Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke – When Sukiyaki met Gyu-don

Ramen King Keisuke Takeda is hell-bent on ruining me! Ruining my lo-carb diet, that is. As if it’s not good enough that he is adding on unnecessary inches to my waistline with the food from his 14 other restaurants, he has now created a new concept at Beef Sukiyaki Don Keisuke. Sukiyaki + Gyu Don […]

Jypsy Bar Counter

Jypsy – PS. Cafe’s new beachy, boho, Japanese casual dining

“I’m fuming!” she seethed, as she instructed me, while hurtling over in a Grab, on what to order at Jypsy, P.S. Café’s latest offering at 38. Martin Road. “Get me a drink, any drink will do!” she texted as I went ahead to order what every other table seemed to be having – the Nest […]

Luka Iwate Beef 3

Luka – My new go-to for Japanese Italian!

Luka’s website says “It’s going to be awesome” and… it was! It’s not often these days that I walk out of a restaurant being completely satisfied with the food and the price tag. The prices at Luka are so reasonable, I’m hoping they continue to maintain that even as they persist with the fabulous quality […]

Mikawa Sushi Somen Oyster Overview shot

Mikawa Yakitori Bar – my go-to izakaya joint in Siglap

With Mikawa Yakitori Bar’s (not to be confused with Mikawa Sake Bar at Changi Business Park) presence at Siglap, now I don’t have to leave my hood to get my izakaya fix. This godforsaken corner of Upper East Coast Road (usually just referred to as Siglap) has seen many an ill-fated restaurant come and go […]

Ryo Sushi – Affordable, drool-worthy omakase!

We were recommended Ryo Sushi by our Japanese-food-loving friends, so had our dinner date there last Friday. First off, bookings are essential. There are only nine seats, and three seatings – 6pm, 7.30pm and 9pm. The chef owner himself will call you to confirm the booking, so you can tell, he runs quite a tight […]

Singapore Best Restaurants 2016 – The Masala Guide!

This is the aunty-approved Singapore Best Restaurants 2016 food guide – The Masala Guide! I thought of writing a listicle so that Santa Google would gift me with a million hits, but decided against it. I’m sure there’ll be plenty of Singapore Best Restaurants 2016 type of articles being published so I thought, why not […]

IZY nokke roll

IZY a new vibe you’ve got?

The first time I heard about IZY was 3 years back when it first opened, and I heard about it via a Ferrari-driving businessman. Which explains why it took me over 2 years before I decided to try the place. That’s only because some izakaya like to pose as casual joints for people out for […]

Man Man Unagi Featured

Man Man Unagi by Teppei – Unagi Heaven!

So, the thought of queuing for 30 minutes under the mid-day sun certainly didn’t sound appealing to me, and when I arrived at Man Man Unagi, my first comment was to ask my friend if she wanted to head elsewhere. After all, we were at the Keong Saik area and plenty other options are available […]

Terra Scallops

Terra – Tokyo Italian, Set Lunch Review

Terra – Tokyo Italian cuisine at Tras Street. My good friend, Howard Lo, was the first to introduce me to Japanese Italian fare 10 years back, and no, I wasn’t a fan. Consisting mostly of pastas with dubious sauces, I seriously doubted my buddy’s taste. But I’ll eat my words as Howard is the owner […]
