially cajun-style spice with lime; the #flamingchilli was somewhat more orthodox KFC with more heat. Curiously both were equally spicy. #omnivoreric

#tuktukchasg 50% off!? well that's the kind of tuktuk I'll hop on. #tomyumfriedrice, #mangostickyrice, and #thaigreenmilktea. Tom yum rice was fragrant and complex, but not spicy. Which is good, because too much spice detracts from the flavours. Mango sticky rice - warm glutinous rice, cool mango. Perfect execution. Just wondering why the rice is green tho. Still not a fan of Thai green milk tea's jasmine tho - but that's just me. #omnivoreric @tuktukcha

#matchalatte ice blended with #houjichasoftserve - soft serve was rich, creamy, and unctuous- matcha latte was ok. Considering the state of matcha in Singapore, it's good enough that @hvala_sg uses pure matcha #🍵 and makes it to order... #omnivoreric

When I first saw the AGC internship form I was qt sure I wouldn't get thru - so imagine my surprise on actually getting in haha. 3 weeks later, definitely found the AGC internship awesome - the camaderie forged (especially thru the last week) is unforgettable - thou shalt always remember the impromptu sermon - and the epic eye-rolling from SMU's TOP STUDENT as well haha... so long folks!! #group2 #southafrica #🇿🇦 #china #🇨🇳 #brazil #🇧🇷 #omnivoreric @jwanggzz @melmeoows @rachelyeoh @fongzy94 @agnesemilyv

Today in odd packaging choices- #rendangchicken #nasilemak - good coconutty basmati rice with a not-quite-rendang chicken #🍗 - @hillstreetcoffeeshop needs to invest in larger boxes methinks... #omnivoreric

#maggigoreng with #chicken65 (which is supposed to be a deep fried thing but seems sorely lacking in crispiness here.) Noodles were great tho- spice mix here is noticeably well-balanced #omnivoreric

#bananasplitmochafrappuccino - decided that two layers of whipped cream was overdoing it, so decided to flip the #strawberrywhippedcream to the top and put some coffee jelly at the bottom. Either way this was essentially a #neapolitanicecream in a cup #🍓🍫 #🍦#🍌 - but I prefer dark chocolate and mint chip ice creams. So not my cup of joe. But keep that #coffeejelly on the menu @starbuckssg - that's where the #jam is (and your compatriots at @starbucks_j and @starbucksph know it) #starbuckssg #starbucks_j #starbucksph #omnivoreric

So I watched some Bib Gourmand #unagi shop on YouTube(?) ytd and had serious unagi cravings. Just so happens @pepperlunchsg is having a #unagipepperrice thing going on. The unagi is quite #aldente really and they thoughtfully added #sansho #山椒 for that extra numbing tingle. I think the old #pepperrice instructions to stir everything is better ignored tho - just lightly press everything onto the hotplate and you end up with wonderfully crispy rice! #omnivoreric

#midsummer reunion #og92015 - thanks @alinaliew for coming back from durham to drag ourselves out to #geylangserai in the midst of #internshiplife y'all #omnivoreric

So I finally experienced the #geylangseraibazaar - kinda like a night #chatuchakmarket imo with #chayen all over the place at seriously jacked up prices... anyway something slightly off the beaten track (this is at Block 12 Haig Rd): #burgerbomb - essentially a #hamchimpeng with a beef patty, egg, and cheese sauce inside. The cheese really flows out like a golden lava! Overall quite good and filling... #omnivoreric

@koisingapore #matchamachiato - actually prefer this to the #matchalatte. The bittersweet experience is more pronounced in this one. No #gradienteffect here tho... #omnivoreric #koisingapore
