FLNT Lamb Rack

FLNT: Tasty Treats and a Twinkling Skyline

FLNT @1-Atico is all about Nikkei cuisine, a mash-up of Peruvian ingredients prepared with Japanese techniques. Nikkei traditionally refers to Japanese people living out of Japan but it’s increasingly mentioned in relation to dining as Nikkei cuisine. It was my hubby’s birthday, and we decided on FLNT for dinner. FLNT bills itself as Singapore’s “sole […]

Persea Lamb Rump 2

Persea – low-carb, no guilt enjoyment!

All right, all my low-carb dreams are coming true with Persea. They aren’t exclusively low-carb but they are carb-conscious, indicating how many pesky carbs there are in each dish. Ok, just to set the record straight, I’m a carb-lover. Way too much of one, which is why it’s imperative for me to have a low-carb […]

Moonbow Beef Shortribs 2

Moonbow – New Fine-Dining at Dempsey

It has been a while since I’ve checked out a new, fine-dining restaurant. I’ve been revisiting familiar places, either out of laziness or just not being interested in any of the new openings over the past few months. But I decided to make a little more effort for lunch last week, and did an online […]

Chi Chi Dining Gyoza

ChiChi Singapore – local fare with a Japanese twist

ChiChi Dining at Amoy Street is kind of a unique find I must say. Not neatly fitting into any cuisine category, I suppose I could summarise it as being local-proud, Japanese-influenced creations. We decided to take the easy route and went for the 6-course menu at $58 per person, and I can assure you that […]

Egg dish Jaan

JAAN Singapore – Delicious, Decadent and Delightful

{Updated Post: 7 Nov 2020} Choosing Jaan to celebrate our 15th anniversary was a no-brainer. We had been twice before and always walked away feeling duly indulged. I’ll just get straight into sharing the photos from the latest encounter since the original post has more details on other aspects. It was a 6-course degustation of […]

Cloudstreet dessert

Cloudstreet – A unique culinary experience

I’ve seen chef Rishi Naleendra’s work grow through the years. I first knew of him when I visited MACA, gosh that was a long time ago, I think 5 years ago, when I was impressed by the usage of some funky ingredients in the dishes. Then came Cheek by Jowl, serving to reinforce my impression […]

Basque Kitchen Oxtail and bomba rice

Basque Kitchen by Aitor – One year and a star later.

{Update: 4 Aug 2020} On account of my hubby turning the big 5-0 this year, his brother wanted to treat us to dinner, and he chose Basque Kitchen for the occasion. We initially though it was quite fitting because we were supposed to have been in Basque Country this year in May, but on account […]

Yantra Biryani

Yantra’s Fine Dining Indian Food Delivery

Yantra has always been one of my favourite restaurants. Granted, I don’t frequently head out for Indian cuisine, after all, my mom is a super cook (which Indian wouldn’t say their mom’s cooking is the best?) but when I do, I have a few favourites in the Indian fine dining scene in Singapore. I discovered […]

La dame de Pic Berlingots

La Dame de Pic Singapore {Birthday dinner}

Last year, when I was travelling around Provence, Burgundy and the Rhone region, I nearly visited the “birthplace” of the PIC restaurants – Maison PIC in Valence. The 3-Michelin-starred restaurant has remained in the Pic family for 3 generations, and has maintained its star status (losing and gaining stars along the way) since 1939 when […]

The Butcher's Wife Entrance

The Butcher’s Wife – Showcasing Gluten-free & Natural Wines

{Update: 7 March 2020} The Butcher’s Wife has been running their popular 5 Bites, 5 Wines monthly dinners for some time now, but I only finally discovered what the fuss was when I dined there last month. Chef Mariana Campos D’ Almeida expresses her Brazilian heritage and fermentation fascination with a good melange of Asian […]
