Blue Lotus Chinese Noodle Bar @ Savourworld Science Park

The Blue Lotus Chinese Noodle Bar, Science Park Drive is a restaurant in a cluster of restaurants near NUH in Kent Ridge. The cluster is called Savourworld and there are now about 12 restaurants that are operational. We will show you more about it in a subsequent post. All the restaurants looked interesting.  I decided to try the Blue Lotus Chinese Noodle Bar as the Blue Lotus restaurants by Chef Ricky Ng seem to have received many awards. It also had the most outstanding frontage announcing its presence along Science Park Drive.

Nanjing Impressions Restaurant 南京大牌檔 at Plaza Singapura

Nanjing Impressions Restaurant 南京大牌檔

Nanjing Impressions Restaurant 南京大牌檔 at Plaza Singapura is certainly impressive. When we walked into the restaurant, we half expected a sword-wielding Zhang Ziyi to glide gracefully into the dining hall. The nice food, interesting decor and the mental image of the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star evoked by the atmospheric restaurant made our lunch at Nanjing Impressions a delightful experience.

Best Sang Har Mee in PJ, and some say Malaysia

Restoran Green View Sang Har Mee

When we visited Malaysia recently, a local told us that the best Sang Har Mee in Petaling Jaya was to be found in Restoran Green View. There were even those who said  that Green View had the Best Sang Har Mee in Malaysia. We took a trip out to PJ to try Green View’s Sang Har Mee and was not disappointed.

Peach Garden OCBC Centre – dim sum and Peking duck lunch

The Peach Garden OCBC Centre Chinese restaurant is an impressive place. It takes up a large space on the 33rd floor of the OCBC Bank’s head office building along Chulia Street. If the spaciousness of the place does not take your breath clear away, the clear aerial view over Singapore probably will. We were there for a sumptuous dim sum and Peking duck lunch.

The Best Bo Lo Bao in Singapore

We think the best bo lo bao in Singapore can be found at the Wah Lok Restaurant in the Carlton Hotel along Bras Basah Road. Good dim sum restaurants are expected to have the basic dim sum items like char siu bao and har kao done right. Wah Lok is one restaurant that does all this plus also the very important bo lo bao. This is the place to go in Singapore when we are in the mood for bolo bao.
