Senmi Sushi Bar @ Emporium Shokuhin, Marina Square

As mentioned in my previous post on Umi + Vino, I’m a huge fan of Emporium Shokuhin – the latest Japanese megamarket with a total of 7 restaurant concepts and this is my 2nd post of the series! I’ll be introducing the Senmi Sushi Bar, located within the market itself. It’s a pretty huge space, complete…

Coriander Leaf @ Chjimes

Through the continuous change of the F&B landscape, Coriander Leaf has withstood time, since 2001 when it was established. It came a long way from its first outlet at Gallery Hotel, and now a newly-opened modern space at Chjimes. Taking over the old space where Sun with Moon used to be at, this new restaurant…

Gourmet Greens Week Restaurant Trail 2015

Many of you would have heard of Restaurant Week, but have you heard of Gourmet Greens Week? From 23 to 29 November, you can experience ‘green fine-dining’ as Gourmet Greens Week brings to you the natural, pristine beauty of vegetables on a plate, presented by FIJI Water and Chope. You’ll be able to find Singapore’s hottest restaurants…

[New Menu] Halia @ Singapore Botanic Gardens

Fun fact: Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens was established in 2001 – that’s a whopping 14 years! Before this tasting, I was oblivious to the rich history Halia possesses, which includes the numerous awards and accolades garnered for its excellence in food, service and unique dining ambience. I have been to its second outlet at…

[Sunday Brunch] Jim Thompson Thai Restaurant @ Dempsey

When it comes to Thai fine-dining restaurants in Singapore, there are only a few that I know of (do share with me if you know any). One of my constant favourites include Thanying at Amara Hotel and second, Jim Thompson. Tucked away from the noisy rows of restaurants at Dempsey Hill, Jim Thompson provides a serenity that…

[Dinner] BRIDGE Restaurant & Bar @ Seah Street

It definitely wasn’t love at first sight at BRIDGE. I was here for a food-tasting session for the launch of their dinner set menu and by the end of the night, I was sold. Completely sold. Lawrence (pictured with his wife above), banker-turned-restauranteur, took time to sit down with us for the entire dinner session and…

Review of 3 Japanese Concept Restaurants: Eat At Seven @ Suntec City

Eat At Seven is a bold and brand new concept at Suntec City, backed by global partners and renowned chefs. Essentially, you’ll find a total of 7 concept restaurants hailing from Japan under one roof. From a specialised sushi restaurant to a cosy Japanese-themed café, one visit here is definitely not enough. In fact, ANA,…

Crab in da Bag [New Outlet] @ Sports Hub

Riding the wave of success since its first introduction in 2013 at Big Splash (read my first post on Crab in da Bag back then), the second branch of Crab in da Bag is proud to open its doors at the Singapore Sports Hub, bigger and better! The interior is fittingly decorated with a nautical theme…

MAY MAY @ Tras Street

Many would have heard of the delicious rice bowls MAY MAY serves for lunch, but do you know their dinner is pretty epic too? When you enter the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by the heavenly combination of marble and wood. There’s a light well in the middle of the restaurant and even an air-plant wall…

Superstar K Korean BBQ @ Circular Road

Before I start my essay, let me just say that I’m glad to be back after a rather long hiatus mainly due to two back-to-back long vacations, followed by some unprecedented problems in life. But guess what? I’m back on Foodiepink full steam and with more determination ever to continue my Eastern Europe series… as well as…

A.e.i.o.u Café @ King George’s Avenue

When I first saw the café name, I foolishly tried pronouncing it, without realising that it was a sequence of vowels – A.E.I.O.U. At a.e.i.o.u, they go back to basics, where a space is re-created to connect its customers to the nature and to bring back childhood memories with many vintage collectables. Their menu consists…

1 Market by Chef Wan @ Plaza Singapura

1 Market has been on my to-eat list for the longest time and I’ve finally gotten the chance to at Chef Wan’s special Nyonya Fair and even got to meet the celebrity chef in person! An international Halal buffet spread, 1 Market offers a wide variety of food and with the Nyonya Fair held till 31…

Sinpopo Brand @ Joo Chiat Road

Many would not have known, but Sinpopo is actually by the same group of people behind Awfully Chocolate! They seem to take root at Katong with Ninethirty by Awfully Chocolate just a stone’s throw away from Sinpopo and their HQ down the same road. Taking the old-school, vintage route, the interior is reminiscent of the…

Paddy Hills Café @ South Buona Vista Road

I’m pretty sure Paddy Hills’ address will ring a bell to many Singaporeans as this is where the long-running and famous South Buona Vista Duck Rice used to stand. A 360 degree overhaul was given to this space, bringing a whole new lease of life to it. Apart from its drop-dead gorgeous interior design (which you’ll see later), Paddy…

Sankai Japanese Restaurant @ Liang Seah Street

After a short hiatus from the dizzying celebrations of CNY, I’m back! Not too sure if you guys know about this place yet, but Sankai Restaurant serves up really affordable Japanese food for dinner. If you see those huge posters, up to 70% worth of discounts are thrown in for the dinner menu. Read on…

Shang Palace Chinese Restaurant @ Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore

When it comes to dimsum, I must say that we’re spoilt for choice! Having tried many Chinese restaurants in hotels, I must say that each has their own specialties and worth a second, third and etc. visits. During my birthday last year (oops, overdue again), my family headed to Shang Palace for lunch. Surprisingly, the…

Pince & Pints @ Duxton Road

I finally had the long-awaited meal at Pince & Pints over Christmas last year (which really felt not too long ago). If you haven’t yet heard… Pince & Pints is a lobster specialty restaurant owned by Velda Tan and her husband, Frederick Yap. Think the names sound familiar? They’re none other than the great people…

Table At 7 by Karl & Eugenia @ Mohammed Sultan Road

Sandwiched between The Patissier and Chikuwa Tei, Table at 7 does not stand out from its shopfront as compared to its more-famous neighbours. I’ve heard about this restaurant from my sister, who was raving about their Indonesian dishes. Unlike fusion restaurants, Table at 7 utilises a two-prong approach. The husband (Karl) and wife (Eugenia) behind this restaurant…

Tatsu Teppanyaki @ Chijmes

Even though Tatsu has been around for more than a decade, I’ve only tried it when it joined the revamp at Chijmes. The restaurant is tiny but polished, with a sushi counter right at the front and the teppanyaki counter hidden behind. Less than 20-seater, the teppanyaki counter was crowded and advanced booking is advised. There were 2…

Breeze Restaurant @ Lebua Hotel, Bangkok

Lebua is an impressive Five-Star hotel with various dining options at the top of the building. Asian cuisine at Breeze was the choice for dinner. We were seated at the lounge area before being invited to take the ‘purple walkway to heaven’. A stunning view that greeted us from the purple walkway. It was definitely a…
