Fresh Fruits Lab’s New Menu – Sous Vide Chicken, Soy Cod & Bak Kwa Pizza + 50% OFF Mains

Fresh Fruits Lab

It is no secret that Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is our go-to cafe in the East of Singapore, and since its opening, we have been loyally patronising the cafe for its ever-satisfying menu.

Of course, we love that the place is nicely done up too. If you haven’t been, what you are missing out on is a colourful space that is decorated to look like the coolest laboratory you will ever see.

Fresh Fruits Lab wall

As for the food, they will surprise you in ways you’d never imagine – like burgers with a fruit salad, meats and seafood with fruit innuendos, and cold pressed fruit juices in a plethora of combinations. Well, fresh fruits lab, right? Every component is covered.

Readers of Ladyironchef will receive 50% off the second main course during dinner on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from now until 28 Feb 2016 when you flash this post or quote “ladyironchef”. Reservations are required to redeem this promotion (one redemption per table).

Fresh Fruits Lab has recently introduced a new menu and of course we had to be among the firsts to try! Here are the highlights from Fresh Fruits Lab’s new menu.


Everything with Fries – Har Jeong Kai Burger & The New Ice Cream Accident

Everything with Fries

Having been in the scene for almost 6 years now, Everything with Fries is a familiar name to most. A bistro concept by the folks behind renowned local chocolate brand Awfully Chocolate, you can be absolutely sure that the folks put in the same amount of dedication and precision in their food here.

Do not be confused with their (even more) casual concept at Orchard Central (OC). EwF is presented in more of a grab-and-go fast food style, whereas Everything with Fries at Holland Village is more of a sit-down, table-service style and a tad more refined.

Of soups, salads and desserts, here is what we loved about Everything with Fries at Holland Village.

Exclusive to Ladyironchef readers: flash this post or quote ‘Ladyironchef’ to receive a complimentary cup of Nutella Shake (worth S$8), limited to one free cup per receipt (valid till 31 December 2015).

The Butchers Club – Famous Burger Joint From Hong Kong To Open In Singapore

The Butcher Club Singapore

The Butchers Club Burger – widely known as the best burger joint in Hong Kong – is opening its first restaurant in Singapore at Clarke Quay on 2 October 2015.

Blackbird Burger


Unbelievably juicy, Blackbird shows us what a really good deep-fried chicken patty really is with their take on the Southern Burger (S$16.80), featuring two very photogenic charcoal beef buns. We love slices of cheese that top the chicken patty off for a salty but very satisfying overall taste.

The main draw of Fatboy’s is the ability to design your own burger with their wide range of ingredients.

If all else fails, the Fatboy’s Fat Basterd Burger (S$19.80) that includes a plethora of sinful, yet delectable ingredients will save your day.

Little Hiro Ramen Burger


This is the most unique burger on the list as it is the only one that features two slices of ramen ‘bun’ instead of the conventional bread bun. The Chicken Kaarage Ramen Burger (S$10.20) wowed us with the crispness yet still-springy ramen noodles.

Omakase Burger Singapore


The classic Omakase Cheeseburger (S$14.90) is dubbed as the “Best Burger in Singapore” by some, and we can see why. The hand-ground beef patty sandwiched between two burger buns tasted like heaven. Amazingly, the beef patties are so juicy on the numerous occasions we went. That’s the kind consistency we love!

Wild Rocket Burger


The Wild Rocket Beef Burger (S$18.50) sits pretty with a side of fries. Although the burger looks plain, it tasted pretty amazing. The patty is sandwiched together with arugula, sarawak pepper cream and sun-dried tomato relish. No extra hoo-ha, just simple goodness.

Messy Mexican - Third & Sixth Bistrobar


Biting into this really is messy, but it will be more than worth it. The Messy Mexican (S$16) at Third & Sixth Bistrobar shows us how a Mexican-style burger should be done with the added use of beef chilli and guacamole. The flavours in this beautiful are dimensional and very intriguing!

Two Blur Guys


Two Blur Guys specialises in burgers and they have a variety of different meats. We enjoyed the classic Prime Beef Burger (S$14.95) and Pulled Pork Burger (S$13.85) the best.
