Hot May Pot Pot

Since Aadam has been born, I’ve found it progressively more difficult to take him out to restaurants as he has gotten older. We still do manage to go out but dinner time has become much, much earlier – I’m talking 5/5:30 early – and the type of restaurants have shifted from swanky places to restaurants […]

Halal Food in Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall

Bang Bang Oriental food hall has been open for just shy of couple of years, but what exactly is it? To put it simply, it is one humongous hall filled with over 27 food and drink stalls – count me in! Although it would be amazing if EVERYTHING was halal, this is sadly not the […]

PEKING GARDEN

Peking Garden

Without knowing it, BW and I have always been connected one way or another throughout our lives. From being at the same wedding functions to even living around the corner from one another, we never knew each other existed until the day we were introduced. Which brings me to Peking Garden, our local Chinese restaurant […]

Etles Uyghur

Last November, I was invited out to Ningxia in Northern China. I can see you guys rolling your eyes thinking, “we know, you haven’t stopped reminding us!”, but it was truly one of the best trips of my life. Asides from being mesmerised by the landmarks and the ways of the Hui Muslims out there, […]

Buddha Bar

Although 99% of my reviews are dinners with BW, I want to make it clear that we do have friends and do enjoy other people’s company too. Now, we do have a fairly meaningful age gap between us, which has yielded limited options in terms of other couples to hang out with. Thankfully, over the […]

P.F. Chang’s

When P.F. Chang’s first hit the halal scene in London, I kept a close eye on the general reception to the restaurant. They seemed to be getting a warm welcome by the Muslim community, which was good, but I decided to wait it out. Over a matter of weeks, I started to read review after review singing it’s […]

Guan Chua’s Nyonya Supper Club

Since I was a young’un, Mum and Dad have always been warning me about ‘stranger danger’, and specifically that even if the stranger offered me the most delicious treat, do not get in his van. Suddenly the internet was born, and it became cautions about ‘online stranger danger’. Fast forward about 15 years, and here I […]

Sheng High

I’m sure you all know me by now, and my excitement when it comes to anything food-related that is different, and most importantly halal. Of course, with halal restaurants these days, we’re still stuck on the burger wave so I’ve turned my attention to street food stalls who offer interesting and exotic dishes, such as […]

Chi Kitchen

When it comes to holidays or short breaks, BW and I are really, REALLY last minute. I’m talking about booking a weekend trip on the Thursday before we go kind of last minute. Some of you are probably thinking “aw, you guys are so spontaneous”, no! These trips have been decided weeks and even months […]

C&R Restaurant

**THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED** So sometimes I’m not the sharpest crayon in the box, or that is what BW says – how rude. But recently, it may have been deservedly so. My camera SD card decided to stop working and naturally, I hadn’t gotten round to uploading alllllllll the photos onto my computer. All […]
