Bold European Asian Fusion Menu at Antoinette Penhas Singapore


Chef Pang of Antoinette French Restaurant in Singapore is renown for his exquisite French pastries and savoury dishes.

But, he has another side.

I am friends with Chef Pang on Facebook and have been following his fascinating food explorations off work. So, I knew Chef Pang have been experimenting with European Asian fusion dishes in his private time. I am delighted that he boldly introduced his European Asian fusion creations in his quintessentially French, Antoinette restaurant.

華美街台中擔仔麵餐廳 A Top Seafood Restaurant in Taichung


The name 台中擔仔麵餐廳 or Taichung Shoulder Pole Noodle Restaurant is a misnomer, a huge understatement as this is one of the top seafood restaurants in Taichung, if not Taiwan.

Secret behind Penang Char Kway Teow. Sang Yoon Noodle Factory 生源


The Penang style of char kway teow is well loved in Malaysia and Singapore. Personally, the top three things that make a good Penang char kway teow are quality kway teow (rice noodles) infused with a tasty sauce seared in with good wok hei 鑊氣 by skilful frying.

If I must choose the most important one, my vote goes to rice noodles because when the kway teow is bad, even the best wok hei and most special sauce can't do much to save the dish.

Penangites are so lucky with food - thanks to their water quality, Penang (together with Ipoh) makes the best rice noodles in Malaysia.

Tanjung Tualang Big Head River Prawns @ Sun Mee Fong 新美芳 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Tanjung-Tualang-Big-Head-River-Prawns-Sun Mee Fong-新美芳

This was a much anticipated meal. For Ipoh folks, a trip to Tanjung Tualang town for big head river prawns is just like JB lang 人 going to Sungai Rengit for wild caught live lobsters.
