Tonito – fiesta-worthy Latin American at Jewel

Tonito at Jewel Changi Airport hit me up for a tasting last week, promising a gastronomic tour around Latin America. Despite being an avid traveller, I’ve never made it to that part of the world. But I’ve had my fair share of LatAm food, whether it’s the classic churros, ceviche or chilli con carne. With […]

Terra Madre Pancakes

Terra Madre at Dempsey – “Natural” Dining, Brunch and Dinner review.

Terra Madre is a relatively new kid on the Dempsey block. Located a hop away from the main restaurant area, the “natural food” restaurant features a menu with a distinctly Aussie slant. They don’t specifically refer to their cuisine as Australian but it does send those vibes my way, for sure. It was last November […]

The Spot Oyster with Ponzu sauce

The Spot – my go-to for delicious dining at great value.

The Spot is one of my favourite dining destinations in Singapore and yet, it has taken me this long to put up an actual post. I think it’s because it has become so familiar to me that I just share pictures of the fabulous food on Instagram and that’s it. During the times when we […]

Cloudstreet dessert

Cloudstreet – A unique culinary experience

I’ve seen chef Rishi Naleendra’s work grow through the years. I first knew of him when I visited MACA, gosh that was a long time ago, I think 5 years ago, when I was impressed by the usage of some funky ingredients in the dishes. Then came Cheek by Jowl, serving to reinforce my impression […]

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 […]

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner pork risoni

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner (new menu at Funan)

Oh that nasty word… diner. Brings images of red-pleathered booth seats, and a burly dude frying up bacon and eggs in a small town in America asking you if you’d like some fries with that. Ok, I really should not start the review with that image. The new Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner is nothing at […]

Preludio Dessert Horizontal

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), […]

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 […]

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 […]

Wakanui Lamb 2

Wakanui Grill Dining

{Update: 19 August 2018} When I visited Wakanui Grill Dining two years back at its former venue at Boat Quay, I had already thought that it was a pretty good steak place. They’ve moved to flashy Marina One now, and hubby felt like meat last Friday, so off we went for a meal. The backstory […]
