What he ate: Glutinous rice balls to celebrate Chap Goh Meh, or the last day of the Chinese New Year

Yummy factor: Well if Chinese New Year has to end, at least there’s “boing boing” tang yuan with sweet soup. See that look of longing on Xu Bin’s dog, Captain? We feel the same.

Cynthia Koh

What she ate: Half boiled eggs and kopi from Toastbox

Yummy factor: Staying in bed versus eating is as tough a choice as warm bed versus bathroom when you need to pee but don’t want to move. As Cynthia hashtagged, “The struggle is real.” We get you, Cynthia.

What he ate: Mango purée, bacon jam, liver parfait on fried chicken skin at Cure

What he ate: Budae jigae

Yummy factor: Confession: We judge Korean army stew based on the amount of spam it has. Don’t you? Second confession: Our glasses often get fogged up when we eat simmering budae jigae because we dig in lightning fast. Gotta snatch the spam before moochers ask for a slice.

What she ate: Beehoon soup on her eldest son Brayden’s birthday 

Yummy factor: At least it’s healthier than a piece of cake - but for Brayden’s sake we hope he enjoyed birthday sweets on top of this. (Side note: You know you’re nit picky when you appreciate the gorgeous, bright green hue of the veggies here because it means they weren’t overcooked. The soggy, greyish-green variety is just sad.)

What he ate: Cold soba, hotate, ebi, ukua and uni bowl from Mojo, Shane’s new eatery 

Yummy factor: That’s a whole load of umami heaped on a plate. Nutritiously balanced AND delectable? There’s no going wrong with that.

What she ate: Thai boat noodles in Bangkok

Yummy factor: You can tell by the condiment caddy that this is the real deal. Silky kway teow swimming in intensely satisfying, dark and robust pork broth probably tastes all the better when it’s served at a rugged, hole-in-the-wall vendor like this.

What she ate: Nasi lemak and bao with Ben Yeo

Yummy factor: A nice fluffy bao is satisfying, but between the fragrance of nasi lemak and the addictive crispiness of ikan bilis and peanuts, Ben’s grub is our pick.

What she ate: A simple yet colourful lunch including fried pork belly and stir fried tofu with vegetables in Penang

Yummy factor: One look at those tender, savoury pork belly morsels is enough to make our mouths water. Other than the flavourful dishes, the traditional red tablecloth and wooden window panels are giving us all the old-school, taste-of-home feels.
