Zento @ Dempsey Road

01 JUL 2009 – [INVITED SESSION]

Thanks to the invite from HGW, we approached Zento @ Dempsey, highly charged with keen anticipation for the food tasting session. One may ask… Why the anticipation? Well, Zento’s Chef Gunawan Wibisono did a stint under Iron Chef America – Masaharu Morimoto (perhaps better known as the third Iron Chef Japanese on the show Iron Chef)… We followed the earlier Iron Chef series when we were in Australia, and were constantly fascinated & enticed by some of the mouth-watering themed-creations produced… To have the opportunity to experience contemporary Japanese cuisine created by someone trained under a creative Chef with such credential… Need I say more?

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!

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…

Bergs Burgers @ Far East Square

After reading about Bergs Burgers, which basically stemmed from 2 Aussie’s ideology of finding the perfect burgers, I got a feeling that wifey and I may just like this burger joint!! Since I’m on leave, we decided to head down Far East Square for some Aussie-styled burgers for dinner…

Been reading quite a few reviews about Cugini @ HGW and have always wanted to try the place out… Finally found the opportunity to have a little romantic dinner at Cugini with wifey… Apparently, Cugini serves Southern Italian cuisine focused mainly on the region of Sicily & Sardinia… and it was an interesting night… specially the Cugini Special we ordered…

Shinobu Dining is located on the 4th storey of PSA Building. Apparently, it current name was changed from Yuzu-Shimizu Japanese Restaurant… Anyway, thanks to Dave for this introduction to Shinobu Dining… Frankly speaking and like many hidden eateries out there, I will have never known of its existence otherwise!

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…
