Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ Serangoon Gardens

Nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Serangoon Gardens, Hajime is slowly garnering its own base of loyal customers since it opened its doors 6 months ago. Far from a run-of-the-mill neighbourhood Japanese bistro, Hajime is helmed by Chef Tan-San, the first Tonkatsu chef in Singapore! You may not know, but Chef Tan was hand-picked 25 years…

Whitegrass @ CHIJMES

Helmed by Chef-owner Sam Aisbett, Whitegrass is his first restaurant venture showcasing his take on modern Australian fine-dining cuisine. Nestled in the front quarters of CHIJMES, Whitegrass has an al-fresco bar and a beautiful indoor dining space, segregated into different spaces – including an elegant dining room fit for hosting private events. For lunch, they…

District 10’s ‘Lunch Steak-Out’ @ Suntec City

Did you know that all District 10 outlets have different specialities? This one that I’m going to introduce you to at Suntec City, specialises in Fiorentina steaks! Yes, it prides itself as a steakhouse with the best-priced bistecca alla fiorentina, or Fiorentina steaks, in town. The last time I had a Fiorentina steak was probably 5 years ago,…

In the first of this series, I’ll be introducing the ever popular Aura Italian Restaurant. I tried reserving a…

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…

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…

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…
