Hip asian food restaurant found in the area of Banawe, QC. The setting instantly gave a nostalgic Singapore vibe. Restaurant design is derived from old asian style complete with classic posters, vintage tin cans, and hand-painted walls. Cult favorites are Laksa, Cereal Prawns, Salted Egg Chicken, and Kaya Toast Set.

We went during downtime so the restaurant was not full. We called the restaurant for advanced orders and food was served upon our arrival. Exceptional service, great food, and the price points is affordable.

We also ordered Avocado shake and the glass is labeled Eat Fresh. We were advised that customers can cross order at Eat Fresh Banawe. On the side note: fill in your singaporean cravings after watching Crazy Rich Asians at Shiok Shiok. They are opening a branch in San Juan soon 🇸🇬

Most of my high school best friends are taking up Med, and only had around a month of break before they start internship. Last Saturday was their last day of "freedom", so we decided to meetup for their last hurrah.

We were quite broke, them from all the travelling they did for the past month, and me due to the increase in prices of everything!!! 128517 We decided to visit Banawe, and they wanted to try out Sinaporean food, so I suggested Shiok Shiok. 128522

We got there at around 11:30 AM, and were told that there are limited seats available, because there is a party that is occupying their entire inner area. Good thing we were still able to grab a seat, and we got the following:

✅ KATONG LAKSA (Php 255) - 1108811088110881108811088
Until now, I am still undecided whether Bugis or Shiok Shiok serves the better tasting Laksa. I just really love them both so much! 128150 It is composed of creamy and spicy soup that will surely warm you up, plus lots of seafood toppings, and other shabu shabu type of balls. 128522 The noodles were perfectly firm, too. I enjoy how the creaminess of the coconut milk cut through the spiciness, giving off a well balanced flavor to the soup. This is already good for sharing. Great value for money!128076

✅ BEEF RENDANG (Php 280) - 1108811088
Okay, this was not what I thought it'll be. When it was served, we were all surprised at how small the serving size is. Also, it looked more like a beef stew to me than Rendang. The taste of coconut milk / coconut cream was nowhere to be found! 128546 The beef was tough and dry, and the flavor didn't seep into the meat AT ALL. I don't think this dish deserves to be called "Beef Rendang". 128547 Hope they improve on this ASAP!

✅ SALTED EGG PRAWNS (Php 395) - 1108811088110881108811088
They serve one of the most affordable and delicious Salted Egg Prawns I've ever had! Creamy and tasty salted egg sauce coats each piece of perfectly cooked big prawns, and will surely make you want to eat plenty of rice. 128517 I love how they didn't scrimp on all the ingredients, and this dish alone with already leave you wanting to come back here. Authentic and yummy!

Shiok Shiok's ambiance is really nice, and will make you feel like you're eating by the busy streets in Singapore. Ventilation / airconditioning was not as good during our visit, but it's probably because there are a lot of people in the reserved area. Service was good, and ths food was served promptly. 128150

If you're searching for authentic tasting Singaporean food, make sure to visit Shiok Shiok to try out their dishes -- I'm sure you won't regret it! 128521

Interior is love! Remind me of the streets of old Singapore. Like you're in a Hawker centers in Singapore. A wonderful experience especially if one is craving for the street food joints in Singapore, Malaysia, etc.  

Salted Egg Chicken
It's the right amount of sauce and taste that comes with it. No matter how ashamed I am to admit it, I've bought into the salted egg trend.

Cereal Chicken Rice
I had to try this and I'm glad I did! Cereal was smothered all over the chicken, so much that I couldn't finish the cereal, a foodie sin. They gave a generous amount of meat and definitely the cereal and rice.

Cereal Prawns
Those prawns were fat and sweet, and their flavor complemented the thick and gooey salted egg sauce perfectly. It would've been a bit more enjoyable with a bit more heat

The service is fast. The place is cozy and clean. The price of the menu is reasonable.  Don’t forget to order shakes because they are worth it!  We will be back to try their other food.

Shiok Shiok is one of those restaurants in Banawe that you could never go wrong. Aside from the endless chinese food offered in Banawe, Shiok Shiok offers Singaporean Laksa which is damn heavenly.

But sadly I did't order it today because 1. I was kinda full from the coffee I had prior to this meal and 2. The serving for Laksa here is good for 2-3 persons. The friends I'm with are not that big of a fan so we each ordered our own meal.

We had 2 Nasi Lemak and 1 Porkchop Rice. Damn that porkchop rice was hugggeee!! Busog lusog for 1 serving. The Nasi Lemak was ok. Not the best but twas okay. We ordered also squidballs and tiger balls that took forever to serve ☹️ my friends already finished their meal before the tiger rolls were served.

I probably should stick to ordering Katong Laksa when we visit again or maybe try the Chicken Rice since I heard it's good also!

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
