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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Butcher's Wife Entrance

The Butcher’s Wife – Gluten-free dining

All my gluten-fearing friends can now make an appointment with The Butcher’s Wife for sustenance. Taking over the spot formerly occupied by another Spa Esprit Group restaurant, Open Door Policy, which interestingly was also heading down the GF path, so not sure why the cosmetic change and the closing of that door, but it doesn’t […]

Jaan Featured

JAAN Singapore – Delicious, Decadent and Delightful

My very first time at Jaan was around 14 years ago, when my boyfriend (my darling hubby now) had brought me there on a date. Back then, we were all about exploring the latest fine dining places, so we would go around trying new restaurants, never mind the fact that back in the day, there […]

Tablescape Lobster Monkfish

Tablescape Grand Park City Hall – A Hidden Gem

{Update: 1 August} I have been meaning to update my review on Tablescape. Seeing as how I had sung its praises previously, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be as inclined to do so anymore. The chef from that time has left, and the last time I visited for lunch, the selection for the lunch sets had […]

Audace Leek

{Closed} Audace – Bold, Bright and Beautiful

Audace, inspired by the word “audacious” isn’t quite the brazen-faced swashbuckler one might expect. I’d say more bold than brash, the dishes here are tinged with just that bit of daring. Located at what used to be Cocotte at the Wanderlust hotel in Little India, Audace is helmed by Jeremy Gillon who has headed and […]

Atlas Beef 2

Atlas Bar and Restaurant’s Decadent Lunch

One does not necessarily think of food when one thinks of Atlas. More likely to come to mind is its impressive Art Deco inspired setting – it’s not completely unthinkable to lose oneself in its splendid grandeur, sinking deep into the plush emerald couches, drunk on all the intricate gold-embellished décor of Atlas. And with […]
