Halal certified restaurants are hard to come by, especially one that served really good quality dishes for its diner everyday at affordable prices. 1 Market is helmed by Chef Wan; a truly celebrity chef from Malaysia that is featured in international programmes such as National Geographic Channel. This is not my first time dining at 1 Market as I have dined here with my Muslim colleagues before. And in the month of Ramadan, many Muslim friends come here to break fast (evening) together with their non-Muslim friends. I really like the idea that people of different races come together to learn more about one another’s culture. A common misconception is that people may think that a Halal restaurant will have many malay dishes, but once you step into 1 Market, you will realise that the spread is truly international. To top it all, they have a wide spread of fresh, juicy and decadent seafood for everyone to enjoy.

Just last week, I was invited to the newly renovated Joyden Seafood (previously known as West Coast Seafood) which is located at West Coast Recreational Centre. Although with a short ten years of history, the restaurant has many signature favourites that has definitely left a deep impression on me. One interesting thing to note is that the experienced team of chefs that has been instrumental to the growth of the restaurant have been with the restaurant since its popularity ten years ago. Unlike most restaurants where there is a Executive Chef, each of their chef have their individual speciality. That is probably why each and every dish is very well executed. This is probably one of the best Chinese meal I have in recent times.

MEDZS at Millenia Walk recently revamped its kitchen to include Asian cuisine into its menu to allow diners a more holistic experience that allows them to dine with more choices including a number of popular Asian dishes. Now it is East meets West under one roof, combining the expertise of western dining into Asian cuisines. Whenever I am in a big group, there tend to be people who has different taste buds, so the new addition means less headache because if one does like Mediterranean food, there are more choices that are available!

It has been a good 10 years that Crystal Jade offers its popular Korean cuisine – namely the Korean Ginseng Chicken and Korean BBQ treats. Diners can continue to be pampered by its comforting Korean cuisine in its newly relocated premise to Basement 2 in Ngee Ann City (more affectionately known as Takashimaya). The new outlet is spanking new and more cosy for diners. The restaurant also now offer new healthy and wholesome dishes such as the pictured Korean Imperial Hotpot with Assorted Vegetable ($39 per serving) that comes with a choice of beef, pork or chicken. I had the kimchi broth which has been laboriously prepared through slow boiling over a few days to render the thick and rich flavour. Good for 2-4 person per serving, order some fresh Korean Handmade Noodles ($3/ serving) for a complete experience.

One of our local favourite restaurant Dian Xiao Er has partnered with the Health Promotion Board to provide healthier dishes to fit the need of higher demand for healthier options. Dian Xiao Er is also amongst the pioneer to switch over to rice bran oil; with multiple benefits such as high in anti-oxidants, Vitamin E and cholesterol-inhibiting compounds such as phytosterol. You would think that healthier option would means less tasting. This certainly is a myth especially after sampling their many dishes which are still as yummy as it is before. For instance, their signature Herbal Roast Duck; with either Angelica Herb, Ten Wonder or Wild Ginseng sauce; taste just as good as before. Now healthier options came in same great taste and is a good news for all.
