One of the perks of living in multi-cultural Singapore is none other than being able to indulge in a myriad of distinct cuisines.
What’s more, with the growing abundance of Halal-Chinese eateries gracing our food scene, our Muslim pals can now expand their palates and enjoy the best of both worlds while reveling in authentic Chinese cuisine. One such Halal-certified, Chinese establishment is Xiaoer Niuda, a traditional beef la mian restaurant nestled in the heart of JEM.
La Mian — known as “hand-pulled” noodles — originates from Lanzhou, China. Xiaoer Niuda has brought that fusion culture over to our local shores, specialising in handmade, halal la mian topped with morsels of savoury beef.
Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodles is an all-time favourite of ours all these years and if you haven’t tried it, you’re indeed missing out in life.
Hawker food is of ultimate comfort to us, and what makes it even better is seeing young people run the stalls. It is a dying trade, sadly, for being a hawker means very long working hours and physically-taxing duties.
Perhaps, that’s what made Xiao Di Fried Prawn Noodles a stand-out; the couple running the stall is only 30 years young! And they’ve totally nailed the well-loved fried prawn noodles. We’ll go out on a limb and say that this is the best Hokkien Mee in Singapore.

Xiao Ya Tou, or better known as XYT, is a modern Asian restaurant bar on Duxton Hill that serves up a plethora of playful and somewhat cheeky food and drink offerings—all of which find their inspirations stemming from cuisines from all across Southeast Asia.
The eatery is hard to miss. Its distinctive red lanterns, plastic chairs, and loud decor just call out to you as you walk past. Xiao Ya Tou is one establishment that will undoubtedly guarantee you and your mates a solid meal, yummy locally-inspired cocktail but more importantly, a great time out.
Xperience sits within the luxurious Sofitel So Singapore which is strategically located in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore.
The modern European restaurant is helmed by one of Singapore’s youngest and most charming executive chef, Trevor Paulo, who has a flair for recreating western classics with interesting local twists that has surely captured our hearts.
Chef Trevor Paulo’s unique culinary creations have successfully pushed the boundaries of traditional French cuisine, where his dishes have impressed even reputable 3-Michelin Starred Chefs such as Chef Christophe Muller and Chef Hideaki Matsuo. Despite all the glorious achievements, Chef Trevor remains down-to-earth and enjoys interacting with all his guests.
The next time you are in the CBD or need some surprises in your life, head down to Sofitel So Singapore’s Xperience Restaurant to experience Chef Trevor’s new menu. You will be in for a great time, we promise.
Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is arguably the biggest name in the local Hong Kong ‘Cha Chaan Teng’-style restaurant scene. When you think of Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe, you think affordable prices, comfort food and a relaxing casual ambience.
In conjunction with their 10th anniversary celebration, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe has launched a specially curated #AWESOMELY10 menu. Since their first outlet opened in Heartland Mall (which is also their flagship outlet), 19 other outlets have popped up in every corner of Singapore; there is definitely an outlet near you.
What we love best about Xin Wang is that most outlets are open till 2am to cater to the late-night dining crowd. With an entire menu priced S$15 and below, we learned lately that all the dishes are cooked a la minute to ensure freshness and tastiness.
Here are some highlights from the #AWESOMELY10 menu and some other signature dishes that are ever popular.
