The wood-fired Peking Duck at the One-North branch has always been a highlight for me as well, although it has been many years since I have been to either.

This month, diners will be in for a tantalising treat as they try the newly unveiled Winter & Spring Menu.
Alright, I got to confess that I am quite a sucker for skincare products and anything that is highly raved by people. So if you tell me that celery is good for my health, I will drink/ eat it (which I have been doing for years..lol).
