The Ottomani @ Peck Seah Street

I wanted something special for my birthday dinner and chanced upon the newly branded The Ottomani (yes, I choose where to go for my birthday)! I have to say it was a great choice. The Ottomani is branded as a Middle Eastern restaurant but don’t brush it off as too exotic for you as Chef…

Teppei Japanese Restaurant @ Orchid Hotel

All the wonderful food above for only $88 – wagyu, toro and uni included! No wonder reservation at Teppei is still a must after 5 strong years of operation. With 2 seatings available at 6.30pm or 8.30pm, a batch of diners go in together and everyone will start their meal at the same time! That’s…

Nesuto @ Tras Street

The Japanese-inspired cake selection here is pretty awesome, ranging from small exquisite cakes with many components within, to sliced cakes. They do not come cheap, but if you appreciate cakes, I know you’ll enjoy this. The cafe recommends tea-pairing with their cakes – a great combination for a nice afternoon tea! Miss Isphan ($10) – This…

Candlenut Peranakan @ COMO Dempsey

The only Peranakan restaurant in the world that has achieved 1 Michelin Star is right here on our shores.

In comparison, I would say that food now has become more delicious and…
