My experience at Malaysia Local Delights - Lok Lok (Tanjong Katong)

Are you getting sick and tired of having steamboat or mookata all the time with your friends? My clique and I decided to go for a change by trying out Lok Lok buffet located at Tanjong Katong. Hmmm? Surprising to you right? Cos only Malaysia sells Lok Lok (I know Taiwan and Japan got sell but theres a different name for it!). FYI, if you are wondering what is Lok lok, it is actually a very over-whemlimg local street food delight in Malaysia. If you travel to JB often for supper, then Lok lok should be no stranger to you. 

This place is so accessable as there are so many buses to get to this location. Such as Bus 31 (From Tamp), 43, 76, 135, 197, 10 and many more buses! 

The name of the shop is called Malaysia Local Delights Restaurant. Besides the Lok lok buffet they have, they also serve normal zi char dishes such as the popular KL Hokkien Mee (my favourite!!), Malaysia Otah (super generous serving) and many more! Well, I think most of the customers come here for the Lok Lok buffet. Hence, one negative point at this restaurant is you will only experience the steamboat style of cooking your own lok lok but not the BBQ grilled ones! However, plus points for being one of the first restaurants to bring in Lok Lok to Singapore! Now I do not have to travel to JB to eat! 

*Checks off my list, a new place for supper*


There's a durian stall near-by so if you still feel hungry after supper/dinner, you can go enjoy the king of fruits! Yums!! 


Ambience is just right, cleanliness is about 3.5/5. Thoughtful of having fans surrounded around the area so you won't feel humid at all. *Thumbs Up* 


Like what I said, you can come here for supper too! They close at 2.30am!! Now if you have any midnight cravings, this is gonna be the right place for you!

Menu offers more than 5 choices of soup base. (Warning for Mala because it's really very spicy!) However, if you like to eat spicy stuff, then you will like it very much! I selected the chicken soup and Mala! You will be allowed to pick up to 2 soup base! They are refillable. The total cost of per person for this buffet was $26.50 (includes free flow of drinks and desserts.) At first I thought it was costly, but after finishing the meal I thought the price was reasonable and I would definitely come back again. With the amount of Lok Lok you can eat, it will be value for money.


 Quite a decent amount of fried food to choose. I recommend the fishcake & fried you tiao!


For raw food, there are a vary of choices. I recommend the prawns (they actually have two types of prawns, one is they already peeled for you and another not, so it really depends on you if you are concerned with hygiene, if you are a lazy person like me then just go with the one that is peeled for you already.) I also like the quail eggs (don't eat too much high cholesterol la), marinated chicken, meatballs, button mushrooms, japanese mushrooms. Overall, there are quite an amount of choices for you to pick but I strongly urge you to take minimal portions for each first before you take more. Some of the items you might not like after a first few bites, like the sausage that I ate. It's not that bad but it didn't suit my likings. This way you won't waste food too!


Prawns - 4/5



Pork Belly - 3.5/5, Mushrooms 4.5/5


What's Cooking?!! See what I meant about the Mala soup being so SPICY!!


I was addicted the prawns! I guess it's my favourite! *Yums*


Chicken - 4/5


Beef - 2.5/5


Hahahah! Are you eyes burning?!?! I felt that way too!


They have noodles, tang hoon, seafood and many more choices!

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay! That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

My experience at Charlie Brown Cafe (Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited back to Charlie Brown Cafe as I was told that they had revamped their menu and there were a few new offerings on their menu. Charlie Brown Cafe now has 2 outlets mainly in Singapore, one located at Cathay Cinleisure Orchard, a popular youth destination, and One KM Mall at Paya Lebar.  The entire cafe is designed in a Charlie Brown theme, if you had watched the movie, Peanuts or you grew up watching Charlie Brown, then you should be familiar with the characters in the show/movie. The entire cafe takes up about 30-40 seats and the ambience was conducive.  Root Beer Float & Coffee Macchiato Shot Mashed Potatoes  Price: $4.20  Made from fresh potatoes topped with gravy and chicken chipolata (sausage). The mashed potato was fluffy and wasn't lumpy just maybe the sauce was slightly overpowering which diminishes the taste of the mashed potatoes. I would prefer if the sauce was lesser. However, it was a great combination of addi

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving  Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt.  You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme.  Ambience: 7.5/10  Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme.  Tropical Smoothies  (Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20  I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-ba
