SabX Wanton Noodles
Much has been written about this particular Wanton Noodles establishment in Bangkok – SabX Wanton Noodles. The menu is relatively simple – (1) Dry version; (2) Soup version. Don’t you love it (sometimes) when there are less options to choose from, in the already complex life that we live.
For what it’s worth, especially with all the hype surrounding it, I thought of it as being fairly decent. Granted, it was different as compared to our local renditions – read: more spicy (the “kick” comes in depending on the amount of chilli that you add yourself. Do note that portions are small but are perfect for a quick meal almost any time including in-between shopping trips to Platinum Shopping Mall (SabX is located opposite it).
To get there by foot, on the road opposite of Platinum Mall, walk towards Shibuya 19 Mall and McDonald’s (against the traffic flow). When you see the big M (i.e. McDonald’s), turn right into Soi 19. SabX is about 200 metres down that street.

The last restaurant that we visited during Restaurant Week 2014 was Forest by Chef Sam Leong (formerly of Tunglok) at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) Singapore. Suffice to say, it was the least enjoyable as compared to the other 2 restaurants that we patronized during Restaurant Week. Click here to read reviews on those 2 restaurants: Review 1 on OSIA and Review 2 on Summer Palace.
Forest was awarded 1 Dining Star by DiningCity, the organizer of Restaurant Week in Singapore; which meant a surcharge of S$20++ for applicable for dinner.
Summer Palace has been one of the more memorable, if not the most memorable, meals that I’ve had during recent sessions of Restaurant Week. They have 2 or 3 Restaurant Weeks in a year, no? This of course, is entirely my personal opinion. A quick glance at the Restaurant Week’s reviews page for Summer Palace (see: http://www.diningcity.com/en/singapore/restaurant_summer_palace/reviews) showed that it has garnered relatively mixed reviews.
As with most Singaporeans’ conversations around the dining table go, many a time they revolve around food. During one of those dinners as part of the Lunar New Year visitations, my uncle recommended a stall to me somewhere in Serangoon when I briefly mentioned that Roasted Duck is one of my favourite hawker foods.
And so, I specifically made a trip down. I was definitely not disappointed. The Roasted Duck was moist and succulent whilst the roasted pork had minimum fat in between the layers with a crispy crackling on top.
