Chinese New Year 2018– Golden Duck with 22-carat French Gold Flakes from Kam’s Roast

[Media Invite]

Kam's Roast - Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork

Prosperity Trio (Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork) – $108 (Takeaway only)

How about living it up this Chinese New Year by getting Kam’s Roast Golden Duck flecked with 22-carat edible French Gold Flakes? Kam’s Roast usual Roast Duck costs $66, but if you want the Golden Duck, it costs $88. OK I guess most people would go for the original Roast Duck to save $22, but the Golden Duck might actually be a good gift for your business clients if you had to get a CNY gift for them!

Chinese New Year 2018– Delicious CNY dishes from neighbourhood restaurant Gao Peng Cuisine!

[Media Invite]

One restaurant I am happy to recommend is this neighbourhood restaurant called Gao Peng Cuisine located in White Sands Mall at Pasir Ris, which I have been frequenting for the past 1 year whenever I visit the Pasir Ris Library or take Baby Edward for enrichment classes. I love the dim sum here, especially this dough fritter wrapped in cheong fun dish, which is only available until 5pm.

Gao Peng Cuisine also has another outlet at Junction 9 in Yishun. In fact, Gao Peng is owned by Gao Ji Food, which also owns House of Roasted Duck in Bugis Village and Sultan Plaza. Apparently, Gao Ji Food was started all the way back in 1954 when founder Mr Chong Seng Tong plied the streets of Chinatown with his wife on foot selling Hakka Yong Tow Foo. You know the famous Koo Kee Yong Tow Foo, my favourite Yong Tow Foo, it’s started by Mr Chong!! You can read more about Gao Ji Food here.

Gao Peng CNY 2018 Menu

History aside, I was happy to find out that Gao Peng Cuisine will be offering a Chinese New Year menu, and I was privileged to be invited to sample the menu before hand. Scroll down for pictures of the dishes we tried. Oh if there’s one thing you must order, it’s the Pencai from House of Roasted Duck. Most Pencai feature seafood ingredients, but because this Pencai from House of Roasted Duck, there’s roasted duck and roast pork included, which makes a refreshing change to the usual hotel pencais you see around. The roast meats also add to the flavour of the broth.

IZA | The Skewer Bar – Siglap Izakaya opens past midnight

[Media Invite]

Having lived in the East all my life, I’ve always wondered why something similar to Holland V isn’t available in the East. The Siglap area has always struck me as an area with very good potential, but after decades, it still hasn’t grown or changed much from what it was years ago and it still maintains its laid-back and quiet feel. There aren’t that many outlets open past midnight, so it doesn’t have the buzz that Holland V brings. But I suppose there’s some good in that too because it means it isn’t that crowded, crazy and pretentious?

But anyway, with the recent opening of IZA, a casual Izakaya bar nestled in the heart of Siglap, us living in the East have a new outlet to go to if we want to dine out late. IZA is open daily from 6pm – 1am, with last order of food at 12.30am. IZA has paired up with The Skewer Bar, which first opened an outlet in Geylang, to offer a mix of kushiyaki skewers as well as Japanese-inspired classic dishes. Japanese-inspired meaning the food is local, with Japanese elements to it. Or you could think of it as Japanese food that has been localised. Again, not a bad thing if you’re craving for Singaporean comfort food.

Prices are pretty affordable, especially if you go for the rice bowls and noodles, which cost around $7.90 – $12.90. Table treats, starters and skewers seem reasonably priced too. Not a bad place to go if you want drinks and a variety of bites.

Let me start off with the items I enjoyed the most during my tasting session. I actually enjoyed the rice bowl and noodles very much, even though the skewers are supposed to be the highlight.

Iza - Unagi Don

Unagi Don $12.90
