New Ubin Seafood, New Digs at Tampines

{Update: 24 Oct 2019} New Ubin Seafood, or rather just New Ubin, is bringing its Truly Singaporean, zi char cooking to Tampines. Not just any old place in Tampines, but the most far-flung, hidden space possible, at an industrial park. With the closure of the outlet at another distant place, Hillview, and with only the […]

The Summerhouse Beef Brisket 2

The Summerhouse – Countryside Dining in Seletar

I visited The Summerhouse’s location at The Oval at Seletar Aerospace when it first opened around two years ago. Then, there were just a couple of places operating, such as Wildseed Café which I visited and reviewed, and Young’s. I have not trekked my way back to Seletar till last Friday night. On account of […]

Wakanui Beef Bourguignon

Wakanui | Bouchard Père et Fils Wine Dinner

I’m already a fan of Wakanui, having visited its old haunt along Boat Quay, and then again when it moved into classier digs smack in the CBD at Marina One. So, when an EDM popped into my inbox about a wine dinner at Wakanui, I knew I had to make a reservation. Not only because […]

Le Galion Beaune Boeuf Bourguignon

Top Burgundy Restaurants For Your Wine Vacation

Burgundy is the dream, isn’t it? Oenophiles, what can I say – the best wines (in my biased opinion) come from Burgundy and foodies, welcome to the land of hearty, French country cooking. For my recent trip to Burgundy in July, I spent hours researching on the best places to eat. Considering that I had […]

Souffle cover image

Soufflé, soufflé, all the way.

The one thing I didn’t get a chance to eat on my recent foodie adventure to Provence and Burgundy was a soufflé. And I was reminded of that by the constant infiltration of pictures of fluffy, tall soufflés blowing up my IG, with enticing names such as Lobster and Laksa. So yes, a visit to […]

Beurre Capellini 2

Restaurant Beurre – Creative menu, room for improvement though

Beurre is new, and it shows. Having opened less than a month ago, teething problems abound and it’s best you arm yourself with some patience if you plan on dining there. Still does not a cava make. Take my aperitif for example. I had ordered a glass of cava to go with my oysters, and […]

Ma Cuisine Singapore Coq au Vin

Ma Cuisine – Singapore & Beaune, Burgundy

Just how much can a pigeon tell you about a restaurant? In the case of Ma Cuisine, quite a lot, it would seem. That one dish alone sums up the differences between the two Ma Cuisines in the world – in Singapore and Beaune, Burgundy. I was planning to write a story of a father […]

Shang Social Interior

Shang Social at Jewel Changi Airport

Seeing as how the rain vortex at Jewel Changi Airport had been blowing up my Instagram, I wasn’t exactly planning to visit Singapore’s latest attraction anytime soon. But I had received an invite to check out Shang Social, the Shangri-La group’s first-ever standalone dining setup outside of its hotel settings, so off I went. It […]

Bar Cicheti_Hokkaido Scallops Bucatini pasta

Bar Cicheti for a Pasta Fiesta!

If the thought of stuffing your face with copious amounts of pasta doesn’t intimidate you, then Bar Cicheti is for you. I’m not a fan of pizza so I’ve yet to visit the “original” venue of Cicheti at Kandahar Street which prides itself on its wood-fired pizzas. Lust after pasta, however, that I do. So […]
