The Gong (by Drinks & Co) is newly established at Duo Galleria, just above Bugis MRT (DT-Line) via Exit D, along Rochor Road. Be greeted by hospitable service staff as you approach, and you have a choice between outdoor or indoor seating. Right next to the glass entrance, a good sized Gong is displayed. I’ll…
… cool to be chilling down at the Esplanade, have a meal or some drinks with your makan kakis, caressed by the marina breeze, attention interrupted by live band music from the amphitheater, and passing crowds.
The fun thing about fusion has an element of surprise, because apart from the obvious, none will ever know what to expect of the renditions of dishes listed.
Goldleaf Restaurant was founded in 1971 by a group of Singaporean businessmen who wanted to preserve the taste of old-school, family style Chinese cuisine. Once upon a time was located along Orchard Road, has been Original tenant at Katong Square (Old Joo Chiat Police Station) since 2016. For nearly 5 decades, Goldleaf has been faithfully…
Executive Chef Fung is the brainchild of this Canto style duck-centric concept, made possible by Kai Garden. Kai Duck is relatively new and offers a pretty comprehensive menu; selections of a la carte dishes, dim sum, duck specialties & desserts are good enough for a single diner up to a communion of 10pax, or more….

All in all, I find the ambiance to be somewhat calming, while the waiting staff are busily running the floor, I can see myself revisiting for sips on their cocktails, or feasting on their Classic Pizzas, especially the Margherita DOP, come to think of it, I shall try out their pastas too.
I’ve been an avid fan of the Original Zinger Burger since its inception in the 90s, and it’s been a mainstay on the menu all these years. When I caught wind of the Mighty Zinger Burger, I knew I had to give it a try.
It’s now the month of September, do check out the new September & October exclusive Pounder Burger. Yes, it’s not a quarter… it’s massive. The #pounderburgerchallenge starts on September 16 to October 11, 2019. Who knows, I just might be up for the challenge, maybe.
All in all, the experience at The Sampan was good. The service rendered is very personable, and the classic dishes rolled out & presented in ways never attempted before, is impressive. In terms of price & placement, I think is just about right. In fact, some of the dishes are good bang for buck.

These dishes are only prepared a la minute, so, do expect a bit of waiting time, subject to dining capacity & orders, estimate 15-20min perhaps.
