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…

Blue Bali @ Cluny Road

Want a quick escape from the concrete jungle that we live in? Here’s one place that I’m very proud to introduce you to, where you can truly be transported to the island of Bali and let your hair down. Nestled at the NUS Law Campus at Bukit Timah is Blue Bali,  where the front of…

The HungryGoWhere Awards Season Food Trail

The HungryGoWhere Awards Season is back! Remember the inaugural ‘100% people’s choice’ food and beverage awards last year? We saw Chye Seng Huat Hardware being voted as “Best Café for Coffee” and Wild Rocket for “Best Modern Singaporean Restaurant”. This year, we want to gather all foodies again to celebrate our hawker, restaurants, cafés and…

Umi + Vino @ Emporium Shokushin, Marina Square

Emporium Shokuhin at Marina Square opened with much fanfare as it is the largest Japanese supermarket in Singapore yet, with live seafood and premium meat cuts available for purchase. There are 7 Japanese dining concepts under its wing, specialising in namely sushi, ramen & gyoza, shabu-shabu, cold seafood and a fine-dining restaurant. I’ve tried 3…

Cherry Garden Chinese Restaurant @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel

Cherry Garden has always been one of those places that is synonymous to Chinese fine-dining. This is my second post on Cherry Garden and I’ll be sharing with you their Weekend Dimsum Buffet! Available on Saturdays and Sundays, with 2 seatings available, the first at 11.30am and second at 2.30pm, it is priced at $64.90++ per head. It…

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,…

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc @ Boon Tat Street

An extremely uncommon name for a restaurant, FYR (pronounced as fire) is definitely a character of its own. When you enter the back part of the restaurant bar, you’ll enter a time warp, to a time where human evoluation came about – vividly depicted by the full-wall murals. You can bet that the first word the…

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…

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…

SandBank @ Parkland Green, East Coast Park

Good news for the Easties, a whole stretch of new F&B outlets (with ample parking space for free) has opened at East Coast Park, where the golf driving range used to stand, and aptly named Park Greenland! It’s like a mini Quayside Isle in the East. You can find bars and restaurants in XXL sizes…

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…

Christmas Menu: Morganfield’s @ Star Vista

Back when I was still in school, I used to come to Star Vista often and Morganfield’s was one of the places I hang out at for their value-for-money set lunches. A year on, I’m back to try their new and exclusive Christmas Menu (oh how time flies)! The restaurant exuded a laid-back and unpretentious atmosphere, with…

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…

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill @ One Fullerton

Occupying the corner unit of One Fullerton, The Pelican’s al-fresco bar provides respite for the working crowd even before the sun sets. Famous for the fresh seafood, the entire restaurant has subtle elements of the marine life. They have both ala-carte and bar food menus for those looking at finger food. Also, that’s a real sleek…

Potato Head Folk @ Keong Saik Road

I’m really proud of this photograph which encapsulates what Potato Head Folk is all about. It occupies the entire 4 levels of this gentrified building built in 1939, offering different experiences at each level. The first floor serves as the kitchen, as well as al-fresco dining, the second being the main dining area (Three Buns Restaurant) while…

Bedrock Bar & Grill @ Pan Pacific Suites

Bedrock Bar & Grill is well-acclaimed for its delicious steaks and honestly, I’ve been pretty daunted by the prices! However, after this experience, I’m set to head back for more meat. From the front of the house, the restaurant looks tiny. The walkway leading to the back was narrow and dim, leading to a larger space…

Smoke House Charcoal BBQ Buffet @ Great World City

We see throngs of Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore but when it comes to Japanese BBQ, the choices are rather limited. Smoke House Charcoal BBQ is under the same management as Kuriya, thus it is unsurprising that it serves the best quality food. I was here for their Japanese Wagyu Beef BBQ Dinner Buffet and I was more than impressed…

Charly T’s @ 112 Katong Mall

Charly T’s – a name that I would associate an American restaurant chain with. But no, Charly T’s is in fact a home-grown brand by Charly himself, no less. Nestled in the third level of 112 Katong, this is one restaurant that has a unique history of its own. Charly is a well-travelled man, one…

MEDZ’s All-New Asian Kitchen @ Millenia Walk

MEDZ has always been known for its unique Mediterranean selection (and popular rainbow cakes). However, I was surprised to find out that they recently launched an Asian Kitchen section – of course, largely to cater to our older folks who prefer their traditional white rice and soup for dinner. If you haven’t been to MEDZ, let…
