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, […]

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, […]

Kilo Kitchen Coconut Tembleque

Kilo Kitchen – Bringing Latin/Asian flair to Duxton

Kilo Kitchen is already a well-loved name among its fans who love its Latin/Asian fare, creative cocktails and edgy, industrial vibe. It saw great success in its old location at Kampong Bugis, where Camp Kilo Charcoal Club still resides, and one of my coffee haunts Loysel’s Toy used to be. I’d be chomping down on […]

Claypots Full Circle Bar

Claypots Full Circle – “Med-Asian” seafood at Amoy Street

Claypot? No! I protested wildly on account of my lame attempt at a low-carb diet, and thinking that Claypots Full Circle was all about… well, claypot rice. Of course, I hadn’t read the string of whatsapp messages in its entirety where my friend had said that this restaurant was NOT about claypot rice, so there […]

Fat Chap Meat and Seafood Platter

Fat Chap at Suntec City – Family Gathering, anyone?

Fat Chap restaurant at Suntec bills itself as a place you go to “to get really full”. Well, I must say I did walk out quite stuffed indeed. It’s casual, bright and perfect for large groups and family gatherings. I’d probably generalize it as “Asian bistro cuisine” – you will see a wide range from […]

Jypsy Bar Counter

Jypsy – PS. Cafe’s new beachy, boho, Japanese casual dining

“I’m fuming!” she seethed, as she instructed me, while hurtling over in a Grab, on what to order at Jypsy, P.S. Café’s latest offering at 38. Martin Road. “Get me a drink, any drink will do!” she texted as I went ahead to order what every other table seemed to be having – the Nest […]

Ding Dong Pork Collar 1

Ding Dong – yummy new Mod-Asian creations!

{Update: 1 August 2018} So I know I had written about Ding Dong previously after one of my lunch sojourns with my ex-JC classmates, but what I didn’t realise was that the review was written 2 years ago and I hadn’t been back since! My… goes to show just how many options Singapore has, that […]

Yellow Pot Duck 1

Yellow Pot, Six Senses Duxton – sustainable mod-Chinese

Think Six Senses and you’re likely to think of lush resorts clinging on to the little nooks and crannies of the world, in places reeking of exoticism, such as Fiji and the Seychelles. And while at first glance, Duxton road might appear to be lined by nothing more than a stretch of bars, this area […]

Kimme Beef

Kimme – a Korean-inspired Mod European restaurant

I’ve had to crawl out of my hole to write this. It’s been a while since I have blogged: mainly because I have gone back to work full-time and simply do not have any energy to expend on this awesome hobby of mine and also because, it has to take somewhere really special for me […]

Alley on 25 Smoke and Pepper lamb burger

Alley on 25 at flashy new Andaz hotel

Part of the swish new DUO enclave, Alley on 25 at Andaz, a luxury hotel by the Hyatt group, is host to a selection of restaurants and bars. Being within close proximity to Andaz, it didn’t take me long before I sauntered in one day during lunch to check out their attractively-priced 3-course set menus. […]
