By @FeiEats When my friend invited us for a meal at her sister’s newly opened Izakaya, we certainly weren’t expecting Ippai to be a modern and sleek restaurant located at Dorsett Residences. The place looked expensive, but we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the prices were not too bad and more importantly, there were […]
This dish is quite similar to fried Hokkien mee, but instead of yellow noodles and beehoon, it uses a very unique chewy mee sua which is specially imported from Malaysia and instead of prawn broth, they use a broth made of blue swimmer crabs and lala. The texture of the mee sua is unlike the usual soft mee sua which appeals to toothless grannies. Instead, it's got a very unique chewy texture which is more like a beehoon, but more toothy like a pasta. The mee sua is first fried to infuse it with wok hei before being braised in the gravy to which extra lala is added for sweetness and topped with pork lard. It's the best thing I have tasted in a while! 4.5/5
Although it lacks the sexy leopard spots of a Vera Pizza Napoletana (VPN), the new pizza crust is a huge improvement over the one I last tasted. It is made with Italian 00 flour and left to rise for 6 hours before it's punched down and left to ferment overnight. It is then stretched by hand and baked in the 280 degree C wood fired oven for 4mins. It won't qualify for VPN status but it is as good if not better than 95% of the pizzas I have eaten at Italian restaurants here in Singapore.

House of Briyani: Nice Rice! Briyani Challenge Round 3 of 3
I am not sure if it is fair to enter this Briyani as a challenger because they don’t actually sell Indian Briyani. They sell Afghan, Iranian and Turkish Dum Briyani instead. At $5.80 per plate it is definitely one of the more expensive Briyanies around. But as you will see, it is a matter of, […]
Famous Islamic Beryani: 90 years and still going! Briyani Challenge Round 2 of 3
Now this is probably the GrandDaddy of Briyanies and definitely one of the oldest eateries that I have blogged. Its been around since 1921 and when you walk into the restaurant, it feels as if you just walked through a time portal. Man, when this place was fashionable, my father wasn’t even an idea yet! […]
