Marguerite is a perfect spot for a special occasion, it’s as simple as that. Nestled within the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, you’re immediately transported to a lush verdant setting as an aura of calm descends upon you. The wait staff certainly contribute to that. They are welcoming and warm, no need to […]
Cenzo – new foray from former Salted & Hung chef.
Cenzo is the new restaurant from chef Drew Nocente, formerly of the awesome nose-to-tail dining outfit, Salted & Hung which shuttered its doors a few months ago. Mixing his Aussie-Italian heritage into the dishes, expect the modern inflections of Aussie cooking with the classic and produce-driven focus of Italian food. My school friends and I […]
COL Restaurant – Bangin’ on the Wood-fired!
Walking into COL, we were greeted by friendly faces and promptly shown to our table, in the middle of the hubbub of action. Spotting a few vacant seats by the windows, I asked if it would be possible for us to move, and were politely informed that “those seats are reserved for VIPs and media […]
Lumbre – Fiery, New Spanish Restaurant at Chijmes
Lumbre, newly-opened at Chijmes, may, on the surface, seem to be a Spanish restaurant, but the menu certainly isn’t limited to Spanish classics. Hubby and I celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday last week with a lunch at Lumbre, and both his parents were very satisfied with the meal. So was I. The set lunch is a […]
Analogue – 100% Plant-based, Sustainable Dining
Analogue at Chijmes was my choice for last weekend’s dinner, partly because the friend I was meeting is a vegetarian, and also because I was curious about this resto-bar that is ranked 37 on the 2022 Asia’s 50 Best Bars list. Glimpsing the menu pre-booking, my meat-loving hubby was a little concerned about the prospect […]
Firangi Superstar: An Enchanting Evening of Fantasy.
I have been wanting to get my ass to Firangi Superstar for a while now. Not only because of the usage of the word, Superstar, which if you know, you know is the suffix to one of India’s biggest movie stars, Rajinikanth. But also, as a fan of Wes Anderson’s quirky, fantastical movie sets, I […]
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 […]
Kinou – Bringing me to Basque Country
Kinou brought me to the Basque Country… in spirit, at least. If not for Covid19, we would have been driving through Spanish and French Basque Country last year, visiting places such as San Sebastian and Bayonne. Alas, it was not meant to be, but Kinou to the rescue, instead. Nestled in a shophouse, located in […]
FLNT: Tasty Treats and a Twinkling Skyline
FLNT @1-Atico is all about Nikkei cuisine, a mash-up of Peruvian ingredients prepared with Japanese techniques. Nikkei traditionally refers to Japanese people living out of Japan but it’s increasingly mentioned in relation to dining as Nikkei cuisine. It was my hubby’s birthday, and we decided on FLNT for dinner. FLNT bills itself as Singapore’s “sole […]
Persea – low-carb, no guilt enjoyment!
All right, all my low-carb dreams are coming true with Persea. They aren’t exclusively low-carb but they are carb-conscious, indicating how many pesky carbs there are in each dish. Ok, just to set the record straight, I’m a carb-lover. Way too much of one, which is why it’s imperative for me to have a low-carb […]
