Christmas is the season of giving and here at Royale, and it is sans the hefty price tag so that many more of us can enjoy without having our wallets take a beating. That’s not to say they’re skimping on anything.
When you think of Christmas, you think of indulgence, you think of a celebration, and with Royale’s Santa’s Christmas Circus Festive Buffet, there is no better way to jingle some bells and make some merry. Watch the flavourful magic of Christmas come to life in an enticing festive feast featuring over 40 scrumptious Yuletide dishes. We’re talking about Truffle Cheese Fondue, a Live Outdoor BBQ station and show-stopping meat-focused centerpieces, all lined up like presents under the Christmas tree for you.
You’ll be glad to know that the circus will be in town from the 10 Dec 2018 until 01 Jan 2019 so you can ring in the new year with festivities too. For prices as low as S$48++ per pax, there’s no reason to let this festive opportunity pass you by.
For the extra star on top of the tree, our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef’ for 25% off Royale’s festive dinner buffet at only S$36++ per pax for lunch buffet and S$51 per pax for dinner buffet (valid every day except for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve). If you’ve already been to Royale, you’ll understand how the opulent baroque style furnishing of the place fits the Christmas theme to a T.
Japan astounds in more ways than just its food and its people and wherever you choose to embark on your next adventure, we’re almost certain that you will not be disappointed. Our wanderlust brought us to Niigata, a coastal prefecture located north of bustling Tokyo. A lovely place untouched by time, and one that proves excellent for road trips.
Boasting the highest concentration of rice plantations and accounting for a majority of the country’s rice exports, there really is no wondering why Niigata is well-known for their excellent quality rice, rice wine (sake) and other rice-based products. Located close to the Japan Sea, fresh fish and seafood are often in abundance and of exceptional quality too.
Yet, as far as gastronomy goes, Niigata’s vast array of food choices come second only to the prefecture’s rich culture and a plethora of scenic views. Like lines in a sketch, the terraced rice paddies littered all over present a view like no place else. Each season brings with it a different ambience and having visited in Autumn, we were treated to stunning spectacles of technicoloured leaves and marvellous views wherever we were brought.
Brimming with breathtaking scenery, awesome food and inherently kind yet down-to-earth locals, you best believe us when we tell you that Niigata is a destination to consider if you crave adventure and new experiences. We’ve broken it all down for you, listing down how you can go about renting a car, where you should visit and what you should eat—you’re welcome.
Renowned for serving some of the best Chinese food around, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant constantly impresses with their stellar array of dishes that—while remarkable in both taste and presentation—, never wanders too far away from its cultural roots. Specialising in both Cantonese and Sichuan cooking, the restaurant employs chefs native to each respective city, ensuring that their food is kept authentic.
The ideology behind Cantonese cooking is fairly simple—ingredients have to be at their peak of freshness and the flavours of dishes should be well-balanced and not greasy. In addition, flavour components such as spices and aromatics are typically used in moderation such that it supports rather than overwhelms.
Inspired by the flavours and cooking methods of Hong Kong, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road is proud to unveil 19 different claypot delights as part of ‘Secrets Of A Claypot’, a menu that masterfully demonstrates the age-old method of Cantonese claypot cooking. Overseen by Executive Chef Leung Wing Chung, every dish is elegantly presented and executed with finesse and expert technique, but at the heart of it, it still remains a humble claypot of food that boasts deep and pronounced flavour.
Available from now until 31 December 2018, available at S$28++, indulge in the smoky, flavourful likes of their esteemed Claypot Rice with Assorted Waxed Meat, aromatic Braised Beef Tendon with Curry Sauce, delicately prepared Double-boiled Fish Soup with Matsutake and so much more!
Our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef’ to enjoy every second clay pot at just S$8.80!
We have dined at Ginger at PARKROYAL on Beach Road many times but they always manage to get us excited for our next trip back. When looking for an affordable buffet place that suits the dynamics of a multi-generational family or a diverse group of friends, Ginger at PARKROYAL on Beach Road will, without doubt, be on top of our list.
Drawing inspiration from Singapore’s culturally-rich enclaves with many dishes being heavily influenced by Asian flavours and helmed by their new Executive Chef Vincent Aw, expect a wide range of new, exciting dishes that are perfect for your Christmas feasting.
From 1st December 2018 to 1st January 2019, a sumptuous Christmas feast certainly awaits you here at Ginger, so put your diets on hold and get ready for the season of feasting! What’s more, our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef‘ upon making reservation to enjoy this lavish buffet spread at 25% discount from 1st December 2018 to 1st January 2019 (exclude blackout dates), and 15% discount on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
The CBD area, despite being crowded and hectic during lunchtime, is well known for having a plethora of great eats ranging from the cheap to the exorbitant to feed the hungry office crowd.
Let’s face it, you’re strapped for time, money and the workday isn’t shaping up to be as great as you had hoped. You need a pick-me-up and one that’s quick tastes incredible and won’t take a toll on your wallet. That’s where Chunky Crabs comes in.
Newly-opened Chunky Crabs is the brainchild of the same folks who brought you Chunky Lobsters. The concept here is pretty much the same, with the only key difference being that Chunky Crabs serves, well, crabs. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to find their lobster rolls at both their outlets at The Cathay and Oxley Tower.
You would expect a crab roll made with such high-quality meat to be exorbitantly overpriced. However, you’d be surprised to know that Chunky Crabs sells pretty wallet-friendly crab rolls that are great for those of you who are craving for anything crab related but are on a budget.

Whenever we talk about Vietnamese food, the first thing that comes to mind is a cuisine that boasts complex heady aromas of fresh herbs and robust flavours that pack a punch yet remain light on the palate.
An amalgamation of fresh and exotic flavours hailing from various regions of Vietnam, newly-established Paper Rice aims to give diners nothing short of the real taste of Vietnam. This new concept by Arteastiq Group—you may know them for their stellar range of brewed teas and art jam spaces—sees a collaboration of colossal proportions, tying in the skillsets of Arteastiq’s award-winning Executive Chef Yip and Vietnamese-born Chef Minh.
Officially opening its doors at Changi City Point on 30 November 2018, Paper Rice takes diners through Vietnam’s rich gastronomic history encompassing the cuisine’s signature clean, exotic and robust flavours. Think nostalgic classics such as the hearty pho, smoky street-style grill and Vietnamese drip coffee, as well as other traditional and uncommon Vietnamese delights.
As part of their launch, you get to enjoy Saigon Export beers at just S$2 and 50% off Kirin beers with any purchase of food from 30 November to 31 December 2018. The best part?
