Poulet X Celebrity Chef Justin Quek Collaboration! Be Sure To Catch The Delicious Limited-Time Menu Before It's Gone

Whenever I'm at the French rotisserie chicken chain Poulet, my standard order is always their amazing roast chicken but this time round, I was lured by its limited-time menu born of a special collaboration with celebrity chef Justin Quek.

Chef's Justin is famed for his expertise in French fine dining and deep understanding of Asian cuisines. His Franco-Asian cuisine is represented by his signature dishes such as foie gras xiao long bao, and lobster Hokkein noodles.

I was rather excited to see what chef Justin has specially created for Poulet. Happy to say the dishes were super satisfying, and very much worthy of the trip over.

Baan Ying, Royal Square @ Novena - The Great Baan Ying Brunch Is Happening Every Weekend!

Most of our eyes will light up at the mention of... Buffet! Afterall, who doesn't like an abundance of food by paying just a flat price. Can eat and eat till we get our money's worth haha!

For this reason, we gathered one Saturday morning at Baan Ying, where the "The Great Baan Ying Brunch" is happening every weekend from 11am to 3pm.

We lost ourselves in an array of popular Thai favourites from the Land of Smiles without leaving Singapore.

New Ubin Seafood's New Outlet At Zhongshan Park. Still One Of The Best "Tze Char" Places In Singapore.

From Sin Ming to Hillview, CHIJMES, and most recently Zhongshan Park, I've made efforts to visit New Ubin Seafood whenever the family-runned eatery relocates or opens a new outlet. No denying that I'm a fan.

There's this homely tze char element in their offerings that's so captivating. Though I must admit our experience last year at the CHIJMES outlet left us feeling underwhelmed for most parts. We blamed it on opening jitters maybe.

However, one bad experience doesn't wipe out all the good ones so it didn't deter me from checking out New Ubin at Zhongshan Park.

FrapasBar @ The Cathay ~ Affordable Tapas-style French Food With 2-Course Lunch Set At Only $15++

French + Tapas = Frapas

Frapas + Bar = Frapasbar

Putting two and two together, FrapasBar is born as the brainchild of the team behind Saveur.

We love Saveur for its affordable French fare, and now FrapasBar looks set to continue the group's success by offering diners a combination of French cuisine and tapas-style food paired with a well-furnished bar, all set at wallet-friendly prices.

I must say... it's quite a brilliant idea!

Most of us should be familiar with JUMBO Seafood, a Singapore home-grown brand that's best-known for its award-winning... Chilli Crabs!

If I sound excited, it's because I really am. JUMBO's latest outlet had opened last December in the convenience of town in ION Orchard, so it's now more accessible than ever to get that chilli crab craving satisfied.

We can also expect new and outlet-exclusive dishes dishes from dim sum and pao fan, to seafood signatures. For the first time ever, JUMBO Seafood's chilli crab is presented in bite-sized dim sum offerings. I totally recommend the trio of chilli crab dim sum that got our whole table enamoured.
