Best beef I’ve had in a while.

THIS.

Ordered it medium rare but it came out mediumish instead, but oh so tender, oh so well done!

So yes. There were only 3 of us, we had a 580g steak to share which was just nice, I would say.

The US Certified Black Angus Ribeye Steak comes with potato wedges, caramelized onions and beef fried rice. Going for $10/100g, Well worth it. The sides don’t look much but they’re actually very good too! Potato wedges are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. You can’t really go wrong with caramelized onions. Beef fried rice was fried with beef fat and dark sauce, packs a punch in flavour.

Dinner @ OKB

Finally checked out OKB (Our Kind of Bakery / One Kampung Bahru)! Disclaimer: it was opened by my talented friend Jeremy Cheok, but this review is IMPARTIAL!!

Anyways, here it is! A cosy little nook off Kampung Bahru. We came in a group of 6 and had a bit of trouble getting a table. Looks like they cater to small groups of max 4 – the seating area isn’t very big; in fact the kitchen takes up most of the floor space!

Cameron had this half wrap (omelette?) – $5

image

Asian Roasted Veggies – $8

Another so-so dish, but I like daikon and it’s loaded with it so. I liked this.

Roast Pork Belly, $20

What we came for, but sadly, was just an okay dish – skin was nice and crispy, fats melted in your mouth, but that’s kind of everything you expect from sio bak right?

Roast Beef, $21

Well worth it, the cut was great, the sauce was a good balance between tangy and sweet, onions were a little spicy which cut through all the rich flavour. Meat was perfectly done. Everyone agreed that this was the star of the meal. (Until we had dessert.)

Belacan Midjoints – $10

Small in size, but packs quite a punch. Appreciated that the belacan wasn’t too overpowering. Skin was crispy, meat was tender.

image

Shepherd’s Pie – $10

Kind of expected a traditional shepherd’s pie, this one surprised me because it had 3 meatballs inside. Not a bad thing, not a bad thing. The sweet potato mash was a nice touch.

image

Sticky Date Pudding, $9

image

Peanut Butter Cupcake, $3

image

I don’t remember what this was called, but it was like a soft cookie filled with chocolate bits, $3.50

image

Lemon Cream Tart, $3.50

If you’re a cupcake person I’d really recommend their cupcakes!!! It made all of us make very strange sounds (of pleasure). In general, the deserts really won me over and outshone the tapas dishes. Oh but that beef dish was goood. Gogogo. I’d like to return for their brunch one day.

Teenhood.

I suddenly remembered a blog I kept as a teen and went to access it – some of the stuff in there made me cringe; but it was probably the best favor I did to myself. Write. I could tell that I was immensely lonely, and that writing was my only outlet. And though 90% of the stuff in there is shit there’s 10% of brilliance that I think only teenage angst and emoness could provoke. I actually wrote poems, read, painted and drew a lot more. I almost forgot about that part of my life, and I just spent hours reading through my teenage years. I was pretty much depressed, jaded and trapped.

Glad I’m not a teen anymore.

A list of instashops (an ongoing WIP)

There seems to be a new trend in town – blogshops are using Instagram to promote their goods. You can take a look at their inventory through their “Instashops” and usually, they’ll provide a number to WA (Whatsapp) your orders to. Because of the way Instagram displays pics, it does get pretty hard to discern what items they are selling / if it’s actually does (owners do “shoutouts for shoutouts” as well, where they cross market their products on each others’ feeds).

Here’s a curated list of InstaShops from Singapore, featuring quality PO (pre-order) accounts & quality instocks accounts:
