Firebake Road View

Firebake at Katong – It’s on fire, baby!

Sourdough. The stuff bread dreams are made of. And now, you can just stroll into newly-opened Firebake and get your fill of it. My night started with me challenging Firebake’s Chef Konstantino on the origins of sourdough – ignorant me had thought that it was from San Francisco, but perhaps that’s because the Americans, who […]

Brunching at Fynn’s – great way to start the weekend!

To be honest, my desire for brunching has waned a little over the past couple of years. There are only so many permutations of eggs or pancakes or French toasts that I feel like having and with my cooking skills coming up to par these days, I’m just as likely to want to Netflix and […]

South Union Park Butternut Squash Pasta

South Union Park – fabulous bistro at Kembangan

{Update: March 26th 2017} South Union Park occasionally takes time off to create, test and launch new dishes and their latest menu sees new additions like Lightly Smoked Salmon (S$23) and Squid Ink Risotto ($26). Here’s a quick view on some of the other new highlights: {Original Post: May 28th, 2016} I am delighted that […]

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 […]

Bird Bird Fried Chicken Featured

Bird Bird has flown the coop to Frankel!

Bird Bird has flown the CBD coop and is chilling out now at my East Coast hood. Specifically, along Frankel Avenue. Just opened last week, this fried chicken stalwart, is in its infancy at Frankel and is intentionally laying low while they sort out final bits and pieces. That hasn’t stopped the ravenous eaters from […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tippling Club Featured

So what if Tippling Club has been denied a star?

Many are wondering how Tippling Club was passed over for a Michelin star. But seriously, who cares? Ryan Clift and gang have been serving up thoughtful and inventive cuisine for the longest time now, and my recent visit showed no signs of the team pulling back. The word here is team. It’s not just about […]
