Peach Garden Restaurant – Good Chinese food at 60% discount!

You know the Great Singapore Sale that happens every year during June and July, where lots of retail shops offer discounts to reel in shoppers? Well it’s happening now for the F&B sector thanks to the COVID-19 situation. Although the crowds have increased somewhat during the weekend, restaurants are still seeing low footfall on weekdays, in part due to the many work-at-home directives currently ongoing.

Peach Garden at Changi Airport T2 - Tofu with Broccoli

If you are not afraid to dine out, you can enjoy some great deals out there. One of the fantastic deals I enjoyed a couple of days ago was 50% discount on any ala-carte food orders at Peach Garden. They have outlets at Changi Airport T2, Chinatown Point, Hotel Miramar, NTU, OCBC Centre, The Metropolis and Thomson Plaza. We decided to go to Changi Airport due to proximity as well as Changi Airport’s own free 3 hour parking promotion for anyone who spends a minimum of $10. This free parking promo at Changi Airport is a real incentive to visit because parking is notoriously expensive at Changi Airport, although I cannot fathom why given they are always doing promos to entice Singaporeans to venture to the far east.

Peach Garden always has some sort of promotion going on, so it would be best to check their website to see what deals you can enjoy. For example, you can order their Signature Stewed Baby Lobster with Ee-fu Noodles for only $1.80++ (U.P $38) or get 30% off for dim sum on weekdays during lunch time. But, if you are able to dine at slightly off-peak timings, you can enjoy even higher discounts of 50% to 60%! This is only if you have the Eatigo App, which is completely free to download. Use my referral code http://refer.eatigo.com/365days-1v9 (365days) to download and you and I both can enjoy a $10 voucher each. Make sure you see that the referral code has been applied, or it means its not successful and you won’t get your voucher.

Chinese New Year 2020 : Best restaurants to go for great Yu Sheng

Now that the Christmas festivities are over, it’s time to change direction and start planning for Chinese New Year. And when it comes to all things Chinese, bigger is better! So here’s a list of where to go for the most decadent and luxurious Yu Sheng you can find in Singapore for your reunion dinners / lohei to help you HUAT BIG in the year of the Metal Rat!

Interestingly, unlike in previous years, not many restaurants are featuring the rat image in their Yu Sheng creations. Perhaps the rat does not lend itself well to being recreated in Yu Sheng form, unlike say a horse, a monkey or even the pig. However, if you scroll down, you will see that Fullerton Hotel has done a pretty nice rat version. Do you know of any other Rat Yu Shengs out there? Head on over to my Instagram Stories to vote if you’d like to have a depiction of the Rat in your Yu Sheng. After all, the Rat IS part of the Chinese Zodiac.

[CNY 2019] Yan Cantonese Cuisine

Signature Roast Crispy Suckling Pig $288 whole

You would have read from my feature article on Chinese New Year Yusheng that Yan Cantonese Cuisine serves up a pretty interesting yusheng. The Kaleidoscope of Prosperity Yusheng in “Shun De Style” is more savoury than your usual yusheng so if you don’t like the veggie/salad taste of yusheng, this yusheng from Yan is the one for you. The mountain of crispy fried vermicelli topped with gold leaves also makes a crackling sound (like firecrackers!) when drizzled with the yusheng dressing. Doubly unique!

Kaleidoscope of Prosperity $138

Kaleidoscope of Prosperity $138

I thought I should also feature some of Yan’s other dishes because they really are worthy of mention. Trust the Cantonese restaurants to be able to get their soups and roast meats right. Even if you visit after Chinese New Year, you definitely should try out their soups and roast meats. I have visited Yan Cantonese Cuisine a couple of times previously and the food here is consistently good.

PUTIEN–Not just noodle dishes

When I think of PUTIEN restaurant, I think of its Lor Mee, Heng Hwa Noodles and its Mazu Mee Sua. Those were the dishes I would head for whenever I visited its Vivocity outlet practically a decade ago. Back then, the PUTIEN outlet was located inside the Food Republic foodcourt! How the brand has grown because now they boast 53 outlets all over the world, including 12 in Singapore. And they have also bagged the Michelin One-Star Restaurant Award for 2016, 2018 and 2018.

Putien Popular Dishes

But PUTIEN offers more than just those noodle dishes I mentioned. They have all the sharing dishes that you would expect when you think of a Chinese restaurant. But of course, if you want to dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant without spending too much, those noodle dishes are only $9.80++. Scroll down to what were my favourite dishes from the PUTIEN media tasting.
