But of course, the popular signatures from the Circular Road outlet will also be found here at Suntec, such as the Lu Rou 2.0 ($15). Why 2.0 you ask? Because this is a further enh

Yun Nans, Jewel Changi Airport

When it comes to deciding where to eat in Jewel, you’re practically spoilt for choice. But if you are leaning towards Chinese cuisine, give Yun Nans on the 2nd floor a try if you haven’t tried the food there. Yun Nans, or its original name Yun Hai Yao (云海肴) is the largest Yunnan restaurant chain over 150 restaurants in China, but its Jewel outlet marks the first time the chain has opened its doors internationally.

Autumn & winter themed dishes @ Chengdu, Amoy Street

Winter is coming! And Chengdu is coming up with some seasonal dishes that are sure to tantalise your taste buds. This is our second trip back to Chengdu and during our first trip here, we were thoroughly impressed and this place has got to be one of the only Szechuan Chinese restaurants that I would set foot in (and come back again)! Before we get started on my thoughts on the new menu, I would like to mention that Szechuan food is typically pretty spicy. It could either be "

Forbidden Duck, Marina Bay Financial Centre

As I took my seat at a table in Forbidden Duck, the newest F&B spot in the Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC), I instantly felt like I was back in Hong Kong. The interior of Forbidden Duck screams posh modern Hong Kong and like most family-friendly Chinese restaurants, there are private rooms you can book to have a more intimate gathering.

Dragon Bowl, Marina Square

Let me tell you guys a little about my all-time favourite Chinese restaurant here in Singapore, Dragon Bowl. Being from a Cantonese background, I tend to always gravitate towards Cantonese-style cuisines and Dragon Bowl definitely serves it up amazingly.

The great thing about Dragon Bowl is that it’s an all-time friendly place that’s also perfect for those family d

This is perfect as it is located right in the central area of Singapore and so we headed down to see what was in store for us. Inheriting the legacy of the famous Rong Cheng Bak Kut Teh (that has been around for close to four decades), Bakbak has created and adopted the modern, popular trend of T
