Imbi Nyonya Kuih stall is run by a friendly old couple assisted by their son. They sell 6 and only 6 items - yam cake, sago layered cake, kuih talam, kuih lapis, talam kacang merah and red bean soup. They are only open only 3 days a week, and do come early because the cakes are usually sold out within 2-3 hours.
When it comes to mooncakes, Grand Harbour restaurant favors using fine traditional ingredients and let the quality speak for itself. Their latest mooncake flavor - Golden Emerald Dates is named after red date which is also the featured ingredient in their Autumn Specials.
If you need a reason to hate Japanese food, just come to Saisaki for their Japanese buffet. They are right in calling themselves the Grand Father of Japanese Buffets because that's what they are: old, living on past glory and in need of serious revamps.
The long awaited durian season is finally here. Unfortunately, due to the freakishly hot weather earlier this year, the harvest for this season will be a lot lower and prices will be higher too.
