When it comes to classic spirits, rum may not come first in your mind, as compared to say fine scotch, nor is it a spirit associated with crazy wild parties. In that grey area between classy and crazy, rum is a spirit that sits in between.
You may associate rum with the beach and tiki bar cocktails—and you’d be right to think so. Few spirits can make a beach cocktail like rum can. Period. In fact, rum, which is made from sugar cane, is the key ingredient to many of the classic tiki cocktails.
A versatile spirit, rum is one of those things that can taste excellent in a cocktail given its complexity of flavour notes, but few would agree that having it neat or on the rocks would be ideal—until now.
Having won several prestigious awards and the hearts of many abroad, Don Q is set to make a smooth yet assertive entry—much like their rums—into the Asia Pacific region with their portfolio of premium rums that boast distinctive bouquets, tasting notes and balance. We tried it for ourselves and were utterly blown away by the sheer smoothness of it.
Our readers can use our code ‘LADYIRONCHEF’ to get 10% off Don Q’s rums on Club Parcel Santa with a minimum spending of S$100.
A spirit that comes with the promise of versatility, fragrant complexity, excellent taste and a clear subtlety that’s unmatched, Don Q is, hands down, our newest go to. And here’s why it should be yours too!
Located in Yishun Town Square, newly-opened Qi Lai Feng specialises in fish pots, both dry and soup versions, as well as hot pot. The beauty in eating fish pots is that one gets to choose their preferred fish and here, they offer anything from their signature Q fish, dory to toman fish.
Having spent a great deal of time abroad and eating their way through China, the founders decided to bring it back here, after realising that many of popular hot pot restaurants in Singapore lacked the proper technique, the flair and the wide variety that authentic grilled fish dishes is supposed to have.
By marrying the authentic flavours and lip-smacking spices of Sichuan cuisine which take on a more fragrant complexity rather than being overly fiery, it is the restaurant’s distinctive fish pot flavours coupled with their use of fresh ingredients that allow this humble restaurant to resonate with diners.
Some of their notable fish pot flavours include their dry signature Spicy Fragrant Fish Pot, Jade Pepper Fish Pot and soup versions such as their Gold Soup Lemon Fish Pot and Tomato Vitamin C Fish Pot. Ensuring a flavour-packed dining experience that promises good value for exceptional food, Qi Lai Feng in Yishun is one that warrants a visit.
From now until 31 January 2019, our readers can enjoy 50% OFF for all fish pots only at Qi Lai Feng between Mondays to Fridays and 30% OFF on weekends.

In a tropical, almost unforgivably humid country like Singapore, ice cream is essential. And fortunately for us, there are lots of ice cream options to choose from, from artisanal ice cream parlours, convenience store varieties and even those sold on carts along Orchard Road.
At its heart, ice cream is merely a composition of milk and cream but what sets a good one apart from a great one is the quality of the ingredients used and the careful manipulation of sweetness and richness. A brand that never fails to exceed expectations, presenting an intensely pleasurable experience with every lick, is Häagen-Dazs.
In the spirit of Christmas, the colossal brand has released two limited edition flavours—Cream Cheese Mochi and Tiramisu Mochi. An extraordinary marriage between traditional Asian mochi and European desserts, each and every soft, pillowy morsel presents a flavour and textural profile that far surpasses the common ice cream dessert. For an amplified experience, head on down to one of their stores to enjoy full-on crafted desserts featuring the two seasonal offerings such as the So Mochi Together Fondu and the oh-so-gorgeous Gondola Tiramisu.
A duo that aims to bring joy and sheer decadence to both the young and the old, what better way to soak up the festive Yule, than to cosy up around your loved ones, sharing and indulging in top-quality ice cream?
