Whiskit Bakery & Cafe – Ondeh Tart & Coffee in Chinatown

Whiskit Bakery & Cafe is a quiet place to have dessert and coffee in Chinatown. It is located in Hong Lim Complex, the building with the URA carpark next to Chinatown Point. We think that Chinatown Point is one of the most bustling places in Singapore throughout the day. Whiskit Bakery & Cafe is a quiet cafe in Chinatown to have coffee and dessert, away from the crowds.

Wanton Seng’s Noodle Bar – deluxe wonton noodles at Telok Ayer

Wanton Seng’s Noodle Bar is a restaurant along Amoy Street that specialises in wonton noodles. This is not your regular coffee shop or hawker centre wonton noodle shop. This noodle shop in the Chinatown / business district of Telok Ayer has a modern, hip feel. In fact the noodles at Wanton – Seng’s Noodle Bar are presented and priced more like those in a typical Japanese ramen shop in Singapore.

Lim Chee Guan Bak Kwa for Chinese New Year 2020

You may not realise it, but Chinese New Year is less than a month away. The lunar new year decorations in Chinatown are up and Lim Chee Guan bak kwa outlets are doing roaring business once again. Lim Chee Guan has stopped doing delivery and you should soon see the familiar long lines of people waiting patiently to buy the prized bak kwa. The Signature Sliced Pork Bak Kwa was $58.00 per kg as at 29 December 2019 ($66 as at 14 Janaury 2020); and the price may increase further as CNY gets closer.

Miraku 味楽 – new sushi restaurant with amazing lunchtime deal

Miraku 味楽 is a new sushi restaurant in China Square Central near Raffles Place and Shenton Way. Like many good sushi places, it is small, intimate and with limited seats around a counter. The only problem with these types of restaurants is that they tend to serve only expensive omakase meals. New sushi restaurant Miraku tempted us through the door with an amazing value 13 course sushi lunch priced at $38++.

Coconut Club Nasi Lemak – Michelin Bib Gourmand lunch at its new restaurant

Coconut Club moved into new and bigger premises up the road – 28 Ann Siang Road in early August 2019. I think it is still not big enough. Coconut Club is a famous nasi lemak restaurant that caught the attention of Singapore and international foodies when it was reported as the restaurant where PM Lee Hsien Loong hosted visiting Philipines President Duterte for lunch. It is listed as a Bib Gourmand restaurant in the Singapore Michelin Guide 2018.
