Chuan Wei Xuan Sichuan Restaurant in Joo Chiat

I chanced upon Chuan Wei Xuan 川味轩 Sichuan Restaurant last week and have been there twice in four days. A hidden gem in my neck of the woods! Even though we have many Sichuan restaurants that are run by Chinese nationals (aka PRCs) in Singapore, not many of them do it well. I’ve tried quite a […]

Shisen Hanten at Mandarin Orchard Singapore

I love Sichuan food and used to eat it a few times a week so I was thrilled to be invited to try out Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro at Mandarin Orchard. The Chinese characters in the restaurant’s name mean Sichuan Restaurant Akasaka Szechwan Restaurant (popularly known as Shisen Hanten in Japan) was started in […]

Zhen Zhou Dao Poached Beef

Zhen Zhou Dao, Singapore-Style Porridge

Salted Egg Fish Skin @ S$15   Zhen Zhou Dao 真粥道 has been one of my favourite haunts recently because they serve great comfort food, have friendly service staff and is located pretty close to home. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you would have seen the above dish appearing on an almost weekly basis […]

Kha's Mango Sticky Rice

Farewell, Kha

Kha has been my favourite Thai restaurant in Singapore for the past year or so but come 16 January, the restaurant will shutter for good. Get your fix within the next day or two if you can secure a table. The last of the three restaurants within the Epicure Group (a subsidiary of JIA Boutique Hotels) […]

Guangzhou Mutton Hotpot Dip

Mutton Hotpot in Guangzhou, China

During my recent trip to China, I was thrilled to finally be able to try Mutton Hotpot. A dish that’s only served during wintry months in China and Hong Kong, I’d never tried it before as my dining companions were generally not keen on mutton. When Gastronaut said that we’d be having Mutton Hotpot for dinner […]

Lao Beijing at Orchard Central

Craving comfort food on a rainy evening, Rachist and I went to Lao Beijing  at Orchard Central for dinner. Eschewing the temptation of the restaurant’s a la carte buffet dinner promotion (featuring a more concise menu), we decided to order from the regular a la carte menu instead. Golden Sand Fried Fish Skin @ S$8++ Fried […]

Cze Char at Jin Wee Restaurant

S, Y and I met up for dinner at Jin Wee Restaurant in Siglap a few weeks back. Don’t be deceived by the name of this dining establishment as it is in reality an old-school Hainanese-run coffeeshop located close to the 24 hour NTUC outlet in Siglap. This place has been around for as long […]

Mother’s Day Promotion at The Boxing Crab

I was recently invited to a preview of a Mother’s Day Set Menu at The Boxing Crab, located next to Underwater World in Sentosa. View of Keppel Bay from the open air carpark at Underwater World As I was a little early, I took the opportunity to capture an image of the Singapore skyline at […]

Lao Si Chuan Restaurant at Outram Road

Chef Tang De Hai, my favourite chef for Sichuan food, left Chengdu Sichuan Restaurant at the end of March 2012 to set up Lao Si Chuan Restaurant with his family members. My fellow Sichuan food addicts and I waited patiently for him to settle in before popping by for dinner at the end of April. […]

Chengdu Sichuan Restaurant at Outram Road – Gastronomic Ruminations

Since the closure of Ba Yu Ren Jia Restaurant, my parents, friends and I have been seeking alternatives but none came close to the food we used to enjoy. At long last, Poppies from Makansutra’s Forum found Chef Tang De Hai’s new restaurant, Chengdu Sichuan Restaurant, along Outram Road.   Chong Qing Kou Shui Ji 重庆口水鸡 @ S$13.40 […]
