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…

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…

Aura Italian Restaurant @ National Gallery Singapore

With the opening of National Gallery, the F&B scene in Singapore has become more vibrant than ever – with exciting establishments serving up quality food that is on par with that of a five-star hotel, with an edge. In the first of this series, I’ll be introducing the ever popular Aura Italian Restaurant. I tried reserving a…

Gourmet Greens Week Restaurant Trail 2015

Many of you would have heard of Restaurant Week, but have you heard of Gourmet Greens Week? From 23 to 29 November, you can experience ‘green fine-dining’ as Gourmet Greens Week brings to you the natural, pristine beauty of vegetables on a plate, presented by FIJI Water and Chope. You’ll be able to find Singapore’s hottest restaurants…

[New Outlet] Jamie’s Italian @ Forum Shopping Centre

Fans of Jamie’s home cooked Italian cuisine at Vivo City may rejoice as the second outlet at The Forum is now ready for business and they are dishing out popular favourites with a twist! Stepping into the restaurant, we were greeted by the friendly staff and swiftly ushered to our seats. The ambience was captivating…

The Waterfall @ Shangri-La Hotel

Not too long ago, Shangri-La Hotel introduced a new restaurant, The Waterfall, specialising in Southern Italian cuisine. Yes, one more restaurant to find lip-smacking good pastas! On weekends, The Waterfall offers Italian brunches at $48 per head. Not too bad for free-flow pastas, pizzas and caprese I think! However, as I wasn’t in the mood for buffet, I opted…

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…

Southbridge Rooftop Bar @ Boat Quay

The latest rooftop bar to join Boat Quay is Southbridge with the most amazing panoramic view of the CBD skyline yet. Over here, they serve large and juicy oysters at a very competitive prices. Happy Hours happens before 8pm on weekdays where 6 oysters go for only $20! 😉 Perfect for some post-work chill pill. Bar…

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…

SandBank @ Parkland Green, East Coast Park

Good news for the Easties, a whole stretch of new F&B outlets (with ample parking space for free) has opened at East Coast Park, where the golf driving range used to stand, and aptly named Park Greenland! It’s like a mini Quayside Isle in the East. You can find bars and restaurants in XXL sizes…

Luka Lu Restaurant @ Prague, Czech Republic

My first meal in Prague was extremely colourful and fun! While doing my research online, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful interiors of the restaurant. See below! Isn’t this simply stunning? This space is the backyard of the restaurant, with a light-well above and a mezzanine floor accessed by the blue wooden stairs. The…

Table At 7 by Karl & Eugenia @ Mohammed Sultan Road

Sandwiched between The Patissier and Chikuwa Tei, Table at 7 does not stand out from its shopfront as compared to its more-famous neighbours. I’ve heard about this restaurant from my sister, who was raving about their Indonesian dishes. Unlike fusion restaurants, Table at 7 utilises a two-prong approach. The husband (Karl) and wife (Eugenia) behind this restaurant…

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…

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill @ One Fullerton

Occupying the corner unit of One Fullerton, The Pelican’s al-fresco bar provides respite for the working crowd even before the sun sets. Famous for the fresh seafood, the entire restaurant has subtle elements of the marine life. They have both ala-carte and bar food menus for those looking at finger food. Also, that’s a real sleek…

Bedrock Bar & Grill @ Pan Pacific Suites

Bedrock Bar & Grill is well-acclaimed for its delicious steaks and honestly, I’ve been pretty daunted by the prices! However, after this experience, I’m set to head back for more meat. From the front of the house, the restaurant looks tiny. The walkway leading to the back was narrow and dim, leading to a larger space…

il Cielo @ Hilton Hotel, Singapore

I haven’t gone back to Hilton Hotel for the longest time ever, constantly gearing towards new hotspots and neglecting the old. That is, until il Cielo caught my attention with its beautiful pool view from Level 24 of Hilton Hotel. Though the decor is rather dated, the ambience was cosy and romantic. A perfect setting…

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 &…

MEDZ’s All-New Asian Kitchen @ Millenia Walk

MEDZ has always been known for its unique Mediterranean selection (and popular rainbow cakes). However, I was surprised to find out that they recently launched an Asian Kitchen section – of course, largely to cater to our older folks who prefer their traditional white rice and soup for dinner. If you haven’t been to MEDZ, let…

Arossa Grill @ Scotts Square

When I was still working at Orchard, I made a point to note down valuable set lunches at places which would otherwise cost a few hundreds for dinners. Arossa Grill was one of them. Specialising in grills (obviously), all the grills are imported fresh from Australia. Similar to Salt Grill, the proteins are cooked simply, with few…

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…
