We used to come here quite often: Among the better Chinese restaurants in the Orchard Road area, it's relatively easy to get a booking at the last minute, and they accept the Entertainer 1-for-1 offer (sadly, not any more). I have stayed away after the food poisoning scandal that caused it to get a C-good safety rating for a while. That temporary absence provided a fresh view of the restaurant: it's pretty good, but in all aspects (food, service, décor) it's significantly inferior to the Summer Pavilion at the Ritz Carlton- one rare instance where a Pavilion is better than a Palace! In the Orchard Rd area, I will go there only if I cannot get a last-minute booking at Jiang-Nan Chun, Hua Ting, Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck or TeoChew!

The Mooncake Festival is coming soon again! This year, Li Bai introduces 2 new flavours:
.
🔸[Baked] Super Seeds Mixed Nuts (S$76 for 4): Definitely my favourite, cos I really love the crunch in these! Each piece packs a nutritional punch of wholesome elements that lends a textural contrast of sweet and savoury flavours with each bite. Incorporating 10 healthy ingredients comprising superfoods that are rich in anti-oxidants, the medley consists of chia seed, walnut, macadamia nut, almond, pine nut, prune, pistachio, apricot, melon seed and goji berry.
.
🔸[Snowskin] Mini Chia Seed Dark Chocolate (S$68 for 8): Here's one for those like bitter sweet dark chocolate. This flavour is a healthful indulgent creation generously studded with chia seeds. What a good way to sneak some of these superfood into a chocoholic's diet! 😏

寿. Or longevity in Chinese.
.
Throwback to when we celebrated our uncle's 70th birthday at Golden Peony. Wonderful Cantonese food and impeccable service. 👍 More posts coming up!

August - the month of family celebrations and gatherings for us. ❤️
.
We chose the Silver Needle set (S$118++/pax) for my mother-in-law's birthday and this noodles was clearly my favourite amongst the dishes. The lobster was really flavourful and there was such a generous serving of lobster meat in there!
.
Btw, have you heard that egg noodles/ 伊面 🍜 is eaten on birthdays as a symbol of longevity? 😜

Mooncake fever heats up in this final week before the festival! So, do you prefer traditional flavours (e.g. lotus paste with yolk) or different ones?
.
This year, Mandarin Orchard unveils a new flavour - the elegantly gold-dusted Charcoal-baked Yuzu and Mixed Nuts with Black Sesame Paste! While my parents can be quite traditional (no snowskin for them 😜), I was surprised that they liked this flavour. The black sesame was rich, and nuts/ dried golden yuzu offered good contrasting colour and texture.
.
Btw, one of the allures of buying mooncakes is also the beautiful packaging. Just look at this modern turquoise tower box with pops of fuchsia! Spot the hotel's signature lattice pattern, accentuated by a motif of peony flowers in copper foil stamping.

Pricey but still delicious dim sum! Very satisfying meal

Family gatherings call for dim sum feasts at this classic spot along Maxwell Road. Boasting an extensive menu with over 100 items to pick from, you'll be spoilt for choice here. Pork lovers, don't hesitate on the intensely umami and porky Spicy Congee in Mixed Treasures ($10) or the juicy and crispy Roasted Pork ($16). If you're a fan of salted egg yolk, the signature Salted Egg Yolk Bun ($5.80) with a perfectly savoury-sweet filling is a must-get.

Review of the new Kai Duck restaurant at Takashimaya. Understated, casual but chic atmosphere. The long menu scores high on innovation, with lots of creative dishes or classic ones with a new touch. Unfortunately- and this may be teething issue only - execution can be improved: the duck tongues are too soft, the poached rice a bit too bland, the chilled black fungus a bit too salty, the roasted duck is less good than at ImpTreas or Crystal Jade, etc. The high-on-innovation/average-on-execution comment also applies to the staff uniform: unusual but highly unlikely to win any fashion award.

Yummy dimsum at affordable prices. Preferred the steam dishes over the fried ones. Recommend the har gao and siewmai!
