Taste Affair, Amoy Street Food Centre
This stall (#02-128 Amoy Street Food Centre, 7 Maxwell Road) is by Joshua Khoo, one half of the duo behind Saveur/Saveur Art. Apparently these couple of guys are no longer related to that Saveur Group they had created and are currently treading their own beaten paths.
The food's pretty easy to figure out. A few meat/ingredient options to choose from and then a choice of either flavoured (saffron) rice or capellini. This was shrimp and chorizo with capellini. Plenty of umami going round from the bits of kombu, grated Parmigiano Reggiano, tobiko, chorizo and mushrooms underscored by a luxuriant coating of their soft poached egg. But a particular edge seemed missing from all the flavours.
I don't mind coming back to try their sake butter clams.
