The Kitchen Bacchanalia Lamb

Brilliant flavours at The Kitchen at Bacchanalia

The Kitchen at Bacchanalia received a 1-star nod from the Michelin inspectors for the inaugural 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore. And well-deserved, might I add! Reminding me of similar 1-starred restaurants in cities like San Francisco, The Kitchen at Bacchanalia has an edgy vibe, thanks to the open kitchen and all its accompanying culinary energy placed […]

Tippling Club Featured

So what if Tippling Club has been denied a star?

Many are wondering how Tippling Club was passed over for a Michelin star. But seriously, who cares? Ryan Clift and gang have been serving up thoughtful and inventive cuisine for the longest time now, and my recent visit showed no signs of the team pulling back. The word here is team. It’s not just about […]

Lewin Terrace Vegetable Jelly

Beautiful hideaway at Lewin Terrace

I always love the idea of having lunch al fresco, surrounded by lush greenery, hearing birds merrily chirping away, far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And at Lewin Terrace at Fort Canning, you get that and a couple of bushy-tailed squirrels chasing each other’s tails, to boot. Best approached via […]

Rhubarb Duck Confit

Lunch at Rhubarb Le Restaurant

[Updated 22 July 2016] I am thrilled that one of my favourite restaurants has been awarded one Michelin star by the 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore. [Original post] If you need a fancy lunch place to impress your business partners or colleagues, Rhubarb Le Restaurant at Duxton Hill is a great choice. At $42++ for a 3-course […]

Scottish fine dining at UsQuBa, One Fullerton

I was a young chicky when I visited Scotland, about 20 years ago. Hopped into Edinburgh from London, and had a mighty good time walking the streets, exploring quaint bookstores and being enchanted by the sight of the magnificent Edinburgh castle, perched up in the hills, looming over the city. I wasn’t quite the foodie […]

Delicacy Tapas

Delicacy – Tapas treats at Gemmill Lane

Located along Gemmil Lane, Delicacy, a tapas place, is worth a detour off the main Club Street drag. No, it doesn’t have the requisite hipsterish industrial and cramped look of other “IT” tapas joints in Singapore. Instead, it’s pretty airy, cheery and more like you’re visiting a Spanish senorita’s home for dinner (if you don’t […]

Punjab Grill Appetizer

Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands

If even my mom can say that the food was really good, and her friend said it was “the best lunch I’ve had”, then I think you can take it that Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands is good. From the ambience to the service to the food, you will notice little touches that will […]

Tanuki Raw Herumetto Duck Confit

Tanuki Raw at Orchard Central

I’ve been a Tanuki Raw fan since the days of its launch years back, having swigged many a bubbly while scoffing down oysters during their happy hour promotions. That was also where I fell in love with some of their fabulously quirky sushi rolls like American Roll (sushi version of a cheeseburger) and Rockstar (deep […]

OCF Appetizer

OCF – Singapore Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week has always been hits and misses for me. From the spectacular (all hail Salt at Ion) to some “stellar” disappointments, I’m not always guaranteed a great meal. OCF at The Arts House is worth checking out. This is one meal where you don’t have to run off to eat prata after your dinner. […]
