Basque Kitchen Oxtail and bomba rice

Basque Kitchen by Aitor – One year and a star later.

{Update: 4 Aug 2020} On account of my hubby turning the big 5-0 this year, his brother wanted to treat us to dinner, and he chose Basque Kitchen for the occasion. We initially though it was quite fitting because we were supposed to have been in Basque Country this year in May, but on account […]

The Butcher's Wife Entrance

The Butcher’s Wife – Showcasing Gluten-free & Natural Wines

{Update: 7 March 2020} The Butcher’s Wife has been running their popular 5 Bites, 5 Wines monthly dinners for some time now, but I only finally discovered what the fuss was when I dined there last month. Chef Mariana Campos D’ Almeida expresses her Brazilian heritage and fermentation fascination with a good melange of Asian […]

V Hamachi Tartare

V Dining – Ryan Clift puts his vibes on new restaurant

{Update: 23 Oct 2019) V Dining is getting all snazzy with its new weekend high-tea offering at $48 per person, with free flow of coffee and teas by Tea Forte. Savoury items feature a curried lamb pastilla, the Singaporean favourite otah with turmeric and lime, and a fresh Thai Basil spring roll. Sweets include the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
