What the stars ate this week

Japan seems to be the vacay destination of choice for celebs this week -- Zoe Tay and Pan Ling Ling enjoyed the taste of local flavours whilst holidaying in Niseko, Ben Yeo mastered the art of sushi-making, and Desmond Tan indulged in a very festive beverage in Osaka. Meanwhile, Chen Liping caught up with Ya Hui over a piping hot meal in Hengdian, while Jade Seah ate more jjajangmyeon than she could handle back. It's no wonder she needed to lie down after her meal!

Ya Hui and Chen Liping

What they ate: Hengdian signatures

Yummy factor: Chen Liping made a trip down to Hengdian in Zhejiang to visit Ya Hui, and she brought her to have the town’s best nosh that they’ve come to love, like the sliced fish hotpot!

Zoe Tay and Pan Ling Ling

What they ate: Laksa and “bak chor mee” in Niseko

Yummy factor: You can take a Singaporean out of Singapore, but you can't take the Singapore out of the Singaporean. Even though they were miles away from home, Zoe and Ling Ling managed to get their hawker food fix, indulging in authentic Singaporean fare like laksa (with the creamiest egg yolk) at chef Willin Low’s resto Roketto, as well as a fusion dish - bak chor mee maze soba.

Jade Seah

What she ate: Korean feast

Yummy factor: Jade's Korean set meal for two at O.BBa Jjajang looks like it could feed a small family! Check out the Korean fried chicken and generous bowls of jjajangmyeon and jjamppong (seafood noodle soup, with lots of fresh mussels) though - they're definitely worth the calories and post-meal food baby and coma.

Chen Xiuhuan

What she ate: Sashimi and... shirako

Yummy factor: While fresh sashimi is a common dish to order whilst in Japan, Xiuhuan decided to throw in something more adventurous - shirako. For the uninitiated, shirako is Japanese for fish sperm sacs, revered for its rich texture and taste. Well, all we can say is that the dish probably has an acquired taste!

What she ate: Homemade ang ku kueh

Yummy factor: Rebecca and her sister got busy in the kitchen and whipped up a gorgeous batch of ang ku kuehs, which were coloured with natural ingredients -- purple and orange sweet potatoes. And whilst Rebecca’s first attempt at making these kuehs didn’t turn out as aesthetically pleasing as her sister’s, it’s the thought (and taste) that counts!

What they ate: Taiwanese brekkie

Yummy factor: Both Bonnie and Ying Ying, who are shooting their new drama in Taipei, made sure to warm themselves with hot soup for brunch at Xi Men Ding. Ying Ying opted for a heart seafood noodle broth whilst Bonnie went for a hotpot stew with rice. Just what we need in this chilly weather.

What she ate: Pizzas and pasta

Yummy factor: Sora indulged in a sinful Italian meal at Siena’s in Leederville, Perth, and the thin-crust pizzas look like they were baked in a traditional wood-fired oven - yum! Hope she had some wine to go with her meal.
