Shi Lin

Shi Lin

Shi Lin had its branch in Podium for a while now and I’ve always been looking at it as I pass by wondering if it was the right time to come back. Its red logo and white letters give a sense of foreboding. Xiao Long […]

Char Express + Bake + Stockwell

Char Express + Bake + Stockwell

A newly opened food hall at the Podium Mall, Corner Market, is starting to gain traction with its various food selection from every imaginable cuisine. After roaming the food hall, I was literally overwhelmed. I didn’t know what to eat haha but I decided on […]

Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty

Before working on this review, I had to read back to all the Xiao Long Bao posts I did in the past months and check if those were properly rated. Because when I saw my dim sum served to me, I knew in an instant […]

Tai Koo HK Roast

Tai Koo HK Roast

There aren’t a lot of restaurants here serving roast duck (or I just haven’t searched enough). It’s a good thing I don’t have to look far and wide for it, like going to Chinatown maybe? Haha because a new restaurant just opened in Podium! Tai […]

Ban Dao Pearl Restaurant

We visited this restaurant after remembering that Grand Convention  Center has once again opened its door to the locals after its very busy renovation that lasted for a few months. The new place had a contemporary new look updated to the times, with several lighting […]

My sister and I visited this place yesterday when we were looking for a decent cabinet for her room. We did find one at Metro and had it delivered to our flat. I skipped my breakfast that time, so by the time we finished at […]

Fung’s

Fung’s

As we were waiting for Phat Pho to open, We visited Fung’s which is technically a store away from the place we wanted to try out. It was a spacious place, with several chairs and tables arranged in a typical Chinese fashion. Interestingly, this noodle […]
