Preludio – Hitting the Right Notes at Lunch

All right fine, I will admit to matching my outfit to the current culinary theme at Preludio – Monochrome. Essentially, the colours black and white dominate the presentation of the dishes, that are clearly seasonally inspired as well. Even the wines are organized according to Black (granite-based, for e.g) and White (limestone as an e.g), […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Nude Seafood Grouper in duck broth

Update: NUDE Seafood’s latest Communal Menu

{Update: 14 May 2017} One of my favourite restaurants in town, I’ve never walked out of NUDE Seafood dissatisfied. The produce is always fresh, cooking always intriguing and generosity always evident. Saw that they’ve launched a new “communal dining” concept, so we decided to check it out last Friday night. The premise is that for […]

South Union Park – fabulous bistro at Kembangan

Here’s a quick view on some of the other new highlights: {Original Post: May 28th, 2016} I am delighted that […]
