Sin Lee Foods @ Bukit Ho Swee | Tiong Bahru, Singapore

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

More than just your regular café spot, Sin Lee Foods aims to introduce and cultivate a change in the café scene by brainstorming unique and fanciful traits for their dishes. Sin Lee Foods has also took over the world Instagram with their bestseller, Salted Egg Sweet Potato Fries and Aburi Broccoli Salad. In conjunction with their first year anniversary, they have decided to add in a few interesting items into their menu. Read on!

Let's start with their popular mainstay, Salted Egg Sweet Potato Fries | $11 - fried (not once but twice) sweet potato fries, topped with Sin Lee's housemade salted duck’s egg sauce and crispy curry leaves. What more can I ask for? It's a party in my mouth!

Aburi Broccoli Salad | $13 - white balsamic and papadium over smoky torched broccoli florets, and red sugar on the side. This will be a good start for people who dislike veggies, you will never see broccoli the same way again haahaa.

Beef & Grains | $25 - seared marbled striploin (180g) served pink, alongside fired and runny free range hen’s egg over wet orzo “rice”, and topped with sweet sour ginger, furikake (a dry Japanese seasoning) and scallions. The striploin were perfectly prepared.

Last but not least, the highly raved Sin Lee’s Fried Chicken & Waffle | $21.90 - juicy boneless chicken leg on a iron waffle with house slaw and melted maple butter. It tasted like prawn paste chicken seasoning for the fried chicken, it's good even on its own.

Now let's bring on the new creations, starting with Skillet Roasted Pork Chop | $23 - skillet roasted free range pork chops with  fried & runny free range hen’s egg, served alongside the peranakan acar and drizzled with housemade Dijon sauce.

Do not be alarm when you slice the pork and see a pinkish centre, it is cooked and is safe for consumption. The reason why it has a pink centre is because of the process called brining. Brining meat is like marinating it to make it more flavourful and tender, it also cooks faster than usual.

Chinese Wedding Squid | $14 - fried baby squid drench with housemade sweet glaze, accompanied with free range hen’s egg, mayo, katsuobushi (also known as bonito flakes) and toast. Love how the squid gives the extra crunch when you mixed them up.

Truffled Asian Doughnut | $12 - crimini mushroom & “hazelnut” butter puree with white truffle oil, freshly grated parmesan, sweetened milk and housemade pesto, and topped with crisp Asian doughnut. Kudos to this interesting dish! At first we thought it was somewhat like the Chinese Mui Choy with Pork. This photo really do not do justice to how well it goes together.

The new addition to the sweets menu includes my favourite, Earl Grey Tiramisu | $13 - caramelized milk soaked sponge fingers, housemade earl grey steeped mousse and fresh berries. Instead of the traditional Tiramisu with rum, this is infused with earl grey, and I won't say no to berries too.

The Durian Waffle | $17 - pure mao shan wang durian flesh, creamy coconut ice cream, coconut jelly, condensed milk and coconut flakes over the iron waffle. Could it be a Singapore inspired dish? Not a fan of the combination as a whole, durian lovers may still give this a try though.

Warm Banana & Walnut Cake “French Toast” | $11 - custard soaked banana cake slice pan roasted in butter topped with vanilla ice cream, burnt banana, and caramel. Banana cake tasted so heavenly! It's almost like sticky date pudding but with the banana aroma.

I would like to thanks Sean, owner of Sin Lee Foods for always serving up food that satisfy our tummies, greatly appreciate for the warm hospitality whenever we visit.
