Xperience A Memorable Valentine’s Day Dinner at Sofitel So Singapore!

It is near the end of my first dinner at Xperience, and I fear I am in trouble. Throwing the etiquette book out the window, I have already had two servings of the main course and a double helping of the dessert. It is my first time meeting the charismatic chef, Trevor Paulo, and I don’t want to leave him with a poor impression. Instead, he seems not to mind in the least. Beaming, he announces to everyone within earshot: “I like this guy already!” […]

Welcome CNY 2016 with Ellenborough Market Cafe’s Prosperity Lunar New Year Buffet

By |February 4th, 2016|Categories: Buffet, Chinese, Ellenborough Market Cafe|Tags: |

It has been a long time coming since I last tried the food at Swissotel’s Ellenborough Market Cafe. Yet, with my visit this time round, I was surprised to hear that the restaurant will be closed come 15th February for a four month long revamp. Still, the restaurant is set to go off with a bang into the Lunar New Year. The culinary team has executed a range of CNY culinary delights for all guests to enjoy and tuck in to, and they are looking forward to impress. From a custom-made Lo Hei freshly prepared at a live counter, to the delectable portion of Stir-fried Australian Scallops with Snow Peas, Lily Bulbs in XO Sauce, and even the freshly prepared Durian Pengat, this is one Lunar New Year reunion that will spark off memories.

Crystal Jade Heralds The Lunar New Year With Uplifting, Delights!

By |February 1st, 2016|Categories: Chinese, Crystal Jade, Crystal Jade Golden Palace, Orchard|Tags: |

One thing that always gets people excited during Chinese New Year (CNY) apart from the festivities, family gatherings, and of course, ang baos, has to be the seasonal food that makes an appearance. Every year, the Crystal Jade group creates a fresh set of CNY dishes with colours, tastes and aromas that reflect an uplifting mood of celebration, joy and abundance, and this year was no exception. Like any proper CNY affair, the dinner at Crystal Jade was marked by an abundance of festive food, presenting a spectrum of tastes across their impressive stable of restaurants. […]

CNY Reunions at Red House Seafood since 1976!

By |January 31st, 2016|Categories: Chinese, Red House Seafood, Somerset|Tags: , , |

The name Red House Seafood is no stranger to the seafood dining scene in Singapore. With its roots beginning at Upper East Coast Road, the restaurant has since expanded to a central outlet located along Prinsep Street. For this season’s Lunar New Year, Red House Seafood is taking a step further in making that reunion a touch easier with their Reunion Takeaway Tiffin Sets. Those intending to dine in will have new and traditional favourites to choose from – though the real steal for me was the final dessert of the night: The Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Lime Sherbet.

But in the spirit of the new year, it seemed right to be a bit generous this season. So allow me to introduce you to KUVO—the oasis that you’ve always been looking for, and one of Singapore’s best-kept secrets.  […]
