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.

Just for giggles, here are 8 local dishes that you would think costed a bomb if you didn’t know what they were before, based on corny expressions, overly pretentious descriptions and bombastic words.

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?
Needless to say, food is so integrated in our daily lives that it is possibly the most talked about topic in town. Over here in Singapore, nobody asks how you have been. Instead, they greet you by asking if you have already eaten. Which is why there is no surprise that most of these self-professed foodies prefer going on a food-centric holiday. We too are guilty of this trend.
From learning about a different culture, gaining new knowledge and/or skills to meeting likeminded travellers, here are 8 Reasons Why A Food-Centric Holiday Is More Fun.
Few things in life are as mind-blowing as Wagyu beef. Better yet, thick juicy slices of perfectly seared, smoky and tender Wagyu on a bed of sauced up Japanese rice, a healthy amount of pickles and an onsen egg for good measure—yes, we’re talking about Wagyu donburi.
Beef bowls are a mainstay at many Japanese restaurants, but what goes into a bowl and how every component is treated varies across the board. We particularly enjoyed the version at Waa Cow! due to its simplicity and its emphasis on flame-torching their Wagyu prior to plating.
If you’re ever planning on indulging on something as rich and luxurious as a Wagyu bowl, we urge you not to waste your calories (and money), head on down to Waa Cow! for one heck of a memorable meal.
Promising a seasonal spread of festive meats and treats along with a bevvy of authentic local and Asian delights thrown into the mix, Spice Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road ranks high as one of our top venues of choice to indulge in a full-on feast this festive holiday.

But seasonal dishes aside, be sure to tuck into their various Asian and international items as well, not forgetting their selection of crab dishes—a mainstay and what Spice Brasserie is classically known for.
