Soufflé Duxton Hill is a new French restaurant that specialises in soufflés. With six savoury soufflés and eight types of sweet soufflés on the menu, anyone can satisfy his craving for the fluffy French baked egg dish here. Souffle is run by Delicae Hospitality Management Group (“DHM Group”) which used to operate the Sabio Tapas Bar from the same premises. We had brunch there recently and tried seven types of soufflé. I probably ate more souffle in one day than I did in the past ten years.

HSBC Card 1 for 1 deals for dining in Singapore are attractive propositions. Effectively a 50% discount, these are the dining promotions which are hard to resist. There is a high tea package at the 1864 Bar of Sofitel City Centre in Tanjong Pagar Centre. Its regular price is $88++ for two persons. We were planning a meet up with friends during the festive year end period, the HSBC Card 1 for 1 deal meant high tea for four pax at $88++. We thought it was a good deal as it effectively meant a cost of only $22++ per person.
Two sisters in their twenties decided to start a food business that would serve “hearty meals that fuses the best of local and the world’s food heritage”. They bravely decided to offer popiah in a variety of flavours and pairing it with popular soups from around the world. That was how Souperstar was conceived. The first Souperstar outlet was in Eastpoint and there are now several outlets in Singapore including a popular one in the basement food hall of Tanjong Pagar Centre. As the saying goes, fortune favours the brave.
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? Having actually eaten Ah Lock’s Hakka tofu, which was not bad, we would prefer to eat the stall’s min jiang kueh.
