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…

Charly T’s @ 112 Katong Mall

Charly T’s – a name that I would associate an American restaurant chain with. But no, Charly T’s is in fact a home-grown brand by Charly himself, no less. Nestled in the third level of 112 Katong, this is one restaurant that has a unique history of its own. Charly is a well-travelled man, one…

Akanoya Robotayaki Restaurant @ Orchard Parade Hotel

A world apart from its sister restaurant, Akashi Sushi, Akanoya Robotayaki serves authentic and unique Robotayaki cuisine, where for a few hours, diners are transported to Japan. Reservations in advance is a must here as the restaurant is bustling full every night! As it gets later into the night, the whole atmosphere transforms and the…

Nara Thai Restaurant @ Ion Orchard

Nara Thai was voted as Thailand’s Best Restaurant 2013 in Thailand and before its grand opening in Singapore, there was already lots of hype on FaceBook! Talk about the power of social media. As a foodie-on-the-hunt, I went down to the restaurant, eager to find out whether the Singapore franchise lives up to the reputation of…

Shabu Sai @ Orchard Central

Jumping on the bandwagon of steamboat and Japanese buffet restaurants is Shabu Sai – a Japanese steamboat buffet restaurant (pardon the repetition of words). With a total of 7 soup bases, the diversity is great as long as it doesn’t leave you and your friends bickering over which to choose. Thank goodness, you’re entitled to…

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…

Pasta Vista @ East Coast Road

Sometimes Groupon deals can be very useful in uncovering gems that you may otherwise not patronise. This time round, I’ve found a new favourite pasta shop near my house! Within a week, I’ve returned for dinner a second time (yes, it was that good). In fact, I’m planning my next visit already! Pasta Vista is a contemporary Italian…

Akashi Sushi @ Vivocity

Akashi Sushi currently has 3 branches – Tanglin, Paragon and the latest addition at Vivocity. Queues can get pretty long during dinner time, so I would recommend going early, or make a reservation beforehand! iPads used as menus (only at Vivo)! I feel that although the younger generations will use this technology with ease, older…

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…
