Just some random shop at Chinatown foodcourt which serves Katong Laksa. It was definitely better than what I had in Katong despite serving with lots of processed food, but I guess it was the broth and noodle that I enjoyed.
Some random prawn noodle shop about 2 stalls away where there was a queue. I don't like prawn noodles but I was actually eyeing on the pork tail!
Breakfast at Chinatown is an option if your hotel doesn't serve breakfast. In fact, it's more fun to dine here than having hotel's really basic spread, even Sheraton SG did not serve food up to my expectations.
Their signature char siew.... Which is coated by a layer of sugar. So much sugar...
Steamed Dumplings (SGD26)
The steamed dumplings looks really tired... Barely any broth in the xiao long bao. Not sure what dimsum place is this that serves lousy dimsum...
Truffled Duck (SGD38)
But to be fair, their truffle duck saved the lunch - love the crispy skin duck with a light hint of truffle!
I didn't think the place was fantastic - it was all about marketing. It's supposed to be a modern Chinese eatery, serves decen and affordable food in the hotel. Make up your mind - are you trying to focus on food quality, or the bar or hotel class? It's like a mixture of everything and did not do well. Just a little confused.
Likes: Truffle duck saved the day
Dislikes: Dimsum place but dimsum isn't good. Signature charsiew which is popular but, coated with so much sugar? Service is also not on par for a hotel restaurant.
Lau Pa Sat is the last place I would go to for food... Came here only because it was nearby, otherwise I wouldn't have wasted my calories on bad food. The Bak Chor Mee I had was terrible, not cheap and stinge on every little thing.
If there's such thing as minced liver, that is it - so tiny I had to dig through the entire bowl..
Not to mention, the Char Kuey Teow is sweet?!?!?!? I'm confused. Omg why would anyone eat in LPS.
Amuse bouche - guess I'm not very appreciative, it's just crisps and really not much difference from grabbing a pack off the rack before heading to the payment counter. I'm not saying this is bad, it just did not appeal. It's just crisps.
Ibericopork with grilled asparagus, gorgonzola and walnut
Chicken liver parfait with grilled brioche, pear and cherries
To avoid the Valentines crowd, we decided to pop by slightly earlier. To our disappointment, the head chef was not around. The purpose of visiting is to have him supervising at least.. Oh well, our luck wasn't that great then.
Likes: The iberico pork was alright, dessert was definitely refreshing. Rump was okay - rump being rump, definitely a lot more tender than the usual rump but I think I like meat that melts in the mouth more. No more rumps for me please. Dislikes: The chicken liver pate tasted a little funny, I guess after having Dinner's Meat Fruit, no liver parfait is the same anymore...

The internet introduced this place and said it's one of the more popular pho places. So I've decided to check it out - hang on there, too early. It's only 4pm.
I can only feed my camera for now...
Came back again much later, at about 7pm? The place is packed and my gosh - the queue is actually long..
Some of the meat to tempt you.
They cannot converse in English so it's easier if you order just a standard bowl or anything shown on the wall above. Don't even attempt to customise anything unless you speak Vietnamese.
Very clear broth, fresh beef slices and all but, I think I favour Southern's version more. The broth is not only clear, it's absolutely bland and I barely taste any beef flavours. I'm a little confused to be honest! I personally will not return to this place, it did not have any wow factor at all?
Likes: Reasonably priced, hot broth Dislikes: Broth is bland, cutlery is dirty, the lady charged us extra so becareful of that, very very small place so just share your table with anyone
