Geylang Serai

It was a short casual food trail along Geylang Serai. Being a Friday night, place was packed.  Here are some of the things we had...



Salted egg churros with sauce that was very watery. I haven't been a very churros person but the 3 churros lovers that came with me didn't seem to like it that much.

There is much Thai milk tea avail there this year. One of it is this huge ass one...


Pretty good Thai milk tea and Thai green milk tea. The Thai green milk tea had a slight peppermint taste!



Melted cheese above some mashed potato with ham. A little salty for some.


Some watermelon drink. One of my favourite for the night. Nothing fanciful in taste - pretty much just watermelon ice blended with a prettier exterior!

Was a short trip as it was just too crowded.

Bibing

Feels like we very 哈韩 recently. Keep eating bingsu! Actually we wanted to head over to Creamier but it is closed on Mondays.

This bimbimbap bingsu is quite interesting! Really does look like bimbimbap!


And it's quite good! The centre is yoghurt and all the fruits are quite fresh! 

Very into shaved ice and bingsu lately!

Bingki

I had a sudden craving for bingsu and upon googling, I realised this place is open 24 hours!

Located at tanjong pagar plaza, it is near the market. 

We ordered 2 flavours to share...




The macha one was ordered simply Coz it looks more Instagram or social media worthy. Hahaah but it was not bad of Coz.

The rice cake flavour was much nicer in taste. The ice melts in the mouth and I really like the powder together with bits of peanuts. Yums!

The Green Bucket (Deliveroo)

This green bucket caught my eye when deciding what to order for a lunch in day.

It looks a bit like salad yet not so much so. The wonderful thing is it really does take only about 30 mins to reach me because I was so busy that by the time I found time to order it was already lunch time.





The items were all not bad except he Parmesan cheese bits which had a mutton taste to it. The food in general gives a healthy feel to it and is value for money for a delivery.

This meal was ordered also due to a promo between grab and Deliveroo so I have been more inclined to call for a grab than uber recently. However, a recent episode where I was charged for a grab ride that did not take place, yet the grab customer service still has yet to refund me really puts me off. Their friendly competitor is much much much more efficient in that sense. They process feedbacks and refunds within about half a day. They make me feel secured and assured when I use card payment to settle my rides whereas grab doesn't. Grab makes me feel I'm crying to 4 walls.

Esquina

Cynthia offered to buy me a birthday meal at a place of my choice of location so i chose Esquina! 



The place is a rather small place with seats mainly around the kitchen (similar to Burnt Ends or even smaller) but that's really where all the action is! In fact, very therapeutic seeing the chefs at work! And because the things here are all so special, I find myself going ooooOOo ... Or ahhhhh... Or what is that??? 

Like this item...




I would not imagine this is some minced cod fish on the bottom and I think some beet root thingy on the top. It was soooo good!

The Spanish omelette...


A regular item in a Spanish restaurant but done differently by them.

Burrata...


I usually like my burrata as a big smack chunk. Theirs while its in small bite sizes, it's damn good! It's with beetroot and some roasted walnuts. Amazing explosive taste! Love it!

Scallop carpaccio ....


Also really good!

Sea urchin lobster bisque soup...


Let's not even talk about how interestingly it is served, the soup was thick amidst that foam part. It is so damn good!

Roasted cauliflower which is also damn nice!



And what the grilled octopus...



Omg, texture was amazing! The BBQ was just right!

Pork and beef cannelloni...



Very very thin pasta wrapped around in minced beef n pork. Amazing texture!

and Esquina is a very modern take in Spanish food.

I will be back Esquina! Coz u are too good!
