VivoCity #01-53, Scotts Square #03-04
Time to jiak-bah-bah and relish quintessential Teochew dishes like the Teochew Style Steamed Pomfret, Prawn Rolls and Orh Nee.
The chioh her here is steamed with the salted vegetables and tomatoes, purposefully kept simple to bring out the natural sweetness of the fish.
Other dishes you can look forward to include Sautéed Sliced Beef in Satay Sauce, Braised Trio Combination in Teochew Style, Pan-fried Oyster Omelette in Teochew Style, and Crispy Sweet and Sour Noodle in Teochew Style.

The go to place for ALL-DAY dim sum, roast specialties, Hong Kong style congee and noodles, and Cantonese wok-fried dishes.
The instagrammable Steamed Molten Salted Egg Yolk Custard Piggy Bun is almost too cute to eat, containing molten salted egg yolk lava, added with a touch of vanilla essence to enhance the taste of the filling.
Other than the dim sum, you can also go for the Handmade Meatball Congee.
Using a combination of Japanese pearl and Thailand fragrant jasmine rice, the velvety smooth and silky texture is a result of dedicated effort by the chefs who constantly stir the pot to ensure its uniformity. Canton Paradise (Marina Bay Sands)

BITP is where you can savour the essence of health and beauty in a hotpot, till very late at night.
There are six different nourishing soup bases with rich flavours and nutritional benefits, including Signature Beauty Collagen Broth, Vitamin C Tomato Sweet Corn Broth, Signature Spicy Nourishing Soup (Pork Bone Soup), Herbal Drunken Chicken Broth, and Cooling Coconut Broth.

Beauty in The Pot offers a variety of fresh ingredients ranging from meat and seafood to vegetables and noodles. All the meatballs, meat paste and dumplings are handmade.
Some of the must-try items include the melt-in-your-mouth Signature Homemade Fish Tofu, Ebiko Prawn Paste, Assorted Balls Platter, and Fried Beancurd Skin. Beauty In The Pot (Jewel Changi Airport)
Changi Airport Terminal 3 #03-32, Funan #B1-01, Wisma #01-18, Paya Lebar Quarter #03-08, Suntec City Mall, #B1-110, Westgate #02-13
Paradise Dynasty is best known to be the first to present these rainbow-hued xiao long bao, in flavours of original, ginseng, foie gras, black truffles, crab roe, cheese, garlic and Szechuan.
Their skin is decorated not by artificial colourings, but by natural ingredients such as carrot, spinach and red sorghum. The pork is distinctly tender due to the use of quality five-layer pork and pork neck.
In terms of noodles, the La Mian in Signature Pork Bone Soup served with Pan-fried Chicken Chop should not disappoint. Paradise Dynasty (Funan)
Resorts World Sentosa #B1-201, JEWEL Changi Airport #04-244, Marina Bay Link Mall #B2-20
Paradise Classic was rebranded from Paradise Inn, offering classic Chinese cuisine and nourishing traditional double-boiled soups.
Choose from some family favourites such as the Stewed Silver Needle Noodle with Salted Fish in Claypot, Braised Tofu with Crystal Prawn in Claypot, Steamed Fish Head with Spicy Bean Sauce, and you can end the meal with herb, floral, fruit-infused tea (to feel more cleansed).
For a signature dish recommendation, go for the Paradise Classic’s Espresso Chicken.
The dish contained deep fried chicken, still moist on the inside, coated with this sauce of unique flavour with light spiciness and conspicuous coffee aroma.
CompassOne Mall #03-05
Fan of Beauty in the Pot? You should like Paradise Hotpot as well, which is a Hong Kong style steamboat concept that offers each diner an individual hotpot with choice of a desire broth.
There are 14 different soup bases to choose from, such as Authentic Pork Bone, Century Egg with Coriander, Tomato with Sweet Corn, Teochew Style, Spicy Szechuan, Chicken with Wild Mushrooms, Thick Beef Bone, Tom Yum, Kelp and Bonito to Korean Kimchi Soup.
That’s plenty of choices.
The must-get ingredients for me are the Fried Beancurd Skin, Teochew Style Fish Paste, Assorted Balls Platter and US Angus Prime Short Ribs.
Le Shrimp Ramen
Changi Airport Terminal 3 #B2-49, Paragon #B1-42, VivoCity #B2-25, The Star Vista #02-024
Le Shrimp Ramen serves up a blend of Chinese and Japanese cultures, combining its two iconic food item: Chinese la mian and Japanese ramen broth.
It is the first of its kind creation. The ingredients used are simple yet the flavours are rich and elaborate, trademarks of Asian cuisines.
For the broths, they offer two specialties – shrimp broth and the Japanese-inspired tonkotsu broth.
If you prefer the shrimp broth, go for the Le Signature Trio Shrimp Ramen ($19.90), a piping hot bowl of shrimp extravaganza featuring the intensely prawn-flavoured broth.
The shrimp broth is specially prepared using big, fresh prawns, pork bones and Chinese spices. You can see in its tangerine-orange-ness how intensely flavourful the broth is. Le Shrimp Ramen (Orchard Paragon)
Bedok Mall #B2-10, Bugis Junction #B1-22, Changi Airport Terminal 3 Transit Area #02-28, CompassOne Mall #03-05, Funan #B1-22, JEM #B1-11, JEWEL Changi Airport #B4-244, VivoCity #02-91, Northpoint #B1-101, The Seletar Mall #03-10, Resorts World Sentosa #B1-201
LeNu serves up Lamian noodles in secret recipes broth that involves many hours of preparation from boiling to being served on the table.
The Premium Braised Beef Noodles was a warm and hearty bowl, made with rich beef stock that took 18 hours of preparation, added with blend of Chinese spices and beef slices, shank and tendon that were meltingly-tender.
Another popular choice is the Spicy Japanese Scallop Dry Noodle, tossed in a specially created sauce. I would recommend topping up for a bowl of pork bone soup rich in collagen.
