Morsels Cured Kingfish Side

Morsels – new digs at Dempsey but is the food any good?

Morsels. With a name like that, I had never been tempted to visit Morsels when they were at Mayo Street, also because of friends saying it’s overpriced for teeny portions. Recently though, another food-loving friend raved about the place, so I decided to finally check it out at its new digs at Dempsey. Pushing aside […]

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 […]

Eggplant Parmigiana on table

Eggplant Parmigiana – best lo-carb cheat dish ever!

This is my ultimate lo-carb, cheat dish. Just eggplants, tomatoes and copious amounts of cheese and you get a dish so decadent, you forget it’s a lo-carb dish after all. If you’re really particular, just omit the breadcrumbs to make it even more lo-carb! Try not to omit the wine though, it really adds a […]

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 […]

Ryo sushi chirashi bowl featured

Ryo Sushi – Affordable, drool-worthy omakase!

We were recommended Ryo Sushi by our Japanese-food-loving friends, so had our dinner date there last Friday. First off, bookings are essential. There are only nine seats, and three seatings – 6pm, 7.30pm and 9pm. The chef owner himself will call you to confirm the booking, so you can tell, he runs quite a tight […]

Barcelona Casa Batllo Featured

Top 10 Barcelona Highlights!

It’s easy to understand why Spain is the second most popular country to visit in Europe, after France. From Gaudi to Gastronomy, hands down Spain has got its flamboyant flamenco imprints all over it. Seville stole my heart with its small town (some might say, more authentic) Spanish feel, but Barcelona’s got me big time […]

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 […]

Wildseed featured

Wildseed at The Oval at Seletar

Wildseed at The Oval at Seletar Aerospace Park is quite the find indeed. Always on the lookout for new foodie enclaves to hang out at, I was curious about the new restaurants that are sprouting up in the secluded Seletar Aerospace Park, branded now as The Oval @ SAP. This lifestyle hub hosts other restaurants like […]
