Whet your appetite as Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant unveils new signature dishes just in time before the festive season.

Elevating the traditional 赛螃蟹, the new signature Stir-fried Lobster with Egg White & Crab Roe is a lip-smacking good dish. Combining fresh succulent lobster meat with slight briny crab roe.

Other dishes worth trying include their Poached Rice with Seafood in Superior Broth and the Poached Sea Perch with Chinese Rice Wine.

Ventured into this shaokao 烧烤 place round the corner as the popular one has a long wait time.

Offering BBQ meat and vegetable skewers (range from $1), the adventurous can get more exotic options like pig heart, lamb kidney, even chicken head. Be careful though as they are heavily spiced that I accidentally choke on one and got teary. Recommend to get Tsing Dao Beer so you can gulp down anytime.

Firecracker Chicken ($14) and Crayfish ($38) are some tantalising mains to try.

最初的。Simple Taiwanese fare @true_breakfast

For homely comforting soup, their Guo Shao Egg Noodle ($5), consist of deep-fried noodles (aka yi mian) with pork slices and vegetables, is an excellent option to have.

And what’s Taiwan breakfast without their Egg Crepe aka Dan Bing蛋餅. The thin crepe is coated with egg and topped with different fillings such as Corn ($4), Luncheon Meat ($4.50) or Meat Floss ($4.50)

Wallet-friendly Taiwanese stall in AMK heartlands, near Nanyang Polytechnic.

Ordered a simple bowl of Braised Pork Rice ($3.80) and addition of $1 for the braised egg. Though value-for-money set I’ll recommend to go for Braised Pork Bento ($5.90) which includes braised egg, Chinese Sausage and vegetables. Marinated and braised for at least two hours, the tender pork belly bit is flavourful with gravy dripping into the pearl rice below.

Other than their Lu Rou Fan, they have the Salt & Pepper Chicken ($4) another popular Taiwanese snack that we all love. Nice addition as a side but not much to shout about.

@kingoffriedricesg is expanding very quickly with two new outlets this week - one at Tampines and another one at Serangoon!

The fragrant egg fried rice comes in 4 options - Normal, XO sauce, Tom Yum and Mala. Have it plain or with shrimp though I’ll strongly recommend to go for the pork cutlet version which is huge and flavoursome. And that’s what we gotten, their signature Pork Cutlet X.O Fried Rice with Tobiko ($8.90)

吃得满足 as we dig into bowls of Mie Babi, Ngo Hiang and Mailing Goreng.

Along the stretch of newly open cafes, this place made a refreshing change though it was opened two years back. Selling Indo-Chinese food, the interior was modern chic with neon lights and interesting paintings.

Shown here is their new Mie Keriting Babi Komplit Special ($9.88) which there’s Ayam version too. A bowl of springy indo mee covered with house speciality minced pork, charsiew, roast pork, fried wanton and vegetables. It also comes along with a bowl of wanton soup.

Dive into a spread of Yellow Croaker dishes @putien_sg. Marked by their radiant yellowfins, they are known for their tender and boneless texture.

Catch the exciting line-up of SEVEN dishes including their Signature 100-Second Stewed Yellow Croaker. Such as this new dish - Yellow Croaker in Sambal Sauce. The crispy fried dish is well-balanced with over ten kinds of spices including shrimp paste.

Still one of the best spot for clay pot dishes! Lau Wang Claypot is well-known for its Sesame Chicken (from $5.80/small), cooked in a special thick gravy and served in a clay pot.

Succulent boneless chicken made more fragrant with sesame oil, this is available in both Spicy and non-spicy. Remember to order a bowl of white rice!

Pipping hot claypot frog porridge 姜葱田鸡粥. Are you up for it?

@muikeesg claypot version is just excellent! Tender frog legs swimming in savoury-sweet dark soy sauce, the dish is blasted with ginger, spring onion and dried chilli. Remember to pair it with a bowl of Mui Kee’s silky smooth congee.

Other than the signature Lu Rou Fan, @eat3bowls Pasir Panjang outlet offer outlet exclusive dishes like Salted Crispy Chicken. Lightly battered and coated in chilli powder, the bite-sized chunks of chicken were tender and juicy. Grab a iced cold Milk Tea, and it seem to bring us back to the lively Taiwanese night markets!

Long wait time for this popular clay pot after Chinatown Complex, but shiok to have on a “wintery” night.

Pots and pots of clay pot prepared over a charcoal fire, it’s a sight to behold. Filled with chunks of juicy chicken, pork belly, lap cheong (Chinese sausage) and salted fish, drizzle dark soya sauce over before mix it well.

I like to leave my rice a bit longer so it gets more charred and crisp. How do you like yours?

There’s just something comforting about this Taiwanese dish even though it is simply made of braised pork belly over rice.

So we decided to grab a bowl, a new Taiwanese cafe along East Coast Road. The small bowl of Japanese pearl rice was heaped with tender braised meat, egg and picked vegetables. But it is on the pricey end and slightly lacking in flavour
