On Saturday afternoon, Mummy and I paid a visit to Chip Bee Garden. Unfortunately it was pouring which ruined our plans of having an al-fresco lunch. We decided to eat at Da Paolo Pizza Bar only because it was right in front of us and I was too hungry to venture further. We lucked out for […]
Opus Bar & Grill is a relatively new Steakhouse that opened in 2015 and is located in Hilton Hotel on Orchard Road. I went with my dear friends last night for dinner because: (a) there was a 15-20% credit card discount for Citibank Credit Cards; (b) 50% off bottles of wine (free-flow on Sundays to […]
Hong Kong’s legendary Egg Tarts specialist, Tai Cheong Bakery, has once again set up a Pop Up shop in Takashimaya Food Hall (B2). Just like that, cheese tarts was so yesterday and egg tarts from Hong Kong is the food to grab now. Yours truly suffered from a repeated case of Fear of Missing Out when I saw these food bloggers holding the tarts in their hands yesterday. Thanks to LaborMe, this afternoon some Tai Cheong Egg Tarts and Chicken Pie were delivered straight to my office in the East. I really can’t be bothered to go down and queue.
The Egg Tarts and Chicken Pies arrived piping hot. At $1.90 each for the egg tarts ($7.60 for 4) and $2.80 for the chicken pies, these were much cheaper than Bake Cheese tarts and well worth it! Best part: they are best eaten at room temperature because that’s when the butteriness of the crusts really comes through and shines.
The crust of Tai Cheong’s egg tarts is not the flakey sort but rather a solid one. Its’ sturdy, biscuit-like nature held up the smooth egg-y custard so well! Strangely, I preferred this when at room temperature. Warn you ah, very addictive! My colleagues gobbled down two in one shot.
The Chicken Pie consisted of this extremely-buttery short-crust pastry and an equally flavoursome and creamy chicken filling. It reminded me of a much less soup-y version of chicken pot pie. The pastry was soo buttery, so crumbly, it was falling all over me. Love it.
Can’t wait for this to open permanently.

I love food a lot but to queue at least an hour for it, maybe not. When I read Bake Cheese Tarts were arriving on our damn-humid and sunny shores, like many, super excited! Just like that, we moved on from the Salted Egg Lava Croissants. Guys, seriously, I cannot recall ever experiencing this food […]
I have a hilarious story about Bedrock Bar & Grill. Last night’s visit makes it my twelveth. I have been to this steakhouse 12 times! In my whole life, of course. Not in a span of one or two years. Having said that I visited the first 11 times years ago (like 2010) and only […]
Last Sunday, my family eschewed from our usual Sushi Tei/ Silk Dim Sum and headed to Kith Café @ Millenia Walk for lunch. Kith Cafe has been around for years but I always relegated it to just another brunch spot and never took it seriously. Until a dinner function last Thursday held in Kith where […]
I always thought I was the diehard foodie as poorly-executed and poor-tasting dishes usually put me in a foul mood. However a visit to Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chophouse last Saturday may have completely changed me for I had underwhelming experience with the food but the interior was so gorgeous, I have refused to strike Luke’s off my go-to […]
