Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant – 1 for 1 dim sum at $38++ (Eat all you can!)

Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant is having a super 1-for-1 dim sum all-you-can-eat deal where 2 diners can eat for the price of $38++. That’s $38++/2 per pax! The dishes in the menu include dim sum dishes, small plates, rice and noodle dishes as well as 1-time-order large platters. There are no further hidden charges unless you wish to order water ($3 per pot per table refillable) or tea ($3.50 per person refillable). I was a little apprehensive that they might ask us to pay for compulsory wet wipes or peanut/cold dish appetisers as Chinese restaurants often do, but they didn’t. Yay!

Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant Dimsum (17)

It was too good a deal to miss out so I made a booking immediately when I saw the ad. I’ve been to Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant several times over the years and enjoyed the food there. So I knew that this dim sum had to have a minimum standard. Went there today and it was the 1st time since the start of the circuit breaker that I have dined together with my parents!

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.

Tim Ho Wan - Sesame Balls with Molten Salted Egg $4 (2)

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.

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.
