Stellar Chuck Rib skyline

Stellar at 1-Altitude’s sky-high offerings

Stellar at 1-Altitude is going Tajima wagyu strong these days! There’s something to be said for chefs who really get down and dirty with their produce. No, I am not referring to them whispering sweet nothings into a cow’s ears (though who am I to judge), and neither am I talking about rolling around gleefully […]

Nude Seafood Grouper in duck broth

Update: NUDE Seafood’s latest Communal Menu

{Update: 14 May 2017} One of my favourite restaurants in town, I’ve never walked out of NUDE Seafood dissatisfied. The produce is always fresh, cooking always intriguing and generosity always evident. Saw that they’ve launched a new “communal dining” concept, so we decided to check it out last Friday night. The premise is that for […]

Po Satay Horizontal

PO restaurant – possibly grandma-approved but she might just baulk at the prices!

Oh Po-leez, do you really think you can get away with charging those prices? Or maybe I should ask, do you really think you should get away with charging those prices? At Po, located in the new boutique hotel, The Warehouse Hotel, we’re talking S$28 for 4 wrap-it-yourself rolls of popiah and $32 for atas […]

Ginett Facade

So, is Ginett worth spending a night with?

You’ll need a whole lot of patience to spend a night with Ginett. She’s distracted, unsure and leaves you waiting throughout the night. But clearly that hasn’t stopped her many newfound admirers from calling on her. Ginett, a restaurant and wine bar located at the newly opened Hotel G Singapore on Middle Road, was bustling […]

13 Duxton Hill Chicken Liver

{CLOSED} Thirteen Duxton Hill – Now renamed to Thirteen Hectares of Nutmeg!

{Update: 24 March 2017} Despite its promising beginnings, this was a short-lived venture, and Thirteen Hectares of Nutmeg is now permanently closed. {Original Post: Published 29 January 2017} I don’t quite know where to start with Thirteen Duxton Hill. Perhaps I’m a sucker for social-media savvy sommeliers posing as front of house starlets, tripling up […]

Botanico restaurant – Almost perfect but not quite

The décor and ambience at Botanico restaurant at The Garage is certainly worthy of its location at Singapore’s beloved UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Botanic Gardens. The colonial bungalow that used to house the cars of university professors has been converted to two restaurants – casual dining Bee’s Knees on the ground floor and […]

Binomio "Coca" bread served with Escalivada and Baby Eel

Binomio – the best Spanish food in Singapore!

Spanish chefs say Binomio is the best Spanish in Singapore. Try saying that 20 times! Well, all I have to say is that ever since I first stepped into Binomio in 2013, I have been in love with the food here. Whether I was fine dining in the restaurant or tossing tapas into my mouth […]

Sprmkt Steak

SPRMRKT Kitchen & Bar Robertson Quay

SPRMRKT first burst onto the scene in the Raffles Place area at McCallum Street. Not exactly my regular area for lunch since I’m not a CBD chick, and somehow they didn’t seem like a dinner place either. But with their new outlet at Robertson Quay, it definitely is more up my alley for a night […]

Salt Grill Trout Featured

Salt Grill & Sky Bar – great views, great food!

Oh, yippee for Salt Grill and Sky Bar. I make it a point to celebrate the first day of the year with a memorable dinner. But it’s always a chance you take; a restaurant may have wowed you years back but it’s no guarantee of standards years later, or if you’re like me, and always […]

Phat Cat Laundry Beef rib

Phat Cat Laundry – Keong Saik’s new top cat in town

Phat Cat Laundry, a new addition to the Keong Saik area, greets you with kitschy messages asking you to “air your dirty laundry” and “let off steam”. Considering this isn’t an actual laundry but a new bar along Jiak Chuan street, no, the messages aren’t to be taken literally, of course. What you should literally […]
