If you are ‘out on the town’ and need to satisfy your hunger pangs late at night, pop in to Jin Shan Lou, in the Marina Bay area, for a Taiwan porridge supper. There more than 70 dishes are prepared by award-winning chefs under the helm of Master Chef Huang Ching Biao, originally from Taiwan. Cantonese, Hunan and Sichuan delicacies include braised duck Jin Shan style ($20), sautéed fresh scallops with XO sauce ($30) and stir-fried chicken accompanied by macadamia nuts ($20). Soup, fish and bean-curd dishes are also popular. My companions and I enjoyed sautéed fresh asparagus with minced garlic, Chinese omelette with chives, and stir-fried prawns enlivened by dried chillies.

It is a great place to watch passers- by, day or night.
