Review – The Golden Age Blended Whisky

by thecocktailgeek @ thecocktailgeek

Some say that the golden age of distilling was in the 1960's and 1970's; a time from which some revered whiskies arose.  In a move that might be considered equally brave and mad, The Blended Whisky Company has thrown together (probably with greater care than the term implies) a selection of malts aged for over 40 years.

Alexandra Village Food Centre – 10 Must Try Stalls From Claypot Laksa, BBQ Stingray To Avocado Juice

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Alexandra Village Food Centre, as well as ABC Brickworks Food Centre are two of the most known hawker centres located at Bukit Merah. While the fame might not have reached far and wide, location slightly inconspicuous as it is hidden among car workshops, the food centre offers a wide range of stalls and some quality offerings which make it worth a visit. FYI, it is just a short walk away from IKEA and Queensway Shopping Centre. A friend asked, “Anything there other than Avocado juice?” Perhaps she hasn’t explore enough. Other than those listed here, some of the worthy stalls to check out include Ming’s Prawn Noodle, Tiong Bahru Lien Fa Shui Jing Pau, Leon Kee Claypot Pork Rib Soup, Seng Heng Carrot Cake, and Teochew Braised Duck Rice. (Will update this post after I finished trying more stalls.) Alexandra Village Food Centre – 10 Must Try Stalls From Claypot Laksa, BBQ Stingray To Avocado Juice Zhen Shan Mei Depot Road Claypot Laksa Unit #01-75 Opening Hours: 9am – 5pm (Mon – Sat), Closed Sun Michelin Bib Gourmand Claypot Laksa The Michelin Bib Gourmand listed stall is known for its Laksa ($4, $5) served in a claypot, which is not quite the usual. This ensures that the laksa gravy remains piping hot. The broth is supposedly slow cooked over two hours using a unique blend of spices and ingredients, resulting in a thicker and more flavourful gravy. Coming with toppings including prawns, cockles and fishcakes, I remember it used to taste a lot hotter and better though. Lau Phua Chay Authentic Roasted Delicacies Unit #01-20 Opening Hours: 11am – 7pm (Mon – Fri), 11am – 9pm (Sun), Closed Sat Roasted Meat With Unique Dark Sauce When I noticed almost every table at this side of the hawker stall had that...

Adrift by David Myers – Celebrity Chef Sets Sail With Mod-Asian Cuisine at MBS

Adrift by David Myers – Celebrity Chef Sets Sail With Mod-Asian Cuisine at MBS


DanielFoodDiary.com

Subscribe: Adrift by David Myers had a rhythm, a tempo, an element lacking in many restaurants here. While the small plates meets cocktails concept sounds ‘yawn’ on paper, and is reaching its saturation point in Singapore, there is this magic which makes Chef David Myer’s adventurous new venture a cut above the rest. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Marina Bay Sands has been on a roll in attracting celebrity chefs, from its existing Tetsuya Wakuda, Daniel Boulud, Wolfgang Puck, to David Thompson, Gordon Ramsay, and of course David Myers. Chef David Myers has helmed Comme Ca, Pizzeria Ortica and Hinoki & the Bird in Los Angela, and incorporated his culinary expertise and his travel experiences in Adrift. The mood upon entering can be electrifying. Okay, maybe not that intense, but it was at least upbeat. Beyond the wooden exterior laid a Ginza-inspired cocktail bar, the main dining hall with windows revealing a garden behind, and a private room with a vintage slant. Food is Californian with a Modern Asian edge, such as King Crab Melt with Pimento Cheese ($35) – it’s their signature, Kagoshima Wagyu Beef with Onion Jam ($55), Foie Gras in Little Bahn Mi ($32), Cod with Mantou Bread and Chili Crab Sauce ($28), Arctic Char with Spiced Tomatoes and Curry, and Maine Lobster with Mochi and Shiso ($33). As you have probably noticed, a meal here is a mini-investment from the wallet. Not cheap at all. The prudent diner may consider some of their ‘bar-bites’ overly priced. While reviews have been lauding extremely positively about the food, I thought there were some exceptional items, some misses. My favourite was easily the Crispy Baby Potatoes, with Seaweed and Parmesan ($13) which was proof that simple things could be done remarkably well. These little... Continue Reading

The GREAT Food Festival – 300 Delectable Desserts At Rollin’ Sweet Times, By RWS And SAVOUR, 21 – 24 Sep

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

This is called The GREAT Food Festival for a good reason. 40 international celebrity chefs and bakers, over 100 signature dishes, 300 delectable pastries, all in a 20,000 square metres space (equivalent to the area of the Singapore Padang). The GREAT Food Festival (TGFF) is probably Singapore’s most ambitious and wide-ranging food festival to date, organised by Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) and SAVOUR – the leading lifestyle and gourmet event organiser in Asia. Tempted to go already? TGFF runs for only four days, from 21 to 24 September 2017 (Thurs – Sun) at RWS. The food festival has 5 different themed culinary segments, including: Star Chef Arena – a gourmet arena by star chefs, provides guests with the opportunity to savour over 50 dishes specially curated by Michelin-starred chefs and award-winning restaurants. Heritage Lane – culinary heritage from 10 countries, will allow guests to immerse themselves in various culinary cultures through dishes prepared using family recipes passed down through the generations. Feast of Kings – medieval-styled banquet, where you indulge in an extravagant feast fit for the kings of old. Connoisseur Collection – 4-hands dinners on 25 and 26 September, where award-winning chefs from the Star Chef Arena meet the accomplished Resident Chefs of RWS in a rare team-up.

Jin Ho Mia – “The Good Life” Hotpot With Flavourful Soup, Seafood, Sio Bak And Instant Noodles

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Interesting, what’s with all the Hokkien-named restaurants of late? Jiakpalang, Jiak Kang Tang, Jiak, Kueh Ho Jiak, Chiak, Ho-Jiak. The first one or two can be cute. But after too many similar-sounding ones, differentiation and branding can be tricky. “Jin Ho Mia” which means “a really good life” in Hokkien is sister restaurant to Soi Thai Soi Nice and Atmosphere Bistro. It is located at Alexandra Retail Centre Level 2. Even though you already have an inkling of what it sells from the photos and previous reviews, can you imagine what a restaurant called “Jin Ho Mia” should offer? I imagine an OTT eatery selling luxe food (lobsters, crab porridge), with gold thrown in. You get gold flakes on cakes and softserve, why not the rest? Well, Jin Ho Mia in reality offers rice bowls in the day such as Tom Yum Pao Fan ($14.80), Salmon Poke Bowl ($14.80) and Sweet and Sour Chicken Bowl ($13.80) to cater to those seeking a fuss free lunch; and hot pots with a range of soup bases at night. During dinner time, you can look forward to the Tok Kong Pot ($48.80), Ah Boy Pot ($33.80 – opening special price at $28.80), and Giam Pui Pot ($28.80). Again, I think the names are interesting (I am Hokkien by the way), but wonder what else can be done for better recall. The Tok Kong Pot (which means “out of this world” in Hokkien) features the colossal “Jin Ho Mia Monster” (Alaskan King Crab) accompanied with a hearty portion of seafood ingredients such as sweet, juicy Tiger Prawns and Flower Clams. I had the Ah Boy Pot ($33.80 for two pax), the name a play on the words “Xiao Xian Rou” – which can mean both fresh meat, and a young + cute + hunky...

My first YouTube video!

by noreply@blogger.com (M.May) @ Mayhem

Hey guys! Yes I've been pretty darn MIA for the past... forever a long time and to be honest, I've been switching my concentration on videos instead of pictures since I've been back in Melbourne.

I have yet to pick up the 'Big Canon' and the 'Small Canon' has never left my side since I landed in Melbourne. Yes, I'm very creative with my gadgets' names. If I were to name your new puppy, it would probably be named Dog, or Duck. Quack!

Jibber jabber aside, I'd like to introduce to you my first YouTube video! I do hope you'll enjoy it and I'd appreciate the support!


This video was made mainly for my friends + family and also, myself.

I wanted to show the people around me what Melbourne was like and give them a glimpse of what I notice and love about Melbourne. I was always super excited when my parents visit Melbourne because I would point out every flower and rock that excites me. My mom has been unwillingly dragged out of the house multiple times just so she can see useless stuff, like a tree with white flowers that is 5 minutes drive away.

MUMMY IF YOU'RE READING THIS, YOU HAVE NOT SEEN TSUBY, THE SAMOYED, BY THE BEACH. AND PA, YOU HAVE NOT SEEN MY FUTURE BEACH HOUSE YET.

Also, I realised I'm very bad at describing stuff and I generally am not a fan of describing stuff. That's mainly why my blog's picture heavy, instead of word heavy. If I tried to describe a gorgeous dress, you may end up picturing a two headed flying donkey. Hah. Picture the donkey now.

I also started venturing into video because I'd probably forget Melbourne one day and I wanted to remember Melbourne as much as I can. I really do love the sights and life in Melbourne and if my memory of Melbourne ever gets hazy, I can always look back at the videos.  I will be vlogging my year in Melbourne and I'm aiming to check out as much of Melbourne as possible. That my 2014 Melbourne Resolution.

I may venture into beauty videos in the near future, but right now, I'll take my inspiration as it goes.

I do hope you'll enjoy my first video and getting to know me a little bit more. I usually don't share much about my personal life on my blog, but through these YouTube videos, you'll see a bit more. =D

If you enjoyed my first video and want to see more in the future, it would mean the world if you could thumb me and subscribe!

Cheers!

Miffy Café – Famous Rabbit Hopping To Singapore From October, At Halal Café Kumoya. So CUTE!

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[NEW] Fans of Miffy will hop with joy over this, as Miffy Café is coming to Singapore. This is a pop-up concept that will take place from from 5 October 2017 (Thursday) to 31 December 2017 (Sunday). All the way till Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The pop-up collaboration is taking place with Kumoya, Singapore’s first Halal-certified Japanese-French café. Kumoya is no stranger to character cafes, also behind Cinnamoroll Café which has ended its run recently. The name Kumoya in Japanese refers to fluffy, light cloud house. “Kumo” refers to clouds and “Ya” means house or shop. Miffy is Dick Bruna’s best known and most popular character, featuring in more than 30 books, far more than any other character he created. Many children are able to identify with Miffy and her adventures, and are drawn to its uncomplicated and innocent character and positive attitude. The limited-time menu has been curated and styled by well known food stylist Shirley Wong (Little Miss Bento) and the Kumoya team. Shirley is also consultant of the menu at Gudetama Café Singapore. The menu features detectable Main Courses, Desserts and Beverages that carry the cute Miffy character. Miffy-licious food you can expect include: Splashing Good Fun Japanese Seafood Curry Rice ($24.90) Fluffy Miffy Japanese rice served with fish kamaboko, cheese stars, steamed broccoli, breaded calamari, breaded ebi, breaded scallop and fresh tempura salmon on Japanese curry. You, Me & Miffy Makes 3 Chicken Katsu Burger ($18.90) Crunchy Japanese chicken katsu on Miffy mantou burger served with fries with BBQ dip, fresh garden salad with cheese Teddy and cheese stars. Egg-citing Miffy Smoked Duck Cold Pasta ($17.90) Tri-colour cold pasta served with cute Miffy egg, hand-torched smoked duck, crispy renkon chips and fresh garden salad with goma shoyu dressing. Souperlicious Hot Udon with Breaded Ebi ($20.90)...

Qi Philosophy – Cafe With Scenic Park View, Serving Healthy Meals At SkyTerrace@Dawson

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

The newer cafes are not just about coffee and food anymore, but concept, aesthetics and blending in with the surroundings. I made my way to Qi Philosophy café, and its location may intrigue some curious café hoppers. It is nestled within the compounds of SkyTerrace@Dawson, an award winning Build-To-Order (BTO) HDB development located at 93 Dawson Road. What you get is a cafe set right in the middle of a scenic park environment next to Alexandra Canal Linear Park, with green communal spaces and a park connector just steps away. So while you are having coffee, you can see families, joggers, and cyclists around. The whole concept behind Qi Philosophy is an interesting one. It is a new start-up wellness company that aims to promote awareness for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The menu of the dining café is focused on serving fresh, modern fusion cuisine based on healthy clean eating concept. There is also a small space meant for yoga classes. Offerings are slightly limited for now, with choices of Sandwiches with fillings of Miso Chicken with Asian Slaw, Japanese Egg Salad, Roasted Vegetables with Feta Cheese, Brie with Fresh Tomato & Basil Pesto ($4.50 – $6.00); and Salads of Cranberry & Chicken Rice, and Roasted Vegetable Rice (both $8.00). Other specials included Laksa Pesto ($8.00), Rainbow Mentaiko Pasta ($8.50), Beef Cheek with Rice or Mashed Cauliflower ($16.00), and 3 Cup Chicken ($7.00). Dishes served are generally lower in calorie and sugar. I had a dry Laksa Pesto ($8.00) which came served with a soft egg on top. The pesto component was definitely overpowered the laksa – which turned out to be rather minimal. I wondered if it would have worked better if there was just laksa, or pesto, but not both distinct flavours together. Comparatively, I liked the...

Sinseon Seolleongtang 神仙雪濃湯 – Popular Ox-Bone Soup In Myeongdong Seoul, Opens 24/7

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] Sinseon Seolleongtang 神仙雪濃湯 specialises in the traditional Korean breakfast dish of ox-bone soup. Not considered common in my part of the world though, and its popularity got me intrigued enough. The restaurant which is in operations since 1981, is a chain with multiple locations all across Korea and this branch at Myeongdong is especially famous amongst tourists. You can exit from Myeongdong Station exit 6. The restaurant is just a short walk (about 300m) and one road’s crossing away from the station. The good news for diners is, it is opened for 24 so you can head down any time of the day to satisfy your cravings. Some of the signatures include the classic Seolleongtang – ox-bone stew with boiled rice (7000 Won, 10000 Won for large), the Baekse Seolleongtang (11,000 Won) which is a premium special ox bone soup, the Mandu Seolleongtang which comes with dumplings on top of the classic base (8000 Won), Tteokguk Seolleongtang (7500 Won) which comes with Korean rice cakes on top of the classic base. Other dishes offered incude Kimchijeon – Kimchi Pancake (9,000 won), Dubu Gooey – panfried tofu (9,000 Won), Modeum Suyuk – assorted boiled tender beef (25,000), and Do Gani Suyuk – boiled tender ox knee bone (28,000 Won). The Seolleongtang comes with a bowl of rice and side dishes such as kimchi and pickled radish are also available for self-service at the side of the table. Free refills of rice are also provided. The broth that is served in the restaurant is prepared using fresh ingredients daily, and signature ox-bone soup is made by stewing ox bones, intestines and shank for many hours each day. The ox bones that make up the bulk of the soup’s flavour are imported from Australia. This results in the soup having a mildly...

Original Cake 源味本鋪 – Famous Jiggly Castella Cake Shop In JB, Opening In Singapore At Westgate 23rd Sep

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

So people are still queuing for the fluffy and jiggly Castella Cakes, that became trendy in this part of the world recently. Original Cake 源味本鋪, said to be the first cake store in Taiwan’s Tamsui to specialize in this version of Castella Cakes, has expanded with a few branches in Malaysia. It will open its Singapore outlet at Level 2 of Westgate on the 23rd of September (Saturday). I made my way to Johor Bahru City Square Mall to try it. The ‘adventure’ turned out to be a 1.5 hours travel time from Woodlands, and 20 minutes in shop queue during a weekday afternoon. Castella Cakes in Japan do not look like this, but it was Original Cake which started offering these large pieces of light, pillow-soft pieces in Taiwan. That was in 2011. A large part of its appeal is the ‘drama’ in which the cakes will be cut right in front of you, while you are waiting in line. The steam that dissipates out, and that eggy cake aroma is rather enticing. I initially wanted to just get ONE cake, but after the long wait… might as well get more. Note: The shop is not halal-certified, but it has no pork or lard added. Three types of Castella Cakes are sold here – The Original Flavour at RM15 (SGD$4.80), Cheese at RM20 (SGD6.40) and a Frozen Chocolate at RM25 (SGD$8.50). As for the verdict, it was ALL RIGHT. Not the ground-breaking, life-changing taste that would make me wait in line long-long for this. That was lack of the eggy-flavours and accompanying ‘oomph’ that some of the other Castella brands had. However, I liked that it was light and airy though, and it was surprisingly not that sweet at all. I could have more than one piece without feeling...

Ginza Rokukakutei – Experience Japan’s 1 Michelin Starred Kushiage From $36.50, At Odeon Towers

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Japan’s 1-Michelin starred restaurant Rokukakutei which specialises in Kushiage, has opened an outlet in Singapore at Odeon Towers (next to Bras Basah). A restaurant specialising in kushikatsu — Japanese deep-fried skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables, is not that common in Singapore. Many specialised Japanese restaurants here end up diversifying in one way or another. I remember being impressed with my meal at HAN Japanese Restaurant which previously occupied the same location, and was serving Kushiage as well. Helmed by Chef Hideyuki Tanaka who has 15 years of experience, Rokukakutei uses fresh premium ingredients, most of which are imported from Japan. The skewers are accompanied by 6 different types of sauces, which includes lemon mustard, shoyu, sesame mustard, organic red wine sauce, Japanese salt and pepper. Interestingly, the end of the stick will point to the recommended sauce for you to try. There are two different menus to choose from: Omakase Skewers and Kushiage + Selected Wines Marriage. At S$134++, the Omakase set features 20 skewers, which showcase a medley of meats, seafood and vegetables; a veggie bowl of fresh, steamed and boiled greens; homemade pickles; fruit agar gelatin; and bread. Guests who have smaller appetites can request to stop at any time and the bill will be based on the number of skewers consumed. For 10 skewers, the price will be $79++ and $106.50++ for 15 skewers. If you work out the sums, it would cost between $6.70++ to $7.90++ per stick, which might not be a price some Singaporean diners would be willing to pay. But the quality is there. The good news: Rokukakutei has just introduced a “Kushiage Experience Set”, available everyday from 4:00pm to 8:30pm, applicable for diners who are sitting at the wine bar counter. At only $36.50, diners can savour 5 different types of...

10 Must-Try Stalls At ABC Brickworks Food Centre – Michelin Bib Gourmand Soup, Durian Mango Ice, And Hokkien Mee

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

ABC Brickworks Food Centre is one of the first hawker centres to be built in Singapore in 1970, and is located at 6 Jalan Bukit Merah. In terms of location, it is about a 10 minutes’ walk from IKEA, Queensway Shopping Centre, and there is another food centre Alexandra Village diagonally opposite. The origin of its name is an interesting one, said to be named after “Archipelago Brewery Company”, the first commercial brewery in Singapore. 10 Must-Try Stalls At ABC Brickworks Food Centre Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng Fried Hokkien Mee Unit #01-13 Opening Hours: 3pm – 10:45pm (Mon – Tues, Thurs – Sun) Closed Sun 40 Years Old Hokkien Mee Stall This stall has been around for close to 40 years, and is run by the second generation Mr Toh (who is often seen wearing goggles). His father used to sell the noodles on a pushcart, and moved to this food centre in the 80s. While there are other Hokkien Mee stalls in the same hawker centre, Tiong Bahru Yi Sheng seems to get the longer queue BUT auntie serving may be grouchy at times. Don’t step on her toes. The noodles comes with a sizeable amount of toppings including prawns and pieces of pork belly. What makes it special is the sambal chili with bits of ikan bilis. It is generally drier with good wok-hei. Havelock Rd Blk50 Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee Unit #01-100 Opening Hours: 10.30am – 10.30pm (Wed – Mon), Closed Tues Hokkien Mee with Shiok Sambal Chilli Actually, I usually order from this stall because the queue is shorter, has more zhup (sauce), and I liked it with fresh cut chillis. The stall sells Hokkien Mee in 3 sizes ($3, $4, $5), with each batch cooked fresh to order. The stall started out close to 50...

Samjin Amook 삼진어묵 – Korea’s No. 1 Fishcake Brand Has Opened In Singapore, With 40 Different Fishcakes At ION Orchard

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Good news for Korean fishcake lovers. Samjin Amook 삼진어묵, which is the NUMBER 1 Korean Fishcake brand, has opened its first and only international outlet in Singapore. Started in 1953 at Busan’s Yeong-Do Bong-Nae Traditional Market, Samjin Amook with a history of 65 years, boosts of a total of 20 outlets in South Korea as of now. The brand specialises in “amook” which is “fishcake” in Korean, a popular Korean food made from minced fish. Located at basement 4 at ION Orchard (right beside BAKE Cheesetart), Samjin Amook have adopted its signature “bakery-style” concept for its first Singapore outpost. That means you can pick and select your favourite fishcakes displayed on the shelves. Let the sight and aroma lead your way. The fish cakes are hand-made freshly daily, with majority of the ingredients such as the amook and fresh produce used directly imported from South Korea,. That is why no two amooks are exactly the same. Here’s how the system works: the labels on display are categorised into Spicy (Red colour) and Non-spicy (White colour) so kids and non-spicy lovers can get to enjoy them. Each piece cost between $1.20 – $5.50 which is inexpensive, and makes a convenient takeaway snack. Coming in various shapes, sizes and flavours with a total of 40 different types of fishcakes here are the Top 10 Bestsellers for your consideration: Amook Croquette ($2.30) The bestseller in South Korea. I can understand why this item is so popular, given its appetising looks and tempting fillings. The croquettes were first coated with amook then breadcrumbs before deep-frying to a golden-brown shade – crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside. The Croquette came in 6 different flavours, individually packed with a takeaway box for purchase of 6 or more, and they included Curry, Chili Pepper (Spicy),...

MSUToday

"Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good." I stumbled across this quote the other day, attributed to Minor Myers Jr., who was the president of Illinois Wesleyan University.He might have run another university and he may not have been a Spartan but, to me, that phrase captures the essence of what being a Spartan is all about.I know that Spartans go into the world and do well. I know lots of them and I know many have incredible success in their careers and lives. That's a great thing. They came to MSU, got an excellent education and were able to go out and do well. Who can ask for anything more out of a university?Well, Spartans do. It simply isn't enough to just do well. If you're a student, it isn't enough to just do well in class and learn from lectures and books and graduate. If you're a professor, it isn't enough to just be a good instructor in the classroom. If you're an alumnus, it isn't enough to graduate from MSU.

11 Best Korean Coffee Chains – When You Are SEOUL Craving For Coffee & Cakes

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] It is not exaggerating to say that every 2 to 3 buildings you cross in Seoul, you will find a coffee place. Sometimes you get a row of them, from Angel-in-Us, A Twosome Place, Caffe Bene, Paris Baguette, Ediya Coffee, and Tous Les Jours. These Korean coffee chains have boomed significantly, given big boys Starbucks and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf a run for their money. However, recent article have reported that these chains have reach saturation point, and many have chosen to expand overseas to China and the US. I do not really have a strong personal preference for any, because it would large depend the location I am at. With that said, I like HOLLY Coffee for its ambience and branding, A Twosome Place for the cakes, Tous Les Jours for breads, and Paik’s if I really need inexpensive iced coffee. There are many others such as Droptop, Zoo Cafe, Mango Six, Coffee@Works, and Caffè Pascucci which I would like to try the next time. A Twosome Place Partnerships with Celebrities, and Once Had Lee Min Ho As Endorser It has a strange name, but it means, “A cup of coffee, TWO of us, SOME dessert, PLACE”, and is owned by the CJ Foodville of CJ Group. The chain is a coffee chain in Korea with over 500 outlets. It just expanded to the Chinese market with Lee Min Ho as brand ambassador, and is an upscale coffee chain targeting the more affluent market. So Ji Sub is said to be a major investor. Prices may not be cheap so you can expect to splurge a little at this café. Their coffee and drinks are considered decent, and their cakes above average both in terms of taste and presentation. Some Instagram worthy items include their Red...

D9 Cakery Hilton Singapore – Ultimate Saturday High Tea Buffet With Singapore Flavours. $41++ With “PAY 2, DINE 3” Promo

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Dessert lovers in search for the ultimate hotel high tea buffet can look this way. D9 Cakery at Hilton Singapore features an impressive 6-meter dessert showcase, which I think is unheard of in Singapore (for now). Its weekly Saturday High Tea Buffet from 12pm to 3pm, showcases many of their best homemade patisserie items. Priced from $41++ per person, this is quite value for the money for the spread. Plus, Citibank Cardholders enjoy a “PAY 2, DINE 3” promotion up to the end of March 2018. Time to gather your friends over! This includes the signature Hilton cheesecakes in flavours of Classic American, Blueberry, Caramel, Pecan & Maple; delicious homemade cakes such as Green Tea Matcha, Cassis Caramel, Red Velvet, Fudgy Chocolate; Gourmet Dessert Jars; freshly baked scones; artfully crafted pralines, chocolates, macarons and more. Not forgetting the Lemon Chocolate Fountain comprising of 33% Valrhona White Chocolate with homemade financier, marshmallows and fresh strawberries. The Saturday High Tea Buffet has gone on a recent revamp, with the inclusion of more Singapore flavours and savoury items, while keeping the price THE SAME. With the addition of these new items, the spread has been extended all the way to the back of the restaurant with a number of “live stations”. The “live stations” include Popiah, Kueh Pie Tee, Singapore Laksa, Chicken & Lamb Satay, Hainanese Chicken Rice, and Oyster Omelette. I personally like this better as dishes are cooked fresh, and there is more interactivity with the chefs. Other Singapore favourites you can expect include Seafood Otah-Otah, selection of dim sum such as Steamed Siew Mai, Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf, Spicy Sardine Bun, and Toasted Kaya Bun. D9 Cakery Singapore Flavours & Savoury Items Highlights: Hainanese Chicken Rice Succulent poached chicken with aromatic rice. I liked the tangy, not-too-spicy chilli sauce...

Under Stand Avenue – Creative Container Space At Seoul Forest, Hip Hangout Spot With A Difference

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] Other than Common Ground, Under Stand Avenue 언더스탠드에비뉴 is the other trendy shipping container space to look out for. It is located opposite Seoul Forest at Seongdong-gu, comprising of 116 repurposed colourful containers. Like other similar concept spaces, you can go expecting stalls offering food, knick-knacks, exhibitions and some live shows. It took me about a 30 minutes cab ride to reach from Myeongdong (was 10,000 won in fare, plus minus) but it could be easily reached from Seoul Forest Station. You can follow your tracks of many youths and families who would make their way there. After a quick walk through, I realised that Under Stand Avenue was not like the other container spaces I have been to. Instead of the typical instagrammable food, the offerings were not quite the usual suspects. I navigated past stalls of fresh produce and fruits such as tangerines, arts and handicrafts, and food that actually looked healthy. While most stalls elsewhere were generally run by young people, I could help but notice many local farmers and ajooma (aunties) behind preparing and cooking. Other than some street food of cheese toasts, crepes and grilled cheese sticks, you could find gimbap, japchae, grilled mushrooms, juices and home-brewed bottled wines. Under Stand Avenue actually has a special value. It is a “creative public-interest platform” aimed to help the young generation, migrant women, artists and social entrepreneurs. The different clusters include “Youth Stand” to support the young for job training; “Art Stand” that creates space for artistic experiences; “Power Stand” to provide co-working space for youth entrepreneurs; and “Mom Stand” with training and job opportunities for women – therefore you will find some stalls selling home-cooked food. As Under Stand Avenue is not that big a space, you could dedicate about an hour or so if...

Lime – ‘What the Shell’ Seafood Buffet Extravaganza, With Lobsters, Crabs And The Freshest Shellfish

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

Seafood lovers should not miss this. There are many lobster and crab themed buffets in Singapore, and the kitchen team at Lime, PARKROYAL on Pickering has decided to take their gourmet offerings a step further. ‘What the Shell’, like what the name suggests, is a buffet spread focusing on all types of shellfish and crustaceans. This is MORE than just lobsters and crabs. Starting from 22 September 2017, expect the freshest ocean catch of both International and local flavours. From the European Gratinated Escargots with Pesto Sauce (how many buffets you know have escargots?), Asian style Flower Crab and Shellfish Claypot Congee, to local favourite Singapore Chilli Crab, there should be something for everyone. Here are 8 reasons why you should like ‘What the Shell’ at Lime: 1. Maine Lobsters Maine Lobsters known for their distinctively sweet, succulent white meat and rich flavours, are the star here. The cooked lobster dishes to expect include Maine Lobster with Cajun Hollandaise, Maine Lobster with Jalapeno, Garlic and Citrus Crust, and Maine Lobster Laksa. My favourite was a Maine Lobster with Creamy Mushroom Mustard Sauce and Iberico Cheese dish, in which chunks of lobster meat were cooked with mushroom in a rich creamy mustard sauce, topped with cheese further torched right before serving for a light char and melty cheese. 2. International Flavours Expect some quintessential French flavours such as Seafood Bouillabaisse, Sautéed Vongole with Chardonnay Scallion, and Gratinated Escargots with Pesto Sauce. Not just any ordinary stew, you get a Provençal soupy Bouillabaisse brimming with an assortment of seafood such as prawns, crab claws, mussels, and clams. Best eaten with some toasted bread. From French to Italian, the briny juices from the clams plus the white wine keep the Sautéed Vongole and brothy sauce flavourful. 3. Asian Repertoire and Wok-Fried Dishes This...

Hanilkwan 한일관 – Korean Food Based On Royal Cuisine. The Bulgogi And Goldongban (Bibimbap) Are Some Of The Best

by admin @ DanielFoodDiary.com

[Seoul] Hanilkwan was a surprise find for me, though it already has a reputation of serving quality traditional Korean course meals. If you want authenticity, look this way. The restaurant sometimes known as Han Il Kwan 한일관 or 韓一館, is one of the oldest of its kind in Seoul, having been established since 1939. Let’s start with the credentials. It has been patronised by numerous famous figures including but not limited to the late Korean presidents Syngman Rhee, Park Chung Hee, and Roh Moo Hyun, as well as former Korean president Lee Myung Bak. Hanilkwan has also been featured in the Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide, praised by Michelin inspectors. “Few restaurants in Seoul can claim the same longevity and history as Hanilkwan can. Since 1939, the restaurant has been honoring the traditions of Seoul-style food, rooted in royal court cuisine.” The restaurant also popularised the dish of Neobani, a court dish formerly unknown to ordinary people, with the creation of an easy and time saving cooking method. It has also expanded since its founding and currently has 4 outlets spread across Korea. I visited the branch at Times Square. As for the interior, it was simple, looked casual, minimalistic. The bright lighting also gave a pleasant atmosphere. I observed that many Koreans come here with their families for a hearty dinner meal. Some of the signatures include the Traditional Galbitang – beef short rib soup (15,000 Won), Doenjang-Jigae – soybean paste stew (10,000 Won), Grilled Boneless Short Rib (39,000 Won), Bulgogi (29,000 Won for 200g), Grilled Chadol-Baeggi – beef brisket and seasoned vegetables (18,000 Won), Haemulpajun – seafood pancake (15,000 Won), and Nokdu Bindaeddok – mung bean pancake (12,000 Won). There were various “Hanilkwan” sets available. So while there was a printed English menu, there were a number of permutations...
