Sitting on the City Hall Rooftop of our beloved National Gallery is Yàn, a stunning restaurant that offers elevated and luxurious authentic Cantonese cuisine served in modern day presentations. The elegant restaurant boasts a modern setting and intimate seating. Yàn also has private rooms which are ideal for hosting private sessions and to celebrate occasions.
Having loved what Yàn had to offer before, we set our bar high on our most recent visit. We were lucky enough to try several different seasonal seafood, each cooked in its own special way. Something to appreciate about the fresh seafood at Yàn is that you get to choose your preferred cooking method(s).
Have it steamed with Chinese wine a la the traditional way or go for something a little more unique like deep-fried with white wine sauce; your pick, your way. And now, we need to share with you more about our memorable lunch when we luxuriated with premium seafood in this gem of a restaurant.

Cantonese cuisine is a fine art.
Preparation of Cantonese dishes requires a great deal of skill and expertise as the flavours of Cantonese cuisine must be well-balanced, not greasy whilst ensuring that its primary ingredients are the stars of the dish.
Situated on the 5th floor of Singapore’s iconic National Gallery and led by Master Chef Chan Kung Lai, Yàn specialises in authentic Cantonese cuisine that’s artfully prepared and presented. It is the perfect place for birthday celebrations, business luncheons and family gatherings!
From now until 31 March 2017, our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef’ upon making your reservation to enjoy 15% discount on a la carte bills. More details below.
Tucked away in the corner of the 3rd floor of PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is a family’s favourite and is renown for its outstanding Sichuan and Cantonese dishes.
This year, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road celebrates its 6th anniversary.
As part of the celebrations, Executive Cantonese Chef Leung Wing Chung has specially put together a six-course set menu which features many of the restaurant’s classics—from dim sum and Cantonese soups to Sichuan mains and signature beancurd dessert. And it is reasonably priced at S$78++ for 2 persons (regular price S$68++ per person). This promotion is valid daily, with a minimum 4 to dine.
We are such big fans of TungLok Group’s arsenal of restaurants and one of the places we frequent is TungLok Teahouse for their delectable, handcrafted dim sum. This casual dining restaurant has extremely competitive prices—which means you can always pop by to satisfy your dim sum cravings even if you are on a budget!
TungLok Teahouse at Square Two recently underwent a transformation: From a retro old-school Chinese Teahouse, to a place which revolutionizes the way dim sum is served. Hint: there is automation and interaction involved here.
After all these years, it remains as one of our all-time favourite places for reliable dim sum. READ ON
If a yuletide celebration does not mean turkeys and log cakes, then Mitzo’s Holiday Champagne Brunch should tempt you.
If you are searching for an elegant venue to spend Christmas Day in or to usher into 2017, we highly recommend our all-time favourite Chinese restaurant and it is none other than Mitzo Restaurant & Bar at Grand Park Orchard.
Most of you are already familiar with Mitzo’s spectacular Weekend Dim Sum Brunch—where you can indulge in seafood supreme dishes and unlimited portions of gourmet dim sum and an option of free-flow champagne, selected cocktails, wines and beer. It is truly the Holy Grail of Chinese fine dining!
Say hello to Mitzo’s Holiday Champagne Brunch—which is essentially an amplified version of the current Weekend Dim Sum Brunch this festive. This Champagne Brunch features over 40 types of dishes and it is one luxurious treat you deserve.
A dining experience at Orchid Live Seafood is akin to teleporting yourselves back into time. While the old-school seafood restaurant is tucked away in a remote corner of Sembawang, its inaccessibility has not deterred its loyal customers from patronising it.
Award-winning Orchid Live Seafood has received many public figures over the years and that list includes Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
Orchid Live Seafood’s superbly fresh dishes are seriously worth travelling for, and can we say just how much we love the kampong-style experience?! The restaurant is also home to a huge collection of South African craft beers.
From now until 31 December 2016, quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy 40% off craft beers with any purchase of items on the menu (valid only on weekdays). Meanwhile, here’s what you can expect from Orchird Live Seafood—also the creator of the famous Lobster Porridge.
We have never experienced dim sum the way we have at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The swanky, sleek and modern interior is a stark contrast to the traditional Chinese cuisine that is served here. To match the trendy interior, most of Mitzo’s classic dim sum dishes are elevated with stunning presentations and intricate plating, while still retaining the original flavour palette.
While we love their tantalising and luxurious dishes in their Weekend Brunch, we are stoked that we now have a new reason to pop by on weekday afternoon - Mitzo is launching the all-new value-for-money lunch sets on 12 October 2016. A 3-course meal goes for S$28++ per person, and a 4-course meal is S$38++ per person.
Dim Sum – or what we know as little parcels of happiness – is essentially steamed Chinese-style tapas that are usually served in bamboo baskets. The consumption of dim sum started from the Cantonese community and is now a favourite afternoon past-time amongst Singaporeans too.
As dim sum is usually eaten during the day, most Chinese restaurants only serve these dainty dishes until late afternoon (only a few restaurants serve dim sum until ate night). The variety of dim sum is exhaustive – baked barbecue egg tarts, steamed shrimp dumplings, salted egg yolk buns, fried radish cake… and the list goes on.
