Ding Tai Fung

We decided to have an early lunch before heading off to the library to do some work.. As well as to avoid the lunch crowd! So we went on to what was the nearest after the disappointing restaurant near by was not able to provide us with what we were after 😦

But this turned to be a pleasant surprise! Reading the menu – which had been changed from the foldable kind to now with a hard cover and! Of course new dishes to try 🙂


We were intruged by the truffle xiao long baos (xlb) and decided to go ahead and try


Mushroom and Minced Pork Noodles

I like this noodles! I think the portioning is just nice for a meal on itself of it being shared between 2 of us. Sauce is also just right and not too saltish – wished it was a little more though 🙂


Kailan with Scallions

I like the kailan – not too over cooked and still has that ‘crunchy’ texture when bitten into despite being drowned in gravy. Troop plonkies complained too much fried scallions drizzled on top


Ice Lemon Earl Grey Tea

This is not bad except that its too sweet for me – too much syrup


Troopie Plonkies was adventurous and decided to order this – she claimed tasted like Ribena doused with syrup


Crabmeat xiao longbao – yummies! love the crabbie filling inside 🙂 so glad this one came before the truffle ones otherwise the taste would have been overpowered by the truffle ones 🙂 troopie plonks said she loves this more than the normal ones 😉



Smoked Duck Spring Rolls

Truffle xlb – turned out to be like xiao long bao in mushroomy soup – well, i think its pretty hard to fusion truffle into chinese dishes .. but good attempt but neh .. no biggy

Overall verdict: 2/2 of us will return! Although we concluded we didn’t really like the truffle tasting xlb – concluded that its pretty hard to fusion truffle with chinese dinning, good attempt nonetheless- i quite like the new dishes 🙂 as well as the noodles 🙂

This pub is popular must go for all of us to unwind on a  hectic crazy day, and especially when we crave duck pizza! The duck pizza here is unique in their shredded wanton skins to match with the pizza!  Additionally, there are live local bands that perform on a daily basis! And sweetly I was brought here before leaving for hong kong .. Will definitely miss this when I am there!!

We were invited to have a christmas celebration with my mum’s friend family.
They kindly invited the whole family to join their family in a joint christmas celebration! since we were all not able to leave Singapore for Christmas this year 🙂


so everything was ordered according to her wishes and specially suited accordingly.. I am not sure if the dishes are ‘order-able’ off the menu .. and I do apologize that my picture taking skills does not do justice in reflecting the amazingness of the food that night.


Assorted sashimi. Uni, Otoro, Sea bream, sweet prawn

Prawn with eggs

beef teppanyaki style with seasonal vegetables

Fried Bean Sprouts with Saffron

Seared Sea bass in special sauce reduction

So to end off the night, we had dessert

Matcha and Goma ice cream with azuiki (red beans)

I would totally come back here! if not for this Christmas celebration, I would not have known about this place!
