I’ve always been a huge fan of the food from Wan He Lou, especially their signature award-winning Lobster Porridge. Now, during this heightened alert period, I’m still able to enjoy their food via delivery at home and I ordered recently for me and my family!

I’ve gotta say, the overall quality of the food wasn’t compromised at all despite being delivered. The Lobster Porridge was simply delicious, with its rich, umami broth paired with firm and juicy lobster meat! Whetting our appetites further was the Ice Plant w/ Cherry Tomatoes tossed in sesame sauce that made it so savoury. Completing our delectable meal were two other complementing sides: the flavourful Pan Fried Kurobuta Pork and the dangerously addictive Crispy Lotus Root w/ Salted Egg that are must-tries for me on the menu.

With a minimum order of $50, you can use the promo code ‘STAYSAFE’ to waive off the delivery fee. Wan He Lou is available for both self-collection and delivery. Order now at

Are you craving for both seafood and bubble tea? Uncle Leong Seafood Alexandra has launched a new set menu for 4 pax that combines them both! Here’s what the set menu consists of:

~Shimmering Sand Crab Delight + 4pcs Mantou
~Claypot Red Grouper in Canto Style
~Signature Drunken Prawn
~Salted Egg Nan Ru Pork
~Oyster Sauce Broccoli w/ Fried Shallots
~4 cups of Bubble Tea (choice of Signature Milk Tea or Winter Peach Green Tea) (not pictured)

The Shimmering Sand Crab Delight is without a doubt the standout dish! The sauce is super rich and creamy (goes damn well with the mantou!) while the crab meat is sweet and succulent! Other favourites are the Signature Drunken Prawn (love the herbalicious broth!) and Salted Egg Nan Ru Pork (very addictive!). As for the bubble tea, I like the refreshing Winter Peach Green Tea!

This set meal promo is valid till 13th June 2021, and is valid only at Uncle Leong Seafood Alexandra. Available for both pick up & islandwide delivery at or contact +65 6259 9861. You can check out Uncle Leong Alexandra’s Facebook and Instagram pages for details on Group Buy too.

Another must order dish is their Signature San Lou Beehoon, which was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. Pair it with sambal belacan chilli for the best taste experience!

Had a good hearty dinner with my foodie friends recently at San Low Restaurant, a relatively new Tze Char stall located at Geylang Lorong 7.

The standout dish for me personally was the White Pepper Crab, which was packed full of umami flavour, and not too overpowering at the same time. They use only live crabs here, which explained why the crab meat tasted so fresh and sweet! Highly recommended!

Nourishing and delicious, the Steam Pot Chicken Soup with Yunnan Red Mushrooms is brewed using a unique technique that does not require any drop of water. The chicken feet, along with wild red mushrooms from Yunnan, are pressure-steamed for 3 hours. Clear with no hint of greasiness, the soup had a slightly red hue, with added fragrance from the mushrooms.

The Poached Seabass in Spicy Pickled Vegetable Broth showcase Yunnans’s mustard greens. A duo of pickled vegetables is used to achieve a winning combination of flavours. The pickled vegetables are fried with pickled chillies and freshly ground fresh chillies for a piquant soup base, then cooked with ingredients such as seabass, vermicelli and tofu. This is a very moreish dish that goes well with rice.

Poached rice, along with fresh seafood such as clams and prawns, are cooked with YUNNANS signature prawn broth. The dish is then topped with crispy rice pops. This exquisite dish had an interplay of flavours and texture with every bite, from the sweetness and freshness of the seafood to the savoury punch and crunchiness of the rice pops!

The dishes will be available from now till 28th Feb 2021 at all Tim Ho Wan restaurants in Singapore. The new CNY dishes include:

~Maine Lobster & Scallop Fried Radish Cake
~Abalone Pork & Shrimp Dumplings
~Steamed Yam Cake w/ Chinese Sausage
~Crispy Prawn Paste Wings
~Golden Custard Bun (Fried / Steamed)
~Pan Fried Water Chestnut Cake & Nian Gao

My favourite dish is the Maine Lobster & Scallop Fried Radish Cake, which features sweet and succulent Maine lobster paired with premium grade scallops and chunks of fresh sweet radish along with a spicy kick enlivened with fiery wok hei! A perfect pairing packed with umami flavour! Other dishes I really like are the Crispy Prawn Paste Wings and Steamed Yam Cake w/ Chinese Sausage!

Chen Fu Ji is reputable for its fried rice (which has a recipe of 1400 years!), so naturally i had very high expectations and i’m glad to say it did not disappoint one bit! I’m not exaggerating when i say this was one of the best fried rice i’ve ever tried; each grain of rice was evenly coated with egg, and served with freshly peeled crab meat (not the frozen kind)! So fragrant and delicious!

Lam’s Garden is located on the 2nd floor of City Gate, and specialises in Tze Char dishes like their popular Twin Towers Seafood Crispy Noodles!

The above mentioned Twin Towers Seafood Crispy Noodles is certainly worth the hype! This eye catching dish consists of 2 fragrant and crispy ‘sheng mian’ towers sitting on a sea of thick, starchy and savoury gravy filled with seafood like clams, prawns and fish slices! This definitely wins in its presentation and in its taste as well! Highly recommended!

The Crispy Duck w/ Dried Chillies is made using fresh duck, which is deboned by hand in the kitchen. This ensures that the fresh remains tender and is convenient to eat. The meat is cut into strips, then deep-fried until crispy before it is stir-fried with chillies from Yunnan’s Qiubei county and crispy broad beans. This dish is fragrant, spicy and extremely appetising, and marks the first time YUNNANS is offering a duck mainstay.

Yanxi Palace Steamboat is a newly opened hotpot restaurant located at The Great Ballroom @ Hotel RE!, offering a premium hotpot experience with soup bases that are all made from scratch, doubled boiled and simmered on stove for hours!

Choose from 8 soup bases, like Imperial Elixir Youth Soup, Buddha Jumps Over the Wall, Mala Soup and more! I’d highly recommend the first 2 soup bases; the Imperial Elixir Youth Soup is rich in collagen while the Buddha Jumps Over the Wall soup is brewed using the finest ingredients and herbs such as Ginseng! Both soups are really nourishing, and taste great too!

Their menu covers a great selection of dishes from premium Wagyu beef to Seafood and really insta-worthy ones like Rose Tofu, Rose Beef Tongue, Seafood Lollipop, Organic Handmade Rainbow Noodles and Ice Jelly Desserts!

Opening Promo till 13th December 2020 (not valid for Fri, Sat, Sun, PH & PH Eve):
