Lobster-lovers in Singapore do not stray away from Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar. Being the only restaurant that I know of in Singapore that serves a full (or half!) Boston Lobster at a fixed price, Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar introduces two new limited-time items to its existing menu.
Lobster Noodles (01 July to 31 July 2016 only)
Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar turns two years old (which is a huge deal in Singapore) this July 2016 and in conjunction of the month-long celebration, the restaurants has introduced a limited-time-only Lobster Noodles (S$58++) that is available in the month of July only (01 July to 31 July 2016). Chinese birthday celebrations are often associated to the crispy Sheng Mian (生面) which signifies longevity and Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar's version come with a whole lobster (yes a full Boston lobster for your enjoyment!) with shimeji white mushrooms, choy sum imported from Hong Kong and more importantly, a delicious lobster gravy that you'll fall in love with.
Lobster Laksa (01 August to 30 September 2016 only)
If for some reason, you can't make it to Pince & Pints in July 2016, head down in August or September to try the Lobster Laksa (S$29++). In conjunction with Singapore's 51st birthday this year, the Lobster Laksa plays homage to the ubiquitous laksa that most locals (and visitors!) love. Served with an intense laksa gravy that is made from lobsters, you will also find baby clams instead of cockles in this dish. The laksa comes with half a Boston lobster and is priced rather affordably if you are a lobster-lover!
Truffle Lobster Roll (Available All-year Round)
While you are there at Pince & Pints, you should also give the signature Truffle Lobster Roll (S$68++) a try to find out for yourself what made this place so popular. While it may not seem like you are getting a lot for that price, I assure you that you are getting a whole Boston lobster in that delicious roll - don't forget to dip those fries in that truffle butter sauce too! Even though there isn't a whole lot of items on the main menu but Pince & Pints has truly came up with a carefully-curated menu of lobster-inspired dishes that are all executed really well. If you are feeling thirsty, the restaurant also has a bar at the front where the mixologists concoct pretty interesting drinks!

Wah Lok at the Carlton Hotel Singapore is one of the most underrated restaurants in Singapore. Located on the second level of the hotel, Wah Lok serves up delicious Cantonese fare that had stood the test of time over the years.

The Conrad Tokyo is one of the most highly-rated hotels in the city of Tokyo - some of the rooms and suites overlooks the iconic Tokyo Bay and the Hamarikyu Gardens which is just stunning in the fall. When I visited Tokyo last month, I stayed in one of the Bay View Rooms with Executive Lounge access (from my Hilton HHonors Diamond Status) for two nights and during the stay, I took the opportunity to check out Kazahana (a Japanese restaurant within the Conrad Tokyo) which was easily one of the best meals that I have ever had in Tokyo.
Journey through Singapore's culinary heritage through a five-tier afternoon tea set at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore's Colony. Since its opening over a year ago, Colony has been on my list of favourite places to go to for lunch and dinner buffets - the quality superior, food is consistent and more importantly, the dining venue is extremely beautiful. Colony launches The Journey - a brand new afternoon tea experience that is available from Mondays to Saturdays from 3:30PM to 5:30PM.
Celebrating the Lunar New Year (2017) ahead at Pan Pacific Singapore's award-winning Hai Tien Lo is definitely a great idea.

I wrote about the new Chinese New Year (2017) dishes at the Conrad Centennial Singapore's Golden Peony restaurant and I actually got to sample some of these delicious creations last week during a media tasting of the menu. These dishes will be made available at Golden Peony between 10 January 2017 and 11 February 2017 - advance reservations are highly recommended to avoid disappointments.
