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 […]

Shang Social Interior

Shang Social at Jewel Changi Airport

Seeing as how the rain vortex at Jewel Changi Airport had been blowing up my Instagram, I wasn’t exactly planning to visit Singapore’s latest attraction anytime soon. But I had received an invite to check out Shang Social, the Shangri-La group’s first-ever standalone dining setup outside of its hotel settings, so off I went. It […]

Bar Cicheti_Hokkaido Scallops Bucatini pasta

Bar Cicheti for a Pasta Fiesta!

If the thought of stuffing your face with copious amounts of pasta doesn’t intimidate you, then Bar Cicheti is for you. I’m not a fan of pizza so I’ve yet to visit the “original” venue of Cicheti at Kandahar Street which prides itself on its wood-fired pizzas. Lust after pasta, however, that I do. So […]

Jag Pigeon 2

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
