Jag Pigeon 2

Jag Restaurant – Highlighting Herbs in a Special Way!

Before I start raving about how wonderful Restaurant Jag was, let me just apologise in advance for my atrocious pictures. Firstly, it was my birthday dinner. So you can imagine, taking pictures and being overly fastidious about it was certainly not my priority. Secondly, the dim lighting that makes Restaurant Jag oh-so-cosy also made my […]

Preludio – Hitting the Right Notes at Lunch

All right fine, I will admit to matching my outfit to the current culinary theme at Preludio – Monochrome. Essentially, the colours black and white dominate the presentation of the dishes, that are clearly seasonally inspired as well. Even the wines are organized according to Black (granite-based, for e.g) and White (limestone as an e.g), […]

Yan Cantonese Restaurant Set Lunch

Yan was an unlikely choice for lunch with a friend of mine. Unlikely, only because when faced with the question of where to have lunch, my brain just doesn’t gear itself to picking a Cantonese restaurant. It just starts whirring around on where to find a good set lunch – and most of the time, […]

Basque Kitchen Txuleta

Basque Kitchen by Aitor – Hello Basque Country!

Date night before hubby flew off to Seattle for a week saw us dining at Basque Kitchen by Aitor last Saturday. Familiar as we are with the cuisine of Spain, we were nevertheless pleasantly surprised with a couple of not-as-commonplace dishes found in the many Spanish, particularly tapas, restaurants in Singapore. Taking over the space […]

V Dining – Ryan Clift puts his vibes on new restaurant

V Dining, a newly-opened fine dining restaurant within premium home kitchen appliance V-Zug’s store, has Ryan Clift’s name and touch behind it. Being a fan of Tippling Club, I was excited to have been invited to a preview tasting at the restaurant last week. Chef Ryan, by the way, is V-Zug’s global ambassador and while […]

Ginett Facade

{Update} Ginett Weekend Brunch Affair

{Update: February 25, 2019} For someone who doesn’t have too many “regular” haunts, eschewing such loyal behaviour for the flightiness of a food hunter, Ginett has surprisingly seen my face more times than I can remember. My original post was written two years back when they first opened, and they had some teething problems with […]

New Ubin Garlic Crab

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 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 […]

La Bonne Table – Katong’s lovely new French Bistro

La Bonne Table is a new addition to the ever-exciting East Coast enclave. Bringing homecooked French flair to this area where none has existed thus far. Opened by the husband and wife team of Manon and Andrea, who come from the South of France, the restaurant clearly references the charming décor of a pretty countryside […]

Tapas Club Quail Egg Chorizo 2

Tapas Club (Orchard Central) – Keeping it Real!

Tapas Club at Orchard Central is one of those restaurants that I’ve let slip through my fingers. Only because of my love affair with what I believe to be the best Spanish in Singapore, Binomio. My reasoning is illogical, since Tapas Club was created by the Executive Chef at Binomio, Jose Angel Alonso, after all. […]
