What the stars ate this week

‘Tis the season for fancy eats -- Fann Wong slurped up a xiao long bao stuffed with crab roe stock; Jeanette Aw had a soft serve topped with real gold; and Desmond Tan had his fill of wagyu beef. Meanwhile, Bonnie Loo has been busy baking up a storm and Star Search 2019 finalist Zhai Siming, who was surprised with cakes from Christopher Lee, Chen Hanwei and Huang Biren, had an unforgettable birthday.

What he ate: Not one but FOUR cakes for his birthday celebration

Yummy factor: Can you believe Li Nanxing is 55 years old? Ah Ge rang in his birthday yesterday (Nov 7) with lots of cake and wine with celeb pals like Rayson Tan, Chen Liping, Christopher Lee, and Constance Song. There was even a huge pot of "auspicious" bee hoon courtesy of former radio DJ Dongfang Billy.

What he ate: Omakase dinner

Yummy factor: Desmond certainly didn’t hold back at Fat Cow, where he tucked into the 12-course Aki Matsuri Beef Omakase Menu featuring tender wagyu sandwiches, thinly-sliced Kumamoto beef (topped with real gold flakes!) and more. Are you salivating yet?

What she ate: Tendon

Yummy factor: Let’s face it, even fitness enthusiasts like Sora won’t be able to resist a hearty bowl of tendon -- just look at that bowl of deep-fried, battered goodness atop Japanese pearl rice!

What she ate: Loads of crabs

Yummy factor: Hairy crab season is here and Florence took full advantage of it at Hengdian. Check out the platter of hairy crabs and the creamy roe within -- she had eight of them! The chilli padi looks really spicy though...

Fann Wong

What she ate: Xiao long bao

Yummy factor: Is it just us, or does Fann’s xiao long bao look extra juicy? We can’t help but notice how it was dripping with soup as she bit into it... Made with fresh crab roe, the soup stock must have tasted heavenly -- too bad Zed Zed was too focused on being a “rabbit” and declined a bite!

What he ate: Birthday cakes

Yummy factor: Aww... Veteran artistes and mentors like Christopher Lee, Huang Biren and Chen Hanwei got together to celebrate Star Search finalist Zhai Siming’s birthday with two cakes -- red velvet and chocolate -- from Cedele. We're pretty sure this is a birthday the 23-year-old will never forget.

What she ate: Homemade castella cake

Yummy factor: Jesting that she’s her toddler’s “Aladdin”, Tracy acceded to his request for cake and made an old-school egg sponge cake for him. Baked from scratch, the homemade creation looks like it could have been bought from a store.

Jeanette Aw

What she ate: Gold leaf ice cream

Yummy factor: Kanazawa, a city in Japan’s Ishikawa prefecture, is pretty famous for all things gold, including this OTT ice cream cone Jeanette got from Hakuichi. And in case you’re wondering, yes, it’s an entire sheet of real shimmery gold on the cold treat -- although it probably didn’t do much for the ice cream in terms of taste, it certainly is Insta-worthy.

What he ate: Rose watermelon cake

Yummy factor: Talk about having a rosy time... Despite being busy with work, Xu Bin managed to surprise his wifey Evelyn Wong with a pastel-hued bouquet of roses and a rose watermelon cake from C’Qua for their second wedding anniversary. The combination of roses, watermelon and strawberry sure sounds like a heavenly combo.

What she ate: Dim sum

Yummy factor: Although Constance is real busy with filming in Ipoh, she makes sure she eats her fill too. Check out the dim sum spread she had at Fulin Dim Sum Restaurant -- the siew mais look especially plump and juicy, and is that X.O. carrot cake we spy?

What he ate: Assam Laksa

Yummy factor: Nick, who is also in Ipoh, slurped up a appetite-whetting bowl of tangy assam laksa from Ambience Tea House, and completed his meal with a warm bowl of cheng tng. Smart choice to 'cool' down that heaty bowl of laksa.

What she ate: Chocolate cakes

Yummy factor: Happy birthday, Denise! The 27-year-old celebrated her birthday (Nov 6) with fans and loved ones, as well as her dance pals, Hazelle Teo and Tay Ying. And if there’s one thing we’ve noticed about her choice of birthday cakes, it’s that they are all chocolate-based!

What she ate: Too many cucumbers

Yummy factor: If there’s anyone who can make the act of consuming a simple cucumber dish look like a dramatic affair, it’s probably Sonia. Humour aside, don’t the cucumber slices resemble sushi?

What they drank: Milo shots

What she ate: Desserts in a quaint cafe in Amsterdam 

Yummy factor: After being under the weather, Phyllis looked more than pleased to be digging into her desserts. We'd definitely order more than two slices of cakes if we were her.

Kayly Loh

What she drank: Coffee

Yummy factor: Interestingly, Kayly had her frothy latte in a bowl whilst on vacay in South Africa. Anyone else thinks there’s enough caffeine in there to last her for days?
