I’ve been to Xin Cuisine before, and true to expectations, the food was very enjoyable. The first course set the tone with the eye-catching Caviar Roasted Duck. Everyone raved about the Hashima & Crab Meat Soup, and when I say everyone, that includes the Ang Moh and the 2 kids! The baked lobster, so flavourful I really wished I had several more! We thoroughly enjoyed every dish. I guess the only complaint if I had one is that the Braised seasonal Vegetables in Superior Stock looks a little simple and plain, and the portion size not very large.
Xin Cuisine’s Chinese New Year Takeaways are available for order from 1 December 2022 till 2 February 2023 through its e-shop . Available for collection/ delivery from 21 December 2022 to 5 February 2023.
Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant ushers in a roaring opulent Year of the Tiger with perennial favorites for this takeaways and lavish set menus from 2 persons and above.
Sushiro had a cold option on their menu though, which I was curious about. It was kinda like hiyayakko from a texture perspective, but with a savory seafood taste that came through more cleanly than in the hot version. I might actually order this again.
Food at Sushiro features classic Japanese cuisine and modern Japanese Fusion cuisine, with a focus on zushi / sushi.
Sushiro has bak kut teh ramen on its list of specials now, and it was better than I thought it would be with its peppery and garlicky broth.
Food at Grissini, Food Capital, Tempo is International cuisine, and includes American, British, Italian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, with a range of rotisserie / grilled meats, fresh seafood, salads, main courses, stir-frys, desserts, cold cuts, and more.
With attractive early bird prices for the first 50 sign-ups, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel has a slew of packages to ensure a productive workday ahead in Food Capital and Tempo Bar.
If you prefer to have lighter bites, I'd recommend the pork satay and the deep fried wings.
One of the best, if not the best curry rice in Singapore, Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice is something that you have to try at least once in your lifetime. Queues start to form very early, and the popular dishes do tend to sell out fast! So, come early to get your hands on a plate of messy goodness!
Hainanese Curry Rice in Singapore, check out Loo’s if you are in Tiong Bahru which will not disapppoint.

As a traditional Cantonese family, meals on the 2nd day of the Lunar New Year signify the abundance of food for the rest of the year. Usually, we will either cook at home or eat out at a Chinese restaurant with their CNY set menus, but this was the first year we decided to try a buffet lunch since the variety will be more sumptuous than a 10-course lunch
I find that this buffet offers good value
Overall, Festive International and Seafood BBQ Buffet provide a lot of choice for this festive dinner.
I don't know if these guys are really from Joo Chiat, but that was the name of the new stall number 28 at Zion Riverside Food Centre.
I'm pretty sure that I've eaten at this stall before (70 Zion Road #01-20). But I've really only taken notice now that I've become a bigger fan of Hokkien mee in recent days.

Personally, I prefer the White Carrot Cake ($4).
That probably doesn't look like much given that it was crammed into that thermal takeaway container, but it was the haojian fried oyster from a stall at Bukit Merah View Market & Hawker Centre (15 Bukit Merah View #01-06). And it was pretty good being eggy, chewy, and savory. Sure, the chili sauce was a tad sweeter than I prefer, but that didn't matter since I could spike it with fish sauce at home.
I brought this home from Bukit Merah View Market & Hawker Centre today (115 Bukit Merah View #01-07), and I'm glad I did. The fishballs on their own were already pleasantly gritty and savory, but then I tried the meatballs, which were spiked with little bits of dried fish, giving it some extra tasty stank. The naturally sweet soup was impressive too. Next time I want to see if their dry noodles are any good.
Nice setting for French cuisine; not as formal and with elements of Balinese design. I do like the high tables and chairs although they might not be as well-liked by other diners. Oh well, it's hard to satisfy everyone!
Dishes recommended were the Southern French-style flaky pizza pissaladiere of Provence, the Alsatian tarte flambee made a la minute, and locally-sourced prawns marinated with French-Spanish influence and garlic, and more!
I got this plate of scrambled eggs with some crusty sourdough bread, and it was delicious. I devoured it all quickly, and started to wonder what their lunch and dinner was like, especially since they seemed to have a decent selection of cheese and booze. I'll have to come back soon to find out.
aficionados should definitely give Starter Lab Singapore’s handcrafted sourdough a try; also a laid back place for breakfast & good coffee.
Starter Lab – Bakery at Havelock Road
The high prices are a result of their labour-intensive process and commitment to quality ingredients, both of which are well worth shelling out for.
Not a bad plate of chai tow kway. I liked that there were some crusty caramelized bits on some of the edges.
Overall, this is a very hearty meal and a great rendition of nasi lemak!
ayam penyet - Rice was plain, not chicken rice. Meat from the chicken was a little dry.
Overall, I have eaten at Ah Orh at least 3 to 4 times over the years and I do notice that in my recent visit, the standard of the dishes is not on par with previous years.
Ah Orh Teochew Food Delivery / Takeaway
Very fat, creamy, salty and fresh oysters, on top of a fragrant and unoily egg omelette.
Besides Fried Kway Teow, if you are into blood cockles, they do have Beansprouts with Cockles as an individual dish for you to order.
Overall, Meng Kee Fried Kway Teow is one of the more underrated char kway teow stalls that’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area!
Meng Kee Fried Kway Teow is a popular char kway teow with many loyal fans who swear by it for its wok hei and robust sweet-savoury flavours.
Bakalaki really is better visited in a large group, when one can share all sorts of stuff, like all of this nicely grilled seafood, not to mention a whole fish that they grilled and filleted for us, following a bunch of meze. I still can't confidently say whether I prefer these guys or Blu Kouzina, but the brightly lit decor is a nice setting for a business lunch.
The space is light and airy and inviting. The food is even better!
Bakalaki Greek Taverna Martin Road is the new address of this popular Greek restaurant. It is much larger than its previous Tiong Bahru home, but it looks like they have no problem filling it up. Even on a weekday.
It was a lovely dinner.
Overall, the dining experience was completely different from the past. The newly revamped menu and Chef Kenny Huang onboard along with Sommelier Uzair Yaacob (certified by the Court of Master Sommelier Worldwide, European Chapter) and Mr Mayandi certainly deliver an exquisite culinary creations and fine wines to the table.
Overall, the dining experience was completely different from the past.
The star here was the cockles. The cockles were so fresh and oh so big, plump and juicy!! Shiok lah. It is hard to get such big cockles these days. Really glad that I got to try this laksa at last after so many years! Do give it a try if you are around the area!
If you are someone who prefers a stronger taste in Laksa, Guang Fa Laksa is definitely an underrated gem.
For old-school laksa peppered with cockles, Guang Fa Laksa dishes out bowls of savoury goodness from 7.30am in the morning! Read more.

This was really a neighbourhood zi char. The bee hoon had good moistness, wok hei and flavour – I slurped it all up in double quick time. Pity about what seemed like canned pork trotters though.
Some kailan stir fried with garlic for our dietary fibres. I liked that it was sufficiently salted and there were both bits of deep fried garlic and thin sliced stir fried garlic in there.
I have a feeling I would go right back to these three because they’re just that good. 10/10 would come back again!
