Trattoria L’Operetta @ Tanjong Katong

Just a stone’s throw away from where I stay is Tanjong Katong Road, a stretch where many great restaurants can be found! My family loves going to the Italian restaurants here (there’re at least 3 along the same road) for an awesome and hearty meal, and the bonus is that no one will be judging…

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison @ Mandarin Gallery

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison may not be new, but I’ve finally found enough determination to resist the pull I get from Ippudo Ramen whenever I’m at Mandarin Gallery. If you don’t already know, Ippudo Ramen is my go-to place for a bowl of comforting ramen, specifically Akamaru Tamago Ramen (Hard). Now, back to Tonkatsu. I…

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant @ Intercontinental Hotel Singapore

Olive Tree Buffet Restaurant has been around for as long as I could remember. I was too excited to start attacking the food that I’ve missed out on taking photos of the environment. Located within Hotel Intercontinental, there is a light-well in the middle of the restaurant, with some influence of colonial times in its interior-architectural…

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…

Platypus Kitchen @ Bugis Junction

I found out about Platypus Kitchen only after their second branch at Bugis Junction was opened. I suppose Platypus Kitchen is not new to everyone as most working at Raffles Place would have already known about their first store at Clifford Centre, as it always garners long queues during lunch hour! Platypus Kitchen prides itself…

Oceans of Seafood @ PasarBella, The Grandstand

I found a real gem at the back of PasarBella where the freshest seafood are found! If you haven’t heard, PasarBella is a farmer’s market at The Grandstand, occupying a huge corner at the back of the main building, beside Giant supermarket. Upon entry, it feels as though you’ve been transported to a London weekend market. The vicinity has…

Sunday Brunch Buffet: Forest @ Equarius Hotel

Forest is a Chinese restaurant helmed by the higly-acclaimed Chef Sam Leong, located within the new Equarius Hotel, part of Resorts World Sentosa. On Sundays, Forest serves Sunday Brunch Buffet at $58 per adult and $28 per child below the age of 12, inclusive of fruit juices.  Lobby of the Equarius Hotel. Entrance to Forest….

Kilo at Pact @ Orchard Central

Orchard Central has many well-hidden gems that require certain amount of sheer luck to uncover. Located within a retail shop is Kilo at Pact that serves fusion food.  Concrete bar tables with wooden chairs and a centerpiece of cacti – elements of nature blended with urban ones. The right picture shows the logo of Kilo…

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…

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,…
