Bugis Junction Food Trail 2013

Bugis Junction. Located at 200 Victoria Street, and above the Bugis MRT. Easily accessible, just that I haven't been visiting often since I no longer work around that area any more. Old office used to be at North Bridge Road. Nowadays, I think of it more as a mall for youngsters? Keke.

Opportunity to get re-acquainted, presented itself in the form of Bugis Junction Food Trail, organized by and Bugis Junction. wOOohOOo!

Ten places of non-stop eating and feasting. Satiated. *pats tummy*

Bugis Junction Food Trail 2013

This event was held on 13 April 2013, and we chomped off starting from Everything With Fries, Platypus Kitchen, Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant, Siam Kitchen, Kazokutei, nydc, Fish & Co., Honguo, Yummy Bites and Maggie Moo's. We lasted six hours and slightly more.

Trail stop #1: Everything With Fries, located at Level 4, right next to the cinema!

All main courses here are served with fries, hence the name. Not just regular fries, but one may get flavoured fries like truffle-oil, garlic, or curry paired with the mains.

Steak with Tulang (Seasonal Menu)

Trail stop #2: Platypus Kitchen, located at Level 3.

Always wanted to experience gourmet-style dining, but not quite willing to bust a big hole in the wallet? Well, look no further as Platypus Kitchen aims to bring 'Affordable Gourmet' closer to us, the masses.

Spicy 'Diablo' Crab & Prawn (handmade egg tagliolini)

Trail stop #3: Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant (南翔饅頭店), located at Level 2.

Fancy savouring some xiaolong mantou (or xiao long bao), from a brand that was established more than a hundred years ago? Of course, we'd love to!

Trail stop #4: Siam Kitchen, located at Level 2.

Hankering for some halal Thai food? Siam Kitchen has it! Their version of tom yum talay, was really appetizing with its balanced sourish and spicy taste. Slurps.

Siam Siam Grill Combo Platter (from top, clockwise: squid, prawns, chicken and beef)

Trail stop #5: Kazokutei, at Level 2.

Hailing from Osaka, this place specializes in handmade udon. Liked the springiness and bounciness of the quality noodles. Simplest form of enjoyment. ごちそうさまでした!

Trail stop #6: nydc (New York Dessert Cafe), located at Level 2.

Think nydc, think mudpies! And now, one could get a 3-some there...(eh eh, don't think astray! Naughty you) It's cold, it's sweeeeet~ and so satisfying. Licks lip.

Trail stop #7: Fish & Co., located at Level 1.

Has been quite awhile since I last visited Fish & Co. and am happy to see so many new items available in their glossy-magazine-like new menu! Impressed.

Seafood Galore (king prawns, butter curry clams, grilled white fish and chips)

Trail stop #8: Honguo, located at Basement 1.

Have you tried their speciality noodles, the 'Cross Bridge Vermicelli' (过桥米线)? Interesting dining concept with an equally interesting story behind. But if noodles is not your thing then probably seafood fried rice may tickle your tastebud.

Scholar Cross Bridge Vermicelli - 15 items
(状元过桥米线 - 15)

Trail stop #9: Yummy Bites, located at Basement 1.

All things fried. Usually, I'd get fried bananas but nowadays, fried nian gao (年糕) sounds fine too. No, not that korean rice cake but the chinese type where its brown, sticky and sweet. For 'Snowball' or fried ice-cream, be prepared to wait as they'll only prepare it upon ordering.

Trail stop #10: MaggieMoo's Ice Cream and Treatery at Level 1, outer-side of the mall where the old box-office was.

Ice-creams, dizzying array of flavours, milkshakes and their promo of new flavours and sweet offers each month.
