Delicacy Tapas

Delicacy – Tapas treats at Gemmill Lane

Located along Gemmil Lane, Delicacy, a tapas place, is worth a detour off the main Club Street drag. No, it doesn’t have the requisite hipsterish industrial and cramped look of other “IT” tapas joints in Singapore. Instead, it’s pretty airy, cheery and more like you’re visiting a Spanish senorita’s home for dinner (if you don’t […]

Punjab Grill Appetizer

Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands

If even my mom can say that the food was really good, and her friend said it was “the best lunch I’ve had”, then I think you can take it that Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands is good. From the ambience to the service to the food, you will notice little touches that will […]

Tanuki Raw Herumetto Duck Confit

Tanuki Raw at Orchard Central

I’ve been a Tanuki Raw fan since the days of its launch years back, having swigged many a bubbly while scoffing down oysters during their happy hour promotions. That was also where I fell in love with some of their fabulously quirky sushi rolls like American Roll (sushi version of a cheeseburger) and Rockstar (deep […]

Freehouse Tasting Paddle

Freehouse – Craft Beers on Tap and Tasting Paddles

Whenever my hubby is thirsty, he reaches for a beer. I’m like “Thirsty? Drink water then!”. But clearly I’m not getting the point. But I think I could get it if my fridge was stocked with my new find – thanks to Freehouse, a new craft beer joint at Boon Tat Street (just above Cheek […]

Ollella Choux Platter Featured

Ollella and its pretty little choux bundles

This is probably one time I’d choose the choux over the shoe. I haven’t had much luck with choux pastry so when I heard there was a new kid on the Jalan Besar block, I just had to try. Ollella, at Petain Road, has only 7 flavours (for now) for their pretty little choux bundles, […]

National Kitchen Kuay Pie Tee

National Kitchen by Violet Oon

With a name like Violet Oon helming National Kitchen at the National Gallery, you’re pretty much guaranteed good stuff. So it’s a safe bet if you’re looking to host a family dinner or visiting friends (which kind of fits with the location being at a national monument). The whole setup really is quite gorgeous. As […]

Mr & Mrs Maxwell Bubbly and Burgers

$6 Bubbly? My kinda Happy Hours at Mr & Mrs Maxwell!

Up on Ann Siang Hill, boutique hotel, The Club, is host to four fancy spots to have a sundowner/dinner at. There’s The Disgruntled Chef, B28, Tiger’s Milk and Mr & Mrs Maxwell. We were heading towards Tiger’s Milk, the Peruvian-inspired rooftop bar, when we walked past the huge banner outside Mr & Mrs Maxwell, on […]

OCF Appetizer

OCF – Singapore Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week has always been hits and misses for me. From the spectacular (all hail Salt at Ion) to some “stellar” disappointments, I’m not always guaranteed a great meal. OCF at The Arts House is worth checking out. This is one meal where you don’t have to run off to eat prata after your dinner. […]

Curious Palette Ricotta Hotcake featured

Curious Palette Cafe at Prinsep Street

Mmm…ricotta hotcakes. The stuff fluffy dreams are made of. At Curious Palette, this is rightly their shining star of a dish. A honey-coloured hotcake, with caramel-y, crisp edges that give way to a warm, fluffy inside and topped with berries, seeds and vanilla bean ice-cream, the twenty minute wait for the Berry Ricotta Hotcake ($14.90) […]

FYR Duck Confit

Set Lunch at FYR Cycene Ond Drinc

You don’t need to know how to pronounce this restaurant’s name. Just know that FYR Cycene Ond Drinc serves up really good value for money set lunches. At just $25 for 3 courses, that’s practically a steal, considering the big portions and the CBD location of the restaurant at Boon Tat Street. You know how […]
