East Coast Lagoon (东海岸) – Shanghai, China


From the name you know it’s somewhat related to Singapore cuisine. This place took over the previous Lau Pa Sak restaurant and started not too long ago. I was there to have some Singapore food but realized they changed hands. Nevertheless, it’s still Singapore food! But isn’t 东海岸 known as East Coast Park? Hmmm… Rating: 4.5/5. Taste: Pretty close to home and love the fish! Portion: Above average. Service: Not enthusiastic. Must remind them to top up water even though I placed the empty cup beside the aisle.

Rating: 4/5. Taste: Pretty good. Taste pretty close to back home. Portion: Average Service: Really sucks big time. Male captain can stare are me standing at the entrance and after 5 seconds, look away. So many … Continue reading Food Loft 福乐食阁 – Suzhou, China

Most Singaporeans base in Shanghai would know this place. Apparently the oldest Singapore food restaurant in Shanghai. However the location is a little far from the city where most Singapore expats would stay. But, when the crave for authentic Singapore food sets in, taking a cab down to this place is justifiable!
