Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

If you’ve been to Shanghai and not had a taste of their legendary sheng jian baos, I would say – you’ve totally missed out. Go and book a ticket back there right this instance. Ok, I’m kidding (just a little). Admittedly, I’ve mainly only tried these mystical sheng jian baos from one key brand (and some other shop that is more famous for its jian … Continue reading Sheng Jian Bao | The Lovechild of Xiao Long Bao and Guo Tie

Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

It’s another cafe post! What can I say, I really like cafes. There’s just something about kicking back to chill out and have a nice cup of coffee or tea, with some sweet and savoury goodies. Better on weekends, but hey, makes for a nice and relaxing weekday lunch too. Stirling Highway takes the place of Haato at the sleepy Ridgewood Close condominium, tucked away … Continue reading Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

And Blu Kouzina, the first full Greek restaurant in Singapore, authentically … Continue reading [Moved] Blu Kouzina, Bukit Timah

Seng Kee Black Herbal Chicken Soup, Changi Road

This dish is truly stunning in its simplicity and immense … Continue reading Seng Kee Black Herbal Chicken Soup, Changi Road

After a long and detailed search online, I decided to take them to Cherry Garden at The Mandarin Oriental to try the weekend dim sum buffet brunch, for a birthday occasion. The restaurant had a classy and oriental decor, and a relaxed, clean atmosphere to it. Service … Continue reading Cherry Garden, Mandarin Oriental

搵到食 Wen Dao Shi, Geylang

I love this place. I love the food, its old school coffee shop feel, pun-y name and all. If you’re a person who enjoys food variety, this place is for you. Imagine my delight upon opening a menu chock full of delectable dim sum items, depicted by many bright (not very professionally taken but all the more charming for that) pictures of the food. Wen … Continue reading 搵到食 Wen Dao Shi, Geylang
