Pork Belly Char Siew Dreams – Thrilling Grill Fiesta at Lime Restaurant!

There’s one more week till the end of the exciting Thrill of the Grill BBQ Buffet Fiesta at Lime Restaurant at the PARKROYAL on Pickering! On top of the regular select, and quality, buffet lineup, the restaurant has decided for a limited time only (till 21 Oct 2018) to dish out an outdoor meat and seafood grill for dinner! All dishes are cooked over open pits to smoky perfection over authentic charcoal grills, with the deep orange flames lovingly licking each piece of ingredient to a slight char for just that aromatic fragrance.

My favourites include the Oyster Kicap Manis and the Pork Belly Char Siew. The oysters were plump and juicy, and when paired with the slightly slick sweet dark sauce, an enthralling dish was created that boasted of seafood sweetness, that touch of smoky caramel, and robust meaty flavours. The Pork Belly Char Siew was also a delight for just that right amount of fat layered in between skin and meat – captured with a sweet savoury intensity that was worth each bite! If keen, there are also Wagyu Beef Cubes (ok only la), Lamb Shish Kebabs, Seabass in Spicy Yellow Sauce and the Sambal Marinated Squid.

Thrill of the Grill is currently available at PARKROYAL on Pickering’s award winning Lime restaurant till Sunday 21 October. The buffet dinner goes for $88++ per person inclusive of free flow coffee and tea, $44++ per child between 4 and 12 years old. And if you dine from Mondays to Thursdays in groups of 4 adults or more, take another 10% off the bill – courtesy of the restaurant! It is certainly good for diners seeking something extra at one of their favourite buffet restaurants, but if international scrumptious seafood value-for-money is what you seek, then another buffet restaurant for the price would be a better choice.

That said, get yourself hungry with more photos from the buffet lineup 🙂

Thank you Lime Restaurant for the invitation.

Thrill of the Grill to debut at PARKROYAL on Pickering

For three weeks from Friday 5 October to Sunday 21 October 2018, Lime Restaurant at the PARKROYAL on Pickering will feature, in addition to its buffet lineup, an outdoor meat and seafood grill! The promotion, aptly named ‘Thrill of the Grill’, is probably the latest delight in town that specifically caters to grill gourmands who demand nothing but the best flavours from char-grilled meats and seafood. All dishes will be cooked to smoky perfection over authentic charcoal grills at the wooden-decked barbeque station, enabling alfresco dining enthusiasts to venture outside and watch the chefs in action!

And the menu certainly looks exciting! There will be Lamb Shish Keabs, Wagyu Beef Cubes, Pork Belly Char Siew and Chicken Tandoori. From the sea, there is the Seabass in Spicy Yellow Sauce, Sambal Marinated Squid (omg my mouth is watering), and the Oyster Kicap Manis and Clams with Kam Heong sauce.

And if the grill is not enough, Lime’s guests favourites such as Mushroom Risotto, Potato Rosi Laksa Noodles, Chilli Crab Pasta, and Kueh Pie Tee, will also be available!

Thrill of the Grill makes its debut at PARKROYAL on Pickering’s award winning Lime restaurant for three weeks from Friday 5 to Sunday 21 October, as Lime’s newly appointed Executive Chef Yap Wai Lunn continues to make his mark on the Chinatown icon. The buffet dinner goes for $88++ per person inclusive of free flow coffee and tea, $44++ per child between 4 and 12 years old. And if you dine from Mondays to Thursdays in groups of 4 adults or more, take another 10% off the bill – courtesy of the restaurant!

I’m craving for this Grill fiesta already. Watch out for the upcoming review.

A-Sha Dry Noodles are now available in Singapore!

Taiwan’s favourite dry flat noodles, A-Sha Dry Noodle, is finally in Singapore! From its humble origins as a simple noodle manufacturer opened in 1977, Asha Foods is now recognised and available globally, and the noodle brand has been winning various awards in Taiwan too!

A-Sha Dry Noodles has history. Made from a family recipe that is a 100 years old, the noodles are these days prepared in a 15-hour process that also involves air-drying the noodles before it is packed. Free of preservatives and MSG, fibre-rich, low in carbohydrates and calories, A-Sha Dry noodles in itself already sounds amazing.

Yet, what ultimately is the most important are the flavours. For its launch in Singapore, A-Sha Dry Noodle will be available in its two most popular flavours, the Hakka Chilli and the Mandarin Oriental. The former features their wide-noodle variety, while the latter, the medium sized flat noodle variety.

This time round, I took to trying the Mandarin Oriental version. The noodles are clearly superior, and when cooked, are springy, firm, and with a certain body that speaks “premium”. Mandarin Oriental carries a soy-sauce based flavour that is light, clean tasting and not overly indulgent. It can get a little salty, however, so I highly recommend adjusting the seasoning to your liking before pouring everything in. That said, the noodles seem to go very well with sliced green onion, maybe slices of char siew or chicken, and a delicious egg by the side.

For all its worth, the noodles are unfortunately priced at 5 packets for $10.90 – which is certainly not the cheapest instant noodles on the block. (You could almost get 3-4 bowls of Mee Pok and perhaps even more value since Mee Pok has toppings). Still, for A-Sha dry noodle fans, you’ll be happy to know that the noodles are now available at all NTUC outlets islandwide.

Thank you A-Sha for the noodles

PARKROYAL on Beach Road’s Crab (and Lobster) Buffet is Back!

Ginger at PARKROYAL on Beach Road has brought back its delectable crustacean buffet from now till 31 October 2018 for dinners daily, and lunch inclusive on weekends! The Wonders of Pincers buffet features signature favourites such as the Salted Egg Yolk Crab, Rock Salt Crab, Chilli Crab and the Black Pepper Crab. Also on the menu is the Pumpkin Lobster in Claypot, which was my favourite dish of the night for its rich sweetness and meaty lobster served whole.

On top of the special lineup, Ginger will also feature an expanded buffet selection featuring local delights as well as a barbecue live station, its regular oyster omelette live station, and bowls of bak kut teh to wash it all down. The Wonders of Pincers is a decent buffet for crab lovers seeking a good variety, and would definitely appeal to those who want to savour a good selection of Singaporean cuisine in a single sitting. The buffet is available at $68++ for adults, and $34++ for children.

Thank you PARKROYAL on Beach Road for the invitation.
