Bugis Junction Food Trail with Restaurants & Cafes (Food Review)

I love food trails, and always organises really good ones. This one started at 11am in the morning and ended only at 6plus in the evening. We had 10 food stops to go to, so it really was a day of non-stop eating.

This post is gonna be picture heavy. So, if your stomach is growling right now, I'd suggest you read it after you've put some food in it. I'm gonna let the pictures do most of the talking, unless I think it's really good or there's something about the dish I have to mention. Also, I'm not gonna post pictures of all the food we tried, most of it but not all.

Ready? Here we go!


It's not my first time dining at EWF. I've always loved this place for the food. So I was happy to find out that this was one of our stops.

One Egg Soup
I adore this soup so much you have no idea, it's delightful! And I think this soup is unique to EWF. See the egg? And the taste and texture of the soup is just divine. Not too watery, not too thick, just perfect. I'd love to have this everyday (especially for breakfast) really.

Wild NZ King Salmon
Not my first time eating this either. Love it too. I prefer my salmon to be semi-cooked, and this is cooked exactly like that. And together with that crispy crust on top, ahhh, so good.

Char-Grilled Char Siew
Again, not my first time having it. It's a handrolled pork belly roulade and char-grilled with garlic sauce. I love pork belly, it's fatty goodness haha. And this was really tender, juicy and the garlic sauce was like a burst of flavour in your mouth.

Tandoori Chicken Sandwich
Who doesn't love tandoori? I like how the sauce didn't make the bread soggy.

Grilled Pork Chop
I love pork chops, but they're tricky to cook because if you don't get the timing right, the meat will turn out tough. This wasn't too tough but it could be slightly more tender. If so, it'd be perfect.

We also tried the Skinny Wings, Char-grilled Beef Karubi and Steak with Tulang. The wings were good, not spectacular but still good. Couldn't try the beef and tulang cos well, I don't eat beef. :/

Location: Level 4
Opening Hours: 11am to 10pm (Mon-Thurs), 12pm to 10.30pm (Fri, Sat & Sun)

I really like the logo - minimal, clean and structured.

 photo P1020382_zpsa9dba023.jpg
My favourite wall decor in the restaurant. Do you also realise, it looks like Platypus' logo?

Crab cakes, Risotto Balls and Truffle Fries.

I would recommend you to get their truffle fries because it is super (and I really mean, SUPER) affordable, it's only $6.90! Plus, you can actually see the truffle, actual pieces of it. Although it's not the best truffles fries I've had so far, it comes close. And at $6.90, it's definitely worth your every penny.

Cocktail Beers

Cocktail Beer - Momo Lychee Ale
May I just say that this is a MUST TRY? I definitely prefer this over any normal beer, even Kronenbourg Blanc. They have a few cocktail beers to choose from, but this is my favourite - Momo Lychee Ale. There's fresh peach and lychee nectar, mint sprigs and the lychee fruit in it. Does it not sound delicious?

Spicy Diablo Crab & Prawn Pasta

Saffron & Caviar Risotto

Squid-Ink Scallop Ragout
I've always wanted to try squid-ink pasta but I've never dared to because I don't want the ink to stain my teeth. But this one's different! The ink will not stain your teeth because the squid ink is rolled into the pasta dough itself! I think that's really thoughtful and it's also really good. So if you've been stopping yourself from trying squid-ink pasta for the same reason as me, try it at Platypus!

 photo P1020421_zps0c7d1b87.jpg
Iced Sea-salt Caramel Cake
Oh, this was such a joy to eat! Because, they added popping candy at the top! With every bite, you can hear and feel the candy popping in your mouth, it's like the sound of rain hahaha. Popping candy aside, the cake's still very delightful.

Opening Hours: 12pm to 10pm


#3: Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant

 photo P1020431_zps7def2cee.jpg
小龙包/Xiao Long Baos (XLB)
As the restaurant's name suggests, you know that their 小龙包/Xiao Long Baos are their most popular dish.

 photo P1020434_zps222bcd80.jpg
King sized Nanxiang Crab Roe Steamed Soup Bun
I've never seen anything like this before haha. We thought it's a huge version of a XLB but it's actually soup in a bun.

Tom Yum Seafood Soup
I found this a little too spicy and I usually can take spicy food pretty okay.

 photo P1020452_zps6b657442.jpg
Deep-fried Whole Garoupa Fish with Chilli Dip / Mango Sauce
Fish lovers, I'd recommend you to get this.

Zaru Udon
The udon was perfect. It's springy and the texture's smooth, perfect for slurping it up haha. I highly recommend this.

Boo Boo
Such an adorable name! It's a chocolate cake and definitely a must-try! If you've read my "about me" section, you'd know that I'm not the biggest fan of chocolates unless they're really good. And I really like this one so it's definitely good I say!

Goldmine Cheesecake
Mmm yes cheesecakeeeee.

 photo P1020483_zps18b907ef.jpg
Threesome Mudpie
Hahaha I seriously love the names of their cakes. This one's called so because it has 3 layers - chocolate  chip cookie dough, strawberry cheesecake ice-cream and graham crackers.

Jedi Mudster
Again, the name! Hahahaha. Okay, back to the cake, double chocolate chip and Macadamia Nut Ice Cream with Oreo base and homemade cookie crumbs (that's not all!), and topped with chocolate fudge and whipped cream. This was my favourite cake of them all! The burst of flavours in your mouth, damn, I'd love to have one right now.

And they also have really cute "party hats"!

Side note, I really like how my curls turned out that day hahaha. And the humidity/temperature that day made my fringe do an awkward lift pointing out thing. Okay moving on.

Pumpkin Fries with Salted Egg Yolk
I love salted egg. This was good because you can taste both the pumpkin and the salted egg. It was a good balance.
