Ah Lock & Co

Ah Lock & Co is a newly opened eatery in Tanjong Pagar Centre offering Hakka Tofu Rice Bowl & Min Jiang Kueh. The tagline “Eat My Tofu” is on one of its walls as well as on the t-shirts of the staff  –  witty or inappropriate?

TungLok XiHe Peking Duck Orchard Central – Peking Duck with a twist, or two.


TungLok XiHe Peking Duck Orchard Central is one of two Tunglok Peking duck restaurants in Singapore. The other one is in the Grandstand in Bukit Timah.  A collaboration between the Singapore Tunglok restaurant group and the Beijing XiHe Group.   The signature dish at the restaurant is of course the Peking duck.  There are many Chinese restaurants in Singapore serving Peking Duck these days.

Paradise Teochew VivoCity – dim sum at new Teochew restaurant


Paradise Teochew VivoCity is the latest new restaurant by the Paradise restaurant group. It is located in a quiet corner of level 1 of Vivo City (it is the last unit along the side facing Sentosa and furthest away from Harbourfront). Yet it was a full house when we were there. I think the opening promotion which is on till 7 Dec 2018 might have contributed to it.  Please see photo below for details.
