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 […]

Camp Kilo Ribs Chicken

Camp Kilo Charcoal Club

Last weekend I went for a buddy’s backyard BBQ. Well, not quite. Not my buddy’s BBQ but Kilo’s new joint – Camp Kilo Charcoal Club at Kampong Bugis. Previously occupied by Loysel’s Toy, home to many a caffeine sesh with my ex-colleagues, Camp Kilo is the latest in the spurt of BBQ joints sprouting up in […]

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 […]

Freehouse Tasting Paddle

Freehouse – Craft Beers on Tap and Tasting Paddles

Whenever my hubby is thirsty, he reaches for a beer. I’m like “Thirsty? Drink water then!”. But clearly I’m not getting the point. But I think I could get it if my fridge was stocked with my new find – thanks to Freehouse, a new craft beer joint at Boon Tat Street (just above Cheek […]

Ollella Choux Platter Featured

Ollella and its pretty little choux bundles

This is probably one time I’d choose the choux over the shoe. I haven’t had much luck with choux pastry so when I heard there was a new kid on the Jalan Besar block, I just had to try. Ollella, at Petain Road, has only 7 flavours (for now) for their pretty little choux bundles, […]

Merchants Platter

Merchants @ Joo Chiat – great place for boutique wines

The first time I walked into Merchant’s at Joo Chiat, I was greeted by a super sunny cheerful Aussie bloke who was more than happy to kickstart our Sunday morning with an impromptu wine tasting session. And thanks to him, I suddenly lost my repulsion for Rosé  and discovered how delightfully charming a good Rosé […]

National Kitchen Kuay Pie Tee

National Kitchen by Violet Oon

With a name like Violet Oon helming National Kitchen at the National Gallery, you’re pretty much guaranteed good stuff. So it’s a safe bet if you’re looking to host a family dinner or visiting friends (which kind of fits with the location being at a national monument). The whole setup really is quite gorgeous. As […]

Mr & Mrs Maxwell Bubbly and Burgers

$6 Bubbly? My kinda Happy Hours at Mr & Mrs Maxwell!

Up on Ann Siang Hill, boutique hotel, The Club, is host to four fancy spots to have a sundowner/dinner at. There’s The Disgruntled Chef, B28, Tiger’s Milk and Mr & Mrs Maxwell. We were heading towards Tiger’s Milk, the Peruvian-inspired rooftop bar, when we walked past the huge banner outside Mr & Mrs Maxwell, on […]

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. […]
