The Butcher's Wife Entrance

The Butcher’s Wife – Gluten-free dining

All my gluten-fearing friends can now make an appointment with The Butcher’s Wife for sustenance. Taking over the spot formerly occupied by another Spa Esprit Group restaurant, Open Door Policy, which interestingly was also heading down the GF path, so not sure why the cosmetic change and the closing of that door, but it doesn’t […]

Atout Dessert 2

Atout – Classic French Bistro Dining at Dempsey

Atout certainly has all the trappings of a “pretty” night out. Just its location at the former grounds of Au Petit Salut is one huge hint about how charming the place is going to be. You’re surrounded by greenery, the vibe inside is bistro style and it just has a certain “je ne sais quoi” […]

L'atelier De Joel Robuchon Singapore Decor

My Love Affair with Joel

{Update: 7 August 2018} Sadly, Chef Joel Robuchon has passed away. He died of cancer on 6 August 2018. He was 73. Still, his legacy lives on, not just in his eponymous restaurants, but in the spirits of many other chefs he had trained. {Update: 22 July 2016} And the stars keep shining on for […]

Blackwattle – Mod Oz experiments at Amoy Street

{Update: 4 August 2018} I’m having a sense of deja vu now. I feel like I had just raved about another wonderful Mod-Oz restaurant, and then it closed soon after (that was 13 Duxton Hill). And now, it’s Blackwattle’s turn. Re-reading my review below, I can’t help but feel a loss for this closure. Blackwattle […]

Ding Dong Pork Collar 1

Ding Dong – yummy new Mod-Asian creations!

{Update: 1 August 2018} So I know I had written about Ding Dong previously after one of my lunch sojourns with my ex-JC classmates, but what I didn’t realise was that the review was written 2 years ago and I hadn’t been back since! My… goes to show just how many options Singapore has, that […]

Jaan Featured

JAAN Singapore – Delicious, Decadent and Delightful

My very first time at Jaan was around 14 years ago, when my boyfriend (my darling hubby now) had brought me there on a date. Back then, we were all about exploring the latest fine dining places, so we would go around trying new restaurants, never mind the fact that back in the day, there […]

Alila Sunset 2

Alila Seminyak Bali – I want to return now!

So, I disappeared for a few days into the warm arms of Alila Seminyak, where thoughts of lazy days spent doing nothing but revising my French was the grand plan, but…. well, that didn’t quite happen. French, shmench! When the warmth of the sun caresses your face, when the cool sea breeze tingles your skin, […]

Yellow Pot Duck 1

Yellow Pot, Six Senses Duxton – sustainable mod-Chinese

Think Six Senses and you’re likely to think of lush resorts clinging on to the little nooks and crannies of the world, in places reeking of exoticism, such as Fiji and the Seychelles. And while at first glance, Duxton road might appear to be lined by nothing more than a stretch of bars, this area […]

Odette at National Gallery Singapore

Odette. Pretty as a peach, Odette. 2-Michelin-starred Odette. Singapore’s top restaurant (according to the Pellegrino list), Odette. Certainly, the accolades have been raining down on Odette the past couple of years. Chef Julien Royer, formerly from fine dining pseudo training school, Jaan, is the poster boy for French finesse with a touch of Asia. It’s […]

Verde Kitchen Fish

Conscious cuisine at Verde Kitchen, Hilton

How is it that it’s April and my resolution to eat healthy has not kicked in yet? It’s getting worse and worse, I must say! Still, occasionally, I do stumble across a good find, serving up fare encompassing all that is healthy in this world. I’m referring to this hole in a luxe Hilton hall […]

Kimme Beef

Kimme – a Korean-inspired Mod European restaurant

I’ve had to crawl out of my hole to write this. It’s been a while since I have blogged: mainly because I have gone back to work full-time and simply do not have any energy to expend on this awesome hobby of mine and also because, it has to take somewhere really special for me […]

Tablescape Lobster Monkfish

Tablescape Grand Park City Hall – A Hidden Gem

{Update: 1 August} I have been meaning to update my review on Tablescape. Seeing as how I had sung its praises previously, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be as inclined to do so anymore. The chef from that time has left, and the last time I visited for lunch, the selection for the lunch sets had […]
