New concepts @ Picnic, Wisma Atria

Picnic Food Park in Wisma Atria recently unveiled 3 of their brand-new exciting concepts, which we had the exclusive pleasure to try out. Whipping out an insatiable variety of both Japanese and local flavours, their new line-up includes Kumo Keiki’s coveted Japanese rice flour soufflé pancakes from Tokyo, as well as Dai 福 ku (Daifuku) by Seizan – another partnership between Picnic and Two-Michelin Kaiseki restaurant Seizan, Tokyo, which offers fully-customisable Daifuku, a first in Singapore. The latest addition also includes Brother Cheng’s Chicken Rice, which was developed after extensive research and development. The chicken rice is cooked with a combination of techniques that marry the b

New set menus @ Taste Paradise

We recently had the luxury to indulge ourselves in an array of innovative dim sum and roasting fare at Taste Paradise. Featuring a diverse combination of classic Cantonese and Contemporary Chinese cuisine, the 3 newly launched individual set menus are available at $36.80 per person, $48 per person and $68 per person (minimum two persons). You may also elevate your dining experience with wine pairings at only $38 per person. We start off the $68 menu with the Combination of Chilled Black Fungus and Jellyfish in Vinaigrette, served with Crispy Whitebait Tossed with Salt and Pepper, and Crackling Pork Belly. Accentuating a favourable flavour on the taste buds, the appetiser was best paired with

Monga Fried Chicken @ SingPost Centre, Paya Lebar

Monga Fried Chicken first introduced itself to Singapore’s palates back in September last year at JEM in Jurong East, followed by another outlet at Ion Orchard. It’s brand new outlet in SingPost Centre, Paya Lebar is not only its first on the east side of Singapore, but the only one (for now) with 25 dine-in seats. That’s not the only surprise – this is the only Monga outlet in the world with Monga Fried Chicken Bento Sets, so you can pair either two pieces of Monga Fried Chicken or six pieces of Monga Nuggets with the familiar taste of chicken rice (either for $6.90) The fried chicken pieces are a little bit larger than your average fast food fried chicken. Taste wise, it’s akin to its’ Tai

New keto offerings @ Seriously Keto, Seah Street

We have previously been to Seriously Keto when it first opened last year. And now, we’re glad to say that they have expanded their offerings and here are some of the new stuff you can check out. But before I get into that, do note that these treats are not your typical bakes you get everywhere else. These are keto-compliant food that are made to be very low in carbohydrates. Hence, they are made without any gluten products (no rice or wheat flour) and without sugar (sugar substitutes are used instead). Check out my previous post to find out more about the keto diet. And now, on to Seriously Keto’s new treats. For those new to the keto diet, carb cravings will be strong. When I first started

Lé Fusion @ The Pier, Robertson Quay

Lè Fusion is all about 樂 (‘le’, which means‘joy’ in Chinese) – a sophisticated east-meets-west dining destination situated by the Singapore river founded by a husband-wife duo, with dishes inspired by their favourite dishes from around the world. We were served an amuse-bouche whilst waiting for our orders to arrive – a dainty Focaccia Rose Mantou that is made in house using a blend of pumpkin and original flour, infused with hints of oregano herbs, then shaped into a rose, served alongside a vinaigrette dressing. Moving on to their appetisers is a hearty yet flavourful Crispy Belly Pork Mantou ($12) inspired by a classic filipino Léchon (suckling pig). Lè Fusion has fusionised this dish by

Knowhere @ Bangsar

We are back again at Knowhere, Bangsar. And the last time one of us was here, it was pretty darn good. But personally, this was my first time dining at Knowhere. I was excited to try some main dishes as I the food menu itself was rather enticing. I was introduced to the prawn garlic tomato salsa (RM28) first. The prawns came and were rather large, but I didn't find them very fresh. The tomato salsa that accompanied it was quite mild to, but there was a strong garlicky flavour, which I thought brought the dish together. I would recommend to pair this dish with a mug of cold beer. Prawn Garlic Tomato Salsa I also tried the Fumed Duck (RM30.80). It is a smoked duck breast served with sherry red
