Seafood Buffet- Spice Brasserie- PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road

I love going to a buffet feast, whether it is with my family or friends. The idea of feasting together while enjoying each others company is heartwarming and memorable.

As a seafood fanatic, a buffet that caters an array selection of seafood has a special place in my heart, it is the only buffet station that I revisit often.

With “oh crab, it’s back” seafood buffet. Be sure to enjoy the freshest catches that include Singapore’s ever-popular flavored crab dishes, scallops, slipper lobsters, seabass, prawns and so much more.

The buffet lunch selection caters unlimited servings of restaurant signatures which consist of stir-fried slipper lobsters with black bean sauce and my personal favourite the classic Chilli Crab with Mantou, the plump and soft crab meat coupled with the impeccable fragrant and savory sauce. It is a dish not to be missed.

Enjoy the delicious broth with must-have items such as Homemade Fish Tofu (S$2.20/piece), made with yellowtail fish, soya bean and egg white all blended to perfection.

The Chicken’s Rollin’ is one of Bugis Café signature dishes that you should try it out when you are here. Inspired by the local Hainanese Chicken Rice, this dish is made into a rice roll and then deep fried to give you a crispy outer layer. It certainly pairs really well with a drink!

Trio Golden Cups - Bugis Café - Outdoor Beers and Delights @ Studio M Hotel Singapore

Trio Golden Cups (Kueh Pie Tee) – Bugis Café – Outdoor Beers and Delights @ Studio M Hotel Singapore

The Trio Golden Cups (Kueh Pie Tee) are actually a little different from the traditional Kueh Pie Tee you usually get. Here at Bugis Café, they replaced it with Chicken and Satay Sauce. Surprisingly, the combination complements quite well with the tartlet.

 Bugis Café - Outdoor Beers and Delights @ Studio M Hotel Singapore

“Belly-Nice’ Pork – Bugis Café – Outdoor Beers and Delights @ Studio M Hotel Singapore

If you feeling extremely hungry and want something filling, Bugis Café also offers a wide array of main course dishes other than bites for you to savor. I got to try out their “Belly-Nice” Pork which was braised pork belly with rice and it was alright. The pork belly was juicy and the tau pok was busting with flavourful when you bite into it. I like my rice to be ‘wet’, so the next time I order it, I’ll request for some extra gravy to go along with.

Chick On Stick - Bugis Café - Outdoor Beers and Delights @ Studio M Hotel Singapore

Another fancy way of saying Satay, Chick On Stick is no doubt, our local grilled chicken skewer. Paired with the Peanut Satay Sauce, it can never go wrong!

Japanese cuisine lovers should definitely check out Gyoza-Ya where it combines the concepts of Gyoza (Japanese dumplings) and Jya jya Men (Black Bean Noodles) together when dining. The Gyoza was handmade by their in-house master chef and taste amazingly delicious! I highly recommend you to try out their Pan-Fried Gyoza with Mentaiko Miso. It was so sinful!

They also serve sushi starting at SGD$0.80 per piece, my personal favorite got to be their Salmon Sushi, Foie Gras Sushi, and Eel Sushi.

Northpoint City – Pizzamaru

This got me really excited! Pizza maru is one of the most symbolic pizza brands in Korea, with more than 620 stores across Korea. It is the first in Singapore here at Northpoint City and you surely will feel Korean-ish when dining here with pizzas and fried chickens.

Their premium pizzas are made with patented Green Tea Wellbeing Dough that has fermented for over 48 hours with chlorella, barley, and 12 other healthy grains. This not only serves as healthier options for us but also satisfies our cravings.

My personal favorite got to be their Mango Ocean Premium Pizza where you bite into generous chunks of mangoes accompanied with shrimps, scallops on the freshly baked healthy bread base. It was such a perfect match in heaven.

My personal favorite has to be their Army Stew! It was so good, the broth was flavorful and I really like the fact that they used different types of rice cakes and some of them even had sweet potato filling inside. I can see that the owner of PatBingSoo carefully curated the menu and appreciate their effort to bring Korean food closer to us.

I’m sure those who stay in Punggol will be familiar with Big Fish Small Fish. It was first opened as a container-style cafe in Punggol and I’m happy to say that they opened their second outlet here in Northpoint City! While the cafe tries to retain its concept by bringing in the elements of a shipping container into the mall, patrons can now seat comfortably as the place is fully air-conditioned. 

What’s good here? You should totally go for their Salmon! The fish and chips restaurant offers up to 6 types of fishes for diners to choose from. But, I’m in love with their Salmon as the meat was soft and tender, covered with a crispy fried batter on the outside! Also, did I mention that there would be free-flow of sauces for dipping!? Choose from unlimited free-flow of Cheese, Curry Mayo, and XO Mayo sauce.

Enjoy the authentic flavor of Mexican with a generous combination of ingredients that have been hand-picked fresh by the in-house staff when you order your very own burrito.

But if you ain’t feeling for a burrito, do not fret as you could go for their rice bowl option with all the same ingredients, without the tortilla. Perfect for anyone looking for a lighter option!

But, I got to say, when I’m here at Guzman Y Gomez I would always go for their 3-Piece Hard Shell Tacos! I do like my tortilla to be crunchy. It’s like having corn chips and tacos at the same time!

A double-award winning brand at the Singapore Prestige Brand Award 2017 for Promising Brands and Most Popular Promising Brands, it’s no wonder the hearts of many Singaporeans when it comes to dining out. I’m always intrigued by their delicious well-seasoned grills and wide-selection of seafood to choose from. 

If you ask me, I really liked their Charcoal Grilled Pork Belly! The meat was well-flavored and it was super juicy! It was very aromatic as if it was just been grilled on a traditional charcoal grill and it certainly was! What’s more, if you are feeling hungry late at night, they are opened until 12am (last order 11pm), so there’s always a reason for Collin’s!

The Twenty Cavan @ Cavan Rd (Lavender MRT)

the.twenty.cavan

the.twenty.cavan

Located at Cavan Road, the.twenty.cavan is a new restaurant & bar that features Asian Fusion dishes that are certainly special and unique. The interior is based on a rustic theme and you will certainly feel like a hipster when dining in there. Yet, you will still get that exquisite feel.

Spicy Mango

Spicy Mango

Though the restaurant focuses on serving a wide variety of beers and wines, I wasn’t feeling good so I opted for their non-alcoholic drinks instead. Spicy Mango was recommended by one of their bartenders and I certainly pleased with that. Served with fresh mint leaves and mangoes, it was very refreshing and revitalizing. However, the mango cubes will a little on the tart side. Still, it wasn’t a problem with me as I enjoyed it.

Garden Green Salad

Garden Green Salad

We started it off with some appetizers. The Garden Green Salad consist of pan-fried prawns, cashew nuts, fresh berries and green chili dressing. I was definitely amazed by the unusual taste it gave me when I had my first bite.  I like the fact that they paired the hearty leaves with dragonfruit and goji berries as they marry well together.

Mushroom Skewers, Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Curry Chicken Floss, Quad Seafood

Mushroom Skewers, Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Curry Chicken Floss, Quad Seafood

You get a choice of three starters or four at a selected price. The platter I had have four different appetizers, Mushroom Skewers which comprises peppercorn-flavoured Portobello and Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss and Quad Seafood which comprises a top shell, scallop, prawn, baby octopus tossed with mint hot bean sauce served with jellyfish.

Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss was one of my favorites among it. Though it may sound very freakish it was actually really good!

Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs

Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs

As I mentioned above just now that they feature Asian Fusion items, my first main course was Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs. If you know the Hakka chicken dish made with red glutinous rice wine lees, this is Chef Andrew’s pork ribs version. To be honest, I’m never a big fan of pork ribs and this taste more like the western version of char siew to me.

I’m a big lover of the Hakka chicken dish and char siew rice itself, but the Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs is just weird for me. That being said, I feel that there is some other mains worth coming for!

Canton Roast Chicken

Canton Roast Chicken

Good classic Roasted Chicken with black rice. You can’t find black rice in many places so I’m really surprised and contented that they chose that as the staple for this dish. Also commonly known as the Emperor’s Rice, it is extremely high in antioxidants, vitamins and very nutrition! Sure it’s going to be a hearty meal.

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl is another very hearty main that serves with lots of assorted greens and black rice. This rice bowl was one of my favorite, simple clean eating, yet still so good! 

Cavan Breakfast

Cavan Breakfast

Thick brioche with bacon, pork bratwurst, sauteed button mushrooms and scrambled eggs. The eggs were well made, it’s still gooey and soft. Overall, a very typical big breakfast.

Crispy Fish & Chips

Crispy Fish & Chips

I really liked their version of Fish and Chips as they have used Tilapia fish. The best part was that they had left the skin on, making it more flavorful. Their fish batter isn’t the same as the typical fish and chips batter, I’m not sure what type of flour and ingredients they have used for their fish batter but it was quite good and well-seasoned!

Pumpkin Yam Puree

Pumpkin Yam Puree

Pumpkin Yam Puree with Coconut Cream. This is a traditional dessert with a modern twist of the Teochew Orh Nee. It actually has aloe vera and pandan juice mixed into the pumpkin and yam puree to make it more special. Orh Nee lovers should definitely give it a try!

Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries

Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries

I always like to have a refreshing dessert to clean my palate after a delightful feast. Paired with pureed mixed berries, the pudding was lightful tart! It almost felt like I was having some really good creamy yogurt! This Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries is the way to go.

To sum up, I think they really put in the effort to make something special and extraordinary. If you are around the area, why not pop by to check this place out? They have a great rustic ambiance that will make you feel like you are in a cozy back alley.

Portico Prime @ Dempsey Hills – Chic & Modern European Restaurant

Portico Prime

Portico Prime

Situated in Dempsey Hills, Portico Prime offers a Chic & Modern European Restaurant. The interior is simple and industry-styled, yet refined and elegant. It will sure be a lavished experience here.

Roma Tomato Salad

Roma Tomato Salad

To get things started, I got to try out a few appetizers.

Roma Tomato Salad has two different types of Jamon (also known as Ham in Spanish), it was certainly unusual and I’m not used to the taste. The salad was scattered with Quinoa and Hijiki Seaweed and a finishing of Rock Melon Dressing. Still, I love how the tomatoes go well with the Quinoa and the dressing together.

Hokkaido Scallop

Hokkaido Scallop

Pan-seared Hokkaido Scallop with Brown Anchovy Mayo and Crispy Bacon, the scallop was still juicy on the inside and it was well browned. You know it is going to be good!

Pan-seared Foie Gras

Pan-seared Foie Gras

Pan-seared Foie Gras, this got to be one of my favorites! Accompanied with Beetroot Puree, Toasted Bread and a fresh mixture of berries, it was indeed dead delicious! The Foie Gras was silky and has a melt in your mouth feel. It was paired really well with the crisp toasted bread and refreshing fruits.

Live Scotland Blue-lipped Mussels

Live Scotland Blue-lipped Mussels

Live Scotland Blue-lipped Mussels. Seasoned with Garlic Confit, White Wine, and Italian Parsley, it was so simple yet so comforting. It has a wonderful aroma, I can really smell the freshness of the ocean as if I was really there. Really good!

Truffle Angel Hair Pasta

Truffle Angel Hair Pasta

Next, some of the main courses of which, I really enjoyed.

Truffle Angel Hair Pasta. Intense and pungent aroma of the truffles, matched with beautiful black Avruga-caviar, crispy Kawa Ebit Shrimps and Ito Togarashi, it will sure to make you render speechless. If I would visit again, I will sure order this as my main course again!

Roasted Chicken Leg

Roasted Chicken Leg

Roasted Chicken Leg with Chili Navy Beans Sauce. The sauce was a little on the salty side if you try it as it. Yet, it marries up perfectly when consumed with the roasted chicken. The chicken was tender and succulent. If you are not sure what you are looking for this classic dish with a slight twist should be alright to try out.

Baked Cod Fish

Baked Cod Fish

Baked Cod Fish with Yuzu-flavored foam and crushed Matcha Hazelnuts. This dish was totally bizarre! Not only that the flavors combination was unusual, the dish was presented in a very exotic way. I was astonished to get to try out some flavored foam. However, all the flavors were very mild and you have to slowly savor it to appreciate. I personally feel that even though the dish was outstanding and out of the box, I don’t like the bubbly feel of the foam in my mouth.

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee was creamy and well caramelized. I was amused that they added toasted bread on top of the Creme Brulee, certainly something different and some would sure to enjoy it with the creamy sweet custard.

Homemade Sorbet

Homemade Sorbet

Homemade Sorbet garnished with fresh fruits and granola toppings, it was very refreshing and light. Great to have it after a hearty meal. The flavors I got to try out were Green Apple, Lychee, and Passion Fruit. I really enjoyed all of them as they were not too sweet but sweet enough for me. My liking was the Green Apple, but I told by my other friends that it tasted like baby food (Apple Sauce).

Deconstructed Black Forest

Deconstructed Black Forest

Rich and decadent, Deconstructed Black Forest surely brings me back to the woods in the wonderland! The Chocolate Mousse pairs really well with the creamy cold Gelato.

 To sum up, the food was delightful. I can see that the chefs here put in the effort to recreate their dishes for a more special meal for their customers. Since the restaurant is situated in Dempsey Hills, it is quite peaceful and quiet. Additionally, with the beautiful chic interior and wonderful ambiance at night, I would totally come here again in future for a special occasion!

Oh My Tian @ Boon Keng – A Singapore Version of Wonderland

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

Got to try out Oh My Tian‘s new menu last month. I felt that some of their new dishes will certainly make you feeling OMG.

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

 When I stepped into this Carnival-themed cafe, it really felt Oh My Tian Ah. In other words, I meant that the place was majestic and wonderland-liked.

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

Strong colors you thought that would mismatch with one another actually complements well. Not your usual cafes.

Milkshakes from Heaven

Milkshakes from Heaven

Their new Milkshakes from Heaven feels exotic with their Blue and Brown. The Blue also known as Sea Salt Gula felt a little lacking of flavors. Definitely can be better.

However, the Brown, which is also known as Chocolate Caramel was a bomb! It has deep caramel flavor that makes you wanna keep drinking! Not too sweet, yet rich and satisfying. 

The Effiel Tower

The Effiel Tower

Quite special, huh? It was actually classic Earl Grey Tea with Caramel Konjac Jelly topped it off with Vanilla Ice Cream. 

Greeny Protein

Greeny Protein

I think you should take a look at their other dishes when dining here. Their salad wasn’t exactly special and it shouldn’t be the reason for you to come here. In other words, come Oh My Tian cafe to try their specialty dishes instead.

Dory Voyage

Dory Voyage

This was damn good! Glorious Beer-battered Charcoal Dory Fish with rich creamy Salted Egg Yolk Sauce. Not only the fact that it looks so unconventional and striking, it’s well-seasoned and full of flavors. I highly recommend you guys to order this!

Oeuf Crossiant

Oeuf Croissant

Oeuf Croissant, infused with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce. Instead of a sweet Salted Egg Yolk Sauce you get from other cafes, Oh My Tian serves it quite savory. What you get from the Dory Voyage, is what you will be going to get from this croissant. I actually prefer Oh My Tian’s Salted Egg Yolk Croissant to other cafes because it can be eaten as a main course. Delightful!

Bonjour Dejeuner

Bonjour Dejeuner

Bonjour Dejeuner consist of Croissant, Turkey Bacon, Chicken Sausage, Leafy Greens, and Scrambled Eggs. Simple, and right up straight forward. You can never go wrong.

 

Hot Summer

Hot Summer

At a first glance, you will think that this is Ice Cream Sandwich Cookie. Yet, after a bite of this dessert, you will realize that it is not your typical dessert. The ‘cookie’ base is actually Chinese Fried Bun. I got to try out with Mango Ice Cream and Salted Strawberry Ice Cream.

I love both of their Ice Creams, especially the Salted Strawberry Ice Cream. So unusual, yet so unbelievably pairing. However, I don’t fancy the Chinese Fried Bun because it was a little oily for me.

Oh My Tian

Oh My Tian

Located near Boon Keng MRT, I feel that if you are adventurous for a different cafe experience, you should totally check this place out! I would definitely bring my favorites here to surprise them with a unique experience soon!
