[Chinese New Year 2015] Antoinette’s Ang Moh Yu Sheng!

Chinese New Year 2015 reviews

I guarantee you, this will be the most intriguing Yu Sheng that you will see this year. No there ain’t heaps of lobsters, crabs, abalones, uni or other manner of seafood. In fact, this Yusheng has no raw fish in it! If this isn’t the most creative Yu Sheng for 2015, I don’t know what is! But to keep you in suspense, here’s a picture of some of Antoinette’s Chinese New Year goodies. You’ll have to go below the fold to see the picture of the Yu Sheng I’m talking about. Smile

[Chinese New Year 2015] Quayside Seafood Restaurant

Chinese New Year 2015 reviews

If you’re looking to celebrate Chinese New Year with a bit of a difference in terms of view and cuisine, you might just want to consider Quayside Seafood. Truth be told, I don’t think I’ve ever dined al-fresco style at Clarke Quay by the river before. I’ve wanted to many many times, but the restaurants were either full and I had to sit indoors, or I somehow ended up at a restaurant facing the inner fountain courtyard. So it was really pleasant to finally be able to experience dining al-fresco by the river, with a Chinese menu to boot! It was surprisingly cool and not humid at all.

There are tables for 10, and there are also booth seats for smaller parties. This is about as picturesque as it gets in Singapore!

Sumiya Charcoal Grill Izakaya at Orchard Central

A very Happy New Year 2015 to all my readers out there! Hope the countdown and celebrations have been a blast for you, and here’s to more great eats and good food finds in the coming year.

I had a pretty memorable December 31 myself, starting the day with a art jamming session with my colleagues followed by an impromptu lunch at Sumiya Charcoal Grill Izakaya with the Partner. My colleague happened to rave about her dinner at Sumiya. I thought I would check it out some time soon, but since our art jamming was in Dhoby Ghaut, no better day to check out Sumiya in Orchard Central than the day itself!

I was a little apprehensive at the cost, since my colleague said she spent $140 for 2 pax for dinner! But when she told me the number of dishes she’d ordered, each dish being about $15 – $20, that sounded a little more manageable. Well, turns out it was a great decision to visit Sumiya for lunch. They have these fantastic set lunches such as assorted tempura and sashimi, grilled eel etc going at very affordable prices.

Antoinette Restaurant – Not just for desserts

Inspired by the famous last queen of France, Marie Antoinette, and exuding the style and private ambience of Marie’s favorite hideaway chateau, the Petit Trianon in the gardens of Versailles, a visit to Antoinette Restaurant, Pâtissierie & Salon de Thé lets diners embrace the same French elegance. Antoinette Restaurant was conceived by Chef Pang Kok Keong, with the 1st outlet at 30 Penhas Road opened in June 2011,  a second at Mandarin Gallery opened 2 months later; and the third and largest at 3100 square feet, opened in 2012 at Palais Renaissance.

Many people think that Antoinette is just a place for desserts, cakes and sweet treats, and indeed, they do serve these (my favourite being the Nougatine crepe!), however, there’s a whole repertoire of French inspired main courses waiting to be sampled as well in their recently revamped menu. Now, you needn’t just come during tea time, or after dinner. Anytime of the day would be just as good! The following are some of the dishes I tried at Antoinette Restaurant a while back. Can’t wait to return again!

Parkland Green at East Coast Park (Now Open!)

With 8 F&B establishments, 2 sports retail stores and a laser tag arena, Parkland Green has finally opened at East Coast Park. If you find the location or name familiar, this is because this place used to be occupied by the former Parkland Golf Driving Range / Singa Inn.

As an Eastie, I have been watching the development grow with great interest, and now that it’s finally open, I couldn’t be more overjoyed. I have to say, Parkland Green is probably one of the few places in Singapore, where you can dine al-fresco (under cool shade) while enjoying the sea views and sea breeze, while your children play in front of you in the open lawns. I was there just last weekend, and it was heart-warming to see little kids running around blowing bubbles on the lawn.

Here are some pictures of the development and the outlets. Will progressively update this page with more photos and information so do stay tuned! 11 outlets in total, pictures start from the outlet nearest the sea, to the last outlet next to the underpass leading to near Marine Parade NTUC.

See the stairs on the right of the photo, that’s leading into the huge plunge pool they have right in their restaurant! The pool is not ready just yet (as of 25 Nov 2014), but I can’t wait to see it when it is filled with water and people!
