Peach Garden Restaurant – Good Chinese food at 60% discount!

You know the Great Singapore Sale that happens every year during June and July, where lots of retail shops offer discounts to reel in shoppers? Well it’s happening now for the F&B sector thanks to the COVID-19 situation. Although the crowds have increased somewhat during the weekend, restaurants are still seeing low footfall on weekdays, in part due to the many work-at-home directives currently ongoing.

Peach Garden at Changi Airport T2 - Tofu with Broccoli

If you are not afraid to dine out, you can enjoy some great deals out there. One of the fantastic deals I enjoyed a couple of days ago was 50% discount on any ala-carte food orders at Peach Garden. They have outlets at Changi Airport T2, Chinatown Point, Hotel Miramar, NTU, OCBC Centre, The Metropolis and Thomson Plaza. We decided to go to Changi Airport due to proximity as well as Changi Airport’s own free 3 hour parking promotion for anyone who spends a minimum of $10. This free parking promo at Changi Airport is a real incentive to visit because parking is notoriously expensive at Changi Airport, although I cannot fathom why given they are always doing promos to entice Singaporeans to venture to the far east.

Peach Garden always has some sort of promotion going on, so it would be best to check their website to see what deals you can enjoy. For example, you can order their Signature Stewed Baby Lobster with Ee-fu Noodles for only $1.80++ (U.P $38) or get 30% off for dim sum on weekdays during lunch time. But, if you are able to dine at slightly off-peak timings, you can enjoy even higher discounts of 50% to 60%! This is only if you have the Eatigo App, which is completely free to download. Use my referral code http://refer.eatigo.com/365days-1v9 (365days) to download and you and I both can enjoy a $10 voucher each. Make sure you see that the referral code has been applied, or it means its not successful and you won’t get your voucher.

Chinese New Year 2020 : Best restaurants to go for great Yu Sheng

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, it’s time to change direction and start planning for Chinese New Year. And when it comes to all things Chinese, bigger is better! So here’s a list of where to go for the most decadent and luxurious Yu Sheng you can find in Singapore for your reunion dinners / lohei to help you HUAT BIG in the year of the Metal Rat!

Interestingly, unlike in previous years, not many restaurants are featuring the rat image in their Yu Sheng creations. Perhaps the rat does not lend itself well to being recreated in Yu Sheng form, unlike say a horse, a monkey or even the pig. However, if you scroll down, you will see that Fullerton Hotel has done a pretty nice rat version. Do you know of any other Rat Yu Shengs out there? Head on over to my Instagram Stories to vote if you’d like to have a depiction of the Rat in your Yu Sheng. After all, the Rat IS part of the Chinese Zodiac.

Pixy Restaurant & Bar – Contemporary fusion French & Japanese cuisine that is a feast for the eyes and palate

Nestled in one of the shophouses along Mohamed Sultan Road is the unassuming Pixy Restaurant & Bar. The muted tones of the decor belie the creative and somewhat flamboyant fusion French & Japanese cuisine that is offered at Pixy. The restaurant is helmed by Chef Tomine Nobuaki (Nobu) who was born in Japan but grew up in San Francisco during his teenage and early adult years. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in the US, he worked in various restaurants such as Gary Danko (US), La Baie in Ritz Carlton Osaka and Luxury resort hotel Sankara in Yakushima before coming to Singapore and helming the fort at Pixy since January 2019.

We had the pleasure to partake in the $100 Omakase Autumn menu, which comprises of 5 dishes. Please scroll down to read more about the omakase. In particular, I would really like to highlight the Foie Gras Flan and Roasted Irish Duck Rouennaise, which are dishes I would not hesitate to try again if given the opportunity.

Teppan Kappou Kenji – Affordable Japanese food right in the heart of Tanjong Pagar

Great Japanese food is hardly synonymous with affordable prices, but recently I chanced upon a gem located in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, just a few minutes walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT station. This is a gem not just because the food here is fabulous, but that it’s price point allows you to actually feel comfortable visiting multiple times as opposed to it being for just special occasions.

For example, lunch sets start from $12.90, and includes chawan mushi. As far as I know, this is even cheaper than certain sushi chains in Singapore. For dinner, its entirely possible to order a dish and pair it with rice to form a complete meal for less than $20.
