𝗕𝗶𝗴 𝗙𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗦𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗙𝗶𝘀𝗵 @ 𝗝𝗖𝗨𝗕𝗘 🐟🐟🐟

A new addition to the restaurants at JCUBE is 𝗕𝗶𝗴 𝗙𝗶𝘀𝗵 𝗦𝗺𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗙𝗶𝘀𝗵. They have recently launched a new menu which is the 𝗦𝗲𝗱𝗮𝗽 𝗥𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 which attempts to marry the traditional Rendang sauce with the western Fish and Chip.

The well-fried Breaded Sea Bass is drizzled with the Fragrant and thicker Rendang Sauce and garnished with Fresh Shallots and toasted Coconut Flakes. Their rendition of this classic Indonesian is the less spicy version. Comes with Crispy white baits and 220z soft drink. You can choose the switch out the carbs with Potato crisp, fries or Pilaf Rice.
I would choose the pilaf rice because it is cooked in a concentrated broth/stock which results in its super flavorful taste.

They also have the rice box sets which comes with potato crisp, sous vide egg and sauteed veggies. We had the salmon one with pilaf rice. The salmon was also a hot fav because of its tenderness.
They have introduced new small bites which are perfect for sharing such as the Har Cheong Fish Nuggets and the Churro Balls with salted egg lava dip.

Last but not least, I love that they have so many sauces for us to dip our fish in! Some of the flavours are so local such as the salted egg and curry! There are also exclusive sauces for this outlet. They are Spicy Thai, Honey Mustard and Habanero Pickle.

SINGAPORE, 4 September 2019 – Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet launched to great fanfare in a charity cook-off starring Li Nanxing and Christopher Lee. The actors are used to sharing television airtime but for the first time, they shared kitchen space at the Taste Singapore Star Charity Cook-Off that highlighted what the new gourmet supermarket factory outlet and dining destination had to offer – restaurant quality produce at the most competitive prices in town.

For an evening, they pitted their culinary flair together and cooked four dishes: Nanxing whipped up his mum’s favourite beef and chicken rendang while Christopher cooked up his wife’s favorite braised pork and pan-fried prawns. They prepared and procured all the ingredients they needed from the new Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet in Holland Village.

After the cookout, a star-studded wait staff including Fann Wong, Constance Song, Julie Tan and Wei Le served guests of the evening with tasting portions of the dishes. Guests also enjoyed a free-flow buffet dinner of all the premium items that can be found at Taste Factory Butchery & Seafood Outlet and its affiliated brands.

These included premium Imperial Russian caviar, prime cut steaks, fresh oysters, roasted lamb and Swiss crispy roasted pork belly by Otto’s Deli Fresh; air-flown sushi, sashimi and Hokkaido scallops by Sens Sushi & Grill; and gourmet sausages, French baby pork ribs and beer from Surf & Turf; and more.

At the launch, renowned radio DJ DongFang Billy Wang also shared a taste of his home-made Billy’s Signature Lemonade that guests could purchase.

Following the exciting cook-off, Li Nanxing’s Mum’s Favourites Beef and Chicken Rendang, and Christopher Lee’s Wife’s Favourite Braised pork, are also available for pre-order purchase exclusively at Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet.

In the spirit of charity, 100% of proceeds from online ticket sales to the cookout also went to charity. 50% went to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund that is channelled to support 10,000 students from low-income families and another 50% to Business Times Budding Artists Fund that seeks to make the arts accessible for children and youths from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.


The new supermarket concept Taste Butchery & Seafood Factory Outlet strives to bring its shoppers the best restaurant quality produce at factory-direct prices.

It is proud to carry the largest range of premium meat and seafood products from oysters and caviar to premium sausages and beer, offered at the most competitive factory outlet prices in Singapore, made possible by its main supplier Far Ocean, a one-stop provider of the freshest choices of produce and ingredients recognised for their superior quality.

A handful of new F&B joints has opened at the new wing at Suntec City. I have blogged about The Salted Plum and 108 Matcha Saro recently. Here's fluff stack that opened at the same area. Fluff Stack is a small cafe that specialises in the jiggly and fluffy souffle pancake that is popular in Japan and Korea. If you don't want to queue at Vivo City for GRAM, this is your next best choice as the classic souffle pancake is only priced at $8.80 and the best is you don't need to wait that long for it. Other than that, they also have Oolong boba souffle pancakes ($9.80), Strawberry cheese souffle pancakes ($12.80), Hazelnut chocolate souffle pancakes ($13.80) and Mango passion fruit souffle pancakes ($14.80).

I tried the Oolong boba souffle pancakes to share with friends. The pancake is light and fluffy and topped with chewy boba pearls and finally drizzled in oolong sauce. It gives the pancake stack a sweet touch.

This cafe is literally la vie an rose as the cafe is decked out in mostly pink. The table where I sat at was pink and even the plate is in a shade of pretty baby pink. Good for ladies who are looking to shoot with instagrammable pancakes!

Opening Hours: 10am - 10pm daily


King of Fried Rice
Located at the basement 1 of Golden Mile Tower lies the Self-proclaimed King of Fried Rice.. selling Fried Rice similar to DTF. Not sure why they're there as the place is predominantly occupied by Thai eateries. I'm sure many would recognise this as even the plating is the same. I got the original egg one. The rice is pretty good la.. and the Porkchop was fried to a crisp golden brown with tender meat. This is pretty good! yummmmm!!!

They're nearer to Nicoll Highway MRT Station but you can walk all the way from Bugis as well.

Opening Hours:  Mon - Fri 11.30am - 8.30pm
Sat 1pm - 8.30pm

The Sweet Potato Porridge 🍠 and Braised Pork 🐖 are 2 of the must-try at the Salted Plum. 
The porridge is my fav and it still as creamy and smooth like how I remembered it to be.
Did you know that they recently opened their new outlet at Suntec City?

Little Damage from Los Angeles has flown in from America and set up a stall at Wheelock Place. Although a small shop front, I guess customers don't need to sit down to enjoy this Instagrammable Ice Cream. This is essentially the darker and more "Goth" version of Aqua S with the ebony cones and softserve being their best seller. 

I ordered the black softserve which is the coffee caramel flavour. Couldn't taste the coffee in this but the caramel flavour is evident in this. 

The Unicorn tears is also a hot fav at the store.
The Smurf Blue Soft Serve 🍦 is seriously so Instagrammable. I actually came back again coz it was sold out on my first visit. The flavour is cookies 🍪 and cream but all I could taste was vanilla. 🤣 Added fruity pebbles topping as it looks better for the gram.

Both of the soft serves are creamy and kind of icy in texture.

Opening Hours: 10am - 10pm daily


Curious Palette

The cafe is kind of long so to maximise the usage of space, they have long tables in the middle. The best way to illuminate such space is to let in natural light from the ceiling. Pair grey and white wall with wood types of furniture, together to create contemporary space.

Prawn Mentaiko Belacan Pasta
The spaghetti noodles are completely coated in their special sauce that consists of heady hot sauce, prawn, shallot oil, butter with a hint of belacan. I thought this would be spicy but it's not spicy at all, not even a hint of it. It is very creamy with strong umami taste. The pasta dish is completed with 3 grilled prawns and Sakura Ebi and chilli powder as garnishing. Would be even more shiok if it is spicy though.

I also ordered a cup of latte to go with the blueberry lavender tart. It had a crunchy tart crust with blueberry fillings and cream with blue swirls on top. It has a great combination of sweet with hints of fruity sourness but not overpowering! Just the way I like it. I noticed they added dried lavender probably for garnishing purpose as it does not add anything to the taste.

La Cantina in Venezia
This is the place where they serve the crab meat linguine XX is raving about. Came here during one of my off days and the restaurant is almost empty though. 

The Linguine Al Granchio ($29.90) was so delicious with every strand of the linguine pasta doused in the pink sauce with not shreds but chunks of crab meat. 🍝 This beats the one I had at Poco Loco! Recommend ya'll to try this but abit far... coz located at the 8th floor of Village Hotel Changi. You also get a spectacular view of Changi from here and also aeroplanes flying past. You can choose from indoor to the alfresco area. 

Address: Village Hotel Changi, 1 Netheravon Road, #08-02, 508502
Opening Hours: Mon Closed
Tue-Sat 11am–3pm and 6–10pm
Sun 11am–10pm



Great to clear the fridge with this 🍲 pot of Budae Jjigae (Army Stew). What's inside: Kimchi, Mushroom Dumplings, Mushrooms, and Luncheon Meat.
Great to have some Hearty Korean fare at home. Moderately spicy and oh so delicious! Finally cleared all the pre-packed Army Stew sauce I bought in Korea. The noodles really soaked up the broth well, making this a lip-smacking meal! 
Recipe on how to make the sauce from scratch here.

Aglio Olio with Vegetables
Aglio Olio Spaghetti with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, dried basil and vegetable stir-fried in garlic, Simple, tasty and fulfilling meal.
Recipe on how to make Aglio Olio here.

Pasta coated in a thick egg and parmesan cheese sauce with ham and mushroom. Garnished with spring onions. Japanese instant Eggdrop soup from @donkisg .
Having been making pasta dishes lately. To avoid scrambling the eggs, turn off the heat and add the egg mixture to the noodles. If you think the sauce is too thick, add some pasta water to thin it out.
A super easy weeknight dinner! Recipe on how to make Carbonara here.

Soybean paste stew (Doenjang Jjigae) with rice
This is one of the instant pack I bought from Korea~
The soup is thick and savoury but spicy at the same time! Best to eat with rice. Added my mushroom dumplings, luncheon meat and tofu. A healthy and #comfortfood and is a staple for rainy or cold days.

Chefs, Feed Thyself With Hearty Breakfast Recipes

Restaurant owners spend countless hours fretting over food stock and prices, catering to customers, negotiating with suppliers and supervising staff. How does a super-busy food entrepreneur stay on top of business and make time for a healthy meal?

We asked Megan Walhood and Jeremy Daniels, co-owner of the popular Portland, Oregon-based Viking Soul Food, and the answer was: Plan ahead and eat a good breakfast!

"Hunger can lead to overeating, so breakfast is important. We'll prepare a vegetable and cheese gratin or frittata, using eggs from pasture-raised chickens. This makes a tremendous difference in taste, not to mention nutritional value. We shop daily at a local farm stand and buy seasonal," says Walhood.

The gratin recipe can be prepped the night before and the frittata version -- found at www.vikingsoulfood.com -- wrapped in pita or flatbread for a delicious on-the-go breakfast treat.


  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped into thumb-size pieces
  • 1-2 parsnips (or carrots), peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 bunch EACH kale and chard stems and leaves separated and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 head garlic, about 5-6 cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt, ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated Jarlsberg cheese
  • Dash of vinegar
  • 4 farm eggs, preferably from pasture-raised chickens
Cooking Directions
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onion and parsnip and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. Add kale/chard stems to pan. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring. Add garlic slices and stir until they become aromatic. Add kale/chard leaves. Season with salt and pepper, stir well, and cover; cook about 4-5 minutes. Lay veggies in a roasting pan and top with grated Jarlsberg. You can stop here, cover and refrigerate, to finish the next morning.
  2. Preheat broiler to medium. Heat a pot of water to just below a simmer; add a dash of vinegar. Gently crack 4 eggs into hot water and poach about 3-4 minutes. Do not let the water boil. While eggs are poaching, heat vegetable dish in broiler until cheese is melty and golden.
  3. Remove gratin from broiler. Using a slotted spoon, gently remove eggs from water and place atop the gratin. Season with a coarse grating of salt and black pepper. Serves 4.


Citrus by the pool 🏊‍♂️ Situated right beside the swimming complex all the way at Woodlands, this halal-certified hidden gem has been overlooked by many. They have recently launched their seasonal menu in conjunction with National Day, however, you can enjoy the yummy food for an extended period until October! 

𝘽𝙚𝙚𝙛 𝙍𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝘽𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙙 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙚 ($14.90) 🐮
Oven-Baked Beef Brisket Rendang with rice topped with melted Mozzarella Cheese. The cheese pull was amazing, however, the rice was dry and the beef brisket lacked in flavour.

💗 𝙇𝙖𝙠𝙨𝙖 𝙋𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙖 ($12.90) 🍝
Citrus's unique take on this Singaporean classic.
Dry Laksa with linguine, shrimps, hard-boiled egg, fish cake and topped with crunchy tau pok. Love this so much! The al dente linguine was well-coated in the delicious laksa paste which makes for a hearty and shiok-licious meal!

💗 𝘾𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙞 𝘾𝙧𝙖𝙗 𝙎𝙡𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨 ($12.90) 🦀
Crispy soft shell crab, carrots and lettuce sandwiched between fluffy Chinese steamed buns, topped with homemade chilli crab sauce. What a way to eat chilli crab! The sauce is mildly spicy and leans more to the sweet side.

𝙋𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣 𝙋𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙖 𝘾𝙤𝙩𝙩𝙖 ($5.90) 🍮
Pandan custard drizzled with gula Melaka, topped with desiccated coconut. The texture of the Panna Cotta was kind of dense like a thickened pudding but the gula Melaka sauce was really good!
