db Bistro Moderne – Introducing Boulud Sud’s Mediterranean Flavours!

Mention Daniel Boulud, and the most striking dish to come up to mind would be the popular DB Burger. Famed for his French-American cuisine, Boulud is probably the least you would expect when it comes to bringing the flavours of the Mediterranean into his creations. But then again, the creativity of a chef knows no boundaries. Daniel Boulud and most of the other Celebrity Chefs of Marina Bay Sands will be in Singapore during this period leading up to the F1 Grand Prix, and it might be possible to catch them in action in both the restaurants and maybe even while watching the cars fly by. The theme of Mediterranean dishes will be making a limited appearance each month, and it comes as an additional feature to the spread already available in the a la carte menu. It is a special selection and introduction of the Mediterranean cuisine spread available in his latest restaurant Boulud Sud in New York. […]

Old Hong Kong Legend, It’s just good dim sum!

Its always good to find another place to have excellent dim sum, especially since there will be tummies rumbling during Mid-day. The idea of Dim Sum formally originated in Southern China and dian xin was paired commonly with tea as a snack (hence its name to only touch the heart in Mandarin).     Old Hong Kong Legend, having opened early this Year, has already been awarded as one of the Top Five Best Dim-Sum Restaurants in Singapore by Lifestyle Asia. And having been to the restaurant a few times with my family before that, certain key dishes do stand out as goodies which I believe are not to be missed. Yet while the traditional favourites still stand, Old Hong Legend does an interesting take on existing dishes be it in terms of presentation and the choice of ingredient pairing itself. […]
