Salted egg chicken is one of those Zichar dishes we can’t resist!
BCM the other day at Tai Wah in Hong Lim Food Complex. Lunch hour is insane, so we usually make a point to head there after 6pm while it is still opened.
We love a good foie gras dish, and the Foie Gras Poêlé from the new menu at Brasserie les Saveurs doesn't disappoint. You get a rich and well pan-seared Foie Gras served along with Poached Apple and Gingerbread Coulis.
You may be thinking, what’s that black stuff! Our surprise favourite dish at The Blue Ginger’s second outlet in Great World City, this Sotong Keluak is a must try! We are not big squid lovers, but once the squid is coated with buah keluak (a special type of black nut from Indonesia) paste, wow. This dish goes extremely well with rice too, so ditch the keto-diet.
Because it’s Lao San! Been awhile since we had it so here we are. Satisfaction is when you get your orders in within 10 minutes (faster than certain fast food chain), and we miss this taste!
Our first time having Beauty in the Pot at home! It is a good option if you are concerned about crowds during this period. We ordered the takeaway option for the Beauty Collagen Broth, and there is a minimum order of $28 worth of ingredients for takeaway in addition to the soup. Honestly, we were also pleasantly surprised by the great lengths the team went to prepare the takeaway such as giving ample soup refills in nicely packed and reusable containers, all packed in a big takeaway insulator bag which is also reusable. Otherwise, if you have bigger groups at home, there’s also the option of the Beauty in The Pot catering service with full set of crockery and hotpot provided. Catering menus start from $238 for 5 persons.
That skateboard which doubles up as a table! White coffee, black coffee? Just have both. Checking out the few weeks old Double Up Coffee near Bugis, and we love the raw and bare industrial look!
Dropped by Ji Ji for lunch and the wanton noodles are good! We are mostly hooked to the fried wanton, worth a try if you are in Hong Lim.
Craving for steamboat, been awhile. Do you tend to avoid steamboat because of the current climate? Guess steamboat takeaways will still work fine for the conservatives.
Back to Singapore and other than local food, we also miss the good Japanese food options around! Wet Friday but TGIF nonetheless!
A mini garden for this Salmon dish at Altitude restaurant, @ShangriLaSydney. Missing the harbour view!
Another dining spot we fancy in Sydney, Porteno! Think Argentinian style dishes in a buzzing dining vibe. The Woodfired Cheese (swipe right) as a start was downright amazing, infused with honey, garlic and chilli components to accentuate the dish. On to mains, we had the succulent Australian Jacks Creek Sirloin served with Mustard and Chimichurri. Awesome.
Old is gold? Maybe not when it comes to @SingaporeAir J Class seats. Our first time on the 2006 J seat on our Sydney-Singapore leg and while the seats and design show sighs of aging, we still find it a pretty decent product especially with the 34” width and 180 degrees recline into a flatbed. 1-2-1 config is great, and we already that this as a given in today’s business class context. The footrest comes an an angle to the flatbed, so a gripe we have is that we have to tilt our body slightly for full stretch.
Quite interesting to come across a Japanese inspired cafe in Sydney and we just had to have the Matcha mille-feuille!
If you are looking for a good steakhouse in Sydney, Rockpool is worth a try! The brand is quite an institution and and the Sydney outlet reminds us of the classic American steakhouse; think high ceiling, solid pillars, old-fashioned bar area for pre-dinner drinks and a dim dining ambience. The menu here features mostly Australian produce, and for our own diversity, we had both the flavourful Ribeye and Sirloin.
