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…

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…

Staycation: Hotel Jen @ Tanglin

There’s something different about #thejenfeeling. It is hipster, forward yet homely at the same time. Every turn and corner contains a surprise. Because photos will speak for themselves, here they are. Lobby lounge and a cafe at the back. Instagram-worthy stationary swings! #Bedroomgoals Cosy corner of the room with quotes of the day! Even a…

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…

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…

[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…

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…

Hotel Review: Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok

Well, the Shangri-La brand needs no further introduction. Thus, this is just a quick photo view of the hotel’s vicinity and of course, breakfast buffet. My entire stay here at Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok was nothing short of perfection. It’s very near the Silom MTR station and you can take the sheltered link through Shangri-La Residences, which…

Buffet: Sala Rim Naam @ Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Bangkok

A boat ride? Yep, you’re treated to a short boat ride before your royal meal commences! As the Sala Rim Naam is situated across the river from the main hotel vicinity, don’t be surprised when the staff start directing you towards the port! The only Thai restaurant in Mandarin Oriental serves a royal spread of Thai…

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…

Buffet: Seasonal Taste @ The Westin Hotel

After my staycation at Westin and trying every restaurant possible in this hotel (Dinner at Cook & Brew and High-Tea at Lobby Lounge), I was left with its buffet dinner to conquer. I loved how the restaurant overlooks the Marina Bay port from the 32nd floor. Tables by the window have the best view –…

High Tea: Rose Veranda @ Shangri-La Hotel

The posh waiting area of Rose Veranda is just a lead-up to what you will be in for when you dine here. The space has been revamped a number of times, but remained as popular as ever. I did not manage to get a photo of the main dining area, but just imagine a double-storey…

Staycation: The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore

This famous colonial structure was once home to the nation’s General Post Office, The Exchange, Chamber of Commerce and The Singapore Club. Converted into a luxury hotel that is uniquely Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel continues to draw crowds, both overseas and local, with its blend of the old and new. I was here over Christmas last…

Staycation: Carlton City Hotel, Singapore

A second property of the Carlton Brand in Singapore, Carlton City Hotel is a brand new business hotel situated along the fringes of Chinatown, within the historical district of Tanjong Pagar. To me, its location is extremely convenient, with the MRT Station 5-10 minutes away by foot and there are countless food options nearby. Adjacent…

Weekend High Tea: Equinox @ Swissôtel

Equinox is famous for its sky-high views from level 69 and I was here on a Saturday for their weekend high tea – buffet style. I can’t remember the last time I had a buffet for tea since all the chi-chi high tea sets come in a bird cage or at least, non-refillable. At $42++…

Hotel Review: Crowne Plaza Hotel, St. Petersburg

This marks the first of the upcoming sporadic hotel reviews that I will be blogging about. Where’s the food you may ask. Well, right down below, I’ll be sharing with you the hotel’s breakfast buffet! Isn’t hotel breakfast a highlight of your stay that could very well make or break your impression? Over here at…

Hotel & Breakfast Review: Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Moscow

If you love historic, Victorian-looking buildings, you’ll fall in love with the landscape of Russia. While many of these century-old buildings still have their facade preserved, within them are the modern designs in sync with today’s times. Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow is just a stone’s throw away from the Red Square – a UNESCO Heritage…

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel Singapore

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant has been around for as long as I could remember. I was too excited to start attacking the food that I’ve missed out on taking photos of the environment. Located within Hotel Intercontinental, there is a light-well in the middle of the restaurant, with some influence of colonial times in its interior-architectural…

Basilico Italian Restaurant @ Regent Hotel

Basilico Italian Restaurant is an award-winning, 5-star Italian restaurant at Regent Hotel. It offers a semi-buffet style for diners, whereby an area is dedicated to serving unlimited antipasti (appetizers) and desserts, while main courses are ordered the ala-carte way. While you get busy with the antipasti, the kitchen will prepare your main course, served upon request….

Buffet: Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel

Pan Pacific Hotel has been given a new facelift this year. The pavillion structures at the lobby with surrounding water bodies creates a contemporary and funky vibe. I am very excited to share with you the hotel’s buffet restaurant called Edge, which has a very apt tagline: Food Theatre. Edge takes up a massive floorspace on Level…
