Man Man Unagi Featured

Man Man Unagi by Teppei – Unagi Heaven!

So, the thought of queuing for 30 minutes under the mid-day sun certainly didn’t sound appealing to me, and when I arrived at Man Man Unagi, my first comment was to ask my friend if she wanted to head elsewhere. After all, we were at the Keong Saik area and plenty other options are available […]

Salted & Hung Trout

Salted & Hung – Cured, Smoked, Fermented, you name it, you got it!

{UPDATED 25 September} Tried Salted & Hung’s lunch set the other day, and was very pleased! As I was making use of a Chope promotion, it was only $25 for a 3-course set, but even without the promotion, and at a $35 for a 3-course lunch, I would say lunch at Salted & Hung is […]

FOC Squid Ink Paella

FOC Restaurant – Savour that Spanish!

It’s taken me this long to write about FOC – one of my favourite tapas joints in Singapore because…I’ve never sat at their bar counter! The point of that is, the table seatings have dim, romantic lighting, all the better to gaze into your partner’s eyes as you tapas the night away, but not all […]

Terra Scallops

Terra – Tokyo Italian, Set Lunch Review

Terra – Tokyo Italian cuisine at Tras Street. My good friend, Howard Lo, was the first to introduce me to Japanese Italian fare 10 years back, and no, I wasn’t a fan. Consisting mostly of pastas with dubious sauces, I seriously doubted my buddy’s taste. But I’ll eat my words as Howard is the owner […]

Cheek By Jowl Duck Waffles Featured

Review – Cheek by Jowl

Update – 23 August: Tried their very-worth-it set lunch. A choice between 2-course at $30 or 3-course at $38, featuring some of their classics like the Cured Ocean Trout and Barramundi. We had the earthy Salt-baked Beetroot with creamy goat’s cheese and the Roasted Quail as starters. Both dishes were delicious, nice contrast of textures […]

The Kitchen Bacchanalia Lamb

Brilliant flavours at The Kitchen at Bacchanalia

The Kitchen at Bacchanalia received a 1-star nod from the Michelin inspectors for the inaugural 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore. And well-deserved, might I add! Reminding me of similar 1-starred restaurants in cities like San Francisco, The Kitchen at Bacchanalia has an edgy vibe, thanks to the open kitchen and all its accompanying culinary energy placed […]

Momor Yuzu Sabayon

Mo’mor Izakaya at Tanglin

Update – 20 August 2016: Happy to report on Mo’Mor Izakaya’s new Happy Hours! $5 deal on selected wines, beers, sake cocktails, whiskey and vodka, daily from 5-7pm. All the more reason to be super-productive at work and rush on down to Mo’Mor Izakaya! Original Post – 12 May 2016: It was a fabulous gal pal’s […]

The Song of India Tandoori Lobster

The Song of India – star worthy?

The Song of India was bestowed a star by the inaugural 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore and is the only Indian fine dining restaurant to have been awarded with a star by the guide. Not to take anything away from The Song of India, but why them over other favourites like Yantra or Punjab Grill is […]

Humpback Brunch_featured

Humpback – a different kind of Sunday Brunch

It’s always great to see exciting new options for Sunday brunch. Especially when it comes to the perennial favourite, Eggs Benedict. How refreshing to see a version that goes beyond the usual ham or smoked salmon toppings. At Humpback, you get Eggs Benedict ($12) with a twist – with crab and avocado. Two of my […]

El Tardeo View

Great value for money tapas at El Tardeo

It wasn’t too long ago that the mention of tapas would make me want to tabao hokkien prawn mee rather than pay so much for such tiny portions. I used to think tapas was a rip off in Singapore. But either it’s me getting older (you know what they say, you can’t eat that much […]
