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…

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…

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…

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…

Laneway Market Café @ Tanjong Katong Road

Joining the slew of cafés in the East is Laneway Market (inserts hooray)! In between Carry On Café and Do.Main Bakery, this hipster-sounding café is in fact a warm and cosy café. To me, the decor is extremely homely and unpretentious, with pretty light sources and comfortable seats. Most importantly, it boasts high amount of…

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…

Breakfast: MEDZ Bistro @ Clifford Centre

Literally a stone’s throw from Raffles Place MRT (and from where I work at), I’m glad to find out that MEDZ has launched their breakfast menu to cater to the busy people like us! What’s more, you’ll get a free cup of coffee to go along with your breakfast, to fuel on for the day. From…

Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters @ Upper Thomson Road

Pacamara first caught my attention with its one-of-a-kind name, as it sounded like a spell name that would have been used in Hogwarts (am I stretching it?). However, I soon understand that Pacamara is a type of coffee bean from Bangkok that is being used here. And suddenly, that created clarity for me. The café stood out from…

Christmas Menu: Zaffron Kitchen @ East Coast Road

Let me formally introduce you to this charming chef – Chef Satish Madaan. At just 35 years-old, Chef Satish has many accolades under his belt, including 3 golds form the region’s most prestigious international culinary competition, FHA Culinary Challenge. Chef Satish has even cooked for our Former President Mr. SR Nathan! Chef Satish now trains…

Farm to Table Café @ The Duxton Hotel

It was a sweltering-hot Sunday afternoon when my friends and I were walking along Duxton, without anywhere to go since Department of Caffeine was full. As we passed the Duxton Hotel and in between guessing if this was a restaurant or café, we headed in for some shelter. The café-restaurant was surprisingly spacious and had a cheery…

Tiferet Tea Room @ Katong V

You know you’ve hit jackpot when you find one good café after another – sans the weekend crowd (referring to Carry On Café here). After spending 5 days a week at Raffles Place, I definitely need a cosy space (that is not my house) where I can talk about life with friends and not be pressured by the…

Carry On Café & Shop @ Tanjong Katong Road

Can’t find a table at the café during brunch hours and your precious weekend is ruined by the waiting list? Well, I’m pretty sure most of us understand this frustration, especially when people just wouldn’t quit talking and adjourn elsewhere. Here’s the answer to your misery! Carry On Café has been out of the radar for…

Coast & Company @ Siglap Drive

It’s heartening to see more and more cafés popping up in the East area, where I stay at. Coast & Cycles is definitely one of the most prominent addition to the Siglap area, with the well-known Papa Palheta as its core stakeholder. Beside its functionality as a coffeehouse, Coast & Cycles is a modern bicycle…

Wang Daebak Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Amoy Street

When my ex-boss said that she had found the best Korean BBQ place in Singapore – Wang Daebak, I knew I had to try. By coincidence (or not), Daebak also means awesome in Korean. I suppose there’s some truth in that! I visited the outlet at Amoy (the other one at China Square Central) and…

Danji Café @ Seoul, Korea

This café wasn’t on our to-go list but because we were wandering about the area for the longest time ever, nit-picking at every restaurant/café we walked by, that we got so tired we eventually settled on this cosy, family-run café. The restaurant space was really small – barely accommodating 15 people, so my best friend and I had…

The Hwawon @ Eight Seconds, Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

The beautiful facade, Holland-inspired, was the reason a second look was given. Its monotone design made the building stand out amidst the monotonous concrete two-storey buildings lined along the famous café street Garosu-gil. Even its name, Eight Seconds, instantly sounded magical (instead of ridiculous). Nestled behind huge potted plants is a café aptly named The…

Mister Bossam Cafe @ Sinchon, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Near Ewha Womans University, there are many eateries and cafes that are extremely friendly to the wallet – think student-meal prices! I love Sinchon as it has my favourite waffles place (post next week) as well countless budget-friendly boutiques. We headed straight here on the first day and as it was around 10+am, many shops…

Swee Choon Dimsum Restaurant @ Jalan Besar

Swee Choon is a dimsum restaurant dated back to more than 50 years ago, yet I’ve only heard of it recently! Now, I wonder if I’ve been living under a rock. This name shot to fame thanks to claims of their uber-delicious lava custard buns, as well as their exceptionally low prices. Opened from 6pm…

Supreme Tastes Jiang Nan Cuisine @ Marina Square

One of the new additions to Marina Square’s Dining Edition is a Chinese restaurant specialising in Jiang Nan cuisine called Supreme Tastes. Its jarring Chinese decor makes sure that you won’t ever miss it. After one look at its menu, I found most of the dishes similar to the ones at Imperial Kitchen La Mian…
