Candlenut Peranakan @ COMO Dempsey

The only Peranakan restaurant in the world that has achieved 1 Michelin Star is right here on our shores. Helmed by Chef Malcolm Lee, I’ve first tried Candlenut before it got its shiny star and when it was still operating at Dorsett. In comparison, I would say that food now has become more delicious and…

Burnt Ends [Asia’s No. 30] @ Teck Lim Road

In merely 3 years, Burnt Ends had soared to the top and most recently been named Asia’s Top 50 Restaurant, coming in at No. 30. The brainchild of Dave Pynt, the open kitchen is dominated by huge open ovens and grills, filled with apple and almond woods. True to its name, all the food here hits the…

[Limited Edition Premium Tonkotsu Ramen] Chabuton @ Somerset 313

Chabuton opened with much fanfare last year when it first arrived in Singapore. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s helmed by Chef Yasuji, the first-ever ramen chef to receive a Michelin Star!

Saint Pierre @ Quayside Isle, Sentosa

You may easily miss Saint Pierre if you are overly enthralled by the million-dollar waterfront view Quayside Isle offers as the fine-dining restaurant is located at a corner of the second-storey. The only member of Relais & Châteaux in Singapore, Saint Pierre is definitely not like any of the brunch places. Just a background for you, Relais &…

Wah Lok Chinese Restaurant @ Carlton Hotel

The recent facelift that Carlton Hotel had undergone is indeed a case done right. The lobby is extremely spacious, featuring a beautiful chandelier made out of blown glass – classy. Wah Lok is a Chinese restaurant that is part of Carlton Hotel and it too, was part of the hotel’s revamp. The entire look and…

Brunch: District 10 @ UE Square

My sister has always enquired for good brunch places that are kids-friendly, but I was never able to give her a convincing recommendation until my experience at District 10 Bar & Restaurant at UE Square. I can see those question marks forming in your head. Read on to see why! District 10 is certainly not new to me as…

Jaan @ Swissôtel

Jaan is the epitome of fine-dining and has been accredited to be ‘The One To Watch’ title and holds the ranking of No. 22 in the inaugural Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. That, is quite some achievement I would say. For the uninitiated, Jaan is a modern French restaurant by Chef de Cuisine Julien Royer, who highlights and…
