It's my second visit (but first review) here in Shiok Shiok. We celebrated my mom's birthday here, since she was curious of the food here when I showed her my food photos from my lunch out with some close friends a few weeks ago.

Shiok Shiok Singapore Food has the same owner as Eat Fresh HK Noodles and Tuen Mun Roasts, which makes it possible for their customers to cross order from any of their sister restaurants. (Just ask the servers for the menus of each restaurant!)

The menu provided for all the 3 restaurants are all very wordy, and it is a bit overwhelming if you are not familiar with their best selling items, or if you're undecided on what to order. I hope they will have a menu with pictures soon, to stimulate the appetite of the customers.

We ordered Katong Laksa, Cold Cuts Plate (from Tuen Mun Roasts), Satay Barbeque, Sambal Kangkong, 2 cups of rice (My mom, my sister and I shared. Basically, 2 cups of rice for 3 people), White Almond Gulaman (for me and my sis), and Black and White Gulaman (for my mom).

✔ KATONG LAKSA (Php 230) - 1108811088110881108811088
For people who are not fond of spicy food, you may still order this dish and tell your server that you want it MILD. Their laksa has a lot of toppings, such as hard boiled egg, bean sprouts, cucumber strips, shrimps, kani sticks, and a variety of seafood balls (lobster ball, squid ball, among others). The noodles are al dente, and the soup is a mix of creamy and flavorful goodness! A must-try! 127860 It is good for sharing. This menu item is served piping hot in a wok with a flame underneath to maintain its temperature, so make sure to eat it right away before the soup dries up.

✔ COLD CUTS PLATE (Php 220) - 11088110881108811088
This dish was cross ordered from Tuen Mun Roasts. This consisted of: roasted barbecued pork (pork asado), soy chicken, lechon Macau, lengua, century egg, and jellyfish. Each component was well cooked and of good quality; they tasted super good too! Meat was tender and flavorful, and the century egg and jellyfish tasted fresh. They also provided us with 3 sauces: hoisin sauce, spring onion and ginger oil dip, and vinegar. It's almost as good as the cold cuts platter we usually eat during chinese lauriat parties; and it's so sulit for its price! 128525 The serving is also quite generous, as it can serve 3-4 people.

✔ SATAY BARBEQUE (Php 150 / 9 sticks) - 11088110881108811088
You have an option of: beef, pork or chicken for this item. You may order all flavors, or just one, depending on your preference. In our case, we ordered 5 beef and 4 pork, since my sister is allergic to chicken. These juicy barbecued meats are skewered for easy consumption. These are served with their version of the peanut sauce. Some of the beef sticks are a bit chewy, probably because of the cut of meat used.

✔ SAMBAL KANGKONG (Php 120) - 11088110881108811088
We usually order a vegetable dish when we eat out, and this was what my sister chose. There were no chillies in sight, which I believe is usually present in sambal dishes. The kangkong was instead sauteed in a lot of garlic, and I also hinted a fish / shrimp paste aftertaste. It tasted okay, and was a good pair with the other dishes we ordered. While it is good for sharing, I'm not sure if this is that sulit since kangkong usually just costs Php 5-10 per tali. 128586

✔ WHITE ALMOND GULAMAN / BLACK AND WHITE GULAMAN (Php 30 / regular cup) - 11088110881108811088
Usual gulaman taste, not too sweet and the portion of the gulaman vs. the drink itself is well-balanced, so you won't end up with a lot of gulaman chunks that you have to eat on its own. 128514

Note: Cereal Prawns and Salted Egg Chicken are must-tries, too! We didn't get to order them this time because of my sister's allergies.

Shiok Shiok has a hawker-like ambiance, which make you feel like you're eating street food (but with airconditioning!). They also have private function rooms for bigger groups / celebrations. Their service is genreally good, and since they don't include the service charge in their bill, make sure to leave a thank you amount for our servers! 128076

Food was great. Their Laksa was excellent. Cereal prawns are soft,tasty and fresh though the serving of the cereals were not generous compared to how Singaporeans do it. Satay was juicy and flavorful.
The place got a sg *vibes*interior. Design was quite similar to the one in makansutra food hall. It gives you the feeling that you are along the streets of Singapore. btw you can also order food from Eat Fresh. Overall food and service was good.

One of my favorite restos in the Banawe area. Went for an afternoon merienda of Hot Kopi for which they give you full cream and condensed milk. At P45 its cheap good coffee. Paired the coffee with Kaya Toast which was excellent. They were pretty generous with the butter, and it wasn't too sweet, just right. Its also around P45 per order, if I remember it right.
The interior of this place is also nice. They recreated the Singapore street scene inside. It's also cozy, and if you get a table farther back its pretty serene and relaxing.

I like this place.

3rd stop was supposed to be seoul train but they were under going renovation. So I suggested to them try out Shiok shiok in banawe and they were so happy with my suggestion. They love the place!

Shiok shiok is hawker kind of resto that serve really good singaporean/HK dishes. The place got a beautiful interior. Design was quite similar to the one in makansutra food hall in megamall. The place is spacious and expandable.The place is also a connection of three store the Tuen Mun Roast, The MilkTea store in the middle and Shiok Shiok on the other end. You can cross order between the three.

For the food we ordered their Laksa, Mantao with crab meat sauce, salted egg shrimp and a cross order of Tuen Mun roast pork. The laksa was so good. Flavorful creamy coconut milk and the seafood balls was very generous. The fried mantao was also delicious. I love the generous crabmeat sauce and it was very good. A unique take on my usual condensed milk matao. I love the Salted egg shrimp a very simple yet delicious dish. My fave as usual was the roast pork asado. Really so good and for just 195PHP for a quarter order. This good serving of pork asado is really a must try. Sulit talaga!

Overall this is the best place to go for a singaporean hawker kind of meal. No need to go to other expensive singaporean place. Gonna try their Tarik Milk Tea next time. 128522

/shok adj./
Origin: Malay
: expression of happiness and pleasure
: to express sheer delight with an experience , especially when eating great food

So I had high hopes for this meal. We ordered the following:

🍽 fried rice
🍽 char kwai teow
🍽 beef rendang
🍽 laksa
🍽 salted egg shrimp
🍽 chicken curry

What stood out to me were the kwai teow, which had the right mix of flavor; beef rendang, although not spicy, the beef was cooked to a perfection it was so soft; and the laksa, right level of spiciness 128076🏼

If you want to taste affordable and tummy-filling Singaporean food, try this resto out

If you are into the salted egg craze, you should try their salted egg chicken rice! You can also order food from Eat Fresh and they will deliver it from you. 128077

Overall it was okay (3.5/5). Food is generally good. Both the chicken and beef satay are excellent - tender and flavorful; it can go on its own or you can enjoy it with the peanut sauce that goes with it. Cereal prawns are good - soft and fresh, though the serving of the cereals were not generous compared to how Singaporeans do it. The salted egg fried chicken was a downer for me. I expected the salted egg coating to be really tasty however the salted egg flavor was very faint. The bah kuh te wasn't served piping hot.

The ambiance is 128076🏼128076🏼. It gives you the feeling that you are along the streets of Singapore. Very appropriate for what kind of food they're serving. You'll see painted walls (a fruit stand, bus terminals), fake windows and gates mounted on the wall, those roof-ish things you'll see by the entrance of stores, etc. very cute!

The biggest disappointment, however, goes to service. Since it was a busy Saturday evening, many people are in the place and the servers were too busy attending to the tables. It would take you quite a while to call their attention. At one point we were served with the chicken rice only for the server to take it back and give it to the table "who ordered it first". Expecting that another plate will be given to us, we let them take it, however it was the last order for the night so we didn't get to taste it (but I got to take a photo of it anyway). The place is still new so I'm positive that the service will improve over time. I still enjoyed my experience here.

Shiok is Malaysian Singaporean word? I thought it's a fookien term for affordable. Lol. This is a bigger version of toastbox and the enemy of Bugis (which is just near the place). We went here for Saturday dinner and the place is not that 3/4 full. They got a function room good for 25 pax. Overall it can accommodate upto 60-70 pax. The ambience is one of a kind. It's old style Chinese ambience similar to the IPman (IP師父). Eto palang, i can already give them a 3 stars rating. This place has the same owner as eat fresh.

Some of the servers were great. One in particular was just doing his job. They entertained our group by suggesting what's good to order.

128204 breakfast set of kaya toast
I still like how toastbox present their set. Shiok only has a thinner bread, pero it's wheat bread. The filling however is not satisfying. Almost no kaya jam. Butter lang. What's sad is kalajati lng ng bread ang meron (same with toast box) try opening your sandwich sometime and see their trickery. You could have your soft boiled eggs prepped by the servers. They only have hot drinks for this breakfast. I was dissapointed when i could not order a cold milk tea. But to my surprise, the server gave me cold milk tea 128538.

128204 char kwai teow
Ordinary mixed flat and glass noodles. I could remember one ingredient--the chorizo which made the dish tasty. Nonetheless its nothing stellar. the serving was good marami nmn.

128204128525 beef rendang
Oh wow this is really good. The meat was really tender (i know this maybe inconsistent) however i think they use a type of paste or powder for its flavor. I spotted a whole undissolved powder mix in our dish. Nonetheless it tastes good.

128204 nasi lemak
Mix your own nasi lemak. Basically fried chicken, sunny side up egg, peanuts, bagoong paste, cucumbers, and anchovies.

128204 pork chop
Another plain jane.

128204128525 lak sa
One of the best. Order it here. Lemongrass and chili massaging your head on a cool night. Good seafood meat.

128204128525 claypot chicken rice
Sounds ordinary but it really is good. Moistened rice by the sauce provided. Peanuts for contrasting textures plus a perfectly cooked chicken.

These are also affordable orders i just was not able to take note of their prices. No wifi or any power outlets. There's a CR also at the "street" inspired dining place. Good experience better than Bugis or toastbox ambiance.

High 4!
