Ammakase: Amma delivers her love, Omakase-style!

Ammakase bills itself as the World’s first Neo-Indian Omakase Fine Dining Experience. Setting aside the mouthful of words, you had me at Ammakase, folks. I stumbled upon this most curious of monikers while searching for a new place to enjoy a birthday lunch with a dear friend. Well, first I exploded with glee. I mean, […]

Tribal: Let’s Get Communal at Fiery New Modern Asian Restaurant!

Tribal highlights the smoky, sexy allure of wood-fire cooking, using Asian ingredients made into everything from sambals to salsas, glazes to garnishes. The latest initiative from the Ebb & Flow group (the folks behind the superb Willow and Sommer) launched in January 2024 at the recently-opened Mondrian Singapore Duxton. By the way, the group is […]

Barood – Is it really a Latin-Indian izakaya?

Barood, from the same team behind acclaimed Revolver, bills itself as a Latin-Indian izakaya. Latin, Indian, Japanese? This I had to try! My friends and I decided to enjoy the latest Restaurant Week menu a couple of weekends back – a good chance to try some of their highlights at $89 per person. I must […]

Cenzo pasta

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 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

{CLOSED} 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

{CLOSED} 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 […]
