Super Star K Korean BBQ Restaurant Singapore

Super Star K

Talk about the hottest Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore, and we all think of Super Star K at Tanjong Pagar. The outlet specialises in using charcoal grill for its Korean BBQ, and the authentic dining experience explains its popularity among Singaporeans and tourists alike. Perpetually packed and crowded, dinner might have to come with a little wait, but we will tell you it is going to be worth the while.

Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant’s Aburi Sushi

Rakuichi

Our usual go-to Japanese restaurant in the Novena neighbourhood is Tomi Sushi Bar, but when we were in the area last week, we wanted to try a new place for a change.

Located at the ground floor in the same building as Oasis Hotel, Rakuichi Japanese Restaurant has been around for a few years, and while we have noticed its branch in Dempsey Hill before, we never thought of trying it now until now.

Man, we’ve been missing out. Its much-lauded aburi sushi deserves a special mention. The Tokubetsu Set (S$28.60) – includes a salad, an assortment of 6-piece aburi sushi, stir-fried fish head with teriyaki sauce, seafood & vegetable tempura, miso soup, and sesame ice cream – is extremely value-for-money. There are also cheaper lunch sets like saba shioyaki, shake teriyaki and katsu don at S$18.60.

Seasonal Tastes’ Themed Night Buffet Dinners

Seasonal Tastes Dessert

Seasonal Tastes at The Westin Singapore has recently launched its themed night buffet dinners. Themed nights always mean more excitement and something special to look forward to, and with six different themes every night from Monday to Saturday, we just granted ourselves plenty more reasons to visit Seasonal Tastes again and again.

Mondays is Mama Mia Pasta Night. Go with a completely empty stomach, for you will be in for a treat – expect nothing short of a dream-like range of handmade pasta prepared with different sauces.

On Tuesdays, we pay homage to the Executive Chef’s roots with German Classics making a guest appearance. Crispy pork knuckles, farmer’s meatloaf, braised veal shank, bratwurst, kassler and sauerkraut… You get the idea. Go on and make your reservation!

We are big fans of Seasonal Tastes’ pastry chef, for she never fails with her divine creations, and the dessert buffet is always something that we look forward to the most. Wednesdays are ladies’ nights, with a dessert shrine – featuring sweets like profiteroles, mini cakes, cupcakes, macarons, and a berry pink chocolate fountain – that is specially set up with the ladies in mind. Go on, indulge in those sweets with your girls. We won’t tell.

Celebrate Thursdays with a Thai feast and enjoy favourite dishes like Thai green papaya salad, phad Thai with prawn and chicken, tom yum goong, and Chiang Rai-style steamed jumbo prawn.

Seafood buffet

Fridays are for T.G.I.F and for everyone to get together and catch up. What better way to welcome the weekend than to spend it with treasures of the sea? Seafood Nights at Seasonal Tastes come with the freshest selection of crustaceans like lobsters, crabs, prawns, mussels and freshly shucked oysters, and we trust you know that you should not miss this for the world.

Not forgetting the guys, Saturdays are your days to get your pals to pig out on carving and roasts. The chefs have prepared a fine selection of tender roasts – such as cold roast beef, crispy pork belly with cauliflower puree, slow-roasted beef prime ribs and BBQ beef short ribs – that will satisfy the carnivore in you.

Seasonal Tastes’ themed night buffet dinners at The Westin Singapore are priced at S$62++/pax for Monday to Thursday, and S$75++/pax on Friday. Diners enjoy complimentary per entry parking from 6pm onwards (Monday to Friday) and all-day (Saturday to Sunday).

The Tastemaker Store Singapore

Tastemaker Store

The Tastemaker Store is like a mix of new and old. Sitting within the old estate of Bukit Ho Swee, it is a clean space that is well-utilised and furnished with a very understated flare. Long lamps and potted plants hanging from the ceiling spell the character of the cafe, and light retro tracks fill the lovely space with a comforting touch of the 70s.

Hai Tien Lo Pan Pacific Singapore

Hai Tien Lo Pan Pacific

With so many new restaurants opening in Singapore every week, it takes a good restaurant to survive amidst the competitive market, and an even better one to continuously stay at the forefront of the industry. Hai Tien Lo at Pan Pacific Singapore is one of them.

A stalwart in the local dining scene, Hai Tien Lo sets high standards for quality Cantonese cuisine and remains one of the best Chinese restaurants in Singapore. It is the kind of place where you go for a smart yet casual luncheon with your business associates, to have dim sum with your friends during a gathering, or to celebrate your family member’s birthday.

Hai Tien Lo

Since joining Hai Tien Lo in 2004, Chef Lai Tong Ping has taken on the duty of lifting the restaurant to greater heights together with his team of chefs. It is no mean feat to straddle the line between sticking to classic Cantonese cooking and coming up with new and innovative creations to satisfy the ever-growing demands of diners.

To celebrate Chef Lai Tong Ping’s 10th anniversary at Hai Tien Lo, he has created ‘A Glorious Decade’ – an sophisticated six-course menu (S$108/pax, minimum of two guests) which showcases his signature hand-crafted creations, the dishes that best represent the cuisine and food philosophy at Hai Tien Lo.

Noodle Stories by TungLok at Orchard Central Singapore

Noodle Stories

There are plenty of options when dining out. Even more so when you are at Orchard Road – steaks, sushi, dim sum, salads and what have you. And then there is your fine dining, buffet and all the extravagant choices. But where do you go to when you are craving an honest Chinese meal that is unpretentious, satisfying and affordable?

Our recent lunch at Noodle Stories by TungLok Group gave us an answer, and has earned a spot in our ever-popular guide to Inexpensive Restaurants in Singapore. And it is by no surprise, because this new outlet at Orchard Central is well-loved by executives and shoppers in the area who always swing by when they need an easy Chinese meal.

Noodle Stories Orchard Central

We had a feast, and we really did not know how to pick just one favourite. The use of fresh ingredients in every dish made it such a stupendous meal, and we left with very happy tummies. Today, we share with you some highlights of our lunch, and do not be surprised if you bump into us at Noodle Stories, because we will definitely return for more yum for the tum.

10 Things We Love About Outback Steakhouse at orchardgateway

Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse, the largest steakhouse chain in the world, is a household name and its flagship store at Millenia Walk has been in Singapore since 2000. Known to serve reasonably-priced steaks and mains in a casual ambience with friendly service, Outback Steakhouse never goes out of fashion, and we really love its menu; it is much more comprehensive than we thought, and even if you are not a fan of steaks, you will be spoilt for choice with its array of mains. They have a fantastic range of cocktails as well! Martinis and Ribeye; how wonderful life is.

We swung by its newest outlet at orchardgateway, and sampled many signature dishes. Here are 10 things we love about Outback Steakhouse at orchardgateway.

TungLok Teahouse: Dim Sum & Teochew Cuisine in A Cosy Teahouse

Tunglok Teahouse

The number of Chinese restaurants in Singapore is more than the number of times we crave dim sum, but the good news is we get to compile a list of our favourites – places that do not go wrong, with an incredible array of options so that we never get sick of dining there, and have price tags that do not scare us away.

A recent addition to our list of go-to places for a hearty Chinese meal is TungLok Teahouse at Far East Square that serves all day dim sum during lunch and dinner. Yes, all day dim sum.

We are looking at about S$3.80 to S$5.80 for dim sum, and what you get is very piquant food and a wide selection of quality teas in a cosy teahouse setting – complete with paintings from the 60’s and Peranakan-inspired décor.

From now till 30 September 2014, TungLok Teahouse is offering different dishes – Chilli Crab (S$19++), Flaming Drunken Prawns (S$14++), and Teochew-styled Combination Platter (S$16++) – at 50% promotion for dinner every night.

Flavours of Old Singapore at Plaza Brasserie

Old Flavours of Singapore

There are days when we feel nostalgic and really crave food that connect us to our roots. They are food that rejuvenates our souls, that remind us of cultures and traditions that we grew up with, that we will never get sick of.

Yet, revelation always brings us new things and trends, and we lose sight of some of the familiarity along the way. We are then taught to appreciate and cherish, and reminisce the good things that tug at our heartstrings. It can be as simple as Braised Pig’s Trotter with Vermicelli, or a plate of celebratory Yi Bua. And these old fashion stay gold forever.

Kacang Putih

Sometimes, we are lost for words when we sink our teeth into these nostalgic flavours. But it is quite simply the best kind of feeling when we bite into our favourite food from the past – something that we loved as a child, so pure and unadulterated.

This August, let us all rekindle the good ol’ times as Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road brings back all our classic favourites from the different dialects. Celebrate with Flavours of Old Singapore, and treat yourself to what might possibly be the most heart-warming buffet.

5 SuperMuffins from Pacific Marketplace to Love

SuperMuffins

We usually prefer cupcakes to muffins because they are a lot more moist and photogenic. Besides, who can resist a cupcake that is dressed up in a rich and decadent dressing? However, our hearts strayed after trying the new SuperMuffins from Pacific Marketplace at Pan Pacific Singapore.

The SuperMuffins are a range of five savoury muffins that come in the most extraordinary flavours; nothing you’d usually associate with muffins, and every bit surprising! Among the five, our favourites are Ms Piggy (S$7), which is a unique cross between a muffin and char siew bao made up of sweet and juicy barbecue pork and piquant salted egg yolk; and The Hulk (S$5) – a combination of mushroom, cheese, and cream in a savoury spinach crust.

Krrish (S$5), Chicken Run (S$7) and Minotaur (S$7) complete the SuperMuffin lineup. Vegetarians will love Krrish for its potato filling power-packed with Indian spices. But for meat lovers, we recommend Chicken Run – succulent chicken cooked in Shao Xing rice wine and garlic chives – or Minotaur, flavourful French style braised oxtail encased within a gruyere-infused crust.

Pacific Marketplace Supermuffins

We never thought a muffin would fill our tummies, but these sure do and in fact, this new meal-in-a-muffin is a unique and satisfying lunch concept. Should you ever find yourself craving muffins while in the Marina Bay precinct, drop by Pacific Marketplace and get your hands on these savoury goodies. As muffins go, this is as good as it gets.

From now till 14 August 2014, stand a chance to enjoy a complimentary SuperMuffin when you take part in the #SuperMuffin challenge. Take a selfie with your SuperMuffin, post it on Facebook and tag #SuperMuffin and @Pacific Marketplace. If your picture gets 20 likes by the time you leave, you will get the muffin on the house!

The SuperMuffins are available for dine-in, takeaway and online at www.pacificmarketplace.com.sg

Millenia Walk’s Best Dessert Hideouts

Tart Blanc Patisserie

One of the things that we did not know about Millenia Walk, until we went on a food tour around the mall recently, is that there are so many good dessert hideouts that will make you go weak in the knees.

Among all the unique food places that we have tried at Millenia Walk, the two joints that stood out were Patisserie G and Tart Blanc. The former is a locally-founded patisserie that offers an amazing array of French cakes, pastries and desserts; the latter is an absolute gem that specialises in tart-based desserts. We are head over heels in love with Tart Blanc’s raspberry praline tart!

Fika cheesecake

And to our Muslim friends, when you dine at Fika Swedish Cafe & Bistro, be sure to save room for their red velvet cake and cheesecake. Rainbow cake lovers have to try MEDZS’ rendition, which is soft, moist, and pretty. And how can we say no to the freshly baked waffles from Commune Cafe & Bistro No. 50?

Other desserts that are worth trying at Millenia Walk are the chocolate lava cakes from 3 Inch Sin; lemongrass & ginger ice cream from Ruby, Thai Inspired Cuisine; and the panna cotta from Bel Mondo.

By the way, do you know that Millenia Walk currently has an ongoing Nosh on the Finer Side promotion (till 3 August 2014) with different treats every day? For more details of the promotions, go to www.milleniawalk.com and like them on Instagram.
