Legend Seafood (鸿宇海鲜馆) – Media Invite

Legend Seafood is a very young establishment that offers a slight twist to the typical Zi Char 煮炒 menu. Situated at New Century Food House (the arched coffee shop) along Bishan Street 11.

Legend Seafood operates for lunch & dinner till late daily. The bold attempt to innovate with ingredients, experimentation of tastes, I should think there will be more interesting dishes to be rolled out in due course.

(E)Xperience, the only source of knowledge – Media Invite

Xperience is orchestrated by the youngest hotel head chef in town: Executive Chef Trevor Paulo, and his crew, endeavors to push the boundaries & challenge culinary status quo in the dishes they roll out.

It is not every day that one gets to witness the process in an open kitchen with little or no boundaries. Watching the food prepared, plated & presented at the table, makes it somewhat cozier & personable. Artistic food, good quality at affordable pricing, makes for a go-to place for business lunch & dinner and/or hosting guests.

Ribena – Sparkling, not still

Ribena now comes fizzy. Wrapped in aluminum cans, 325ml of goodness. Fear not, the fizz isn’t intense enough to sprinkle the spectacle lenses, neither is it prickly for the palates. One of the lowest sugar levels compared to other fizzy drinks on the shelves, it’s an obvious choice for both young & young at heart.

Fumée by Habanos – Media Invite

Fumée is a spanking new multi-faceted wine & dine establishment brought to you by the founders of Habanos The Fine Cigar People (situated at Suntec City), Helen & Natalie. It has an alfresco terrace dining zone, spacious lounge area (entertained by live band performances Tuesdays onwards), high table & chair seating, a cozy chic dining zone, as well as a smoking gallery for cigar appreciation to boot.

All in all, Fumée is well positioned in many aspects of the operation, and the treats they have to offer on and off the menu.
