Ivy’s Kitchen is offering an alternative from the common Chinese meal for this coming Chinese New Year festive season with a menu sprinkled with several tantalizing Nyonya dishes. This restaurant is offering two different menus, priced at RM388++ and this special menu at RM688++. Both the food menus boast a wide range of dishes filled with auspicious meanings for this special day.

Traditionally the Chinese New Year banquet is kicked off with the Yee Sang. This dish of raw fish, crispy cracker and colorful ingredients which are symbolic is eaten with a coarsely ground peanut, plum sauce and lime juice dressing.

It’s that time of the year again! To usher in the Year of the Rabbit, many hotels and restaurants around town are having attractive promotions for the upcoming Chinese New Year Festivity!

I was delighted to indulge in the delightful Chinese New Year buffet spread on a recent visit to the Tamarind Brasserie in Parkroyal Penang Resort. Tamarind Brasserie presents an alternative dining experience during the Eve of the Chinese New Year; by launching their Prosperity Reunion Oriental Hot Wok and Steamboat Buffet Dinner.

The Sungai Pinang Food Court located at the corner of Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway (formerly known as Jelutong Expressway) and Jalan Sungai Pinang exit contains a great variety of hawker food.

One of the stalls which I regularly patronize is the Herbal Soup Stall, which offers hot bowls of nourishing Chinese soup. The stall enjoyed brisk business from the old and the young alike. The soups are boiled for long hours, infusing nutrition using many different Chinese herbs and  ingredients. There are up to ten over choices to choose from.

When Nadge contacted me about meeting up with Chef Todd, I quickly took up the invitation and tagged alongside the acclaimed chef and the crew during the recording of the show. The outing was truly inspiring, and has opened up a world of ideas for me, seeing the chef ‘in action’.

Like in all countries, Singapore also has many varieties of hawker food, adding to the comfortable hotel cuisines. You can find countless hawker food stalls located inside the shops, eating areas and food courts all over the city with reasonable prices and interesting food. The variety of food is actually amazing.

The gastronomic adventure had several of us visiting many parts of the city. We started with breakfast at Chin Mee Chin Coffee & Cake Shop, an old-school kopitiam located in an old shop house.

This traditional Chinese confectionery is charming with its defining floor tiles, ceiling fans, marble-top tables and wooden chairs of the earlier years. All these give the place a very ‘old school’ look.
