The Ottomani @ Peck Seah Street

I wanted something special for my birthday dinner and chanced upon the newly branded The Ottomani (yes, I choose where to go for my birthday)! I have to say it was a great choice. The Ottomani is branded as a Middle Eastern restaurant but don’t brush it off as too exotic for you as Chef…

Sofitel City Centre Singapore @ Wallich Street

Opened in October, Sofitel City Centre is easily my current favourite hotel in Singapore! After experiencing both Sofitel SO and Sofitel Sentosa, I would say that Sofitel City Centre is the epitome of French luxury. From its interior design, to location and service,  I would give it 10 out of 10. While the check-in counter…

Teppei Japanese Restaurant @ Orchid Hotel

All the wonderful food above for only $88 – wagyu, toro and uni included! No wonder reservation at Teppei is still a must after 5 strong years of operation. With 2 seatings available at 6.30pm or 8.30pm, a batch of diners go in together and everyone will start their meal at the same time! That’s…

555 Villa Thai @ Changi

Ever missed Bangkok? Here’s an enclave to retreat to before the next +66 trip. Located in between the Changi Aiport and army base, it’s hard to imagine that any places of leisure and fun could exist there. With lots of colourful lights and graffiti, the vibes of Thailand was successfully recreated – complete with a…

Nesuto @ Tras Street

The Japanese-inspired cake selection here is pretty awesome, ranging from small exquisite cakes with many components within, to sliced cakes. They do not come cheap, but if you appreciate cakes, I know you’ll enjoy this. The cafe recommends tea-pairing with their cakes – a great combination for a nice afternoon tea! Miss Isphan ($10) – This…

Plentyfull @ Millenia Walk

A place of restoration, Plentyfull serves up honest, hearty food in a market table luncheon spread by day, and by night, it transforms into a modern brasserie that presents an ala carte menu inspired by seasonal, fresh and quality produce. I’ve visited Plentyfull three times – the first was to have tea, second was to have…

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ Serangoon Gardens

Nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Serangoon Gardens, Hajime is slowly garnering its own base of loyal customers since it opened its doors 6 months ago. Far from a run-of-the-mill neighbourhood Japanese bistro, Hajime is helmed by Chef Tan-San, the first Tonkatsu chef in Singapore! You may not know, but Chef Tan was hand-picked 25 years…

Cooking with Gourmet Greens @ ToTT

Two weeks ago, I attended a culinary class hosted by FIJI Water featuring two vegetable-centric dishes! You may be wondering, what’s FIJI Water got to do with cooking? Well, do you know that FIJI Water is the preferred water of choice for top chefs, restaurants and hotels around the world? Yes, it is incorporated within…

Peony Jade @ Keppel Club

Opened in 2008, Peony Jade Keppel Club has recently been minted as one of the Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants 2016!

Located at the trendy F&B cluster of Keong Saik, you will have no idea that behind the glass door is a steamboat restaurant as the front of the house…

Salted & Hung @ Purvis Street

New restaurant alert! I always get excited when the Unlisted Collection launches a new concept, because I know that whether it’s ambience or food, it will be top-notch. And I certainly was not disappointed. Opened on 12 June, what used to be 5th Quarter at Hotel Vagabond has been relaunched to become Salted & Hung at their new…

Takujo Fine Dining @ Emporium Shokuhin, Marina Square

Ever since Emporium Shokuhin opened, I’ve been frequenting the array of restaurants it offers (read reviews of Umi+Vino & Senmi Sushi). Takujo is one of the higher-end restaurants over here, providing high-quality cuts of meat and seafood, as well as a more exclusive, private environment as compared to its counterparts. At the start of the…

Kai Garden @ Marina Square

It’s merely one week away from Chinese New Year, yet I haven’t caught on with the season’s celebrations. How about you? If you’re looking for a Chinese restaurant to host your friends and relatives, look no further. One of the latest additions to Marina Square’s revamped Dining Edition, Kai Garden is a homely Cantonese restaurant…

Hotel Review: The South Beach Hotel @ Beach Road

First post of 2016 is dedicated to a hotel of where I spent the first minutes of 2016 at – the new The South Beach hotel. Designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck, the latest luxury hotel in Singapore boasts a capacity of 654 rooms and suites. The South Beach is a project that consists of…

Kakure Sake Bar @ Chateau TCC, Scotts Road

A first of its kind (at least to my knowledge), this boutique sake bar, Kakure, is an extension of omakase powerhouse, Ki-­sho. This 16-seater space provides an intimate first-­hand look into the hidden world of sake – something you can’t quite get yet in Singapore. Many of us would order sake to go with a Japanese…

The Audacious Cakery @ Everton Park

If you’ve been following the instagrams of popular bloggers, you’d have encountered these pretty cakes from The Audacious Cakery. I was more enticed by the name of the shop than the cakes when they first appeared on my feed though. A newcomer to Everton Park, The Audacious Cakery indeed created much hype within a short…
