Dim sum, fried noodles & fried rice at Mei Wei

For a date night out, we went to try Mei Wei, the new Chinese casual dining at the newly refurbished The Star hotel & casino.  We ordered a number of dishes to share… xiao long bao (shanghai styled dumplings with soup in it), siu mai (pork & prawn dumplings) char siu pau (BBQ pork buns)…

Dim sums at Yum Cha Cuisine

Sometime, I crave for some delicious, juicy dumplings for a meal. Funnily enough, after 7 years of marriage, hubs craves for it more often than I do now.. hahaha.. We tried Yum Cha Cuisine for a simple dinner one night of siu mai (pork & prawn dumpling), char siew pau (BBQ pork buns), har kow…

Vienna coffee from Rivea

One of my favourite coffees is a Vienna which is coffee without milk (so usually a long black) topped with whipped cream.  This place that we went to didn’t have whipped cream so they gave us  fresh cream instead. Not exactly a Vienna per se but it made a great video… 😉 ​​

Cham Peng & Pan Mee Soup at Pappa Rich

Sangria, tamale pie & beef nachos from Montezuma

Mexican night with with friends is always a great time. Sangrias are a must to start things off 😉 It has been a long time since we have been to Montezuma. I tried the tamale pie which was really good… & hubs had the beef nachos. What I loved too was the gorgeous slaw that…

Beef brisket noodle soup from Fast Wok

One of my favourite meals is slow cooked beef brisket! Whether it is American barbecued or stewed in the Chinese style of cooking, this is my one weakness.  A big hearty bowl of egg noodles, topped with slow cooked melt in your mouth beef brisket & piping hot broth spells satisfaction to me!
