(CLOSED)Big Lazy Chop @ Short Street (Selegie)

 photo Big Lazy Chop Short Street 6.jpg
Six months old Big Lazy Chop might not be situated at the most easily located or eye-catching spot but it is actually pretty near town. It's just a short walk away from the famous Rochor Beancurd at Selegie. There's ample parking in the compound and the 90-seater has both an alfresco and air-conditioned area. At the helm of the kitchen is Chef Oh, who has more than 37 years of experience whipping up palate-pleasing fare. He has come up with around 30 sauces that diners can pair with meat or seafood options. The Salted Egg Yolk XL Spare Ribs ($20) is one of the most popular items here and I urge you to give these gigantic ribs a go!

Mellben Signature - Delightful Tze Char at Tanjong Pagar Plaza

 photo mellben signatures 9.jpg
Mellben is irrefutably one of the hottest names in town when it comes to crabs or tze char. I've been to Mellben once in 2012, and I fell so deeply in love with the soup of their claypot crab bee hoon that I insisted on taking away the rest of the soup, so that I could have it for supper. I haven't been back since because the north just seems too far for me. Hence, you can imagine my happiness when I learnt that they now have an outlet at Tanjong Pagar!

It proves to be a great place for after-work gatherings and regulars can now get a taste of their favourite Sambal Fish at a more centralised location, instead of having to go all the way to East Coast!

Fu Lin Men Dou Lao @ North Canal Road

 photo thumb_P1111292_1024.jpg
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.

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.

九猫久 Jiu Mao Jiu @ POMO

 photo intro_6.jpg
Where you least expect it, there’s a restaurant tucked in the corner of POMO which serves a mean ma la xiang guo and ma la hot pot.

Jiu Mao Jiu specialises in Sichuan cuisine which is known for its bold and spicy flavours derived from the usage of garlic and chilis. The restaurant has an extensive list of a la carte Sichuan and Chinese dishes but what I’ve been meaning to try is its ma la hot pot buffet which is a favourite among crowds who frequent the area.

I’m always looking for supper places especially if their offerings deviate from the usual oily, greasy prata or bak chor mee. Thankfully, ChaoZhou Porridge has introduced its new supper buffet which makes a great addition to any foodie’s list of supper places.

Nostalgic Dim Sum buffet @ Si Chuan Dou Hua (PARKROYAL on Kitchener)

 photo PA049641.jpg
Chef Wen Xin Wen is bringing back a taste of the olden days by recreating dimsums that were popular in the past. I wasn't expecting 50 dishes on the buffet menu and I definitely wasn't expecting the buffet to only cost $32- $38 per adult. Needless to say, I was immensely impressed by the selection and quality of the food. If you love yourself a good dimsum spread that is beyond value-for-money, I think you shouldn't miss this one

Joie by DOZO, Shi Li Fang & YiLi PaoPao Ice @ Orchard Central

 photo ravioli.jpg
Not many are aware of the plentiful food options available at Orchard Central. I was one of those unknowing until I embarked on a food trail recently within the shopping mall. Initially, I thought there were only a couple of F&B establishments on the verandah. However, I was surprised to discover a huge array of cuisines being offered from its basement to the rooftop.

I visited a few establishments that I thought were unique, interesting and definitely worth a try: Joie by DOZO, Shi Li Fang 食立方 and YiLi PaoPao Ice.

Legendary Hong Kong @ Jurong Point

 photo P7307290.jpg
Legendary Hong Kong has been around for more than a year and its a shame that I've only just found out about it, especially when I stay near Lakeside. This huge casual joint is reminiscent of those popular cha chaan tengs in Hong Kong and that was what struck me first as I walked into the place. It might not be the easiest place to locate as all the signboards are bright and flashy and there are a ton of them but that area is dressed to look like the streets of Hong Kong and I think that does add points to the ambience of LHK. The brainchild of a Hong Kong-er, the food here is as authentic as it gets, and possibly the closest you can get to Hong Kong

Chuan Wang Ji @ Santa Grand Hotel (East Coast)

 photo P6115261.jpg
Chuan Wang Ji is just a couple of weeks old but they have already garnered a loyal following who come by specially for their spicy Sze Chuan dishes. The first thought that comes to mind when one mentions Sze Chuan food is probably the crazy levels of spiciness present in every dish. Little do we know that there are actually dishes that do not employ the use of hot spices. Most of the spices used in the preparation of the food are imported from China, heightening the authenticity of the cuisine served here

Mrs Lee's Favourites @ TAO Seafood Asia

Media Invite

 photo P4294265.jpg
Why Mrs Lee's Favourites, you might think. All the dishes in this Mother's Day menu are refined versions of homecooked dishes that Chef Lee Tong Kuon cooks on a regular basis for his lovely wife. Aptly named, with a very sweet story behind it, the Mother's Day menu at TAO did not disappoint and left us belly full and very happy

Mother's Day is just a week away! Have you already booked a table somewhere to celebrate this occasion with your family? Well, if you haven't, what better way to thank the heroines in your life, if not a dimsum feast at the elegantly dressed Royal Pavilion at Park Regis Hotel?
