Dim Sum

Tai Tong Restaurant (大东酒楼) | Penang

On our second day in Penang, we decided to go yum cha at dinner time. Went to Tai Tong Restaurant on Cintra Street, which is one of the oldest and most established dim sum restaurants in town. Besides dim sum, Tai Tong Restaurant also does tze char, which was what most customers ordered when we […]

Teochew Handmade Pau @ Toa Payoh

Whenever GM visited me previously, she would always bring along a box of at least a dozen of these cute-looking mini pau (steamed buns) from Teochew Handmade Pau. That’s the good thing about living in Toa Payoh because it’s a foodie-paradise neighbourhood with many famous foods around, both old-fashioned and hipster ones. ? The reason […]

Tak Po Dim Sum Restaurant @ Smith Street, Chinatown

Hong Kong Style Dim Sum is one of my favourite weekend breakfast or brunch food. It’s just so satisfying to indulge in a bowl of hot comforting porridge (it has to be century egg one haha) with a variety of steamed or fried snacks. Makes me hungry now I’m thinking about it, lol. G and […]

Canton-i @ City Square, Johor Bahru

Since my last visit to Dragon-i where I had a pretty satisfying dinner with the family, the husband and I had been waiting for an opportunity to come back to try its sister restaurant, Canton-i. While Dragon-i offers Shanghainese specialties like xiao long bao and la mian, Canton-i specialises in Hong Kong/Cantonese dishes like wontons, roast duck, barbecued […]

Wen Dao Shi 搵到食 @ Sims Avenue (Geylang)

If Yum Cha Restaurant is on my top list for dim sum (their prawn-based items like siew mai, beancurd rolls and prawn mango sesame fritters are just delish!), then Wen Dao Shi is really a close second if not on par. What I like about Wen Dao Shi (pronounced as ‘Wan Dou Sek’ in Cantonese […]

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum @ 151 Ang Mo Kio Ave 5

I hadn’t come back here for dim sum for a long while now though this stall which has been in operation for almost 30 years is just less than a 10-minute walk away from my house. How convenient! One of the Sundays, the husband and I decided to wake up early and head here for yum […]

Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun @ Old Airport Road Food Centre

The Old Airport Road Food Centre is one of our all-time favourite makan (‘eat’ in Malay) spots in Singapore. The husband and I used to frequent it very often (before Lao Ban Soya Beancurd outlets sprung up everywhere) just to grab a dozen of beancurd to go but not anymore since I started making my own beancurd […]

Charcoal Salted Egg Custard Pau and Chilli Crab Pau from Sin Mui Heng

One of the best salted egg paus (‘steamed buns’) I ever had was actually bought from the chilled section of the supermarket. Actually, I was surprised that I could get such high quality salted egg buns without having to visit an established dim sum restaurant so now I would just stock up with these ready packs and […]

Hao Qing Xiang 好清香 AMK 628 – Homemade Chee Cheong Fun, Steamed Yam Cake & Tapioca Cake

One good thing about having a BBC (British-born Chinese) husband (who shares the same passion in food) as my BMB (Best Makan Buddy) is that I get to revisit many of my old favourite food places and also discover new ones too as we explore a different part of Singapore every week. He makes me see my homeland from […]

A Journey to the West – Experience the new Mongkok & Legendary Hong Kong @ Jurong Point

I was invited to a media event last week at Jurong Point together with other bloggers and media friends to tour their latest addition to the mall which is a themed-destination concept “Mongkok” that replicates the bustling streets and markets of Hong Kong. From now till 31 August 2014, there’d be buskers’ performances, roving acts, on-the-spot games and […]

Tim Ho Wan 添好運 @ Plaza Singapura

This Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant from Hong Kong hit Singapore shores amid a storm of hype more than a year ago but the husband and I had only just visited it recently when we were at Plaza Singapura. There wasn’t a long queue on a late Saturday afternoon, that was why we decided to go for an […]

Shan Dong Da Bao 山東大包 @ Woodlands Xchange

I spotted this Chinese snack kiosk when I was at Woodlands MRT Station and got really excited as it sells my favourite scallion pancake 葱油饼 that I always find it hard to resist. Made of such humble ingredients yet so delish. Since I had eaten some of the best scallion pancakes and meat buns at Shandong […]

Dim Sum High Tea Buffet @ Yum Cha Restaurant, Chinatown

I share a special relationship with Yum Cha Restaurant as it’s a place where I had experienced a few first times. The first dim sum buffet I had with the husband. The first meal my husband had with my parents. The first pre-wedding meal between my in-laws and my parents. Time flies but the nostalgic […]

Weekday Hi-Tea Buffet @ Lao Beijing, Novena Square

Update June 2017: This hi-tea buffet is only available on weekends now. Scroll to the bottom for the revised opening hours. One of the perks of not having to work on a weekday is to be able to enjoy a peaceful afternoon high tea, away from the bustling weekend crowd. I had been to Lao […]

Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant @ Bugis Junction

Whenever I visit Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant @ Bugis, I will reminisce the good old busy days of working with my team in the vicinity. Despite slogging away 24/7 then, we always tried to find time to treat ourselves to a good meal whenever time permitted us to do so and this Shanghainese restaurant was […]

Peach Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Thomson

My team gave me a lunch treat to celebrate my birthday over dim sum at Peach Garden @ Thomson Plaza. I remembered having dim sum here many many years back but it didn’t leave a deep impression in me but I thought it’d be a good idea to check it out again and see if […]
