The last time we had Char Koay Kak (炒粿角) in Penang, we love it. Happy to find it at White Rose Cafe in York Hotel today, where the Malaysia Street Food Fiesta is currently running from June 21 to July 7, 2019. The texture of Char Koay Kak is a cross between Singapore’s version of fried carrot cake and char kway teow, which is quite unique. Priced from $25++ per person, with other of the buffet highlights like Klang Bak Kut Teh, KL Hokkien Mee, Penang Nasi Kandar and Ipoh Yong Tau Foo!
Our Super Sik Dak Galbi from the one month old Korean restaurant in Tanjong Pagar! Our first thoughts - this is a really huge pot. It is recommended for 3 to 4 people, but I would even say it may feed 5 to 6 people. You get free flow noodles, fish cakes and rice cakes here, so imagine the carbs which are piling. Towards the end, there is even a complimentary option to finish off with rice, seaweed and beansprouts where it transforms into a huge pot of fried rice. Just make sure you have enough appetite to finish this OTT (Read: Over the top) huge pot of Korean-goodness!
Our Rojak isn’t rojak at all! No cucumbers, pineapples, but just Fried You Tiao. This tastes especially good after an intense game of Badminton. Good morning!
Had a great evening at the #50BestTalks where we saw some of the most amazing world chefs come together as part of the lead up to @TheWorlds50Best announcement next Tuesday! Tonight's theme on Kitchen Karma is provocative to say least, where the conversations touch on cooking culture and responsible leadership. In frame from left we have Chef @EricRipert of @LebernardinNY, @AnaRos40 of @HisaFranko, Tetsuya Wakuda of @WakuGhin, @MassimoBottura of @Franceschetta58, and @DanielaSotoInnes of @CosmeNYC. Amongst the sponsors include @miele_com @visit_singapore and @aspire.lifestyles !
We had a satisfying meal at The Clifford Pier recently where we checked out the special Peranakan menu put together by Chef Philip Chia! Some of the Peranakan signatures we tried include the likes of Pong Tahu Goreng, Kurobuta Pork and Crabmeat Nonya Ngoh Hiang, Ayam Buah Keluak and Udang Masak Pedas Nanas. These special dishes are available at The Clifford Pier, The Fullerton Bay Hotel from 13 to 28 June 2019. Now, we are off to an exciting event this evening, stay tune!
Hiding from the heat! Chijmes has become a hip coffee and chill-out spot after the addition of two prominent brands, the Glasshouse Coffee being one of the two. Finally got our coffee fix!
One of us has been here before, not the other. Adventure at Seletar Corner this morning and this bowl of Sheng Mian is decent to say the least. Yesterday was really gloomy so the sunlight this morning is a nice welcome to Sunday. Good morning!
Our overflowing sashimi rice bowl from Koji Sushi Bar, which opened its second outlet in a quiet corner of Raffles City few weeks ago! Although it ain't one we would go back for.
Our kind of afternoon tea, coffee and a slice of delicious freshly baked lemon cake from @FireBakeSG. Check out that crispy and slightly burnt outer crust, a nice contrast to the soft texture of the cake.
Mornings where we indulge ourselves a little with little care for the waistline. Shiok!
Been awhile since we had Army Stew! Had dinner at @Sikdang.SG, a one month old casual Korean restaurant in Tanjong Pagar which specialises in hotpot! This huge serving ($29) can definitely feed 4 people at least. Comforting meal at the end of yet another busy work week. TGIF everyone!
Our new favourite destination dining in Singapore! Concluded our meal with Spanish churros at the one month old @TXA.PintxoBar housed within the restored @TheAlkaffMansion, one of the three dining concepts in addition to @Una.Singapore and @WildseedSG cafe. TXA Pintxo Bar itself is a pretty interesting concept as it specialises in pintxo from the Basque Country in Spain. This churros dip even has hints of chilli oil!
Can’t go wrong this Spicy Clams! We had this dish along with our Taiwan porridge and it is perfect.
Dreaming of this! Named the Forestiere, the soft souffle pancakes here are stacked with creamy mushroom sauce and omelette. A noteworthy brunch or breakfast dish!
Roti Prata with Tuna and Avocado? This Roti Violet Tuna Wala-Wala is topped with crispy tuna flakes seasoned with spices, from @VioletOonSingapore. It’s a modern twist for sure!
