House of Peranakan Petit

By , April 27, 2015

House of Peranakan Cuisine opened this petit restaurant at Tiong Bahru estate as fans requested for another branch closer to the West.

Peranakan favourites can be found on its menu: Ngoh Hiang ($12), Otak Otak ($12), Itek Tim ($10), Garam Assam Fish ($18), Ayam Buah Keluak ($18), Itek Sioh ($18), and Babi Ponteh ($16).

We liked most of the dishes. Nothing overly fanciful, still delicious, even heart-warming as the meal felt like a home-cooked one. (Read: House Of Peranakan Petit Tiong Bahru)

IPPUDO SG @ Shaw Centre

By , April 11, 2015

One more Ippudo at the Orchard Road belt. The ramen exclusive to the Shaw Centre branch is the Tan Tan Tonkotsu ($16), with Japanese sesame paste blended with their signature tonkotsu broth, topped with spicy minced pork miso, pork loin chashu and coriander.

The broth is spicy but not overly, with a touch of zest from the fresh lemon. (Read: Ippudo SG Shaw Centre)

Waterfall Ristorante Italiano Shangri-La Hotel

By , April 8, 2015

The revamp of Waterfall Ristorante Italiano at Shangri-La Hotel is in line with the appointment of Chef De Cuisine Chef Marco De Vincentis who specialises in Southern Italian cuisine. Of all the dishes presented, the pasta items were also my personal favourite, especially the Tagliolini Al Pesto Siciliano ($22) – long flat ribbon pasta with ricotta cheese, pine nut, basil and roasted almond.

Other than the a la carte menu, Waterfall’s Antipasti Semi-Buffet Lunch features a rotating menu of freshly baked bread, daily fish special, cold cuts, cheeses, salads, fresh seafood, live pasta and meat carving stations, pizza-station and gelato. (Waterfall Ristorante Italiano Shangri-La Hotel)

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Lin Heung Tea House 蓮香樓

By , March 17, 2014

Dim Sum Warzone
No matter how much I tell my friends to get mentally ready for the Lin Heung ‘warzone’ experience, they never really are. If you do not speak Cantonese (or at least pu tong hua), and have no understanding of the dim sum trolley culture – good luck.

First things first, grab your seats or wait around like a vulture till you get some empty ones. You definitely have to share the table with complete strangers.

Dim sum ladies would come out pushing trolleys of food. For popular items like the cheong fun, this is a competition of fastest runner and fastest hands first. The price is cheap, though quality nothing to shock about.

It is probably one of the 10 things you must experience in Hong Kong if you are a foodie.

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Tim Ho Wan 添好運

By , March 16, 2014

Cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant in the World
Tim Ho Wan is the hole-in-the-wall dim sum restaurant that scored One Michelin Star, thereby earning its reputation as the ‘cheapest Michelin Star restaurant in the world’.

Owner-chef known as Pui-Gor (Chef Mak Kwai Pui) is formerly from 3-star Michelin restaurant Lung King Heen.

His signature Baked Bun with Barbecued Pork (HK$16 for 3) is seriously the best I ever eaten. Very similar to a bolo bao, the sweet pastry covered bun is light and fluffy, with skin so thin, and saucy char siew pork within almost oozing out. Supercrazygood! The rest of the other dim sum were inconsistent, and service the typical hurried and no-frills. (Read: Tim Ho Wan)

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Lei Garden Restaurant Group 利苑酒家

By , March 14, 2014

Consistent Quality
If there is one word to describe the Lei Garden group, it would be ‘consistency’. Almost every single one of its restaurant has a Michelin star, and the “Principal” Mr Chan and his chefs make it a point to taste its food every day.

They were the ones who created the oh-so-famous XO sauce, and Chilled Mango Sago with Grape Fruit dessert, and customers never fail to order their classic-double boiled soups.

While not all dim sum items are hits, most would be better than the average restaurant out there.

Hong Kong Dim Sum Special – Luk Yu Tea House 陸羽茶室

By , March 13, 2014

Traditional Hong Kong Tea House
For a taste of old traditional Hong Kong tea house, Luk Yu that has been opened since 1933 would be a perfect backdrop. You almost feel that you are entering a Cantonese movie set, with the elderly service staff dressed in white urging to order Chinese tea.

Dim sum are about HK$40 per basket, with the usual recommendations including steamed rice with duck meat wrapped in fresh lotus leaves, deep-fried Chinese ham-and-chicken meat pie, and jumbo-size chicken bun.

I say you can come here if you want to experience old Hong Kong, without the madness of Lin Heung a 10 minute walk away.

Kko Kko Nara’s Korean Fried Chicken

By , December 3, 2013

Unlike the previous 4 where the focus is fried chicken, Kko Kko Nara is a typical Korean restaurant with the usual Korean fare, which happens to be very known for their Korean Fried Chicken. For those who love variety, get the Combo Chicken Set ($20 during lunch, $25 during dinner) which has 9 pieces with 3 different favours – original, sweet and special garlic soy sauce chicken. (My order was lost in translation with their staff though, who looks keener to watch her Korean MTVs.) The original was good enough, sweet was sticky and like sweet and sour chicken with too much sauce, and the garlic chicken evenly marinated and tasty. Overall, the chicken meat was strangely colder than it should be. Maybe it’s the aircon.

NeNe Chicken Singapore’s Korean Fried Chicken

By , December 2, 2013

NeNe Chicken used to be my favourite, until its quality took a dip. Sometimes I like it, sometimes it is so-so and cold. It is like taking a ne-ne gamble. My recommendation is the Swicy chicken, which comes in a set of 2 pieces ($8.90) or 9 piece whole chicken ($25.90). The chicken is surprisingly not oily, even though we are provided with plastic gloves. Just lick the sauce off your fingers if you are at home. Even though we left it the chicken out for some time, the batter remains crisp, and the meat succulent. (Read: NeNe Chicken (The Star Vista))
