Big Lazy Chop (大懒排): A Master of Sauces!

Big Lazy Chop is perhaps the place to be at for dishes that get really saucy. From crowd favourites such as the Salted Egg Yolk, to the surprising lip-smacking delight of Butter Champagne that wonderfully coats the pieces of large ribs, Big Lazy Chop certainly has won my attention hands down. The bistro-restaurant is helmed by Singaporean Head Chef Oh Ah Lek, who comes with 37 years of experience in Asian cuisine, including time as the Head Chef of Fortuna Hotel in Vietnam. It is clear that for all the dishes I tasted that night, this is one place that I will want to make a return visit, especially with the eclectic mix of awesome Chinese cooking, craft beers and curious art pieces that adorn the walls.

The Touch of Gourmet Ingredients: Jamie’s Italian Vivocity

By | July 23rd, 2016|Categories: Italian, Jamie's Italian|Tags: |

It was a pleasure visiting Jamie’s Italian at Vivocity just over a month ago. While the famed chef’s restaurant has been in the scene for a few years now, it is still one of the places that I will think of if craving for some comforting, Italian fare. In an attempt to introduce some of its specialty produce to diners, the restaurant also recently did a two-day gourmet food pop up. And as much as it was a little bazaar to purchase exotic ingredients, it was also partly educational in showcasing part of the work that goes into each dish. Lunch thereafter was one well-appreciated, with just that little awe to how each ingredient could be tastefully used for best possible flavour, and effect. […]

New and healthy Cantonese masterpieces are on the menu at Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.
