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…

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…

Celeste Restaurant @ Dancing House, Prague, Czech Republic

Dancing House is one of the must-see architectures in Prague and there’a fine-dining restaurant at the top of the building called Celeste! Of course, Foodiepink had to report on this. 😛 As you can see, the Dancing House did not conform to the norm of Baroque or Gothic styles that were typical of European buildings. Thus,…

A year on, they have refurbished the restaurant, featuring an added private dining area and a brand new bar, together with a new menu unveiled by 27-year-old Executive Chef Mathew Leighton. Chef Mathew is also…

Le Bistrot De Sommelier @ Armenian Street

This French restaurant’s chef de cuisine, Brandon Foo, has been awarded the Meat & Livestock Australia Rising Chef Of The Year at World Gourmet Series Awards of Excellence. The restaurant was quiet when we…

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 &…

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…
