Foodie Friday: What The Stars Ate This Week (Sep 3-10)
All the photos that made us hungry this week.
This week, Fann Wong and Zed celebrated Christopher Lee's return over yakitori, Chen Xiuhuan cooked up a storm for Yvonne Lim, Zoe Tay treated The Heartland Hero crew to a lok lok feast, and Candyce Toh and her daughter Azalea couldn't be more excited to indulge in their Hello Kitty-themed meal. Read on for more.
What she ate: Yakitori
Yummy factor: With hubby Christopher Lee back in Singapore, the reunited family of three headed out to have Zed’s favourite yakitori at a cosy looking Japanese restaurant. And of course, the boy had to have at least two skewers in hand for their family wefie shot. Cute.
What they ate: Fried bee hoon
Yummy factor: Check out that beautiful mess. Chantalle and Felicia couldn't be happier to dig in to the huge breakfast of economic bee hoon, thanks to their Leave No Soul Behind co-star Brandon Wong. Talk about starting one’s day on the right noods.
What she ate: Peranakan food
Yummy factor: Yes, although Sharon is back in Paris, she’s still having her fix of Peranakan fare at her go-to cafe, The Hood — think hearty offerings like fried chicken, nasi lemak and nasi ulam, and even nyonya kueh like kueh salat. It’s like she never left home.
What they ate: Kong bak pau and laksa
Yummy factor: Knowing full well how much Yvonne loves local flavours, Xiuhuan decided to make a mouthwatering spread of braised pork belly to enjoy with steamed mantous, as well as laksa with plenty of blood cockles for her and hubby Alex Tien, as well as Hong Huifang and Zheng Geping.
What they ate: Lok lok
Yummy factor: A most generous Ah Jie treated her fellow The Heartland Hero co-stars like Paige Chua and Jernelle Oh to platters of skewered goodness from Lok Bu Lok Bistro. And this is just a portion of the spread. We have our eye on the fried vegetarian goose, mantou, and rolled pork belly strips.
What they ate: Comfort food
Yummy factor: It’s been a while since the While We Are Young co-stars got to catch up, and they finally managed to do so this week over what looks like fusion Japanese fare. And with every proper brunch sesh, fries are always a must — fancy toppings are a bonus.
What she ate: All things Hello Kitty
Yummy factor: For Candyce and her daughter Azalea, who are ardent fans of Hello Kitty, dining at Kumoya’s Hello Kitty shabu shabu restaurant pop-up probably felt like a dream come true. After all, the whole experience was dedicated to the popular character, from the hotpot ingredients to the desserts and even tableware.
What she ate: Scissors curry rice
Yummy factor: Despite being a huge foodie, this is the first time Jade is having scissors curry rice. Fun fact: Jade likes her food neatly presented, and the mountain of ingredients and curry on rice was a bit much for her OCD. Nonetheless, the glorious “mess” of pork chop, tau pok, fried egg and fish cake proved to be a delicious mix with the flavourful curry.
What they ate: Lu rou fan
Yummy factor: Would Gini and Herman make a great culinary team? Well, the duo seem promising enough on their #JustSwipeLah appearance together. Though Gini faced a few hiccups, no thanks to Herman, the Taiwanese-style braised pork rice, which she whipped up using this 8days.sg recipe, looks pretty legit. Watch #JustSwipeLah to see what went down in their cooking challenge.
What he ate: Home-cooked delights
Yummy factor: Dinner at a friend’s place was so delicious, Thomas believed he could leave this world with no regrets. On the menu were smoky grilled ribs, a citrusy prawn salad, more plump grilled sausages, and what looks like decadent squares of brownies. Yum.
What they ate: Nasi lemak
Yummy factor: Check out the nasi lemak platter Cynthia and Sheryl had at farm-to-table concept bistro Bollywood Veggies — there’s blue pea coconut-infused rice, sambal goreng, curry chicken, otah tempura and more to go with crispy keropok. They ended the meal on a sweet note with banana cake and coffee.
What she ate: Bak kut teh
Yummy factor: Despite feeling a little under the weather, Lina’s husband insisted on having a lunch date with her at Sin Heng Claypot Bak Kut Teh to celebrate their 21st anniversary over simple but hearty fare of tender ribs in herbal broth, braised pig trotters, dough fritters, and more.
What she ate: Luxurious eats
Yummy factor: Joanna spent a leisurely afternoon savouring delectable bites at the three-Michelin-starred Odette, where she enjoyed exquisite dishes like trout tacos, pepper-crusted pigeon, show-stopping marukyo uni topped with gold Kristal caviar, and more.
What she ate: White Rabbit lolly
Yummy factor: Fellow 933 DJ Zhu Zeliang surprised Hazelle with a treat she couldn’t resist — a White Rabbit ice lolly brimming with nostalgic flavour. A most excited Hazelle just had to do a taste test immediately, and she how loved how the chewy treat reminded her of her favourite childhood sweet.
What she ate: Dumplings
Yummy factor: Tracy got busy making a whole tray of dumplings for lunch, and boy did the little plump goodies look yummy after being steamed, tossed in sauce and served with mushrooms and greens.
What she ate: Weekend brunch at Neptune cafe
Yummy factor: For You Yi, having a wholesome weekend brunch is a form of self-love, especially when we’re talking house-made beef balls with herbed mushrooms and cream sauce with toast, crunchy burnt brussels sprouts and a strong cuppa.
What he ate: Sumptuous meal
Yummy factor: Good food puts Nick in a good mood, especially when he’s had a comforting bowl of pumpkin soup and fresh crispy-skin sea bass. And since he was at Wine Connection, of course he had to enjoy a glass of wine too.
What she ate: Homemade udon
Yummy factor: From what we can tell, Constance seems pretty impressed with her own cooking — a hearty bowl of what looks like udon served with an egg (could it have a molten yolk?), tempura prawn, and savoury Japanese-style garnish.
What she ate: Rosti
Yummy factor: Because both Aden and Avery are such huge fans of crisp rosti, the Swiss dish has practically become a staple in the Chen home. This time, Kate made some for the kiddos to go with pan-fried salmon and steak, as well as stir-fried greens and mushrooms for a balanced meal.
