Don’t you wish the weekend had the same number of days as the weekdays? Life would be pretty great, no doubt. But, because that’s never going to happen, we’ve got to make the most out of every weekend.
Weekends are when we go wild with indulgences and treat ourselves after a long week of work. If you’re in the mood for some bountiful afternoon tea selections and/or a luxurious lunch buffet, this post will have you covered.
For the upcoming weekends of March, we’ve put together a list of 6 hotel restaurants that are spoiling us silly with insane dining promotions under HSBC’s WOW on Weekend Campaign. With names such as Colony, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant and Alley on 25, all HSBC Credit Card holders are in for a treat!
Most people define a city’s rich culture and heritage by its history, architecture and language. However, to us, the true way of getting to know a place is through food. As the saying goes, food is the way to the heart, and there is no better way to fall in love with a city than by indulging in their rich culinary scene.
We had the opportunity to attend the Stellar Dining Series by The Ritz Carlton 2019 in Guangzhou, the final pitstop of the entire event. This is its second year running and the whole series spanned across 2 months and 3 countries — Tokyo, Kyoto & Guangzhou — three of Asia-Pacific’s most renowned gourmet destinations.
This multi-sensory adventure saw exciting collaborations between Michelin star chefs, star mixologists, sommeliers and pâtissiers from 7 Ritz Carlton hotels in Europe and Asia from places such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou. Together, while holding nine Michelin Stars between them, they whipped up a series of lavish, gastronomic feasts that left us gobsmacked and hankering for more.
Aside from the luxurious spread, we also got a chance to learn more about gorgeous Guangzhou through its cuisine. Despite the trip only being 3 days long, we managed to get a substantial taste of the history of this beautiful province by tryng their unique local dishes.
The time of the year has come again for family and friends to gather for reunion dinners. Most of us will be busy going around house visiting and catching up with relatives, and it comes naturally that many Chinese restaurants will shut their doors on these days as we spend our time celebrating this holiday.
If you are worried about cooking up an impressive feast for your guests and all the hassle involved, fret not for there are actually quite a handful of Chinese restaurants in Singapore that are still open during this period!

Come this November, The Ritz-Carlton is inviting guests to indulge their culinary senses at their first-ever Stellar Dining Series. A once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between six Michelin-starred chef talents, mixologists and patissiers from The Ritz-Carlton itself across four gourmet cities around the Asia Pacific region, the Stellar Dining Series will happen from 1 November to 1 December 2018. The journey will begin in Singapore, then to Osaka, Hong Kong and finally at The Ritz-Carlton, Beijing.
Driven by a desire to create memorable experiences, each destination on the four-city tour will see these Michelin-starred chefs collaborate to present their signatures as well as create spectacular new dishes, orchestrating a constellation of cosmic dining events as well as exclusive masterclasses and cocktail craftsmanship.
For those who dine as adventurously as they travel, The Ritz-Carlton invites you to set your course by the stars and experience the Stellar Dining Series hosted by one of the greatest luxury hotels around. Whether you’re seeking to impress, or to experience gastronomic excellence at its finest, we say reserve now before it’s too late.
Despite the vast array of cuisines available in our saturated food scene, the one we always find ourselves returning to and the very same one that delivers comfort like no other, is Chinese food.
From the concept of communal dining around a table with a lazy susan right smack in the middle to expertly executed dishes that never fail to delight—whether it’s a steamed fish or even hearty double-boiled soups—Chinese dishes are what we consider the truest form of comfort food.
Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew or even the tastes of Sze Chuan, it doesn’t matter—they’re all darn delicious to us. If you are ready to dive into authentic Chinese cooking, here is our guide to 31 best Chinese restaurants in Singapore.
Established in 1992, Orchard Hotel Singapore’s signature restaurant Hua Ting has built a firm reputation as one of the top Cantonese fine dining restaurants in Singapore. Many spirits were shaken at the news of its closure some months ago but finally, after an extensive four-month facelift, Hua Ting Restaurant returns with a sophisticated new look and an improved menu to match.
At the helm of this grande dame is Masterchef Chung Lap Fai, and along with his team of veteran Chinese chefs, a brand new menu is introduced—one that aims to impart traditional flavours in a contemporary fashion. Look forward to a myriad of intriguing new dishes and creative tea-and-food pairing menus alongside the restaurant’s signatures and crowd-pleasers, all plated and presented in a sleek, artistic fashion.
New to Hua Ting Restaurant’s menu is their Smoked Peking Duck infused with Aged Pu-Erh served with Yuzu Sauce. Aromatic, succulent and everything you could ever want in a Peking duck dish (and more), it is one of those dishes that you’ll find yourself hankering over for days.
We are definitely loving Hua Ting Restaurant even more than we already did!
While the majority of Chinese restaurants are likely to give themselves a break during the Lunar New Year to indulge in all the season’s festivities, little do many realise that the restaurant scene will still be fairly active during this period of celebration.
Whether it’s a seafood feast you crave, a dim sum brunch to commence the weekend proper, or a luxurious buffet spread that features a myriad of traditional Chinese New Year delicacies and more, the options are pretty much inexhaustible.
Panicky because your family has no reunion plans during the Lunar New Year? Stay calm, help is here. Here is our list of 19 Chinese restaurants that will stay open during Chinese New Year 2018.
