The first time I ate Hong Kong street food, eggettes (鸡蛋仔) was in Singapore. A friend told me an eggette stall had opened at the basement of Bugis and said it was pretty nice. Not one to resist good food,  I eagerly headed to try with another group of friends. […]

Michelin one starred cantonese restaurant (per 2015 guide). We went to the branch at Wanchai. Everything we had were satisfactory but nothing really wowed us. The only impressionable items to me were the cha siew sou (BBQ pork pastry) and the claypot rice. This must have been one of the […]

This was actually my second visit to this exhibition. First came here on a Friday evening, as Fri is the only day they have extended hours till 9pm. We reached at 8.10pm and was told that last entry was at 8pm.? What a boo boo. Their publications/posters should have highlighted […]

It’s our first visit to Sumiya. Unlike some of the restaurants at Orchard Central which are pretty hard to locate, Sumiya is located at the Roof Garden of Orchard Central. Just take a lift to 11th floor and one flight of escalators you’ll be there.     I reached around […]

I’ve long heard about the long queue at Ginza Tendon Itsuki so I got myself prepared for that before heading there.   Guess it was our lucky day. My lunch date and I reached there at about 11.55am and there were only 2 persons in the queue. The queue after […]

I’ve been fighting off the urge to buy this for weeks….I’ve taken it off the shelf a few times, each time staring at it and then replacing it on the shelf. Then dang! They had to do a Korean version. How easy, just slap on some korean words and I’m […]

My two friends had the prawn wanton mee. Portion was quite decent. One didn’t like it but the other said it was satisfactory. You know the saying about one man’s food is another man’s poison? Ha.. They topped up with S$3.50 to get a dim sum platter with a canned drink. […]

I came across The Daily Roundup recently and was excited when I saw their crepes. I love crepes! It was my last brunch date with SC before she shifted to Hong Kong. You know how claustrophobic new cafes are these days? Yes, rental is a killer on the small island […]

I arrived at the newly opened café  with my friend to find a queue of about 10 people. Surprisingly the wait was not too long or perhaps we were chatting and didn’t find the pain of waiting unbearable? We both had the 3-deli set which offers the option of 1 hot […]
