We had a quick cooking lesson prior to the start of the buffet where Peter demonstrated how to prepare the simple yet delicious snapper curry.

Anti:Dote Afternoon Tea at Fairmont Singapore

Every year, I face each impending birthday with mixed feelings. Certainly, birthdays can be joyful occasions, as they are one of the few occasions where people can indulge and celebrate, without feeling too guilty about it (not that I feel very guilty about indulging at any time of the year). But it’s the gloom of being yet another year older that I can’t seem to shake off. Does everyone feel that way too?

Anyway, as with all my birthday celebrations, I like to make it a prolonged event. Just like there are 12 days of Christmas and 15 days of Chinese New Year, why should a birthday be but a day long! I’ve ingrained this into the Partner’s mind, and made the corresponding input in his calendar as well. Smile

This year, I took leave on Friday so as to spend a quiet time over afternoon tea with the Partner. Being a food blogger, I gave him strict instructions for my birthday venue. It had to be an afternoon tea English style (as opposed to local or Peranakan), and the venue had to have a nice ambience. Most importantly, it had to be some place that I had never tried before. And given that I have tried a good many, it was a pretty tough task actually. But I am quite glad to say that the Partner did well by choosing Anti:Dote Bar at Fairmont Hotel Singapore.

AntiDote Afternoon Tea (20)

Anti:Dote Bar is situated at Fairmont Hotel’s lobby area, facing the driveway. At first glance, the place strikes you as being more bar and business than a place where ladies of leisure would dine at. In fact, the description on Fairmont’s website states it to be a stylish and modern cocktail bar serving drinks crafted with premium spirits and house made bitters, liqueurs and sodas. Wouldn’t strike you as a place to have good food, but we were pleasantly surprised. In fact, I also perused the dinner menu and I must say it looks promising. I do intend to return to check that out.

[Chinese New Year 2015] Sheraton Towers Li Bai Restaurant

Chinese New Year 2015 reviews

Li Bai Restaurant has always been ranked as one the highly recommended Chinese restaurants in Singapore be it for corporate dining or celebratory occasions. This year, they have tried to impress again with their array of exquisite dishes for Chinese New Year. Aside from familiar favourites such as Buddha Jumps over the Wall with 2-head abalone, or Salmon Lo Hei platter, there’s the new stewed “Eight Treasures” duck with 5-head Abalone that is not to be missed.

I had the pleasure of partaking in a tasting menu, sampling several dishes from the Li Bai Chinese New Year set menus. As with all Chinese New Year meals, the Yu Sheng platter is much anticipated, and a great way to break the ice! In recent years big name restaurants have been trying to outdo each other with bigger, more outlandish and more exquisite yu sheng!

This here was the salmon yu sheng lo hei platter topped with additional lobster. You can even opt to add crispy salmon fish skin or shredded abalone.

A very appealing and eye-catching display, wouldn’t you agree?

Brasserie Les Saveurs Restaurant Week Lunch 2014

Because I love St Regis Hotel so much, I decided to dine at TWO St Regis restaurants for Restaurant Week. Yes, TWO in the span of one week, or shall I say 5 days? But of course, this can only happen without robbing the bank, during Restaurant Week. If you haven’t heard of Restaurant Week, you should watch out for the next one in March 2015! And make sure you arm yourself with that American Express Platinum Credit Card to snag the early bird seats.

I must say I forgot to peruse the menu in my haste to secure my reservation for Brasserie Les Saveurs and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a buffet rather than the usual 3 course set meal. For $40++ for a lunch buffet at St Regis Hotel, is that a steal or what? It even comes with coffee or tea, something which most other Restaurant Week restaurants do not serve. The drink itself may be nothing to shout about, but I’ve always felt it necessary to end a nice meal with a hot cuppa, just to slow things down, enjoy the ambience and round off any remaining conversation.

This was what greeted us at the front entrance, the strategically placed dessert buffet counter. A strategic move, and well played if I may say so.

Whenever I go for buffets, I find myself going for multiple rounds at the cold cuts and salad sections rather than the main courses. Love all those tasty smoked meats and the refreshing zesty prawn or sashimi salads.
