La Cantina – Charming Italian restaurant in Changi Village

If I’m craving crabmeat pasta, there’s one place I would go to in a heartbeat for a guaranteed winner – and that’s La Cantina In Venezia, or more commonly known as, La Cantina. The linguine al granchio has plump pieces of sweet crab meat, swimming in a rich, creamy tomato sauce – my absolute favourite […]

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 […]

Saha Singapore Mushroom Biryani

Innovative Indian cuisine at Saha

Now we all know Indian food hasn’t yet fallen victim to the “tiny plates” movement, I mean, give me a mountain of rice and drown it with curry, right? But in Saha’s case, Chef Abhijit Saha’s mixing of traditional Indian with innovative techniques is worth checking out. Originally at Duxton Hill, Saha has moved to the […]

Italian Osteria Pork Belly

Labyrinth Chili Crab

Labyrinth restaurant – local flavours and modern methods

Plenty, if I go by some other “fusion”-inspired places. But here at Labyrinth, […]

RedEye Smokehouse platter

Red Eye Smokehouse – succulently smoky meats

There we were, minding our own beeswax, when a meat craving hit us like a boulder to the belly. So after some frantic searching online, we decided to head on to Red Eye Smokehouse, a new smoke shack along Jalan Besar. UPDATE: Camp Kilo just opened at Kampong Bugis, so we’ve got another great option […]

Ananda Bhavan

Best Indian Breakfast in Singapore – Ananda Bhavan

If you’re hankering for an Indian breakfast fill-me-up, Ananda Bhavan in Little India is a great option. It’s all vegetarian, and the “live” Appam (spelled as Appom by some) station is the highlight for me. Hailing from Kerala (my mother’s birthplace), where most yummy south indian dishes originate from (or so I might biasedly say), […]
