It’s probably much harder to get a table now but we have fond memories dining at @OdetteRestaurant. TGIF!
What the duck? Awesome Peking Duck from the one week old Kai Duck on level 5 of Ngee Ann City! By the same team behind @KaiGardenSG, the menu here is more duck centric and this Irish Peking Duck is simply delicious. Expect a very crispy skin and tender meats! It’s a more casual dining concept as opposed to Kai Garden, where prices are more accessible. This whole Peking Duck is priced at $68++!
Cravings. Need another bowl of this delicious Wanton Mee from Chef Kang. Happy Thursday!
New found favourite combination at @Kimme.SG, Angus Beef with Foie Gras!
Still had to satisfy our laksa craving despite the haze! One of our go to stalls at Hong Lim for laksa other than BCM or CKT. Masks on everyone!
Been an exciting night for Singapore’s culinary scene with the latest Singapore @MichelinGuide 2019 announced! Quite a couple of shocks and surprises, and congrats to @LesAmisRestaurant for being elevated to 3 Michelin Stars this year! There are a total of 2 restaurants with 3 Michelin Stars, 5 restaurants with 2 Michelin Stars, and 37 restaurants with 1 Michelin Star on the Michelin Guide Singapore 2019.
Checked out the new Thai restaurant @ChalermThaiSG located in @CapitolKempinski! The menu is a mix of familiar Thai dishes l and are fairly reasonably priced, with some of our favourites being the Stir Fried Soft Shell Crab with Yellow Curry and Deep Fried Morning Glory with Chilli Sauce Dip. Sounds like we are not very healthy!
Fresh salmon sashimi done 3 ways from the few weeks old @UnaUnaSG in Bugis+! Quite a good variety of sides other than Unagi.
Just thinking about this prawn noodles we had few days back at Da Shi Jia! It’s a modern eatery in Killiney Road if you want to satisfy your prawn mee cravings. Go for the Da Shi Jia Wok-Fried Big Prawn White Bee Hoon, which comes in a dry version along with refillable prawn broth soup, something which is so rare these days!
Second dose of Monday coffee, one of our favourite spots in Marina One. Have a great Monday everyone!
The best Chendol we had in recent years? There was much commotion when this dessert was served during our recent visit to Roketto Izakaya, which is the space of Relish by the evening, a Mod-Sin casual dining bar concept every evening from Tuesdays to Saturdays. This Wild Rocket Chendol easily counts as one of the best we have had. The gula melaka is very fragrant, and the overall flavour of the chendol is very clean and fresh, along with the pandan panna cotta and homemade coconut ice cream. Order this if you only have space for one dessert.
No Bib Gourmand but Rong Ji Seafood in Ang Mo Kio is equally popular! Back for the second time and the Fish Head Bee Hoon Soup has become a staple for us. Beyond the food: The scene gets chaotic after 6pm and the whole coffeeshop is filled up, which is a huge space. The ordering process is messy and you get the quintessential Singaporean service attitude in a coffeeshop. One of our order was incorrectly taken (this was after a 50 minutes wait for our food) and as expected, there were no signs of apology. This is probably our last time here.
Quite possibly our best tea appreciation experience in Singapore in recent years, which we don’t proclaim lightly. So glad to finally make time to check out Antea Social, an extremely cosy space in Jalan Besar which rivals the ones we visited in Taipei. The space makes us feel so at home that we probably lingered longer than we intended. There’s a good selection of Taiwanese Oolong Tea, or you can also opt for other types of Green Teas. Don’t miss out on the delicious cakes too, which we can’t wait to share again! Bring a book, zone out and enjoy the peace. Sunday is complete. Tea-rific!
Our Sunday happiness! Some things it’s better not to anyhow chap, but this one is well worth chap-ping. Very satisfying Kway Chap from Chris Kway Chap in Bedok!
Since we are not in Taiwan, we have to pretend we are. Had this set so we could literally eat 3 bowls of different ingredients - Mee Sua, Chicken Rice and Braised Pork Rice (卤肉饭). Helps that the background music is Taiwanese pop song and we spotted the familiar Taiwanese accent amongst the staff!
