A whole Peking Duck for $18? We checked out the one week old Jia He Chinese Restaurant in Farrer Park and just for the month of December, this Peking Duck is priced at $18 instead of the usual $48. May not be the best in town, but extremely good value even on non-promotional days.
Our current mood. Thinking of this signature hot chocolate during our afternoon tea at One Ninety Bar earlier. Wouldn’t mind being a snowman for once!
Hit by the chill wind outside after leaving office! Something soupy now will be nice, and this is the Fish Collagen Broth on the menu of Roketto Izakaya, the evening spin-off concept in the same Relish space. This comforting bowl of goodness is served with homemade omu fish cake. The broth is rich and creamy, and it is a surprise that this is a dairy-free soup, so you can expect the natural flavour of the fish bones in achieving the creaminess.
Cold start to the week and we are craving for noodles! This corner stall at Bendemeer Food Centre is quite popular and is worth a try if you are craving for Bak Chor Mee. Where: Amigo, 01-12, Bendemeer Market and Food Centre
Is this Christmas season or National Day? Pandas were in MBS earlier and decided to get our hands on this seasonal Magic Christmas Tea Infused Macarons. People who know us well would know that we are not the sweet-tooth type, but these macarons are surprisingly good. And yes, we overkill with the buy, getting 24 of these home.
Lobster Braised with Bee Hoon, one of the signatures at Famous Kitchen! Made our way to Sembawang Road yesterday and in contrary to Famous Treasures, this branch focuses more on seafood dishes with a more old school vibe.
Seems like our default coffee option in Upper Thomson Road now! Kept mispronouncing it as Tuas Coffee, gosh!
Woke up thinking it is 7am when it is already 9am and the weather looks very gloomy. Craving for something soupy, and don’t miss this old name Kway Chap stall if you are in Serangoon Garden. Can’t wait for our early lunch later, and happy Sunday everybody!
Our Black Pot! The Black Pot here is akin to claypot chicken, with the highlight being the flambé moment when Moutai wine is added to the pot! The dark sauce is flavourful with subtle hint of the Chinese wine, and this pot goes well with white rice. Ditch your Keto diet for a moment.
Charcoal Custard Bun from @SocialPlaceSG! A dish which purportedly originated from Social Place, the custard here is not too sweet, and it doesn’t flow excessively so you won’t make a big mess while eating.
Prawn Noodles with Har Cheong Spare Ribs? This namesake King Prawn Noodle Soup with Prawn Paste Spare Ribs at Chef Kang’s latest venture in Toa Payoh is promising, but didn’t impress us. The broth lacks the umami we were expecting, and it is ironic that it is the crispy prawn paste space ribs which stole the thunder from the prawn noodles. We would probably not pay $10 for it again!
Can’t go wrong with this Steak Frites at Les Bouchons, where you get a Grilled Black Angus Rib Eye Steak along with very crispy fries. TGIF!
Wouldn’t mind a good beef for lunch and it’s more than just the roast pork at Izy Fook! This Wagyu 2GR Oyster Blade is also worth ordering as a sharing platter. Go for a variety of meats here!
Not the biggest fans of oysters but these ones from @VUESingapore are too fresh to resist!
One of our favourite dish at this popular casual Thai restaurant, which has been expanding quite rapidly the past few years. This vermicelli with prawns has a good char flavour to it and it can’t go very wrong for us. Rest of dishes here are a mix of hit and mixes. While it has now opened in malls, we still like one of their first outlet in Hougang where the tables are lined outside, heavily contrasted with the loud Thai music playing from the inside.
