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…

PS. Café @ One Fullerton

If you haven’t yet heard, PS. Café has added a new outlet at One Fullerton recently! PS. Café has been around since 1999 – really amazing how it’s still so popular and hip after being around for almost two decades. At this new outpost, the decor has been kept consistent with its signature anglo-Chinese monochrome look. Feels…

Plentyfull @ Millenia Walk

A place of restoration, Plentyfull serves up honest, hearty food in a market table luncheon spread by day, and by night, it transforms into a modern brasserie that presents an ala carte menu inspired by seasonal, fresh and quality produce. I’ve visited Plentyfull three times – the first was to have tea, second was to have…

Jamie’s Italian Gourmet Pop-Up Market @ Vivocity

Earlier on in the month, Jamie’s Italian organised a pop-up market at its Vivocity outlet, where its fresh ingredients made in-house were on sale! This includes its pasta, pasta sauces, merchandise and much more. Apart from sampling some of their signature dishes, I got to bring home some food too. Read till the end to…

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…

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…

Noshery by Nosh @ 9 Rochester Park

If you’re looking for a spot to bring your new date to, or just looking to make your brunch dates more interesting, seek no further. I’m certain that Noshery will blow anyone away with its beautiful and quaint interior. Upon stepping into the café, I felt as though I was transported to another country, of another…

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…

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,…

Adrift by David Myers @ Marina Bay Sands

Helmed by Celebrity Chef David Meyers, Adrift’s interior was spectacular – divided by rooms, each room is filled with a visual feast. From having swings as your dining chair, overlooking the pond, to a mini library (pictured above), you are being transported out of Singapore for a moment. I was here for a beautiful weekend…

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…

PUNCH Café @ North Canal Road

Punch is the epitome of a hipster cafe. Not the hipster wanna-be. But the hipster, hipster. Most importantly, the food is wicked. Located within a shophouse, it made use of the alfresco space and turned it into a mini outdoor lounge area, complete with lush greeneries on the wall. Inside the café, is a beautiful…

999.99 Five Nines @ Keong Saik Road

Over here, you can expect your food being served in its purest and finest form in quality, service, presentation, and most importantly…

Hotel Review: Village Hotel Katong @ Marine Parade

A home away from home, quite literally, as my house is a few minutes’ walk to Village Hotel Katong! What used to be Paramount Hotel and a very popular Tunglok branch in the basement, the building is now converted into a boutique hotel by Far East Hospitality that retains the Peranakan roots of this district…

Buffet: Colony @ The Ritz-Carlton Singapore

One of the best new openings for 2015 is definitely Colony, Ritz-Carlton’s new buffet restaurant which replaced Greenhouse. The entire concept is so refreshing following its renovation – a huge step away from the original buffet powerhouse, bringing its game a notch up.  The theme surrounding the restaurant depicts the sea voyage of the British…

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.

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…
