FYR Duck Confit

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc: 3 Years Later

{UPDATE: 12 Feb 2019} Oh good, another restaurant that has maintained its chops. Three years from my first visit to FYR (previously with a rather convoluted, unpronounceable name) and I was back for Friday night dinner this time. Well, still looking busy, still friendly service. And the food, not too bad at all. Reading my […]

Kilo Kitchen Coconut Tembleque

Kilo Kitchen – Bringing Latin/Asian flair to Duxton

Kilo Kitchen is already a well-loved name among its fans who love its Latin/Asian fare, creative cocktails and edgy, industrial vibe. It saw great success in its old location at Kampong Bugis, where Camp Kilo Charcoal Club still resides, and one of my coffee haunts Loysel’s Toy used to be. I’d be chomping down on […]

Telok Ayer Arts Club

Telok Ayer Arts Club – food, drinks, music and the arts

Telok Ayer Arts Club bills itself as a multi-use arts space, built on the notion of heartland community clubs. It aims to bring together art, music, food and drink in a more accessible manner to the masses, just like what most heartland community clubs aim to do. Can we really draw that parallel, though? Well, […]

Ding Dong Pork Collar 1

Ding Dong – yummy new Mod-Asian creations!

{Update: 1 August 2018} So I know I had written about Ding Dong previously after one of my lunch sojourns with my ex-JC classmates, but what I didn’t realise was that the review was written 2 years ago and I hadn’t been back since! My… goes to show just how many options Singapore has, that […]

Luka Iwate Beef 3

Luka – My new go-to for Japanese Italian!

Luka’s website says “It’s going to be awesome” and… it was! It’s not often these days that I walk out of a restaurant being completely satisfied with the food and the price tag. The prices at Luka are so reasonable, I’m hoping they continue to maintain that even as they persist with the fabulous quality […]

Gaig entrance

Gaig’s Michelin-starred Catalan cuisine

Ok, so anyone who has met someone from Barcelona, would know that they don’t identify themselves as Spanish, rather, they speak Catalan with pride and think of themselves purely as Catalan. So heaven forbid should I mention the cuisine at Gaig as being “Spanish”. 😊 It’s Catalan cooking, through and through. When I’m asked about […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
