Anthesis Bakery & Café @ Robertson Quay

One thing about the River Valley/Robertson Quay area is its extensive choice of cafés for the brunch-goers. The other thing about it is the endless streams of brunch-getters – that is, unless you check in at 8am (correct me if I’m wrong). Anthesis is a rather new addition, located just a door away from the renowned café,…

Flock Café @ Moh Guan Terrace, Tiong Bahru

Tiong Bahru may have lost its novelty of being our go-to brunch place (since we’ve done so too many times), I’m glad that every now and then, when I explore another side of the road, I find a new gem. Though Flock Café isn’t exactly the latest addition to the town by the time I’m…

Mezza9 @ Grand Hyatt Hotel

Mezza9 has been around for the longest time I can remember. According to my mum, back in its hey-days, Mezza9 was one of the few fine-dining restaurants in Singapore and had seen many rich and famous. A multi-concept restaurant, it offers numerous cuisines under one roof, including Japanese, Italian and Chinese! The space is divided…

Earl Grey Cranberry Bread Class @ Maple & Market

For a light Sunday read, I’ve decided to review a baking class. Two months back when I first visited Maple & Market, I promised to attend a class conducted by Sarah herself and I just did so a few Sundays ago! I attended the October Bread Class and Earl Grey Cranberry Bread was my pick…

L’Europe Restaurant @ Grand Hotel Europe, St. Petersburg [Russia Trip]

Dining at L’Europe Restaurant allows you to experience history that dates back to 1896, when it first opened. Situated in 6-Star Hotel, Grand Hotel Europe, this restaurant has retained its original interiors since 1905 when it first reopened as the very first restaurant that boasts electric light in Russia. Seated at the very same table…

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…

Prego @ Fairmount Hotel

Prego has been around for almost two decades or more and its decor has not changed since I was here as a kid. It used to be a popular Italian restaurant back in those days when choices were limited. I was surprised that it was nearly full house on a Wednesday night when I visited….

Buffet: Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel

Pan Pacific Hotel has been given a new facelift this year. The pavillion structures at the lobby with surrounding water bodies creates a contemporary and funky vibe. I am very excited to share with you the hotel’s buffet restaurant called Edge, which has a very apt tagline: Food Theatre. Edge takes up a massive floorspace on Level…

Buffet: Lime @ Park Royal, Pickering

This blogpost is wayy overdue as I’ve visited Lime 2 months ago when they were still having a UOB card promotion whereby the 3rd diner dines free with every 2 paying adults. I did a quick check on the UOB privileges site and it’s no longer listed. 😦 So, the usual price for buffet dinner…

LP + Tetsu by Laurent Peugeot @ Tanglin Mall

LP+Tetsu is the brainchild of one-Michelin-Star Chef Laurent Peugeot and the local Food Junction Holdings Limited. The restaurant serves a modern fusion of French-Japanese cuisine with exquisite platings and innovative food preparation. LP+Tetsu has an open-kitchen concept just at the front of the restaurant, where they perform their magic. There is a private dining room…

LaBrezza @ The St. Regis Hotel

LaBrezza is a Trattoria-style Italian restaurant at The St. Regis Singapore. Located on the second floor overlooking the pool, LaBrezza has an open al-fresco dining concept, with some air-con blasting in the main dining area. As compared to St. Regis’ French Restaurant, Brasserie Les Saveurs, LaBrezza is definitely more laid-back and family-oriented. This would be perfect…

Restaurant Week: Gaia @ Goodwood Park Hotel

I had chosen to dine at Gaia during Restaurant Week after reading all the good reviews about it! Restaurant Week set lunch menu was priced at $40++ per person, consisting of an appetizer, main course and dessert! Gaia is a very spacious restaurant and bar, divided into different spaces, with a choice of outdoor seating…

Restaurant Week: Laurent Bernard Chocolatier @ Portsdown

The Portsdown area feels like a mini Dempsey whereby restaurants are found in single-storey houses. A really rustic and peaceful place by night! I was here for Restaurant Week, where they served dinner set menu at $35 per person, consisting of an appetiser, main and dessert. The indoor area of the restaurant is rather small,…
