"This smashed fried chicken is my secret vice - the crisp skin crackles and the flesh comes clean off the bones, which snap easily and are flavourful to chew on. The chicken gets an added kick from a squeeze of lime and sambal belacan, and is topped with the obligatory crunchy batter bits."

"I don't know what kind of magic chef Shen Tan works into her red bean ice cream, but it remains intact in the unforgiving hot weather and until you've had enough to pair with every spoonful of the panna cotta. It is smooth and rich, but doesn't leave you overly full."
