Gourmet Greens Week Restaurant Trail 2015

Many of you would have heard of Restaurant Week, but have you heard of Gourmet Greens Week? From 23 to 29 November, you can experience ‘green fine-dining’ as Gourmet Greens Week brings to you the natural, pristine beauty of vegetables on a plate, presented by FIJI Water and Chope. You’ll be able to find Singapore’s hottest restaurants…

Karafuru Dessert @ Jalan Klapa

I’ve been eyeing this place ever since the photos of their pretty desserts surfaced on Instagram. You know, with such highly Instagram-worthy plated desserts (and Nipon-themed too), Singaporeans literally go ga-ga. Coupled with positive reviews, I was very much looking forward to our first meet. Karafuru had a very inviting interior (sorry no shots, as my…

Sumiya Japanese Restaurant @ Suntec City [Lunch + Dinner Menu]

Sumiya opens at Suntec City after a very successful first outlet at Orchard Central! Following a revamp of Suntec City, it sits between Kushinbo and a 7-concept Japanese eatery, Eat at Seven. The branch here exudes a different ambience as compared to the one at Orchard Central, as it takes on a modern interpretation of retro Japan –…

Two Bakers @ Horne Road

I must admit I’m a pretty slow player in this game… the game of conquering the latest cafés in Singapore that is! So here I am at Two Bakers after hearing so much about it! They are famous for the pastries and desserts, but brunch is served here too. A simple and typical café interior,…

MEDZ’s All-New Asian Kitchen @ Millenia Walk

MEDZ has always been known for its unique Mediterranean selection (and popular rainbow cakes). However, I was surprised to find out that they recently launched an Asian Kitchen section – of course, largely to cater to our older folks who prefer their traditional white rice and soup for dinner. If you haven’t been to MEDZ, let…

Hoho Myoll Café @ Seoul, Korea

Folks, pay attention to this one alright! This café is by far the most impressive and most memorable one I’ve ever been to. If you’re intending to café-hop in Seoul, Hoho Myoll is one stop that you mustn’t miss. It is not located at any famous café streets; in fact the nearest ‘café’ from it was Danji….

“Coffee-drinking Cat” Café @ Samcheongdong, Seoul

If you happen to be afraid of cats like myself, this is a reassurance that there’re no live furry animals in this café. On the other hand, if you’re cat lover, don’t go away just yet, ‘cos this is one café that is worth a visit. The inviting storefront stands out amongst the endless options at Samcheongdong, thanks to…

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…

Plain Vanilla Café @ Yong Siak Street [Branch No. 2]

I’m definitely not the first one to visit Plain Vanilla’s new café at Yong Siak, since I’ve had their cupcakes on numerous occasions (Plain Vanilla Cupcake Review). Neither did I bother searching and reading reviews of Plain Vanilla, since I knew what I was in for (and well, I could have just referred to my…

Lolla @ Ann Siang Road

A quaint Mediterranean restaurant, Lolla struck me as a post-modern cuisine, aptly housed in a gentrified shophouse. Whilst the original facade remains, its a whole new world altogether inside. The menu is inspired by small plates, with less than 30 dishes in all, including desserts. The idea is for your to share and enjoy the…

Bloom & Goûté Café @ Apgujeong, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Instead of walking along Garosu-gil (a straight road), we went into the small lanes linking from the main road and chanced upon another world. A flower and cake shop, Bloom & Goute was tucked away in a secluded corner and it’s unsurprising that many people would miss it. In fact, if you asked me for…

Lady M Confections @ Marina Square

Hailing from The Big Apple is the highly-acclaimed confectionary Lady M, which has been featured in countless magazines, including the Oprah Magazine! Lady M prides itself in using ingredients of the highest quality to create these fine cakes, served at New York City’s top restaurants. It has landed on the shores of Singapore for the very…

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…

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…

Carpenter & Cook @ Upper Bukit Timah

The first time I stepped into Carpenter & Cook, it was like Alice stepping into Wonderland. It was overwhelming taking every detail in. A feast for the eyes, no doubt. Each piece of furniture, and down to forks, carries its own history, originating from a different country. All these pre-loved items culminate in a beautiful…

1-Caramel @ Rochester Park

Hidden and exclusive, you wind through paths and several water features before gaining entry into this white colonial house. On the ground floor, there are only three tables draped with heavy black cloth, accompanied by Tiffany chairs. That’s 1-Caramel for you. Outdoor seatings are aplenty but it’ll be nice to have some air-conditioning on a…

PAUL @ Ngee Ann City

PAUL opened its first store in Singapore a few months back and has seen a continuous stream of customers both for the bakery and the restaurant itself. There were mixed reviews about customer service and food standard at PAUL. My experience however, was a wonderful one. Orders were taken and served promptly, iced water was…

Vintage Tea Party: House @ Dempsey

Available only on Thursdays and Fridays of the week, House@Dempsey presents you with a very quaint Vintage Tea Party. Against the backdrop of lush greeneries, and among the worn-out pillars of the barrack are intricately placed English teacups and beautiful freshly-cut flowers. Small bite-sized desserts and finger food are placed on oh-so-darling dishes. Essentially, the…

Vineyard @ Hort Park

My girls and I decided to celebrate last New Year’s Eve at a nice restaurant and P found this lovely place called Vineyard, located at Hort Park. It feels like one of those restaurants located at Botanical Garden. The restaurant has ground-to-ceiling glass walls with an outdoor patio and lounge with rocking chairs. 🙂 Lots…
