It’s Friday again and we know you have been waiting for this week’s episode of Food King! And guess what?! Sylvia is finally back with us! And it’s because we are going to pamper ourselves with wholesome food that not only taste good but also makes us beautiful. Sorry Dee Kosh, you got to make way for Sylvia this time round… She’s gonna rake up the beauty points for this one. Can’t wait to eat healthy and be pretty! Leggo!
1. Our first beauty stop has beauty literally in its name. And yes, we are here at Beauty In The Pot in Paya Lebar. They have a variety of soup and side dishes here and we can’t wait to try all of it!
Soups, soups, soups! We love soups! And speaking of which, here we have 4 different types of soups available: The must-have Collagen Soup, Spicy Pork Soup, Drunken Chicken Soup and lastly the unique Coconut Cooling Soup. Their signature collagen soup is said to be good for your hair, skin and nails. The broth is really rich and the consistency is a bit thicker than the rest of the soups. Feels very much like a rich seafood soup. We like the Herbal Drunken Chicken Soup and this is definitely Ryan’s favorite among the 4 . It taste exactly like a legit powerful herbal soup and you can tell that the herbal ingredients they use are of premium quality, not like those common cheap kind you find everywhere else. In case you are wondering, this herbal soup is actually really good for blood circulation and immunity. The Spicy Pork Soup (Sylvia’s favorite) is made of pork bone broth and contains a generous variety of herbs including a whole Ginseng in it! Imagine it to be like a broiled soup but a spicy version. Last but not least, we have the ladies’ choice that is the Coconut Cooling Soup. This is hands down the most interesting and cooling soup we have so far. Ladies will love this because they have snow fungus in it which is good for the complexion.
We also want to point out that all the side dishes here are not factory-made, meaning what you see and eat here is of legit premium quality. Even the assorted meatballs are handmade. The price range here are a little on the high side but we feel it is worth it since you are spending on the taste and quality. They even top up the correct soup in the the correct pot instead of using a generic soup for all like how most places do. Another plus point!
Special mention for one of their signature side dish as well. This cute-looking tofu is made in a shape of a fish. Made from yellow tail soya bean and egg white, it is deliciously sweet and also rich in protein. A must try!

2. We are now here at Imperial Herbal Restaurant. This place has been around for a really long time and most customers come here for very specified ‘health goals’. What this unique restaurant does is that they combine traditional herbal Chinese medicine with culinary skills for all their dishes. Hence, the dishes can technically be called ‘health gourmet’ food since every dish here serves a specific health purpose.
First up, we will be trying their Scallop with egg whites. This dish taste very light on the palette and is a good starter before going for the stronger tasting dishes we will be having later.
Next up is the the Braised Crocodile Tail. Crocodile tail is generally loaded with collagen which is good for you hair, skin and nails. It is also good for treating asthma. There is not much taste or smell on the meat but the abalone sauce makes it more palatable. Interestingly, the texture feels like you are eating a fish but somehow taste like a chicken.
Now comes our grand finale… And gosh this dish is so weird and shocking. Here we have the Deer Penis Soup. We must warn that this soup is really alcoholic! So much herbs and ingredients goes into this soup and we are about to have a shocking discovery… Can you see it?
Goodness! Ryan here is holding an actual Deer penis with a deflated ball sack we can’t stop laughing at it. Talking about amusing ourselves… Just look at the size of this thing!
Okay, Aiken really ate the penis… Just for all of you Food King fans! Now let’s take a moment to salute him. What good sport! That’s why we love Aiken!
We have a shocking find unlike any other. Yes… There is a baby seahorse in our soup! Where on earth did this come from?! This must be the weirdest Food King episode ever. We are so gonna have nightmares for days…

3. Finally, we are here at Curious Palette. We love this cafe and this is one of the few places in Singapore where the food looks good and actually also taste good.
We are going to try their signature Berry Ricotta Hotcake and boy does it look beautiful! The pancake is so fluffy and airy, while the texture is very light on the mouth. The serving is pretty big and generous but we can finish the whole thing because it taste oh-so-good. So what health benefits does this colorful garden pancake have? Well, let’s talk about the Ricotta. The Ricotta is a healthy Italian whey cheese which contains Vitamin B-12 which helps with the formation of red blood cells. The strawberries and blueberries has anti-oxidants which is good for the skin for those who wants beautiful complexion. So try this if you want to look and feel pretty!
