Braised Mee Po with Fresh Mushroom and XO Sauce! A hearty carb to share and what’s interesting is the thin texture of the mee po, which made it rather light and an ideal selection if you are want to avoid being too filled.
What’s your favourite High Tea snack? . Love this Pandan Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake from the Atrium at @PanPacificSingapore. This dessert is part of the newly launched Nostalgic Weekend High Tea Buffet which features Peranakan dishes and live stations!
Starting the weekend with this simple kaya toast! Huge love it the coffee cup, again. Good morning!
Spicy green noodles? . Raining cats and dogs and this plate of spicy Signature Lala Jade Noodle will be perfect! The green colouring comes from spinach and along with basil, the flavour is slightly spicy but very satisfying. The Lala (clams) is drenched with spicy sauce, delicious!
1 for 1 lunch deal in CBD? . This Seared Hokkaido Scallop is one of the mains at @MontiSingapore which is celebrating its 1 year anniversary this month! Priced at S$48++ for 3 courses, it’s 1-for-1 till end of April so it’s at S$24++ per person.
Feeling the need for a much needed post work treat and we still love this plate of Fried Chicken with Nori Mayonnaise from the few weeks old Taiwanese inspired @TheSaltedPlum at Circular Road, previously known as Five Ten. . All dishes here are priced in denominations of 5 with most dishes at S$5 or S$10! More highlights of the Taiwanese dishes on our stories!
Checked out the brand new all-day casual dining concept, The Stamford Brasserie, located at @SwissotelTheStamford level 1. This Pulled Kurobuta Pork sandwich where the kurobuta is marinated with red wine and beer is delicious!
This XL size Unagi from the one week old @UnagiyaIchinoji is probably an easy feat for if you truly love your unagi! Otherwise, it’s good to share amongst 2-3 pax.
Wet or dry? We are craving for a wet plate of this curry rice now! . Happy to be sharing more about this curry rice on air on @883JiaFM at around 12.15pm this afternoon, do tune in if you have a minute! . #883jiafm #午餐最正点
What’s not to love about salmon roe and that mystery pool of black seed? . Our starter at Kilo Kallang from its new menu is this Salmon Roe Puri housed in crunchy chickpeas along with pickled ginger cream and Oolong tea jelly within. It’s an explosion of flavours when we took it all in one mouth. . That pool of black seeds are in fact sesame seeds and as aptly quipped by their new culinary director Chef Tim Ross-Watson, why not make it edible if you can? We love this guy.
Thinking of this trio of dishes from Man Fu Yuan which will be launching its brand new menu this Friday 20 April. From left to right are snippets of what to expect - Mango Passionfruit Prawns, Smoked Kagoshima Pork Belly Char Siew and Deep-fried Pork Shoulder Dumpling. Huge love to the tender and fatty pork belly for us!
S$11.80 Buta Don in CBD? Only Monday but we are already feeling like a Buta literally! . We are always on the hunt for new places to dine in CBD since we work in this district, and finally made our way to the 2 months old Tokachi Tontaro in Tanjong Pagar, a Buta Don concept which is popular in Hokkaido. There are various flavours like the Premium Buta Don, Miso Buta and Spicy Buta, and our vote go to the Premium Buta Don which uses the more tender and flavourful Kagoshima Shirobuta. Can’t wait for the weekends already!
Can’t see much of anything but we are thinking about this delicious Steamed Kampong Chicken covered with Ginger Spring Onion from @YanCantoneseCuisine! This rustic addition to the menu is one of the new dishes here, and we almost think the ginger spring onion outshines the tender chicken. Just almost. Have it with white rice and life is complete.
Feeling the need to be at Songkran so here we are instead since we are stuck in Singapore. . Checking out the Songkran Festival specials at The Line (@ShangriLaSG) which features collaboration with guest chefs from acclaimed Bangkok-based restaurant BAAN. Some of the highlights include the Five-Spiced Spicy Eggs Soup, Lamp Massaman Curry, Spicy Shrimps Salad, Stir-Fried Tom Yum Fried Rice, Tapioca with Black Beans in Coconut Cream, and the assortment of Thai Kuehs at the dessert line. . This special Songkran Festival spread will be available at The Line from 11 to 30 April 2018.
Starting the day with this bowl of legit BCM, been craving for it since yesterday! Go straight for the 小碗麵 where you will get copious amount of minced meat, fish cake, pork liver, egg and a big bowl of soup. Have a great Sunday all!
