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. ;)

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others.
