Tsuta Unveils Its Biggest Menu Revamp Yet

Author: Alexius Chua

If you are fans of Tsuta, you should pay attention.
The world’s first Michelin-starred ramen unveiled its biggest menu revamp with 80% new items. It premieres Tsuta’s first Crab Soba, R.H.C.P Mazesoba plus new sides to boot.
The star of the menu – Crab Soba with Premium Char Siu and Crab Shell ($23.80) is pleasing to the eye and satisfy our stomachs. The Japanese snow crab has been lightly seasoned and torched flame, imparting the chunks of snowy white meat a fresh, flavourful oceanic taste. There’s also tender Iberico pork belly and Kurobuta pork loin, all layered on top of the umami-filled broth for the picking. It’s pure land and sea delight.

Tsuta

The R.H.C.P Mazesoba ($11.80) is one of Chef Yuki’s new dishes and a tribute to his favourite band – Red Hot Chili Peppers. It takes on Japanese favourite, hamburg but made with mazesoba where al-dente thick chewy noodles, drenched in house-made tomato sauce, are served with minced beef and house-made cheese sauce. While it tastes more like a tomato-based spaghetti than a burger to us, its still quite an interesting dish with robust flavours.

Tsuta

For long-time fans of their soba don’t fret yet, Tsuta has reintroduced the old classics – the Shoyu and Shio Soba. The Shoyu Soba with Char Siu ($16) is further enhanced with addition of a piquant balsamic black truffle sauce, giving it a full-bodied yet delicate taste. While existing menu are overhauled, Chef Yuki Onishi’s commitment that every bowl of ramen is served with 0 MSG and no artificial flavourings remain unchanged.

Tsuta

Chef Yuki also made a personal rendition on all-time favourite classic Chinese dishes with the likes of Soboro Meshi ($6) or mala lu rou fan, and Teriyaki Chicken Bao (1 piece at $2.80 or 3 pieces at $6.80). These kong bak pau slider is so easy to bite into, the juicy teriyaki chicken thigh meat is so tender and flavourful, sandwiched in a soft and fluffy bun. It can just be a meal by itself.

Authentic Peranakan Cuisine by Chef Philip Chia @ The Real Peranakan

Author: Alexius Chua

The Real Peranakan, which opened two outlets on July and August 2020 at Hillcrest and Kim Yam, is likely to attract families longing for this nostalgic taste of Straits Chinese cuisine. Especially those who grew up eating Peranakan dishes and longing for some authentic taste, they will be tastefully persuaded by the culinary of Celebrity Chef Philip Chia – a true blue Peranakan and an indisputable authority on Peranakan Cuisine – who has brought traditional favourites and long-lost recipes back to the table.

The Real Peranakan

The soul-nourishing Hee Peow Soup ($16.80), which consists of fish maw, collagen-rich broth filled with handmade prawn ball, pork ball and fish ball using Chef Philip’s grandma’s age-old recipe. It needs 6 hours of preparation and simmering, so remember to pre-order 3 days in advance to snag this homely, belly-warming soup.

The Real Peranakan

Next dish is the Ayam Buah Keluak ($19.80). For those who don’t take Buah Keluak nut, this might not be appealing to you, but for me the bitter sweetness and creamy earthiness tastes truly unique and special, like eating dark chocolate. It’s an ingredient you shouldn’t cook by yourself because its said to contain hydrogen cyanide that is deadly if not treated properly.

The Real Peranakan

The Sambal Udang Belimbing (seasonal) ($26.80) is my favourite in this menu. Featuring the star fruit ‘Belimbing’ that is used to grow in abundance, its tarty and refreshing flavour complents perfectly with the rich lemak taste of coconut milk and with Chef Philip secret recipe. The prawns are very fresh and comes with a bite too.

The Real Peranakan

The Babi Pong The ($22) is an old recipe passed down 5 gens and which requires 3-4 hours of labour in the kitchen. What resulted is a flavourful melt-in-the-mouth pork slices with added spiciness from the green chili.

The Real Peranakan

For dessert we have a platter of homely kuehs, which is colourful for the eyes and delightful in stomach. It’s a sticky sweet ending to the gastronomic journey, and here’s 1 sweet promotion for you.

Fresh Halal Ala Carte Buffet @ Window on the Park

Author: Alexius Chua

Here’s an a la carte buffet with the prettiest presentation we’ve seen. Window on the Park @ Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre has recently introduced the Halal Weekend Dinner Ala-carte Buffet, perfect for date nights or double dates.
And of course, safe distancing and measures must be practised during dining (not more than 5 guests per table).
I like the fact that the dishes served are made to order, so the food is always fresh and in its optimal condition. You can also keep ordering till your stomach desires without needing to queue for the buffet spread.

HolidayInn

Starting with the appetizer, with an assortment of sushi, 3 types of antipasti of the day and mixed greens to freshen and open up your palate. The Local Fare Appetizer Set holds a myriad of dim sum and kueh pie tee, and fruit rojak to munch through.

HolidayInn

Then there’s the Seafood On Ice, which is a platter of succulent fresh seafood comprises Poached Tiger Prawn, Canadian Black Mussel and Lala Clam to warm the cockles of your heart. They are accompanied with Thai Mango Chili Sauce Cocktail Sauce and Hot Sauce Tabasco to further ampt up the flavour.

HolidayInn

By this point we were already like half full but wait there’s more. The local fare highlights continue with the Assorted Satay (chicken, beef and mutton) which is delicious, the Tandoor Chicken Tikka and the signature Claypot Nyonya Laksa with Prawn.

HolidayInn

Just look at that ginormous prawn which takes up like half the portion of the claypot. Noodles are al dente and smooth laksa broth not too spicy, it’s an ultra worthy dish at this value.

HolidayInn

Next comes the all-time favourites – the Seafood in A Wok. It’s a one time table service with precious seafood gems such as flower crab, slipper lobster, prawn, mussel and clams with your choice of signature sauce (Black Pepper or Mushroom Cream Cheese). Full of wok-hei umami, for the seafood lovers it’s the perfect seafood bonanza.

HolidayInn

If you love more seafood like we do, then at the Hawker Highlights section where you can order Singapore Chili Mud Crab with Golden Mantou, Wok Fried Prawn Char Kway Teow and Wrapped baked Fish with Banana Leaf. It’s unlimited servings of over 40 dishes all so you can your heart’s fill.

HolidayInn

There’s still room for desserts right? Their tiered dessert which comprises of assorted nonya kueh, kueh lapis, red velvet cake, tiramisu cake, bread and butter pudding and more, with a selection of coffee or tea. One commendable item in the tier is the durian cake, so light yet so punchy and flavourful. If you don’t mention its dinner I would have thought it’s a high tea set.
There’s also a fruit platter and Chef’s Choice of Local Hot Dessert for those who want to digest their satisfied stomach.

Indulge bountiful feasts at The Carvery @ Park Hotel Alexandra

Author: Alexius Chua

If you want to pig out, you can consider doing so at The Carvery, Park Hotel Alexandra. This popular buffet restaurant celebrates the lunar new year with an abundant array of mouth-watering meats, seafood, sweets and treats that are worth every calorie. There’s also a chance to win a weekend stay at the hotel!

parkhotel

I like my yusheng to have bursts of citrusy sweetness – bonus if its healthy – instead of being blanketed in sugar. The Carvery Golden Eight Treasure Yusheng with Cured Trout and Abalone ($68+) suits my palate perfectly. The combination of shredded vegetables, candied walnuts, fruits and generous topping of cured trout and abalone, all brought together with a slightly tart white balsamic and peach dressing.

parkhotel

Following the tradition of abundant feasting, The Carvery has lined up auspicious marquee highlights of the signature roasts. From chicken, pork, lamb and beef – all these premium meat cuts are served at the carving station right smack in front of the entrance so you won’t missed it.
Using only top quality Australian prime rib further dry-aged with Himalayan salt to concentrate the flavour before slow roasting, the Angus Beef Prime Ribs (weekends only) is the piece de resistance at The Carvery. You just cannot go without trying it!

parkhotel

The signature ones for this CNY includes the Pork Porchetta with Mushroom and Chestnut Stuffing, which is the Chinese Roast Pork made from Prime Grade pork belly with satisfying crunchy crackling skin, and the Spit-Roasted Char Siew Chicken. The bird possesses that sweet, savoury richness which probably came from Chef Ian Hioe’s own seasoning mix of hoisin, superior cooking wine and other condiments.

parkhotel

Of course, you get to enjoy the all-time delectable like the salad and dessert spread, western and Chinese stations, with some given a festive twist. So if you came with a family everyone will surely will have their favourites!

parkhotel

Here’s a bonus for those who dined during the first 3 days of the lunar new year (24 to 27 Jan 2020), will receive a complimentary ‘Golden Prosperity’ Welcome cocktail, and a Lunar New Year Lucky Bag containing a pair of mandarin oranges and a pack of Park Hotel Group angpows. Also, they will be entered into the hotel’s Lunar New Year Grand Draw to win a 2D1N Weekend stay at Park Hotel Alexandra*.
For those born in the lucky year of the Rat (those born in 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996 and 2008), The Carvery will also be giving away complimentary dining vouchers as well.

Prosperity Buffet to Wow at Swissotel Merchant Court

Author: Alexius Chua

To welcome the year of the rat – or metal rat to be more precise – Swissotel Merchant Court have prepared an array of festive dishes and takeaway treats to wow your family and loved ones.
Starting 10 January 2020, The Prosperity Buffet at Ellenborough Market Café will feature notable Chinese dishes such as Steamed Red Garoupa, Dried Oyster Fatt Choy, Fish Maw Soup and many more.
Known for its tantalising medley of Asian and International delights, with a view of the banks of Singapore delight and not forgetting durian pengat, I am piqued by how their CNY dishes would fare

swissotel

The first dish is the Fruity Lobster Yu Sheng, which possessed a delightful mixed texture of crunchiness from the veg and ‘bird nest’ made of fried yam ring, and slight chewiness from the lobster with every bite.
For the second dish, the Roasted Honey-Glazed Char Siew or Crispy Golden Pork Belly Platter, the char siew tastes divine with good fat/lean meat ratio and its roasted to perfection.

swissotel

Nobody would say no to the Braised Buddha’s Temptation Claypot. Brimming with exceptional sea treasure delicacies of abalone, sea cucumber, dried oyster and tiger prawns, every ingredient is artfully placed and tastes heavenly with that broth. The baby abalone is so tender and flavour, yum yum!

swissotel

The rice in this Waxed Duck and Sausage Rice has that nice wok-hei flavour, and the smell floats down heavenly when the lid is lifted. I would definitely finish three bowls of this if not for the fact that my stomach space is almost to the brim at this stage already.

swissotel

The flavours of this Steamed Red Garoupa is textbook good. Traditional, expected and the fish tender to the bones. Coupled with the waxed duck and sausage rice above, it makes a powerful combo of clearing bowls.

swissotel

As mums usually say, you cannot be prosperous without eating Fatt Choy during Chinese New Year, and this Braised Dried Oyster Fatt Choy and Black Moss is so visually appetizing and easy to down there’s no need for mum’s nagging. I really appreciate the flavourful sauce which holds the individual elements really well.

Festive Feast @ The Square Restaurant, Novotel Clarke Quay

Author: Alexius Chua

The sumptuous spread artfully presented at The Square Restaurant @ Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay would have made even King Henry VII envious. Packed in 1 room are 2 buffet spreads – Christmas and Chinese New Year themes – all equally enticing and with sinful desserts to boot.

Novotel Clarke Quay

It’s a merry little Christmas feast at The Square Restaurant from 1st to 31st December 2019. Starting the traditional xmas festive favourites with the proteins – 24-hour roasted brine turkey, roasted beef striploin and roasted lamb leg. There’s also A-la minute pasta with homemade salted egg sauce or Chef Kishen’s new creation – Mala sauce, which is not too spicy for me. Adding on the spread will be Seafood on Ice, Sushi and The Square Signature Laksa.

Novotel Clarke Quay

Here’s something to loosen up your belt for – the desserts. Their homemade Christmas Log Cake, Fruit Cake, The Square Signature Durian Pengat, Chocolate Fondue and Tiramisu are some that’s worth the extra calories for.

Novotel Clarke Quay

Coming in to the second festival which is just 2 months away, the Chinese New Year buffet would kickstarts from 8 January to 8 February 2020. Following the traditions, we have a toss of Yu Sheng to usher the new year with prosperity and start the year on the right foot. The Yu Sheng we had, of course is Novotel-style MEGA.

Novotel Clarke Quay

The spread features assorted Chinese BBQ platter, Roasted Chicken & Duck, Poached Broccoli with Dried Oysters & Black Moss and Dim Sum. The roast is always my favourite, and its perfectly moist and juicy meats perfectly cut by a master carver are worth more than gold.

Novotel Clarke Quay

For Lunar New Year’s eve, there’s the DIY Kong Bak Pau Station, Wok Fried Salted Egg Prawn, Wok Fried Sliced Beef with Fungus and Black pepper Sauce, and the not-to-be-missed traditional Hong Kong Style Steamed Pomfret. It’s freshest of the fish its not overpowered by the sauce, brilliantly executed.
Not to mention local infused pastries like Pandan Egg Tart, Taro Butter Cake, Bak Kwa Chicken Floss Swiss Roll and many other sensational desserts, to make your tummy and the year round and sweet, figuratively speaking.

YUN NANS (云海肴) opens its second outlet @ Westgate in style

Author: Alexius Chua

The largest Yunan F&B chain in the world just opened its 2nd outlet at Westgate, months after its flagship store at Jewel Changi Airport. Serving the local gourmands with its repertoire of highland cuisine (gao yuan liao li), the offering is a mixed bag of deliciousness with subdued stylishness, which I fancy very much.

Yun Nan

What’s different from its flagship store is this exclusive dish – Crispy Hor Fun with Truffle Prawn Broth ($15.90++). Only available at Westgate, the hor fun boasts a delightful interplay of texture of crunchiness and springiness with every bite. Topped with Yunan truffle shavings, when poured with the prawn broth is enough to perfume the whole table. The frying is done well too. The plump prawn is moist with a bite. A simple but satisfying dish.

YunNan

Another dish that is new to the menu is the New Mystery Steam Pot ($33.90++). A fresh take on the classic YUN NAN’s top-selling dish Steam Pot Chicken with a secret ingredient added in to give it a personality. The soup is brewed using a unique technique that does not require a single drop of water. Instead the chicken is pressure-steamed for three hours. The soup is clear, delicate yet nourishing and robust in taste, which distinguishes it from the other versions I find in Singapore. Its an order that won’t disappoint your guests or family members.

YunNan

While I am spoilt with many choices at its flagship store @ Jewel, and tried to gulp down as much and fast as my chopstick’s skill can, this Steamed Red Grouper with Green Peppercorns ($48.80++) is new to me. Unforgettable, in a good way. The tantalising meat is so tender and moist, steamed alongside fresh green peppercorns for that fragrant and subdued numbing effect. Available only in limited quantities per day so do order beforehand.

YunNan

I know I am jumping around here, but the appetizer is good too. One star of the dish is the Shredded Chicken in Chili Lime Dressing ($9.90++). Nutritious black chicken is blanched and shredded by hand, mixed with their own in-house sour and spicy chili lime dressing. Very refreshing and wallet-friendly.

 

Plus, to celebrate its grand opening, Monga will be giving away free limited-edition Monga merchandise to the first 40 customers daily, only from 28 September to 4 October.

Nono’s First Fried Chicken Outlet @ JEM

Author: Alexius Chua

Hailing from the land of vibrant street food culture, Taiwan’s famous fried chicken brand Monga is opening its first-ever outlet at Jurong East Mall in Singapore on 28th September. The brand has generated long snaking queues in the U.K, Canada and its home country, and attributes its popularity to its fresh, tender and juicy thick-cut chicken fillets unlike any other fried chicken brands out there. And funny Taiwanese celebrity Nono is here to blessed the opening. Together with Mingdao Liu, king of Taiwanese Fried Chicken, Monga is born.

Monga

#DidYouKnow that this Taiwanese fried chicken chain got its name from the Wanhua district of Taiwan, which is traditionally known as ‘Monga’. Its Taipei’s oldest district home to the bustling Snake Alley night market which the fried chicken fillet is famous for. So it’s a timely homage to the recent past and share the delicacy across beyond its home country.

Monga

I particularly love sinful oily fried food for its savoury bite. So its natural for me to gravitate towards Monga’s Nuggets (6pcs for $5.90, 9pcs for $7.90) and Fried Chicken Skin ($3.90). So easy to pop these into the mouth which makes them dangerously addictive.

Monga

Of course, who can miss Monga’s main offering – the big slab of fried chicken, every piece is made fresh and served piping hot. 3 flavours – The King ($6.90), which is dusted with original salt and pepper seasoning; Hot Chick ($6.90), dusted with chili paprika powder hand-made from Anaheim peppers; and The Taiker ($6.90), dusted with Japanese sauce and seaweed powder imported from Okinawa.
Among the 3 thick juicys I still adore the original one. The salt and pepper further enhanced the lovely fried taste of the chicken, and it’s just so satisfying mouthfeel to chomp into. Just to think about what I had munch makes me wanting for another bite again, just like a carnivorous caveman.

Monga

There’s also other yummies such as the Signature Fries ($2.90), Seaweed Fries $3.50, and the crowd favourite Sweet Potato Fries with Plum Powder ($3.50). While my hands dived into these finger foods I was humorously distracted by the whimsical fan and the comedic prowess of Nono during the event. For me who lived in Hougang, I must say its worth the trip to visit at least once!

 

Plus, to celebrate its grand opening, Monga will be giving away free limited-edition Monga merchandise to the first 40 customers daily, only from 28 September to 4 October.

SG’s Best Fried Rice @ Din Tai Fung

Author: Alexius Chua

To celebrate for winning the coveted title of Singapore’s Best Fried Rice (Restaurant Category) – organised in conjunction with the debut of Channel 5’s Fried Rice Paradise – The Drama Series – the famed Taiwanese restaurant Din Tai Fung launches a limited-edition XO Fried Rice with Shrimps & Eggs ($15.80). I must say, this fried rice has indeed ‘rice’ to the occasion. Bursting with wok hei, the succulent prawns are served atop aromatic, moist pearl rice mixed with fried flat fish. A special blend of XO sauce and dried scallops gives it a XOXO umami-ness.

Available from 1 – 31 October 2019 or while servings last, this dish is exclusively available at Paragon, BreadTalk IHQ, JEM, Jewel Changi Airport, Junction 8, Marina Bay Link Mall, Marina Bay Sands, Nex, Parkway Parade, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Republic Plaza, Resorts World Sentosa, Suntec City, Tampines Mall, Waterway Point and Wisma Atria only.

Din Tai Fung

Speaking of fried rice, I cannot miss this Fried Rice with Pork Chop. Instead of medley of prawns, it’s a big slice of pork chop cut into chewable pieces. The fried rice looks inviting from below and can hold its place without being overpowered by the pork chop in the flavour zone. An iconic dish that’s unmistakeably everyone’s favourite for its heartiness.

Din Tai Fung

Deviating from the fried rice category, there’s the Chicken Wings in Shrimp Paste (Har Cheong Gai). Texturally, the wings are delightful to munch. The umami of the shrimp paste works perfectly with the chicken, as expected of the standard of Din Tai Fung.

Din Tai Fung

The Deep-fried Handmade Tofu, though doesn’t really appeals much to the eye visually, is actually very appealing to the mouth. It distinguishes itself from other countless versions in Singapore with its inner tender silkiness and non-oily yet crunchy skin. You can order this and will not be disappointed.

Din Tai Fung

Lastly, who can mention Din Tai Fung without mentioning its signature classic Xiao Long Bao? Pretty to look at and really impressive in its soupiness with smooth thin skin layer, this XLB is just cloying for a second helping.
