When was the last time you visited Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao? If you haven’t been in recent times, now’s a great time to revisit as the Michelin one starred restaurant popular for its Northern Chinese specialities has recently refreshed its all-day dining menu.

My family and I had the pleasure of checking out their new menu recently. Here’s what we tried and our take on it.

Sushiro, Japan’s largest conveyor belt sushi chain opens at Tiong Bahru Plaza – Cheap sushi anyone?

[Media Invite]

If you haven’t already heard, Sushiro, Japan’s largest kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi chain has just opened its maiden outlet in Singapore at Tiong Bahru Plaza on Monday 19 August. This is exciting news because Sushiro is immensely popular in Japan, serving over 149 million customers in Japan alone, or how about 1.36 billion plates of sushi per year? I hear there are long queues already, in part thanks to opening specials. Better hurry down if you want to enjoy things like sea urchin sushi for only $4.80 for 2 pcs!

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.

Tim Ho Wan – Revamped menu and a new outlet in Punggol Waterway Point

[Media Invite]

After a change in management, Tim Ho Wan has gone through a menu revamp. I am glad to report that you can now expect many new creations as well as improved classics. Tim Ho Wan is also on another expansion plan. The latest outlet to open is the 11th outlet in Punggol Waterway Point, which would be most convenient for people living in the far north as there is no other Tim Ho Wan outlet nearby.

The last time I visited Tim Ho Wan was in late 2013. Since then, a number of outlets have opened and closed, such as the ones at Toa Payoh, Aperia Mall and Bedok Mall. To be frank, the food then did not impress me. It just didn’t strike me as Michelin quality, and certainly not worth the 1 to 2 hour queues then. There were some hits, but there were numerous misses too. Thankfully, I think with this current menu revamp, there are now more dishes worthy of trying. And with numerous outlets dotted over the Singapore, the queues aren’t as scary anymore. Scroll down to see which dishes I thought were great, and those that were not so. These were all tried at the new Punggol Waterway Point outlet.
