Gyu Kaku Launches New Affordable Menu with Kuroge Wagyu Beef imported from Kagoshima!

After a first experience of Gyu Kaku in New York City, and subsequently a second taste of the grilled beef in the heart of Tokyo, I’m pleased to finally have stepped into Gyu Kaku in Singapore! The restaurant is revamping its menu, keeping old favourites while improving on its meat selection. New, and standardised throughout all Gyu Kaku outlets in Singapore, the restaurant chain will be offering Kuroge Wagyu beef imported directly from Kagoshima, Japan. The best part? The new menu is targeting guests with a new philosophy of “good food at reasonable prices”. This was one of the reasons why I initially did not try Singapore’s Gyu Kaku. However, with the King! Japanese Prime Kagoshima Wagyu going at  $41++ for 120 grams, and even the house specialty ice cream at $3.90++, this was a new Gyu Kaku that certainly perked my interest. The only gripe I had was the ventilation that stayed true to its Japanese outlet’s nature – being hot and smoky once the charcoal fire gets going.  […]

Whenever my family used to crave for Cze Char delivery, few names pop up in mind. One of them is Shi Fu Ge which used to be located at Jalan Tampang near the Sembawang Shopping Centre. However, they have since moved on to a central kitchen and the good news is that they are now focusing on an islandwide cze char delivery service. Most recently, Shi Fu Ge has launched its latest addition to the menu – the Imperial Treasure Pot.

O’nya Sayang Peranakan Restaurant – Rediscovering the taste of Nonya cuisine

Nonya food lovers looking for a quick fix for their cravings may know of this cozy establishment called O’nya Sayang at Tampines Mall, or at their most recent outlet at Paya Lebar Square. Three months into the opening, and after nearly getting lost (as Google Maps told me that Paya Lebar Square was at Tai Seng), I finally made my sojourn down to the East to experience the flavours. Straight up, O’nya Sayang features homely dishes that are both traditional and modern. As their founder Zan Ho told me, the restaurant is targeted at the younger generation who may or may not know about Peranakan cuisine. From all the dishes I tried, I must say that these dishes are generally flavourful and good. While there is only so much you can do to make Peranakan dishes healthier (i.e for the younger crowd’s demands), I thought that O’nya Sayang is worth the try.
