What started out as just something fun for Jasper has developed into a passion for food over the years. Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."

      Well, Majestic Restaurant has really shined with their Mid-Autumn menu, so I would believe that Chef Yong Bing Ngen would not disappoint with the hairy crabs.

      Psst, DBS has a promotion for their special set menu, if you’re visiting by 13th Oct!
