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 […]

Telok Ayer Arts Club

Telok Ayer Arts Club – food, drinks, music and the arts

Telok Ayer Arts Club bills itself as a multi-use arts space, built on the notion of heartland community clubs. It aims to bring together art, music, food and drink in a more accessible manner to the masses, just like what most heartland community clubs aim to do. Can we really draw that parallel, though? Well, […]

Fat Chap Meat and Seafood Platter

Fat Chap at Suntec City – Family Gathering, anyone?

Fat Chap restaurant at Suntec bills itself as a place you go to “to get really full”. Well, I must say I did walk out quite stuffed indeed. It’s casual, bright and perfect for large groups and family gatherings. I’d probably generalize it as “Asian bistro cuisine” – you will see a wide range from […]

Sideways Entrance

Sideways – Mediterranean at Little India

Sideways. The name of a movie about the great pinot noir. Also the name of a newly-opened restaurant in the Little India/Jalan Besar area. Housed where the fabulous Broadcast HQ used to hang, the place is now half-restaurant, half-gallery – all in a bricked-up space that exudes an industrial yet cosy vibe. I say cosy […]

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 […]

Blackwattle Cover

{CLOSED} Blackwattle – Mod Oz experiments at Amoy Street

{Update: 4 August 2018} I’m having a sense of deja vu now. I feel like I had just raved about another wonderful Mod-Oz restaurant, and then it closed soon after (that was 13 Duxton Hill). And now, it’s Blackwattle’s turn. Re-reading my review below, I can’t help but feel a loss for this closure. Blackwattle […]

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 […]

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 […]

Odette at National Gallery Singapore

Odette. Pretty as a peach, Odette. 2-Michelin-starred Odette. Singapore’s top restaurant (according to the Pellegrino list), Odette. Certainly, the accolades have been raining down on Odette the past couple of years. Chef Julien Royer, formerly from fine dining pseudo training school, Jaan, is the poster boy for French finesse with a touch of Asia. It’s […]
