Hello Everyone,
as you can see from the topic of this blog entry itself, yes, it’s all going to be about food but for this particular blog entry, the photos that are published here were taken using the LG Optimus 4X HD Smartphone!

So anyway, in conjunction with the Singapore Food Festival that is organised by the Singapore Tourism Board, 313@somerset is presenting a month-long celebration of food, entertainment and shopping from July 27 to August 31 at the Discovery Walk, Level 1 of 313@somerset. This event is none other than the, “Let’s Talk About Food”. As part of the Let’s Talk About Food event, a series of exciting themed acts and performances have been lined up; so if you happen to be at 313@somerset on 3-4 August, 8 Aug, 24-25 Aug from 6pm onward, be sure not to miss these whimsical performers! The best part about Let’s Talk About Food is that during this period, you can definitely look forward to indulging in your favourite dishes at significantly discounted prices and I really mean it!

Here’s why; 313@somerset is launching the exclusive 313 Dining Wallet where you can purchase it for just $19 and inside this 313 Dining Wallet, it contains $40 worth of dining vouchers that you can use at selected Food & Beverage [F&B] outlets. Now that’s really something you ought to consider because you pay half price for the value that you are getting! However, this promotion is only valid till 31 August 2012 so be sure you don’t miss out on this awesome deal.

The vouchers that are inside the 313 Dining Wallet are, $5 Coffee Bean Voucher, $5 Famous Amos Voucher, $10 The Flying Bread Voucher, Lunch Voucher, Drink Voucher, Snack Voucher, and Dinner Voucher! For the vouchers that have cash value such as the Coffee Bean Voucher, the Flying Bread Voucher, and the Famous Amos Voucher, all you have to do is to use the vouchers at their outlet respectively and use it to purchase whatever food you are planning to purchase.

Thanks to OMY.SG and the team from Land Lease, I was part of a group of 20 bloggers whom were given the opportunity to taste some of the food that the participating F&B outlets have to offer.

We started off at the Basement 3 Food Hall where we sampled some snacks and light-bites from Jollibean, Umi Sushi, The Flying Bread, and Paradise Inn.

Hello Everyone,
today, I will be blogging [in detail] about my dining experience at Paradise Inn @ GreenwichV.

Personally, I have frequented Paradise Inn [Serangoon NeX and GreenwichV] a couple of times but I haven’t got the chance to really blog about my dining experience there except for a short write-up during the GreenwichV Blogger’s Amazing Race.

So, here’s how my dining experience went.

The dinner at GreenwichV Paradise Inn was planned for quite sometime already and it was hosted by Baby’s sister, Jasmine. When we were there, many tables have already been reserved so it is strongly recommended that you make a reservation in advance, especially if you are planning to dine in big groups. What I really like about the Paradise Inn Outlet at GreenwichV is the Alfresco dining area because it is quite scenic given the green surroundings. Even the dining wares have a certain elegance and class to it.

The brand of dining wares they used are known as Luzerne [similar to the ones that even five-stars hotels use]

Well, for appetisers, we were served a small dish of braised peanuts and I don’t really have any comments on it because I personally felt that the taste was quite standard.

From Paradise Inn 2012

Besides chewing the peanuts while waiting for our dishes, we got so bored that we decided to take photos of ourselves.

As always, when I eat, I always look very “buay song” until…

From Paradise Inn 2012

I find something better to do [like checking out Facebook] when waiting for my food.

From Paradise Inn 2012

Here are the 11 dishes of food that we ordered for a table of 6 people.

Seafood Fried Rice [with Roe]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Wasabi-Mayonnaise Prawns [personally, I find this dish rather unique and I quite like the Wasabi-Mayonnaise. However, comparing this with the Salted Egg Prawns, I would prefer the Salted Egg Prawns.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Salted-Egg Prawns [I highly recommend this dish if you are looking for something that is unique in taste.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Stewed Dong Po Pork [this dish was quite flavourful but is also quite fattening too.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Boiled Apple Pork Soup [I’m not sure if its apple or pear that they boil that made the soup slightly sweet in taste.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Crisp-Fried Shrimp Paste Chicken [this is one of their specialties but to be honest, I find it quite salty for my liking.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Steamed Cod Fish with Sauce [this is absolutely quite a healthy dish and it is highly recommended to those who fancy Cod Fish.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Hot Plate Tofu with Minced Pork and Mushroom [quite average I would say.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Cai Xin [vegetables were slightly tough to chew and looks rather green.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Fried Ngoh Hiang [fried to perfection and is easy to chew on. Very flavourful and goes well with the sweet sauce.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

Fried Noodles [not really that fantastic but it’s still edible.]

From Paradise Inn 2012

At the end of the day, despite the hefty bill of $248++, we totally enjoyed the companionship of one another. However, much could be done to improve on the food quality because either they are too salty or they are just average. The service was excellent and the service staffs were very polite and helpful.

If you’re looking for a suitable restaurant [that serves Chinese cuisine] for your family gatherings/reunions, you might want to consider Paradise Inn. They have 13 outlets at various locations all over Singapore so do check them out.

Stay tuned to more updates from us!

God bless!
