Superior Chia Seeds & Premium Bird’s Nest

I have been incorporating my breakfast with chia seeds and I never knew that there are more 1000+ types of chia seeds in the world! surprised This was made known to me after a chat with Mr. Freddy Yap, the CEO of Superior.

Chia seeds are known to have an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and protein. They are one of the most nutritious food in the world that helps to aid heart and digestive health, stabilise blood sugar and maintain stronger bones and teeth. High in fibre, gluten-free and transfat free, they are great for cleansing and detoxing and are delicious combined in food and drink recipes for that much needed energy boost, which is why I love having it for breakfast since it is the first meal of the day. smile

Then again, not all chia seeds in the market are good. In order to allow consumers like us to enjoy the best of the best, Superior had incorporated 5 of the best chia seeds amongst the 1000+ types and had micro sliced them at a fairly low temperature in order not to destroy the nutrients in the seeds. With them finely milled, the nutrients are easier to absorb as raw chia seeds with the husk still intact are less likely to be as nutritious as they are digested naturally as a whole by the body. Other than being a meal replacement to aid in weight loss, it also helps to prevent constipation. Here are some dishes specially created by Yàn for Superior’s event.

Superior also offers premium bird’s nest which are painstakingly cleaned manually by hand, using only distilled water. The nests are natural, organic and free from any additives, chemicals or cleaning agents. Each nest receives a final quality check, ensuring its optimum colour, size, and shape which contributes to its bite and springy texture after cooking.

Customers may choose to purchase 2 types of products – double boiled bird’s nest (2 bowls for S$158) and dried bird’s nests (S$960 for 200g). For those who wants to enjoy bird’s nest without the hassle of preparing it, do order the double boiled bird’s nest. The dried bird’s nest is first soaked in boiling water for an hour, then gently double boiled for another hour before being naturally sweetened with rock sugar or honeycomb. Customers can also choose their preferred level of sweetness when ordering online. Each order of double boiled bird’s nest is delivered right to your doorstop in a porcelain vacuum flask that helps keep the tonic fresh, air tight and warm.

We were treated to Chilled Double-Boiled Superior Bird’s Nest in Coconut Water served with Vanilla Ice Cream, a lovely combination which I totally enjoy savouring.

District 10 Festive Menu

District 10 Bar & Restaurant and District 10 Bar & Grill are celebrating the festive season in a fiery fashion! What you will be seeing in this post will be available for the whole month of December and we are just weeks away from Christmas! smile

Available at Suntec City

We started the meal with some bar bites – Fried Soft Shell Crab with Chili Crab Sauce ($20++) which was not too oily with generous chunks of crab meat in it and Papadum with Foie Gras and Mango Chutney ($26++), probably the only foie gras I love, it had a good balance of fat it in and literally melts in your mouth.

Flavourful and satisfying, Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with Crabmeat and Prawn topped with Gorgonzola sauce and Flying Fish Roe ($28++) are plump, juicy and moist.

For carb lovers, Homemade Lobster Ravioli cooked in Light Butter Sage sauce and finished with Black Truffle ($38++) will be the perfect dish for you. Check out those generous strips of truffle, which added some aroma and visual appeal to the entire dish.

The highlight of the day is the Flaming Black Angus Tomahawk ($180) which is the first in Singapore. Sourced from Australia, the 200-day grain-fed Black Angus Tomahawk is a generous portion of up to 1.7kg which is good for 4-5 people. District 10 had nailed the perfect medium rare steak, where we were treated to a spectacular sight as the steak was flamed right in front of our eyes, leaving a nice, charred taste to the juicy meat.

Also up in flames is the Bourbon Flamed Cheese ($24++), where strips of bacon are wrapped around the the cheese to give it that extra oomph.

Cheese lovers, you are in for a treat! The Cheese Wheel promotion will be extended till end of the month due to its success and popular demand. Items like salad, pasta, risotto will be tossed in a huge wheel of Grana Padano Cheese before being served.

First dish on the cheese wheel menu is the Caesar Salad with D10 Classic dressing, Crouton and Smoked Chicken ($19++). I find this dish a tad too salty, probably due to the additional blob of anchovies paste added to the salad. However, the smoked chicken was tender and tastefully done.

Pasta dishes like the Spaghetti with Smoked Salmon in Light Cream Sauce ($28++) and Linguine with Mixed Seafood in a Spicy Tomato Basil sauce ($28++) are tossed in the cheese wheel as well which makes the sauce more creamy and rich. My personal favourite is the smoked salmon version, which has a silkier texture.

We also tried starters like Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, Rocket Lettuce and 24 Month Old Shaved Parmesan Cheese ($18++) and Over Baked Eggplant Alla Parmigiana Style ($17++). The latter was my favourite out of the two, as the eggplant was fork tender and blended extremely well with the tomato sauce and cheese.

Made with mushrooms, pancetta ham, zucchini and egg, the District 10 Pizza ($19++) has a light, thin crust, definitely a hit for carb-lovers.

We ended the meal with a cuppa Traditional Italian Tiramisu ($14++), one of my favourite Italian desserts.
