[Sunday Brunch] Jim Thompson Thai Restaurant @ Dempsey

When it comes to Thai fine-dining restaurants in Singapore, there are only a few that I know of (do share with me if you know any). One of my constant favourites include Thanying at Amara Hotel and second, Jim Thompson. Tucked away from the noisy rows of restaurants at Dempsey Hill, Jim Thompson provides a serenity that…

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc @ Boon Tat Street

An extremely uncommon name for a restaurant, FYR (pronounced as fire) is definitely a character of its own. When you enter the back part of the restaurant bar, you’ll enter a time warp, to a time where human evoluation came about – vividly depicted by the full-wall murals. You can bet that the first word 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…

Brunch: Salt Grill & Sky Bar by Luke Mangan@ ION Orchard, Level 55

The last time I visited Salt Grill was exactly a year ago for dinner, where I celebrated my birthday with the boy. A year on, they have refurbished the restaurant, featuring an added private dining area and a brand new bar, together with a new menu unveiled by 27-year-old Executive Chef Mathew Leighton. Chef Mathew is also…

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 &…

Coast & Company @ Siglap Drive

It’s heartening to see more and more cafés popping up in the East area, where I stay at. Coast & Cycles is definitely one of the most prominent addition to the Siglap area, with the well-known Papa Palheta as its core stakeholder. Beside its functionality as a coffeehouse, Coast & Cycles is a modern bicycle…

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…

Café Oui @ Garosu-gil, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Seoul occupies a special place in my heart, having stayed there for an extended period (before this blog was started). I was very stoked when I planned for a trip back there last October. It is one capital that possesses a strong café culture, with streets and areas dedicated to cafés – not just any…

Brunch: House @ Dempsey

I reviewed about the Vintage Tea Party at House quite some time back when I first started Foodiepink. However, as House has been a perennial favourite among brunch goers, I’ve decided to head down to House once again for Sunday brunch after realising that I’ve been missing out on my taro, pumpkin and carrot fries all…

Artistry @ Kampong Glam

Sometimes it’s a blessing when things do not go according to plan. I found this gem – a quiet enclave, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons – after deciding not to queue at a popular brunch spot. We noticed many posters depicting modern and abstract illustrations of cities. These posters for sale, cost a few hundreds each. On the opposite end of the…

Ku Dé Ta @ Marina Bay Sands

Ku Dé Ta serves one of the most perfect Sunday Brunch consisting of a buffet spread for starters and desserts, as well as ala-carte buffet for mains. On top of that, there is a wide selection of teas, smoothies, milkshakes, soft drinks and coffees to choose from! All of these from the top of Marina…

Five & Dime @ River Valley

A cosy Australian-concept cafe started up by a dentist and his wife along the River Valley stretch. There’s free parking just behind the cafe, so brownie points! I was here on 2 separate occasions – once for brunch, and another for dinner. A typical Big Breakfast! Huge love for their scrambled eggs which was smooth…
