Lumbre – Fiery, New Spanish Restaurant at Chijmes

Lumbre, newly-opened at Chijmes, may, on the surface, seem to be a Spanish restaurant, but the menu certainly isn’t limited to Spanish classics. Hubby and I celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday last week with a lunch at Lumbre, and both his parents were very satisfied with the meal. So was I. The set lunch is a […]

Analogue – 100% Plant-based, Sustainable Dining

Analogue at Chijmes was my choice for last weekend’s dinner, partly because the friend I was meeting is a vegetarian, and also because I was curious about this resto-bar that is ranked 37 on the 2022 Asia’s 50 Best Bars list. Glimpsing the menu pre-booking, my meat-loving hubby was a little concerned about the prospect […]

Tonito – fiesta-worthy Latin American at Jewel

Tonito at Jewel Changi Airport hit me up for a tasting last week, promising a gastronomic tour around Latin America. Despite being an avid traveller, I’ve never made it to that part of the world. But I’ve had my fair share of LatAm food, whether it’s the classic churros, ceviche or chilli con carne. With […]

Firangi Superstar Fish

Firangi Superstar: An Enchanting Evening of Fantasy.

I have been wanting to get my ass to Firangi Superstar for a while now. Not only because of the usage of the word, Superstar, which if you know, you know is the suffix to one of India’s biggest movie stars, Rajinikanth. But also, as a fan of Wes Anderson’s quirky, fantastical movie sets, I […]

Claudine Restaurant – French Farmhouse Finesse!

Claudine Restaurant opened its doors at the end of 2021, and fans of Julien Royer (of 3-Michelin-starred Odette) would have rejoiced at the notion of more frequent visits to a more “casual” sister restaurant. Yes, it is more casual, spotted a few men in dress shorts, but make no mistake, the prices aren’t “casual”. I’d […]

The Durian Bakery MSW Chocolate Cake

The Durian Bakery – Delicious Durian Desserts!

Durian and Chocolate? That was an intriguing enough proposition for me to accept The Durian Bakery’s offer of sending me their durian-based desserts to try. After all, I look forward to durian season every year and as for chocolate, well, I bleed it. Says the girl who has been eating Nutella on toast since she […]

Terra Madre Pancakes

Terra Madre at Dempsey – “Natural” Dining, Brunch and Dinner review.

Terra Madre is a relatively new kid on the Dempsey block. Located a hop away from the main restaurant area, the “natural food” restaurant features a menu with a distinctly Aussie slant. They don’t specifically refer to their cuisine as Australian but it does send those vibes my way, for sure. It was last November […]

Gaggan Idli

I checked out top chef Gaggan Anand @ Mandala Club Singapore. Was my mind blown?

Gaggan. After all these years, I finally tried this famed chef’s take on Indian cuisine. Never planning in advance, I never made it to Gaggan during my trips to Bangkok. Bizarre considering Gaggan held the top spot in the S Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for a record-breaking 4 years running from 2015 to […]

The Spot Oyster with Ponzu sauce

The Spot – my go-to for delicious dining at great value.

The Spot is one of my favourite dining destinations in Singapore and yet, it has taken me this long to put up an actual post. I think it’s because it has become so familiar to me that I just share pictures of the fabulous food on Instagram and that’s it. During the times when we […]

Kinou Duck Margret

Kinou – Bringing me to Basque Country

Kinou brought me to the Basque Country… in spirit, at least. If not for Covid19, we would have been driving through Spanish and French Basque Country last year, visiting places such as San Sebastian and Bayonne. Alas, it was not meant to be, but Kinou to the rescue, instead. Nestled in a shophouse, located in […]
