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!

In February, Hong Kong Art Collective, Parent Parents, flew to Singapore and painted several walls in Hotel Jen Tanglin. Diners had the chance to watch the artists paint graffiti live in J65 while enjoying a sumptuous buffet spread. My dining partner and I also took the opportunity to snap a photo with the pretty wall.

Lai Huat Signatures @ Far East Square

Lai Huat Signatures is a casual dining tze char restaurant in the heart of the central business district. 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!

Hokkaido Izakaya - Lovely Japanese Dishes!

New to the scene and here to stay, Hokkaido Izakaya is a solid outfit that stands tall and proud along Tanjong Pagar Road. With almost all of their ingredients and produce imported from just four different towns in Hokkaido, diners can definitely find a taste of Hokkaido right here. The Milk Hotpot with Salmon ($18) is not to be missed. Made using fresh milk from Hokkaido, the broth is amazingly rich with a slightly viscous texture and every mouthful packs an explosion of flavours. I've never really been huge on soupy stuff or hotpots to be frank, but this changes everything. I was legit sad when they took it away even though I had already finished all the soup. It's sad to see good things go you know?

Sumiya @ Suntec City

Following the success of their first outlet at Orchard Central, Sumiya strikes again with a huge space at Suntec City, with their sake dispenser being the ultimate highlight. Their tasty Ryoshi Mushi which features fisherman-styled steamed seafood in a miso soup base is the perfect dish to savour on a cold rainy day. I bet you'll be craving for this everytime the weather gets a little chilly once you've tried it!
