What the stars ate this week

It’s been a pungent week for James Seah and Justin Ang - the former got adventurous and decided to try durian tuna sushi, while the latter held his breath for this snap of stinky tofu. As for the rest of the stars, Kym Ng went for a safe option like fried beehoon; Taufik Batisah got down and dirty with a fried sandwich that was bursting with cheese; and Chen Xiuhuan, Zoe Tay, Hong Huifang and Terence Cao went on a mouthwatering foodie trip to Johor Bahru.

Chantalle ng

What she ate: Thai street food

Yummy factor: Chantalle indulged in her love for street food in Bangkok's Yaowarat Night Market, and she was duly rewarded with delish finds. However, the dish she’s holding was apparently so spicy, it made her tear! Is it just us, or does it resemble our fave mala xiang guo?

What she ate: Everything from seafood to pao fan to durian

Yummy factor: The celeb pals went on a food expedition in Johor Bahru that saw them visiting Terence’s and Yao Wenlong’s restaurants. That can only mean one thing - lots of yummy eats for the ladies! Think mao shan wang and durian chendol, plenty of fresh seafood and juicy roast meats to go around, as well as comforting pao fan (cooked rice served in broth) - definitely a day well spent.

Taufik Batisah

What he ate: Cheesy sandwich

Yummy factor: Leading by example, Taufik dug into his resto’s (Chix Hot Chicken) new sandwich, a fried cheesy creation that has been aptly named “The Melt”. We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely craving for some gooey goodness right now.

What she ate: Kueh kueh

Yummy factor: Lucky Biren was treated to a spread prepared by her good friend, and we’re loving the explosion of colours - think ang ku kueh, multi-coloured huat kueh, an entire pot of lontong and more.

What he ate: Durian tuna sushi

Yummy factor: Fancy having a tray of durian tuna sushi topped with mentaiko? As bizarre as it sounds, that’s exactly what James had, and he actually thought “it goes well together”. Well... to each his own!

What she ate: Fried beehoon

Yummy factor: What better way to celebrate the nation’s birthday than having a picnic with loved ones, and enjoying a local favourite like fried beehoon (with lots of ingredients, no less)?

What she ate: Bingsu

Yummy factor: How cute is Carrie’s bowl of bingsu with its bulging eyes? Plus, with the warm weather we’ve been experiencing, those delicate frozen layers of goodness are definitely calling out to us.

Justin Ang

What he ate: Taiwanese goodies

Yummy factor: From stinky tofu (which he was forced to hold for his wife) to Hotstar’s XXL fried chicken to yummy shabu shabu with lots of thinly-sliced meat at Orange Shabu Shabu, Justin certainly got his fill of Taiwan’s signatures. He didn’t look too pleased with the stinky tofu though...

What he ate: Roast meat

Yummy factor: Thomas had a hearty Malaysian-style roast duck and caramelised char siew in Kuala Lumpur, and we wonder if he actually managed to finish all of that by himself.

Jade Seah

What she ate: Breakfast at Clinton Street Baking Company

Yummy factor: It’s said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and Jade’s Mexican-style brekkie complete with beans and guacamole sure looks the part! And while we love how perfectly done her sunny-side-up eggs look, we can’t help but eye her companion’s fluffy stack of pancakes! Who else can’t wait to try them with some maple syrup and chocolate sauce?

What she ate: Sticky date cake

Yummy factor: Jeanette Aw specially took time out of her busy schedule to bake a sticky date cake for Sharon’s surprise birthday party at Michelle Chong’s crib - how sweet (literally and figuratively) is that? Jeanette was also really generous with the chopped dates and butterscotch sauce, which we’re sure everyone was more than happy with.

What she drank: Bubble tea in New York

Yummy factor: When the cravings strike, there’s no stopping it. Kim duly queued up for a cuppa from Boba Guys at Canal Street Market, and while it wasn’t the best boba she’s had, at least she managed to get her fix.
