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 […]

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 […]

Jag Restaurant – Highlighting Herbs in a Special Way!

Before I start raving about how wonderful Restaurant Jag was, let me just apologise in advance for my atrocious pictures. Firstly, it was my birthday dinner. So you can imagine, taking pictures and being overly fastidious about it was certainly not my priority. Secondly, the dim lighting that makes Restaurant Jag oh-so-cosy also made my […]

Ginett Facade

{Update} Ginett Weekend Brunch Affair

{Update: February 25, 2019} For someone who doesn’t have too many “regular” haunts, eschewing such loyal behaviour for the flightiness of a food hunter, Ginett has surprisingly seen my face more times than I can remember. My original post was written two years back when they first opened, and they had some teething problems with […]

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 […]

Gaston Exterior 3

Gaston – Bistro for Burgundy fans at Keong Saik

Gaston bills itself as a “burgundy bistro”. Quite clearly the focus is on its extensive range of wines from Bourgogne. So much so that even Burgundy novices can kickstart their road to the famed pinot-growing terroirs because you can find some good wines that do not cost the usual bomb that Burgundies cost. For example, […]

Atout Dessert 2

Atout – Classic French Bistro Dining at Dempsey

Atout certainly has all the trappings of a “pretty” night out. Just its location at the former grounds of Au Petit Salut is one huge hint about how charming the place is going to be. You’re surrounded by greenery, the vibe inside is bistro style and it just has a certain “je ne sais quoi” […]

L'atelier De Joel Robuchon Singapore Decor

My Love Affair with Joel

{Update: 7 August 2018} Sadly, Chef Joel Robuchon has passed away. He died of cancer on 6 August 2018. He was 73. Still, his legacy lives on, not just in his eponymous restaurants, but in the spirits of many other chefs he had trained. {Update: 22 July 2016} And the stars keep shining on for […]

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 […]
