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.

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

Updated on 27 Apr 2014: LÈ Restaurant is no longer in operations.

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.

Chin Huat Live Seafood Restaurant

Chilli Crab

You know a marketing campaign is successful when people still remember the slogan after a long time. When you mention Chin Huat Live Seafood, chances are, people will think of the slogan “lobster bigger than little girl” used in their television advertisement years ago.

Chin Huat Live Seafood at Sunset Way, is of course, more than just lobsters. Besides the typical Sri Lanka crabs, they offer a huge variety of seafood and popular zichar dishes.

Irvin’s Seafood Cze Char River Valley

Chilli Crab

“Where can you find the cheapest crabs in Singapore?”

Irvin’s Seafood Cze Char at River Valley road is probably the place to go. Most of the crabs on the menu – like black pepper crab, chilli crab, butter crab – are available for just $19.9. There’s a catch of course. The crabs are much smaller, around 500g each.

Personally, I thought that it was a good tactic to attract customers. But taste-wise, the crabs that we had were nothing special. Irvin’s Seafood is only worth a try if you a) are on a budget b) want to try a variety of crabs.

Ban Tong Seafood Tze Char Restaurant Clementi

Ban Tong Seafood

Clementi has lots of good food. Besides the newly opened Clementi Mall, there is also the popular Clementi Food Centre and various coffee shops.

I recently had Tze Char at Ban Tong Seafood restaurant at Clementi ave 5, which is a few minutes walk from the train station. The food is generally good, and prices are what you’d expect from a typical tze char place.

Sin Hoi Sai Seafood Restaurant Tiong Bahru

Sin Hoi Sai Seafood Restaurant

Sin Hoi Sai (also known as Sin Hoi San) Eating House has been around for ages and they hold a special place in my heart. When I was a kid, my uncle used to bring me there for dinner every month.

As the years went by, we stopped going there for zi char, but I am really happy to see that Sin Hoi Sai has been doing well. Ask any foodie where you can find a popular Zi Char Restaurant for supper and invariably, the name Sin Hoi Sai at Tiong Bahru will prop up.
