Tonkatsu by Ma Maison @ Mandarin Gallery

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison may not be new, but I’ve finally found enough determination to resist the pull I get from Ippudo Ramen whenever I’m at Mandarin Gallery. If you don’t already know, Ippudo Ramen is my go-to place for a bowl of comforting ramen, specifically Akamaru Tamago Ramen (Hard). Now, back to Tonkatsu. I…

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel Singapore

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant has been around for as long as I could remember. I was too excited to start attacking the food that I’ve missed out on taking photos of the environment. Located within Hotel Intercontinental, there is a light-well in the middle of the restaurant, with some influence of colonial times in its interior-architectural…

Octapas Spanish Tapas Bar @ Clarke Quay

Even though I haven’t been to Spain, my impression of the country is one that is full of vibrancy, energy and lots of Sangrias. I felt that Octapas had adequately captured this vibe with its brick-walls, bold graphics, orange lightings, and even down to the flowers on the ears of female staff. Like all typical Spanish…

Mad for Garlic @ Clarke Quay

If there ever was a Dracula apocalypse, this is the place to seek cover at! Strings and strings of garlics are hung across ceilings and ledges, they keep garlic-haters at bay too, I’m sure. Originated in Korea, Mad for Garlic serves innovative garlic-specialised Italian cuisine, promised to change your biased views about this healthy albeit…

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….

Japanese Dining SUN @ Chjimes

SUN is a Japanese restaurant that never fails. Under the same group is Sun with Moon at Wheelock Place, but I’m more fond of this one in Chjimes. In a blink of an eye, this outlet is already celebrating its 8th anniversary and as a gesture of goodwill, diners are rewarded with dining vouchers for their…

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…

Omakase Burger @ The Grandstand

The highly-raved Omakase Burger! I love anything Omakase haha! There’s a selection of burgers that you can choose from – mainly add-ons (eg. bacon, mushrooms) to your cheeseburger. Also, you can choose from Sweet Potato Fries, Truffle Fries etc. This is only half of the restaurant with more tables behind! Homemade Lemonade: A very refreshing…

Boathouse Restaurant @ The Fullerton Waterboat House

If you wish to impress someone, this is definitely the place to go to! Boathouse Restaurant on the third floor serves Business Set Lunches at $38 on Weekdays (however, certain dishes require a supplement of $2-5). All the dishes served were impeccably plated and the food tasted as good as they looked.  The interior decor…
