The Cathay Restaurant @ The Cathay


Bf introduced me to this dim sum place! He gets very excited about his Chinese food and we definitely have this every time he’s back in Singapore. This was our last lunch date together before he flew.

We like coming here because it is a clean, white, crisp setting with good service and real quality dim sum! It’s highly affordable also. Make a booking for weekends though it gets packed!



From bottom left, clockwise: Siew Mai, Chicken Feet, Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun, Scallop Dumplings, Fu Pei Quin (Prawn in Beancurd Skin). All very good renditions! LOVE how the prawns they use are huge and fresh. Generosity is always something to applaud 😉


This is slightly different from what you’ll find in Crystal Jade, Imperial Treasure etc. The beancurd skin is thicker as there are more layers, and it’s fried such that it’s almost like crackers. Rather than the slightly chewy beancurd skin you get usually.



Liu Sha Bao! Custard buns! Are they delicious?




Yes they are very delicious. Perfectly molten, very smooth custard and egg yolk, balanced flavours with neither being too overpowering. The bun is fluffy and slightly sweet too, so it all comes together. One of my favourite places to have LIUSHABAO!

These are fireworks from National Day! Which was 2 months ago 🙂 Bf and I squeeeezed through the huge crowd to get a nice spot to watch fireworks and this is the second time we’ve done it! We were dreaming about how we can watch fireworks in the comfort of one of the lush hotel rooms next time! But for now, we are content with being sticky and sweaty and being oblivious to the crowds as we enjoy the sight together. Absolutely love watching the fireworks explode (cue Katy Perry song heehee). How time fliessss by. Such a pretty sight, hang in there everyone, the weekend is nearing! 🙂
