Cenzo pasta

Cenzo – new foray from former Salted & Hung chef.

Cenzo is the new restaurant from chef Drew Nocente, formerly of the awesome nose-to-tail dining outfit, Salted & Hung which shuttered its doors a few months ago. Mixing his Aussie-Italian heritage into the dishes, expect the modern inflections of Aussie cooking with the classic and produce-driven focus of Italian food. My school friends and I […]

COL Restaurant – Bangin’ on the Wood-fired!

Walking into COL, we were greeted by friendly faces and promptly shown to our table, in the middle of the hubbub of action. Spotting a few vacant seats by the windows, I asked if it would be possible for us to move, and were politely informed that “those seats are reserved for VIPs and media […]

Catfish Fish and Laksa

Catfish restaurant – no fishy business, just the real deal!

Catfish restaurant at Gemmil Lane is the fourth venture in Singapore by Andrew Walsh, the chef-owner behind one-Michelin-starred restaurant, Cure. It opened just when the pandemic hit in March 2020, fast forward two years, and I have made my virgin visit to the (obviously) fish-focused restaurant. It’s been about that long since I saw some […]

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 […]
