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 sardines 2

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 […]

IZY nokke roll

IZY a new vibe you’ve got?

The first time I heard about IZY was 3 years back when it first opened, and I heard about it via a Ferrari-driving businessman. Which explains why it took me over 2 years before I decided to try the place. That’s only because some izakaya like to pose as casual joints for people out for […]
