St. Regis Singapore: An Afternoon Tea with celebrity French Master Patissier Eric Lanlard.

It seems that I only seem to blog about Celebrity Chefs coming to Singapore. A bit too tired after work to write and playing with the little one is more fun than writing!

What am I writing about today?

If you have a minor obsession like me, in minor I mean:
- watching too much food shows online and also on cable,
- love 'stalking' certain celebrity chefs when they are in town,
- buy too many physical cookbooks from Kinokuniya, Book Depository, Amazon,
- have an equally big collection of cookbooks on the Kindle....

I have a good news for fellow fans of French Master Pâtissier Éric Lanlard!
He will be here in Singapore at the St. Regis from 3 - 8 January 2017!

This stalker did take quite a few photos of him, but not with him. There was too many people at 'that' event the other time. Maybe this time I'll take a photo with him.

Eric Lanlard

If you have Éric Lanlard's latest book that came out this year, "Afternoon Tea", you are in for a treat.
Here's my Kindle version of it.

Eric Lanlard
(I am contemplating buying a hard-copy just for him to autograph it when he's here)

The reason I said you are in for a treat is because the recipes and photos in the book will become tangible and edible right before your eyes! Our dear Éric and the pastry chefs at St Regis Singapore will prepare it and you will get to taste it. The regular St. Regis Singapore's Grand Astor Afternoon Tea at Brasserie Les Saveurs will serve things in his latest book!

I did get a peek at their menu for that week, I compared it and hey, almost everything on the menu is in the book!

Here's a tentative menu that I got to see:

On the 3-tiered stand:
Top Tier: Pistachio and Rose Financiers, Tartelettes aux Fruits, Raspberry Choux Craqueline Buns
Middle Tier: Tartes Flambées, Brie and Onion Marmalade Gruyère Eclairs
Bottom Tier: Cacao Beef on Pain Perdu, Egg Florentine Roulade, Lemon Macarons with Smoked Salmon.
Accompanied by Spicy Crab Filo Tartlets

Mini Salmon Mousse and Nigella Seed Paris-Brest, Herb-marinated Boston Lobster Rolls (in the book it's Herby Lobster Rolls), Paprika Chicken Ciabattas, Pickled Veggie Bundles

Lemon Scones, Orange Blossom and Bee Pollen Scones, Raw Cacao and Raspberry Scones, Wholemeal Scones, Cheese Scones. (The regular arvo tea here is known for the scones, but it's gonna be equally good with Eric's Scones.)

Eric Lanlard
(screen shot of the Orange Blossom and Bee Pollen Scones recipe)

Gluten-free Chocolate Cake and 17 other desserts. I wonder if they will serve all or selections of it daily. I am thinking of the Clementine and Pomegranate Cake, Scandinavian Apple Cake, Salted Butter Caramel Brownies, Saffron Crème Pâtissiere, Îles Flottantes etc....

The savouries, scones and desserts should be a buffet like their regular Grand Astor Afternoon Tea Buffet.

$58++ per person from 3 - 6 January (Tuesday to Friday)
$68++ per person from 7 - 8 January (Saturday and Sunday)

If you have your SPG Membership, there's additional discounts and you get Starpoints too!

For those who don't know Master Pâtissier Éric Lanlard, he's a two time winner of the British Baking Awards' esteemed Continental Pâtissier of the Year prize. His fans who love his food includes Elizabeth Hurley, David and Victoria Beckham and of course the Queen Mother. He has published 8 books, appeared on many TV series and he runs Cake Boy - his cafe, cake emporium and cooking school in London.

Who is excited?

MasterChef Dining & Bar in Singapore @ Ash & Elm, InterContinental Singapore.

If you are a fan of the MasterChef series, you must.. must.. must.. have heard of the MasterChef Dining. The wife and I were strolling in Sydney way back in 2011 and we saw a huge MasterChef Pop-up at the St Mary's Cathedral Forecourt. We managed to take a photo with Adam Liaw, but sadly it was a sold out event so we could not dine there.

MasterChef Dining and Bar is coming to Singapore from 25 November till 9 December 2016!

Chef Marco Pierre White is coming to Singapore and a few other MasterChef personalities from around Australia, Asia and United States of America will be coming to town. It is the first time Marco will helm the MasterChef Dining and Bar Pop Up.

MasterChef Dining
Oh yes, the MasterChef Dessert Guy, Reynold Poernomo (left, photo courtesy of MasterChef Dining) from MasterChef Australia Season 7, will be here too. I love watching him plate Desserts.

He reminds me of Marcus Low from MasterChef Asia. I wonder if Marcus is coming too. Marcus and Lennardy were two of my favourites!

I read that Reynold has opened KOI Dessert Bar in Sydney. Reviews vary, but when he's here, I am sure it will be top notch as he will be here in person!

For the MasterChef Dinng and Bar Pop up in Singapore, Ash & Elm, at the InterContinental Singapore would be hosting it. It will be in an open-kitchen restaurant setting so we will get to interact with the Chefs.

The ticketing details:

20 October at all Sistic outlets.

Early bird pricing for purchase of tickets between 20 October - 27 October
$138+ (Lunch) / $248+ (Dinner)

28 October onwards:
$168+ (lunch) / $288+ (dinner)

Daily lunch sessions will feature a 4-course menu while daily dinner will be a 6-course affair. There are only over 200 seats available for the 15 day pop up event. (I read the pop up in London was sold out in 4 days when it was first launched in London).

For IHG Rewards Club / InterContinental Ambassador Level members:

You would have received the non stop announcement pop up (every 2 minutes) on your phone app! I did! You would also have received an email about it.


If you are a fan of Marco, you have 48 hours earlier (i.e. 18-19 October) access to buy the tickets.
The early access code is in your IHG App notification / Email.
The code also allows you 20% off the normal price even if you missed the early bird. 

(I bought mine tickets first (yes, I paid for it), before I blog about it. I am nowadays only blogging about things that interest me a lot!) 

Update (26 Oct):
3 More MasteChefs will be at the Pop Up!
Audra Morrice, Luca Manfe and Woo Wai Leong!

All MasterChef talents would be here for the entire event with the exception of Audra Morrice [25 Nov - 3 Dec] and Reynold Poernomo [4 - 9 Dec].

3 More MasterChefs coming...

Staycation Ideas with Delicious Food and Great View: The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore.

If you are a last minute planner or your partner is suddenly available during this coming National Day holiday, you can consider the "Celebrate with the Nation" or "Explore Singapore" room packages that is valid from 29 to 31 July and 8 to 10 August 2016.

These two packages are offered by The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore and the rooms offered are the Premier Rooms / Club Rooms.

We had the privilege to join The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore folks for a half-day experience of the "Explore Singapore" guided tour and dinner at Colony.

View of the National Stadium from The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

The photo above was taken from the Premier Room.  It will be exciting to witness the fireworks that will light up the sky above and over the Singapore National Stadium where the National Day Parade will be held this year, in the comfort of a luxurious room where you can enjoy a bottle of Moët & Chandon and a variety of snacks.

Below are details of the two packages:

"Celebrate with the Nation" - SGD740
  • Overnight accommodation in a Premier Room
  • Daily buffet breakfast for two persons
  • One bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne per stay
  • SGD50 in-room dining credit.
(If you want to snack while watching the fireworks, you can order the Celebratory Snack Platter on 9 August from SGD80 that includes steamed seafood siew mai, California maki and gula melaka cupcakes.)

"Explore Singapore" - SGD1800
  • Overnight accommodation in a Club room including exclusive Club privileges
  • A three-hour private guided tour by an accredited local guide conducted in English, inclusive of limousine transfers per stay
  • Dinner for two person at Colony per stay
  • A bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne per stay

Here are some photos of the "Explore Singapore" tour. We joined a local tour where we visited Haji Lane, Kampung Gelam and Chinatown.  The tour guide was engaging and we didn't even realised we had walked for 3 hours!

Mural at Haji Lane

It's been some time since we last went to Haji Lane. The artistic murals are the centre of attraction.  Our tour guide told us that this area was previously a sea shore and Muslims would start their pilgrimage to Mecca by boarding the boat here.

Mural at Haji Lane

While we were intrigued by the interesting shops, cafes and bakeries along the way, we noticed many people taking selfies /wefies 'instagram' worthy photos. 

Our tour guide gave us a crash course in the history behind Kampong Gelam.  He pointed us to the "Gelam" tree which Kampung Gelam is named after and also captivated us with the history on the Sultan Mosque, Sri Mariamman Temple and also the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.

After the tour, we made our way to Colony for dinner.

Ice Bar featuring various Cold Seafood like Oysters and Lobsters at Colony, The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

It was a fully booked night. We have dined here privately on several occasions and noticed the menu is always slightly different depending on the season so we are assured of the freshness of the ingredients.

If you are interested to view photos of what Colony offers, you can follow the hashtag #DiningAtColony on Instagram.

Tomahawk - Colony, The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

The "Tomahawk" Roast that was the feature "Roast" of that night.  We once had the "Iberico Roast Piglet" during one of our previous visit. I have to refer to the photos in my phone for other visits. It was always changing.

Fireworks from the Premier Room, The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore

This photo was taken from an iPhone so don't worry if you do not own a DSLR to be able to capture the fireworks.

Here are snippets of the outing.  Sorry for the jerky video as it was taken using a tiny hand-held camera. Enjoy the video.

Seasonal Taste @ The Westin Singapore, The Great Thai Feast.

It has been some time since the wife and I dined here. We first dine here when we saw the opening specials of Westin Singapore and booked a room for a short staycation. (Time passes so quickly as they are now 3 years old!)

We wondered into Seasonal Taste because there was nothing really opened at Asia Square at that time. During the weekends the restaurants at Asia Square were all closed then. We decided to have the a la carte items during lunch and they were good. All the Westins around the world has this healthy menu. Healthy yet tasty menu.

For dinner, we had dinner one night at Cook and Brew and another night at Seasonal Taste. We had their buffet then and somehow we never came back. If you watched enough restaurants reality TV, you know why you shouldn't come during the early days of opening. LOL.

We are back this time and this was an invite from the hotel and was also an unhosted tasting. You just dine like a regular guest, they foot the bill. If we liked it, we write about it. We were seated near a table of 4 hungry ladies, a couple on a date and a table of 8 businessmen on company dinner.

For 2 weeks till 31 July, they are having The Great Thai Feast.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

If you are a SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest, not Sarong Party Girl lah...) member (which is free by the way, and I have it since 2003), you get a discount of 20% plus Starpoints for future hotel stay redemption.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

One of the highlights of the Thai Feast is the Kor Moo Yang (Marinated Grilled Pork Neck). Yes, it's the fatty and muscled meat part of the oink oink animal and is used in Thai and Chinese cooking for melt in the mouth dishes. I am sure if you have been to Thailand, you have bought them to snack like me.

The dipping sauce Jim Jaew is an addictive sauce accompanies this dish. I drizzled it for most of the things I ate!

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

Another highlight of the Thai Feast is the Tom Yum Gung. Prepare to "cough /choke" on your first mouth. Recover from it and you will want more. I know my stomach, so I shared a bowl with the Mrs. If I have more of it, the body will tell me!

The table next to us really loved it from their chatter.  It's sometimes a joy to watch other people eat right? "Eavesdropping" on people who talk loudly and enjoying and laughing silently with and also at them. 

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

Marry a partner who peels prawns, and she will dish a bowl to share and then peel it for you as well.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

Papaya salad - the 'live' station that has the chef pound your salad in the Clay Kruk mortar and wooden pestle. Do you think the clay mortar bruise the Som Tams and Nam Priks gentler so they are better flavoured?

It's recommended to eat it with the Grilled Pork Neck, fresh prawns and/or salted egg.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

Pad Thai! There was once when a few of us visited Bangkok, we were on a Pad Thai discovery. We ordered and tasted Pad Thai from so many places, from streets carts and small eateries, chain restaurants and higher end establishments. We discovered that where the locals eat, the noodles are QQ / al dente. If it's a place where tourists go, it's soft like how we normally get in Thai restaurants here. I wonder if my observation was correct.

Well, this Thai Chef prepares it the QQ way here. Your parents might say it's undercook haha! A good thing about a buffet is you can add as much peanuts or chilli flakes or lime on it.

Many people will avoid the raw bean spouts and chives right?

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

I had many rounds from this station. Skewered meats, chicken wings and roast chicken with that dipping sauce that is addictive. 

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

I have a confession. I mostly skipped this station. Too much veggies for a pig out night.
I only took the Nam Prik for the veggies and used it for some rounds of cold seafood and meats.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

Not Oysters Kilpatrick, but grilled oysters with Red Curry and Green Curry. 
I think they have this for those who don't like freshly shucked oysters! Somehow they tasted so good. 

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

The main staples of the Seasonal Taste buffet - Canadian Lobsters, freshly shucked oysters. (also mussels, prawns, scallops). For the Thai Feast, they have in addition to the usual dips and sauces, Thai sauces and dips.

This was the Mrs. She always love her lobsters and oysters.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

This is my plate. I prefer Lobsters and Prawns. I had them with Jim Jaew.

Oh, if you like Pork Skin/Rind, they have a bag at the salad table and it disappears quickly. If you see it when you walk past, grab some and then top it with the spicy spreads. That's why there is pork rind on my seafood.

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

They have a quite a few Thai based desserts too. The colourful Khanom Luk Chup, it's mung bean filling inside the colourful outer layer. Like Ang Ku Kueh! 

They also have some Thai Pumpkin Custard which disappeared quite quickly! When I wanted to taste it, it's gone!

Seasonal Taste @ Westin - The Great Thai Feast

I had Khao Niew Ma Muang (Mango Sticky Rice), I know many people love this, but I am one who don't appreciate it. I like my Toffee Pudding with Toffee Sauce eaten with a scoop of Dark Chocolate Gelato, so good. I had a few more scoops of blood orange sorbet, mango sorbet and avocado gelato.

A photo posted by Philip Lim (@keropokman) on

I had 6 helping of this addictive Cha Yen (Thai Milk Tea), made from black tea infused with condensed milk. The hungry ladies beside us, they were also thirsty! Instead of these small mugs that is placed at the dessert table, they used their big iced water glasses from their table to fill it up! That good! I think I haven't had anything with condensed milk for a long time that's why!
(Warning, very sweet! Thai style sweet, which I think some people can't take it.)

If you consider this for dinner this week if you are planning for some Thai food. On a Wednesday night, it was quite filled up.

Michelin Guide 2016 - Bib Gourmand awarded to 34 eating places in Singapore.

I have ordered my personal copy of Singapore Michelin Guide 2016 and waiting for it to arrive. I know some people says isn't it silly to order when the information will be available online? Well, I have the early versions of Makan Sutra Guide, Miele Guide and why not at least a copy of Michelin Guide too? I love reading from paper is my answer.

It's one week before the official launch of the Singapore version of the Guide and they have released the names of restaurants and street food outlets in Singapore that has been awarded the "Bib Gourmand". It's what the 'Michelin Inspectors' have regarded as very good and the price range is lower than the restaurants that have the 'stars'. In Singapore the price is below $45. (In Hong Kong, it's below HKD300, or London below £28). I certainly hope the prices of the food won't reach $45 for a bowl of Bak Kut Teh!!

The press release has the following listing:

Alaturka Bussorah Street
Hjh Maimunah Jln Pisang
Ka Soh College Rd
Kok Sen Keong Saik Rd
Lagnaa Upper Dickson Rd
New Ubin Seafood Sin Ming Road
Peony Jade Bukit Chermin Road

Balestier Road Hoover Rojak Whampoa Market Place
Liang Zhao Ji Whampoa Market Place

I have not tried all of it, never heard of some of it as well. Some deserve it as they food has been really good and my family and I enjoy eating there. Some eating places have moved away more than 5 km from where we stay and we stopped going there. Maybe it's time to try the food at Ka Soh again!

Some listing.... I wonder why..... I really wonder!!! There are more who deserve the listing. Before anyone say why isn't more deserving ones listed? It's just like any other guide or listing, online or on paper.  It's just someone's view. Just like you might not totally agree with what I write.

Here are 2 photos of our recent eats at an establishment that has been awarded the Bib Gourmand. The Crab Porridge and Crab Garlic Baked Style at New Ubin Seafood. When we dined there, they said they had one-for-one offer, so we had loads of crabs.

Also some places the prices are not really $45 or less. Maybe a dish maybe. So we don't really know their criteria or who the inspectors are....

 I am also secretly quite happy the Food Centre near my home hasn't got any listings. Prices have been going up by 10-20% for many stalls. One aunty told me, we haven't raised our prices for 8 years, which is fair enough. At least I know the stalls in the Food Centre won't be suddenly going up by a lot so soon.

Happy Eating!

Breakfast at Gemmills Singapore.

Here's a hidden (or not quite busy yet) place to get breakfast if you happen to work in the Amoy Street or Telok Ayer area. The address of the place is officially 110 Amoy Street, but the entrance to the place is by the back door.

If you are one of those early risers and take the MRT to work, you can exit before 7:45 am and take a short walk to Gemmills from Telok Ayer (Downtown Line) MRT Station. Telok Ayer Station happens to be one of the 18 designated stations that you can get off for free if you exit before 7:45 am. Just cross one street and a half and you are at Gemmills. Your mobile phone map can show you the route.

Money saved on your ride and be used to get some food and coffee here. The prices here are reasonable too. Scroll to the end for a photo of the prices.

A photo posted by Philip Lim (@keropokman) on

Here's the entrance that is accessible from Gemmill Lane.

This place morphs depending on the time of the day. From 8 am in the morning till afternoon, it's a cafe, in the evening it becomes a pub. This place is a licensed bottle shop that has a wide selection of sparkling, reds and whites from around the world plus a selection of craft beers too.

Gemmills Singapore

Was here to have sampling of the breakfast that is served, courtesy of Gemmills.

There is a coveted seat here but most people will not get it unless you happen to be there at the right time. It has a view of the circular 'fire escape' staircase that is common in older buildings. Very Instagram-able just like the food here.

Decent enough table for your food and drink and 13 inch macbook air. Sorry, no wifi available as yet.

Gemmills Singapore

The priciest food here is only $8 for this bowl of Granola with Fruit and Yoghurt.
The granola is pretty good and it had a good mix of nuts and oats and has a nice toasty aroma.

It sure taste much better than my recent breakfast which has been Weet-bix. Ya, I am on strange diets sometimes and it has been Weet-bix the gluten free ones recently.  This granola made me think, why am I eating WB!! 
 This was Catherine's coffee, I was having Tea. 

Gemmills Singapore

This was the sourdough toast with jam that I had. Breads and pastry are all made in house as they have a baker that makes them there. Nicely toasted with a generous amount of butter and house-made blackberry jam, it was something simple and good.

Gemmills Singapore

The bakes for the morning. If you want a bigger selection, go around 10 or so and everything will be out on display. It will then remind you of the Cafes that are in Melbourne.

In fact, one of the co-owner of the place calls Melbourne his permanent home.

Gemmills Singapore

A capture of the pricing if you want to know.

For those in the area and have missed Stamping Ground Coffee House who have moved to the East Coast area, in the month of August, Gemmills and Stamping Ground are collaborating to have 2 unique blends of cold brew just to beat the heat.

Salted Egg Lava Croissant @ Antoinette

The lure of croissants. I do have a slight weakness for it and dragged the wife to go around Paris to taste it. You probably have watched Gordon Ramsay's YouTube where he went to Arnaud Delmontel to learn how to make the perfect croissant. That was one of the early YouTube that made me go around tasting Croissants. Arnaud do have one of the nicer croissants in Paris.

The lure of croissants also made us choose Melbourne as a destination for our family trip. Last November, in the cold winter of Melbourne, with the wife and baby in tow, we queued for Melbourne's ultimate place for croissant at Lune Croissanterie. This place really has one of the better croissants around in the southern hemisphere! (I mentioned slight weakness so I won't list out all the places and silly things I do.)

For croissants in Singapore, Antoinette has one of Singapore's better croissants. I don't use the word best because I haven't found one. (Mua ha ha ha....) On 1 February, Antoinette joined the hype of having Salted Egg Lava Croissant. (Hurray!)

Salted Egg Lava Croissant

This is Chef Pang Kok Keong's Salted Egg Lava Croissant. The browning of the dough is just perfect. (This was indoors taken without flash, so there's a tinge of warmness in the photo, this is as real as you can get when you dine there)  You can see the layerings and this was taken out fresh from the oven, so as you bite into it, it layers shatters as it should.

We were told it's made from French butter and it has been laminated and shaped in a controlled environment at 12 degrees Celsius. That is why we should leave the making of croissants to the experts. My sis and cousin have been planning to make their own and planning how to get the kitchen really cold and surface cold etc... So much planning.

If you wonder about the size, this is one huge croissant. It is served one croissant on a plate!
(For those who play the piano, it's about 1 octave plus around 2 white keys in width)

Salted Egg Lava Croissant

This silly boy wanted to take a photo in natural light to show you the colour of the croissant, so he sneaked out the bakery/restaurant with his plate.  Here you go, the colour from the Maillard reaction of the dough. Such nice browning. The layers too. This was 'sawn' using a serrated knife that's why it is so nicely cut. (Chef is not telling the temperature and time he took to bake it.)

The croissant filling that is 'lava-ly' (you can pronounced it as lovely too), is made from real natural egg yolks, sugar and milk. The colour is this because it is made from natural egg yolks. Most places that mass produced lots of 'liu sar' products will use egg yolk powder as it is easier and less time consuming.

If you have to take photo, you got less than a minute to do it if you want the lava to flow out. It will harden up as it turns cold!

Talking about time consuming, the salted egg yolk lava is hand-sieved to give it a smooth texture. If you have been watching lots of cooking show, you know those who wow-ed the judges always hand-sieved their mash potatoes etc.

Salted Egg Lava Croissant

Here you go, another shot to show you the 'lava' and also the air pockets in the croissants.
For those who love both croissant and anything salted egg yolk, you can try this.

The Salted Yolk Lava Croissant is made fresh daily in limited quantities (couple of hundreds at the moment). The croissant is priced at $6.50++ for dine-in and $6.50+ for take-away. I recommend you dine-in. You need to eat it warm so it's flaky and the filling still oozes!
