Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan – Jumbo’s Pao Fan concept comes to Simpang Bedok!

Pao Fan / 泡饭 has been the buzzword in the dining scene these days and Easties will be glad that they have yet another Pao Fan option to choose from. Chao Ting Teochew Pao Fan recently opened its second outlet at Simpang Bedok. Chao Ting is one of Jumbo Group’s latest concepts, having opened Chao Ting only in June 2019 as a simple stall in Far East Square.

The Chao Ting stall at Simpang Bedok is even simpler looking as it resides within a bigger outlet called Lao Lim Kaya Toast, which happens to be opened by the Lao Lim Mee Pok next door (original one being in Jalan Tua Kong). You can actually sit at either outlet and order from both.

Meidi-Ya opens at Millenia Walk – 5 things to look out for!

Fans of Meidi-Ya, the premium Japanese supermarket chain can now rejoice at it’s newest and largest 2-storey flagship store at Millenia Walk (24,000 sqft) that will be officially opening on 25 November 2020. The bakery, food hall and wine & liquor store is on Level 1, while the supermarket is on Level 2. The supermarket offers fresh Japanese fruits, vegetables, and meat, that is air flown directly from Japan thrice a week and shipped by sea once a week.

This is their most convenient outlet yet, being located in the heart of town, and just outside Promenade MRT Station. And just for this opening weekend (28th and 29th Nov), there will be free parking for everyone who visits Millenia Walk, no minimum spending required, just drive in!

Meidi-Ya also has another outlet at Great World City but that is much smaller. I know many were saddened when Meidi-Ya closed its decades old store at Liang Court. But the Liang Court outlet, even if more spacious, was a pain to get to, especially prior to the opening of the Fort Canning MRT Station a couple of years back.

Here are 5 interesting highlights you need to look out for:

HJH Maimunah Restaurant opens new mini outlet at Tampines Mall Food Court

The famous HJH Maimunah has opened a halal food court stall at Tampines Mall. It’s called HJH Maimunah Mini, but it’s anything but mini if you compare to the neigbouring stalls. In fact, it takes up two stalls side by side, one selling Nasi padang cooked dishes, the other selling things like Tauhu Goreng and snacks. Opened just last week, it is already seeing long queues.

Just in case you didn’t already know, HJH Maimunah was started in 1992 by Madam Mahiran Abdul Rahman with recipes from her late mother. The first and flagship 2 storey restaurant is at 11 Jalan Pisang, but they have since expanded to another outlet at Joo Chiat and since last week, the food court outlet at Tampines Mall. They also have a large catering arm.

In 2019, HJH Maimunah received the Michelin Bib Gourmand award.

At the Kampung Glam area, the two famous Nasi Padang outlets are Minang and HJH Maimunah. I’ve visited Minang at least 10 times throughout the years and loved the food there for its robust and flavoursome taste. I’ve only been to HJH Maimunah once, around 5 years ago, but felt that the food was just average and hence was not compelled to return again.

Cake Delivery Singapore – Get a cake at 12 midnight?!

Cake Delivery Singapore contacted me awhile back to ask me if I would like to try their cakes. I scrolled through their website and was instantly intrigued by the Build Your Own Cake concept. No it’s not a cake that you assemble yourself, although that would be interesting and fun too.

Build Your Own Cake is a cake where instead of choosing just 1 flavour, you can actually cobble together 10 – 12 different flavours. If you get the 8 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 10 slices. If you get the 9.5 inch cake, you get to choose the flavours for 12 slices.

Thank Goodness It’s Seafood – Nasi Ulam jazzed up!

This is my second time collaborating with the Thank-Goodness-It’s (TGI) concept where they present a different culinary concept every couple of months. After the previous rendition which was Nasi Lemak, this time round, It’s Nasi Ulam 2.0. This is the brainchild of Gastrogig, and they have yet again tied up with Chef Shen Tan who is famous for her twice-steamed Nasi Lemak and sambals.

Makan for 4 set – $108

Now the first thing that always comes to mind is why pay so much more for something that you could get for cheaper at the hawker centre or some casual eatery. The thing is, if you already have a favourite Nasi Ulam eatery that you always patronise, and you just want something similar, then you’ll find it difficult to justify paying a premium.
