Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant, Carlton Hotel Singapore

Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant

A steward in the local dining scene, Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant at Carlton Hotel Singapore went through a major renovation last year and now sports a new modern interior with matte-finish stone wall and brass metal accents.

Wah Lok is one of the most popular spots in town for dim sum and its refined Cantonese cuisine. It features classic items such as Baked Mini Egg Tart, Steamed Glutinous Rice and Baked Custard Bun. My personal favourite is their Baked Barbecued Pork Buns – it is as good, if not better, than the ones that I have had in Hong Kong.

The talented dim sum chef Yiu Cheuk Yin at Wah Lok has also created several new items that you should look out for. Deep-fried Crabmeat & Scallop Balls with Chilli Sauce, Deep-fried Rolls with Seafood & Sea Cucumber, and Steamed Vegetarian Beancurd Skin Rolls are some of the new dim sum that will make you return to Wah Lok again and again.

Besides dim sum, what I really want to share with you is Wah Lok’s offering of signature dishes with an emphasis on premium, fresh, live seafood like Australian King Crab, Snow Crab, Alaskan Crab, Live Abalone, and Bird’s Nest with Crab Claw in Clear Superior Soup.

Be it a formal business luncheon with associates, or a family gathering for yum cha on the weekends, Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant at Carlton Hotel is the to-go place. The dining space is modern and stylish, and the food is always prepared to a very high standard and consistently good. It is a place where you know you will always have an excellent meal.

LÈ Restaurant & Bar Singapore

AdvertorialLÈ Restaurant & Asian Tapas Bar

Regulars will know that I am a huge fan of Paradise Group. It is really inspiring to see how a small Chinese seafood restaurant at Defu Lane has evolved and expanded to a restaurant empire within such a short span of time.

LÈ Restaurant & Bar at Suntec City is Paradise Group’s latest venture – and its biggest project till date, spanning over 10,000 square feet – consisting of a trendy bar, contemporary restaurant which faces the open kitchen, and eight classy private dining rooms. LÈ offers a complete dining experience where you can indulge in pre-dinner cocktails and tapas, before having a delectable dinner at the restaurant. After the meal, relax at the lounge over post-dinner digestifs till late.

LÈ Dirty Duck

If I were to sum up LÈ Restaurant & Bar in a paragraph, it would be this: polished and well-furnished interior decorations; attentive and genuine service from the eloquent and smartly-dressed staff; unconventional and ingeniously concocted cocktails at the swanky bar and lounge; tantalising modern and refined Chinese cuisine; stylish and sensuous music and lighting – LÈ takes pride in delivering even the tiniest details for an immaculate experience. It is very sexy and it makes you feel alive.

Here are some of the highlights of some of the signature dishes at LÈ Restaurant & Bar.

Forest Restaurant Resorts World Sentosa Singapore

Forest Restaurant

Chef Sam Leong needs no introduction. He is one of the most famous local chefs in Singapore, and he has an impressive list of accolades which includes being named the Chef of the Year at the Hospitality Asia Platinum Award in 2006 and 2007, and Asian Cuisine Chef of the Year (2009) by the World Gourmet Summit. After leaving Tung Lok Group, he has joined Resorts World Sentosa to open Forest Restaurant, which serves Chinese cuisine with a Western approach (in terms of food presentation).

The restaurant’s interior design is inspired by the lush tropical rain forests, and it is definitely one of the most stunning Chinese restaurants in Singapore.

At Forest, Chef Leong acts as a consultant, and besides providing guidance for the cuisine and menu planning of the restaurant, he also conducts cooking classes with his wife, Forest. He has launched a special culinary class combined with a four-course set lunch. This means to say you can have a nice lunch at the restaurant, and then move on to the culinary class in the beautiful state-of-the-art show kitchen to learn some tips from Chef Leong.

Jiang-Nan Chun Four Seasons Singapore

JiangNan Chun

Jiang-Nan Chun at Four Seasons is known for serving classic Cantonese cuisine in a luxurious setting, and while I’d been meaning to venture there for a meal, it took me until recently to do so.

The new Chinese executive Chef Alan Chan used to be from Crystal Jade Dining IN, and since joining Jiang-Nan Chun, he has introduced a new menu. It is evident that he is adamant to make his mark on the restaurant. The food that we had were well-executed using traditional cooking techniques, with a slightly modern twist.

Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant

Roasted Suckling Pig

Si Chuan Dou Hua is one of the most well-known restaurants in Singapore for Sichuan and Cantonese Cuisine. When I heard that the chefs at Si Chuan Dou Hua have created a pretty affordable set menu with suckling pig as the highlight, I knew I had to make a trip down.

The Roast Suckling Pig Feast is priced at $258++ and $428++ for 6 persons and 10 persons respectively. Which makes it at just $50/pax for the 8 course meal after tax and service charge. I think it’s a really good deal, and you should go to Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at Parkroyal on Kitchener Road before the promotion ends on 30 April.

Sansui Ginger Chicken

To most people, soup is comfort food. And lucky for me, I am fortunate to have home-cooked soup prepared lovingly by my mom all the time. This probably explains why it has never crossed my mind to step into the hugely popular Soup Restaurant. Until today.

Soup Restaurant probably needs no further introduction; it is a household name for double-boiled soup and homely Chinese fare.

Paradise Pavilion

It’s no secret that I love dim sum. I’ve been on a quest to find the best dim sum in Singapore and I’m happy to introduce you to my new favourite dim sum restaurant – Paradise Pavilion at Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC).

If Taste Paradise is a gorgeous fine dining Chinese restaurant with oriental decorations, Paradise Pavilion would be its westernised sibling, with a stunning French-inspired neoclassical ambience.
