Fukuichi – Great Japanese Dining



Deciding where to go for excellent Japanese food in Singapore used to be a daunting task. You can step into the Japanese Restaurants in 5 star hotels or higher, you can expect to pay exorbitant price. You go to normal shopping centre, you end up with some sushi franchise with a very standard quality. Fortunately in the past few years, there has been some Japanese restaurant popping up in Singapore providing excellent quality food with reasonable price.

MK Restaurant – Long Awaited Return



MK Restaurant is one of Little Devil's favourite restaurant. Every time we are in Thailand, it is a definitely-must to have one meal in MK. So when MK re-open its branch in Singapore, she has been pestering me to eat there. We were discouraged by the waiting time at first and following that, we have a few trips to Bangkok, so there is no urge to visit MK. This visit was also by coincidence when we need to do something at 313@Somerset.

This food review was based on invitation hosted by The Entertainer and Ah Hoi's Kitchen ('Ah Hoi') team, to celebrate their most recent collaboration.

The Entertainer - Media Invite




During our years in Melbourne, we already have a group makan buddies who will drive all over Victoria to have different type of cuisines. But just being students, we all have a budget limit until we came across a booklet that is full of food coupons that had many restaurants offering “Buy 1 get 1 Free”. This book actually help us in stretching our budget and had me start my food journey of tasting different cuisines. When I first came to Singapore, I was trying to find similar books that offer such opportunity to continue my food journey but it seems that Singapore has always been a bit slow in catching up with advertising/promotions methods that are used overseas. Yes, I really meant slow because after 10 years of wait, FINALLY someone have came out with this concept.

Xiang Man Lou (香满楼): Authentic Shanghainese Cuisine


Xiang Man Lou ('XML') is a tiny Shanghainese Restaurant located at Temple street squeeze between the Temple Inn and a slimming studio. You can be sure that you probably passed this restaurant a few times without taking notice of it. I certainly missed it when I try to locate it, not to mention the non-English or non Hanyu pinyi signboard. Yup, if you have not figured it out until today, now you know Chubby Botak Koala can't read Chinese :)

Chew Kee Eating House – Soya Sauce Chicken Noodle



Walking along Upper Cross Street in Chinatown, you will wonder if you are seeing double. Two shops selling Soya Sauce Chicken, with name close to each other, that you might think it was a spelling mistake during the naming of the shop. However, sibling rivalry are the theme here and we as the foodies in Singapore are to benefit for more option to have.
