Whopping Good Time At Wo Peng Cantonese Cuisine 和平宴!

I was pretty excited about the media invite on 7th January 2016 to taste Chef Julian Tam’s Chinese New Year offerings. I have seen some promotions of Wo Peng on Groupon deals and they were always sold out. This was a great chance for me to get acquainted with some of Chef Tam’s signature dishes … Continue reading

Dim Sum @ Crystal Jade Kitchen (翡翠小厨) Tampines Mall

Crystal Jade Kitchen Tampines Mall

It’s been a while since I had dim sum in a proper restaurant. I say this because one can get dim sum in kopitiams and food courts but the mass produced fare tasted nothing close to those of an established restaurant’s Hong Kong-styled dim sum. Crystal Jade Kitchen is one of those establishments that is … Continue reading

Taste Paradise 味之楼 @ ION

Last Thursday was Grandpa-to-be’s birthday and as I have mentioned he is not adventurous in food – Chinese cuisine, in particular, the Teochew and Cantonese are his main favourites. Thus, it was only natural we picked a Cantonese restaurant to celebrate his special day! Paradise Group’s Concept “Poised as a diners’ paradise for Oriental cuisine, … Continue reading

I Now Pronounce You Man And Wife… You May Kiss The Bride!

Before we went to the Registry of Marriage on the 9th October 2014, Ryan gave us (Valerie’s family) a treat at one of our family’s favourites, 李白 – Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant @ Sheraton Towers Singapore.

Delicious Makan Trail In Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia! Part 2 (Kedai Makan Swee Kee 水记炖品)

Tony mentioned a no signboard fish ball noodles stall which comes highly recommended by Johor Kaki readers from Batu Pahat. He’d missed this stall during all his previous visits to Batu Pahat and was hoping that it would be opened today. As luck was on our side, the stall was opened for business that morning. … Continue reading

Delicious Makan Trail In Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia! Part 1 (Chop See Kee Wanton Mee 張亞泗雲吞面)

It’s been a while since I went jalan jalan cari makan (walk walk looking for food) with Tony of Johor Kaki Blog and of course, like all previous trips, it’s always full of yummilicious treats! Tony is king when it comes to food blogging in the State of Johor although he humbly claimed that he … Continue reading

Din Tai Fung Restaurant 鼎泰豐 @ MBS

We don’t always get good shots or good food during/after a photography outing but having good company is usually a certainty! Photographers (hobbyist and professionals) can be quirky and hot tempered but you get to form your own group with choice peeps whenever there’s a walkabout session. In this instance, I had great company although … Continue reading

杜荣记美食 (Du Rong Ji Mei Shi)

You didn’t think that I climbed all 66 steps at The Ruins of St. Paul’s and then scaled further up the Fortaleza do Monte without having a feast first, did you? 😉 Well, just before the old street walkabout, my friends brought me to 杜荣记美食 (Du Rong Ji Mei Shi) for brunch. Du Rong Ji’s … Continue reading

A Taste of Paradise – 樂天皇朝

I have been wanting to try the colourful Xiao Long Bao (XLB) ever since we returned to Singapore but not until now did I finally get a chance to savour them. Although there were many eateries and restaurants selling them, the originator of the coloured and flavoured XLB is Paradise Dynasty. 小笼包 (xiaolongbao) translating to … Continue reading

Meet The Parents @ Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Restaurant 御宝南北小馆

Before I left for Seoul to join Ryan and Valerie on their pre-wedding photography session, a “Meet The Parents” lunch date was fixed on the 28th April 2014, two days prior to our departure. Valerie had warned us that Ryan’s parents enjoy Korean home-cooked meals and may not share our tastes in food so we … Continue reading
