Food That brings tears to your eyes

For the full review with photos, please visit me at http://fundamentally-flawed.blogspot.sg/2014/12/folks-collective-china-square-central.html

Tears welled up in my eyes as I tucked into the food. Yes, so admittedly,  the food was good, but it was even spicier.  Having quite a reputation as a drinking spot of sorts, we put the food at Folks Collective to the taste test. The Grilled Pork Neck Salad ($10.90) packs quite a mean punch and had us gathering our skirts up in buckets of sweat and dirty whistling in between gulps of ice cold water. Sips on our house wines that came surprisingly cheap due to the festive promotions ($5.50 for a glass of NY Merlot/NY Sauvignon) did aid in putting out the fire. Putting its fury aside, the dish was nothing short of excellent, tender pork neck with a slight smoky tang, well balanced with a good splash of lime, crushed nuts and cool herbs. Heat seekers wouldn't want to miss out on this one. One bite into the Signature FOLKS Wings ($6.90) revealed that bar snacks is Folk's Collective forte. The spicy notes again, part of an outrageously clever plan to up sell plenty more pints of ice cold draft beer. The wings were juicy, finger licking good with crisp heads of fried skin that shatters in the mouth. Shards of crispy fried garlic creates a separate party in the mouth.
For something a little more substantial, indulge in the Chicken Pad See-Eww ($8.90). Successfully sweet, wok-hei kissed bowl of noodles tantalises ones taste buds. A simple yet satisfying choice should you be thinking of just choosing a single dish to partake in. A wonderful addition to the table is the Prawn Omelette ($10.90), So it may appear a bit underwhelming as the prawns are chopped to tiny pieces and then scattered midst the fluffy golden crackling of fried egg, but there are apparently advantages to this method as the distribution of prawns is more even and there was zero risk of overcooked prawns.  Offering affordable cuisine with the combination of a chill out environment, Folks Collective has got all the right qualities to draw in the crowds and I'm sure I'll be back to sample more dishes in the near future.

We headed here after a hearty dinner at Wang Dae Bak as all the other desert places at Amoy area are closed on sat evening. We ordered a few ice-crea, items including the coconut ice-cream which is quite special. Generally the China Square area is quite quiet on weekends and Folks collective has only 30% at about 8.30pm.

I liked the quirkly mish mash decor with western style bar counter, chinese medicine drawers in the back and a cupboard with retro items at the side. Seating is quite spacious and I liked the ambience if this place but reading through a few other reviews, the food don't seem to be fantastic.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Singapore’s Chinatown is spilling over with good food and drinks: from top-notch fine dining to hawker centre stalwarts, cocktails to traditional regional staples. Here’s where to get what
What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
