Celebrating Chinese New Year at a restaurant has never sounded this enticing. Apart from awesome credit card promotions, diners are entitled to a complimentary yusheng for lunch reservations and the entire Fivefold Fortune Set on the house for dinner reservations! If that's not a total bang for the buck, I'm not quite sure what is.

Jen's Kitchen On-The-Go @ Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore

A 24-hour chic and cozy space that serves up great coffee, cold pressed juices and milkshakes? Say no more, I'm sold.

The pretty milkshakes aren't too over the top and they actually taste great! The Melted Peanut Butter Milkshake ($11) had my heart at hello and their Sea Salt Caramel Latte scored high points with me!

J65 @ Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore

 photo HJTS_1_Taste_J65.jpg
After a huge facelift, J65 is ready to host eager patrons and hotel guests. Why J65? You might wonder. J65 draws its name from Singapore's international dialing code and Hotel Jen Tanglin is actively integrating local touches into their premises, be it engaging local talents to perform at J65, commissioning local artists to create art pieces, or supporting local entrepreneurs. J65 is a befitting name for the convergence of all things local.

(CLOSED)Shinkei Japanese Restaurant @ Lorong 4 Toa Payoh

 photo sashimi_2.jpg
In the heart of Toa Payoh lies Shinkei Japanese Restaurant, an establishment that offers affordable Japanese lunch and dinner sets as well as a à la carte buffet!

The main highlight and my absolute favourite was the Sashimi Moriawase. The luscious platter is served on a bed of ice. Each thick slab felt and tasted so fresh. There were different types available: tuna, yellow tail, salmon, swordfish, snapper, octopus and squid. The yellow tail in particular was divine. It was wonderfully sweet, chilled and fresh. I would just keep ordering sashimi till my heart and stomach’s content.

Fu Lin Men Dou Lao @ North Canal Road

Fu Lin Men Dou Lao has been opened since April 2015 but they haven't done much publicity till now because the star behind the dishes and cuisine here has only managed to come to Singapore recently.  Master Chef Nian who is the two-time winner of the grand Manchu and Han Royal Imperial Court Feast (known as “Man Han Quan Xi”) culinary quest by China Central Television is the brilliant mind behind much of the conceptualisation of the menu.

The good people behind my favourite coffee haunt, Assembly Coffee, has opened up Atlas in a more accessible spot in Bukit Timah. With an expanded menu and a bigger space, I wasn't the least bit surprised to find Atlas packed to the brim as I walked in on their second day of operation.

Oh My Tian @ Whampoa West

 photo ohmytian4.jpg
Oh My Tian is the work of the people who brought you the highly popular Hatter Street at Hougang. So if you're thinking that this plate of waffles looks incredibly familiar, it is because you probably have seen or tasted it before. We ordered a Whoaffles with Vanilla Icecream and Salted Caramel Sauce ($9.50) to share and it did not disappoint with that crisp exterior and dense insides. It is definitely one of the better waffles that I've had in Singapore. My only gripe was that a part of the waffles was slightly bitter and it might have been a tad burnt.

Legendary Cart Noodles 傳奇車仔面 @ Jurong Point 2

 photo Intro.jpg

The origins of cart noodles date back to the 1950s in Hong Kong when it was a common sight to see street hawkers peddling bowls of noodles from their carts in the less affluent areas. At present day, the street hawker trade has dwindled but these iconic cart noodles still continue to thrive as a Hong Kong favourite.
