Ah Lock & Co – forget the tagline & just Munchi the Min Jiang Kueh

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? Having actually eaten Ah Lock’s Hakka tofu, which was not bad, we would prefer to eat the stall’s min jiang kueh.

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.

Little Creatures Singapore – Is it wrong to have beer at breakfast?

Little Creatures

Little Creatures Singapore is a brewery, pub and cafe at the junction of Club Street and Mohamed Ali Lane.  In 1999, Little Creatures Brewing started making beer in a shed in a former crocodile farm in Fremantle,  Australia. Their craft beer was a success and as they say, the rest is history. We have seen Little Creatures craft beer in cans are in shelves in many Singapore supermarkets. Little Creatures brewery set up shop at Club Street earlier this year. Unusually for a brewery and pub, they open very early and have long opening hours – from 8 am to midnight. If you feel like a pint of freshly brewed ale at 8 am,  you know where to go.
