Last year when I first started this website, I checked out Hai Tien Lo's Weekend Dim Sum Buffet (since I happened to be staying at the property) and fell absolutely in love with it. Over time, the restaurant has become a popular haunt for me (and my family) to have quality dim sum for a really reasonable price.
Hai Tien Lo (海天楼) has just refreshed their Weekday Dim Sum Buffet (Monday to Friday only) with a generous selection of more than 30 items including double-boiled soups (which you have to try!), handmade dim sum as well as signature dishes. Curated jointly by reputable Master Chef Lai Tong Ping and Dim Sum Chef Lee Siaw Cheen (李小珍), the Weekday Dim Sum Buffet is priced reasonably at S$56++ per guest but you can easily get at least 10% back in dining rebates - find out how below!
Enjoy authentic Cantonese flavours with new culinary creations like the Steamed Minced Beef Dumplings with Ginger and Spring Onion and the Steamed Pork and Prawn Dumplings with Black Truffle (unlimited servings!). If you would like something a little more robust, check out one of Chef Lee's new creations - the Golden Deep-fried Prawn Paste with Wasabi Mayonnaise that is bursting with flavours. Other highlights in Hai Tien Lo's Weekday Dim Sum Buffet includes the Baked Barbecued Pork Pastry with Sesame and Five Spice Rolls with Minced Pork as well as signature staples like the Barbecued Crispy Roast Duck and the Stir-fried Carrot Cake with Signature Homemade XO Chilli sauce (another one of my favourites).
All diners will also be given a complimentary serving of the exquisite Chilled Homemade Bean Curd with Bird’s Nest during the Hai Tien Lo’s Weekday Dim Sum Buffet. Handmade from an old recipe, the silky smooth texture and the nutritious Bird's Nest (known for beauty purposes too) is the perfect end to this satisfying meal.

One of my favourite lunch spots around the City Hall and Promenade area is the Pacific Marketplace at the Pan Pacific Singapore. If you are ever searching for a spot that is comfortable, quiet and still serves delicious food, the Pacific Marketplace could be that dream destination. The menu here has just recently been refreshed to include new items that are inspired by cuisines from Hawaii, Europe and the Middle East (alongside the delicious Asian Delights that they already have).
Most people think about overpriced eggs and toasts when you mention brunch but the award-winning Keyaki in Pan Pacific Singapore has taken that typical expectation and transformed it into something amazing. The Bubbly Brunch at Keyaki runs every weekend and public holiday - it is priced from just S$75++ per adult for food only (the quality is truly amazing) and there is also a more indulgent option at S$135++ with free-flowing alcoholic beverages (which includes unlimited Laurent Perrier Brut NV Champagne, Mio Sparkling Sake, Akazaru Sparkling Shochu, Manzairaki Kaga Umeshu Soda, Tiger Beer as well as Red and White Wines).

I spent my Christmas Eve back in 2015 in the Pan Pacific Singapore's Pacific Harbour Studio which is easily one of the nicest rooms I have stayed in Singapore. In 2016, I decided that it would be a great idea to revisit the Pan Pacific Singapore's Harbour Studio (one that I used to stay quite a bit back in 2015) on Christmas Day since I had a long weekend away from work. Being a DISCOVERY Loyalty Black Member has its perks - your check-in documents are usually prepared beforehand and therefore you can generally bypass the snaking queues and get to your room (or suite!) a lot faster.
This Valentine's Day, indulge in the spirit of love as you enjoy a carefully-presented spread at the Pan Pacific Singapore's Edge.
