Have been wanting to try their nasi lemak for the longest time, and I finally did that recently!

I had their Ayam Goreng Berempah Chicken Leg Nasi Lemak, and it was so good! From the well-marinated, juicy and tender spiced fried chicken, to the aromatic fluffy rice, and the sambal which was sweet but packed a fiery punch, everything was on point! The fried egg (which is their new add-on menu item) upped the satisfaction even further! Even though this was ordered via delivery, the quality was still apparent!


Thinking of having something different for the festive season this year? Check out Rempapa’s festive offerings, with Chef Damian D’Silva’s renditions of classic British dishes but with Singapore heritage flavours that are available for dine-in and takeaway from 15-31 December 2022. I had a chance to taste these dishes beforehand and I must say they were all very delicious!

The Roast GG French Poulet with Rempapa Spices ($90, 1.3kg) is first brined in a blend of spices for 24 hours then stuffed with herbs and aromatics like pandan leaves, fresh bay leaves and lemongrass before the chicken goes into the roaster. The whole chicken was so well-marinated, tender and juicy (even the breast meat)!

Next, the Spiced Meatloaf with Sambal Mashed Potatoes ($90, 1.2kg) is made with pork and cooked with nutmeg and curry powder. The mash is mixed in with a sambal before it is piped over the meat and baked to finish. If you like your flavours heavy with a savoury touch, you will definitely enjoy this dish like I did!

To complement the mains is Rempapa’s version of Bubble & Squeak with roasted pork, brussels sprouts and onions, all cooked in a sauce of black bean, matured black vinegar, light soy, pepper and shallot oil! This was so moreish, with all the different flavours combining harmoniously! Goes super well with rice!

Finally, there is the Spotted Dick with Gula Melaka Custard ($35, 500g), a traditional steamed pudding that contains beef tallow, brandy-soaked currants, orange and lemon zest, served with creme anglaise sweetened with gula melaka. An indulgent and sweet end to the meal!

These dishes are available for takeaway (except the Bubble & Squeak), while all four festive dishes are also available as a Festive Platter ($120) for dine-in guests, which will be portioned for four pax. Orders must be placed 3 days in advance.

Mid-Autumn Festival is fast approaching, and if you’re thinking of which mooncakes to get, I’d strongly recommend the ones from Hai Tien Lo!

Featured here is the Four Treasure Snowskin Mooncakes, which includes (clockwise from top left):

~Peppermint Paste w/ Chamomile Truffle (my favourite one among the four; the combination of cooling mint flavour and sweetness from chamomile encased within the white chocolate truffle is so good!)

~Rose Lychee (floral and refreshing!)

~Hazelnut Chocolate w/ Matcha (nice combination of nuttiness and earthiness!)

~White Lotus Paste w/ Salted Egg Yolk (classic taste that won’t go wrong!)

These snowskin mooncakes come in a classic mooncake box featuring ruby red leatherette finish, oriental floral motifs and gold clasp enclosure; definitely makes for good gifting! Other mooncake selections include Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin, as well as baked classics.

From now till 10 Sept 2022, members of Pan Pacific Privileges and Pan Pacific DISCOVERY get to enjoy exclusive privileges on their mooncake selections. Selected credit card holders will also enjoy exclusive discounts from now till 31 July 2022. Visit https://panpacificsingapore.oddle.me/en_SG for more info.

~Lacto-Fermented Pineapple Galette

~Hae Bee Hiam Laminated Donut Roll
~Sweet Potato & Yuzu Brioche Bun

As usual, their pastries did not disappoint and the standouts for us are the Lacto-Fermented Pineapple Galette (Truly an elevated pineapple tart! The creme fraiche helped to cut the tartness of the pineapple!), Hae Bee Hiam Laminated Donut Roll (So rich and savoury, the Hae Bee Hiam Cream Cheese Custard is the star of this pastry!) and the Chrysanthemum & Pear Custard Flan (Subtle floral flavours from the pear & chrysanthemum! Was expecting it to be jelak but it wasn’t!).

We tried the Truffle Yu Sheng from Hotel Fort Canning yesterday and we really enjoyed it! We loved the addition of truffle to the traditional yu sheng, which added dynamism to its flavour profile with its earthy aroma. It created such an umami bomb when combined with everything else that left us wanting more! And instead of just the usual crackers, this one comes with deep fried enoki mushrooms and fried fish sticks for a satisfying crunch. It’s a great yu sheng to get for truffle lovers and foodies alike!

This unique yu sheng comes in two sizes, a perfect fit for both small and large families. The smaller variant can feed 4 to 7 pax while the larger variant can feed 10 to 12 pax. Available for order from now to 13 Feb 2022, at $68+/$88+. You can order and check out all their CNY offerings via this link: https://linktr.ee/HFCFestives.

Calling all fried chicken wings lovers! A new halal-certified fried chicken joint Wicked Wings has just launched, with a whopping selection of 11 different unique flavours to choose from! The new virtual brand concept highlights scrumptious Asian flavours such as chilli crab, salted egg, Sichuan mala, and rojak. Each order offers the option of six pieces of chicken mid-joints & drumettes or eight pieces of boneless chicken breast strips, complemented with sides and drinks.

I tried the SC Power (mid-joints & drumettes) and Sweet Sensations (boneless chicken strips). The former packed a piquant mala punch while the latter (a take on the Javanese dish ayam kecap manis) was sweet and savoury! I also had Truffle Fries and Calamari for my sides.

PROMO: From now to 16 Jan 2022, catch the wings at an exclusive launch offer of $20 for two orders of chicken wings or strips. Conveniently available via pick-up and islandwide delivery on GrabFood, Foodpanda and Deliveroo. Promotion is applicable on all flavours.

My family and I enjoyed the Christmas Family Meal from Kenny Rogers Roasters yesterday! The Christmas Family Meal (4-6pax) @ $99.00 includes:

~1x Rotisserie Roasted Whole Chicken w/ choice of Black Pepper / Brown Sauce and Cranberry Sauce
~Sausage Platter
~Truffle Cream Pasta
~6x Corn Muffin
~Potato Salad
~1 Bottle Coke (1.5L)

Their signature Rotisserie Roasted Chicken is succulent and really well-seasoned, and I personally liked having the Black Pepper Sauce to go along with the chicken! The Truffle Cream Pasta was surprising really creamy and their corn muffins are always a good side to have! Will give a special mention to the other 2 sides (Potato Salad & Coleslaw) too, we really enjoyed having them alongside the mains! Safe to say, we were all belly-satisfied at the end of the meal!

They have a Christmas Family Feast too, that serves 8-10 pax for larger group gatherings at home (PSA: you can have max. 5 guests in your home as per current restrictions).

Get in the mood for Xmas with these Festive Bon Bons from Mr Bucket Chocolaterie, featuring 6 new flavours that are ripe for the season:

~Peppermint Cookie
~Spiced Pear Hazelnut
~Rosemary Honey
~Coffee Caramel Whisky
~Cassis Chestnut Rum
~Fig & Wine

My favourites were the Peppermint Cookie, Spiced Pear Hazelnut and Fig & Wine. For the Peppermint Cookie, it reminded me of After 8 chocolate mints and the minty flavour did not overpower the white chocolate taste. For the Spiced Pear Hazelnut, the warmth of the spices really paired well with the sweetness of the pear and the hazelnut praline added a nutty crunch to the bon bon. Finally, for Fig & Wine, you can really taste the red wine in the chocolate ganache. I felt that it brought out the honey notes of the fig jam well!
