Yes, I have finally tried out MegaZip and MegaJump at Mega Adventure Park in Sentosa after thinking about it for months.
After the adrenaline rush, Jing Ru and I came back to HabourFront Centre. It has been a while since I last ate at Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe so we decided to have our dinner there.
Baked Char Siew Bo Lo Bun [$4.50] is one of Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe’s signatures. It is almost identical to Tim Ho Wan’s Baked Bun with BBQ Pork. Sweet and moist barbecued pork mussels are wrapped in a moist bun topped with a crispy custardy top with a crosshatched pattern that resembles the outside of a pineapple.
Steamed Creamy Custard Bun is such a letdown. The bun itself is fluffy but too thick and the salted egg custard filling is not thick enough and tastes more like melted butter than the creamy salted egg filling it is meant to be.
Papaya Soup Bee Hoon is another signature dish at Cin Wang Hong Kong Cafe and my favourite is Chicken Chop ‘N’ Egg Papaya Soup Bee Hoon [$10.90]. Thin bee hoon is accompanied by flavorful papaya soup, soft papaya pieces, corn, flavoured egg and a thick piece of freshly-fried chicken chop. The other options are Luncheon Meat ‘N’ Egg Papaya Soup Bee Hoon, Pork Chop ‘N’ Egg Papaya and Sliced Fish ‘N’ Egg Papaya Soup Bee Hoon.
XW Special Ying Yong Snow Ice with Grass Jelly is a huge dessert that is best shared with friends. Known to most Singaporeans as ice kachang, the tall tower of shaved ice hides all the gems at the bottom of the bowl – red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly and agar cubes. This particular one is topped with condensed milk, palm sugar and puréed sweet corn. If you are a mango-lover, you should go for the XW Special Mango Snow Ice.
