Paradise Group Imperial Snowskin Mooncakes

*Invited Tasting*

While we’re all in the mooncake mood, here’s more mooncakes I tried from the Paradise Group.

Paradise Group Imperial Snowskin Mooncakes

Press Release:-

This year, Paradise Group has created a range of new mini snowskin mooncakes that are infused with delicate Oriental flavours which might once be enjoyed by Imperial courts in the ancient times. These colourful mini snowskin jewels are intricately handcrafted and come in four exquisite flavours such as Hakka Lei Cha in Pandan Snowskin that bears a distinctive nutty character and mild green tea-like sweetness, balanced with an aromatic pandan fragrance. There are also floral-tinged innovations like the Rose with Purple Glutinous Rice in Yam Snowskin, and Sweet Osmanthus in Osmanthus Snowskin. Those looking for a revitalising choice will be intrigued with the Red Dates with Wolfberries in Strawberry Snowskin mooncakes that leave a lingering sweet and fruity taste. Befitting royalty are the perpetual favourites of Imperial Mao Shan Wang Durian in Mango Snowskin mooncakes that are made with the highest grade of durian and encased within a smooth mango-scented snowskin.

These are packed in elegantly designed Chinese Imperial premium boxes that take inspiration from the current Year of The Dragon. Pricing as follows: –

Greenwich V

*Media Invite*

If you have been following my blog, by now you should have known about the newest mall in Singapore, the Greenwich V. It is a small little mall, only 2 storeys high, located in the Seletar / Jalan Kayu area. About half of the establishments are eateries while the other half comprises the “daily living” type of stores such as Laundromat, supermarket, video rental and even an English language school. BTW, Greenwich is pronounced as GREN – NICH, same as the Greenwich of Greenwich Mean Time.

When I first learnt of the existence of Greenwich V, and this was before any official media invite, my immediate reaction was “What a quaint little mall”! I want to get a condo apartment right above Greenwich V!!!! I was so attracted to it that the next day, which was Chinese New Year DAY ONE(!!), I took my parents to Greenwich V for a cup of tea and cakes at Toastbox! I even grabbed a brochure on the condo, but sanity prevailed eventually as Greenwich V is just way too far from my parents place in the Eastern part of Singapore.

Surprise surprise, a few weeks later Greenwich V “came to me” via an OMY blogger’s invite to check out Greenwich V via an Amazing Race style competition. 15 bloggers were selected for the competition, and divided into 3 groups. I was part of the Urban Team, along with bloggers Jesslyn, Grace, Melvin and Hazel, with Janet from OMY to ensure that we did not cheat (as if we would ever…).

The Urban Team! The Urban Team : Grace, Hazel, Jesslyn, Myself and Melvin!

Our task was to guess the answers to 10 questions, which would then lead us to 10 respective Greenwich V outlets. We would then have to complete the challenge by either Eating, Learning or Doing. It really was a great way to learn more about the mall even if we had to rush rush and rush!

These were the outlets we visited:-

1st – Empire State

2nd – Cinta Manis

3rd – Hockhua Tonic

4th – Mai Thai Restaurant

5th – Paradise Inn

6th – Berrylite

7th – VideoEzy

8th – Toastbox

9th – Cedele

10th – Rosabelle Launderette

11th – Phoenix Medical Group

For my reviews on Mai Thai Restaurant, Paradise Inn and ToastBox, click on the respective links. You can also read more about the other outlets, which my team members have written about here. Or you can check out Greenwich V’s Facebook and Website. Check out our crazy Amazing Race day video on Youtube!

Alas, we didn’t manage to win the Amazing Bloggers Race competition. I thought the photos we submitted were of top quality (click on Urban Team!). Oh well, next time then. To my fellow Urban team members, we did our best and we have no regrets!!!

* Thanks Far East Organization / Greenwich V and OMY for the wonderful afternoon and great hospitality!

Paradise Inn at Greenwich V

*Media Invite*

I had the most amazing time at the newly opened Greenwich Village in the Seletar area last Saturday. Remember that I mentioned being attracted to the quiet yet relaxing looking Greenwich V during the Chinese New Year period? As luck would have it, I had the opportunity to visit Greenwich Village again as part of a Bloggers event organised by OMY.

Us bloggers were divided into 3 teams and tasked to visit TEN eateries/shops in the span of 2.5 hrs. It was an “Amazing Race” Blogger style! Paradise Inn was one of the pit stops, and I was glad to be able to glide into the sereneness of Paradise Inn to escape the excitement going on outside. We only tried out several signature dishes as we had other places to visit. It was a pity we only had 20 minutes to wolf down the food because I sure would have loved to spend more time here!

Paradise Inn - Fried rice with prawns and roe (2)

Fried rice with diced prawns and fish roe. The fried rice was palatable and didn’t taste oily at all. The striking orangey red eggs dotted all over the rice made the dish look so appetising. The prawns were pretty succulent. Wish there were more egg though (the chicken ones).

Paradise Inn - Salted Egg yolk Prawns

One of my favourite Chinese restaurant dishes of all time, Prawns covered with Salted Egg Yolk! So sinful but OH SO GOOD. When the salty goodness of the salted egg lands on your tongue, time is suspended and you feel a sudden rush of high as the egg and prawn suddenly melts in your mouth and disappears way too quickly down your throat.

Paradise Inn - Fried rice with prawns and a piece of salted egg yolk prawn

I had time to try the Salted Egg Prawns with the Fried Rice and it was a good combination!

Paradise Inn - sweet and sour chicken

Can’t remember the name of this dish but I recall someone mentioning that this was an interesting take on the sweet and sour pork but using chicken instead, specifically chicken wings. The sweet caramelised flavour was tasty and the addition of the curry leaves was a nice touch. I did find the dish to be too oily but those who love chicken wings would appreciate this dish more.

Paradise Inn - veggies

Stir fried veggies with lots of garlic. After the more hearty dishes, I was glad to be able to down a few greens. The vegetables were deliciously flavourful and had a firm bite. Another good dish to order to go with the fried rice.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei

Some photos I took of the Bedok Point Sushi Tei. I have heard that the Sushi Tei standards vary from branch to branch. I’m glad to report that the Sushi Tei at Bedok Point Mall is quite good! I hope they didn’t just assign their best chefs for the opening.

It’s great that there is a Sushi Tei so close to where I live now. I’ve always thought that Sushi Tei offers up very affordable yet tasty and fresh sushi and sashimi. How do they keep their costs down? Used to dine at Sushi Tei really often when I worked in the City Hall area. Some say, the City Hall Sushi Tei branch has the best chefs.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei

Full house at 7pm on a weekday

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Prawn sushi roll

Prawn roll – One of the more sinful dishes at Sushi Tei since the prawn is deep fried, and all that fish eggs.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Salmon Belly Miso Soup

Salmon Belly Miso Soup $10 – I like to take the salmon out so it is still half raw. Once again, with some steamed rice, this becomes a substantial meal.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Crabstick and Avocado Salad

The salads at Sushi Tei are quite nice in their own right. Although the vegetables are mostly cheap looking lettuce, I like the fact that you can eat this with some steamed rice, and it becomes a filling and satisfying meal.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Chawan Mushi

Chawan Mushi – If there’s one thing I must have at any Japanese restaurant, that’s Chawan Mushi, also known as egg custard.

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Edamame Beans

Edamame beans are good for health but are quite pricy! This bowl of beans cost $4!

Bedok Point Sushi Tei Green Tea Ice CreamBedok Point Sushi Tei Green Tea Ice Cream (2)

This green tea ice cream was so good, I just had to order another helping! I’ve always thought that I wouldn’t fancy green tea ice cream, but I am now a strong convert! It’s an additional dollar or 2 for the adzuki beans.

Bedok Point Paradise Inn

I thought the sign looked quite nice so I took a picture of it!

Bedok Point Ayam Penyet

Ayam Penyet Ria. There are quite a number of speciality chicken restaurants here. There’s a chicken hot pot restaurant and a chicken rice restaurant both on the 2nd level.

Will post pictures of Kung Fu Paradise soon. Kung Fu Paradise is part of the Paradise group, and is targeted towards the young! Am I too old to dine there?? The staff were all practically just out of their teens and I did not spot a single person there over 30 years of age.
