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 Lunar New Year 2018 set upon us in approximately three weeks time, this is perhaps the time for many to decide upon that ideal reunion setting. While traditional sets that include Yu Sheng and Pen Cai will be a highlight for many, some may opt for something a little lighter, delicate, and yet full of impressive qualities.
Step in Si Chuan Dou Hua’s Tian Fu Tea Room’s Reunion Imperial High Tea where guests, for $38++, get to indulge in a simple, yet lavish assortment of bite-sized savoury and sweet dim sum delights, complete with tea. Choose to dine at the UOB Plaza outlet on the 60th floor, and for an additional $10++, the oriental high tea comes complete with a specially crafted cocktail for the festive season! Available from 1 February to 4 March 2018, and with UOB Cardmembers enjoying one free diner with every three paying adults, this is one reunion event not to be missed!
When your heart desires for a short mid-day getaway, or a weekend afternoon spent simply chilling in the luxurious comforts of a five-star hotel lobby bar, The Westin Singapore’s Seafood and Afternoon Champagne Tea at the Lobby Lounge is one escapade to go for.
Priced at an attractive $85++ for two (and an additional 10% off for the month of October), guests can tuck in to a three-course Afternoon Tea set which includes a whole Lobster Thermidor to share over a glass of champagne. Seafood features strongly on the menu with highlights including the Lobster and Mushroom Torchoon, Trio of Sashimi, Crab Salad sandwiches, and the fiery and peppery Black pepper and Sesame Crust Tuna.
Without a doubt, the Lobster Thermidor was the highlight on the menu. Nothing but short gasps ensued around our table. Elegantly plated, the lobster and the gorgeous topping of melted torched cheese was simply a visual spectacle. In addition to the Lobster, each diner will enjoy (unfortunately) 1 oyster each served with a choice of three sauces – champagne dressing, lychee bourbon, and lime and shallot vinaigrette. With three dressings, you would have expected three oysters per person. Wouldn’t want to let that beautiful sauces go to waste, would you?
To wrap up the afternoon of decadent delights, indulge in an assortment of sweet treats. I was particularly struck by the Truffle Cupcakes. Aromatic and with truffle bits scattered throughout, this would have been a delight if the cupcake didn’t stick so much to the wrapping. I thoroughly enjoyed the other options of Pistachio Cherry Cheesecake, Tiramisu Shooters, Baked Chocolate and Walnut Brownie and the Duo of Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. Needless to say, the Blueberry Lime-Scented Mango Tart was a particular favourite for tart-loving me.
My guest and I enjoyed the Seafood and Champagne Afternoon Tea. It was a decadent afternoon, and the very comfortable ambience was perfect to catch up with old friends. $85++ for two is a worthy amount to pay considering that one would get quite a lavish spread. That said, the deal would probably be sweetened further if complimentary tea/coffee was also part of the afternoon tea set. Guests do have the option, however, of swapping out their choice of champagne for tea or coffee. In all, a delightful afternoon, with delicious tidbits to heartily keep one satiated along the way.
Thank you The Westin Singapore for the invitation.
