Fratelli Pizzeria and Trattoria – Watch 2-time pizza acrobatics champion Pasqualino Barbasso in action!

When you think of juggling acrobats, you usually think of the ones in a circus juggling hoops or pins or even lighted torches. But have you heard of people who juggle pizzas, specifically pizza dough? It’s quite a sight to be hold actually.

From now until 9 March 2019, catch two-time Pizza Acrobatics World Champion Pizzaiolo (pizza maker) Pasqualino Barbasso at Fratelli Pizzeria at Hotel Michael in Resorts World Sentosa. This Sicily-born chef has been showcasing his gravity-defying dough-spinning stunts all around the world. But being a Pizzaiolo, he can also produce delicious Italian pizzas as well.

Catch him in action at the following timings! Scroll to the bottom of this post for a sneak peek video of Pasqualino Barbasso in action! And if you want to learn from the master himself, there is a pizza making workshop on 6 March. Please call +65 6577 6688 to register for a slot.

[CNY 2019] Yan Cantonese Cuisine

Signature Roast Crispy Suckling Pig $288 whole

You would have read from my feature article on Chinese New Year Yusheng that Yan Cantonese Cuisine serves up a pretty interesting yusheng. The Kaleidoscope of Prosperity Yusheng in “Shun De Style” is more savoury than your usual yusheng so if you don’t like the veggie/salad taste of yusheng, this yusheng from Yan is the one for you. The mountain of crispy fried vermicelli topped with gold leaves also makes a crackling sound (like firecrackers!) when drizzled with the yusheng dressing. Doubly unique!

Kaleidoscope of Prosperity $138

I thought I should also feature some of Yan’s other dishes because they really are worthy of mention. Trust the Cantonese restaurants to be able to get their soups and roast meats right. Even if you visit after Chinese New Year, you definitely should try out their soups and roast meats. I have visited Yan Cantonese Cuisine a couple of times previously and the food here is consistently good.

[CNY 2019] Eight colourful and auspicious Yu Sheng platters to try this Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year 2019 is but one week away! Have you completed all your CNY shopping and other CNY errands? One Chinese New Year tradition that must not be missed is the tossing of yusheng with family, friends and colleagues, aka lohei! The Chinese believe this is a very auspicious way to welcome the new year. Even if you are not a believer, it cannot be denied that this is a very fun activity to participate in, be you young or old. The aim is to toss it high while still keeping it within the platter! Check out my video at the end of this post to see how toddler Edward reacted to his first lohei! Priceless!

Anyway, here are 8 places where you can get yusheng in Singapore. Bonus one at the back too! Huat Ah!!!

[CNY 2019] Many must-try dishes from Marriott’s Wan Hao Restaurant this year

Wan Hao Marriott Chinese New Year Menu - Imperial Pot of Prosperity Pen Cai

It can be hard to decide on the the best hotel venue or restaurant to have your Chinese New Year reunion dinner, especially when all of these F&B establishments are pulling out all the stops to get your attention and they all end up looking very similar. After tasting quite a number of Chinese New Year menus, I am glad to report that Wan Hao Restaurant from Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel at Orchard Road offers up one of the best CNY menus this year. Scroll down to see some of the highlights from the Marriott buffet as well as ala-carte and set menus.

In particular, two dishes incorporating almond had me in awe and finishing up every last drop, when for decades I have avoided any Chinese dishes with almond stock/milk/cream under the assumption that I did not like it. More on that if you scroll down further.
