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 […]

Guangzhou Mutton Hotpot Dip

Mutton Hotpot in Guangzhou, China

When Gastronaut said that we’d be having Mutton Hotpot for dinner […]

Lao Beijing at Orchard Central

Cze Char at Jin Wee Restaurant
