Billy Bombers Review

Billy Bomber has been around for years. If you want to travel back into history, here's the place where you should go. Every corner of the restaurant is thoughtfully decorated, it felt like I was stepping into the history of Hollywood with those neon lights. If you take away these decorations, would the quality of the food survive on its own?

109 Teochew Yong Tau Foo

If you're working around Clarke Quay or City Hall, there is a reputable Yong Tau Foo place that you must visit.  109 Yong Tau Foo was first established 35 years ago, focusing on manufacturing and selling Fishball and Yong Tau Foo before they finally opened their own shop. Because of the large office crowd, the shop has two storeys and ample seats available. You don't have to worry about not getting a seat even though the queue is so long that sometimes, the tail of the queue is from the next block.
This is one of the widest varieties of Yong Tau Foo selections I have ever seen. You can practically choose any type of noodles, including Laksa. There are two large open refrigerators for you to select your ingredients from, and they boast of using the best quality ingredients such as fresh yellow tail fish. 
Each bowl of Yong Tau Foo costs about S$6.00 (min 6 ingredients), which is probably one of the most affordable food options in that area. You can add your ingredients from S$0.60-$1.20.

Tips to take note of:
1. Go for the dry noodles instead of the soup, because their homemade sauce is really delicious! 
2. There's a hidden staircase to level 2 for non-smokers.
3. They only sell canned drinks. 
4. I went a few times to this outlet, but the quality of the food does not seem to be consistent. Their service is really fast.

Best Ramen Restaurant (with free flow of eggs)

Where is the Best Ramen Restaurant in Singapore? If you have friends coming from overseas, let them give Teppei Restaurant a try. It is a small traditional Japanese store that has high turnover (you eat and you leave), because the queue to eat at this restaurant is really long. While queuing, you may get a glass of Japanese barley tea (free flow). I queued for about 50 minutes before getting in.
You can customise your ramen by selecting the soup base, the ramen noodles, and egg through a form. There is a bowl of boiled eggs on the table, where you can eat as many as you like.

I chose the one with Nori (seaweed) and light soup base (S$14.50). The broth was perfect - not too salty and the ramen was springy to taste! The cheapest option you can get from the store is at only S$10.50, yet the quality is comparable to many other high-end Japanese restaurants here in Singapore.

You have to grind this by yourself. I don't really like mine too powdery as I love the burst of flavours when biting onto it.

I'd say that it's best you do not go with a large group of people as it might difficult to get seats. There is also an option to reserve seats!

Best Taiwanese dessert in Singapore

This Taiwanese dessert joint serves a mix of hot and cold desserts made from ingredients sourced directly from Taiwan. There is only one thing that I can say about the atmosphere: whimsical. With vertical strips of baby pink gently whispering 'fluffy', you get the idea that the desserts they offer will make you feel like you're on cloud 9. How perfect are their desserts then?
