Local Food Tour

Post by jhkim » Wed, 07 Dec 2005 2:19 pm

Hi guys....I am planning to take a group of 15+ people from oversea on a local food tour on saturday evening. Do you guys know any local restaurants I can take them too?

It doesn't have to be fancy.....but hope it can sit 15+ people.

Rare or somewhat exotic food for the foreigner.....maybe famous dumpling house, noodle house only found in Singapore?

Thought about taking them to Newton and east Cost seafood but some of them have been here couple time so looking for something more local.

Thanks in advance....

I suppose the classic Dim Sum choice is Crystal Jade restaurant.

Am not too good with asian cuisine, but that was always a good place to have dim sum.
And the sultans - yeah the sultans

If I remember correctly, the Crystal Jade outlet at Suntec City is open in the evenings too.

If that restaurant is Crystal Jade at all - its been a long time since I worked at Suntec. :oops:

For Dim Sum, you may want to try this place called "Yum Cha" as well...and then you can bring them on a tour around Chinatown... :)

Having an website give me an impression that this is a high class dimsum restaurant. Can anyone tell how much Dim Sum would cost per person approximately on saturday night?

Hi, I wun consider Crystal Jade really as local food but more of chinese food. I do enjoy Crystal Jade myself - Crystal Jade Kitchen has nice dim sum tho selection is quite limited & I personally love Crystal Jade Xiao Long Bao & La Mien and the food is pretty reasonable. One bowl of beef brisket noodles cost around S$7 and the xiao long bao (dumplings) are about $3-4.

If you guys enjoy dim sum, you can also try fortunate restaurant @ Blk 181 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh #02-602. (tel 63631717). They haf a great selection and its pretty affordable too, push cart style approx $15 per pax. Yum Cha's price is slightly more steep tho ultimately it still depends on the items you order.

For local food, I would recommend non aircon places like Geylang, Chinatown smith street, ChompChomp @ Serangoon or Newtown Circus. However since there's a huge group.. perhaps Seafood @ East Coast might be better.

Here's a few choices:

Opps I guess I'm a lil late...

Thanks a lot for the great information. The outing was delayed to next saturday~

Dim Sum at toa Payoh sounds great....I will try to reduce the group size.

Worst case we are hitting Newton again.
