Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop – Smooth Hong Kong Style Milk Puddings And Mango Pomelo Sago, Found At East Coast Road

Despite Singaporeans’ love for desserts, we actually don’t get that many Hong Kong style dessert shops around.

The most prominent and authentic ones are probably Ah Chew Desserts, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert, Ji De Chi, and Dessert First.

When I learnt about Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop 金玉满堂甜品 at East Coast, I think it has the potential to be a hit with families.

Perhaps its location, lack of marketing and visibility cause it to be off-the-radar, but this should pick up really soon.

The dessert shop does remind of Ah Chew Desserts in a certain way, and I do hope they can one day extend hours later to cater to the night owls.

Some of its specialties include the Ginger Milk Pudding 姜撞奶 ($4.00), Shun De Double Layer Milk 顺德双皮奶 ($3.60), Peach Gum with Milk 桃胶鲜牛奶 ($4.50), Mango with Mini Rice Ball 芒果小丸子 ($5.00), and Deep Fried Milk 炸牛奶 ($5.50).

The Ginger Milk Pudding ($4.00) is probably their hero product, made on the spot only after ordering.

First you get a bowl of ginger mixture, after which milk would be poured into it. Wait for about 4 minutes or so, then the milk would turn into smooth-wobbly pudding.

Just like how it is traditionally done. Note that no takeaways will be available for this due to the steps needed to make it properly.

The signature Shun De Double Layer Milk ($3.60) originated from Shunde in Foshan China. You can also choose other toppings such as red bean, mango, lotus seeds, walnut, almond, and papaya.

The milk pudding was incredibly soft, and melt-in-your-mouth.

It does remind me of Hong Kong’s Yee Shun Milk Company, except that this may in fact be even softer.

It is fair enough to say that Mango Sago Pomelo ($5.00) aka ”Yang Zhi Gan Lu” is one of Singapore’s favourite Chinese-style dessert.

Their version came with grapefruit pulp, which provides that slightly-bitter and tart taste which complemented the sweet, fresh mangoes.

I also enjoyed that the desserts here, are generally not too sweet.

The next time I come, I am likely to try the Deep-Fried Milk ($5.50) which requires quite an extensive making process.

A special milk mixture has to be harden, wrapped up, then deep fried carefully upon ordering.

You would get that crunchy feeling on the outside, and soft-melty inside.

Mellben Seafood – One Of The Best Chilli Crabs And Claypot Crab Bee Hoon, At Ang Mo Kio With Michelin Recommendation

Ask where the best Chilli Crab is in Singapore, and you may probably get a debate with varying supporters of Roland, Red House, No Signboard, Long Beach, to Jumbo.

I would say Mellben at Ang Mo Kio is a popular and safe choice for finger-licking-good Chilli Crabs and Claypot Crab Bee Hoon.

From a humble stall along Commonwealth Avenue in 1979, the family-run Mellben Seafood has established itself as a well-known seafood destination in Singapore.

In 1985, founder Melvin Soon partnered with Benson to launch Mellben Seafood Catering Service. Today, their network has a total of 8 outlets, including Uncle Leong’s Seafood (Yeah, they are related).

The restaurant is also listed in the Singapore Michelin Guide with a “Michelin Plate”.

The open-air crab shell-adorned restaurant in Ang Mo Kio is located quite distance away from the nearest MRT station, at a kopitiam in one of the HDB estates.

Some people brave the distance for a taste of their heavenly crab dishes, but it is best to call ahead to make a reservation.

Otherwise you will face with a long wait, especially during the weekends.

Almost everybody comes here for the crabs.

Choose from any of the 15 ways their in-house chef freshly prepares the star crustacean, from the classic Chili Crab to Black Pepper Crab, Butter Crab, Curry Sauce Crab, Salted Egg Yolk Crab, Shimmering Sands Crab, Claypot Crab Vermicelli Soup, Laksa Crab, and many more. (The Laksa Crab is exclusively available at their Opal and Pasir Ris Branches.)

Mellben’s Chili Crab is arguably one of the best in Singapore, served using large crabs in a thick, spicy and slightly sweet chili sauce. Level of spice can be adjusted according to your preference.

It is understandable that preference for Chilli Crabs can leave people divided: some may prefer spicier sauce, while others would like more of that sweet-ketchup taste.

Mellben’s style is very starchy, eggy and gooey, ie a lot of sauce that you have more than enough to sweep your mantou.

I won’t say it was spicy, but had more sweet-savoury notes and quite well-balanced. I actually still liked the sauce very much.

Crabs were thankfully fleshy and succulently-sweet, more substantial than some of the recent ones I tried.

However, a medium sized portion could cost you about $100 or even more, and this would be seen as ‘touristy-pricey’, especially when it is at a non-airconditioned space.

The other thing is, the fried mantou were sent much earlier than the crabs, and therefore it lost much of the crispiness by the time the star arrived.

The Claypot Crab Bee Hoon Soup aka Claypot Crab Vermicelli Soup is also a must-try. You may have to wait for 45 minutes, depending on the time you come.

Served piping hot, the milky broth is rich and aromatic with its inherently sweet crabs and smooth glass noodles.

If you are lucky, the crab meat in your crab is “solid”. As they say “Not 100% Guaranteed Solid Crab”.

They also offer live seafood and a variety of zi char dishes.

Average check per person is $50 – $60. Prices are not listed in the menu, so you may want to check before ordering before you end up with a shock.

Its Friday and it has been a bad week. Boss is on your case, girlfriend/boyfriend driving you up the wall and you need to blow off some steam. Suddenly, that ice cold beer with some good friends sounds really good, doesn’t it?

But which place is actually good for you to head to? Are you keen on something a little more exotic? Somewhere a little more “hidden” that won’t be heaving with people?

I’ve got a list of great places for you to get an ice cold beer to relax and unwind.

Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao 中国拉面小笼包 – Steamed Dumplings At Chinatown With Michelin Recommendation

So Chinatown Complex Food Centre has made its return after a few months’ renovation (though as an outsider, we don’t see much noticeable differences other than the nets), and the one stall that many look forward to is Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao 中国拉面小笼包.

The humble stall offers a great value for your money with delicious handmade Xiao Long Bao ($6.50), Szechuan Spicy Wanton ($5), and hand-pulled noodles such as Sour & Spicy Noodle, Beef Noodles, Dumpling Noodles and Sour & Spicy Noodles (each bowl priced at $3.50 – $4).

It gained more recognition after it was awarded a “Michelin Plate” in the Singapore Michelin Guide.

For first timers, navigating around the food centre especially in the hot weather may be daunting, so I always first look out for Hawker Chan Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle (#02-126). The stall is kind of nearby (#02-135).

Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao 中国拉面小笼包 was first established by Mr Li Feng Cai and his wife who were originally from Anhui, China. He learnt the art of noodle making from Beijing and Shenzhen.

Who doesn’t love a good steamed dumpling?

The Xiao Long Bao are freshly made on the spot by hand, considered affordable at $6.50 for 2 baskets of 5 (increased from $6 before renovations).

Digging into that smooth skin, to find steamy and belly warming soup and juicy filling awaiting you, can be a blissful experience.

The broth to said to be cooked for 12 hours before being frozen and wrapped in the minced pork dumpling.

Many would compare this to the offering of the other famous chain. I would say while it lacked the finesse in terms of consistency and thickness of skin, the fillings were moist and meaty, while broth was to the sweeter side.

Add some vinegar and chilli for a better experience.

The Pan-Fried Dumplings aka Guo Tie ($6.50 for 10 pieces) certainly looked promising with its crisp outer layer, and almost golden-brown exterior. Such beautiful pieces.

Alas, the inside wasn’t as juicy as I would have expected, though it was similar rather meaty. So im comparison, not my favourite thing here.

If you need to choose, then I would rather go for the Szechuan Spicy Wanton aka Hong You Chao Shou ($5 for 10 pieces) with almost slurp-worthy vinegary sauce with tingling of spiciness.

Between the Xiao Long Bao and La Mian, surprisingly the La Mian with Fried Bean Sauce ($3.50) impressed me more.

There was a certain pleasant and doughy bite to the long strands of thin noodles.

The bean sauce was generous in portion, and wasn’t over in terms of that fermented bean taste.

The stall does get rather crowded during peak meal times, as more tourists are getting aware of their existence, especially when they have got a fair bit of publicity from the Singapore Michelin Street Food Festival. Come slightly before the typical dinner times if you can.

Eat-all-you-can durian kampung in Penang

GEORGE TOWN – Forget about “branded” durians such as Musang King, Or Chi (Black Thorn) or D24.

The sweet, juicy, succulent, and not too expensive durian kampung is still considered the best of the lot for many.

A hotel has even organised an “eat-all-you-can durian kampung” buffet at the back lane of its building off Jalan Magazine here.

M Summit Group founder and managing director Datuk Albert Moh says that the buffet at M Summit 191 Executive Hotel Suites is priced at RM35 for adults and RM15 for children with reservations required.

He said the hotel was doing its bit to help promote the state’s most famous fruit via its durian kampung buffet promotion.

The buffet will be held until July 30 from 3pm to 9pm.
