[Invited Food Tasting Event]

I was extremely excited when I received a food tasting invite from Food News PR and Hungry Heroes.

Not many may know this but I used to work in a Gaming Company for 3.5 years (well, if including the first time I was there, then it would be a total of 4.5 years). One of the games that I had planned for was DC Universe Online and I had the pleasure and honour of even visiting Sony Online Entertainment in San Diego, USA. Was planning for the launch of that game for about a year.

Coupled with the fact that I genuinely liked Super Heroes (lao niang used to read comics wor), I was super excited!

[Invited Food Tasting Event]

I was invited by Food News PR for a Brunch Food Tasting event at Salt Grill & Sky Bar not too long ago. I had the pleasure of Shasha (from Food News), Esther and Elaine as my dining companions.

I have heard of Salt Grill & Sky Bar from friends, fellow food bloggers but this was actually the first time I visited it.

Upon reaching the restaurant, I realised that this was not the first restaurant by Luke Mangan that I've visited. Last year I visited Salt Tapas & Bar!

Salt grill and Sky bar is a modern Australian all-day restaurant by celebrity chef- restaurateur Luke Mangan. It's conveniently located at ION Orchard on the 55th and 56th floors and has been highly raved due to it's choice offerings, service and great view. If you are looking for Weekend Brunch, I would highly recommend Salt Grill & Sky Bar.

[Invited Event]

Park Hotel had invited some of us bloggers for a Blogger Appreciation Dinner at Park Hotel City Hall not too long ago.

In fact, I thought it was really smart (and also sneaky) of them to use the Blogger Appreciation Dinner to introduce some of their Christmas offerings!

I brought Skai aka c(hubby) and my BFF to the dinner and we really enjoyed ourselves! Totally non-pushy event coupled with good company and good food.

Thanks Park Hotel for the lovely Blogger Appreciation Dinner and the Rainbow Cake!

For those who are looking for places to eat for Christmas Eve, Christmas or even New Year's, perhaps you can consider Grand Park City Hall or Park Hotel Clarke Quay. The food pictures shown above were from both hotels. Lunch ranges from $45++ to $78++ (for adults, without free flow alcohol) while dinner ranges from $58++ to $98++ (again, for adults, without free flow alcohol).

Aside from that, the Park Hotel Group also are offering take-home items if you are looking to host Christmas dinners at home. They have goodies such as Christmas Turkeys, Kurobuta Pork Loin, Log Cakes and my personal favourite: The Santa's Christmas Rainbow Cake.

If you are looking for a Singapore Staycation, why not consider the Park Hotel Group? I've stayed in Grand Park City Hall for a birthday staycation and Grand Park Hotel Orchard for a bridesmaid staycation before and have enjoyed myself tremendously.

[Invited Food Tasting]

BFF and I visited SIFU recently courtesy of a food tasting invitation from Huntington and SIFU. I've heard BFF raving about the food in Hong Kong plenty of times and needless to say, I was extremely intrigued by SIFU.

Personally, I have yet to visit Hong Kong, was only in their airport for a transit flight to Korea. Perhaps in future! Have been meaning to visit Hong Kong Disneyland.

SIFU is conveniently located at Bugis Junction. I love the decor! I've been checking out places with lovely decor for inspiration for #nadskaihome!

Anyway, back to the main topic.

About SIFU

SIFU is a Hong Kong inspired dining room which features their very own take on Hong Kong style items. Most of the items are fusion dishes. East meets West and Hong Kong meets Local flavours inspired items. The name SIFU actually is a reference to "master" or "teacher" in Cantonese. All dishes are handmade by the chefs and bakers by scratch!

Apparently I'm Cantonese but I do not know anything about my half-heritage. Oops. We sampled a few of their dishes and here's my 2 cents about some of them.

Handmade Pillow Buns

These handmade buns comes in 4 different fillings: Char Siew, Sweet Custard, Zuki and Yuzu Cheese. Personally I prefer the Char Siew over the sweet variations. You may notice in the picture above that there is this 'air pocket cavity' above the char siew filling. It is actually SIFU's technique of a pillowy soft bun. Buns retail at $1.20 per piece.

Crispy Prawn Toast

The Crispy Prawn Toast ($8.80 per serving) had a minced prawn paste on top of a crispy bread which was deep fried. I did find that the toast was a tad oily for my liking however it was very delicious.

Caramelised Roasted Ribs

I found it adorable that SIFU took a different take on a typical Western dish. Instead of a full slab of ribs, SIFU serves by rib. Personally I really enjoyed the rich caramelised taste. I usually do not order ribs elsewhere as it can get rather too jelak for me however, I liked the option of ordering per ribs here. The ribs are a tad costly in my opinion. At $3.90 per rib, a full slab would burn a hole in my pocket.

Pulled Pork Ribs Chinese-style Slider

This reminded me so much of a Kong Bak Pau. Instead of the usual fatty pork, SIFU uses caramelised roasted pulled pork with crunch greens in the traditional Chinese Lotus Leaf Bun. Sliders are at $4.80 each.

Signature Roasted Chicken Thigh and Shrimp Dumpling Soup Noodles

At $10.80 a bowl, this dish is easily the most value for money dish in SIFU. Instead of the usual egg noodles, SIFU uses a special type of beehoon (apparently a hybrid between vermicelli and local beehoon) in a hearty rich soup accompanied with a juicy huge chicken thigh and fat shrimp dumplings. Personally I felt that the soup was a tad too salty. However I did a quick check with my dining companions and they found that it wasn't salty to them. So it could just be my preference! Are the Cantonese more inclined to saltier food?

Pork Chop Dry Noodles

Another extremely value for money dish. At $9.80, you get a very generous pork chop with almost never ending thin, stringy traditional Hong Kong egg noodles. Highly recommended to share. BFF and I were struggling to finish this dish!

Beef Stew Rice

Easily one of favourite dishes, the Beef Stew Rice is served with a bowl of rice topped with a quail egg and a lovely medley of beef, carrots and radish stew. The beef is cooked for over 6 hours and the results are amazing. Tender and juicy meat accompanied with rich thick gravy at only $10.80.

Milk Pudding

Last but definitely not least, we tried the popular dessert from Macau. Honestly, at first, I was pretty sure that I would not like this dish. (normally am not a huge fan of jelly, pudding and anything else of that texture). Even BFF was shocked that I enjoyed this dish so much. The Milk Pudding is served with a fine 'sawdust' topping which was actually finely crushed biscuits. It was a light and not overpoweringly sweet dessert to end a great meal. At only $5.80 for a jar, I was extremely tempted to dapao one for breakfast the next day.

Do check out SIFU. I know I'll be back this week for their Milk Pudding 😉
