Rich & Good Cake Shop - Pandan Kaya Roll

Pandan and Durian Rolls
Light and fluffy swiss roll with a thick layer of pandan kaya.  I like it when it is served chilled, the pandan kaya taste like ice cream as it is so rich and creamy.  The shop serves a variety of rolls but I like the pandan kaya roll best.
The secret to their yummy rolls is that they go to the market daily to pick up fresh ingredients like pandan leaves.  It can't get fresher than that.

Canton-i Best Xiao Long Bao (Steamed Shanghai Soup Dumplings) in Singapore

On my quest to find the best Xiao Long Bao in Singapore ... I have to say Canton-i at Ion Orchard has to be it.   D is a connoisseur of Xiao Long Bao - he too agreed that these were pretty darn good.  The skin is thin and smooth, the meat is melt in your mouth tasty and filled with plenty of meaty soupy goodness inside.   
Glutinous Rice, BBQ Pork Noodles, Roast Meats

Topped off the meal with my favourite mango sago with pomelo but with a twist.  They froze the mango and blended into a smoothie.  The perfect end to the perfect meal.  

I would definitely come back for the Xiao Long Bao, the glutinous rice and the mango sago.  The roast meats and noodle were good but not outstanding and I wouldn't crave for them.

East Coast Lagoon Food Village - Singapore

East Coast Park is a good place to get some exercise be it jogging, roller blading, cycling or just walking.    Most of the time there is a fresh sea breeze too.  

To cap off all that hard work, there is a food centre by the lagoon that serves up good food.  During Chinese New Year though, only a few stalls were open but we managed to get sambal stingray ( I think it is very similar to skate)  This fleshy fish is easy to eat as the meat slides right off the bones.  It is often served BBQ on a banana leaf ( I believe this increases its flavour) with sambal chilli sauce and lime.  If you can't stand spicy food, wash it down with fresh coconut juice.

We also managed to get some friend Hokkien Mee which is fried yellow noodles with vermicelli tossed with prawn, squid and fish cake.   It is usually served with lime and chilli sambal sauce.  The best ones are fried with pork lard in a very very hot wok that gives that noodles a very distinctive taste that the cantonese call "wok hei" - the smell of the wok.  Eat up all that crispy pork fat goodness.
