My Love Affair with Joel

[Updated 22 July] And the stars keep shining on for Joel. L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon Singapore has been awarded 2 Michelin stars, whilst restaurant Joel Robuchon has been awarded Singapore’s very first (and only) 3 Michelin stars by the 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore. [Original Post] It all started one gloomy afternoon in London in 2012. […]

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 […]

Ding Dong Scallop Tartare

Ding Dong – fun times, now at Amoy Street!

Take the already eclectic décor of Ding Dong at Ann Siang, amp it up with a heady dose of retro kitsch, and you have the new Ding Dong at Amoy Street. The neon pink signage of Ding Dong shows you the way to the relocated space at the front of Amoy Street and walls plastered […]

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. […]

FYR Duck Confit

Set Lunch at FYR Cycene Ond Drinc

You don’t need to know how to pronounce this restaurant’s name. Just know that FYR Cycene Ond Drinc serves up really good value for money set lunches. At just $25 for 3 courses, that’s practically a steal, considering the big portions and the CBD location of the restaurant at Boon Tat Street. You know how […]

Cho Omakase Unagi

Value for money Japanese set lunch at Cho Omakase, Boat Quay

Walking past the many ramen/bento restaurants along the Circular Road stretch around Boat Quay reminds me of the quickie lunches salarymen in Tokyo would have – slurping noodles whilst standing up or being in and out of an eatery within minutes. Cho Omakase at Lorong Telok, however, serves up a quick and satisfying Set Lunch for […]
