[ Food Week — Heritage Restaurants ] Over these couple of years, I’ve been surprised time and time again by how different similar dishes can be when recreated by different dialect groups. And after tasting the variants, I’ve become even firmer a believer that we’ve to preserve these individual threads of heritage lest they become products of distant memory.

One of the dishes I tend to associate with the wrong dialect group is the quintessential fish (head) steamboat. It became one of my fav comfort foods as I was growing up, and whenever there were any signs of impending rain, I’d strongar-, suggest we get it for dinner.

So imagine my surprise when a certain someone’s fam decided to bring me to have fish head charcoal steamboat… in one of their fav Hainanese heritage restaurants, Jin Wee!

Located in Siglap in the unit next to the area’s Wine Connection stall (pst, you can cross-order from JW to there and vice versa btw!), as a testament to its reputation, meal times are characterised by extending to the far edge of its territory. Even then, you can still find hordes of eager patrons — families, couples, and friends alike — perched at its perimeter hawking for seats in eager anticipation.

As someone who never really had Hainanese food I was astounded by the restaurant’s popularity.

Oh, and they’ve these huge porcelain pots that sit amidst diners in the alfresco area as well. Housing both soups and pots of their renowned Jiao Hua Chicken, it’s very worth the order if you’ve the stomach space for it.

We ended up with an order of their Red Grouper Charcoal Steamboat, Hai Nan Pork Chop, Claypot Chicken, and Chap Chye.

The pork chops were as delightful as I’d expected them to be — the crunch they boasted under all the sauce would give even a good Korean fried chicken a run for its money! The fish steamboat had me ladling bowl after bowl because of how flavourful it was (defo on par, if not more, than the Teochew ver). The main difference was a subtle simmer of sweetness and the slightly thicker, almost milky texture courtesy of the sheer amount of yam present. The other two dishes were fab too: The veg was fresh and crisp, and the chicken was smooth and tender!

Who'd have thought you'd find pasta this delicious at a craft beer bar? Generous chunks of hand-picked crab claw flesh and fiery bits of chilli flakes are entangled in the mess of linguine sauced in an aromatic chilli sesame oil , ensuring burning flavour with every mouthful. The shrimp are plump and juicy as well and complement the pasta perfectly.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @beerbasketkatong for the hospitality!

Taste: 3.5/5

Taste less oil and more goodness in every bite. This is a healthier version of chicken rice where they use free range kampung chicken cooked in traditional Hainanese style and served with house-made chilli and ginger sauce. The chicken was soft, tender and juicy while the rice was fragrant, not too oily and firm. It is healthier, lesser fats, leaner, lower in cholesterol, contains more fibre and richer in flavour.

The hometown tofu is house-made with fresh soy milk. It was crisp on the outside and silky smooth on the inside, sitting in a savoury minced meat sauce.

I love how the subtle sweetness and different textures meld into every bite, like a warm hug exuding love on the tastebuds.

Sometimes, old is gold. 🙆🏻‍♀️❤️🇸🇬

All that nasty artificial flavourings and colourings in regular gelatos and ice creams are thrown out of the window as Alfero Gelato uses only 100% natural ingredients of the highest quality and in the Allulose series, the team has went over and beyond by substituting sugar with allulose, an ingredient that tastes and performs like sugar but with a tenth of the calories and without the cavity-causing and insulin-spiking drawbacks. Coupled with the fact that Alfero Gelato is 96% fat free and made with free range fresh milk, those on strict diets can still indulge in it without worry.

Out of the seven Allulose series, four of them are made with Alfero Gelato’s best selling flavours such as the Pistachio ($20), Bacio ($20), Dark Chocolate ($2) and Mango Sorbet ($18). Besides purchasing them from their retail outlet in Parkway Parade, you can also get them via their online store (link below) and there is a 20% off storewide for online purchases from now till 30 June when you use the promo code at checkout. Additionally, you are entitled to free delivery if you spend above $75 or a delivery fee applies for orders below that amount.

Featuring a bouquet of lychee and rose aromas, it has a delicate balance of subtle sweetness and light hoppiness against a mild malty backbone. The combination of flavours makes this a delightful treat that is sure to sparkle on the palate with its refreshing and crisp finish 》$10 (HH) / $14

The truffle mushroom pizza is packed with assorted mushroom and melted mozzarella for a luscious, gooey combination of flavours together with truffle paste and a drizzle of truffle oil that gives an irreplaceable earthiness 》$18

Tender and fall-off-the-bone St Louise pork ribs, slathered in copious amounts of smoky BBQ sauce with a sticky sweetness. Served alongside with grilled tomato, mashed potato, salad 》$26

Meatballs with linguine, minced beef tomato sauce and grated cheese 》$18

Although I am someone who doesn't take beef, I find the sauce quite tasty and goes well with al-dente linguine. It would probably be better if the bolognese sauce can be thicker.

Thanks Burpple for the invite and Beer Basket for hosting.

Pasta dishes are the ultimate crowd pleaser and meal-time staple that always come to mind. This dish is one of my favourites with al-dente linguine prepared with hand-picked crab meat claw, crunchy shrimps, chilli flakes and sesame chilli oil. Not forgetting that this is applicable for Beyond redemption that makes me want to come back here soon for another round of pasta and beer session 》$18
