Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

The Crystal Jade brand is renowned being one of the leading Singapore-based restaurant groups to preserve the rich traditions of Chinese cuisine.

As far as comfort food is concerned, one of our all-time favourite places to dine at is Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao. We grew up enjoying their classic and contemporary interpretations of the much-loved xiao long bao and la mian which finds its roots from the Jiangnan region in China!

Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao has officially opened its latest outlet at Basement 2 of Ngee Ann City which was previously occupied by Crystal Jade Korean Ginseng Chicken and BBQ. Paying homage to its opening on 01 Dec 2017, the restaurant will be bringing back their limited-edition local-inspired Hainanese Chicken Rice Xiao Long Bao.

From now until 31 Jan 2018, spend a minimum of S$45 on a la carte food items to enjoy a basket of 4 pcs Hainanese Chicken Rice Xiao Long Bao for just S$1. This promotion is limited to 1 redemption per table per bill.

The Ultimate Orchard Road Food Guide – 118 Best Places To Dine at

Orchard Road Dining

It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.

Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.

The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.

Here is the Ultimate Orchard Road Food Guide—Top Places to dine at Orchard Road, Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut:


Nakajima Suisan Grilled Fish Singapore

Nakajima Suisan

Nakajima Suisan Grilled Fish at Takashimaya’s Japanese food court is one of the places that I usually go to when I want a quick-fix in town. The prices of the set meals — choose from Salmon Teriyaki ($12.50), Gindara Teriyaki ($14.50), and Shio Saba ($7.50) — are pocket-friendly. If you are meeting your friends in Orchard Road, head here for a simple and satisfying meal.

Laduree to open in Singapore on 15 April

Laduree Singapore

It is about time. Laduree, the famous French Patisserie, is finally opening in Singapore at Takashimaya on 15 April 2013. Australia got their first Laduree store in September last year. Even Hong Kong got it earlier than us when Laduree opened a store at Harbour City last December. Now, we can finally satisfy our macarons cravings without having to fly to Paris. I am so excited about the opening of Laduree in Singapore. I am pretty sure that there will be a long queue for at least the first few weeks, and I hope that this will start a new macaron trend here.

Pique Nique by Chef Pang Kok Keong

Pique Nique

Besides Marmalade Toast at Takashimaya, another place that I like to go whenever I am in town is Pique Nique American Cafe by Chef Pang Kok Keong.

I am a huge fan of Chef Pang. I’ve tried almost all his desserts while he was at Canele Patisserie (under the Les Amis group). Boy was I excited when I heard that he left the group late last year to set up his own company, the Sugar Daddy Group.

Pique Nique is located at the basement of Takashimaya where McDonald’s used to be. It serves favourite American comfort food like mac & cheese ($12-16), hot dogs ($8.5-11), burgers ($10-13), all day breakfast ($7.5-13.5), whoopie pies ($2) and desserts ($4-8).
