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,…

Bochinche Argentinian Restaurant @ Martin Place

HOLA! I’m back from Spain and what better way to end my blogging hiatus than with a new post on Argentinian cuisine! Close enough to those unforgettable tapas I had just a few days. By Chef Diego Jacquet and Spa Esprit group, Bochinche sits just above Common Man Coffee Roasters (which happens to be by Spa…

CottoCrudo @ Four Seasons Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic

From the outside, Four Seasons Hotel in Prague, is a humble, low-rise building of colonial style. CottoCrudo is one of the best restaurants in Prague (according to my research prior to my trip), so of course Foodiepink has to give it a try! The restaurant was huge! There were bar seatings separated form another wide…

SONS Bacaro @ China Square Central

During lunchtime, SONS Bacaro is crazily-crowded, thanks to their irresistible set lunch menus. While I never seem to have any luck in getting a table during lunch, I was here for dinner instead. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant in the evening – dim lightings and an air-well that lets the soft light reflect against the monochrome-checkered…

Anti:Dote High Tea @ Fairmont Hotel

I was killing time on a Sunday afternoon with a friend when we walked into Anti:Dote – a place known to have your after-work drinks at. Surprisingly, the restaurant started to get crowded by 3pm. Later, I saw boxes of pretty snacks being prepared and served to other tables. I knew I had to return. Anti:Dote’s exquisite…

Le Bistrot De Sommelier @ Armenian Street

Dad and I found out about Le Bistrot du Sommelier from the papers when we were looking for an angmoh restaurant to go to. 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…

Les Amis Restaurant @ Shaw Centre

Les Amis turns 20 this year! Before you even step into the restaurant, you should take a good look at the huge Forbes Travel Guide award right at the entrance – an accolade that is high in prestige and a testimony to the quality of the restaurant. If you haven’t heard, Les Amis Restaurant is one…

Museo @ Quayside Isle, Sentosa Cove

The people behind Artisteaque really do have a knack for interior decor. Another concept restaurant named Museo, it offers art jamming sessions as well, and aptly located at the picturesque Quayside Isle. The ambience gives off a cool, modern, yet romantic vibe, a vast contrast to its girly, floral counterpart at Mandarin Gallery. I was here…

Lolla @ Ann Siang Road

A quaint Mediterranean restaurant, Lolla struck me as a post-modern cuisine, aptly housed in a gentrified shophouse. Whilst the original facade remains, its a whole new world altogether inside. The menu is inspired by small plates, with less than 30 dishes in all, including desserts. The idea is for your to share and enjoy the…

Miam Miam French.Japanese Cafe.Kitchen @ Bugis Junction

A few weeks back, I headed to Bugis Junction to check out its newly revamped wing and Miam Miam, which also means “Yum Yum” in French, got onto my personal ‘To Try’ list. A few days later, an invitation for a food-tasting event here found its way into my mailbox. True story there. At first…

Oushin Japanese Steakhouse @ Suntec City Mall

I love the concept of Japanese steakhouse – just like how I love my Japanese pasta – and I made it a point to come down to try this latest hunt in Suntec City! Sandwiched in between Akashi Sushi and Starbucks, Oushin looked tiny from outside. However, the narrow space at the front of the…

The Black Swan @ Cecil Street

If there is one restaurant that you must not miss out on this year, it would be The Black Swan. Established by the Lo & Behold Group behind White Rabbit (don’t they just love animals?), The Black Swan is located right in the heart of CBD. The restaurant-bar oozes a chic-swanky vibe, with a touch…

Jaan @ Swissôtel

Jaan is the epitome of fine-dining and has been accredited to be ‘The One To Watch’ title and holds the ranking of No. 22 in the inaugural Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. That, is quite some achievement I would say. For the uninitiated, Jaan is a modern French restaurant by Chef de Cuisine Julien Royer, who highlights and…

Shelter in the Woods @ Greenwood Avenue

Don’t you just want to head down to a safe haven, away from your daily lives’ hassles? Well, Shelter in the Woods provide just that, literally, at Greenwood Avenue! You will not find run-of-the-mill dishes here, and pay attention rum lovers, they have many unique flavours that are all home-brewed, as well as an extensive…

Kupetzeliseevs Restaurant (Part 1) @ St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

Amazing, gorgeous, magnificent – this is an understatement to what I was seeing upon entering the beautiful facade. It reminded me of London’s Harrods, but more opulent. Rows of desserts and macarons lined the long counter facing the entrance and walking further in, there were dedicated counters to meats, caviars and more sweets! It was…

Palkin Restaurant @ St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

Palkin is one of the oldest restaurant establishments in St. Petersburg which has retained its original name and location since 1874, along the bustling road called Nevsky Prospect. It was at Palkin where chefs started including elements of French cuisine into their traditional Russian style of cooking. It had seen regular clientele from the elites…
