Most Sought After Neapolitan Woodfired Pizza loved by LA Celebrities comes to Singapore - First 800° Woodfired Kitchen in SEA #800degreesSG



Pizza lovers have something new to look forward to! Homegrown Deelish Brands, Singapore’s pioneer of halal fast-casual chain restaurants who first brought us Fatburger, debuts one of America’s most exciting woodfired oven pizza chains in Singapore. 

800° Woodfired Kitchen – which boasts Miami Heat mega-stars Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem as owners – brings a taste of authentic Neapolitan-style woodfired pizza to Singapore.  The location also includes the first 800° cafe in the world.

“Deelish Brands has a mission of being the customer’s #1 choice for trendy halal food,” says Deelish Brands Group CEO Moe Ibrahim. “This is why we’re taking brands that are loved in the West, adapting them for the rapidly growing halal consumer base, and launching authentic versions of them here at home in Singapore. 800° Woodfired Kitchen uses only the freshest ingredients of the highest quality, a belief that I fervently share and which will appeal to discerning diners in Singapore.”


800° Woodfired Kitchen – Taste the Magic of Woodfired

Established by award-winning American chef Anthony Carron, 800° Woodfired Kitchen is founded upon principles such as using the highest quality ingredients, in addition to having a wonderful ambiance and a superior guest experience.


The perfect pizza starts with the best Neapolitan flour, imported from Naples, Italy. The flour is custom milled with high protein content, resulting in an elastic dough for that perfect crust. The highlight is the wood-fired oven, which brings the cooking temperature as high as 800° Fahrenheit, or 420° Celsius, resulting in that beautiful leopard print char on the crust. 800° Woodfired Kitchen uses a blend of various types of wood to infuse each pizza with a unique smoky taste. As the oven is continually seasoned with use, you can expect the individually shaped pizzas to taste even better over time.


Available in 10” or 14” sizes, 800° Woodfired Kitchen’s pizzas come on three options of pizza bases – Margherita (red sauce), Pesto (Verde sauce), or if you prefer no sauce at all, the Bianca (white base). Each pizza comes with the highest quality Italian mozzarella as well as torn pieces of fresh mozzarella balls to give each pizza a beautiful artisanal look.

Each pizza can be customized with a wide array of premium toppings, which include several proteins such as beef pepperoni, beef salami, Philly beefsteak, beef meatballs, and prawns. Fresh vegetables offered include cherry tomatoes, jalapeno, green pepper, pineapple, and more before you top it off with after-bake extras like arugula and even a whole burrata. 

If picking your own toppings sounds like too much work, choose one of the specialty pizzas, which includes the Spicy Meatball, the Philly Cheesesteak, BBQ Chicken, Pesto Chicken, and the amazing Tartufo (a scrumptious truffle mushroom pizza).


The other signature – Rotisserie Chicken

800° Woodfired Kitchen’s succulent roasted chicken is the result of a two-day process that begins with freshly cooked vegetable stock for the brine. The fresh chickens, never frozen, are brined and then marinated in our proprietary blend of herbs and spices. The hardest part may be choosing from the homemade sauces, with six options such as Peruvian Green, Truffle Ranch and Smokey BBQ, and four decadent sides that include Mac & Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, Butter Corn, or Garlic Butter Rice to complete the meal.

Salads and appetizers make for a light compliment to your meal, as they range from the Perfect Caesar to Homemade Meatballs. The 800° Café that accompanies the space will complement the menu with cake and drinks, appealing to guests who drop by at all times of the day.




All of 800° Woodfired Kitchen’s recipes are derived from its Clean Eating Promise, written from its belief that food should nourish the body and the soul while respecting our shared environment. To that end, it practices careful sourcing of ingredients, the use of local and organic produce whenever possible, cooking with only extra virgin olive oil, and ample vegetarian options. With the addition of halal fast-casual chain operation experience in Singapore, diners are assured of the highest standards when it comes to natural flavors and great techniques.

Lobster feast and Famous Ipoh Moonlight Hor fun in Singapore - Beast & Butterflies and Ipoh Tuck Kee Son 怡保德记仔炒粉

 



I was at M SOCIAL SINGAPORE recently for a staycation and thought of dining at Beast & Butterflies which is just conveniently at the first level.  I am a huge lobster fan and they have what I love.

LOBSTER PORRIDGE
Teochew-style lobster rice porridge in crab broth, baby abalone, crispy conpoy, bonito flakes, fried shredded ginger, and scallion. This was a Teochew porridge with crab broth poured over rice. The lobster meat is generously portioned and served in a huge stone pot. The broth was bursting with the fresh sweetness of the crab. so umami! 

3 CUP LOBSTER IN CLAYPOT
Wok-fried rock lobster, rice wine, thai basil leaves, sesame oil, and steamed rice. This was a unique way to cook lobster. If you didn't know, they replaced the chicken in the three-cup chicken (三杯鸡) with Maine lobster. The name three-cup chicken comes from the three key ingredients in the recipe which are Sesame oil, Chinese rice wine, and Soy sauce. The dish was fragrant but tbh, the sauce was too salty...The lobster was good though!

LOBSTER BISQUE
creamy emulsion with diced lobster. creamy goodness! so good! there was a good amount of succulent lobster meat inside.

Ipoh Tuck Kee Son menu

Ipoh Tuck Kee Son 怡保德记仔炒粉 is so famous that we waited for very long, probably close to an hour before the plate of moonlight hor fun came to our table. This stall is opened by the third generation of tuck kee thus there's a son at the back of the stall name. The original stall in Ipoh is very well-known and is on many must-visit lists. 

The Moonlight hor fun was served with a raw egg on top, tossed in a black savory sauce, and pork lard. We could taste the wok hei but felt that the raw egg wasn't enough to coat the entire plate for the large size portion. Each plate is also individually fried so waiting can be long and also the quality is ensured this way as well. I feel that this one puts up a close fight to KEK Keng Eng Kee Seafood.
Also if you didn't know Why this is called Moonlight hor fun, The egg yolk is supposed to reflect the brightly lit full moon, while the noodles are supposed to represent a glistening river.

We also ordered the Fried Mee Tai Mak which is fried in the same sauce as hor fun with pork lard as well. this was so good too even though it is not the recommended dish to order.

Sushi Tei Unveils Blossoms of Joy Spring Menu, with Camellia Buri and Satsuma Wagyu Beef as Highlights

 


Springtime in Japan always promises such picturesque sights, with the roads and streets being blanketed by cherry blossoms. Inspired by this lovely season, Sushi Tei is launching a spring menu, bringing a taste of Japan right to you! Made with fresh produce, the artfully plated seasonal dishes invite the whole family to dig in and indulge. 

Begin with an exquisite offering — the Truffle Foie Gras Chawanmushi (S$12.80). Pan-fried foie gras is encased within the wobbly egg custard. Then, it is drizzled with truffle oil, whose aroma wafts through the air. 

The Sashimi Moriawase "Goto" 4 Kinds (S$29.80) brims with camellia buri, salmon, sweet shrimp, and swordfish. Camellia buri is a farm-raised fish that comes from Kamigoto Island, Nagasaki. The Japanese amberjack is fed a diet that is enriched with camellia oil. This oil is a good source of oleic acid, which helps to lower cholesterol and promote skin repair. 

Bara Chirashi Tower


Truffle Satsuma Wagyu Steak Foie Gras 

Get ready your camera for the arrival of the Bara Chirashi Tower (S$15.80), whose excellent presentation is Instagram worthy. The classic chirashi don takes on the form of a tower — it is stacked with avocado, sweet shrimp, and vinegared sushi rice. The treasure of camellia buri, along with an assortment of sashimi, is hidden within this tower as well!

Another showstopping dish is the Satsuma Wagyu Steak Foie Gras (S$33.80). Satsuma Wagyu is produced by Mizusako Farm, one of the largest black cattle breeding farms in Japan. The cattle are fed a special diet of roasted soybeans, which give the meat an exceptional flavor profile and tenderness. This beef is accompanied by a shooter glass of truffle steak sauce.

Kaisen Blossom Roll 

Edamame Cream Puff 

The indulgence continues with the White Curry Omurice (S$15.80). A tomato omelet drapes the fried rice, which is set in a pool of Hokkaido-style white curry. Chunks of carrots lend a delightful sweetness to the fried rice. Slices of fried Kagoshima pork belly are then added for a hearty finish. With one bite of the Kaisen Blossom Roll (S$14.80), you will taste different layers of flavors. This crunchy fried salmon sushi roll is topped with an assortment of seafood including camellia buri as well as briny caviar and cod roe mayonnaise. 

Finally, cap off the meal with the Edamame Cream Puff (S$7.80). This sweet-savory dessert is air-flown directly from Japan. The delicate and airy puffs are filled with luscious cream that boasts bits of edamame beans!

Japanese Style Cafe, Burger Bar By World’s Best Restaurant's Chef and Sakura themed dessert in Singapore - Pantler, Carne Singapore and JW360

I visited Pantler last year. They have recently moved to River Valley! It is so much spacious now with more seatings inside and alfresco seatings as well. Had to order their new Strawberry tart coz I loved the one with pistachio. 

Quite a nice place to chill with a cup of iced latte and dessert. The strawberry featured a heart-shaped macaron with their usual Chitose strawberries, lingonberries perched atop a buttery tart base. The strawberries were brushed with a coating of strawberry jam too. As a strawberries lover, I freaking love this. so good!

Opening Hours: 10.30am - 6.30pm
Closed on Monday


CARNE Singapore is opened by Mauro Colagreco who is behind 3 stars Michelin Restaurant Mirazur in France. Knowing this, I had to try their burger! 

I ordered the complete burger which comes with a Butter bun, natural grass-fed beef, local oak lettuce, organic tomato, organic red onion, pickled organic cucumber, crispy smoked hormone-free bacon, cheddar cheese, and a fried egg. The texture of this butter bun is wonderfully soft and fluffy and the beef is so tender and juicy. I think it's medium-rare. So good!!!

Opening Hours: 8am - 11pm


Saw that JW360 「Japan Way Three Sixty」 had the Cherry Blossoms Set 🌸 which includes their Sakura White Chocolate Cake, Sakura Latte, and Sakura Gelato – all at a bundle price of $18.30. Gotta get it as I was at Jewel Changi Airport. Available till the end of April. 

The Sakura White Chocolate Cake consists of an interlayer of pistachio sponge cake, cherry blossom white chocolate, and berry compote. There was a layer of glaze that made this dessert incredibly sweet. The Sakura latte was kind of diluted and the Sakura Gelato was just too sweet as well.
Luckily I shared this with 2 other friends because sweetness must be shared. 😅
