The Manhattan FISH MARKET – Kallang, Singapore


Recently another media invite to The Manhattan FISH MARKET (MFM) at their latest location at Kallang Wave by Ninemer PR PL (Thanks Ying Ying!). My second time to this unusual mall beside Singapore’s brand new Sports Hub. The restaurant is located on the outside of the mall, but pretty nearby the MRT station, hence it isn’t really hard to find. Arrived earlier than the rest of the media, I managed to capture some pics of this new outlet. MFM will be launching their new menu today, 12 November 2014, of 43 new items, in all their 16 outlets Singapore-wide! A very … Continue reading The Manhattan FISH MARKET – Kallang, Singapore

SET – Selegie, Singapore


Recently, I was invited by PR Communications to this newly established 94-seater contemporary cuisine restaurant which commenced operations on National Day (9th August 2014) this year! This restaurant is operated by some ex-Tao employees and is located at the same mall where Tao was. Tao was at the basement of PoMo at Selegie when it started some 6-7 years ago and apparently it closed down before I got back from China this year. Nevertheless, SET (probably the shortest name for a restaurant I’ve ever written!) is here with a brand new swanky decorated premise with a touch of class, located … Continue reading SET – Selegie, Singapore

Product Review – The New Maggi Extra Spicy Curry Instant Noodles


Have you guys tried this yet? Maggi Curry Instant Noodles has always been close to my heart as we grew up with this brand apart from Myojo and Koka. For the usual curry instant noodles, well, it kept me and my camp mates company during our basic training in the Police Academy. I remember us smuggling in these instant noodles and snacking on them at night after lights out. So when I saw this at the supermarket, I told myself I gotta try this, although it’s filled with additives. 😦 Retailing at $3.20 for a pack of 5 x 108g packets, … Continue reading Product Review – The New Maggi Extra Spicy Curry Instant Noodles

香港新发烧腊茶餐厅 – Shenzhen, China


Seems like many first times… if not I will not be writing about them haha… I was heading to my favorite coffee place and was looking for some food before that and I found this place. Apparently it’s a famous chain in Hong Kong since 1974 and they have expanded into Shenzhen since 2002. This place can get quite crowded and there’ll be lots of seats outside this place for those who wanna wait. I didn’t try a lot as I’m controlling my food intake and was alone. So I tried what a Cha Can Ting should be good for; … Continue reading 香港新发烧腊茶餐厅 – Shenzhen, China

Taiwan Food Street (台湾小吃街) – Xiamen, China


First time in Xiamen and totally excited over all the hype I got from my friends and documentaries about the food there. Fact is, because of it’s close proximity to Taiwan, you’ll find many similar food types to Taiwan over here. I was a little skeptical because I’ve been to Taipei and the food there is a little bland to my palate. Maybe also because I’m from Singapore, working in the APAC region for years, I have developed a stronger preference to my taste buds. However that said, I have been on a diet and have been taking lotsa bland … Continue reading Taiwan Food Street (台湾小吃街) – Xiamen, China
