“The goose that lost its star” was how a friend of mine called it. Well, star or no star, I’m pleased to report that the Roasted Goose at Yung Kee in Hong Kong is as good as I remember it to be – 10 months ago! It’s good to know that some things just, never change.

Wah Lok at Carlton Hotel is somewhat of a stalwart in the highly competitive dim sum scene that we have here in Singapore.
Weekend lunches here are a packed affair, so advanced reservations are a definite must.
Christmas came and went, then New Year’s arrived with a bang. Before we realize it, Chinese New Year is just on the horizon. To all my readers and friends celebrating the festivities, here’s wishing all of us a bountiful new year ahead!
I was invited to the press luncheon of the launch of the Lunar New Year Luncheon Menu at Sky on 57 last Monday however as I was in Hong Kong over the weekend, I was not able to attend. From what I see on the blog posts of some of the bloggers who attended the luncheon, it was quite the event with Kagoshima Governor Yuichiro Ito gracing the luncheon. Chef Justin Quek and his restaurant, Sky on 57, was accorded a Certification of Recommendation from the governor himself. The Certificate of Recommendation is an affirmation that the dining establishment is serving up worthy ingredients from Kagoshima.
However, all was not lost, for I tried the Lunar New Year Luncheon menu last Friday. Of course, it was good that work ended early and that Marina Bay Sands was a mere 5 minute taxi ride away.

Do read on to find out what we thought of some of the dishes available as part of the Chinese New Year menus.
Ling Zhi was a last minute change so we basically went in blindly, without research on what is worth the calories and what isn’t. Well, on hindsight, it was not a bad decision! I walked into the restaurant thinking, “Oh no…. Vegetarian Food” to “That was a great meal!” as I exited through the doors.
Entrance to the restaurant is via the lift lobby on the side of Liat Towers – right behind the ever-crowded taxi stand along Anguilla Park.
Din Tai Fung is a name familiar to many, with roots dating back to Taiwan more than 30 years ago; Din Tai Fung has created impact in Singapore since 2003. Whenever I crave for xiao long baos (steamed pork dumplings), Din Tai Fung comes to my mind instantly.
One of the newest outlets in Singapore, the outlet at Resorts World Sentosa is huge –you’re bound to score a seat even during peak hours.
