New Ubin Ribeye with Rice

New Ubin Seafood at Zhongshan Park, Balestier

New Ubin Seafood is quite the Singaporean success story indeed. Not many people might know of its humble beginnings from our offshore island of Pulau Ubin to it cementing itself in many Singaporeans’ hearts as a favourite for good zi char dining. The family-owned restaurant has had its appearances in various parts of our island, […]

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc: 3 Years Later

{UPDATE: 12 Feb 2019} Oh good, another restaurant that has maintained its chops.

Gaston – Bistro for Burgundy fans at Keong Saik

Gaston bills itself as a “burgundy bistro”. Quite clearly the focus is on its extensive range of wines from Bourgogne. So much so that even Burgundy novices can kickstart their road to the famed pinot-growing terroirs because you can find some good wines that do not cost the usual bomb that Burgundies cost. For example, […]
