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.

Have A Whale Of A Sunday Brunch At Humpback, Bukit Pasoh Road!

humpback2016

I was amazed when I first stepped into Humpback. With the morning Sunday sun gently streaming into the restaurant, I was encaptivated by the casual, welcoming setting presented by the striking chandelier in the middle, the oyster bar just beyond, and the array of high chairs adorning the tables. From the entrance, the bustle that was going about the entire restaurant was engaging – representing an uplifting beat well suited for this Seattle-style restaurant.

Usher in the Year of the Goat at Xin Cuisine, Holiday Inn Atrium Singapore

xincuisine2015cny

For my first time at Xin Cuisine to celebrate the Lunar New Year, I must say that it was a wonderful experience. Apart from the very festive traditional Chinese music, the restaurant has prepared some new items just for this coming New Year. This year’s new items include Poached Whole Marble Goby with Hairy Gourd and Dried Shrimp and the Chinese New Year dim sum combinations – Steamed Prawn dumpling with Truffle in Egg White Sauce, Pan-fried Yam and Pumpkin Cake with X.O Sauce. On top of those, all-time popular dishes such as “Home Style” Roasted Duck with Tea Leaves, Premium Seafood Pen Cai and the must-have Xin’s Gold Leaf Bird’s Nest, Sliced Abalone and Passionfruit Yusheng is available.

Yu-Sheng-Goat---2

The Xin’s Gold Leaf Bird’s Nest, Sliced Abalone and Passionfruit Yusheng is a piece of fine art every year! With the Chinese New Year of the Goat at the corner, this year’s Yusheng features an auspicious goat with its body spelling out the year 2015! This is the first time I had Yusheng with some unique ingredients like Bird’s Nest, strawberries and passion fruit.

Pen-Cai-1

The Premium Seafood Chinese Pen Cai at Xin Cuisine comes with a whole range of good stuff that were brewed over a long time in the dense soup base. Each serving would be sufficient to serve a pack of 8-10 and it comes with the price of $368++. Every bite of the seafood and every sip of the soup is guaranteed a delightful moment.

Pan-fried-Yam-and-Pumpkin-Cake

Steamed-Prawn-Dumpling

Steamed prawn Dumpling with Truffle in egg White Sauce

This year’s Chinese Dim Sum combinations give the diners with an interesting visual appeal. The Pan-fried Yam and Pumpkin Cake does not taste starchy at all while the mix of the meshed pumpkin and yam sweetens up your mouth with a little bit of the spiciness from the sauce. And the gold fish looking prawn dumpling tastes amazingly nice with the slightly scented fragrance from the truffle. It’s fresh and delicious

Poached-Mable-Goby-Small

This Poached Whole Marble Goby with hairy Gourd and Dried Shrimp comes with a very homely presentation that might be a good choice for Chinese New Year family reunion dinner. The soft texture of the fish has completely absorbed the essence of savoury milky broth that was carefully cooked with the hairy gourd and dried shrimp. A must try.

Roast-Duck-with-Tea-Leaves

The “Home Style” Roasted Duck with Tea Leaves has always been the highlight of the various dishes on the Chinese New Year menu. The secret of the duck lies in the three different tea leaves used in the process: Pu’er, Jasmine and Chrysanthemum, which gives rise to the noticeable yet very light Chinese tea scent in the juicy meat. And I really enjoyed the crispy duck skin that has this nice smoky taste embroiled from within.

Muilk-Pudding-with-Bird's-Nest

The milk pudding dessert is a nice ending of the wonderful Chinese New Year dinner. The softness of the pudding and the contrasting crispiness of the Bird’s Nest just make up of a fabulous and high-class dessert.

In the end, I really enjoyed the meal and I would especially recommend the Xin Cuisine’s Yusheng and the roasted duck. For the former, it struck me with the very elaborated design and the special ingredients that stood out and made the dish so unique; the latter, it has this amazing blend of the crispy skin and juicy meat. I feel that this experience is worth trying for this coming Chinese New Year of the Goat.

Thank you Holiday Inn Atrium for the invitation.
