Dim Sum  Smile Nov 21, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Noodles


Yes I just simply love the dim sum served by Mayim that I decided to try the dim sum in their second branch.

This time I tried their Century Egg porridge, my fave Char Siew Bao and wifey fave Siew Mai.

And Mayim did not disappoint. The porridge is tasty and filled with eggs. You can see the chucks of century eggs within the porridge. We finish the entire bowl without adding any seasonings.

The Char Siew Bao is juicy and tasty. Excellent. and satisfying.

The Siew Mai is fresh and meaty. You can taste the fresh meat in every bite.

One of the best dim sum place in Singapore

Best Chicken Rice in SG Smile Sep 13, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Hainanese | Chicken Rice


If you looking for a good chicken place at affordable price, Boon Tong Kee is the answer.

Not considering having to wait 15 mins for a table, the staffs are able to provide good service, good food recommendations and they know their stuff.

A must-have is the white, silky, steamed chicken.
The is so tender and silk that it slips down my throat. Most importantly, it is fragrant and nice. Goes very well with the fragrant chicken rice bowl

We also ordered the Claypot Toufu. The toufu is soft on the inside and hard on the outside. The sauce is thick and tasty. smile I love it.

Heavenly but at a price Smile Sep 11, 2010

Categories : Fusion


You simply just have to try the Braised Duck Pizza(S$18). The unique pizza comes shredded duck meat(yes you can actually taset the duck meat), generous cheese toppings, rocket leaves and mayo on the thin crust.
It is excellent! Two of us finished the entire pizza.

We also had the Pork Belly(S$12) because wifey insisted on having it.
It is no different from having the roasted meat in the market down the street. It tasted exactly the same except that it has thinner and crispier skin just like suckling pig skin. Not worth the $$$.

Oriental Food at reasonable price Smile Sep 10, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Beijing


Have there often but this is the first review I have for them.
It was parent's birthday tongue

We have the family fave Beijing Duck, Claypot Toufu, Sweet Sour Pork and Vegetable Mushroom.

The Beijing Duck is a MUST-TRY. Skin is thin and crispy. The sauce and chili for the wrap is thick and fragrant. Excellent.
For the duck meat, we got them to stir-fry with ginger and spring onion. It is tasty due to the oyster sauce used in frying and you can taste the juicy duck meat.

However, the claypot Toufu is a little disappointing as it taste like those from the coffeeshop. It is filled with lettuce, make me wonder if I am paying the right price.

The Sweet Sour Pork is another family's fave.Crispy boneless pork meat fried in sour and sweet sauce. You will be able to taste the distinct sauce and makes the pork super juicy. Nice! smile

The Mushroom Vegetable is also unique coz its oyster sauce is fragrant plus you will be able to taste the mushroom freshness as they are not over-cooked.

Great Set Meals Smile Sep 05, 2010   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Beijing


Imagine S$38 for two pax with 4 dishes.
And all of them comes in generous portions, leaving us thinking that the set meal is good for 3 pax instead.

For S$38, you will get

1) Two bowls of rice
2) Herb duck
3) Baby Kai Lan
4) Mongolian Pork Ribs
5) Lotus Soup

Other than the all time fave Herb Duck, the Mongolian Porks Ribs is also very unique. A little peppery and spicy, the crispy ribs is very appetizing.

The Baby Kai Lan has a very distinct soury taste and goes wwell with the white rice.

The Lotus Soup comes with ribs inside and it is very tasty. You can really feel the nutrients inside the soup. You'll know that the soup has been boiled for long period of time.

However, we ended up paying much more for a small plate of peanuts(S$2) and wet towl(S$0.30) and Chinese Tea(S$1.50). I recommend rejecting the peanuts and just stick to plain water.
