NEW at AmaSoy ~ JCone, Churro Twist, Hokkaido Milk Soft Servce + YouTube Video with Daniel's Food Diary!
For the first time ever, I wrote a guest blogpost for Daniel's Food Diary! Haha if you're wondering how this came about, it's because after Daniel and I made a YouTube video at AmaSoy together, he said I might as well as write the AmaSoy post for him too!
There are some things which cannot be eaten with eye contact, and the awkwardly-shaped JCone, one of the latest offerings at Amasoy, is one of them (very paiseh lor). You can imagine the laughter we had during the video shoot process lol!

I seldom eat Indian food, but when I do, it's always a sumptuous feast of all my favorite dishes which I can easily rattle off my tongue. Mirchi at The Esplanade Mall not only offered me a taste of North Indian cuisine with these well-loved specialties, but enticed much with delightful additions from their refreshed menu too. Best, it's all very affordable.

Rhubarb Le Restaurant sounds impressive enough to warrant a visit from the group of us. Here's talking about a contemporary French restaurant which aims to serve fine cuisine with personalized service, and boasts of Chef Paul Longworth and Restaurant Manager Jerome Desfonds who are alumni of Au Petit Salut. Besides, the reviews I've read so far skewed towards the positive.

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters Singapore @ Upper Thomson Road ~ What A Lovely Café For Good Coffee!
Since its opening in late October last year, Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters Singapore is lauded by many of my foodie friends for being "one of the best cafés to open in 2014". Erm okay, it's already 2015 now, but better late than never right? So we made our way to its premises along Upper Thomson Road, and what a bright, lovely space it is! Places with loads of natural sunlight (very ideal for photo taking), always gets a thumbs-up from me.

The Restaurant @ SPGG, Dover Road ~ Enjoy Affordable Chinese Zhi-Char Dishes In Air-conditioned Comfort!
The four of us gathered for lunch at one of the more unlikely places ~ The Restaurant @ SPGG within the deep recess of Dover Road. I mean, who would especially go to the guild for Singapore Polytechnic graduates just to have a meal when we're not one of the members or working in the vicinity? But it was the first time I was told that there is a Chinese restaurant within the premises itself so I thought I should just check it out. And it turned out to be quite a good meal in a most relaxing environment.

It's time for another scrumptious feast to usher in the Year of Goat! If you're wondering whether one can ever get tired of Lo Hei Yu Sheng or Pen Cai, well, at least not for this PinkyPiggu yet, especially when there are interesting twists to these quintessential festive dishes. The Thai-Teochew Yaowarat creations offered by TAO Seafood Asia are definitely the ones to go for!

Restaurants with raunchy-sounding names do have that cheeky spark of arousing our curiosity. Think The Naked Finn, and now NUDE Seafood. But "NUDE" in this case only innocently mean: NUtritious & DElicious.
Nevermind the hustle-bustle feeling whenever I step into the central business district, for once I wish I'm earning my dough around the Raffles Place area just so I can have a healthy yet hearty meal at NUDE anytime conveniently during the working week (no getting NUDE during weekends as they're closed). You whose office is at Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) where NUDE is located on level 1, PinkyPiggu envies you!

When a restaurant is named "Beauty In A Pot", there is no need for hard-selling or cheap Groupon deals of any kind to get my eyes twinkling in interest. My body and brain goes into auto-mode: I Must GO!
Who wouldn't? When this hotpot concept by the Paradise Group offers delectable nourishing soup bases with a wide selection of quality ingredients. Yes, the broth is chock-full of collagen-richness! Who wants beauty? Drink more, drink more!

Another round of Lo Hei to usher in Chinese New Year 2015! For the occasion this time, we gathered at Royal Pavilion (官邸), located at the lobby level of award-winning business hotel, Park Regis Singapore.
Known for its new-world Cantonese delicacies and classic dishes, Royal Pavilion presents a fine selection of festive must-haves. Yusheng! Abalone! Lamb specially for the Year of Goat! We had it all!

Woohoo Chinese New Year is coming! What are you looking forward to during this season? For me, one of the highlights is definitely the numerous gatherings with family and friends, which is more often than not, centred around sumptuous meals of Yusheng Lo Hei prosperity toss and luxurious pots of Poon Choi!
In the food blogosphere, we started our CNY feasting considerably early, and one that certainly made a deep impression on me is at Peony Jade Restaurant @ Keppel Club (the other outlet is at Clarke Quay). Their Bonsai-shaped Monies Tree Yusheng came with premium seafood such as lobster, Alaskan crab claws, tuna belly, Atlantic salmon, sweet shrimp and sea urchin, its freshness in taste was further elevated by a unique sweet sauce with notes of citrusy yuzu and..... truffle oil! What a extravagant toss to enormous windfall, good health and longevity! Huat Ah!!!
