[Pre-order Starts Today] Amazing. As a foodie who enjoys both traditional and contemporary flavours, I found them all in this set of 5 dumplings of different flavours. And they were all so perfectly executed.
🔸
Each exquisite flavour features premium ingredients and represents the signature cuisine of each restaurant. You can imagine my anticipation as I tried each of the 5 dumplings (see my IG story highlights).
🔸
They were hand crafted by the chefs from Resorts World Sentosa’s celebrity chef restaurants - Feng Shui Inn, Forest 森, Tangerine, Syun, and Michelin-starred Osia Steak and Seafood Grill.
🔸
The 5 flavours are:
* New Territories Village Traditional Rice Dumpling (a whole abalone and other premium ingredients inside!) - Fengshui Inn
* XO Dumpling with Seafood (glutinous rice was soaked in chicken stock before being stir-fried with housemade XO sauce!) - Forest
* Organic Grains, Lotus Seed and Seaweed Dumplings (healthy dumpling but very very tasty) - Tangerine
* Spiced Beef Cheek Dumpling (filled with premium beef) - Osia Steak and Seafood Grill
* Unagi Dumpling (with Japanese Mochi-Gome rice!) - Syun
🔸
How to get these:
* Pre-order from 1 May to 15 June 2018 (advance order of three working days is required)
* Collection is from 21 May to 18 June 2018 from 12:00pm to 8:00pm daily at Feng Shui Inn, Crockfords Tower G2.
* Tel: 6577 6688 or 6577 6599. Email: [email protected] or [email protected]

Just had an awesome lunch here at Forest 森 Restaurant helmed by Chef Sam Leong, where we also meet Chef Mama Leong and his son Chef Joe Leong.
🔸
Pictured is the best yusheng I've had, and it's not just because of the premium succulent lobster, but also the play of textures with the use of crispy white bait and their refreshing homemade citrus yuzu honey-lime dressing.
🔸
Other dishes include the Japanese Kanto Sea Cucumber, King Prawn, a choice of Australian Lamb Chop or Primrose Pork Belly, Sri Lanka Crab Claw Vermicelli, and Chef Joe's dessert creation - Textures of Sesame. The meal I had is still in my IG story till 31 Jan 12pm, you can watch it for more details. I'll also be posting the other dishes I had here over the next two weeks.

I'll personally recommend these pineapple tarts for two reasons: first, the Singapore-centric flavours here are bold, interesting, but still well balanced; and second, they have a nice packaging which makes it a good gift.
🔸
What are the flavours?
* Bak kwa pineapple tarts (肉干黄梨挞), which contains slivers of bak kwa with charred hints that pairs nicely with the sweet pineapple;
* Spicy Nonya Pineapple Tart (娘惹黄梨塔) which contained Hae Bee Hiam (dried shrimp chilli paste) creating a lovely chilli-sweet mix;
* Orange Peel Pineapple Tart (橙皮黄梨塔) which blends finely chopped orange peel giving this treat a refreshing citrusy flavour, with a delicate honey sweetness.
My favourite? Orange Peel! It's fragrant and delicate.
🔸
Also pictured: lavender cookies and cereal prawn cookies at $18.80 per tin. Honestly, one of the better cookies I've received this year. Recommend too.

This is what I'll recommend if you're buying this as a gift. It's their premium version of their pineapple tarts, and they used XO liquor to soak the pineapple and wolfberries for *a month* before crafting it into these tarts.
🔸
Besides that, this comes in a beautiful two tier box with floral designs, with each pineapple tart individually wrapped (see my IG Story Highlights, under "Food", for my photo of its packaging). Definitely luxurious and presentable.

Cute ingots! This is a classic favourite shaped auspiciously to symbolise wealth for this new year, and this wealth I am happy to have more of 😁
🔸
Smooth pineapple paste encased in soft pastry with buttery undertones, giving that crust and its paste a seamless luscious texture.

You saw me lohei at home last night, that's because Carvery of Park Hotel Alexandra is offering this lohei for takeaway, starting 22 Jan next Monday to 2 March.
🔸
This came with excellent pulled pork, with fragrance that wafted out as soon as I opened the box. It was marinated in thyme, rosemary, juniper berries and bay leaves, then slow roasted for 4 hours till fork tender. It was also served with very interesting sides - fried fish skin, caramelized walnuts, granny smith apple, red cabbage, orange pearls (you know the bursting boba in some bubble tea?) and fried pickled ginger. As part of the lohei tradition, olive oil, peach balsamic dressing and tortilla chips are provided separately for you to pour in while saying the auspicious greetings.
🔸
They have a traditonal yusheng with fish too - the golden eight treasures yusheng sliced cured trout, but only for dine in.

Every year, my sister in law would buy me a tub of her favourite Cedele's pineapple tarts, which is officially called "pineapple pocket pie".
🔸
This is probably due to their shape, which allows it to have my ideal ratio of pastry to pineapple fillings - more proportion of pastry than open top ones, and more proportion of pineapple fillings compared to enclosed ones.
🔸
The jam wasn't too sweet either, and that crust was very crumbly and melty, so pick it up with care or it'll collapse before you eat it.

When a family-owned cafe makes pineapple tarts, you're more or less assured it'll be handmade with love to honour the family recipe.
🔸
They serve open top pineapple tarts on a crunchy pastry. If you're not sure if you'll like them enough to buy a whole tub, you can get their sampler packs at $6.25 per pack (pictured on the right with a ribbon) to try them first. Besides the pineapple tarts, they also sell sugee almond cookies in a tub ($16.80 for 22 pieces).

The outlet at Chinatown serves traditonal dishes too, such as steamed cai xin with minced pork and Chinese sausage, and this 猪脚醋. I like that it's full of ginger aroma and the trotters are tender and succulent after simmering in the aromatic, sweet and sour vinegar. Some will like that it's not too sour, though I like my pig trotter vinegar to be more sour for more kick.

CNY is here, and Cedele will start taking orders for their CNY goodies from tomorrow. What's pictured here are their CNY cakes, which are:
* Cranberry yuzu cake ($18, 500g)
* Pandan ogura cake ($30, 8 inch square)
* Red velvet marble cake ($18, 500g)
🔸
I especially like how dense but soft the Pandan Ogura Cake is, and that alluring scent of pandan once you open the box. The red velvet is soft and balanced, while those with sweettooth may like the crispy sweet frosting on the cranberry yuzu butter cake
🔸
Besides these cakes, I've also tried the following cookies:
* Pineapple pocket pie ($22.80)
* Earl grey cookies ($21.50)
* Green tea cookies ($21.50)
* Cornflake cookies ($21.50)
* Lemongrass pistachio cookies ($21.50)
* Nasi ulam florentine cookies ($21.50)
These cookies are also available for order from tomorrow, I'll talk about some of these cookies in another post, but feel free to DM me if you want more of my views before you order tmr.
🔸
You can order these online at www.cedelemarket.com.sg, or at all Cedele outlets till 2 March or while stocks last.
