[brighton] the haddock fish n chips from wolfies of hove (£10.50) was absolutely divine, for a lack of better description. i wanted to have it in the place itself, but i thought i’d give my english fish n chips experience a boost by having it by the beach - and boy was it both the best and the worst decision. 😧
best - it was the ideal food for the ideal location. you have this majestic view of the ocean, you’re soaking in the ambient sounds and basking in the sea breeze that liberally sweeps the shore — all while you’re having one of the highlights of english cuisine, and fresh as you can get them.
worst – the……seagulls……which i only happened to remember about when i started sitting down at one of the benches by the beach. 💀 they’re vicious and are constantly scoping for food for a lock-on! yikes. 🤧 i could sense the imminent danger and i just know they could feel the tension in me. i had to walk along the beach for another 20 minutes before i found a shaded area to have my meal in.
i don’t know how many feel that tartar sauce suffices as a condiment when curry sauce literally exists. not like the ones served up in fast food joints here of course - those are way too sweet to pair nicely with this. this is that final boss that the game has deliberately designed for you to not defeat. whew! 🤪
if there’s one food item that i’ve always stayed away from, it’s fish n chips. i could never find a way to appreciate it, given its uncomfortably soft, almost-gelatinous texture. but the haddock fish is firmer to the bite, which feels a lot less off-putting and certainly a lot more natural to my palate. and the curry sauce? it amplified it to a level that goes beyond the thermosphere. how can any other fish n chips ever top this one? 🐟🍟💥 (9/10)
Butterfly pea tapioca❣ thairumour has it that once you’ve tasted the butterfly pea tapioca at soi 60 thai, you won’t be able to rest until you get to eat it again. it is also a feast for your eyes as well, as it comes in a striking shade of purple; a result of the butterfly pea tapioca flower. this dessert is also perfect for the hot weather, as it features a combination of pineapple sorbet, coconut milk, pomegranate, tapioca, dried pineapple, and coconut strips.
Had the privilege of trying out @linorestaurant on its opening day and i was left impressed.
lino has established itself as a contemporary, modern italian restaurant, serving atypical italian dishes but of course with a twist such as hummus with peperonata, grilled octopus and a chopped iceberg lettuce with radicchio (all great by the way).
my favourite of the night was the pizza. places that get pizza right always have a special place in my heart. the mixed mushroom pizza ($26++) had a beautiful thin crust that was crispy at the edges but slightly chewy and doughy at the centre which i love. there were also three indulgent cheeses used: fior di latte, fontina and taleggio. besides the generous portion of mushrooms, there were copious amounts of truffle cream which makes every bite one to savour.
lino is located at 7 binjai park (where peperoni’s used to be). #linosg#italiansg#pizza#burpple#burpplesg

popular among the muslim community as well as the chinese, mee siam has been absorbed into singapore’s nonya culture. mee siam means “siamese noodles” and is vermicelli soaked in a sweet and spicy gravy flavoured by tamarind (assam), dried shrimp and tau cheo (fermented bean paste). it usually comes with a boiled egg, beansprouts, tau pok (beancurd puff) and is garnished with chives.
