Wang Daebak Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Amoy Street

When my ex-boss said that she had found the best Korean BBQ place in Singapore – Wang Daebak, I knew I had to try. By coincidence (or not), Daebak also means awesome in Korean. I suppose there’s some truth in that! I visited the outlet at Amoy (the other one at China Square Central) and…

Mister Bossam Cafe @ Sinchon, Seoul [Korea Trip]

Near Ewha Womans University, there are many eateries and cafes that are extremely friendly to the wallet – think student-meal prices! I love Sinchon as it has my favourite waffles place (post next week) as well countless budget-friendly boutiques. We headed straight here on the first day and as it was around 10+am, many shops…

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…

Jamie’s Italian Singapore @ Vivocity

Jamie’s Italian has finally landed in Singapore after months of anticipation! After my dining experience at Jamie’s Italian in Oxford, I was more than delighted that his beautiful creations will be available locally. Not wanting to brave the (‘Singaporean’) queue, I called in advance only to find out in dismay that the next available booking…

Hai Di Lao Steamboat @ Clarke Quay

I was really excited to try out Hai Di Lao as it is a very famous steamboat restaurant chain in China, highly-raved for their bespoked service and quality ingredients for their customers. Read on to find out more! I was here at 5pm, on a Saturday night and only got a table at 7! Fret…

Shinjuku @ Cuppage Plaza

Cuppage Plaza seems to be an enclave for many authentic Japanese restaurants (and KTVs), with homely omakases served by the chefs and their family, and izakayas with menus in Japanese only. Upon entering Shinjuku, a small izakaya, you’ll be greeted by a Japanese lady in kimono and you’ll find yourself manuveuring between the small spaces of tables….

Table Manners @ Changi City Point

Little would I have known that the mall within the clusters of office will be so funky! Along with Table Manners, is a row of restaurants and bars that are perfect for after-hours chilling (and pigging out). Entrance to the indoor seating area. Al-fresco dining area is available too if you want to soak up…

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,…

Kuriya Dining @ Great World City

All these years, Kuriya has remained as one of my favourite Japanese restaurants in Singapore, and I feel that I just have to share this gem on my blog. Kuriya Dining is best known for their Kuriya Lunch Course which features the freshest, seasonal ingredients of the month (yep, menu is changed monthly). At $45/person,…

The restaurant serves a modern fusion of French-Japanese cuisine with exquisite platings and innovative food preparation. LP+Tetsu has an open-kitchen concept just at the front of the restaurant, where they perform their magic. There is a private dining room…
