Noms at The Salted Plum

A couple of months back, I did some food tasting and restaurant review in Singapore and The Salted Plum was on my list. However, some of the dishes I need to order was only available during lunchtime and it was already past 6pm when we arrived at the restaurant so I wasn't able to taste the rice bowls.


The Salted Plum is located in the Boat Quay district so it was a cool experience to get lost a bit while my daughter and I searched for the restaurant. And we were quite famished by the time we got there so we ordered a couple of noms to give some some energy.

The restaurant serves rice bowls during lunchtime and choices of Taiwanese street food and some other dishes a la carte (basically the same during lunchtime except the dishes are not in rice bowls) and some choices of beer and wine in the evening.

Singapore was experiencing hot weather that time and the air was humid so we got us some iced drinks which was served in to-go packets. We got red tea and salted plum drinks. It is nice to note that the drinks actually tasted more tea-ish than sugar-ish. And the salted plum drink was both sour and salty with a hint of sweetness. A bit weird tasting but one I got used to the taste after a few sips.


Then we had the Taiwanese Fried Chicken which was perfectly cooked- crunchy on the outside and has tender and flavorful meat on the inside. It comes with a slice of lemon and nori mayonnaise dip which I didn't recall tasting since I love the chicken as it is.


So this is our $10 SGD Steak which made me and my daughter sad after finishing off the whole plate. It was buttery soft and melt-in-the-mouth kind of steak with some garlic sprinkle and pickled ginger on the side. Really, really good.


It was a wonderful dining experience at The Salted Plum although most of the diners here are locals and expats. I guess tourists tend to crave for 'real' Singaporean fare when visiting the country. Posting my Singaporean food and restaurant discoveries soon so be sure to visit my blog again. ;)

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hain in Boracay

Aside from being one of the top beaches of the world, Boracay is also known for its diverse food and restaurant choices. And on that note, I'm happy to share that we discovered a newly opened restaurant called- Hain. 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
