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…

Smoke House Charcoal BBQ Buffet @ Great World City

We see throngs of Korean BBQ restaurants in Singapore but when it comes to Japanese BBQ, the choices are rather limited. Smoke House Charcoal BBQ is under the same management as Kuriya, thus it is unsurprising that it serves the best quality food. I was here for their Japanese Wagyu Beef BBQ Dinner Buffet and I was more than impressed…

Peranakan High Tea @ Indocafe, The White House

As I was searching for high tea places to go to in Orchard and came across one that offered Peranakan-style high-tea! My interest was instantly piqued – usually English or local inspired finger food are served for high tea, and this was certainly a first! Indocafe at The White House consists of 2 landed properties,…

白木屋 Shirokiya Japanese Healthy Dining Restaurant @ Cuppage Terrace

Whenever I hear the words “hotpot” and “collagen”, my interest piques, following my memorable experience of Bijin Nabe. Similarly, Shirokiya created their own signature hotpot that utilises collagen for its soup base and I was very eager to try it! Located at Cuppage Terrace, the vicinity is popular with Japanese who visit to find food close…

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…

Tea Cosy @ Plaza Singapura

Now, as you can see, Tea Cosy is a really pretty (and big) cafe within a shopping mall, situated just beside Spotlight! I was here previously for tea and I’ve decided to return to try their unique ala-carte dishes. I love their mismatched floral fabrics that dressed the tables and chairs and the porcelain cupids…

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar @ Wisma Food Republic

SHIOK!!! Maki they call this. This sushi roll has been plastered all over Instagram accounts, Facebook accounts etc. and I just had to go down to Wisma myself to try it. Situated beside Din Tai Fung, and sharing the vicinity with Food Republic is Koh Grill & Sushi Bar. It’s almost a restaurant by itself,…

Omakase: Sushi Ichi @ Scotts Square

Sushi Ichi is a Michelin-starred sushi restaurant hailing from Ginza in Tokyo. It is located within the new Scotts Square, providing an exquisite sushi experience for its customers. There are 5 sushi sets to choose from, starting from $60++. Omakase at $250/per person was the choice of this meal, consisting of Appetizer, Assorted Sashimi, 2 Assorted…

Marmalade Toast @ Ngee Ann City

Hidden at a secluded spot, away from the main shopping areas of Ngee Ann City is a cheerful, yellow-themed cafe. It serves salad and sandwiches and provides a good resting spot for some tea (and your feet). The capacity is quite small though and it can get quite crowded during tea time. Don’t the cupcakes…
