Hai Tien Lo 24 Claypot Specialities Promotion–It’s back again!

[Media Invite]

Fans of Pan Pacific Hotel’s Hai Tien Lo Claypot dishes will be glad to know that the claypot promotion is back again, but only from now until 31 August 2018. The last time it was rolled out was in 2016, so don’t delay or you might have to wait another couple of years. This time round, you can choose any 2 claypot dishes for $38.80, a few dollars more expensive than back in 2016. It’s actually not a bad way to sample a variety of dishes that Hai Tien Lo has to offer, as compared to ordering from the usual menu.

Hai Tien Lo - Claypot Specialties

I had the opportunity to sample around 10 of the 24 claypot specialities, and I have to applaud Executive Chef Lai Tong Ping because I liked all of the dishes I tried. If I had to choose, I would say that the Claypot Pork Shoulder with Assorted Bell Peppers in Truffle Oil is probably my favourite. The pork shoulder cut has always been my go to cut when I cook myself, as it is meaty and very tender and I’m sure this was the reason why Chef Lai used this cut in the dish as well. Tender pork plus crisp bell peppers with just a touch of truffle oil, I could have finished the entire claypot myself.

Fullerton Hotel’s revamped Chocolate Buffet at The Courtyard

[Media Invite]

Are you a lover of chocolate? Or desserts? If you are, you will want to check out The Courtyard’s new and improved Chocolate Buffet. It’s not just any o spread of chocolate desserts, new elements have been added to up the excitement factor.

The Chocolate Buffet at The Courtyard

First up, the Chocolate Buffet now offers a small selection of savoury food. Hands up those of you who feel intimidated over the idea of having to plough through a ton of decadent chocolate? We all love chocolate of course, but as adults we also know there is a limit to how much of the same thing we can consume before we reach the dreaded “palate fatigue”. Now, you can take a break from the decadent chocolate items with savouries like Cocoa and Spice-rubbed Baby Pork Ribs or Salmon Mini Quiches. You could also treat it like a light dinner too, if you don’t want the inconvenience of having to separately eat dinner prior to the Chocolate Buffet.

For the serious chocolate lover, you won’t want to miss the Valrhona Tasting Table, where 12 varieties of chocolate in bite-sized coins of varying cocoa percentages are available so that you can savour the chocolate unadulterated.

There is even a made to order plated chocolate dessert at the Live Nitro Station. Here, liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the ingredients such as chocolate sponge, crumble, espuma and meringue, which will be hidden under a chocolate sphere for you to dramatically break open.

Oh, do not miss out on the Hot Chocolate Trolley because that’s what happened to me as it was hidden behind the Live Nitro Station! This is where you can create your own hot chocolate from 6 types of Valrhona chocolate and spices such as cardamom, chilli and anise.

And of course, the actual Chocolate Buffet spread of various desserts using chocolate in one way or another. Think cakes, macarons, tarts, shooters and the chocolate fountain. Scroll down to see more pictures of the spread and cute photos of the toddler stuffing his face with chocolate éclair.

Greenwood Fish Market opens at Valley Point

[Media Invite]

Greenwood Fish Market is going places! They have just opened a 2,700 sqft outlet in River Valley and this is on the back of a 4,100 sqft outlet at Quayside Isle Sentosa Cove opened in 2016. And guess what, they’re not stopping there either. A whopping 8,500 sqft outlet is set to be opened in Dempsey Hill by the end of this year, and finally one outlet in the East at Jewel Changi Airport come next year.

To think that this little seafood restaurant has stood the test of time, 10 plus years is a very good record for an F&B business in Singapore!  When I first visited back in 2007, it was so small I recall having to squeeze past numerous seafood refrigerators in order to access the main restaurant itself. But my boss at that time waxed lyrical about the place (and its $1 oysters on Tuesday) so we all wanted to go (and also because he was paying the bill).

I haven’t been back in years so it was good to be able to check out their new outlet at Valley Point Shopping Centre. The menu has obviously expanded over time and since I’m not the biggest of fish fans, I liked that is a wide selection of seafood dishes and meat dishes too. Fish lovers will obviously want to select a fish of choice and have it either pan seared, baked, steamed, chargrilled, battered or crumbed, and served together with vegetables and starch. Non-fish fans can go for seafood based pastas, burgers and even steaks.

Greenwood Fish Market - Chargrilled Mediterranean Squid $16 (1)

Chargrilled Mediterranean Squid with soba egg sauce $16.90

The small plates selection is worth looking at too and that’s where I felt like ordering everything. They have things like deep fried calamari, chargrilled Mediterranean squid, tuna poke bowl (why no salmon poke?), cold smoked salmon and swordfish carpaccio. Put 2 or 3 of these together and you have a meal sized dish! In fact, the chargrilled Mediterranean squid was so humongous, it could have been a meal on its own.
