Canton-i @ ION Orchard

Continuing our exploration of ION Orchard, we came across the newly opened pretty-in-pink Canton-i. We browsed through their menu and found their price to be quite acceptable… considering the all-out-no-expense-spared decoration of the restaurant in white and pink… It really looked and felt very impressive to me and we decided to try it out…

Whole Earth @ Peck Seah Street

17 JUL 2009 – [INVITED SESSION]

Whole Earth… a rather Zen name… was somehow associated with organic food when I first heard about it… Well, thanks to the invite from HGW, I soon realise that it’s a Vegetarian restaurant that serves Peranakan-Thai food…

Located just a stone throw away from Tanjong Pagah MRT Station, it is not too difficult to find… Even though Whole Earth recently moved to the current location at Peck Seah Street, a healthy lunch crowd was there when I arrived for the food tasting session…

As a belated birthday dinner celebration with some of my aunts and uncle, we went to Soup Restaurant @ Compass Point… Well, I am not exactly a herbal soup person, so Wifey & I have yet step into any of the Soup Restaurants since our return to Singapore… Then again, after such a heavy durian afternoon tea break, why not have some soup and something light!

It has been 368 days since my last visit… Finally get the chance to bring Wifey to Royal China… I called in advance to reserve a table of 2… Once arrived, we were quickly shown our seats… Once seated, we ordered some Chinese Tea ($2.00 each)… After looking through their main and dim sum menus, we decided to go for the dim sum as they were quite well priced considering a classy restaurant like Royal China…

After a not so satisfying dim sum session yesterday, Wifey jumped at the thought of my random suggestion of having another dim sumsession today when we walked passed Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Restaurant whilst hunting for our next meal… I was like… “Huh?! dim sum a.g.a.i.n….?! Seriously!??” Oh well, whatever that keeps Wifey happy!

27 JUN 2009

Asia Grand… a place we planned to have some dim sum since the beginning of the month, but had to for-go due to a nasty non-H1N1 flu-ish bug… followed by some last minutes errands… and a severe hangover…

Today… YES!!… Today is the day… we are all set for dim sum at Asia Grand, and no nasty H1N1 or any amount of binge drinking is going to stop us now!! I was actually looking forward for this dim sum session as I have heard good things said about the dim sum and dinner here coming from various friends and relatives…

As wifey was feeling unwell, we went for a simple dinner nearby… Its the first time we try this relatively new-ish economic rice /Teo Chew porridge stall which is housed within the coffee-shop by the name of Peking Room…
