PS. Café @ One Fullerton

If you haven’t yet heard, PS. Café has added a new outlet at One Fullerton recently! PS. Café has been around since 1999 – really amazing how it’s still so popular and hip after being around for almost two decades. At this new outpost, the decor has been kept consistent with its signature anglo-Chinese monochrome look. Feels…

Plentyfull @ Millenia Walk

A place of restoration, Plentyfull serves up honest, hearty food in a market table luncheon spread by day, and by night, it transforms into a modern brasserie that presents an ala carte menu inspired by seasonal, fresh and quality produce. I’ve visited Plentyfull three times – the first was to have tea, second was to have…

Jamie’s Italian Gourmet Pop-Up Market @ Vivocity

Earlier on in the month, Jamie’s Italian organised a pop-up market at its Vivocity outlet, where its fresh ingredients made in-house were on sale! This includes its pasta, pasta sauces, merchandise and much more. Apart from sampling some of their signature dishes, I got to bring home some food too. Read till the end to…

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ Serangoon Gardens

Nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Serangoon Gardens, Hajime is slowly garnering its own base of loyal customers since it opened its doors 6 months ago. Far from a run-of-the-mill neighbourhood Japanese bistro, Hajime is helmed by Chef Tan-San, the first Tonkatsu chef in Singapore! You may not know, but Chef Tan was hand-picked 25 years…

Noshery by Nosh @ 9 Rochester Park

If you’re looking for a spot to bring your new date to, or just looking to make your brunch dates more interesting, seek no further. I’m certain that Noshery will blow anyone away with its beautiful and quaint interior. Upon stepping into the café, I felt as though I was transported to another country, of another…

District 10’s ‘Lunch Steak-Out’ @ Suntec City

Did you know that all District 10 outlets have different specialities? This one that I’m going to introduce you to at Suntec City, specialises in Fiorentina steaks! Yes, it prides itself as a steakhouse with the best-priced bistecca alla fiorentina, or Fiorentina steaks, in town. The last time I had a Fiorentina steak was probably 5 years ago,…

Your Ultimate Guide to Singapore Coffee Festival 2016 @ F1 Pit Building

Coffee-lovers unite! Are you guys loving the up and coming, vibrant café scene in Singapore? Well, this one is for you. Come 9-12 June, the inaugural Singapore Coffee Festival 2016 will be held at the F1 Pit Building. Do not confuse this year’s Festival with last year’s Café Fest though (because I was). Organised by…

Adrift by David Myers @ Marina Bay Sands

Helmed by Celebrity Chef David Meyers, Adrift’s interior was spectacular – divided by rooms, each room is filled with a visual feast. From having swings as your dining chair, overlooking the pond, to a mini library (pictured above), you are being transported out of Singapore for a moment. I was here for a beautiful weekend…

PUNCH Café @ North Canal Road

Punch is the epitome of a hipster cafe. Not the hipster wanna-be. But the hipster, hipster. Most importantly, the food is wicked. Located within a shophouse, it made use of the alfresco space and turned it into a mini outdoor lounge area, complete with lush greeneries on the wall. Inside the café, is a beautiful…

Buffet: Colony @ The Ritz-Carlton Singapore

One of the best new openings for 2015 is definitely Colony, Ritz-Carlton’s new buffet restaurant which replaced Greenhouse. The entire concept is so refreshing following its renovation – a huge step away from the original buffet powerhouse, bringing its game a notch up.  The theme surrounding the restaurant depicts the sea voyage of the British…

Aura Italian Restaurant @ National Gallery Singapore

With the opening of National Gallery, the F&B scene in Singapore has become more vibrant than ever – with exciting establishments serving up quality food that is on par with that of a five-star hotel, with an edge. In the first of this series, I’ll be introducing the ever popular Aura Italian Restaurant. I tried reserving a…

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…

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…

Karafuru Dessert @ Jalan Klapa

I’ve been eyeing this place ever since the photos of their pretty desserts surfaced on Instagram. You know, with such highly Instagram-worthy plated desserts (and Nipon-themed too), Singaporeans literally go ga-ga. Coupled with positive reviews, I was very much looking forward to our first meet. Karafuru had a very inviting interior (sorry no shots, as my…

[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…

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…

The Waterfall @ Shangri-La Hotel

Not too long ago, Shangri-La Hotel introduced a new restaurant, The Waterfall, specialising in Southern Italian cuisine. Yes, one more restaurant to find lip-smacking good pastas! On weekends, The Waterfall offers Italian brunches at $48 per head. Not too bad for free-flow pastas, pizzas and caprese I think! However, as I wasn’t in the mood for buffet, I opted…

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…

Luxe @ Keong Saik Road

Luxe is the latest Australian addition to Singapore’s café culture! Hailing from Sydney, Luxe started out as a bakery in 2008 and branched out into various concept café-restaurant in Sydney. Riding on the up and coming wave of our local café culture, Luxe debuted in Singapore merely a month ago, as a café-restaurant-bar, in a…
