    Lei Garden's the grand dame of Cantonese fine dining restaurants and one of the heavyweights in the power business lunch circuit. Nestled within the beautifully restored Chijmes cathedral, this well-known Hongkong-based restaurant is one of two overseas outlets. Even with its stellar reputation, it is refreshing that Lei Garden manages an unpretentious and boisterous ambience.

    We ate:

    1) Black Fungus with Vinegar. This was refreshing and zesty.

    2) Double-Boiled Pork Ribs Soup ($28):delicate but full-bodied soup

    3) Pan-Fried Carrot Cake ($4.80): soft

    4) Baked Mini Egg Tarts ($4.30), a buttery flaky pastry with a wobbly and smooth egg custard within

    5) Crispy Roasted Pork ($28) decadently good

      Stepping into the tiny 30-seater restaurant is like stepping into a Peranakan friend's home for a meal. It's just so homely and quaint. This shop is housed in a beautifully restored Peranakan shophouse. The first floor comprises a restaurant and a stall selling Nonya kuehs, cookies and dumplings. The second floor contains a museum / heritage home full of exquisite Peranakan paraphernalia.

      We ordered:

      1) Nonya Chap Chye ($6 for small), a vegetable medley of cabbage, carrots, clear vermicelli, fried beancurd stewed in fragrant fermented bean paste.

      2) Bawan Kepinting Soup ($12 for small) was unexpectedly delicious. The fermented bean paste soup, with freshly handrolled meatballs of crabmeat and minced pork, silvers of crunchy bamboo shoots, smooth slices of topshell and abalone mushroom was unassumingly delicate yet rich

      3) Nonya Ayam Curry ($8 for small), with juicy chicken thigh pieces and Dutch potatoes in a thick creamy gravy was spicy and rich

      4) Babi Pongteh ($8 for small), with bamboo shoots, shitake mushrooms and pork was a little "weak". Lean cuts of pork was used instead of the traditional version with fatty pork belly. The tau cheo (fermented bean paste) used wasn't very rich either

      A little note about the service here: Although I've heard some bad rants about the service here, I enjoyed great service here. The waiter who served us was such a charming little boy. He wasn't the most efficient of the lot but he was funny, cheeky and had a cute personality. He really made us feel right at home.

        3. Rang Mahal

        Rang Mahal is one of the oldest, fine-dining, award-winning restaurants in Singapore focusing on North Indian cuisine. And it's little wonder why, their food is exquisite and consistently good. Of course, this all comes at a price commiserate with the experience and ambience of one of Wine & Dine's and Singapore Tatler's Best Restaurants since 2000.

        Lunch Buffet ($45 per person)

        1) Tandoori Salmon Tikka: aromatic and rich in flavour.

        2) Panchkkuti Dal of slow cooked mixed lentils was delicately spiced, chunky and thick.

        3) Naans: fluffy, well-charred and so fragrant

        ALA Carte Menu

        1) Portobello Mushrooms ($28), stuffed with cheese and grilled to perfection in the tandoor.

        2) Samarkand Prawns ($40), ginormous prawns dry-rubbed with tandoori spices and stuffed with freshly shredded crabmeat and also grilled

          Tiong Shian's provision of our local classic comfort food of steaming hot Cantonese-style porridge has made it a firm favourite with clubbers requiring post-alcohol sustenance because it's open till late. The coffeeshop in the heart of Chinatown spans 2 storeys, with air-conditioning available on the second floor.

          We ordered:

          1) Chicken Porridge ($3) Smooth with tiny discernible rice grains in a flavourful broth.

          2) San Lou Hor Fan ($6), which is arguably one of the better versions of this sliced fish noodle dish. This was clean, light and delectable

          3) Crispy Noodles with Seafood ($4), which didn't wow us as much as the aforementioned hor fan. Still, the seafood was fresh and plentiful

            Crystal Jade Kitchen at Holland Village recently launched its "Guang Zhou Style Stewed Dishes Recommendation" promotion, which is only available after 5pm every night. For every 2 claypot dishes ordered, you get the Assorted Vegetable Casserole for only $3.80.

            We ordered

            1) Stewed Pork Belly with Belachan ($13.80) of thinly sliced decadent pork belly with shrimpish belachan and crunchy green vegetables. This was spicy, bold and indulgently yummy.

            2) Stewed Assorted Mushrooms with X.O. Sauce ($14.80), with the shimeiji, oyster, white button and shitake varieties. The fragrant seafood based X.O. sauce flavouring was heady, lightly spiced

            3) Assorted Vegetable Served in Casserole ($3.80 promo price, $13.80 usual price) was unexpectedly delicious! There were so many different vegetables, in a luscious oyster sauce base. I loved the varied textures of this dish
