Fans of 40 year-old Kia Hiang Cantonese Restaurant at International Plaza would be pleased to know that there is now one more place nearer the Central Business District where one can get that famous Claypot Chicken! Myo restobar is the group’s latest venture in bringing both familiar favourites and delectable dim sum in addition to contemporary dishes that demonstrate attempts at innovating beyond the traditional. The best part of Myo restobar, however, are its affordable prices within the city. With set lunches starting from $16++ and the a-la-carte menu being reasonably priced throughout, this could very well be one more dining option for either lunch or dinner.
With Chinese New Year nearly upon us, many restaurants will be offering special Lunar New Year menus featuring seasonal dishes usually eaten at this time of the year. One of these restaurants will be Tamarind Hill, owned by the luxury hospitality chain Samadhi Retreats. To get to it, you’ll have to drive (or take a long walk) deep inside Labrador Nature Reserve, where the forest will part to uncover a bungalow that looks like it was built in the colonial era for the residence of a British official. That’s not far off from the mark; it started as Labrador Villa, the residence of George John Mansfield, a British shipping magnate. But in 2018, it’s now a fine dining restaurant specialising in Thai and Shan cuisine.
When we mention Potong Pasir, what often comes to mind is either that of politics, or of the distinctive sloping roof blocks that the town is famous for. However, within the little foodie enclave of great food that sits at the corner of Sennett Estate, there sits a charming little eatery named Gu Ma Jia.
While I’ve passed it often, it was only recently that I had the chance to pop by to explore its food. My conclusion: I can’t believe I took this long!
When I first dined at Cassia over at Capella Singapore just slightly over a month ago, I was heartened by the depth of flavour and elegance found in each dish. Imagine my delight when I was back at Cassia to experience their Lunar New Year delicacies. Indeed, I’m most happy to say that they are well worth the visit if you are looking for a luxurious reunion dinner to celebrate the occasion!
