Managed to squeeze in time for lunch today at Tsui Wah's 2nd and latest branch at Heeren! Surprisingly, I was ushered to a seat immediately at the 2nd floor alfresco area (though indoor seating would have required a 30 to 45-minute wait).
.
The food promptly arrived within 15 minutes. While the pork chop could have been more tender, it was juicy and the golden-brown toasted butter bun made up for it (swipe ⬅️ to view the bun). What really stole the show though was the Hong Kong Milk Tea (S$3.50++) ☕, served super-hot with the right proportion of tea and milk.
.
Overall, I would say that service was prompt and attentive. Though the prices seemed slightly higher than what I recalled (at the Clarke Quay branch), I would return for that cup of milk tea - and also reminisce that taste of Hong Kong that I probably won't get any time soon.

This long weekend is a wonderful time to catch up with family and friends. Back at Full of Luck again today with the family and finally got to try this dish!
.
Overall, my parents commented that the food here is very flavourful, yet not too salty or oily. Almost like homecooked. Now, that's the seal of approval by my folks, so you can bring your family here too! 😍
.
Btw, there are currently two ongoing National Day specials this month:
🔸This glutinous rice + appetiser + 2 drinks at only S$20 nett; and
🔸3 signature tarts at S$5.40 nett
.
Swipe ⬅️ for more pics and video. The promos are really worth it, don't say #bojio! 😜

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? 😜

Served hot and stuffed with lots of pork and chicken fillings, the meat was overall very soft and tender. This dish was definitely a lot of substance and no filler, really yummy and especially recommended for those who like chicken wings but don’t want to get their hands dirty (like me! 😆).
.
Remember to dip those wings into the restaurant’s homemade chilli sauce for that extra oomph!🌶️

A unique interpretation of the oh-so-familiar roast chicken, this was another invitingly aromatic dish. Get your camera ready on “video” mode as the lid is lifted and the smoke is dramatically revealed.
.
Every piece of chicken was infused with a distinct pu-er tea fragrance and possessed a crispy exterior. Despite being cooked for over 13 hours, the meat was overall still tender, particularly the drumstick/ thigh area.

Our favourite was the poached rice. (And that’s from someone who is not really a fan of pumpkin.) We heard that the pumpkin broth was slowly cooked to perfection for many hours. Indeed, the crispy bits, flavourful broth, fresh fish, mushrooms and wolfberries made for a really dynamic, sublime gastronomic experience. And it felt like a really healthy and nutritious dish for sure.
.
Stay tuned for more posts coming up! 👍

First time at Forest森 at @Sentosa_Island and I had to say that we were impressed by the overall quality. This lobster was really fresh and the meat fell off its shell really easily. Swipe ⬅️ for more pics.
.
Available as part of the 5-course set (S$88++) but we had it at 1-for-1 using @Mastercard. Definitely satiated from the dining experience and of course the good deal. 😜

This was one really nourishing bowl of double-boiled soup with black chicken, fish maw, cordyceps, fish maw and wolfberries. It's unusual for a French restaurant to offer Chinese food as well, but this was definitely done well.
.
I have a really bad habit of eating food when it's relatively more cooled down (because I need to quickly swallow and can hardly taste my food when it's "burning" my throat 😅), but soup is an exception. Must be drunk hot! ❤️

This rice dumpling was the highlight of our lunch! A savoury parcel packed with tender slow-braised Kurobuta pork belly, black truffle, wholesome quinoa, salted egg yolk, chestnut and conpoy, this 粽子 was so flavourful and satisfying. I am not quite a fan of rice, but the generous portions of wholesome ingredients made this so good!
.
Pictured here is only half of the whole dumpling. Swipe LEFT for a closer view. What a smorgasbord of ingredients! Who wants to try this too? ❤

Seasonal Greens || @YansDining
.
Shanghainese cooking emphasises the importance of retaining the original flavours of the raw ingredients and the use of natural condiments. An aesthetic presentation is also important, with ingredients carefully cut and presented in beautiful colours.
.
This cold appetiser from Yan's Dining, one of the few authentic Shanghainese restaurants in Singapore, is one such example of a well-plated dish. I really like those bold, contrasting colours! 😉

Hong Kong Milk Tea ☕ || Tsui Wah Cafe
.
Featuring one of the most legit HK milk teas and HK cafe food in Singapore. The intense tea flavours are well balanced with just the right amount of evaporated milk. My parents also give their stamp of approval. 👍

#ChallengeAccepted! As someone who doesn't relish spicy food, after seeing everyone enjoying hotpot recently, I decided to try a special one today - one with the popular spicy Teddy Bear Mala 🐻 and a new Assam Milk Tea🍹soup-broth combination (S$39.90). The milk tea broth, part of the series of new dishes for the restaurant's 1st Anniversary, was topped with chocolate powder, chocolate wafer and boba.
.
One of the signature items here is the Mermaid Barbie (美人鱼 $18.90) consisting of wagyu beef slices delicately presented around a doll to form the shape of a mermaid. Truly an interesting conversation-starter dish (I shall leave this to your imagination why this is so). 😜 Meat lovers will also enjoy the 1-metre long display of Australian Mutton Slices (S$28.90).
.
Swipe ⬅️ for our photos. Overall, I would say that this was a really memorable meal with numerous Insta-worthy dishes. Btw, one of the new items launched is the Matcha Milk Tea hotpot broth. I love matcha, wonder how this tastes broth-style. Who wants to try this? 😜🙋‍♀️
