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 Lamb Rump 2

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 […]

Chi Chi Dining Gyoza

ChiChi Singapore – local fare with a Japanese twist

ChiChi Dining at Amoy Street is kind of a unique find I must say. Not neatly fitting into any cuisine category, I suppose I could summarise it as being local-proud, Japanese-influenced creations. We decided to take the easy route and went for the 6-course menu at $58 per person, and I can assure you that […]

Egg dish Jaan

JAAN Singapore – Delicious, Decadent and Delightful

{Updated Post: 7 Nov 2020} Choosing Jaan to celebrate our 15th anniversary was a no-brainer. We had been twice before and always walked away feeling duly indulged. I’ll just get straight into sharing the photos from the latest encounter since the original post has more details on other aspects. It was a 6-course degustation of […]

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 […]

La dame de Pic Berlingots

La Dame de Pic Singapore {Birthday dinner}

Last year, when I was travelling around Provence, Burgundy and the Rhone region, I nearly visited the “birthplace” of the PIC restaurants – Maison PIC in Valence. The 3-Michelin-starred restaurant has remained in the Pic family for 3 generations, and has maintained its star status (losing and gaining stars along the way) since 1939 when […]

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 […]

Wagyu Beef Rossini

Kimme – a Korean-inspired Mod European restaurant

{Update: 11 Jan 2020} It’s been two years since I last visited Kimme. It’s funny reading the last paragraph of my original post below where I said I’d bring my hubby the next time. I guess it’s taken me two years, huh? Anyway, to celebrate a very important milestone, we decided on Kimme last Friday […]

Caffe Cicheti Iberico Pork Featured

Caffe Cicheti – Cruisin’ the Coasts of Italy

The Cicheti name is not new. The first restaurant holding this moniker is still going strong at Kandahar Street (Arab St / Kampong Glam area). The newer Bar Cicheti at Jiak Chuan Road was the one that helped me realise they meant serious business. I mean, a sommelier who has perfected the art of funky […]

V Hamachi Tartare

V Dining – Ryan Clift puts his vibes on new restaurant

{Update: 23 Oct 2019) V Dining is getting all snazzy with its new weekend high-tea offering at $48 per person, with free flow of coffee and teas by Tea Forte. Savoury items feature a curried lamb pastilla, the Singaporean favourite otah with turmeric and lime, and a fresh Thai Basil spring roll. Sweets include the […]
