Fengshui Inn Resorts World

*Media Invite*

It would be a wasted opportunity if one does not play a part in the Singapore 50 years of Nation building.  Same goes for Feng Shui Inn at Crockford Towers Hotel Resorts World Sentosa where you can enjoy their celebratory SG50 Dim Sum a-la-carte on Friday and Saturday 28th and 29th August. Chef Li Kwok Kwong, who hails from Hong Kong, has created a premium selection 42 dishes in Cantonese style just for your enjoyment.

It was great that I had the opportunity to sample a selection of the  42 dishes and did not regret making the trip down to the somewhat inaccessible Feng Shui Inn at Crockford Towers Hotel for this dining experience.

The restaurant wasted no time in bringing in the appetisers and the dish that hit you visually and aroused your sense of smell was the Crispy Fried bitter gourd with salted egg yolk. This dish alone set the mood right for the dining experience. Most dishes did not disappoint and were visually appealing to boot.

ME@OUE SG50 Menu

The Marina Bay area is blessed with many great restaurants with spectacular views and Me@OUE is definitely among the top, literally speaking. I’ve seen the bay from many different angles and thought I had seen everything. But the view from Me@OUE’s rooftop lounge and restaurant is great because it is at a comfortable height (not too high) which makes you feel like you are in the thick of the fireworks.

Jade Restaurant Fullerton Hotel Nostalgic Feasts

As a tribute to Singapore’s golden jubilee, Master Chef Leong Chee Yeng of The Fullerton Hotel’s Jade Restaurant is introducing his SG50 Nostalgic Feast Menu inspired by traditional Cantonese dishes from the ’70’s and ’80s. The menu is curated in partnership with Wong Ah Yoke, the highly respected restaurant reviewer and food critic at The Straits Times.

When you look at the pictures of the dishes below, you will undoubtedly be able to recognise elements of yesteryear which we did not even realise have quietly disappeared with time’s passing. For example, when was the last time you saw coloured rimmed keropok adorning a banquet dish?

Wong Ah Yoke chose dishes that he used to eat as a youngster growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, where the dishes were served only at banquets and special occasions. For example, Roast Chicken or Chinese Eight Treasures Duck was served mainly at weddings or birthday banquets. Roast Chicken I believe I’ve seen served over the years, but I don’t recall 8 Treasures Duck at all! Do you?

Group Shot- Double boiled winter melon soup, Roast Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken with Cashew Nuts served in Buddha's Bowl, Pork King Ribs

Of course, this being Jade Restaurant at the Fullerton Hotel, all the dishes are jazzed up and presented exquisitely.

Get your fill of Shizuoka products from Cold Storage

Shizuoka Prefecture is the home of Mount Fuji, so if you’re reminiscing your recent holiday trip to Japan, you might just want to relive the food memories by making a trip to Cold Storage!

The pristine and rich waters of Mt. Fuji play a crucial role in the agriculture of that area and yield some of Japan’s best harvests including green teas, wasabi; and the most luxurious fresh fruit such as musk melons and grapes. This pure mountain water also flows into the Suruga Wan (Suruga Bay) which is well-known for some of Japan’s best seafood and seaweed.

Here are some interesting items I spotted…

$79 Shizuoka melon.This had better be one damn good tasting melon! The one vein and one fruit growth method is used to optimise nutrition and ensure the fruit is of the highest quality. Refrigerate 3 to 5 hours before eating to bring out the best flavour of the melon.
