Baked Apple Tart @ Bakerzin UE Square

1. I have been “Cowboy Calebed”.

2. Check out the “Funky Chefs”, Tony and Melvyn – interested in quality, not quantity. Smaller party sizes are the key; they do sit down meals for up to 25 people. It is approximately $80 per pax depending on the menu and number of people.

3. Have you join the Singapore Food Blogger group in Facebook?

4. There is a new outlet at UE Square consisting of a children’s kitchen for kids to take part in baking lessons - pro-family! It is here I discovered my latest favourite dessert after their signatured Warm Chocolate Cake – I hereby present to you – the delicious Baked Apple Tart ($9.50), consisting of Caramelised Apple Slices baked to golden hue on a light Puff Pastry along with a dollop their very own Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

A heavenly combination of sweet and sour, light and creamy, & warm and cold that evokes conflicting emotions in a good way. I foresee this will be a hit among the non-chocolate lovers and those who enjoy the apple crumble. Enjoy your long weekend!

I happen to enjoy honest restaurant reviews. Too many food bloggers are being too lenient. Half the food reviews I've read are total hogwash. Thanks for alerting mankind about Chef Chan.

Oh speak of the devil - heh!

Thanks and welcome to my humble blog.

Being frank is something I am known for, and that is how I wanted to set the tone for this blog - so that my readers can only hear the truth and nothing but the truth. :)

Surprised that some of the comments are so negative . Since the opening we have been regulars there , almost 2 to 3 times a week ! The reason is we simply enjoy his passionate cooking , we can feel the love and effort he puts into his cooking. Except for his chicken , nothing has been mentioned on his other masterpieces, what a sad thing! His stir fried beef is something that NO other restaurent here or Hongkong ( famous for good food ) can match ,we can't go without each time we dine there. We love sharksfin and the only place that we know that serves good sharksfin is Thai Village and Klong Tang Ping ( closed , used to be at Holland Village ) but since trying Chef Chan's version , We never step into Thai Village anymore. As recently as last week , he served us this dish and we can't help praising him for making further improvements to this dish .It was superd better than previous occasions , we told him to serve us this version in future instead of the old version , words can't describe the heavenly taste. Even his Kwai Fa Chi ( fried sharksfin wrap in lettuce ) is first class. Then we had the South African abalone; wow ! Ahyat & Tunglok who used to be well renowned for this dish are miles behind him .He cooks them in a brown sauce which is very thick and each time we finish every drop on the plate. His garouper sliced fish cooked in a herbal style is also our favourite. There are so many other dishes which are highly commendable , viz; crab in "see chap" , winter melon seafood soup , braised lobster in superior sauce , pork ribs cooked in a similar beef sauce and even large pig intestines ( like the kway chap style but of very high standard ) Sorry that I can't describe his dishes with the correct culinery words but it's overwhelmingly good. I will rate his cooking at 8.5/10 , service is so so , ambience is 9/10. In the past my favourite spot is Crystal Palace ( Taka Shopping ctr) ,Jade (at Wisma Atria ), Cathay Restaurent ,Peach Garden, Taste Paradise , Wah Lok , Tunglok at Paramount , on average for a family of 4 , we spent $200 to $300 but at Chef Chan , if we don't go for Sharksfin or Abalone , our bill comes to around that too . I don't agree that it's pricey to dine there since I have been frequenting above restaurents before settling for his which my family likes so much. If we can afford it , we won't go elsewhere , every meal there makes us fully satisfied. Only dislike is the hollow effect in his rooms which can be noisy when the diners next door create a din with their loud talking.

Since he plans to work another 2-1/2 years before going back to his hometown in China to start a teaching school for ophans , we hope to dine there as often as we can afford to before we miss them forever. Wish you enjoy yourselves there if you plan to try him out.
