Yan Ting Dim Sum at St. Regis Hotel

Yan Ting Dim Sum at St. Regis Hotel

Yan Ting feels like dim sum heaven to me, in Singapore, at least. It is, in my opinion, that it’s on par with my other favourite dim sum joint, Royal China at Raffles Hotel, with the former being a little more grandiose in terms of ambience and ingredients. My other favourite dim sum joint is Wah Lok at Carlton Hotel which serves equally good dim sum choices.

Prices at Yan Ting are definitely a little higher when compared with some other outlets, but the quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. The overall feel of the restaurant too, is a notch up of the rest. Coming from Perth, I must add that even dim sum at Yan Ting seems cheap when compared to the Chinese restaurants here. Affordability is relative, no?

Divido, Mount Hawthorn (Perth)

Divido, Mount Hawthorn (Perth)

Divido is a modern Italian restaurant along Scarborough Beach Road in Mount Hawthorn. Make no mistake about Divido – she is not your run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. At this juncture, you ought to get pictures of large portions of pasta tossed in traditional sauces out of your mind. Instead, think multi-course, almost French fine dining style cuisine.

Must Winebar Bistro, Highgate (Perth)

Must Winebar Bistro, Highgate (Perth)

MUST Winebar is a name that constantly pops up in peoples’ conversations whenever one asks for recommendations for a good restaurant in Perth. After this meal, I can definitely see the reasons behind it. Yes, service can be patchy at times but the food more than makes up for it. By the way, MUST is not a new entrant to the culinary scene in Perth – this is their 10th year in business.

There are two Must Winebars in Western Australia, the other being located down South in the Margaret River vicinity. So with a 83% approval rating based on 800 votes on Urbanspoon, read on to find out how our meal went…

Restaurant Daniel, New York

Restaurant Daniel, New York

So, I was looking at my drafts and found this from way back in December 2010. This meal was rather memorable for me because it was my only 3-Michelin starred dinner during my time in the Big Apple. Being the 3-Michelin starred establishment, the service at Chef Daniel Boulud’s eponymous restaurant, Restaurant Daniel, was no less than spectacular and the quality of the produce nothing short of excellence.

While I thought that there were some hits and misses throughout the meal and while I have taken down some of my comments into my trusty iPhone, I’ll let the photos do the talking on their own. By the way, reservations are a definitely must. Daniel has 3 different sessions for dinner and our table was only available at 9.30pm.

Dinner was Six Course Tasting Menu which went for US$185/-. The optional wine pairing went for an additional US$105.
