Haemul Pajeon Recipe (해물파전레시피) – Korean Seafood Green Onion Pancakes

Haemul Pajeon (해물파전) is a popular seafood scallion pancake in Korean cuisine. “Haemul” means seafood, “Pa” means scallion/green onions, and “jeon” means pan-fried battered food or loosely translated as pancake.

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.

Tamarind Hill Restaurant Singapore

It has been said that “The best in Singapore is the best in the world” – they were, of course, referring to fine dining experience! And Singapore does have superabundance of regionally and internationally renowned food and beverage establishments. However, from a restauranteur’s standpoint (I’m making an educated guess after talking to several managers/owners), tight-laced … Continue reading

Buona Terra @ 29 Scotts Road

I was meeting Al for lunch. We hadn’t decided where to eat until the very last minute, about an hour before heading out, he texted, “Buona Terra @ 29 Scotts Road”.
