Xu Jun Sheng (Long Ji) 许俊盛(隆记) @ Joo Chiat Road, Singapore

Heard about this famous teochew restaurant for some time and happened to be in the area today. (it is close to home but we have been too lazy to go there by foot and didn’t bother to do multiple bus change.)

It was late lunch hour so some of the dishes were already sold out.

Fried egg with silver fishIMG_5746

Chilled crab!!  Crab was very fresh, crab roe was delicious and for just $22!  I would prefer this over pepper crabs! IMG_5751


Dishes on our 2nd visit:

Boathouse @ Singapore

Nice comfortable restaurant and I considered kids friendly as they let us order food for kids from the bar menu which suits the kids just fine with pizza and snacks.IMG_5646 IMG_5648

We had the 4-course Chinese New Year special menu with wine pairing (though I found nothing Chinese apart from the piece of paper the menu printed on) – all seafood, all nicely done…just what we need during CNY, satisfying yet not too heavy…IMG_5655 IMG_5657 IMG_5658 IMG_5659 IMG_5662 IMG_5666

Glutinous Rice Cake 年糕

I didn’t plan to make it for Chinese New Year but the store bought ones were really too sweet for my kids and oddly that’s one of the very few dessert that she likes…

Thanks to the easy recipe from Christine’s Recipe, I made first ever 年糕.  photo

The texture is a bit different from what I am used to when I was young – hard when chilled, like a block of cheese.

This one is soft and chewy.IMG_5727

Texture still holds after frying, didn’t turn sticky.  And kids are both happy with it.IMG_5726

Group Therapy @ Katong V, Singapore

So glad Group Therapy opened a branch near home and within walking distance…a place where I can get my coffee fix and feed my kids.DM5 001 DM5 003DM5 003 DM5 004DM5 007DM5 008IMG_5586IMG_5588IMG_5534

kith @ Quayside Isle, Sentosa, Singapore
