Claudine Restaurant opened its doors at the end of 2021, and fans of Julien Royer (of 3-Michelin-starred Odette) would have rejoiced at the notion of more frequent visits to a more “casual” sister restaurant. Yes, it is more casual, spotted a few men in dress shorts, but make no mistake, the prices aren’t “casual”. I’d […]
Terra Madre at Dempsey – “Natural” Dining, Brunch and Dinner review.
Terra Madre is a relatively new kid on the Dempsey block. Located a hop away from the main restaurant area, the “natural food” restaurant features a menu with a distinctly Aussie slant. They don’t specifically refer to their cuisine as Australian but it does send those vibes my way, for sure. It was last November […]
Moonbow – New Fine-Dining at Dempsey
It has been a while since I’ve checked out a new, fine-dining restaurant. I’ve been revisiting familiar places, either out of laziness or just not being interested in any of the new openings over the past few months.

Recently though, another food-loving friend raved about the place, so I decided to finally check it out at its new digs at Dempsey. Pushing aside […]
Candlenut at Como Dempsey – Modern Peranakan
[Updated 22 December] Candlenut is now at Como Dempsey, a work-in-progress “lifestyle quarter” that will eventually house multi-label fashion store, Dover Street Market and a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten (widely-acknowledged as the creator of the molten lava cake). Asides from Candlenut, Ippoh Tempura Bar, Osaka’s oldest, premium tempura restaurant is already open as […]
