With a crispy crust on the outside, the yuzu-shaped baked buns are fluffy inside and full of caramelized char siew (barbequed pork). The prominent sweet-citrusy notes of yuzu hit all the right spots. ๐Ÿ˜š

Three Eggs Chinese Spinach ($14) is my all-time favourite. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Accompanied with egg white, salted egg and century egg, the Chinese spinach nestled in the creamy and flavourful homemade superior broth. It was so good that we even "yum seng" (bottoms up) the remaining broth.

Resembling a gold bar, we fought for every piece of this unassuming Pumpkin Homemade Bean Curd ($12) with our chopsticks and spoons. ๐Ÿ˜€ The bean curd is so silky soft and the pumpkin sauce is so delectable. We wiped the plate clean and regretted for not ordering a bigger portion. ๐Ÿ˜…

Champagne Pork Ribs ($16) is a must-try at Diamond Kitchen (@diamondkitchensg). Those soft and tender deboned pork ribs are covered in sticky and caramelized coat. The flavours are so intense and memorable. We are still raving about this even after lunch was over.

Are you the one in your family who always have to decide where and what to eat? You won't want to go wrong and disappoint your family and friends especially during CNY. Sharing with you, Diamond Kitchen (@diamondkitchensg) is one of my go-to restaurants for this year's CNY celebration. ๐Ÿค—

Golden Cereal Chicken ($16) is popular among all ages because who doesn't love hassle-free boneless fried chicken covered in sweet and savoury crispy cereals? And the pretty golden brown chicken reminds us of the prosperity greeting "้ๅœฐ้ป„้‡‘" (streets paved with gold). ๐Ÿ˜†

If you are having many gatherings for CNY lunches/dinners, consider Diamond Kitchen (@diamondkitchensg).

The "Sauna Prawns" ($42) is one of their signatures. Fresh and big prawns are steamed to perfection on heated stones in a bamboo steamer with herbal stock poured over. ๐Ÿ˜ Open the lid to find these prawns radiating in a bright orange glow. I enjoy every firm and succulent bite albeit the herbal taste is somewhat lacking. But the appealing visuals and novelty always win the hearts of the crowd. ๐Ÿ˜œ

XO Sliced Fish Bee Hoon ($9) from Hong Kong Street Chun Tat Kee located at a coffeeshop along Holland Drive (sorry I can't find the right geotag).

My jaw dropped when the staff came with whole bottle of XO Cognac and poured an overflowing spoonful of that aromatic alcohol into the hot bowl of fish soup. ๐Ÿ˜ I enjoyed that sweet burnt aftertaste and those chunky yet tender sliced fish.

Well, be prepared for some friendly attention as the strong liquor smell soared through tables away. ๐Ÿ˜…

If you've only had cheong fun (steamed rice roll) with char siew (bbq pork) in artificial colouring, try this XO BBQ Pork Steamed Rice Roll ($4.80) at Haikee Brothers (@haikeebrothers). Thick slices of pork with caramelized coat on the outside, and a balance ratio of fats and lean meat. If only the meat was more tender and flavourful for the thin silky rice skin. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Chicken Patty Sandwich ($5.50) from Liang Sandwich Bar (@liangsandwichsg) which is endorsed by Jay Chou and it features Taiwanese scallion pancakes wrapped with varied ingredients. The scallion pancake shares the same consistency as our local favourite roti prata - fluffy and crispy, but the intense flavour of scallions might be an acquired taste for some people... like me. ๐Ÿ˜† Though I didn't enjoy the sandwich, it was comforting that the chicken patty tasted similar to the ones in McDonald's breakfast. #ไธ็ˆฑๆˆ‘ๅฐฑๆ‹‰ๅ€’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

I kid you not! That's a huge slab of Australian Beef Short Ribs! ๐Ÿ˜ Served with egg noodles and side dish of the day, the set only costs $18.90. Though the beef gravy fell short of expectations, I was too impressed by the portion of meat which occupied half of the bowl. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Get 2 sets of Beyond Meatlover's Set at Guo Fu Steamboat for the price of one - $34.90++ with #BurppleBeyond membership! ๐Ÿ˜˜

While waiting for my soup to boil, I had a great time concocting my dipping sauces at the clean and extensive sauce counter. ๐Ÿ˜„ We tried all the 7 meat items and found the sliced lean pork extremely tender with absolute zero gamey flavours. Thumbs up!

I get excited when there is a new dim sum place, do you? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I spotted a rather uncommon item - Baked Black Pepper Duck Buns ($5.50) from the newly opened Guan Dynasty (@guandynasty) at United Square (@unitedsquaremall). The baked bun has an airy and puffy crust on the outside and the filling just overflows beautifully when you break it apart. Sadly, I find the peppery taste too overwhelming and the cubes of duck meat just disappeared in the thick sauce. Seems like the new restaurant has little fine tuning to do... ๐Ÿ˜œ
