Brace yourself duck lovers! The Famous Four Seasons roasted duck that your friends bragged about when they are in London, now you too can enjoy just an MRT ride away. Located in Capitol Piazza opposite the City Hall MRT, We visited the restaurant for weekend lunch. The place looks fancy, the kind of restaurant you go to for special occasions. But most of the patrons at that time very casuals like us.
Ok, so my darling husband doesn’t eat duck. Yes, we went to this famous duck restaurant but did not order any. Are you kidding? Chill, I had them for take away, so I can enjoy every bites for myself only LOL!
we ordered 5 dishes from their menu. As appetiser we chose Prawn Sesame toast. Crunchy toast but somehow there’s something taste funny for my palate maybe it’s the prawn. but my boy loved them.
Spicy Fried tofu and Stir fry green beans came after the appetiser. We love how they tasted, Not too spicy for the tofu and both of the dishes have a good crunch. ( oh my we love the crunch)
And the good stuff always came last. Honey glazed pork ribs and roasted pork belly. The ribs are tender with perfect sweetness and the roasted belly came in thick slices and they serve it with mustard sauce. For us they are heavenly good.
One thing that I can’t seems to get enough is their chilli sambal, they are soooo good! not that kind of sambal that looks fiery but taste mild. This one is fiery for sure! I wonder if the sell it at the restaurant, would love to buy a jar 🙂
I always refer to pasta for simple dish. They are always easy to make with no hassle. My boys never refuse any kind of pasta meals, so yes I cook them frequently especially when I don’t have idea what to serve for lunch or dinner.
Actually this recipe was spontaneous, I just throw everything I had in the fridge and cupboard. Thank God it turned out Ok and no one got sick LOL
400 grams penne pasta
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 canned tuna
2 tbs olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Boil the pasta according to packaging directions. And drain the pasta
On heated pan, add oil and garlic. Cook them on medium heat until fragrant
Add canned tuna into the pan cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the boiled pasta, give them a toss. Give salt and pepper to taste and Squeezed lemon juice. Give a toss again.
Wait what? maybe some of you will react that way when you see my post tittle. Isn’t Thaksin use to be Thailand PM and got exile? I don’t know if there’s any relation between them but I don’t want to jump into any political stuff. Or Maybe Thaksin is in his hiding and decided to open Thai food stall in hawker centres.
This is the place I go to whenever I need my Thai food fix because they serves authentic food with cheap price. Tried 2 dish from their menus, the signature Beef Noodles & Pad Thai.
I chose the standard size & kuey teow for the beef noodles. It was quite a big portion for a petite girl like me. The soup was full of flavour and the beef slices were thick. This is a type comfort food you need on a rainy day while netflixing and chill or when you’re having cold
They have few options for Pad Thai. For plain pad thai it’s only cost you $3.00, and if you want to add Seafood/prawns/beef it will cost you $.4.50. But need to warn you that this pad thai is not for the soft tummy because they are spicy but they taste so good! If you feel like given up after the first spoon because of the fiery spicy flavour, don’t be…keep trying..it will taste better..
8 Korean Bbq is located in The Central at Clarke Quay, They specialised in pork belly bbq (which is our top favourite food) in 8 set of marinated flavoured. It didn’t take us very long to decide what to order, We ordered the pork belly in half set which are 4 pieces. The marinate we chose were miso, original, garlic and red pepper paste. If you buy the set menu, it also come with a bowl of beef stew.
What I like about this place is they are full service restaurant. There is a waiter that stand by at your table to help you to grilled the meats and filled up the side dishes and drinks.
For those of you pork belly lovers, this place is heaven! those pork belly comes in thick slices, they tasted juicy, tender, and well marinated. They don’t serves many options for side dish like in many Korean restaurant but we didn’t mind because we were to busy enjoying our meats. ( Blessed those pork who sacrifice their life to full fill our cravings.)
This place is an addition to our favourites bbq list here in Singapore! Good quality meats, great taste and value for money! whats not to love

When I was little, vegetables scared me. I refuse to ate them, I don’t like to look at them and having them in my food. maybe was it only a stage of life where you become very picky about food?
The older I get, my relationship with food shifted to the more healthier direction, I now more aware about what kind of food that I will put inside my tummy, plus I have a child now which makes me even more obsesses about healthy eating. For me healthy eating doesn’t have to be everything organics. I buy organics once in awhile if we have some loose monthly budget. But if we’re tight, I go to wet market & buy local produce. When you hear healthy food, sometimes it is associated with those unappealing and tasteless dish. Well, maybe not. At the moment, I am challenging myself to to bring something healthy but goody on the table for the family. Any of you know any good recipes to try? I would love to have that.
Below was the spinach dish I make the other day when we had Korean bulgogi. They are a good pair for any kind of bbq actually if you want a substitute for salad. So you can eat them with your steak, to make it more fusion 🙂
A colourful fruit bowl covered with thick dressing that enjoyable to share with your friends. A Kind of afternoon snack or a more “healthy” option for dessert, this Rojak or Rujak mixed is something you can’t say no to. So how do we say it? Rojak or Rujak? Singapore & Malaysian called it Rojak, and Indonesian called it Rujak. They all have the same meaning which is “ mixed” and each country have their own version.
This morning, on my way to groceries shopping around clement area, I stopped by at Block 499, to take away pad thai for lunch. Nearby there’s a famous rojak stall that’s usually have long queu at lunch time, Since it was 9.45am, so it was empty. Greeted by the friendly uncle who mixed the rojak, He said they always open at 9.25 am sharp never miss and closes at 21.30 pm wow heads off for your punctuality uncle! This Singapore style rojak consist of jicama, pineapple, cucumber, tau pok, cuttlefish and chinese fritters with thick spicy dressing, definitely a party in your mouth!!
If you take away your rojak, the uncle will separate the dressing so they will not get soggy if you eat them later. It’s a must try if you around Clementi area. .
Did not took me too long to fall in love with this dish, it has all the flavour to amuse your taste bud.What’s not to love? Sweet, Savoury, crunchy and spicy all married in your mouth.
If you google Cereal chicken recipe, there are so many variations appears from western style to asian style .What I’m going to talk about in this post is the Singapore style chicken rice. This dish is one of local favourites , you can easily find them from fancy restaurants to hawker stalls.
For some of you it maybe quite strange to combine chicken and cereal, but trust me, this one is smacking good. Where exactly this dish came from? is it chinese dish? if yes, how come there’s curry leaves all over it? Well apparently, since Singapore is a multicultural country, this dish is the result from that. No wonder, you can find so many flavour in it.
Since I’m a lazy mama, when I found this Cereal chicken mix in the supermarket, I have to grab it and make it for dinner. I used Singlong brand, and It was so easy peasy to make you will get restaurant quality dinner ready in minutes. Enjoyed them with hot steam rice while watching Ellen’s 12 days of Christmas on TV . Life is good 🙂
