Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi @ 100AM ~ Japanese Soba Restaurant With First-Ever Mount Fuji Icy Hotpot!



No, it is not a hallucination. The hotpot you see in the picture above really does look like an ice mountain!

Aptly named Mount Fuji Icy Hotpot, the eye-catching offering is said to be Singapore's first and only ice hotpot. Launched by and only available at Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi, the Japanese soba restaurant located on the third level of 100AM mall at Tanjong Pagar.

CHAR Restaurant @ Jalan Besar - Fantastic Char Siew, Roasted Delights & New Dishes On The Menu!



If you have no time to read this post, here's the summary: CHAR is totally char-ged with deliciousness!

Have some moments? Perhaps you can have a look at the char siew photos and imagine what I'm trying to put across. Better still, just read what I wrote lah haha.

Since opening in 2014, CHAR Restaurant has been steadily building up a reputation for serving up one of the best char siew or Chinese-style barbecued pork in Singapore. Though it has been quite a while since I last visited CHAR's former premises at Guillemard Road, the ambrosial taste and lovely tenderness of their pork belly char siew remains unforgettable in my heart.

The recent trip to CHAR's current location along Jalan Besar rekindled that lingering feeling all over again.

Wolfgang's Steakhouse @ Intercontinental Singapore Robertson Quay Hotel ~ Famed NYC Steakhouse Serves Excellent Steaks!



Internationally-renowned Wolfgang's Steakhouse from New York City has finally arrived in Singapore after a string of openings across some of Asia's most vibrant cities including Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul!

Being steak lovers, we are naturally delighted to see the opening of Wolfgang's Steakhouse on our local shores. To avoid any confusion, I must first share that the restaurant and bar is located at Intercontinental Singapore Robertson Quay hotel (not the one at Bugis), and in no way related to CUT by Wolfgang Puck at MBS.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is a family-run restaurant founded by father-son team, Wolfgang and Peter Zwiener, more than 13-years ago. Wolfgang had worked decades of his life in Brooklyn's legendary Peter Luger steakhouse, and eventually open his own restaurant using his expertise to provide diners a steak dining experience centered around quality ingredients, traditional cooking techniques and high service standards.

Pince & Pints Restaurant And Bar, New Outlet At Katong ~ Lobster Roll, Lobster Noodles, Chili Lobster And More!



It's "everything lobster" at Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar!

After first opening its doors at Singapore's Duxton Road in 2014, and following an outpost in Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur, the homegrown lobster establishment has just launched a franchise outlet at the charming neighborhood of Katong a few weeks ago.

Our appetite for the crustacean quickly guided our way over. We looked forward to an array of lobster dishes, and were told that live wild-caught lobsters are air-flown direct weekly from the Atlantic Coast. These are stored in the restaurant's state-of-the-art tank facility till preparation for consumption. I'm impressed! How much fresher can it get?

Tóng Lè Private Dining 同樂 @ OUE Tower Presents An Exquisite Niigata City Menu For A Limited Period!



Tóng Lè Private Dining 同樂 is reputed to be one of Singapore's finest Chinese restaurants, and I've heard only good things about its food, service and ambience from my friends who have dined there before. True that!

The purpose of my visit was to check out Tóng Lè's special two-week menu (available from 27th October to 11th November 2017) which features Autumn seasonal produce from Japan's Niigata City.

This is actually the second year in which the collaboration is taking place. Chef Ken Ling was so impressed with the products last year, that he flew to Niigata City again this year to personally handpick the freshest Autumn ingredients to be used for the delectable 6-course menu.

Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant 鳗满, NEW 2nd Outlet @ DUO Galleria ~ Full Of Grilled Freshwater Eel Goodness



My man of the moment is undeniably..... Man Man 鳗满 ! <3

Opened by Chef Teppei Yamashita, the flagship store at Keong Saik Road is widely-known for being the first Japanese unagi specialty restaurant in Singapore, its delicious grilled eel that bagged a Michelin Bib Gourmand status, and forever long queue.

Okay lah, not exactly "forever", but stories of having to stand in line for any time between 30 minutes to 2 hours in less-than-favorable weather conditions without any shelter just to enjoy an unagi meal are not unheard of.

So the opening of a second Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant at DUO Galleria (directly connected to Bugis mrt station EW12/DT14) came as great news for those who wish to skip the waiting torture yet get a taste of what's the hype all about. Last we heard, there isn't any long queue at this 2nd outlet yet.

Kin Cow @ Chinatown Point ~ Delicious Thai Beef Noodles!


 

Busy until no time to eat? For us foodies (at least for me), the busier we are, the more food we need to keep our sanity. Lol!

Nothing was more suitable than a meal of comforting, beefy goodness at Kin Cow.

Conveniently located at Chinatown Point, the name of the casual eatery takes a clever pun out of "Kin Khao", which means "eat rice", and is also a commonly-used Thai expression for "to eat".

Blue Lotus Chinese Grill House @ Tanjong Pagar Centre ~ Delicious Contemporary Chinese Cuisine!



After Blue Lotus - Chinese Eating House (Quayside Isle) and Blue Lotus - Chinese Noodle Bar (Science Park Drive), entrepreneur Ricky Ng has recently launched his third restaurant, Blue Lotus - Chinese Grill House, at Tanjong Pagar Centre.

Admittedly, I wasn't familiar with any of Blue Lotus' dining concept until my recent visit to this latest addition. The dishes we tried successfully married Chinese flavors and essence with Western culinary techniques, and presented a taste that's familiar yet different with a brilliant, new-age twist.

It was a delightful dining discovery that should have been made sooner, but fortunately it's still not too late.
