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 […]

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 […]

Alley on 25 Smoke and Pepper lamb burger

Alley on 25 at flashy new Andaz hotel

Part of the swish new DUO enclave, Alley on 25 at Andaz, a luxury hotel by the Hyatt group, is host to a selection of restaurants and bars. Being within close proximity to Andaz, it didn’t take me long before I sauntered in one day during lunch to check out their attractively-priced 3-course set menus. […]

Mitzo x Shen Tan Featured

Mitzo x Shen Tan, Friends of Mitzo Dinner series

A couple of months back, I attended the 2nd instalment of the Friends of Mitzo series featuring a face-off between Morsel’s Petrina Low and Mitzo’s Executive Chef Nicky Ng. Rounding of the Friends of Mitzo series is the upcoming collaboration with Singapore’s “nasi lemak queen”, Shen Tan. It might not do her justice to brand […]

Folklore Fried Rice

Folklore Restaurant – Taste of Singapore’s Heritage

Folklore’s Eurasian-Peranakan hybrid cuisine was the perfect solution to my wanderlusting best friend’s search for heritage cuisine in Singapore. Visiting from the USA, this girl craves cultural culinary exploits wherever she goes, so I figured a visit to Folklore restaurant at Destination Singapore Beach Road hotel would give her a taste of our uniquely Singaporean […]

Mitzo Morsels Fish

Mitzo meets Morsels Face Off

McGregor and Mayweather may be facing off this weekend but I was invited to a different kind of fight last week. I exaggerate. Mitzo’s “Friends of Mitzo Dinner Series” isn’t about a cook-off, more of a “let’s make lovely food together” kind of collaboration project with respected chefs. The respected chef in question being our […]

Jai Siam – wallet-friendly, authentic Thai in the east!

Jai Siam’s slogan says wallet-friendly authentic Thai cuisine. Well, it’s authentic, and value for money indeed! Hubby already said he had a good feeling because the service staff was Thai, and we were not disappointed. The dishes came out one by one – I believe they might have been short-staffed in the kitchen that evening, […]

Wine & Chef Mussels

Wine & Chef – like your hood’s zi-char (almost)

Wine & Chef at Keong Saik road – another nod to Mod-Sin cuisine, which I welcome wholeheartedly because the supposed stalwarts of Mod-Sin (one in particular, whose latest restaurant Po is really just a great excuse to pay for overpriced local fare) really need to be shown a thing or two about genuine fusion and […]

Platypus Katong Pork Belly rice

Platypus Katong – great for drinks, food so-so

From the outside, it seems as though Platypus Katong has all the necessary elements to be a shoo-in for a great night out. An open, inviting stretch facing East Coast Road, friendly staff and some super happy hour deals – we’re talking $6 for your 1st drink and $9 for selected beers and wines till […]

Po Satay Horizontal

PO restaurant – possibly grandma-approved but she might just baulk at the prices!

Oh Po-leez, do you really think you can get away with charging those prices? Or maybe I should ask, do you really think you should get away with charging those prices? At Po, located in the new boutique hotel, The Warehouse Hotel, we’re talking S$28 for 4 wrap-it-yourself rolls of popiah and $32 for atas […]
