COL interior

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 […]

Catfish Fish and Laksa

Catfish restaurant – no fishy business, just the real deal!

Catfish restaurant at Gemmil Lane is the fourth venture in Singapore by Andrew Walsh, the chef-owner behind one-Michelin-starred restaurant, Cure. It opened just when the pandemic hit in March 2020, fast forward two years, and I have made my virgin visit to the (obviously) fish-focused restaurant. It’s been about that long since I saw some […]

Firangi Superstar Fish

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 Oyster with Ponzu sauce

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 […]

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 […]

Basque Kitchen Oxtail and bomba rice

Basque Kitchen by Aitor – One year and a star later.

{Update: 4 Aug 2020} On account of my hubby turning the big 5-0 this year, his brother wanted to treat us to dinner, and he chose Basque Kitchen for the occasion. We initially though it was quite fitting because we were supposed to have been in Basque Country this year in May, but on account […]

Beurre Capellini 2

Restaurant Beurre – Creative menu, room for improvement though

Beurre is new, and it shows. Having opened less than a month ago, teething problems abound and it’s best you arm yourself with some patience if you plan on dining there. Still does not a cava make. Take my aperitif for example. I had ordered a glass of cava to go with my oysters, and […]

Preludio Dessert Horizontal

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), […]

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 […]
