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…

Chef’s Table @ Tras Street

Have you ever thought of how a Western Omakase would be like? I just might have that perfect answer for you. At the newly opened Chef’s Table by Chef Stephan, you will be treated to a Chef’s Table experience; from a bespoke menu prepared with the freshest, seasonal produce, to table service by the master…

Cooking with Gourmet Greens @ ToTT

Two weeks ago, I attended a culinary class hosted by FIJI Water featuring two vegetable-centric dishes! You may be wondering, what’s FIJI Water got to do with cooking? Well, do you know that FIJI Water is the preferred water of choice for top chefs, restaurants and hotels around the world? Yes, it is incorporated within…

Blue Bali @ Cluny Road

Want a quick escape from the concrete jungle that we live in? Here’s one place that I’m very proud to introduce you to, where you can truly be transported to the island of Bali and let your hair down. Nestled at the NUS Law Campus at Bukit Timah is Blue Bali,  where the front of…

Salted & Hung @ Purvis Street

New restaurant alert! I always get excited when the Unlisted Collection launches a new concept, because I know that whether it’s ambience or food, it will be top-notch. And I certainly was not disappointed. Opened on 12 June, what used to be 5th Quarter at Hotel Vagabond has been relaunched to become Salted & Hung at their new…

Burnt Ends [Asia’s No. 30] @ Teck Lim Road

In merely 3 years, Burnt Ends had soared to the top and most recently been named Asia’s Top 50 Restaurant, coming in at No. 30. The brainchild of Dave Pynt, the open kitchen is dominated by huge open ovens and grills, filled with apple and almond woods. True to its name, all the food here hits the…

999.99 Five Nines @ Keong Saik Road

One point for you if you related 999.99 to the standards of a fine gold bullion. Located at 29 Keong Saik, 999.99 is in fact the latest modern European restaurant along this bustling stretch. Over here, you can expect your food being served in its purest and finest form in quality, service, presentation, and most importantly…

Coriander Leaf @ Chjimes

Through the continuous change of the F&B landscape, Coriander Leaf has withstood time, since 2001 when it was established. It came a long way from its first outlet at Gallery Hotel, and now a newly-opened modern space at Chjimes. Taking over the old space where Sun with Moon used to be at, this new restaurant…

Umi + Vino @ Emporium Shokushin, Marina Square

Emporium Shokuhin at Marina Square opened with much fanfare as it is the largest Japanese supermarket in Singapore yet, with live seafood and premium meat cuts available for purchase. There are 7 Japanese dining concepts under its wing, specialising in namely sushi, ramen & gyoza, shabu-shabu, cold seafood and a fine-dining restaurant. I’ve tried 3…

[New Menu] Halia @ Singapore Botanic Gardens

Fun fact: Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens was established in 2001 – that’s a whopping 14 years! Before this tasting, I was oblivious to the rich history Halia possesses, which includes the numerous awards and accolades garnered for its excellence in food, service and unique dining ambience. I have been to its second outlet at…

[Dinner] BRIDGE Restaurant & Bar @ Seah Street

It definitely wasn’t love at first sight at BRIDGE. I was here for a food-tasting session for the launch of their dinner set menu and by the end of the night, I was sold. Completely sold. Lawrence (pictured with his wife above), banker-turned-restauranteur, took time to sit down with us for the entire dinner session and…

MAY MAY @ Tras Street

Many would have heard of the delicious rice bowls MAY MAY serves for lunch, but do you know their dinner is pretty epic too? When you enter the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by the heavenly combination of marble and wood. There’s a light well in the middle of the restaurant and even an air-plant wall…

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.e.i.o.u Café @ King George’s Avenue

When I first saw the café name, I foolishly tried pronouncing it, without realising that it was a sequence of vowels – A.E.I.O.U. At a.e.i.o.u, they go back to basics, where a space is re-created to connect its customers to the nature and to bring back childhood memories with many vintage collectables. Their menu consists…

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…

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…

Paddy Hills Café @ South Buona Vista Road

I’m pretty sure Paddy Hills’ address will ring a bell to many Singaporeans as this is where the long-running and famous South Buona Vista Duck Rice used to stand. A 360 degree overhaul was given to this space, bringing a whole new lease of life to it. Apart from its drop-dead gorgeous interior design (which you’ll see later), Paddy…

East 8 New York Fusion Tapas + Bar @ Grand Park City Hotel

More and more, we see the concepts of tapas and fusion food colliding and East 8 is the epitome of it. When you step into the restaurant, you’ll hear a playlist of Korean songs and gorgeous covers of chart-toppers (the playlist was so awesome that we had to enquire about it after dinner)! It’s interesting that…

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…

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.
