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 […]

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, […]

V Dining – Ryan Clift puts his vibes on new restaurant

V Dining, a newly-opened fine dining restaurant within premium home kitchen appliance V-Zug’s store, has Ryan Clift’s name and touch behind it. Being a fan of Tippling Club, I was excited to have been invited to a preview tasting at the restaurant last week. Chef Ryan, by the way, is V-Zug’s global ambassador and while […]

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 […]

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 […]
