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!

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.

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.

Royal China London – Dim Sum just like in Singapore!

Finally starting on my UK posts. If you didn’t already know, I’ve just returned from my epic trip to the UK. Epic not just because of the duration and places covered (more on that in subsequent posts), but also the fact that I travelled together with my parents and the toddler, without my husband! The last time I did a road trip together with my parents was a decade ago! We were all fearing that we might throttle each other’s throats by the end of the trip, now that we are older and fussier. The husband did actually join us for half the trip, but he had to return to Singapore first.

Anyway, more on the epic trip itself later. For this post, I wanted to talk about our lovely dim sum lunch at Royal China Baker Street, on our first day in London. If Royal China sounds familiar to you, that’s because there used to be a Royal China at the world famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore. It closed a year or so ago to facilitate the refurbishment of the entire Raffles Hotel. It doesn’t seem to be in the line-up of restaurants opening at the soon to be opened Raffles Hotel, which is a real pity because Royal China was one of my favourite places to go for dim sum.

So I was really happy to have the opportunity to check out Royal China in London. There are actually several branches, each with a slightly different menu. We chose to visit the flagship one at Baker Street because of the extensive dim sum menu, although we would also have loved to check out the Canary Wharf branch with supposedly one of the best views for a Chinese restaurant in London.

New and unique dim sum dishes only for a short time at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Wan Hao Restaurant

[Media Invite]

Hands up those who looooove dim sum???? I did a poll recently and most people voted that dim sum is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I certainly could eat dim sum at any time of the day. But the thing is, most places these days stick to the tried and tested dim sum dishes, so it is quite exciting to be able to find something new when it comes to dim sum.

For a short time only, April to be exact, Wan Hao Restaurant at Marriot Hotel will be offering up some unique dim sum creations that are worth checking out.

Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant– Fabulous seafood dishes and still as good since my last visit

[Media Invite]

There is a new Chinese Executive Chef at Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant. Chef-Owner Yong Bing Ngen has promoted Chef Chee Hin Yew (who has worked at Majestic Restaurant for 16 years) to the role of Chinese Executive Chef. Chef Yong is keen to prove his mettle and based on what we sampled a couple of weeks back, I’m sure it won’t be very difficult.

I had good memories of Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant when I first visited back in 2012. A number of times I wanted to return to check out their dishes again but I some how never made it back. After the good experience from this recent food tasting, I’m very keen to bring my parents out for dim sum lunch soon. I would love for them to try the delicious seafood dishes we sampled, but I have to admit the prices are a little beyond budget for a casual weekend lunch. The dim sum dishes are however priced more affordably, similar to other chain Chinese restaurants at the malls.

Anyway, scroll down to see the dishes we sampled. It certainly looked as good as it tasted. If you feel the same way too, don’t forget to hint hint to your bosses for the next department dinner….

Edward at Majestic Bay Seafood Restaurant (4)

Edward got to partake in the food tasting as well. Poor Papa had to give up a good sized portion of his food to Edward because he simply loved it! Crabs, lobsters, fish, prawns, bring it on! Here’s Edward itching to get started on the yellow duckling bun! Who is cuter, Edward or the duckling?
