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 – 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 […]

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 & 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 – 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 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 […]

Travel Dreams – Best Travel Destinations 2017!

As the year rolls into another, one hopefully filled with glorious hope, I am already dreaming of where to travel to in 2017. Yes, I have been keeping an eye out for what the bigwigs of travel predict to be the best travel destinations for 2017, but my list isn’t so much about which country […]

Candlenut at Como Dempsey – Modern Peranakan

[Updated 22 December] Candlenut is now at Como Dempsey, a work-in-progress “lifestyle quarter” that will eventually house multi-label fashion store, Dover Street Market and a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten (widely-acknowledged as the creator of the molten lava cake). Asides from Candlenut, Ippoh Tempura Bar, Osaka’s oldest, premium tempura restaurant is already open as […]

This is the aunty-approved Singapore Best Restaurants 2016 food guide – The Masala Guide! I thought of writing a listicle so that Santa Google would gift me with a million hits, but decided against it.

Exploring Sydney’s Hottest Hood – Chippendale

If thoughts of bare-bodied hunks gyrating to cheesy top hits come to mind when you think Chippendale, stop right there. Or don’t. Who am I to judge? Chippendale, the hottest district in Sydney right now, is not to be confused with the famous Las Vegas male striptease performers, also known as the Chippendales. Once passed […]
