Kimme Beef

Kimme – a Korean-inspired Mod European restaurant

I’ve had to crawl out of my hole to write this. It’s been a while since I have blogged: mainly because I have gone back to work full-time and simply do not have any energy to expend on this awesome hobby of mine and also because, it has to take somewhere really special for me […]

Tablescape Lobster Monkfish

Tablescape Grand Park City Hall – A Hidden Gem

Tablescape at Grand Park City Hall is quite the find, indeed. I’ve dined there twice in the past month (these days, I feel it’s almost a duty to visit a place more than once before telling my friends about it) and had wonderful meals both times. Now, Tablescape at the Peninsula Plaza area – how […]

La Cala Oxtail 2

La Cala – Spanish Delicioso at DUO!

Working at DUO has its benefits, not least of which is the variety of dining options that the Bugis/Kampong Glam area has to offer. The newest entrant to the mix is Spanish restaurant, La Cala. To celebrate (or should I say, commiserate?) yet another work week, a few of my like-minded colleagues and I decided […]

Atlas Beef 2

Atlas Bar and Restaurant’s Decadent Lunch

One does not necessarily think of food when one thinks of Atlas. More likely to come to mind is its impressive Art Deco inspired setting – it’s not completely unthinkable to lose oneself in its splendid grandeur, sinking deep into the plush emerald couches, drunk on all the intricate gold-embellished décor of Atlas. And with […]

Blackwattle Cover

Blackwattle – Mod Oz experiments at Amoy Street

I don’t rush to visit new restaurants these days. Many a time, I have been disappointed, paid way too much for far too little, not just in size but in finesse and flair. But hearing that Blackwattle had opened made me want to head over sooner rather than later, considering that I had a fine […]

Alley on 25 Smoke and Pepper lamb burger

Alley on 25 at flashy new Andaz hotel

Part of the swish new DUO enclave, Alley on 25 at Andaz, a luxury hotel by the Hyatt group, is host to a selection of restaurants and bars. Being within close proximity to Andaz, it didn’t take me long before I sauntered in one day during lunch to check out their attractively-priced 3-course set menus. […]

Folklore Fried Rice

Folklore Restaurant – Taste of Singapore’s Heritage

Folklore’s Eurasian-Peranakan hybrid cuisine was the perfect solution to my wanderlusting best friend’s search for heritage cuisine in Singapore. Visiting from the USA, this girl craves cultural culinary exploits wherever she goes, so I figured a visit to Folklore restaurant at Destination Singapore Beach Road hotel would give her a taste of our uniquely Singaporean […]

Mitzo Morsels Fish

Mitzo meets Morsels Face Off

McGregor and Mayweather may be facing off this weekend but I was invited to a different kind of fight last week. I exaggerate. Mitzo’s “Friends of Mitzo Dinner Series” isn’t about a cook-off, more of a “let’s make lovely food together” kind of collaboration project with respected chefs. The respected chef in question being our […]

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 […]

Aura Chocolate dessert

Weekend Brunch at Aura – National Gallery Singapore

{Update: 10 August 2017} It has been over a year since I visited Aura for its Sunday Brunch, and happy to say, it was as good as ever! They’ve still maintained the $48 set price, and the portions remain generous. Still meant to be served as a “family-style” Italian brunch, you get a variety of […]
