Wang Dae Bak @ Cross Street, CBD, Singapore 


the restaurant is located at one end of China Square and was rather quiet at 7pm on a week night. It is nothing like those Korean bbq restaurant you see at the malls. And it is bbq with charcoal. 

   
    Beef ribs and pork chop – good meat and the marinade was not overwhelming. 

The yellow liquid around the grill is egg and is free flow. I love it when they are half cooked.   
Kimchi pancake – slightly spicy, crispy when hot    
Spicy seafood and tofu soup  

By the time we left the restaurant, it was almost full. We are going to come back with the kids soon! 

Palm Beach Seafood 棕櫚灘海鮮 @ One Fullerton, Singapore


We usually avoid restaurants at main attraction points but we have been told that this place is good though price on the higher end.  It turned out that food was good, location excellent – this will be one of the place we can take visitors to.

Deep fried yo tau with fish paste – almost all seafood restaurants have this dish but in my opinion, this was the best out of all the ones I have had.

Supertree @ Gardens by The Bay, Singapore


We finally went to the Supertree at night! IMG_0534 IMG_0544 IMG_0596 Magnificent trees.  A lot of people lay on the floor to enjoy the view.IMG_0601 IMG_0602 We also tried Hill Street Coffee Shop @ Supertree Dining…very nice local food.  This would be one of the spot we can take our visitors. IMG_0548 IMG_0547Very well done salted fish fried rice IMG_0550 Laksa was good.  Satay portion very generous.IMG_0551 IMG_0552 IMG_0553 I asked for less sugar and they were so kind to serve condensed milk and evaporated milk separately.

Pollen @ Gardens by the Bay, Singapore


The Pollen experience starts from the buggy ride from the Gardens by the Bay main gate…IMG_9069 IMG_9068The buggy will take you right to the restaurant main entrance which on one side of the flower dome…on the way pass by the Singapore Flyer…IMG_9073

We choose the tasting menu – the portion was well balanced and of course delicious.  Price is considered reasonable among the fine dining restaurants in Singapore.  Wine pairing option available.IMG_9085

After dinner we got the chance to visit the kitchen and chatted with the chefs and was told that dishes are similar to their main restaurant in London but which an Asian touch.

Dining at Pollen also comes with complimentary access to the flower dome but unfortunately it was too late by the time we finished dinner.  However, their staff offered to give us access to the dome another day if we so wish.

 

Osteria Mozza @ Marina Bay, Singapore


We thought about going to Osteria Mozza many times but could never make up our mind cause the kids often want both pizza and pasta, and you could only get either one depending which of the two Osteria Mozza restaurants you choose. Food are delicious and I like that their “individual” pasta portion isn’t too big and just right for the kids.
