Dim Sum

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 […]

Carousel @ Royal Plaza on Scotts Part 2

As mentioned in my other blog entry on Carousel, my family and I decided to ditch the ideas of steamboat at home or lo hei dinner at some Chinese restaurant and celebrate our CNY eve here instead. I wasn’t seriously enthusiastic in dining at the same place twice in a month but a reunion meal […]
